trilogy
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Author: Alta Hensley
Release Date:
April 5, 2022

Nick Hudson has a dangerous reputation.

That’s what I need if I’m going to survive.

Desperation makes me seek out a ruthlessly powerful billionaire.

I need protection.

He demands my virtue as payment.

I’m falling into a world of luxury and sin.

With every twist and turn, I need more.

Except this is not a man to love.

This is a man to fear.

His obsession grows. So does the threat, until I’m trapped in a world of depravity. I’ll need more than Nick’s strength to survive. I’m going to need his heart.

There isn’t a part of him that isn’t absolute perfection. He’s raw, he’s edgy, he’s dark, and his madness is everything I’ve ever wanted.

When I tell you I will never get tired of the craziness that is the Morelli/Constantine drama, I mean I will never get tired of it. Give it all to me!

And with a brand new cross over trilogy from Alta Hensley, we now meet the bastard daughter of Bryant Morelli and she’s no blushing ingenue for the virgin she is. I immediately loved this woman. I mean the second she appears on the pages, stewing in her jealousy, sneaking into a party she has no business in with her cousin Sasha Morelli. The rest of the Morelli brood know nothing about her. And Lyriope is the epitome of the family black sheep. Her parents risky decisions and irresponsible nature leave her on the receiving end of a debt to the Russians that she has no hope of ever repaying and they want blood.

The only hope she has is a man whose reputation precedes him, Nick Hudson. But Nick doesn’t do anyone favors, and his protection comes with a price…her body and her virginity. And while it sounds cliche, it just worked here, people. Maybe it was Lyriope’s fiery nature to Nick’s blatant and dangerous sexuality. I don’t know and I don’t care, I gobbled it right up.

The way I see it is,” I say as I close the distance between us, so close I can smell the sweetness of the bourbon on her breath. “You either have a gun in your mouth by the end of tonight or my cock. I don’t want to see your pretty little face blown off. But I do want to see those lips around my dick. So, choose wisely.”
… Most women would be scared at the honesty and the reality I painted of their mortality. But Lyriope shows me she is not most women.
“I’ll choose the gun,” she purrs as she darts out her tongue and licks my lips in one long and sensual swipe.

I’ll be honest, at times, I was wondering how this story can stretch over three books. But by the end, I was convinced, even while I cursed that cliffhanger to hell and back.

I loved the nods towards Alice in Wonderland and Nick’s mad hatter vibes. I loved the banter, the danger, and the sizzling chemistry. I also loved Nick’s obsession because you know I love the crazy possessive types.

A delicious start to what’s sure to be a fantastic trilogy!
