My least favourite one to date. The characters felt stiff and it was hard to grow on me. This one is about the youngest brother of Joshua and him being a photographer who wants to forget his father abandoning them. He has a one night stand with a model and they have a surprise pregnancy and this is them falling in love and getting past their demons.

Untamed Passion by Cat Schield is the sixth book in the multi-authored Dynasties: Seven Sins series and features a sexy one night stand and an ‘oops! unexpected pregnancy!’ romance.

Oliver Lowell has been paying for his mistakes for years, and frankly he’s getting tired of it. Yes, after his father fled from an embezzlement charge that ruined the reputation of Black Crescent Investment Firm and the lives of many of his victims, including his family, Oliver sunk into an abyss of drinking and party

I received an advanced ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review and I want to thank them for the opportunity.

Unfortunately this one had tropes that are not for me and I didn't expect to read in a Harlequin Desire book. (view spoiler)

Oliver and Sammi’s book was one of my favorites of this series! I love an accidental pregnancy storyline, and this one was just sooo good. I felt for Oliver, and what he was going through, but Sammi really stole the book! Plus, I got my theories about the central mystery validated! I can’t wait for the conclusion in the last book!

Fifteen years ago, Vernon Lowell stole millions of dollars from his family and clients at Black Crescent Investments. He later disappeared without a trace, never to be seen or heard from again. The Dynasties: Seven Sins series shows the fallout of his actions and how they affected not just his heirs, but the heirs of the families he stole from as well.

Untamed Passion, written by Cat Schield, is the sixth book in the series. The story focuses on the youngest Lowell son Oliver and has a different
Since I knew going in that this book was not a favorite trope, I mentally adjusted my expectations because I really want to complete this entire series. And I was excited to read about Oliver! I've been intrigued by the other Lowell brothers this entire series. But unfortunately for me, this installment just didn't work for me for reasons aside from the accidental pregnancy after a one night stand. Also unfortunately, a lot of what doesn't work for me is the end.

One of the trademarks of Harlequin Desire is the promise of scandal and sensuality. Cat Schield delivers this so well in her latest release of Untamed Passion.

Oliver has always felt like he was never good enough, smart enough, successful enough, talented enough for the demanding father whose approval he craved. Sammie has let her mother run roughshod over her modelling career and her life. Will these two broken souls be the key to unlocking each other’s freedom from their pasts? I enjoyed this book and I really love how the overall story arc of the series is filling out. I liked seeing that the main focus of this story seems to be about growth and for ...more

Uncensored lust leads to consequences they never expected! With book six in the always sinful Dynasties: Seven Sins series Cat Schield delivers one of my favorites so far in the series when a footloose playboy meets his match and curtails his wild ways. The characters each had intriguing back stories and the passion they ignited was decadent. Looking forward to what the conclusion of this dramatic series has in store for us!

This may be my favorite book of this entire series!!

The writing is superb—well thought out, and beautifully executed.

The story was emotional and raw in a way very different from the others in the series, the culture it emulates within its characters...I loved it from start to finish.

Sammi is inspirational in her approach to life and it’s uncertainties...the growth and wisdom she exudes is something all people can and should strive for.

4 stars for the romance content
There is not much steamy passion but a sweet thoughtful romance between nice compatible people
I can see how Oliver fits into the family saga and interesting to learn more about the other family members
If you normally enjoy this series you will enjoy this as a sweet comfort read

This is Book 6 in the Dynasties: Seven Sins Series by this author. It is a sweet, heartfelt romance between photographer Oliver and model Sammi. These characters are flawed, the connection strong, the chemistry combustible, and the unique plot makes for an intriguing read. What starts out as a one night stand turns into something. more.

This was a great story. This is about Sammi and Oliver. Oliver is a photographer, and never measured up to his father's expectations, and Sammi is a model and has an overbearing mother who is involved in all aspects of her life. After a one night stand Sammie is pregnant and once Oliver finds out he does the right thing. There are buried anger and resentment on both parties part, and in the story they learn to trust and love. Great story.

Seven writers team up to write "Seven Sins". These stories are about a one man's betrayal and seven lives that were shaped by that scandal. This one is Oliver and Sammi’s story. This is an intriguing story that I could not put down. I love the characters and how their story develops. These two have one incredible night of passion that turns into a little surprise. The attraction between them is definitely not the problem but all the drama and family issues could be the end of them. This is a nic ...more

I won't say sweet per se but this was an enjoyable read, love the "connection and attraction" between Oliver and Sammi. He was afraid he will make his father's mistake, and she was worried about not being independent enough or not being able to accomplish that. They both had the wrong kind of foundations and working on each their side to make it work.
Lovely read and a quick read too.

There is a lot of drama, heat and sizzling chemistry between Oliver and Sami. Both are good looking and dramatic. This story is great and I enjoyed the passion in it. It does get slow at places so I skipped those places. I enjoyed the book. I am voluntarily leaving a review as I received an ARC from Booksprout.
