Sin & Chocolate (Demigod of San Francisco, #1) by K.F. Breene

Sin & Chocolate (Demigod of San Francisco, #1)

Some people are ordained for greatness… Those people usually have a lot of drama in their life. Drama I happily do without. I live in a forgotten corner of nowhere for a reason: there is safety in anonymity. I have enough problems just trying to get by. But when Kieran, a sinfully sexy demigod at the pinnacle of power, crashes into my life, suddenly my whole world is turned upside down. He’s harboring a deadly secret, one that could destroy a...

    Let me say this first, I love Ms. Breene’s other books.But this one? Uhm..How to explain it, if you love fantasy or epic fantasy story. You probably know they have tons of pages! Average between 600 - 1000 pages each book.And the first 100 - 200 pages, usually very annoying because the author tried to introduce so many characters and story setting in it, you just put up with it and continue to read because you knew is going to get better later ...

    This has some fantastic characters who grow on you from the start. Lexie is trapped in a world occupied by magicals and non-magicals, but has a useless magical talent, so she lives in poverty. She has two adopted teenagers, one of whom is jaded, the other who is very sick and needs a constant supply of medicine they can’t afford. After a slow-burn set up at the start, we start to discover more about Lexie’s powers and why they are of keen int...

    In a world that's split between people who have magic and those that don't there is a lot of distrust between the two groups and those who fall between the cracks struggle to survive. Alexis has magic but her ability to see and talk to ghosts isn't really a money maker so she works whatever odd job she can find to make ends meet. It doesn't help that she has two teenage wards to take care of, Mordecai, who is a shapeshifter with a serious illness...

    The following is 💯 me ranting & I’ll likely stop once I get my refund. The negative:Egregious behavior. I hate it when authors substitute cussing with ridiculous phrases like “biscuit trucker” 🤨 Really either you commit & curse or you don’t, cutesy phrases like that are childish & pointless. Barely any romance. Kids are involved (2 teenagers). Hard pass. The positive:Only thing marginally appealing is the magical society/🌎. 1 Sta...

    This book was a welcomed surprise because its is t feel like the same old same old. Sure it had shifters, but the characters felt new, the plot was different and that was enough to keep me engaged.Alexis was a young woman caring for two foster kids, Daisy and Mordecai, when she almost got run over by Kieran, a demigod. Lexie was busy trying to find a blanket as well as earn a living to take care of her wards. Mordecai was sick and Daisy was just ...

    What i loved!!!!!!The world building and the different types of beings and the jurisdiction they lived under it all felt very Kate Daniels, but with a unique spin on things.....I loved Alexis and the way she loves and protects her wards... she comes across more of a big sister but they are her weakness and she would do anything for them.The plot line was intricate and so interesting...Book is definitely a 4.5.....The book Unfurls as Alexis and Ke...

    4.25 StarsWell, this book was a surprise. I’ve seen this author on the Amazon list for some time, but I couldn’t get into her previous series. So I thought to try this one.First off, this is a slow-burn book, (view spoiler)[so far no sex (hide spoiler)] so if you are looking for a steamy read, this book isn’t for you. Also, there’s a lot of build-up and world building, so there’s no insta-lust or anything like that.Usually that would be...

    Wow, This Is A Powerful & Spirited 4.5 Star Read!! 🌟🍀Ok, so we have 'sort of' single Mum Alexis. She is magical although due to its type she doesn't like using it, she sees ghosts and can help them cross over!😳 Her Mum always taught her to hide as much about herself & her magic as possible, so she did and it has become a habit to hide in the cracks between the magical & human communities.She is the Guardian to two teens - Mordecai & Dais...

    Wow! What an amazing story. 💖💖💖💖💖The S&C story was perfect. I love meeting so many new characters and seeing a new world unfold within the pages. The author built the world up with the perfect amount of details so that you get a pretty good picture of everything but she still left enough unsaid so that the reader is surprised in the next book. This is a unique, original story unlike any I've read before. I'm especially fond of the ...

    SIN & CHOCOLATE by K.F. BREENE is book One in the Demigod of San Francisco series. This is the story of Kieran and Alexis. Alexis has magical powers that her mother had her keep secret so it is second nature to keep that under wraps. Alexis also has become a 'mother' to Mordecai & Daisy. Mordecai & Daisy haven't had a great life until the became a part of Alexis life. Each now are very close but there are still struggles with money and the need f...

    Hot! Hot! Hot!I will admit I went into this book blind. I hadn’t read any blurbs and wasn’t sure what the plot was, but knowing this author’s works I had high expectations. She did not fail me. Right from the start I loved Alexis. We are given a heroine who is down on her luck but she doesn’t let that crush her. Enter one devastatingly handsome demigod with stalker tendencies and things start to get hot. Kieran is drawn to Alexis because ...

    Sin and Chocolate is just so very delicious. Alexis is a strong, sassy, kind, and resilient woman and Kieran is just so crazy tempting. Though both have many issues to figure out between them, the chemistry is hot!! It will be so satisfying when they finally succumb to it. Daisy and Mordecai are wonderful, and the family bond is fun and interesting. Overall, K.F. Breene keeps putting out incredible stories that always seem to be my favorite while...

    This book was so good. Alexis, a magical user who is at the bottom of the magic totem pole, lives with her “kids”, Daisy and Mordecai. Daisy, a foster kid who has been abused through her lifetime, and Mordecai, a shifter who was disowned by his pack and is sick, along with Alexis, are a fantastic bunch of characters. Kieran, a Demigod, is searching for a way to set his mother free in the afterlife. This story is so good, you won’t want to p...

    I always fail to express how amazing K.F. Breene’s stories are. She is one of my absolute go to authors and everything she writes is reading gold! I am just not worthy but I will try. “If we don’t push through our fear, we will never learn what it means to achieve true success.”This quote from Sin & Chocolate pretty much sums up each and every one of K.F. Breene’s stories and their resilient, tough, independent female leads. They are al...

    WOW! JUST WOW!K.F. Breene has done it again! This is going to be a great series. I absolutely loved this book. It was funny (laugh out loud kind of funny) and sexy. The characters are so well written, I love them all. Alexis is smart, sassy and very funny. I love that she will not let anything get her down or anyone boss her around. Mordecai and Daisy (her wards) are really wonderful characters that sometimes act like Alexis’ conscience to try ...

    I’m pretty sure this is a case of “it’s not you, it’s me”I usually love everything KF Breene writes- but I just wasn’t loving this book. The teens kind of annoyed me. The change of POV in the writing kind of felt disjointed. It went from first to third between chapters. Too much new vocabulary when talking about things in the magical society, I was getting confused. And I just wanted romance and didn’t feel it. Maybe this isn’t a ...

    Excited to see where this goesI liked this story overall. The author created her own world and I like discovering things about I. I do have a couple of issues. I didn’t realize it was the first of a series when I started it, so that was a little frustrating. It is a really slow burn as far as the two main characters go. Nothing really happens between them in this novel, just a few stolen moments and lots of innuendo. I don’t know how to feel ...

    Very well written. The characters are well rounded and fully developed, and the plot is new and refreshing. I love the way the author incorporates magic into a very real-world setting. The subtle plot twists keep the reader engaged and intrigued. Overall a great read that I recommend, and I can't wait to read more in the series.

    What an awesome book 1! So so good! I love that she's snarky, selfless, and steadfast. I love that he's all alpha male protective over her. And —- Gah, the heat these two throw off is scorching! They’re not even together yet. 🔥🔥🔥Throw in her two young wards, Mordecai and Daisy, who have awesome personalities? I’m totally feeling this book, these characters. Can't wait to read the next book!

    Could have been SO much betterThis book could have been so much better. All Alexis did was whine and make snarky comments. Not one thing about her other then her willingness to take care of others would make me want to be around her or read more about her. Please dial it down, let’s have actual dialogue. Also this book is called sin and chocolate and it was really about a lot of depressing things and a minute amount of sexual tension. I’m goi...

    It has been a while since I have written a review, and it is not because I have not been reading. I have been dealing with change and my own issues. However, I felt the need after diving into the world builds of K.F. Breene for the last year to express and share my feelings on her latest book, Sin & Chocolate, a first in a new series. K.F. Breene has a unique ability to not only weave a world build with words, but also through her fanbase. She li...

    Very funI really enjoyed it, the whole book was addicting and super fun. I love the heroine, shes brave and snarky, but also a real genuine good person. In a lot of books, they tell the reader all the good qualities that the heroine supposedly has, but in this novel they really showed us that. I loved the side characters and their interactions with each other, it felt very real. My only complaint is that this felt more like a prequel rather than ...

    Weirdest book I've ever readThat is not a bad thing. I may be halfway in love with Kieran. I love a dirty talker, what little of it we got from him. This book was more about the plot and story than the romance. But don't get me wrong, there was romance. But if you're hoping for steamy bedtime goodness, that does not happen. It is implied that it will happen.But the real star of this story is Alexis and her wards. Alexis doesn't realize how powerf...

    3.5 stars - Feels too much like the first act of a bigger story and not enough happened to be the plot of a book in its own right.The world building is pretty good and the story has potential, but it took a long time to get going and then in the end not a lot really happened or was concluded. This means if you want to know the full story you definitely need to read the next novel and I generally don't like these kinds of cliffhanger books, which ...
