Former Marine and newest Red Stone Security employee Alexander Blue is still adjusting to the civilian world after a decade spent at war, but when he sees someone in danger, nothing can take away that intrinsic need to protect. After stopping a would-be mugger, Blue finds himself being bandaged up by a sensual local artist in her Key West condo. He never expected to stay the night, even if it is on her couch. The mysterious Mina gets under his skin in a way he never thought possible. When it becomes clear that her mugging wasn’t random and she’s being targeted by deadly men, Blue has no problem stepping into the role of protector.
Tired of being coddled and treated like a child, Mina has tried to distance herself from her family. When danger finds her, she’s forced to turn to the sexy stranger who she feels a strong, unexpected connection with. In him she sees glimmers of herself; a little broken, withdrawn and wary of the world. Soon she learns that the biggest threat might not be from the men trying to kidnap her, but from the quiet warrior who poses an immediate risk to her heart.
I read the first seven books of this series what feels like ages ago, but this was one of those series, that I actually still remember after some time, and was delightfully surprised when I found new book had come out.
Sinful Seduction is not really that at all. I thought the attraction and chemistry between Alex and Mina, even though hot and steamy, was also adorable. With the insecurity they both felt with their feelings for each other, intensity of those feelings is tight. Alex's protectiveness towards Mina, how he takes care of her in the life threatening situation, and supports Mina in the events of the story is swoon worthy. Like it was said in the story 'true All-American Hero'.
The action and mystery is sharp and vivid, with enough twists in the plot, that keeps the reader on the edge, guessing.
It was a quick read, but enjoyable, with great intensity level of suspense and sweet romance, just how I like it ~ four spoons!!!
MY GRADING SCALE:
5 Spoons - Amazing, memorable story that I loved and want to read again. The best of the best and not given lightly
