Author: Chelle Bliss
The moment I saw her, I wanted her. I tried to resist her, but Race had other plans. One night, in a moment of weakness, I gave in to my desires. I still had a job to do before her world collapsed. If I failed at finding the person behind the threats, I could lose her forever. Temptation can be dangerous.
Excerpt“You’re really purdy,” she slurred with a lopsided grin, running her finger down my cheek. “That’s it. No more drinks for you,” I said, dragging the glass away from her. “No! I’ve only had three,” she said as she lurched forward, pulling the drink out of my hands. “I’m enjoying myself. I’ve had a bitch of a week and I deserve to let loose a little.” I held my hands up. “You’ve actually had four martinis, but anything you want, princess.” Her eyes grew into little slits. “I’m not your princess,” she slurred, sounding completely adorable. My cheeks hurt as I smiled. “I’m going to take you home now. I think you need to sleep it off.” “Last time I checked,” she said before hiccupping, “you’re not my daddy.” A slow smile crept across her face. She scooted closer and whispered, “Unless that’s your thing.” She tried to wink, but both eyes closed, one after the other. I leaned into her space, a breath away from her lips. “It’s not my thing, but I’m happy to act out your fantasies. But I don’t think you want to cross that line. Once you go there, there’s no going back.” I stared into her eyes. “Oooh.” Her eyes grew wide. “Is that supposed to scare me, Mr. DeLuca?” I didn’t move. “I’m just giving you fair warning. You’ve had a few drinks, and I won’t take advantage of that. I’m just telling you how it is.” “You’re full of yourself.” Her warm, sweet breath caressed my lips as she spoke. All I wanted to do was reach out, pull her face to mine, and kiss her full, beautiful lips. “I’m sure of myself and confident in my abilities, yes. That’s entirely different than being full of myself.” I licked my lips, testing her. Her eyes dropped to my mouth as her lips parted. “Another?” Lisa interrupted. “We’re good,” I replied, keeping my eyes pinned to Race and waving Lisa off. “Pfft,” Lisa scoffed, stomping away. Race glared in Lisa’s direction. “She wants you,” she whispered. Was she jealous? “I don’t want her.” “She’s a sure thing though.” I leaned closer, leaving very little space between us. “I never liked easy.” “All men like easy.” Her body swayed, moving so close our lips almost brushed.
Sinful Intent is the first book in Chelle Bliss' new series ALPHA and admittedly it took me a bit to warm up to it mainly because going in I had preconceived notions on how it would be. I think I was expecting it to be a lot like her previous series Men of Inked, but this has a voice all it's own even though it has a lot of the same characters. Once I got my head on straight and where it needed to be, in Morgan's head, I loved it. He is so different and brash and tough. He didn't treat his Ma like she would kick his ass for being late or talking bad about her cooking. He loved and respected her that was very apparent. The shift of being alone with only his mother to being suddenly surrounded by his family, the Gallos, is a nice thing to witness. I could see the slow changes in him.
I did enjoy seeing the Gallos from someone else's perspective. Morgan and his Mother hadn't seen them in 10 years and suddenly they are surrounded by them again for Izzy's wedding. They are just as noisy and loving as I remember them. But from Morgan's view they are overwhelming and yet he truly needs it and wants it. His need for his family is strong now that he is surrounded by them again. Some great descriptive writing and Chelle Bliss knows how to draw out emotions.
When he was asked to join his cousin's PI firm he was ready for a change. He didn't know how much of change he would be in for. His first case is for an uptight straight laced woman named Race True who is being stalked. Their first meeting they are both fiercely attracted to each other. The heat smolders of the pages it was so hot. Morgan is determined to finish this case and get Race out of his system, but one night was all it took for him to become hooked. Race goes from uptight to vixen in a matter of hours. Sex with Morgan was a religious experience and I can tell you Chelle Bliss can write some seriously HOT scenes! I was shocked my Kindle didn't set itself on fire.
The book has a twist I didn't see coming. I loved it! The ending was the best. Office initiation is one I think they are going to enjoy! A couple of guys from Men of Inked we loved will be brought in to ALPHA PI. There is no telling how far she can go with this series. This was a great first book. One I highly recommend for suspense, romance and erotica lovers.
