CUNNING is a full-length novel, 360 pages, and the second of five books in the INFIDELITY series.
Infidelity – it isn’t what you think.
The storm of raging tension that had surrounded us since our eyes met in the bar changed. The intensity was still off the charts, but this was something different. Whatever it was affected us both. Our breathing suddenly took effort as both of our chests rose and fell.
“Take off that dress.”
Nox’s command echoed throughout the glass stall. I considered arguing, but common sense stopped my rebuttal. I’d already pushed him far enough. Starting at the neckline, I slowly exposed myself, inch by inch. His gaze followed the soaked material. As I revealed my breasts, my nipples hardened, and he let out a low growl. Down the dress went, exposing my tummy and red lace panties.
Shaking his head, Nox ran his finger along the edge of my panties. With his large hands now at my hips, he asked, “Did you do anything I told you to do in my note?”
“No.” My honesty left a trail of vulnerability and shame.
In one quick motion, Nox ripped the lace, and the shredded panties joined my dress on the shower floor. I blinked away the water as he tipped my face upward.
“No more disobeying. Do you understand?”
I nodded—not in acknowledgment of his words, but in response to the rush from once again being in his presence. Nox electrified me in a way I’d never known, and even in the absurdity of our current situation, he was doing it again. The way he scanned my nakedness as his Adam’s apple bobbed tingled my skin.
He hadn’t released my chin. “Say ‘Yes, Mr. Demetri.'”
My chest hurt. “N-Nox.”
His grip tightened.
“Yes, Mr. Demetri.”
Cunning is the continuation of Nox and Charli’s story. They knew each other from a past chance meeting on Charli’s vacation with her best friend. Charli, needs money for graduate school and gets the money by signing up with Infidelity; an agency where rich men can rent a companion for a year. Because of this, Nox hires her. I won’t say more to spoil the story.
WOW, I gulped this story down in two bites. The author writes in such a way that we have no way to escape these character’s clutches. We are pulled along on a crushing wave of heat and mystery; who are these people, and why do their families know each other unbeknownst to Nox and Charli. Aleatha Romig has a best seller here. This book ends on a cliffhanger and has adult scenes and language.
