Note: I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This is a series, and it is recommended to read in order to understand each character's story. This is the first one in the series, so start with this one, thank you.

Trigger warnings: Sexual abuse, adult content (not suitable for young children), trauma, domestic abuse, infertility issues discussed, violence.

This book was an emotional rollercoaster to absorb while reading this one. Each main protagonist has their own difficult situations,

I LOVE Magnolia. She is feisty, she is a fighter, she is caring, she is supportive and she is one hell of a woman!

Magnolia’s past is heartbreaking, but she has the three best friends anyone could ask for. I seriously love this group of strong and feisty woman. They have become each other’s family and each other’s rocks from the moment they all met. Throughout Magnolia’s story you could see how protective each of them are and how they will always have each other’s backs. I have so much love for t

“Delivered in Sin”—Nicole Rodrigues [5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️] This is the first book in the Sin and Secrets series, but I would highly recommend reading the prequel novella “RISE” before this to get a better understanding and background of the four main female characters that are part of this series. By day, Magnolia is a labor and delivery nurse, but at night she’s Madam Siren, exotic dancer at RISE, an exclusive gentleman’s club that she co-owns with her three best friends. Magnolia had a rough sta ...more

I absolutely loved Magnolia and Landry! I read the prequel novella to this series, Rise: A Prequel Novella, so I was looking forward to Magnolia's story. Delivered in Sin picks up a few years after RISE left off, however time does not heal all wounds. Magnolia is still struggling to overcome a past that haunts her in this book. In some respects she is a very strong person, she has two established and thriving careers, and amazing home and great friends. In other ways she is dealing with the afte

I read the RISE prequel to this series and have been eagerly waiting for the novels to come out. Book One, Delivered in Sin, perfectly sets up this new series with Magnolia Giordano, a young woman who's given up on love but fate has a little something in store, nonetheless.

The RISE girls, as we see in the prequels, all have heartbreaking backstories which led them to banding together against a wicked man and creating the finest gentlemen's club in Atlanta--RISE. Magnolia (aka Madam Siren) and he

“Delivered in Sin” by Nicole Rodrigues is Book 1 of the Sin & Secrets Collection and was exactly what I was hoping for after reading the prequel “Rise”.

For those of you who may not know, this is a multi author collaboration - Kali Brixton, Shanna Swenson, Cara Wade and Nicole Rodrigues. The series evolves around four best friends who have been through hell and back and are stronger women for it.

This book was everything I was expecting and so much more. The story captivated me from page one and after reading the prequel Rise(which is a must read), I was desperately waiting to find out what these ladies have in store for them.

Delivered in Sin is the story of Magnolia or Madame Siren. This woman has gone through so much. Married at a young age of sixteen, Magnolia was in a relationship without love, that deeply affected her. After years of been free of that relationship, the scars that sh

After reading the prequel to this book I was really intrigued. Delivered in Sin is an amazing book to read. It does touch on the abuse Magnolia endured but we see her rise from the ashes. Magnolia goes on to become a nurse and Madam Siren, in a way I feel as though she has two personalities that is trying to become one. She still has periods where her demons come and haunt her but she does her best to over come them. Then we meet Landry who is a tech nerd and is drawn to Magnolia the first time ...more

Book 1 of the Sin & Secret’s collection has me so pumped for the rest of the books, and gave me everything I was hoping for after reading the prequel. Nicole Rodrigues absolutely nailed Magnolia’s story. I don’t think I could have envisioned a better story line for Magnolia.

Her past is utterly heartbreaking, and she was broken, thankfully she’s always had her 3 best friends by her side no matter what. But then she meets a man, who makes her feel something she hasn’t felt in a long time. A few c

Oh My Emotions! Oh My Heart! And Oh My Landry! The Man Has Been Claimed (By Me)!

Delivered in Sin is Magnolia’s story. Her story is Heartbreaking and Beautifully Heartwarming.
Family pressure and tradition had her married at sixteen to an older man who was physically and mentally abusive. While she was able to free herself from the confines of her husband and family by walking away and building a successful life with her friends her past continues to haunt her when it comes to men and love.

Oh my gawd!!!! What a great way to start of the series! Delivered in Sin is a direct follow up to the prequel novella Rise! I loved loved loved this book! Literally gushing over here!!

Everything about Magnolia and Landry’s story was to die for! I loved how bashful she was as Magnolia but Madame Siren took the show! It was all about her and everyone knew it! She really made something of herself when her family was Smokey against it all.

Secrets are still being kept, lives are still in turmoil but

Delivered in Sin by Nicole Rodrigues

I am voluntarily reviewing this ARC.

Praise for Nicole Rodrigues and this beautifully written, compelling, sexy romance.
Magnolia is a survivor. She and her three friends have overcome horrible circumstances, together. As a unit, they reclaimed what others tried to steal, and opened a wildly successful gentlemen’s club, all the while pursuing the careers of their dreams.
This is Magnolia’s story.
Magnolia and Landry keep meeting, fate getting involved with this

The prequel was heartbreaking and to see the four women back on their feet and in charge made me so happy.

Magnolia is free and back on her feet being a delivery nurse by day and a badass Siren by night. She’s in no way healed from her past experience but she’s coping.
When she and Landry keep bumping into each other and their chemistry is beyond words she’s swept off her feet.

Her past won’t keep her down but she’s not totally free because she’s caught in a web of lies about her family and her pr

The magnolia symbolizes longevity and perseverance. I don’t know if the author knew this but this describes my girl to a T! Magnolia had a rough marriage but she still here and even stronger! A magnolia can also represent feminine sweetness and beauty. Which I think is how I felt every moment reading the story! Nolia may have been sweet but Madame Siren is in charge and luring sailors to their peril with that voice and body! I feel like I’m rambling because there’s so much to say but I don’t wa ...more

Wow! I am totally lost for words... this was just utterly amazing.. I have been hooked since the moment i read the prequel Rise and i was not disappointed with the continuation of Magnolia's story, my heart is still racing from the high i was on reading this and the catalogue of emotions it took me on (I'm an in depth reader so i truly feel the emotions in a great book)

Prepare yourself for wild nights and a heaping helping of girl squad love!

Shelves: romance
This book is romantic, exciting, suspenseful, and one of a kind.

I loved Magnolia's sweetness and strength. Broken heroines are always a go-to for me.

Landry was perfection. Sweet, gentle, funny, and so swoony (everything I expect from Swoon-Queen Nicole Rodrigues.)

This book is the first in our Sin and Secrets collection. A great start to this continuation series.

I'm excited to read Kali's book next.

I finished this book in one sitting it was that amazing! Books where rhe main character was abused in a previous relationship can be hard to read but I personally love how rewarding and uplifting the book actually is. Magnolia's story was hard at times to read but her and Landry's story was beautiful. I loved them together and I loved how protective Magnolia's friends were over their relationship! Highly recommend!! ...more

However, when a confident man crosses her path several times and she gets pregnant, that is when her life begins to get interesting (in the best way). Landry is a sexy nerd and he worships Magnolia.

Magnolia & Landry have a slow build up . Once they get together, there is no stopping there love for one another. Landry was so supportive of Magnolia & all of the baggage she carried. Magnolia rose from the ashes of her past & became a women she could be proud of . This book is part of a series. There are 3 more . This does have a cliffhanger.

Sexy as hell with a mystery behind it; once I dove I couldn't put it down! What a way to start a series!
The main character Magnolia is relatable; she has insecurities but is willing to fight her way past them to get her man. And what a man! Landry is a dream guy: kind, thoughtful, and sexy sexy sexy!

Delivered in Sin was everything I hoped it could be and more. I loved Magnolia’s story. Landry and Magnolia’s story was sexy along with giving you all the emotions. I loved the way the girls of RISE were a family and had each other’s back. I can’t say enough about Landry. He loved Magnolia no matter what she did. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.
