ARC REVIEW - A Necessary Sin (The Sin Trilogy #1) by Georgia Cates

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.

The Next Sin – Release Date – Feb 9th, 2015

One Last Sin – Release Date – March 23, 2015

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.

Georgia resides in rural Mississippi with her wonderful husband, Jeff, and their two beautiful daughters. She spent fourteen years as a labor and delivery nurse before she decided to pursue her dream of becoming an author and hasn’t looked back yet.

When she’s not writing, she’s thinking about writing. When she’s being domestic, she’s listening to her iPod and visualizing scenes for her current work in progress. Every story coming from her always has a song to inspire it.

Well, this book pulled me in from the first page and didn't let go until I got to the end. And talk about a cliffhanger, I'm just glad I don't have to wait that long to find out what's going to happen next.

Bleu is nothing if not determined in her quest for revenge, and she's pretty kick-ass about it. Sin is twelve kinds of Scottish hot, and from their initial meeting, the chemistry between Bleu and Sin is off-the-freakin' charts sizzly.

What I liked about Bleu is that yes, she is determined to seek revenge, but it's not like she's going in blind without a clue about what to do and not having a Plan B. She had everything meticulously planned, but was able to roll with the punches and change course if an unknown variable threw a monkey wrench in her plans.

I'll admit I was a bit suprised when the truth was let out about Sin's father and Bleu's mother, I didn't think it would have been that type of connection. Which now brings about the question as to who is really responsible for what happened all those years ago. I have a feeling about it, but at the same time that would be the obvious choice. That's pretty much all I'm going to say, because I don't want to post any spoilers. All I can say for certain is that I'm ready for book 2 now!!!
