Sovereign (The Acquisition Series #3)
by Celia Aaron
The Acquisition has ruled my life, ruled my every waking moment since Sinclair Vinemont first showed up at my house offering an infernal bargain to save my father’s life. Now I know the stakes. The charade is at an end, and Sinclair has far more to lose than I ever did.
But this knowledge hasn’t strengthened me. Instead, each revelation breaks me down until nothing is left but my fight and my rage. As I struggle to survive, only one question remains. How far will I go to save those I love and burn the Acquisition to the ground?
Full disclosure: This book is a DARK romance with elements of BDSM, slavery, violence, and super-hot sex. It is the last of the Acquisition trilogy, no cliffhanger. If you're good with these caveats, enjoy!
“I have more nerve than that. I want to fuck you, and I have half a mind to strip you right now, flip you on your stomach, and punish you until you scream. So, answer my question. Has he touched you?”
“You wouldn’t dare!” Heat rushed through me at his threat. Because I was fucked up. Because I wanted him to want me. Because he was all I could think about—his face, his body, his scent, his twisted mind.
“Wouldn’t I?” He got to his knees and pulled me up before throwing me over his shoulder.
“What the fuck are you doing?” I beat at his back as he got to his feet and headed away from the house and toward the oaks that lined the driveway.
He ran his hand up my thigh and pressed hard against my pussy. “Hot and wet, just like I thought.”
“Put me down.”
“I will.” He strode into the shade of the oaks and pushed me up against one of them. The oak’s wide trunk hid us from the house.
I pressed my palm against his chest. “I’m not—”
He kissed me, pinning me between his chest and the tree. His hands roved me, and before long, he had one up my shirt, palming my breast through my bra. I dug my nails into his chest, but he only leaned in harder, as if he wanted my violence.
He ripped up my bra, exposing both breasts, and groaned into my mouth as he squeezed them. My knees went weak at his touch. Every thought of anger or hatred burned away as he consumed me as surely as fire does black powder. Breaking our kiss, he whipped me around to face the tree.
“Pull your pants down or I’ll do it myself.”
I glanced over my shoulder as he unfastened his belt. He ripped the elastic from my hair and tossed it aside.
“Do it, Stella.” He growled and slapped my ass.
I fumbled with my button and unzipped my pants. He did the rest, ripping them down my legs to my knees.
" Because you're mine. You've always been mine, long before any of this. " He bit my neck. " And I will always have what's mine."
My heart- the one one that had been betrayed, broken, and abused-suddenly beat with renewed purpose. I lived for him, for a life together outside the world of the Acquisition.
" I love you." His words were barely a whisper, but they spoke to me in a way nothing else ever could.
Sovereign, the third book in the Acquisition series just like the books before kept me on the edge of my seat. It had the twisted suspense and dark romance that I had been waiting for to complete this story.
Stella has made it through the first two trials scarred, beaten, abused and mentally drained but the next two trials Stella has a fight in her like none other and no matter what stands in front of her, she will see this through. In Sovereign Stella's trust will be more than tested and at times it will seem as the trust of the man she loves will break her. My admiration for this woman's strength has tripled with every book. Having doubts of Sinclair's love, the blame she carries for her friends (the other acquisitions), and carrying the weight of coming out the winner to protect the heart of the Vinemont family, Stella only looks to the end result. She will protect those she loves and seek her revenge on the Acquisition.
Sinclair Vinemont not only tested my patience, he literally had me screaming. Not only at times did I feel his betrayal and my heart felt trampled. I still found him irresistible and wanted to believe that everything he was doing was for the love of Stella and his family. Sin proves to be the man that he has always been and will do whatever it takes to be the new Sovereign. His love for Stella will help him see the trials to the end and will ask more from him than he could imagine. Watching her go through hell and back for his family will torture him. Will Stella's love be enough to win?
Sovereign is everything and more than I could have expected, it is dark and twisted enough to have kept me gripping my fist. It has that dominate and sexy romance that gave me chills with a love so strong that weighs on your heart. The Vinemont family maybe questionable but their love for each other is heartfelt. Celia Aaron put together a perfectly bunch of characters that added the intensity, darkness, suspense, passion and love to this series. I could not love Aaron more than I do now with giving me closure to this journey that desperately I needed. The series is a must read!!!
