SAINT by Sierra Simone
Release Date: September 7th
Genre/Tropes: M/M/Second-chance romance/Brothers Best Friend/Forbidden Romance


I can’t have Elijah Iverson.

I can’t have him because he’s my older brother’s best friend. I can’t have him because I broke his heart five years ago; because he’s now engaged to someone else—someone kind and dependable who deserves his whiskey eyes, his soft mouth, his fierce intellect.

I can’t have Elijah because I’ve chosen God instead.

The Bell brothers, though . . . well, we don’t exactly have the greatest track record with vows. But I’m determined to do this monk thing right—to pledge myself to a cloistered life and spend the rest of my years in chastity and prayer. But now Elijah’s here. He’s here and he’s coming with me on my European monastery road trip, and between the whispered confessions and the stolen kisses and the moments bent over an ancient altar, my vows are feeling flimsier by the day.

And vows or not, I know in my heart that it would take more than a good and holy monk to resist Elijah Iverson right now. It would take a saint.

And we all know that I’m no saint.

(This is the third full-length standalone in the Priest Collection, featuring Father Bell’s brother, Aiden Bell.  You do not have to read Priest or Sinner to read Saint.)

A little bit forbidden and a whole lot of role playing going on! How could I not fall in love with Aiden as a monk and Elijah as the abandoned ex-lover? The story has the mystery of why Aiden ran off in the middle of the night to join a monastery without talking to his boyfriend. I loved the way these two reconnected again and how Aiden was torn between his love of God and his love for Elijah. The writing was addictive and I couldn’t put the book down. Will they or won’t they? Will Aiden be discovered? Will he stay in Europe and help brew monk beer? The story was super steamy, playful at times, heartbreaking at others and I couldn’t see an easy happy ending. Definitely a bit of an emotional roller coaster. I LOVE this series and the evolving view on religion. Quite beautiful in the end.
