I’m a priest, a messenger of God, a good man. At least that’s what I would have them all believe.
She’s a lost lamb, cast adrift from her flock and seeking shelter from the wolves snapping at her heels. She’s looking for salvation, protection, forgiveness for her sins. I’m not the man to give it to her. But for the first time in my life, I want to be.
Little does she know…
For even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.
The Pope is raw, explosive and it blows your moral compass to pieces. I loved every deliciously sinful thing about it.
Delilah as always been attracted to the bad boys and her most recent boyfriend is just that. It’s been fun but when things go wrong, she finds herself in excruciating torment and broken. After a drinking bender, she finds herself inside a church and seeking something from those hauntingly beautiful blue eyes. If only she knew it was the Devil.
Judas plays the role of devout priest but there is so much more to him that most know. He’s dark and dangerous and oh so alluring. When Delilah walks into his church, he gets test more than he could have imagined.
“I will corrupt her, one beautiful sin at a time.”
These two are so broken and only the other can put them back together. It’s dark, sad and oh so scandalous.
I thought the writing was smooth, like always, and the characters and scenes well put together. I truly did love this. At this point you are probably wondering why four stars if I loved it so much. Truth? There were several moments where I felt like I was back into another book and it was difficult to get past it. The overall book is much different but everyone has their own book triggers that you can relate to a specific book for one reason or another and there were just just enough of those that it only slightly held me back. Please understand that this is just a personal issue and does reflect on the story itself. I loved and devoured it, just like Judas did Delilah.
You want this baby, trust me.
