You can see from the blurb what the premise of the story is. I will try and not write spoilers in my review.
Our heroine, Crystal Stephens is beautiful, smart, funny, sassy, and owns and runs her L.A. based magazine, All Things L.A.. She’s fresh out of a relationship that ended on good terms and has been craving a darker, more satisfying kind of pleasure in her personal life. That’s where Pure Sin comes in. The newest hottest sex club in downtown Santa Monica.
One night while at the gym, Crystal meets Jackson Barnes. He is the total package and is a hot as hell detective in Santa Monica. He’s formally from Chicago but moved to LA after a series of unfortunate events..
They agree to meet up at Pure Sin and get to know each other more. She of course will be accompanied by her “sisters for life”, Chassity and April. They met back in college and have been inseparable since.
There are a mixed bag of supporting characters that make this story so great and worth reading. There’s Jeffrey, Crystal’s best friend and ex lover. He’s a sweetheart. Their relationship is very special to the both of them. Then there’s Stephanie, Crystal’s executive Assistant. Charlene, the temp and Mina the cringe-worthy psychopath wreaking havoc on Crystal and Jackson’s relationship. I mean really, the author hit the motherload when she wrote that sick twist’s character. Man, I loved hating her. She’s just so deranged. Sorry…. No spoilers.
The author delivers a trifecta with Love Hurts. It’s jam packed with;
~spine tingling suspense and
~hot as hell, curl your toes, get me a cold drink and/or shower sexytime.
I love bits of comedy in my romances, even the dark ones. Ms. James has a flair for comedy I’ll tell you that. Some of my favorite parts of this story were the one-liners delivered by Chassity and April and involved tapping an a** and another involving beating your a** and lastly one involved a finger. I’m still giggling thinking about those backside/frontside/finger one-liners.
One of my other favorite parts in the story was how Crystal and Jackson met. I was laughing out loud and you will too. Honestly, it’s your worst nightmare of meeting someone at the gym.
So much of what happens in this story made me very happy with this book. There is humor, instant chemistry, a psycho suspense element, undercover aspect and a lost partner and a juicy twist. Throw in hot nasty sexytime and ching ching ching….. We have the makings of an AMAZING story and that’s exactly what the author delivered. She was made for story telling and I couldn’t be more happy for her.
Although I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book, I also pre-ordered my own copy.
This debut erotic romance by Thetta James, is jalapeno hot hot hot! If you're in the mood for some serious burn and want to ignite, keep a icy cold drink handy, or better yet a fire extinguisher and take your chances. Why?
because LOVE HURTS is a 5-STAR read that was FANTASTIC....... and super sizzling 🔥 hot....... and just so good.
IT'S PURE SIN!
I loved how Thetta has set up the next two parts of the trilogy so smoothly with mystery as well as intrigue to follow! I'll be looking forward to reading about April and Chassity both!!
You got this, Thetta!!❤
This may be Thetta James' first book but you couldn't tell from the writing. This woman knows how to tell a story and will be taking the writing world by storm. Love Hurts is definitely one of my top reads of 2020. #2020TopRead
There is suspense that is well-paced throughout the book. Thetta James' writing style enhances the story. I was engrossed in the book and am looking forward to reading the next installment to the trilogy. Kudos to Thetta James!
Crystal and Jackson have an instant attraction that quickly turns to love but in between the attraction and love, they endure an overwhelming amount of emotions.
Joy and sorrow... pleasure and pain... secrets and lies... vengeance and heartbreak... trust and forgiveness... and some very steamy, kinky, hot sex! Yes, Love Hurts has it all!!!
What a start to the Pure Sin Trilogy!!! Thetta James stepped up to the plate and knocked it out of the park with this one. I can't wait to see what comes next!

Love Hurts immediately gripped me and I felt so comfortable with Ms James’ writing style. Insta-love casts a spell on Crystal and Jackson and their journey has all the feels. I love it when characters invade my mind when real life interrupts my reading time, and Crystal and Jackson were never far from my thoughts. Relatable, likeable with normal human faults, they are both memorable and together, captivating. Their connection is intense and beautifully steamy.
I particularly loved the suspense that was perfectly weaved throughout. Events that provoke strong emotions, combined with clever storytelling, this book had me gasp out loud and mirror the feelings that the characters were experiencing.
Love Hurts is a powerful story that will be forever remembered and I look forward to reading more from Thetta.
