It’s what he said to me across his altar, what he demanded so that I would be pure.
In the moment he blessed me with his virtue, I was no longer the woman I’d once been.
I was Eve.
His bridge to Heaven’s gate.
I failed him because my faith was not strong enough.
He punished me for not giving in.
Resisting temptation is never easy.
Not when his hands, his teeth, his heat and hunger were the greatest of my sins.
~ Maria’s Review ~
Illusions of Evil is Lily White’s newest twisted, mindf***. As always, author Lily White draws me in like a moth to a flame. I couldn’t look away. She captivated me from start to finish. It is dark, gritty with quite a few unexpected twists that had me like “oh, sh**”.
The characters were so intriguing. The more I got to know them, the more I wanted to know. I couldn’t wrap my head around the why, making me like Jacob and Sedra, caught in Elijah’s web. Honestly, I’m still not sure why. It is like a cat and mouse game, only not all of the characters know the rules or that their even playing this warped game. And the stakes are high. Makes for some very interesting reading. I was like “OMG”, “why?!” and the occasional “WTF”.
The push/pull between the hero and heroine is intense. The desire and want is palpable. Author Lily White gives temptation and sin a new meaning. It is a battle between good and evil, right and wrong, between characters and oneself. They say good will triumph over evil, but how much can one take before giving up and giving in? It is a battle of wills.
I don’t want to get into the story because I don’t want to give things away and spoil it. Suffice it to say, it was not what I was expecting. You’d think I’d know that because I read Lily White’s work. She is never predictable. So, while it wasn’t what I thought, it was better. Much more than a dark romance involving breaking of vows, which is what I was expecting.
Author Lily White builds the tension and plays with your mind through her characters. It all leads back to one character, who is like the puppet master. But that ending?! No way!!! I need MORE!! Another fantastic book by Lily White. It is disturbing and deals with sensitive subjects, so be warned. This is a dark romance erotic thriller.
