Review ~ Camouflage (Predator and Prey #1) by Angelica Chase

Book Description:

I lived my life by two principles: order and excellence.
My moral compass steered me out of the slums of backwoods Tennessee and towards the woman I was destined to become, but not without gathering a few skeletons along the way.

Eventually, I found success, but my restless, relentless nature still left me feeling unsatisfied.

Then I met a ghost of a man.

At first, I was sure Daniello was a figment of my imagination, a beautiful and dangerous apparition with a fat cock and an animalistic hunger. He threatened my control and need for order, and in his absence, I became more haunted by my past.

He wanted me submissive.

I wanted to know him.

Then my ghost met my skeletons.

Camouflage is the first full length book of a duet.
If you are not a fan of cursing, erotic, extremely explicit sex, immoral behavior, dysfunction, or sexual scenarios that may make you feel uncomfortable, this is not the series for you.

Reviewed by Donna ~ 4 stars
***ARC received for an honest review***

“I had a past that kept me in shackles until I freed myself with excellence. It was my camouflage, my way of escape. I became bulletproof.”

This was one great suspense type read with a hot heap of erotica thrown in that only added fuel to your need to know more. This was one of those reads that you couldn’t help but keep turning those pages, waiting for the next interlude between these two characters and just when you thought you were getting somewhere Angelica Chase takes you on a whirlwind of a ride that only leaves you with more questions. This is the first book in a duet and I seriously cannot wait for the next book, the wait is going to be extremely painful.

Taylor is an extremely successful business woman, she was strong, resourceful, stubborn and a work-a-holic. She threw everything into her work and she was extremely proud of what she had achieved, but you were well aware that her past bore no reflection to her present. Through the flashbacks to Taylor’s past we are slowly drip fed her poor beginnings and her incredibly dire life as a child. Taylor did everything she could to ensure that she could leave her childhood home as soon as possible and that was exactly what she did, no matter the consequences and who she left behind.

Having been burned in the past, love and romance was not even on Taylor’s radar, men could not be trusted, and they only let you down. But every woman has needs and Taylor was a frequent visitor to a sex club where she meets the mysterious Daniello DiGiovanni…a game of cat and mouse ensues but who is the predator and who is the prey? Who is this man of mystery? These two are both alphas and this is the most epic of power struggles, but even though you know so little about him his presence is commanding. As soon as his name was mentioned I held my breath, as soon as he just appeared I held my breath, this man is definitely enigmatic, extremely possessive and crazily intuitive. He seems to know everything, especially as far as Taylor was concerned. He couldn’t promise anything but when he was there in the flesh…he delivered everything.

“Tell me, Taylor Ellison, do you think I am the devil?”
“No…I think you are his greatest creation.”

Laz was the man she left behind, he was her first love but he was domineering and incredibly controlling, he was also a drug addict. He was full of empty promises. But sometimes you can never forget your first love and this seemed to be the case for Laz. Even though they have been apart for many, many years sometimes it is hard to let go, or is it not accepting being left behind…jealous of success maybe? But whatever it is, Laz is trouble with a capital T. But will the present and past collide?

“Rising from the ashes, you spread
your wings to fly Reaching now for
those final dreams, belief will never die

Beautiful and so glorious, the
eternal bird of fire Soaring up into
the sun, leaving behind the pyre

Dreams are now your destiny;
reach with all your might

You’re a powerful inferno, ablaze
and in full flight Yesterday is over,
today has just begun

The sky is now your playground
your home is now the sun - ”

This was such an addictive read, Angelica Chase delivers a fast paced story that is heavy on every kind of action, it was captivating, unpredictable and extremely HOT! Just when you think you know what is going on a curveball is thrown and not just for kicks. This is an intricately weaved plot that will have you guessing till the end and eagerly awaiting the grand finale…I seriously need book 2 NOW!! I need to know what happens, will the secrets be revealed and will our man of mystery finally acknowledge his real feelings or keep that pragmatic head about him…gah come on Angelica Chase, deliver us some more Daniello!!
