Adeline has just moved into her grandmother’s house. She plans to restore the house to its proper glory, but she finds haunts and family mysteries along the way and a shadow that may be stalking her… and she might be into it….
Soooo I had never heard of this read…. I had never seen the cover, I had never thought about reading any type of stalker romance, but my friend sent me a TikTok and that ALLLL CHANGED! HOLY CRAP ON A STICK WAS THIS AMAZING AND EVERYTHING THE BOOKTOK GAVE! OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG this book has left me in such a mean funk and the only cure will be that I get the next book ASAP! This book was just INSANE and it took me to new places I never expected so thank you SO much for my bestie and TikTok for the recommendation. HOLY POOP!
This read was so unique to me when it comes to dark romance and it is a LOT kinkier than I am used to… and I thought I have seen EVERYTHING…. And it just hit romance in the most dark variety, out of the park. I flipping loved it and it was as addictive as HELL! The story was so intriguing and had so many layers and so many plots going on that it was so interesting, but never got too confusing or too much for me. It was mystery, it was suspense, it was romance, it was creepy, it was STEAMY. It was all so good to me.
H.D. Carlton is on my new favorite authors list.
I also loved that there wasn’t just one mysterious plot, there were TWO and I loved it. Both mysteries may be similar, but they had their own way about them. It made it seem the same, but different. They made me want to read and read and read until I knew who dun it! So good! It is everything that I love about thrillers and everything I love about dark romance wrapped into such a wonderful package!
So… let’s talk about the steam….. So if you are into Den of Vipers…. This one may not have multiple men (Sad DAY!), but the steam was JUST EVERYTHING. It was dark, it was kinky, it was shocking, it was SO DAMN GOOD! These characters are just so great individually, but together I COULD EAT IT UP EVERY SINGLE GODDAMN DAY GIRL! I’m as obsessed with them as Zade is with Adeline. #stalker now! Adeline is such a fun character and I just love her, but Zade stole the read for me and I could not wait to get to his perspectives. He’s delicious and wicked and I’m freaking addicted.
Overall, the ending freaking killed me and I needed the next book yesterday… Everyone please read this crazy book, I need people to discuss and obsess about it with.
