WARNING: If you have not finished the original series, this review may have spoilers!
Without a doubt, Truth or Lies is my favourite Ella Miles series. So I was ECSTATIC that she was planning two spin-off series focusing on characters that I would love to spend more time with. Sinful Truths is the first series to come about and I couldn’t wait to dive in.
How Does It Compare To The Original?
Compared to its predecessor, I thought this book started a little slower. There were quite a few unanswered questions at the beginning that had me a little hung-up but as things fall into place, the picture becomes clearer and captivates your attention. The stakes are just as high here and that adds some depth to the plot that I love in Ella Miles’ novels.
Anything I Didn’t Like?
Some of those unanswered questions bothered me because it made things seem a little sloppy in terms of the plot. But I should always know that Ella has something mind-blowing in store…
My Expectations for the Rest of the Series:
I have no idea where this series is going or how it will relate further to the original series. But this is a trip I cannot wait to take!
My Rating: 4/5
Sinful Truths 4/5 | Book 2 TBP | Book 3 TBP
A promising start to a great spin-off series that will captivate new fans as well as satisfy the returning.

Synopsis for Sinful Truths (from Goodreads):
She saved me.
Pulled me from the depths of the ocean.
Siren—her name fits. She is beauty; her voice heavenly.
But unlike the mythical version, Siren didn’t lure me to my death.
She saved me.
And now, seeing her about to be sold to the highest bidder, I know it’s my turn to save her.
I was raised to always tell the truth, no matter what.
And it’s served me well.
Today, I wish I could lie.
Because my truth put me here—about to be sold.
A lie could set me free.
But I always tell the truth, even when I lie.
