Reed is very lost. He lives a structured life and tries to pretend he's content in it. It's not until Dominic walks back into his life that he realizes he's been lying to himself for over twenty years. For Reed, it's hard to come to terms with his desires and his religion. He absolutely broke my heart and pissed it off at the same time. His hot and cold, while understandable, was unfair to both of them. Reed does a lot of growing, a lot of thinking, a lot of accepting in this book and it's admirable because the decisions he has to make aren't easy ones. Especially when you know deep down that it's okay to feel the way you do but have yet to come to terms with what those feelings actually mean.
Dominic, oh Dominic is just everything. All I'll say is that if he were my priest I sure as hell would go to church more often than I do. Dominic has loved Reed since they were kids. He spent years hurting for the boy he lost, only to come face to face with him after finally closing off that part of his heart. I felt for him so much. He loved Reed but he didn't want to get hurt by Reed. And I didn't blame him. No one wants to get their heart broken.
These two men had so much going against them. Even though Reed wasn't sure about anything when it came to Dominic, he still followed his desires. He clung to his misguided faith, but in doing so he let it lead him to what was truly important to him. Seeing him learn and grow with and without Dominic was special. Because he was able to get to a place where he realized he could have both. Where he was allowed to have both.
I think that's one of the things that causes me to stay away from the other priest books. The back and forth, the use of faith to push the character one way or the other. While A Taste Of Sin is not preachy at all. It does have some very good points about faith that I am glad are in there. With Reed's struggles and eventual acceptance of himself, the reader can see that it may be possible for them to come to terms with their life. That may not be the intention, but it's there and I am so grateful it is.
Kate Hawthorne wrote a book featuring a rather sensitive subject matter and she turned it into a love story about two men that left me speechless. It was angsty, so angsty I thought I would explode before any of the good stuff happened. It made me cry, in public no less. Besides the fact that Reed and Dominic took their sweet time getting on the same page, this book was brilliantly thought out and smartly written.
A Taste Of Sin is book one in the Secrets in Edgewood series and I cannot wait to find out what else this town has in store for us.
The audiobook was narrated by Christopher Rourke who did a great job. He had a wonderful performance and voiced all the characters perfectly. I had no trouble following along with the story. The audiobook production was well done and really enjoyable.
I don’t often find time to re-read, but I know this one is going on that short list. I couldn’t recommend this read more.
So much indecision and angst between these guys. I worried about the priest issue but I didn’t need too. This author like to push boundaries and excels at it. Nice, satisfying, well done story.

There's real struggles for both men but when they are together the heat jumps off of the page, clearly showing how good they are together but the mind can always cause us problems. I enjoyed the interactions between them as well as with other characters, both positive and negative. The story moves along at a good pace and keeps your attention throughout.
I'm not religious in any way so was a little wary of it with both MC's being involved in their own way but whilst it is important and a part of their daily lives it isn't being shoved towards the reader.
I definitely recommend giving this book a go, I wasn't sure and am so glad I did
