As the very young, very beautiful Iris comes into the handsome, rich and successful forty year old Author Alasdair's life you could understand his hesitancy, vulnerability and hope filled desires after all life had bestowed on him a wife (now ex) from Hell who had given him nothing but low expectations and disillusionments. Then, like a moth to a flame, he is drawn in by this beautiful creature who shamelessly seduces him and awakens the sexual beast in him and the more he has the more he wants of her and only her.... his Iris.
But she is an enigma, his lover but a stranger, a mysterious puzzle that he just can't understand or trust because she gives him nothing, nothing but secrets, lies and disappearing acts but still he longs for her touch, her body and the all consuming connection they have formed for each other which borders on obsession but he doesn't care. Alasdair is tortured about the age difference, the mystery and suspense surrounding Iris and the words of love she gives him over and over again but his ever growing curiosity to know the real Iris, and his suspicions that she was an unwilling pawn in an unknown game, made him desperate and desperate men do desperate things..... but so too does desperate women.
Wow, this is a book like no other book I've listened to, it carries you along in their obsession for each other, through their sexual escapades and your mind is constantly whirling as to who Iris is, what does she want, why is Alasdair doing this to himself, who is the stranger that is always around. So many questions then the mystery and suspense takes an even deeper more sinister turn which still leaves you clueless but glued to every unfolding Chapter, Chapters of lies, drama, wild and frantic sex, disappearances, reappearances and, despite it all, the feeling that they deeply loved and deserved to overcome it all. But you, like Alasdair, are clueless and are swept up and carried along in the unfolding story just waiting for answers to all the questions that have built-up until finally, finally you reach the beautiful end of a spectacular ride.
Told strictly from Alasdair's confused POV, there were a few other characters but the spotlight shone directly on Iris and Alasdair's affair and the narration was spot on..... in the depths of Hell one minute then in orgasmic Heaven the next Jason Clarke nailed and rocked it.
Worth a credit? If ever there was a book that was worthy of a credit it's this one.... the writing skills of RKL, the build-up, the suspense, the love story (hot sweaty sex an all), the reveal and the heart stopping HEA were all just perfect. So yeah, worth a credit and I'm eagerly looking forward to her next book relating to characters from this Trilogy.

This has to be one of the best books I've ever listened to. I will only get an hour of sleep tonight b/c I couldn't turn it off. R.K.L. is an auto DL already, but this is by far my favorite of them all! It was the perfect mix between erotic and suspenseful romance. In the beginning, I thought it was going to be a shallow story filled with sex and nothing else, but I'm so so glad I gave it a chance! It turned into a raw, intense, deep, love affair that seemed doomed from the start, but the HEA ending was as much a shock as a great relief. Okay enough, just add it to your cart! Absolutely credit-worthy!
