Blog Tour, Excerpt, Review & Giveaway ~ Sweetest Venom (Virtue #2) by Mia Asher

Blaire’s epic love story concludes in Sweetest Venom 

by Mia Asher!


Book Description:


I fell in love with a lie …

She was beauty and destruction.

Kissing her was a tender song.

Fucking her, a wild poem.

Loving her, my downfall.

But she was mine.

Or so I thought.


I told her I wanted her body

and not her love.

I lied.


One man offered me his love.

The other, the world.

I'm falling, falling, falling …And there's no end in sight.

He watches me closely. His gaze, sparkling with lust, roves over my figure. 

“Like what you see?” I tease.

“Not sure. Why don’t you come a little closer so I can take a better look?”

“Oh yeah?” I get on the bed and crawl toward him, taking my time as I close the space between us. I straddle his lap, rocking my pussy on his cock. “Well, what’s the verdict?” 

“Let’s see …” he grabs me by the hips, his long fingers gripping my ass firmly, and pulls me forward until I’m kneeling over his face. I reach for the headboard for support and look down as my breathing accelerates. 

“Perfect,” he says, his voice as thick as smoke. Smiling sinfully, his eyes are on me when his fingers spread my folds apart and his thumb begins to rub me in small circles. “Fucking perfect.” 

He plays my body like a damn maestro. I bite down hard on my lower lip the moment he drags his tongue along my soaked pussy. He breathes me in, his hot breath caressing my thighs as his hands move me against his eager mouth. 

“And so damn sweet.”

Our Review:

***ARC received for an honest review***

“There is no room for logic when the heart is involved. To love is to lose all sense of reason.”

So, this book…this book that I had patiently waited for…this book that I knew had the power to destroy my heart…this book that I can’t tell you how I felt after because it would give the game away because you all know I was #teamLawrence. So what the hell can I say about this book??? Gah, this is too difficult.

“I hate you for making me love you, and I hate myself because I can’t stop.”

For me this was a really quick read, in no time I seemed to be at the end and feeling a little despondent, because I have to admit I wanted more. I am a little bit of an epilogue ho and if I have been put through the wringer throughout a relationship then I like to see all the warm and fuzzies at the end and while this couple are in a great place, I am greedy, I wanted more.

“Her kisses were deceit that tasted like the sweetest venom, her laugh a lure to my demise, and her body the damn devil’s playground.”

For me, this book was definitely Blaire’s book. This book centred around her growth, her dealing with all her vulnerabilities, her complexes and issues and finally seeing that she was worth more than she thought. A product of a failed upbringing, her insecurities and low self-esteem have driven her through her life to date, it is in this book that she finally sees the light and sees that she is worth a heck of a lot more and it is this that made this book for me. Blaire had always settled for what she thought she deserved, what she thought she was good at but that will only get you so far. She wanted love, the marriage, the picket fence, the 2.4 children but most of all she just wanted to be happy and loved for who she was, not who she perceived herself to be.

“It’s good to regret…It shows that you have lived.”

Blaire was lucky because she had two men that saw the real “Blaire.” Two vastly different men, but two men none the less that loved her and yes, they did both love her as you will see in this book. While a love triangle is a love it or hate it plot for most, for me I love the angst, the indecision and the back and forth of emotions that a well written one can bring and Mia Asher delivered this spades. As I have said, I was team Lawrence, but even in my blinded state of everything Law I could always see Ronan’s positives but I did feel that Lawrence was a better fit. I had always had a hard time relating to Ronan and Mia Asher certainly gets you flip flopping with all kinds of emotions throughout Sweetest Venom. It is that constant battle of who will she choose, will she choose right and better than that it had better be Lawrence.

“Men don’t fall in love with women like you, Blaire…They lose their fucking minds.”

I was captivated with Sweetest Venom, my heart was in my mouth, I had tears, I laughed, I swooned, I sighed, I got angry, I was happy…gah…a plethora of emotions that ultimately had me in knots. At one point I really thought that Mia was going to go a whole different route, which actually excited me but when the end comes I was happy for Blaire because she ultimately got who and what she wanted.

“To love you us to self-destruct, Blaire, but I seem unable to stop.”

I have to say, I am going to beg Mia Asher for a book for the man that was not chosen. I know she has been hassled for Arsen’s story too but I really believe that this man has an interesting story to tell and one that I am desperate to hear. That is the trouble with writing a love triangle, you always want to see all sides happy, especially when they have embedded themselves into your hearts. This was a great end to this duet and while I wanted more, what I had, I loved and devoured. Mia Asher has a great talent in extracting out those emotions, putting you through the wringer and really thrusting you into the lives of her characters; this is a fantastic talent and one that as she writes she hones and nurtures. I cannot wait to read what comes next.

“I realise that he’s taken away with him a small part of me that I will never get back, leaving a hole in my chest that no man and no love will ever be able to replace.”
