Endurance by Georgia Cates
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Standalone - The Sin Trilogy #4
Release: November 11, 2016
Length: 218 pages

I'm a doctor. Mobster. Killer.
My hands are covered in filth. I don't have the right to touch anything as clean and pure as Ellison MacAllister.

I distance myself ... always remaining obscure, composed, restrained.
Careful to never allow my eyes to linger too long.
Careful to hide my interest.
Careful to keep my burning desire buried beneath the surface.

I do it for her--suffer in silence--because it's what is best for the woman I love.
And she has no idea.

She'll be initiated as a Fellowship member soon. One of my mafia brothers will go through endurance so he'll earn the right to claim her.
Make her his wife.
Kill. Me. Slowly.

I'm running out of time. Only a month remains before she's beyond my reach forever.
I want to taste her. Share sleepless nights. Ride out her storm.
I want to give her the kind of nights she will still feel between her legs the next morning.
I want us to share the kind of passion that forms on our skin and drips down to saturate the sheets.
Between the sweat and the moans and the messy hair, I want her to know how hard she's been loved.

To have her is to taint her.
I should stay away. But I won't. I can't.
I'm a selfish bastard.
A selfish bastard in love.

***Intended for readers ages 18+ due to sexual content, adult situations, and language.


Endurance is a STANDALONE novel. It is the first spinoff of The Fellowship world introduced in The Sin Trilogy: A Necessary Sin, The Next Sin, One Last Sin.

My Review

A fantabulous 4.5 star read!!

First off, do you know how hard I was laughing at the start of this book??? Elli was throwing out all of these innuendos and Jamie sat there like a block of ice. It was freaking hilarious!!! But you could tell that the tenuous hold he had on his control was about to snap and I was thrilled to able to bear witness to the ensuing chaos.

Georgia Cates creates magic. I'm serious. I haven't been disappointed yet. And for that, I'm so thankful. With this book, she's given us suspense, intrigue, subplots, drama, family and so much love. And in the end, once again, I was begging for more!

The writing was exceptional and I loved how fluid each transition between POVs was handled. The characters were very well-developed and had me excitedly rooting for their happily ever after. Shoot, I was trying to come up with plans to help them myself LOL! There was never a doubt as to the depth of love between Elli and Jamie. It was evident right from the start. And nothing, and no one, was going to stand in the way of that. Not even Jamie himself.

I'm wondering when the next book is coming out and how Jamie's sister, Wes, will achieve her own happy ending. She has allowed herself to be a pawn in the treaty with The Order and I can only imagine that her story will also be sinfully delicious and full of mayhem. I'll be anxiously waiting for it.

Recommended for those who love romantic suspense with a side of turmoil.
