Gold Digger

Gold Digger - Aleksandr Voinov 4 stars although I’m tempted to add 1 for SF lingering side effectsGold Digger is a sweet, sensual romance in the middle of a business war. Henri notices Nicolai who is presenting his corporation in the hope of finding a financial partnership and from then onwards launches a takeover on Nicolai’s body and heart. His seduction is first purely, splendidly erotic, an affect of all senses, arousing sexual desire and finding chemistry, leading to a sweet, romantic pursuit and very hot encounters.The war rages in the background, adding some suspense and offering an unexpected pretty twist.It is also a story with characters who come to terms without excessive drama with their family and who they are outside being the child of somebody. The few reflexions on parent/child relationship scattered all around the book and the father/son moments with Vadim (*bites knuckles*) give just the right amount of depth to the characters and to the story.Now, I’m a SF fan and a Vadim girl (you know, the waiter lingering adoringly in Vadim’s wake…).I was thrilled to have him back and have a glimpse of his life after Special Forces - Veterans!Of course I projected! My mind intertwined the mythology of Gold Digger with the fable of Special Forces and the story became also about Nicolai being the lion’s child (contrary to being the spetsnaz’s child) and I loved this superimposed picture all along.Anyway, SF fan or not, Gold Digger is a very enjoyable reading and I dare you not to melt and fan yourself.“They worked together, every gleaming line, every taut muscle.”
