ARC provided for an unbiased review.

Bethany Voight lived a normal life to everyone’s eyes, but deep down inside she craved darkness that can’t be fulfilled by just anybody. Damir Ravnikar’s thirst for revenge knew no boundaries. Harboring similar depravity, he took whatever he wanted like he owned it and she happened to be just the tool he needed. Together, they embarked on a journey of lust and vengeance, but they must decide what they valued the most or risk destroying everything they’ve worked for.

Right from book 1, Damir became my favorite in this series. So coming into this book, I had a certain hope and expectations. I’m thrilled the author did justice to his story.

“Do this often then? Kidnapping?”
“Jealous of all the girls who came before, princesa?”

Damir was everything I love in my hero. Dark, depraved and unapologetic, but with a weakness that made him human. He easily became my favorite hero by the author. Bethany was his perfect match. I loved her sass and quirks with just enough innocence.

I loved how the story took readers on a journey to various fabulous locations. The storyline was exciting with some actions and balanced with tender moments – by Damir’s standard at least lol! Of course, the scorching kinky sexy times wrapped it all up pleasurably.

I scream and struggle, but it’s useless. No one’s coming to save me.

Lap of Luxury is a story of retribution and closure. It would appeal to readers who enjoy sexy dark romance with a dash of sweetness.

Note: Throughout the book, I was hoping a certain ponytailed character to “join in the fun”, but alas, it’s not that kind of book haha!

Final Verdict:

This review is also available on Goodreads.
