Priest and Sinner by Sierra Simone

Priest and Sinner by Sierra Simone are books 1 and 2 of her Priest series. As the title suggests, one of the characters starts of as a Priest. I found that she managed to write a rather respectful book towards those that are religious (myself included), but it is a taboo topic and if you can't get over that perhaps you should not read it. But if you can, prepare yourself for two amazing books! 

Priest and Sinner by Sierra Simone

Father Bell is still new to the priesthood. After some horrible things that happened to his sister, that ended with her taking away her own life, he decides to dedicate himself to God and show those around him that not all Priests are monsters. 
And Poppy needs someone to talk to. What better way than to turn to God and use confession? 
Things take a turn rather fast. Tyler (Father Bell) loves God and being a Priest, but perhaps he didn't consider how much he would have to give up from his previous life. And Poppy makes sure to remind him. Poppy is a temptation he cannot resist.
I loved them both. They were great characters. Tyler is faithful (albeit a very naughty boy) throughout. Poppy grows as the story progresses, in faith and in personality. 
This is 100% an erotica. What the blurb hints at happens and is told in great detail and more than once.
It is not a story for those easily offended. But it a GREAT story. A story of temptation, of love, of emotional and spiritual growth... but like every human being in the planet, their story has bumps along the road. 
I truly cannot recommend this one enough. Its HOT HOT HOT, a respectful taboo (say what?), and a FABULOUS romance story.

Sean Bell is one of Tyler Bell's brother. Tyler turned to God when his sister was abused, Sean did the exact opposite. He follows the money and he follows the skirt. The people he cares for as his parents, his brothers, and his best friend. That is it. Everyone else is there to be used while he needs something from them.
Zenobia is his best friend's little sister. Someone he has not seen in years. Last time he saw her she was still a kid. 
Their first encounter is at a party, he sees this gorgeous young girl and hits on her hard. She is only 21, he is well over 30. He has to leave and thinks he will never see her again. Than his boss calls him in and tells him some nuns are making a fuss on a building they just purchased. And surprise! The girl from the party is there, not a nun yet but only a few weeks away from saying her vows. And her name? Zenobia. His best friend baby sister.
It could all end there, but than she decides she needs to 'experience' the world before making her vows and what better way to do it than with someone experienced, that loves sex and money too much to ever get attached, and that she knows she can trust with her life?
I am sure you can all guess how this unfolds. 
It is a beautifully told story of one man in a lot of pain that can't let go of the past and a girl that has never been able to make a decision for herself. 
It was much slower than Priest and I wasn't sure about it to start, but once the story picks up it is heartbreakingly beautiful!

Quickies, April 2021

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

A Touch of Darkness (Hades & Persephone #1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I knew very little going into this book except that it had my current favorite bad boy in it: Hades! Seriously though, I have a "hades tbr" at the moment, it's a thing. And if you know any good Hades based romances do tell me. Always and forever looking for more. Hades, the God of the Dead was phenomenal. I have ZERO complaints about his character. There was more to the underworld than known by other gods and humans, and the same is true about the man that runs the place. He is to the point and although not always up front and straight forward he is always honest and true. He has built a gambling empire but his bets are not always monetary and they are known for being impossible.  Persephone was very much still learning who she really was. Up until meeting Hades and for some time after she has no power of her own. Plants die at her touch and that is that. She is also known as the goddess of spring, but that is not because of who she is but rather because of who her mother

Yes & I Love You by Roni Loren [ALC review]

It is always nice when a book surprises you. Yes & I Love You was more than the title suggests. Yes, it is certainly a romance novel, but it also deals with things most of us don't think about when talking inclusion in books. The main female character, Hollyn, has tourette syndrome and suffers panic attacks. The disease affected the character's daily life but didn't define who she was. The author, Roni Loren,  holds a master’s degree in social work and spent years as a mental health counselor, and it is clear her experiences helped her here. She represented the illness well and did a great job at demonstrating how anxiety and other daily things we take for granted made things harder for Hollyn.   Hollyn is very successful in her field. She runs a popular blog and her word is the law. If she recommends your business or entertainment it is certain it will be successful. But because of her tourettes she hides behind the screen and no one knows what the popular reviewer &qu
