A male Romance Author… a convention in Vegas… a female book blogger… a goal to lose her virginity… what happens when you mix all the above?

Fallon McKinley is headed to Vegas for the Wicked Wenches Romance Con and losing her virginity is only one of her goals. The other is to meet her favorite author of romance novels, R.T. Sinclair. What she doesn’t realize is that the sexy green-eyed god she rams into at the airport is the real R.T. When they keep running into each other, she’s shocked, but excited, because the attraction is irresistible.

Ryland Thomas Sinclair doesn’t want anyone to know his true identity. He’s the author that all women love, but everyone thinks he’s a female. He hides his persona behind the public face of his twin sister, keeping his own a secret. But after meeting the lovely

Fallon, his intentions to avoid a relationship come to a screeching halt. She’s put an unwanted kink into his perfectly laid out plans. His unusual reaction surprises him because after a heart-shredding breakup a few years ago, he’s managed to avoid women at all costs.

Resisting Fallon becomes more difficult than he imagines. Soon things are spiraling out of control, until a major miscommunication has Fallon walking out of his home and his life. Will Ryland Thomas succeed in losing the woman he loves? Or can he win her back?

Kristina’s Review:
Exquisite Betrayal gave a unique twist on what I initially thought was a predictable story line. I did enjoy the plot overall, but that’s not to say that it 100% did it for me. To be honest, at times I felt like the story had too many ups, and downs within the characters’ relationships.  I mean my neck is still sore from all the whiplash this book gave me. 
Reading the different POV’s was great, and I liked seeing the story from both sides. However, at times it felt like even the characters were jumbled up, and left out of knowing their own feelings. I feel like with a bit of editing, the story/characters would have felt more developed, instead of confusing. 
 
The plot itself was great. I really thought at the beginning that the betrayal was going to be one thing, but as I read I began seeing the author take an entirely different route, which I thought was genius. I loved how much I despised the entire “betrayal,” and all it’s active participants. I wanted justice. I needed resolution, and I was not unsatisfied with the outcome. 
 
Our main characters Ryland-Thomas, and Fallon were simply precious. Even though everything fell into place a little too conveniently perfect at times, I still enjoyed seeing the individual growth of each character. Both separately, and together as a couple. Again, even though this wasn’t a five star for me, it is still a great story that I enjoyed reading.

HargroveAbout the Author, A.M. Hargrove:

One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn’t do something soon, it would quickly be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life.  So, she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase.  Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodge ball pro and had über quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head.  Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what laptop out the window.  She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone, called her boss and quit her job.  Grinning, she made another call to her hubs and told him of her new adventure (after making sure his heart was beating properly again). 

 So began A. M. Hargrove’s career as a YA/NA and Adult Romance writer. Her books include the following: Edge of Disaster, Shattered Edge and Kissing Fire (The Edge Series); The Guardians of Vesturon series (Survival, Resurrection, Determinant, reEmergent and Beginnings); Dark Waltz and Tragically Flawed. 

 Other than being in love with writing about being in love, she loves chocolate, ice cream and coffee and is positive they should be added as part of the USDA food groups.
