If you know me, you know that I rarely read blurbs for books in a series that I know I want to keep reading. So I was very caught by surprise when I found out that Nox and Alex/Charli were our hero and heroine in this book too. I’m so not sad about that, because I really loved both of them. I was very interested to see where things went, after how things ended in the previous book. Im going to keep things vague, because I don’t want to spill any spoilers.
This story picks up exactly where Betrayal left off. Their dynamics have changed. Nox is a different man with different rules in this new relationship. Alex is trying desperately to find out how she fits into this relationship without giving up her dream.
One thing I really loved about this story is really watching Alex and Nox get to know each other. In the first book, they are on a one week “blind date” with tons of romance and sex. They were both playing at this with no real commitment and didn’t even share personal information. Now things are different and they must learn each other, their actual personalities (and not just the ones they pretended to be during their fantasy week), their families and how their lives will fit together.
Both Alex and Nox come from very rich families that are both overbearing to their children. Both of them want to have their own lives and do what is best for them, not just for a family legacy. Their parents have something completely different in mind. Also, imagine the surprise when both Nox and Alex find out that their families have had dealings in the past.
This book is another great installment in the Infidelity series. I have no idea where the story will go from here. I don’t know if Alex and Nox will continue to be the main two characters for the entire series (I really want to find out as I go, even though the entire series has been released). So far, this series has kept me on my toes and chomping at the bit to get more.

Cunning Audiobook Narration
In the first book, pretty much the entire story was from Alex’s POV, so Samantha Prescott did almost the entire narration. Brian Pallino didn’t come into it until the very end. In this book, the narration was much more balanced between the two narrators. I really enjoyed both of them. I think they both did all the things you expect from a good narration, pace, tone, voices for both males and females. I really hope that we have them for the entire series.
