Dr. Liliana Carrera nearly lost her life to Wardwell scientists. She won't let them harm other innocent victims, like her new patient, Jesse Bradford. The former pro athlete had the best hands in the NFL . . . until an injury forced him to undergo Wardwell's experimental gene therapy. Now Jesse's gorgeous body is superhuman-but his strength comes at a price.
With Wardwell threatening his family, Jesse can't tell Liliana all he knows. Yet he can't resist her compassion . . . or her healing, erotic touch. As their passion flares, Jesse's body becomes dangerous and volatile. For evil men are plotting to change the face of humanity-and will destroy whoever stands in their way.

After reading and reviewing Ms Pineiro's first book Sins of the Flesh , I was elated getting her e mail asking our Review Team to review the second book in the series called Stronger Than Sin.
We are re-introduced to Dr Liliana Carrera who was instrumental in helping her brother Mick in the first book. He was working on a case, and fell in love with what they thought was a cold blooded killer. We learned that a bunch of mad scientists, were doing medical experiments on humans, trying to change their DNA. Liliana worked as a team with her friend and partner Carmen at the local hospital to save her .
In this book, Dr. Carrera is brought to the home of a very well known and popular ex Football Player Jesse Bradford by an FBI agent Hank Whittaker. Jesse's career was ended with a severe injury. He was quite a player in his day on the field as well with the women. His brashness has put him in the position he is in now, buying his way to use unorthodox means to fix himself. He has now become a prisoner of these mad men. DNA experiments have changed him as well, his skin turning to bone.
Although this book and the first could be stand alone, the author gives enough back story to not have to have read the first. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading them in order. STRONGER THAN SIN is fast and furious. Liliana is a smart woman and is not fooled easily. Jesse is just a good soul trying to do the right thing. Thank goodness they meet. The chemistry is electric, the story believable. The characters come together like an explosion.. Great story flow, and an ending so powerful it will leave you looking at that last page and just BLINK.
Bravo Ms Pineiro a job well done.

J: I am glad I read book #1 first and loved it, because this one was a disappointment. The romance did not seem real, the story line became more annoying than suspenseful. I kept waiting for the real story to begin and when it finally did, it seemed all too brief and anticlimatic. The ending was just plain cheesy and did not inspire any interest in another book.

I absolutely, positively, LOVED this book! Liliana and Jesse are two amazing characters who made their way into my heart and I enjoyed going on an adventure with them. If you like hot guys, romance and suspense, Stronger Than Sin is a must read!

The mad scientists are still on the loose and they are looking for those subjects who come willingly with money or forcibly, it does not matter. Jesse Bradford had the injury and the money so he was a perfect fit for the insane group trying to control DNA any way possible.
Jesse was the golden boy of football until the day he received a career ending injury and then made an even worse decision to fix the problem anyway he had to. Conventional medicine could not put him back onto the playing field but a physician of questionable reputation said he would and Jesse bite into the apple that took him straight to perdition and punished him unspeakably for his decision. The price Jesse paid was unbelievable and he thought he would never see daylight again but then in walked Dr. Lilianna Carrera straight out of the darkness providing him with light to heal, a balm to cool his anger and love to temper his soul. She was there courtesy of the FBI and stood her ground with them but seriously questioned if the FBI really did hire goombas as bodyguards?
Lilianna was on a mission to find a cure to the destruction the gene replication caused because it touched her personally and now Jesse was showing the same signs of the disease and she thought there was hope to stop this insanity and she was going to find it. But Jesse was lying to her, keeping secrets and coming off friendly but deep down inside he was raging with anger that Lilianna wanted no part of, once was enough in anyone's life. But Lilianna also saw the tender and caring Jesse and knew that what he wanted more than anything in life was to be a normal person again and not some creature that needed to be caged and tortured to behave.
Lilianna grew day-by-day closer to Jesse and as the secrets spill out between them she hatches a plan that will save them both and possibly cure Jesse for good. But Jesse is still leery of his desire for her and not sure he can let the walls come down completely around his heart. Jesse knows that he is not good enough for her but will Lilianna accept what he has to offer even if it damaged goods? Separately they are strong but together they are powerful and can help each other quiet the demons and shut down the madness and forgiving each other for any sins.
This 2nd book in the series following the wonderful 2009 Sins of the Flesh is just as amazing. Jesse as the alpha male is complicated and well written to show the depth of his desire and feelings. Lilianna as the female counterpart is a sassy, brash and powerful woman who knows how much she will take. It is a great match and adding the family, friends and complexities of the medical drama you have a great mix and when the bad guys come off this strong you know you have a winning combination.

A few months earlier, Dr. Liliana Carrera nearly lost her life to Wardwell scientists when her brother fell in love with one of their victims and they came after them. There are more Wardwell patients out there who still need to be found after the doctors escaped. Wardwell's experimental gene therapy treatments are creating side effects unlike anything scientists have ever seen. Determined to help these patients, Liliana has been working on curing them, including her new patient, Jesse Bradford. The former pro athlete once had the best hands in the NFL, but now every injury he sustains turns his tissue to bone thanks to the therapy. Wardwell has threatened Jesse's family, and he can't tell Liliana what he knows or it puts her at risk. As a heated passion between them intensifies, so does the threat against everything they hold dear. Now it's become a race against time to cure Jesse before others succumb to the fate of men who will destroy anything in their way to pursuing greatness.
This is the second book in the "Sin" series, following Sins of the Flesh. Though part of a series, this is a stand alone read.
What I truly love about this new series from a wonderful author is that it has something for everyone-- a little science, a little paranormal, a lot of suspense, and a lot of romance. The perfect read! Though a work of fiction, it poses a fascinating argument for what happens if we take our pursuit of science too far. What will curing diseases mean in the long run? How far will the human determination for prominence take us? In saying that, the romance and suspense were captivating, as always from Caridad. She's a bestseller for a reason. Her writing style-- a mix a dry humor and clever emotional tugging-- makes her a stand alone author. The simplicity in which she sets her stage allows readers to easily transition to the characters surroundings. A hero you can fall for and a heroine to admire. Highly recommended! No, scratch that. Not to be missed!

The Wardwell scientists almost killed Dr. Liliana Carrera so she has dedicated her life to save others from these evil maniacs. Her current patient is former NFL player Jesse Bradford whose receiving career was cut short by an injury. As she tries to help the football star recover, he conceals from her that he works for her enemy, the Wardell scientists who are blackmailing him to steal her secrets by threatening to harm his ailing sister.
Liliana falls in love with her patient; he feels the same way about his healer. Thus he also feels guilt as he is caught between the two women he loves in the world; for whichever one he saves the other is dead.
The second scintillating Sin story (see Sins of the Flesh) is a stupendous action-packed science fiction romance starring two survivors. She is a dedicated doctor while he is tacked behind the line between saving his sister and his soul mate. With a terrific medical twist re his health, fans will enjoy the latest mad scientists'' saga as love is Stronger than Sin, but love also leads to conflicting multiple relationships.
