Dark desires…Deadly secrets…Devious deceptions…Nothing is exactly as it seems in INSIDIOUS, the new erotic thriller from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author ALEATHA ROMIG!

When a powerful man is willing to risk everything for his own satisfaction, only one woman can beat him at his own game: his wife. Or so she thinks…

“Let’s start with you calling me Stewart. Formalities seem unnecessary.”

Stewart Harrington is rich, gorgeous, and one of the most powerful men in Miami. He always gets what he wants. Anything is available to him for the right price.

Even me.

Being the wife of a mogul comes with all the perks, but being Mrs. Stewart Harrington comes with a few special requirements. I’ve learned to keep a part of myself locked away as my husband watches me submit to his needs. But the more he demands of me, the more beguiled he becomes and that’s to my advantage. So I keep fulfilling his fantasies and following his rules because he doesn’t know that what he’s playing is really my game. And winning is everything, right?

INSIDIOUS is a stand-alone novel and the first Tales from the Dark Side title by ALEATHA ROMIG.

Divas’ Review

Ever since we were destroyed by the worst book hang-overs EVER with Aleatha’s Consequences series, we have been waiting (very impatiently) for her next work of art!  Yes, I say “work of art” because she truly is an artist with how she puts her words together to create such intriguing and unique stories and Insidious definitely falls into that same category.  Aleatha has delivered, yet again, a fascinating, sexually explosive story that definitely takes a dive into the “Dark Side”  which kept me guessing and needing to read more. Of course, just like the other ones, I can’t say too much without giving something away so I will just have to say, “Get this book!!!” Okay, well I may have to say a little more than that but I promise no spoilers. 🙂  Seriously though, I don’t know how she does it but Aleatha has an amazing ability to create characters that you don’t know if you’re going to love or hate throughout the book and Insidious was no different in that aspect.  The only problem I have is that it is over…no second, third, fourth, fifth…to look forward to because I certainly have a love/hate relationship with series’ with heart-stopping cliffhangers but I’ll tell you this much, the end threw me off enough to where I needed to re-read it a few times and I suppose that will have to do and I’ll just have to wait for her next one to get more Aleatha!

The Divas definitely give Insidious four out of five champagne glasses!  Links are below so go on over and get it!

Behind His Eyes: Truth Review and other goodies:)

bhe truthBlurb

BEHIND HIS EYES TRUTH is the second of CONSEQUENCES SERIES three reading companions, by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig. It is recommended to be read after completing all of the CONSEQUENCES SERIES: Consequences, Truth, and Convicted. It is not a standalone book and should not be read as such.

This reading companion explores the thoughts and motivations of Anthony Rawlings and his struggle to accept the truth behind the consequences. It is not intended as a total rewrite of TRUTH, but meant to enhance the reader’s understanding. BEHIND HIS EYES TRUTH contains significant scenes from the novel TRUTH, as experienced from Anthony’s point of view. It also contains never before read, behind the scenes information, a glossary of the characters, and a timeline which grows from Consequences to include the array of new characters and revelations found in the pages of Truth. 

BEHIND HIS EYES TRUTH is the continued journey inside the mind of the man who supplied and survived the consequences. This companion allows readers the opportunity to witness first hand as Anthony’s world changes forever. His rules and control begin to slip away, threatened by the most unlikely foes—something completely unfamiliar. 

Can something as pure as love and forgiveness wreak havoc on his well-planned existence?helpless

BEHIND HIS EYES TRUTH, because there is more to learn about a man who: 

Once upon a time, signed a napkin that he knew was a contract. As an esteemed businessman, he forgot one very important rule—he forgot to read the fine print. It wasn’t an acquisition to own another person as he’d previously assumed. It was an agreement to acquire a soul.

—Aleatha Romig, CONVICTED

 Continue the long and painful acquisition, as the TRUTH becomes evident, from Behind His Eyes!  

 

Behind His Eyes Truth Excerpt

It isn't real

Glancing at the numerous pictures from his years of surveillance, Tony wondered if he and Claire had come full circle. Would it be like this again? Would his only connection to her be through this new investigator? Would he only see Claire in two dimensions? Tony searched for their contract, the beginning of their personal journey together. He knew it wouldn’t b


Then he shook his head. He didn’t want her back, did he? Hell, the lack of sleep was making him sentimental. He stopped his search. The damn contract was no longer valid; it never had been—legally. Pushing the box back into its hideaway, he contemplated throwing it all away. Having her back wasn’t his goal; learning her location was. She had no right to disappear.
e that easy again. If he were to get her back to Iowa and into his life, it wouldn’t be because of a signature on a napkin.

With the necklace in his hand, Tony settled upon the soft leather sofa in front of his fireplace. If Phillip Roach were correct, in a few moments he’d hear the voice that used to fill his suite and his house. When her voice came through his phone, Tony wanted to feel her presence. He imagined the sound as he looked up at her wedding portrait and saw the emerald green that haunted his dreams. What did he want to hear? He wanted to know she was safe and unharmed. He wanted to know where she was, and he also wanted to bring her back to Iowa—because that was where she belonged. 

It didn’t make sense. To the world she was the woman who tried to kill him. To Tony she was more than that. The past twenty hours had proven it. She was his drug. Claire Nichols ran through his system like ecstasy, sending him on otherwise unobtainable highs. He reasoned that lows followed highs, and she’d given him those, too; they’d given them to each other. Nevertheless, without the right stimulant, the euphoria could never again be achieved. Whether it was elation or misery, neither would be obtainable without the exhilarating potency of Claire. He didn’t want an empty envelope. He wanted her. Nathaniel was wrong: Claire wasn’t gone; she was just misplaced. 

For the last twenty-four hours, his entire being had surged with anticipation. Claire may not understand it—hell, Tony didn’t understand it, but he couldn’t deny it. Now that she was gone, he needed her back in his life, and he would have her.

Review 

We can’t get enough of this series!!! The companion books to Aleatha Romig’s Consequence series are by far the best “extras” we’ve ever had the pleasure of reading and Behind His Eyes Truth might be our favorite so far!  Okay, okay…we say that with every one of her books but this one, we think, might take the cake!  

We all know Tony is a complex man with many sides to him but BHE Truth perfectly highlights the side we all hoped he had and would sporadically show eventually as we were continuously tortured by Tony’s erratic and ruthless behavior and actions throughout  each and every one of the books.  Oh, don’t get us wrong…he is still and will always be deliciously sick and twisted but Aleatha did a phenomenal  job at bringing out his sensitive, protective, and loving side in BHE Truth.  

As always, Aleatha Romig’s writing is smooth and as close to perfection as we could ever ask.  The pages flow beautifully together, creating a story you will not want to put down until you’ve finished.  We must admit, even after we were done, we still had a hard time putting it down…

Just like every other book in this series, Behind His Eyes Truth receives an overwhelming 5 out of 5 champagne glasses from the Divas!  We are a little destroyed at the idea that there is only one more book to come before there will be no more written on one of our most favorite book boyfriends, Anthony Rawlings but we are sure that an author of Aleatha Romig’s caliber will have something else for us to sink our teeth and hearts into soon (or at least we hope!)

Review

To put it simply, I really enjoyed Consequences of Deception by Ella Fox!  The story begins with a sexy interaction between two sexy characters, Sloane and Killian.  Due to Sloane’s young age, nothing can happen between them and as fate decides, nothing will ever happen when tragedy strikes and both are unknowingly thrown into a web of deceit that turns the both of them against each other.  Years later he buys her…yes I said that, Killian buys Sloane but the reasons are far from surfacing and if others had it their way, the truth would never come out.

 This book is full of sexy, hot scenes and delicious twists.  I thoroughly enjoyed how the story unraveled as I continued to fall in love with these two characters.  Mechanically, it was written well and flowed nicely through out the entire story.  You will definitely want to buy this book to add to your collection!  We give it 4 out of 5 champagne glasses! Cheers!

Consequences Series by Aleatha Romig Review

Consequences-Series

Okay, Deep Breath!!!  Now, where to start?!  I’m not sure how I stumbled upon this book.  I remember seeing the name on Facebook here and there but with all the books I have on my TBR list, it didn’t catch my immediate attention.  Not sure why I ended up buying it and reading it but I AM SO GLAD I DID!!!!!  I don’t say this lightly but this is the BEST series I have read in a long time!  Easily, in my “All Time Favorites” category!  I’ve had to take a few days to digest the story and I’m still reeling from it!  Since I couldn’t put the series down long enough to write reviews in-between, I’ve decided to write a review on the entire series instead.

As I began reading the first book, Consequences, I figured it would be a typical “millionaire bachelor with a f**ked up view of the world who falls in love with an unsuspecting submissive woman” type of book.  I read the synopsis so I figured there would be a little CJ Roberts-esque darkness in it as well.  Oh, how I was wrong!  I was floored at all the twists and turns this story took!  It was literally like a train wreck I couldn’t look away from.  The further I got into the story, the more it unfolded and the further from a romance it got.  My hatred for the main male character, Anthony Rawlings grew and grew.  Yet, I was still rooting for him… Not sure how that happened so kudos, Aleatha for being able to write a character so well that you have to hate him but want to love him at the same time.  Seriously, there was not one redeeming quality about this man and when it looked like there was a chance for him being somewhat of a decent guy, he did something to bring me right back to disliking him.  The main female character, Claire, was also so complex.  I wanted to see her as weak (which many may see her as) but instead I saw her unyielding strength and ability to survive that far surpassed any weakness she may have had.

I was maybe a third of the way into the book when I decided this was not a romance at all and would classify it as a suspense/thriller/mystery but as a hopeless romantic, I was secretly hoping for it to turn directions so I kept on reading.  What I got was an intricately webbed story full of deception, revenge, excitement, endurance, and… love?  Still wasn’t too sure about that one.  The story was beautifully written and was so unpredictable I couldn’t put it down!  I have never had as many “what the f**k” moments as I had in this series!  As soon as I thought I had figured something out, I was thrown off guard again and headed in a different direction.  This continued throughout all three books!  I do need to say that the romance I was looking for did come and continued through all three books but it wasn’t quite what I expected either.  I realized the only thing better than one book boyfriend is multiple book boyfriends!  I had my favorite but I can honestly say I was torn for awhile.  Even toward the very end when I thought everything was getting wrapped up, Aleatha threw another twist into the story making my head swim and my heart hurt!  I absolutely love a book that makes you question what is right or wrong, pushes boundaries, and makes you ask yourself, what would you do if you were in that situation?  This entire series did that for me!  I highly recommend putting this series at the top of your TBR list now!  In fact, just go buy them and begin immediately!  (Links are below)  If you like books that keep you on your toes and tells a great story, I can’t imagine how you won’t LOVE the Consequences Series by Aleatha Romig!  It is by far a 5 out of 5 champagne glass series!   Well done, Aleatha!

consequencesConsequences Synopsis

Book #1 of the Bestselling Consequences Series: 

Anthony Rawlings had a plan—to teach Claire Nichols to behave. 
Claire Nichols had a plan—to survive! 

In an unfamiliar bedroom within a luxurious mansion, Claire Nichols wakes to memories of a brutal abduction. All of her recollections have one common denominator, the man she just met—Anthony Rawlings. Unbeknownst to Claire, Anthony has had her in his sights for a long time. Every action has consequences—and his actions resulted in their chance meeting. 
Facing incomprehensible circumstances, Claire must learn to survive as she comes to terms with her new reality—every aspect of her livelihood is now dependent upon the tall, dark-haired, dark-eyed tycoon. Anthony may appear to the world as a prosperous, benevolent, kind businessman, but in reality Claire learns he is also a menacing, controlling captor with very strict rules: do as your told, public failure is not an option, and don’t divulge private information. Failure to follow these rules and more, are met with serious consequences.

In an effort to earn her freedom, Claire learns her lessons well and before long, she unknowingly captivates her captor. Anthony/ Tony reluctantly becomes enthralled with Claire’s beauty, resilience and determination. Their interaction instigates strong emotions, including—fear, anger, love, and lust—as their journey flows into uncharted waters of intrigue and passion. 
From the opening criminal abduction, through the twists and turns, to the unlikely romantic thrills, the suspense climaxes as Aleatha Romig utilizes vivid detail, allowing this novel to unfold like a movie. 

Can you put the pieces of the puzzle together? Claire Nichols abduction wasn’t a random act—did she learn her lessons well enough? Will these unlikely lovers remain true—or will she learn the truth before it’s too late?

Truth Synopsis

Book #2 of the Bestselling Consequences Series:

***May contain spoilers if you haven’t read Book 1- Consequences*** 

Claire Nichols endured the CONSEQUENCES of Anthony Rawlings’ vendetta. 
When she first arrived to his home, her goal was survival. Through strength and compartmentalization Claire captivated her captor. Her resilience in the face of his rule threatened Anthony’s well developed plan. He thought he taught her to behave—but domination became desire and Claire taught Tony to love. 

Their passion and adoration in a world of opulence appeared perfect, yet the reality was a roller coaster of emotion. Claire’s world teetered on the edge of sanity as Antony monitored her every move. When given the opportunity to flee, Claire drove away—a fateful decision which began a well laid plan. 
Unbeknownst to either of them, there were others who saw past the perfect facade of Anthony Rawlings. There were others who saw the TRUTH. Conspiracy and unfulfilled promises result in an early prison release for Claire. Not just a release—a pardon. According to the law, her crime never happened! 

Will it be that easy? Faced with freedom from her past—can Claire seize it? Can she build a new life, mend her broken spirit, become the woman she once was, and seek her own revenge? Or is it all a game? And does the game master have different plans? 

How does Sophia Burke fit into the puzzle that is Tony and Claire? Will her presence affect the future of this well esteemed man? Can he dominate twice? Is that his goal? 

TRUTH continues the tumultuous saga of CONSEQUENCES, introduces new players, and uncovers more intrigue. Aleatha Romig skillfully weaves past transgressions through current deception to create a fervent world of obsessed desire. In this reality can an all-consuming relationship survive? 
When buried sins are discovered they threaten not only Tony and Claire’s future—but their very lives! Will the TRUTH be revealed in time?

Convicted Synopsis

Book #3 of the Consequences Series— 

***May contain spoilers if you haven’t read Book 1 – Consequences and Book 2 – Truth ***

There were still lessons to learn and consequences for the truth! 

When Claire Nichols met Anthony Rawlings, she didn’t know they had a past, or that he had plans for her future. Over time, the role of teacher changed—games became reality—and domination turned to desire. Despite an insurmountable history, Claire and Tony found their way back to one another. 
Just when they seemed to have it all—love, respect, and the promise of a family—the game master exposed the truth. Claire’s world once again spun out of control. Unwilling to allow her child to suffer the consequences of an old vendetta, Claire fled… 

At one time, Claire was held captive in an opulent mansion—then her incarceration was a cell inside a state penitentiary. Was her new prison—a tropical island—truly less lonely? Perhaps that was the game master’s plan, all along? 

Who will save Claire from her oldest nightmare and her newest reality? Will it be Tony? Can he forgive her for leaving him—again? Harry? Will he utilize previously unknown connections to save the woman who infiltrates his thoughts? Maybe Phil? Will his devotion in keeping Claire and her child safe be rewarded? 

As the cards are played—sins of the past, innocent victims, and truths are revealed. With compartmentalization no longer an option, is the reality too much? Could there be an even worse isolation? 

With the game master dealing from a stacked deck, can this new high-stakes game possibly be won? 

When it’s all over and their cards are on the table—SOME will discover their bets were too high—they have nothing left to lose—ALL will learn the crucial lesson—the most important rule—with the TRUTH comes CONSEQUENCES!
