Maddie (Bookaholic_Dreamer)

Another FAVOURITE BOOK read of 2021!

I will admit when I first started reading the story, I was a little lost and confused. Mainly because of how the story changed between chapters 1 and 2, so I ended up going back and re-reading it to finally understand.
I did get a little lost again in the story a few more chapters in, which had me unsure if I would enjoy the rest of Saint. But BOY OH BOY was I wrong as HELL because this book was just WOAH!

I hones
What is the truth and what is the lie??
Adekine is found by 4 men who are out for vengeance or justice. No one knows.

She takes care of her father who in a retirement type home.
Adeline is a chef. She lives in an apartment with some crappy girls. She is broke.
The men find her and keep her.

They involve her in their “justice.”
I am not sure what to think about the ending.
I think this the first time a twist has turned me off from a story.
It was interesting, but not sure how you recover from it. (view

Holy Oh My Gosh!!! Must Read

This book had so many twists and turns. The ending shocked me to my core. I did not see that coming at all. My mouth is still wide open. I loved the characters and what is going on throughout the book. Adeline
and Saint meet, their instant attraction grabs you as the reader and makes you want to read faster to see where their story will go. These two both have pasts, that make them perfect for each other, but also make them question if their pasts will get in the way

You’re a queen, Adeline Redgrave, and you’ve finally met your king.

Wait what the hell did i just read?!!

Ruby Vincent has completely outdone herself with Saint, book 1 of the Saint and Sinners series. This is totally unlike any of her other books I read and I FREAKING LOVED IT. I’m actually blown away by how amazing of a job she did with this.

Addy, AKA Bunny, witnesses something she shouldn’t have. Now, the Merchants, an up and coming gang in Cinco City, have taken her to live with them. This st

Oh guy’s this book was AMAZING!! I loved it so much and I didn’t want it to end!! I honestly cannot wait for the rest of the series! I want to learn more about all the characters, there’s still so much I don’t know and questions still left unanswered.

I’m not going to lie the first chapter threw me off and for the whole book I kept wondering who they were! As the book went on I began to learn more but I was still hanging on the edge of my seat wondering how it all ties together. And then more th

This book was phenomenal!!

I stayed up way too late reading this because it was not what I was expecting at all! It was full of mystery and suspense, twist after turn with me not being able to predict a damn thing!

The sexual chemistry was off the charts, the plot was original and had me hooked and that fucking ending left me tossing my kindle so far across my room because I was so confused, mad and needing more words.

I'm surprised and not surprised by the plottwist?! does that make sense? no. but it is how it is.

I already had the feeling that Addy might hide more things than her POV let us know. some kind of mafia princess vibe, I had for a moment while reading...
now I seriously need the second book!!

So far I actually like all four guys. Baris/Brutal is still my fave. Followed by Killian/Cash and Saint. I don't know enough about Mercer and I hope we'll get to know him, Baris and Killian more in the second

Twisted in the best way! 💙

Oh wow, that ending! 😯🤔

I was so into this story and the characters. I was on the edge of my seat and nervous about what would happen next.

Saint is the craziest character ever. But he pulls you in and I couldn't get enough of him.
I read one part and laughed. I thought to myself, this dude is freaking savage!

One word kept popping up throughout this story. I was desperate to find out what it meant! And yeah, I kinda did and I'm sure about it. The guys grew on me and I rea

I absolutely loved Saint! This was another brilliant book by Ruby Vincent. I first discovered her with her academy series, which are phenomenal. I fell in love with her writing style, great characters, and engaging storylines. And this foray into a darker, grittier, more adult world of mafia and gangs and dark romance could not be a more appropriate direction for her writing to go. I mean, this book is fire personified!

Where do I start? Let’s begin with our FMC, Adeline. I absolutely love strong

6/5 stars EXTRA STAR READ. I don't know where to begin this book is absolutely amazing, masterfuk. It will suck you in from the beginning and not let go.

It has an amazing plot it balances the romance and plot very well. It focuses mainly on Saint and Adeline's relationship however it is an RH and we do get a lot of interaction with the other guys it's forced proximity after Adaline witnessing something she shouldn't and also having crazy chemistry with Saint .

You will get to know and love all

This was a total departure from other Ruby Vincent reverse harem novels I’ve read before and I definitely want more!

Saint was full of constant action and kept me guessing about where it was going to go next. Addy and the Merchants (Sinjin, Cash, Brutal + Mercer) meet in a really strange setting and keep finding themselves in out of the ordinary situations as they work jobs and try to take down the Kings. This book is definitely a gang/takeover/violence story with the romantic elements weaved in

I'm conflicted about Saint, the first book in Saint and Sinners series by Ruby Vicent. Usually i'm pretty fond of the author's books, but I had some difficulty getting into this one. Mainly, Adeline was a huge problem for me. I stated that before in another review, but I severely dislike hypocritical characters and she was one of the worst. I wasn't connecting with her from moment one, and during the book her trying to force a "real relationship" out of the guys bugged the hell out of me. I know ...more

First, let me say that my favorite book is Alice in Wonderland. Why does that matter? Because Sinjin Bellisario reminded me of the Mad Hatter and the Tea Party put together. The man is brilliant chaos, and I could eat him up.

Ruby Vincent's Saint is a bit different from her academy books in that she's taken a dark path, and I like it. Adeline Redgrave is a struggling chef trying to make it in a crap situation. She can barely make rent, much less pay for the care for her father. When she sees som

This reverse harem story is about The Merchants (Sinjin, Cash, Brutal and Mercer), four hot and ruthless boys and the fierce and sassy Adeline Redgrave taking place in Cinco City. The chemistry between the main characters is amazing! Each ch

If there is one thing about Ruby Vincent, it’s that her books suck you in and make you not want to put them down. This book is no exception.

The story is told through 1 of the 4 guys POV (Saint) as well as Adeline’s. I dare you to not fall in love with him. There’s something about his brand of crazy that I was really feeling. There are 3 other guys in this band of merry men and from the interactions we got, they have stories to tell that I want to hear (especially Brutal’s 😍)

I don't know how to rate this book, or how to put into words what I just read. I actually gave up at 87% and didn't even want to finish, but I slept on it, and the next day i had a change of heart. I'm glad I did because all my confusion has now doubled! There was a lot of moments I didn't understand between the merchants helping ppl, and them wanting to rule the city. It's like a gang ready to take over the criminal underworld with robin hood complex. And then addy! Well I was downrigh

This book was incredible and I'm already itching for book 2!! The prologue confused the heck out of me, as it's relevance isn't really known until later. I loved the carefully timed chapters in Sinjin's POV and how each man had their own quirks (though I'm guessing we'll get more insight on each guy in the other books?). Adeline is a fantastic FMC. The biggest and best part of this book, though? THAT PLOT TWIST. Normally a twist happens and you can easily see that it makes sense right away but t ...more

Great start of a new series

I had this sitting in my kindle library for a couple weeks before starting. To be honest I had no idea this series was coming until it showed up, but I like Ruby Vincent books. I honestly had no idea what to expect of this series.
Now that I've finished book 1, I'm really looking forward to the next book. Different from Ruby's other recent books as this one is neither school or uni based, but rather the adult world of gangs and crime.
I definitely did not see the twist

Wow!  I could not put this book down, it kept my attention from beginning to end.  I've read other books by Ruby Vincent but this one is by far my new favorite  It is an action packed reverse harem with a headstrong witty female and four sexy stubborn guys.  This book is told from multiple points of views, which I love.

Epic. Read this book now!

It’s very difficult to find a strong and competent FMC driven series these days. Saint has this in spades. What a fantastic opener to a series that promises to keep you pining for more. Interesting and hot male characters that a thinking person finds intriguing as well as panty melting. This is an extremely well written and nuanced novel that perfectly sets up a storyline that will surprise you. Buy it now & then join me in the anticipation of the next installment. This

Oh how I love Ruby Vincent! She never disappoints. This book was so dang good. The characters were all original and the plot was non stop action. I'm going to need an Ambien to sleep so I can stop thinking about how long I have to wait for book 2. This book gives you just enough information about the characters to keep them interesting and withholds enough to keep them both mysterious and complex. Nothing is better than a strong FMC.

What a start to a new series! This story had was dark, edgy, sexy, packed with action, angst and WTF moments.....I just don't know how Ruby can pack so much into one book and still leave me wanting more!!
That ending blew my mind completely, I think I had to 're read it about 5 times before it started to sink in....and yet I'm still shocked. I honestly thought I knew where the story was heading and now.......well I do not have a clue!? My head is seriously blown at the moment....

I was not expecting this book at all. I have read Ruby Vincent books before and she is always able to capture you with her writing. I don’t now why I expected this to be any different but after the first chapter I literally said out loud, “Wait, what?!” Then that ending, just wow. I actually don’t know the last time I was shocked with an ending.
I love the characters and the story had so many twists, turns and questions. I can’t wait for the next installment of this series. Highly recommend this

First thing I have to say is Ruby is a master of catching you off guard. This book was so much more then I expected. It’s a roller coaster of craziness that I never wanted to get off of. Adeline and her guys Sinjin/Saint, Cash, Brutal and Mercer. This is the first book in the series and I can not wait for what’s next. This is an angst filled, intense story that has so much more to give us. You will not regret reading this book. It’s addictive and amazing and I don’t want to wait for the next boo ...more
