Sinner's Game by J. Kenner - ARC Review & Release Blitz

Sinner's Game by J. Kenner is now live!

What's more dangerous--a killer attraction that breaks all the rules, or the true killer who's closing in?

Security consultant Ronan Thorne might be sex on a stick, but that doesn't mean I should want him. After all, I'm Brandy Bradshaw, the Girl With the Worst Luck With Men. As for that one kiss we shared? That was nothing but a drunken mistake between friends. I know perfectly well that Ronan's not a relationship guy. He's got dark edges and dangerous secrets and so many scars.

But when I find my landlord dead in my living room, shot with a single bullet to the head, Ronan's the man I cling to. I feel safe in his arms, and he has the skills to figure out what's happening.

Except what he learns is that a case of mistaken identity has made me the next target.

Now we're on the run together, but I'm not prepared for the heat that flares between us, or the tantalizing things he does to my body when we give in to temptation. He soothes my fear by showing me a different type of danger, sensuous and wild. It's miraculous and wonderful, but terrifying, too. Because as soon as we catch the killer, I'm afraid Ronan will leave. And when he does, I know my heart will shatter.

From the New York Times bestselling author who brought you Damien Stark comes a sexy and suspenseful romance between a woman in jeopardy and the reluctant hero determined to save the girl but not lose his heart.

This one was a lot of fun. It does have characters who appear in previous books, and does reference some of those events, but it's done in a way that if you haven't read the books, you are still fully able to follow along with the events in this story, as it's focus is on things that happen on the page in this book.

Brandy and Ronan have a connection, and when he is not focusing on the reasons why they can't be together (and, well, he kind of has a pretty good one) his attraction to Brandy is one that he really doesn't want to fight.

The problem? He knows he should, or at least he believes he should. This makes him willing to be the guy who has a one night stand, but not a relationship. Due to things in her past (which are explained well enough for you to understand her) Brandy needs a relationship, to be able to trust any man that she is intimate with.

Through the events of the book, which I won't spoil, both come to see that they want to be together, as well as find themselves willing to see where things might lead if they end up giving in to what the other wants.

I thought this was really realistic. I think we have all been in places, and situations (even those that aren't romantic) where you find yourself needing something from someone that they are not able to give...so the decision becomes whether you adapt to meet them where they are, or let that potential stay unrealized. Neither choice is necessarily wrong, but it's at the crux of the relationship between Ronan and Brandy.

I was definitely engaged with the story and the characters, and I recommend this title.
