When a powerful man is willing to risk everything for his own satisfaction, only one woman can beat him at his own game: his wife. Or so she thinks…
“Let’s start with you calling me Stewart. Formalities seem unnecessary.”
Stewart Harrington is rich, gorgeous, and one of the most powerful men in Miami. He always gets what he wants. Anything is available to him for the right price.
Being the wife of a mogul comes with all the perks, but being Mrs. Stewart Harrington comes with a few special requirements. I’ve learned to keep a part of myself locked away as my husband watches me submit to his needs. But the more he demands of me, the more beguiled he becomes and that’s to my advantage. So I keep fulfilling his fantasies and following his rules because he doesn’t know that what he’s playing is really my game. And winning is everything, right?
Insidious is a stand-alone novel and the first Tales from the Dark Side title. Due to the dark and explicit nature of this book, it is recommended for mature audiences only.
What I liked: Ms Romig writes some seriously twisted dark books. The blurb for Insidious pretty much says it all and it's very hard to add anything without spoiling the story. What a story it is! Ms Romig has a talent for putting her leads into some pretty dire/degrading circumstances. It's not entirely believable all the time but it's fiction and entertainment, so just read it.
Paybacks can be a bi*ch in more ways than one. I could seriously sympathize with "Tori" and her overall situation. It's mind blowing to me how Ms Romig could spin and twist Insidious the way she did. Excellent plotting!!
What I didn't like: I'm not a big fan of the of certain types of sex scenes and some might find the ones in this book a bit much. However, Tori's situation is the basis for the whole story. I skipped a few of the scenes when I had the gist of what was happening. It didn't spoil the story, I just wasn't into it.
Overall a dark, twisted read with an ending that will leave your jaw on the floor!!
