Blog Tour for The Sleeping Serpent by Luna Saint Claire


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.

The Sleeping Serpent is a different type of read.  It's not a fluffy romance.   I really wasn't sure what to expect when reading this one.  I loved the foreword in this book.  I sometimes skip over those things but this one is definitely worth reading.  After I read the foreword, I knew I was in for an thought provoking read.
The story pulled me right in.   I wasn't sure whether to like or hate Nico.  At first I thought maybe he doesn't realize what he's doing but he does.  Nico was a way of hooking women and pulling them.   Luna is married to Tyler but when Nico comes into her life she feels the pull to him.  Luna has self doubt and insecurities which Nico feed on.  
This book is very different from other books I have read.  I found myself pulled in and I didn't want to put it down.
