Book Review: 'His Revenge' by Roxy Sinclaire
New York author Roxy Sinclaire works in customer relations in New York City but her passion is writing – and about romance stories whose ‘antagonists’ are the men she hates to love, and loves to hate: the Bad Boys. Roxy writes with a swift pen, not wasting the reader’s time with excess storyline or profound character development. She knows the tropes she molds into her erotica situations and lets the storyline fly from there, bad boys – or bad girls (interchangeable is some ways) are the subjects of this little novel.
Her latest series - the Omerta Series: a Dark Mafia Romance – is now up to Book 4 and like the first three books, Roxy is in her prime on a subject she understands well and offers her reader some insights into the darker side to romance and passion.
Roxy can even make a synopsis seductive: ‘‘I will avenge my family by killing his, but spare his fine daughter for myself…I just found out that the man who raised me isn’t my real father. He was hired by the head of the mafia, Quinn, to kill my family. But he kept me alive all these years, like his own son. I’m going to take Quinn’s family down the same he did to mine. One by one. After seeing his daughter Teagan, I questioned what I was going to do. Never have I seen a woman as beautiful as her. She came to my bed that night. Her body was better than chocolate. I knew I needed her help. As luck of the Irish would have it, convincing her wouldn’t be too hard. But then I found out she was carrying my baby. I don’t know if I can avenge my family alone. Not with her being the mother of my child. Or its grandfather, my major target. But when I want something, I take it. No compromises.’
Ah, the games her characters play. And during the other many factors of the story there is room for erotica – in hefty doses. This is her twenty-second Bad Boys book and she’s well on her path upwards…Grady Harp, May 17
