Publisher's Summary

One contract. Two signatures. A marriage of inconvenience.

Gypsy

Lucian West isn’t husband material. He's a stiff in a suit. Granted a hot one, but still. He’s one of the most hated men in America. An arrogant asshole. A ruthless attorney. 

He gets what he wants in the courtroom, and outside of it. 

Now, he wants me. 

For reasons I can’t fathom, he’s determined to make me his wife. 

He makes it clear he’s not above blackmailing me to put a ring on my finger. 

The man might be richer than sin with devilish good looks, but hell will freeze over before I ever give my heart to him.

***

Lucian

I don't do love. I don't even do relationships. 

But all of that changes when I stumble upon the tragic, beautiful woman confessing her sins in the dark of night. 

She’ s supposed to be nothing to me. Nothing but a wife. Her smart mouth drives me crazy. Her attitude brings out the beast in me. I want to protect her. I want to bring her to heel. I want to own her pretty lips. 

She belongs to me, she just doesn’t know it yet.  

I've already made her mine in name. Now it’s time to claim the rest of her. 

Explosive chemistry. Plenty of angst. Packed with emotion and dark themes. Confess is a standalone within the series and has a complete ending.

Soo good!!

I loved this book. The narrators - Aaron and Tracy - always work well together. This audible started out as a love/hate relationship that developed into something sweet, powerful, sad, emotional...it was so good. There is some suspense in the book and I can't wait to hear the story of Birdie and Ace. I love A. Zavarelli writings. Great job!

Struggling to finish this. Regret believing previews reviews. I think it's supposed to be shocking but just a bore.

Disappointed

It’s not bad, it’s just not great. Not much interaction between the two main characters, and no steam. If you want a super light romance with some suspense, you may like this. I thought I was getting a sexy love story. I won’t buy any more books in this series.

Dissapointing!

I adore this writer but this was a let down. I couldn't connect with these characters. If a character is going to develop feelings for their captor, it should develop naturally and over time. He called her "pet" for goodness sake. The twist was weird. I am just disappointed. The ending was a nice setup for book 2 and that was the best part of this book. I

Arron Shedlock is fantastic in this book! 🔥

I really enjoyed this story. It kept me intrigued and glued to my earbuds wondering what would happen next. Arron Shedlock has the perfect voice for this character and he read him so well, dark, sexy, and mysterious.
I had a little trouble w/ the way Tracy Marks read. It seemed like she purposefully put a lot of unnatural inflection in certain syllables while reading. Like she was trying to make the voice sound interesting or something, but instead it was distracting. I did end up getting used to it though and enjoyed the audio very much. This story was different than the stand I come across so often. And I really appreciated that. Listening to the next book now.

4.5 Captivating Stars!

Wow, what a great start to the Sin City Salvation series! Zavarelli captured my attention from the very first confession and it only built from there. Gypsy has been forced into a life of conning men out of money to support herself and her younger sister. They learned how to create these opportunities from a very young age. She will do whatever it takes to support and protect her sister. That is what Lucian, a powerful lawyer, is counting on when he blackmails Gypsy into marriage. This sets the stage for her hatred of Lucian, and her fierce desire to find a way of escape. But Lucian is an enigma to her. The more he forces her to do things, the more she discovers that all is not what it seems. Gypsy and Lucian butt heads at every turn, but as they do, they also teach each other how to live and how to love. This poignant and hauntingly beautiful story took my breath way with every twist and turn it took. The secrets that were slowly revealed, and the past that was coming back to threaten their very lives, left me wondering who I could trust.
Narrators Tracy Marks and Aaron Shedlock are phenomenal! They both brought out the range of emotions these character went through as they discovered and made peace with their demons, allowing us to see them with empathy and understanding. Marks and Shedlock compliment each other so perfectly, bringing this raw and poignant story to life and making it even better.

Great story with the perfect narrators.

I’m always a huge fan of A. Zavarelli’s work. I was beyond excited for this story’s release. Lucian and Gypsy have a perfectly imperfect connection that you can’t help but be sucked in to their world. Both narrators were perfect for their characters. Well read and perfectly performed. Highly recommended! 🙌🏼🔥

Amazing 🤩

Wow! Really fantastic, I truly enjoyed this book. A. Zavarelli does it once more with another great story.

The characters are well written, each of them will grab your attention from the very beginning, and not just the main ones, each of them were perfect. The story is also really well written, with twists and turns that you won't see coming and that made me cry at some point.

Gipsy, a con-artist, and Lucian a criminal defense lawyer, they ate so opposite, and yet so alike in some things, both of them with secrets of their own and with an armor that little by little will be coming down.

And lastly, the narrattion. When you see that Lacy Laurel and Aaron Shedlock are narrating, you cannot expect nothing but an extraordinary narrattion. They both were perfect for the story, their voices, tone, cadence, everything was great.

**I cannot wait for the second book to come out**

Rollercoaster

My feelings were all over the place with this book. On the positive side it really had me into it and grabbed my attention. I had a rough time with the clashes, thinking sometimes too far and had trouble liking the heroine in the beginning. But this rollercoaster was a good ride. Excellent narrators. Loved their portrayal of the characters.

Confess

Wow! This dark romance was quite the rollercoaster ride full of twists and turns. For me, I feel like this book needs a second listen just to fully comprehend everything that happened. I kept going back and forth on whether I liked the characters or I didn't like them. By the end, though, I loved them and can't wait to listen to the second book in the series. I think Tracy Marks and Aaron Shedlock both did a great job bringing this story to life.

Confess

This is a dark, rough, and emotional listen/read. Its the first in the trilogy so you don’t quite get your HEA yet. Although this is not my normal style book i would def read the next books to see how it ends. The performance by Scott Rider and Lacy Laurel was incredible.

Unexpected

This is a new to me author and a trope I don't usually go for.

I loved the twist on the marriage of convenience in terms of Gypsy being blackmailed into marriage and I love the way she expresses herself not just by giving as good as she gets verbally but things like dressing for a funeral for the wedding.

Zavarelli sows seeds regarding Lucian's health from very early on and I was feeling very smug because I just KNEW what was going to happen and how the book was going to end... except it didn't end... it kept going.

And the author did the one thing that I LOVE it when authors manage it (I grew up reading mystery and horror, so it doesn't happen very often and it's usually what makes me go to leave a review) - the author surprised me. and I don't mean "oh, wow, that was great" I mean "that blew my f*cking mind - how the hell did that happen?!?!?!?!"

I will definitely be seeking out more from the same author and you should definitely read.

HOWEVER. I didn't give 5* because I really would have appreciated a content warning on this one: Gypsy has a traumatic past and there is a flashback around halfway through the book. If you're a person that needs to skip, it's only a short scene, but it starts with a blue lace dress. It took me some breathing excercises, stopping reading for the day and some human interaction to come through that one

Sin City Salvation Book One

Sin City Salvation Book One.

Gypsy has been protecting her sister, Birdie, in the only way she knows how, until the proof of her mistakes are laid bare. Lucian shows her photos of both Gypsy and Birdie conning men out of their money. Now, Lucian has blackmailed Gypsy to become his wife by threatening to out Birdie to the police. Day by day, Gypsy begins to see Lucian the way the world never will, as a man who might be brutal, but only to protect those no one else will. However, Lucian is dealing with a past just as dark as Gypsy's. Will his hangups allow them to be happy, or will Gypsy escape his trap?

If you're looking for a story with characters possessing dark pasts, but finding each other anyway, this is the book for you!

Dang, What a ride!!!

There are no words. I enjoyed this story so much, but I can't put it into words.. This story was just so enjoyable to me. the ups and downs. I enjoyed Gypsy's character. Lucian was something else. The narration was amazing. I just freaking enjoyed this story. A. Zavarelli did such an awesome job.
