Aleatha Romig has a new series. It's called Tales from the Dark Side. Romig explains we should expect each tale to be a dark erotic thriller - each with its own unique story, world and characters. If you have read her Consequences series, you are acquainted with Romig's style of writing. Layers, layers and more layers. Mystery. Clues. Plotline twists. I've come to expect nothing less than a mind-blowing reading experience with each novel written by Aleatha Romig. And I have really been anticipating a fresh, new story from this author!

The debut novel of the Tales from the Dark Side series is titled Insidious. I admit that I was intrigued with the synopsis. One of the most powerful men in Miami, Stewart Harrington, is married to his nemesis, and he doesn't even know it. Stewart is wealthy, demanding and has peculiar requirements which he expects Victoria to satisfy. She plays her role well, submits to his needs, all the while biding her time as he plays into her game. After reading Insidious, I know without a doubt in my mind that the plot should not be spoiled. Insidious is just one of those novels that needs to be experienced!

Here is what I can share. There is so much more to this story than you can possibly imagine! The plot of Insidious unfolds in layers. The writing keeps you guessing, questioning and wanting more information. The writing is also clever and witty, even humorous at times! The entire novel is written in true Aleatha Romig fashion. Early ratings are extremely high. It's really no wonder because Insidious is just a creative and brilliant story! If you can handle reading stories that are dark and edgy, put Insidious down on your list of novels to read. I am giving Insidious one of Smut Book Junkie Book Reviews rare 6-star ratings!

Seriously twisted and mind blowing. As usual, Aleatha Romig delivers greatness! I absolutely LOVED her Consequences series (it's by far the BEST series I've EVER read in that genre). I knew she was going to deliver a much darker story in Insidious but I had no idea just how far she was going to push it. I wish that I could spend one day inside her head so that I could feel what it's like to have such a wicked mind. Truly amazing Aleatha, I can't wait to see what's next!

“Dark desires…Deadly secrets…Devious deceptions…Nothing is exactly as it seems..”

Insidious: proceeding in a gradual, subtle way, but with harmful effects

Insidious is a dark erotic thriller with twists and turns that I will definitely be thinking about when I hit my pillow tonight. Just WOW! I am a bit disappointed that this tale is the last we’ll see of Victoria, Travis, and all of the amazing characters we were introduced to in Insidious since these are all stand-alone, erotic thrillers. That ending definitely has me saying WTF…I WANT MORE!!

To be honest I was really nervous to read this. Not because I don’t enjoy a good erotic thriller every now and then, but because I know the dark emotions that Aleatha Romig can bring out so effortlessly. She definitely did it again with Insidious!

The whole story is a serious mind-f**k! I was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole book.

Victoria is a strong main character that was forced into a life changing situation shortly after her 18th birthday. The incredibly difficult decisions she had to make were gut-wrenching. Not willing to let her siblings suffer and not given much time to think, she made the only decision she thought she had.

From the very beginning Stewart was very blunt with his words but it was something that wouldn’t be fully understood until later.

“As I said, you’re not a whore, but one you agree to this marriage, you will be my whore.”

The way Stewart was able to play with her mind and desires left her feeling very confused. She was understandably scared with the situation she was put in.

All hail Aleatha the master of dark tales.

So let’s all be honest, we have all been dying to see if Aleatha Romig could produce another bone chilling story with characters we love to hate, and hate to love. I have labeled the Consequence series my favorite series EVER and I was terrified to read Insidious for two reasons: I knew this would be her transition novel from fade to black sex scenes to hot and dirty and because in my mind, there was NO WAY she could top Tony and Claire… oh but wait…. she did.

There is a similar beginning to Consequence and at first I felt a tiny glimmer of Fifty Shades, but Insidious quickly unfolds into a unique and one of a kind story. It all begins with a somewhat voluntary contract and ends with a jaw dropping shocker. If you dare think you are wise and try to read the end before you get there, the joke will be on you, it only makes an impact if you read the entire book, so no cheating it’s worth the wait!

Insidious comes with a disclaimer to “read at your own risk” do not take that lightly. Aleatha has a way of messing with your mind; like a haunted house once you enter there is only one way out and once you’ve seen the deception and greed of humanity there is no undoing it.

Insidious will leave you begging more and pondering the end for days to come. I had to read the ending at least five times to process the conclusion.

So once again Aleatha temporarily paralyzed my mind with shock and dirtied up this killer read with some dark and twisted sex. This is must read for all of the consequence series fans, and great for those who do not want to read a series but get the full experience of Aleatha’s books.
