Genre: Erotic thriller
heart of Russia and the arms of the Russian Mafia. As things begin to heat up, are he and Cassandra finally out of their depth?
This is the sequel to the excellent Countermeasures and features all of the characters who first appeared there, continuing their story as Trevor hunts for the truth. It is slightly longer than Countermeasures and is still a highly enjoyable and entertaining read! Once again, parts of the book are not for the faint-hearted as there are again some very explicitly described scenes of a highly sexual nature included in the plot, but this is very well written
and really pulls you into the story. It is great to see the continuation of Trevor and Cassandra’s story and to catch up with them several months along from the first book and I loved the idea of taking them both out of their comfort zone and throwing them to the wolves once more.
I was going to give this only four stars, not because of any deterioration in the quality of writing but simply because I didn’t think this was quite as gripping as Countermeasures or as fast-paced. As this book moves closer towards its explosive finale, the novel ups the ante and the level of tension lifting this back up to a five!
I am still not exactly sure who is this series is aimed at (is it marketed towards those who love Erotic Romance but yearn desperately for more plot or for readers of espionage, spy-type thrillers who crave much more explicit sexual content with their latest James Bond fix?). Tthat doesn’t really matter because what the authors set out to achieve here hits all the right buttons and does it well! This series is both thrilling and highly engaging at the same time.
I really loved this and thought it an excellent sequel. I can’t wait to catch up with the characters again and look forward to getting some more answers next time around but this is one book that I can highly recommend.....both as a stand-alone and as a follow-up to the brilliant Countermeasures. Miss this and you will be missing a treat!
To Russia With Love is a really good, cracking, cyber-thriller with extra added spice and more than a little heat!
