As usual, the book is full of inconsistencies that boggle the mind. The biggest one in this installment is Sin's adopted uncle, Abram. Abram has been serving as The Fellowship's number two leader for years now, holding the space until Sin is ready to take up the reins and lead with his father, the current number one leader. Everyone in their little community seems to be fully aware that Abram is a potential psychopath, is power-hungry, and has no intention of letting go of the position he currently occupies. The Fellowship has a motto that is repeated several times throughout the series, "After the first betrayal, there is no other." What that means, basically, is that if someone betrays The Fellowship or one of its members, the betrayer dies. Period. However, Abram has spent all of his time in the last three books trying to kill Bleu, trying to get Sin to betray Bleu, publicly humiliating Bleu, etc. He is forgiven each and every time, because of reasons. For a bunch of hardened criminals, I found it really unrealistic for them to allow this kind of behavior to go on and on and on, no matter who it might be. Abram doesn't get his until he finally threatens to murder Sin's children.
We also had a rather bizarre situation where Bleu's sister Ellison shows up unexpectedly in Edinburgh, and circumstances force Sin and Bleu to tell her all about The Fellowship. It's made painfully clear that outsiders either need to become members or they need to die, but by the end of the third book, these supposed hardened criminals are allowing Ellison to hang out and attend Fellowship events while she figures out what she wants to do, although that's supposedly against the rules. It was weird. The author also spent an oddly large amount of time in this series harping on Ellison's former love interest and his bisexuality.
All in all, the story was decent, even with the inconsistencies and irritations. I liked it enough to finish the series, even with the despised cliffhanger endings, the bizarre harping on non-traditional relationships, and the spartan writing style. However, this author isn't one that I'll be looking for in the future.
NOTE: If you have not read the previous installments, there may be some spoilers in my review.
Told from alternating first person points of view (Bleu and Sin) the focus of the storyline follows Sinclair Breckenridge as he searches for his missing wife. As two warring Scottish mob families fight for control, a pregnant Bleu Breckenridge becomes a pawn; imprisoned by The Order while her husband struggles to free himself from jail. Upon Bleu’s rescue, Sin will assert his power and leadership, letting The Order know who is in control. Unbeknownst to Bleu, her younger sister arrives for a long term visit-the sister who is completely oblivious to Bleu’s original plan and her connections to the Scottish mob. As Blue and Sin tread lightly around Bleu’s sister, the ‘family’ makes preparations for an upcoming war.
The relationship between Bleu and Sin continues to be loving and protective. The Order has decried revenge for the death of their heir, and has set their sights on destroying the Scottish Fellowship Crime syndicate by targeting Bleu and Sin. Sin’s uncle Abram continues his plans to destroy Bleu and places his nephew in a position from which there is no return. Someone will die; and a family will mourn.
All of the supporting characters return from the previous installments wherein a number of secondary storylines play out to resolution while one in particular has yet to be resolved. Sin’s former best friend Leith destroys any hope for a happily ever after with the woman that he loves breaking Lorna’s heart and spirit in the process- I suspect a spin off series is on the horizon. There is also a slight cross over connection between Georgia Cates’s BEAUTY series with a reference to the fictional country band Southern Ophelia.
There is one issue I would like to address from ONE LAST SIN and the Sin Trilogy as a whole. A majority of the storyline action and focus from Sinclair’s POV including mob business, revenge, betrayal, violence and retribution takes place ‘behind the scenes’. The reader is excluded and never privy to many details - and in this I felt left out; forgotten; and overlooked. I had a similar issue with the author’s BEAUTY series wherein some of the troubles surfacing for Jack McLaughlin never completely came to the reader’s attention. I understand the romantic focus is on the leading couple, but much of what transpired in the background directly affected the storyline premise and it is the small details that add color and excitement. Most of the violence and graphic imagery is implied and left to the reader’s imagination.
ONE LAST SIN is an entertaining and engaging story; The Sin Trilogy will captivate and delight with its’ charismatic leading hero and the woman that he loves. There are moments of betrayal and revenge; heartbreak and pain; drama and passion wherein family is not always about blood but about the people who love you at the end of the day.
