A Necessary Sin (The Sin Trilogy #1) by Georgia Cates

Bleu MacAllister is consumed. A horrific childhood incident has caused every decision in her life to revolve around bringing a monster to justice. With years spent studying The Fellowship, an organized crime brotherhood of liars, thieves, and killers, Bleu will rely on her skills as a special agent to cut Thane Breckenridge off at the knees. But walking hand in hand with retribution means risking collateral damage, in the form of Breckenridge’s son Sinclair—until Sin becomes so much more than Bleu bargained for. She’s always known this undertaking would place her life in danger—she never imagined her heart would be as well.

Georgia Cates has surpassed my expectations!

I LOVED LOVED LOVED Necessary Sin. It was delightful, delicious and deliriously good!

Bleu witnesses her mother’s death because of this, she almost gets killed herself. But the killer never stayed to check if Bleu was really dead.  Years later, Bleu has one thing on her mind…


She’s a trained killer and works for the FBI. She knows the man who killed her mother and she wants his blood.  He’s the head crime boss and the best way to get close enough to him is through …

His son.

Sinclair will become the head crime boss once his dad steps down. He knows his fate and doesn’t have any issues with it.  Until now.  There are many rules Sinclair must abide by and one of them is that he can never date a girl outside the organization, but he can’t stay away from Bleu.


I LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED BLEU! What makes me love her so much is that usually when I read strong Heroines, especially the ones that are trained killers, they “act” bad and really tough. Bleu never “acted” to me, she just seemed to be hardcore and trained.  I loved it. I liked actually getting to know her and I really did feel what she felt.

I felt her pain when she witness her mom died. I felt her anger as she planned avenge her mother’s death. That my friend is called character development and I got it.


Not only do I love a strong Heroine, but I love a matching strong Hero. I totally got Sin. I got his ambition and his issues. I really appreciated the story being told by both POV’s because if I didn’t get it, I don’t think I would have connected so well with Sin. I loved how he cares for Bleu but doesn’t really want to. I love all the obstacles he faces and how he can’t date girls outside of the organization, sure he can have sex with them, but he can’t “claim” them.

I really like the whole claim thing. It feels different than “mine” for some reason and it just really clicked with me.


You would think the whole story would be about Bleu trying to kill her mother’s killer, but it is not. It’s the subplot of the book, but A Necessary Sin is mostly about Bleu and Sin’s relationship. Which I loved.  The attraction between Bleu and Sin is off the charts and yes there is insta-lust, kind of, but it doesn’t take away from the story.  I also liked getting to know the organization and how it worked. I felt like it added a lot of elements to the story and it kept me interested.

I was reading this book like mad and I didn’t want to end. I was looking at the percentage at the bottom of my tablet and I was crying because I was getting closer to finishing.  You will not be disappointed with this one. I simply loved it.

Sinclair Breckenridge’s POV:

“People don’t realize the things they say without uttering a word. Something as simple as the lift in the corner of one’s mouth can reveal thoughts and emotions better than any voice. Body language—it’s nature’s crafty trick, second only to falling in love.”

“Aye. It’s a shan.”

“A shan?”

“Americans would probably use the word shame.”

“Oh. You sound like you know from experience.”

I have no experience. I’m far too intelligent for such nonsense. “When one falls in love, that person makes the decision to become vulnerable. It’s not a path I’d ever willingly choose so, no. What about you? Has Bonny Bleu ever been in love?”

“I’ve tried dating but it never matters what I do. I’m always what’s wrong.” She’s nervously twisting the ring on her thumb. “I’m able to capture other’s emotions in photos yet I can’t get a grip on my own. I avoid connecting with people. I make myself an island so it gives me an excuse to remain alone.” She sighs and looks embarrassed. “Wow. That sounded like a psychological profile … or something.”
