Erotic Contemporary Romance – 18+ for descriptive love scenes and language.
Sparks Fly … Lines Blur… and Hearts Break
Alexander Avery is rich, powerful and the sexiest man Angeline Hemming has ever laid eyes on: a man like every woman dreams about. Angel is not immune to his sensual and ruthless pursuit, and Alex is intoxicated by the beautiful doctor; overwhelmed with desire like he’s never known.
As the profiling case Angel is working on gets more and more dangerous, Alex finds himself filled with unfamiliar panic and emotional turmoil; his need to protect her goes against Angel’s adamant insistence that she doesn’t need his help. He isn’t a man to sit on the sidelines when the woman he’s obsessed with is threatened, so he takes control to protect her without telling her of his plans.
Angel’s fortitude is shaken when her stalker invades not only her personal life but also those close to her… even when that someone is powerful and seemingly untouchable. Professional ethics insist she keep the details or her work away from her lover, even as their newfound closeness has her yearning to confide in him. But, as Angel’s quest to protect her heart from Alex’s undeniable pull equals her need to keep him out of a dangerous situation, circumstances dictate a huge decision; which could have detrimental, and irreversible consequences for them both.
When danger threatens and jealousy reaches the boiling point, lies will be told and secrets kept… Even with the best intentions and the most undeniable connection … the deepest of loves will be tested.
MY RATING: 5 stars
“In this man’s arms, she found solace and ecstasy like she’d never known. In this man’s arms, she wanted to give like she never had before.”
Confessions After Dark, book 2 in the After Dark series, is as addictive as the first one was. Alex and Angel’s story gets more intense, more passionate and a whole lot more suspensful…
In the first book we met Angel and Alex as two individuals who wroke havoc in each other’s lives. Now they have to deal with the feelings they are nurturing for one another as well as with people that threaten not only their relationship but also their lives… What are you ready to do when the person you love is put in jeopardy?
” ‘Then you trust me?’ he asked softly.
‘With everything I have,’ she breathed.
‘Then I want to make love to you. Slow, languid love. I never want this to end.'”
Angel is the strong woman we got to know in Angel After Dark, and she sticks to her ideals, no matter the cost — she doesn’t give up on a cause even when it could endanger her life. I love her determination and also her willingness to keep her word, no matter what.
Alex is the ultimate alpha male, one you can’t resist to! He wants to protect the woman he has feelings for at all costs, and he doesn’t want to give up on her, even when the path gets rough, especially because of what she chooses to do…
“I want you. Every day until forever.”
This second instalment is full of suspense that kept me on my toes. There’re also a lot passionate moments between the characters that get even more intense because of the situation they find themselves thrown into and the choices they make…Let me say that the intrigue, mystery and passion in this book are all skyrocketed to the highest level possible.
I can’t wait for Promises After Dark, because I have still so many questions and I can’t wait to find out the answers! Alex and Angel’s story gets you hooked from page one.

WHERE TO PURCHASE CONFESSIONS AFTER DARK:
If you haven’t read the first book in the series, Angel After Dark (you can find my review here), here’s the synopsis and purchase links:
ANGEL AFTER DARK (After Dark #1)
Dr. Angeline Hemming is a beautiful, sassy, no-nonsense type of girl who has risen from a difficult past to become one of Chicago’s most successful and respected criminal profilers. In exchange for free commercials to promote her favorite charitable causes, Angel answers calls and gives relationship advice on a Friday night radio program.
Alexander Avery is a gorgeous and successful corporate genius who doesn’t believe in love. When his girlfriend-of-convenience calls into Angel’s program, he is furious with the show’s host who doles out (what he considers) blind advice, without knowing all the facts… and he decides to give her a piece of his mind, and his side of the story!
When Angel informs Alex he’s the one in need of a much-deserved lesson, all hell breaks loose as these two type-A personalities battle it out for control over minds and hearts, and yes, in bed. Not only are they fighting each other at every turn, but they are also struggling to uphold the convictions they each live by.
It’s unclear who is stronger, but both must discover that to get what they desperately want, they may have to give a little… or a lot.
