REVIEW: Sins of Sevin by Penelope Ward


From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new forbidden STANDALONE romance.

What happens when the one you want is the only one you can’t have?

My name is Sevin.

Homeschooled and sheltered by my ultra-religious family, I was always taught that lust was a sin.

Elle was the girl who’d been carefully chosen for me.

After a long-distance courtship, I’d be moving into her family’s guesthouse so that we could get to know each other in the months before the wedding.

Boundaries were set: no inappropriate touching, no kissing, no sex before marriage.

I’d accepted those rules and my fate.

Until I met the one I wanted to sin with.

That was when restraint became a problem…especially since THE ONE wasn’t Elle.

It was her sister, Evangeline.

You know what they say about best laid plans.

My name is Sevin, and I have sinned.

**Told in alternating points of view, Sins of Sevin is a full-length standalone novel. Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. Only appropriate for adult readers age 18+. 

Purchase @ Amazon

My Thoughts

Sins of Sevin had me hooked just from reading the blurb. I absolutely LOVED this book! It's been a while since I have read a book that I didn't want to put down. It was exactly what I needed to read!

Sevin was raised in a religious family. After his father died, his step mother made arrangements for him to begin courting Elle. He would move in with her family, work at her Father's company and eventually take it over, and of course, marry her. On his way to their property he meets a girl on a bike. The connection between them is instantaneous.

He soon learns that the girl he met was Elle's sister Evangeline. Needless to say, this makes things quite difficult for the two of them - hence, forbidden romance.

Since of Sevin was a story that grabbed me from the beginning. I fell in love with the main characters, and even some of the supporting ones. It was easy to connect with them. The situations they found themselves in were believable. Their emotions were tangible, and this book gave me a LOT of feels.

There was so much going on in the story but I never felt lost. Sins of Sevin was told in the view points of Sevin and Evangeline. It was fantastic being able to get inside both their heads, and I don't think this book would have worked without it.

But that last chapter... OMG! I was left crying like a baby! Seriously... Ugly crying!

If you are looking for a book that has angst, great characters and a unique story line, DEFINITELY give Sins of Sevin a read!
