Synopsis

When the sun disappeared, the world was cast in shadows, hiding the evil that lay in wait. When it was dark, I hunted. The shadows caressed my body as I did things I could never do in the light of day.

Eighteen-year-old Bree Bowen has spent her entire life training and working as one of her father's assassins. Fear has kept her and her best friend, Wes, under her father's thumb--until now.When Wes takes matters into his own hands, securing Bree a new identity and a plane ticket to America, he gives her the one chance she's been desperately seeking.

Learning to live a new life isn't easy. Add in her new roommate, Reid, who just happens to be a stripper, and things start to get a little crazy. Falling for a man has never been part of her plan, but she can't seem to stay away from Reid.When Bree's past comes crashing back into her life, secrets that she's fought to keep hidden are revealed, and she's forced to choose between Reid and the life she could have with him, or Wes, the one man who has always loved her unconditionally.

Regardless of her choice, she must learn the consequences of sin.

Review

Hold on to….whatever…..just hold on!  Consequences of Sin is non-stop action, love, infatuation, and danger, mafia style.  I picked this book up and finished it one read….it was that good, it was that intriguing. It made my heart race with fear, sadness, elation, and triumph.

“You lost your mother when you were young. You can take down grown men with your bare hands.  You don’t speak kindly of your father.  You grew up with maids taking care of you.  And you came all the way across America with no plan in mind.  Something tells me you didn’t have the best childhood.”

Life has ups and downs. Bree Bowen’s seems to be mainly on the downs.  She has been raised by a man who is ruthless and self-serving. His mentality in life is basically kill-or-be-killed.  So, it is no wonder that when we find Bree that she is desperately looking for an answer to save her life.

“Reid set me on fire with just a touch and a few sentences.”

Reid is hiding from something in his own past. Relationships with females are quick and painless, serving one purpose alone.  It is a chance encounter that brings Bree to his doorstep and changes his course of direction and outlook on life.

“If Bree knew what kind of man he was she’d never contact him again.  He knew that. He’d always known.”

Wesley has known Bree his whole life. He has been her partner in crime, best friend, and protector.  But he’s keeping secrets from her that she can’t begin to imagine.

When we enter the story, Bree is at a confrontational point with her father and seems to be running out of options.  She must decide between living with no hope or dying.  However,  Wesley does not want her to be tied to the life that she has now.  So, he makes a plan of escape for her to finally have her freedom. Soon Bree is free and has the chance to experience a “normal” live. She has friends, a great job, and a HOT roommate. She starts being able to explore and do fun things she’s never done before.  But it would seem that good things don’t last forever when it comes to Bree, and soon her past will barge in, effecting her and this new-found life that she has built.

“It’s just..I’m sitting at an Exxon station with a beautiful British assassin, learning how to use a gun.  I guess I can check this off my bucket list.”

In the midst of the madness with Bree and her past ties, Reid gives us a good chuckle. He has now been entrenched into a scenario that would likely have an unfavorable ending, and is trying to come to grips with his entire life and the “what ifs” that this involves.  Add to that the relationship between Wesley and Bree that is still undefinable, and he is feeling unsure and desperate.  Our main characters continue to go through much more turbulence and unease before bringing us to the ending of their story.

K.A. Robinson’s writing in Consequences of Sin had me under a spell, and my trance-like state held until the very end.  Each of the main characters possessed qualities that engaged me in the storyline.  Bree and Reid both had their own naive misunderstandings of life.  When Reid first met Bree he had the impression that she was shy and somewhat untouched, not having experienced much in life.  Bree, on the other hand, saw Reid as someone who was more sexually experienced and would have no interest in her. These misconceptions were shattered for the good and bad.   Of course, I can’t leave out our other main character, Wesley. He won me over when he repeatedly put himself in harm’s way to help Bree. He is the epitome of a sexy bad boy.  I was shocked at his revelations near the end.  But, still had an unending connection with him.

So, how do I sum up my relationship with Consequences of Sin…..

“I felt like this moment was a tiny piece of heaven meant just for us.”
