Giana Darling’s Evolution of Sin Re-Release ARC Review

Thank you to Giana Darling and the team at the Candi Kane PR for the advance reader copy of the re-released Evolution of Sin trilogy.

Giana’s debut trilogy is getting a new look and some new content! I was so grateful to be granted a copy of the re-release so that I could have the perfect opportunity to re-read this trilogy before we get Elena and Dante’s story in When Heroes Fall.

Check out the Goodreads synopsis…

“It started with an affair. A seven-day affair with a mysterious French billionaire on the beaches of Mexico.

I didn’t know anything about him except his name.


He was older, dominant in ways I’d never known, utterly romantic, and taken by another woman.

He shouldn’t want me.

I shouldn’t let myself want him.

After the most passionate week of my life, I never believed I would see Sinclair again when I moved to New York City to begin my next chapter.

I certainly never expected to find him in my mother’s kitchen.

Now, I’m faced with an impossible choice.

Safeguard my burgeoning career, my reputation, and my family by sacrificing the only man I’ve ever loved.

Or follow my heart into the cold, dominating hands of the man I shouldn’t crave but do with every inch of my soul while condemning those I love to misery as a consequence.”

Check out my more detailed thoughts below…

  • The Affair: Giselle grows so much over the course of just one instalment in this series. She starts as this young, inexperienced, virgin who has spent her life running away from her problems. The reader cannot help but find Giselle likeable, there are aspects of all of us in her really. Which makes it so awesome to see her begin to find her voice and ask for what she wants. The reader cannot help but question this affair as Sinclair never hides that he’s in a relationship, meaning that Giselle makes the choice firmly to be the other woman, to be a homewrecker. The way Giana writes this story almost makes you excuse the cheating, you cannot help but be torn apart as you really begin to see how Sin and Elle bring out the best in each other. Elle is bolder and Sin is happier. Their chemistry is off the charts, their scenes together are just delicious! – 4/5 stars
  • The Secret: The second book has this air of sadness over it, it sits on Giselle and the reader’s shoulders. You go from the bold and bright Mexico version of Elle, to the Bambina of the Lombardi family. In a way, her family almost stunts her, as if she is a butterfly with her wings clipped. New York is definitely better than it was in Italy but there is a reserved and restricted nature to Giselle in The Secret. From Giselle’s perspective, she really does seem like the odd one out in the family. But perspective can be telling. It is super interesting to read her relationship with Cosima and how Giselle sees them as extremely close. While us avid Giana Darling readers know just how much Cosi is keeping from Giselle. If you don’t know do yourself a favour and read The Enslaved Duet. Sinclair and Giselle have an attraction unlike anyone else. Which made their relationship really frustrating in this book. To watch Sin stay in a relationship that makes him unhappy makes you as a reader want to pull your hair out. – 4/5 stars
  • The Consequence: I genuinely think this is a really interesting series but I do lose some of my love for it in the third and final instalment. And most of my issues stem from Mr. Daniel Sinclair. Sinclair does some extremely questionable overly protective and controlling things. I’ve read this twice, with a lot of life experiences in between and yet I cannot get behind some of the things he did. Reading The Consequence makes me so excited for an Elena redemption arc. It became even more and more obvious as the story went on that she had no spark with Sinclair, and I am so freaking excited to see her fall for Dante.

The Evolution of Sin trilogy receives four out of five stars.
