Product description

Product Description

I’ve watched him from afar for years. And he has no idea. I take joy in that.

Through my observations, I’ve learned what makes this charming villain tick.
Beautiful women.
And Sex. Lots of it.

Sometimes you must get into bed with the enemy for the greater good. And that’s what I’ll do; it’s all part of making Sinclair Breckenridge fall in love with me so I can penetrate his inner circle.

There’s hell to pay.
I’m a dark horse. The perfect storm.
I am Bleu MacAllister. And I’m coming for him.

Intended for readers ages 18+ due to sexual content, adult situations, and language.

3.75 stars--A NECESSARY SIN is the first installment in Georgia Cates’s adult, contemporary The Sin Trilogy erotic, romantic suspense series focusing on twenty five year old, former FBI Special Agent Bleu MacAllister, and heir to the Scottish Fellowship Crime syndicate twenty six year old Sinclair Breckenridge.

Told from alternating first person points of view (Bleu and Sin) the focus of the storyline is two fold: the building relationship between Bleu and Sinclair; and Bleu’s revenge for the murder of her mother. Eighteen years earlier, Bleu’s mother was murdered and a seven year old Bleu was left for dead-asphyxiated by a well dressed man with a Scottish brogue. Fast forward to present day and Bleu’s need to avenge her mother’s death has become all encompassing. In order to get near the man she hopes to kill, Bleu will have to seduce the son and make him believe that she is the woman of his dreams. Falling in love with the enemy was never in the plans. Bleu is ‘obsessed with finding her attacker’ and she will have to infiltrate the world of organized crime.

The relationship between Bleu and Sin is one of immediate attraction but Bleu is in Scotland to complete a job-kill Thane Breckenridge-the man she believes murdered her mother. Sinclair Breckinridge is a sexy, powerful, intelligent and dangerous man-the heir to the Fellowship Crime Syndicate and a man Bleu has been led to believe has no problems killing on demand. His attraction and need for Bleu finds Sinclair claiming Bleu as his own but in order to protect the woman with whom he has fallen in love, Sinclair must risk his own life at the hands of the people he calls family and friends. Both Sin and Bleu face both internal and personal conflicts. The sex scenes are erotic and sensual.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read 18 January 2017

A Necessary Sin is the story of Bleu MacAllister, a young woman who as a child lost her mother to murder and was nearly killed herself. Bleu spends her childhood thirsting for revenge against the man she believes committed the murder, Scottish crime lord Thane Breckenridge. She spends her teen years under the tutelage of her adopted father a retired FBI agent learning how to become a assassin. When she is twenty-five, she decides that the time is right to infiltrate the "fellowship" and get her target via his son Sinclair Breckenridge.

This is a hard review to write because while I liked the premise of this book. An independent, strong, willful woman seeking justice on her own terms. The problem is that there are several plot points that just don't work for me. Bleu's age and naivety being foremost. I understand that the author has her "training" for this since she was twelve years old so we are supposed to take that as 13 years of experience but she is going up against a decades old crime family and seducing the son when she admits that to having zero experience with men. Pair that will her adoptive father being a retired FBI and his going along with this plan and the story goes over the line of believability for me.

The writing itself is good with a nice balance between character interaction and internal dialogue. The story switches back and forth between Bleus POV and Sin's POV so you can get a good idea of where each character is coming from. I did find Sin's character well done though a bit naive like Bleu. For someone who was groomed to be the crime syndicates leader from birth, Sinclair seems to fall for Bleu and trust her almost too easily.

At 228 pages this is a decent sized read for the start of a trilogy and includes a host of secondary characters that round out the story nicely and adds a few subplots that fill out the main story well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent, but not great 15 September 2015
By S. Blanchard - Published on

This story was fairly good, but I only gave it three stars due to some odd inconsistencies and the author's sparse writing style. The writing style was the biggest hurdle for me since I tend to prefer stories with more description and more sensual language. The author tended to keep things very simple with lines like, "He laughed" which tells us only the most basic information. Was it a deep laugh? A husky laugh? A bark of laughter? I'm a reader who likes those kinds of details. Her writing style also left out a lot of scenic description, leaving me to wonder what most of the characters looked and sounded like. I got a great view of their characters, but had a hard time picturing their physical presence. It wasn't until book three that we got to find out that Sin's mother is a redhead, and that lack of detail tends to bother me. The sparse writing style also made it extremely difficult to figure out who was speaking on so many occasions that I couldn't even count them. I repeatedly had to go back to re-read passages once I'd figured out who was speaking. I also felt the author should have clarified some of the Scottish slang that she tosses in on occasion. I'm fairly comfortable with it, but there were a number of times that I had to take a guess about the meaning of the slang being used, only to figure out later on that I had been wrong.

The inconsistencies also included some really odd situations. For example, Bleu is saying that she's a photographer as her cover story. But when Sin's uncle sends an assassin after her and she kills him with her bare hands, Sin doesn't even question it. He just says his girl is a bad*ss and moves on. Sorry, but no. No one is going to believe that the average woman would wake up in the middle of the night, see a man in her bedroom trying to kill her, and then just calmly strangles him to death and waits for her boyfriend to come home so he can clean up the mess. Bare minimum, he should have questioned her complete lack of emotion regarding the whole thing.

The early portion of the book also lacked some flow and just didn't work for me. Bleu was supposedly seducing Sin by being a higher caliber of woman than he was accustomed to, but she came across as more of a spoiled brat than a strong woman who knows her own value. I just couldn't see why Sin would find her so intriguing after all the attitude she threw at him, and I didn't feel the author made that clear enough. Sin is a wealthy and powerful man who can have whatever he wants - why he was so fascinated with Bleu and her snarky demands was beyond me. However, I liked the premise enough to move on to the second and third stories, even though I hate cliffhangers with a passion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!! 12 January 2015

I feel like Alice in Wonderland when I read a Georgia Cates novel. I fall immediately down the rabbit hole and I don't want to leave. Such was the case, again with "A Necessary Sin". From the first sentence I was hooked and then I could not stop reading. The story line has been summarized by a few other commenters, so I won't do that here. Suffice to say, I fell completely in love with Bleu and Sin and their story. This is a trilogy and this novel ends with a cliffhanger and I am already counting the days until the second novel is out. Even though I am anxious to start the second and I groaned when the first one ended, Georgia leaves me completely satisfied with the characters, their relationship - physical (which is erotic and hot and sexy), and emotionial, and the evolving storyline, which was terrific.

I have already pre - ordered the second novel and if the third was up for pre-order would get that one, too. I know in advance I will love each successive piece. That is not something I can say about every multi series story that I read.

This was terrific!!!

There's more than meets the eye!

When Stella Is a young girl her mother is murdered and she's smothered leaving the perpetrator thinking he finished her off too. But it's far from that. She survived and she's out for vengeance.
The only way she can get even is get in with the son of her mother killer. Only problem is she falls out for a monster and it ends up burning her in the end. In book 1 we learn about her mothers death, her childhood, and a little bit about how she wants to seek revenge. Can't wait to read more on this series!!! Loving sin and bleu!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Refreshing Change from the Ordinary 2 January 2015
By Gina S. - Published on

Georgia's Beauty from Pain is one of my favorite books and while the trilogy was satisfying overall, books 2 & 3 did not captivate me as much as I had hoped. So with that said and much hype preceding the release of A Necessary Sin, I was a bit skeptical about her living up to my expectation. I'll tell you what I liked about ANS's original and well-written and at the onset I got hooked into Bleu MacAllister's sad fate. Parts of the story's development lacked how she could breach the Fellowship's tight security so easily as an American outsider getting a job at one of its own pubs without as much as a background check. Initially, too I didn't feel that Sin and Bleu had the mind altering chemistry that two lead characters typically do in books like this. Nonetheless, I stuck with the story. And surprisingly, it turned out to be terrific. I must say that the second half was a page-turner and the ending, a cliff-hanger. Now for what I LOVED about ANS... it was sexy, but not gratuitously so. Bleu and Sin are the perfect match - mind, body & soul, the missing piece between two damaged hearts. Not all is as it appears, which made the story intriguing and suspenseful. I loved the "in the name and honor of family" perspective interestingly with one character's predestined life being devoid of influence by his loving mother and the other's being forever altered by the loss of a loving mother that was everything to her. I read two to three books a week, so I am quite selective about authors, storylines, etc. Georgia did a stellar job with this one, pacing it well, making it intriguing and engaging. I cannot wait for the next two installments and am thrilled that we don't have to wait long for the rest of this captivating story.
