Title: Sinful Intent

Series: ALFA PI Book #1
Release Date: July 14th
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.

“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.

My Review

Right out of the box, I’ll tell you I liked the storyline and characters.  It was fantastic getting to delve back into the lives of the Gallo family, and while Morgan DeLuca is a cousin, he gives the reader exactly what we’ve come to expect from the Gallo men.  Hot alpha male-strong, protective and dedicated.  The interactions between him and his mother are fantastic (gotta love those strong, slightly-overbearing-at-times mothers, right?), and he fits in perfectly with his cousins…which for those of us readers who have been following the author’s Men of Inked series is a treat since we’re getting more of what we already love.

Race True, the female lead, does come across as a bit bitchy.  Yes, I get that she’s been clawing her way through a tough corporate world and has her own issues, but sometimes her attitude just nagged at me.  But she does show a great deal of strength, especially when all the suspense comes to a head towards the end of the book.  

The story itself is a good, solid romantic suspense…the only thing that made me grumble was how fast not only the story went, but also how quickly things progressed between Morgan and Race.  For me, it just was too fast, though given the length of the story it does fit the timeline of the story.

Sinful Intent is a great start to the ALFA PI series, and I really am looking forward to more alpha male goodness and suspense—and if Morgan is any indication, I think we’re all in for a thrilling ride!  4 stars for Sinful Intent, recommended for 18+ for language and adult sexual scenes.
