"He owns you. Whatever he tells you to do, you do."
One year. No future. A past that won't go away.
Lennox "Nox" Demetri broke his own rule by making a deal. It may not have been directly with the devil, but that doesn't mean Satan himself isn't watching. Was it fate that brought Charli into his life and his bed? What will happen when rules are broken and secrets are revealed?
"New rules...my rules."
Alex "Charli" Collins found pleasure with Nox like she'd never known. That was before she knew his last name. Now that infidelity is involved and the rules have changed, what will result when real life and fantasy collide? Is it really cheating if you're doing it to yourself?

"TICK TICK BOOM, TICK TICK BOOM WENT THE PLOT"
Charli didn't know what lay ahead for her now that she's the property of Nox for one whole year.... to do with her whatever he likes - but nothing could have prepared her for this very different version of Nox. Gone is the thoughtful kind lover from their time in Del Mar and in his place is a cold, ruthless and controlling version with many secrets and an untouchable and unspoken past. But just when Charli loses all hope of ever seeing the nice side of Nox again he surprises her yet again.... and continues to confuse and shock the ever lovin Hell out of her with his revelations.
There's some things Nox wants Charli to know however there's A LOT that he's keeping back from her..... partly for her own good and partly for his benefit. His ruthless Father comes into the story to further complicate things and throws a spanner in the works when he announces that, not only does he know exactly who Charli really is, but that he's also met her Mother. There's also a sub story told from her Mother's POV giving the backstory to her choices and life - which includes revelations, twists and a wicked plan that's centered around Charli's life and future.... a despicable plan that was brokered when Charli was just a child. The Chess pieces are starting to make their moves, lay their traps and sacrifice their pawns.... but who will be the victor, what will the cost be and when "check mate" is finally called which pieces will still be left on the Board???
I couldn't wait to jump right into this second instalment.... however N O T H I N G could have prepared me for the mind blowing revelations, the devious twists and the emotional roller coaster that this listen took me on. It's so well thought out with its tangled mixed up crazy web of a storyline... and, just when you think you're getting somewhere in the plot, AR throws in another spanner to toss things off course. You can't forecast or predict what'll happen next because this skilful Author has an endless supply of spanners that she randomly tosses into the mix and then you're, again, heading into the unknown.... holding on tight and praying for divine intervention.
Gripping storytelling at its very best, descriptive, addictive, explosive and scorching hot as well as being romantic, tender and touching at times too. There's a full cast of toxic, loveable and mysterious characters whose plans and destinies are yet to be revealed to us.... but whatever they are I know it's going to be a spectacular ride. Ends on another cliffhanger, dual POV's (but mainly Charli's), don't think of starting this book without first listening to book 1 and the narrators were pretty darn perfect.
Worth a credit? This is a 10 star listen that cost only 1 credit so Hell YEAH it was soooo worth using one on this absolutely awesome and addictive book.
This series keeps getting better and better! I love listening to my favorite books after I've read them. Nox, Charli and company do not disappoint in this installment!! I cannot wait for the next one...amazing Aleatha!!
How am I the only one who really did not like this book? Maybe if this was the first book series I had listened to by the author Aleatha Romig I would have been impressed, but I hate when you find an author you think you love and all of her books have relatively the same characters. I fast forwarded through much of this book. And rolled my eyes at the rest.
"Continues to be a really amazing story"
If you know me, you know that I rarely read blurbs for books in a series that I know I want to keep reading. So I was very caught by surprise when I found out that Nox and Alex/Charli were our hero and heroine in this book too. I’m so not sad about that, because I really loved both of them. I was very interested to see where things went, after how things ended in the previous book. Im going to keep things vague, because I don’t want to spill any spoilers.
This story picks up exactly where Betrayal left off. Their dynamics have changed. Nox is a different man with different rules in this new relationship. Alex is trying desperately to find out how she fits into this relationship without giving up her dream.
One thing I really loved about this story is really watching Alex and Nox get to know each other. In the first book, they are on a one week “blind date” with tons of romance and sex. They were both playing at this with no real commitment and didn’t even share personal information. Now things are different and they must learn each other, their actual personalities (and not just the ones they pretended to be during their fantasy week), their families and how their lives will fit together.
Both Alex and Nox come from very rich families that are both overbearing to their children. Both of them want to have their own lives and do what is best for them, not just for a family legacy. Their parents have something completely different in mind. Also, imagine the surprise when both Nox and Alex find out that their families have had dealings in the past.
This book is another great installment in the Infidelity series. I have no idea where the story will go from here. I don’t know if Alex and Nox will continue to be the main two characters for the entire series (I really want to find out as I go, even though the entire series has been released). So far, this series has kept me on my toes and chomping at the bit to get more.
“You have rules to learn and penalties to experience”
“I’m Batman, princess. Next time you want to fly across the country, tell me. I won’t delay two hundred people’s plans, and we can just fly in the bat plane”
In the first book, pretty much the entire story was from Alex’s POV, so Samantha Prescott did almost the entire narration. Brian Pallino didn’t come into it until the very end. In this book, the narration was much more balanced between the two narrators. I really enjoyed both of them. I think they both did all the things you expect from a good narration, pace, tone, voices for both males and females. I really hope that we have them for the entire series.
**I like to thank the publisher for providing me with a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
"Held my attention, but does get repetitive."
I have not read the print version.
I like Nox the best and enjoyed the story most when he narrated. He got to the point, where as the interactions with Charli and Adelaide were getting frustrating. I do like how there is a back story on Adelaide and is told from her point of view.
This was as good as the first book in the series.
No, I couldn't listen to it all at once. This book tends to be repetitive at times and I found myself getting annoyed at the characters and why they don't just communicate. Charli needs to be more firm in what she does and just put an end to contact with Bryce and her family. She doesn't stand up for herself with them all the way, only slightly. That can get annoying and I can only take it in small doses. This book boasts that Charli is a strong-willed heroine, but I have not seen that so far.
I just bought the third installment, but I am afraid that it will be more of the same round and round as book 2. I hope I'm wrong...
This writer can put together words that makes you imagine you are there. The narration is super
This has been a very exciting continuation of Knox and Charli. The book ended as abruptly as a shot. I can't wait for the next book in the series. WOW
"Better and better"
This storty just keeps getting better and better! Her best work yet. On to the next one in the series.
"Queen of twists and turns "
Nothing like steamy and suspenseful. AR has another fabulous series to keep us wanting more.
Loved the narrators...the emotions are off the charts.
"the best book I have heard!!!!!"
brilliant! and very well written..... this amazing book will keep you on the edge, and make you believe in fairy tales!
yes, it is a good read with a good narrator.
the tone and set of their voices bring a real feeling of raw emotions to the listener.
love this, read betrayal first then this. also have read others by Aleatha Romig
