"Oh my. I was hooked. You won't be able to put this down!" - Aleatha Romig, NYT Bestselling Author
Edward Fasbender is a devil.
He’s my father’s business rival, a powerful, vicious man who takes what he wants and bows to no one. I only took the meeting because I was curious. I thought he was going to offer me a job.
But that's not what he's after at all. His proposal is much more intriguing, and I see an opportunity. An opportunity to turn the tables and bring down the devil.
I've gotten in trouble playing these games before. I know when the risk is too great, when the stakes are too high. I know how to be cold and strong-willed and destructive. I know how to withstand dominant men with arrogant charm and rugged features.
Yet I can't resist taking on Edward.
And I can't resist the pull he has on me.
Soon I'm not so sure which side of the battle I'm standing on--if I'm the warrior meant to slay,
Or the one who will be slain.
Slay is Book ONE of FOUR in New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author, Laurelin Paige, next dark and edgy series.

Wow, this dark and edgy romance BLEW...MY…MIND—a 5+ star if I could! I wasn't expecting the ending this story just took; it has quite an unexpected surprise that is jaw-dropping good! This is an awesome book, one you NEED to READ—you won’t regret it! Have you ever seen a devil/monster in disguise? Well, meet Edward Fasbender who is British, very handsome, sexy, billionaire media mogul, arrogant, ruthless, has dark desires, a penchant for BDSM, and who always gets what he wants—now he wants Celia and her father’s media business. Edward has no quarrel with such faint praise as he has forever shunned anything remotely resembling love again. Indeed, the damning words merely serve to enhance his haughty façade. Celia Werner is an astute wealthy heiress who can be cold and heartless, and she has not found love because of ‘The Games’ she plays by blackmailing men to get what she wants from them until she meets her match—someone who is better at playing games—Edward Fasbender, the devil. Edward is her father’s business rival, and he decides to make a proposal to Celia. Why? If Celia accepts Edward’s proposal, will she try to incorporate ‘The Game’ on Edward? What will happen if her father finds out that she might accept a proposal from his business rival? All hell breaks loose! This book is letting you know what to expect later, but it is sure to be a hot as hell, sexy, intriguing and twisted dark romance!! There are several twists and turns within the story that makes it interesting. The storyline is fluid, and the characters are extremely well developed. Laurelin Paige, you did it by constructing a deliciously duplicitous edgy romance that is stupendous and will lure you into the wee hours and beyond that you will not be able to put this book down. I highly recommend this book!!
5 Intense and Mysterious Stars!
Oh boy here we go! Queen of angst is bringing the suspense upon us once again. We have a whole new roller coaster of emotion ahead of us and it won’t be a doozy, let me tell you. Ms. Paige can redeem anyone, I know it’s hard to believe but I’m already feeling so sorry for Celia. I know I shouldn’t but I think she’s been going through her own demons she has had to battle.
Edward Fasbender is a mystery, an enigma. I am dying to know more about this man and his feeling towards Celia. He holds something over her where Celia submits herself, it’s this energy Edward has about himself that holds Celia captive. These two have me on the edge of my seat! I cannot wait to find out what happens next, I need more like I need to breathe. Get ready, just make sure you don’t have any plans for the day when you read this. Once you start you won’t be able to stop! 5 intense and mysterious stars!
I was obsessed with the Fixed trilogy and Chandler. Celia’s story could have been way better, I absolutely hate all of the characters, zero depth and the sex scenes sucked. I won’t be buying the next book I could care less what happens to either one of these two.
