REVIEW by Monique
When Aleatha Romig
‘popped my cherry’ with BETRAYAL, I was STUNNED with the WHIRLWIND of EMOTIONS
I was feeling and then she throws me off the DAMN CLIFF!!!
Well DAMN IT, she did
it AGAIN! I OFFICIALLY have been ALEATHA’D – looking for her novel, writing her
release dates on my calendar, searching for others readers to talk about WTF
she just did to me while reading her novels, and hope I do not break my Kindle
when I come to the conclusion!
“The last thing I wanted was for her to know the power
she had…”
CUNNING is the second
novel of the five part Infidelity series, so if you have not read BETRAYAL
please read it now before CUNNING.
“Infidelity – it isn’t what you think.”
The first novel is
critical in understanding the development of the characters and CUNNING begins immediately
where BETRAYAL ends – these are not standalones.
“New rules…my rules.”
Alexa “Charli” Collins
has made a decision about her future without anyone telling her what she is
going to do with her life, until she receives a phone call.
“I may have thought it before, but now it was
official: Nox owned me. I’d sold my soul, but by the way my insides clenched, I
knew that my companionship wasn’t the only commodity Nox purchased. ”
Lennox “Nox”
Demetri is trying to protect Charli from his past, but together they were
fighting barriers. Although some of the barriers were not all from Nox’s past, Charli
also has secrets and they both needed to share them with each other.
“It was wrong. He was wrong. I was wrong.”
Even though Nox is an
alpha dominating male, Charli is also uncovering his softer side she saw in Del
Mar.
“She knows because she sat there and watched as Satan himself
took it from me. “
“You don’t need it, princess.”
“I’ve never felt like one, not until I met you.”
Charli is left with
many mix emotion, because of the actions of others working against her. Does
she trust her heart or does she trust mind with the facts or is it family?
“Thanks to my Montague upbringing, when it came to
illusion, I was a master.”
Aleatha Romig’s novel, CUNNING,
is AMAZINGLY!!! Of course, Aleatha’s DARK and TWISTED ROMANCE AUTHOR MIND threw
me over the DAMN CLIFF AGAIN while SCREAMING…”WTF”, a TISSUE in my HAND, and SINGE
PANTIES!!! Aleatha you are WICKED!!! I can only CONFESS I HAVE BEEN ALEATHA’D thus,
I will be anticipating the third novel, DECEPTION, in the Infidelity series due
to be release – May 2016. ‘One-Click’ CUNNING today and you too will also find
yourself ALEATHA’D!
“He
was right. I hated how well Nox knew me without my telling him.
I’d
never considered myself transparent. Nevertheless, Nox saw inside of me, into
my soul.”

Aleatha Romig’s novel, CUNNING, receives – 5 AMAZING STARS!



EXCERPT 1:
Nox



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.











EXCERPT 2:
Charli
The storm of raging tension that had surrounded us since our eyes met in the bar changed. The intensity was still off the charts, but this was something different. Whatever it was affected us both. Our breathing suddenly took effort as both of our chests rose and fell.
“Take off that dress.”
Nox’s command echoed throughout the glass stall. I considered arguing, but common sense stopped my rebuttal. I’d already pushed him far enough. Starting at the neckline, I slowly exposed myself, inch by inch. His gaze followed the soaked material. As I revealed my breasts, my nipples hardened, and he let out a low growl. Down the dress went, exposing my tummy and red lace panties.
Shaking his head, Nox ran his finger along the edge of my panties. With his large hands now at my hips, he asked, “Did you do anything I told you to do in my note?”
“No.” My honesty left a trail of vulnerability and shame.
In one quick motion, Nox ripped the lace, and the shredded panties joined my dress on the shower floor. I blinked away the water as he tipped my face upward.
“No more disobeying. Do you understand?”
I nodded—not in acknowledgment of his words, but in response to the rush from once again being in his presence. Nox electrified me in a way I’d never known, and even in the absurdity of our current situation, he was doing it again. The way he scanned my nakedness as his Adam’s apple bobbed tingled my skin.
He hadn’t released my chin. “Say ‘Yes, Mr. Demetri.'”
My chest hurt. “N-Nox.”
His grip tightened.
“Yes, Mr. Demetri.”
















BETRAYAL – AVAILABLE NOW
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.
