{Release Day: Review, Teaser + Giveaway} of A Necessary Sin by Georgia Cates

A Necessary Sin by Georgia Cates
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

GENRE: Contemporary
THEME: Romance, Mobsters


Bleu MacAllister is consumed. A horrific childhood incident has caused every decision in her life to revolve around bringing a monster to justice. With years spent studying The Fellowship, an organized crime brotherhood of liars, thieves, and killers, Bleu will rely on her skills as a special agent to cut Thane Breckenridge off at the knees. But walking hand in hand with retribution means risking collateral damage, in the form of Breckenridge’s son Sinclair—until Sin becomes so much more than Bleu bargained for. She’s always known this undertaking would place her life in danger—she never imagined her heart would be as well.


I loved the premises of A Necessary Sin, I wasn’t sure anything could claim the top spot on my new love for romance of a very hot bad guy against the law. But Cates has totally won me over with bad boy Sin, who earns his name with flying colors and the damaged and vengeful Bleu as the heroine.
A Necessary Sin follows Bleu MacAllister who went through a terrible incident when she was a little girl. Witnessing her mother’s death and also having to fake her own death so that the killer would leave, Bleu is damaged beyond belief. Smart as a child she becomes ruthless as an adult, now a trained FBI agent and planning revenge on the very man who took her mothers life. But what Bleu wasn’t expecting was meeting the killer’s son who sparks a light in her broken heart.

Bleu is like Jennifer Garner in the show Alias, she is seriously kick butt and super brave. She has a plan and is going to see it through to the end, to make sure the killer pays for taking her mother from her. Bleu goes all in, she puts herself in the middle of The Fellowship, the very men who work for her mother’s killer Than Breckenridge. She is to get in with his son Sinclair and take Thane down in his own domain. Bleu risk’s a lot and I was hoping her cover would be more secure. At times I felt she made some mistakes and for preparing and training so long she would have covered all her openings. But Sin becomes a major blind spot for her and I loved how they were together. It goes to show the love pops up in the most unexpected ways.

Sinclair Breckenridge is not a good guy, he’s secretive, deadly and can’t resist the American who catches his eye. He wants her and will have her, no matter if he has to change his ways. Sin may be feared in the Fellowship but his family and the people who are apart of his life protect each other, he would do anything for them. Bleu becomes the outcast who has slipped into his heart. It’s always interesting to see how a tough man can crumble because of a woman, but he keeps his edge no matter how much Bleu softens him.

Overall I seriously couldn’t of been more thrilled to read such a heart-stopping story. I wasn’t sure what was going to happen to Bleu, if what happened when she was young was what she really saw and lastly what is she going to do about Sin now that she’s in so deep? Since this is the first of the series the ending left me freaking out a little bit because I have to know what she’s going to do. I also cant wait to see what happens with Sin. So much left me shocked and wondering, and Bleu changes through out each day she’s with Sin. The romance is hot and the chemistry held some serious tension and holy crap hotness. I cant wait for book 2 and wish it was February already!

Georgia resides in rural Mississippi with her wonderful husband, Jeff, and their two beautiful daughters. She spent fourteen years as a labor and delivery nurse before she decided to pursue her dream of becoming an author and hasn’t looked back yet.

When she’s not writing, she’s thinking about writing. When she’s being domestic, she’s listening to her iPod and visualizing scenes for her current work in progress. Every story coming from her always has a song to inspire it.

Sinclair Breckenridge’s POV:
“People don’t realize the things they say without uttering a word. Something as simple as the lift in the corner of one’s mouth can reveal thoughts and emotions better than any voice. Body language—it’s nature’s crafty trick, second only to falling in love.”
“Aye. It’s a shan.”
“A shan?”
“Americans would probably use the word shame.”
“Oh. You sound like you know from experience.”
I have no experience. I’m far too intelligent for such nonsense. “When one falls in love, that person makes the decision to become vulnerable. It’s not a path I’d ever willingly choose so, no. What about you? Has Bonny Bleu ever been in love?”
“I’ve tried dating but it never matters what I do. I’m always what’s wrong.” She’s nervously twisting the ring on her thumb. “I’m able to capture other’s emotions in photos yet I can’t get a grip on my own. I avoid connecting with people. I make myself an island so it gives me an excuse to remain alone.” She sighs and looks embarrassed. “Wow. That sounded like a psychological profile … or something.”
