I think this may be the first book I have had the chance to read by Sophie Jordan. I was impressed and I will certainly be on the lookout for more books by this talented author.
I quickly bonded with Gabriella Rossi because honestly she kind of reminds me to me. She's sweet, loving, strong-willed when needed, courageous even if she doesn't necessarily think she is, will do anything to help those she loves, and loyal. Her life has not been easy and she is still dealing with some of the rotten folks from her high school that made her high school experience anything but enjoyable.
Cruz Walsh, wow where do I start with this guy. He loves his family so much and would do ANYTHING for them. He was convicted of a crime he sure didn't commit and even after being proved innocent and released from prison, the mean folks of town are still trying to tear him down. This guy has such a big heart, he's strong, determined, loyal, and just one really awesome guy that got a bad deal.
I loved watching Cruz and Gabby get to know each other as adults. There are so darn many things that keep jumping into their path to keep them apart but the attraction is there, the feelings are strong, and even some of the family is approving. It's going to be a bumpy ride to get their relationship to a point of even possibly finding a happily ever after. They truly do make a great couple. With everything they have been through they sure do both deserve to find that happily ever after that's for sure.
I really enjoyed this book. I found Ms. Jordan to have a very nice writing style that quickly captured my attention from the first page and held on all the way to the end. The characters are charismatic, charming, and give you that feeling of you just found a new friend. The storyline was interesting and filled with plenty of drama and mystery to keep my fingers flipping those pages just as quickly as I could while sitting on the edge of my seat wondering what in the world could possibly happen next.
This is the last book in the Devil's Rock series. Ms. Jordan has done a fabulous job of making it a stand alone. I didn't feel like I was missing any important details that would distract from my enjoyment of the book. However, after reading this book I know I sure wouldn't mind reading more of her work.
I was given the opportunity to read this incredible book and it is my pleasure to share my thoughts with you.

About Beautiful Sinner:
Most women would be scared, but Gabriella’s only worried about resisting Cruz Walsh, who’s even hotter than he was back in high school. Cruz was wrongly accused of the high-profile crime for which he was imprisoned; Gabriella’s desperate for the scoop that will get her career off the ground and get her out of Sweet Hill, where everyone still remembers her as “Flabby Gabby.” Being stuck in a supply closet with Cruz is the perfect opportunity to land an interview. What Bri doesn’t count on is Cruz taking “up-close and personal” to a whole new level.
If there’s a silver lining to the hell Cruz went through, it’s that losing his freedom put everything in perspective. Maybe starting over someplace new would be easier, but after years locked up, Cruz values his family—and his true friends—more than ever. So he’s back home, facing the gossip, dodging reporters . . . and face-to-face with Gabriella Rossi. They’ve both changed: Bri wants a story and Cruz just wants her. Another thing he’s learned? Don’t let a good thing slip away.
