A Little Bit Sinful by Adrienne Basso

A Little Bit Unexpected. . .

Eleanor Collins knows that her beautiful younger sister will have wealthy, powerful men falling at her feet in her first London season. But Eleanor is surprised to discover that one man's attentions are utterly focused on her.

A Little Bit Forbidden. . .

As delicious as Sebastian Dodd, Viscount Benton, finds the eldest Collins daughter, his true motive is darker than mere seduction. Until he has avenged his mother's death, he will be unable to think of anything else. Or so he believes, until he takes his first taste of Eleanor's inviting lips, and finds his mind--and his body--utterly consumed. . .


This is a stand alone book but it appears that it is linked in with many other of Adrienne Basso's books. I would imagine that Sebastian appeared in the book that featured his best friend which is the one before this one (How to Seduce a Sinner). I haven't read that book and although this one seemed to stand alone I think I would have had a better grip on the characters, especially the secondary characters, if I had read the previous one first.

The book itself was a good read. I was interested and at no time did I get bored or not want to continue with the story. Both Eleanor and Sebastian were likeable characters and I liked their story and interactions. However, neither they nor the story were particularly memorable and they also didn't have much depth which left the whole story seriously lacking in emotion. This really made it difficult to invest in the characters and I didn't fall in love with them or really believe that they fell in love with each other.

This book did hold my interest so it's a little disappointing that I feel I can only give it 3 stars. I'll give Adrienne Basso another read because I liked her writing style but this book did little for me, I'm afraid.
