**This is just a warning for all you good, Catholic/Religious folks out there: Do not read this review or this story if you are easily offended. I walk a fine a line sometimes at what I read and completely understand if the material is too risqué for you. I like to read things that might make some people uncomfortable. Thought you’d like to know before I continue… Thanks for your understanding =) **

I had high hopes for this one. Taboo with a capital T - illicit love between a Priest and a nun and I really thought I was going to get something a bit different

For me the characters failed to deliver in this story - I just didn't get any warmth from them. Its also a story that has been told many times so I suppose I should have known what to expect. I also didn't connect with the authors writing voice in this one - it was too monologue.

Loved this story!! The taboo coupling left me on the edge of my seat, wondering when/if one of them was going to finally slip!

I fell head over heels in love with Father Shane, and wished I was Sister Mary Elizabeth! Watching their forbidden love unfold kept the pages turning on this well written piece.

People fall in love, I don't think anyone is immune to that.

That being said, I think this may have been Twilight fanfiction? Because at one point, Sister Mary Elizabeth calls Shane Father Cullen. I'm perfectly okay with this, but yeah, just a matter of editing. There were a couple of instances where a sentence starts in past tense and then somewhere in the middle it's all in present tense. And a couple of words swallowed.

Dare I say I actually liked this? Yeah, that's why I'm giving it a three-st

Good quick book to read. At times, I thought..OMG, this is so wrong to be liking this. I guess because I was brought up as a Catholic.

Eventually, I knew Shane and Claire had to make some hard decisions.

Great work H.E. Regis. I enjoyed it.

Flipping utterly awesome. It took only took a few hours (maybe) to devour this. After reading a few reviews and I knew I had to add this to my TBR shelf.Not to mention the subject seems so taboo.

Before getting into my view on this I think that it should be said that this story may be found offensive by some Catholic or religious people.

Father Barrett recently transferred to a new parish where he encounters Sister Mary Elizabeth. Both of which are rather young and attracted to the other. Most of

Face palm ! what did I just read ? Haha , I've been wanting to read this book for so long because of the premise , I mean who wouldn't want to read this book ? certainly not me . Now , I discovered that this was originally a Twilight fanfiction so I thought perhaps it's going to be as deep as Dusty (which is another amazing Twilight Fanfic) but turns out it wasn't all that amazing , the plot was rushed , the forbidden relationship didn't last long seeing they gave up their vows pretty quickly , ...more

A friend had this while we were eating lunch at work. I read the first few chapters, to see if would be as bad as it sounded in the summary. And . . . it was! She said she paid $8 for the book, which I thought was overpriced for any book this short.
