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.


“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.”

"Something about you makes me want to confess my sins."

This isn't an easy story but it is one that needs to be told. The Sins that Bind us is a heartbreakingly real story that many people can relate to. Even if I didn't go through this myself I could relate to it. I think more stories like this should be told. I want to thank Geneva Lee for her courage to write such a difficult but very inspirational and uplifting story that I hope will touch many readers. Nobody is perfect and we just try our best to make ourselves and our loved ones proud. 

"Face your past and then let it go."

This story is about Faith who is struggling to let go of her past. She made a home with her son Max and best friend Amie. But she isn't completely happy. The moment she meets Jude she feels attracted to him. The same goes for Jude. Jude is very mysterious and just moved to town. Their first meeting doesn't go well. But they keep meeting each other and Jude worms his way into her life. At this time we still don't know a lot about him but we do get to see more of Faith and what she went through. The flashbacks in between were very essential to the story, and even though they were heartbreaking, they needed to be shown to really understand were Faith was coming from.

"He snuck into my heart, and now he's making himself at home."

One of my favorite scenes in this book were the interactions between Max and Jude. It was amazing to see how they clicked right away. Jude was really good with Max. Also I loved the moments between Faith and Amie, she is this crazy best friend that pushes you to go out more and have fun. Amie has been such a great support to Faith, giving her a job and having her back all these years. I also want to mention that Faith is such a strong character that hasn't let what happened to her make her go a downward spiral. I also love Jude for not giving up, he understood where she was coming from and didn't let her push him out of her life. He was there for her from the moment they met!

"He doesn't sing the words. He promises them. I may be his Sunshine, but as I melt into his arms, I understand that he's the reason I burn."

There are twists in this book that added new layers to the book. It was done really well by the author. The writing was good, there wasn't a moment that didn't grab my attention. Everything fit well together. This is the first book I read by Geneva Lee but it definitely won't be my last. 

"Our sins bind us together. They don't set us free."

"We write our own stories."
