When Sinners Kneel (The Blackest Gold World)
by R. Scarlett
Genre: NA PNR
Release Date: March 8, 2018
I finished WHEN SINNERS KNEEL by R. Scarlett and I’m just in awe. I LOVED IT SO MUCH. I’ll be the first to say that I’ve not read a ton of paranormal romances; other than a few here or there, and Twilight, of course. But the blurb for this book had me super intrigued and when I realized it was a spinoff from her The Blackest Gold series, I jumped on it
“There was a lot of anger inside him. And loneliness. But most importantly, desire. Burning, restless desire.”
How does a character without a heart still come across as swoon-y?! Meet Beau Knight and you’ll see. I’m not entirely sure how I’ll ever get over him. This guy was all dark, domineering, toxic and addictive. On top of all of that, this heartless beast still possessed a need of waiting to help and protect Lex.
“They broke the wrong parts of me. They broke my wings and forgot I had claws.”
Alexandra (Lex) Harvey was a strong, feisty heroine. She’s lived through and experienced some of the unimaginable. A girl who wears her emotions on her sleeve and continued to fight for the few she held dear in her life. Her and Beau were a perfect mixture of heartbreak and raw chemistry.
“He was the storm—the storm I walked into while everyone ran the opposite direction. I welcomed him. I thrived inside of him. I let him conquer me. Dig his claws and teeth in deep.
Beau and Lex’s story was so incredibly, passionately intense. And the writing?! Phenomenal! How do I possibly move on from this brilliant world Rebecca created? Answer: I don’t because I have Tensley waiting on me! And yes, I’m STILL kicking myself because this was my first book by Rebecca. So, lesson: don’t be like Elizabeth and let this book, series, or this author pass you by. Read it and I hope you love it as much as I did!
