I play the role well.
The grieving widow is a new one, but I can do it: shaking hands, sad smiles, even a tear or two when necessary. The acting isn’t new. I’ve been doing it my whole life.
The truth is too painful to reveal, too upsetting for those around me. They don’t want to see who I truly am…what I truly am.
They don’t want to know I’m a killer.
Oh boy…where to start with this one. Aleatha Romig did it yet again. She writes these dark, twisted stories, and somehow I end up LOVING them. Me, the one person who can’t handle reading anything dark. Well, Trish has been coming out of her shell. And boy I am glad I didn’t pass this one up.
The synopsis is soo intriguing. This beautiful woman you wonder, what could push her over the edge enough to make her want to kill?? Well that’s something you need to find out when you read my friends. You can’t make this shit up! Well Aleatha can. And she does. This story is twisted; they lie, and deceive, they scare the shit out you; they kill.
I am a huge Aleatha Romig fan, and this is by far her best writing. Bar none. The story is written in first person from Vik’s POV. Victoria Harrington is such a strong woman. To endure what she’s been dished out, and the sleazy men she must keep company with for the duration of this book is appalling, including her husband. I was dying inside for Vik. I was terrified, scared. The fear as I read consumed me. BUT…Vik was always in control of her emotions…even when she was in the most uncomfortable positions, (pun-intended) you felt her strength. You may have pitied her at times but never did I think she would go down without a fight.
Every single time I picked up my kindle to read again the words on the page surprised me. This is one sick and twisted story my friends. God, I loved it!! Haha!! Is that even normal? NOPE! Don’t care. Just when I thought I had it all figured out, BOOM…Aleatha figures out a way to twist it into something else, something MORE sick and demented.
This story truly is a mystery. Till the very very very last words, I was still OMG’ing…and WTF’ing.
It’s an authors job to keep you on your toes when writing the BEST Angst and the BEST Suspense. She does that. I found myself second guessing all that I had imagined was good, or maybe who I imagined was an ally, or even an enemy.
So many questions…Who to trust, and who not the trust? Who’s more of a slimeball then the next. And through it all, my heart was beating out of my chest.
I can say that in my opinion, Aleatha Romig has become “The Queen of Suspense”
Mrs. Romig is very naughty in this book too ladies. The sex is off the charts. And very kinky. I might blush the next time I see her.
I am going to give my 5 HOLLAS and my 5 STARS to our Queen. And encourage you all to take my advise and read this.
This book is MINT Approved!
