Make You Mine (Nine Circles #2) by Jackie Ashenden New Release and Review

Make You Mine (Nine Circles #2)
by Jackie Ashenden
New Release and Review

Alex St. James was left with a choice. Pick up the dice and find where they lead, or walk away. Choosing to see where the snake-eyes go, Alex plays in a poker game run by the devil who haunts his past. He will risk everything to find answers—that is, until his alluring, enigmatic bodyguard, Katya, becomes someone he cannot risk losing…

Katya is fiercely conflicted. Aching to break free from Alex to track down her former lover, Katya agrees to one last job—to protect her dangerously sexy boss as he gambles his future in exchange for clarity about his past. As the stakes are raised, Katya's loyalty shifts from the man she loved to the man she swore to protect. But in order to get what she wants, Katya will have to go all in…

 4.5 out of 5 Stars

Katya and Alex have kept their distance so far.  Things are about to get interesting between them.  Alex needs to go to Monte Carlo and face Conrad.  He definitely needs back up and should not go alone.  What better solution than take Katya as his "companion" and so she can be undercover while protecting him.

Only one problem with that plan... these two have chemistry they have been denying for months.  The proximity and the circumstances between them are about to change.  Those walls are about to come crumbling down!

Besides being a passionate love story, this is a thriller.  There is so much going on that is a mystery.  Alex is such a complex character dealing with all the horrors he has survived.  Facing Conrad is both a scary proposition as well as a welcomed confrontation that may help him heal.

The only reason why this is not  5 Stars is because I have problems with the Katya's character.  I understand the background to this character and why she believes she has to stay strong and without emotions.  I just cannot fathom a Russian special forces soldies being allowed to just come and live here in the USA and not be under surveillance herself during our current times.  It was a bit too much for my suspension of disbelief.  Other than that, she is a great character and plays well against the character of Alex.

Cannot wait to read the next installment of this story.  There are still loose ends to tie up.
