One week. No future. No past. No more.
Alexandria Collins has one week to live carefree—no ghosts of her past or pressures of her future haunting her. Reinventing herself as "Charli," she is knocked off her feet by a sexy, mysterious man who brings her pleasure like she never imagined. With her heart at stake, she forgets that decisions made in the dark of night reappear in the bright light of day.
"Some of my tastes are unique. They aren’t for everyone. I understand that.”
Lennox "Nox" Demetri is wealthy, confident, and decisive—he knows what he wants. From the first time he sees Charli at an exclusive resort, he knows he wants her. Although he is usually the one to make the rules, together they agree on one:
One week. No more.
When betrayal comes from those closest to Alexandria, she must decide how far she is willing to go to survive. Choices are not always easy, especially when they involve the heart, body, and soul. After all, Infidelity is a business, and some rules are meant to be broken.
"Is it really cheating if you're doing it to yourself?"
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a sexy, new dominant hero who knows what he wants, and a strong-willed heroine who has plans of her own. With classic Aleatha Romig twists, turns, deceptions, and devotions, this new epic dark romance will have readers swooning one minute and screaming the next. Have you been Aleatha'd?
BETRAYAL is a full-length novel and the first of five in the INFIDELITY series.
I shamefully admit that this is my first Aleatha Romig book. But I can promise you it won’t be my last! Betrayal BLEW me away. This is most definitely one of my favorite books in 2015. The characters were amazing, the writing flawless and the story was perfection.
Alexandria (Alex) Collins wanted nothing to do with her messed up family. Wanting to escape her past life she reinvented herself at college. After graduating, Alex and her best friend head to a spa before they go their separate ways for grad school. Alex becomes Charli for the week. A girl who will shed her controlled behaviors and not think but feel. And feel she did when she meets to sexy Nox. I loved Alex. She is such a strong willed character that stood up for herself even though life tried to beat her down. She’s the type of character you want to invite for drinks and be best friends with.
Nox, a wealthy sexy man steps in and saves Alex from a gold digging frat boy. He exudes power and sex and I fanned myself when he spoke. Nox liked his control and pushed Alex (Charli) sexually and it was done perfectly. I loved their chemistry and felt their connection jump off the pages.
There are twists and turns in this book that I will not spoil for you but they are jaw dropping, a bit messed up but SOOOOOO good. After I finished Betrayal for days I thought about the characters and story line.
This book made me fall in love with reading all over again. It jazzed me and inspired me. I can’t wait for book #2 out in January. Yes, this book ends with a cliffhanger but it is the best kind. The kind that makes you think of all the ways the next book might play out.
This book is NOT to be missed!
"Because, since the first moment I saw you I've made exceptions. I've done and said things that I do not do. You do that to me. You make me a rebel even against myself."
I nodded, understanding exactly what he was saying. Nox had done the same thing to me. He'd made Charli into someone Alex or Alexandria would never be. Because of him I'd cheated on myself. And I loved him for it.
My eyes closed as another tear cascaded my cheek. I'd said the word, if only in my head. I loved Nox, a man with no last name.
