Book Review: Sins of the Flesh by: Caridad Pineiro

Summary: Caterina Shaw's days are numbered. Her only chance for survival is a highly experimental gene treatment-a risk she willingly takes. But now Caterina barely recognizes herself. She has new, terrifying powers, an exotic, arresting body-and she's been accused of a savage murder, sending her on the run. Mick Carrera is a mercenary and an expert at capturing elusive, clever prey. Yet the woman he's hunting down is far from the vicious killer he's been told to expect: Caterina is wounded, vulnerable, and a startling mystery of medical science. Even more, she's a beautiful woman whose innocent sensuality tempts Mick to show her exactly how thrilling pleasure can be. The heat that builds between them is irresistible, but surrendering to it could kill them both . . . for a dangerous group is plotting its next move using Caterina as its deadly pawn.

This books started out great, I was on the edge of my seat, unable to turn the pages fast enough. When it got towards the middle, it started to fizzle and then just trudge along at that steam until the end. This book was just ok for me after the flame out that was the beginning. The characters aren't too bad, I wish we could have learned a bit more about who Cat was before she was altered. Mick and Cat were ok together, I don't think any real lasting relationship could spring up like it did with them under similar conditions and what not, but it is fiction, that is the point. I also felt like something was missing between them, I know that they of course have issues to start, what romance doesn't, but I wasn't feeling them together towards the end. But, it was very diffrent than any other paranormal/sci fi sort of book I have ever read, and I can appreciate that. It was very interesting to read because I don't know a ton about genetics so I learned a little bit there as well. So overall this book was pretty good, just some kinks for me. I will definitely give the next one a try.

  1. Totally agree - the beginning was great and then...nothing happens. I felt like the book couldn't decide if it wanted to be a paranormal romance or a rom suspense..so it just floated along.

    Nice review!
