4.5 Stars

I wasn’t given a choice. Not when I did my first line of cocaine. Not when I became a single mother. But I changed, and every decision I’ve made was to protect myself and my son from my weaknessesand my past.

Until Jude came along and made me question everything, even my own secrets.

The sins I carry with me can never be discovered. Life handed me broken bits of people and left me to construct my own world, and it’s too fragile to take a chance on Jude Mercer.

We write our own stories.
We build our own prisons.
We weave our own lies.
We commit the sins that bind us.

 Faith has been through a lot in her life.
But now she's living a pretty normal and happy life in Port Townsend
She's working and living with her best friend Amie and she's a great mom to her deaf 4-year-old son Max.
That's all she needs and wants.

...the less people I let in, the less chance I'll be hurt again.

But then she meets HIM at an Narcotics Anonymous meeting in town.
She hates him as soon as he opens his mouth.
Well, not really, she's more like instantly in lust with him.
But she can't have a guy in her life....can she?
She could become addicted to this guy - and another addiction is not something she can allow herself to have....

What will happen to Faith & Jude?
Will there be a HEA????
Will Faith's or Jude's secrets destroy everything?

I'm not spoiling anything!!! ☺



I really had no idea what to expect here.
I only knew Geneva from her british royal series.
And this was soooo completely different.

We have this broken but strong heroine.
With all that baggage in her past.
And now she's just trying to live her life as normally as possible.
But then all that changes when she meets Jude.
Who has just as much baggage...but we don't really know what has happened in his past...

It was really interesting to see how those two completely different people find their Happily Ever After with each other....

There's LOTS to overcome first, of course....
But I really loved seein them fight for it!

THE SINS THAT BIND US was a very personal book for Geneva Lee. And it shows - it's really full of emotions and angst and love and loss ... just read it - you'll love Faith & Max & Jude ! ♥


ARC received for an honest review

Wow - what a ride  was taken on with The Sins That Bind Us.

This is the first Geneva Lee book that I have read, but I can tell you now that it will not be the last.

Faith and Jude's story is raw and gritty.  Please remain seated and leave arms and legs inside the carriage, as you are going to be taken on an

Secrets, lies, half-truths - they all come out in the end, and it is a bit of a shot in the dark how things will go.

I really enjoyed this story.  The fears, the worries, the feelings of helplessness leap off the pages.  As much as it hurt my heart and maybe, just maybe made my eyes leak, I couldn't put this book down as I wanted, no needed to know what happened next.

The scene stealer in this story is definitely little man, Max.  He reminds me so much of my nephew when he was that age, going through some similar kinds of issues.

Now, off to find something lighthearted and breezy to read!
