When tragedy strikes Aja Lawson, she believes her life has forever lost its luster. Indifferent to everything but the unrelenting and gnawing misery inside of her, she scrapes up the shards of the shiny girl she used to be and tries to somehow keep moving forward. But in the shadows, forces are gathering like tumbleweed to disrupt her life: forces, or more concisely, men.
One man is bent on Aja’s destruction; two others want to possess her, but all three have one thing in common: they are thoroughly, mind-and-body obsessed with Aja.
Oblivion is the high-stakes game where winner takes all. Aja Lawson is the ultimate prized possession.
Review by Lorena
This is the first book I read from Ms. Astor and I have to say that I am NOT disappointed in the least.
This book had me captivated from beginning to end, I highly recommend this book!
The whole mysteriousness that this book had completely had my sole attention and I was unable to find myself putting the device down. I just had to keep going because I needed to unravel all that was happening and why it was happening.
Aja is happily married until she's not anymore.
Nicholas Cain is a very powerful, rich man who happens to have been friends with Aja's husband and for some reason he found himself wanting this woman and he would find a way in getting her. But his first priority with Aja is to keep her safe and protected from the evils wondering the streets that want to cause her harm.
Aja has no idea what is going on, she's completely oblivious but finds herself in a bind and has to find a way to get out of it so she signs up with a private company to be a slave and although she's not happy about it, she finds herself that she is unable to find another solution to her dilemma.
When she finally meets the man she is to be a salve to, she is enraged because she never expected this stunning, beautiful man to have gone out of his way to pay her debt and make her his slave. But as time passes she finds that her hatred for this man is starting to turn into something else (oh-oh)!
This book was just fascinating to me and I absolutely loved the storyline. It's one of those books that will keep you thinking for days and wondering the what if's. It's sad that Aja had to go through what she did and the heartache she endured because of evil people out in the world.
I'm very much looking forward to the next installment!
5 amazing stars!
