Book Reviews


Cunning. How Apropos4 star

This is part 2 of the story of Nox and Alex. The labyrinth just keeps growing, tunneling, darkening and enticing. I can’t wait to read the 3rd part to see how Aleatha Romig pulls us further into the surprising “it’s a small world” twist to their story. Enjoy.45

Loving this series!!!45


Love the series4 star

This series sucked me in. I love the characters and the twists and turns.45


Was still an exciting book to read EXCEPT.....4 star

I couldn’t help thinking Nox was a replica of Alton. Each scene painted them so similar. I had to try hard not to keep my thoughts warped. However, the storyline made it difficult to see him otherwise until the end, which made no sense. Anyway all the chapters with Adelaide was unnecessary. If we were to know some things from the past then it could have been summed up in one. The details of the abuse was already said in the first book without being said. I got the gist. It was when the book was uninteresting. Anyway outside of that the book is still has my attention and I’m hoping the third one will be as good as the very first.45

Borderline2 star

I like the book for its twist and turns. But I don’t like the parts when the guy gets borderline abusive when he is upset. Squeezing and pushing his woman around. I have issue with that. I especially don’t like it that she accepts it from him, but not from anyone else. She seems to have a lot of her mother in her when it comes to that area. Over all a good read tho.25


This book disgusted me, I couldn’t even finish.1 star

As someone who has dealt with domestic violence I truly couldn’t believe what I was reading, or that a woman wrote this. Nox is physically abusive and the author thinks giving an insight into what he is thinking (“punishing” Alex for signing with Infidelity) makes it okay because he does care for her but needs to teach her a lesson. Then from Alex’s point of view is being hurt physically and emotionally from what he’s doing and while she’s disgusted/hurt/physically in pain let’s just make her turned on and wanting sex. There are real women in situations where a man is abusive and uses excuses of loving her so much that he NEEDS to show her a lesson so she can learn and be better for herself. The author should be ashamed for glorifying abuse this way. I couldn’t finish the book. I fear for young girls who reads this and thinks this type of toxic relationship is sexy or loving when in reality could get them killed for involving themselves with a man like Nox.15


Addicted to the books5 star

I'm so addicted to the book. I found myself reading it at red lights and at work. I can't wait to start book 3, but at this rate I'll be finished with series by Saturday. What will I do without Nox and Alex. The thought saddens me....great book55


Well if you're into soap operas...2 star

I always start reading a book with the full intention to love it....I didn't with this one. I felt as if there were so many things happening, so many things coming out of left field that it started to get too crazy for my taste. If you're into exaggerated drama, you're going to love this! Honestly maybe I could've moved past it all if I loved the guy, but I didn't. I tried to, really I did. But there's only so much possessiveness and domineering one can take before it crosses the line of abuse. It didn't! But man was it close. I really felt uncomfortable with how Nox treated Alex once their "agreement" began. It wasn't cute or lovable. It didn't help either that Alex was always so eager to please Nox even after any decent person would've stopped for a minute and evaluated the situation. The writing was fine for an easy read book like this. However I could've done without the excessive changes in points of view. From Charli/Alex to Nox tô even Adelaide. It created a rocky flow to the story. Again, only my opinion but I could've gone without this book.25
