But Im pissed how the hero threatened to rape the heroine when he first met her. Yes he did change his tune when he finds out she's "untouched" but I still remembered when I finished it. Also he was obsessed with getting her breed but not because he wanted to but because it was his duty provide a son. I don't find it romantic being threatened with rape, No, you would find me plotting his death, a horrible and bloody death. #sorrynotsorry. He I'm definitely the minority here and that's ok right?

He was an ok hero after his threatening but who wants a man who threatens to rape you and thinks of you being a whore if you are not a virgin? Are we living in the 1800s that we need to be virgins?

Westlyn Breckenridge is a gorgeous 23 yr. old woman who grew up in Edinburgh as part of The Fellowship. It’s the only life she known as the youngest daughter of a prominent family. When she’s suddenly abducted she’s terrified for her life. Then she meets the man who kidnapped her, & becomes defiant and angry. Kieran Hendry is a 28 yr. old man who is the eldest of four sons. He was born into a position of power & is the future leader of The Order. It’s his duty to ensure the prosperity of his brotherhood & form an alliance with their rival, The Fellowship. After years of bloodshed they want peace. They propose two marriage treaties to bring together The Fellowship & The Order. He doesn’t want a wife, but is committed to fulfilling his obligation. When Kieran lays eyes on the woman who will be his mate, suddenly his burden isn’t so heavy. She’s breathtaking, & he’s instantly attracted to her and her smart mouth. They make an agreement, but after getting to know her better he decides he wants a real marriage. He made a bad first impression & now wants a chance to show her a better side of himself. Westlyn feels such intense sexual chemistry with Kieran. He’s intoxicating, & she’s never felt so wanted or desired. She should hate him, but she’s desperate for him. He’s a strong alpha male who takes what he wants, & he’s decided she’s going to be his wife. He wants her to be his future & has quickly become obsessed with her. He’s showing her respect & working hard to earn her affection, but can he win her heart? -“I’d take you any way you’d give yourself to me.” -“You’re going to love all the things I make your body feel.” -I crave Kieran. I want everything he plans to do to me. -This kiss... I could live a million years and never forget it or the way I feel right now. -He has a way of touching me that makes me forget every logical thought in my head. It doesn’t make sense to me how I can despise him and at the same time respond so strongly to his touch -I freely choose to be yours... I loved this book so much! I’ve read the entire Sin Series, & this was my favorite. It was so damn hot, & I loved how crazy Kieran was for her. He was completely captivated & enchanted with Westlyn from the moment they met. She brought out a vulnerable, tender side of this sexy, tough guy. The captive falls in love with her captor as this arranged marriage becomes very beautiful and real.

I love them so much! So Unintended is going back to its roots. It’s about duty and following orders. I love the writing flow of Unintended, because its lighter (not that the book is light) and it’s a little over the top (not that I have anything wrong with that) and it’s filled with romance (borderline cheesy, but I LOVE THAT STUFF). I Love this series and I never want it to end. Yes, bring lots of people into this world and tell me all of their stories PLEASE! Never stop writing about all the wonderful people. Kieran must choose a bride, it’s his duty and he has three girls to pick from, but he only wants Westlyn. The thing is, Westlyn doesn’t know this. So, he kidnaps her. Don’t you love the storyline? I was gobbling this up like MAD. I had a smile on my face from the first sentence to the last. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Kieran and I love Westlyn. Westlyn is your total damsel and she’s in a prickly situation. I enjoyed reading Westlyn because she’s so different from the other girls. She’s compliant and malleable. She isn’t naive, but very innocent. She’s scared and I love her reaction to Kieran. Kieran understands what he must do and he relishes it and why wouldn’t he? Westlyn is the girl of his dreams and more. Kieran is the over-the-top alpha male brute I love reading in romance novels. I also love that he is the Assassin, he kills but with remorse. The relationship between Kieran and Westlyn is explosive and tension filled. I love the banter between the two and it adds just enough interest where I couldn’t stop reading. I also love the side characters, it should be noted this story takes place at the same time as the previous book (Endurance). I can’t wait to read Lorana’s book, although I really can’t wait for Shaw’s book and there better be Shaw’s book or I’ll be at Georgia Cate’s doorstep begging for it. Overall, I didn’t know what to expect from Unintended, but it was a happy surprise. I’m always surprised with Georgia Cate’s writing and I want the next book ASAP!

Well, like everyone who’s read and loved this series and specially after Endurance, I’ve been dying to know all about what happened in those days after Westlyn and Ellison’s abduction and the agreement of marriage between The Order and The Fellowship. Unintended can be read as a standalone, but to fully enjoy and understand all this Mafia universe – and because the rest of the series are MUST READS – I advise reading all the previous books, where we got to meet not only Kieran and Westlyn, but the rest of gang. Kieran and Westlyn have been raised in the ways of the brotherhoods since they were born, and knew of their fates weren’t really their own, and obligations they would have to fulfill, but that is very different from having to face that reality instantly, and having to accept that in a matter of days they will have to marry someone they don’t even know for the peace of their brotherhoods. Two marriages between their leaders families to seal a peace treaty between two enemy brotherhoods. Wouldn’t it be a wonderful thing to tell our children one day that the brotherhood they’ve grown up in and their mother’s brotherhood were once at war, but our marriage and their existence brought peace to the two of them?” Kidnapping his future intended may seem like a OTT measure by Kieran, but for the man that will be the future leader of The Order, nothing is too much if it insures his objectives are fulfilled and he gets what he wants. To claim his mate. This woman has the power to affect me. Affect my actions. My emotions. It’s a weakness I can’t afford. Oh, yes, Kieran never expected to be so affected by his intended, and I loved how sucker punched he was by his reactions to Westlyn, given his cocky and asshole attitude, specially in the regards of required female purity *insert eye roll* – yeah, yeah, I know it’s a brotherhood/culture thing, but damn, I hate one sided expectations! If the leaders want pure brides they should keep it in their pants too, argh… – made me slap him silly a bunch of times, lol. Ok, rant over, because like I said, it’s a culture thing, and the women, given how they were brought up, are fully aware and understand. And, boy did the man make up for his initial asshole attitude! I did love how Westlyn reacted to him instantly, but never lost her focus of the situation, that she was a captive to The Order, her brotherhood enemies, and that though she was incredibly attracted to Kieran, she remained strong, and true to herself. No man has ever spoken to me the way Kieran does. Telling me that I’m beautiful and that he wants me and that I’m going to be his. Feeling desired and wanted… it’s intoxicating, even if it is coming from this brute. She may have been melting on the inside, and her body begging for all that Kieran was offering, but she knew all that was at stake, and made the man work for it! The sexual tension was off the charts and Kieran was beyond HOT and swoony in every way after their initial confrontation. It was full on ‘seduce Westlyn’ game on! “Even if I say yes to your marriage proposal, I won’t belong to you. I am my own person.” She’s delusional if she believes that misconception. “That’s where you’re wrong, Westlyn. When you take my last name and my cock, you will become mine… my property. But that also means you’ll become my treasure to protect. I will place myself between you and whatever danger presents itself. No harm will ever come to you or our children. That’s my vow to you.” See what I mean? WOW!!! From that point on he really was the PERFECT book boyfriend, and made me swoon and sigh often and constantly. Him revealing his true self, his hidden pain and fragility, to her was just the perfect culmination of their courtship. They were indeed the perfect match. “I don’t know how it’s done in The Fellowship, but we are faithful to our partners. When I claim you, you also claim me. Just as you owe me your faithfulness and loyalty and devotion, I owe you the same. Yep, I’m adoring this Syndicate men! You know how much I worship loyalty and faithfulness in my characters, so you can imagine why this Sin series is one of my favorites, because, so far all the characters have been incredibly loyal to their mates, and Kieran and Westlyn are once again fantastic on that matter. From the start they don’t settle, they show and demand that loyalty and discover that have the same view on their marriage. They want a real marriage, they are each others, and only each others! Westlyn Breckenridge is mine. I will go to fucking war with The Order, The Fellowship, or whoever for her if I must. Kieran stole me… and I liked it. He told me I was beautiful… and I liked it. He took my virginity… and I liked it. A lot. He calls me wife… and I love it. Captor becomes intended becomes lover becomes husband. OMG! They were fantastic! I completely feel in love with these two, and their love story. And Kieran surprised me in the most wonderful ways in how he treated Westlyn. Like she really was his whole world, not only the woman he was obligated to marry, but his life. His salvation. This woman. She’s the light to my dark. The angel to my devil. The quiet to my storm. The key to my prison. “You’re the angel who possesses the power to ease my hell.” Georgia Cates managed to capture all the blossoming of Kieran and Westlyn’s love story, in the most beautiful, organic and realistic of ways, and still maintain all this incredibly and well constructed Mafia universe, that makes us live all this intense emotions right along with all these characters. “Love is like a rose. It blooms at the perfect time when it’s at its most beautiful, but only after being nurtured. That’s what our relationship needs: to be nurtured so it can bloom when it’s at its most beautiful.” “Please, Westlyn. I can’t recall in twenty-eight years ever hearing those words said to me. You’d be the first to say them.” We are so much alike, he and I. Both of us yearning to be loved. Unintended really was so much more romantic and heartfelt than I could have imagined, and I couldn’t have loved Kieran and Westlyn more than I did. It was fantastic to live and go through all these feelings with them. Georgia Cates couldn’t have created a more perfect story for this Mafia arranged marriage, we got all the emotions of the love story plus an enrapturing side plot that is giving us so many potential main characters and interesting plots for the series future. This series keeps getting richer and more and more enticing, and after some considerations pointed out by Kieran himself here, I now hope – PRAY – that Lorna will get her own HEA with another that not Leith, and if that teaser is any indication, I’m hoping she does indeed get her own fresh start and a brand new H, that is the perfect man for her! Fingers crossed and counting down the days!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 She is my other half. My better half. And that is why I will never let her go. I was her kidnapper. I may have taken her as my captive, but she’s the one who captured my heart. When I stole this beautiful woman, all I had in my heart was anger and rage and malice. I had cruel intentions. But then everything changed. My affection for her was unexpected. My love, unintended.

    I've been not so patiently waiting for Westlyn and Kieran's story, and it did not disappoint. It was hot. It was suspenseful. It was romantic. It was sweet. It had that hot and witty banter that Georgia Cates always seems to weave into her stories. If you've read Endurance then you've read the outsiders POV of their story, and let's just say that not everything is as it seemed in that version.

Their romance starts unconventionally to contemporary romance standards, but turns out to be such a sweet and hot combo by the end. I really love their story, and all the ups and downs that are included. In true Georgia Cates fashion she does a fantastic job showcasing this couple while still making all of the side characters interesting. We get another romance that was hinted at previously, and even more questions concerning a few new and old romances. There are a few I'd love to get the story on, and one is teased at the end of this book. Yay! I truly love this series, and would read any couple that is written about from this world! If you like alpha males who are bossy, and contemporary romance with sassy heroines, and a brotherhood trope story line... then this is the story for you. https://instagram.com/p/BaE1jPJAJDG/ ^check out a fan teaser I made on Instagram.

What Kieran didn't realize was that Westlyn was not a doorknob, being turned whenever he wanted. He showed him her feistiness and loyalty. He in turned realized how lucky he was to have her as his future wife. I loved how in sync they were with each other. Kieran's love is shown not only in his actions but his words as well...he had me swooning big time! 5 Sexy Stars

Georgia Cates has me swooning and smiling like a fool with her newest installment to The Sins Series. Unintended was everything that you could have wanted and expected Georgia Cates to deliver. You’re beautiful… and I’m incredibly attracted to you. I don’t think that’s a bad start for an arranged marriage.” When you think of The Fellowship and The Order, brotherhood, honor, family, and loyalty are the center stone of their organization. Kieran Hendry is the next leader in The Order and in such he is expected to marry someone from The Fellowship in order to merge the two organization. And in such, it would make their syndicate a much stronger force. So when Kieran kidnaps Ellison and Westlyn from the Fellowship, he must decide which of the two he wants as his bride. Right away, he knew he wanted Westlyn when she opened her mouth. She was feisty, independent, and fiery. And also she was pure, innocent, and gorgeous. Kieran Hendry makes me feel like a woman. A desired woman . His words, the way he looks at me, his body language. Everything he does is a huge turn-on. Yet, I hate this man. Loathe him. But damn, he has a way of touching me that makes me forget every logical thought in my head. It doesn’t make sense to me how I can despise him and at the same time respond so strongly to his touch.” As Kieran informs Westlyn that she will be his, he slowly shows her his intention that she will be the center of his world. As they spend more time together, Westlyn submits to him and gives him her heart. But what happens when outside forces tries to ruin the plans of their upcoming marriage? Can The Order and The Fellowship come together as a united front? Unintended was one hot read that I could not put down. This book was sizzling, steamy, and sinfully sexy. So if you are looking for a mafia theme romance where the heroes are total alpha male and the heroines are feisty and no wallflower then this book is for you. Georgia Cates

    4.5 Stars Unintended is a standalone in this series, and you can very much read it without any confusion. I have not read the first 3 books in this series, but I read Endurance where we first learned of Kieran and his intentions and let me tell you, I did not like him at all. So I was wondering how Georgia was going to pull this one off. Well Georgia did not let me down at all; she made me fall in love with Kieran. She made me love Kieran and Westlyn, both individually and as a couple. In their 4.5 Stars Unintended is a standalone in this series, and you can very much read it without any confusion. I have not read the first 3 books in this series, but I read Endurance where we first learned of Kieran and his intentions and let me tell you, I did not like him at all. So I was wondering how Georgia was going to pull this one off. Well Georgia did not let me down at all; she made me fall in love with Kieran. She made me love Kieran and Westlyn, both individually and as a couple. In their worlds, things must be done a certain way; they must follow their families paths and continue onto with their heritages. Kieran must a choose a bride as part of his duty and become future leader of The Order. But his family wants to form a treaty with The Fellowship; they want for Kieran to choose a woman from within The Fellowship to bind this treaty of peace and bring these two powers together for the greater good. If you read Endurance, you know that Kieran kidnaps Westlyn and forces her into this marriage. And that is all we know, until now. And Georgia has given a new side of Kieran that I never saw coming. He may be The Order's hitman, but he also has a soft side, an enduring side. And this is the side that he needs to show to Westlyn. Westlyn was stolen from her family and is now being forced to marry someone she met, they very man her took her without permission. Westlyn isn't some pushover; she refuses to become a weak submissive to Kieran. And if Kieran wants to show Westlyn that he's not the ruthless man who stole her away, he's got a lot of making up to do. I love how Westlyn and Kieran's relationship pans out. Watching these two grow together, shows their strengths and what they bring to one another. They knew when to push and when to pull back. I fell in love with these two so much. “Love is like a rose. It blooms at the perfect time when it’s at its most beautiful, but only after being nurtured. That’s what our relationship needs: to be nurtured so it can bloom when it’s at its most beautiful.” I love that we got to see what happened when Kieran captured Westlyn. For those that didn't read Endurance, you won't miss anything; but for those of us who did, it's like a behind the scenes of what happened in Endurance. I was sucked into this story from beginning to end. There was a small part where we skipped a few months and I would loved to see what happened with Westlyn and Kieran then, but that's truly my only gripe about this book. If you love a great love stoy with an amazing HEA, this is the book for you!!

I like it. ♥ “I was already going to kill them, but something snapped in me when I heard that fucker threaten your life.” Kieran cradles the side of my face and caresses my cheek with his thumb. “I’ll never hesitate to kill for you.” In the normal world this is all sorts of wrong but this is fiction. LOL And a bit swoon worthy. ♥ “Mo chroí. That’s what you are to me. My heart. And I love you. I. Love. You. Don’t doubt that for a second.” ♥ “This is what happens to anyone who dares to harm Westlyn. I will never hesitate to kill for her… because she is my heart, and I love her.” ♥ When I stole this beautiful woman, all I had in my heart was anger and rage and malice. I had cruel intentions. But then everything changed. My affection for her was unexpected. My love, unintended.

    Rating: 2.5 This read was quick and decent, not great; which is disappointing because Wes and Keiran’s story was one I was interested in reading since Endurance. The sin trilogy has been slowly declining for me. The author does a great job of snatching my interesting, but something changes and the story doesn’t reach its full potential. Both characters were interesting, but there didn’t seem to be any true connection there besides sex. I mean... what did they really love about each other?

Both characters were interesting, but there didn’t seem to be any true connection there besides sex. I mean... what did they really love about each other? It was all superficial. The pacing in this book was off, it wasn’t meant to instant love- but really it’s what happened sorta of. All of sudden Wes loves him- but based on what? That no one from the Fellowship wanted her or she was craving male attention? Or because he was her first? There wasn’t any deep revelation that helped me draw the conclusion they were in love. Even after the attack it was so predictable that he would express his love. Ugh! So disappointing... because I didn’t get connection from them. I got the feeling they both were in lust. Even the sex scenes were lacking for me. Keiran is suppose to be this bad ass assassin- but nothing support that characterization besides the author stating it a time or two. It just came across like a ‘B’rated movie. You know... good content, but poor acting?! There was good potential here, yet it miss the mark for me. I loved the first 3 books of this series and the Beauty series was excellent. But Endurance and Unintended have not been well crafted IMO. Having said that I will read Lorna and Leith’s book. And I’m damn sure interested in reading Shaw and Mitch’s. It would be great is the latter came first. Or close to Lorna’s. Since I find Mitch and Shaw to be more interesting after the consistent focus on them in this book.

She’s known the rules & her fate for a long time. Kieran on the other hand surprised me. I loved the way he loved her. It was swoon worthy for the situation. This whole series has been pretty great but I’m all on board for this couple. They’re my new favorite couple. I guess Lorna and Leith are next....but I really want to read Shaw and Mitch’s story! I’m totally enamored by him, lol. Great supporting characters, well written, high steam. Recommend.

    I didn’t think Georgia Cates could introduce another couple in her Sin series that could compare to how much I adore Sin and Bleu, not only as a couple but as individuals as well…But, she sure comes close with the introduction of Kieran Hendry and Westlyn Breckenridge in her latest release, The Unintended, partly because of who Kieran and Westlyn become as the Marriage Treaty Alliance is put in place and partly because of the way they provide each other with exactly what they need despite how te I didn’t think Georgia Cates could introduce another couple in her Sin series that could compare to how much I adore Sin and Bleu, not only as a couple but as individuals as well…But, she sure comes close with the introduction of Kieran Hendry and Westlyn Breckenridge in her latest release, The Unintended, partly because of who Kieran and Westlyn become as the Marriage Treaty Alliance is put in place and partly because of the way they provide each other with exactly what they need despite how tenuous their relationship started. The title of Kieran and Westlyn’s story speaks to all of the things that neither of them were prepared for nor ever wanted to contemplate how it would become their reality. Both of them have certain roles in their respective brotherhoods and while Westlyn has no desire to align herself with someone from The Fellowship, she is seen as a bargaining tool when it comes to a treaty between two lethal and powerful organizations. Kieran will one day be the leader of The Order, which means that his fate was pre-determined as soon as he was born, but while he understands it is his duty to follow the dictates of his brotherhood, he doesn’t find it the least bit appealing to be forced to marry a stranger, claiming her immediately as his spouse and the future mother of his children. The way that things first transpire between Kieran and Westlyn does not offer the best first impressions, but as their relationship proceeds and a connection develops, what’s between them becomes about so much more than fulfilling an obligation…it becomes a lifeline for both of them - one that allows Westlyn to feel cherished and respected and one that gives Kieran a beautiful angel who lights up his rather dark and deadly existence. The evolvement of Kieran and Westlyn’s relationship illustrates just how much these two strangers misjudged each other at the start. Both of them were playing a role that they felt would help them, but all it ended up doing was making an already difficult situation that much more stressful. After that initial interaction, though, both began to show one another their true selves…maybe even parts of themselves they didn't know nor had anyone else been shown. It’s crazy to think about who her parents were/are because she is nothing like them; her selflessness as well as her kindness and strength are illustrated throughout the course of the story and the more that she feels comfortable being herself with Kieran, the more he sees just how blessed he is to be ‘forced’ to marry this beautiful and devoted woman. Kieran Hendry is 100% alpha male and he makes no excuses for how he handles things and the actions that must be taken to show everyone the type of leader he will be. But he shows a different side of himself when he’s with Westlyn and it’s that Keiran that she could easily fall in love with if she ever managed to let down her guard and give into her inevitable claiming and union. I love that Georgia Cates allows readers to catch up with past main characters. All of readers’ favorite Fellowship couples and characters make appearances in Westlyn and Keiran’s story, which is always an added bonus when it comes to multiple stories in a series. And as other treaties are set in motion and other endurance trials are taken, it’s clear that a new generation of leaders are ready to take over and carry on the traditions of the brotherhood and perhaps even implement some more modern ideas - ones that include women having more of a say and maybe even using their skill set for more than just producing bairns and making their house their home. At the beginning of Unintended, it seemed like Westlyn was simply a sacrificial lamb - one who had to enter a lion’s den and make sure she didn’t get eaten alive, but as the story progresses and the sexual chemistry between Westlyn and Keiran is heightened, it seems like the capturer becomes the captive because it’s easy to see just how impressed Kieran is with how Westlyn handles herself and how she knows exactly what he needs in certain situations, and as much as he vows to protect and shield her from the darker sides of the kind of life they live, he also allows her light and her softness to ease the storm within him, which indicates that even though neither of them intended to give themselves fully to one another, it happened because they were meant to be each other’s other half. 4.5 Poison Apples (The Fairest of All Book Reviews)

Remarkable and addicting addition to the Sin Trilogy. Ms. Cates has delivered another scorcher love story of when enemies must come together for the greater good. Georgia Cates does not disappoint! EVER! Her stories are flawless, intriguing and powerful. Capturing you from the first word until the last. After being dismissed by all men of The Fellowship thanks to her father, Abram, no man will ever look or touch Westlyn. She still holds pure until Keiran Hendry, the next leader for The Order, grabs her for a truce treaty. Will he sway her to save The Order and The Fellowship, in which to be a claimed woman for the greater good? Or will Kieran’s possessive, dominant nature unravel her ten fold and ignite fury? Will The Order brotherhood welcome her gracefully into the family or will it cause unnecessary drama? Not as dark as the other books of the series, lighter, but still full of romance and swoon-worthy moments from Kieran that will get your heart pumping for sure. Explosive chemistry once Kieran unravels Westlyn’s true bravery and the way he unravels her is heartwarming for the assassin that he is. He is one possessive, alpha male that once his sites are on his woman there is no turning back. Who knew a marksman could have a soft spot for the woman he becomes infatuated with! Westlyn has a heart of gold and even though she is in a sticky situation she sees the good in Keiran, starts to feel the love that she has been missing all her life. “I’ll never hesitate to kill for you.” Unintended is told at the same time of Endurance. There are some overlapping scenarios, which I am grateful for as within Endurance I wondered what truly happened to Westlyn behind closed doors. All the secondary characters make an appearance, making it a show stopping addition. Little secrets are unraveled about other Fellowship romances that had me interested to say the least. I am a huge fan of the Sin Trilogy and I don’t want to see this series end. I am hoping that Lorna and Leith’s story is next in the line up, however, I want to know what happens to Shaw and Mitch. Both tales will be doozies, full of banter and brawls that I am predicting! 5 Sin Stars

This fabulous standalone romance from Georgia Cates’ Sin Series is sexy, seductive, and swoon-worthy! The Sin Series is based upon the machinations and lifestyle of some very exclusive Scottish criminal organizations called The Brotherhood. The men who run these brotherhoods, like longtime rivals The Fellowship and The Order, operate in an extremely territorial “survival of the fittest” fashion. They also have archaic yet chivalrous ideals of placing women on a pedestal of protection and purity. They are used to taking what they want, and using lethal force to keep it. Westlyn Breckinridge is the niece of the Fellowship leader. She’s not in direct succession for the Fellowship Leadership since that falls on her cousins and brother. So, she’s hoping to escape the out-dated and restrictive expectations of her family and someday marry for love, outside the Brotherhood. Those dreams come to a startling halt when she is kidnapped by Kieran Hendry. He’s big, scary, harsh, yet delectably gorgeous. He’d easily have women fawning over his looks and power. But he has captured Westlyn, sight unseen, to make her his treaty bride. Truth be told, he doesn’t want an arranged marriage any more than she does, but lucky for him, he is instantly attracted to his pretty captive and he intends to enjoy her. Not the perfect setup for a love story? Guess again. Georgia Cates is masterful at bringing us such irredeemable cads and making her readers wish they can claim them. Her characters are thoroughly developed, multifaceted, and beautifully realized. Kieran is an assassin, an enforcer, an enemy - yet he has a conscience and a tenderness that he shows only to Westlyn. Westlyn is obedient, loyal, agreeable- but she reserves some sass, guile, and insight for her new lover. Their story was so good, so scorching hot, I had to read it twice! I love the Sin Series and reading about The Brotherhood. Unintended is a real treat, well worth the wait. *ARC received from author in exchange for a sincere review.*

I absolutely LOVE this cast of characters that Georgia Cates has introduced us to in this Sin Series. These books just keep getting better and I am completely captivated by their stories. Unintended is the 5th book in the Sin Series, but it is a complete standalone novel. I would however recommend reading these books in order. I think you get a better understanding of who each characters is and you’ll understand the premise of the storylines better. I don’t a reader would be lost if they read these books out of order, because Georgia does a great job filling in the blanks, but to get the full enjoyment of this series, reading them in order is best. This book is an enemies to lovers type story. It is told in Dual POV and there is NO cliffhanger. The timeframe of this story overlaps Endurance (4th book). So after reading Endurance you get all of your questions about Westlyn answered in this book. I will say this book was slightly different from the others, in that, it was a little bit darker than the other books. Now don’t get me wrong, when I say darker, I just mean that the Hero of the story isn’t like her normal Heroes. This in no way will take a reader out of their comfort zone. This is still a romance story. I was looking forward to this book since I finished reading Endurance and I am happy to say I was not disappointed. I loved every second of Westlyn and Keiran’s story. Two people who normally wouldn’t be together and are forced to be, see how they cope with the situation. I loved watching these two grow together and learn how to love. And the chemistry between them was off the charts HOT!!!! We do get to see other characters from the previous books in this book. I loved catching up with them and seeing what happens. I also liked that she sets up the next book so we kind of know where the story might be going. I look forward to reading that book!!! I would 100% recommend this book/series to all readers. These stories are captivating and ones that will suck you in. If you haven’t read a Georgia Cates book, start with this series….you won’t be sorry!!!!

It's not looking too bright for her future of finding her one true happiness. Kieran Hendry, the next leader of the Order needs a wife to claim to follow in the footsteps of his hierarchy. What better way than to a truce treaty and bed a Fellowship daughter. Kidnapping Westlyn and breaking down her walls wasn't the best plan to claim her, however, finding out a secret might just help the process along. Has Kieran already ruined his chances with his over bearing self, dominant ways or can the pure, heart of gold in Westlyn mend and see the light that hides within the darkness of Kieran? What happens when the truce treaty goes into play, are all players happy, all brotherhoods welcoming? Ms. Cates has always produced flawlessly craftsmanship and with Unintended I feel like she is getting better and better. Even though this novel was not as dark as the previous, it still holds true with suspense, explosive chemistry and drama! I can't wait for what is store next. Will it be Lorna and Leith's story, that one will be like watch fireworks exploding. Or will it be Mitch and Shaw? All I know is I don't want this series to end. I love the characters, the storylines and the romance that concludes each story. I need more Georgia! 5 Sinful Stars!

    The hero was a MCP (Male Chauvinist Pig) of the highest order The heroine was a spineless doormat. The misogyny and sexism in this books got my head spinning. I almost lost my shit when the HEROINE decided to find ways and remedies to get a MALE child. I was truly disgusted reading that part. I stopped reading after they tried to have sex using positions she found could help get a MALE child.

Holy mother of everything that's holy. I am addicted, truly and utterly dependant on this series. I'm a massive fan of Georgia Cates—from the moment that I read Indulge I have been hooked on this pretty lady's words and then when I read Dear Agony I just knew that there was no questioning that she has a special talent. She has a way of making her words so much more. I have gone through most of her repertoire and it is shamefully that I have to admit that I didn't actually pick up The Sin Trilogy until Unintended came up for review. I'm so disappointed with myself because I can see this being one of those series I keep going back to time and again. The Sin Trilogy itself centres around Sinclair and Bleu. These first three books are the foundation for the series which now includes two spin-offs— Endurance and Unintended. These two books revolve around Ellison and Jamie (Bleu's sister and Sin's best-mate and cousin) and Westlyn and Keiran (Jamie's sister and the leader of a rival syndicate). I'm getting so excited just thinking about these books that it's quite possible that none of this will make any logical sense. I'm really sorry for that, but you have to understand that once you start this series there's no going back. You will spend every waking moment wanting more and needing the next book. The anticipation that consumes you whilst waiting for the next book will probably give you heartburn and panic attacks. There is only one certain thing, one guarantee and that's that there will never be enough of this series. All the books are centred around The Fellowship. A Scottish syndicate of which Sinclair Breckenridge is heir to the leadership. Books 1-3 (A Necessary Sin, The Next Sin and One Last Sin) very much focus on Sinclair's (Sin) and Bleu's love story that becomes intricately tangled with his rise within the syndicate and her struggle as an outsider. I absolutely loved their story, it was sweet, tempestuous and full of the unexpected. Both of the cliffhangers between the books left me on tenterhooks and filled with trepidation. I have to admit that both times I was taken aback by them. I'm not saying that I didn't see them coming, well— the end of A Necessary Sin left me a little bug eyed, I was expecting something a little different. I found myself navigating from one book to the next without a breathing break.  Ms. Cates did something to me that left me hanging on her every precious and brilliant word. She had me second guessing my every thought and expectation. There were certain moments when I expected certain big, life changing surprises and I was left slack jawed when something that wasn't even an inkling in my mind happened. This is very much something that I loved about this series. Expecting the unexpected didn't prepare me in any way for all the twists and turns that Sin's and Bleu's journey took. You have this gorgeous element of instant attraction that flourishes into a life changing compulsion and then morphs into brilliant and blinding love. Saying that, there isn't a moment where either Sin or Bleu bury their heads in the sand about what their relationship means, and what made me really love them was that despite the outlook being bleary, they were both determined to push one another so that they could deliver on every promise that they had of being monumental. This series has such a knack for taking raw and flawed characters and polishing them not so that all the flaws are erased, but so that they are magnified and in doing so they become the perfectly imperfect characters that worm their way into your heart and set-up fort. These characters' flaws are what makes them strong and defined... grounded even. But this isn't just a character development thing. The plot itself is so raw and the whole criminal organisation element is so wrong. Well, it should be, but you find yourself becoming a part of that family and rooting for them. Georgia Cates has really done something special with these characters. They make you see the beauty in the ugly. They are a beacon of hope in a dark and sinister world. And, just when you think you've seen it all, felt it all, experienced it all in the The Sin Trilogy, the standalones take it all to whole new level. I don't now how she managed to breath new life into Ellison and Jamie's story. By all means Endurance should in many ways be a clone of Sin's and Bleu's story, but Ms. Cates completely surprised me with fresh twists and a plot that is singular and in itself unforgettable and awing...majestic. After everything that happens in the first three books and how it impacts both Jamie and Elli— their involvement in each others' circumstance through Sin and Bleu by all means should dim their attraction, put a spanner in the works so to say, but if anything it almost makes their connection stronger even if the bridge between them is at times precarious. I have to admit that I love these two. Not only because it gives the whole Doctor and Nurse play a whole new meaning for me, but because they have this splendid and momentous story.  Again, when it came to Unintended I was completely blown out of the water.  Again, this story is very fitting with Sin and Bleu's own, however somehow Georgia Cates managed to weave some delicious cheese into the romance which coupled with a brute and super alpha hero and his innocent and yielding heroine made this book unputdownable. This plot is just fabulous, as Shaggy would say— boombastic fantastic! I loved that Wes is in many ways the polar opposite to Bleu and Ellison. You can tell that she has been raised in the syndicate lifestyle where traditionally women are submissive, however that doesn't make her a doormat. I like that when the poop hits the fan she is more than happy get her spade and dig herself out of it. At the same time I love that it doesn't get in the way of Kieran saving her. This is very much a damsel in distress and dark knight in a bulletproof vest romance... I love that despite Kieran's role as assassin does't compromise his conscience. To be honest I loved this about Sin. He was the ruthless leader that still had a conscience. I know I'm not a spoiler girl, but there was one part of this book that still has me laughing and cringing at the same time. I think nI actually blushed when Torri, Wes' mother, walks in on a bit of cowgirl action. It actually made me laugh so hard I may have peed myself a little! All in all, The Sin series is very much an epic, monumental read. It has all the murkiness and volatility of a mafia romance whilst at the same time having that familial aspect that MC romances possess. Just to be clear this is NOT an MC romance, far from it, it just has an element of the feels that you get from one. Also, can I just say that I'm not really a massive Scottish accent fan, but these men REALLY did it for me. I feel like I need to pay Scotland a proper visit just to make sure that I haven't been overlooking the Scott's men all this time because holly hell they are in a league of their own! I never thought I'd say this, I hope that my Englishness doesn't take a hit, but if it does... I'll take it! Anywho, back to the series— if there is one thing that I want to convey here it's that this is one of those series that you simply HAVE to read. Not just because the plots are phenomenal, but because the characters are inescapable, unforgettable and delicious. I really cannot wait for Lorna and Leith's story in Redemption, and I also really, really...REALLY want Shaw's story. Oh, and Evanna's! Basically, I just never EVER want this series to end!

    I devoured the entire Sin series in three days. I fell in love with the world, with the people, with the danger. It’s a superb series, and I enjoyed every second I spent reading it. Unintended is the fifth book in the series and can be read as a standalone, should you choose. I highly suggest reading the entire series, however, as it will give you a better understanding of the world in which Westlyn and Kieran reside.

I highly suggest reading the entire series, however, as it will give you a better understanding of the world in which Westlyn and Kieran reside. After reading Endurance and the first couple of chapters of Unintended, I was pretty sure Kieran would NEVER be able to win me over. I was deeply mistaken. The man was kind and caring and everything that Westlyn needed. Kieran portrayed a hard exterior, but it was quickly apparent it was a persona he’d explicitly honed for dealing with situations that were outside of his own wants needs. Underneath all that badassery, he was a loving, considerate person and it was that side of him had won both Westlyn and me over. Westlyn surprised me in this book. I had a precise idea of who she was, based on how the other people in her life saw her, but she was so much more than I expected. She wasn’t the demure wallflower I had assumed. She was strong, fiercely loyal, and fearless. The girl rivaled some of the strongest female characters I’ve read, and I admired her for knowing her worth and never letting anyone give her any less than she deserved. I found myself constantly in awe of how wonderful a person Westlyn was when she had such horrendous people for parents. The circumstances under which Kieran and Westlyn started their relationship were far less than ideal, but I felt like the acute situation they found themselves in was paramount for them figuring out what they both wanted and, frankly, needed in their lives. Watching what had happened between Westlyn and Kieran through other people eyes in Endurance was far different than what they were actually experiencing. It was a very tricky thing Georgia Cates did in giving us that perspective of them before we knew anything that was truly going on with them. I appreciated the misdirection and how it served to demonstrate that things are rarely what they appear to be from the outside. The only wish I have for Unintended is that there would have been more. There was a time lapse of a few months near the end of the book that I would have loved to have seen on page. I feel like seeing how both Kieran and Westlyn recovered during that time would have been incredibly special. Georgia Cates has crafted a fascinating and dynamic world in the Sin series. I love the intricacies of Scottish mafia she has developed and how each brotherhood has its own traditions and practices. There are several characters we’ve met already that I hope to hear more from; Leith and Lorna are at the top of that list, of course, but I’d also like to see Mitch and Shaw’s story, and I’m highly intrigued by the leaf Thane and Isobel seem to have turned in their relationship. I’m sure I could continue reading new books in this series for a long time to come.

    Reflections of a Book Geek

    Unintended 5 Stars I came across Georgia Cates by fluke when I was attending my first signing in Dublin 2014, I read every author who was attending and luckily came across Georgia’s Beauty series! I was hooked on her work instantly. I have said in the previous books of this series that it’s not something I would have typically went for but because it was by the lovely Georgia I felt like I needed to give them a chance. Like all the other books in this series Unintended had me hooked instantly and Unintended 5 Stars I came across Georgia Cates by fluke when I was attending my first signing in Dublin 2014, I read every author who was attending and luckily came across Georgia’s Beauty series! I was hooked on her work instantly. I have said in the previous books of this series that it’s not something I would have typically went for but because it was by the lovely Georgia I felt like I needed to give them a chance. Like all the other books in this series Unintended had me hooked instantly and I was pulled straight into the story from the very beginning! I was excited to see that this was Westlyn’s story, I was curious about her after reading bits and pieces where she has been involved in the previous books and this book went so far above what I expected from it! Wes is Jamie’s baby sister and while she was born into the Fellowship she wants more from life than to marry someone she doesn’t love! Westlyn was such a strong character that I felt an instant connection with her, even when she was afraid she kept up the perfect facade and never let anyone see how deeply affected she was! Kieran is the new heir to The Order and after growing up in The Syndicate he knows what his role is. When he is tasked with marrying one of The Fellowship he is anything but happy. While his actions in the beginning of this book weren’t the most noble once he actually got to know a little about Wes he was a completely different person! I loved Kieran and the fact that he kept his softness in check unless he was with Wes was such a lovely thing to witness. Getting to catch up with some of our other favourite characters in this series is a real bonus in my opinion! That’s one of the many reasons I love reading a series, the fact that we get to see how the relationships between last characters have developed! This book had me so enthralled with the story that I couldn’t put it down even for a short period of time! I couldn’t get enough of Kieran and Westlyn and they quickly became my favourite couple of this series!! I’m really hoping this isn’t the last we see of The Fellowship and The Order because as different as they are from my normal reads they are so addictive! Georgia’s writing is to me nearly flawless, I love the fact that I get sucked so deeply into these stories that I feel like I’m a part of them. This series has a special place in my heart but this book especially!!
