Kyra Davis, the New York Times bestselling author of Just One Night, returns with book one in the thrillingly erotic Pure Sin series featuring a beautiful young woman out for revenge—until she falls in love with the one man whose secrets are as dangerous as her own. (Note: this volume collects Parts 1 - 3 of the previously serialized Deceptive Innocence ebook series.)
Ever since Bell’s mother died while serving time for a murder she didn’t commit, Bell’s been focused on one thing: revenge. She knows her mother was set up by Jonathon Gable, the head of both the powerful Gable family and an international banking corporation. Now she’s determined to take him down—from the inside.
Bell needs access to the Gable home and offices, so she poses as a bartender to seduce her way into the bed—and life—of Jonathon’s rebellious youngest son, Lander. He’s not a typical Gable, spending more time in the dive bars of Harlem than the posh cocktail lounges of the Upper East Side. He has an attraction to danger, a vulnerability Bell isn’t shy about exploiting. It should be easy to uncover the secrets she needs to destroy his family and clear her mother’s name.
But it turns out Lander is much more complicated than she ever imagined. He’s enticing, intelligent, mysterious—plus their sexual chemistry is off the charts. Even though Bell knows he’s the enemy, she can’t help but be moved, both physically and emotionally, by the man she swore was just a target. When he finds out the truth she’s sure both their hearts and her plan will be crushed...until she begins to realize that Lander might be hiding his own secrets, darker than she ever imagined.P
What started out as a three part serial it has since been combined into one book. I’m a fan of Kyra Davis. I really like her writing style and her unique stories. Her characters are always rich with emotions and I love sinking into their world and feeling like I’m a part of their story.
This story was amazing. It’s unique storyline captured my attention from the very first line and kept me captivated until the very end. There are so many aspects to this story. It kept me busy trying to figure what would happen next. Once I thought I’d have something figured out things would take a different turn and I’d be left wondering WTH was that. I’m not saying that as a negative. This story is truly complex. There is so much going on. I really loved it.
The sex scenes were woah! Totally HOT! And plentiful. And well written.
The ending was epic and I can’t wait to read the sequel which is entitled Dangerous Alliance. It’s due out in December.
Overall, I really, really enjoyed this book. If you’re a fan of sexy, suspenseful stories that will keep you guessing until the very end then Deceptive Innocence is for you.
