Or that's what Leila Lovett believes. Is she completely insane or does she merely see things that others aren't willing to? Her fate rests in the hands of one man.
Doctor Jonah Yoshihara is given the job of analyzing Leila to see if she's fit to stand trial. It's a high profile case that could make his career.

A hero to her villainess.

Stuck in a mental health institute, Leila has to prove that either she is crazy or she will face death penalty. Her doctor, Jonah Yoshihara, sees in her the opportunity to make his name big with her high profile case. When the sessions begin, Jonah finds that Leila has her own agenda and doesn't make his job any easier. Discovering why she did what she is accused of, will take them into an exciting and hot adventure. Leila Lovett is a disturbed and unstable person. However, once we start to get to know her we discovered a strong woman who hides under a vulnerability shield. She awakens a protective side in all the men in her life but they don't know she is smarter than they think. She has a dark and hidden past. As we dig in we learn that nothing is what it seems. Jonah changes or evolve as we read. At first, he is a professional who only cares about doing his job and has a dominant side. As he falls under Leila's spell, he becomes reckless and acts like a hormonal teenager. The plot has many layers and each one adds more elements to the story. Just when we think we have all figure out another revelation comes and shakes our theories. We have to pay attention to every detail to fully understand the complete story. Overall, the author created a solid world and the outcome sounds believable. As all D.T. Dyllin books, this one has sex in it. This time, the sex is another element of the story and characters use it as a way to communicate. There is no much tension or foreplay but it's still good. 'Villainess' is a dark romance with a twisted heroin and if you are a fan of Dyllin's work you will enjoy this book. *** I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review. ***
