Eric and Ellison Gant better known as Sin and Saint were opposite sides of the same coin. They epitomized the nicknames given to them by their friends in the band Executioners. One thing Sin and Saint did well was fight and being inseparable means they have a lot of disagreements, but one thing they agree on is Sheriff Camden Pelter was theirs. The older, stoic man didn’t agree, yet they were determined to change his mind.
Camden Pelter had the daunting job of turning the Powers Sheriff Department around. The residents of the Georgia town didn’t have much faith or respect in the Deputies serving them. That’s where he came in and he was determined to do his job. That was easier said than done with two annoying brothers Sin and Saint who dogged his every step. No way in hell was he getting mixed up in the chaos that were the Gant Twins. Now if only if he could get them to listen and realize they didn’t have a chance of changing his mind.
I was really looking forward to Sin and Saint and to finally seeing the twins get their man but sadly I think it ended up being my least favourite of the series. I’m not even sure why but the relationship between the three men felt stilted and awkward. Daddy play doesn’t bother me at all but it felt forced and as though it didn’t belong – it just happened without any discussion or mention and for a pair of virtual sexual virgins all of a sudden they were introducing kink as if they had been playing for years.
All throughout the book the twins are quite needy and wait for all their cues from Camden until the end when they have to raise hell – fly and land in amongst a gun fight and rescue their Sheriff and they do it all without blinking – at this point I didn’t recognise the two needy and very unconfident men I had just been reading about.
I’m glad the guys got their man as it’s been a long time coming but I didn’t feel invested in their relationship and thought the ending was unrealistic. Camden was supposed to be the mature one out of the three yet he was the one who behaved like a douche at the end when the twins reverted back to their norm after their daring rescue. I finished the story feeling as though I didn’t know any of the characters any better than I did at the start of the book but the dynamic of their relationship certainly seemed to work for all those involved.
