Book Review: With the Father

With the Father by Jenni Moen: I had a choice, and I chose wrong.

I thought I lost everything. But when the smoke finally cleared, I discovered that I wasn’t alone.

Father Sullivan was a force – a living and breathing force, a forbidden desire I couldn’t resist. I didn’t want to resist. But I wasn’t the only one who wanted him, and by all accounts neither of us should have him.

I had decisions to make, secrets to uncover. Both would tear my heart, my life, and what was left of my family apart.

I wasn’t going to take any chances this time around. If I’d learned one thing during my life, it’s that death is the only certainty. It’s a matter of when, not if.

For every action, there is a reaction. For every choice, a consequence. If I hadn’t chosen to live again, I would have never known what life could be like …

With the Father

Lori's thoughts: This book was a lot different from what I expected. I expected it to be filled with sinful, hot, smoldering love scenes. Forbidden love between a woman and a priest. I didn't get that. I expected sexual chemistry that wasn't to be ignored. I didn't really feel that either. I still enjoyed the book and found it hard to put down. I did want to keep reading, because I wanted to what the outcome would be. There is a twist to the book that I didn't see coming. I'm still not completely sure I understood everything. I mean, I get what happened ... I'm just not sure I liked how it happened. A good twist that no one sees coming is always entertaining. I wish it would have ended differently, but I still really liked the book. A little more sizzle would have been nice. A little more forbidden would have made me giddy. All in all, an entertaining read that I recommend. Don't form your opinions too soon into the book about how you think it's going to end. You'll be wrong.
