Sinner (Reed Security, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Sinner by Giulia Lagomarsino

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sinner is the first book in the Reed Security Series. It is preceded by the series For The Love Of A Good Woman, and it is recommended that the series be read in order, as characters from the first appear in the second.


I’ve been broken for six years. I only started leaving my house three years ago, but I waited too long and now I’m so screwed up that I can barely stand to be around other people without freaking out. When a handsome, strong man with gorgeous eyes comes to my rescue twice, my therapist suggests he become a therapy buddy of sorts to help me. His jovial personality sets me at ease and he really does start to help me heal, but my untrustworthy nature takes over and could ruin the best thing that has ever happened to me.


Everyone calls me Sinner because of my reputation with the ladies. I was in Special Forces until a few years ago and now I work for Reed Security. I love my job, but it’s hard on relationships, which is why I don’t try. Until her. Everyone sees her as damaged, but I see her spirit, her fight. I can’t seem to get enough of her, but when my relationship with her threatens my job, I’m forced to choose which I want more. I just hope I chose right. 


Love this series!!!

The Hero(s): Mark “Sinner” Sinn – former special forces, now works for Reed Security. He is a playboy who hasn’t been getting along with his boss Sebastian “Cap” Reed. Sinner is friends with Maggie, who is Cap’s woman and Cap is very possessive.

The heroine(s): Cara – six years ago she was kidnapped and held by a serial killer and now is suffering from severe social anxiety disorder. She is doing whatever it takes to get rid of her anxiety but right now nothing seems to be working.

The Love Story: Sinner and Cara meet at a restaurant where Cara is having an anxiety attack and when she passes out, Sinner is there to catch her.

I unconventionally started this series on Book 21, which is fine since most can be read as stand-alone books. Though I loved them so much I had always planned to start at the beginning. Sinner was one of the books I couldn’t wait to read since he is such a great character. The blurb in this book also says it would be best to read the For the love of a good woman series first since many of the characters are connected. I have read most of that series, but it was quite a while ago so I don’t remember much. However I didn’t feel like I was missing anything. That is one thing Giulia Lagomarsino is great at.

I liked both Sinner and Cara as characters and these books always have some sort of dangerous situation brought on by the nature of the work in the Security business. In this one, there was a woman, Vanessa Adams who was the daughter of a billionaire businessman who needed personal security. There is some sort of shady business deal with her father where the other party wants to get her and use her as leverage. Vanessa will be the heroine in a future book as she and Cazzo have some attraction between them.

Overall, this book was great. It wasn’t quite as funny as some of the later books, but it was certainly steamy. I love the supporting characters and the action in the book. The world building is great and the side story was interesting.
