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.
He watches me closely. His gaze, sparkling with lust, roves over my figure.
“Like what you see?” I tease.
“Not sure. Why don’t you come a little closer so I can take a better look?”
“Oh yeah?” I get on the bed and crawl toward him, taking my time as I close
the space between us. I straddle his lap, rocking my pussy on his cock. “Well,
what’s the verdict?”
“Let’s see …” he grabs me by the hips, his long fingers gripping my ass
firmly, and pulls me forward until I’m kneeling over his face. I reach for the
headboard for support and look down as my breathing accelerates.
“Perfect,” he says, his voice as thick as smoke. Smiling sinfully, his eyes are
on me when his fingers spread my folds apart and his thumb begins to rub me in
small circles. “Fucking perfect.”
He plays my body like a damn maestro. I bite down hard on my lower lip the
moment he drags his tongue along my soaked pussy. He breathes me in, his hot
breath caressing my thighs as his hands move me against his eager mouth.
“And so damn sweet.”
I’ve been dreading writing this review. How do you express a myriad of emotions in just a few lines.
I’ve always said Easy Virtue was a book I’d probably never read. Love triangles and angst are generally a big NO! Well, don’t I look like a fool now. Cos I loved it! There was no way I would have survived a year wait between book 1 and book2. Hats off to those that did.
So after finishing Easy Virtue any 11.55pm I did the obvious thing. I went straight into Sweetest Venom. I didn’t put it down until I was finished.
Now, I hated Blaire in book 1. That pretty much didn’t change in book 2. She isn’t a likeable character in my opinion. I struggled with how she loved both Lawrence and Ronan. Yes, it was a different love for each of them but she was happy with both. And that’s where my discomfort came from. I read romance as an escape. I want the fairy tale boy meets girl, blah blah blah. This certainly isn’t that. It gritty and Dirty. I’ve never been in Blaire’s shoes (Louboutains *swoon*) but I’d imagine this is how some people are in real relationships.
“Give me a thousand lives and a thousand eternities, and I would still find you and make you mine. Always.”
For the first time ever I’d have to say that a heroine I dislike didn’t spoil a book for me. I accepted that she wasn’t someone I was going to enjoy reading. Ronan and Lawrence more than made up for Blaire’s shortcomings.
Ronan isn’t the same sweet guy he was in book 1. Blaire has destroyed him. How he deals with her actions made my heart hurt for him.
he’s my savior and foe. He’s my sickness and cure all at once.
Lawrence has been though some changes too and some of the scenes with him and blaire had me swooning all over the place. His character goes so much deeper than I ever expected. I think 95% of people that read Book 1 were on Ronan’s side. Not so much after reading sweetest venom.
Mia Asher manages to take a situation that is so foreign to me and makes me feel it all. The tension and angst in this book is off the charts .
I found parts of this utterly heartbreaking but I wouldn’t take a second of it back. I’m pretty sure I didn’t draw a breath for the last few chapters either!
All fucking lies. And the biggest joke was that I fell in love with her—the most beautiful lie of all. Her kisses were deceit that tasted like the sweetest venom, her laugh a lure to my demise, and her body the damn devil’s playground.
This is the kind of read that stays with you. It reminds you that love and life is very rarely pretty. But even in the ugly you can find something beautiful.
