Truth is book one in the brand new Sinful Series by Trilina Pucci. First, let me get this out! OH MY GOSH!!! Okay, I feel better now! This book! You are going to feel anger and love, you are going to sigh and swoon, you are going to smile and gasp. I loved it.

Truth by Trilina Pucci is the first novella in her A Sinful Series. When I found out each story would be based on one of the seven deadly sins, I was sold! I don't know what it is about that topic, but it gets me everytime!  


Dominic King and Drew Matthews meet at a sex club, and after just one night, they realize what they feel for one another is far more than just physical desire. Drew just got out of a long unhealthy relationship, so when Dominic tries to take things further than

"Truth or dare, gorgeous"

I must confess my truth. I got a taste for the new drug and I'm addicted and Trilina Pucci has just become my main dealer! I fell in love with this story from the first page. The author knows perfectly well how to attract the reader's attention and not let it break away! Truth is a devilishly sexy and sensual story. It's such a good book that you get delightful thrills while reading.

At the beginning of this masterpiece, we meet 31-year-old Drew Matthews, who is an am

Sometimes you read a book and it just isn't for you. Doesn't make it a bad book by any means, just happens to not be your particular cuppa. Unfortunately this book just wasn't my particular cuppa.

If you enjoy insta-love and scorching hot erotica romance, you'll definitely want to check it out. Those things happen to be my kryptonite. I wanted more substance and less sex. Though I will admit, while the conne
After getting the job of her dreams, Drew decides it’s time to go for more in her life. With that in mind she meets Nick who appears to be everything a girl could want. However, after a year together it’s obvious that is not the case. With a lot of back and forth and, in my opinion, too much time spent on this relationship, the story moves forward and Drew is pulled into Dominic King’s world. This is where things start to get interesting.

King is a man to fear and for good reason. When he sees Dr

I was given an advanced readers copy of this book and have decided to leave a voluntary honest review. When I heard about all the hype about this book. I read the blurb and knew without a dought in. Y mind I needed to read truth. Now that I have read it I have to say all the hype was well worth it, truth blew me away. Trilina went way outside the box for juicy read. I was taken back by how much I couldn't stop reading it, now that I am finished I want and need more but first. Dominic damn that m ...more

Oh WHAT A BLAST OF A BOOK! This book is based on one of the seven deadly sins - ‘Lust’ and you most definitely need to read this. No. YOU’D WANT TO READ THIS!!! It will shred every ounce of lust you have in you. There’s so much more in the pages of this book that you need to read about.

Dominic King is an absolute beast! Loyal, dangerous, protective... the hero who stands for nothing and want nothing but your truth. He has my vote!!!

"I'll sit at your feet until you trust me to stand by your side."

New author! New voice! New series! I will say, first and foremost, that even while the book felt a little truncated in some spots, Trilina Pucci's VOICE is what I am very excited to hear more of. I liked the story a lot and felt that I was getting a full story, it was just the execution sometimes lacked complete cohesion. But, I don't want that to take away from the fact that I really enjoyed the book as a

"I can see her truth, she wants this, and the dare is a challenge she won't pass up."

This was a dark but beautiful story- one that takes you into a world that you will not want to leave. There are two strong and powerful characters, for different reasons, but yet together they will make your head explode and your knees weak. The story that Trilina weaves left me on a high because I can only imagine what's to come from her. I want all the characters in the book to get their story because I lo
This had a promising beginning when we meet Drew and get an inside view of the toxic relationship she had with Nick. We see how they meet and then how Nick becomes a controlling abusing asshole and how Drew becomes a doormat. Just when she decides to take her life back and dump Nick she meets King. They have an intense instant attraction and decide on a one night stand which turns into a 24 hour fling. Their fling was hot, and King was great. I could feel their connection and see Drew get her se ...more

DNF 34%.

Writing was OK. Nothing special. Boring mostly. And the sex which is supposed to be hot given this genre, was meh. I skipped a bunch. Like almost the whole first chapter about the ex. What’s the point of wasting all that writing just to say Drew had an assholish bf?

There just no “meat” (ironically given the h likes meat) to this story.

I have the second one too but not sure I want to waste time.

If I needed to beg my way back to Dominic King's good graces, I would crawl through fire to get to his majesty. He is a major alpha, knows what he wants and gets what he wants, perceptive, dangerous, devoted, loyal and is very aware of the potential of what Drew Matthews could mean in his life.

This story was H.O.T.T.T......Not erotica, but super HOTTTT scenes that will make your heart race and want to stick your head in the freezer for a tad bit.

I don't want to give too much away, but I will say

Trilina Pucci is a “new to me” author and I couldn’t be more excited that my book babes brought her to my attention. I went into Truth completely blind, for me that’s the most exciting way to experience words from a new voice. This is a great start to a new series and I couldn’t be more excited to get lost into Trilina’s world.

Drew and King have a bond the moment they meet one another in the most unexpected of places. The insta-connection between them seems a little unlikely, but once you get a

It was okay...

in my opinion,everything happened too fast and the way the story was headed I was supposed to believe in the more deeper feelings...I never got to experience that with the interactions of these characters... :/

Wow! This was a nee to me author. It was recommended to me by a friend. I am so glad that she thought of me because this book had me from jump! King is a total alpha! And the only time he was actually an a hole what when he was feeling vulnerable. Drew is the exact kind of woman I would look up to! I would want her to be my BFF so that I could try to steal some of her awesomeness. And she handles King like a pro!

If you know me, you know I enjoy a good anti-hero! Well Dominic King is the perfect combination of alpha and angel, though the latter is only in the way that he treats Drew.

The sexy scenes in this one were scorching, but I loved how committed and loving Dominic was to Drew. To the outside world he was a man to be feared, but never once was I concerned that he would turn that cruelty on Drew.

I flew through this one. It was a fun, sexy read that had me turning the pages and had a great set-up for

Wow! Fans of Insta-Love, this one here is for you! I haven't read a book where the characters connected so quickly in a long time. This was sexy and fast paced and I loved King. He was certainly alpha, a powerful man that many feared. His first meet with Drew is in his sex club and it was lust at first sight. There are hints of BDSM and while they don't really go there, this book was still HOT. I had issues with the inconsistency of both characters' peronalities and sometimes the story didn't se ...more

Truth by Trilina Pucci is an absolutely sinful, naughty and swoonworthy read! The first of seven in the sinful series definitely satiates your appetite. It's naughty in the very best possible way. It does not disappoint.

I loved Drew's character so much! Drew is feisty, independent and sexy. She knows what she wants and will take no prisoners getting it. She is such a strong character that I've grown to love and admire.

And well, I love every shade of Dominic King. Dark, Dangerous, alpha, loyal a

When Drew comes out of a bad relationship she could never have expected to meet moody, broody, dark and dangerous Dominic King at a high-end sex club. Unbeknownst to her, she is about to embark on a sexy journey of reestablishing her strength and inner fire. But what happens when doubts

For some unknown reason, I didn't want to pick the book and read it. Maybe it was the mention of a sex club, but I am not sure. It turns out that I was completely wrong and the book was actually very good. It took a darker and unexpected turn in the later chapters which felt a little out of place, but not in a way that bothered me. I liked the book more than I expected and I want to read more books by this author.

Well dayummmm !!! Now I’ll say this I’ve had some major issues reading as of late. I’ve picked up and put down so many books that I was ready to cry and I’m positive that it had nothing to do with the books themselves, I’ve just been in a funk.

And while I will admit that even going into this one I had my doubts because even some of my fav authors have been unable to get me out of the funk that I’m in.

This is my first book to read by this author and WOW—it was all-consuming, hot, and addicting! This came recommended to me at the perfect time when I usually hit my end of the year rut where everything is the same and I am craving that something different. Trilina Pucci's characters fall immediately head over heels when they meet, but both come with their pasts (and some secrets).

Wowsa! Talk about a read... I absolutely LOVED this story.

Dominic King is BBF done right. Deliciously dirty with serious shady undertones that made me love him even more. And Drew, well she gave me a girl crush. Smart, sassy and knew exactly what she not only wanted, but deserved. Their chemistry was EXPLOSIVE and their feelings poured from the page.

Add in some intrigue, a dash of kink and a group of side characters that I loved and you've got me hooked! Can't wait for more from this world

This was my first book from Pucci. And wow, just wow it was amazing. Both Drew and Nick were terrific characters on their own, but once they were together the chemistry and heat between them is hovering somewhere around a nuclear level. Drew is feisty and strong!

Dominic King is alpha and powerful! Drew & Dominic's connection is incredible! Perfect ending! Bring on more of this Sinful Series! A must read! That was hot! While I normally don’t like when the characters fall in love too fast, this b
