    There is just something about an alphahole that really gets my juices flowing.

They're so sexy and dominant, apparently all-knowing and all-powerful, and they know how to make demands and have people jump-to like no one's business. Sterling Sparrow was an enigma. After reading an entire book about him, I still know very little about the man. Aside from his seeming obsession with Araneae and keeping her safe and piecing out the secrets bit by bit, I know virtually nothing. He's rich, he's taken over the family business after his father's death, his business is both legitimate and illegitimate, he owns a jet, and his sex appeal leaks from the pages. Oh and he was an alphahole to beat many alphaholes. Humina humina! Then there's Araneae herself. She was smart and independent. She had suffered some huge losses and learned how to roll with the punches and taught herself to be self-sufficient. She also had the amazing ability of not being rational while believing herself to be rational. Huge events were happening around her, at first without her knowledge, but when she was made aware of the dangers she faced, she still thought she could handle things on her own. But she couldn't see things for what they were. So why continue to assert that you were quite capable of things that were beyond your abilities? Drove me nuts!! "Araneae, I wish you'd get your priorities straight. Someone set your apartment on fire. An unknown man is trying to reach you, the plane you were supposed to be on crashed, and you're worried about bears." Thank you so much Sterling for pointing out the obvious. I only wish it were obvious to her. Araneae can't see the forest for the trees. So smart and yet so... It's okay. I can't expect her to be perfect in all things. After being left to cling onto a virtual cliff, I'm looking forward to learning more about the secrets of Sterling and Araneae's past and how they affect both their present and their future. I'm especially eager to see more of the man who is quickly becoming one of my favorite alphaholes.

We are introduced to a young teenage Aranea just as her world is about to change in a huge way. If I as going to get picky I would have to talk about Aranea's reactions to this and other things that happen throughout the book. You'd think if those things were happening to you, you would be causing a lot more of a fuss than Aranea did, I know I would. But Aranea just go 4.5 In Time Stars Aleatha is BACK!! When I saw Aleatha was going back to the dark side, I HAD to read this and I'm so glad I did!! We are introduced to a young teenage Aranea just as her world is about to change in a huge way. If I as going to get picky I would have to talk about Aranea's reactions to this and other things that happen throughout the book. You'd think if those things were happening to you, you would be causing a lot more of a fuss than Aranea did, I know I would. But Aranea just goes along with it. This annoyed me a tad but didn't take anything away from the book for me as I got dragged into the twisted suspense of the story. As an adult running her own high end clothing line with her best friend, Aranea is loving life UNIL she ventures to a place she was warned never to return to again. While there she meets Sterling Sparrow, Aranea knows this man is dangerous but also knows he holds the answers she so desperately wants and needs. She'll go along with his demands to find her answers, but will she get swept away in the process? Sterling is 100% alpha and just like most of Aleatha's heroes he can be a bit of a prick sometimes, I liked how Aranea stood up to him although she did cave quickly. Sparks flew between these two as the chemistry grew and when they come together (pun intended) it's hot!! There are so many secrets and I found myself getting so frustrated on Aranea's behalf wanting the answers, of course this is only book 1 so we didn't get many. I can't go into the plot as that would be giving too much away. I will say that it is written in true Aleatha style, with great characters, secrets, lies and a big ole twist right at the end. A great start to what I know is going to be another brilliantly twisted, suspense filled series. Loved it!! Bring on book 2.

Sterling Sparrow is the prodigal son and sole heir to the Sparrow dynasty. With his father gone he’s the CEO of Sparrow Enterprises and the king of Chicago’s underground. He’s one of the most powerful, wealthy, influential men in Chicago. He had everything he could ever want except someone to reign beside him. The only thing missing from his empire was his queen. He’d been promised years ago Araneae McCrie would one day be his. He was now ready to secure his future by collecting and claiming her. She belonged to him. She just didn’t know it yet. Araneae meets a mystery man that is devilishly handsome. His dominating dark stare is electrifying, and his desire for her is written all over his face. She felt like his prey waiting to be devoured. As she learns more about this complicated man her life is thrown upside down. She’s given ultimatums and warnings, and doesn’t know who to trust, but she wants information about her past. She feels he may be the only person capable of giving her answers. She’s drawn to him, and feels a connection like she’s never felt before. -I was this man’s kryptonite. I had no idea why, but it wouldn’t stop me from using it. -I couldn’t remember ever being as attracted to any man as I was to Sterling Sparrow. -My body wanted what only he could offer. -For most of my adult life I’d fantasized about a man like him. -This man was danger personified. -His touch caused a chemical reaction. The flame was lit as heat sparked within me, stealing my breath and twisting my insides. This was my first book by Aleatha Romig, and I’m hooked on her writing! I have officially been Aleatha’d! This story was fabulous! It’s captivating, suspenseful, sexy, and full of explosive chemistry. I adored Sterling Sparrow. He’s complex, controlling, protective, possessive, arrogant, alpha to the extreme, and seductive. Oh my gosh is that man seductive. Absolutely DELICIOUS!!! There are so many layers and hidden depths to his personality, and I’m addicted to them all. I was completely consumed by this book, and I’m dying for more of this couple!

This first book, in the Web of Sin trilogy, is a great start to what appears to be a very dark, thrilling, intriguing, seductive ride. Sterling Sparrow is powerful, arrogant, commanding and sinfully sexy. He’s been waiting for his Queen and it’s time that she takes her rightful place beside him. Kennedy Hawkins is smart, beautiful, caring of others and has lead her life enveloped in secrecy. Her real name is Araneae McCrie. She doesn’t know anything about her real parents or that Sterling Sparrow has plans for her. So when these two finally meet face to face, the chemistry and the intensity of their attraction is dynamic yet it’s shrouded in questions and threats. And Sterling dangles that he knows all of Araneae’s past and that he is the key to her discovering the truth about her life. This first book sets up Sterling and Araneae. There are so many secrets and only a few are answered. Told in alternating POVs, I found that I really loved Sterling’s. His outer persona is so different than his inner dialogue. And then there is Araneae and her struggle with learning about her past with a man that she does remember she was warned against. She’s damned if she does and damned if she doesn’t and she knows that there is no way she can walk away from Sterling. She’s ready to have her Secrets have their revelations no matter the cost. This book is fast paced, sexy, and full of mystique. Sterling and Araneae have an intense and passionate connection so I’m eager to see how they progress in this trilogy. I know that this story will be full of delicious turns that will only have me anticipating the next book because this author delivered quite an amazing cliffhanger in book 1. All I can say is.....The Web has been Cast.....Are you ready to be Aleatha'd? *advanced copy provided by author in exchange for an honest review*

    Aleatha Romig has gone back to her roots in this new series installment Web Of Lies . The sexiness was brought in, secrets were held in the background, and the drama? Well that was there full force and it had no plans of going away. Kennedy Hawkins has always lived a good safe life until one day she was told about part of her real identity. It’s been years since that life changing moment but Kennedy has moved on and now has a successful career to top it all off.

It’s been years since that life changing moment but Kennedy has moved on and now has a successful career to top it all off. There’s this saying that ignorance is bliss and those words have never been more true for the situation that’s entered her life. Learning that there’s a problem with her business that needs to be handled immediately, she decides to travel to the one place that was off limits to her. Big. Mistake. Sterling Sparrow is arrogant, rude, powerful, and whatever he wants done, it gets done. In his world, only the strong will survive and everyone else will be nothing but casualties. His life has been set out for him at a young age, and now he’s finally ready to rule his empire. But what’s a King without his Queen? Kennedy Hawkins is about to find out exactly who is Sterling Sparrow is and the lengths he will go through for her. I know that this book is only the beginning of a series so were just starting to find out little things and not have the entire facts, but I really enjoy the flow of it so far. It had this sexy aura to it that just made you want to flip the pages at warped speed just so you can get your next hit and I loved that. Now the cliffhanger, I did not love but who really likes those? They are meant to drive you bat sh*t crazy until you can get your hands on the book and this author certainly made me feel like that. If you’re looking to start a new sexy mysterious series, then you should give this one a try. *Teaser used is from the author's site.

    Aleatha has a way with words. She's always able to grab my attention from the very first chapter. Secrets is the first book in the Web of Sin series. The dark setting intrigued me and the suspense made me turn the pages constantly. The book begins with Renee being sent away by her adoptive mother. Their lives are in danger and she must run. Her mother hands her new a new identity and tells her she must move to Colorado. She will cease to be Renee and she will become Kennedy Hawkins. However, bef Aleatha has a way with words. She's always able to grab my attention from the very first chapter. Secrets is the first book in the Web of Sin series. The dark setting intrigued me and the suspense made me turn the pages constantly. The book begins with Renee being sent away by her adoptive mother. Their lives are in danger and she must run. Her mother hands her new a new identity and tells her she must move to Colorado. She will cease to be Renee and she will become Kennedy Hawkins. However, before she leaves, her mother reveals her true identity. Her real name is Araneae McCrie. "The devil has been searching for you. And my greatest fear has always been that he find you." Ten years later, due to her successful company Sinful Threads, she must return to the place she promised her adoptive mother she would never go back to, the city of Chicago. She will come to regret her decision. Or maybe not, after all, she will land in the arms of Sterling Sparrow. "Sparrow, Allister Sparrow. He's currently in charge, but one day it will be his son, Sterling." Sterling is a very powerful and rich man. Someone who has waited to take Araneae as his wife. He's determined to do so without a second thought. Araneae knows he has the information about her past she is desperate to learn. He holds all the cards. She must do as he says or the people closest to her will get hurt. "Sparrow, Allister Sparrow. He's currently in charge, but one day it will be his son, Sterling." I can't believe the book ends in a cliffhanger. There were so many lies and secrets! Everyone was hiding something. Araneae didn't know who to trust. I feel like there is much more for us to learn about Araneae's childhood and her real parents. I know Sterling has to be the good guy (although he's the anti-hero) and since her life is in danger, he has the means to protect her too. I liked Araneae. She had a backbone. Even when she had no choice, she still made her dislike of the situation known. She didn't roll over and that was a plus. Sterling is a smart man. He served his country, cultivated true friendships along the way and now he's the CEO of Sparrow Enterprises. We know he hated his father Allister Sparrow and that he was promised Araneae when he was too young to know better. He does have an obsession with her and I'm sure he has been following her progress through the years. It will be interesting to know how much he was involved in her life without her knowing. I'm excited about the next book and I'm so glad Aleatha is not making me wait long. Cliffhanger: Yes 4/5 Fangs MrsLeif's Two Fangs About It | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram

Being a CEO of Sinful Threads, she investigates a matter that involves some dodgy dealings. It is all a ruse. I really liked Kennedy. She is strong, sassy, and has a backbone of steel however she always puts others over her well-being. There were times where I was screaming at her internally of course I don’t want people to think that I am nuts. She was always given a choice but not making the right decision would leave all of those she cared for open. Not knowing a lot about her past, it is darker than she will ever think. There were times I though come on girl just leave but was it possible? No. Could she out maneuver Sterling? Hell no. Did she want to? Her body said no but her head was all for it. Sterling Sparrow runs an empire he is the king of Chicago on top and in the underbelly. He has seen everything and done nearly everything as well. As long as he can relatively rest when he goes to sleep at night it has been a successful day. He is successful, domineering and has standards that are to be lived up to. There were times I loved Sterling and others where I hated them. He trusted only two people in his life. He wanted what had always belong to him and that promise he made a long time ago. It was a conscious choice that he made. He had his standards, his dominating ways. If I was in Kennedy’s shoes I would have succumbed to his wicked ways as well. About the chemistry this is where it gets tricky for me. Let me first say that the author hit the nail on the head with this one. There wasn’t too much sex the amount that she wrote about was perfect which I personally loved. It gives the book class. If that makes sense? She is with him to learn her past but truly she is with him because of the chemistry that they have although it was hard to go to the instant sexual chemistry that was there, but I adapted. Writing, Plot & Pace If there is one thing that this author can do, then it is write and I mean write. It was hook, line and sinker for me from start to finish. It is captivating, I soaked up every moment of this book. The emotions, the feels all of it wrapped up into one perfect book. Fingers crossed that the rest of the trilogy will go in the same direction. As to the plot I don’t want to give anything away and well if I were to in-depth then I would spoil besides it is hard to put into words and I don’t quite want to at the moment. Coming to the pace of the book it was actioned packed, fast paced not a dull moment and time just flew by reading this book. Verdict I have now written more than I wanted to. Let me just I am seriously impressed by this book more than I expected to be. Obviously, it ends on a cliffhanger so wait until all three are out you have been warned.

    Sterling Sparrow WOW!!! This book is just brilliant from start to finish. I couldn't put it down the story and characters are just to additive. I 've been looking forward to this book since I heard about it. I m a big fan of this author her Infidelity series is just amazing and Nox is my favourite character of hers. But I think Sterling Sparrow as just taken first place wow is just a everything you want in a hero. He's a total alpha and can be a total butt. There so many side of him that you are Sterling Sparrow WOW!!! This book is just brilliant from start to finish. I couldn't put it down the story and characters are just to additive. I 've been looking forward to this book since I heard about it. I m a big fan of this author her Infidelity series is just amazing and Nox is my favourite character of hers. But I think Sterling Sparrow as just taken first place wow is just a everything you want in a hero. He's a total alpha and can be a total butt. There so many side of him that you are in this book and it's only the first book. He can be so domineering and in your face then he's caring and gentle. He had my head so over the place but god I luvd him straight away. It's hard not fall for him he's so sexy and just drop dead gorgeous. There isn't many heroes that have done that to me. I m DYING for more of him. Kennedy/Araneae what can I say she is just had great as Sterling. She has had to deal with a lot from a young age but has dealt with everything so well and now has got a great business under her beat. But things can't alway stay perfect and deep down she knows that her past is goin to come back and haunt her. She just didn't know it was goin to be a sexy tall strong alpha guy like Sterling. The chemistry between them from the start was so hot. Araneae has not had anyone telling her to do in a long time she is so independent. So have this guy demand her to do things didn't really go down to well. Plus Sterling isn't used to people well woman do has he says. So let's just say these two butt heads pretty much from the start. I understand where both characters are coming from so I find it really hard to take sides. But I do think that they need to each other it might not come across that way but I think they do. I just think that Araneae doesn't need to listen to Sterling a lil bit more but after the way this book ended I m not sure of anything. I highly recommend this book I honestly can't say enough good things about it. The story is addictive I hated putting it down. I was dying to know how things were goin to go. I got frustrated with both characters at times but I still luvd them. I really luv it when I get a book like this that has my gripped from start to finish. The ending is still killing me. I can't believe that it ended where it did. So I m begging that we don't have to wait to long. I need more of this series and more of Sterling Sparrow.

Secret is Aleatha going back to her dark business. No she is not a mobster, well I don't think she is, but she is the queen of edgy stories filled with mysterious, commanding and powerful sexy male characters. She weaves a tale of secrets, treason and danger. Araneae's past is hidden in the shadows and even she does not know her real identity. She knows she has to stay far from Chicago as the bad man is waiting to catch her and hurt her. When she has to go back and meet her nemesis she won' know who to believe. Who is on her side and who isn't? Even if she'd really try Sterling is determined not to let her escape. She is HIS. I read secret with glee as I love it when Aleatha goes back to the dark side of the force. Secret is captivating built upon strong characters, plane crash, fires, car crash and an enigma to be solved. Who are Araneae's parents? Why is she seen as Sterling's possession? Is Sterling friend or foe hiding his game? Why.... See you at book two Lies hopefully with more answers!   Have you read Aleatha's stories?   Thanks for reading!

I haven’t read anything by Aleatha Romig, though I’ve heard about her romances—the twisted darkness she weaves throughout and the commanding men she writes about, she’s an author you’ll want to read! Secrets is filled with everything a reader could want—lies, secrets, deception, all unexpected yet enthralling, complex characters and captivating dark, delicious romance. Sterling and Araneae are multi-faced, intriguing characters that will demand your attention within an intricate storyline. I knew since that fateful afternoon that Araneae and I were meant to be, with too many factions at work, the timing was imperative and her ignorance of her fate necessary. Araneae McCrie/Kennedy Hawkins is gorgeous, intelligent and selfless. She’s also shrouded in almost impenetrable secrecy. Ultimatums and warnings are thrown her way every moment, but she remains grounded and filled with independent sass. Sterling Sparrow is arrogant and demanding, enigmatic and sinfully wicked. Countless secrets and uncertainties surround this mysterious businessman. And he’s the only person capable of giving Araneae the information she covets. In all situations, Sterling Sparrow moved like a lion: majestic, strong, proud, and above all, powerful. He was the king of the beasts and everyone within his realm was either a peasant, present to do his bidding, or prey, waiting to be devoured. Fiery tension and tangible chemistry is rife in Secrets. When Araneae and Sterling come together, they’re explosive and passionate. Always pushing and pulling. Defying each other. Bantering and engaging in battles of wits. I cannot wait to have more of Araneae and Sterling in Lies, as well as receiving answers to innumerous questions, especially to that cliffhanger. Follow: Blog | Instagram

    Secrets is a suspense filled read that will leave you begging for more. That ending oh that ending. I'm so ready for more, so ready to see what happens next. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and these characters. Sterling Sparrow, the hero is without question an ass but man there is something magnetic about him. I must admit in real life I'd slap him just on principle but between these pages I'd bang his brains out. I love me a mysterious, dark and brooding man, he's got it in spades.

    I've read my share of dark CR books with a heroine who gets swept away by some mysterious OTT asshole alpha. Some were fantastic, some were slow burn as we peel back the layers of a broody mysterious hot billionaire, and some are a high octane roller coaster ride of hot sex and danger. This?? was none of these. This fell flat for me because the hero had no real appeal. Nothing original came from his mouth and the sex scenes were lukewarm.

This?? was none of these. This fell flat for me because the hero had no real appeal. Nothing original came from his mouth and the sex scenes were lukewarm. Dialogue was rather common and I couldn't help but feel like I had read every word that came out of his mouth in many other similar stories. The heroine was all over the place. One minute she's angry at said asshole, the next she's hot all over. One moment she is defiant, and the next indulging. It was a yoyo of indecision and inconsistent behaviour. Between the two MC's I felt like they could both benefit from a healthy dose of mood stabilizers. I didn't feel any chemistry between these two at all. Their time together seemed disjointed and lacking the necessary components to warrant me excusing her willingness to be claimed by this Alphahole. As for plot, between the hero's reluctance to reveal and the heroine's inability to demand, we are left with little to chew on but a rather flaccid cliffhanger. Aleatha Romig is usually a monster in this genre. But this first installment didn't roar for me.

    4.5 🌟 Unputdownable Aleatha Romig once again weaves a story of a dark world, suspense, mystery, lies, deceit and Love. This book kept me on edge and was so engaging. I want to know so much about Araneae. Sterling is as usual our Nation hero alpha male, so is just too damn irresistible. Their chemistry was really off the chart. I really liked Araneae and her courage and backbone to stand against anything. This kind of heroins really make the reading wonderful. You must go in this book blindly.

But with an author like Aleatha Romig behind the pages…there was no doubt in my mind that I wouldn’t fall in instant LUST with that man. Ms. Romig not only gave us the perfect complex dark hero…she gave us a heroine that is his PERFECT MATCH! I just adored Araneae from the very start. She’s fearless, feisty, and independent. She’s strong, bold, and smart. These two together…oh boy! Fireworks! Antagonistic, cheeky, and intense fireworks! Secrets, book one in Aleatha Romig’s brand new Web of Sin series, captivated and thrilled me from page one. That prologue had me on the edge of my seat, ready to tackle the emotional and intense rollercoaster that was sure to come. I’m so glad that Ms. Romig is diving back into the genre she thrives in. She not only delivered a knock-out start to a new series…she penned something truly mesmerizing and unforgettable here. I can’t wait to see what twists and turns the next book in the series brings!

    I fell in love with Aleatha Romig's storytelling after reading Consequences. This first book of the Web of Sin series takes us back to Ms. Romig's dark romance roots and introduces us to the new man in town - Sterling Sparrow. He is the definition of the dark, sexy, and mysterious anti-hero who you are going to love (or love to hate) ! I Also really enjoyed Araneae. She is a strong, feisty heroine who fights for herself and her loved ones.

If I as going to get picky I would have to talk about Aranea's reactions to this and other things that happen throughout the book. You'd think if those things were happening to you, you would be causing a lot more of a fuss than Aranea did, I know I would. But Aranea just goes along with it. This annoyed me a tad but didn't take anything away from the book for me as I got dragged into the twisted suspense of the story. As an adult running her own high end clothing line with her best friend, Aranea is loving life UNIL she ventures to a place she was warned never to return to again. While there she meets Sterling Sparrow, Aranea knows this man is dangerous but also knows he holds the answers she so desperately wants and needs. She'll go along with his demands to find her answers, but will she get swept away in the process? Sterling is 100% alpha and just like most of Aleatha's heroes he can be a bit of a prick sometimes, I liked how Aranea stood up to him although she did cave quickly. Sparks flew between these two as the chemistry grew and when they come together (pun intended) it's hot!! There are so many secrets and I found myself getting so frustrated on Aranea's behalf wanting the answers, of course this is only book 1 so we didn't get many. I can't go into the plot as that would be giving too much away. I will say that it is written in true Aleatha style, with great characters, secrets, lies and a big ole twist right at the end. A great start to what I know is going to be another brilliantly twisted, suspense filled series. Loved it!! Bring on book 2. - Alicia, 4.5 Stars
