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.
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. Due to the dark and explicit nature of this book, it is recommended for mature audiences only.
Book & Audiobook Review: 10 stars
Frustrating, suspenseful, hopeful!
One of the greatest books I have read!
Victoria is a beautiful young woman with a rich husband which sounds like she has it all right?
But we have all learned by now all that glitters is not gold and hidden secret are under the picture perfect facade. She married Stewart out of the sudden at a very young age with hope of love and it was all like a fairytale until one day that fairytale turned into a dark and insidious nightmare trapping her in a life she despised as much as she did her husband.
But payback’s are a bitch and now the tables are turned and Victoria is finally seeing the light at the end of a long dark tunnel and she is celebrating her victory already. What seems to be too good to be true usually is and Victoria has been hit with another unexpected turn and all hope of her freedom is out of her reach….Once again.
I have been wanting to read Aleatha’s books for a long time and I figured to start with the standalone and see where it leads me. There is no doubt in my mind whatsoever that this woman was born to write and she is doing it so well that you are losing your mind over each and single page you turn. The writing in this book is so brilliant, spectacular and unique. If she translated the phone book in this stile I would devour it with every cell in my body! All stars in heaven for this masterful way to fuck with readers heads and their wellbeing.
So the story in this book…
Wow I mean just WOW FUCKING WOW!!!
It has been over a week now since I finished the book and I still think about it every day and it haunts my mind like an incurable decease. I can feel all the emotions coming back and I just feel the strongest of needs to listen to this book right now all over again! This one had my heart tied up from the first sentence to the very last one. I can’t even explain how intense and captivating this story was. The only way to understand this is to read/listen for yourselves and see what I am trying to out on paper here.
There is intrigue, there is mystery, there are secrets, there are lies, there are enemies and you can rely on absolutely NOBODY!
I was feeling so many things while on this crazy ride but most memorable ones are FURY, DISGUST and HOPE! I was so disgusted at times from the situations that Victoria found herself in that I wanted to throw my phone on the concrete and stamp on it beyond all repair. But then I also felt pure fury, to just say it got me angry isn’t cutting it. Pure fury was radiating through my whole body like a volcano. And at some point I even asked myself why was I torturing myself and considered if I should drop it but hell NO.
I needed the answers and to get all this justified somehow and honestly it was impossible to abort. This was a book that will stay with me and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
Ok so to the good and steamy parts….
Oh Lord… Those scenes were written so delicately, beautifully and arousing beyond point of return. At the times if I “forgot” about the plot I was into a lovely and sexy relationship where a man knew what his woman needed, wanted and just how to give it to her. That was some seriously hot hot hot shit right there!
And I loved it all!!!
About the narrator:
Savannah Richards was at the top of her game here!! Her performance was out of this world, she really did this book justice and brought some fierce into it as well. She mastered all the characters wonderfully and my personal favorite one was her interpretation of Stewart! Somehow it is still so very clear in my memory and I can almost hear “his voice” in my head.
The conclusion of it all is that I LOVED and ENJOYED myself TREMENDOSULY. I can definitely recommend this book to everyone with eyes to read with 🙂 I for sure will listen to this audiobook again and can hopefully get myself a signed paperback one day because this is a book worthy to have in all editions possible!
