REVIEW : Slay by Laurelin Paige

Edward Fasbender is a devil.

He’s my father’s business rival, a powerful, vicious man who takes what he wants and bows to no one. I only took the meeting because I was curious. I thought he was going to offer me a job.

But that’s not what he’s after at all. His proposal is much more intriguing, and I see an opportunity. An opportunity to turn the tables and bring down the devil.

I’ve gotten in trouble playing these games before. I know when the risk is too great, when the stakes are too high. I know how to be cold and strong-willed and destructive. I know how to withstand dominant men with arrogant charm and rugged features.

Yet I can’t resist taking on Edward.

And I can’t resist the pull he has on me.

Soon I’m not so sure which side of the battle I’m standing on–if I’m the warrior meant to slay,

Or the one who will be slain.

I found researching Edward compelling. I realized fairly quickly that he was an onion. Every detail that I discovered, each layer that I peeled away from the story behind that man led to another equally complex and fascinated layer, none of them ever providing any answers, just more questions.


If you’ve read the Fixed Series by Laurelin Paige you may remember Celia. The woman we all loved to hate. It is nice to see her get her own story, to get into her mind and to learn more about her. Honestly, after reading this I started to hate her a little bit less.

This book SLAYED. I was completely hooked from there very beginning. Celia and Edward’s story is completely addicting, full of steaminess, mysterious, and perfect. There is so much to both of these characters and Slay is just the surface of their stories.

Edward Fasbender. That man is deadly. He is arrogant, he is a jerk, he is possessive and he is also insanely handsome. No wonder Celia is so attracted to the man. He is the perfect man to give Celia and her games a run for their money.

After the ending of Slay, I CANNOT wait to see where their story goes and if the Dragon will be slayed in the end.
