SERIES: The Original Sinners #5
PUBLISHER: Mills & Boon
GENRE: Contemporary Erotica
SOURCE: Publisher

Rebellious Eleanor is sick of her mother's zealotry and the confines of Catholic school, and declares she'll never go to church again. But her first glimpse of beautiful, magnetic Father Marcus StearnsSøren to her and only her—is an epiphany. Eleanor is consumed—yet even she knows being in love with a priest can't be right. And then a whole world opens when Søren reveals to her his deepest secrets that will change everything.


It got me just one chapter to start panicking! I almost didn't want to keep reading, and that says a lot considering my love for this series. Go on, read the book and then tell me I overreacted. I bet you will hold your breath until the very last page...

After the initial panic attack—but not the last one—I was drawn into Nora's story and her very first encounter with Søren, and boy if I cracked up during the read! I simply loved the rebellious Eleanor, her theological discussions with her unique priest and how Tiffany Reisz beautifully portrayed their building relationship. You think you got everything sorted out after "The Mistress", but I can assure you here more pieces of the puzzle fits together and Kingsley proves once more to be the best sinner character ever! I just found myself having mixed feeling for Nico. I'm not sure about his interaction with Nora, which at times kinda bothered me. Then, I suppose I have to wait for the next book to come out and see if I'll change my mind. With a brilliant author such as Reisz, I wouldn't be surprised to see that happening.

A piece of advice to those new to the series, past and present are mixed here, so be sure to read the first four instalments in the series beforehand. It is essential to properly follow the present events, but even more so to fall for the characters and one of the most powerful stories ever told!
