Brody "Brutus" Jackson is immediately attracted to Xan when her hot little body walks into the shop where he works as a mechanic in an official capacity, and as a mercenary unofficially. He knows instantly she's off-limits. He doesn't do single moms-too much baggage-but more importantly, he knows her from somewhere...a dangerous sign since he only remembers the last twelve years of his life, and what he's learned of his past needs to stay buried.
He fights his overwhelming desire, but when he discovers his assignment is her protection, he realizes how easily one hot little momma can bring him to his knees...and how difficult facing who he was can be.

This was a action packed read from start to finish and I LOVED it. From the first page we see that Alexandria Collins (Xan) is trying to leave her husband and end up being compromised with not enough time to get out when her husband arrives and tries to kill her. She ends up going into Witness Protection, where they move her to a small town which she is on her way to when her car breaks down. She meets the scrumptious Brody Jackson (Brutus) when she goes to the mechanic shop to get her car towed. Brody doesn't remember the earlier years of his life but knows that there is something about this woman that he knows so he tries to keep his distance. Unfortunately that's not happening because along with being a mechanic he and the guys are also mercenaries unofficially and get tasked with watching out for her.
Their's so many twist and turns in this book that leaves you breathless and wondering what's going to happen next. The intense chemistry that these two share is EXPLOSIVE and ALL-CONSUMING from just a look. The plot was SUPERB and the characters were EXCEPTIONAL. This was an all round great romance. Mandy didn't miss a beat and gave readers exactly what they should expect when reading...a solid, scorching romance, with a suspense factor that will keep you on your toes. I'm definitely intrigued with this series, and I'm excited to see what direction the next book take with Hunter's story.

Posted on Romancing the Books blog/ Reviewed by Ursula/ Review Copy from the Publisher/ Xan has had a rough 12 years…She doesn’t know who to trust, and after being beaten for years by her ex-husband, doesn’t trust men.
Xan and her son, Scott, have been under witness protection for years, but things are really starting to get dangerous as her ex is up for parole…and she’s finally decided to trust a man again.
Mandy Harbin does a wonderful job of letting you see how isolated Xan and Scott have become, but how their relationship has not only survived, but has become strong.
The resistance to the mutual attraction between Xan and Brody is just the right amount of titillation to get the reader primed for the inevitable! And oh boy, is the wait well worth it! The chemistry and animal magnetism is sheet scorching and yet, sweet! Yes, sweet! Every woman wants a man like Brody; at least, the Brody that Xan thinks she knows.
The story is hot, humorous, suspenseful and very well written. There are several different characters, but you get a chance to know and like, or dislike in some cases, each one of them. Yet, they aren’t too many to dilute the real story.
I enjoyed readying Darkest Sin. The only thing I didn’t care for was the excessive foul language in some scenes. It wasn’t throughout the story, so it was a temporary annoyance a time or two, but not so much that it made me want to put the book down!

I love anything by Mandy Harbin, so when her first full-length Erotic
Romance, Darkest Sin, released...I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.
And Mandy delivered us the goods again. Darkest Sin starts with a bang,
literally, and doesn't stop. Great story and characters I fell in love
with - I can't wait for the next one!!
