This is the 2nd book in Celia Aaron's Acquisition Series. This is different style of book but I love it. It has some dark twists but I was sucked in to the characters and what happens to them. Celia Aaron has a way with words that are like no other author I have ever listened to. She kept me guessing on what was going to happen next. I was invested in the characters from the first book and just as invested in them in this book as well. I felt as if I was there with them through out the unfolding of the story. I can not wait to read the next one. I will definitely be re-reading this series.
Celia Aaron is a wonderful story teller and I could picture the whole book while I was reading it. I was able to put myself there and I think that makes reading this book so great. Celia Aaron is an author to watch she is amazing and I will be listening all that I can from her.
I hope you can enjoy this book as much as I did.
Robyn Verne and Stephen Dexter were outstanding with the delivery of the story

This is Book 2 in the Acquisitions Trilogy and it’s every bit as twisted, as gripping and as compelling as book1 because this creative author certainly knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat with all the tension-filled undertones and intense interactions between her strong cast of characters. She slowly leads you up, around and through a minefield of secrets and then drip-feeds you earth-shattering reveals to just some of your questions whilst concealing and holding back on so many more. The multi-layered chapters hold secrets, darkness, suspense, tension.. and riveting revelations that emotionally impact on the characters.. and they leave you stunned, shocked, speechless.. and positively salivating for more.
I’m in absolute awe right now because of Celia Aaron’s ability to create an ever-changing twisted landscape.. a landscape that’s depraved.. delicious.. dark.. potentially deadly.. and it is, at times, quite disturbing too. I was literally rigid on the edge of my seat with my spoon half way to my mouth, poised, waiting to hear what horror Stella was about to endure next as Sin’s prisoner.. as Sin’s pawn.. as Sin’s possession.. as Sin’s passionate lover. And, as the challenging second ‘test’ grew ever closer, Stella tried hard to get emotionally prepared.. but nothing could have truly prepared her for the evil game the twisted puppet-master planned for all three acquisitions. The dynamics between Sin and Stella are complex because Stella’s gaining strength, confidence, knowledge and answers.. and now she’s met a vicious enemy who is giving her a shocking insight into the game.. the rules.. the punishment.. and the terrible consequences of failure.
The wonderfully packed cast of characters have all been richly portrayed, the pace of the unfolding storyline has been perfectly planned and the drama-filled steppingstones that’ll inevitably lead to a HEA, have all been skilfully placed by this talented author. There’s combustible sexual tension, sizzling chemistry and bitter-sweet turbulent feelings brewing between Sin and Stella en route to their HEA.
Worth a credit? YES definitely. It’s a nail-biting, drama-filled, dark, dangerous, edge of your seat emotional white knuckle ride for your senses.. and I loved every single minute. Mainly told from Stella’s POV but there are some from Sin’s POV too which gives the listener an insightful look into this powerful alpha man’s psyche, his feelings, his thoughts.. and his heart. Narration was perfect too.
