SECRETS, Web of Sin book 1

The twisted and intriguing storytelling that you loved in Consequences and Infidelity is coming back at you with an all-new alpha anti-hero in the dark romance series Web of Sin, by New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

I'm Sterling Sparrow. You've no doubt heard my name or read it on the top of tall buildings. There's more to my business--my realm--than what is seen aboveground.

Within the underbelly of one of America's largest cities lives a world where a man's word is either his most valuable tool or his most respected weapon. When my father ruled that world and that city, he promised me someone who would one day make my reign complete.

Since that day, long ago, Araneae McCrie has been mine.

She just didn't know.

My father is now gone.

The city and the underbelly are now mine.

The time has come for me to collect who was promised to me, to shred her life of secrets and make her who she's always been--mine.

Have you been Aleatha'd?

Secrets is book one of the Web of Sin trilogy.

Get ready to add Sterling Sparrow to your “a*holes with a heart of gold” list. He’s powerful and ruthless but almost from the start you can tell that he will protect his woman with everything he has. Yes, even if she doesn’t know she’s his yet. Keeping in line with Ms. Romig’s previous alpha males that you love to hate, Sparrow can show Araneae his softer side and the next minute his darker side. Ms. Romig has yet again written a story so full of secrets and lies that even though you want to know them all immediately, you also know the unveiling is well worth the wait. Of course we’re left with another stunner of an ending but that god the wait won’t be too long

When trying to decide which book I was going to read by Aleatha Romig, I totally judged the book by it’s cover! Yep! Guilty???? Isn’t it a beautiful cover?! And of course I loved the title and wanted to know the “secrets!” But once I began reading, I was immediately hooked during the prologue! Then, I found myself talking OUT LOUD to the main character, “Don’t do it!! Don’t go to Chicago,” during the very first chapter!! I have read romance mysteries/thrillers before, but I have never really enjoyed them UNTIL THIS BOOK. Secrets is the first book of the Secrets Trilogy. I can’t wait for the second book, Lies, to be released on December 4th because the first book ended with a cliff hanger!!???? ......of course I have already Pre-ordered it!! ?

If you have been waiting for the next book for Aleatha, I can tell you that the wait is worth it. You will not be disappointed, you will be sad that it ends so soon but there will be more. And more of Sterling Sparrow is a very good thing. Sterling Sparrow is as sexy, demanding and intriguing as any hero that Aleatha has written before. He will leave you breathless and wanting more from him. Aranaea is the woman he has waited his live for because she belongs to him. But he must tell her the "Secrets" of her past and keep her safe. But she is a strong, independent woman that has a sassy mouth that Sterling finds appealing but he has to make her see that he is the one to protect her. So grab this book and enjoy the roller coaster ride, keep your hands in, hang on tight and lose yourself in the pages of "Web of Sin". **I received a free copy of this book to read and review and this is my honest opinion**

As always, Aleatha Romig had me hooked within a few pages. After writing a few lighter romances, Aleatha is back to what she does like few others: writing dark romance. Kennedy Hawkins recalls the day her life changed as she knew it, when she was sixteen, known as Renee Marsh, living in Chicago, and everything she'd known to be true was unraveling. Fast forward ten years, and now known as Kennedy, she has finished her degree and started a successful business, dealing in silk garments, with her college friend. When things don't add up at one of their distribution centers, Kennedy makes the bold move to return to Chicago to investigate the matter because her business partner and best friend is in late stages of pregnancy and ready to deliver at a moment's notice. Knowing she was told by her mother at sixteen to never come back to Chicago, she's taking a chance. But, since she really can't imagine what harm could befall her on such a short trip, she does it anyway. Sterling Sparrow is a man of means, and gets what he wants, yet an enigma. As far as he's concerned, Kennedy Hawkins is his...even if she doesn't yet know it. Sterling commands a world unknown to many in the general public, real estate mogul on the outside, but exactly what is he involved in under wraps? HIs place at the top of the underworld of Chicago is secure after succeeding his now deceased father, but having Kennedy Hawkins at his side will prove that point even more. This story had me counting the last 50 pages because I didn't want it to end, knowing I need to wait another few weeks before the next in the series is out. Aleatha's dark side is back with a vengeance.

I loved the Infidelity series and was so excited to see this new series being released. Once I started, I could not stop! It’s a must read if you haven’t already.

Another great series by Aleatha Romig! I love all of the twists and turns of this first book in this new series. So many questions! I'm glad to see release dates are already set for the rest of the series and coming almost back to back. I can't wait to start seeing the puzzle pieces of her past fall into place.

I enjoy a good dark suspense and I enjoyed the premise in this book. Sterling and Kennedy have an instant attraction. The chemistry eventually was palpable from the pages, but it was a little too forced for me in the beginning. I did like the eventual build up between them. It will definitely be a power play between them behind closed doors and I can't wait to see how it all plays out.

This is the first book I have read by this author and it will not be my last. This book very quickly captured all my attention and refused to give me any respite until I had finished reading it. That was really no solution to my problem as it only left me on edge and craving book two. The storyline is complex and layered, the characters well developed, the chemistry hot and the emotions intense and powerful. Plenty of drama, secrets and twists are craftily woven throughout the plot to maintain your interest. Sterling and Araneae are characters that quickly worm their way into your heart. Whether you are hating-to-love the dark, controlling Sterling or cheering on sassy and spunky Araneae as she goes toe-to-toe with him, these characters shall put your emotions through their paces. A absolutely excellent read and an enticing start to this new series.

This book SUCKED. ME. IN! I didn't want to finish it in one day, because I wanted to take the journey Araneae was on. Sterling, this man is full of power and mystery and we haven't begun to get a glimpse of him beneath his surface. I also love how Aleatha portrayed the scenery as if I'm really there. I trust she is going to put us through one hell of ride with a lot of secrets, twists and turns that I'm not even sure I can conjure up, but I have already started to put some theories together. I can't wait to see how it plays out. This book does end on a cliffy and each book in the trilogy must be read in order.

Secrets is a new spine-tingling series that left me craving for more. This book lives up to its title with unpredictable twist and turns as each scene unravel. But are they the truth? Sterling Sparrow is an enigmatic, sexy, and an alpha-male, through and through. He got this unexplainable charm that attracts every woman just by looking at him. Araneae McCrie a beautiful, independent, and fierce kind of a woman that just won't follow any man's bidding. Two strong-willed characters that complement each other. The banter, arguments and the sexual tension are just perfect to get you hooked to the story. Well-written, thought-provoking plot are enough reasons to start this series. You won't be disappointed as Ms. Romig delivers the kind of story she's masterfully known for. I thoroughly enjoyed it and a must read for sure!

Secrets is a suspense filled read that will leave you begging for more. That ending oh that ending. I'm so ready for more, so ready to see what happens next. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and these characters. Sterling Sparrow, the hero is without question an a** but man there is something magnetic about him. I must admit in real life I'd slap him just on principle but between these pages I'd bang his brains out. I love me a mysterious, dark and brooding man, he's got it in spades. Araneae, the heroine is a sassy, spit ball whom I can see myself befriending. I loved the dynamic between these two and can't wait to see how their relationship develops over the course of the series. I definitely recommend this book. Copy provided by author

Oh how I love Aleatha's dark side!! Secrets was one of my most anticipated reads of 2018. I could not wait to get my hands this book! Let me tell you, it does not disappoint! Araneae and Sterling's story is complex, captivating, suspenseful and scorching hot! I was hooked from the very first page. The deeper you get into the book, some secrets are unwoven from the web of lies in Araneae's life but that only left me with even more questions. It's intense! I have been Aleatha'd before, so I trust no one! The ending of the book is a huge cliffhanger that left me questioning everything we learned throughout the book. Like...WHAT? HOW? WHO? WHY? Trust me, you will not be able to put it down once you start! I can not wait for Lies!!!!
