Review: Sweet the sin by Claire Kent

Sweet the Sun by Claire Kent
Release date: July 7, 2015
Publisher: Loveswept
My rating: 4

In the first novel in USA Today bestselling author Claire Kent’s deeply sensual two-part story of love, lust, and deception, a woman searching for the truth discovers that she’s sleeping with the enemy.
Portrait artist Kelly Watson keeps her relationships simple and steamy, with no strings attached. She’s had a hard time trusting other people since she was a child, when her father was murdered for trying to blow the whistle on corporate corruption. Nearly twenty years later, Kelly finds herself in the arms of a seductive stranger—the very same man who may have ordered her father’s death. And even as she plays him, using hot sex as a means to revenge, Kelly is tormented by one question: Is she committing the ultimate betrayal?
Caleb Marshall has spent decades forging a high-powered career, rejecting intimacy for the convenience of fast women and cheap thrills. But Kelly intrigues him, pushing commitment buttons he didn’t know he had. Still, something is wrong. Despite their physical and emotional chemistry, Caleb feels the fear inside of her. Now the only way to keep her safe is coming clean, before secrets and lies destroy their connection—no matter how deep, intense, and addictive it may be.
Kelly and Caleb’s story continues in Darker the Release!
Sweet the Sin is intended for mature audiences. This eBook includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

My Thoughts:
I loved this book. This was my first Claire Kent book and I am not dissapointed in the least. This book was intense and had a little bit of an edge with a healthy dose of a little BDSM on the side. Kelly was in the woods with her Dad when she was 10 and she turned around and found him with his head half shot off. She was adopted into a wealthy family, since her Mom ran off. Kelly works as a pet portrait artist and she thinks she's meeting a client in a park, and when he doesn't show she runs into Caleb. A hot older man with a dog. They end up getting it on in the woods, both under the impression that nothing more will ever come of this. Kelly returns to her apartment and finds the Mother that abandoned her, sitting on her couch with two pieces of news. The first thing is Kelly's Mother was the one who made the appointment and that the man she just had sex in the woods with is responsible for killing her Father. The second thing is, her mother is dying of cancer and she wants Kelly to get revenge on Caleb for her Father. Kelly staged a scene so Caleb would save her and then she basically stayed at his house thinking that she could get more information about her father. What she didn't count on was falling for him. Twists and turns galore in this book! My review of Darker the release will be up on Friday!
