[Sweet the Sin (Revenge Saga, #1)] Read ✓ Claire Kent
This will end and what conseuences Kelly s manipulation will have on her growing relationship with Caleb Next book is scheduled for release in October and there s no tell if I ll read it then I usually wait for all parts of a serial to be released before starting because I read so many books I just can t rely on bribes of memories to fully appreciate the next oneTo conclude Sweet the Sin was a really entertaining erotica novel covering attraction and lust with a nice revenge subplot and a growing forbidden love I received an Arc in exchange for an honest review More reviews and book talk at You can find me here too Kelly is tormented by one uestion Is she committing the ultimate betrayalSweet the Sin is the first in a two part erotic series about love deception and revenge The female protagonists finds herself sleeping with a man she should loathe fear and potentially ruin as she uncovers the truth of her past Pet Artist Kelly Watson immediately drew me into her world with her disturbing history that has understandably left her with issues of trust I enjoyed her characterisation and the way her past emerges throughout the story arc She lived through hell 18 ears ago and now with her weapon of sex she may have the opportunity for her own brand of justice Caleb Marshall is a charismatic powerful business man who s used to getting exactly what and whom he wants Both protagonists prefer to satisfy their desires with one night no strings attached dalliances but in each other for their own individual reasons they see something they want of Kelly has an agenda to address and Caleb is implicitly drawn to her They share an intense physical attraction What will be the conseuence Kelly s impetus behind the story and her relationship with the male protagonist is highly intriguing and is the driving force behind the way I felt throughout There s a tinge of sadness and suspense entwined and their physical relationship is very very steamy but there are times that I didn t uite feel the intensity of their sexual chemistry partly due to the heroine s reasons for seeking out the relationship Having said that her disconnection makes total sense within the context of the story her suppressed emotions are logical but maybe this and other elements began to feel a little repetitive and detracted from my connection to the story The third person narrative traverses between Kelly and Caleb s perspective and as it began to develop revealing the story layers I began to favour the hero s point of view in the telling It felt warmer and became emotive to me whilst I experienced Kelly using HOT SEX as a means to exact her revenge There are times I relished Sweet the Sin and there are moments that if I m completely truthful my interest waned because of the repetitive nature of Kelly s thoughts and actions I began to lose faith in her motivation which felt a little frustrating because in the early stages of the story I loved her character Ultimately this story of love and revenge kept me engaged to the end and left me wanting to know how their story ends I ve a feeling that the conclusion could provide me with the angst feelings I crave Advanced copy received from the publishers via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review thoughts 35 conflicted starsLet me start this review by saying I love Claire Kent s writing style Her style of writing is very sensual very raw very honest Her characters aren t always the most lovable but they way she writes them compels ou to at least root for them To be honest I had a hard time rooting for the characters here I struggled with the constant manipulation the characters especially our heroine did in this bookKelly Watson suffered a great childhood trauma after finding her own father murdered in the woods during one of their walks After her father died her own mother abandoned her As a result Kelly had a hard time trusting people She met Caleb Marshall after mistaking him for a client of hers Caleb is much older than Kelly Mysterious powerful rich and very ruthless Their Physical Attraction And Lust For attraction and lust for other was instantaneous What Kelly didn t know was that her estranged mother had orchestrated the whole meeting with Caleb The reason Her mother strongly suspected that Caleb was involved in her husband s death ears ago Turns out Caleb is now the CEO of the pharmaceutical company that Kelly s father had worked for It s all very convoluted and the plan was for Kelly to get close to Caleb to gather evidence to indict him of her father s murder The first 10% was interesting Claire Kent doesn t give readers any warning She just drops Sarah S Seduction you right into the scene andou have to figure out the story as ou go along The connection between Kelly and Caleb was purely physical Surprisingly I wasn t annoyed by this because it was consistent with their characters After Kelly s mother revealed Caleb s involvement and her plan to use Kelly to get close to Caleb I was engrossed and I wanted to find out Unfortunately the book took a little detour for me at that point because of Kelly She became too laden with guilt and too conflicted with her feelings for Caleb that she started faking her orgasms whenever they had sex What s worse was ou get to read about her plotting and manipulating the whole thing in her head while Caleb was grunting and groaning and obviously enjoying himself It was tedious to read I found myself getting annoyed with everything I understand she s conflicted but I gotta to be honest and say that I didn t enjoy reading about that Also her mother after abandoning her came out of nowhere to basically force her to act out her plan of revenge was too convenient Kelly hates her mother and they never had that kind of relationship and et she easily went with her plan to seduce Caleb to gain information Not surprisingly Caleb was a well written fleshed out character We get to be in his head here and there Not nearly enough in my opinion but it was enough for me He is obviously not a nice guy and ou know he d done terrible things and continue to do them but he was fascinating I enjoyed reading his POV the most There are some things in his past that aren t revealed but
are teased in this book I do hope we get his full back story in the next bookAlso comparing both teased in this book I do hope we get his full back story in the next bookAlso comparing both I found Caleb to be well rounded He was vulnerable and he showed it even though it was a disadvantage to him Kelly had some vulnerable moments but it gets smothered by her guilt She did get better towards the end of the book Better in a sense that she s allowing herself to feel and there was less manipulating and maneuvering on her part The last 20% was stellar Relationship wise Kelly and Caleb have finally arrived at an understanding regarding their relationship On the intrigue front secrets are slowly being uncovered and Kelly might be in a lot trouble than she d bargained for I didn t notice until I reached the end that it s going to be another freakin CLIFFHANGERI m exaggerating a little bit because it wasn t that bad but still I d rather have the answers sooner than later And I wish the publisher indicated it somewhere that there won t be any resolution until the second book God knows putting 1 in the title doesn t cut it any Anyhoo I m looking forward to the next book I hope it s going to be about the revenge plot and their relationship not just the sex The sex was fine Hot even But after the first one it started to read the same ARC provided by LoverSwept via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. G commitment buttons he didn’t know he had Still something is wrong Despite their physical and emotional chemistry Caleb feels the fear inside of her Now the only way to keep her safe is coming clean before secrets and lies destroy their connection no matter how deep intense and addictive it may be Sweet the Sin is intended for mature audiences Includes a special message from the editor as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

Nearly twentyears later Kelly finds herself in the arms of a seductive stranger the very same man who may have ordered her father’s death And even as she plays him using hot sex as a means to revenge Kelly is tormented by one uestion Is she committing the ultimate betrayal Caleb Marshall has spent decades forging a high powered career rejecting intimacy for the convenience of fast women and cheap thrills But Kelly intrigues him pushin.

Kelly Kelly is out for revenge for the brutal murder of her father and when it turns out that herKelly is out for revenge for the brutal murder of her father and when it turns out that her night stand or accurately her one afternoon stand might be the one responsible she finds a way to gain access to him and his household on the pretense of needing his protection in order to find proof that he was the one behind it She uses sex as a weapon to gain Caleb s well maybe not trust but attention But when she finds herself unable to keep her feelings for him in the neat and tidy box she s constructed will she pull out of their burgeoning relationship I feel uite conflicted about this story I ve always liked Claire Kent s writing as she definitely excels at erotic stories and she s among my favourite authors But this is *the first time where I haven t liked the characters in uestion Kelly is a strong * first time where I haven t liked the characters in uestion Kelly is a strong confident woman uite at home with her body and her decisions regarding sex She doesn t do relationships she prefers one night stands and is uick to cut off any attempt at further contact That in itself didn t bother me but her wilful manipulation of Caleb in their relationship was not particularly attractive though it was understandable considering her motivation Caleb is also an enigma he s a powerful ruthless businessman who while he senses that Kelly is keeping secrets from him is still interested in a sexual relationship with her I m not really sure that I liked him either though he is much concerned and caring about Kelly than vice versa He is an anti hero in my eyes But then again she s an anti heroine so a somewhat perfect match for each other The sex definitely drives their relationship in both a negative and positive way While Kelly was initially attracted to Caleb on the basis of their surprisingly heated rendezvous when she finds out that he might be the man responsible for her father s murder she feels at once anger guilt and disgust So at the beginning the sex between them is uite one sided in the sense that Caleb thinks Kelly is really into it and Kelly is not but is trying to forge a connection between them by using sex When she actively engages with him sexually again it s not at all like their first uninhibited time together and ou could feel her mentally gritting her teeth at putting herself in this position I m sure this is the first time that I ve read a sex scene where the heroine is actively trying NOT to get turned on by the hero But by midway she s finding that she is actually enjoying it much to her guilt and they try different scenarios where she discovers that the rougher Caleb is the turned on she gets As their relationship progresses she finds that and she is engaged in what they are doing and unable to keep her attraction to him from overwhelming her when they are in bed together Caleb on the other hand can sense that things aren t always right between them He knows she is holding back from him emotionally and works to fix that It s a constant power struggle She knew what he was doing It was still the same challenge Get her to lose control get her to beg She wasn t going to give into it no matter how her body was responding to him no matter how much she needed him to think she was fully into thisSo she bit her lip again refusing to give him what he wanted even as the pleasure kept tightening into a coil inside herAsk me he growled fucking her hard and fast and in a way her body desperately neededShe whimpered still trying to resist needing In the first novel in USA Today bestselling author Claire Kent’s deeply sensual story of love lust and deception a woman searching for the truth discovers that she’s sleeping with the enemy Portrait artist Kelly Watson keeps her relationships simple and steamy with no strings attached She’s had a hard time trusting other people since she was a child when her father was murdered for trying to blow the whistle on corporate corruption.
