I wasn’t given a choice. Not when I did my first line of cocaine. Not when I became a single mother. But I changed, and every decision I’ve made was to protect myself and my son from my weaknesses—and my past.

Until Jude came along and made me question everything, even my own secrets.

The sins I carry with me can never be discovered. Life handed me broken bits of people and left me to construct my own world, and it’s too fragile to take a chance on Jude Mercer.

We write our own stories.
We build our own prisons.
We weave our own lies.
We commit the sins that bind us.

4 stars
Review by Jen Hagen

Faith is very loyal in attending her weekly NA meetings.  Faith doesn’t speak aloud at the meetings, instead sitting back and letting her thoughts take over all the while understanding the addictions  everybody in that room represents.  She can relate to how an addiction can literally change your life and who you choose to be in life.  Her keen observation becomes unnerved the day that Jude enters the building for his first meeting.  They don’t have a very pleasant welcoming, what with her almost scalding his balls with coffee, but as time progresses they put up a friendly fa├žade.  Faith can see right through Jude and what he’s attempting. 

Men like Jude are dangerous.  Not because of their tattoos or swagger, but because they see boundary lines as optional.  I can’t let the walls I’ve built be breached.  

 It is very important for Faith to keep those walls secure.  She cannot let anyone see who she is as leaving herself bare is not safe.  Her past needs to stay buried.  Jude would be my first choice to let through the walls, but Faith lacks what her name implies.  Jude possess self confidence and he lets nothing stand in his way.  A heavily guarded wall??...psshh…that’s nothing.  He’ll get through that.

Somehow we’re sitting down to family dinners.  He snuck into my heart, and now he’s making himself at home.  

That’s the way Jude is.  His aura is overwhelming and you can’t help not to like him.  His heart is golden and he will help a person out of any situation.  He doesn’t seem to have the addiction issues that plague Faith, so what really is his story?  

Jude hadn’t happened into my life, he’d breached it.  Discovering why might destroy me and the hope for us completely.

Then there comes the plot twist that had me wanting to stand up, stomp my foot and say “I don’t like it.”  Unfortunately for me this brought the 4.5 star book down to 4 stars simply because I didn’t care for the change in the story.  Truth to be told, it made it a little unbelievable and unforgiving.  

I hate him, because he’s never been mine.  I hate him, because I thought I’d finally found something true.  But he’s only an illusion.  I’ve always suspected he was too good to be true.  

Other than this change in the story direction, I enjoyed the book and the writing style.  The author did a fantastic job working past flashbacks into the present.  I was always left guessing with the little information left as clues as to how the story was going to pan out.  When the big reveal came, I was shocked as I did not see that coming. 

Our sins bind us together.   


“Maybe he was already as tightly wound as me, but I can’t help but squirm under his possessive stare. I ignite that ferocity. I’m the storm that unsettles the peaceful blue pools of his irises. And realizing that vanquishes my fear. Because I’ve undone this man.”
“I want to say something but my mouth is empty. Before I can find words his lips find mine instead. He crashes against me, and I’m powerless against his force. He’s washing me out into the unknown and I don’t care if I drown.
My body shapes to his as his hand slides under my ass, lifting me from my feet. I coil around him, instinctively pressing the core of my want against his groin. A low growl vibrates through him and his arms bind me closer.
I want as much of him as he’ll give me. It’s the only need I’m capable of processing and I open to him, allowing his tongue to stroke across my teeth and then massage over mine. It’s an invitation and I RSVP by tangling my fingers into his hair. I grip it tightly, desperate to possess him as fully as he has me.”
When he backs into the kitchen table, we both spring into action, unbuttoning and unbuckling as quickly as our impatient fingers allow. Wiggling off my jeans, I return my attention to his body. I trail my palm over the swirling black ink and then I lunge forward and sink my teeth into his skin.
“Christ, Sunshine,” he grunts, but before I can register it as a complaint, he’s pushed me flat against the table and unsnapped my bra. I move to slide it off and my wrist knocks over a box of crayons.
Our eyes lock as they scatter to the floor and before I can raise the white flag, I’m back in his arms. Jude kicks open the door leading to the garage.
“I’ll fix it later,” he promises, sweeping me out the door. Twirling me around, he barricades it with our bodies. “Hold on.”
“I wrap my arms around his shoulders and cling to him as he frees his dick. I feel its heat prod against my belly. His whiskers scratch against my cheek as his mouth slants toward my neck. “I can’t be patient,” he warns me.
“Don’t be,” I beg.
He doesn’t need coaxing. His hand slips between my thighs and shoves my panties to the side. My bare back smacks against the wood as he thrusts into me. Jude’s chest smashes against my breasts as his weight overwhelms me. I lose myself to the rhythm. To the crash and the ebb. There is only each stroke, and the glorious, violent inevitability of being abandoned and filled.”
