The fifth instalment in the Hawke Family Series, Tainted Saints throws us straight back into the dark and mysterious mafia world of New Orleans. We’ve come to love the Hawke family and each time we get a new glimpse of their world I can feel the anticipation and excitement building. Tainted Saint was no disappointment and I loved learning more about Caroline and Saint. This is a great instalment to the series and another five star read!
During the previous book, Building Storm, I really became interested in Caroline’s character and learning more about her. She comes across as quiet and shy, so I was waiting for someone to bring her out of her shell. Queue Saint, and what a wonderful job he did. From their very first, secretive, meeting during a rather intimate party, the chemistry between them had the book on fire. My eyes couldn’t read quick enough to get to the next sexy scene as the two of them have a connection that is just so addictive. This book also has its fair share of drama, which is expected when it comes to the Hawkes. As usual, they can’t help but insert themselves into something dangerous, which is the very reason we love them so much.
Tainted Saint proves that series can continue to be just as good at book five as it was at book one and two. I love the Hawke family and I know so many other people do, too. I’m so excited for the next instalment; bring on Luca!
