When Olivia attended her parent’s anniversary party she had no idea how much her life would change.
After an unexpected meeting with a gorgeous, yet dangerous stranger, her usually quiet, dull life is flipped upside down as she suddenly finds herself pulled into a world she never thought possible.
It’s a race against time to save herself and those she loves.
The question is, will she be strong enough for the fight ahead?
And can an ordinary girl handle the extraordinary life she has now become a part of, or will it spell the end for her?
My thoughts: Built to Sin is the debut paranormal romance by Natalie Haigh. If you like possessive alpha-males who are SUPER hot and amazing in bed then this book is definitely for you.
Personally, I’m not a fan of overly possessive alpha-males, possibly because I’ve been in a controlling relationship before, so I did find it difficult to get into this book at first. However, I persevered and it got easier for me to read and enjoy.
The overline storyline was great and had a lot going on to keep the reader entertained. It’s obvious that the author has done a lot of research into certain aspects such as Greek gods etc which shows the authors passion and care for her work.
There are a lot of sex scenes in the book and though I do enjoy them there was one or two were I thought ‘this isn’t the time for sex’, and that’s coming from me who’s pretty much like a cat on heat! They go into great detail though and I could feel myself blushing while I read this in the canteen at work. I had to make sure my manager wasn’t reading it over my shoulder!
Luke, the sexy, possessive demon is a character I wanted to love but really struggled to. I think in my opinion, he’s just to possessive, bordering on stalker. He’s also super arrogant and bossy but again, a lot of chicks dig that so hats off to the author for being able to create a guy like this and continue it through the book.
The villains in this book are created well as I hated them rather quickly. I also think they were described fantastically by the author, allowing my mind to create them fully.
The book needs a good edit but I never think a book should be judged by this as it’s the story that the author has produced that is the most important thing when reading.
Overall, it’s a good debut novel and I will continue to read the series.
Have you guys read this one?
