Publisher's Summary

An epic tale of revenge and love in a new romantic trilogy from the New York Times best-selling author of The Beauty Series.

Bleu MacAllister is consumed. A horrific childhood incident has caused every decision in her life to revolve around bringing a monster to justice. With years spent studying The Fellowship, a Scottish organized crime brotherhood of liars, thieves, and killers, Bleu will rely on her skills as a special agent to cut Thane Breckenridge off at the knees. But walking hand in hand with retribution means risking collateral damage, in the form of Breckenridge's son Sinclair - until Sin becomes so much more than Bleu bargained for. She's always known this undertaking would place her life in danger - she never imagined her heart would be as well.

My kind of "Sin"

Any additional comments?

Suspense and passion all wound together for Bleu and Sin. Bleu, a strong heroine, is on a mission to avenger her mothers death but finds herself in the middle of the "fellowship", Scottish mob. Will Sin's love for Bleu be enough to keep these two together... Can he keep her safe now.... Can't wait to listen to the next book to see where the story takes me now.

Narration - It was ok but i had a very hard time when Antony tried to be the voice of Bleu. Had me irritated at first but i got over since the story was a good one.

Character voices weren't good

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Anthony's Scottish accent is good when he is playing Sinclair's character, but is awful when performing Blue's part. I almost stopped listening to it just because of his female character voice. I would definitely not allow him to a female voice again. Blue did not have a heavy southern accent but did when he read the part, it was just awful!

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The performance of the character's was read on the slow slide and it was annoying. It didn't flow a at good pace.

Could you see A Necessary Sin being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No

Eh...

This made me sad. I listened because the story idea was okay. Like other listeners have commented... the ending was rushed. The male narrator killed me every time he tried to emulate Blue's accent. He just... it was cringe worthy and took away from the story so much. As long as he wasn't doing that stupid accent his own Scottish one sounded fine.

Really I was just looking for good Mafia stories and was semi disappointed. The only reason this wasn't painful to read is I thought the author actually wrote well (despite the rushed ending) and kept the sex to a happy level. I probably would have enjoyed this a lot more without the male narrator though.

That accent

Mmmmmmm... that Scottish accent did more for me than the story and he story was phenomenal. I didn't think the reason bleu was there would be revealed so quickly but I am really excited about book 2.

A Necessary Sin Oh My!!

I read this book and loved it! I decided to buy audio to see if I still would love it and the audio version just made it 10 times better.. I hope all the books on this series will be on audio.

A SIN So Good

Revenge, suspense and passion heat up this first book in the series about Sin and Bleu. Inot the world of the Scottish fellowship finding love was both dangerous and unlikely but the author makes this story come to life with possibilities. By the end, there's so much still up in the air. But it's okay because you'll be ready to listen to the next story right away.

My one complaint is with the narration, particularly when Antony voiced Bleu. I wouldnt suggest him as a narrator for female characters. It was distracting, if not a bit bothersome.

Basically dull

What disappointed you about A Necessary Sin?

Mostly it is endless drudgery that has a beginning but goes nowhere. I gave up after 9 chapters

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Others' comments are accurate. Any performance can have flaws. The narrators could take the remarks and use them to improve.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None that I heard. Sorry. It had a great premise and a lot of high ratings, but...........
