Summary

Power. That’s what I think of when I spot him across the ER. Power and danger.

One of the wealthiest Russian oligarchs, Alex Volkov is as ruthless as he is magnetic. He always gets what he wants, and what he wants is me, in his bed.

He’s the kind of trouble every woman should run from. The bullet his bodyguard took for him proves that.

I should stay far away, but for one night, I give in to temptation. Before I know it, he’s pulling me deeper into his world of excess and violence, invading not only my life but my heart.

How much trust can I place in a man so dangerous? How much do I dare risk for his love?

IT’S REALLY GREAT 💕.. BUT IT’S ALSO A CLIFFHANGER

They meet while Nurse Kate is trying to save his Bodyguard from dying and the chemistry between Kate and the handsome, charismatic Russian is electric. Oil Baron and Oligarch Alex Volkov is used to getting what he wants and he desperately wants Kate - so he subtlety and shamelessly makes his moves. But despite the obvious attraction, heated stares and sizzles, it takes a few days and a bit of convincing before Kate agrees to a one night stand with the dark, dangerous, determined force that is Alex Volkov. Then the ‘one and done’ becomes a game-changer when the intense and obsessed Russian wants more.. and more.. and much much more than Kate ever dreamed of when his single-minded seductive pursuit finally breaks down all her defence. However, as Kate gets lured into Alex’s world, the sizzles and sex might be great, but how does she fit into his very different mysterious lifestyle?.. how much can she truly know him when he’s keeping secrets from her?.. how can she stop herself from falling in love with her jealous, possessive, protective lover?.. and how stuck is she in Alex’s well spun web of sins and secrets?

Worth a credit? Yes, I really enjoyed Kate’s well-written and addictive journey as she meets and truly tries to resist the dark dangerous force that is Alex Volkov.. and the push n pull, the pace and the flow and the anticipation of their relationship is deliciously climactic. Told from Kate’s POV as she tries to navigate her feelings caught in a relationship that’s lured her in despite her dubious reservations for Alex.. and then moves very quickly thanks to Alex’s possessive nature and perhaps ultimate plans. And, despite this book being low angst, I’m sure there’ll be threats, danger, deaths, drama and angst to drool over in book 2 when Alex’s web catches and clashes with Kate. CJ Bloom did a fantastic job with the narration.. but sadly Sebastian York only narrated the Prologue and two chapters where enemies plotted and planned something big. The cliffhanger ending promises angst, suspense and drama to come in November/December and I can’t wait to hear and experience more from these two wickedly devious and wickedly talented authors.

White Nights is a steamy listen!

Sebastian York only have a couple of short chapters but he doesn’t disappoint. His voice and narration was wonderful!
CJ Bloom practically narrated the whole book but she was superb in her performance.

This is book 1 of Alex and Kate’s story and it was scorching hot. She’s a nurse and he’s a Russian zillionaire and their chemistry was amazing. I love the fact that Kate have a backbone and it was fun how Alex had to resort to the most cliche ways of romancing her. I’m glad this first book didn’t end in a big cliffhanger. I can’t wait for Midnight Days.

Absolutely sizzles!

Audiobook: Narrators - CJ Bloom & Sebastian York

These narrators did an excellent job of bringing Alex and Kate to life. Some of these characters spoke with an accent and they both did a very nice job of adding that to the story. The sizzle and intensity between these characters was tangible in the voices of both Bloom and York.

The story itself is filled with alpha goodness, relatively low in angst but with the threat of danger lurking behind each page making me anticipate when it was all going to unravel. This is mostly about the build up of the relationship but it’s filled with some steamy smexy moments.

Definitely worth listening to but be forewarned, this ends in a cliffhanger! However, the next book isn’t too far behind. I can’t wait!

5 STARS

I absolutely loved this book! Alex was everything I like in an anti-hero. He was jealous possessive, mysterious and didn't back off once his mind was made up. He gave me tingles every time he took charge. Kate is such a kind person and a little over her head when it comes to Alex's world. She did try to put up some resistance but Alex is a force. There is plenty of steamy scenes as well as some sweet ones. The book ends with a lot of questions and I can't wait to for the next book.

Narration was perfect! CJ did a great job with the accent IMO. SebYo only narrates a few chapters.

a great story to listen to

I loved White Nights from beginning to end. Alex is definitely on my list of book boyfriends ;-) he's just the right mix of power and possessiveness. The chemistry between Alex and Katerina is electric and one I enjoyed the narrator's and look forward to Midnight Days.

Great Writing

Not that CJ doesn't do an amazing job ..I do love her! But Sebastian is only in a few chapters...very short and brief. I hope the next one has many more chapters and longer with Sebastian.

White Nights

This book was an amazing kindle read that has all the excitement , romance and crazy sensual scenes as well as surprises, thrills and some danger. I loved the book but hearing it in audible by fantastic narrators made the story come alive once again. Both narrators were excellent. I wish Sebastian York had more speaking parts but his pov would need to be increased in future books for that. Absolutely an excellent listen even if you’ve read the book.

Female lead character is too annoying

I usually like Anna Zaires’ books, but there were a couple of big things I didn’t like about this one. First, the female lead character was incredibly annoying. Almost 3/4 of the book she was determined not to be with the male character and acted like a hysterical, obstinate jerk. I honestly have no idea what he saw in her, which takes me to the second point. With the exception of a few pages where Sebastian York narrates for a character other than the male lead, the story is told from the annoying female’s point of view. I got so irritated with her childish thoughts and behavior that I fast forwarded quite a bit. At least if some of the story was told from the male lead’s point of view, the reader might have been able to figure out what he saw in her, but that never happened. It also felt like a bait and switch seeing Sebastian York as one of the narrators when he had so little involvement in the audiobook.
