Sweet the Sin ARC review

What did I think of...

Sweet the Sin by Claire Kent

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. Nearly twenty years 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 question: 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, pushing 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.

Sweet the Sin was amazing! I'm going to be honest, and say I didn't expect to like it nearly as much as I did, maybe three stars-ish was the expectation, but I found myself captivated from the beginning, with the intriguing plot and characters.

The plot had me absolutely captivated... and I was intrigued from the first word, "Kelly"...

Nope. That did not have the dramatic effect I had hoped.
The characters in this story very real. They were conflicted, confused, angry and completely flawed. At times, I have to admit, they were not even that likable. That being said, this book had an impact on me, nonetheless.
I'm unsure I can really even tell you why this book was so impactful with me, why all these characters resonated with me, and why it took me two freaking weeks to write this review.
Claire Kent did a beautiful job writing this book, and I'm eagerly awaiting the sequel!
