An all-new dark standalone romance from the USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Shantel Tessier
I was raised in a world where money and power are at your fingertips. My father is a LORD, a very respected member of a secret society that knows no bounds. When tragedy struck my family, we discovered we weren’t untouchable. Just when I thought life couldn’t get any worse, I was shown what hell is really like. Then he came and saved me. The devil disguised as my personal hero. But of course, nothing is for free. Not when a soul is up for grabs.
I VOW. YOU VOW. WE VOW.
Easton Bradley Sinnett—Sin—uses his power for his own sick pleasure. Like a typical Lord, he never thought about the consequences of his actions. I grew up with him, obsessed over him, craved him. He was who I pictured when I imagined doing things my body shouldn’t want.
One day, I realized he was not who I thought he was. It didn’t change anything, though, because I was already too far gone. If anything, I fell for him harder.
Every now and then, someone enters your life who flips it upside down. Sin wrecked me in the worst way, and I thanked him for it by serving on my knees.
As they say, nothing lasts forever. Men like him never stay with a woman like me. I’m what they use, not keep. So when he threw me away, I shouldn’t have been all that surprised.
My body had always craved the darker side of love. The kind that left bruises and scars. I was what most would call unholy. And when the devil whispered in my ear that he loved me, I was more than determined to show him just how devoted I could be.

Overall Opinion :
Okkkkk. So I tried for this one lmao but it was not for me. I am someone who likes a story with their steamy scenes but this book was lacking in that aspect. It has some amazing steamy scenes but there was just no backbone. I wanted more emotions? More angst? Idk. I guess I could not connect to the characters because they never talked hahahaha.
Shantel is a favorite author of mine and I always read her book so it breaks my heart to say but she has kind of lost her touch. Her last books have been like this too , with all steam and no plot and same was with this book. I hope she gets her dynamic back. I am not saying that this is a bad book or anything but I think I expected more . The hero was very hollow , he knew what the heroine had been through but still he was hell bent on screwing with her mind and sometimes I like that but in this case he had no regrets whatsoever. I don't think he even realized how much he hurted her sometimes. He was so busy in his possessive personality behavior that he never saw her love. It was very hollow. Like I said , I wanted more emotional connection.
Rest I would leave it to you but The SINNER was not an enjoyable read for me and I had to drag myself to somehow finish it.
