Charli didn't know what lay ahead for her now that she's the property of Nox for one whole year.... to do with her whatever he likes - but nothing could have prepared her for this very different version of Nox. Gone is the thoughtful kind lover from their time in Del Mar and in his place is a cold, ruthless and controlling version with many secrets and an untouchable and unspoken past. But just when Charli loses all hope of ever seeing the nice side of Nox again he surprises her yet again.... and continues to confuse and shock the ever lovin Hell out of her with his revelations.
There's some things Nox wants Charli to know however there's A LOT that he's keeping back from her..... partly for her own good and partly for his benefit. His ruthless Father comes into the story to further complicate things and throws a spanner in the works when he announces that, not only does he know exactly who Charli really is, but that he's also met her Mother. There's also a sub story told from her Mother's POV giving the backstory to her choices and life - which includes revelations, twists and a wicked plan that's centered around Charli's life and future.... a despicable plan that was brokered when Charli was just a child. The Chess pieces are starting to make their moves, lay their traps and sacrifice their pawns.... but who will be the victor, what will the cost be and when "check mate" is finally called which pieces will still be left on the Board???
I couldn't wait to jump right into this second instalment.... however N O T H I N G could have prepared me for the mind blowing revelations, the devious twists and the emotional roller coaster that this listen took me on. It's so well thought out with its tangled mixed up crazy web of a storyline... and, just when you think you're getting somewhere in the plot, AR throws in another spanner to toss things off course. You can't forecast or predict what'll happen next because this skilful Author has an endless supply of spanners that she randomly tosses into the mix and then you're, again, heading into the unknown.... holding on tight and praying for divine intervention.
Gripping storytelling at its very best, descriptive, addictive, explosive and scorching hot as well as being romantic, tender and touching at times too. There's a full cast of toxic, loveable and mysterious characters whose plans and destinies are yet to be revealed to us.... but whatever they are I know it's going to be a spectacular ride. Ends on another cliffhanger, dual POV's (but mainly Charli's), don't think of starting this book without first listening to book 1 and the narrators were pretty darn perfect.
Worth a credit? This is a 10 star listen that cost only 1 credit so Hell YEAH it was soooo worth using one on this absolutely awesome and addictive book.

Would you listen to Cunning again? Why?
yes, it is a good read with a good narrator.
What does Samantha Prescott and Brian Pallino bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
the tone and set of their voices bring a real feeling of raw emotions to the listener.
Any additional comments?
love this, read betrayal first then this. also have read others by Aleatha Romig
