Book Review | RED SIN by Aleatha Romig

Release Date: October 19

Red is the color of blood, sacrifice, danger, and courage. It’s also associated with heat, passion, and sexuality. When two people meet unexpectedly with an inexplicable attraction that defies common understanding…it can be called RED SIN.

I’m the words of Gordon Gekko – “Greed is Good”  It’s a high-stakes game of predator vs. prey. Family loyalty will be tested! 

I’m suspicious of Julia’s mother.  Why does she want her daughter to marry a cheater? 

Let’s talk Van aka Donavan Sherman.  Red Sin is set in the world of finance of a pharmatecual company call Wade Pharmaceutical. Van is a corporate raider known for wrecking businesses.  He is offering Julia the opportunity to gain control of the company after learning for upcoming nuptials may have been more of a financial deal instead of love. I believe Van may ultimate do what he always do in business – Takeover even if he wants Julia in his bed. He promises not to betray her. But its in his nature to do what he known for in the world of finance – The Wolf in the Midwest.  

This is my guess anyway and wouldn’t it be intriguing if he gains control of Wade for himself with the help and the detriment of Julia. She is the largest shareholder after all.

Even though he wants Julia and will abide by her wishes, his agenda may  overide the strange tingle sensation  in his heart.  Will Julia pay the price? 

Who will outmaneuver the other in this battle over Wade Phamareutical???  I’m still waiting for VAN to be as Viscious as he claim. 

Next Book please!!!’

What I don’t like about the book: 

  • my pet peeve calling genitalia pink. You can use 5 different adjectives in one sentence without the word “pink” and it can still sound sexy, erotic and hawt!!!
  • Constantly referring to the title “Red Sin”  It was a bit much and it was distracting to me as a reader.  

What I love about this book: 
  • the sharp dialogue   between the characters. . 
  • The Hero, Donovan Sherman, makes no mystery how much Julia affects him and he constantly tells her so . I mean, he actually hung a Christmas wreath on his front door ! Small steps. . . 
  • The sheet scorching sex 

Julia and Van found one another in a shaken snow globe. Stranded in a blizzard, they embraced being two individuals with no last names. The plan was to walk away from each other with no regrets—until that plan changed.

Julia’s life was delivered a staggering blow the day she discovered her fiancé’s infidelity. The night she met a handsome stranger, one who showed her the possibility of a life filled with more than the fulfillment of expectations, she took a chance.

When it comes to business, Donovan Sherman is a wolf—a bloodthirsty carnivore who leaves wounded prey and victims in his wake. He learned from the best, his onetime nemesis and now-mentor, Lennox Demetri, who showed him that opportunities are only ripe for those willing to risk it all, a lesson Donovan took to heart.

With Julia McGrath, Donovan must decide if this beautiful woman who showed him the meaning of red sin will fall victim as his prey or if after experiencing the unbridled passion, there is more that he wants.
