This is a story that involves Adam and Lana.
Adam is running the local bar where all the locals gather and he hears the local stories, the gossip. Adam had a problem with drinking a while back and at times, it can be hard to run the bar, especially when he is stressed but he does it.
In comes Lana. Lana left Madison about 20 years ago to escape the death and sex abuse that rocked this small town. When she hears the murders and sex abuse are again rocking the small town she decides she needs to head back to fight her demons.
There she meets Adam and finds that Adam is fighting demons of his own, which one is being a recovering alcoholic. Other demons they are fighting is being victims of sexual abuse. The story line can be heavy at times. Adam and Lana work together to put the demons in their past at rest and work together to find out who is committing the current murders away.
The story line really was entertaining and at times had me very sad for the characters. There were twists and turns I didn’t see coming but I liked that. I can’t wait for book 3 to come out.
I highly recommend that you read book 1 in the series-“Deeper Than Need” which starts this story and better explains things.
I really recommend this story. It is very entertaining even if you are coming into the story as a first time reader. The interaction between Adam and Lana was hot; their scenes in the book literally leaped off the page. Kudos to Ms. Walker for writing such a sensitive topic and making it work without being overly “vulgar”.
My Rating: 5 stars *****
Noah and Adam were two of our main characters, along with Trinity in the first book. This book is darker, as truths are discovered and vengeful deaths are still happening today. Adam is our hero in this book, and our heroine turns out to be the missing Lana, from 20 years before. When she learns that a body was discovered in the old house (this was part of the first book), Lana decides she must return to help end the horror and put things to right.
Adam has always loved Lana, though when she left, she was involved with Noah, who has now moved on with Trinity. It took Adam almost 15 years to overcome his drinking addiction, but he uses sex with any women to survive his loss of Lana. Lana herself overcame a drug addiction, as she ran away and hid from the truth. When she arrives in town, it is Adam who will recognize her, and after recovering from the shock, he takes her to his home, as she has no money and he wants answers.
What follows is a mystery that has so many twists and turns, you cannot read too quickly as you will miss an important clue or revelation. The whole town is in uproar, as so many upstanding citizens are discovered to be part of this club. As everyone is trying to pull themselves up from this tragedy, someone is killing off the members of the club, who are still alive.Read more ›
Engaging is the right word for this series. We get to know the townsfolk, and all of their deep, dark, truly hideous secrets. We care about the victims, and want retribution against the perpetrators. In Sweeter Than Sin, we watch one major player come back on the scene, while the man who has loved her for 20 years struggles with the reasons behind her disappearance, and her motives for returning to the scene of the crime.
I've said it before, no one writes tortured males as well as Ms. Walker. Adam's head is not a fun place to be. He's a recovering alcoholic, 15 years sober, but you get the impression that each day, each hour, each minute of those 15 years has been Adam actively wrestling his addiction, and only winning through sheer will. He has made no peace with the demons that drove him to alcohol in the first place. When the biggest demon ends up in Adam's bar, he is left reeling.
Lana has battled addictions of her own, establishing a disciplined existence of trying to atone for her sins committed on the night she disappeared. She comes back to Madison when she learns of the goings on detailed in the previous books, determined to get answers, and put a stop to the perverted activities going on in the town. Activities she thought had ended when she left town some 20 years ago.Read more ›
