I fell in love with a lie …
She was beauty and destruction.
Kissing her was a tender song.
Fucking her, a wild poem.
Loving her, my downfall.
But she was mine.
Or so I thought.
I told her I wanted her body
and not her love.
One man offered me his love.
The other, the world.
I’m falling, falling, falling …
And there’s no end in sight.
“You make hell feel like heaven, Blaire.”
WOW!!!! This series is one of the most readable series out there. Mia Asher is why I read contemporary romance. From the first page to the every last word, I was hooked, invested in the story and emotionally connected to the characters. If you have read the first book, EASY VIRTUE, then you know that Blaire is then between two men, Ronan and Lawrence. Who will win her heart? Will either of them?
Tonight I let a man f* my brains out so he could eradicate a different man from my heart. I’ve done it before but, this time, it didn’t work. Ronan was everywhere. In every kiss and every touch. He still is.
Ronan and Lawrence. Two irresistible men, both owning part of Blaire’s heart, but in different ways. I can’t decide which one I loved more, the author did an outstanding job creating two men who both stole my heart. Although Blaire and Lawrence’s relationship was originally based on an arrangement for sex only, he became someone who Blaire could really fall in love with. But there’s Ronan, always Ronan, on her mind and in her heart.
Ronan has become embittered, jaded and filled with hate for Blaire. But the fantastic way in which the author tells the story here in multiple POV’s had me racing through the story to see where it would end up. I did not want poor Ronan to be so bitter! He tries to erase Blaire from his mind but she is always there.
When my lips touch hers , she closes her eyes and gives in to the kiss. I don’t. I can’t. And I f*king hate myself for it because even though I’m kissing this woman, it’s Blaire who I taste.
I absolutely LOVED the conclusion to this story. It is rare for me to love a sequel as much as the first book but SWEETEST VENOM is pure gold. I applaud Mia Asher for the ending she gave to her characters here and dare I even hope that there could be more books with some of these characters? I will never forget Blaire, Ronan and Lawrence.
