Ashlyn just wants to move on with her life. Run her bakery. Heal her broken heart. She's had three years to try and forget Dante Fontaine.


To the rest of the world, Dante is Hollywood royalty, the ridiculously attractive oldest son of the notorious Fontaine family.


To Ashlyn? He’s the guy who took her virginity and made her swear off men forever.


But when an accidental--and humiliating--encounter brings him back into her life, Ashlyn realizes that no matter how hard she’s tried to forget about him, Dante definitely hasn’t forgotten about her.


…and this time, he's not going to let her go.



I have read Ember Casey's previous novels before and it was just amazing! So when I heard about The Sweet Taste of Sin, I couldn't sign up fast enough. I'm telling you now: if you haven't read any of Ember Casey's books, you should! You're missing out. A lot.


"I never got over you. I tried. I told myself you were better off without me. That I should give you the chance to find someone who could give you everything you deserved. But I couldn't forget you." (ARC 2148)


I have a thing for enthralling blurbs; it immediately pulls me in. Three years trying to get over Dante Fontaine-- I say that there is a i-hate-you-but-i-love-you kind of relationship. I fantasized what would happen before this book was sent to me and I know it will be sinfully good. Look who's got a new book boyfriend! 


"Tell me you love him, Ashlyn. That he's the one you want in your bed at night. The one you want fucking you. The one whose name you want to cry out when you're coming. The one whose arms you want around you every morning. Tell me you want him and no one else."

Looking into his eyes-seeing the hunger, the desperation, the vulnerability-I'm finding it impossible to say anything at all.

"Tell me," he says, leaning even closer, "or I swear, I'm going to make you forget him." (ARC 1529)


Ember Casey left my heart completely, utterly and unregretfully a roller coaster of emotions. She makes these electrifying scenes leaving me defenseless; somehow gets out of the book to sear your body throughout that had me jumping, squealing and making dying pterodactyl noises at the same time plus my sister giving me weird looks. I was high from no-elsa-cant-stop-these-feels. And I fucking loved it.


"I don't care if the whole world hears it," he says. "I don't even care if you turn me down in front of all these people. In front of the whole world. I love you, Ashlyn." (ARC 3128)


The Sweet Taste of Sin is a perfect blend of humor, romance, passion and angst that had me literally out of my seat. No doubt my favourite book of Ember Casey so far! If you enjoy these kinds of books, give this a try and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
