REVIEWED BY JILL
4 stars for - Sinner - book two in the Priest series by the wickedly talented Sierra Simone. While this is technically the third book in the series it can be read as a complete stand-alone, but if you have not yet indulged in book one - Priest - and a novella (1.5) -
Mass - go now, actually you should run and read them...I can't even begin to tell you all that you are missing out on! As with most of Ms. Simone's writing she holds NOTHING back often hitting topics that others may find taboo, illicit and at times even scandalous, but she does so in ways that captivate and leave you wanting more.
Sean Bell has it all - good looks, a great job, more money he could spend in this lifetime and a new woman in his bed every night. Attending a charity function was supposed to be just another night out, but he meets a goddess in a red dress that takes his breath away. Having to abruptly leave the function causes him to miss out on a night with his beauty, but unbeknownst to him they will be meeting again sooner than he could ever possibly imagine.
Zenobia (Zenny) Iversen is a twenty-one-year-old college senior who is about six weeks away from taking her vows of chastity prior to becoming a nun. Zenny is also in her last year of nursing school and plans on specializing by becoming a mid-wife. As ambitious as she is with both nursing and her duties to become a nun she still pushes herself to do more, to live up to the expectations of her mother - the judge and her father - the doctor. Attending the gala and dressing up was to be her last hurrah of sorts before she buckled down and took her vows, so she never expected to see the one man she has loved since she was a little girl looking so handsome and tempting in a tuxedo. The amusing part is he doesn't even realize that she is his best friend's baby sister.
This was a beautifully written love story that kept me invested from start to finish. With so many obstacles in their way and the drama of everyday life it was an intricate tale that I truly enjoyed. The other Bell brothers also made appearances in this book and if the author is wondering whether or not we would read those books as well the answer would be a resounding YES! It seems my fires burn the hottest for Father Jeremy Bell and I will ALWAYS kneel at that man's altar, but his brother the - Sinner - is pretty darn hot and filthy too :)
I’m not a good man, and I’ve never pretended to be. I don’t believe in goodness or God or any happy ending that isn’t paid for in advance.
What do I believe in? Money. Sex. Macallan 18.
They have words for men like me—playboy. Womanizer. Skirt chaser.
My brother used to be a priest, and he only has one word for me.
***Sinner is a standalone companion to Priest about Father Bell's brother Sean. You do not have to read Priest or Midnight Mass to read Sinner.***
“Zenny,” I mumble against her lips, some valiant part of me recognizing that this is far, far beyond the kiss she asked for, and also recognizing that I’m going to come all over the inside of my Hugo Boss suit pants if she keeps it up. Even through the clothes, I can feel her heat, her shameless rolls hinting at where she goes soft and wet between her legs.
Fuck, I want to see it. I want to see her pussy. It’s suddenly all I can think about, all I can want or crave, just one glimpse, just a peek.
“I want to see your cunt,” I say hoarsely, lifting my head.
“My…cunt?” She says the word like she’s never said it out loud before.
“Yeah.” My voice is so ragged right now, so desperate, and fuck, I’ve never felt this frantic before. Like I’ll actually combust if I don’t get this one thing, this one small sight of her secret place.
She lets out a shaky breath, her hand dropping from my lapel to her skirt, which she slowly rucks up to her waist as I devour her lips once more, as I bury my face in her neck and kiss every sliver of skin exposed above her collar. I bite at her ear, at her jaw, my hand finding hers as it pulls her skirt up, so that I’m helping her do it, that we’re doing it together, this forbidden act, this forbidden revelation.
Her forbidden body.
That word, forbidden, spikes through my mind, bringing with it equal spikes of lust and fear. Because yes, it’s fucking hot that I shouldn’t be kissing her, I shouldn’t be begging to see her most secret place, my hand shouldn’t be covering hers as it slides up her thigh—but it’s also bad. Bad even for Sean Bell.
Bad, bad, bad.
