Publisher's Summary

USA Today Best Seller!

There are many rules a priest can't break. A priest cannot marry. A priest cannot abandon his flock. A priest cannot forsake his God.

I've always been good at following rules.

Until she came. Then I learned new rules.

My name is Tyler Anselm Bell. I'm 29 years old. Six months ago I broke my vow of celibacy on the altar of my own church, and God help me, I would do it again. I am a priest, and this is my confession.

Priest is a full-length stand-alone with an HEA. For mature audiences only.

Forbidden Romance at its Finest!!

Forgive me father for I have sinned!! I just read the hottest freaking book EVER and I'm going to hell for the wicked thoughts I'm having thanks to Sierra Simone!!!
My God!
This Book was Crazy Sexy!!!
I loved the story. It was original, unique, seductive, risqué, and full of the forbidden.
The pace was perfect, the plot was brilliant and the characters were sensational.
A definite must read!!
Father Tyler Bell has just earned the spot at the top of my List!

He's a good guy but boy does he have a wicked tongue.
Not only did he say all the right things but the inner workings of his mind were even hotter!!

I love how Poppy brought out his beast within.

This story was EVERYTHING!!
I couldn't get enough!

I listened to this on audio and Narrator Jacob Morgan was PHENOMENAL!!!

His voice fit Tyler perfectly!
I couldn't stop listening!!!
I will definitely be listening to this again and again!!!
I loved the book so much that I just ordered the paperback so I can see it sitting on my shelf!!

Sierra Simone has written a story that is nothing like anything you've read before.
She's outside the box entirely. Her writing is the best erotica I've ever read. There was so much depth to this story and the intimacy was perfection!!

Highly Recommend!
Wish I could give more stars than 5 because it's well deserved!!!

Need dry panties stat

Holy hotness! I give this audio five stars of deliciousness. It was a great book to read. Listening to it, with the narrator as sexy as the sins committed by the priest himself makes this audio unbelievable. This is the hottest audio book I have ever listen to and I will definitely go back for more. If you are looking for a great story, with characters you actually like. Intelligent, smart, witty, and funny, this audio has it all. Just be sure your headphones are in place because it gets hot, very, very hot.

Wow! Wow! Wow!

Wow! This story was so much more than I expected!! First of all, being an English major, I really enjoyed how well written this book is as well as the very descriptive and appropriate language, and the details about the church and Catholic religion were spot on. That was one of the things that was most surprising...I wasn't sure how I would feel about this book since it "seemed" like it might be sacrilegious...but the story was so beautiful, such a wonderful love story, and Sierra's language really depicted the angst and struggle Father Bell was going through, that I didn't find myself offended at all, but actually more empathetic towards Father Bell and his struggle (I'm sure many a priest has had this same struggle).

Second of all...Jacob Morgan!! What an excellent narrator!! I don't think I've listened to a book by him before, but I am definitely a fan now!! He really brought Father Bell to life...I could feel his anguish, his love, his heat and I even loved the small bits of humor throughout that Jacob definitely highlighted with his narration. Elena was wonderful as well, but very small parts in the book.

Third....this is hot, hot, hot! So not only is it well written, but the sex scenes are also well written and just ...well...hot, hot, hot!

So...my recommendation is buy this book, use a credit, whatever you have to do. Excellent story and performance!

Sebastian York ... who?!

Jacob Morgan's voice is to "audible die" for! Sierra Simone you can write the missy steamiest love scenes!!! This was very well written and the narrator put the icing on the cake. If you love erotic romance that is not cheesy but well written with great characters... you most listen to the book! At times I thought this was a great book this Christians that needed to know God in a different light but felt bad because it fed my naughty side too. Anyways, loved it!

Story 5 stars, Narration 5 more stars!!!

I LOVED THIS BOOK! I knew going in that this was going to be a great book. The taboo nature of the story made it even better and made if different from everything else coming to audio these days. For me, EVERYTHING about this audiobook was HOT!!! Father Bell & Poppy were like a perfect explosion!! I loved them together, both forbidden to each other but from their first meeting they ignite! I can't even explain how HOT HOT HOT this book was! This was my first by this author and I WILL be stalking her now wanting more books with this kind of heat!

The narration was PERFECT!! Elena Wolfe uses a lower sexy voice in this book and it worked perfectly for Poppy. Jacob Morgan melted me completely, he was the BEST choice for Father Bell!!

Just wow

I really wasn't expecting to live this book so much. Yes the sensuality is hot and angsty. But the story is so raw, the emotions and back stories these characters are living with so complete that to call this erotica would be the wrong classification. There's a heavy dose of erotica perfectly woven with a complex and beautifully written plot that I give this story a perfect five stars. Excellent narration as well.

Poppy is one of the most ridiculous characters...

...I've ever been introduced to. The sheer lengths the story went to describe how perfect she was actually made me chuckle a few times and wonder if she were real or a figment of the Priest's imagination.

Poppy is a rich blue blood humanitarian with oodles of degrees, a perfect body, perfect face and voice, but likes rough sex and was a 'stripper' yet is STILL virginal in some aspects of her sex life, you know, so the dude could be her first. Come on.

She was so perfect that she was given an imperfection (her front teeth) to act as a beauty mark to accentuate her perfectness! It was so over the top. I saw this because she never felt like a character to me, but was an idea that the Priest was chasing and everything she was was molded to his need for her to be that because story.

The reading was phenomenal. Jacob Morgan has a great acting and cadence when he reads and you feel the energy he puts into it when he's narrating. His reading was the only reason I finished the book.

Two super attractive young white people yadda, yadda, yadda, lots of sex, happy ending. Not really spoiling anything. The two characters I enjoyed the most were the old woman who brings him casseroles and his priest friend whom he visits when he needs absolution. Everything else was pretty much par for the course.

Taboo

I loved this story. It's so hot. Tyler the young priest meets Poppy and is immediately captivated by her. He then has to choose between his commitment to church and his lover.

This isn't a story for the faint of heart. The idea of a priest having an affair seems so wrong, and that's what makes this story so captivating. The taboo factor makes you enjoy it and feel ashamed at the same time, much like Tyler and Poppy. I also think the taboo factor and the angst is what made me so invested in this story. Despite their sticky situation, I really wanted them to be able to find happiness in the end. Tyler genuinely cares for Poppy. He is also a man of great faith. I really liked Tyler because of his sincerity. He always wanted to help people, including Poppy. I've seen so many people face these types of conflict on interest during their faith journey and it made him seem real. That's what made the story so believable. I would argue that this is more about someone finding their true calling.

Jacob Morgan is one of my favorite narrators and he was perfect for this story. His voice just oozes passion and charm. We don't hear from Poppy very much but I didn't mind Elena Wolfe's performance.

I need to switch parishes!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This was the hottest book I have listened to in a long time!! I wasnt sure I was going to like this book because of the taboo and the Catholic priest issues in the past. I loved the way it was done. I loved the way they fell in love and I loved Tyler and Poppy together. I also like how they addressed the choice he made in the end.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Priest: A Love Story?

The very first time they made love on the counter...

What about Jacob Morgan and Elena Wolfe ’s performance did you like?

Everything. Jacob Morgan is my favorite. I have everything that he has performed in my library and Elena Wolfe is top notch also, they did a great job together

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES!!

Any additional comments?

There is an editing issue in Chapter 12 (chapter 14 when on audible) at the very end where Mr. Morgan reads a scene, laughs, and begins repeating a scene already played. but it happens only for about the last 3 minutes... its annoying that this was not caught in editing

WOW

What made the experience of listening to Priest: A Love Story the most enjoyable?

This story is BRILLIANT and the narration is also BRILLIANT. I can not fault any part of this book so all of it was enjoyable/

Who was your favorite character and why?

Definitely Father Bell, what a lovely guy, what girl could ask for more. I am sure there must be many women attending confession around Weston, Kentucky.

Have you listened to any of Jacob Morgan and Elena Wolfe ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Never heard Jacob Morgan before but oh my, his is awesome, what a voice and he portrays this character so well. Elena Wolfe is always brilliant in what ever she narrates.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both. I really felt for both of the characters.I am just listening to it a second time, definitely one of the best I have ever listened to.

Any additional comments?

This would make an awesome movie. I would love to see it on Passionflix when it is available. Do yourself a favor and get this book, its worth a credit.

Too much lust, not enough love - 5 star narrators

I'm a big fan of Sierra Simone but on this occasion unfortunately I struggled with Priest. I've had it on my tbr and on my kindle for so long, but I liked it, didn't love it. I love taboo romance, I love reading the struggle, the anticipation, the guilt, angst and the build up to that moment when the two people falling for each other in a forbidden situation realise they can't spend another second apart. Sadly here that second was literally after about one second! It seemed all about lust and dirty hot sex (and it was dirty and hot and I'm all for that) I just need a bit more especially to justify breaking a thing as sacred as a priests vows.

I did like Tyler, he was a good man, kindhearted and caring. The book was told mostly from his POV, but he came across at times more like a horny teenager rather than a 30 year old Catholic Priest. Poppy I never took to. I loved that she was a confident woman, happy with her sexual side, but I didn't believe she had much remorse or guilt for what was a blatant seduction and not much regard for Tyler's vocation. I wanted to throttle her for her actions towards the end.

I listened to the audio book and both narrators were fantastic. Tbh, the voice of Jacob Morgan kept me from dnf'ing, his voice is pure seduction 🔥 I'm glad I didnt stop as the last 30% did pick up more on the tension, risks and consequences.  If you love reading smoking hot erotic, dirty sex, you will love this because there is no doubt Sierra Simone knows how to make your thighs clench and there was a lot of it. However, because I've read and loved some of her other books I perhaps anticipated more depth and character building and perhaps less of the "c" word. This book will be for many of you, we all love different things and that's what is wonderful about reading. I will however be reading more from this author as her New Camelot series is an all time favourite.

Well he definitely uses the c-word far more often than I was expecting. The guy narrating this audio book has such a lovely voice that I think even if he read a terrible book it would sound good . But the general storyline was interesting enough and exactly what You would want from an erotic novel. I really enjoyed hearing the story from a male Perspective. His internal monologue about poppy was really pleasing to hear

Mesmerizing

Absolutely insanely delicious and wicked and interesting and so, so real.
This is a must read.
It has raised the bar for any more romances that I may read.
I have this on Kindle and audio and let me tell you the audio book is so well narrated that you live and feel every moment of Tyler and Poppy's affair. It is a feast for your mind and ears. You will be blown away! A massive round of applause for Sierra Simone, Jacob Morgan and Elena Wolfe.

WOW!

I Originally read Sinner first, and that story, blew my mind, and i decided to go back and read Priest and Midnight mass.
I was going to review Priest before listening to midnight mass, but i thought better of it, as i was kind of disappointed with Priest and how it ended.
After having listened to Midnight mass following Priest, it changed my opinion on my review.
Priest is unlike any book i have listened to. The Story, the depth of the story, the way it's written, beyond amazing. Well performed.
If Elena performed all her books in the breathy, wispy beautifu voice that protrudes through her snippets in the book, she would be up there with my fave female narrators. Jacob Morgan, once again doesnt disappoint, and the heat in the scenes he brings... WOW.
Do yourself a favour, download both books and binge listen.

A very sinful listen

I went into this book thinking it was going to be about a God loving man losing his faith and going down the dark path for a woman.

Instead I was dead wrong and so fricken happy that I was. Well written, just enough spice, and the narration was absolutely perfect for this book. The tone and expression were portrayed in a way that made you want to listen, you felt and understood how the characters felt.

I highly recommend this book!

I love Sierra Simone's work and Jacob Morgan's voice as Father Bell is perfection. it is a story that pulls you in and holds you enthralled from start to finish. It captures human thoughts and emotions perfectly, says the unthinkable, those words we may think but not say out loud. It is raw, real, beautiful, sensual, sexy af and filthy with a HEA.

Excellent book, such an enjoyable listen. It is more than just erotica, the storyline is interesting and I couldn’t stop listening. Felt the erotica was a bit poor man’s BDSM but it worked. Narration is great, enjoyed this book more than I thought I would.

A Deliciously Taboo Love Story

Please check trigger warnings before you read this book. It is a taboo romance involving a catholic priest, which may upset the sensibilities of some readers!!!

~~~~~~~~~

If you’ve never read this author’s work before, here’s a forewarning… Sierra loves to push the boundaries, and her subject matter is usually controversial… but holy hotness… know that once you start reading this book, you will not be able to stop until you’ve completely devoured the whole book!

*
"Whatever happens after this, I just want you to know that this was worth it. You were worth it. You were worth everything..."
*

Yes, the storyline is religiously controversial!
Yes, it pushed all the boundaries, but it’s oh, soooo deliciously forbidden and positively sinful; and Father Tyler Anslem Bell is one hot and kinky priest. 🥵

Riveting, with great Ending

absolutely riveting from start to finish, agree with all comments except the one about the sad ending, it does not have a sad ending. well done, mesmerising and very much a thought and feeling provoking unique storyline. Definately one of the best buys I have made here, very sexy, some hard core language for the easily offended but in context - highly recommended.
