Genre: Urban Fantasy
A lot of bad hands get dealt in Vegas, but E. L. Speare may be holding one of the worst: He’s cursed with the need to commit sins, and if he misses his daily quota, there’s hell to pay—literally. Fortunately, his hometown affords him plenty of chances to behave badly.
But Speare’s newest case really has him going out on a limb. The right-hand man of a notorious crime boss has been found dead in a Dumpster—minus his right hand, not to mention the rest of his arm. What catches Speare’s attention, however, is that the missing appendage was severed clean by a demon-sword, a frighteningly powerful tool of the underworld.
Speare’s out of his element, so he turns to a specialist: Ardeth Coyle, master thief, dealer in occult artifacts, and bona fide temptress. Ardeth’s hotter than a Las Vegas sidewalk on the Fourth of July, but she’s one sin Speare has to resist.
The dismembered corpses are piling up, unimaginable evil lurks in the shadows, and if this odd couple hopes to beat the odds, Speare needs to keep his hands off Ardeth, and his head in the game.
Made For Sin by Stacia Kane
Made for Sin is an intriguing start to a new Stacia Kane Series with a highly original premise. Speare, the main male characters, must commit sin every day or he will pay for it. Living in Vegas definitely helps Speare meet his quota.
Speare finds himself caught up in an investigation that involves a crime boss, demon blade and an accomplished but sexy thief, Ardeth.
Corpses begin to pile up and together Ardeth and Speare must unravel the mystery behind the mutilations before it might be Speare’s head on the block next.
I was intrigued but never really connected with the story. The premise, the world building was there but I wasn’t a big fan of Speare which made this a 3.5 stars read for me.
I received this ARC copy of Made for Sin from Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication August 30, 2016.
