I love this beautiful cover. THE EXCESS series, by Angelica Chase, starts off slowly but then gains some speed that will leave you panting ;o)
I was curious as to what had made the female character in this short story so rich or how Devin, her lover-turned-sour, had become a bastard when at first he had been so wonderful.
Nina is disappointed with life as success has brought more deceit and betrayal than money. Wealthy, but lonely, she tries to disentangle herself from the man who made her fall in love before it all turned to lies and manipulation.
I liked that Nina felt the need to change her fake lifestyle. A strong character overcomes her weaknesses to find a better way for her even in the face of temptation.
Things start to heat up when she meets Aiden, a gorgeous singer who rocks her world. Despite her secrets, he also is a bit of a mystery. I enjoyed the story more as this new relationship goes from softly arousing and romantic to hotly possessive. The text messages they share are also very cute and funny.
Paired with the steamy scenes and Nina's business affairs, this first part becomes quite entertaining. I'm now curious enough to want to read more after that bit of an abrupt ending.
When I was twenty-eight years old, I wrote my own winning lottery ticket. A simple idea thrust me onto the fast track to wealth, and into a world I had only ever dreamt about. I submerged myself in the unfamiliar, a life that seemed all too alluring … until it lost its appeal.
I made my fortune, built my castle, and then exiled myself within its comforts once reality set in.
Far too late, I discovered I was drowning in a sea of hungry sharks. Given the choice to sink or swim, I chose the latter … and it cost me everything.
Devin McIntyre, the most dangerous shark of them all, was the last nail in my naïve coffin. His beautiful smile and amazing cock tainted me in ways I could have never imagined.
I craved him. I needed him. I loved him.
Miserable with the outcome of my prosperity, I set out to change what disgusted me most—the first decision being to rid myself of Devin. Little did I know that taking that first step would make me a slave to a man far more tempting … or that my addiction to Devin would threaten to ruin it all.
If you are not a fan of cursing, erotic and extremely explicit sex, cheating, immoral behavior, dysfunction or sexual scenarios that may make you feel uncomfortable this is not the series for you. FILTHY EROTIC ROMANCE
