Publisher's Summary

Twenty-something Kat Reid is loving life as an in-demand Hollywood makeup artist. She has absolutely no interest in rock 'n' roll, but in order to pay the mortgage, she agrees to work on the set of a rock video for the world-famous rockers known as Bad Habit...which brings her face-to-face with Nico Nyx, lead singer of Bad Habit and Adonis in the flesh.
However, the fiercely independent Kat isn't impressed by the hard-living, womanizing rock star. But when Nico's model girlfriend shows up to the set drunk and Kat is tapped to replace her as the video's sexy bride, her combustible chemistry with Nico suddenly threatens to consume the set. Nico feels it, too - and becomes determined to win Kat over, body and soul. Yet behind his rock god swagger, Nico hides a dark secret. Can he rock Kat's world forever, or will he just break her heart?

Like It, But Didn't Love it....

Sweet As Sin was a little darker than I anticipated with plot filled with suspense, secrets, and a little danger, but was balanced out with a little humor, instant chemistry, and a few steamy scenes.

Some Spoilers;
Nico and Kate are an unlikely pair, he's the lead singer of Bad Habit, she's a make-up artist. Told only from Kat's POV, she meets Nico while on the set to do make-up for Nico, his girlfriend, and the band as they get ready to shoot their next music video. Nico's girlfriend is high, incapacitated, and unable to preform in the video. Instead of them rescheduling, he has Kat fill in for Avery. There's an immediate attraction, but Kat doesn't want anything to do with Nico because he has a girlfriend. Nico denies Avery is his girlfriend, and starts pursuing Kat. Once he convinces Kat he's single, they start a relationship. From the beginning, you get glimpses of Nico's slightly darker side. He doesn't handle his anger very well, but he's never abuses to Kat. One night while Kat is spending time with Nico at his place, Avery shows up. Nico doesn't hesitate to leave Kat's side to take care of Avery. Kat gets angry, breaks things off because Nico basically tells her, Avery will always come first. What Kat doesn't know Nico and Avery share a dark secret about their relationship. Everyone things she is his girlfriend, but their relationship goes much deeper. Nico may be a rock star, but his life before stardom wasn't pretty, and now his past is catching up to him, and affecting his and Kat's relationship.

Sweet As Sin had an interesting plot, not too dark, and filled with secrets that kept me engaged. I would have loved to have heard some of Nico's POV. It's definitely an instant love story, and while Nico's character had a way with words, the sex scenes were mild IMO. Nico did use sex as a way to express his anger, but it wasn't over the top.

The narration was good.

Mixed feelings about this one.

I enjoyed the story line. I liked a strong female lead. I liked that it was different. However, the performance left me putting it a aside to listen to something better, which is why I gave it fewer stars. If I can put a book aside it is a sure sign that it will take me a while to finish it which means it is not holding my interest. Chances are I may not finish it all because I am not that invested in the story. I do not think this story is credit worthy, but perhaps a deeply discounted sale.
