Not the tale you've been told
In this modern-day retelling of Salome, Herod is a drug lord. Herod’s life is mostly the same until he marries his business partner’s wife and her daughter comes to live with him. If his wife is not trying to destroy him, his new stepdaughter is disobeying at every turn.
Everything changes when Salome comes home from college and he has to use her help to clean up her mother’s mess with a snitch. Things change even more when he asks her to dance for his birthday. Things go totally to hell for Herod when he promises Salome anything she wants if she spends an entire week with him dancing. Herod has avoided heartbreak for so long and is used to having power over everyone. Salome has all the power now, and what she asks for could ruin his entire cocaine empire and have the cops at his door.
This is a tale of debauchery, sex, drugs, and romance.

Herod was a royal pain in the @ss to Salome when she was growing up. She could not get away from him. The beginning of the book is really funny when she kept trying to keep Herod out of her phone and he kept figuring out how to get back in. When she is in college and did not want to go home, her security person drugged her, dyed her hair from red back to blond. When she wakes, she realizes she is on a plane on her way back home. Herod has big plans for her with his drug business. This was a really good book. Taylor Nornung did a good job with the narration. I received this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
