Review:

Alright, Beckman: Lord of Sins is the third Lonely Lords book I have read in as many days. While I did enjoy this story, I did like all the characters, I can't help but notice that the same basic outline is followed in all three stories. As I was reading I just thought okay, now this will happen, now this next, oh this is about when this will show up, and so on. The situations are different, but the basic plot line is the same. Read by themselves farther apart I might not have noticed it, but read back to back I cannot help but feel like I have read this before, which just made it not as good as it could have been.

Beckman has always been sent off here and there to try and keep him out of the gossip. This book starts either about the same time or just before Nicholas, so it was interesting to see what Beckman was up to at that time. His dying father sends Beckman to Three Springs to restore the place to what it should be. When he arrives things are not in good shape. Sara and Polly are trying to keep everything going on what little they have, with North managing the estate and farming. It is an uphill battle to get everything fixed and taken care of, but Beckman is ready for it. He is used to working hard for things, though he has to get Polly and Sara to agree to let him spend money on the items they need. They shouldn't have to scrimp and use their income to supplement what money his aunt sends them for the estate.

Sara is pretty terrified of change. She doesn't trust men, she doesn't want to leave their little place they have in the world, she doesn't want anyone to hurt her daughter or her sister. She is always worried about something, and her attraction to Beckman doesn't help. She wants to be with him, but it is not a good idea. After all she has secrets from her past, secrets that will make him not want to or be able to be with her.

Beckman doesn't care about Sara's past. He just wants to be there for her and her daughter. He just wants to be with her. He has his own dark past, but he is still ready to try and move forward into a better future with Sara. He is really great with her, pushing her when she needs it, comforting her when possible, just being there for her. Sara, while she loves that, is still stubborn and refuses to accept that Beckman can or will want to be with her once he learns everything. She is one of the more difficult girls from these books. She is just so certain that things with Beckman won't last she doesn't give it a real chance. She keeps pulling away after every step forward he tries to take. It was just...she has some things that happened that were not good, things that she is ashamed of, and people who know of them are threatening to intrude on her present and ruin everything she has built for herself. Someone is threatening to ruin her little safe hiding place she has made. I do love how everything worked out. I really enjoyed Beckman and Sara together. I did enjoy this book, but I think I am going to have to hold off on reading more. I am just a bit worn out of the same general plot line.
