REVIEW - Sinful Intent (ALFA PI #1) by Chelle Bliss

Title: Sinful Intent 
Series: ALFA PI Book #1 
Release Date: July 14th 
Author: Chelle Bliss

The moment I saw her, I wanted her. I tried to resist her, but Race had other plans. 

One night, in a moment of weakness, I gave in to my desires. I still had a job to do before her world collapsed. If I failed at finding the person behind the threats, I could lose her forever. 

Temptation can be dangerous.


So I met the Gallo family last year and fell in love with each and every one of them (even Izzy, and she annoyed me lol). So I was super excited that even though this is a new series, we still get the Gallo family and all the love and insanity they bring to each book, and this one does not disappoint.

I wasn't quite sure what type of character Morgan was going to be; he's ex-military and most times in books ex-military are always all cynical and brooding and standoffish to the point you want to kick them in the knee with a stiletto. I'm happy to say that Morgan isn't like that. He's trying to figure out the next phase of his life after the military when he and his mom Fran journey from Chicago to Tampa for Izzy's and James' wedding. Lucky for him, Thomas and James are looking to hire for their firm ALFA PI and Morgan has the qualifications. So boom! Now Morgan is back in Florida with his family ready to start the next chapter in life.

His first case is figuring out who has been blackmailing Race True, a young woman who exudes a serious ice princess demeanor, since she is on the fast track to a big promotion in the corporate world. And while Morgan has every intention of not botching his very first job with the PI firm, that intention falls by the wayside the more time he and Race spend together. I enjoyed the interactions between Morgan and Race, it was interesting watching her learn to let go and let Morgan be there to help her. And their sexy times we classic Chelle Bliss: plenty of panty-melting sexy times, but just enough to balance out the story.

I wasn't surprised by who the blackmailer was, but the reason why they were blackmailing her was unexpected (at least for me). The resulting fallout from that is what caused the angst between Race and Morgan, and I loved who it was that came to the rescue to help patch things up between them. Of course, even though Morgan solved the case, he didn't really feel like a full-fledged member of the PI firm until the christening of his office lol.

ARC provided in exchange for honest review.

“You’re really purdy,” she slurred with a lopsided grin, running her finger down my cheek.
“That’s it. No more drinks for you,” I said, dragging the glass away from her.
“No! I’ve only had three,” she said as she lurched forward, pulling the drink out of my hands. “I’m enjoying myself. I’ve had a bitch of a week and I deserve to let loose a little.”
I held my hands up. “You’ve actually had four martinis, but anything you want, princess.” Her eyes grew into little slits. “I’m not your princess,” she slurred, sounding completely adorable. My cheeks hurt as I smiled. “I’m going to take you home now. I think you need to sleep it off.”
“Last time I checked,” she said before hiccupping, “you’re not my daddy.”
A slow smile crept across her face. She scooted closer and whispered, “Unless that’s your thing.” She tried to wink, but both eyes closed, one after the other. I leaned into her space, a breath away from her lips.
“It’s not my thing, but I’m happy to act out your fantasies. But I don’t think you want to cross that line. Once you go there, there’s no going back.” I stared into her eyes.
“Oooh.” Her eyes grew wide. “Is that supposed to scare me, Mr. DeLuca?”
 I didn’t move. “I’m just giving you fair warning. You’ve had a few drinks, and I won’t take advantage of that. I’m just telling you how it is.”
“You’re full of yourself.” Her warm, sweet breath caressed my lips as she spoke. All I wanted to do was reach out, pull her face to mine, and kiss her full, beautiful lips. “I’m sure of myself and confident in my abilities, yes. That’s entirely different than being full of myself.” I licked my lips, testing her. Her eyes dropped to my mouth as her lips parted.
 “Another?” Lisa interrupted. “We’re good,” I replied, keeping my eyes pinned to Race and waving Lisa off. “Pfft,” Lisa scoffed, stomping away.
Race glared in Lisa’s direction. “She wants you,” she whispered.
Was she jealous? “I don’t want her.”
“She’s a sure thing though.” I leaned closer, leaving very little space between us. “I never liked easy.”
“All men like easy.” Her body swayed, moving so close our lips almost brushed.
