“My Charli was the most beautiful blue dot in the world.”

Entrapment is the penultimate book in the totally thrilling Infidelity series and Aleatha Romig doesn’t let up on this rollercoaster ride. It seems we are going around again!! After the jaw dropping ending to Deception, Entrapment begins where we were left hanging.

Charli is once again in the hands of her evil step father, Alton and Bryce, the man that she is expected to marry, two men that I wouldn’t and couldn’t trust as far as I could throw them. The lengths that these two will go to, to line their pockets with ill-gotten gains holds no bounds. Alton and Bryce are two men without morals or scruples and it seems that they haven’t played their best hand yet.

“I knew that no one within the manor would throw me a life raft. I was alone in a sea of people.”

Entrapment is a total role reversal from the previous books. In Entrapment, Charli really shows her inner strength and shows that she can be just as conniving as the men that are trying to dictate her life. Charli has a plan, but it remains to be seen whether it holds any merit and the possibilities for failure are endless especially when she is up against two men that are dictators and have a bottomless pit of money at their fingertips to ensure her co-operation. Blackmail, security, locks, tracking, video feeds are the bane of her life and ensure her compliance. She is a hamster in a cage and big brother was definitely watching.

“You said it, Alex. Nothing here is real.”

Charli has to pull on every ounce of reserve she has to get through this, but it is Nox’s love and the love that she has for her mother that keeps her going. At the end of the day all Charli wants is for her mother to be well and out of Alton’s clutches, she wants Montague to remain in the family and ultimately wants her life with Nox to resume with no threats hanging over them. This is a tall order for someone that is fighting blindly and against formidable opponents but you didn’t think that Nox was going to let her do this alone?

“…If she hadn’t done everything she could to save her mother, Alex would never have forgiven herself.” ~ Deloris

“And if I don’t do everything to save her, I’ll never forgive myself.” ~ Nox

Nox is on the outside barely holding onto his sanity and it is here where the role reversal is complete. We finally got to see Nox’s vulnerable side and it was a joy to see. Nox is not as impenetrable as he first thought and days and nights without Charli by his side is the worst punishment he has ever endured. That feeling of being powerless and not in control is something foreign and not something that Nox wants to become familiar with either. Nox has his own allies and his own bottomless pit and can be just as conniving as Alton and Bryce and it seems that he is definitely going to fight fire with fire.

“Alexandria Charli Montagu Collins is mine. I’m not a good man, but I’m the only fucking bad I want near her.”

The highs in this book were just as great as the lows and the fact that, Oren, Nox’s father steps up to the plate in this book absolutely made my day. I always knew that there was good under the Oren Demetri businessman façade and Oren really makes his presence felt in Entrapment. Alton was an adversary once and Oren will definitely not be walking away this time. The insight into his past was extremely welcomed and once again gave a totally different opinion of the man that we were originally led to believe Oren was.

Entrapment only spans a few days of Charli’s incarceration at Montague Manor. But, and this is a huge but, this is the culmination of every underhand action, the deceit, all the secrets, lies and manipulations come to a head in a frenzy of activity. This book is chock full and you really need to take your time in reading to really get to grips with everything that is unfolding before your eyes. So many jaw dropping moments as some of my theories became a reality and even though they were what I originally anticipated their delivery made no less of an impact. There really is no limit to Alton and Bryce’s actions in this disgusting battle of power and greed, where non-compliance is not acceptable by any means.

“I have news for you, Spencer, I’m not weak. I’m also fucking smarter than you. You’re going down and when you do, you’ll be the one to suffer.” ~ Nox

Aleatha Romig has a conniving mind and her delivery of these stories never fails to captivate me with every shocking twist and turn. She is the queen of suspense and intrigue and always delivers an unputdownable read. Normally, series have usually lost their steam by now but with each book in this series the plot just thickens and layers upon layers of intricate plot twists finally begin to unravel and piece by piece the fragmented picture starts to become whole. This was a fantastic prelude into the final book, Fidelity that is scheduled for release in January. How on earth I am going to be able to wait till them remains a mystery in itself. As usual Aleatha Romig ended Entrapment with a bang and one that you definitely won’t be able to forget. Another fantastic instalment, I need Fidelity NOW!



Flashes of white.

Explosions—visible to only me—momentarily hindered my vision. Blinking, I tried to make sense of Deloris's text message.

Though the plane ascended higher and higher, my heart fell to an abyss, the place where my stomach used to be.
I read it again.

The words refused to change.

Emotions boiled within me, creating a turbulent concoction capable of destruction. I looked toward the small window, expecting to see swirling clouds, but saw only the deceiving blueness of a complacent sky. Despite the misleading calm, disbelief, hurt, and rage swirled through my body, rushing through my blood, tightening my chest, and weakening my knees. Unconsciously, my fingers balled, creating fists that needed to connect with something—with anything—as I increased the pressure on the phone. Surely it would crack and shatter.

I read the words again and again.
They didn't make sense. 

Charli wouldn't do that. She wouldn't willingly get into her stepfather's car. 

Something terrible had happened. 

I'd witnessed her apprehension and disgust when it came to Alton Fitzgerald. She'd shared her fears and some of her stories. He was the other devil, the one she spoke of. No matter what he'd done to her or not done to her in the past, being with him was dangerous. She knew that and so did I. 
Charli wouldn't willingly go with him, not after she'd promised me she'd stay safe. 

I clenched my teeth, hearing her words in my mind, her promises...her lies. 

When she refused to wait for me for this trip to Savannah, Charli had promised she'd stay with Deloris. 

According to this text message, she hadn't. 

That's what the words on my screen were telling me. Deloris's message confirmed that Charli had done the one thing I forbade her from doing. She'd put the one person whom I'd entrusted to her care in danger.

She'd willingly sacrificed herself. 

I needed to understand why. 

I needed to speak to her, but I couldn't. 

Since the plane had just left the ground, I couldn't make a call until we were high enough for the Wi-Fi to be activated; however, that didn’t stop my rant. Pounding the tabletop before me with the butt of my fist, a tirade of words spewed forth. The outburst, infused with obscenities, echoed uselessly through the cabin. 

Wisely, Isaac remained quiet, rightfully assuming I'd share more when I was ready. The flight attendant, though, was new. She didn't know me. 

“Mr. Demetri, is everything all right?” she asked, her eyes bigger than dinner plates as she hurried around a wall and moved toward me. With each step she teetered one way and then the next, her body thrown off balance as the plane continued its ascent. 

“No! Nothing is all right. Go sit down before you fall. There’s nothing you can do.”

“Sir,” she said, looking down at the phone still in my hand. “If we’re not yet out of the range of cell towers, we will be soon, but once we have Wi-Fi you'll be able to Face Time.”

I reined in what little self-control still remained. This wasn't my first flight. “I’m aware.”
“However, if you don't want to wait, the plane has a satellite phone. Would you like to use that?”

What? Why didn’t I think of that?

Because I’m too stunned to process. 

“Yes. Get it right away.”

Her knees buckled as she maneuvered toward the cockpit, her hands supporting her one way and then the other. 


I sent the text to Deloris, not caring if it would send or if she would get it. Just pushing the letters gave me something to do. 

As soon as the flight attendant placed the satellite phone in my hand, I began dialing the longer-than-normal string of numbers. With each second that I waited for the connection, my blood pressure rose another notch. The rush coursing through my veins filled my ears with an internal roar, muting the engine’s drone. 


"You have reached—"

Though the plane continued its climb, at the sound of her voice, my stomach took another nosedive. 

Hitting the disconnect button, I called Mrs. Witt. She probably should have been my first call, but I needed to try to reach Charli. I wanted to know that I could. 

Now, I knew that I couldn't. 

As the satellite phone again waited to connect, I reached for my own phone and pushed the app on Charli's tracker. 


My mind reasoned that it wasn't because she was unreachable. She may have gotten into a car, but she wouldn't take off the necklace. There was nothing on the app, because we didn't yet have Wi-Fi access and the cellular service was unavailable. 

As soon as the satellite phone began to ring, Deloris answered, “Lennox we're following her...” 

“What the hell happened? Where is she? Where is that bastard taking her? Why the fuck did she get in his car? Why didn’t you stop her? Did he threaten her?”

“She’s a few hundred yards ahead of us on the street. We’re making our way out of the city. 

According to her tracker, her heart rate is elevated, but otherwise, we believe she's safe. According to the GPS it seems as though we’re headed toward her home.”

“Her home?” I asked incredulously. “No, Deloris, her home is in New York.”

Now, once again, the game has changed. Nox and Charli’s hot sensual encounter has grown into something more but it is threatened with secrets and regrets. Is it their love and intense sexual chemistry that’s pushing them together or something darker, a puppetmaster behind the scenes pulling the strings on their love affair? 

Shadowy villains lurk around each corner and everyone is suspect as Nox’s and Charli's pasts collide with the present and threaten to compel them back to their predestined fates. 

Can deals brokered in the past be negated by something as pure as love and as steamy as the attraction shared by Nox and Charli? Or was it all a deception—starting with that very first meeting?
