Jess's Review ~ Illicit by M.N. Forgy

Illicit (Sin City Outlaws, #4)Illicit by M.N. Forgy
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars


Dark and gritty...just how I like them.

This is not my first Sin City book but I did miss the one before this one. This one could be read as a standalone but I did feel like I was missing some of the other character's back story. Missing what happened before does not hurt your understanding of these two characters though because all of their issues and darkness and craziness is all there for your reading enjoyment.

Raven was given a task and she failed. Now she has become the task and Machete is going to break her, or is he. Raven is a tough cookie; she isn't scared by pain, she doesn't all of a sudden become compliant when threatened with death and she certainly isn't scared of a little blood. She is hard core, but what else is expected when you have a history like hers.

Machete is just a crazy as Raven is, maybe a little more unstable if that is possible...nah, maybe not but definitely close. He lives in the darkness of his soul because he likes it there. He likes to inflict pain, he likes to make others scream and he cares for no one save his brotherhood. He had a taste of what he thought was love once and he refuses to go there again.

This book wasn't quite as scorching as some of the others I have read by this author. Don't get me wrong, when the heat is turned on it's turned all the way up, but there was a lot of gritty story to be told. The club is looking for someone and they think Raven has the information. Raven is unlike any captive that came before her so Machete spends a long time seeing what makes her tick and scream and cry. I devoured this in a day, always waiting to see what was going to happen. Were they going to find their guy, was Raven going to survive her time with the club, was Machete going to throw her off the deep-end, was he going to lose sight of the end game in the many variables that kept me glued to this book and now I want the next one...cause Mac.
