This is the story of a man falling in love with a woman.
A man that was supposed to be a role model, and a woman that was just barely twenty-one.
A man who should’ve known better, and a woman that didn’t know that she was destroying his career word by word, innocent touch by innocent touch, smile by smile, until it had already imploded.
The world collapses around Absinthe ‘Sin’ Solomon, and the only thing he can do is try not to take her down with him.
The moment the inevitable happens, and the gavel bangs signaling that he will spend the next nine years in prison for attempted murder, Sin tries to let go. But Blaise Mackenzie has never, not ever, been one to give up without a fight.
Her military career might be over, but her career as a prison guard is just about to get started.
And her favorite prisoner? A pissed-off older man, a drill sergeant dishonorably discharged from the Army that tells himself daily that the new ‘Kitty Kitty’ female prison guard is not for him.
After following him around for years, watching over him from afar in any way she can, Sin is released early. And the first person that he’s going to see? A stubborn little blonde-headed female that should’ve known better than to trust a man like him.
So obsessed with this series and these characters!
So obsessed with this series and these characters! Much like the previous books in this series, I have truly become obsessed with the premise of each main character’s backstory, and this book was no exception! Blaise was always a strong kid, and when she decided to go into the armed forces after high school not one person batted an eye, but her family had someone on the inside, Sin, looking out for her. When he first laid eyes on Blaise, Sin was enamored with her, but he also noticed another person feeling the same way, someone who wasn’t a good person, and when that person tried to attack her, Sin launched into the action that caused him to lose his career (although he wouldn’t change that for the world). Years later, Blaise has made it her mission to follow Sin and get as close to him as possible by working at the jail, and while they keep their distance, he continues to protect her at all costs, and before he gets out of jail something happens that changes both their lives and helps them to finally act on what’s been bubbling up for years. This book had me on the edge of my seat, especially after finding out that Blaise’s attacker lived in the same town as them, and I truly didn’t see the book going where it did – but it was SO GOOD! Needless to say, I can’t get enough of LLV’s books, and I can’t get enough of this series, and I am dying for Zach’s book!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Blaise and Sin
If you have been reading this series, you have met Sin as he is one of Lynn's team of former jailbirds he got pardoned so they could help him with the human trafficking ring. Sin is Coke's younger brother from Ain’t Doin’ It The Simple Man Series, Book 4.
This is Sin's story, and he is paired with Blaise Mackenzie, who is Silas granddaughter (Counter to My Intellligence The Heroes of the Dixie Wardens MC®, Book 7) and Johnny's sister (Get You Some The Simple Man Series Book 3)and Sebastien and Baylee's daughter (Lights to My Siren The Heroes of the Dixie Wardens MC®, Book 1).
If you have been reading this series you know that Lynn brought the guys together to form a team to combat human trafficking of children in his small Texas town.In many of the past books in this series they were very light on this side story bit in this book we see the fight against human trafficking take more of a center stage in this story.
The book starts at the beginning with Sin and Blaise when they meet each other for the first time and what happens that lands him in jail. This story also has a slight military angle as thats where Sin and Blaise first meet. He is a bit older than her and is closer to 40 and she is in her mid twenties.
It was a really awesome story and I loved that it had so much action in relation to the trafficking angle of this story. I also adored Sin and Blaise's romance and story. And I adored all the connections they had to other characters in the authors series'.
I received a complimentary early release copy of this e-book from the author prior to release and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Another LLV couple to love
Once again Lani Lynn Vale has captured my heart with her amazing characters in Kitty Kitty.
If you want steam, some suspense and good laughs, this book is definitely for you. It will be a highlight on your summer reading list.
Sun and Blaise definitely do not have a conventional relationship…at all! These two meet. and continue their relationship in a very odd way. But though all their ups and downs they make it work for them.
Get ready to laugh and shed a tear, but most of all get ready to fall in love with another amazing LLV couple!
