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!

Radiant Sin (Dark olympus) by Katee Robert [arc review]

This is sadly, not going to be a very popular review. I adore Katee Robert. But this one just wasn't for me. It wasn't a terrible book or anything like that, it just left me wanting more and very puzzled. Every one of the books in this series follows a certain trope and/or subplot genre. Neon Gods is very much a Greek Mythology retelling;  Electric Idol  has the plus size influencer and the sweet bad boy, it is a very modern contemporary romance;  Wicked Beauty , and my favorite so far has that hunger games/dystopian vibe. Radiant Sin  is a murder mystery. The 'one house'/'one train' style that has always been so popular. Here lies problem number one for me, because I don't like murder mysteries at all. Even on my teen years when I read a lot of mystery it was never those. Problem two- there were way too many characters in that house, and they all got their time on the page making it one very confusing mess. It was very hard to follow at times. I think this

The Book Hater's Book Club by Gretchen Anthony

The Book Hater's Book Club  at first appears to be about a struggling bookstore and its imminent sale. Elliot, the co-owner of Over the Rainbow Bookstore, started  The Book Hater's Book Club , a newsletter of reading recommendations for the self-proclaimed non-readers of the world, because he believed there was a book out there for everyone. Something I wholeheartedly agree with! For years he and Irma have kept the store going and always had a recommendation in hand. When you finish this book, you will have yet another list of books to read.  However, this book is about more than just books and a struggling bookstore. It is also about grief, the price of secrets, and a little more grief.  You see, Elliot is gone, and his grief-ridden business partner has agreed to sell the store to developers. Problem is, she didn't tell that to anyone until the deal was almost done. Which is making her daughters ask questions. Why is she selling? Is it grief alone? Is there something else

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she
