I am really enjoying the Sin Trilogy by Georgia Cates. This book had me on the edge of my seat and I loved every second of it. I am so excited for the final book in the series!
At the end of the first book Sin has figured out that Bleu has became a part of the Fellowship in order to get closer to his father Thane. She believes that Thane killed her mother and now she wants to do the same to him. The tables turn on Sin when he finds himself handcuffed to the bed and Bleu leaves him there and heads back to America.
Bleu is back in America taking caring of her very ill father and spending time with her sister Ellison. She is out one night with Ellison and her friends at a bar when she runs into an old friend named Cody. He in a band and they are short a fiddle player so he convinces Bleu to get up on stage and perform with them. Even though she is having a good time with Cody she realizes how much she misses Sin. When she returns to her house she is surprised to find Sin there waiting for her. She finds out that he has been watching her for weeks and he wants her back. Will she be able to leave everything behind and live a happy life with Sin?
"My God, Bleu. Look at the way he's holding you...like you're his everything. I don't know how you walked away from him."
Sin is getting ready to take the lead role of The Fellowship from his father. His uncle Abram is not to happy and he has people out looking for Bleu so they can get rid of her. Sin knows that in order to keep Bleu safe he must convince her to marry him as The Fellowship wives and children are off limits. He knows it will be hard to convince her as she won't want to leave her dad and sister behind. She agrees to marry him but wants to stay in America until her father passes on. Sin must also promise to help her find the man who killed her mother. Will Sin be able to live a happy married life and still be the leader of The Fellowship? Will Bleu be able to handle living the life that she knows Sin lives? How will Abram and the other members of The Fellowship react to Sin and Bleu's marriage?
I know my Bonny Bleu. She'll never marry into the brotherhood if she believes its leader murdered her mother. I have to convince her my dad is innocent of the crime.
I really love the connection between Sin and Bleu. I love all the twists and turns this story has taken and I can't wait to see how this series will end. I hope Sin and Bleu can finally get the HEA they both deserve!!

Excerpt One: Bleu’s POV
I touch the screen. I stroke my finger down his face but it feels nothing like the real thing. I close my eyes so I can imagine the way his scruff felt against my skin.
He rarely grew what I would call a beard. He always kept his facial hair short and scruffy. And I loved it, especially when he would drag his face down the center of my body just to hear me squeal. But the best was when he’d push the crotch of my panties aside and rub his chin up and down between my legs.
“Holy shit, Bleu. That’s him, isn’t it?” I jerk when I hear Ellison’s voice over my shoulder. “That’s the man you were with in Scotland.”
I’m so stupid. I can’t believe I’ve allowed her to sneak up and catch me looking at this photograph. I was preoccupied. That’s my only excuse.
Ellison has interrogated me nonstop about my relationship with Sin. I’ve been vague. She’s on a need-to-know-only basis. That means I haven’t told her shit. But I want to. I need someone to tell me this excruciating pain in my heart is going to ease.
“Yes.” That’s my Breck. My admission feels like a ton of bricks lifted from my shoulders.
“Damn. That is one hottie Scottie.”
“I know.” I sigh as I prop my chin in my hand. I look at the handsome face of the only man in this world besides my father who has been willing to take me the way I am.
Two men. Both know the darkness I carry inside. But they love me anyway.
I’ve lost one. I’m losing the other. And it’s killing me.
“My God, Bleu. Look at the way he’s holding you … like you’re his everything. I don’t know how you walked away from him.”
You’d be surprised by the things you can do when you’re staring death in the face.
“My job was over.”
“You haven’t told me anything about it. Or him. Was it good?”
I recall the words he used to describe what being together was like for him. “The best ever.”
“You don’t think you’ll see him again?”
“No.” I won’t if I want to continue to live.
Excerpt Two: Sinclair’s POV
I’m in the background of Bleu’s life, as I have been for weeks. I have eyes on her at all times, even when they’re not my own. I safeguard her from harm. It’s all I’ve done since tracking my lass down in a small town in Mississippi, right outside of Memphis. I act as her protector from afar and she has no idea. She believes she’s hidden from The Fellowship—and me—but she couldn’t be more wrong. I’m always here, keeping a watchful eye on her and the MacAllister family.
I often need to be reminded that this is Bleu’s world. Every person she has contact with isn’t a threat but there’s an enormous problem with that. I have no idea who’s friend or foe.
I was concerned when Bleu disappeared at the bar with a man earlier tonight. I was on the verge of barging into the back until my lass came out on stage to perform with the band. I don’t think I’ve ever been so surprised in all my life. I knew she played but I never pegged her for a public performer. That doesn’t seem like my Bonny at all.
But I guess I don’t really know the real Bleu MacAllister. I only know the woman she pretended to be.
