"He owns you. Whatever he tells you to do you do".

One year. No future. A past that won't go away.
Lennox "Nox" Demetri broke his own rule by making a deal. It may not have been directly with the devil, but that doesn't mean Satan himself isn't watching. Was it fate that brought Charli into his life and his bed? What will happen when rules are broken and secrets are revealed?
"New rules."
Alex "Charli" Collins found pleasure with Nox like she'd never known. That was before she knew his last name. Now that Infidelity is involved and the rules have changed, what will result when real life and fantasy collide? 
 Is it really cheating if you're doing it to yourself?
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a sexy, new dominant hero who knows what he wants and a strong-willed heroine who has plans of her own. With classic Aleatha Romig twists, turns, deceptions, and devotions, the depth of this new, epic romantic suspense reaches new levels and will have readers swooning one minute and screaming the next. 
Have you been Aleatha'd?
CUNNING is a full-length novel, over 300 pages, and the second of five books in the INFIDELITY series.
Infidelity - it isn't what you think.


  • This book disgusted me, I couldn’t even finish.

    By iisabellaa
    As someone who has dealt with domestic violence I truly couldn’t believe what I was reading, or that a woman wrote this. Nox is physically abusive and the author thinks giving an insight into what he is thinking (“punishing” Alex for signing with Infidelity) makes it okay because he does care for her but needs to teach her a lesson. Then from Alex’s point of view is being hurt physically and emotionally from what he’s doing and while she’s disgusted/hurt/physically in pain let’s just make her turned on and wanting sex. There are real women in situations where a man is abusive and uses excuses of loving her so much that he NEEDS to show her a lesson so she can learn and be better for herself. The author should be ashamed for glorifying abuse this way. I couldn’t finish the book. I fear for young girls who reads this and thinks this type of toxic relationship is sexy or loving when in reality could get them killed for involving themselves with a man like Nox.
  • Addicted to the books

    I'm so addicted to the book. I found myself reading it at red lights and at work. I can't wait to start book 3, but at this rate I'll be finished with series by Saturday. What will I do without Nox and Alex. The thought saddens me....great book
  • Well if you're into soap operas...

    I always start reading a book with the full intention to love it....I didn't with this one. I felt as if there were so many things happening, so many things coming out of left field that it started to get too crazy for my taste. If you're into exaggerated drama, you're going to love this! Honestly maybe I could've moved past it all if I loved the guy, but I didn't. I tried to, really I did. But there's only so much possessiveness and domineering one can take before it crosses the line of abuse. It didn't! But man was it close. I really felt uncomfortable with how Nox treated Alex once their "agreement" began. It wasn't cute or lovable. It didn't help either that Alex was always so eager to please Nox even after any decent person would've stopped for a minute and evaluated the situation. The writing was fine for an easy read book like this. However I could've done without the excessive changes in points of view. From Charli/Alex to Nox tô even Adelaide. It created a rocky flow to the story. Again, only my opinion but I could've gone without this book.

  • Wow!!

    By Monkelly
    Well I must say, the first book was slow and not enough Umph. But it was just the start to an AWESOME series. I loved the second book, just what I like. It had it all, mystery, unknowns, lots of people and families with unknown motives and history. Oh and don't forget the hot chemistry between Nox and Charli. I love it a little dark. Sometimes I was a little upset with Nox and still am but that just makes it even better. I love Charli's stubbornness but still a little unsure of herself. What will happen next??? And sooooo many lies!!!! If you love dark romance, this is the perfect book for you!

    An intense, extraordinary, enthralling, suspenseful and dark fiction. This novel would keep you reading and wanting more. Just like the other series of Consequences, everything you thought you knew, you didn't. This is a book that would keep you turning the pages. Need more of Nox and Alex's story!!!
