Overview

One night in Bangkok changes all the rules.

Professional chess player Aleksandr Shastin never lets emotions rule his life, or his game. Not even the unexpected death of his mentor shakes his icy control—at least that’s what he thinks. Until he meets a woman in a Bangkok rooftop bar, a woman whose raw sexuality and emotional honesty find every invisible crack…and pries them wide open.

Graphic artist Izzy Cornwall fled to Thailand to escape suffocating grief and guilt after her sister’s suicide. As she locks gazes with Aleks, their instant attraction sets her on fire. And the way he looks at her makes her feel what she hasn’t felt in months: that she actually exists.

In the heat of a Bangkok rainstorm, their chemistry steams up what was supposed to be one night of pain-numbing passion. Neither expected that a single encounter would change all the rules, making Aleks the novice, and Izzy the grandmaster. But if Izzy wants his heart, she’ll have to show him that in order to win, sometimes you have to lose.

Warning: Contains one hot, controlling Russian chess master, a heroine who’s more than capable of taking him on in a game of strip chess, and a checkmate to make Kasparov proud.

This was an amazing book. The story of Aleks Shastin and Izzy Cornwall starts off in Bangkok in a storm. But the tropical rain is nothing to the storm that's about to break when Izzy and Aleks face off. Both of them are grieving, looking for a way to forget and the physical between them is explosive. But for ice cold Aleks and emotional Izzy it was never going to stop there. I loved the way the two of them interacted. For all the physical was the dominating connection between the two, you can see both of them changing, growing, revealing themselves. And there is a whole lot hidden behind Aleks cold facade. Even Izzy, open and prepared to let it all out there, has her secrets. I loved this story and really connected with all the emotion bubbling under the surface of both Aleks and Izzy.  And the Ending. I cried three times. It was amazing. Beautiful. Just so.... *cries*
