Back Cover Blurb:
“After the death of her mother, seventeen-year-old Elizabeth Carrington is starting over. In a new city, at a new school, and with a dad she hardly knows, and it isn’t going to be easy. Trying desperately to find her way and cope with her unceasing grief, she finds herself surrounded by a force so compelling, so comforting, so captivating that she can’t deny its presence and soon fears that if it were to leave her, she might lose her very self. But is it all really happening or has her wavering sanity finally found its breaking point?
Michael’s role in this world has been the same for centuries, but now something is different. He is inexplicably drawn to an intriguing stranger so alluring that he can’t force himself to resist her. Is he willing to risk everything to be with her, even falling?
A dark force, hell-bent on destroying any chance of happiness for his arch nemesis Michael, is lurking in League City, TX, and there is no limit to his need for vengeance. How far will he go to seek revenge for his sworn enemy’s betrayal?
Caught in a clash of good versus evil, Elizabeth soon finds herself in the crosshairs of a battle that has been brewing since long before she was even born.”
Sinful is a young adult novel that I really enjoyed. Sara and Staci made the characters come to life and their emotions felt real to me. I could really feel the loss that Elizabeth experienced in losing her mother. I could also sense how close she was to her mother and what that loss meant to her. I also understood how hard it was for her to move away with a father she barely knew, from the life she always knew, while trying to cope with her grief for her mother. It helped her having this strong and comforting presence around. Without it, I think she might have lost her mind.
Then one day Michael appears in the library to Elizabeth and she instantly feels like she knows him and thinks he is very handsome. When she finally decides to walk up to him and talk to him, he is gone!? He then appears again in a park while she is running, and then they finally talk.
Elizabeth eventually learns who he is. Michael is an angel who was there the night her mother died and she finds out that he is the comforting presence she has felt ever since her mother passed on. The bond deepens even more between Michael and Elizabeth and they realize how much they love each other. They spend as much time together as they can and are always thinking of each other. Michael and Elizabeth want more and more time together. They want to be seen in public but it’s not possible since he is an angel.
A dark force appears that causes trouble for the couple. How far will Michael’s nemesis go to destroy Michael and Elizabeth’s happiness? Will Michael give up everything to be with Elizabeth forever?
I really enjoyed this book. I loved the romance between Michael and Elizabeth. I can’t wait to read future books by Sarah Dailey and Staci Weber.
