Plot Summary :

Nicoletta is engaged to Adrian but he is not the one she has ever wanted. It's always been Ryder , his brother , who caught her eye. She is crazy for him and despite her numerous movies , Ryder won't just give in to her. But things are not as easy as they seem . Nicolleta is hiding a big secret and if that is exposed , night will ever be the same again.

Ryder knows that waiting for his brother’s betrothed is not the right thing for him. But Nicoletta has always been his. Resisting her for years has been one of the toughest tasks for him and he is not sure if he can go on doing that for more time. But when her secret comes out , he knows that she has been playing him right from the start and she will surrender to the brunt of his fury. There will be no stopping him and this time he might just destroy the one thing he had begun to love above all.

Overall Opinion :

I have been waiting for this book ever since the author teased us with it at the end of her last book of this series. I knew Ryder and Nicoletta were gonna be something crazy and I was looking forward to it! The story was amazing and I loved the plot twist. I sort of had an inkling that what had happened but seeing I was correct was an amazing thing.

Ryder and Nicoletta were pure fire and their steamy scenes had me fanning myself. The side characters were amazing and damn that tease of the next book at the end of this one just has me right back to where I started , wanting the next book so bad!!

I would definitely recommend this book to all the dark romance loving people. This one has a couple of triggers and I will list those below so that you guys can keep those in mind before picking up this series!
