For Bryn Meara, a free trip to the exclusive and ultra-luxe Nightfall hotel and casino in Vegas should’ve been the perfect way to escape the debris of her crumbling career. But waking up from a martini-and-lust-fueled night to find herself married to Caiden Verran, the reclusive billionaire who owns the hotel and most of the city, isn’t the jackpot one would think. It seems her dark and sexy new husband is actual royalty—the fae king of the Night Court—and there’s an entire world beneath the veil of Vegas.

Whether light or shadow, the fae are a far cry from fairy tales, and now they’ve made Bryn a pawn in their dark games for power. And Caiden is the most dangerous of all—an intoxicating cocktail of sin and raw, insatiable hunger. She should run. But every night of passion pulls Bryn deeper into his strange and sinister world, until she’s no longer certain she wants to leave…even if she could.

MY feelings

I saw this on TikTok and was super intrigued. While I was a bit let down, it was still readable.

I was so engrossed in this story when I first started reading it. The pull and chemistry between Bryn and Caiden was so delicious and I couldn’t wait to read more about them and this bond they ended up in. The dom/sub relationship worked so well for them and I craved all the scenes that they were in together.

Everything was going great until the middle of the book. I don’t know what happened, but I started to feel like Bryn deserved better. Yeah Caiden groveled, but so many of his actions could have been different so the conflict wouldn’t have driven such a wedge between them.

Overall, it wasn’t bad but I wish some things would have been done differently. I’m intrigued enough to read the next book that will be released next year.3 Star Rating
