SINNER is NOW AVAILABLE!
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’m nearly at a loss for words at how amazing this book is. All of Sierra’s characters are so complex and yet easy to identify with that they become so real and you suffer and rejoice right along with them.
The common theme in this series of God and sex and where limitations lie within the Catholic faith are so fascinating to me. The author has such a great depth of intellect and thought into the Catholic faith. I love her idealisms of religion and sex, even the naughty, dirty-talking kind, and how they do not need to be mutually exclusive.
Both Sean Bell and Zenny Iverson are at a turning point in their lives. Sean, a man turned away from God, is dealing with some pretty hefty, emotional family responsibilities. He is null and void of any personally intimate relationships, aside from his money, which he believes with solve most anything. Zenny is a young postulant, preparing to devote her life to God. She had always had the will to prove herself, especially her family. She’s a hard worker with a giving heart.
Zenny asks Sean to test her commitment to her decision to take her vows before God, but what they both don’t realize is that the time the spend together will have them both questioning much more.
This book was beyond hot. Panty-melting hot. Please, talk dirty to me hot! I’ve never been disappointed with any scene written up by Sierra! And the FEELS... The feels, y’all. So many heartbreakingly beautiful and devastating moments. I can’t say enough!

Sierra Simone has a way of making everything wrong and yet so right. In a book where most people (myself included) are reading it for the unashamed naughtiness, she manages to make me and Sean see the light.
I connected so well with Sean's anger. I think anyone who has felt forsaken or let down by God can. It's amazing how Sierra manages to take a deliciously naughty book about self discovery and at the same time show others that it's okay to be angry with God.
It almost sounds like I'm batshit crazy...(if the shoe fits) but Sierra has managed to strengthen a frayed bond. I think the best part is she used a filthy talking, arrogant preening Sean Bell to do it.
I have long since considered the Bells friends- I mean after all I went through with Tyler and Poppy... So to see Sean and the Bells was like coming home. This trip home isn't without heartache, love, or terrible choices. Make sure that you've packed your tissues and comfort food before you take this trip home.

This author always gives us wonderful complex sexy male characters but she’s outdone herself this time.
If you though Father Bell was hot he’s got nothing on Sean Bell, he’s a walking talking sex god. An unapologetic man who loves women and sex and doesn’t hide it. Sean is a dirty talker who’d never been in love in fact he’s never felt s connection to any woman.
This is another beautifully written masterpiece that continues the theme of religion versus love and relationships. I loved the characters I couldn’t resist Sean and Zenny is such a sweet young woman you can’t help falling for her.
Another hot sexy intense story that I couldn’t put down.

“Zenny,” I mumble against her lips, some valiant part of me recognizing that this is far, far beyond the kiss she asked for, and also recognizing that I’m going to come all over the inside of my Hugo Boss suit pants if she keeps it up. Even through the clothes, I can feel her heat, her shameless rolls hinting at where she goes soft and wet between her legs.
Fuck, I want to see it. I want to see her pussy. It’s suddenly all I can think about, all I can want or crave, just one glimpse, just a peek.
“I want to see your cunt,” I say hoarsely, lifting my head.
“My…cunt?” She says the word like she’s never said it out loud before.
“Yeah.” My voice is so ragged right now, so desperate, and fuck, I’ve never felt this frantic before. Like I’ll actually combust if I don’t get this one thing, this one small sight of her secret place.
She lets out a shaky breath, her hand dropping from my lapel to her skirt, which she slowly rucks up to her waist as I devour her lips once more, as I bury my face in her neck and kiss every sliver of skin exposed above her collar. I bite at her ear, at her jaw, my hand finding hers as it pulls her skirt up, so that I’m helping her do it, that we’re doing it together, this forbidden act, this forbidden revelation.
Her forbidden body.
That word, forbidden, spikes through my mind, bringing with it equal spikes of lust and fear. Because yes, it’s fucking hot that I shouldn’t be kissing her, I shouldn’t be begging to see her most secret place, my hand shouldn’t be covering hers as it slides up her thigh—but it’s also bad. Bad even for Sean Bell.
Bad, bad, bad.
