Bleu MacAllister is consumed. A horrific childhood incident has caused every decision in her life to revolve around bringing a monster to justice. With years spent studying The Fellowship, an organized crime brotherhood of liars, thieves, and killers, Bleu will rely on her skills as a special agent to cut Thane Breckenridge off at the knees. But walking hand in hand with retribution means risking collateral damage, in the form of Breckenridge’s son Sinclair—until Sin becomes so much more than Bleu bargained for. She’s always known this undertaking would place her life in danger—she never imagined her heart would be as well.
Georgia Cates has nailed it with this book and it was the perfect start to a new series. I fell crazy in love with "A Necessary Sin", quickly becoming so addicted that it was almost impossible for me to put my kindle down. This was a story that started out as a mission for revenge but turned into an epic love story that had heartbreak written all over it. I was hooked.
My dreams weren't of becoming the doctor to discover the cure for cancer or
becoming the first female president; they were consumed by dark, vengeful thoughts.
At a very young age, Bleu MacAllister experienced a dreadful event that had left her irrevocably damaged. From that moment, her life was spent preparing for revenge. Bleu was out for blood and she was not going to stop until she had it and after years of training, she was ready to put her plans into action. However what she didn't plan for was meeting Sinclair Breckenbridge. Falling in love with him would be a dangerous mistake but could she stop the inevitable from happening? I couldn't wait to find out.
I knew there was a possibility I might have to get into bed with the enemy, but I had no idea
I'd be this electrified by doing so. It makes me feel dirty. But I like it. And I shouldn't.
I loved the main characters in this story. They quickly made a big impact on me and I can see Bleu and Sin easily becoming one of my favourite book couples by the end of the series. Bleu was a fierce, feisty, kick ass heroine. I loved this girl from the very beginning. My heart went out to her and I could completely understand her need for revenge. I loved watching Bleu change from a trained killer out for retribution into a women who was head over heels in love. It was a joy to see how Bleu was so happy with Sin. The only downside was that I found it impossible to fully relax as I knew that their happiness was sure to be short lived. There was no way that this couple were going to get a happy ending. Not when she was involved with someone as deadly as Sin Breckenridge.
I'm supposed to be sickened by his touch, so why am I desperate to have more of it?
Sin was the perfect combination of light and shade. Danger surrounded him, he was a man that oozed risk and dynamite but he also oozed sex and deliciousness. Underneath his darkness was a man who could sweep you off your feet, he sure did me! I loved how Sin reacted to Bleu. She turned his world upside down. He was a man who did not chase women but where Bleu was concerned he was prepared to run a marathon. How could Bleu resist? Sin fell hard for Bleu and I swooned with delight at how he cherished and protected her. He made my heart flutter. Underneath all that danger stood a man with a man with a heart of gold. Sigh!!
Together Bleu and Sin made the most perfect couple. I adored watching their relationship develop. Bleu was exactly the type of woman that Sin needed in his life. She was not afraid to challenge him and kept him on his toes refusing to shy away from the ugly side of him and his lifestyle. Bleu became Sin's partner in every possible way. They had it all going on including some amazingly hot sex. I would have given my right arm to be Bleu MacAllister.
He's a thief who stole something much more precious than ever before-my heart.
The story itself, although a little predictable, pulled me in and captivated me throughout. It was exciting, passionate and frightening. My heart was in my mouth and my stomach was churning as I feared what would happen to Bleu and Sin. I had a very bad feeling about this story and I dreaded the end. Not only did this book leave me with a painful cliffhanger but I was also suffering from a major book hangover. I need it to be February for more than just the Fifty Shades of Grey movie!!! LOL.
"We're going to be volatile. We should prepare now for this to end badly."
"We're damned from the start."
"A Necessary Sin" gets ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ from me!
Sinclair Breckenridge’s POV:
“I’m in the business of boundaries and limits. I’m aware of what mine are and how far I’m willing to go to get my job accomplished. It can include lying and sometimes stealing.” I wait a moment for driving the last nail into the coffin. “And perhaps the occasional killing.”
“How do you feel when you do those things?”
“Powerful.” I purposely choose that word because it’s the one she used to describe how she felt when she brought Duff to his knees. I want her to see just how similar we are.
She watches out the window for a minute before speaking again. “Do you like the way it feels?”
I can’t lie. I get a high from it. “Very much.”
Another minute passes. “Okay.”
What? “Just … okay?”
“Would you like me to be horrified?” she asks. “I can do that if it would make you feel better or improve your opinion of me.”
She’s no fucking Pollyanna. So I guess there’s no reason for her to pretend to be. “No. Okay works for me.”
I’m not sure if I should be disturbed by her lack of appall. It feels like a double standard to be shocked by an absence of dismay.
My God, has the pot met the kettle? “I wish I could get inside your head.”
“No, you don’t,” she says. “My mind is a dark place to be.”
I think I may have met the perfect woman. In her eyes, I’m not a monster at all.
