TITLE: Double Betrayal
SERIES: Surviving
AUTHOR: Ada Frost
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
RELEASE DATE: January 29, 2015

PAGES: Approx. 343

RATING: 5 Stars

Emily’s life had three basic rules, love her family fiercely. Never expect forever and most importantly, shield her heart from pain. At a tender age she had learned love is not forever, sex destroys and if you don’t invest your heart, it can never be broken. She played life safe. 

All it takes though, is one moment, a defining light in the perpetual darkness to bring life into your heart. For Emily, it was a night she would never forget, an ordinary evening of dancing, drinking and if she was in the mood, a brief one night stand. But then he beguiled her. His emerald eyes captivated and enslaved her to him. 

What Emily didn’t anticipate was the mysterious giant to sit beside her and rock her foundations. His dirty mouth and sexy innuendos intrigued her. The green eyed Adonis took her for the ride of her life. One she would never forget. He intertwined himself into her life and captured her soul.

But the illusion of beauty can hide a broken past. And as the lovers fall deeper, the darkness leeches into the light, suffocating and destroying all within its path. Until there is nothing left but betrayal and shattered hearts. 

Due to sexual content, it may not be suitable for readers under the age of 18 years old.

5 Glorious, Amazing Stars!
Funny, Heartbreaking, Angsty and Phenomenal. This Series Just Keeps Getting Better And Better! 

The Review: 
I LOVED this book. I experienced a tidal wave of different emotions while reading it and felt like I’d been put on the spin cycle and I didn’t get off until the very end. There was a lot happening in this book but the author blends the stories and character in perfectly to make one outstanding read that I just couldn't put down!

Double Betrayal is full of spectacular writing, angsty emotions, amazing character building, fantastic plot elements...all surrounding a sweet and steamy romance. Will and Em’s introduction starts out as a burning, passionate fire that never lets up. Even when they were at odd, there was still that intensity between them that made you both want to scream at them to get their heads on straight and weep for them because they were hurting so much. I loved every spectrum of emotion this author pulled from me while reading their story. 

Em’s past is painful and steeped in the worst kind of betrayal. She doesn’t trust. She doesn’t look for love. She just exists, giving the best life she can to the one person who means everything to her. When Will walks into her life, she sees him as another one night stand. A gorgeous one night stand, but a one night stand nonetheless. However, Will sneaks past her defenses and together, they work towards finding something real and something true.

Will’s past isn’t submerged in the happily-ever-after he thought he would get when me married his childhood sweetheart. He’s been betrayed and lied to and hurt and when he sees Em, suddenly he can breath again. But like her, he’s insistent that love isn’t in his future ever again. 

I loved watching these two succumb to their desires, their feelings and eventually their love for one another. The passion was intense, the romance was sweet and the banter back and forth between them was just perfect.

We also have returning characters who I absolutely adore. Johan’s story from book two has finally seen the happiness you ached for him to have as he and Lou live out their HEA. Dom and Eve are building a family and everyone seems to be getting the life they deserve. After so much heartbreak and past pain, it was beautiful to see the friendships and family they’d built within this authors world. I loved all the little pieces we get into their lives. 

The Wrap Up: 
This story was filled to the rim with forward movement. At no time did I ever get bored or bogged down. I teared up, I laughed, I got butterflies. It was hot, it was sweet, it was romantic, it was intense, it was heartbreaking, it was funny, it was EVERYTHING. Name an emotion and I had it during this read. It was perfect! 

Ada Frost has outdone herself. This one will definitely sit at the top of my favorites for 2015! I can’t wait for the next book and Ryan’s story!
