New Release+Review: 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.*

This is a new to me author and the blurb caught my attention. The books begins with a big shock and I knew I was in for a ride. Ivy finds some letters from a prisoner named Judson. He's awaiting trial for the murder of his ex lover boyfriend, who happened to be a student at the school he taught. Yeah talk about messy!! Even though Ivy was warned by several people including his ex lover Jennifer, she still corresponds with him and even visits him in jail. The plot of this story was good but I felt it was too rushed and didn't feel the connection between the characters. They fell in love way too fast IMO. I'm still on the fence with Judson and don't know if he can be trusted. I wish Ivy would have exercise more caution when it came to Judson. I was able to read the story in one sitting but it wasn't enough. I'm curious to find out will happen with Ivy and Judson. I have a hunch why Judson is so infatuated with Ivy and waiting to see if I'm right. I'm hoping I get the much needed answers in the next book after the way this book ended! That ending was insane and not cool! Overall I was impressed and if you are looking for a thrilling read this series is for you! 

3-3.5 Book Corner Stars
