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?

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.”

“I have more nerve than that. I want to fuck you, and I have half a mind to strip you right now, flip you on your stomach, and punish you until you scream. So, answer my question. Has he touched you?”

“You wouldn’t dare!” Heat rushed through me at his threat. Because I was fucked up. Because I wanted him to want me. Because he was all I could think about—his face, his body, his scent, his twisted mind.

“Wouldn’t I?” He got to his knees and pulled me up before throwing me over his shoulder.

“What the fuck are you doing?” I beat at his back as he got to his feet and headed away from the house and toward the oaks that lined the driveway.

He ran his hand up my thigh and pressed hard against my pussy. “Hot and wet, just like I thought.”

“Put me down.”

“I will.” He strode into the shade of the oaks and pushed me up against one of them. The oak’s wide trunk hid us from the house.

I pressed my palm against his chest. “I’m not—”

He kissed me, pinning me between his chest and the tree. His hands roved me, and before long, he had one up my shirt, palming my breast through my bra. I dug my nails into his chest, but he only leaned in harder, as if he wanted my violence.

He ripped up my bra, exposing both breasts, and groaned into my mouth as he squeezed them. My knees went weak at his touch. Every thought of anger or hatred burned away as he consumed me as surely as fire does black powder. Breaking our kiss, he whipped me around to face the tree.

“Pull your pants down or I’ll do it myself.”

I glanced over my shoulder as he unfastened his belt. He ripped the elastic from my hair and tossed it aside.

“Do it, Stella.” He growled and slapped my ass.

I fumbled with my button and unzipped my pants. He did the rest, ripping them down my legs to my knees.

About Celia Aaron

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.
