Overview

Sin (The Sin Duet, #2) by M. Malone, Nana Malone

I'm a bodyguard. I walk softly and carry a big...stick. 

Too bad I have no idea how to use it. 


I know what you're thinking. How the hell do you end up a virgin when you live in a city known for easy access? 
But my focus is protecting the women of New York...not fulfilling my every desire.

Then I meet her.

This story was very exciting and full of passionate people. But the mission behind mission was so intriguing and suspenseful. Awesome story.

How do you get better when you gave a fall in love performance . . . ? If there was ever a book from these two ladies that need to have it on audio. . .I could here Matthias's voice in my head with every line he spoke. I could feel if vibrate through my mind and cause some serious tingles. . . Okay, with that said I was so in love with Matthais. I enjoyed him in the previous series. I start to fall over the cliff with Before Sin and this one sealed the deal. Matthias was just the sweetest tough guy. He was well aware of his strengths. He also knew that there were some weaknesses that were some what covered by he sexy appeal. I am no fan of virgins, since they seem to popup in almost every few books, but this time around there was something charmingly deadly and sweet with this couple. Gemma and Matthias had a bit more in common than the sexual status/experience. They both were in a very deadly game that could cost someone or someones their lives. The few times I was distracted from my read, children do that, I would go back a whole chapter just so I know that what I remember was actually what had happened. This one was exciting, intense, seductive, elusive, alluring, and then some.

OMG. What a story! I'm new to the Blake Security boys but what a way to start the introduction. Mathias (Matt) is a monster ready to release his rage, and nearly does when he's attacked in his penthouse. When he realizes that his attacker is a woman, and then later discovers exactly who that woman is -- wow! This was suspenseful and HOT! I'm ready to run and pick up the previous books in this series just so I can get more of these Blake boys!

Who doesn't love a Sweet Assassin??? Being a fan of M. Malone and Nana Malone, I have been anxiously waiting for Matthias to have his book! He always appeared to be secretive and full of a story to tell and this was definitely more than I expected. Being around the Alpha Males of Blake Security surely makes him "different" by still being a virgin. The Malones brought out his demons and brought in Gemma who is a familar face to the past that no one knows about Matthias. Matthias' life unfolds within the pages of his story and we learn more and more about the recluse that many have learned to fear! While I wasn't sure how the virgin storyline would work, Matthias was the only character in this series that makes it truly believable and it makes you fall in love him. Blake Security men continue to make you love them. They are broken heroes. The women who are able to heal them have a few broken pieces of their own! I can't wait to finish off the story of these two. It is definitely another perfect story for the men of Blake Security.

OMG!! This kid is full of surprises. Matthias has always tried to keep the beast at bay, but the love of his childhood will make all his defenses shatter. Matthias is a computer whiz, exeptionally well trained agent, and has a dark and secret past that is a mystery to everyone, including his new family of Blake Security. Gemma is a blast from the past that will bring love and hope back into Matthias life, but also great pain and betrayal. Matthias is going to show how lethal he can be against the people he love the must and that he would protect with his life. Sin is filled with surprising discoveries about Matthias and his past, lots of passion, love, and astonishing twist that will change the lives and stories of the guys from Blake Security for ever. Malone squared are just amazing and can't wait to see how Matthias' story will continue after that incredible, unbelievable, heart stopping cliffhanger finale of SIn. There is no doubt that you would want to read Sinful right away.

I really enjoyed Matthias and Gemma’s story. It was intense, action packed, steamy and kind of sweet. I liked both Matthias and Gemma’s characters. Gemma and Matthias are very formidable individuals but they also have good hearts, even if they themselves don’t know it. The ending shocked me. I definitely didn’t see that coming. I can’t hardly wait to find out what happens next in their story. (4.5⭐️)

I don't normally read stories with this type of plot. But I was completely sucked in and enjoyed the story. I'm really looking forward to the next installment. Matthias is a fascinating character. His past has shaped him into a unique young man. His past is coming after him on a couple fronts and it makes for a great story. This book has made me want to go back to and read about the other characters. I truly recommend. I received an advance copy in return for an honest review.

Holy Computers, Batman, this book has mystery, intrigue, humor, hot sex, heart stopping action...and a cliffhanger! Sin starts to unravel the background story of the youngest member of Blake Security, Matthias Weller. Through flashbacks, we learn he grew up in the mysterious "Family" where danger lurked around every corner for both children and adults. One of his only childhood friends was Gigi, who he believed died right in front of him. Because this story is told from a dual POV, we know that our heroine, Gemma, is actually Gigi, who also believed her friend, Matt, was killed by the Family. Both Matthias and Gemma are both ORUS trained agents, but as agents, they only go by codenames. Matthias and Gemma are still fairly young, though mature beyond their age due to the way they grew up and the organization that trained them to be killer agents. I had a lot of "giggle out loud" moments when Matthias got drunk and started to reveal his scared "attempt" at having sex for the first time to Oskar and Rafe. When Matthias realizes his past lives are colliding in front of his eyes, the monster (we don't fully understand yet) inside of him unleashes leaving us with a big cliffhanger. Can't wait to see what happens in the next book because chaos was reigning at the end of this one!

How dare they? Malone squared has left me hanging, with my mouth gaping wide open and no hope of fixing the problem until the next book is out. If you don't like to read cliffhangers, grab this book and hold on to it until after the next one comes out then binge read all of them. This is a must read. The kid finally got his book and it is the best one yet.

Another 4 1/2-star for M. Malone and Nana Malone. These ladies and their ability to craft such original, suspenseful and action-packed stories that are also romantic and contained some of the wittiest dialogue astonishes me every time I open up one of their books. I was so happy to be back in the world of Blake Security and to finally be reading Matthias' story. Matthias is the quiet and secretive hacker extraordinaire for Blake Security, but he also has a very dark side to him, which he tries to keep under control...just barely. However, events from Matthais' past are starting to converge and conspire against him to affect his present, and these events take us on the riveting ride that is Sin. Sin is Matthias' story, and in it we are given even more information and background on what happened during his time in the Family as a young boy, and what happened to him after he attempted to change his fate with the Family. We also learn how Matthias came to be apart of ORUS, as well as more details as to how he was able to leave it. Sin also introduces us to Gemma, who is one bad-behind chick, and who may hold secrets to Matthias' past, that could put him in danger. Sin is one heckva ride. Wow. I could not put the book down once I started reading it. It is a fun, thrilling and exciting page-turner of a read. Yeah, all of the Blake Security guys are back, so, you know that you are definitely in for one action-packed, wild and funny read. And OMG...the cliffhanger ending to this one...I NEED SINFUL RIGHT NOW!!!

These authors are fairly new to me, as I've only read one Nana Malone series (Royals Undercover) and I absolutely loved it. This one I loved just as much. It took me a minute to realize that those two series are actually slightly interconnected, (there's mention of the Security team in those books). Of course, then I had to do a little stalking and I found that there are more books/series for the other guys of Blake Security! Umm... heck yea!! I'm definitely getting those books!! So this one, I was like...hmm... guy virgin bodyguard? How is that even possible? Once I start reading though, I'm immediately hooked and like ohhhh okay. Matthias has seen things and done things that not many people have, so his reactions towards certain things, if you knew how he grew up, totally understandable. I love that when he sees Gemma, there's this insta-connect between them and that you start to see past his stoic facade. Then we learn Gemma's story and we're like....eeek! Gemma is in a bit of a jam. She's kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place. I was rooting for her to just bite the bullet and tell Matthias what was going on. Because, secrets... you know nothing good comes from them and eventually they turn around to come bite you in the you know what! And whatdayaknow? Gemma's you know what get's bit good and hard leaving me shocked! This story had it all...even the wow didn't see that coming cliffhanger! I was pretty shocked at the way it ended. Definitely a bit of cray cray action going on. Before that mess, I was laughing out loud at the guys, numerous times, especially when they find out about Matthias. It's pretty comical. I'm ready for Oskar's story, he most definitely needs a woman to knock him on his rump. But, first I need the rest of Gemma and Matthias' story! Stat ladies!! Loving these characters and will definitely be snatching up the other books about them while I wait for Sinful! #B2BKristina

I don’t know what to say. I have been wanting to get some information about Matthias but now that I have it, I am almost regretting that craving. Matthias has went through some serious crazy stuff and he is hanging on the edge. This book is well written and keeps you enthralled until the very end and anxiously waiting for book 2, Sinful. His past has come back to haunt him in the form of ORUS and The Family. One supposedly trying to protect him and one that wants him dead as soon as possible. In walks Gemma. A girl Matthias feels instantly protective towards. The connection is instant and hot despite the limitations of the two. You know the guys from Blake help in anyway they can. Unfortunately betrayal is eminent. Will this betrayal break Matthias and unleash the monster he tried so hard to control? I don’t know about you but I was on the edge of my seat at the end of this book. Scared for everyone. They did a great job delivering this story and I cannot wait for part 2.

4.5 Emotional, Thrilling, Jaw Dropping Stars! Wow, what an emotional, thrilling, jaw dropping story! I was so captivated by Matthias's past and the man he appeared to be now. He was thankful to have a good family to be apart of after what happened to him before. But he still feels uneasy and that something is missing in his life as he struggles with the beast inside. Gemma appears at their office to take Matthias, it's a test to help her get closer to her end game. She is a trained assassin and must find a way to make him trust her. As they become closer, their secrets weigh heavy on them both. I loved how their story unfolded. It was unique, thrilling and steamy. This first book in the Sin Duet set up Matthias and Gemma beautifully, hooking and reeling me in right up to the stunning end! I can't wait to find out what happens next!

This was an excellent, well-written story that had me gripped from start to finish, but there is more to come and I am intrigued to see how the story develops after such a dramatic ending; it left a lot to the imagination and some unanswered questions. This is certainly a book I would have no hesitation in recommending. The story centers around Matthias and Gemma (previously known as Gigi). Living with the Family, Matthias has seen things a child never should. When Gigi arrives, Matthias tries to protect her as best he can, until that fateful day when they try to make a run for it. Matthias is important to Father, so he lives, but Gigi becomes dispensable. Later Matthias is sold to ORUS, where he becomes a legend, until Noah negotiates both his and Matthias’ release. Noah then sets up Blake Security, but Matthias wonders why Noah allows him around his family, when he knows how deadly he is. Then again Noah has faith in him, he always has and so it is this that prompts Matthias to work hard at appearing normal; he is a different person now, even if the others were a little too careful around him. Matthias has never thought of himself as capable of love, that had died years ago, but he still felt a strong affection and a need to protect his family; they were everything to him. Matthias is taking down his old Family; they had taken the only person he had ever cared about in his life and then sold him off; this slow, deliberate dismantling of their empire is payback. Following a cyberattack on Matthias’ systems at Blake Security, he then receives a message. His past is finally coming back to haunt him. As a child, Gigi had been full of hope and love, until the Family had taken her; she never thought she would have these feelings again until she meets Matt and he makes it his life’s mission to protect her, but it hadn’t been enough; he nearly gets them both killed. But Gigi didn’t die that day as a child; instead she is rescued and subsequently trained to become a full-time Agent of ORUS. Out for revenge, Gemma is now a double agent. For the last 3-months she has been undercover with the Family; her knowledge of them from when she was a child is invaluable. Father is her ultimate target, but her loyalty is being tested until one last test brings her to her target at Blake Security. This isn’t Gemma’s first kill, but it is the first kill where she knew nothing about the target; who were the Family sending her after? Whoever the target is they want him badly, so if they want him Orion wants him too, so it would mean faking proof of death. But something tells Gemma this is no ordinary man. Matthias has something that belongs to Gemma; can it really be her Matt and what does the future hold for them when she is hiding the truth from him. Gemma knows she should talk to Matthias but before she gets the chance he makes a devastating discovery. As Gemma relays her story she unwittingly unleashes Matthias’ monster and now it is ready to play. Matthias didn’t know what he was fighting, why he was fighting and what was so important that he had to kill these people. Nevertheless, he wasn’t going to be taken unware when he had pure rage, hatred and fear on his side; he also has his orders. A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.

This is book 1 of the Sin Duet, but is part of the on going saga of the Blake Securities Crew. (The Shameless Universe, also including the Shameless Trilogy, The Force Duet, and the Deep Duet) This Duet is about Mattias. Mattias is the youngest of the Blake Securities crew, and we learned in previous books, a former ORUS agent. He is also a computer-tech guru. He has a murky past, that is explained in this story, and that past comes back to haunt him. (Since it's not revealed in the blurb, I'm not going to get into the other half of this HEA, but I will say, the heat levels are off the charts!) As with the previous books, this story is full of drama, action, bad guys, and questionable loyalties. The Blake Securities family is tight, and its a family of their own making. However, outside forces drive events that flow from book to book, and you never know what is going to happen next. This being the first half of a duet, it does end in a cliff hanger, but this one totally blew my mind! Amazing ending, and I can't wait until the next part to find out what happens!

Sin Book 1 by Minx Malone and Nana Malone What a phenomenal story that I absolutely enjoyed reading. This is my favorite characters in the world of Blake's Security. Which is why this story is a favorite of mine! It's full of surprises and intrigue so if you enjoy a fast-paced, romantic, suspenseful, full of passion and alpha males, then you'll want to read Sin, these two ladies are very talented and can created a fantastic story even with a cliffhanger. This is a Magnificent addition to the Sin series and a great addition to what I hope will be an amazing contemporary romance series. The story features Matthias and Gemma but there is also more characters to enjoyed and I can't wait to read their stories because I know they will be exciting too. Matthias is a nerdy, sexy, handsome technology guy, he runs the technical support for Blake Security and he uses his skills to find any information the company needs. Gemma is a agent for Orius who is undercover with the Family alone she is trying to save the mark but she has no idea that Matthias is the mark and he is a childhood friend who she thought was killed. What I enjoyed the most about this story is there is plenty of steam, the good sweaty kind, that's the blazing hot. Their chemistry is faultless and I enjoyed how combustible the passion between these two characters. Just when you think they are about to get their happily ever after the authors takes us for a another thrill ride, and even then they aren't done with us yet! They keep the excitement coming until the very end plus the story promises much much more with their next book. So if you are looking for a Magnificent book to Read you may want to make room on your TBR list for more books from the Malone ladies, because you will be HOOKED from the beginning on everyone of their books!

Ahh, sweet, broken Matthias. He's such a contradiction - fiercely loyal and protective, yet terrified of emotions, tender enough to soothe a crying baby, but absolutely formidable in a fight, and underneath it all, he's broken by his past and determined to keep his secrets hidden. Enter Gemma and his past and present are doomed to collide in a big way. Their story is intense, touched by darkness, and the pull between them is almost magnetic. This is part of a duet, so expect a cliffy, and it's a doozy. The story is romance, but we also get some intrigue, action, and even a bit of humor along the way to an edge of your seat, oh no, they didn't just end it there ending - well, non-ending that left this reader chomping at the bit for the next part of Matthias and Gemma's story.

I don't even know what to say other than WOW, but here goes. This book has me on the edge of my seat and left me with my mouth hanging open. Not to mention the "Noooo" I yelled at the end of the book. I have been waiting for Matthias' story, and it was well worth the wait. I do have to say, under full disclosure, this is a cliffhanger. I hate cliffhangers. But, I can't wait for the next book. The transformations in Matthias' personality and his thought processes are enough to hold your attention. Add in the rest of the group, the surprise, and the intrigue from both ORUS and the Family, and it is hard to put this book down. I voluntarily read and reviewed the Advanced Reader Copy.

Mathias knows how to be unpredictable, he just hasn't figured out how to be vulnerable. Danger haunts him, emotions scare him, but love hides beneath the beast in his soul. He's a good man with a complicated past and a heavy heart, struggling to bury his demons. What happens when the darkness is unleashed and the past invades his present? Sin idles at red alert. The depth of emotions are hard to fight your way through. Gemma and Mathias are cool to the touch, but hot to the senses. SIN burns as it reveals and heals as it breaks.
