Aleatha, Aleatha, ALEATHA!!!! The end of Betrayal had my heart pounding, my mind spinning and me re-reading the last few chapters. The whole book was amazing but when I knew it was almost over… I didn’t want it to be so I kept going backwards because it was just THAT GOOD.
You left a carrot dangling in front of my face and I couldn’t catch it. Leaving me like that was such a “Cunning” thing to do. Thank god the “Betrayal” didn’t last too long because before I knew it I had my grabby hands back on Nox. Which is a good thing because I was having serious withdraws from all things Nox and Alex.
I won’t go into any details about what you get in this book. Just know this. This is one of those series where you don’t mind cliffhangers. It is one you don’t want to end, so you will keep chasing that damn carrot till your little feet fall off. You don’t mind being kept on the end of your seat, because while you get answers, you find yourself with another question. You get mind blowing steamy sexy, but you lust for more. You swoon, you fall and then your mouth falls open with the big “O” because you have another piece to the master puzzle and well maybe another reason *wink*.
Aleatha continues to knock homeruns over the wall like it’s nobody’s business. This woman can write. I mean she CAN WRITE! I loved Betrayal but I loved Cunning even more. I am pretty sure I want my own Nox. Not the furry one she has always by her side, he is cute and all but I want Lennox Demetri. Gahhhhh!
This series is utterly addictive. The suspense, mystery, what if’s and the ultimate betrayal are all things you will find in this book. It’s seriously sexy, swoony and enough twisted mind games to keep you on your toes the entire time. I am one of those readers that absolutely LOVES to be left on the edge of her seat. Leave my mind whirling, I don’t mind one single iota. To say I loved this book is an understatement. I breathed this book and you will too, once you get your little finger clicking to buy it! Trust me. Don’t procrastinate…Nox wouldn’t like that because that would be pure “Deception” which is coming your way in May!

I couldn’t concentrate. Shit, I could barely function. Thoughts of Charli consumed my mind—her gorgeous eyes, the way she looked at me when I came out of that room and our gaze met. I hadn’t planned on going to the Mandarin yet or being there when she arrived. I had things to do, but I couldn’t stay away. I couldn’t not see her. The attraction was too strong.
That was what she did to me. She made me lose focus on the world and see only her.
In only the short time we’d been together, she’d gotten under my skin like no one else, even Jo. I’d never fallen so fast or so hard. I didn’t do drugs, never had. Nevertheless, I imagined that Charli was like cocaine. One casual hit at a party—that was all I was after in Del Mar. One hit, one week. Since returning to New York, I’d tried to deny my addiction. Each day we were apart was another day clean, another day sober. I was able to detox because she was out of my life.
That was then.
This is now, and now she’s mine.
Deloris said her name was Alexandria, or Alex, but that didn’t change anything. We’d confessed that our names were nicknames, and to me she’d always be my Charli.
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.
