Aleatha is a masterful storyteller who builds a novel carefully like a house of cards until it all comes crashing down with her mind blowing, unpredictable, heart pounding twists and turns.

I didn’t think anything would be able to top BETRAYAL, but CUNNING met all of my expectations and even more. I had no idea where Nox and Charli’s story was going to go next. Since BETRAYAL left off on a major cliffhanger, there is no time wasted in picking up the story from there. The atmosphere of this of this book is even deeper and darker and more shocking. This installment is again told in the past and the present, which weaves Charli’s present and future and her mother’s past together. It was so interesting to see how and why both of their lives are they way they are. I definitely have a lot more sympathy towards Adelaide Montague Fitzgerald after learning her story.

We also get to learn a bit more about Nox’s background and hints were dropped about who he was before he met Charli. Nox’s character is still quite the enigma. For the first 50% of the book I really had begun to hate Nox, but that is because we didn’t truly know who he was. When he was in Del Mar with Charli, the “vacation” side of himself is who we all met. Honestly in this book, Nox was one of the biggest alpha assholes that I had ever read about. But yet I kept coming back for more hoping that the man would redeem himself. It was quite refreshing to read about a male character who wasn’t perfect and sweet all of the time.

I just love the way the story unfolds and secrets are revealed in a suspenseful, jaw dropping, and chilling way. Each character is so mysterious that you never know who you can trust at every corner. The INFIDELITY  series has easily become one my all time favorite series and I will forever read any and everything that Miss Romig writes!

*This series MUST be read in order.

**I received a copy of this book via the author in exchange for an honest review.
