Title:  Priest

Plot:   There are many rules a priest can't break. 
A priest cannot marry. A priest cannot abandon his flock. A priest cannot forsake his God.

I've always been good at following rules. 
Until she came. 
My name is Tyler Anselm Bell. I'm twenty-nine years old. Six months ago, I broke my vow of celibacy on the altar of my own church, and God help me, I would do it again. 
I am a priest and this is my confession.

Although, maybe it's just me but, I skimmed majority of this read. I just did not connect with the plot and especially the main characters as much as I would have thought.

A lot of the book content seemed to focus on sex, which I'm not complaining over, but I wished there was something more to hold my interest, ya know?

Basically, after tragedy strikes and Tyler becomes a priest at his family's Catholic church, one day during confessional he meets Poppy.

They have an instant connection, or should I say attraction, and from there everything is pretty fast-paced.

There was sex, sex, and lots of sex!!


But when Poppy's ex, Tyler's family secret, as well as his decision to stay in the priesthood or leave it all completely--come into play, will he repent for his sins? Or find love and happiness in the sacrament of love?

So, would I recommend this read?


Maybe. If you love smutt galore and constant "c*nt," "wh#re," and "lamb" references.

All in all, a big toss up for me. I didn't hate this read, but I didn't love it either. I could feel Tyler's dilemma about his vows, his guilt for what happened in the past, and the angst he felt over falling in love with Poppy; not to mention, the anguish of ever letting her go.

It's just, something was missing in it for me.
