Sinful Rewards 12 by Cynthia Sax Blog Tour #5star #review #Giveaway


The thrilling conclusion to the Billionaires and Bikers series!

One tiny mistake turns Bee Carter's worst fears into a terrifying reality. She knows she isn't alone. The sexy, honorable man she adores stands by her side, willing to sacrifice his freedom to ease her concerns.

But she yearns for more than he is offering. She wants a partner who will love her as fiercely as she loves him, who will say the words and mean them, and someone who will choose her because this is what he desires more than anything else, not merely out of a misguided sense of duty.

Will saying no to the man she loves earn Bee unbearable heartache or will she finally get the forever she craves?

I have to admit that I was not looking forward to this book. I just wasn't ready for Bea and Hawke's story to be over. I'm not ready to let go of the characters that I have come to love. Even after reading this final book, I'm not ready to let them go, which is why I plan on re-reading the series now that I have all the books and I can read it uninterrupted. 

Bea still drove me nuts even though she has grown so much throughout the series. She still referred to Nicholas as a billionaire, telling me she is still hung up on his money.  At least she's figured out Hawke is the man for her, that he's the one that meets all of her needs. She has everything, but then she lets her insecurities get the best of her and she almost loses it all. 

Hawke needs to prove to Bea, one last time, how much she means to him, a grand gesture. He's been so patient with her, so understanding. he knows she needs to overcome her past demons in order to move on. He does some amazing things to help her move on. 

Nicholas is my favorite supporting character, I'd love to know more about him...maybe a spin-off (Hint, Hint). He's a little different, but there is a very caring man underneath it all. 

You definitely need to read all the other 11 installments before staring this one. It is written from Bea's point of view. There's lots of hot sex (sigh) and no violence. There in no cliffhanger ending. 

The doorbell rings and a swell of joy crashes over me, a marked contrast to my previous emptiness. Hawke hasn’t forgotten my reward. He continues to care for me. I rush to the door and swing it open.

Nicolas stands in the hallway, a sheepish smile on his beautiful face, and my small burst of joy dissipates, replaced by the dreaded malaise. He’s handsome, the lights shining on his black wavy hair, tanned skin, dark eyes. He’s immaculately dressed in a gray suit, white shirt, pink tie. He’s carrying ice cream, a small tub of Heavenly Hash cradled in his perfectly manicured fingers.

But he’s not Hawke. He’s not the man I love, the only person I want to see.

“Don’t look at me like that, Bee.” Nicolas pushes his way into the condo. “I had that situation with the New York build last night. There will be fancy events in the future.” He holds up the tub. “I brought ice cream.”

I summon a smile. “You forgot about me.” I take the ice cream from the dashing billionaire. “What do those articles I sent you say about forgetting friends?”

Nicolas grimaces. “You knew I was a bad friend.” He walks with me to the kitchen, smelling of expensive cologne and wealth.

“You’re not a bad friend.” I set two bowls and two spoons on the counter. “You’re a terrible friend.” I open the tub of ice cream.

The real estate developer settles his long lean body on a bar stool and dips a spoon in the container. “You’re not giving up on me, are you?” The lines carved between his perfect eyebrows belie his casual tone.

“I’d never give up on you.” I knock his sucked-clean spoon away and huddle over the tub, protecting the ice cream from impatient-billionaire-induced contamination. “Hawke doesn’t love me,” I blurt, needing to voice this, to share this with someone.

“He said that?” Nicolas steals a spoonful of ice cream from the bowl I’m filling.

“No.” I frown, scooping as fast as I can. “But he’s never said he loves me, either.” I push Nicolas’s bowl toward him.

His eyes sparkle. “I’ve never said I love ice cream.” He shovels the sweet treat into his mouth with a boyish glee. “But I do. Very much.” His lips curl upward. “The name of this flavor is perfect. It is heavenly.”

“Hawke doesn’t love me,” I repeat stubbornly, dishing out a smaller portion for myself.

“A good friend would agree with you.” Nicolas’s head is bent over his ice cream.

“You’re not a good friend.” I place the tub in the freezer compartment of the fridge. “What would you do?”

“I’d tell you that neither of you are acting rationally, that if craziness is a sign of love, Hawke has it much worse than you.” Nicolas licks his spoon. “He guards you like you’re the last piece of prime real estate on the planet. I’m taking my life into my hands by simply eating ice cream with you.”
