When the sun disappeared, the world was cast in shadows, hiding the evil that lay in wait. When it was dark, I hunted. The shadows caressed my body as I did things I could never do in the light of day.
Eighteen-year-old Bree Bowen has spent her entire life training and working as one of her father’s assassins. Fear has kept her and her best friend, Wes, under her father’s thumb—until now.
When Wes takes matters into his own hands, securing Bree a new identity and a plane ticket to America, he gives her the one chance she’s been desperately seeking.
Learning to live a new life isn’t easy. Add in her new roommate, Reid, who just happens to be a stripper, and things start to get a little crazy. Falling for a man has never been part of her plan, but she can’t seem to stay away from Reid.
When Bree’s past comes crashing back into her life, secrets that she’s fought to keep hidden are revealed, and she’s forced to choose between Reid and the life she could have with him, or Wes, the one man who has always loved her unconditionally.
Regardless of her choice, she must learn the consequences of sin.
This book will be a standalone.
I’m a big fan of K.A. Robinson so I was so excited to receive an ARC of her new novel Consequences of Sin (Thank you Thank you Thank you). This book sounded really interesting and darker than her previous works. Reading the synopsis you know that Bree is a assassin. However she is really bothered by the whole ‘killing’ thing. Enter Wes, or Hot Guy Number 1. Wes is her best friend and known her forever. He is also an assasisn. Bree is about to be abused horribly because of her family so Wes gets her a fake identity and sends her to America. Enter Hot Guy Number 2, Reid, her new roommate.
I really liked the idea that she leaves everything and has to start over with little money and not sure what to do. The whole process of her finding her own footing in a whole other country was written well.
This book seemed a little short to me. There was so much happening that I thought it could have been spread out more. Also I wish she had gotten more time to settle in, like a few months, instead of two weeks before trouble finds her. I also wanted that extra time for Reid and her relationship to develop.
What I did love was Bree’s compassion. There was also a sort-of love triangle, but not really. There was more focus on what Bree needed than the drama of a love triangle which was great! The guys actually ended up getting along, which again is something rarely found when you have a love triangle. This was a book the I did devour in one sitting! I found the story original and overall just another great read by K.A. Robinson!
