Book review - Alexandr's Reluctant Submissive by AnnMayburn(BDSMromance) 5 stars

Alexandr's Reluctant Submissive by Ann Mayburn
BDSM romance 
5/5 stars 


Note: This is part TWO of Alex and Jessica's story. Part ONE, Alexandr's Cherished Submissive, should be read first for the most enjoyment.

Having believed for five years that his wife and daughter are dead, Alexandr Novikov’s world changes forever when he discovers not only are they alive, but the vile person who tore his family apart was none other than his father, Jorg. Determined to make up for lost time, Alex sets about winning the hearts and trust of his wife and daughter, and healing the emotional damage done to Jessica by their forced separation. Easier said than done when jealousy rears its ugly head, and Jessica struggles to deal with all the women Alex was intimate with after her supposed death.

Jessica has prayed for a chance to reunite with Alex, to be the family they were meant to be, to reclaim and rebuild their relationship. Those prayers are finally answered, but she quickly realizes her husband still sees her as the naive twenty-year-old girl she used to be, the one who was content to let him run the show. Jessica’s grown up during their difficult time apart, and she’s no longer content being a piece of arm candy for her powerful husband. If he’s going to bring her back into the deadly world of the Russian mafia, Alex needs to realize that she’s strong enough to be his partner in name and in truth. Only as equals will they find courage enough to face the days ahead.

Especially since Jorg isn’t done meddling with their lives…and his latest actions will have deadly consequences for generations to come.

Warning: This book contains a rather kinky Bratva lord who likes to give his woman all the pleasure she can handle, with the help of his friends. It includes anal, F/F play, spanking, domestic discipline, and a M/F/F/M/F/M/F/M scene that'll make you squirm.


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. It's set in the world of the Russian bratvas (Russia mafia) which I find absolutely fascinating. The men are often ruthless killers but they will do anything for their bratva family and for the women they love. They also all seem to be huge, gorgeous, kinky and great in the sack!

This book picks up right where the previous book ended, where Alex has been reunited with his supposedly dead wife. Jessica is happy to be back in the arms of her husband but is terrified that this means she will be in danger from her evil and insane father in law again. Both Alex and Jessica have changed over the years - after the loss of his wife and child Alex lost all will to live and became cold and hard, while Jessica had to grow up fast and is no longer the naïve girl she once was. Jessica struggles to cope with her jealousy over the women Alex has been with since she 'died', and she worries about bringing up their daughter in this dangerous world. Can Alex and Jessica be happy, or will Alex's father, Jorg, destroy them again?

The chemistry between Alex and Jessica is as hot as it always was, and Alex is even more kinky and dominant. He is a fantastic character, one of my all time favourites. He's rugged, ruthless and ridiculously sexy - and his protectiveness and love for his family makes him even sexier. I love his daughter, Tatiana, too - she's such a cute little minx who has her tough daddy wrapped around her little finger!

There are some interesting twists in the storyline which ensured that I couldn't put this book down. I'm really hoping this isn't the last book in this series as I can't bear to say goodbye to this group of kinky characters. I'd love Maks story to be next, he deserves to be happy. Oh and we need Luka's story too. Oh and Krom's! We definitely need more books in this series please Ms Mayburn!

Alexandr's Reluctant Submissive receives five fabulous stars.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.
