Review: Sinful Seduction by Ann Christopher

Reviewed by Jen

This is my first book by Ann Christopher and it pulled me in from the very start. Alessandro Davies is a broken man after coming home from the war that killed his twin brother Tony. He lives in his family’s sweeping mansion in the Hamptons with his estranged teenage son and his disabled war buddy. The last thing he wants is a visit from Tony’s ex fiancé.

Skylar has tried to contact Sandro many times to discuss the generous bequeath of half of the family home from Tony in his will. In fact, she only wants to give it back to the family, but Sandro won’t take her calls.  That’s what drives her to venture to his home in the middle of the night during a storm. A storm that drops a tree on her car and ends up trapping her on the property while she recovers.

There is an undeniable heat between these two main characters and it kept me wanting to turn the pages to see them finally come together. The writing was very engaging and immersed me in the story.

I was disappointed when I learned how little of a foundation these two actually had, however. The story made it seem like they had an opportunity to have developed a connection, one they had denied and had made their fantastic sexual tension believable. *Spoiler alert* they had only had one conversation in their past. So it made what seemed initially like a legit foundation, was really a mondo case of insta-love. That bummed me out, because by then I was already invested. It just no longer made sense.

Also, the author did note that the story was kind of short (This is a reissue from the Kimani line) but the warning did not keep me from being surprised when the book ended around the 80% mark. I thought there would be more! I guess it speaks well for the book that I wanted more. As I said, the tension was great, the sex was hot, and I enjoyed both main characters.

If you like a brooding, sexy military hero who acts like a bear with a thorn in his paw… And you’re down with a scoop of angst on top of your sexual tension, this might be for you. As long as you’re in the mood for something quick and Insta love doesn’t slow you down.

Would read from this author again.
