{eARC Review} Sweet as Sin (Bad Habit #1) by J.T. Geissinger

Sweet as Sin (Bad Habit, #1)
Sweet as Sin (Bad Habit #1) by  
Twentysomething Kat Reid is loving life as an in-demand Hollywood makeup artist. She has absolutely no interest in rock ’n’ roll, but in order to pay the mortgage, she agrees to work on the set of a rock video for the world-famous rockers known as Bad Habit…which brings her face-to-face with Nico Nyx, lead singer of Bad Habit and Adonis in the flesh.
However, the fiercely independent Kat isn’t impressed by the hard-living, womanizing rock star. But when Nico’s model girlfriend shows up to the set drunk and Kat is tapped to replace her as the video’s sexy bride, her combustible chemistry with Nico suddenly threatens to consume the set. Nico feels it, too—and becomes determined to win Kat over, body and soul. Yet behind his rock god swagger, Nico hides a dark secret. Can he rock Kat’s world forever, or will he just break her heart?

{Rating} 4/5 - I really liked it!


Sweet as Sin is high on drama, emotion, unbreakable friendships, devastation, betrayal and passion.

I loved Kat's backbone. She stands up for people who can't stand up for themselves, and stands up for herself against people who are trying to pull her down. Nico is hot and intense, loyal and deep, with a filthy mouth and a backstory to break your heart. Both Kat and Nico feel things deeply, react quickly and emotionally, often making decisions they regret. They both struggle with trust, how to have a relationship in the public eye, and how to get to a happily ever after.

The supporting characters were awesome. I absolutely loved the relationship between Kat and her friends Grace and Chloe. They are the type of friends who comfort you but also tell you the hard truths even when you don't want to hear them. Oh, and Kenji? He is hilarious. I wish there had been more of him.

Things happen very fast in Sweet as Sin, the twisty-turny plot moves quickly, but also the relationship between Kat and Nico. All of the drama and action kept my attention and kept me turning the pages. There are also a couple of gasp out loud twists that I did not see coming. I can't wait to see what J.T. Geissinger has in store in the next installment of the Bad Habit series.

And just a note... I have an ARC and publishers usually do not like anyone quoting from ARCs but seriously, this book is sooo full of quotable moments. I wish I could share, but I can't, so go now and read Sweet as Sin.
