Review: Deceptive Innocence (Pure Sin #1) by Kyra Davis

Deceptive Innocence 1

Deceptive Innocence (Pure Sin #1) by Kyra Davis



Kyra Davis, the New York Times bestselling author of Just One Night, returns with book one in the thrillingly erotic Pure Sin series featuring a beautiful young woman out for revenge—until she falls in love with the one man whose secrets are as dangerous as her own.

Ever since Bell’s mother died while serving time for a murder she didn’t commit, Bell’s been focused on one thing: revenge. She knows her mother was set up by Jonathon Gable, the head of both the powerful Gable family and an international banking corporation. Now she’s determined to take him down—from the inside.

Bell needs access to the Gable home and offices, so she poses as a bartender to seduce her way into the bed—and life—of Jonathon’s rebellious youngest son, Lander. He’s not a typical Gable, spending more time in the dive bars of Harlem than the posh cocktail lounges of the Upper East Side. He has an attraction to danger, a vulnerability Bell isn’t shy about exploiting. It should be easy to uncover the secrets she needs to destroy his family and clear her mother’s name.

But it turns out Lander is much more complicated than she ever imagined. He’s enticing, intelligent, mysterious—plus their sexual chemistry is off the charts. Even though Bell knows he’s the enemy, she can’t help but be moved, both physically and emotionally, by the man she swore was just a target. When he finds out the truth she’s sure both their hearts and her plan will be crushed...until she begins to realize that Lander might be hiding his own secrets, darker than she ever imagined.



5 out of 5 stars

I absolutely loved everything about this. Fantastically twisted and passionate! I could not stop reading! Seriously addicting as I absorbed all the details. 

It's not very often that a plot is so unexpected, it actually catches me by surprise. I loved it! It started out super intriguing and hot. It had this incredible build with a mysterious vibe throughout that had me on the edge of my seat. I was anxious and holding my breath and at times even laughing.

The characters really captivated me. Bell had a very specific agenda and her need for revenge and retribution completely fascinated me. It was just this intricate yet diabolical plan and I was blown away by all the different layers. I loved Lander, he was so complex and seemed to have his own agenda as well and I had so many questions about his motivation and what was going on, I couldn't wait for answers. While some were answered, I have a ton more. The two of them were this unique and perfect pairing. Two of a kind. I loved their passion, it could be raw and intense!

There are so many different players and so much going on, all these different power plays seemed to be happening. Something new would happen and I would think, “this is so messed up but it’s awesome!” I just found it all really thrilling! I loved the development and the subtlety of learning the back story's of everyone's deception and deceit. It was just all so well thought out. 

The ending was intense and while there is some closure, the story is far from over so be prepared for a cliffhanger. The next book, Dangerous Alliance, is out now so you can jump right into it, that's what I'm going to do. I'm dying for the conclusion.

This was just freaking fantastic! Loved it so much! A must read!!!
