SYNOPSIS

She was made for sin. Sin was something he knew intimately. 

John Murphy is tormented by nightmares. A bestselling young-adult author, he writes the ultimate fantasy: stories where good always triumphs. He knows better. His past has shown him the worst in people—and in himself. When he moves next door to the sexy, vibrant Livvy—a woman completely unlike his usual one-night stands—he’s driven to explore every curve of her delicious body.

Pastry chef Livvy knows that giving in to the temptation that is John Murphy won’t lead to anything permanent, but she deserves a passionate summer fling. John discovers she’s as sweet as the confections she bakes while Livvy slowly unravels his secrets. But what will happen when she uncovers them all?

This story broke my heart, like proper broke my heart..it made me FEEL…it made me CRY…it made me ANGRY…it made me SMILE..it even made me laugh out loud. This is why it got 5 stars…Sweet as Sin is a deep, raw and intense read.

John Murphy stole my heart, from the minute his cheekiness brought him to Livvi’s door. John is a tortured soul, emotionally scarred so deeply, by an extremely abusive stepfather. Those scars rule every aspect of his life. So much so that he is unable to have any form of long-standing relationship except with the sister he has always protected.

John is an author who writes a series about two monsters, Jondi and Thorn. These monsters came to life when he was a child trying to safe-guard his sister, telling her the stories late at night to help her (and himself) escape the fears and hurt from the mental and physical abuse they both suffered. Those monsters have protected him and given him a safe place to escape to his entire life. Until he moves next door to Livvi and everything changes….

Livvi is an extremely talented pastry chef and owner of the specialty bakery; the Sugar Shack. She is a very strong and independent woman, she knows what she wants. She too has had a tough childhood with a cheating father.

The chemistry between John and Livvy is yummy HOT! However, what starts off as a bit of a fling soon turns out to be much more, as both being damaged by their respective childhood, makes their connection that much more emotional and intense.

John and Livvi’s journey is a beautiful story, it is passionate, emotional and very well written!

(When I started this book my amazing friend Jenny mentioned to me that once I’d finished reading this story, I should go read an update with John and Livvy a few years later on Inez Kelley’s website. I asked Jenny to remind me of this cause I might forget. I DID NOT forget. It was the first place I went as soon as I’d finished..because I NEEDED to know. I needed that final confirmation that John and Livvy were OK…that they were happy…!!! So I say to anyone reading this book…don’t forget..but I don’t think you will..!!)
