A deadly lover. His perfect mate. Asher is everything Aria's never dared to imagine: sexy, confident, and rich. But if she convinces him to take her to his bed... her first time may be her last.
Incubus Asher Chain seduces every woman he meets whether he wants to or not, and refuses to let anyone grow close to him. Until the alluring, tattooed waitress Aria Hyacinthe admits she’s been living in her car. Enthralled by her unusual beauty—and terrified he’ll succumb to his deadly, incubus needs—Asher offers her a place to stay.
Living in Asher's loft above his gym, Aria's desire for his body is growing more urgent with every touch. Used to being the backward, shy one, in his presence she becomes fierce, captivating, and breaks down Asher’s walls against all his attempts to keep his distance. She has no clue that if he gives in to her passionate pleas, she won't survive the night, just like all the other women who have fallen victim to his charms.
But the deeper Asher and Aria fall in love, the harder he must fight the incubus in his soul, demanding her life.
At first, the story felt too rushed, moving along like a freight train, but once the entire story was finished finished it was more apparent that the pacing was in keeping with the Incubus storyline. More lust = loss of control = another dead female. So the more lust Asher was feeling towards Aria, the more likely he was to give in to his true nature and swallow her life force in one delicious bout of incredible sex. The fast pacing actually enhanced Asher's conflict and inner turmoil, played heavily into the back and forth indecision about having sex, and overall, fit the sexy storyline to perfection.
Both Asher and Aria have baggage brought over from childhood and past relationships, and although they endured horrific things it was the past that molded them, gave them depth. They fit together, that's all you can say. They just really worked!
My first thought upon finishing the book was that I am sorry I waited so long to read it! Definitely going to search out more from this awesome writing team!
