My Fallen Saint (Fallen Saint Series #1) by J. Kenner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a super twisty suspenseful romance with lots of “WOW – did not see that coming” surprises throughout the story. Ellie is our headstrong heroine heading back to her hometown to interview a uberwealthy alpha philanthropist. She is an ex-cop who is now an investigative journalist – oh and she is also dead set on finding her uncle’s killer. Which may have her ending up in the sights of the mafia type organized crime guys.
Devlin Saint is our anti-hero and in typical J. Kenner style he is hot, loaded and obsessed with Ellie. He kind of comes off with a Damien Stark sort of aloofness.
Devlin doesn’t have much of a published past that Ellie can get info on for her profile. He is basically a mystery up until their first face to face. SO — now, I can’t get into much on this story without any spoilers – but we do get some “what happens in Vegas” hotness to swoon over.
There is some dark stuff especially details arising out of the Human trafficking philanthropy Devlin heads up. The big bad guys are being taken out – not sure by whom and the ending is quite a doozy – but not a cliffhanger as such.
My Fallen Saint is a great read as a standalone and I would definitely recommend it. There are hints towards the next book in the series (My Beautiful Sin) that I will absolutely be reading! Maybe JK will answer some questions like is Roane or Brandy’s new guy baddies or goodies? I am thinking that one of them is not on the up and up – we will soon find out.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher Martin & Olive for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
