Review for Dirty Indiscretions by Roxy Sinclaire - 4 out of 5
SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -
I was loyal to my boss, Greco. I was there to protect him at all costs. Against all threats. But then I met HER.
Elda caught my eye in a way I could never imagine. I knew I had to have her.
One of Greco’s men betrayed him. But he thought it was me. He tried to get me. I wasn’t going to have any of that.
Greco was my father. Not the one who raised me, but by blood. See, he had an affair with my mom, who didn’t know he was married, and she got pregnant with me. He tried to have her killed, but she ended up going into hiding and died while giving birth to me.
Ever since then, I knew I was going to avenge her death. Even if it meant doing it against Greco.
I trained for years to be at the level I am at now. I just needed the right moment to do it.
But then I met Luke right when the moment presented itself. And we hooked up in the closet. And I have no regrets.
But I will have my revenge against Greco.
And I will give myself to Luke. One way or another.
MY REVIEW -
Whew! This book sure does get right to the hot stuff! This book features quite a few sexy times, which I think the author did a great job of writing. I appreciate this book for what it is, which is a book that doesn't dig too deep emotionally, but provides an entertaining, quick read. I really enjoyed the storyline, and would've loved for there to be more complexities to the story, and I almost gave this book a 3, but then I realized that this book delivered on what it intended, and that's to be a steamy read with a bit of backstory and plot, and I found that I quite enjoyed this read. The relationship between Luke and Elda was exciting, and I enjoyed both of them as characters; both are strong, independent characters, and I liked the connection that they build together. I do wish there were more of an epilogue, and some parts in the last chapters felt unnecessary, and the conflict was resolved way too quickly, and I would've loved for there to be a bit more suspense on that front. I liked that mafia aspect, but it felt a bit tame, and since this book says it's a dark romance, I was expecting a bit more darkness, but that I suppose is subjective. I listened to the audiobook version of this story, and the narrators did a pretty good job. The male narrator has a really nice voice, and the only thing that was a little weird was the Italian accent, but otherwise, he did great. The female narrator also had a nice voice, and I enjoyed her parts in the story. This book has wonderful sex scenes, interesting characters, and entertained me the whole time.
