Georgia Cates delivers another great, dark-ish, intriguing mafia tale in “The Sin Trilogy” series. Unlike the previous installment in the series, “Endurance” focuses on another characters, Jamie and Ellison, whom we previously met before and unlike the previous three installments, it can be read as a standalone. “Endurance” was intriguing for the most part, romantic, passionate, fast pace and overall I enjoyed it.
Ellison moved to Scotland from America to be with her beloved sister after their father passed away. She knows with whom her sister chose to marry a year ago and she knows what the Fellowship is, the Scottish mafia. Even if her brother in low is the second in command to The Fellowship she’s happy for her sister because she knows she’s loved and respected by everyone in the organization. Ever since she decided to live in Scotland near her sister, Ellison decided to be part of the Scottish Mafia too. So, soon, Ellie’s brother in low will choose a husband for her, a mate who will have to love and protect her no matter what. But Ellie already find herself a husband. The only problem is he doesn’t seem to return her feelings or even notice her, obviously not to claim her either.
Jamie was raised in The Fellowship. He was raised as a killer, later becoming a doctor who serves the organization being loyal and respected. Jamie wants Ellison. He wants her as his best friend, as his future wife, as his mate, but he believes he can’t have her. Jamie knows the organization has many enemies and believes he can’t fully protect the woman he loves with all his heart, so he’s ready to sacrifice his happiness, their happiness, only for Ellison to be save. Will Jamie be able to give up Ellison or he will realize that he’s the perfect man for her, the only man who can protect her?
I really enjoyed this forth installment. It was filled with action, suspense and steam and I found it to be pretty great despite the fact I expected a little more. Personally, I would have preferred the story line to be a little different. The two main characters’ background were well developed which I enjoyed and their portrayal was pretty well done.
Both Jamie and Ellison were interesting, engaging character I liked from the very beginning. Ellie was a strong heroine and the perfect match for Jamie in every way. Our hero was also pretty great. He was sweet, caring, protective and at times a very endearing alpha-male. loved the connection and the chemistry between these two characters. The loyalty and devotion between them were really great and heartwarming and I love their honesty.
Overall, this was a great addition to the series. If you are looking for a mafia book filled with action, suspense and just a little bit of angst and drama, then this is the perfect book for you.
