The twisted and intriguing storytelling that you loved in Consequences and Infidelity is coming back at you with an all-new alpha anti-hero in the dark romance series Web of Sin, by New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.
I’m Sterling Sparrow. You’ve no doubt heard my name or read it on the top of tall buildings. There’s more to my business—my realm—than what is seen aboveground.
Within the underbelly of one of America’s largest cities lives a world where a man’s word is either his most valuable tool or his most respected weapon. When my father ruled that world and that city, he promised me someone who would one day make my reign complete.
Since that day, long ago, Araneae McCrie has been mine.
She just didn’t know.
My father is now gone.
The city and the underbelly are now mine.
The time has come for me to collect who was promised to me, to shred her life of secrets and make her who she’s always been—mine.
Have you been Aleatha’d?
*Secrets is book one of the Web of Sin trilogy.

*** 3 Star Review ***
My thoughts on this book are all over the place. Overall, I really enjoyed this book, and I cannot wait for the next two books. I just felt a little... unfulfilled with this book, being it's book one. I have come to expect a lot more of a some things in the start of a series with this author. I am hoping that the next two books are jam packed with twists and turns that will leave my jaw hanging.
I am not sure where to go with this review. I did not like Araneae's character at all. She is weak. I am not a fan of weak characters. I am holding out final judgement on her until I read the rest of this series. I am curious to see where my thoughts go from this book to the third book when it comes to her. This author has a knack for changing your mind from one book to the next.
The development in this book was way too fast for me. I know things may not be what they seem, but I feel like I know too much already. I was given too much too fast. And things with these characters moved way too fast. Their building attraction was too fast and cliche' for me. I will admit, I found myself rolling my eyes. Some of Sterling's character were a bit much so fast. His actions made his character unbelievable for me.
I am left with many questions I know I will eventually get answers to. I did see that ending coming. I may not have known how, but I knew part way through the book that it would end with the exact meeting. Maybe I have read too many of this author's books (impossible), maybe I read too many books in this genre (again impossible), no matter the case, it didn't shock me.
Even though this book wasn't what I had hoped it would be, I did devour it. It is good. It has me anticipating the next two books. If this happens to be your first rodeo with this author, you are in for a real treat, that is for sure!
