On the Flap
Most fairy tales end with a happily ever after.
This is not a fairy tale. He is not her Prince Charming about to whisk her away into the sunset. This is a story about betrayal, lust, desire and, ultimately, revenge...
And revenge can only lead to one thing.
He was my stranger, my visitor, my shadow in the corner of my room. He stalked me, watched me, knew everything about me. But all I could do was sit and wait. I waited for him to visit me night after night. He was becoming my addiction, my craving, my obsession. He knew every inch of me, but I knew nothing about him.
His calls himself Lotus and, as crazy as it sounds, I think I’m falling in love.
I wanted to take her, possess her, dominate her, and ruin her. I wanted to ravish her, please her, and consume her until I couldn’t take much more of her.
She will want me to kiss her. She will want me to hold her all night so that she feels a connection with me. I would make it so that she would seek me out in the dark. The one that satisfies her ultimate fantasy. A stranger who sneaks into her room. Someone who gives her the ultimate pleasure, but also seeks to give her ultimate pain. Pain she has never had to endure. Pain that will eat away at her until there is nothing left.
She was my nemesis, I was her lotus. And payback was a bitch.
The title says it all. This book begins as any typical romance. Dean and Tyler met as children in school. Growing up together they built a bond that was hard to deny or to break until one day when Dean and his family disappear. Tyler missed him dearly but held onto hope that one day he would come back for her. A hope she had to eventually give up in order to go on with her life.
Now grown up with a successful career, Tyler is living on her own but notices strange things happening in her apartment. Little things like her favorite pen missing, her toilet paper roll flipped the wrong way. Tyler decides to take a chance and leave a note for her mysterious visitor. To her surprise, the stranger responds. With the responses come nightly visits that will leave you a little hot under the collar. As the story goes on, it is revealed that her mysterious visitor is not really her night in shining armor but a dark knight.
This was a well-written story that keeps your attention. It was one of those books that made me want to shut out the outside world just so I can see what happens next. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. While not a typical romance, it still has the singular theme as they all have, love and what two people will do to keep it.

You can always find me with my nose in my Kindle reading a romance novel starring a tough talking, hard loving alpha male and sassy heroine. For the past six years reading has been my addiction. I am always up for a good read and am excited when I get any suggestions. My other loves are working out and spending time with my hubs, family and friends.
