Review & Cocktail: The Master by Kresley Cole

About The Master…

A need colder than Siberian winter meets an attitude hotter than the Florida sun in #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole’s sultry new Game Maker novel.

Everyone fears the Master…

Rich, irresistible politician/Mafya boss Maksimilian Sevastyan prefers tall, obedient blondes to fulfill his… complicated desires. That is, until the icy Russian encounters a disobedient brunette whose exquisite little body threatens his legendary restraint.

Except her.

Catarina Marín was a well-off young wife until her world fell apart. Now she’s hiding out, forced to start working as an escort in Miami. Her very first client is beyond gorgeous, but when he tells her what he plans to do to her, Cat almost walks out of the door.

If pleasure is a game, play to win.

After their mind-blowing encounter burns out of control, the lovers crave more. If they escape the deadly threats surrounding them, can Maksim overcome his past—to offer Cat his future? Only then will she tempt him with what he really wants: her, all tied up with a bow.

When it comes to cocktails in Mother Russia, vodka is where it’s at! Vodka, my favorite liquor of all, originated in Eastern Europe. And according to different sources, the first production was either in Poland in the 8th century or in the area of today’s Russia in the late 9th century. Now, I know this will seem…expected…but I have a new Master in my life. OH! And he drinks—you guessed it— Vodka.

In The Master, by Kresley Cole, The main character Maksimilian (Maxím) Sevastyan is a devastatingly handsome billionaire who usually prefers tall obedient blondes to fulfill his…singular BDSM desires. Maxím has a routine— a script he follows with each scheduled sexual encounter (female escorts only) …until he meets Catarina (Cat) Marin. Cat’s a little Latino spitfire that has just enough spunk to stop the big scary Russian Dominant in his tracks and question “What are you doing to me?”

This book is hot!  Seriously HOT! So whilst reading it, I needed something to cool me down. That is how The Moscow Master came to be. In my hand. While reading this book.

  1. Fill a copper mug with ice.
  2. Pour in vodka, lime juice, and ginger beer.
  3. Stir to combine all the ingredients.
