Sins of Sevin Penelope Ward Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

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?

It was set in stone. Elle and I were getting married. After years of rebelling against everything good and wholesome, I finally gave in and took up with a nice girl.

After a long-distance relationship, I moved into her family’s guesthouse so we could spend time together in the months before the wedding.

Elle was unlike anyone I'd ever been with. She was so innocent, and I had to respect her choice to wait until after we were married to have sex.

I’d accepted that as my fate--even learned to control my desires.

Until I met her…the one.

That was when restraint became a problem…especially since “the one” wasn’t Elle.

It was her sister, Evangeline.

And I was screwed.

Told in alternating points of view, Sins of Sevin is a full-length standalone novel.

  • Sad sad story

    By Zelda Rose
    Very well written but eternally sad. His name should have been Job. If you read to feel sad emotions this book would s for you. If you read to share characters happiness. Skip this one. It’s a dark book with a sad story from beginning to end.

    Can I give this more stars? This is one of the best stories that I've heard. I listened to this one on audio. I have never read anything with so.much.angst. It's a forbidden romance, which are my favorite stories. It's an interesting concept on arranged marriages and religious devotion. Sevin is looking to get out of the clutches of his stepmother when he is presented an opportunity to take over a family business. The catch is that he must court and subsequently marry his daughter Elle. Sevin starts his journey onto his new life when he meets a woman that captivates him. They are two peas in a pod. Then he finds out that she is Elle's sister Evangeline. Just when you think you have a handle on this story, BAM! you are thrown a curveball. I was left completely breathless at the end by this love story.

    It's an captivating love story for sure. You just keep reading and hoping for the best . . . Right. . . Like all fans of romantic stories. It not as expected but it's a great Love Story. I appreciate the struggle although I didn't think I would. I don't want to spoil it but I do want to say it's worth reading.

    A complete story. A standalone romance. A forbidden love story. I knew all this going in and I was still gut-wrenched, heart-broken, frustrated, happy, slack-jawed, and speechless in turns. Sevin is fighting the bonds of a devoutly religious family (read as bible bashing step-mother) and makes his escape by the way of an arranged marriage (of sorts). The bride-to-be, after all the proper courting and chaperoned time together is the daughter of his fathers friend and this arrangement is his ticket out of his own personal hell. Elle is a pretty, quiet woman with no aspirations beyond being a good wife and mother. That is he goal and more power to her. It's not about judging the dream but achieving the dream. When Sevin meets Evangeline, Elle's sister, for the first time the connection he has never felt with Elle or anyone is overpowering. It leaves him questioning, and her heartbroken when she realizes this is the intended husband of her sister. This story is complicated and deep, and I couldn't put it down. My own brief synopsis above barely covers the first tenth of the book. The characters are dimensional and flawed and Penelope has really hit it out of the park with this story. It is so different from the usual romance tales - it was refreshing. And don't get me wrong - I blog about books because I LOVE the usual romance tales too. But the occasional outlier is a gem, and Sins of Sevin is one of those gems.
  • Okay to read

    The book was okay. Not what I expected. There should have been a better ending for it. I thought the main character was weak. I don't know how she could give her child away. Selfish. Overall, it was alright.

    I really did love the book. I mean I woke up at 430am to finish reading where I left off at 1am. The characters are fabulous. You fall in love with Evangeline and Sevin. I'm disappointed how quickly it came to an end. There was so much to the story for it to have ended as quickly as it did. So with that being said, there was much to be desired with the ending. Will I reread this book? Most definitely.
