And this is why Lily White is the queen of dark and twisted! Oh my! This story!! Not at all what I was expecting. There isn’t much that can be said without spoiling the story. The blurb doesn’t even tell you the half of it, and for good reason. The twists and turns will have your head spinning and leave you deeply anticipating the second book! I need it now! I have high hopes for certain characters and can’t wait to see how this could possible play out and how it’s all going to fit in only one more book! Woah! I’m still anxious from this story.
Mind games, delusions, mistrusts, and deception at its finest, Illusions of Evil will leave you begging for more!
I loved the idea of the Catholic priest going rogue and embracing his sinful nature once again!
Not so much
This story was really erotica fiction (not romance) with a quick pace, but the damsel-in-distress theme was too heavily played up for me, as was the "you're a whore" banter that was constantly vocalized by the leader of manwhores himself, Elijah. I'd hoped to add Elijah to my love-to-hate-villains list, but by the end of this book, I found that I didn't care much for him or any of the other characters. Jacob was okay, but I wasn't wowed by him or some of his scaredy cat ways. It also seemed like most of the side characters were planted without real purpose and were easily disposable.
► Ultimately, this story didn't grab me as passionately as some of this author's other stories and I craved more characterization. There were some parts that didn't quite add up and nagged at me, but hopefully those questions will be addressed in the next book to be released.
-Complimentary copy generously provided by author.
As far as the plot goes - it was very slow moving and hard to put together until pretty far into the read. It was still unclear what Elijah's underlying motivation was behind even starting the cult (aside from the power trip). This take on cults was politically different from the usual trope used in erotic fiction, but the convention that all cult leaders just want to have sex with all the virgins in the cult firmly grounded this read in the familiar. I will read the next one and hope that the pace picks up and that someone - anyone at this point - becomes a sympathetic character.
While I had sympathy for Sedra/Eve, I was a bit confused by her behavior. I guess I couldn’t understand how she was brainwashed so easily. She didn’t seem so susceptible in the beginning. Elijah definitely ruled this story. He was the beginning and the end and a part of me couldn’t help but see everything through his eyes and try to understand. Between him and Jacob, I wasn’t sure who to root for because both had a black hole growing exponentially within them. I honestly don’t even know how I feel about this story. It’s definitely not over and I’m curious to see if there will be any light in part two,
Fear The Wicked.

I love a book which has a prologue that pulls you, the reader, in to read more. A good prologue makes you start to question. What is happening?Read more
