        When I m not chasing after my wild preschooler, I like to write super sexy romances and scorching hot erotica I live in Texas with a husband who could easily snag a job as an extra on History Channel s new Viking series, a sweet but rowdy three year old with Tetralogy of Fallot, and Bosley, our Great Dane with major mommy issues.I also have another dirty book writing alter ego, Lolita Lopez, who writes deliciously steamy tales for Ellora s Cave, Forever Yours Grand Central, Mischief Harper Collins UK, Siren Publishing and Cleis Press.

    1. This was alright. I LOVED Zel and wanted to give him a big fat hug. Sara was also a likable character. My problem was that the story was just to short for me to believe that these two formed this "happily ever after" bond. I needed moreIt was nice seeing some of the other guys though! I want Besian to get his HEA soon.


    2. NOTE: This is a novella! You're buying, Ivan & Alexei along with Zel, so this story ends at about 14%. Don't be upset about that, it's a heck of a deal.I really liked this quick story about Zel. He's got a tragic past, debts to pay off and Ivan Markovic riding his ass all the way to an MMA championship!Though connected to the Her Russian Protector series, this is written a bit differently. Written completely in 3rd person, there's more than just Hero and Heroine perspective happening. We als [...]


    3. 2.5 meh starsI loved Zel. What a sweet and honorable man! I did not, however, like Sera. For several reasons. Call her what you will, but she was a stripper and I am not a big fan. Plus she is not stripping because she has no choice. She has a successful business. She is stripping because it promoted her brand. Plus I just did not like her as a person. This next bit is my exception to being safe and a spoiler. (view spoiler)[ She was not cheating on a technicality. But she intended to sleep with [...]


    4. reread 5/08/16Impressive start to a new series! Loved the instant attraction between Zel, the MMA fighter and Sara, the sassy burlesque dancer. With similar backgrounds, H/h were quick to see that they were something special together instead of apart they discover that pasts can be forgiven if they wanted it bad enough. Ivan Markovic trained his fighters to win and think quick on their feet as he did with Alexei, and others from the Russian Protector series. The pace of the storyline was quick w [...]


    5. 3.0 RATING- I liked this story but overall, I thought everything just seemed rush, especially the end.I wish the author would have taken more time with the story and fleshed things out a bit more.

    7. Good short story! I liked being able to see some of the other characters in the Russian Protectors books and I especially liked to see the reason why Alexei and Shay were in Las Vegas. However, there were some editing errors that were a bit annoying. I think in the scheme of all the books, even though this book isn't technically part of the Her Russian Protector series, this should be read after Alexei so it will make sense. It could be read as a standalone, but I think the background story woul [...]


    8. I sort of expected more when I started this one, there were a lot of pages, things were going great, then all of a sudden it ended. I was wondering what the heck was going on, but the author put 2 of her other books in there. A good thing, but I just wasn't expecting it and thought I was getting more with this story.Zel's story broke my heart, I so wanted him to be happy, so when he went for things with the dancer I was happy. As we learned more about Sara and that she wasn't a stranger to the w [...]


    9. It was short and sweet. The book I purchased had Ivan's story and Alexi. If I known this I wouldn't have punched Alexei book two months ago. In this story you saw a different side of Besian, which I enjoyed. Character are tied together like they are one polygamist family from Utah.


    10. 4.5 This story is the best version of mild insta love and finding a soul mate. It's a quick novella with some of your favorite RR characters. Also, it's sexy, like way sexy.


    11. This is a short story but packs a huge punch.Zel Markovic's story was so good, his heartbreak was beyond painful. Zel just went through the motions, going into his last fight to finally pay off his debt to the Albanians. When the unexpected happens? He meets a woman who has turned his heart of stone back into flesh and her name is Sara Contreras.Sara Contreras fled Houston years ago to start over with her family. She has made a name and a brand for herself, got her family out of poverty and now [...]


    12. With a heavy heart I write this review. It seems these days Roxie Rivera is becoming a hit or a miss with me. Where she once was a one-click buy, I'm thinking about taking that privilege away. Zel is a book I'm pretty sure i could have lived without reading. He was never a main character or a character that piqued my interest. He's a man in debt to the mob. So what. Many others are in the same position. I'm tired of the second and third characters getting books when they are not needed.I did lik [...]

    14. I liked though I enjoyed seeing cameos from the Russian Protector series and learning the backgrounds of certain events rather than the romance. It felt rushed as this couple meets then within a day or two are planning a life together.

    16. Really short read that has me a bit disappointed in the quality of this one. Seems like the author has come to a standstill and the books don’t have that same depth to them as the others have. Zel and Sara’s relationship came off as rushed and more forced than the others. This took place over like three days and we’re supposed to believe the two really fell for each other. Maybe the next one will be better but I’m starting to doubt these now.


    17. Zel and Sara's story was sweet and dangerous, as always with RR. It was a nice avant-goût to Danila's (HRP#10). I can't wait for this book to be released, finally!Happy reading!An addicted reader.Follow my favorite books onInstagram@readonthedarkside


    18. I LOVE Roxie's Russian Protector Series however this is an insta-love novella which had the potential to be so much more. The new insights of some of our favourite Russian boys was good but felt rushed. I loved revisiting and spending time with Ivan and Erin, they are my favourite couple so far. I did enjoy this novella but it wasn't up to the usual 5 star Roxie standards.


    19. A short story between Alexei and possibly Ivan 2 showcases Zel. A fighter trained by Ivan who owes money to Besian, the notorious loan shark. He originally borrowed money for his son's health. But now that his son has passed, he has no reason to be invested in his fights other than to pay off his debt and be free.This is his last fight and he needs to remain focused. But when he finds a woman who makes him want to live again he makes the choice to get involved with her. After all, he hasn't had [...]


    20. Ivan, Ivan, IvanI'll admit, even I was surprised I bought this book. But darn you Roxie, telling me this would include tidbits of Ivan and Erin, did it. Ivan has been my favorite character since day one. But after her last few books I swore I was done with this author. They were seriously bad.This book though? I loved it. I LOVED the H and FINALLY we get a heroine worthy of him. Because like I said, the last few h's were HORRIBLE!Sara was super cute. I loved that she was a exotic dancer and it w [...]


    21. I love the entireHer Russian Protector Series by Roxie Rivera and while I was growing impatient waiting for the next book to release I wish someone told me about this one. I loved reading about Ivan and Erin again and I really liked the new character- h/H- in this book. A very fast yet interesting book. Quite intrigueing as is always the way with Ms. Rivera's novels. The book might be short but it has well illustrated characters, a good plot, some thrill and plenty of romance. This book reminded [...]


    22. I was disappointedI love Roxie Rivera, especially all of the Russian Protector and the related Fighting Connelly series, so I was excited to find this new story. I liked the storyline, as well as the hero and heroine, and was glad to get an update on some of the previous couples. What I didn't like was how short this was; I didn't realize it was just a novella. Although there were two bonus books included, they are previous releases that I already have. I would have liked for this to have been f [...]


    23. I adored this book, it left me with all the happy feels. It was a shorter read than some of Roxie Rivera's other books, and I devoured it in one sitting.It's the first book in the Markovic MMA series, and if the rest of the books continue like this one, it's going to be another awesome series from this author.Zel's story tugged hard on my heartstrings and Sara was a perfect match for him. The scenes between them were just sheer perfection; hot, sweet, steamy with a healthy dose of drama thrown i [...]


    24. Zel was a mma fighter for Ivan. In this book Ivan and Erin were already married. Zel was a single dad who had gotten in deep with the mob borrowing money to come to the U.S. for heart transplants for his young son. When his five year old finally lost the fight Zel just shut down. Deep in debt to the Albanians, Beasin gave him some time to grieve without sending enforcers. Now Zel was back to fight in Vegas with Ivan as his coach. His win or lose meant a lot for the Russians and the Albanians. Bu [...]


    25. This book didn't satisfy as prior Roxie Rivera reads. The character of Zel Tesla from prior RR series had potential but this book didn't deliver for me. I didn't understand the connection between the H/h (instasex yes). If the author hadn't had such character development in prior reads, I wouldn't have the expectation. The only thing that carried this book for me was the interaction from secondary characters from prior series. I don't like to be so negative in my reviews but it felt as though pa [...]


    26. Roxie delivers another fantastic story with this novella. It comes with book one and book eight of the Her Russian Protector series as bonuses. Great deal for the price. Zel is a great character and I loved that he sees Sara, not her stage persona. Their mutual attraction burns hot and there's a nice bit of spice. I loved that Sara lets herself be vulnerable and puts it all out there wanting it all with Zel. I can't wait to see more of these two in future books.Highly recommended author and seri [...]


    27. I was disappointed with this, It was a short story all squeezed into ten chapters then to make up for it being rushed you got added bonus of Ivan's and alexei,s story's which didn't bother me because I've already pre bought their storys. It would have been better to just have released Zel,s story as a short story instead of making it look like its a 500 and odd page book to open it and find ten chapters.On a good note you get to read more on some of the original Russians which was something I di [...]


    28. So I'm only going to be writing this review on the book Zel, not the extra stories that have already been released. That being said, I wish I would've read this was just a novella. But this was a cute short read. Zel's story broke my heart. For him to overcome such a loss speaks to the strength of him as a person. Sara has embraced who she is and her body. She's taken a crappy situation and turned her life around to care for her family.I really hope we get to see more from this couple. I loved g [...]


    29. I was so happy to see another book by this author, and I enjoyed it, but it just seemed that the book was titled Zel, and even though there was ample storyline for him, I felt that the majority of the book was Sara. Again maybe it was because I was expecting Zel to be all alpha but I just felt as if he was lead around by Sara, not saying that all males have to be overpowering alphas it was just different. it was nice to see glimpses into the other characters from the other books as well. Keep th [...]


    30. Oh, where to start with this sweet, hot and sexy little story???It is a love at first site, and then straight to the action, and what hot action it is, like, so sexy from the very start! There is some drama and ties to others in the story, I mean, this is a side boom related to the Russian stories, so, duhEither way, Zel and Sara have crazy chemistry, they sizzle off the pages and will leave you all hot and bothered, so in other words, a perfect story!
