But, seriously. Will there be another hot Russian fafa? I want Krom and Maks' stories...
***** This is the second part of Alex and Jessica's story. The author advises readers to read Alexandr's Cherished Submissive prior to starting this installment.

I loved the rest of their story!

I loved reading about the continuation of Jessica and Alexander's love story.
It was the perfect blend of romance ,drama and a whole lotta kink.
It was nice reconnecting with others in the series. I'm hoping Maks finds his HEA.
5 ***** Amazing Stars

LOVE IT!! OMG Not only is the reunion of Alexandr & Jessica amazingly beautiful, watching Alex come back to life was like a miracle. They have so much to work through, Jessica lived as a married woman & Alex lived angry, broken, & most of all a Widower. She is jealous of all the women He was with, she understands, afterall, she was dead. Right? Was He supposed to be celibate? There were many women, some who tried to become the submissive / wife for Him. He wante

The Delight

Getting to see Alexandr and Jessica back together is a dream come true, but there isn't exactly a paradise waiting for these two. Intrigue keeps the story going, but sometime there was just too much sex. Yeah, I said it. Too much sex that I was numbly scanning the scenes to move on to something more substantial.

If you haven't read at least Alexandr's Cherished Submissive from this series, then you really don't want to read my revi

Love!! I have loved everything I've read from Ms. Mayburn, and I was so excited to finally get this one!

For this story to make sense, you really have to read Alexander's Cherished Submissive, because this is part 2 of the Alexander and Jessica's story. If you haven't read part one yet, then don't read part 2!!

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for a Wicked Reads~~

Do heed the advice of the blurb and read the first of this two part story before you read this book - and if you read it a while ago - reread it first, because. let's face it this is convoluted stuff, and getting back into it slowly will reduce your enjoyment of the whole. Even better would be to read it from the first book in the series - but I know, who has time to do that! I can't wait to hide away in a corner and re

OMG, I just love this whole series. This is the second part of Alex and Jessica’s story; you have to read both parts. This book had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I love the intensity of the relationship between Alex and Jessica. All the men are so big and alpha and so loveable even though they are so rough on the outside.

If you haven't read Alexandr's Cherished Submissive, I highly recommend reading it first!!!

Once I finished the first book, I was anxiously waiting to see how things would turn out for Jessica and Alex. I was not disappointed. Ann picked up right where she left off in Part One and pulled me into their lives. One of my favorite parts was waiting and waiting for the first temper tantrum from their daughter, with Alex spoiling her so much and how Jessica and Alex handled it. There was a lot of bagga

Well...First off, what a good series. It had it's ups and downs. I loved all the interaction between characters amongst the different reads. Alex and Jessica were by far the best of the storylines and this final chapter was great. Sort of. I loved following their reunion and how they were able to use their time apart to grow togther again. Tatiana cracks me up! Again, I felt that Jessica - while definitely into some wonderfully kinky stuff - became a different person when the ff stuff was happen ...more

Really enjoyed this book and Alex and Jessica's entire story. I loved that all the main characters in this series were a part of the book. I'm thinking Krom and Gwen are next. I really want Maks to find his love too. He makes me sad. Looking forward to whatever comes next.

I received this book from Net Galley for my honest review

I started this series with Ivan's Captive Submissive and I have been in love ever since. This book as well as every other book in this series is extremely sexy and worth every penny you spend on it!

This book is part two of Alexandr's story and you get to see what happens when two people that were sooo in love finally get back together after years of lies, deception and heartbreak.

Overall this book was GREAT! It is currently selling for 3.
*3.5 STARS*

ALEXANDR'S RELUCTANT SUBMISSIVE is the "conclusion" of Jessica and Alexandr's story and it brought back all the kink and sex that I loved in the first book while extending the mystery that is the world of the Russian Mafia that Ann Mayburn has created.

Let me say right now that if you haven't read part one of this story, ALEXANDR'S CHERISHED SUBMISSIVE, then you should stop reading this review right now. It's imperative that you read that book first before even attempt this one.

Ann Mayburn is one of those writers that makes you question, is she merely an author of great works or more of a mad scientist in disguise set out to torture her readers? I think all authors have a bit of that mad scientist streak in them, however Ann really hits that creative genius with Alexandr's Reluctant Submissive. And she really drives that home with this novel and tugs at readers heart strings left and right.

I've been waiting for the second part of Alex and Jessica's story for ages now, and boy was it worth the wait. To fully enjoy this book you need to read Alexandr's Cherished Submissive first, as this is where Alex and Jessica's story begins. I love Ann Mayburn's books, especially her Submissive's Wish series, and this book lived up to my insanely high expectations. It's emotional, heart wrenching and amazingly hot.

Emotional reunion, hot off-the-charts sex and suspense

This the continuing story of Alexandr and Jessica’s story. It was a beautiful, emotionally intense reunion, and my heart just broke for these two after a forced five years apart from each other. The first book ends with Jessica gone into hiding to protect Alex and their unborn child. This irrational plot devised by Jorg, Alex’s father and head of the Novikov Bratva, has everyone believing Jessica died in a car bomb, and a happy life as Alex k

This is part two of Alexandr and Jessica's story. If you haven't read Alexandr's Cherished Submissive yet, I suggest you do prior to reading this book. It's difficult to review this book without giving away spoilers, which I refuse to do, but I'll try my best. ;) Their story has been an emotional roller-coaster of a ride!

Marie's Tempting Reads ARC Review:

Alexandr's Reluctant Submissive is Part 2 to Jessica and Alex's story. It pretty much picks up where Part 1 ended. I enjoyed Alex and Jessica in Part 1 and found it to be emotional, heart-poundingly sexy, and super erotic. As I was reading Part 2, I found it to be even MORE wickedly sensual and MORE sweaty, and heart-wrenching, yet MORE powerful then the first part. Jessica is now more woman then she was in Part 1. Things have changed for her since their time ap

Ann Mayburn is another new author to me and this is the first book from her that I have read. But she has written other books but I have not read them yet I will be read them soon. This was a moving story about love and the devotion Jessica and Alex has for each other. Jessica showed how much by what she was willing to give up and protect her and Alex's baby from her father in-law. This book is set in the Russian Bratvas (Russian mafia). In the Bratvas families there are a lot them being killed. ...more
