Locked in with the town bad boy . . .
Most women would be scared, but Gabriella’s only worried about resisting Cruz Walsh, who’s even hotter than he was back in high school. Cruz was wrongly accused of the high-profile crime for which he was imprisoned; Gabriella’s desperate for the scoop that will get her career off the ground and get her out of Sweet Hill, where everyone still remembers her as “Flabby Gabby.” Being stuck in a supply closet with Cruz is the perfect opportunity to land an interview. What Bri doesn’t count on is Cruz taking “up-close and personal” to a whole new level.
If there’s a silver lining to the hell Cruz went through, it’s that losing his freedom put everything in perspective. Maybe starting over someplace new would be easier, but after years locked up, Cruz values his family—and his true friends—more than ever. So he’s back home, facing the gossip, dodging reporters . . . and face-to-face with Gabriella Rossi. They’ve both changed: Bri wants a story and Cruz just wants her. Another thing he’s learned? Don’t let a good thing slip away.

“How long have you been wanting to kiss me?”
It was tempting to fling the truth at him—the truth that they had already kissed. It would feel good to catch him off guard and watch him absorb that fact.
She couldn’t do it, of course. After the satisfaction of shocking him wore off, she’d be left with the awkwardness of him knowing she was the idiot who had kissed him in the boathouse while he thought she was someone else.
“You were stroking my lips,” he reminded.
“I was checking to see if you were breathing.”
He whirled her around, sending her colliding into his chest.
“Oh!” Her hands came up to his chest, palms flattening on the very body she had only moments ago felt at her leisure. Now it felt different. Now he was awake. Alert . . .his eyes as sharp as a hawk’s gaze on her. Now his heart pounded swift and hard beneath her touch.
Beautiful Sinner is book five in the Devil's Rock Series and is Cruz and Gabriella's story.
Both Cruz and Gabby have a painful past and history, He went to prison for a crime he didn't commit and Gabby well her's is a little less dramatic but no less hurtful. Now they are both back in town with plans of their own, but find themselves together. With undeniable chemistry, there's so much more to these two than one would expect at first.
I enjoyed watching as things progressed between these two, their romance was definitely more of a slow burn, but that just fit the characters I was discovering them to be as I read further in to their book. I enjoyed seeing Gabriella as she grew and changed as teh story progressed, less hampered by her past and more firm in who she is and wants to be in the present.
The story moved along at a steady pace that surrounded all parts of it and not just their slow build to a full blown romance. I was pulled in from the start and left on the hook as I rooted for these two to not only find their way together but to move on from the past.
