DECEPTION, book THREE of FIVE in Aleatha Romig's INFIDELITY series.
"Infidelity - it isn't what you think"
It all began in Del Mar, a chance meeting with a single rule--one week only.
Or did it?
Lennox ‘Nox’ Demetri and Alexandria ‘Charli’ Collins had every intention of following their agreement but rules are made to be broken. In CUNNING they are reunited with Nox setting down new rules for the game and Charli having no choice but to follow them.
Now, once again, the game has changed. Nox and Charli’s hot sensual encounter has grown into something more but it is threatened with secrets and regrets. Is it their love and intense sexual chemistry that’s pushing them together or something darker, a puppetmaster behind the scenes pulling the strings on their love affair?
Shadowy villains lurk around each corner and everyone is suspect as Nox’s and Charli's pasts collide with the present and threaten to compel them back to their predestined fates.
Can deals brokered in the past be negated by something as pure as love and as steamy as the attraction shared by Nox and Charli? Or was it all a deception—starting with that very first meeting?
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a sexy, new dominant hero who knows what he wants and a strong-willed heroine who has plans of her own. With classic Aleatha Romig twists and turns, the depth of this epic romantic suspense continues to reach new levels as past and present intertwine. The Infidelity series will have readers swooning one minute and screaming the next.
Have you been Aleatha'd?
DECEPTION is a full-length novel, over 300 pages, and the third of five books in the INFIDELITY series - It isn't what you think!
(This series is not about nor does it advocate or condone cheating)
Holy cliffhanger! I can’t praise this series enough. Deception picks up right where Cunning left off. Aleatha has a masterful way of revealing more information and presenting more questions at exactly the same time. It will drive you crazy in the best way.
The secrets get deeper and the reveals more twisted than you could have possibly thought. I can’t go into too much plot detail as it would spoil things. Every chapter had me reading at a more furious pace, dying to know what was going to happen, what had really happened in the past.
The story is the perfect weaving of past and present, from different characters POV. Nox and Charli’s relationship also grows deeper and more intense. They balance each other perfectly. He is overprotective (with good cause) and she is stubborn and determined to become more independent. A weaker woman would allow herself to be bulldozed by him, but not Charli. She is not afraid stand up for herself, and Nox is drawn to her more because of it. Their bond grows deeper as others threaten to tear them apart and their pasts come back to haunt them.
This book made me want to know all the things, made me wish the entire series was available. I feel like my book life is on hold until September. And that ending!!! I was half tempted to throw my kindle across the room, but then I wouldn’t be able to finish the series!
This is the genius that is Aleatha Romig. 5 Stars and a nice bottle of Montague private stock red wine! Enjoy!
