Sweet Poisons by Natalie Bennett is an extra dark, New Adult Contemporary Romance.
*Disclaimer: This book contains mature content and may not be suitable for younger readers*
Mysterious boy painted in shades of red.
Eccentric girl dripping in sunshine.
He was the type mother’s warned their little girls about—a cocky, rich asshole with a pretty smile, unapologetically insane and wild.
I was the type guys like him usually ignored—a free spirit who hid my crazy beneath an odd good girl facade, and the art hanging on my studio walls.
We were opposites in every way but one, and we collided like two runaway trains that never had a chance of stopping.
What blossomed between us, our ‘relationship’, was maniacal.
We got stuck in a cycle of madness.
Rhett Sullivan became a bittersweet poison I couldn’t get enough of.
In the end, that’s what destroyed me.
Because in the end?
Our love was nothing but a lie.
I said I was done slapping warning labels on my book babies this year, but since I have never written full on NA yet, I’m going to give a tiny one now. This will be the only label this duet will have. If you are not a fan of twisted stories that deal with dark themes, rich assholes, and lots of filthy sex, this will not appeal to you. This couple is not unicorns and rainbows and neither is their story.”
Now when I say this is a dark book, I mean it’s a DARK book.
From the characters to the plot, everything about this story screams crazy, compulsive, possessiveness. It’s the perfect blend of dark and twisty with suspense and, of course, romance! Lots and lots of steam..
This isn’t a book I’d recommend to the typical, swoon-worthy reader. You have to enjoy the rugged, intense scenes that I think were very emotionally written.
Welcome to the dark side of romance.
I gave this one 4 out of 5 stars.

How I Read It: eARC from Xpresso Book Tours
*Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. All of my book reviews contain my honest opinion only and are not influenced in any way.*
“Shameless author of twisted unconventional love stories.
Natalie has a penchant for (writing) villainous immoral men and tends to deviate away from traditional happily-ever-afters.
When she isn’t slaying words on multiple projects, she’s either sipping on a margarita or hanging out in the sunshine state with her husband, their three boys, and her pit-bull named Lulu.”
