Synopsis: 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.
I was really excited about this book when I first heard about it! All I had to go on was the synopsis, but that sealed the deal that I was definitely going to read it lol! I've also read quite a few of this author's other books and loved them, so I knew this book was going to be amazing! And then I saw the cover for this book! As if I needed something else to make me want it more lol! It I freaking loved this book! As soon as I stared reading it, I couldn't put it down until I had finished it! I was reading it every opportunity I got! It totally blew me away and I got through it in a few sittings! The plot was amazing! It was full of action, romance and suspense, which I loved! These three things make a plot for me, so I was really happy that they were all in this book! The plot was also developed at the perfect pace and the action and suspense were written brilliantly and the romance was seriously hot! I couldn't actually fault anything with the plot lol! Everything about it was amazing! The characters were just as amazing as the plot! Bree was the main character, and I actually felt really sorry for her in this book! All she wanted was to be free and live her life the way she wanted, but instead she was controlled by her father and she had to become a killer, which I could see was the last thing she wanted too be! Bree came a long way in this book though! She got her freedom and she was able to live without looking over her shoulder and do what she wanted with her life! I just loved Bree! She was a pretty kick-ass character and she could hold her own, which impressed me! She was really likeable as well and I connected brilliantly with her! Reid was the love interest of Bree, and he was seriously hot! And a stripper... Yep, you read that right lol! To me, this made him even hotter lol! I wish there were a few more stripper scenes though ;) I loved Reid! He was such a genuine guy who really was put in the middle of a very dangerous situation! He handled it really well though! Reid also reacted the exact same way I would have when he found out Bree's secrets! I liked that he gave her the chance to explain herself and that he was always there for her though it all! It told me a lot about the kind of guy he was! There was a bit of a love triangle in this book between Bree, Reid and Bree's best friend, Wesley! I was expecting this love triangle to become more apparent as the book developed, and it was! It wasn't the main focus of the plot though, which I loved, but the love triangle added a lot to the plot! I'm really sad that this book is a standalone! The ending was left at the perfect place and there weren't any unanswered questions, so I can understand why it is! The cover for this book suits it perfectly! I knew it was going too after I saw it, but after reading the book, I can see just how perfect it is! I absolutely love it! Big thank you to K.A. Robinson for an ARC of The Consequences of Sin and to Book Addict Mumma for having me on the Blog Tour!
