It all began in Del Mar, a chance meeting with a single rule--one week only.
Or did it?
Lennox ‘Nox’ Demetri and Alexandria ‘Charli’ Collins had every intention of following their agreement but rules are made to be broken. In CUNNING they are reunited with Nox setting down new rules for the game and Charli having no choice but to follow them.
Now, once again, the game has changed. Nox and Charli’s hot sensual encounter has grown into something more but it is threatened with secrets and regrets. Is it their love and intense sexual chemistry that’s pushing them together or something darker, a puppetmaster behind the scenes pulling the strings on their love affair?
Shadowy villains lurk around each corner and everyone is suspect as Nox’s and Charli's pasts collide with the present and threaten to compel them back to their predestined fates.
Can deals brokered in the past be negated by something as pure as love and as steamy as the attraction shared by Nox and Charli? Or was it all a deception—starting with that very first meeting?
We begin off with the ending of Cunning with the words that Nox said “I can’t.” I can’t!!! Why can’t you explain?? We don’t even find out anything until midway through the book!
Aleatha does it again with another book in The Infidelity Series, Deception is full of twist, turns and suspense that you won’t want to put it down until you read the last sentence. I couldn’t devour it quick enough!
We see Charli and Nox relationship bloom but we also see a lot of unknown sources trying to get between them. When you think you have it figured out, think again, because Aleatha throws another bone our way and leaves us as stumped as we were from the first book. I’m still wondering what’s going on, who done what and who’s involved in what. I’m usually great at piecing everything together early on but Deception has me a stumped. There were so many unanswered questions in Betrayal and Cunning that we get answered in Deception but we are also left with a lot more questions. The ending of Deception left me going….
If you are a fan of Aleatha’s, she does not disappoint! The sex is hot! Nox is hotter! The writing is nothing less than superb! I know that you will love Deception, at least I did!
Pat leaned back against the couch. “I had a good feeling seeing you with Lennox. Besides, you have that whole one-week history…” He fingered the rim of his wine glass, and I tried to ignore how it reminded me of my martini glass only hours before. “I’m sure you can work through this.”
“He has my number.”
“If these were normal circumstances, I’d tell you to forget all about him. I mean, who needs someone like Lennox Demetri? I can only imagine it’d be awful to have a boyfriend who redecorates a room for you, practically weeks after you move in. One who cares enough about your dreams to pay for your education and buy you whatever you want or need, one who gives you the ability to tell Uncle Alton and Aunt Adelaide to stick their conditions up their tight asses. And girl, his looks. Damn, nobody wants to put up with those sexy blue eyes. I mean the way they light up when you walk into a room and he looks at you like he’d eat you whole. I can see how that would get old fast.” He took a drink of his wine. “Honestly, I’m not sure how you managed to stay for this long.” He shrugged. “There’s always good ole Bryce.”
I sat forward, put my wine glass on the coffee table, and after placing my elbows on my knees, cradled my head. “I don’t need Bryce. Why do I need a man?”
“If you don’t know the answer to that question, my opinion of Lennox Demetri has just plummeted. I mean, I’m sure you have a vibrator.”
