An epic tale of revenge and love in a new romantic trilogy from the New York Times best-selling author of The Beauty Series.
Bleu MacAllister is in hiding less than three months when Sinclair Breckenridge discovers her whereabouts. Her former lover, the future leader of a criminal organization known as The Fellowship, resists the tug of his heart heartstrings in her direction. Instead, he opts to watch over his beloved from afar. And she has no idea. But Sin’s sacrifice is short-lived. His bonny lass is a hunted traitor. He fears Abram’s assassins are closing in, leaving him with one solution for saving Bleu–make her his wife. Marriage seems an easy fix for their dilemma but wedded bliss is brief when the couple finds trouble lying in wait beyond the realm of the brotherhood. Will the original revenge seeker find herself the object of collateral damage?
To start off- if you haven’t read the first book, A Necessary Sin, then DON’T read this review- it may contain spoilers. Also this is the 2nd book in the Sin Trilogy and is not a stand-alone. These books need to be read in order!
To briefly recap book one- after witnessing a horrific event in her childhood, Bleu McAllister has made it her lifelong goal to get justice and maybe a little revenge against the monster that changed her life. But in pursuit of her vengeance, she never factored in falling in love with Sinclair Breckenridge the “monsters” son.
This book picks up pretty much where A Necessary Sin left off, with Bleu heading back home after Sin discovers who she really is and what her true intentions are.
It’s now three months later and although her life-long need for revenge is still there, her need for Sin is even stronger. When Sin finally finds her, he proposes doing the only thing possible to keep her safe from The Fellowship and still have her in his life.
“Any man can see the good inside your. But what you need is one who sees the bad and loves you anyway. That’s me.”
This series and especially this book had a little bit of everything. You get a forbidden love story of sorts, plenty of action and suspense, swoon-worthy moments and of course a HOLY crap ending. Yes folks we have a cliffy! But then this is a trilogy so what did you really expect? Thankfully, Georgia has no plans to keep us hanging for long, since the third and final book in the series will be out in just over a month!! I can’t wait.
“I love you, my sweet Bonny Bleu.”
I’m in the background of Bleu’s life, as I have been for weeks. I have eyes on her at all times, even when they’re not my own. I safeguard her from harm. It’s all I’ve done since tracking my lass down in a small town in Mississippi, right outside of Memphis. I act as her protector from afar and she has no idea. She believes she’s hidden from The Fellowship—and me—but she couldn’t be more wrong. I’m always here, keeping a watchful eye on her and the MacAllister family.
I often need to be reminded that this is Bleu’s world. Every person she has contact with isn’t a threat but there’s an enormous problem with that. I have no idea who’s friend or foe.
I was concerned when Bleu disappeared at the bar with a man earlier tonight. I was on the verge of barging into the back until my lass came out on stage to perform with the band. I don’t think I’ve ever been so surprised in all my life. I knew she played but I never pegged her for a public performer. That doesn’t seem like my Bonny at all.
But I guess I don’t really know the real Bleu MacAllister. I only know the woman she pretended to be.
