"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!!
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
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.
"It pulls you in deeper..."
I binged listed to this book in one day. It was that good. It feels like a version of Fifty Shades of Grey but with an actual plot and storyline besides sex. At this point in the story I'm not even sure who's the bad guy and who's good. The only thing I didn't like is the huge cliffhanger ending.
"on the edge of paradise"
I loved this book except for the cliff hanger that has me salivating for the next book. Knox and Charlie are seriously an amazing pairing and what is happening to them has me crazy. This book has them deeply in love but both still have secrets which could ruin them. In this book some of them come out but not enough. I also want to strangle some of the additional characters and hug some as well. Great book but I hate hanging. Going to read the next one NOW
"Better and better"
This storty just keeps getting better and better! Her best work yet. On to the next one in the series.
In this second installment of the Infidelity series the author unveils more of the deep, dark secrets from the past. I enjoy the jumps from past to present, and the introduction of POVs from different characters. The plot twists just don't stop coming, and there were points when I'm sure I actually gaped in surprise. However, I am disappointed with the development of Charli and Nox's relationship. They profess to be crazy about each other, but won't trust each other enough to confide. And there seems to be a lot of unnecessary drama surrounding this. I am also not a fan of the controlling, dominant that Nox becomes in this book. He claims to be teaching Charli a lesson for her lack of judgement in signing up with Infidelity, but he just seems to come off as a possessive jerk. And I am not opposed to BDSM in stories, but all of the talk of "punishing" and "spanking" just irritated me. I guess I was hoping for more of how they were in the first book, with the intimacy, and kink, growing from there. Even with my complaints, I still enjoyed this book and feel compelled to find out what happens next. And it looks like Nox and Charli are headed in the right direction, so looks like my next credit will go to book 3. I'm still not a fan of Brian Pallino's angry narration, but Samantha Prescott has grown on me. She does a great job switching between POVs.
"On to book 3..."
Absolutely enthralling as usual. I am very anxious to continue Knox and Charli's story. :)
"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.
