Book: Sexy as Sin
Series: Filthy Rich #2
Author: Julie Kriss
Release date: 3 December 2019
Main characters: Ava Winters, fashion stylist and Aidan Winter’s sister; Dane Scotland, Aidan’s best friend and co-founder of Tower VC group.
The assignment should be a fashion stylist’s dream. Dane Scotland—brilliant programmer, millionaire, partner in my brother’s company—is going to a big-money meeting, and he needs to look the part.
The problem? Dane doesn’t want a makeover. He’s grumpy and reclusive, and his wardrobe consists of two pairs of old jeans. He doesn’t want me anywhere near him.
Did I mention that he’s my brother’s best friend? And that no one knows exactly what Dane and I got up to ten years ago?
The nerd I knew is gone—Dane ditched his glasses and bulked up. Now he’s six-foot-plus of hot genius, but I can be professional. I can definitely keep my hands off him. Again.
But when he looks at me like he used to, like no one else ever has, the only thing I want is to lose control.
Dane and I gave each other our first taste of heartbreak. Are we destined for another round?
Why you should read it: my, my, my! This series keeps getting better and better, hotter and hotter! I loved Filthy Rich for its dialogue and characters with depth and Sexy as Sin is no different. Dane and Ava have history – and this makes their story so intriguing and hot. There’s pathos, there’s pain and there’s yearning. I loved this story and I devoured it in hours. Ava is damaged but not broken. She’s determined to sort out her life before pursuing anything with Dane. Dane is a pretty straightforward character. He hides his vulnerability under his surly exterior, but he feels plenty. What can I say? I didn’t want the book to end!
Dane’s arm came around my waist and a growl came from his throat. He’d never made that sound before—possessive, primal, male. I shivered at the sound of it. But his free hand came down over mine, stopping its progress. “You know what I want,” he said roughly, his voice low. “You, in a bed. All mine. No one around and no time limits. So I can do anything to you I want, for as long as I want.” He let go of me, slid back, his heat leaving me. “Nothing else will ever fucking do.” And with that, Dane stood and silently left the room.
What you may not like: It was over too quickly! Nah, it was just right. I don’t have a single negative thing to say about this story. Just bring on more of this stellar series!
Rating: 5/5 for a truly enjoyable read. Next up is Samantha’s sister Emma and bad boy Noah’s story in Dirty Talk…
