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***
I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect from Sinner after having read Priest.
I loved Priest, but part of me wondered if Sierra Simone could possibly live up to it with this second book. Particularly, for me, because there was something so appealing about how forbidden the previous book’s romance was.
One of the things I loved most about Priest was the narrator, Tyler/Father Bell, who was such a good soul with very dark desires. I’ve read so many bad boy romances that I was almost a little bit let down when I read the (albeit super well-written) synopsis.
However, I should’ve known that if anyone can write a totally non-cliche, sizzling-without-being-cheesy bad boy romance… it’s Sierra Simone.
Her work, particularly when talking about religion, is so quotable. I appreciate the part that religion plays in these books. She doesn’t poke fun at it or gloss over it, which I would be irritating even to someone like me who isn’t particularly religious.
