Betrayal by Aleatha Romig - Review

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.

Review by Cindy

I avoid books about infidelity. I’ve tried them. They just are not my thing, so I steer clear. Give me a good HEA any day. When one of my favorite authors decides to create an entire series on the subject, it creates a bit of a conundrum. But the author is Aleatha Romig, so I was pretty confident that this was not going to just be a series about cheating. 

Nox was supposed to be just a little a diversion. One week. Then it was back to business. Fun and attentive, not to mention, wealthy and beautiful. He definitely knows how to show a girl a good time, (in and out of the bedroom). I was pretty sure that there was no way Charlie would be able walk away from him at the end of their week together. In fact, I already had the whole plot worked out in my head. I just wasn’t sure how the “betrayal” part would factor in. I was wrong, of course. Charlie not only walked away from a dream week with Nox, she walked straight into the most unfathomable hell she could have imagined.

From the first words of the Prologue, I connected with Charlie. She’s a smart and driven woman who knows what she wants, and she’s willing (and able) to do the hard work it will take to achieve it. But when pressures from her high-profile family threaten to keep Charlie from realizing those dreams, Nox – her one-week, no-questions-asked fling – may be only one who can save her. But his help comes at a very steep price. Charlie is left to consider what she values more, her dreams, or her body? 


No, not the story. The fact that Aleatha Romig can spin a tale, and just when I find myself settling into it, she pulls the proverbial rug out from under me.

It's October. My heart is pounding. And now I’ll be waiting until January for answers. 

I love it!!

Five I’m-holding-my-breath stars!
