Book Review - Sinful Urges
Follow the confessions of Juan and Maria as they fall prey to lust at first sight. Can they stop themselves before it's too late, or will they become victims of their own sinful urges?
A new neighbor sends Juan running to confession to rid himself of the lustful thoughts he experiences. Each confession becomes more erotic, more sinful than the last. Can Juan stop himself, or will he give in to the desire that threatens his very faith?
The man across the street causes Maria to question her own morals. When she seeks out a priest for confession, she weaves a tale of exotic kisses and stolen moments. How can Maria find sanctuary in her prayers when her body demands she finds solace in her neighbor's arms?
Sonia Hightower takes you on the erotic journey of Juan and Maria as they fight temptation and lust. As told through the eyes of a priest who hears their steamy confession, we learn of Juan and Maria's sinful thoughts. Juan and Maria are married but not to each other. As each one confesses, the story unfolds until you reach the shocking twist at the end. They both try to fight their urges as is evident by their confessions and I have to say I felt for the priest as he tried to steer them on the right path.
Sinful Urges is not what you would expect, not by a long shot. This story unfolds in an unconventional and, in my opinion, brilliant manner. The moment I started to read it, I could not put it down. The tension built much like a seduction, from the first caress to the mind-blowing climax. There was even well placed humor woven into the fabric of this book. The sexual tension crackled as they struggled not to succumb to temptation. The ending was so unexpected that I had to read it twice.
This book stayed with me and I wanted to know more about the characters, their back-story, and their motives. I found myself completely invested in them. I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading more by Ms. Hightower.
