REVIEW – CAMOUFLAGE (Predator & Prey #1) by Kate Stewart

12081336_10205893964761331_2135087182_n

SYNOPSIS:

I lived my life by two principles: order and excellence.
My moral compass steered me out of the slums of backwoods Tennessee and towards the woman I was destined to become, but not without gathering a few skeletons along the way.

Eventually, I found success, but my restless, relentless nature still left me feeling unsatisfied.

Then I met a ghost.

At first, I was sure Daniello was a figment of my imagination, a beautiful and dangerous apparition with a fat cock and an animalistic hunger. He threatened my control and need for order, and in his absence, I became more haunted by my past.

He wanted me submissive.

I wanted to know him.

Then my ghost met my skeletons.

This is the first book in a series.
If you are not a fan of cursing, erotic, extremely explicit sex, immoral behavior, dysfunction, or sexual scenarios that may make you feel uncomfortable, this is not the series for you.

I was lucky to be able to Beta Read this one.
I am being 100% honest when I tell you, I didn’t find a thing wrong with this book! Angelica’s stories just get better and better. I thought “The Excess” was beyond smoking hot but this one will have panties melting EVERYWHERE!!!! Just wait till you meet Daniello ladies!!

Camouflage is a spin-off of The Excess Series. We met Taylor Ellison in that series. She was Nina Scott’s assistant who later ends up becoming her business partner. I really didn’t know what to make of Taylor previously. She seemed a bit closed off and I wasn’t sure that I really wanted to read about her, but of course, Angelica’s gift at story telling succeeded in completely changing my mind.

Taylor is a very strong willed and bad ass heroine! She had to learn to be tough and fend for herself from a very young age. She had an abusive, drug addicted mother, and a neglectful father. From such a young age, she did whatever she had to in order to get herself out of the crap life she was born into.

Now a successful businesswoman, she is loving life and she likes to have her fun with men too. Lately she’s been frequenting The Rabbit Hole. If you’ve read The Sexual Awakenings series, then you would know this is an exclusive sex club where we met Violet and Rhys, whom Taylor happens to know. Taylor has been frequenting the club a lot more recently because of a tall, dark, and handsome man she has seen almost every night there. She hasn’t felt a strong attraction to a man in a long time. Daniello Di Giovanni finally introduces himself to her but their meeting is cut short when he’s called away by a business associate.

While she’s back at home, at a local club, she happens to run into Daniello and HOLY SHIT, what happens is FREAKING HOT and let me just say Taylor wasn’t the only one whose panties melted!! OMG this man! I mean maybe in RL, he might have gotten slapped for his actions but if I were to fantasize about a sexy encounter with a HOT Alpha male, this might just be the way I’d want things to go down!

Daniello is definitely a dangerous man and he basically tells Taylor he wants her but that whatever is between them is strictly physical and will end on his terms only. Taylor hasn’t let a man dominate her in a very long time and there is a struggle for power between the two in the beginning but through it all, the sexual chemistry is OFF THE CHARTS HOT!!

Daniello’s business, whatever that may be, and Taylor’s past, combined, will cause quite a bit of action and could possibly threaten what is starting to build between the two. It starts off purely sexual but actual feelings begin to develop between Daniello and Taylor.

Camouflage Teaser_final

I’m anxious to get my hands on the next book because this ends on a bit of a cliffy. One I truly didn’t see coming and I’m dying to know how it all plays out for Daniello and Taylor.

I am not exaggerating when I say this is one hell of a FABULOUS start for a new series. Angelica definitely has written another winner!! I can’t wait for you all to read this! You will definitely be panting for Daniello!!

The book is due out October 31st!! Less than a week to wait for it. 🙂

Taylor Ellison is a 29 yr. old woman who grew up in Dyer, Tennessee & lived most of her childhood in a constant state of fear. Her life was never her own until she was able to abandon everything she ever knew & start over. She didn’t want the fate she was cursed with to be all she ever had, so 13 years ago she walked away from her old life, & did what was necessary to free herself from her past. She came from nothing, but ends up attending Harvard & making a life for herself that she is proud of.

16791525._SY540_

Now Taylor is a very successful businesswoman living in Charleston, South Carolina. She co-owns a company with her best friend & is extremely wealthy. She has succeeded in changing her image & escaping her past. She wants for nothing & surrounds herself with excellence. Professionally she is fulfilled, but personally she is looking for a bit of excitement. Taylor is only interested in casual sex with no attachments. Her past has taught her you can’t count on love, so Taylor just wants to sate her sexual desires. She’s restless & wants a man who will understand her body & her needs.

16753828._SY540_

Taylor often frequents a sex club called The Rabbit Hole hoping to find a man that catches her eye. She continues to notice a gorgeous exotic looking man that intrigues her. His name is Daniello Di Giovanni. Eventually they make a connection & he asks Taylor to spend time with him. She agrees and they start enjoying each other physically. He’s arrogant, controlling & Taylor can’t get enough of him or resist him.

16754257._SY540_

As Taylor spends more time with Daniello, he continues to be very mysterious, & she realizes he has a secret life she may not be pleased with. He seems dangerous, but she can’t let him go. We start to see a softer side of Daniello emerge & Taylor is completely addicted to this man! We get some surprises from Taylor’s past that pop up, some action thrown in, & some seriously hot sexy times! This was my first book by Angelica Chase & it was fabulous! She sure knows how to write an exciting sexy story! I can’t wait to read more from her & am dying to know what happens next with Daniello & Taylor! 😀

This was my first Angelica Chase novel and all I can say is WOW!I can’t believe I waited this long to read one of her books, silly me.

Think of this author as a very talented and passionate musician; one that will play with your emotions and will take you away on a sensual rhapsody and at the end of it all, leave you begging for more…

Taylor is a woman who works hard and plays harder.

For the past few years she’s been focused on her career and has successfully made it as partner in a very profitable company . She doesn’t have time to date so she indulges herself in a sex club where she’s seen a beautiful and mysterious man, who has been playing the staring game with her. The gorgeous guy is Daniello, a man that plays only by his own rules and he is about to show Taylor a very dangerous yet decadent game, one she won’t be able to resist.

Taylor’s past is the reason why she’s such a guarded person. She’s always calculating every single move she makes, never allowing herself to let her emotions get the best of her, but when she’s around Daniello she loses all control, and how delicious it is to give into him.

Both Taylor and Daniello are extremely strong individuals so their relationship starts as a sort of battle of the sexes. Who will walk away first? Who can resist the longest?

Taylor has all the money she could ever wish for and yet she feels like there’s a void in her life and so she will feel tempted to go back into her past and try to find some of the missing pieces in her life but little does she know that deception and darkness will be waiting for her in the little town where she once left her heart.

This story delivers a punch. When you start reading, the plot takes you on an erotic path and by the end of the book, the thrill and mystery will leave you mesmerized. Love is not the main focus for neither of the main characters. They are on a different quest, but their encounters are explosive and for me this was one of those books where you think by mid-story I had everything figured out but Oh no!!, turns out I was not even close and I loved that.

The unpredictability of this story mixed with the eroticism left me truly panting and yes, there’s a cliffhanger, so you can imagine how desperate I am for the next book. Needless to say I was in dire need of a few martinis after I was done reading.
