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. Then I learned new rules.
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.
***Priest is a full-length standalone. For Mature Audiences Only***
“I was supposed to be a shepherd of the flock, not the wolf.”
As much as I love the illicit taboo of a man of the cloth partaking in the most forbidden of fruit I had no intention of reading Priest. Partly because of my unfailing loyalty and adoration of Tiffany Reisz’s Original Sinners/White Years series which (in my honest opinion) is the perfect blend of taboo and theology. But also because there was this one time I read a book about a Priest and it basically reinforced my opinion that no other book could touch that fantasy taboo that I crave. I would like to amend that statement because while Priest wasn’t perfect it still managed to blow my mind. This was without a doubt one of the filthiest books I’ve read and I LOVED it!
“Sacred and profane were blending and blurring together, fusing and welding themselves into something new and whole and singular, and if this was what love was, then I didn’t know how anyone could bear the weight of it.”
F.M.L. Every single encounter between Father Bell and Poppy was so heavy with want. The sexual tension was a tangible element of the story. And for the record, Father Bell had the dirtiest fucking mouth of any character I have read. Seriously, every time he voiced his desires at Poppy during their encounters I literally thought my panties would combust. He had me blushing on numerous occasions (especially during a moment involving anointing oil) and I’d like to think I am a connoisseur of erotica. If you read this for any reason do it for the sex. That sex was on POINT and one of the biggest reasons why I rated this 4 stars. This is one-handed reading at its’ finest. #SorryNotSorry
“I trailed one hand along her stomach as I walked around the back, facing the sanctuary as if I were beginning the communion rite. Except instead of the body and blood of Christ spread before me, I had Poppy Danforth.”
Usually with erotica I find my favorites have a storyline that is just as intriguing as the sex. While Priest has a pretty solid story behind all the naughty times I did have a few issues. Mainly it was the believability of Father Bell as a priest. Like I said earlier he has a naughty fucking mouth and that translates to his thoughts and he sounded more like a sailor than a priest. It’s not that I don’t think priests are people, too and therefore use swear words but I guess I just expected him to be more pure of thought. I also was confused about Poppy and her introduction into the story. I mean from her first encounter with Father Bell it was as if she was deliberately set out to seduce him. I mean there was a point that I wondered if she was suffering from a sexual addiction. It just felt kind of heavy-handed and less natural. I think that is my problem with rating it higher than 4 stars because the progression of their relationship had a tendency to feel a tad rushed. I also took issue with how quickly Tyler and Poppy fell in love because at that point their relationship was primarily just sexual. But despite these hiccups this is one erotica I can happily recommend. I also really enjoyed this authors writing style and look forward to checking out more of her books!
