The thrills, heat, and suspense continue to add up...
One chance meeting
One sexy, possessive alpha and one spunky, determined heroine
One week of uncontainable, unbridled passion
One impulsive decision
Two declarations of love
The sum of intertwining pasts, lies, and broken rules
OMG did she just do that? She did. She did "that" and now I am officially dead!!! Why and mid sentence too... Seriously????? Just when I thought Aleatha Romig's "Infidelity" series couldn't get any better, she goes and takes Alex and Nox's story to a whole new level, a level I couldn't have ever imagined, a level that left my heart in my mouth, my nerves in a constant state of melt down and my ass metaphorically battered and bruised from this edge of your seat turn of events. This book was a constant build up to "THAT" ending and yes, Aleatha got me again!!!!
The sum of intertwining pasts, lies and broken rules equals.... Entrapment.
"Entrapment" is the fourth book in this crazy series and to be honest, I was a little apprehensive about diving in. So much had happened in the previous books. There were so many twists and turns that had left us gasping, so many pieces of a messed up puzzle that had left us shocked and so there was a part of me that wondered whether I would remember everything that had happened or whether things would start to feel a little disjointed because I'd forgotten some of the links. Nope, it didn't happen. In fact everything came flooding back the minute I began to read and it took no time at all to immerse myself back into the world of the Montagues, the Demitri's and of course the Collins, although I have to say, there were moments I felt like I had stepped into some kind of parallel universe when it came to some of these characters. Seriously, were these people for real? Some of them really did have a screw loose!!!
My eyes were definitely opened to so many aspects of this story and as the twists continued to roll in thick and fast, my emotions were on a constant state of high alert. Alton was like the devil himself, wearing his f**ked upness like a badge of honour but this time he had a side kick. Bryce... OMG he seriously scared the ever loving life out of me. He was a psychopath of the worst kind and he was taking no prisoners when it came to achieving his end goal. My heart broke for his victims because there was no choice. There was no standing up to this man. He held all the cards. And as for his mother... she really was something else. A bitch of the worst kind, out for herself and her family name trampling on anyone who got in her way. And then of course there was Adelaide whose character just broke my heart. I never thought I'd be saying that when I finished reading book one that's for sure. I loved getting an insight into her relationship with Oren who again, left me surprised time and time again.
I'd told Charlie once that life wasn't a fairytale and I wasn't Prince Charming,
but in my wishes, I'd imagined storming the castle and freeing the princess.
That's what she was to me: my Princess.
This book was just brilliant and so completely addictive. It drove me mad reading it but it was so worth it. My nerves are grateful there is only one more instalment to go. Then I can go get counselling and begin my recovery. Another ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Aleatha and so well deserved. I'm going to go get myself a whiskey now to calm myself down, god knows I need it!!!
DETONATIONS OF RED.
Flashes of white.
Explosions—visible to only me—momentarily hindered my vision. Blinking, I tried to make sense of Deloris's text message.
“ALEX GOT INTO A CAR WITH ALTON FITZGERALD. WE ARE FOLLOWING.”
Though the plane ascended higher and higher, my heart fell to an abyss, the place where my stomach used to be.
I read it again.
The words refused to change.
Emotions boiled within me, creating a turbulent concoction capable of destruction. I looked toward the small window, expecting to see swirling clouds, but saw only the deceiving blueness of a complacent sky. Despite the misleading calm, disbelief, hurt, and rage swirled through my body, rushing through my blood, tightening my chest, and weakening my knees. Unconsciously, my fingers balled, creating fists that needed to connect with something—with anything—as I increased the pressure on the phone. Surely it would crack and shatter.
I read the words again and again.
They didn't make sense.
Charli wouldn't do that. She wouldn't willingly get into her stepfather's car.
Something terrible had happened.
I'd witnessed her apprehension and disgust when it came to Alton Fitzgerald. She'd shared her fears and some of her stories. He was the other devil, the one she spoke of. No matter what he'd done to her or not done to her in the past, being with him was dangerous. She knew that and so did I.
Charli wouldn't willingly go with him, not after she'd promised me she'd stay safe.
I clenched my teeth, hearing her words in my mind, her promises...her lies.
When she refused to wait for me for this trip to Savannah, Charli had promised she'd stay with Deloris.
According to this text message, she hadn't.
That's what the words on my screen were telling me. Deloris's message confirmed that Charli had done the one thing I forbade her from doing. She'd put the one person whom I'd entrusted to her care in danger.
She'd willingly sacrificed herself.
I needed to understand why.
I needed to speak to her, but I couldn't.
Since the plane had just left the ground, I couldn't make a call until we were high enough for the Wi-Fi to be activated; however, that didn’t stop my rant. Pounding the tabletop before me with the butt of my fist, a tirade of words spewed forth. The outburst, infused with obscenities, echoed uselessly through the cabin.
Wisely, Isaac remained quiet, rightfully assuming I'd share more when I was ready. The flight attendant, though, was new. She didn't know me.
“Mr. Demetri, is everything all right?” she asked, her eyes bigger than dinner plates as she hurried around a wall and moved toward me. With each step she teetered one way and then the next, her body thrown off balance as the plane continued its ascent.
“No! Nothing is all right. Go sit down before you fall. There’s nothing you can do.”
“Sir,” she said, looking down at the phone still in my hand. “If we’re not yet out of the range of cell towers, we will be soon, but once we have Wi-Fi you'll be able to Face Time.”
I reined in what little self-control still remained. This wasn't my first flight. “I’m aware.”
“However, if you don't want to wait, the plane has a satellite phone. Would you like to use that?”
What? Why didn’t I think of that?
Because I’m too stunned to process.
“Yes. Get it right away.”
Her knees buckled as she maneuvered toward the cockpit, her hands supporting her one way and then the other.
“I’M CALLING ON THE SATELLITE PHONE. I WANT DETAILS!”
I sent the text to Deloris, not caring if it would send or if she would get it. Just pushing the letters gave me something to do.
As soon as the flight attendant placed the satellite phone in my hand, I began dialing the longer-than-normal string of numbers. With each second that I waited for the connection, my blood pressure rose another notch. The rush coursing through my veins filled my ears with an internal roar, muting the engine’s drone.
"You have reached—"
Though the plane continued its climb, at the sound of her voice, my stomach took another nosedive. Hitting the disconnect button, I called Mrs. Witt. She probably should have been my first call, but I needed to try to reach Charli. I wanted to know that I could.
Now, I knew that I couldn't.
As the satellite phone again waited to connect, I reached for my own phone and pushed the app on Charli's tracker.
My mind reasoned that it wasn't because she was unreachable. She may have gotten into a car, but she wouldn't take off the necklace. There was nothing on the app, because we didn't yet have Wi-Fi access and the cellular service was unavailable.
As soon as the satellite phone began to ring, Deloris answered, “Lennox we're following her...”
“What the hell happened? Where is she? Where is that bastard taking her? Why the fuck did she get in his car? Why didn’t you stop her? Did he threaten her?”
“She’s a few hundred yards ahead of us on the street. We’re making our way out of the city. According to her tracker, her heart rate is elevated, but otherwise, we believe she's safe. According to the GPS it seems as though we’re headed toward her home.”
“Her home?” I asked incredulously. “No, Deloris, her home is in New York.”
