The Book
Release Date: 7 July 2015
Goodreads Link

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.

My Opinion  3 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

I will admit that i did struggle to read this book. There was not that much that grabbed me and said you have to read all of this right this minute!

Both characters hid secrets and i'm not sure i liked the way that our heroine acted, especially at the beginning. Caleb showed that he could change, but he never outwardly lied to Kelly, whereas Kelly was constantly leing and manipulating Caleb.

A few issues get sorted, however the story does seem to drag on a little, with an awful lot of fucking going on. Hopefully the unresolved issues will be in the second book. Although at this point i'm not quite sure if I will be reading it.
