This book should have been called Utter Crap, not Ultimate Sins, as it was...utter crap. I am hoping that I got the pre-editor version. I hope, because if this has been through editing, the author got cheated and fans will be cheated.
I am so glad that I got an ARC, and that I now know not to buy it, as clearly, the author's lost the plot with this - either that, or she couldn't be bothered plotting at all. The tale jumped from one thing to another, seemingly without reason, just adding bits and pieces to the tale, randomly. It starts off with Crowe, the last single Callahan, getting info from teenage Amelia, who's betraying her father, the evil Wayne-the-Slasher, and getting down and dirty with her. He supposedly leaves her for her own good, so the tale immediately skips two years, and a few pages later, it skips another 5 years, I think, because Crowe's been finishing off his (military?) service and is now back in town to see to the evil that has haunted the Callahan family.
Of course, in LL land, the only way to flush WtS out, is for Crowe to sleep with Amelia, making her one of his women, and therefore a target. Amelia is happy to go along, but after the first time she and Crowe are together, she realises that she doesn't want to be used, but it's a case of the lady doth protest too much and before you know it, they're at it time and time again, with pretty much one scene morphing into the other, with just a tiny pause and bit of dialogue to separate them. There were so many instances of them going at it, that I found myself skipping the seen-that, read-that-before scenes; they never really varied and were pretty boring.Read more ›
I have not read the previous books in the series. Some readers suggest you can understand this book reading it as a standalone but from my experience I think reading the others first may help (I may be completely wrong and this book may still make little sense at times!). The first few chapters jump between periods of time, it's clearly marked, Amelia at 18 or 5 years later but my problem is when the next time period started there wasn't adequate information on what happened since the last section. The story continued mentioning events that occurred but not giving enough details for us to know the importance and new characters are mentioned who we don't know the significance of.
Crowe was a Grade A arse. My kindle copy is noted throughout with single words, arse, twat, dick, dipwad. He annoyed me over and over again. He uses sex as a weapon, it's a power trip for him. No matter how much they argue he solves it by telling her he knows her panties will be wet and proves his point to her. She's an intelligent woman who secretly gathers evidence and helps those victimised by Wayne yet she is weak and feeble minded with Crowe, gives up the fight and has sex with him. The 2 sides to her character don't tie up, she would have resisted, argued, not just laid back and given in. He tells her over and over that he's using her as bait, that he suspects she knew about Wayne, that it's just lust between them, he goes out of his way to make her feel crap and then wonders why she doesn't understand he's trying to protect her.Read more ›
Told from several close personal third person points of view including memories and present day premise, the storyline covers approximately seven years-seven long years that saw Crowe Callahan walk away from the only woman he ever loved leaving her unprotected from a violent and psychotic man who is determined to destroy an entire town. While Crowe was sent away on assignment with the special ops forces, Amelia was left behind to endure humiliation, abuse and torture but what Crowe never realized is that Amelia did everything to protect the people that she loved. The timeline skips ahead a number of times and what happens during those seven years is important and imparted to the reader when and where necessary.
Crowe is a hardened ex-marine whose personality was less than welcoming. As a controlling, over protective male Crowe is the epitome of alpha marine and a man who would do anything-including murder- to protect the woman that he loves.
Amelia is a woman whose life has been shattered by one man-a man so close that betrayal is considered tame for the sins he has committed against the people of the small town she loves.Read more ›
