VAULT OF SIN #3
AUGUST 7, 2017
Falling in love will be brutal.
Bryan is ruthless, heartless, and more than a little proud of his notorious reputation, until his bad attitude threatens to strip him of the one place he can’t live without. His sanctuary. The Vault. The exclusive club is the only place he feels at home, and he’ll do whatever it takes to reclaim what is his. Even if it means asking for help from the woman who landed him in trouble in the first place.
Pamela may have become weak-kneed over Bryan’s talented hands once before, but this self-empowered widow isn’t stupid enough to want more from the sanctimonious ass. Nope. At least that’s what she tells herself before he turns up at her café, offering to refresh her memory on his skilled fingers and filthy words in exchange for a favor.
He needs her to set things straight in the Vault. She needs him to satisfy the cravings of fulfillment she’s been missing. It’s a match made in hedonistic heaven, until hostility turns to lust, and lust into passion, capturing them both in an emotional web neither one of them want to be ensnared in.
Warning: This is an exhibitionist’s play-field and a voyeur’s delight, but dominance always rules. Throw in teasing, torture, and a gag or two, and you’ve got yourself another night of debauchery within the carnal walls of the Vault of Sin.
I loved Bryan's and Pamela/Ella's book. Like Shay we all knew Brute was due some love and a woman of his own. And don't worry if you haven't read either of the other two books from the Vault of Sin series - this can definitely be read as a stand alone.
Well I would never have guessed/predicted the plot, the reasons behind Bryan's 'Brute' personality, the woman who would break his rules OR why he had those rules. This didn't have the raw sexuality of Shot of Sin or the heartbreaking emotion of Union of Sin, this was much more about two people learning to trust in each other without even realising they are doing so. That said it still has steaming hot chemistry along with a myriad of emotions, but it also offers so much more within its pages too.
I'm struggling to say much about the book as I want to avoid any spoilers. Instead I will say that I read this in one go, ignoring the phone and my family in order to read it as quickly as possible. Even when Bryan is being totally Brute you still can't help but love him, and I really liked Pamela too. They are well written and believable, I loved the banter between them but also the banter between Bryan and Shay and the warm, loving relationship Pamela clearly has with her family.
The pace kept me gripped, the plot blew me away (there is nothing of the cliched romance book here!), the descriptions, the emotions, the writing are all amazing. I loved that we didn't get to much information about Bryan's past, we had enough to understand him without unnecessary detail that would have distracted from the here and now.
The only problem I have is that this is possibly that this may be the last Vault of Sin book and I would love more Shay, Leo, TJ, Cassie, Bryan and Pamela. And definitely would love more visits to the Vault!
