Blog Tour: Dessert (The Winemaker's Dinner #3) by Ivan Rusilko


Left on bended knee, with nothing but a ring in his hand and a gaping hole in his chest, Ivan Rusilko lost everything when Jaden Thorne said, “I can’t.”

Now, six months later and despite her endless attempts to reach him, finding forgiveness for Jaden’s indiscretion is last on his list of things to do. Dr. Ivan is married to his career now, and his professional success is taking him places he’s never been before. But even the glow of accomplishment can’t heal his devastated heart. Determined to recover, to move forward at any cost, he now finds moments of respite in distractions that leave him emotionally bankrupt. He’s empty, a shadow of his former vibrant, life-loving self. On the outside, he may seem to be the man he always was. But inside, a terrible desire threatens to rip him apart and ruin him forever.

Meanwhile Jaden is haunted by the memory of the moment she saw the light wither and die in Ivan’s eyes. She knows it died at her hand. After months of trying to explain herself, of begging for mercy, she takes herself back to Miami, back into Ivan’s path, for one last chance at redemption. Can she entice him back into her arms? Convince him to give her a second chance? She’s determined to do whatever it takes to find forgiveness—even if all that’s left is forgiving herself.

In this final book of The Winemaker’s Feast Trilogy, The Winemaker’s Dinner: Dessert, author Dr. Ivan Rusilko is writing solo, drawing freely on his own life and love experiences to craft a heartbreaking and wildly erotic tale about lost hope, desperation, contrition, and—if it’s possible—the quest for a perfect ending to a real-life love story. True to its title, Dessert serves readers an indulgent, decadent last course, rich with twists, turns, and tantalizing truths.

Love is beautiful, guys like this really do exist, and the power of real romance is something we can all believe in.

5 star review by Janeah Rosecrans

Five star review – So worth the wait!!!
I’m still trying to catch my breath and unclench my heart after reading the highly anticipated final installment of The Winemakers’ Dinner trilogy. Again, Dr. Ivan Rusilko does not disappoint!!!! From the first chapter I was hooked and couldn’t stop reading until it was over. And yet again, just like the first two books, I went through every emotion from anger, sadness, to utter happiness. Bravo Dr. Ivan, bravo!!!
The Winemaker’s Dinner: Dessert now takes place 6 months after the ill-fated proposal night. Ivan is now devastated and trying to feed his loss with a new “freak” addiction. He has also opened his new practice Club Essentia, and is trying to stay busy and focused with his new venture. At the same time Jaden’s show is on hiatus and she has returned back to Miami for some much needed time off.
I’m not going to give anything away in my review, because I want you all to read it. But from chapter one, Ivan takes you on his dark journey trying to get through the pain of his loss. Ivan has such a way of bringing the reader in and captivating them. I could feel the pain and torment he was going through. I felt every emotion he went through, as if I was going through it with him.
To be honest, before I read Dessert, I was not huge fan of Jaden. But while reading this final installment, I really grew to like her. I felt she had grown up a lot in the 6 months that had passed. She really had a better understanding of who she was and what was important in life, and her willingness to fight for it was astounding.
I want to thank you Dr. Ivan for writing such brilliant trilogy. You’ve captivated many hearts out there. I can only hope this is the beginning of a wonderfully long writing career for you, because I know there are many of us who would love to read more from you. Perhaps a “Nightcap” now would be a great idea for an epilogue??? Hint hint.  
P.S. ~ I also would like to thank you for all the wonderful people I have met because of The Winemaker’s Dinner series. Without them I would have not made some of the life-long friends that I have in the past year. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
