Priest (Priest #1)by Sierra Simone


BOOK: Priest



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.


 There are some books, old and new which are very hard for me to review, hence I haven’t yet. They are probably my favorite ones but because of that my brain gets an overload of thoughts and feelings every time I try to convey what they make me feel, then I get  frustrated and I can’t explain clear enough how much they have affected me o how much they are staying with me forever.

This Month I am making the effort to change that and I’m going to try and post the reviews of those very books , the ones I love so much that the words get tangled in my brain trying to explain the feelings that I get reading them.

In that note I will start with a book that was a bit of a shock as much as a turn on to me and this one is Priest by Sierra Simone.

Priest is book that is first and foremost beautifully written, melodic and poetic at times, that was the first feeling that I got and the first surprise for me, I was expecting something way different, I don’t know why I just thought it was going to be the typical smutty grittier story with some cheap taboo in it, and no developing story, I was so wrong.


“Whatever happens after this, I just want you to know that this was worth it. You were worth it. You were worth everything.”

I knew this book was going to be taboo and I knew it was going to be hot and a bit dirty, but I  had no idea that it was going to be  filthy in the best way(some scenes are clearly a bit much for the shock value)   and oh! so steamy , I can’t even tell you !! And a love story that was just wonderful to read and so engaging, I just know I’m going to obsess over this book for a while.

“if this was what love was, then I didn’t know how anyone could bear the weight of it.”

Let me tell you, first that I was raised Catholic, first communion, catechism classes and all that. With the years and the current events that have developed in the Catholic church in the last 20 years my church going days have been less and less, but I still am a spiritual person, I believe in a higher power that looks upon us and I always have feel that the priesthood should be dealt in a different way, celibacy is not natural to me and should not be impose on anyone, maybe that’s why this topic didn’t bother me so much in this book  it seemed to shine a light in something that is an ever present thought about priesthood ,cause aren’t they men after all ?? Don’t they deserve love, not just from their god but form a partner too?? And we all  have the same normal biological and mental urges.


There are scenes in this book that to me represent so well the communion between the love for your God and that earthly love for your partner, your other half, that urge for connection that all humans have and those hidden desires that just need the right person to be awaken… cause they are in all of us .

“God dwelled in sex and marriage just as much as He dwelled in celibacy and service,”

It didn’t felt dirty or wrong if felt like real love,maube a bit hightrned by the circumstances , and  a love story that developed under strained circumstances, (This is all my thoughts about that topic I understand if you don’t feel the same way)

“Was it truly so terrible for a man of God to have sex? The Protestants had been doing it for half a millennium and they seemed no more hell-bound than the Catholics for it. And was it so wrong to want both? I wanted to lead this church, I wanted to help people find God. But dammit, I wanted Poppy too, and I didn’t think it was fair that I had to choose.”

Love like that shouldn’t be a burden or sin under anyone’s eyes and our characters know this they can’t help it, they can’t avoid it, and it’s too strong for them, something that feels so right and make you that elated shouldn’t be a bad thing right ??


That’s the problem because Father Bell is confuse, his vows tell him to stay away from temptation, but Poppy feels like the right thing for him, he can’t find the balance between his vocation, his will to help the people in his parish and the ardent feelings and tender love that he’s developing for this woman that is looking for a new truth to her life, a new path.

It’s not even just lust it’s so much more its love in its purest form he wants to be with her all of her , the good the bad and just be one with her and share his love of god with her too, show her the wonders of that light.

“I thought, this is what it’s like to be torn apart for love. This is what it means to be reborn.”

To say that this book had some hot scenes is not enough, cause they were sizzling, I mean if the Taboo and forbidden is your thing, dam!! Ufff yeah!!

Am I wrong to like this so much?? Am I a little twisted for liking these subjects Maybe?

Well, if that’s the case Sierra Simone has made me a willing sinner, and this is erotica so it will be hot as hell!!! And I wouldn’t want it any other way.

“My little lamb,” I whispered. “You are so very, very wet right now.”

I consider myself very open minded, but I did struggle a little with some moments, reading some really hot scenes where I wonder and thought about how fucking bad this was , and  that this was really so sinful and decadent but it was so good  it gave me goosebumps at times!!

I can understand how this book might not be everyone’s taste, but it’s a good one, a really good one at least for me, it has everything that I need in a great read, everything and then some, I felt goosebumps as I was experiencing the story, I could tell that this one was one that would stick with me for a long loooooong time.

“Whatever happens after this, I just want you to know that this was worth it. You were worth it. You were worth everything.”
