She thought she could save those she loved.
He thought he could save her.
They'll both learn the truth.

No one is safe, and no alliance is above suspicion in the much-anticipated finale to this hot romantic-suspense saga. Our heroine has survived betrayal, cunning, deception, and entrapment…what will happen when she’s faced with fidelity? 

Infidelity, it isn't what you think.

With classic twists, turns, deceptions, and devotions, this new, epic romantic suspense will have readers swooning one minute and screaming the next. 

Have you been Aleatha'd?

FIDELITY is the fifth and FINAL of five full-length novels in the INFIDELITY series. 

*This series does not condone nor does it advocate cheating.


FIDELITY is the fifth (and final) full-length novel in the INFIDELITY series. Here is the complete list of the books in the series: BETRAYAL, CUNNING, DECEPTION, ENTRAPMENT, and FIDELITY. All on sale now!

Told from the multiple POV’s of: Alexandria/Charli Collins, Lennox “Nox” Demetri, Adalaide Montague Fitzgerald, and Oren Demetri

I have been Aleatha’d…again and I loved every minute of it! Aleatha Romig has surpassed ALL my hopes and dreams when it comes to this series. Honestly, I couldn’t of fathomed where she was going to take this “dog and pony show” (Alex’s words, not mine) and after completing the fifth and final novel, I am utterly BLOWN AWAY by her meticulousness and storytelling. All the webs were unraveled. There was no rock unturned. Everything fit seamlessly together. To spend a day in Aleatha’s mind…man, I don’t know if I’d be able to decipher the code of INFIDELTY. She is the mastermind with the blueprint and she executed it with perfect precision. The way the Montague’s, Fitzgerald’s, Demetiri’s and Spencer’s worlds collided at the end of this series was mind-boggling and a complete adrenaline rush. No joke, my heartrate sped up in mere pages after starting FIDELITY…I was thrown right back into this deceptive world for better or worse *wink*.

Just like the other novels in the series, Aleatha has the ability to completely block out any spare thinking capability. The completion of this series gave no leeway to theory building…I was so utterly engrossed in the story and its characters, that I had no ability to form my own theories and hypothesis at any point. I was strictly living out the character’s lives through their chapters and POV’s. It was as if I were a fly on the wall watching these twists and turns occur and I could only go along with the motion. Aleatha achieved this with not only her perfectly engineered world and storyline, but with her “mini cliffy’s” (as I like to call them). At the end of each chapter, it was as if the reader was put on a “commercial break”. With the multiple POV’s, you would end on one character and possible jump to another. Sometimes you’d have to read several POV’s/chapters to get back to that particular “mini cliffy”. This strategy left you glued to the pages. It was just brilliant how Aleatha did that. I have NEVER read another novel like this one, written in this type of style. I absolutely LOVED it. It kept me craving more.

In this high stakes game between love and duty, Alex has withstood betrayal, cunning, deception, and entrapment…and all that is coming to a head in FIDELITY. What will happen when she’s faced with the other side of the coin, fidelity? I am not willing to give my summary of this final novel because I fear I will give spoilers. Just trust me, BELIEVE me, when I tell you that this is the best book in the series and Aleatha will NOT leave you unsatisfied. Batman will come to his Princess’ rescue…but you’ll have to read to find out how it all pans out.

Between all the twists, deceptions, revelations, planning, and sabotaging there was finally happiness at the end of the dark tunnel. I plain and simply LOVED this series! The characters were ridiculously multi-faceted and I mean that in best of way possible. The characters put new meaning to “nothing is as it seems”. You truly don’t know what you’re getting from each character until the very last page.

If you’re looking for a compelling story that will grip you from the beginning and leave you questioning EVERY person, EVERY moment, THIS is the series for you. I know I will go back one and read it again with fresh and knowing eyes trying to dissect it for its entirety.

With her hand on my chest, Charli said, "Whether you like to admit or not, you are Prince Charming." As Charli's breathing began to even, I whispered, "No, I'm not Prince Charming. I'm Batman." 

10 stars!

xoxo, Vivian 💋

ROOKE (A Bleeding Hearts Book Club) by Callie Hart
Release date: Feb 21, 2017
Full length Novel with complete ending. 
No pre-order links at this time

Watchmaker. Car thief. Heartbreaker extraordinaire.
Rooke Blackheath has spent enough time in juvie to know that he really doesn’t want to go to jail. The food sucks, the clothes itch, and there are absolutely no women in sight. Well…none he wants to fuck, anyway.
He should probably stop boosting cars, but the money is stellar and the high is out of this world. And why should he turn his back on something that sets his soul on fire anyway?
The answer to that question comes in an unexpected form: a petite five-foot-three firecracker named Sorcha, who refuses to give him the time of day no matter how thick he lays on the charm.
Rooke’s not easily deterred, though. Just like the watches he builds from scratch, Rooke knows all too well how women tick. Women are a game to him. A game he always wins.
Sorcha doesn’t stand a chance.
Sorcha Connor’s life has been permanently derailed since her son died five years ago. You wouldn’t know it to look at her, of course. She has a great job, a beautiful house, and caring friends. Every week, she hosts a book club featuring the sexiest, most romantic stories on the planet, and every week she falls for a new fictional knight in shining armor.
Fictional men are perfect, though. They don’t hurt you. They don’t break your heart. They don’t cheat on you after your child dies, and they rarely ever leave the toilet seat up.
When Rooke Blackheath shows up at Sorcha’s workplace, it’s clear he’s nothing like the men who grace the pages of Sorcha's favorite books. Dangerous, arrogant, sharp-tongued and sarcastic, Rooke’s not the kind of guy she needs in her life. Not to mention the fact that he’s eleven years her junior.
They don’t live in different worlds. As far as Sorcha is concerned, Rooke lives in a different galaxy altogether. She’d like to keep it that way, but fate appears to have other plans.
When Cinderella lost her shoe, Prince Charming showed up at her door.
When Sorcha Connor loses her book, an entirely different kind of rogue comes a-knocking.
