Cold – Spotlight

29848678Meeting gorgeous, rich, and urbane Nikolai Barinov outside of his bar, the most exclusive in New York, isn’t fate. It’s something darker, and much more dangerous. And although he doesn’t know if he can trust me, he can’t help falling for me. He would have been better off believing his instincts. He’s not who he pretends to be, but what he doesn’t know is, neither am I.

Piquing his interest will be the easy part. Seducing him is necessary. But discovering who we both really are might make us realize the hardest truth, our futures were never really our own to begin with.

This is a stand alone contemporary romance, with NO CLIFFHANGER, and a bit of intrigue, secrets, and lies.

This book was so unique and original. Cold is gripping, suspenseful, sexy, saddening and even shocking!
You will understand and sympathize with the characters… and fall for them from head to toe!
Nik and Arabella are sensational, sexy, intriguing and glide wonderfully together… but can that last? Can the feelings be real or are they a means to an end?!!!
I enjoyed this book from start to finish.

Full of intrigue, suspense and an unexpected and unwanted romance.
Arabella has a plan and it involves Nikolai – son of a Russian mobster. Nikolai is cold and calculating, goes after what he wants and won’t stop until he gets it. He wants Arabella, which fits nicely into her plan. What she doesn’t expect is that she will fall for him.
Nikolai’s actions and behaviour sometimes come across as childish rather than alpha male. While he is portrayed as cold, underneath is someone who just wants affection for the man he is rather than for what he does and has.
Arabella’s calculating plan doesn’t count on her own feelings for him getting in the way or betrayals from elsewhere, keeping this a fast paced and an on the edge of your seat read.
This was excellently written, with a good pace, strong characters and the right balance between all the different elements. Melissa Silvey is an author I will be coming back to in the future.

6949604Like one of her characters, Melissa doesn’t reveal much about herself at first glance. She’s shy and reserved, she’s socially awkward, and she constantly says the wrong thing at the wrong time. But if you take the time to get to know her, you’ll see she knows how to have fun! Give her a few drinks, and she’ll have you laughing and dancing in no time. In her mind, she’s the greatest dj ever, and she especially loves upbeat 80’s music. She started writing short stories and poems in elementary school, basically as soon as she picked up a pencil. When she’s not writing, and studying (the end IS near!) she enjoys watching football, hockey, and she really loves live music (live, not recorded), and she will sing off key constantly (as long as no one else is around). She’s also a huge moviephile, preferring big budget action movies. Also, she has several television shows she MUST watch, and if you interfere with her shows she will get angry! Get to know Melissa Silvey, and her characters.
