“You can’t beat the devil if you don’t play his game.”
This book is what I call “car crash reading.” Drama, drama, drama, drama and some more drama, but hell it was addictive. This was one of those books where you knew you should give up the ghost because these characters were all seriously effed up. I mean, there was not one “normal” person in this book. If this is what the music industry does to people, why the hell would you work there?
But, in all honesty, I couldn’t put this book down. Marriage is definitely not a sacred vow, anyone is game no matter where they are sitting or currently are, back stabbing is rife and considered the norm, friendships mean absolutely nothing and family ties are stretched to their limits. Everyone in this book was toxic in one way or another and if you were under the Devil’s Music umbrella you became toxic too. The walls bled poison and this poison was extremely potent.
“Transparency’s a luxury in the entertainment industry…”
Devil’s Music is a record label steeped in history and the majority shareholding was left to Delilah Bishop after the death of her father. Delilah lived and breathed Devil’s Music, it was her baby, what she lived for, until those closest to her did the unthinkable and took it away from her. Delilah went downhill fast, but now back on her feet, she is out for revenge and she is taking no prisoners.
Dante Bishop is Delilah’s brother, he walked away from Devil’s Music while he still had a chance. The company had drained him dry both physically and emotionally and the icing on the cake was the demise of his relationship with Chelsea, the current COO of Devil’s Music. She betrayed him in the worse possible way and he still hasn’t gotten over it, or her. His sister now wants what it is rightfully hers and she is asking him to go back into the lion’s den all in the name of revenge, both hers and his.
“There’s no line to straddle. You’re either on her side or mine. And…I’ve got no one but you. This isn’t just about business. It’s about family. So be sure you’re good with the consequences on reneging on me for that b***h.”
Sin for Me is like a soap opera with a slim picking of a second chance romance. You need to keep your wits about you as Lisa Marie Perry hits you from all angles with sexual relations, jealousy, under hand dealings, huge ego’s and a failing music label. Loyalties are tested, deals are made but can you take anyone at face value? Does everyone have a hidden agenda? Is everyone hiding behind a façade and living a lie?
This book was like crack and with that ending I am certainly a Devil’s Music junkie. I seriously need book two and cannot wait to see what the hell is going on.
I know that the blurb compares this book to Empire (which I haven’t watched yet) but I think that it would be more fitting to compare it to maybe The Bold and The Beautiful. Or Days of Our Lives. Because it read just like a soap opera. And I LOVED it.
I am going to probably be hated for saying this but I actually like Delilah Bishop. She was brutally honest and would do anything to save Devil’s Music because it was in her blood. Also, I don’t blame her for flipping out when she found out that Emma, Joshua and Chelsea has conspired to take Devil’s Music from her. I would have too. But she did go a tad nuts when she found out. I mean, setting the boardroom on fire and bringing a gun to Emma and Joshua’s 1st anniversary celebration….kinda nuts.
The one person I couldn’t stand was Joshua. Talk about a man with secrets. He bangs Delilah, bareback, and then he allows her to give him a handjob when they were begging her to help them to keep Devil’s Music from going under. He has no shame in allowing Chelsea see him get a handjob from Delilah and a blow job from Emma. Plus, he had sex with Lex, bareback. Which made me question if he had a death wish and wonder if he hadn’t heard of STD’s…..lol. Besides the sex stuff, he just came across as a jerk. Saying that, though, he did have a soft spot for Chelsea and, like Emma, was very concerned about her mental well-being.
Emma ranked right above Joshua. Something just didn’t seem right with her. What sane woman would be alright with her husband thinking and making decisions (or so it seemed to me) with his dick? Unless she had an ulterior motive going on. But, that aside, she seemed to be a very good friend to Chelsea and was very concerned about her mental well-being.
Chelsea was a hot mess. She was in love with Dante Bishop, Delilah’s brother, and he broke up with her….while having sex. In her words, he broke her. So, she now uses sex as a way to release tension…instead of self harming…which she used to do. She used to heat up hair pins and stick them in herself. If she can’t get sex, she snaps a rubber band to keep those impulses away. Which she is doing more and more in the last 3 years.
A lawsuit filed by one of their current artist, for 95 million dollars to release her from her contract so she can defect to another label, is causing Devil’s Music to start to go under. Emma, Joshua and Chelsea have come to the conclusion that they need to call Delilah Bishop in to save Devil’s Music.
Which she agrees to do but for a price. As part of her stipulation, Delilah gives them the name of a woman in Louisiana who could potentially be their next big star. She also tells them that her brother, Dante, needs to be brought on as a songwriter and she wants her share in the company back. Which they agree too. Chelsea gets to handle Dante.
The sex between Dante and Chelsea was fantastic. They started off like the seven years hadn’t happen. Of course, Chelsea kinda urged things on with being in the back of Dante’s limo with only her bra and shoes on. And the sex just got better from that day forward.
I also like that while they were falling back in love with each other, nothing was said until almost the end of the book.
The plot of the book was great. You never knew what was going to happen next and that definitely worked. People were not as they seemed and the author did a fantastic job at keeping you guessing at certain events.
The end of the book blew my mind. Not only because NOTHING was resolved but because new intrigue was added. The cliffhanger at the end of the book made me want to scream. This is one case where I say that the dreaded cliffhanger did work….because I don’t think I can wait until October to get the next book.
**I chose to leave this review after reading an advance reader copy**
Though the central characters, Dante Bishop and Chelsea Coin, take center stage, there are side stories that embellish upon this fast-paced, unabashed story of greed and deceit. Sin For Me uses the backdrop of hip hop music industry, taking an intense look behind the people who stole a family business from friends. Dante and Delilah Bishop were heirs to Devil’s Music, a music label that was the Bishop family legacy until it was stolen from them by Joshua Drake, Emma Toledo, and Chelsea Coin.
There is strange dynamic that play between Joshua and his wife Emma, Joshua and Delilah, and Joshua and Lex. With Dante and Chelsea reuniting after years apart, the intense drama unfolds along with the others. This story is filled with betrayal, deceit, lies, and lots and lots of sex. Yes, the sex is hot. The characters are insanely dysfunctional. Ms. Perry’s storytelling grabs you by the neck and shakes you mercilessly until the end. The story is rough and in-your-face unapologetic. At the end I felt drained from all the consuming dramatics, but it was an interesting read for me unlike I have read.
It also ends abruptly.
Perhaps there will be a sequel to explain the mystery behind a previous murder.
I was given an ARC of this book by Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept via NetGalley. I voluntarily reviewed this book.
