The name's Aeron Lore. And you are...? Such a pleasure to meet you, sweetheart. Is that a southern accent? Gorgeous.
You fucking bitch.
Why so surprised? I control a billion dollar fortune. I control the news. Give me five minutes and I'll control you, too. If you could read my mind, you'd probably call me perverted. Unnatural. Manipulative. But I've learned to blend in, to be funny and charming. A predator in a designer suit.
I have no conscience. No shame in taking the things I want. And what I wanted was for Leontine Reeves to sell me her boutique tech firm so I could exploit the fuck out of it. Maybe exploit the fuck out of her, too, because desire haunts me in shades of scarlet, and I desire Leo most of all.
I never meant for this to be a love story. I fought it kicking and screaming, the same way Leo fought me. Now we're bleeding into each other, making a mess. A chaos. There's no control here. And what do monsters like me do when control leaves the building?
A Dark Romance
WARNING: 18+. Contains scenes that some may find disturbing.
WOW!! I'm not even sure how begin to tell you how much I loved this book!!
There were a bunch of things I loved about it, first of all I loved the way it was written. I read a statement where Ms. Craven said it is written in a 'stream of consciousness' style. It's meant to read as though Aeron is talking directly to you. This is brilliant, because let me tell you, being inside Aeron's mind is one hell of a fucked up crazy fun ride. He is amazingly intelligent, with no conscience whatsoever and that makes him a fascinating creature.
Truth is, you're surrounded by sociopaths, but you think most of them are just fucktards.
I guess I should clarify, this is a dark 'sort of' romance - so it may not be everyone's cup of tea. But if you're anything like me and you immensely enjoy dark romance with a side of fucked up you will LOVE this one, I promise!
Aeron is an interesting man to say the least, and I loved my time spent inside his head. He has distinct kinkery that he likes with his sex that has gotten him into sticky situations (pun intended) in the past, and it looks like that past may have come back to haunt him. This is where Leontine Reeves comes in. Aeron wants her, of course, but in the beginning we aren't exactly sure how much. But OMG, could it be the invincible Aeron Lore is about to fall in love....??
I'm self-serving. Impulsive. I like to please myself, and my desires quiver like dominoes all set up and waiting for the right stroke to make them fall.
I will say again I LOVE AERON LORE!! But I have also fallen hard for Lime Craven who has made my auto buy list! Her writing is intelligent and witty and really unlike anything I have read before.
If you can handle a little dark and will allow your mind outside the box for a bit, then I STRONGLY suggest taking this story for a spin! I hope you all enjoy as much as I did.
