Review: Born to Sin by AL Simpson


Title: Born to Sin

Author: A.L. Simpson

Series: Born Series




I was born to an alcoholic mother and alcoholic, drug dealing father. Not a good start to life for a young boy. I was born to sin.
I’ve lied, cheated, assaulted, been an adulterer and stolen. It’s how one survives the ‘hood’. I have a reputation for being the ‘bad boy’, the fuck ’em and leave ’em type. I have never spent the night with a woman and I have never brought a woman home. We ‘play’ at her place and as soon as I’m done, I leave.
After fleeing my home at the age of thirteen and living on the streets – an option I found better than being with my parents, my life is turned around by an elderly lady.
I educate myself, become an award winning chef and return to the ‘hood where I rent an apartment. I love and care about no-one and nothing except my Harley Motorcycle. It’s here I met Jonesy and he takes my life in a whole new direction. Along with Wade, a fellow chef and the only person I can trust, the pair teach me how to love. Not only myself, but others.


I’m a wealthy Restaurateur thanks to an inheritance I received when my father passed.
I live in a penthouse apartment in the ‘rich’ part of the city.
Being pampered and spoiled all my life has turned me into a woman who sees something she wants and, like a dog with a bone, I won’t let go until it’s mine. I’m a winner. I ALWAYS win.
I don’t have relationships with men. One night stands suit me just fine. I can’t trust it’s me they want and not my money.
I meet Hamish by chance when I’m on the hunt for a new Head Chef. He treats me like I’m not worth a second thought. I’ve never been treated this way and I decide at that moment, I will make Hamish mine.

Hamish has no interest in the pampered Blossom but for some reason she gets under his skin.
Then, something happens that makes him realize, he has fallen in love. Will it be too late? Will tragedy strike before he can hold her in his arms and confess his true feelings?

Suitable for 18+ Strong language, Sex scenes and M/M Scene

A Beautifully Crafted Story

Wow, I loved Hamish and Blossoms story. AL Simpson most certainly knows how to write a super sexy scene with plenty of heat and even better, one full of love.

For a bad boy from the hood, Hamish lacks confidence and self-respect but the people in his life show him how to love by simply loving him unconditionally. The inclusion of the child, Steve, and his connection with Hamish, adds another layer to the fold and I quite enjoyed getting to know Hamish through his love for this kid.

There is some M/M love in this book too which ticks another box for me! All round, this is a touching story, with quite a lot happening though the main message of love and acceptance is loud and clear. I read it in one sitting and I really enjoyed seeing how it all came together for each of the characters. I look forward to Wade’s story next.
