This book…just…woah.

I think if you looked under “sexiest criminal” you’d find Vince’s name. It’s not so much that he literally sweats sex, but more about how complex he is. He’s lived the life of criminal. He’s been the crime boss and lost it all. Now with Jayne King at his side, he’s set his sights on rebuilding his empire. Granted the empire focuses on sex, sin, and sinfully beautiful women. You literally cannot imagine Vince ever wanting to have a monogamous relationship at all. I don’t thin

In this book Damned Sinner, by Jami Denise you will meet a man that has vowed to rebuild his life.

Rebuilding is the name of the game and when it comes to moving forward, Vince has a plan.
This demanding, intensely sexy and powerful man is on the bounce, determined to find his way back up after he finds himself at rock bottom.
Life has kicked Vince around and now this sexy arsed man is determined to let nothing stand in his way back to the top.
I have to say that I found Vince to be an amazingly diverse character.
He shows fortitude and acumen that few would fathom and that to many that has exp

Love the bad boys!

Who was Vince Donovan? His life had been a struggle from the time he pulled his first hustle. Vince made his fortune on the seamier side of hard work. He was smart, straddling the law as best he could while creating no entanglements along the way. Jayne King was his best friend and was the sister he never had. She continued to provide the kick in the butt he needed as he tried to rebuild his life closer to the letter of the law. To add to his struggle, he was in love with Kelse

As has been the norm lately, I entered into a book right in the middle of the series. Granted, DAMNED SINNER can be read as a stand alone, but I think it would have helped endear me to Vince if I could have gotten a better understanding of him. Quite frankly, it wasn't until the very end of the book that I even liked Vince a tiny bit.

Vince and Kelsey have history. He helped protect her when her sister and her wrongdoings caused her to be on the radar of the wrong type of people. Of course, being

I received a ARC from the author in exchange for an honest opinion. This is mousiey very honest opinion of her book THE DAMNED SINNER. Ms Denise has a way with writing that will captive you from the first page of her book, And keep you hungry for more of the story until you have finished it. Then you are still left with wanting more from from this amazing author. Her characters are so life life and real. You can picture them actually being right there in Las Vegas.

Damned Sinner (Jayne series #3)
By: Jami Denise
5/5 stars

This is Vince and Kelsey’s book and it is written from Vince’s POV, and for me, that really made the book! I liked Vince in the other books and after the second book, I hoped that he would get his own book with Kelsey.

Vince has always been a protector throughout his life. Once he was grown enough, he became a protector to his mother and his sister. Then, after he met Jayne, he became her protector and has never stopped, even though she and F

We got a bit of a look at Vince and Kelsey at the end of Queen of Hearts. She's the sister to the woman who cause an enormous amount of trouble. She's also under his protection. As much as Vince wants her, he won't admit it to her or himself. He's not good enough for her and has chosen the path that won't lead to her broken heart.

Kelsey is in love with Vince. He's her protector when he didn't have to be, shouldn't have been. He's cared when so many others haven't. She wants him with everything i

I have to say that this book is a great addition to the series. While all the books are great, Jami seems to kick it up a notch with this one. Definitely one to read. Who is Vince Donavan? He is no other than an extremely stubborn man who has struggled since his first deal. He is moody, angry and difficult all rolled up into an alpha male, full of sex appeal. His life has not been a walk in the park. He made his living by avoiding the law and living below the radar. This is

A truer test to ones self control. That was Vince, trying to keep away from the one thing he desired above all the one thing he didn't wan to ruin. The one person that would ruin him, he just needed to keep away from Kelsey.
Kelsey fell in love with her knight in shinning armor, well maybe not shinning armor, but her man that saved her life, Vince. But trying to convince Vince that she was, a- old enough to know what she wants and needs. B- She has convince him that he is worthy of her and that l

4-1/2 stars
Does the words "redemption" or "reinvention" apply to Vince? Probably not, but it's a bit of both mixed with "rebuilding" so I think it's suitable to throw them out there when I think about what Damned Sinner meant to me. There's definitely no shortage of determination from all characters involved, especially Vince and Kelsey. On the surface they appear to be very different but for me, it's that determination they both have that cemented their connection. Granted, what is driving thei

It's a MUST READ, I do recommend reading books 1 and 2 before hand to give you some since of what's going on and who's who. I really enjoyed my time reading this story I wish their is more, hell I;'m craving more of the shocking road that I took with the story to the really great ending I couldn't get enough. Not enough Vince, Flynn, Jayne, or Kelsey. It's an attention grabber, earth moving piece that the author has done an outstanding job with. It's so worth the read.

I have received this book in exchange of an honest review.
Even though this book is part of a series you can definitely read it as a standalone.
I really enjoyed this book and the characters. Vince is such a different character. For a while there I really didn’t know if I should like him or not. He’s complex and difficult but he’s also very protective. He’s definitely a bad boy to the core but we all like the bad boys in books, right?
The plot is actually very interesting and so is the love story.

This guy.
I have to say, I love Vince so so much. I was happy giddy Jami Denise wrote him a story of his own for me to gobble up. To watch him beat himself up over not being deserving of love hurt, but watching him with Kelsey? *died* I adore that girl. The protectiveness that is inborn in this man kills me. I don't care how bad he is. He's fucking awesome. And how fun was it to see Jayne and Flynn from afar? From Vince's perspective. I just love love love love loved it.
Best way to put a cherry

Yep, it's official. This is my favorite of the three. Jayne and Flynn were great, but Vince is just a powerhouse in every sense. I loved the push and pull between Vince and Kelsey. How different the two of them were, but still came together. Loved the twists and turns in the story and the way it all ended up. And the heat level? Geez! Hang on tight and get ready for the ride.

Definitely, my favorite of the series.

Vince Donovan has been a constant in Jayne’s life for so long. He is an Alpha with an extremely stubborn streak. His hard life has turned him into a moody man who answers to no one. Devoted to Jayne, he is very protective of those who need it.

While helping Jayne in Vegas, he came across Kelsey Franklyn, sister to the woman who has unleashed the tragedy currently following them. Thirteen years his junior, he thinks of her as forbidden despite the obvious attraction between them. This book had me

I enjoyed this book, as the story is unique and the characters are interesting. I wish I had read the first two books before I read this one. Although I thought this could be read as a stand alone, I think I would have enjoyed the book much more if I had read the first two books in the series prior to this one. Overall, I would recommend this book, if you enjoy plots that are unique.
