Sins That Bind Us, Madly Ever After #2 by E.M. Lindsey

"If only I had regrets." That's how this book ends, and I desperately need more.

From the blurb for Sins That Bind Us:

My name might be Alice, and this sure as hell isn’t wonderland, but everyone is definitely a little mad here.

A line was drawn, bets were placed, and the chips fell, leaving me in enemy territory. The only reason I can live with that is because this gamble allowed me to make my own choice.

As the only daughter of the Romano empire, I was always up for auction, but Kane made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. I might be exchanging one level of hell for another, but at least in this one, with Hades by my side and the other misfits in my bed, I can rule as queen. I can finally have power over the person who had made it clear my worth was only in what someone was willing to pay.

And then it all came crashing down. My father might not be clever, but sometimes he gets lucky, and the prison that had become my sanctuary is now under threat. Kane is missing, the rest of my men are frantic to find him, and I’m still being hounded by the life I left behind.

James, Ariel, Phoenix, and Kane might seem like the harbingers of both doom and happily ever afters, but something tells me there’s still so much more story left until our fairytale reaches The End.

The Sins That Bind Us is the second book in an MFMMM, modern fractured fairy tale trilogy that tells the story of how heroes and villains might not always be what they seem. It features MF, MMF, and MM scenes, and ends on a cliffhanger.

Angel's Review:

Sins That Bind Us is the second installment in the Madly Ever After series by EM Lindsey. I really enjoy getting to see the stories of these characters unfold, and the different elements coming to life.

The previous book left off on a cliffhanger and we get to figure out what happens in this book. 

EM knows how to write characters that you can't help but become invested in, even the characters who are a bit unethical. Diabolical, even... Vengeful.  

Honestly, I didn't know if I would enjoy this series and that's just because I don't typically read darker stories. I'm really glad I took the plunge and was able to receive copies of these books. 

I really enjoyed getting to know Kane, Ariel, Alice, James and Phoenix better in this story. We got to know more about their background and we learn more about what happened to them at the hands of Guido Romano's orders. The writing is phenomenal, as always. And the characters and background detail are off the charts. 

If you start this series, be warned you can't just read one, you have to start with the first book and read all three. You have to! Wanna know why? Cause EM leaves book one &two off on cliffhangers.  

I never thought I'd be a fan of dark romances, but EM's convinced me otherwise. I'm onto the third book in the series to find out what happens next for these characters. 

"Whatever we decide, it will be fucking poetic, and I hunger for that final moment between us all."
