Stronger Than Sin by Caridad Pineiro review/giveaway
It's been six months since Liliana Carrera helped her brother rescue Caterina Shaw from Wardwell Laboratories, a group of fringe scientists experimenting on human beings. Now, Liliana--with funding from the FBI--has set up a new facility to continue testing the inhibitor complex, a cure for the patients of Wardwell. What's even better is the FBI has managed to recover another of the patients, Jesse Bradford.
When Jesse arrives at Liliana's facility, he has been drugged and displays violent erratic behavior. As Liliana helps him detox, Jesse demonstrates strange powers--superhuman strength and the ability to heal quickly.
Despite their growing attraction, Jesse is secretive and Liliana remains fearful of him. Eventually he admits that Wardwell scientists threatening his sister's life in order to maintain control over him and his powers. As they try to locate her, they begin to suspect that the scientists may have corrupted the FBI. Unless they can discover Wardwell's master plan soon, Jesse's sister, the other patients, and an unknown number of innocent people, will pay the price.
(from the publisher)
This is my first time reading a novel by Caridad Pineiro and I have to say that I was very impressed. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed “Stronger Than Sin”, and even though this novel is the second in a series it reads pretty much as a stand alone. Although it does refer to the events of the first book, I did not feel as though it took away from this story, but readers be warned once you have read “Stronger Than Sin”, you will want to read the first part “Sins Of The Flesh”.
Overall would I read this book again? Defiantly. Especially after I read the first one.
What to look forward to: Chapter 38 sets up the next book nicely, and I cannot wait to read it once it’s out.
