    This series keep on getting better and better. Theses Russian gods are HAWT! With each book we see the relationship that binds theses friends and making them brothers. Past secrets keep on revealing. Each time we see what happened in each of their past that effected them and made them who they are today.I can't choose a favorite; because each book it's a new one, i love them all, they all have that sexy appeal on a woman. Those are the kind of guys that you simply don't walk away from, that you remember them for ever. Amazing series. Have ALOT of potentials to be a great mystery thriller instead of a fast sexy read. But hay i'm not complaining.

    Not my favourite!I loved Yuri, the storyline was engaging and kept me interested.But, I could not warm to the h Lena!Maybe it was the constant updating twitter/fb thing! Annoying!Maybe it was her constantly throwing up Yuri's past in his face. Annoying!Maybe it was her demand he change. Annoying!Maybe it was her admission she would continue to throw up something he did that upset her, something he apologised for, but whenever she got annoyed in the future she said she would probably throw it up in his face! Annoying!The poor man has already had to apologise for having a life and other women before he ever met her! Seems he will spend his life apologising for not meeting her demands!I just thought Yuri deserved better!

    3.5 stars.I enjoyed this one despite the lack of emotional tug. There was more humor and playfulness in this story. There was enough plot that I didn't feel that the sex overshadowed it. I liked the dog the best.

    I really enjoyed the story of Yuri and Lena. Yuri is a sexy strong alpha male who overcame a tragic past in Russia to become a successful billionaire businessman. Yelena or Lena is feisty, confident, independent PR rep who also overcame a tough childhood with her criminal father and missing mother. Yuri has wanted Lena for a while but it isn’t until she storms up to him in his nightclub to tell him off that he finally makes his move. And what a move it is. He sweeps her off her feet, seduces her and tears down the walls she has built around her heart. Throw in a botched robbery, a kidnapping, private plane rides and a yacht and you have a pretty damn good love story.Like I said I enjoyed this book. I enjoyed the chemistry between Yuri and Lena. I enjoyed the unfailing brotherhood between Yuri, Ivan, Dimitri and Nikolai. And most of all I enjoyed Sasha the behemoth dog. I am looking forward to Nikolai and Vivian’s book.

    Lena has fought her way to live life on the straight and narrow, after growing up with a father who had a revolving door to prison and a family of crooks, she knew she wanted no part of it. When her job as a PR is sabotaged, she believes she knows who is behind it, Yuri.Russian billionaire Yuri has wanted Lena since the moment he met her. When she storms in ready to raise holy hell, he quickly handles it and gets her to agree to a date. A rocky start leads to a boggled burglary that puts Lena at risk. Yuri knows she is the one, but Lena is not used to trusting anyone, let alone Yuri. Yuri decides to prove to Lena he is worth the trust knowing he will never let her go.This was a super fun read, not sure why I did not discover it earlier. Yuri is dangerous but also head over heels for Lena. I liked that the story had some intense moments and then it would have a bit of humor that completely catches you off guard. Picking up the rest of the series.

    This is my favorite so far. Dimitri and Benny were good and enjoyable but this deserves 5 awesomesauce stars for Lena and Yuri. But the star of the book is Sasha the dog.I'm always for the underdogs. Coming from nothing and achieving everything and then finding someone to share it with. Lena aka Dragon Lady (or in her case she says that she is testy) has had enough of her job for doing PR for nightclubs. As one of her funstions doesn't go as planned she then heads off from 716 to Faze to rip Yuri a new one. Yuri and his brothers Ivan, Dimitri and Nikolai have had a tough deal in life and have been through thick and thin. In this case with the fencing and Yuri's past coming back to haunt him is no different. Yuri is a millionaire but realises that he wants the love a good woman. Lena and Yuri's banter is great and they have great chemistry going on. Lena can stand up to Yuri and he is not used to hearing no. I guessed who the crazy one in the book was but I still loved it. I loved how we also got to see Kelly in this book.

    Yuri and Lena were a lot of fun. Having already met in the previous books, you could tell it was only a matter of time before these two got together. These two each had really rough childhoods, so one thing I really enjoyed about this story was how much they related to one another. And with that understanding of the other, they were able to help one another and it made their chemistry even more tangible. I could feel their bond and the building of their love and trust. Add in the excitement of the criminal activities around them, and this was a great read. I'm definitely sticking with this series.

    **2.5 Stars**For me, this was my least favourite book of the series so far. It was close to being a 2 star read, but the last third of the book perked up a little. The rest of the story though was weak.Here are the issues I had:*I can't put my finger on it, but I couldn't warm to Lena.(view spoiler)[*Lena apparently couldn't orgasm with a partner, yet Yuri coaxed one out of her in record time. So the 'no-orgasm' thing ended up being a complete non-issue.*How did Lena know her cousin was the intruder so early on??!! Not only was it dark, and she had just awoken, but he was wearing a ski-mask! (hide spoiler)]*Yuri was a savvy billionaire businessman, yet took business advice from Lena, who couldn't even hold down a job of her own.*There was one part of the story that really annoyed me, and this is how it played out:(view spoiler)[Yuri stood Lena up on their date, and never personally let her know. Not cool.Lena found out he was still in Berlin and at a charity event with his stunning ex-girlfriend as his date. Again, not cool.Lena drunk-called Yuri (who was still in Berlin), abusing him from a height. Even less cool.Yuri rang Nikolai in the middle of the night, and asked him to bring Lena home from the club. Say what?!Yuri then hopped on his private jet to get back to smooth things over with Lena, even though he was in the middle of closing a major business deal. Could he not have waited a day or two?!And then, after all that unnecessary drama, all was forgiven at the drop of a hat! She could have at least made him suffer a bit. And after the drunk-calling, Yuri should have changed Lena's name in his phone to 'Do Not Answer'. Ain't nobody got time for that. (hide spoiler)]Made for each other. The men in all the books so far are portrayed as dark and gritty, yet are pussy-whipped in no time. I want more from Nikolai's story next, and that's why I continued on with Yuri's book. So far, Nikolai has been touted as dangerous and a tortured soul, and if he's anything less than this, his book will be a DNF for me.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    This was by far the best in the series yet. I loved how spunky and strong Lena was. She didn't need to be rescued or saved by a hot Russian, and she made Yuri WORK for her attention and affection. Yuri was a fantastic alpha male and Lena didn't hesitate to call him out on his caveman ways. The chemistry between these two was really great and I thought they complimented each other very well. I loved how they both basically came from nothing and worked their way to success and were therefore able to really understand and identify with one another. And I must say, Sasha was a 5-star addition to this story!

    More of a 3.5 ♥'s rounded up to 4 on here. I didn't like this one as much as I was expecting to with the build up that we had during Dimitri's book. Yuri - for being as smart and supposedly ruthless in business as he has been described to us - when it comes to getting the girl that is supposedly 'the one' - he was a total idiot and did some really stupid shit. Granted Lena did some stupid stuff too but she didn't have a love/leave 'em past. Anyway - they ended up being sweet together - I still want my very own Dimitri though.

    There are fun elements to this series. Its very operatic with guns, sad childhoods, grand love, and sexy leads.I enjoy it. There was a good amount of couple time and I liked this one better than the first in the series. I figured out the mystery pretty early on but that didn't really bother me. Sasha the dog is great. The billionaire thing bothers me a bit but I can see the pleasure in limitless funds and just sink into the bubble bath of a book.

    HOT RUSSIANThird book in the Russian Protector series. This story is about Yuri Novakovsky and Lena Cruz. Yuri has been attracted to Lena for months but hasn't made a move to ask her out, there have been a few problems between him and Lena, she blames him for a couple of things that have impacted on her job as a PR representative.But when the opportunity arises Yuri swoops into make Lena his. She's not a woman who is impressed by his billionaire status, if anything with Lena that's working against him. But he senses she's as attracted to him as he is her. But as problems crop up with her family, and his past dealings, and their lives come under threat.I'm loving this series each book has a hot sexy Russian, Yuri is a billionaire, like his friends who feature in the other books, his early life was not easy, he has worked hard to get where is is. He has had plenty of women come and go but none had got under his skin like Lena. I liked Yuri he's not just hot and sexy but he's a loyal and passionate man. Lena is strong and feisty she was a delight. Together they were a great pairing. Added to the romance was plenty of drama and action. A recommended read.Looking forward to the last book in the series featuring Nikolai and Vivian.

    Every book I read by Roxie Rivera makes me love her more. She's phenomenal. Her stories are tight, action-packed, and sexy as all get out. Yuri and Lena were fabulous, and I'm so pleased with their romance, which I highly anticipated after the first two in this series, but my favorite part of this book was Sasha, the dog. Sorry Yuri and Lena, but Sasha kind of stole the the best possible way.I learned about a new (enormous) breed of dog, added several media and PR terms to my mental lexicon, and got a very sweet happy-ever after.Two things stand out to me about Roxie's writing. One is her excellent dialog. The other is her ability to write honest conflict. Her heroines get their feelings hurt by their alpha male Russian protectors, but they also use their heads. They don't run off in a tizzy and put themselves in harm's way just to make a point. They fume and rage with the best of them, but they make smart decisions and they --GASP-- give their heroes the benefit of the doubt. They have forgiving natures and this lets the conflict come from genuine sources rather than from misunderstandings.Nicely done, Roxie. You've made it to my auto-buy list.

    In volumul patru al acestei serii ,autoarea spune poveste lui Yuri.Este putred de bogat,iar arogana lui este cunoscuta in toata lumea.Are tot ce-si doreste.Bani,celebritate,femei si sustinerea neconditionata a celor trei prieteni ai lui.Lena este PR de meserie.Provine dintr-o familie de delicventi,dar a stiut sa se tina departe de probleme si si-a construit singura o cariera de succes.Prin intermediul prietenelor ei l-a cunoscut pe Yuri,si inca de la inceput nu s-au supotrat.Intre ura si iubire este doar un pas,iar faptul ca atractia dintre ei este mare le-a complicat relatia si mai mult.Mi-a placut cartea.Este mult mai interesanta decat cele precedente,pentru ca autoarea dezvaluie cu aceasta ocazie mai mult din istoria celor patru prieteni.Cum s-au cunoscut la orfelinat,care era viata lor in Rusia,dar si alte secrete din viata lor actuala.Actiunea si suspansul au fost mai predominante,si lucrul acesta mi-a placut.Acord 4.5 stele acestei carti,si astept cu nerabdare sa citesc volumul urmator.Nu de alta, dar Nikolai este cel mai interesant dintre cei patru.

    Each book in this series is better than the one before it. Yuri is the man who seems to have it all but he doesn't have anything that matters. He's been in love with Lena from afar for what seems like ages but she doesn't like him at all or that's what it seems like to Yuri. Yuri is a successful businessman, Lena is a PR master. Both have issues from their pasts that are coming back to haunt them. Problems will have to be overcome including kidnapping, Mexican cartels, high end art thieves, and a crazed psycho along with long buried secrets coming back to haunt them. It seems at times these two will never catch a break. This was a solid 4 star read that I enjoyed immensely.

    I enjoyed book 1, Ivan and book 2 Dmitri. In Yuri, I felt the intimate scenes lacked chemistry for some reason. I'm having trouble putting it into words, it just seemed like hero and heroine were going through the motions. There were a few parts where the dog kept scratching at the door and interrupting them. He was supposed to be a highly trained guard dog and this seemed out of character. It was just ok, but worth reading. I think the best parts of Yuri were the glimpses of Nikolai and Vivan and the information we are given about their pasts. I eagerly await Nikolai's book.

    3.5 Stars. This was the first book I've read by Roxie Rivera and it can be read as a stand alone (I did). I might have enjoyed it more if I'd read the previous books since I believe both characters were introduced in those books. I liked both characters and the humor. The suspense was pretty good and while the book didn't draw me in as much as I wanted I still enjoyed it. Loved the big ol' dog! The secondary characters were intriguing and I could see reading another book in this series.

    I loved the whole series. This is book one, short and sweet. I love the Russian Protectors, they love and protect their women and put them and their safety above all else. The books however also have action and drama and absolutely riveting.I absolutely loved how Vivian embraced her man even though she knew he was the Mob Boss! Love that about her, she is kick ass too in my bookGreat Series I recommend it, worth the read.
