Bee makes a logical choice; it's not what she wants, but
what she feels she must do. While getting intimate with
Nicolas, in whom she sees as the answer to her problems,
she reluctantly but deliberately ignores her phone,
knowing full well that it's Hawke. Her billionaire seems
a bit distracted; yet her tattooed biker is always there
for her, cares about her, but still she thinks he cannot
give her the financial security she craves so
The dreaded luncheon with Lona Lamarre went badly, and
Bee is publicly humiliated; her life is in tatters. All
her hopes for a better future have been shattered by a
few hurtful words. She fears she might not belong to the
world she aspires to, and yet a third man may just have
snuck into her life. She has more beautiful things than
she's ever had, and when she receives yet another reward
for some naughty behaviour, this time it's with promises
of more... Her façade has started to crumble and the
stability she so needs seems to be evading her.
SINFUL REWARDS 5 is just about halfway through the 12-
instalment series, and Bee is at a crossroads. Ms. Sax
does a tremendous job at expressing the shadows of doubt
that hover over Bee's future and in showing the dichotomy
between who Bee is and how she wants to be, or at least
appear to be. Plato, in fact, came to mind in this
episode: Bee is so mindful of appearances, of how others
perceive her, that she's on the verge of losing her true
self and making the dreaded mistakes she so fervently
hopes to avoid.
Ms. Sax's luminous prose highlights the happy times in
Bee's life; how perfectly lovely and radiant are those
moments of lightness when Bee revels in the simple joy of
being alive, doing what she wants; when she accepts who
she is and forgets her responsibilities and her duty.
SINFUL REWARDS 5 is a beautiful, touching, tender book; I
really experienced Bee's pain and conflict, and rejoiced
when she was free and happy. How wonderful when an author
infuses a character with so much life, that she is able
to make us care so much about a fictional character that
we wish we could hug Bee and console her. Superb!
Nicolas Rainer, Chicago’s most sought-after billionaire
bachelor, has finally decided what he wants, and that’s
Carter in his arms, forever. He shows up unannounced on
doorstep and kisses her until her toes curl and her body
Nicolas wasn’t the sexy man Bee expected to see this
morning. Hawke Masters, her tattooed former marine, is
riding his customized chopper toward the condo building,
anticipating an equally mind-meltingly erotic encounter.
Both men want her with a thrilling intensity. Neither her
billionaire nor her biker wishes to share her affections.
