I became infatuated with Dylan Fall in Glimmer, but I fell in love with him in Glow. Beth Kerry is a master at her craft, creating characters and a story that is haunting, seductively erotic, and engrossing all at the same time. ~ Leigh, Guilty Pleasures
Alice Reed never dreamed she’d escape the stigma of her disturbing past. That’s why she was shocked when, out of the blue, she was recruited to join the elite Durand Enterprises by the enigmatic CEO himself, Dylan Fall. The erotic charge between them was fast and deliciously forbidden. But as Alice opened up to worlds she’d never known, everything changed once again with a stunning discovery: there’s much, much more concealed in the shadows of Alice’s troubling childhood, and her life is about to change forever.
Now, with another piece of the puzzle of Alice’s identity revealed, a mysterious adversary plots to destroy it all—and Dylan is determined to protect her. But as Alice’s sexual addiction to Dylan turns helplessly to love, she can’t help but wonder: how deeply can she really trust him? What were his true motives in drawing her close to him? And what other secrets does he know about her past that even she has yet to learn?

Review copy provided for an honest review
I became infatuated with Dylan Fall in Glimmer, but I fell in love with him in Glow, the conclusion to the dark and mysterious story about an heiress, kidnapped as a child, who is brought back to claim her place in the corporate dynasty her family founded.
With her discovery that she may be the kidnapped heir to the Durand family, Alice’s life starts to snowball in a series of memories and revelations. She insists on completing her duties to her kids in her position as a counselor at Camp Durand by day, and meeting Dylan to spend her nights at the castle, owned by the controlling CEO.
Dylan is powerful and darkly seductive as the CEO of Durand Enterprises, and his position of power creates the taboo feel of a professor/student dynamic between him and Alice, which only adds to his overall appeal. Almost in a Fifty Shades sort of way, he is zealous in his affection for Alice, but there is something sinister about the story which makes the reader question whether Dylan’s motives are truly pure. It is this skepticism that kept me on edge for the entire book, wanting badly to believe that Dylan had Alice’s best interests at heart but still remaining open to the possibility that it was a darker motive behind his dominance over her.
I can’t fully explain the gothic feel of this book, which almost seemed like a ghost story, despite the fact that the characters were fully alive. I can only believe that it is due to the fact that Beth Kerry is a master at her craft, creating a story that is haunting, seductively erotic, and engrossing all at the same time. I didn’t want it to end, and I look forward to going back and reading everything else by this wonderful author.
