Review: Sinful Intentions by Amy Redwood

A jilted bride, a wolfishly sexy stranger, one sinful attraction under New Zealand's sun. When Katherine finds out her fiance cheated on her, her heart is bruised. With a mission to get her life back on track, she takes the first flight to Auckland, New Zealand. And bumps heads with a sexy stranger. Their attraction is instant, powerful and undeniable. Taking a vacation from being a good girl, she succumbs to this sinful stranger who pushes the limits of her sexual needs as he explores every inch of her body. No strings of course. Trent seduces a bed, at the beach, in a truck, against the wall...until the wolf within him lifts its head and pays attention. Suddenly, after a tiny bite, it's everything but no-strings.

Katherine leaves New York for New Zealand after discovering her fiancé had cheated on her at his bachelor party. When she arrives she meets a man that makes her forget all about her ex and focus on all the naughty things they can do together.

I enjoyed this book, more toward the end, but I am on the fence about this relationship. When Katherine meets Trent she is attracted to him and sleeps with him assuming that it will be a one night stand. She wants to get even with her ex since he slept with someone else but she isn’t really the one night stand kind of person. When Kat and Trent meet again later they always end up having sex. I didn’t like how Trent would be such a jerk. It often felt like he was taking advantage of her and he even says that he is at one point. Their relationship is almost strictly sexual until he marks her one time in the heat of the moment. Yes, he’s a shifter but that doesn’t have hardly anything to do with the story as a whole.

I would have liked to see more love and caring between Kat and Trent. There is a lot of emotion; desire, lust, anger, fear. But not much love. We don’t see a softer side of Trent till almost the end of the book when he comes clean to Kat and she basically forces him to confront their relationship. I think if we had seen more of his nice side I would feel more connected to him but since he was mostly a jerk, I didn’t feel all that invested in him until the end.

I did like the epilogue and the glimpse we get of their future. It was nice to see Trent showing that soft side but also having that little bit of his bad boy self in there that made me really wish we had seen more of that.
