My name is Sebastian Lindstrom, and I’m the villain of this story.
I’ve decided to lay myself bare. To tell the truth for once in my hollow life, no matter how dark it gets. And I can assure you, it will get so dark that you’ll find yourself feeling around the blackened corners of my mind, seeking a door handle that isn’t there.
Don’t mistake this for a confession. I neither seek forgiveness nor would I accept it. My sins are my own. They keep me company. Instead, this is the true tale of how I found her, how I stole her, and how I lost her.
She was a damsel, one who already had her white knight. But every fairy tale has a villain, someone waiting in the wings to rip it all down. A scoundrel who will set the world on fire if that means he gets what he wants. That’s me.
I’m the bad guy.
A twisted and fierce love story that will make you root for the bad guy!
I’m going to start off by saying I’m not a dark romance reader. I’m just not. I can count the number of dark romance books I’ve read on one hand. No joke. It’s very rare that I’ll get the urge to read one. But when I read the synopsis for The Bad Guy (and I’ve read a few of Celia’s previous books), I just had to step out of my comfort zone and give this book a chance. And boy, am I ever grateful that I did.
The Bad Guy is one of those books that gets inside your head from the very beginning, and challenges your mind. It weaves so intricately around your thoughts that it provokes you to start thinking with your heart instead. The characters have a complex and undoubtedly passionate connection that leaves tingles throughout your body.
“He was the captive, the one tied to me. Not with a golden monitor, but by an invisible link that only we could feel.”
You’re introduced to Sebastian, a rich and utterly handsome CEO that possesses a hidden darkness inside. His mysterious charisma entices the reader into his world – like a burning flame, you’re tempted to get close to his heat. And Camille is just as drawn to him. Lust and fascination overtakes her, but she quickly realizes Sebastian is not the man she thought he was.
“His voice and his body pulled me into the darkness – the only place I ever felt truly alive.”
I don’t want to give away too much and spoil it for readers, as I think it’s the type of book you just have to dive head first into. It’s an intense and compelling story that takes infatuation to an extreme level, and delves deep into the world of emotions, desperation, and unrestricted love.
An undeniable 5 star must read!
Celia Aaron is a recovering attorney who loves romance and erotic fiction. Dark to light, angsty to funny, real to fantasy—if it’s hot and strikes her fancy, she writes it. Thanks for reading.
