My Review

As Celia and Edward’s story has continued, readers have been privy to their initial objectives and to the plans they were exacting to reach their individual goals, but in book three, after both characters had seemed to have reached their breaking point with their feelings for each other, their pasts, and respective scars, things are moving forward in a way that neither of them believed possible, which means that those who have hurt or betrayed them are about to reap what they sowed, and no one is safe from the wrath of Edward and Celia Fasbender.

For two books, I’ve questioned Edward’s motives, and rightly so, because he had his own agenda when it came to what he wanted from his marriage, but his plan has changed, and that’s because Celia surprised him at almost every turn and had proven herself to be a worthy opponent and because of everything that occurred on the island, their relationship, their partnership has changed, which also changes the game and who they plan to bring to their knees, together.

Since the beginning of this Slay Quartet, I have been most interested in Celia’s evolution as a heroine. I’ve been more than upfront with my disdain for her, so the fact that Laurelin Paige made me feel for Celia’s circumstances and made me want her to get the ending she deserves is saying something.

From enemy to savior?

This is an intriguing concept, but it’s also one that’s difficult to completely buy into because there always seems to be an ulterior motive or ten for any of Celia and Edward’s actions, so heading into the final book in the quartet will truly illustrate just how far these two characters have come, both individually and as a married couple who truly love one another.

4 Poison Apples


Inside the windowed room, I set one of the glasses on a table next to the loveseat then dimmed the overhead before taking the other glass to the armchair across from it. The string of lights that had been put up outside for the party were still lit, creating a romantic mood. Not exactly what I was going for, but it would do. In my experience, the darker setting made confessions easier.

I stretched my neck, easing the knots there as I looked out over the yard. The day had been busy and full, and the party had been, by all accounts, successful, but I’d spent the entire time preoccupied with Edward. Even when entertaining strangers or running around trying to find Ilsa to tell her we were out of toilet paper, I’d been aware of my husband. He was a magnetic force, always pulling my thoughts and my body in his direction. Like gravity holding me in his orbit.

I’d never felt that way about anyone before. Not just that in love but also that attached. I was still reeling from the newness of it, eighteen months after we’d wed.

I was also still adjusting to the way he affected me. How he’d brought me peace yet could stir up levels of jealousy within me that I’d never thought possible. His trip to the garden with Marion was innocent—it had to be considering the way he grinned at me when he’d returned. The devil himself wouldn’t flaunt his discretions so openly.

Would he?

About the Author

With millions of books sold worldwide, Laurelin Paige is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling Author. She is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however.

When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or Letterkenny, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.
