Publisher's Summary

In this intriguing mystery, Jeffrey Sinclair has a thief in his midst. One of his highly sensitive prototypes has gone missing, and he's on a timeline to recover it to avoid bankruptcy. In his search he finds himself in the middle of a deadly game where trust is a luxury he can't afford. The last person to have the devices has been killed and now his only link to the stolen property is the man's widow.

Avery Montgomery is a woman heroes marry and protect for life, and Sin's never been the protecting, hero type - not like her dead husband. When her life is put in danger, Jeffrey strives to keep her safe, while following the twists and turns to uncover the truth before it's too late. Unfortunately, time spent with Avery makes him yearn for the impossible... to be her hero.

a little bit of a slow start...

this book is well written and well performed, but it did have a slow start. I found my mind drifting often so I had to rewind to get get back on track and that usually doesn't happen with me. But, overall, a good story.

Intriguing romantic suspense!

--I was given this audiobook in return for an honest review.

WOW..so many plot twists and whodunnits! I loved this book...from start to finish, the character development made me feel like I knew each character. From Avery to Scottie, this book kept my attention. I especially loved the romance between Sin and Avery..it sizzled from the very start. I also enjoyed the tension between Des and Terri and look forward to their story. I was totally engrossed in the story, at each turn I kept changing my mind of who was the theif, and where were those prototypes? Who is following Avery, what is the Colonel doing, and who is Esperanza really?

Carol Dines delivers a flawless performance, her voice is perfect with each character change.

If you love suspense and romance, this one is for you. Highly recommend it.

Suspence, Romance and Strong Characters!

Would you listen to The Sin Factor again? Why?

Absolutely. The suspence grabs you from the first page and keeps going until the end. The narrator really builds each character and brings them to life.

What other book might you compare The Sin Factor to and why?

I am a big fan of the Kellermans, Faye and Jonathan. Sandy Loyd is also great at building her characters so you want to know them. I can't wait for the next book in the series!

Which scene was your favorite?

After the break in at Avery's house, when Sin lets down his guard and you see how strong his feelings for her have become.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Avery realizes it was not her fault that Mike died.

Any additional comments?

Great read! Love the author. Love the narrator. Thanks Audible!

"whodunit"

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes, I would suggest tightening up the book by editing. There were a few (not a lot) of areas when I found my thoughts drifting.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

See above<br/><br/>

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Carol Dines Is a good performer. I chose to speed up to 1.5x, I do not think that I would have continued listening if I were not able to speed up. It is just personal preference.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

I cannot imagine it being made into a movie, there is just too much material to edit/cut into a 1 to 2 hour movie.

Any additional comments?

There are some graphic intimate scenes that appear over halfway through the book. Those who prefer traditional "innocent" romances may be put off by these scenes. On the other hand, those who prefer more spice may think that these scenes to not go far enough.<br/><br/><br/>Note: I received this book in exchange for my review – good, bad or meh. I have written all three kinds. It is my hope that you will explore my reviews, which are in almost every genre, and mark any that you find "helpful" as such. Thank you for taking the time to do this. Please consider following me on audible.<br/><br/>As a potential reader/listener I hope that you have found my review helpful. If so, which you take a moment and select yes directly below? Thank you

The Hero Factor

Wow! I really enjoyed this romantic suspense. It started with a bang, and it was full of twists and turns that kept me guessing. Sin was such an awesome hero, heroic but human with his own doubts and weaknesses. I loved the question of what makes a hero and who was really the hero in Avery's life - Sin or Avery's deceased husband. The characters were pretty realistic. I loved the secondary characters, especially Des and Scotty, and look forward to revisiting them in future books.

I thought Carol Dines did a good job of changing her voice for all the different roles, which helped me identify who was speaking. I especially liked the voice she used for Des.

Great Listen

This action-packed romance mystery that held my attention until the very end. The characters were developed and key to the storyline.

It also gives you an insight into friendship and how things can appear. It was definitely a pageturner and worth the listen.

Three Men and a Lady Solve a Mystery

What did you love best about The Sin Factor?

I loved the overall story of a lonely widow falling in love with a mysterious stranger. She finds out that not all men are alike and that she can truly be "in charge" in the bedroom.

What did you like best about this story?

This was a really interesting mystery that kept me trying to figure it all out while totally enjoying the interactions of all of the characters.

Have you listened to any of Carol Dines’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first time I have listened to Carol. She is awesome to listen to and kept me on the edge of my seat when needed and totally involved with each character.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The hero "Sin" has a very sad background and when he was telling Avery about it he shed some tears. He was so real to me.<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>

Any additional comments?

I am looking forward to hearing more books from this author and this narrator.

Duties, Love or to Compromise

The Sin Factor is an espionage romantic suspense story. Jeffrey Sinclair (Sin) and his two partners are trying to find their prototypes that their company was working on before the prototypes were stolen. The only intel that they have received was that the widow Avery Montgomery is the key to finding their prototypes.

Avery was living with the guilt of sending her husband to his death during a military operation. When someone shot at both Avery and Sin, Sin took it upon himself to protect Avery. Avery didn't believed that she was the one that the shooter wanted but when someone broke into her house, she couldn't decide who she could trust. She didn't know Sin and she couldn't trust the General.

Both Avery and Sin have their own relationship issues to work out. Avery realized that her deceased husband has never loved her and that she was more of hostess than wife to him. Sin has been burned in a marriage of being betrayed by his ex-wife. Sin is more reserved about entering into another relationship when he still have trust issues with the opposite sex. Their attraction to each other is undeniable.

This book has so many twists and turns and characters with unscrupulous backgrounds. The story will lead readers/listeners trying to figure out who is the spy and who does have the prototypes.

The narrator, Carol Dines, does a fine job in narrating the story and providing the voices for the characters in the story. I am looking forward to Avery's sister and Sin's friend/business partner who is an ex-policeman's story and to Carol Dines in narrating their story.
