[Kame's Review]: "Sweet as Sin"

Sweet as Sin by J.T. Geissinger
Publisher: Montlake Romance (July 14, 2015)
Series: Bad Habit, 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Twentysomething Kat Reid is loving life as an in-demand Hollywood makeup artist. She has absolutely no interest in rock ’n’ roll, but in order to pay the mortgage, she agrees to work on the set of a rock video for the world-famous rockers known as Bad Habit…which brings her face-to-face with Nico Nyx, lead singer of Bad Habit and Adonis in the flesh.

However, the fiercely independent Kat isn’t impressed by the hard-living, womanizing rock star. But when Nico’s model girlfriend shows up to the set drunk and Kat is tapped to replace her as the video’s sexy bride, her combustible chemistry with Nico suddenly threatens to consume the set. Nico feels it, too—and becomes determined to win Kat over, body and soul. Yet behind his rock god swagger, Nico hides a dark secret. Can he rock Kat’s world forever, or will he just break her heart?

Kame's Review:

Kat is a makeup artist in LA and often meets interesting people on location. Her tenderness towards another catches Nico's heart.

I like Rocker books and alpha heroes. Nico is a little of both. Kat and Nico both have their fair share of baggage; and at times it was a little too much for me. There are tender moments too, my favorite being Nico's birthday present to Kat.  Their relationship seemed rather forced to me and I was not as convinced of their devotion to one another. Scenes were sexy but not what I would call steamy or romantic.

This book had some definite dark spots and not the easiest plot. The happy epilogue was just not enough for me to overcome all the darkness.  At the end of the book the author made note of some personal challenges she had while writing, and I can see where it influenced the book. Chloe and Grace were bright spots in this book for me and I will definitely look for future titles with them as the main character. I do have a hope for who Grace's love interest is.

3 1/2 STARS!
