There are angels and demons at war inside my head.
I had it all figured out: finish high school, attend seminary and finally answer my calling of becoming a priest. What I hadn’t counted in the equation was her.
The girl who was always out of my reach. The girl who still makes me lose my breath with just a look.
Little did I know she would become my temptation and vice, and quite possibly, my ruin.
Now I’m standing at a crossroads, and my head is a battlefield. How do I choose sides when it means losing a part of who I am?
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
➳An author filled with so much hidden potential that I did not see coming in this compelling and forbidden romance, Autumn Grey has made me question my definition of “angst”…
➳Everyone who knows my novel preferences knows that forbidden romances are those kind of romances that are very rare for me to say “wow! This was one HELL of a story.” The reason being is because they are so rare to find. There is a certain extend, a certain level that author must acquire and write about when it comes down to the forbidden “fruit” of romance characters. For me, Autumn has outdone herself when it comes down to Sol and Gracie. Oh god, I needed help standing up after reading that intense, first, make out scene because of how heated everything was, how perfect it all just seems to be because Sol and Gracie are just meant to be. And because in every forbidden romance, there needs to be an obstacle that makes it the forbidden, Sol is the one who encounters himself in a situation that he so desperately wants to elevate and and let the temptation of Gracie be something he can get over. But sinful thoughts are what makes this want-to-be priest turn into the very wrongful but at the same time, rightful path of being emotional for Gracie;
“I’m not sure whether I love her or hate her. I don’t know if it’s myself I should hate for allowing her occupy my mind, or if I should thank God for giving me the ability to love her so much that I’ve made an altar in my head of the memories we shared…”
➳Honestly, when it comes down to Sol my heart cannot stop swooning at how romantic he is. He is that one male character that you read about, and he has a past that makes you want to cuddle said character, never let it go and just spoil him with lots of love and beautiful babies and orgasms…
➳I’m just saying, there is so much tender love when it comes down to Solomon. Than Gracie comes into the picture, a smart girl who has had a past of her own that only can seem to decipher. The beauty behind that is that Gracie has this wall blocking her heart, but she slowly breaks it down because of Sol. His mind, actions, and feelings towards her are what makes this forbidden romance so ideal to the eye of a romance reader as one that MUST be read. Not many can agree, but in my opinion there I no denying that this is one heck of a story that has to be given at least a chance.
➳The pure innocence that is portrayed from Sol and Gracie is one that also had me curious as first, but slowly made me fall head-over-heels for Sol. His heart just seems to have the ideal combination of pure manhood, and also a possessive alpha that only wants what is best for his mate and one true love. There is a serious power of chemistry between these two individuals, making their romance so palpable and undeniable to the eye of the reader.
➳Overall, Autumn has out-done herself with this captivating and thrilling romance novel. Can you tell that my hands are itching for book two? And there is a book three as well… May the lord be with me because I cannot wait long to see what happens next!

Autumn Grey is a hopeless romantic and loves stories with HEA. She is the author of the Havoc series (Havoc, Obliterate, Mend), Fall Back Skyward and Breaking Gravity. And just like her characters, she is quirky, sometimes funny and definitely flawed. She writes sexy contemporary romances full of drama, steamy kisses and happy ever afters.
