Readers of my blog know that I try not do directly interject my opinion into my reviews. " A Little Bit Sinful" is one of those rare incidences for which I must make an exception.
I fell in love with this series when I was presented wwith the opportunity to review "A Little Bit Wicked".
I was so impressed with that first offering that I emailed the authoress for a release date for ALBS; just after finishing that first read.
"A Little Bit Sinful" draws readers into it's pages with the inventive resourcefulness of Clarissa Kincaid. Clarissa is a woman who, while very competent in business matters, needs all the help that she can get when it comes to matters of the heart.
She seeks that help in the form of one "tarnished white knight", Justin Rodale. Justin has been her friend since childhood, and comes to want more. He is however, more than a little aware that his social standing as a child from the "wrong side of the sheets" puts him in a less than favorable social light.
Sometimes perception belies hidden fact...
It seems that the man that society says that Clarissa should be with has secrets and a heart darker than any could fathom.
Can the light of true love help two hearts navigate the shark infested waters of society to find true happiness?
This book is packed with romance, mystery, and so much sinful fun.
Clarissa is a little naive as far as the ways of the world, but something has to be said for the fact that she is not afraid to ask for help. Major kudos are also in order for Justin, her teacher, friend, dance partner, and so much more.
It is so nice to see that while he was busy saving Clarissa from the world; Clarissa is also saving him from himself.
This is a heartwarming testament to the fact that it is often the roughest diamonds that with a bit of care, shine the brightest.
