~ I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ~ 

Behind the doors of the House of Sin, no one is ever safe… I love him. It’s the only truth that matters now. I’ve cast my old life aside and given myself fully to his wants and desires, to the fire he alone ignites inside me. And together, we’ve found strength and salvation in each other. But there are evil forces, people who see me as a threat that must be undone. I trust that our love can withstand any test, but I can’t ignore the growing shadows lurking beyond our door. Because I understand now that those shadows are not waiting to destroy me as I once feared. They’ve come for him. To steal him away from me for good. And to finally and completely engulf him in a sinister world he’s eluded for so long. In the inescapable darkness of the House of Sin… 

My Review:

This was an interesting series for me, one that I will admit in the beginning I wasn't sure I was going to like it, but by the end I was completely enraptured with.  

Throughout the series we have watched Natalie and Luc fall into a deep and honest love.  There were moments of frustration with them where I almost put the book down and stepped away from it, but when all is said and done their mutual lust and first sight becomes a bond that can be torn away and I loved that about this story.  I loved that even when one of them was all drama they never let it stay with them for long.  They learned the very hard lesson of trust and communication and it tool all three books to get there, but it was worth it in the end.  

As odd as it may seem, another thing I loved were the truly emotionally painful moments. This book has some pretty darn moments, moments that might leave the reader completely disgusted with the nature of the 'Sin' that occurs, and honestly it should.  It should leave you appalled at what these people think acceptable and even at times I was appalled with Luc for not standing up to fight it sooner.  I see his reasoning but at the same time you just want to yell at him to make it all stop.  It does all come to a head in the most dramatic ways, and it will leave you shocked at the brutality of it but also cheering because finally, FINALLY the good guys are winning.  

Thankfully for us, the reader, Elisabeth does a wonderful job of taking these harsh moments and bringing them back down and luckily it's mostly through some pretty damn hot steamy moments, ha. I also loved that her characters acknowledged that they used sex as a way to communicate with each other, to find their common and stable ground.  I read so many romance books where every time the characters have a problem the have sex and suddenly everything is okay.  There was a moment in this story where I started to feel that, ugh, not again...can't you just talk to one another feeling but just at that age moment Luc recognized that they weren't fixing their relationship but by having these steam filled moments they were reconnecting and allowing themselves to take a moment and remember who they are together.  It was a really bright spot for me to have the characters say 'yeah, we know, every time you turn around we're making up in a bed but we aren't, not really, we're just coming back together so that we can talk.'   

I really adored this love story, even without all the drama that unfolded around them.  They took us on quite the ride but each step of the way they showed the reader that love does not come easy, it must be worked on, couple must trust in one another, they must communicate, they must forgive.  In the end I love the way it wrapped up for Natalie and Luc, it honestly could not have ended any better...wait, well unless someone took care of Luc's mom, I would have been all down for that, but maybe she'll get hers yet because I’m going crazy feeling like this is not quite the end....dun dun duuuuuuunnnnnn.  Elisabeth Naughton wraps of Luc and Natalie's story, they are HEAing it up right now and I am so happy for them but she leaves just this little hanging possibility that the story isn't quite over and I am totally ready for more!

 I made a fateful mistake. I should never have peeked behind the doors into his forbidden world. But I did, and now I’m a prisoner. Trapped by the man I thought I loved.

He can melt my resolve with one rough, whispered demand, and I feel myself giving in to the desire he still stirs inside me. And yet, if I want to survive, I must find a way to escape. Because if I don’t, I’m afraid I’ll be consumed by a shadowy world that will ultimately destroy me.
