★ Blurb ★

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.

Told in alternating points of view, Sins of Sevin is a full-length standalone novel.
Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language.
Only appropriate for adult readers
age 18+.

I love it when a book hooks me from the very beginning, and this one grabbed me within the first two pages!  I knew I was in for a fun ride!

Sins of Sevin is a beautifully written forbidden romance that will have you experiencing so many emotions throughout.  There are moments that will capture your heart, some that will take your breath away, and some that are so devastating, it will grab your heart and squeeze.

I am totally in love with this author and her writing.  Ms. Ward has a way of making you want to keep turning page after page and not put her book down until you’ve devoured it.  And, of course, you will love every minute of it.  I finished this book days ago and I am still thinking about it.  She is on my list of ‘Rock Star Authors’ and I would have no problem one-clicking a book from her without even knowing what it’s about.

I had so many favorite parts, I felt like I was highlighting the whole book.  Sins of Sevin will definitely be added to my top reads of 2015!  And easy five hearts from me!


I can't even begin to describe how amazing this book turned out to be!!  In all honesty, after reading the blurb I wanted more.  It took me a bit to get into the beginning because I couldn't quite grasp the family dynamic.  But at about 25% things really picked up for me and I don't think I set it down once after that.  

From the impeccable writing, to the detailed story line, Ward keeps the reader hooked by showcasing every emotion.  And boy, oh, boy did we feel every emotion throughout this book.  The sexual tension was gut twisting in a way that had you longing for Sevin to be redeemed of his many sins and find happiness.  

This book had it all and I would highly recommend to anyone.
5 Hearts for me!!


★ Excerpt ★

He quietly followed me into the dining room, carrying the flatware. The tension in the air was thick as he walked behind me around the oval table, setting down silverware after each plate I’d put down. It was like some weird game of musical chairs where awkward silence replaced the music. The hairs on my back stiffened. We weren’t saying anything, but it was as if I could feel the weight of a thousand words along with the heat of his body so close behind me.

When I noticed he’d just put a fork where the spoon was supposed to go, I switched it. “The forks go on this side, actually.” My hand was shaking. I couldn’t believe how little control I had over myself.

Noticing my nerves, he suddenly placed his hand over mine and whispered, “Stop.”

Chills ran through me. My heart started to beat faster. My nipples hardened. I hated my body for responding to him with equal amounts of fear and lust.

I turned to him, his hand still over my knuckles. It felt like I couldn’t breathe as he just looked at me.

My mother’s footsteps caused Sevin to move his hand off mine with lightning speed.

Mama entered, and we continued setting the table as if our stolen moment hadn’t happened.
