4.5 stars A SINFUL ENCORE is the third and final instalment in Lisa Renee Jones’ contemporary, adult BRILLIANCE erotic, romantic suspense trilogy focusing on musician/violinist Kace August, and twenty eight year old collector Aria Alard. A SINFUL ENCORE should not be read as a stand alone as it picks up immediately after the events of book two A WICKED SONG. Several characters from the author’s Inside Out, Savage Trilogy, Careless Whispers, and the Walker Brothers series cross over for familiarity.
NOTE: If you have not read the previous instalments there may be some spoilers in my review.
Told from first person perspective (Aria Alard Stradivari) A SINFUL ENCORE picks up immediately after the events of book two A WICKED SONG wherein Aria’s brother Gio’s return from Europe sparked anger and mistrust for our story line couple. Gio has been on the hunt for the elusive Stradivari formula, a formula known only to the Stradivari heirs but with their father missing and presumed dead, Gio and Aria Stradivari are not the only treasure hunters searching for the sought-after formula. Gio believes he has reason to distrust our story line hero, and in doing so, brings dangers to America, placing his sister’s life in jeopardy, forcing her to run. As Aria and Kace’s relationship turns more passionate and intense, their trip to Europe is fraught with questions and new acquaintances who reveal more than anyone could have imagined.
A SINFUL ENCORE is a story of family and friendships; betrayal and revenge; secrets, lies, romance and love. The character driven premise is intriguing, engaging and fascinating; the romance is tender, spicy and erotic; the characters are spirited, edgy and energetic. Most of the conflict resolution was behind the scene so the reader is not privy to the smaller nuances. Here’s hoping the author has plans for Gio’s story. A SINFUL ENCORE and the Brilliance Trilogy is a thrilling and sensual story of love, life and happily ever after.
