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.

I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

My Review

“I have so much love inside of me that’s all yours, and it’s been trapped inside. I need to give it to you, because holding it in is killing me.”

Once again, we have been allowed to enter the unique world of Penelope Ward. Sins of Sevin offered us a read of epic proportions that told of a love never intended, that led down roads undefined, and created paths that only few could possibly walk.

Nothing that’s worth it comes easy. But when the payoff comes, it can be spectacular.

Love is beautiful. Watching two people fall in love is breathtaking.  Listening to their talks that bring them closer together makes us fall even harder for them. We cheer for them, laugh with them, and cry with them.  But we also must come to terms with their predicament and positions in life.  When we enter into Sins of Sevin, we cannot possibly be prepared for the depths that this story will take us, and the place in which we will be left in the end.

“You’re my truth. Everything else is a lie.”

Sins of Sevin was such an emotional read.  Told in first person, dual points of view, leaving this book I was in a haze.  My heart and mind were so full, but at the same time had been completely emptied and left on the pages of Sevin. It was breathtakingly beautiful, but had a level of pain, remorse, and dwindling hope that made my emotions stretched.  I physically had a need to hold onto something in order to steady myself along the way.  There was so much depth and complexity represented in the story line and that followed into the characters. As usual, Author Penelope Ward established some wonderful secondary characters. One of these made me laugh so hard, and the other caused my heart to swell.  As every chapter and scene changed, I was so pulled in that I easily followed, feeling as if I were a bystander watching and listening.  Sins of Sevin is not only at the top of my taboo list, but also worked it’s way into my top 5 reads of 2015.

“You can’t choose love.  It chooses you, and once that happens, it doesn’t let go.”
