Synopsis

The Acquisition has ruled my life, ruled my every waking moment since Sinclair Vinemont first showed up at my house offering an infernal bargain to save my father’s life. Now I know the stakes. The charade is at an end, and Sinclair has far more to lose than I ever did. But this knowledge hasn’t strengthened me. Instead, each revelation breaks me down until nothing is left but my fight and my rage. As I struggle to survive, only one question remains. How far will I go to save those I love and burn the Acquisition to the ground?

I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

My Review

Sovereign is book three in the Acquisition Series by Author Celia Aaron. It is a dark romance novel.

“I was caught in the web, surrounded by three deadly spiders, and there was nowhere else I’d rather be.”

In book two, Sin made the decision to leave Stella, forcing her to be looked after by Lucius. We enter into this final book, Sovereign, where we once again meet our heroes and heroine. Stella has spent two months being trained by Dmitri, in anticipation of the upcoming Acquisition trials. We are anxious and our hearts are pounding as we come to what will be the ending of the series and so many other unknowns.

“You’ve always been mine, long before any of this. And I will always have what’s mine.”

Sucked. Back. In. I have been waiting with arms open for Sovereign, the conclusion of this series. Every book has been so intense and garnered extreme emotional states. So, it was with anticipation, laced with some anxiety and fear, that I cracked open the pages. It took 2.2 seconds for the vacuum of the Acquisition world to come on and tug me back into this story. Stella continued to be the strong and capable heroine I’d grown to admire. She had a fierce and level-headed determination that made her one bad-to-the-bone female. Sin, Lucius, and Teddy also returned, bringing with them a brewing storm propelled by revenge and hate. The level of emotional and mental fortitude displayed by the characters was unlike anything I’d seen.

“The rules. It’s what makes us compete. it turns us against ourselves until the strongest comes out on top.”

Less than one-fifth of the way into the book, I was in a strangle-hold. I really thought that the first two books had exposed all the possible unpleasantries that were a byproduct of the Acquisition trials. But, oh no, there was so much more! When the moment of the trial finally arrived, I was a mass of nerves. Oh my gosh! The wicked mastermind of the games was one sick cat! I read the words in disbelief. It was just unfathomable. I felt as if I had ring-side seat, right there, gaping and watching in horror as fates were determined and lives mindlessly changed. But I couldn’t turn away, the words being branded into my mind, the actions seared into my subconscious. I wanted to scream, hit something, shut my eyes tight, and then scream some more, as I was dangled by a thin thread over the precipice of hell, waiting for the end in sight.

“…instead of retribution, she’d granted me love. And through that love, I was damned.”

I don’t want to leave out the romance side of Sovereign, because when those encounters occurred, they were scorching hot! The chemistry that had been evident in previous books was now a focused flame, that brought much desired light and balance.

This final book and entire series BLEW MY MIND! None of the books should be read as a standalone, and must be read in order. If you liked the idea of the Hunger Games, but would enjoy a more adult-oriented version with a great ending, this is an escape that should not be missed.

“This is all I could think about. Every day. Every night. Every time I closed my eyes. You.”

Excerpt

When I relaxed back onto the bed, he crawled on top of me and ran his fingers around my lips. I sucked them, licking myself off him before he kissed me and shared the taste. He rested his weight on his elbows, careful not to crush me. I didn’t want careful or tentative. I wanted Sin.

“Fuck me.” I yanked on his hair for good measure as he kissed to my neck.

“Stella, I’m warning you.”

I pulled harder until he met my eyes. “Don’t warn me. Fuck me.”

He tangled a hand in my hair and pulled until I had to arch my back. “Is this what you want?”

“Yes.”

He ran his lips down my throat and bit. “This?”

“Yes.”

He thrust his hips against me. “This?”

“Yes, please.”

He stood and removed his belt, tossing it on the bed next to me. Then he freed his cock and crawled back on top of me. When his tip hit my clit, I moaned and tried to kiss him. He pulled away and grabbed his belt.

“Hands together, over your head.”

I arched an eyebrow. “No.”

“Stella.” His voice was gravel as he rested his weight on me and wrenched my hands above my head. He looped the belt around my wrist and pulled tight, then kept the slack in his hand. He kissed me hard, the way I remembered—the way I wanted.

I spread my legs as wide as possible, and he slid his tip down to my entrance.

He blinked and hesitated. “Am I hurting you?”

“Not enough,” I breathed.

“Fuck, you were made for me.”

Hi, I'm Celia. Nice to meet you. Can you keep a secret?

I write smut. Gritty, dirty, delicious smut. This is a secret we can share. I'll do the writing. You do the reading. We have to keep our relationship quiet because I have a highly respectable day job. At night, I become markedly less respectable, as you will see.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my stories. And remember, it's our secret.
