Aleatha Romig is truly versatile when it comes to her writing and stories, but she never fails to give great book. Just check out the excerpt and my bumbling attempt to tell you how amazing this book is. You really need to find out for yourself!
BETRAYAL – RELEASE DATE OCTOBER 13
One week. No future. No past. No more.
Alexandria Collins has one week to live carefree—no ghosts of her past or pressures of her future haunting her. Reinventing herself as "Charli," she is knocked off her feet by a sexy, mysterious man who brings her pleasure like she never imagined. With her heart at stake, she forgets that decisions made in the dark of night reappear in the bright light of day.
"Some of my tastes are unique. They aren’t for everyone. I understand that.”
Lennox "Nox" Demetri is wealthy, confident, and decisive—he knows what he wants. From the first time he sees Charli at an exclusive resort, he knows he wants her. Although he is usually the one to make the rules, together they agree on one:
One week. No more.
When betrayal comes from those closest to Alexandria, she must decide how far she is willing to go to survive. Choices are not always easy, especially when they involve the heart, body, and soul. After all, Infidelity is a business, and some rules are meant to be broken.
"Is it really cheating if you're doing it to yourself?"
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, turns, deceptions, and devotions, this new epic dark romance will have readers swooning one minute and screaming the next. Have you been Aleatha'd?
BETRAYAL is a full-length novel and the first of five in the INFIDELITY series.
"Because, since the first moment I saw you I've made exceptions. I've done and said things that I do not do. You do that to me. You make me a rebel even against myself."
I nodded, understanding exactly what he was saying. Nox had done the same thing to me. He'd made Charli into someone Alex or Alexandria would never be. Because of him I'd cheated on myself. And I loved him for it.
I didn't think I could love Aleatha Romig's stories more than I already do, but I guess I was wrong. This book so different from the others she's written but still has all the hallmarks of her stories. A sin this book literally took away my breath and my heart is still pounding. Please be still my beating heart. I'm still riding on the emotional high I got from this book. Can we please fast forward to January so I can read the next part?
I'm not even sure where to start. I didn't read the blurb going into the book, which was a great idea. I had no idea what to expect and it allowed the story to take control. I really liked Alexandria in all her forms, whether she called herself by her given name, Alex or Charli. I hated how confined and repressed she felt in the place where she should've been the safest. I watched as she yearned to be free of the bonds that held her back and I cheered as she found the strength to buck them. I loved her adventurous side and her determination to achieve her dreams. She's strong and I have a feeling she'll be successful at the challenges coming her way, and she's going to have plenty.
I was as smitten with Nox as Charli was. The spark between them was white hot. I loved how they took it slow even though they didn't have lots of time and the chemistry between them was off the charts. I found myself hoping they'd be able to find something lasting beyond their one week together, but to find out if that happens, you're going to have to read the book to find out. I won't be spoiling anyone's reading experience. Nox was really a mystery in this book I look forward to finding out more about him in the upcoming books.
This story is much more than Charli and Nox. There's this mystery about what's going on in Savannah and the reason behind the betrayal in Charli/Alex's life. I was just as devastated as Alex when she found out what had happened. I can't wait to find out they why. There's got to be something there with why her mother keeps stressing her heritage. I can't wait to find out what it is. I really enjoyed how the story went from the past and the present. I know a lot of readers don't like it, but it really helped me understand the multiple story arcs that were going on and how they all tied together. And for everyone who is worried about this book being about cheating, it's not. That's about as spoilery as I'll get.
Aleatha Romig has written an amazing book. She's proven before how versatile her writing style is, but this is her hottest book yet, and my favorite. She's set the bar for this series quite high, and I'm so eager to see how she outdoes herself, again and again. Pick up this book and find out why everyone is raving about it!
