Publisher's Summary

One week. No future. No past. No more.

Alexandria Collins has one week to live carefree - no ghosts of her past or pressures of her future haunting her. Reinventing herself as "Charli", she is knocked off her feet by a sexy, mysterious man who brings her pleasure like she never imagined. With her heart at stake, she forgets that decisions made in the dark of night reappear in the bright light of day.

"Some of my tastes are unique. They aren't for everyone. I understand that."

Lennox "Nox" Demetri is wealthy, confident, and decisive - he knows what he wants. From the first time he sees Charli at an exclusive resort, he knows he wants her. Although he is usually the one to make the rules, together they agree on one: one week. No more.

When betrayal comes from those closest to Alexandria, she must decide how far she is willing to go to survive. Choices are not always easy, especially when they involve the heart, body, and soul. After all, Infidelity is a business, and some rules are meant to be broken.

"Is it really cheating if you're doing it to yourself?"

    "AR IS A MAESTRO AT COMPLEX COMPELLING STORYTELLING"

    After listening to this brilliant, addictive and awesome first book in AR's new series I couldn't wait and went straight into book 2 thinking this is a Duet but it's a 5 part series that will stretch all year I'm sure, and maybe even beyond, so be warned because they both end in a nasty cliffhanger. Also, book 2 becomes so multi-layered as to stories, sub plots, then and now time frames and different POV's, that I may wait until all books are available.... oh who am I kidding - I bet I'll be so desperate to hear more from this very deep, dark and gripping series.

    Alexandria (Alex) is from a well know wealthy Savannah family who are treated like royalty by many but Alex is haunted by her past and very resentful at being controlled and manipulated by her evil Stepfather (who, it's hinted, may have abused her too). Her Mother is no better - she was totally controlled by her own Father and then her husband and knows only how to be a good dutiful Southern wife who looks the other way while her husband cheats. Alex had left it all behind four years ago and has just graduated from Stanford and she's all set to go to Columbia Law School to become an Attorney. She, and her best friend, go on holiday to Del Mar.... where she will meet her destiny - Nox who is handsome, sexy, charismatic, mysterious and oozes the Alpha vibe.

    Nox and Alex are instantly drawn to each other - their chemistry is radioactive and they agree, after a shaky start, to a one week affair with no strings, no expectations of more and absolutely no personal details. It takes a couple of days for them to just get to know one another but then, after that time, both were ready to take things to the next level.... turning the dial up with passion, heated kisses and lots and lots of hot sex. However, as they spend time together they grow closer and neither one really wanted to say goodbye..... but still they did.

    Alex is called home after Del Mar unaware of the web of lies, tricks, manipulation and a life changing ultimatum that she's about to walk into.... it's unbelievable how low and loathsome her Stepfather is being and the BETRAYAL is devilish. But Alex has other plans.... plans that will once again bring her face to face with Nox - however the man she easily fell in love with in Del Mar is a very different person second time round.... and the rules have changed.

    This was a great listen with colorful descriptions, it's mesmerizing, captivating and so addictive that I just didn't want to stop anywhere along Alex and Nox's various encounters and I was riveted to see what nasty surprises Alex's family would try to entrap her with next. Alex is a strong, motivated and determined character caught in a precarious situation unwilling to throw her dreams away so she tries to get out of it by joining a secret Club called Infidelity..... but this is when her whole world changes.... and the mysterious Nox comes back into her life. An assortment of secondary characters including a very annoying and dissatisfied ex and a fun loving BFF. Told in varying past/present chapters from Alex's POV except one chapter at the end from Nox's POV and the narration was great.

    Worth a credit? Oh YES - this founding first stepping stone in the series lines up the Board and Players in Aleatha Romig's cleverly orchestrated strategic game where each move has consequences, heartache, dilemmas, losses and gains.... but who will ultimately win - and what will the cost be? I would give this 10 stars if I could.

    "5 Sexy, Secretive Stars!"
    Where does Betrayal rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of my favorites. I enjoyed this story and the audiobook was well done.


    What other book might you compare Betrayal to and why?

    This was one of the first romantic-suspense type audiobooks I've listened to so I don't have a good feel for comparison, but I did enjoy this one.


    Have you listened to any of Samantha Prescott and Brian Pallino ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first time listening to these two narrators.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, if I could have, I would have! This storyline is totally captivating and would be an easy listen if I had the time.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story and fun audiobook to listen to!

    "Intriguing"

    Good narrators but they do sound too old to be in their 20's. The story was refreshingly different. Excited to listen to book 2.

    "Voice"

    she sounds as if she was an older woman. It would have been better for the voice to sound younger than the voice used.

    "Good ready for next book!"

    Good story line, hate to say it but the narrator for Alex sounds much older. I had to keep remembering the age of the character. Along with hard to sometimes get past the southern draw she tried too hard to portray. You may want to read the book instead. All that said I'm still buying the next book after writing this review

    "The premise of the story is interesting."

    This is my first Aleatha Romig experience and am a bit torn. the overall premise is intriguing but the pace of the story was too slow for me. Too much back and forward in between present and past just felt that stoped the action from being thrust forward. It wasn't until the last 2 hours that I felt engaged with the story. The narration was good, only keeping in mind that the male narrator only has 1 chapter near the end.

    "One week..."
    What made the experience of listening to Betrayal the most enjoyable?

    Samantha Prescott of course, she did a great job with the various characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Alex, she is strong and determined. While it may seem like she caves when it comes to her family she really is just biding her time.


    Any additional comments?

    "Charli" away on vacation with her friend meets "Nox", they are instantly attracted to each other, and they agree to one week...no last names no past. Charli has high expectations set by her very wealthy, very manipulative family. After her vacation she has plans to start working toward her goals of becoming a lawyer but somehow is sucked back into the family she's trying to escape.

    This is told in mostly in Charli's (Alex, Alexandria's) POV. We get chapters in the past and the present, because of this it did take me a while to really get into the story. Once it really gets going though you'll be left wanting more. I will say if you decide to go on Nox and Charli's journey be prepared for a commitment as this is a 5 part story.

    "Lots of twists and turns!"

    Thank heavens this series is very different to Consequences. That was just too much to bear. This is an exciting, tense book that keeps you nervous and anxious for more.

    Brief synopsis: our heroine Alex/Charli/Alexandria is desperately fighting the privileged but soulless future as the heir to one of America's 'Royal' Southern families. She loathes the customs, misogyny and emptiness of a future plotted out for her since her birth.

    Then she meets Lennox. He offers wildness and unpredictability and she gratefully falls into a week of freedom and hedonism completely out of character for her, kind of a last hurrah before going to graduate school and 'adult' life.

    I felt the familiar rage toward the men in her family I felt when reading Consequences . They have an impregnable sense of entitlement and arrogance. Their behaviour goes well beyond highhandedness: there is an almost Kafkaesque quality to the complete impotence and powerlessness the women endure.

    It's a great read with so many twists and turns you can't predict the plot at all. Thoroughly enjoyed it! Can't wait to get the next book.

    The narrator is great - perfect for this book.

    "Betrayal by alethea Romig"

    Wow what a great listen I had never heard of this author until three days ago I was browsing Audible for a new book the third book came up in my recommendations I searched for the first book and read some reviews and thought I would get the book as well as the narration am I glad I did this book has you laughing one minute shouting at it the next as it takes you through a rollercoaster of emotions .i really did not expect such a,good story line as well as good characters it is well narrated really good story that is very well written with lots of twists and turns I finished this book in two sittings. I am now getting the whole Set especially because it leaves you on a cliff hanger so you have to download the next book .
