His mere presence is a threat. A weapon I’d bet he wields meticulously yet unapologetically. He’s sinisterly beautiful. An intoxicating poison.

I told myself that 2020 will be the year that I try more new to me authors, and J Saman has been on my radar for way too long. So of course the second I saw the blurb to Darkest Sin, I knew this would be my first book by her. And after finishing, I can happily report that I'm hooked!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 STARS

This is the third book in the Las Vegas Sin series, but it can be read as a standalone. J. Saman is a new to me author and this is the first book that I've had the pleasure of reading. I loved all the characters in this story where I know that I will definitely be reading the other two books in the series. Gavin and Emma's story was masterfully dark and dangerous, with the ideal amount of dirty! Darkest Sin by J. Saman is an EPIC read that will join the ranks of the BIBLIO-ARI

CATCHING SIN by J. Saman is sexy, sensual and hot! It is also gritty, dark and filled with drama, page after sizzling page. J. Saman is new to me, and I am now a fan. I seriously enjoyed reading Darkest Sin. The book has everything that would keep any avid romance reader like me glued to every page. It has angst, it has suspenseful drama, emotions, banter and the sultry chemistry between Gavin and Emma was everything!

J. Saman’s DARKEST SIN is sinfully passionate on every level as life-threatening danger, deadly attraction and scorching romance come together in a raging inferno that started when one woman fell in love with the wrong man and those she loves are dying because of it. The only person standing between Emma and certain death is a darkly handsome and ruggedly terrifying assassin who swears he will keep her alive and safe, although safe may be a relative term.

Emma did so well, hiding in the shadows,
H O L Y H A D E S ! M I N D B L O W N ! ! ! I can always count on this masterful storyteller, but she has outdone herself with this gritty, thrilling, arresting story! Saman creates a dark, murky world where lines are blurred and right and wrong are muted shades of gray. Edgy, unvarnished and raw, the hero is a ruthless, emotionless rogue we should despise with our very being, but instead the reader is left worshipping at his feet, desperately begging for more.

What a wild and intense ride!! J. Saman is a new to me author and i'll be sure to check out her back list now! The blurb for this book caught my eye so I jumped on it. It is everything I love in a dark romantic suspense and i'm so glad I decided to read it. I was consumed by this dark and dangerous underground world hidden among the streets and bright lights of Vegas.

Darkest Sin was sinfully addictive from the very start. Once I started reading this one, I couldn’t put it down. This story completely sucks you in from the very first page. There are so many twists and turns throughout the story you truly have no clue what is going to happen next.

Emma is on the run. Everyone she loves is gone. She wants revenge. Then she meets the mysterious Gavin. He has been watching her. He knows her past. These two are drawn to each other. Despite the dangers and the risks

Fast-paced and full of twists and turns, Darkest Sin was a thrill ride! This story had it all: action, suspense, mystery, some laughs, and a lot of passion. Both leads were intriguing and captivating. Emma was capable, broken, and resilient. Her bravery and loyalty were endearing. Gavin is the best of the best and he knows it. He’s confident without being cocky and protective without being a jerk, I really loved his character. Then you put these two together and wow, they were off the charts. Th

Dark and wild ride

If you haven’t tried Saman’s work yet, it’s time to change that! There’s an intensity to her writing that hooks you in and doesn’t let go until the last page. Even when I was torn about some of the elements in this dark romance, she had me reeled into the story. It’s darker than I anticipated - a lot of that stems from the personalities of our antihero and antiheroine - but so addictive. This one’s for those who love a complicated romance, don’t shy away from darkness, and are

Put aside any preconceived idea's you have about this book from the title. Is this story hot? Hell yes but it is more than that - I would class it is a romantic thriller/suspense with more twist and turns than any modern day thriller you might have read.

Emma and Gavin are similar because of their dark souls and things that they’ve endured. She’s a survivor in her own way and so is he but for completely other things. They met in the most unconventional way but she wouldn’t let her guard down. Poor girl has been thru so much that she doesn’t trust easily. These two unexpectedly fall for each other even though it wasn’t part of Gavin’s plan and it was something they just couldn’t avoid. But it wasn’t an easy love story. They were secrets revealed ...more

Ever since reading the blurb I have been looking forward to this book. It's a new to me author and from the prologue alone I'll most likely be going back and reading the rest of the series.

The detailing is impressive, making you feel like you are skulking the streets of Sin City alongside the characters. In the beginning they are both elusive, not showing their cards to each other. Can trust be built on the shaky grounds of secrets and lies, or will the house of cards come tumbling down?

This is my first book by this author and what a book I picked for my first one. This is a dark and dangerous book that starts with a bang that makes you want to keep reading. Emma is a resourceful woman she's on the run and we see the toll it's taking on her mentally. When she encounters a mysterious man she's wary because she is aware not to judge first appearances.

This is my first but certainly not my last read by this author as I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Emma is a strong likeable character. When she sees something she shouldn’t have she finds herself on the run. Everything changes when Gavin enters her life. He comes across as a heartless hired assassin. I really like him. These two are explosive together.

Anna has been on the run for years, not knowing who or what lurks around each corner. Gavin is a contract killer that has been hired to protect rather than kill. When these 2 meet...sparks ignite. Unfortunately, Anna’s entire existence is about to come crashing down around her.

This is the first book I have read by this author. I enjoyed it so much that I went back and got the other 2 books in the Las Vegas Sin series. This can be read as a stand alone, but why would you want to?

J. Saman is one of those romance authors that always captures my heart right from the beginning with relatable female characters that are strong willed, intelligent and ready to face anything that's thrown at them. Many authors depend on weak-minded females to carry along a good romance novel, but Saman has women in her stories that I always admire and relate to.

Darkest Sin is not a different formula for Saman in this manner, where we have Emma who is on the run from her ex-boyfriend who tried

I’ve found a great new author who ticks all my boxes; (in no particular order) an exciting and solid storyline, lots of twists and turns, romance, fabulous suspense that has you wondering how things will pan out and interesting characters.

In this story, Emma is on the run from a past traumatic experience and Gavin is sent after her. Her instincts are peaked because she doesn’t trust he is just flirting with her. He is definitely more than he makes out, oh so much more.

He's has taken everything that meant something to her, and he will stop at nothing to get his hands on her again...

“Darkest Sin” was my first book from the author. This romantic suspense was a nice change from what I’ve read recently. The story is nothing like it seems at first and there are quite some surprises along the way!

Emma has been on the run for the last 5 years. Running from a man that vowed to kill her loved ones and then her, she’s been travelling from state to state and trying to stay hidden. For the last couple of months, she’s been in Vegas.
