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, a Scottish 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.

Sinclair Breckenridge’s POV:
“Damn, you don’t give much away.”
He’s right. I have to make myself more vulnerable. “Most men don’t appreciate hearing the word no when it comes to sex, so I thought you were skipping out on me.” I shrug. “I must confess it was a huge letdown to not see you for two days. I wondered if my demands might have been too much for you to handle or maybe I was a turnoff.”
“It’s the opposite for me. I’ve never been more turned on.”
“I’m calling bullshit.” As much as I hate to admit it, that damn Geneen was stunning—until I broke her nose. “I’ve seen the women at the bar. Some are gorgeous and have bodies to die for. There’s no way I’m the biggest turn-on you’ve ever had.”
“Bleu. Those women are beautiful until you know them and understand their motives for being at Duncan’s. Every last one of them wants to be claimed, and they’re willing to do whatever it takes to make that happen.”
Claimed. I remember reading about this in one of the files. The Fellowship has this bizarre practice of laying claim on women they aren’t married to. “I don’t understand what you mean by claimed.”
“You don’t understand because you aren’t like them. And I like that very much.”
“I want you to tell me what it means. Is it a Scottish thing?”
“Another time, Bonny Bleu.”
Sinclair Breckenridge’s POV:
“I’m in the business of boundaries and limits. I’m aware of what mine are and how far I’m willing to go to get my job accomplished. It can include lying and sometimes stealing.” I wait a moment for driving the last nail into the coffin. “And perhaps the occasional killing.”
“How do you feel when you do those things?”
“Powerful.” I purposely choose that word because it’s the one she used to describe how she felt when she brought Duff to his knees. I want her to see just how similar we are.
She watches out the window for a minute before speaking again. “Do you like the way it feels?”
I can’t lie. I get a high from it. “Very much.”Another minute passes. “Okay.”
What? “Just … okay?”
“Would you like me to be horrified?” she asks. “I can do that if it would make you feel better or improve your opinion of me.”
She’s no fucking Pollyanna. So I guess there’s no reason for her to pretend to be. “No. Okay works for me.”
I’m not sure if I should be disturbed by her lack of appall. It feels like a double standard to be shocked by an absence of dismay.
My God, has the pot met the kettle? “I wish I could get inside your head.”
“No, you don’t,” she says. “My mind is a dark place to be.”
I think I may have met the perfect woman. In her eyes, I’m not a monster at all.
Bleu MacAllister’s POV:
“You better be worth all this work and waiting.” He nips my bottom lip and gives my ass another painful squeeze before turning to walk to his car.
Anticipation—it builds excitement and suspense. The brain really is a sexual organ, even for men. Sin is going to spend the next five days and nights fantasizing about what it’ll be like when he finally has me beneath him. Waiting is something he’s never had to do so this is another way of setting me apart from the others before me. It proves I’m worth the wait and far more than just fuckworthy.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Rating: 3.5 Stars
Georgia Cates...... I love her to pieces.
As a fan of Georgia Cates I was over the moon when I saw the arc for A Necessary Sin show up on my kindle. Right away, I dropped everything I was doing and reading and dived in. The story starts off with suspense and I Shouted ”Oh MY”. I knew I was in for a ride based on where Georgia was taking the story.
So, popcorn in hand and my kindle in the other I continued to read about Bleu MacAllister and Sinclair Breckenridge.
Bleu was a very strong, independent, determine, level headed heroine. I enjoyed reading about someone that had everything together and was not all over the place.
Then we have Sin who was a mystery. He was very guarded at first and once he opened up to Bleu I would say he was intriguing. I felt that some of the secrets that both Bleu and Sin had were very interesting.
What I did not like:
I did not like that I could not connect with the characters. I am big on falling for a character which makes me devour the story. There were so many little things that contributed to my questioning of both characters. I felt that Sin who was labelled as always suspicious of someone trying to take down the Fellowship let down his guard way to quickly. Sin was Scottish which I found it very hard sometimes to understand what I was reading.
I wanted to know more about Bleu's thinking behind the decision she made to bring her monster to justice. How did she remember the name of the killer and why she did some of the things she did (I don't want to give to much away)
Overall, I felt that this was an ok read. I wasn't overcome with emotions or sitting at the edge of my seat. I did find that the story had an interesting story line and was very unique. Book 2 is coming out in February and I plan to read it to see if the story picks up for me.
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.
