** 2.5 stars **
I don't even remember from where I get this one?? Why I added it in my TBR?
The writing in average.
Way tooo fast pace, somewhere the twists just came and went away I didn't have time to consume everything. So an average writing style

The characters were amateurs with feelings yet so dark. I liked their passion but apart from it nothing else enticed me much.

"Deviant Sin" is the first book of the "Cruel Desires" by the author Lee Piper. Told in dual perspectives , this book ends on a Cliffhanger. Get ready to meet Temple and Sinclair.

Temple has to be one of most badass heroines which alone made me lover her so much. She never wanted anything to do with Sinclair no matter how much she was attracted to him. She thought it was just attraction , and it would go away soon. But things changed when Si

This book moved at the speed of light. From strangers to almost enemies to sleeping together to falling in love. I don’t think I caught my breath between any of the transitions.
I enjoyed the story. The plot was a little different than what I’ve come across before, and left open ended in a sense for the next book to pick up.
My biggest concern in the entire thing was just the way it felt like time moved. The beginning essentially burned through 2 whole nights. The end happened in another night o

This is the first book in a new dark, twisty and super steamy college series by Lee Piper. This is also a new to me author and when I read the blurb I jumped on the chance to read it. I love the whole dark and dangerous bully vibe. Tons of suspense, secrets and super, and I mean SUPER, hot sex scenes all throughout this book. This book is extremely fast paced and I admit at times I was very lost. Some cha

Okay, let me tell you, this is not your typical Lee Piper book. Deviant Sin is a lot more darker than all of the authors other books. What we have is a enemies-to-lovers/college/mafia story with a dominant alpha hero and a heroine who's as much as alpha as the hero 😉.

Sinclair "Sin" Brandt - the name is program. This man is pure sin in every way. Dominant, dirty, sexy (all the best sins all rolled into one person) but also determined to fulfill his goals, to avenge his mother's death. And you al

Sin Brandt is the man you absolutely don't wanna know when you have big dreams for your future. And that's exactly what Temple do. She done everything she can to avoid him and his little gang. But why is her rejection and avoidance seems only excited Sin more? It's more than lust, Temple smart enough to know since that man is a walking talking sexy God. So what is his scheme? Alas, her

Lee Piper held me spellbound with this page turning read! I couldn’t put my kindle down.

Sin and Temple were made for each other and the pages came to life with their undeniable chemistry, banter and intense emotions. I loved the way Temple’s feisty nature kept Sin transfixed and drawn to her despite his dominant nature. She challenged him and kept him captivated by her. Temple was also drawn to Sin and knew when to acquiesce despite her resilient nature. They were meant for each other! The dang

Deviant Sin, the latest novel by Lee Piper is darker enemies to lovers romance that is full of everything that you come to love from her writing! Her characters are troubled individuals that hold nothing back. They have this strength about them that just proves that nothing will hold them down for long.
Sin and Temple are just the ultimate duo because they feed off each other's energy - melting the pages with their undeniable chemistry. Can't wait to read more from this series! A DEFINITE must r

Absolute must read first book in new series!

Holy, holy, holy, hell, I didn’t know it was possible but I believe that Lee Piper has absolutely out done herself yet again. Yeah, I probably say this with each book release, but I swear to you that this time it’s true! She’s stayed with the bad boy hero but has moved away from her rockers and started a new series with a pair of twins out to take down their father, his organisation, and anyone involved in it. Dirty rats better move out of the way, or

The moment they meet Temple wants nothing to do with Sin, she knows the family he comes from and what they represent, and that is a trouble she does not need. She is busy enough by struggling to keep her fathers auto shop afloat so she can save enough money for school, so a relationship of any kind is pretty much out of the question. Involving herself with Sin would definitely derail all of her plans and leave her with a hollow heart.

Little does she know Sin has a plan, that involves her, and he

Deviant Sin is my first book by Lee Piper and I truly enjoyed it! I love a strong heroine, and that's who our female character Temple is. After her abusive father went to jail, she's been working at the family garage making ends meet so that she can pay for her tuition in college. Temple only has herself to depend on, without a mother and siblings to support her. She's had to develop a tough skin in order to make sure she graduates and gets out of her corrupted hometown. When she meets Sin Brand ...more

Lee Piper did it, but this time, she did it BIG!!! No doubt about it.

I was enchanted from the moment I started reading this book and I think I won't be able to recover any time soon.

"I want to know everything about my firecracker: the good, the bad, the f%*cking violent. Every secret she's trying to hide , I'll uncover. Even if it kills us both"

Sinclair Brandt aka Sin (because, YES, he is sinful like that lol) might be young but had to learn, in the worst way, how to grow up faster than anyo

Deviant Sin by Lee Piper takes a different path than her other reads. This romance is instant, dark, dangerous, and addictive. It is also sensitive to certain themes.

The chemistry and desire between Sin and Temple were instant. There was a little build-up and then wham! Fire! Their relationship builds throughout, but not without its issues. I loved them together. With Temple's no-nonsense attitude, and Sin's devilish charm, they bounced from each other and I could not get enough of it.

I really LOVE me some Lee Piper, so I'm all in whenever she releases a new story. Sin is determined to bring down his father, and he's equally determined to use Temple to do so, which is just rude. However, he didn't count on Temple being the spitfire she was, how she would go toe to toe with him, and his reaction to her & their chemistry. Now it's time to buckle up for the wild ride because this heroine isn't any sort of wilting flower victim so maybe just maybe, Sin bit off more than he can ch ...more

Sin and Temple ... what a couple, gaaah!
I’m at a loss for words ... again!
Sin’s name is program ... sexy as sin, a dominant alpha, who makes the pages of this book sizzle and threatens to burn the e-reader to ashes.
And he found his counterpart in Temple, an almost reclusive girl, scarred from her childhood with a criminal father and wise beyond her years, resilient and tough as nails, who refuses to bend and submit to his demands and who won't put up with his sh!t.
Their banter is highly amusing

Thrilling and suspenseful enemies to lovers story!

WOW! What a story! I was literally on the edge of my seat, biting my nails, not knowing what new twist is going to pop out at us on the next page. The story is fast paced, dark, angry and very steamy at times.

Temple is utterly FIERCE! She is a fighter, a survivor and one hell of a kickass woman. I absolutely love her and her ability to not give a crap and keep going. But she is also very smart and has an uncanny ability to see things others can’

Deviant Sin is book one of Cruel Desires series by Lee Piper. Here we meet Sin, the reluctant heir to a mafia empire who is hell bent on his father's destruction and Temple, the sassy mechanic and an unwitting pawn in Sin's scheme to take down his father. What worked really well for me was the hot push and pull relationship between these two. While Sin is just the kind of dominant alpha-hole anti-hero I love, Temple really makes this work for me with her take no prisoners attitude. I also really ...more

This is the 1st in a new series and is Sin and Temple journey. Sin is a powerful, confident and cocky alpha, while Temple is strong and a fighter, which is understandable from her tough past, and she is no push over as she challenges Sin at every turn, and certainly knows which buttons to push. This is a well written fast paced story which is raw, gritty, dark, intense, and is a steamy enemies / lovers’ romance story. I cannot wait for the 2nd book in this addictive and riveting series.

Deviant Sin is a HOTT mafia romance that has you feeling the heat with each page. Temple and Sin are FIRE!! Temple just wants to get through school and not be on anyone's radar. Well Sin blew that out of the water after he knew she was the one. This book is full of suspense, angst and so much sexual chemistry. I can't wait fore more in this series. ...more

This dark-ish mafia romance moved so fast! I couldn't stop turning pages. Temple and Sin are combustible and watching the tension between them morph from hate to lust to love was a fun ride!

Sin has some extra groveling to do if it were up to me, but he and Temple are a fantastic fated pair. Steamy, enjoyable and quick read! Can't wait for the next.

Lee Piper knocked this one out of the park. Mafia is not my normal preferred read, but if Lee writes it, I always give it a chance. She certainly didn't disappoint. These characters were complex and flawed and made me feel so much. The plot kept me turning the pages from the very first word. The push and pull between these characters kept my heart pounding and wanting more. I enjoyed the cameos. I was not ready to leave these two. But that's always the sign of a book well-written. ...more
