Love is the sweetest venom.

I told her I wanted her body and not her love.
I lied.

I fell in love with a lie...
She was beauty and destruction.
Kissing her was a tender song.
Owning her body, a wild poem.
Loving her, my downfall.
But she was mine.
Or so I thought.

One man offer me his love.
The other, the world.
'm falling, falling, falling ...

“He’s danger inviting you to play with him as he taunts you with tempting smile. And you know you will be hurt for having done so, but you won’t be sorry – no, never sorry. He looks like a man who was born to rule and fuck.”

Before I review this book, let me just take a minute and tell you about my love for Mia Asher. She is one of those authors that I completely adore and will read anything they write. When I read Arsen a few years ago, I was hooked. Her words are always beautifully and brilliantly written. I love that so many love this book. There were parts I did love, but overall it just didn’t work for me.

I loved Easy Virtue. It was one of my favorite books of 2015 and I rated it 5+ stars. It pains

The S T U N N I N G conclusion to EASY VIRTUE

This story! Nothing can prepare you for the shape of SWEETEST VENOM, the follow up and conclusion to EASY VIRTUE. It's a two book series that showcases the most exquisite LOVE triangle with depth, development and heartache.

I felt so many emotions, navigated through thoughts and feelings. It explores acceptance, hope and LOVE wrapped up in an eloquent prose with complex emotion and delectable eroticism, all of whic

MIA ASHER, what’s your address? I’m sending you my tissue bills!!!

Rating: 4.5 'Sweetest Hope' Stars


My Views: If you have read Mia Asher’s previous books, you know exactly what to expect. Sweetest Venom is a whirlwind of emotions – full of heartbreak and hope and ugly crying.

"To love you is self-destruct, Blaire, but I seem unable to stop."

[A piece of advice]

Style of writing: I don’t remember a time when Mia’s writing disappointed me and with Sweetest Venom her words pull

Blaire is consumed with trying to make a decision that will affect the rest of her life. She has two men who want her, desire her, love her. With one guy, she feels the magical connection that most of us want to feel and that a few of us have felt in a very real way. The other guy is completely different.

Sweetest Venom is the conclusion to the Virtue series. It's a captivating and addictive story that keep my interest until the end! It's fast paced, emotional, angsty and intense. I'm not saying this often about authors, but I need to say that I admire Mia Asher for the amazing job she is doing as an author! I’ve admired her from the first moment and I’ve enjoyed following her work. Her books are unique and her words beautiful!

I have seriously been waiting what seems like ever for this book and I have spent so much time speculating. I mean am I, Team Law or Team Ronan or just Team Blaire? Well ladies, the wait is over, it doesn’t matter what Team you are because Mia has delivered the verdict.

The story picks up where Easy Virtue left off, I think, to the best of my recollection. I was seriously concerned I wouldn’t remember all the important facts, but it all came back to me. Within minutes I was immersed

When I read Easy Virtue in 2014(, I was taken by the writing of Mia Asher. She took an idea; wrapped it with emotions, details and passion...causing me to lose my mind with its ending...I wanted more and right away.

I was not alone in this mindset. Reader after reader sang the praises and cursed the cliffy. I left a love note in the space where the next book was supposed to be...telling Ms. Asher of my desire and need for her

'But you can only live a lie for so long before it smothers you, poisoning every word, every touch, and every kiss.'

When I read the Easy Virtue, I had real trouble liking Blaire. She drove me nuts with her actions and decisions, which I obviously did not agree with. But, what I think I disliked the most was how she hurt people. In the first book, you get to see Blaire change a bit as the book progressed, and this was because of Ronan. The focus in the first book was all about t

The relationships written by Mia Asher are not for the faint of heart. They are emotionally angsty. There are times when you think the tides are turning only to be swept out by the undertow.

The ending of the first book, Easy Virtue, was not "easy" to take and I thought the two year wait for this book would be the most torturous thing...I was wrong.


Reading about Blaire...and Ronan....and Lawrence dealing with their feelings, both of love and hate, was hard to take. I had a lot of conflicting feelings and it really does a head job on you with regards on who should be together...and who will even be together right to the very end!

Edit on 4/18/16

Ok, I never, EVER go back and change a rating, but I think just this one time, I need to. This book stayed with me for a solid two weeks after I read it. I discovered the epic soundtrack Mia created for it and then I fell into it all over again, the story, the emotions. And THAT is not possible unless it's a good book! I have worried about the um....guy that did not get the girl and hoped that he is ok...yeah, I've lost it!

Wow, I’m glad I waited to read books 1 and 2 back to back. I know the waiting would have killed me otherwise. Mia didn’t disappoint with this spectacular conclusion. This second book had many twists and took all three of these characters down new paths.

In Sweetest Venom, we are reunited with Blaire, Ronan and Lawrence. As Blaire chose Lawrence at the end of Easy Virtue, the consequences of her decisions deeply impact each one of them in this final conclusion.

Blaire is convinced that she can protect her heart by only seeking superficial and sexual relationships with wealthy men and Lawrence isn’t any different to her. However, as Blaire begins to get closer to Lawrence, her feelings deepen and she starts to realize she can no longer p

Blaire White made her bed but she couldn't lie in it without hurting herself or the people around her. She had to make a choice between what she wanted and what she needed. It didn't come easy when both Lawrence Rothschild and Ronan Geraghty were no longer the same men she used to know.

Unfortunately, the author completely ruined the series for me. There were just too many (view spoiler)

If you write a story about a heroine who has never been shown any kind of love I expect the hero to be the one to show it to her. I need all of her reservations and stereotypes of what happens when people fall in love

Wow. I pretty much devoured this two-part series in 48 hours. I'm so thankful I put off reading Easy Virtue till Sweetest Venom was out. I think my heart is permanently damaged though. It was pounding into overdrive for most of this book!

Sweetest Venom picks up right on the heels of Easy Virtue. Let's face it, Blaire has probably more psychological baggage than any heroine I've read in a very very long time. I'm going to stick my neck out there and say I was never on #Tea

Sweetest Venom was one of the most anticipated read of this year. I was so curious how this story will end.
Virtue Duet wasn't for everyone's cuppa but it was just for my taste.

In the first book...We mostly saw Ronan, we knew him and his persona. But in this book, we saw Lawrence. The real side of him. Not much but enough...

I will not hide this, I was Lawrence's girl from the first second. But that doesn't mean I didn't like Ronan cause I really loved him.

This review is hard because I am so afraid of spoilers. This book owned me from beginning to end. Sweetest Venom is a book that you need to go in not knowing absolutely anything about the conclusion. You need to go in and experience every single emotion put in there by the amazing Mia Asher. I have no words to describe her magic in this book. The angst, the feelings, the ups and downs, everything was just perfectly crafted in my opinion. A book with all the feels, characters that you won't ever ...more
