We recently inhaled this series in one go! We couldn’t put it down.
This is a SPOILER FREE REVIEW for the COMPLETE EXCESS SERIES and as such, we’ve decided to only put the Synopsis for the first book, OPULENCE in this post as we don’t want to chance you seeing a spoiler in further synopsis.

“Your misery makes you beautiful.”
We were lucky; we read this trilogy in one hit so avoided the waiting after a couple of cliffies. This story does not do what it says on the proverbial tin. It had twist, turns and a few errr wtf moments. It was erotic suspense with various levels of kink. The covers drew us in and the synopsis sounded promising so we jumped straight into the unknown.
‘And I was once again alone. Who exactly was I crying for?’
The writing was addictive and flawless which meant we were hooked from the onset. It had a dark sinister tone with off the charts passion, suspense and deception. The characters were hard to get a grip on but we have a feeling that this was intentional as they mocked us, shocked us and grabbed our attention.
“Don’t make me this monster, because for her, I will be.”
Sexy and thrilling the story developed but all along we could hear the Author’s voice in the background whispering for us not to get settled and comfortable. Part reason being the unnecessary Author warning which in some eyes could be viewed as an inadvertent spoiler.
“Some things are to be lived in the moment only, they can’t be captured.”
The Excess series explores the moment your past catches up with your present dressed in many guises. It explores a love that is not tied up into a neat little red heart. Rather it’s overwhelmingly chaotic and dangerous. Ugly and punishing. Devin, Aiden and Nina’s story is an intricate web of sexual desires and intrigue. This is not fluffy rainbow erotica. This is filthy, dirty lies.
