Publisher's Summary

My husband. My monster.

The truth isn’t always what it seems.
Lia doesn’t realize that, but she will. Soon.
I chose this life. This road. This twisted arrangement.
For her, I made a deal with the devil.
For her, I toyed with fate and death.
There’s no going back.
I stole her and like any thief, I won’t return her.
Lia is my addiction. My obsession. My love.
Mine.

This book is part of a trilogy and is not standalone.

perfecto

During each book, I grieved this ending. I didnt want Lia and Adrians story to end. I loved them SO much. But they had the ending of all endings *without a spoiler*
There were so many awesome things happening. So many questions answered, so many smiles from me. The sex was even hotter, the family was getting even happier, I loved that Lia protected Adrian just as much as Adrian protected her. They were a match made in pure heaven. I am still trying to decide if I like Lia's epilogue better than Adrians epilogue. SO. SO. SO. GOOD. I even caught myself smiling at that little "papa" comment. Gahhh.

CONSUMED I MOST DEFINITELY WAS.. 10 ⭐️ EPICNESS

So, as I sit here and look back over the eight volatile years Adrian and Lia have been together, I want to go back to the very beginning and listen to the whole turbulent well-written tale again. It was addictive, all-consuming, intense, suspenseful, passion-filled, hot, heavy and deliciously dark as secrets and revelations slowly fit into place.. or got reshaped into the perfect piece.

The story Rina Kent has delivered is pure genius with its gripping chapters where there were too many secrets, too many assumptions, too many walls, too many explosive feelings and too many verbal daggers thrown meant to harm and hurt. This was a tornado of tempers where emotions, lust, danger, possession, obsession, love, distrust, jealousy, mental fatigue and love gets tossed up, broken and hurled to the floor to shatter and break. And the piecing together was a creative work of genius.

Worth a credit? Absolutely yes.. an epic Trilogy not to be missed and the dual POV narration by Desireé and Jason was 5 star perfection all the way through.

Happy to finish the Trilogy

I began to listen to the story. Jason and Desiree are always amazing. I loved Lia and Adrian. It was nice to see their journey over the years. To be completely honest I did not quite understand the part with Winter. Not quite sure why she was added into the story. I was confused but that part but overall I enjoyed the story. Nice that the trilogy was released in a timely way so did not need to wait too long. To finish the story I did read the rest to get all done today.

The awesomeness that is Rina Kent!

First, narration was GREAT! Jason and Desiree were wonderful as Adrian and Lia! But the story...Consumed was the finale in the Deception Trilogy and it did not disappoint. Loved the evolution of Lia growing into the woman Adrian needed to stand by his side and Adrian’s softening toward Lia. And the heat...it was🔥🔥🔥. I absolutely loved the trilogy, my favorite of Rina’s series. Not to be missed.

A brilliant trilogy!

Consumed By Deception is the gripping conclusion to the brilliant Deception Trilogy. Every time I thought I knew where the storyline was going there’d be an exciting twist or turn that I never saw coming.
Adrian maintained his complex and difficult character traits throughout and I ended up falling for him… hard! Rina Kent is a new to me author and I’m excited to read more of her books.

Ms Kent knows how to wrap up her series

Baring in mind this is the conclusion to a trilogy this is going to be the barest of reviews. What I enjoyed about this was far more chapters in Adrian's POV and how nail bitingly tense it was. We get a tonne of answers to the questions raised in previous books and we also get more of the angst, the spice and the dynamic between Adrian and Lia. If dark mafia books are your gig, then give this trilogy a chance, but be prepared to go on a journey. I volunteered to listen and review a complimentary copy of this. All opinions are my own.

Eye Rolling

I used to love books like this but am struggling with them in the current climate of so much domestic violence and sexual assault in the news.

I really enjoyed the storyline, but the forced sexual violence was too much in my opinion. It also got ridiculous that she constantly got turned on no matter how angry she had been or how unreasonable or sadistic he got. No safe words were offered because she genuinely had no say and no safety.

All up a disappointing result from a promising start. Perhaps a kinder edit would help? A safe word even?

On a positive note, it feels good to know I have grown as reader which is a plus right?
