Poison’s Kiss (Deadly Beauties #2) by CM Owens:
Alyssa has spent her entire life naively believing things are only laid out in black or white, but now she finds herself stuck in the gray area. The inner battle she faces with her own dark power that she has denied for too long starts to brew all the more fiercely. Kane’s coldness breaks her heart even more than it’s already broken, but fate’s cruel sense of humor forces them to band together despite their torrid conflict.
The biggest problem… There are consequences she didn’t know she’d have to face after giving herself to Kane, and she finds herself in pain each and every time she’s near him. A pain that leaves her feeling like a puppet.
Hope rests on the shoulders of her enemies, and her allies pile up in all the wrong forms. When tragedy strikes, she’s faced with more dark choices to make. Everything gets twisted, and she becomes stuck in the middle of an internal game of tug-of-war. Gage is there, but he’s just as much her enemy as a night stalker. How can she trust any of them?
The world is fully of deadly beauties, and deception is their best played game. Alyssa keeps learning the hard way how true this is.

Poison’s Kiss is the second book of the paranormal Trilogy Deadly Beauties by CM Owens.
After finally finding out what Kane is, since we tried to guess from book 1 Blood’s Fury, we know he is Alyssa’s enemy.
I enjoyed the story but found myself confused when she broke her bound with Kane, with Gage. They were not together, but I did not like her messing around with Gage. I know this will be a fact that will matter in the last book, but I don’t like my heroines to belong to another man. It came to the point where I really though she might be with the dark witch instead of Kane, and it bugged me.
When Kane and Alyssa find out someone wants them framed for some murders, they all start to work together.
Dark secrets reveal themselves among their group, but how strong is this prophecy they keep retelling? Is Gage really her destined lover?
