From the bestselling author of Arsen. A broken love story comes a new sexy, emotional, and romantic standalone.

Two strangers in Paris ...
One passionate, earth-shattering kiss.

He was the artist upstairs
with the tantalizing smile and laughing eyes.

He was the devil inviting me to sin,
seducing me to dance in the bright moonlight.

He was desire and need.

When he touched me, my body sang.
My soul came alive.

But I belonged to another man,
and he didn't want to let me go.


“I realized, maybe for the first time, what it feels like to want, to need something you cannot have.”

I always afraid to read Mia Asher because of the not-really-good experience with Virtue duet. But my friend assured me this is SAFE with no triangle or whatsoever. I was in the mood for something soft and slow. In the end, I feel conflicted to rate this but the cover totally drool-worthy! Hmph.

Valentina didn't happy with her marriage after she found out her husband's infidelity. Everything changed but she gave her husband, William a second chance. He promised her a trip to Paris to fix their marriage. But it was an illusion because something came up. Valentina ended up alone and stay in Paris. She accidentally met a sexy stranger whose also became her neighbor. Sébastien befriend with Valentina and slowly turns into sexual attraction.

One day you’re going to stop running away from me. And when that day finally comes, I’ll be here waiting for you,” he whispers softly, his words a caress. “Now go … before I change my mind and decide it doesn’t please me to share you with others after all.”

Valentina felt trap with her marriage. She was once in love with William but it changed. I didn't really connect with her. She's too naive or stupid, I don't know. Once a cheater always a cheater. She's always distracted with sex by her husband and forgive him in the next day. Her past mentioned how smart she is but ended up like a 'trophy wife'. William control her life and Valentina only has her freedom in Paris.

I want him. I want him inside of me. I want to know the taste of his seed on my tongue. The force of his thrusts. And most of all, I want this. The laughter. The butterflies. Him.

Sébastien didn't believe in love again until Valentina. They have their fun together. I admitted their chemistry run smoothly until I ended up boring with all the sudden romance. Sébastien understand the risk of pursue her as a married woman. Luckily, Valentina feel the same towards him.

I want you to need me like I need you. Violate you like you violate my thoughts. Fill you without shame and mercy. Lose myself in your body and never come back.” ~Sébastien

The story told from multiple POVs between Valentina, Sébastien and William. It was totally predictable about Valentina's marriage. Sébastien destined to be her knight. Beside with Valentina's mousy attitude, my issue is with the too detailed sex scenes from non MCs. Overall, it was a light and okay read without OTT drama (maybe a little). Love Me in the Dark ended up a decent read for me. Nicely written but a bit flowery/poetical. Valentina and Sébastien are totally in love and HOT!

She reminds me of the sea: untamed, unpredictable, but beautiful, so damn beautiful.
