This is another very well written book in the ongoing Sweet Sin series and this time it's Miles and Julia's story.
Julia and Miles have troubled pasts that are still affecting their lives to this day. Miles being part of the rock band Trained In Black has issues with alcohol addiction masking a tragic experience that ripped his heart wide open and one he has never fully recovered from. Julia as well has problems, and she deals with them in the only way she knows how; this woman is one strong lady and it comes across well in this story. When after two years Miles and Julia happen to bump into each again at a photo shoot, all those old feelings come roaring back towards them at full force.
All the characters in these books are interconnected so even though they can be read as standalone's you do get that added enjoyment of catching up with the characters we have previously read about, which is definitely a bonus.
This is a good all-round story that I enjoyed, however, for me, there wasn't quite enough "passion" in this story, not enough fire to make you hang on every word. I felt it fell a little flat in places where there could have been so much more angst. It was just a little predictable and safe for me.
This is Miles and Julia's story and right from the prologue you know this is going to be an emotional read.
Miles is known as the bad boy of the band but now we get to know why and what his demons are. His back story is heart breaking, the author writes it so well you feel his pain and devastation. Julia has her own troubles she has overcome so much to become a successful plus size model. I'm sure I won't be alone in identifying with her because it's so true to life.
I love the way the author wrote both characters how they accepted each other. When Miles looked at her all he saw was this beautiful strong successful woman and Julia saw the man beneath the addiction, she sees a sensitive man who could be the love of her life.
If you've read the previous books you will know that Miles book was never going to be an easy read but it was pitched perfectly.
