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.
This story had me intrigued in the beginning. There was some questionable moments throughout, but over all it was a good read. I actually can’t wait for the next book to come out to find out some answers.
Kelly never does relationships, and has problems with commitment.
Caleb wants to live life just as a day to day basis, with no real need to “be attached” to anyone. He is married to his work life.
I really enjoyed the enemy to lover experience. The character build is amazing, and the story plot has a lot of twists and turns. It is definitely a page tuner, and something you will be wanting to know more of. This is the first book I have read by Claire Kent, and I can’t wait to read more.
