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, an 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.

I loved this FBI-trained operative goes rogue on a personal revenge mission by infiltrating a secret crime organization and seducing and falling in love with its future leader romance! Readers who enjoyed Rachel Van Dyken's Eagle Elite Series and mafia romance enthusiasts, in general, will not want to miss A NECESSARY SIN!

As a small child, Bleu MacAllister barely escaped with her life the day her mother was killed practically right before her eyes. That near death experience and the loss of her mother have led to a life filled with one sole purpose: revenge. Everything Bleu has done, even her short stint in the FBI, has all been influenced by, and carefully calculated to succeed in, her obsession to avenge her mother's death.

Time is running out though, due to her mentor's ill health. So Bleu resigns herself to infiltrate The Fellowship, the secret Scottish crime organization responsible for her mother's death, earlier than her original planned timeline. Will she be ready, and strong enough, to successfully complete her mission?

Her plan is simple, seduce Sinclair "Sin" Breckinridge, The Fellowship's Leader's son, to gain access to his father so she can eliminate the monster who killed her mother once and for all. After all, any offspring of a sociopath killer must also be a monster, so if Sin gets hurt in the process, no harm no foul. What Bleu never counted on was her heart interfering. Can there ever be a true winner when revenge and love collide?

A NECESSARY SIN was a success both in the action/suspense arena, and in the erotic, passion department. I loved how the heroine was so strong, both physically and mentally. I always find it deeply satisfying when a hero is attracted to a heroine's wit and ability to take care of herself, but nonetheless chooses to protect her out of his own alpha drive. I also enjoyed the detail that Georgia Cates devotes to constructing the secret outlaw society named The Fellowship. Somewhat similar to the mafia, but with its own set of interesting twists, learning The Fellowship's rules has been intriguing, and I'm sure there are many more secrets yet to come.

All in all, A NECESSARY SIN was a fabulous start to what promises to be an action-packed, suspense-filled, erotic trilogy hit. I can't wait to see how Bleu and Sin's relationship continue to evolve, and how The Fellowship reacts to the cliffhanger ending, in The Next Sin, Book 2 in The Sin Trilogy, which is scheduled to be released in February.
