Warning: Wear Oven Mitts While Reading!!!
Reviewed in the United States on January 16, 2020
If the Lion and the Mouse made me purr while reading, then the Mosquito and the ballerina is the love bug that bit hard. The author does warn that she is not responsible for impregnation after reading the book, and now I see why.
Misha, the cousin to Kazimir, is into techie stuff. He has built his career in technology business and numbers. However, his main obsession is Ava, the first Prima Ballerina for Russia. Ever since he first laid eyes on her he has stood in the shadows, taking care of her, buying her a condo, sending gifts, etc. But then one night he had a taste of her and the obsession turned into full beast mode possessiveness. But with his father’s funeral coming up, accidentally kidnapping Ava’s grandmother and then the issue of missing nukes- Misha is understandably overwhelmed and as long as he has Ava he will be alright. She is a balm to his hurt soul.
What I can say about this book is that it tugs at your attention. I think my eyesight went bad one night from reading too late into the wee hours of the morning. If I thought Kazimir was a powerhouse lover then Misha surpassed him in this tale, I mean my goodness! Poor Ava did not know what she was getting into! Misha is like a sexy, nerd kind of guy with a handsome face and chiseled body but he screws like he is the devil himself, goodness!
In this book, we still have Maxwell, the crazy Valentina and of course Kazimir and Emily are mentioned.
For a side story, this book actually wins in all areas: suspense, sex, characterization. This author is on a roll.
**I totally did not like how the author would “repeat certain histories of the ballet and another part where she did the same thing. I literally had to skip that whole part because it was an exact repetition from the previous page. Not sure if it was a typo or what, this is why the book technically would lose half a star. Proofreading is important.
Great story though and I will still buy the next book. Dirty Hearts.
