It was always him. The one I shouldn't want, shouldn't crave, the one who could destroy my carefully built life.

Hagen Lykaios was the essence of sin, indulgence, and danger - everything I knew to avoid.

All it took was one unexpected touch, and he consumed me, left me begging, needy, and hungry for more.

He said if I entered his world he would corrupt me, own me, and change

SOAPBOX: I'll be honest I took a star off this book over the fact that the heroine was a 27-year-old virgin. I am SO tired of this trope. There was legit ZERO reason this heroine needed to be a virgin at her age. She was successful. She went to college. She apparently had multiple degrees and built her own company, and she was a-ok with getting kinky; her being a virgin was eye rolling. It's 2019, can we just please STOP with this type of heroine...sigh.

A full and complete story.
A nice twist to the virgin heroine and the possessive and rich boyfriend. I liked the writing style, the story and the characters. Some interesting side characters, too. I bet there are more stories to tell.

Master of Sin was a very sexy story in the new Gods of Vegas series by Sienna Snow about Penny (Persephone Starlight Kipos) and Hagan "Master of Sin" Lykaios. This story was sexy and so addicting. I could not stop reading.

Without giving away any spoilers, this story is full of long lost family secrets, betrayal and SO much drama. I loved how enamored Hagan and Penny both were of each other and the palpable sexual chemistry between them! Their fiery intensity came right off the pages. I also love

I respect whatever you like, but you have to remember that your readers might not be from that political party, and when you associate your accounts with so much things on politics, it makes it seem you are targeting only one audience. I will remove your books, and allow your party to enjoy yours if they are good of course.

A well-known story, and so new at the same time. The myth of Persephone and Hades but set in modern times, ‘Master of Sin’ is the first book in the all new Gods of Vegas. Outstanding story that will simply nail you to the pages and you will not be able to stop reading from start to finish.

Sexy and sinful beginning to what I am assuming will a series.

Persephone or Penny or Starlight, has a lot of hidden secrets. To the world, she is just trying to do what is right by her father's company. She tries not to step out of line or make her evil step-monster upset. But she is really more than meets the eye. She is a fierce businesswoman and not a naive as she lets on.

Hagen is a king of Vegas. He is the Master of Sin, all bad boy and has been known to get his hands dirty. He has

Master of Sin is fantastic! The anticipation was absolutely worth the wait! Outstanding from start to finish! The central characters are pragmatic, genuine and multi-faceted. I am absolutely captivated by Persephone, an intelligent, independent, self-disciplined woman with a feisty personality, and Hagen, a billionaire bad boy with a huge capacity to love and the determination to pursue the woman he has always considered "his one". The supporting characters add a depth to the story and provide e ...more

Thia is my first read from Ms. Snow and its A HIT! I had some expectarions for this read after reading the blurb and The title.
I got this and A LOT more. Characters were so multilayered that I had moments where I was looking my Kindle and thinking HOW those action can be so real! Yet they were and this made this read so so Good.
Plot is complicated as everyone and everything is connected but not at all as you would think about it while reading. Many twists and turns added A lot of pleasure to re
I really enjoyed the story of Penny and Hagen. I was sad when I reached the end though. Sienna did a great job bringing these two to life. You have a bit of mystery with a love story that was in the making years ago for two childhood friends.
Circumstances kept them apart but will circumstances bring them together?
A must read! Easy to follow along and filled with hot sex scenes. Stubborn and strong headed describes the main characters. Smart and sexy is another. But you'll fall in love with both

This is my first read by this author and it certainly won’t be the last as this was a great read.

Hagan and Penny are two likeable characters that are hot together. Their chemistry is off the charts.

Two relatable characters with a great storyline. I’m looking forward to reading more from this author when the secondary characters get their own stories:)
If your looking for a well written story with suspense and romance then give this a try.

This story is an instant-love story that feels like a modern-day fairytale retelling. It is a tropie storyline with a 27 yr old virgin and the alpha male in Vegas just felt a little overdone. However I did enjoy the depth of the characters, and the storyline kept me intrigued until the end.

This was the start of a series I totally got into reading, you can read them as a stand alone, it's great to follow the rest of the characters in their own stories also. These characters are Penny and Hagen. Hot in the bedroom and out. She is a master chreator of whiskey and he comes from Mafia territory it's fast paced with humour, adoration and love. Recommend reading this. ...more

Before you start be warned that the heat level of this book is OFF THE CHARTS! I found myself having to drink cold water and take breaks to calm the heat! Hagen and Penny’s chemistry could be felt with every interaction they shared! From the second he is mentioned you can feel the need Penny has for him and him for her! Their attraction is undeniable but for love to bloom their needs to be more and Hagen isn’t sure he can be that more!

What I love about this story is that it isn’t straight eroti

Master of Sin is the first book in the all new Gods of Vegas series and also my first Sienna Snow book ever. This was all kinds of hot and sexy with the perfect blend of suspense and laugh out loud moments. The writing was excellent and flowed super nicely, nothing stalled no matter what was going on. From the characters to the setting and even the playful, witty banter, I was all in with this story, literally finishing in one day and already d

Penny is a complex character with plenty of hidden secrets that she has had to keep undisclosed, to protect her brother as well as the legacy they have inherited. But when the evil stepmother decides to throw her weight around, it sends Penny into the arms and protection of Hagen Lykaios. He is the one man she has loved since she was a little girl. He is also the same man who has a reputation of being the devil himself. Hagen can’t deny his attraction to Penny his sta

Starlight is a take no prisoners, one surprise after another leading lady! She is witty, intelligent and passionate about her work and her family. Having dedicated her life to caring for her brother and pursuing her love of botany and science - not to mention the full-time job of thwarting her step mother's claws, life (maybe with a little help from her stepmom) suddenly presents her with an opportunity to let go and live for once. As much as she enjoys control the idea of temporarily pursuing h ...more

I’m not exactly a stranger to Sienna Snow’s books but this one had a different feel to it. It was the perfect mix of tender and hot romance with some suspense. Persephone is currently an heiress to her father’s business but being basically held captive by her terrible stepmother. The only thing keeping her captive is her desire to keep her younger brother safe from the woman who they suspect killed their father. This book is full of passion, hot sex, some tender love and of course some kink. Hag ...more

Where do I begin with this review...... I loved this book. It had everything I love in a good romance book and to top it off the Heroine is a virgin. I love when the heroine is pure and she loves someone so much he is the one to take her virginity. It is a special thing to give away so with someone special who will love you and cherish you and give you amazing sex yes it sold me on the book.

Penny is trying to keep the company her father started, his dream, from being sold out from under her and her brother. Her step-mother is so far succeeding in taking over and now is trying to push Penny out. When Penny goes to Hagen, the man she has been in love with for forever, he offers to help her out, but for a price of course. What Penny doesn't know is that Hagen has been watching her just as long as she was watching him, and now being given the opportunity to

Reviewed on,
I don’t know what I was expecting, I read blurb which didn’t tell me much. Innocent girl taken of advantage by a guy who forces her into a relationship.
On the surface it could be that except Haden’s family had been part of Penny’s life for years, so it wasn't a meeting with a stranger.
Penny has always had a thing for Haden, and as we find out more we realises how much she means to Haden, and he introduces our innocent into a very hot and sexy love life.

Like so many queens of high-stakes family romance dramas before her, Sienna Snow has created a series you don't want to miss. I'm glad that I didn't! As I read this book, I was reminded of the sweeping sagas that Jackie Collins and Harold Robbins used to create, with very character's actions having ripple effects both dangerous and passionate. Because this was the first book world builder, there were a lot of cast members to meet and storylines to keep straight, but that only made me look forwar ...more

First book in the Gods of Vegas series following the Lykaios brothers. Hagen is the oldest brother who is the enforcer of the groups with ties to the Vegas underworld. The one person who can make his iron will bend is Penny his Starlight the girl he has wanted and loved since they were kids. Penny is a force to be reckoned with on her own beauty and a steel trap mind and is willing to do anything to protect her younger brother. Together Hagen and Penny should not make sense, but the h

WOW! Let me start by saying I love the characters Sienna Snow writes. I got turned on to her books because she doesn’t write the hopeless, broke woman. In Master of Sin Persephone “Penny” Kipos is a strong independent woman with more secrets than the only man she has set her sights on for as long as she can remember. Thankfully Hagan has been lusting after her for as long. Explosive chemistry between the two when they reunite after years of not seeing each other. Penny will continue to surprise ...more

This book was really engaging and interesting.I liked it very much.

This review is spoiler free and honestly all you need to know is that this book is about some family secrets,betrayal and lots of drama.

Starlight and Hagan are two horny,sexy and very much in love.
This book was mostly about their relationship.Don't get me wrong,there is some really interesting things happening in the background,but this book is mostly about them.
I loved their birth heritage,that was really nice and not so common

What a journey Sienna Snow has taken us on. This book just flowed so easily, it was like watching a movie in my mind as I read the script. The storyline and script were meshed with perfection as we were fed tidbit after tidbit until the pieces could be put together. The characters and sub-characters were perfectly matched and blended in all their flawed glory. Haegan and Starlight were the quintessential couple with their strong personalities and weakness for each other. I just absolutely loved ...more

What a fantastic read. I was sucked into this very real environment that the author has created. It puts you right where the characters are and it is so believable. Penny has a multitude of layers and Hagen, has as well, but I have to give this one to Penny. She outshines Hagen. I smiled quite a few times when we were shown some of her characteristics. The interactions of the brothers was hilarious and cryptic, can't wait to read about them. The girl team is just as enchanting, and I hope we get ...more
