This was a good story. I liked Morgan and Race alright...the story was fine but there were things I had issues with. This is the first story I've read by this author and there's something about the writing that just wasn't for me. I might try another of her books in the future but that's unsure because I'm not sure I'm into her writing style.
Race is a female executive at a big firm. She's had to be a witch to get where she is at work and keep her position. Race lost her father when she was still young and her mother wasn't very supportive growing up. Race had a boyfriend in college that cheated on her and it made her swear off any love interests.
Morgan is fresh out of 8 years in the Army, specializing in surveillance and supervision. When he gets home, it's to a smothering mother and old friends that are no good and will just get him in trouble. Morgan goes to a family wedding in Florida and ends up getting a position with his cousin's PI firm.
Morgan moves to Florida and his first case is a blackmail case. The client is a business woman that's being blackmailed and her career (which she's worked hard to get ahead in) is threatened. Race called ALFA's PI to work on her case and hopefully find out who's threatening her. When Morgan and Race meet, she tries to put on a cold front like she uses so much at work but she's flustered by Morgan. The attraction is definitely mutual but Morgan isn't happy he feels such a strong attraction to his first client. He's a bit worried for his job but after he can't keep Race off his mind for days at a time, Morgan decides to explore more with her.
As he and Race get to know each other, Morgan works on her case but it's not made easy by Race's disinterest in sharing her personal details with him. Despite her attempts to be standoffish, Race can't help but be drawn in by Morgan and be too flustered to hold onto her attitude. Morgan is a rather take charge guy and tends to ignore/enjoy her attitude so it works out well. The case doesn't go quite as well. They figure it out and all but there are delays that cause some danger to Race that really could have been avoided. But with that hurdle taken care of, Race and Morgan are able to (with a little help) start their HEA together.
This was an enjoyable story overall. Race was a decent heroine but she did sometimes seem to be obstinate just for the sake of it, even if it was to her own detriment. Morgan was a good hero. I'm not sure what it was about the writing that I didn't quite get into but although I thought the characters and story were alright it just wasn't quite the right vibe/feel for me. I guess this author's writing style just isn't for me but others might like it better.
* note - I listened to the audio version of this book. There were 2 narrators, a female for the parts from Race's PoV and a male for the parts from Morgan's PoV. Both did fine but Race's narration did bother me a bit. Race was born and raised in the city in Florida and from what I've heard (and experienced), the people that live in cities in Florida don't typically have the southern accent. The female narrator portrayed Race's voice with a heavy southern accent (that to me sounded more Louisiana than Georgia/Florida) and the male narrator didn't give Race an accent...so it bothered me a bit.
I was excited to get into a spin-off of our Gallo men as they open another business. This time it is the world of private investigations for the ex-military types ready to hang up their shields or BDUs, as the case may be. I was not disappointed.
What seemed to start out slow, I see in retrospect to be a necessary buildup. As Race and Morgan learn to trust one another enough to allow them to be their selves with each other as they can with no one else. The story is in turns sweet, sexy, hawt, suspenseful, and intriguing.
I’m anxious to see where this series will go and how much more we will see the Gallos, as well.
Note: while I was given this book as a gifted ARC, my opinions are my own and are given freely.
Title: SINFUL INTENT
Series: Alpha Pi #1
Category /Genre: Contemporary Romance
Received from: Chelle Bliss (in exchange for an honest review)
Recommended for: 18+ due to explicit sexual content
Grammar/editing: book received as an unedited ARC / errors excused
I generally hate the "insta-lust" romance where the two basically lock eyes on each other and both start babbling or strip each other naked in their thoughts, and soon they fall into bed as well. This one did have them dance for a bit before a couple drinks settled that score. And the suspense part wasn't done that bad, but overall, the characters are a bit shallow, and some auxiliary characters did not need to be there and thus felt extraneous.
