Wow!! This story grabbed me right from the beginning and it refused to let me go until the end, wishing…no, hoping that Jacksin would get the closure and happiness he so deserved.

Oh, that Sinful Sin—he's a hard-headed a$$ and stubborn like heck! He knows he's right and he'll do whatever he has to, to prove it. Little did Sin and Emily realize, their feelings would take root and refuse to let go until they both gave in.

This was an emotional read, which had me on pins and needles, rooting for

Sin has lost his world. His daughter was everything to him and when her health declines so does the life Sin still has left in him. The only thing waking him up every day is his need for revenge on the man who took her from him.
Its not what you think, sorta. The man Sin is after is a doctor. He could have saved Sin's precious princess but instead he was told that he's met his quota for the year for any pro bono procedures. Sin's life shatters before him.
Sin's days are filled with deep sorrow

Utterly amazing story written by two incredible authors! The characters were extremely well written. The story line unique and strong. Sin's pain tugs at your emotions, his taste for revenge tempts you and his passion will drive you over the edge. His heartache will become your own while Emily's need unlocks your darkest fantasies.

When Sin's world is turned upside down, I could feel every emotion. His fight to to reclaim his life became my own. When Emily steps into the picture his entire plan

I liked Sin. He was damaged but I understood it. I understood his thought processes, his grief, his attraction to Emily, his need for revenge. I understood that.
The was nice sex scenes.

Emily was an okay character. I just got irritated with her because I felt like she did not have enough self preservation, enough self respect and self esteem to try harder to leave. How do you walk in a park and try not to run or escape? How does "the police" show up at your door step and you don't try to

This is one of the best books I’ve read in quite a while and I was completely floored by how

much I loved every single thing about this book! When I read the synopsis I immediately knew I just had

to read this, but even that did little to prepare me for what a well thought out and incredibly all-

consuming book this was going to turn out to be. This is a story that stays with you long after you’re

finished reading it and makes you feel every single emotion there is from the first page to the

The Wrath of Sin is the new standalone novel from Tabatha Vargo, now I’m a massive fan of this authors Blowhole Boys series but I will admit I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect from this book.

I have a real mixed feeling about this book, I liked it but I’m not sure if I should have. Now that may sound odd but this is such a delicate subject matter, Emily falls in love with Sin who let’s be honest has some mental

There aren't enough stars in the world to tell you how incredibly fulfilling this book truly is.Have you ever read a book where you were completely and utterly consumed? I'm talking you don't put that book down for NOTHING!!! I don't think I have ever read a book that has bound me to my seat with my heart pounding and absolutely shattered my heart. This isn't a genre I would normally read. I would say this is dark in a way, but there is no way that I would ever pass this book by. I cried. I had ...more

The Wrath of Sin is one of those books that will pull on your heartstrings from beginning to end. Once I started reading 1) I quickly realized I needed to keep some tissue handy and 2) I didn't want to stop.

Sin is a man tortured by the loss of someone he loved more than life itself. As time passes and the longer he has to stew in his own heartache the angrier and more unstable-ish he becomes. He's determined to make the man he sees as responsible for his loss pay.

But his plans take a bit of a

This is quite a shortish book, but yet i still found myself captivated by it. Although the subject of the story was difficult and we all know the pain of losing someone we love so much, i found myself totally understanding all the difficult emotions that Sin was going through, the devastation, the heartache, the pain, the anger, the turmoil, but yet although he felt he was turning into a monster it was also clear that he was a good man.
Sin just can't come to terms with losing his little daughter

This book started out a little slow for me, which seems a little ridiculous seeing as though it was so full of crazy. Seriously I was wicked nervous about how insane Sin was acting and really saw this story taking a bad, bad turn.
Once we finally get introduced to Emily and their first encounter things started to pick up. The crazy didn't stop.
All I kept thinking was, how can I possibly find Sin so incredibly hot while he was acting like such a maniac? The heat between him and Emily

I am just loving the darker side of Tabatha Vargo, add Melissa Andrea and you have one hell of a good book!

Sin is at the bottom of the barrel and dwelling in it like a day at the beach. He doesn't want to deal with anything and can only think of getting his revenge back on the one person that ruined his life and took the best thing that had ever happened to him away. When he meets Emily, retribution is the only thing plan he has for her. But Sin is about to learn about angels....

I didn't know how I felt about this book once I started it. I still have mix feelings about it. This book is wonderfully written. It flows nicely together.
I hated that Sin humiliated, hurt Emily's feelings constantly and went after her to get to her father. What's even worst is she has feelings for him. He makes her doubt herself. He knows that he's being a jerk, that the way he's treating her isn't right but he keeps right on doing it.
I felt for Jacksin and his loss. I understood his pain and

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this book. It is an awesome read. I know I teared up at the end a couple times. Jacksin, "Sin", is a grieving father. I think any parent would feel like he did, if they thought the same thing happened to their child, and that it could have been prevented. I wouldn't take it as far as he did, but I could understand where he was coming from. I would want to kill the bastard too. Emily, is the daughter of the surgeon, that didn't save Jacksin's ...more
Sin has lost his young daughter to heart failure and he blames her doctor for her death. He is depressed, emotional and is self medicating with alcohol. He refuses to get any sort of grief consoling or talk to anyone, he decides to punish the doctor by taking his daughter, Emily. Emily is a grief counselor (how convenient!) and admires her father. Sin stalks her, they met at a bar and on a dare Emily kisses him. They are instantly attracted to each other, then Sin holds Emily hostage in her own ...more

Not sure where I am with my thoughts on this story. It was utterly heart wrenching to see a man so lost in grief over his daughter. The writing was smooth ( although it goes from her thoughts to his thoughts. always a point of contention with me. to reread the same situation twice with no real difference.)

Jacksin Was on the verge of killing himself with grief, when he gets the great notion to get back at the Dr. Who he blames. Interesting, spin on a guy drowning in despair. Then while stalking

He was really suffering a hard loss, i could feel his pain and inner war through the pages.....he lived for his revenge!

She was a doctor living a boring life and wanted something exciting to happen to her.....and like they say watch out for what you wish,she got what she wished for...... She was kidnaped!

He was rough,intense, hot, gentle and furious...a lost soul!
She was fierce,brave, kind and has a heart filled with light !

Revenge never solves anything, will never remove the pain but when planing revenge leads you to love just maybe...

This beautiful written story is filled with emotions such as anger, heartbreak, passion, and love.
Melissa Andrea and Tabatha Vargo capture the reader's heart telling this story of Broken man planning revenge and a woman who want more in her life then the ordinary. Their paths collide changing their lives forever. One life learning to live again, the other finding the spark that has

Can you say book hangover????

I had no idea what to expect out of this book. I went in blind, I'm glad I did though. Not the type of book I'd normally grab, but it was great. The characters, wow, what can I say? You could feel Jacksin's pain, my heart broke for him. No one should experience that loss, especially not a parent.
I laughed, I cried, I was pissed off, and cried some more. I'm glad there was a happy ending, I would've been crushed otherwise. Totally not your typical love story, but

WOW! This story has so much power over your emotions. This was nothing that I expected. I cried, laughed and even cussed at the characters in this story. All I wanted to do is jump in to this book. His chary. Just saying Sin's name out loud makes you want to jump in to this book. His character is what all women want and fantasize about. He is a heart broken man and all I wanted was to become part of the story and help him. Emily's character is equally as charming! After everything that he put ...more

I really liked this book, it was a little dark, not much just a little but it was still really good. I love Jacksin, he is sexy, strong, dominant, loving, and loyal. I could feel every bit of his pain because of the author, my heart broke for him. You could feel the chemistry between Sin and Emily right from the start, I kept thinking have sex already geesh. I loved how Sin told Emily to beg for him, they just sizzled. I love how it ended, I was bawling my eyes out. Great story, nice mix of ...more

I won this book in a flash draw - This was an amazing story. Jacksin lost his daughter due to heart failure, everyone around him dies, he decides revenge is best, he targets the Doctor who denied Jacksins daughter an operation due to his monthly pro bono quota, and the little girl dies. Jacksin ends up kidnapping the doctors daughter, Emily. This story delves into different subjects, including death, and how the person that is kidnapped falls in love with the kidnapper. I would recommend this ...more

I didn't really connect with this book or it's characters. I found myself really bored around the 30% mark and kept internet surfing. So I started skimming. I skimmed until about 80% and the. Read the rest and maybe I guess that's why I. Opulent connect with the love the main protags felt for each other. It was a decent plot but it could have been more, been executed better.

So 1.5 - 2 stars from me.

This is a fairy tale of epic proportions. It's dark, hot, and emotional...and also healing. It is such a beautiful story. You meet a man so lost in grief that he can't do anything but seek revenge. You have a woman who is bored with life, but not at all ready for the events that are about to unfold in her life. This story is heartbreaking yet you'll be left feeling full. A 5 star read that you don't want to miss out on!!

The story in this book is about two people at both extremes of the spectrum, one is bored with life, the other is using every ounce of life they have to excel at revenge and devastation. Shock circumstances force our two characters together and then something transpires between the two. They see something in each other that could provide them with more and this develops. A very interesting story with some surprises and kept me surprised with the twists.A very good read.
