RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW - Conceited (Crimson Elite #3) by T.L. Smith

Title: Conceited
Series: Crimson Elite Book 3
Author: T.L. Smith
Genre: Romance (standalone)
Release Date: April 16, 2019


I would like to say we were old lovers. That once upon a time he was my everything, and I was his, but that would be a lie. He may have been mine, but I wasn’t his. I was his sister’s annoying little friend who he didn’t even know was in love with him.

Years later, after seeing him again for the first time, nothing has changed. Except now he notices me, and I will do everything in my power to avoid him. Because Falcon is the most conceited man on this planet, and because when he looks at me with steel eyes, my heart still misses a beat.


I get what I want, and I’m never denied anything either. It’s my charm. It’s hard to say no to something you never knew you desired until I’m standing in front of you. That’s not just who I am, it’s what I do. I help men achieve everything they have ever wanted.

Most people would go to great lengths to be near me. Yet, my sweet Ariel, I can’t even get her to stay in the same room as me. Maybe it’s because I told her I would be the best lay of her life—that has to be it—and once I’m finished with her, she’s avoiding being disappointed by every other man for the rest of her life.

It couldn’t possibly be anything else, because let’s face it, I’m perfect.

Another solid story featuring the mysterious and enigmatic men behind the city's most exclusive and secretive sex club Crimson Elite. This time it's Falcon's turn in the hot seat and his story is by far the most entertaining with a mix of suspense as the possibility of the club being exposed.

It was easy to get into this particular story as there's plenty of history between Falcon and Ariel as they've known each other for a few years, since Falcon is the older brother to Ariel's best friend Tracey. There's plenty of chemistry between the two, no matter how much they deny it. Well, not deny, just don't want to acknowledge there could be a possibility of something....more. Ariel swears she hates Falcon after what happened years earlier.

Falcon is the epitome of cocky, but yet it's not an arrogant sort of cocky; he's the kind of man that you're drawn to him while simultaneously rolling your eyes at the stuff he says, but it works for him. Except for Ariel. He makes no apology for who he is; if he did, he wouldn't be the cocky guy we've come to embrace throughout this series. He comes across as someone who doesn't take anything in life seriously, but once you see what he did for his sister tells you he's got far more depth than is realized.

I really liked Ariel's character, she's got plenty of sass and is able to keep right up with Falcon, most of the time (his cockiness does throw her off sometimes). I do wish there was more info about why she was researching the particular story for her job.
