Secrets by Aleatha Romig-Review Blitz

The twisted and intriguing storytelling that you loved in Consequences and Infidelity is coming back at you with an all-new alpha anti-hero in the dark romance series Web of Sin, by New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig. I’m Sterling Sparrow. You’ve no doubt heard my name or read it on the top of tall buildings. There’s more to my business—my realm—than what is seen above ground. Within the underbelly of one of America’s largest cities lives a world where a man’s word is either his most valuable tool or his most respected weapon. When my father ruled that world and that city, he promised me someone who would one day make my reign complete. Since that day, long ago, Araneae McCrie has been mine. She just didn’t know. My father is now gone. The city and the underbelly are now mine. The time has come for me to collect who was promised to me, to shred her life of secrets, and make her who she’s always been—mine. Have you been Aleatha’d?

Secrets is book one of the Web of Sin trilogy For series information visit:


Wow. I wasn't sure what to expect going in to this book, but I knew it was going to be dark. That the hero was not, well, much of a hero. But that he would be compelling. And, from the first time you see him on the street, you know he's someone not to be messed with, but that he's more than he seems at the beginning.

Books like this, when done well, are like catnip for me. And this was done very, very well.

Araneae and Sterling. They are drawn to one another. He because it feels destined and her because of the charisma, the power, and the connection between them. Even though she wants to resist it.

I loved the pacing of this title, the way we got to know him in a world where he can be himself before we see much if him in the world he controls, but with rules and ways of behaving because there is danger around every corner.

Darn books with spoilers...the toughest to review. Although, this one lives up to its name. Secrets are all over the place, even when you don't expect them.

I recommend this title.
