Nikolai (Her Russian Protector, Book # 4) by Roxie Rivera

I've already read the first three novels in the Her Russian Protector Series by Roxie Rivera, so decided to download and listen to the unabridged audio version of Nikolai (Her Russian Protector, Book # 4) by Roxie Rivera and narrated by Pinky Powell from Audible.

Listening time for Nikolai (Her Russian Protector, Book # 4) by Roxie Rivera is 9 hours, 22 minutes.

First off, let me state for the record that I wasn't impressed with Pinky Powell as a narrator. Ms. Powell is unable do a very convincing Russian accent... Her  Russian accent for the Russian characters in this novel was just all wrong. Plus, Vivian (Nikolai's love interest) has appeared in a previous book(s) written by Roxie Rivera, but I didn't feel that Pinky Powell captured Vivian how I envisioned her to speak and act.

As far as the novel, Nikolai (Her Russian Protector, Book # 4) by Roxie Rivera goes, I have mixed feelings about this novel after listening to it. I am glad I listened to it as I've already read the other novels in the series and like to try reading the entire series if I like it. But Nikolai (Her Russian Protector, Book # 4) by Roxie Rivera isn't the best novel in the series in my opinion. There were things that Nikolai has done in his life that I was surprised that Vivian wasn't very upset by or angry at Nikolai for doing. Also, for being a juvenile delinquent as a youngster, Vivian was a goody two shoes, which was surprising... And the sex scenes weren't all that hot. Additionally, the storyline/plot in general wasn't all that good either.

The following is a plot summary for Nikolai (Her Russian Protector, Book # 4) by Roxie Rivera from Audible:
After a brush with death as a juvenile delinquent, Vivian swore she'd never stray across that line again - but there's just one problem with her plan to stay on the right side of the law. She's completely, irrevocably and unabashedly in love with Nikolai, the Russian mob boss who saved her life.
From the moment Vivian appeared in his life on that tragic April night, Nikolai felt himself inextricably bonded to her. She's the bright light in his dark world and the only thing that keeps him from sliding deeper into a life of crime and violence - a mobbed-up life he can't escape no matter how hard he tries.
After Vivian is ripped from his arms in a brazen blitz attack, Nikolai will stop at nothing to get her back - but rescuing her and keeping her safe in his arms isn't enough. Suddenly, Nikolai's only chance to keep her safe is to do the one thing he vowed never to do - he'll drag her deeper into his shadowy world and bind her to him forever.

Because their tangled pasts are about to collide and the shockwave threatens to bring Houston's criminal underbelly to its knees....
I am giving Nikolai (Her Russian Protector, Book # 4) by Roxie Rivera a rating of 2 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!
