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.*

3.5 stars. 

This was the first Dori Lavelle book so I went into it not knowing what to expect. The blurb sounded like something I had never read before so it drew me in. Just be warned that this ends in a cliff hanger. The story line isn't like anything i’ve read before, I normally stay away from psychologically challenging books like this, I prefer a different genre but that doesn't mean I didn’t like it. The story line was intriguing but some things that happened with the plot twist weren’t entirely believable. I’m still not entirely sold on the chemistry between Ivy and JD, maybe this will change with the next instalment.  JD is a character that you won’t want to like but you might find yourself falling for him. 

This plot is really original and I liked it. I’m looking forward to see where things go.
