4.25 stars-- MY BEAUTIFUL SIN is the second instalment in J. Kenner’s contemporary, adult FALLEN SAINT erotic, romantic suspense trilogy focusing on former police officer turned investigative journalist Ellie Holmes, and billionaire investor Devlin Saint. MY BEAUTIFUL SIN should not be read as a stand alone as if picks up after the events of book one MY FALLEN SAINT.
SOME BACKGROUND: Ten years after the death of her uncle Peter, former police officer turned investigative journalist Ellie Holmes returns to her home town of Laguna Cortez when the police reopen the investigation into her uncle’s murder, a return that brings Ellie face to face with her past, Alex Leto, now known as billionaire philanthropist/ investor Devlin Saint, the man who broke our heroine’s heart.
Told from first person perspective (Ellie Holmes), and third person (Devlin Saint) MY BEAUTIFUL SIN follows the rebuilding romance and relationship between former police officer turned investigative journalist Ellie Holmes, and billionaire investor / philanthropist Devlin Saint. Devlin Saint has never stopped loving our story line heroine but Devlin’s previous life was a threat to the woman he loved, so he walked away, leaving Ellie broken and destroyed. Rescuing women and children from sexual slavery is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg for our story line hero but Devlin is keeping many secrets, that if revealed, will threaten his relationship with the woman he loves. As Ellie continues to push forward, not only with the investigation into her uncle’s murder, more skeletons are revealed, including the truth behind her mother’s death, a series of unsolved murders, and the people responsible for destroying her life.
Meanwhile, Devlin struggles to protect the woman he loves while dealing with the fall-out of business dealings in Las Vegas, Nevada, leaving his friend Ronan, and most trust worthy associates to keep an eye on our story line heroine. Someone has targeted Ellie Holmes, and in this, Ellie is a little TSTL (too stupid to live) when it comes to her own safety and life, continuing to uncover that which wants to remain unknown. As the relationship between Devlin and Ellie heats up, Ellie’s best friend and roommate Brandy begins to fall for writer Christopher Doyle, a man who seems too good to be true.
MY BEAUTIFUL SIN is a story of second chances; betrayal and vengeance; secrets and lies. J. Kenner pulls the reader into a tale of friendships, relationships, family and love; unmasking, revelations, confessions and fraud. The premise is intriguing and decadent ; romance is spicy, erotic and provocative; the characters are edgy and dynamic. MY BEAUTIFUL SIN ends on a cliff hanger-you have been warned.
