CONVICT (Sin City Salvation #2) by A. Zavarelli
Release Date: July 22nd
Stephanie’s 4.25 Blush Review
Convict is book #2 in the Sin City Salvation series. This series captured me from the start! I just loved it! You do not need to read Confessto enjoy Convict!But, as A. Zavarelli states – This book is an interconnected standalone with a complete ending so you can read it first if you’d like. However, the timelines in the books do intersect so if you plan to read Confess I would start with that one first.
Now- onto my review!
He was beautiful. Animalistic. Addictive.
Finally, Birdie’s story!!! I fell in love with Birdie in Confess!She is Gypsy’s younger, impulsive and crazier sister. Her intentions are always good but the execution – maybe not so good! She is running, but time is not on her side. Situations are starting to crash together.
Gypsy asks her husband’s right hand man Ace to keep Birdie out of trouble. It becomes evident that the only way to accomplish that is to take her away to his compound at the Bearded Warriors MC. Convictis not an MC book but contains a few MC references and some brotherly help.
I found Birdie to be reckless and emotional in Confess and yet as her story unfolds in Convictso does her heart and her feelings. She is sacrificial to a fault. But she is also not perfect.
No matter how many times I scrubbed it, I’d never wash away the past.
Ace, Ace, Ace! We met him in Confess as well. A complicated and quiet man. His past has made him a regimented and unemotional man. He feel unworthy of life’s treasures- love, happiness, and joy. He is content but then Birdie infects every molecule of his being. Can two lost & damaged souls heal each other???
What I wanted from her was more than she could ever give. It was everything. Her breath, her words, her fucking mind.
She made me feel, and it wasn’t something I was used to.
Like Confess, Convictis full of twists and unexpected turns. I love how there is no quick fix. Situations needed actual solutions. Actions have actual consequences. While Convicthas a dark element to it, it is not as dark as other A. Zavarelli books.
I wanted her to choose this life with me. Because Birdie had never had a choice in much of anything life dealt her before.
Add to Goodreads:
From the shadows, I’ve tracked her every move.
I was just supposed to watch her. But now, I can’t stop.
She’s my obsession. My addiction. My poison.
Watching her isn’t enough.
The savage in me won’t be satisfied until I take her and make her mine.
One taste and I’m hooked. Too bad for her… I’m never letting her go.
Stalked. Hunted. Captured.
He took me from my life and locked me away in his compound.
The ex-con. The big bad biker. Inked, bearded, and inhumanely sized.
And yet, every time he looks at me, I melt.
This broken beast hides demons behind those brutal eyes. I hate him… and I crave him. His touch, his words, his lips.
When my enemies come for me, he vows to protect me as long as I do what he says. I’ll be secure in this prison he created for me.
But who will protect me from him?
He dragged his nose through my hair, breathing me in. And then he pressed his lips against the shell of my ear, repeating the process all over again as he kissed his way down my jaw. When he finally got to my lips, I was hungry and wet for him. Dinner was scattered on the floor around us, long forgotten as his fingers grazed the hem of the silk robe against my thigh. He pulled it aside, then repeated the action on the other leg.
Leaning back, he studied my face before his eyes drifted to the part of me he’d exposed. I was open for him. Vulnerable to him. He could see everything, and I didn’t try to hide it. This was the broken, filthy part of me he needed to see. It was now or never. He could take it or leave it.
His attention drifted up while he tugged at the loose fabric covering my breasts. When he was finished, all that remained was the rope around my waist and the fabric pooling at my sides. I held my breath as I waited to see what he would do next. After everything that had just happened, more than anything, I wanted him to want me, and yet I was terrified he couldn’t. It didn’t make sense, but it was undeniable. He’d seen me at my worst, and I wanted him to tell me it was okay. It didn’t matter how fucked up I was, he wanted me anyway.
Just like with everything else, Huck did it in his own way. He reached for the zipper on his jeans, slowly dragging it down while his eyes locked onto mine. They were filled with dark promises and threats that reflected in his voice.
“Tell me to stop, Birdie. If you don’t, I’ll never let you go.”
“Don’t stop.” I forced the words from my raw throat. “Don’t you fucking dare.”
