To the outside world, Taylor Hudson has it all: beauty, money and social status. But Taylor’s privileged life is far lonelier than it appears.

Levi is the inside man on a job to steal fifteen million dollars from one of the town’s wealthiest families, putting him on a crash course with Taylor. Neither of them believe in love, but lust. . . that’s undeniable.

Now they’re locked in a wicked game of seduction and it’s unclear who is playing who. But neither of them expected the affair to lead to the deepest connection they’ve ever experienced. Because beneath Taylor’s perfect exterior lies a need for love that mirrors Levi’s own. 

As the heist approaches, how can Levi protect Taylor from the truth?  

Is he willing to give up everything to save the one girl who’s made him want to be a better man?

Perfect Betrayal by Season Vining

Perfect BetrayalIs it love, lust, or loneliness that brought a blue collar thief and the spoiled daughter of one of the town’s wealthiest families together? Levi is masquerading as the new handyman in an effort to find the safe that holds millions of dollars in the Hudson mansion. Taylor is the seemingly shallow and self-centered teen beauty who dares to taunt Levi with her body, while letting him know how lofty her position is. Like opposites, they are attracted to each other in an animalistic and carnal way, but their relationship begins to change when they find a lost soul longing to be loved and needed in each other. How long can Levi cover his lies to keep Taylor’s love? Are either of them truly capable of love? Levi has long struggled with controlling his anger and Taylor has grown up in a world of plastic credit cards, plastic friends and no real idea of what the world is really like, she is privileged, he has nothing, she is his meal ticket…and the plot thickens…will pretty words spoken from the bards of the past be enough?

Season Vining’s Perfect Betrayal is a tale of need, desire and a budding relationship built on deceit. Her heroine is not very likable throughout most of the book, but Taylor slowly drops her little rich girl fa├žade as she begins to see the world through the eyes of those who really live in it. Levi is a sympathetic anti-hero, but still, he clings to his charade, hiding what brought them together in the first place. Can Ms. Vining pull it all together and give these two a trusting and loving relationship? With a multi-layered plot, intense character interactions and the games people play, the twisted maze to the last page is a shocker!

I received an ARC edition from St. Martin's Griffin in exchange for my honest review.
