Publisher Description

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 voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of the book.

Oh this book! From word one I was hooked, but as I went on (obsessively - I COULD NOT PUT THE BOOK DOWN!!!) I found myself wishing that Sierra Simone was the curator of my thoughts. I need her to be my inner monologue because the way that she expresses thoughts and uses the art of WORDS is absolutely magical. I don't think I've been compelled to update my Goodreads status as many times as I did while reading this book. There were SO MANY incidents where I had to externalize my reactions to the book (the awareness of the importance of a satin pillowcase has never been more meaningful to me). Sean hit me like a ton of bricks with his confidence and swag, but mostly with his willingness to accept his feelings and run with it (and his utterly eloquent fury when someone came at his woman sideways). And Zenny. My favorite book heroine HANDS DOWN. She was so intelligent and aware and vulnerable and bold and just EVERYTHING that I want to be and all the good things that I see in my daughters. Their banter, their interactions, the way that they grew together and changed each other in such a short amount of time was cataclysmically awesome. Once again, in the midst of reading the book, I had to stop to order the paperback because I had to have this book on my shelf. I have to be able to hold it and feel it and absorb it in that oh so visceral way. This will be a book that I reread into perpetuity. Plus I NEEDED to give the author my money. The way Sierra Simone handled racism, white privilege, religion, faith, grief, loss, and so much more was utterly amazing. Sinner gets all of the stars in the known galaxy and those far beyond.

Sinner is so much more than the story on the page. There are layers of meaning between every word and scene. It is a journey, a ride that author Sierra Simone steers. On the surface Sinner is sexy as hell, and that is all good too!

“There’s nothing between us. Nothing at all, except for God and broken promises and two grasping, reaching hearts.”

The writing is beautiful and intelligent, the characters are deep, real even in all their flaws and larger than the page.

“I can’t crack her faith the way her love cracks me. I can’t carve away her connection with God the same way she’s carved a gap into my heart that she refuses to fill.”

Sinner is EVERYTHING! It is just SO beautiful, deep & thought provoking, AND SO HOT!! And it just broke my heart!! I seriously bawled my eyes out! I had to stop reading because I couldn’t see the page!!
