These contrasting characteristics perfectly describe the hero and heroine of Emma Hart’s latest release, SIN, and there’s no better location/setting for a story rich in secrets and a decadent, enticing, sinfully hot story line than Las Vegas.
At first glance, Damien Fox personifies every woman’s ideal man because of his striking good looks and well-toned body, but once he opens his mouth, he becomes a bit of a smug jerk who believes his smooth moves and calculating actions allow him to claim anything and anyone he wants. But what’s most interesting about Mr. Fox is that his cocksure and smug attitude is more of a facade than anything else; it’s a shield for him to protect himself against his past and against the possibility of someone getting too close to him because he refuses to give that kind of power to anyone ever again.
In order to truly understand why Damien became the cold and emotionless man that he’s perceived to be, Emma Hart slowly reveals his past and his true nature, which means that initially, readers agree with Dahlia’s assessment of the pompous jerk, but as Damien and Dahlia’s exchanges become more about their attraction to one another than about what he wants from her, Dahlia as well as readers begin to see him in a new light and can’t help but want to bring out the man Damien truly is and see if there’s a chance of a future for him and Dahlia despite their shaky start.
Dahlia Lloyd is quite the dynamic heroine - one who Damien drastically underestimates simply because he’s too far under his father’s control at the beginning of the story. Regardless of the tragic events, Dahlia has had to endure, she’s an independent, intelligent, and good-natured woman who counts her blessings despite losing those most important to her. She definitely keeps Damien on his toes from their first interaction, and her sassy personality knows no bounds, especially when it comes to some arrogant man child who thinks he can smooth talk his way into her pants and into the deed to her bar. And as Dahlia figures out a way to beat Damien at his own game, she also helps him let go of the guilt he feels over his past and find a new way to handle things both in the present and the future.
Emma Hart makes Damien Fox work for everything when it comes to Dahlia. They seem to walk around each other for quite some time, never truly succumbing to their desires because there’s too much at stake for both sides. But once they give into their attraction, the rules and the game itself are redefined, forcing both acknowledge what is truly happening between them and what that means for both their personal and professional lives.
The secondary characters in SIN make for quite the entertainment. Abby and Fergus provide a dramatic flair to the story, offering commentary when it comes to Damien and Dahlia’s more than business relationship as well as adding some over the top antics to lighten the heaviness of some of the story line.
I can’t write a review about SIN and not bring up the name and theme of Dahlia’s Las Vegas bar. I absolutely LOVED the concept of The Scarlet Letter and the back story of its creation and its reinvention now that Dahlia’s in charge. There’s something so cool about the bar’s dynamics and what it offers its patrons and I for one would wait in line to experience the ambience of a bar like The Scarlet Letter.
Dahlia and Damien’s story is a fantastic start to what I’m sure will be a sexy and dramatic series, and with who the female lead is in book two, I can’t wait to see how Hart crafts Perrie’s story because that girl has a ton of demons to slay and a past and present that once told will shed light on just how dark and gritty her life became.
4.5 Poison Apples
Damien is SIN wrapped up in a perfect exterior, he's dark, moody, and not used to being told No, and Dahlia is his complete opposite. She pushes him, doesn't give in and drives him completely insane and she tells him no ever single chance she gets.
When Dahlia comes back to Vegas to take over her dead fathers bar The Scarlett Letter after grieving the past three months, the first thing she has to deal with is telling the annoying Damien Fox that she is no way going to sell him her bar, but Damien will not take no for an answer. These two play a sexy game of cat and mouse and what started out as a batter of wills to get the bar, ended up being the beginning of a sexy romance between these two no matter how hard they tried to deny it.
I adored the banter between them and how far Damien tried to push Dahlia and how she pushed him right back. Every time Damien thought he had one upped her, she would get him right back and it was awesome to watch. They really balanced one another out and always seemed to surprise each other. You could tell that this quickly became something more than Damien trying to get Dahlia to sell him her bar and it's going to be something epic if they both are willing to let go and enjoy one another.
Both of these characters are hurting from tragedy's of their pasts, but where Dahlia is a bit more open about her losses, Damien isn't and he shuts down when she presses which causes a lot of conflict between these two. When he finally opens it breaks your heart to hear why he's closed off and everything he's been through, but instead of running away Dahlia embraced him and did what she always does and tries to fix it for him. I loved this about her, she may come off as hard and strong, but she has a heart of gold for the people she cares about, and she would do anything for Damien once she let her guard down around him.
This story started off a bit slow for my liking, but once it picked up, I couldn't put this book down. Damien and Dahlia's story was amazing, sexy, hilarious, and swoony! Damien and Dahlia are a match made in heaven and the secondary characters are perfect and made the story that much better. If you're looking for a sexy romance that will have you laughing out loud as well, I highly recommend picking up SIN by Emma Hart today!
