Emily’s life had three basic rules, love her family fiercely. Never expect forever and most importantly, shield her heart from pain. At a tender age she learnt love is not forever, sex destroys and if you don’t invest your heart, it can never be broken. She played life safe. 

All it takes though, is one moment, a defining light in the perpetual darkness to bring life into your heart. For Emily, it was a night she would never forget, an ordinary evening of dancing, drinking and if she was in the mood, a brief one night stand. But then he beguiled her. His emerald eyes captivated and enslaved her to him. 

What Emily didn’t anticipate was the mysterious giant to sit beside her and rock her foundations. His dirty mouth and sexy innuendos intrigued her. The green eyed Adonis took her for the ride of her life, on his motorbike. One she would never forget. He intertwined himself into her life and captured her soul.

But the illusion of beauty can hide a broken past. And as the lovers fall deeper, the darkness leeches into the light, suffocating and destroying all within its path. Until there is nothing left but betrayal and shattered hearts. 

*This is the third in the series but intended as a standalone. 
**Due to sexual content, it may not be suitable for readers under the age of 18 years of age. 

5 Star Review by Jen Skewes

Double Betrayal is book 3 in the Surviving series by Ada Frost.  I was so excited to read this book.  I didn’t even read the synopsis because Ada wrote it and it’s Will’s story.  So of course I was reading it regardless.  All I knew was that something happened between him and his long time love Marissa and we would meet his new love interest in Double Betrayal.  I finally decided to actually read the synopsis and seeing that the heroine was Emily it just made me even more excited for this book. 

Will has recently moved to the UK after his marriage fell apart.  He had loved Marissa since he was 14 years old.  He basically lived his life pleasing her and loving her for 20 years.  Until the end when she completely shattered him in a way that he never expected.  He has no intentions of ever giving his heart away again.  He has built a wall around his heart that no woman will ever be able to break through.  He is now in the UK visiting his brother Johan.  One night at a bar he meets the blonde haired pixie named Emily.   He has trouble keeping his eyes off of her and his hands to himself.  He wants her, if only for one night.  But he soon realizes that one night with Emily is not enough.

When Emily was 18 years old she thought her life was perfect and all planned out.  She would marry the love of her life and they would have a family together.  Until he shattered her heart into a million pieces.  It is 6 years later and Emily is just trying to make ends meet and give Izzy the perfect life.  Izzy is her rock, her love and her reason for everything.  After having her heart broken once she swears that she will never fall in love again.  But meeting Will Senior changes that.  It was supposed to be one night, so why can’t she stop thinking about him?  Will and Emily are two people whose pasts are both filled with betrayal.  They both have no intention of falling in love again for fear of getting hurt.  But neither one of them can stay away from the other.  And as time goes by their feelings become more than just about sex and passion.  Maybe they aren’t as broken as they think.  Maybe they can love again, but in order to do that they both need to let go of the past and open themselves up to the idea of love again.

I loved this book so much.   The prologue completely sucked me in.  I went from being happy for Emily to heart broken.  Emily is definitely one of favorite heroines.  She has so much love and is so selfless for reasons that you will understand once you read this book.  She is sweet, caring and just amazing.  From the first chapter and the moment that Will opened his mouth I was in love.  He is this big sexy giant with a dirty mouth and mind to go with it.  What I loved though was that throughout this book you begin to see that the person that he is when with Emily is the real Will.  I think for so long he wanted to please his ex wife that he became someone that he wasn’t. Emily brought life to Will and brought out this sexy, dominating side to him that I loved!  He was also so sweet, caring and very protective of both Emily and Izzy.  The first sex scene between these two, holy crap was it hot!!.  I think I may need to invest in a motorcycle!

Double Betrayal has a sweet and fun side to it.  And while one minute you find yourself laughing and smiling the next your heart is breaking.  There is drama and angst in the form of a psycho twin.  I have read plenty of books that have book bitches in them, you know those bitches that you just want to punch.  Well take those book bitches and multiply it by ten and you have Rhea, Emily’s twin sister.  Oh My God the woman was just pure evil. Every time her name was mentioned my heart started beating faster because I was so afraid of what would happen next, because with this chick anything goes.  

I can’t write this review without mentioning one person and that is Jack.  Now at first meeting him I didn’t like him for reasons that I do not want to give away.  But you see how years later he still regrets hurting Emily and that he still loves her.  There is a moment in the book where I honestly had so much respect for him.  I would love to see him get his happily ever after because I honestly think he deserves it.

This book will make you laugh, cry, break your heart, and will have you swooning.  I loved that we still get to see Johan in this one and see his happiness continue.  I love his relationship with Will and how much he cares for Emily.  Double Betrayal is a beautiful story of second chances, love, betrayal and moving on from the past.   Ada Frost managed to bring out all of the emotions in this one.  You will fall in love with the sexy giant and his little pixie.   I loved it and cannot wait for Ryan’s story, especially after that epilogue!!  I know that Ryan’s story will be one big roller coaster ride of emotions and I am ready for it!!

He didn’t ascend the two steps up to the raised floor I was on, so we were now more or less of similar height. It was a little disconcerting he was still taller, even at my advantage.
“Did you just tattletale like a little bitch?”
“He was touching your ass.”
“And if you want me to be your bitch, I can do that.” The grin that spread across his handsome face showcased a sexy line of white teeth. He had a very small slit in his lip, as if he suffered from dry lips. Without thought, I leaned forward and sucked his bottom lip into my mouth. He tasted like beer and delicious man. I knew I was risking the giant’s bollocks kissing him in front of my brothers, but I couldn’t stand more time passing without having a little taste.
I pulled away, slowly releasing his lip with a nip of my teeth. He didn’t make any move to touch me, or kiss me back. He simply stared at me with shining eyes and a hot smirk.
“Dance with me.” It wasn’t a question; I wanted to feel his body against mine.
“Can I touch your ass?”
I didn’t answer; I simply sauntered back onto the dance floor. I glanced over my shoulder and offered him a coy smile. Acis had scared the poor young guy away.
I started the slow sway of my hips, keeping my eyes pinned to my avid admirer. His eyes tracked my movements. The sway of my hips, the bend of my knee, the curve of my waist. Slowly, he walked toward me with the prowl of a dangerous animal ready to capture his prey. I expected him to wrap his arm around my body and pull me against him, but instead, he lifted his hand and hooked his finger under my chin and ran his thumb over my bottom lip.
“You’re a dangerous woman, pixie-girl.”
I didn’t speak; I simply stared into his eyes and wrapped my lips around his thumb and sucked it into my mouth, licking the pad before slowly releasing it. His eyes flared and his extremely long lashes battered against his cheeks like butterflies trying to escape.  Finally, his thick arm banded around my back and lifted me up against him, my feet dangled near his shins. There was no finesse in the way I crashed against him—as I said, I was clumsy. But the heat of his skin burned against me, igniting a desperate need inside me. I pressed my hands against his chest and curled my fingers into the fabric, anchoring myself to him as he pressed his hips against mine and started a slow sensuous rocking. With each wave of movement, my stomach tightened as his hips and hard-on pressed perfectly against me. I parted my legs slightly, allowing him to slide his thigh between my legs. His hand caressed my waist as it slid down my side, over the small of my back, to cup my arse. He pressed against me, bringing me tightly against his hardness. I closed my eyes and a small moan escaped me as electric pulses throbbed through me.
The scratch of stubble against my cheek and the hot warmth of his breath made me shiver violently.
“I want to feel, touch, and taste your skin, Pix,” he whispered against my ear, the seductive baritone of his voice shattering any protests I may have had. Which I didn’t. I tightened my fist in his shirt, certain I was nipping his flesh.
“I want you to watch as my tongue licks every inch of this perfect body. Starting with your tight nipples.” He took my earlobe into his mouth and nipped with his teeth. I melted against him. The only support for my weakened body was my grip on his shirt and his hands on my arse.
“I—” I said breathlessly as he licked a warm path down my neck to cover my throbbing pulse with his mouth, sucking hard against my heated flesh.
“Either way, babe, I need you naked.”

Hi! What to say about myself...I don't really have anything interesting to offer other than I love to read, and create stories for others to enjoy. I've always been told I have a vivid imagination, I just lacked the confidence to pursue putting it onto the written page. But finally I embarked on making a single dream come true. 

I love to read, and write. I only read romance, any genre really, but it has to have a beautiful romance. I also demand a HEA, even if it takes two or three books to get there. Reality is too broken and jaded without having to live through the trauma and angst in a book for it to end unhappily.
