Start your review of Sweet the Sin Revenge Saga, 1. May 28, Geri Re rated it liked it. Let me start this review by saying I love Claire Kent's writing style. Her style of writing is very sensual, very raw, very honest. Her characters aren't always the most lovable but they way she writes them compels you to at least root for them.
To be honest, I had a hard time rooting for the characters here. I struggled with the constant manipulation the characters -- especially our heroine -- did in this book. Kelly Watson suffered a great childhood trauma after finding h 3. Kelly Watson suffered a great childhood trauma after finding her own father murdered in the woods during one of their walks. After her father died, her own mother abandoned her.
As a result, Kelly had a hard time trusting people. She met Caleb Marshall. Caleb is much older than Kelly. Mysterious, powerful, rich and very ruthless. Their physical attraction and lust for each other was instantaneous. What Kelly didn't know was that her estranged mother had orchestrated the whole meeting with Caleb. The reason? Her mother strongly suspected that Caleb was involved in her husband's death years ago. It's all very convoluted, and the plan was for Kelly to get close to Caleb to gather evidence to indict him of her father's murder.
Claire Kent doesn't give readers any warning. She just drops you right into the scene and you have to figure out the story as you go along. The connection between Kelly and Caleb was purely physical. Surprisingly, I wasn't annoyed by this because it was consistent with their characters. After Kelly's mother revealed Caleb's involvement and her plan to use Kelly to get close to Caleb, I was engrossed and I wanted to find out more. Unfortunately, the book took a little detour for me at that point because of Kelly. She became too laden with guilt and too conflicted with her "feelings" for Caleb that she started faking her orgasms whenever they had sex.
What's worse was you get to read about her plotting and manipulating the whole thing in her head, while Caleb was grunting and groaning and obviously enjoying himself. It was tedious to read. I found myself getting annoyed with everything. I understand she's conflicted but I gotta to be honest and say that I didn't enjoy reading about that. Also, her mother after abandoning her, came out of nowhere to basically force her to act out her plan of revenge was too convenient.
Kelly hates her mother and they never had that kind of relationship and yet, she easily went with her plan to seduce Caleb to gain information. Not surprisingly, Caleb was a well written, fleshed out character. We get to be in his head here and there. Not nearly enough, in my opinion, but it was enough for me. He is obviously not a nice guy and you know he'd done terrible things and continue to do them but he was fascinating. I enjoyed reading his POV the most. There are some things in his past that aren't revealed but are teased in this book.
I do hope we get his full back story in the next book. Also, comparing both characters, I found Caleb to be more well rounded. He was vulnerable, and he showed it even though it was a disadvantage to him. Kelly had some vulnerable moments but it gets smothered by her guilt. She did get better towards the end of the book. Better in a sense that she's allowing herself to feel more, and there was less manipulating and maneuvering on her part. Relationship wise, Kelly and Caleb have finally arrived at an understanding regarding their relationship.
On the intrigue front, secrets are slowly being uncovered and Kelly might be in a lot more trouble than she'd bargained for. I'm exaggerating a little bit because it wasn't that bad but still, I'd rather have the answers sooner than later. And I wish, the publisher indicated it somewhere that there won't be any resolution until the second book. God knows putting 1 in the title doesn't cut it anymore. Anyhoo, I'm looking forward to the next book. I hope it's going to be more about the revenge plot and their relationship not just the sex.
The sex was fine. Hot even. But after the first one, it started to read the same. View all 36 comments. Kelly is tormented by one question: Is she committing the ultimate betrayal? Sweet the Sin is the first in a two part erotic series about love, deception and revenge. The female protagonists finds herself sleeping with a man she should loathe, fear and potentially ruin as she uncovers the truth of her past.
Pet Artist Kelly Watson immediately drew me into her world with her disturbing history that has understandably left her with issues of trust. I enjoyed her characterisation and the way her pa Kelly is tormented by one question: Is she committing the ultimate betrayal? I enjoyed her characterisation and the way her past emerges throughout the story arc. She lived through hell 18 years ago and now, with her weapon of sex, she may have the opportunity for her own brand of justice. Caleb Marshall is a charismatic, powerful business man who's used to getting exactly what and whom he wants.
Both protagonists prefer to satisfy their desires with one-night-no-strings-attached dalliances but in each other, for their own individual reasons, they see something they want more of. Kelly has an agenda to address and Caleb is implicitly drawn to her They share an intense physical attraction What will be the consequence? Kelly's impetus behind the story and her relationship with the male protagonist is highly intriguing and is the driving force behind the way I felt throughout.
Having said that her disconnection makes total sense within the context of the story; her suppressed emotions are logical but maybe this and other elements began to feel a little repetitive and detracted from my connection to the story. The third person narrative traverses between Kelly and Caleb's perspective and, as it began to develop, revealing the story layers, I began to favour the hero's point of view in the telling. There are times I relished Sweet the Sin and there are moments that, if I'm completely truthful, my interest waned because of the repetitive nature of Kelly's thoughts and actions.
I began to lose faith in her motivation which felt a little frustrating because in the early stages of the story I loved her character. Ultimately this story of love and revenge kept me engaged to the end and left me wanting to know how their story ends.
I've a feeling that the conclusion could provide me with the angst feelings I crave. Advanced copy received from the publishers, via NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review thoughts View all 22 comments. Only read one book from this author in the past and I remember loving it. Though I must say my rating was difficult to ponder. Overall I can say that I liked the book but some parts I really felt were unnecessary and made me feel a little uncomfortable. She got me hooked to the story from one, and the first interaction scene happening left no guess to what I just got myself into.
Some damn good erotica. We meet Kelly Watson , young pet portrait artist yes, they exist leaving her life day by day. She suffered a great deal as losing her father in terrible circumstances and being abandoned by her mother after while. She met Caleb Marshall fortuitously, while she was expecting to meet a client of hers in a public park.Sweet sex Kent
