Not everything dangerous is bad.
From the moment Angelina laid eyes on him, she fell into a fantasy. Mysterious, foreign, gorgeous, Haithem offered her what she needed most—a chance to feel again.
But Haithem is much more than he appears to be. He lives in a world of danger where everything comes at a price.
For Angelina, that price is her future.
He's made sure the life she's left behind is in tatters. Made her family believe she's dead. Still, he talks about protecting her, about keeping her safe, but she can't distinguish his truth from his lies. She can't separate her pleasure from his betrayal.
Haithem warned her. He told her he'd make her heart race, her body come alive and her most primal needs rush to the surface. His for the taking.
He didn't say she'd come to love the devil who's destroying her, even as he keeps her prisoner.

“Didn’t I warn you” is the story of Haithem and Angelina. They meet by chance in a café and share an explosive attraction to each other. When Angelina tries to be bold once in her life and seeks Haithem out to suggest him a one-night-stand, fate strikes and makes it a whole lot more complicated than one night of passion.
First off, I want to give my two cents to the blurb. It is good to go into the book with as few information as possible. BUT it had been described as something for fans of Penelope Douglas’ Corrupt, which it was in NO way! Not even remotely. It wasn’t dark, either. Yes, Haithem (the male MC) is very alpha and can be a cold prick at times, but that doesn’t make it a dark romance.
That being said, the writing was great, the characters a bit strange but very likeable, even hot and cold Haithem. The sex-scenes were off the charts hot, even if it took them a while to get to the deed.
The only thing that annoyed me, was the fact that this was another hidden cliffhanger ending. If I would have known this is a duet, I would have hesitated to read it until the sequel is out. But it wasn’t obvious to me, that this would be a cliffy. Oh, plus it got cheesy once the misunderstandings were out of the way. Nothing wrong with declarations of love, but I was a bit overwhelmed by the whole lotta love given from one MC to the other in this book.
All in all, I rate “Didn’t I warn you” with 4 stars and can recommend it to fans of hate-to-love books and am now looking forward to the sequel “Didn’t you promise”, which is ought to be released in June this year.
Lovely review! Thank you for hosting DIDN’T I WARN YOU on your blog today!
