The moment I saw her, I wanted her.
I tried to resist her, but Race had other plans.
One night, in a moment of weakness, I gave in to my desires.
I still had a job to do before her world collapsed.
If I failed at finding the person behind the threats, I could lose her forever.
Temptation can be dangerous.
“You’re really purdy,” she slurred with a lopsided grin, running her finger down my cheek.
“That’s it. No more drinks for you,” I said, dragging the glass away from her.
“No! I’ve only had three,” she said as she lurched forward, pulling the drink out of my hands.
“I’m enjoying myself. I’ve had a bitch of a week and I deserve to let loose a little.”
I held my hands up. “You’ve actually had four martinis, but anything you want, princess.”
Her eyes grew into little slits. “I’m not your princess,” she slurred, sounding completely adorable.
My cheeks hurt as I smiled. “I’m going to take you home now. I think you need to sleep it off.”
“Last time I checked,” she said before hiccupping, “you’re not my daddy.” A slow smile crept across her face. She scooted closer and whispered, “Unless that’s your thing.” She tried to wink, but both eyes closed, one after the other.
I leaned into her space, a breath away from her lips. “It’s not my thing, but I’m happy to act out your fantasies. But I don’t think you want to cross that line. Once you go there, there’s no going back.” I stared into her eyes.
“Oooh.” Her eyes grew wide. “Is that supposed to scare me, Mr. DeLuca?”
I didn’t move. “I’m just giving you fair warning. You’ve had a few drinks, and I won’t take advantage of that. I’m just telling you how it is.”
“You’re full of yourself.” Her warm, sweet breath caressed my lips as she spoke.
All I wanted to do was reach out, pull her face to mine, and kiss her full, beautiful lips. “I’m sure of myself and confident in my abilities, yes. That’s entirely different than being full of myself.” I licked my lips, testing her.
Her eyes dropped to my mouth as her lips parted.
“Another?” Lisa interrupted.
“We’re good,” I replied, keeping my eyes pinned to Race and waving Lisa off.
“Pfft,” Lisa scoffed, stomping away.
Race glared in Lisa’s direction. “She wants you,” she whispered.
Was she jealous?
“I don’t want her.”
“She’s a sure thing though.”
I leaned closer, leaving very little space between us. “I never liked easy.”
“All men like easy.” Her body swayed, moving so close our lips almost brushed.
I received an arc of this book for an honest review. Chelle Bliss does it again, writes an AMAZING alpha male with a strong female that can keep up!!! I’ve read her Men of Inked series and that’s what drew me to her writing that she not only wrote strong, caring, charismatic alpha males. But that the female main characters were all also very strong women who had minds of their own. That together they made a perfect team and really got each other. Not many authors can do that, I always find that if I really love the male mc than I’m annoyed by the female mc or vice versa. In the case of Sinful Intent I loved ALL the characters old and new. We get introduced to Morgan who is an ex military man who hasn’t quite found his footing in the civilian world. He gets coerced by his mom to travel down to Florida to visit family, enter the Gallo’s (FLOVE this family!!). Morgan’s mom is Sal Gallo’s sister and all the Gallo offspring are his cousins during his visit he gets a job offer from Thomas and James to work at ALFA PI. Even though this is a completely new series we still see a heavy Gallo presence but I’m not complaining, it felt like I was catching up with family. Morgan takes the job and moves to Florida, his first case ends up being trying to find the person trying to blackmail a high powered corporate woman, Race True. I liked how the scene was written when Morgan went to meet Race for the first time to go over the assignment. For some reason I just pictured those old Hollywood PI movies with the guy smartly dressed and a fedora and cigarette. The scene itself just had a lot of character to it. I got that from a lot of the book I was drawn to all the characters but I was also drawn to the setting like maybe I could have been in that bar in that shady part of Florida with the sticky humidity. Ms. Bliss also was true to her writing with the great banter between Morgan and Race as well as the other characters. The chemistry between Morgan and Race was sizzling which added to the mystery of the blackmailer as well. You kind of wondered would Morgan be able to focus on the job at hand while he was getting distracted by his feelings for Race. Well no need to worry he was able to multitask, lol. All in all I think this book had a good blend of everything I’ve come to expect from a Chelle Bliss book, HOT alpha males, sexy strong females, sizzling sexy times, and a strong family. Can’t wait for the next book in this series.
