When the sun disappeared, the world was cast in shadows, hiding the evil that lay in wait. When it was dark, I hunted. The shadows caressed my body as I did things I could never do in the light of day.
Eighteen-year-old Bree Bowen has spent her entire life training and working as one of her father’s assassins. Fear has kept her and her best friend, Wes, under her father’s thumb—until now.
When Wes takes matters into his own hands, securing Bree a new identity and a plane ticket to America, he gives her the one chance she’s been desperately seeking.
Learning to live a new life isn’t easy. Add in her new roommate, Reid, who just happens to be a stripper, and things start to get a little crazy. Falling for a man has never been part of her plan, but she can’t seem to stay away from Reid.
When Bree’s past comes crashing back into her life, secrets that she’s fought to keep hidden are revealed, and she’s forced to choose between Reid and the life she could have with him, or Wes, the one man who has always loved her unconditionally.
Regardless of her choice, she must learn the consequences of sin.
This book will be a standalone.

From the first page until the very end, I couldn’t put this book down. The Consequences of Sin is so different from anything else that K.A. Robinson has written, and it’s absolutely amazing.
Bree and Wes are best friends, and have been together since birth. They do everything together: school lessons, train, and fight. They just happen to be mafia children and trained assassins, so they also kill together. Bree is tired of the life, and feels a part of herself dying with each life that she takes. Wes will do anything for her, even make arrangements for her to move to another country so she can get the life that she deserves. They both know that once she leaves, they will never see each or talk to each other ever again. Knowing this, Wes confesses to Bree that he’s in love with her and has been for quite some time.
Bree is given a chance to start over and leave her old life behind, and she looks forward to what her new future may hold. She misses Wes fiercely, but soon finds friendship with her hot new roommate Reid. Reid is laid-back, carefree, sweet, and caring. Even though they have a few things in common, Bree knows that she can never fully open up to him about her past. She hates keeping things from him, but doesn’t want to reveal the darkness of her life before she met him.
As Bree and Reid get closer, the attraction that she feels for him continues to get stronger, and she soon realizes that he attracted to her as well. They decide that a relationship is worth pursuing. Things seem to be going well until Bree’s past catches up with her and threatens to destroy not only her future, but Reid’s as well. When she unexpectedly comes face to face with Wes again, she doesn’t see the eyes of the man who helped her escape. They are now cold when they look at her, and she instantly feels that he betrayed her. But things aren’t always as they seem.
K.A. Robinson does an amazing job of keeping you in suspense in this book, and has you wondering did Wes betray Bree? If given a choice, will she choose to be with Reid or Wes? A definite must-read. 5 stars.
