sins and mistrust


Marc Edwards is a male escort in Sin City. He’s used to being into whatever his clients are into, and doing everything they fantasize about. He’s also used to keeping parts of himself from the people closest to him, and denying himself what he truly wants. 

He gains a client who’s unlike any other client he’s had. Nathalia LaBelle actually tries to get to know non-escort Marc. She wants to find out what it is he fantasizes about, and isn’t bothered by the nature of his job. 

Has Marc found someone to open up to? Will Nathalia be able to handle what he desires? What he craves? Lines begin to blur, and Marc struggles knowing a relationship with a client is something that can’t happen. 

But what happens when Lincoln Cash, a man who has his own special relationship with Nathalia, comes into the picture with his own desires, rules, and sinful requests? Will they be able to get on the same page, or will mistrust run rampant and ruin everybody’s chances at getting what they want?

Author’s Note
While this is book three in The Escort Series, it can be read as a standalone. There is no need to read Living in Sin and Unforgivable Sin first, as this one starts in the time that Living in Sin did, and then follows through the series without giving much away about the first two. You may get some information regarding the other stories, but not much. Marc was scarce in those books, and we now get to see what he was up to.

Content Warning

This novel contains material not suitable for readers under age 18. M/F M/M M/F/M scenes exist within this book.

J&G:  It’s official!!  We’re GREEN WITH ENVY over a book character. Some girls get all the luck and if you’ve read Sins & Mistrust you’ll know that Nathalia LaBelle hit book character luck overload when she caught the attention of the uber sexy, brazen and super confident Linc and the uber, uber sexy, sensitive and beautiful Marc…not to mention these guys are DYNAMITE between the sheets.

In the words of Nelly…it’s getting hot in here and we don’t think we’ve cooled down since finishing this book yesterday. Why Isabel Lucero you saucy minx, what a sexy, kinky and lusty read this was.  Call the fire brigade because this was a HEAT FACTOR 10!  One of the hottest things we’ve read in a while that’s for sure!

“Marc,” I breathe, bringing our mouths closer together. “Kiss me.”

Note to author:  Is there a video of the goings on in this book somewhere because we need visuals! You know…for **cough cough** research purposes! We need to understand exactly what limb was in where, on where and around where. Just thinking about it makes us all hot and bothered!

Although the sex was absolutely OFF THE CHARTS and knicker melting good it didn’t override the emotion of the story because we felt every conflicted feelings between Marc and Linc especially.  There really wasn’t any question for us regarding the feelings between Nathalia and they guys, they were quite an open book, so for us it was the powerful passion and heart beating moments between these two gorgeous men that had our hearts and pulses racing!

‘There’s no way I’m letting go of this man.’

Nathalia wanted to know the real Marc as opposed to ‘Marc the Escort’ Marc was in the business of pleasing others, giving into their wants and here was a woman who wanted to know what Marc wanted and it was a refreshing change for him. Marc was without question used to give rather than take.

The passion, the heat and the lust between Marc and Linc was palpable to say the least! Linc chipped away at Marc’s carefully constructed walls bit by bit as he attempted to persuade Marc to let him in (no pun intended…oh alright then).

“You fuck me like you can’t get enough, and when you kiss me you steal the breath right out of me. We have this passion that even you can’t deny, but you don’t let me in.”

The friendship dynamic between Troy, Jace and Marc is apparent and it’s something we particularly love about this series. Their brotherhood and friendship seems to strengthen as the series progresses.

“We celebrate together, we mourn together, we cry together and we rise together. Never alone.”

The sweet between Nathalia and Marc was in contrast to the sheer animal heat between Linc and Marc and each balanced the other perfectly and when the three come together (hmmm what’s with those puns!) it’s explosive!

‘…and in that moment I realize I’m watching two people express their love for the other without words. It’s beautiful.’

Once we started we couldn’t put this book down. We were there with these characters every step of the way which is why we felt a little let down at the end. We had a lot of build-up but needed more ‘afters’. We needed to know how they prevailed plus there were questions we needed answered. Marc went through such a life altering change it would have been lovely to see him settled in the open.

At the end of the book the author has stated her intentions to write more of their story and that’s great, because we definitely want more. However, we would have preferred the ‘more‘ to have been included in this book as the ending felt rather abrupt.  This was our only bug bear in what was an addictively HOT story!  LOVED IT and highly recommend picking up Sins and Mistrust…preferably near a freezer!

“Part of me wants to pretend I have you, but another part thinks I’ll die if you don’t tell me you love me, even if it doesn’t change anything. Even if it’s just getting to hear it one more time.”


‘It’s such a simple word – just four letters. Home. But there aren’t enough letters in the alphabet in the world to capture the meaning of it.’

SWEET MEMORY (The Painted Daisies #1) by LJ EVANS

“I’m afraid I’ll fall completely, head-over-heels in love with you, and that you’ll fall back. I’m afraid we’ll discover we’re the missing pieces of each other’s souls.
The words had a beat -a rhythm- like it was a song she’d already written.
