My Fallen Saint by J. Kenner

His touch is her sin. Her love is his salvation. My Fallen Saint by J. Kenner

His touch is her sin.
Her love is his salvation.

Charismatic. Confident. Powerful. Controlling.

A brilliant investor with a Midas touch, Devlin Saint turned a modest inherited fortune into billions, and now operates one of the world’s foremost international philanthropic organizations. He’s a man determined to help the underprivileged, to fight injustice, and to make the world a better place. And that, at least is true.

It’s not, however, the full truth.

Because Devlin Saint is a man with a dangerous secret. One he’ll do whatever it takes to protect. And when investigative reporter Ellie Holmes turns her attention to an unsolved murder, she finds herself caught in a web of intrigue and passion as Devlin draws her closer and closer. But as the intensity and sensuality of their relationship grows, so do Ellie’s suspicions. Until she is no longer certain if the heat between her and Devlin is real, or only a facade he constructed to hide his dark and twisted secrets.

Ellie really enjoys her job. She loves writing and getting into a story. When her uncle is murdered and she goes home to try and figure out why, she is confronted with a past that she thought was behind her. Ellie is trying to get her past and present to mesh, but it's proving more difficult.

Devlin is a mystery for most of this story. He has a past that nobody really knows about and he has a personality that is both alpha male and dangerous bully, all wrapped in a delicious package. His past has dictated who he became as an adult, but he never forgot the first love in his life either.

Ellie and Devlin have to navigate their current situation, learning whether or not they can trust each other, and with their growing attraction getting in the way, they will have obstacles, large and small, to fight against. This is a fantastic story with a lot of angst, sexiness, and alpha behavior. While it doesn't exactly end on a cliff hanger, there most definitely is more to the story and I can't wait to read it.

3.5 stars

I am a huge fan of J. Kenner, and so was delighted to get this first book in the series as soon as I could. There is always the danger with this kind of series that you know going in that there is no resolution, and often you end on more questions than answers. I have to say I am grateful that it did not end on the kind of cliffhanger that just takes your breath away – but rather a new mystery to solve.

Overall, I really enjoyed the plot, and the writing is, as always with Kenner, excellent. I read the story in no time at all, as I wanted to know what happened next, why, and to whom. That said, I found the backstory to why they knew each other sometimes made Ellie in particular seem very immature. I like that she is no simpering beauty, but a woman with a cop career behind her and now is an investigative journalist, but... I did find it difficult to believe that she had never done any of the digging that she does now, before. I am still confused by that. But I went with it, and we do get a plot-twisting tale with a very hot burgeoning romance spilling out at the sides.

I feel you need to read it, so I don't risk revealing the wrong detail, and I am sure that you will be as curious as I am as to how this will move forward in the next installment.

and in 2017 for Wicked Dirty in the same category. Her Demon Hunting Soccer Mom series (as Julie Kenner) is currently in development as a television show.
