Blurb:
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+.

My Review:
I don’t have the appropriate words to describe how unbelievably AMAZING this book is. I love Penelope Ward’s books, but this one just blew me away.

The sexual tension between Evangeline and Sevin is some of the best I’ve ever read, and I loved how all the characters played out. I could relate and empathize with all the parties and I loved how real they all were. Sevin is definitely going at the top of my book boyfriend list because he was just incredible. He fought his feelings for so long because he wanted to do the right thing, and, ultimately the decision he reached before the tragedy occurred was perfect and then it all fell apart, but he still did the right thing even though he was in so much pain. Even the few times where he was angry and lashed out couldn’t dent my love for him – it only made him more real. Evangeline made some poor choices and I was screaming at her for some of it, but it was still very credible given the circumstances and their young age.

I stayed up really late reading this one as I literally couldn’t put it down, but it was so worth it.

Absolutely breathtaking, hugely emotional, and without a doubt one of the best books Ms Ward has written to date. If you are a fan of her work and you haven’t read this one yet, I highly encourage you to pick up a copy – you won’t be disappointed.
