Midnight Scent by Dori Lavelle

Title: Midnight Scent
Series: Amour Toxique #1
Author: Dori Lavelle
Genre: New Adult Romantic Thriller/Suspense
 Release Date: September 27, 2016


I find the love letters in my new dorm room, left behind by a previous occupant.

They're meant for someone else, but the words speak to me. They slide off the page and wrap themselves around my body, touching me in places I never knew existed.

I'm falling in love with each word, unable to stop myself.

And I don't even know his name.

Until they tell me.

His name is Judson Devereux. They say he’s toxic. Falling for him will be a mistake.

I want to believe them. I want to walk away. But the words refuse to be erased from the invisible parts of me.

I'm hooked on the scent of his poison. It’s bad for me. It could kill me. But I’m in too deep.

*This series contains sexual content, dark themes, and violence that could trigger emotional distress in readers.*

*Amour Toxique is a serial that unfolds over three volumes.*

Rating: 3.5*

I was looking forward to this as I was drawn in by lost love letters being discovered and a search to find their owner and the author. I found the letters neither romantic nor special. In fact they were screaming manipulation by a controlling man. I could not fathom any reason why Ivy would follow through under the circumstances and I found the whole situation creepy and just plain wrong.

I'm not sure if the author was aiming for this situation that was so obviously wrong but the manipulation and the pulling in of Ivy needed to be more subtle to the reader and Ivy as a character needed to be more relatable for me to be pulled completely into this story. It was still an interesting concept and read that will pull others into the story easily.
