For every action, there is a reaction. 

People aren’t always who they say they are. Everyone has their secrets. Some are more evil than I ever thought imaginable.

I was left broken and alone after my boyfriend was murdered in my bar.

An old acquaintance moves into Liam’s home and a spark is ignited deep inside me.

Becoming vulnerable made me weak, and I never saw it coming.

When obsession takes over, lies and deceit can be killer.

BARB GIVES THIS 3 stars

Tinsley was a normal gal who had everything she ever wanted. She owns her own bars, she had a very devoted boyfriend, just like she was so devoted to him. They had plans for the future but then her world came to a crashing down when she found her boyfriend dead in the back of her bar. How can she live without him? They had planned a future but that future came to a halt and she is so lost.

This was a real good book but I do think some of the book was rushed in some places but over all it kept my attention and kept me guessing until the very end. This author has a way of keeping the reader on the edge of their seat. There are a few surprises along the way but one main big surprise toward the end of the book. I can’t wait to read more from this author and if the future books have the qualities that this one has, then this particular author will go far.

Watching movers pack away his things and throw them into the truck is so impersonal. Tossing the boxes into a truck with no thought as to what they are handling. I wish I had the strength to be the one who packed it all away, but I couldn’t. It was hard enough to pack up my things. I moved my stuff out of the home two weeks ago, but the majority of everything in that home was his. 
He was my other half. My soul mate. One morning, we were completely in love and talking about starting a family, and then by nightfall, I had found my boyfriend barely alive in the storage room of the bar I owned. I rode with him as he was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance, praying he would pull through even though the look on the paramedics’ faces told me otherwise. After what seemed like forever in the waiting room, doctors gave me the news he didn’t make it. The police questioned me extensively, and later that night, I came home to his empty house. From that day on, I have been on autopilot.

Sinfully and Regretfully take place around the same time frame and can even be read in reverse order (will give more background on Payton and Ryder’s story).
