ARC Review: Reverence (Excess #2) by Angelica Chase

30 Apr 2015

Book Title: Reverence
Author: Angelica Chase
Series: The Excess Series #2
Release Date: April 27th, 2015
Genres: Romance: Contemporary/Erotica
I was a prick, but I never hurt anyone that didn’t deserve it.
Well … until Nina.
I was a very smart man who made a very bad decision, but the mistakes I was paying for were not just my own.
My behavior toward her, no matter how unforgivable, had always been about protecting her—from me, from my wife, and from the long line of mistakes I would never be able to rectify.
Nina was finally done with me, and I knew it was for the best. I could finally keep her safe from depraved people like me. I needed her as far removed from the situation as possible. I tried to force myself to be content with her decision to move on … until I found out whom she was moving on with.

My unyielding love for a corrupt man might have cost me the affection of someone worthy.
With Aiden, I had finally discovered a version of myself I could tolerate; then he dropped a one word bomb that ruined my new sense of self. Instead of listening to my voice of reason, I blocked it out, until it became a scream that refused to be ignored.
Now, I would give anything to quiet that voice.

 Gah! This book was everything book one, Opulence, WASN'T for me! I freaking loved it! I was one of the few readers that just didn't connect much with the short first installment. But, that's quickly amended here. 

*** If you've not yet read Opulence, stop now as this review will have plot spoilers for that book.

  Reverence picks up right on the heels of Opulence. Nina and Aiden are just getting started in their budding romance. Romance? I'm not sure I'd call Aiden a romantic in this book. Holy smokes, was he such a Dominant, rock her world, sex god in book one? Yes? I must've forgotten then! Because he was simply delish here! 

  The man was brilliant, beautiful, talented beyond words, and had a cock that would silence a porn star.

Nina has zero issue accepting the fact that she loves sex. Hard, balls-to-the-wall fucking. And Aiden appears to be just the man for the job. This ain't no Harlequin romance, boys and girls!

 What made me totally fall for this book and not-as-much Opulence was the depth of the story. We finally start to understand who Devin is. We really didn't get much information about him in book one, other than that he's a cheat. Well, beware, friends, you'll probably start to turn #TeamDevin here. This book alternates between Nina's POV and Devin's so we FINALLY get his side of their love story. And a love story it is! 


 Angelica Chase has built an erotic tale of one lonely rich woman and two insanely sexy Dominant men. One she loves but can't trust. One she's painfully attracted to and can SEE herself falling in love with. Maybe she can finally move forward from Devin and find happiness in Aiden. He seems to know exactly what she needs sexually and their relationship is growing stronger by the day. Can it be in the cards for them? Or will unfinished business with Devin keep creeping in?

 Yes, you've probably noticed I didn't mention the cliffy at the end of Opulence. I won't. You'll find out soon enough. Reverence is book two in the serial novella Excess Series. Each book releases a few weeks apart. This book also ends in the MOTHER of a cliffy. Gah. I think this one is killing me more than the first. That last scene?

 Cannot wait for the final installment of the Excess Series, Hinderance
