Red is the color of blood, sacrifice, danger, and courage. It’s also associated with heat, passion, and sexuality. When two people meet unexpectedly with an inexplicable attraction that defies common understanding…it can be called RED SIN.

Julia and Van found one another in a shaken snow globe. Stranded in a blizzard, they embraced being two individuals with no last names. The plan was to walk away from each other with no regrets—until that plan changed.

Julia’s life was delivered a staggering blow the day she discovered her fiancé’s infidelity. The night she met a handsome stranger, one who showed her the possibility of a life filled with more than the fulfillment of expectations, she took a chance.

When it comes to business, Donovan Sherman is a wolf—a bloodthirsty carnivore who leaves wounded prey and victims in his wake. He learned from the best, his onetime nemesis and now-mentor, Lennox Demetri, who showed him that opportunities are only ripe for those willing to risk it all, a lesson Donovan took to heart.

With Julia McGrath, Donovan must decide if this beautiful woman who showed him the meaning of red sin will fall victim as his prey or if after experiencing the unbridled passion, there is more that he wants.

From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a brand-new age-gap, family saga, chance meeting, contemporary romantic-suspense novel in the world of high finance, where success is sweet and revenge is sweeter.

My Rating:★★⋆

The blurb had me hooked from the start. It promised to have everything I need in a book. Age gap? Check. Billionaire? Check. Sweet girl and lonely aloof man? Yes please.

I loved the growth I saw in Julia. Coming from a family of wealth and prestige, her family has plans for her. Engaged to be married to her childhood friend, until she makes a discovery that sets her life on a different path. Her passion for literature and writing, coupled with her desperation to get away from Chicago leads her to apply for a job that allows her the privacy she needs while she gets herself together and pursue her passion for writing. The last thing she expected was to meet a mountain man who came to her rescue when she was half frozen to death. She definitely never expected him to be her prospective employer.

Donovan Sherman is multi-billionaire businessman who seeks and enjoys a life of solitude.  His life is simple. He makes money just for shits and giggles. So much has happened that he never took the time to address his personal life. So when he finds a half frozen woman just outside his property, the last thing he expected was the instant attraction and his need for her.

While I enjoyed the story, I have to admit I had to work extra hard to stay with it. The story did not reflect the blurb at all. I do feel conned by the blurb. What I expected is not what I got so I struggled to even keep reading it. But others seem to rate it high so it thought I’d stick with it.

Firstly, I’m not a fan of insta-love or chemistry. It very rare that a story does it well in a way that makes it at least seem believable.

Secondly, there are far too many secrets surrounding Don. There is very little we know about him. We know he has beef with his family, but why? A bit more background would have been nice.

I can’t believe that Julia agreed to marry a man with so much questionable behaviour. The photos being take down, yet not one time ask why or fight harder to better understand what she’s getting herself into? No.

They story wasn’t exactly original. In fact, it reminded me of Sky Warren’s Rochester Trilogy. A LOT!

But nonetheless, I can’t wait to find out what happens after that cliff-hanger. Hopefully we spend more time we Donovan and get to know him better.
