Lust (Sins of the Fallen #3) by Karina Espinosa

Lust (Sins of the Fallen Book 3) by [Espinosa, Karina][BLURB]
Another death, kidnapping, and the arrival of a not-so-new Nephilim; Maximillion has reached his tipping point. With the consequences of his actions looming in the darkness, the Nephilim of Wrath may have another threat to worry about—himself.
When Max is approached by The Wanderer in regards to a mutual adversary, he will have to make a deal with the devil to save the only family he has left—even if it means infiltrating enemy territory without the aid of his friends. And leaving them in the hands of Sienna, the Nephilim of Lust.
Will this temporary truce with The Wanderer buy him more time, or speed up his prophesied demise? Can he trust Greed or Lust?
Alliances will be formed, teams will be chosen, and questions will be answered in the third installment of the Sins of the Fallen series.

The lines between good and evil are clear—and sometimes it feels good to be bad…

4.5 out of 5 stars

Max and his friends really don't know where to go and what to do. It's total pandemonium. The only thing they know is that Xavier has been captured, and they need to work together to get him back.

The Wanderer offers them a deal. A trade. But can they trust The Wanderer? There are questions at every turn, and you don't know who to believe. Who is good and who is evil? Not everything is black and white.

I really liked observing the changes in Max. In the previous books, he's a boy worrying about school and girls. Well... he's not a boy anymore. And Lust certainly knows how to stir the pot. I was a bit torn with her. Deep down inside I feel like she is a good person, but you just know she's up to no good. Is it wrong if I secretly love the cat fights between her and Angela?

I couldn't stop reading this book. From start to finish, I was so engrossed in the story. And now... I have to wait for the next book.

This is going to be one grueling period.
