Title: Lie with Me
Author: M. Never
Series: Decadence After Dark #4 (can be read as a standalone)
Genre: dark erotic romance
“Life’s too short not to have sex or eat chocolate cake.”
For some reason I actually preferred the relationship and chemistry between CJ and Tara than I did between Kayne and Ellie (despite the lack of BDSM-style sex within this instalment). Both characters were strong and independent, with a wicked sense of humour and some crazy crazy love of sex, and just work absolutely brilliantly together.
“Tell me a secret.”
The pace of this book was much better than the previous ones, with the plot unfolding and developing slowly throughout rather than being left until the very end, and also being pretty suspenseful too. It was also lovely to have the involvement of characters from the other books, but in a way that feels highly natural, as opposed to forced.
A funny, steamy read – and, I believe, leaving enough scope for a second instalment on CJ and Tara should M. Never desire to tell us more of their story.
