After Dark Review of Sinner by Jianne Carlo

I have added After Dark Reviews to my blog as a way of notifying you of a review of a book with Adult themes and scenes. From now on I will keep my reviews of all books I read that have explicit scenes in them for late night posts for those of you who prefer to avoid them or easy to find for those of you who seek them out ;)
Read for: Mount TBR Digital
Synopsis: "Navy SEAL Linc Chapman aka Sinner’s no choir boy. Deployed to fight an-out-of-control brush fire in Alaska Sinner’s the last to exit the plane, he veers off course, his chute fails, his reserve opens, and he’s knocked unconscious. Sinner awakens in a cabin to a woman with the face of a Madonna and the body of a stripper tending to him.

Destiny’s in Alaska, armed with whips, cuffs, and copies of “classic” (who knew?) porn movies, to “sex up” former bestselling author Nadine Roland’s latest manuscript. It’s make or break it time for Destiny, career wise. The last thing she needs is a car that won’t start, a fricking blizzard, and a SEAL named Sinner who thinks she’s into BDSM because of her ‘toys’.

Sinner doesn’t believe Destiny’s an editor, not for a second. He knows they’re trapped in the cabin for at least two days. When the lights go out, Sinner knows exactly how he’s going to stay warm."

My Review: I have enjoyed Jianne's books in the past so I figured why not give this series a try. I did enjoy this book for the most part. Just the idea of Linc's deep voice gives me chills. Destiny/Sara on the other hand was just too dense to stand, how a character can be set up as intelligent yet still be dumb as a rock is beyond me. The story was also a little choppy, scenes would skip around (ie. the characters are situated in a way but suddenly they are positioned differently with no indication of the change), it just didn't have the flow I would prefer, it took me out of the story quite a bit as I would have to re-read a few paragraphs to make sure I didn't skip something. It was still a good, quick, steamy read to enjoy and I will certainly be looking for the rest of the Hades Squad series.
My Rating: I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as I enjoyed Carlo's Viking series and Destiny was definitely irritating but Linc made up for it.  It was definitely a good book for what I was looking for thought.  I give it a rating of Three Paws.
