Blog Tour / Review - The Sleeping Serpent by Luna Saint Claire @Compelled_Books


50 Shades meets Gone Girl in this immensely erotic, deliciously dark, and psychologically twisted new novel

Whether by free will or fate, Luna’s encounter with Nico provokes a storm that shatters her perceptions of identity, duty, morality, and self-worth. The storm didn’t blow in from the outside. She was the storm. Its turbulence within her, forcing her to confront the darkness, uncovers her secrets and her pain.

Book Description 

Luna Saint Claire has a loving husband and an enviable career as a Hollywood costume designer. Still, something is gnawing at her. Bored with her conventional and circumscribed existence, she feels herself becoming invisible. When she meets Nico Romero, a charismatic yoga guru, his attentions awaken her passions and desires. Dangerous, but not in a way that scares her, he makes her feel as if anything is possible. Infatuated, she becomes entangled in Nico’s life as he uses his mesmerizing sexuality to manipulate everyone around him in his pursuit of women, wealth, and celebrity.
Immensely erotic and psychologically captivating, The Sleeping Serpent is the compelling story of a woman’s obsession with a spellbinding guru and the struggle to reclaim her life. At its heart, it is a painfully beautiful exposition of unconditional love that makes us question what we truly want.

5 Stars 
I could not believe this was an debut novel. 
The writting is excellent.
While it did take me a bit to read not just because it was long but beause of all the mind play. I actually had to take a breaks from reading this, which is something I rarely do, however durning my break periods I had no peace beause if I wasnt reading I was thinking about Nico and his manulipating way. I kept thinking there has to be a reason and while I wanted to throat punch him I still found myself drawn to him. I was no different then the many woman who threw themselves at him.
This book is completly different than anything you have ever read. It is dark, mysterious, erotic, unique, and quite frankly scary as hell. It does have a bit of a slow start but them bam you are hooked. Prepare yourselves. This story will stick with you for years to come.
