I was naïve to think my marriage to Luka Catano might work.
I was infatuated with him from afar…
Until I met him.
He loved the challenge of his next conquest, anyone would do…
A wife was never something he wanted.
Torturous was not a strong enough word to describe how I felt when I was in a room with Luka. Besides hating nearly every word that came out of his mouth, I also drowned with lust every time I looked at him.
At times I thought he might feel the same.
But nothing prepared me for what his family would make me become.
“You’ve outdone yourself,” he says. “Which Eden do I have tonight? Will you bite or will you purr?”
“I could ask you the same thing.”
He holds his hands out. “What do you think? Am I suitable to be by your side?”
“You clean up okay.”
He smirks and steps closer to me, pulling me flush against him. “Keep playing the cool act. I know it shouldn’t, but it gets me so hard.” He presses into me to prove his point.
“Have you been drinking already?” I frown.
“This is me stone-cold sober.”
“So there’s nothing to excuse your behavior.”
His hands go lower and when he still feels my skin, he frowns. His hands go lower still until they find material, which happens to be hugging my backside. He thrusts into me again and leans his forehead against mine.
“You don’t want to excuse my behavior. You like me best this way. Hot and salivating over you. Admit it.”
I shake my head. “You need to take a step back.”
Willow Aster has quickly become a must read for me. Over the last couple years, I have devoured each of her books along with her podcast, Living in the Pages (If you haven’t had the chance to check this out yet I HIGHLY recommend it.) I was so happy when Downfall popped up on my Kindle.
In the first couple pages I was a little unsure about Downfall. Would this be the first Willow Aster novel that just didn’t click with me? A fictional place, with fictional royals and an arranged marriage? It didn’t sound like this was my type of book. I am very happy to say that I was wrong.
The angst people! So much angst. Luka and Eden are both infuriating and endearing throughout this story and you never really know where things will go next. This is a love/hate relationship at its finest and I couldn’t get enough. Not only is reading about Luka and Eden an intoxicating experience, but the secondary characters are quick to grab your attention as well.
Willow Aster provides a roller coaster of emotion for readers as she introduces you to this exciting new world. Downfall is the first of four in the Kingdoms of Sin series and I can’t wait to see where Aster takes readers next
