I will review this anthology as an whole, I don’t think it serves any purpose to wade through each story, after all you are either going to read them all or you’re not and if you are reading this then I would anticipate that you are veering towards getting stuck into the stories anyway.
The 10 stories are penned by some talented authors, but make no mistake this isn’t a subject matter that everyone will be happy in, only you know if this is your happy place, so make your judgement and stick by it…courage in your convictions ladies…please. These author hold nothing back.
I read the anthology from cover to cover and I can say that I enjoyed some stories more than others but there were none that completely turned me away, I found them interesting if that is the correct word.
The sanctity of the covenant that the characters had made with their god and the conflict that, that had with their sensual and sexuality was a moral dilemma that picked away at my brain as I read their stories and while the concept and taboo nature of the events that took place were enough to not only hold my attention but have me questioning why it was holding my attention.
If this is your thing, then this might just be the collection for you. Am I glad I read it, yes I am. Would I recommend it, again the answer would be yet but my caveat would be that enter with your eyes open because if you don’t, you won’t be alone in the dark for long.
Wow. I have to start off with – I’m not particularly religious and I believe that even men, and women of the cloth to be human and as such, will never escape human needs. I find it disconcerting that we could hold certain people responsible for denying their humanity.
This book consisted of ten stories, each with a different approach/outlook but following the same theme. All men and women are created equal, after a fashion. Each story was well edited and flowed with a great pace.
To review each one in turn would be to give away key plot points but each author is certainly deserving of notice.
In Genuflect, by Sonni de Soto, the author has a distinctive style of writing that incorporates her main character’s reasoning and feelings into action. I have to admit, this is the first book of its kind that I’ve read. It was wonderful.
In The Undoing by Piper Denna, the author unfolds a story that is both heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. I could easily see something similar happening in a real-life situation. There is a real-world feel to her characters.
In Temptation Follows by Torrance Sene, the author throws in a bit of impact play. Wow. She didn’t lose the flavor of the plot, just incorporated it a natural way…Yep, a natural way. I would definitely read this writer’s work again.
In Absolution by Charlotte French, the author brings in a bit of the supernatural, again, like the rest, done in a tasteful, flowing story that kept you enthralled.
In Father What-A-Waste by Bronwyn Green, the air crackled with romance between the two main characters. I couldn’t have put the book down during that story even if I’d wanted to.
In Shelter by Leandra Vane, this story was a hoot. You couldn’t have found two more distinct characters on Earth. But the story worked, and in a wonderful way that brought the characters to life.
In Taking Mary Beth by Mira Stanley, the author takes a ride on the wild side, even considering the subject matter. What wonderful characters she created from a real-life type scenario. Another HEA that you wouldn’t expect.
In Succumb to Temptation by Jordan Monroe, the author captures both the infatuation of a young girl and a new priest. Well done.
In Sin Bin by HK Carlton, the author captures the heartbreak of remembered love and flows into a second-chance with a twist I hadn’t seen coming. I’ve read this author’s work before and again, she certainly doesn’t disappoint, but sets the bar rather high for others.
In Down on My Knees by Jillian Boyd, the story, from a female’s religious perspective, provided an interesting insight. Another story that flowed well from taboo into reality.
Each of the stories detailed the mind’s ability to rationalize and come to grips with the character’s humanity in a way that was well written and made for a wonderful read.
The first time I’ve read a religious, taboo, kind of book. It is well worth picking up and reading.

This is most definitely a taboo subject and not everyone is going to be interested in reading this. However, it is a very good compilation of stories written by some incredible authors.
Each story has it's own story line and characters plus each one is different and you have the opportunity to read stories that teeter on the morale of both men and women in the clergy. NOTE:All characters are of legal age Is it taboo? Yes most definitely TABOO but if that is your thing then this antho is one for you to grab onto and enjoy.
I read every story from every author and I was impressed with ll of them...I will not give away specifics of the stories as it will be your job to grab this and read them for yourself!!
I volunteered to review an Advance Reader Copy of this book for Rockstar Book Muse
