Melissa's Review:

Tyler Bell, a young hunky priest is doing his daily tasks at his small town church when an unfamiliar woman walks in for confession. He's instantly intrigued by her voice and even after she leaves Tyler can't get her out of his head. The mystery lady, Poppy, goes back to confession several times and admits that she looked at his picture on the church's website and finds him attractive. After a few more times of seeing one another in and out of the church, things escalate and it leads to scorching hot scenes and doesn't let up from there. The book mainly focues on the relationship between Tyler and Poppy and the vows he's breaking to be with her.

I loved several things about the book but had a few issues too. The issues I had knocked my rating down a few stars unfortunately. I was bothered by Poppy's ex-boyfriend. I felt it took the story from being unique (at least to me) to tossing in normal stuff we see in tons of other books just to create jealousy. There were also a few bits that were mentioned, but never really lead to anywhere. It would have kept the story tidier if those had been removed or even added more detail so it expanded the story.

Onto the things I really enjoyed! Of course, I'm going to mention the smutty deliciousness. There are several different scorching scenes that will have you fanning yourself. I also loved the fact that Tyler wasn't just like "let's do this" immediately. We see Tyler trying to remain just friends with Poppy, and exactly when the lines blur. And lastly, I loved that Priest is told in Tyler's POV. It's definitely a change of pace for me since I'm used to being in a woman's POV, but I found it helped us understand our leading man a lot better. He's the one conflicted with his inner temptation and views so I'm glad it was told this way. If you're looking for an erotica book with a naughty priest, I suggest you grab this book.

  1. I've been up in the air about this book. I think I'll compare it to The Original Sinners series by Tiffany Reisz and I don't think it will stand up to that, because Tiffany Reisz is awesome. I think I would do a disservice to the book going in with that mindset. I'm still debating about trying it. Maybe one day. I do like the idea that it is told from the idea that it is told from the priest's POV. Great review.

    1. No problem Melliane. It's really smutty, so I don't think you'd enjoy it.

    1. I'm pretty sure you're right, that he's a Catholic priest. I don't think the others have confession booths now that you mention it!

  5. This is the first time I'm hearing about this but it sounds interesting. I like that it is through the Priest's POV since he's going to have a lot going on on his end. I will have to check it out.
