SUNNY - ARC BOOK REVIEW "Sinful Deception" by Joan Swan

In need of fast cash to help her brother sneak into the US, Tova Sorenson takes a job as a sexcam operator, sparking an unlikely friendship with her very first customer. When Marcus Lucero's border patrol teammate suggests a sexcam site for female companionship without heartache, Marcus figures he's got nothing to lose.

While danger from Tova's dark side brings them together in the flesh where their chemistry burns hotter than hell, it also exposes their divergent loyalties which could end not only their desires, but their lives.

This is the perfect little novella for its length, action, suspense, romance and creative premise.  Sinful Deception is a part of Joan Swan's Covert Affairs series.  As a fan of the previous books, I thought I might enjoy this book, but I'm pleased to say I enjoyed it a lot. 

The premise of this story is unique. Tova Sorenson is a hard working, determined, smart student attending college in the United States.  She is looking to earn as much money as she can so that she can help her family in Mexico.  A friend convinces her to try to become a sexcam operator.  In her very first outing she is contacted by Marcus Lucero, a Border Patrol agent who is just on the verge of burning out. Though the book is not erotica, it is a bit naughty.  This angle gave it a little edge. 

I don't know how much of the story is believable, but I WANT it to be believable.  It is not difficult to root for Tova.  She is a good girl finding herself in an untenable position of having to support and save her family.  It is nice to see a good-guy support and protect her. Marcus has just enough alpha to make him heroic without being over the top.  

For a romantic suspense, it has all the right ingredients and there are keep-you-on-the-edge-of-your-seat moments.  What a fun, fun read. Plus extra points, for mentioning UCSD and the Tritons!

Thank you to Cygnet Books, the author and Netgalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
