Synopsis (Goodreads):
The long anticipated installment of the best-selling and critically acclaimed F.R.E.A.K.S. Squad series is finally here…

CLASSIFIED: The Exiled F.R.E.A.K.

What’s a F.R.E.A.K. to do after all her hopes and dreams literally died in front of her? Telekinetic Beatrice Alexander went from flying around the country in a private jet, saving innocent lives from monstrous threats to living in her grandmother’s house, playing video games and drinking too much. Directionless, hiding from her problems and trauma, she will do anything not to confront her deadly actions that fateful night in North Carolina three months before. Any distraction will do.

Enter Lord Connor McInnis.

Drawn to the sexy, powerful ruler of San Diego, Beatrice soon loses herself in the passion and luxury of the vampire’s world. But when she finds herself caught in the middle of a centuries old vampire rivalry, Beatrice must decide: how far is she willing to go for those she loves…and for herself?
Thoughts on The Sin Eater: Okay. I'm going to start off by saying Bea is a HOT MESS in this book. Hot. Freaking. Mess. Her self-destructive lever's been torqued to the max and she's running on emotional fumes. Heck, she's not even running on fumes. Emotionally, she's as closed off as a person can be while they're still breathing.

Granted, she has an excellent reason for being like she is. Her last mission with the F.R.E.A.K.S, shattered all the dreams she had for the future. She blames herself for what happened and she's totally unable to face her old squad members. She has some deep-seated issues she needs to work out and she's actively avoiding all of them.

Naturally, her self-destructive leanings send her straight into the arms of Vampire Lord Connor McInnis. Which throws her dead-center in the middle of vampire politics and all sorts of other unsavory things.

Vampire politics are nothing to mess around with, man. They're messy and dangerous and Bea's telekinetic power makes her a hot commodity.

Dark and sometimes bloody, Bea's emotional journey was hard to read at times and some of her actions were almost cringe-worthy. Given the circumstances, though, she had to go through all the awful to get to a place where she was even SLIGHTLY ready to move on. Now it's just a matter of continuing forward for her.
