4.5 Stars

From USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Emma Scott, comes an emotional paranormal love story of passion, sacrifice, and the soul-deep love of a lifetime...more than one.

Shy, introverted Lucy Dennings lives a quiet little life in New York City, working for a nonprofit and keeping to herself. Every afternoon, she goes home to her empty apartment and Edgar, her houseplant, and every night, she loses herself in the pages of her beloved romance novels. Her lonely heart seeks solace in tales of passionate, enduring, all-consuming love, but more and more, Lucy feels she's not just reading for pleasure but searching for her a lost piece of herself in the pages. As if she once touched something beautiful but it's been ripped away.

Until one day Lucy discovers a dead body in the alley behind her apartment. Even if it's too late, her first instinct is to help.

Her second is to run.

Because the dead body isn't so very dead, and suddenly, her little world isn't so little but one in which dreams feel like memories, "inner demons" actually lurk in dark alleys, and a beautiful creature of darkness with amber eyes and wings like night might hold the key to what her heart has been aching for...if she doesn't fall down the path of eternal damnation first.

Lucy + Casziel

Lucy has been pretty sad and lonely since her dad died months ago. She works at a nonprofit Ocean rescue place and only has one friend - who's working in London. She dreams of falling for prince charming like the girls in her beloved romance novels.
Then she meets Casziel. Well, it wasn't the meet cute she was hoping for. And he's probably kinda the opposite of a prince charming. But he needs her help.

What will happen with Lucy + Casziel
Will there be a Happily Ever 'After'?

Huh. Well. I loved it. But! 🀣
I'm usually not a paranormal romance reader at all. Every few years I might be caught reading a Black Dagger Vampire book, but that's about it.
But this was an Emma Scott book, so I just had to read it.
I almost gave up before the story even started! LOL! We get this glossary right at the start with a million expressions and names and whatnot paranormal things. But it wasn't too bad - you didn't really have to memorize them all. 🀣
But the story itself - while still too weird and paranormal for my usual tastes... it was still very adorable and sweet and heartbreaking and funny.
You keep hoping for a happily ever after all through the story, even though it doesn't look too good for our darlings.   
I really liked reading it.
So if you're like me - scared of demons and sh*t - don't be! Read it. If you just 10% like Tom Ellis as Lucifer - READ THIS!

And we even get a second book with this 'buddy' of Casziel's ... I'm really hoping I already know who he'll fall for! GIMME!
THE SINNER was a beautiful and heartbreaking paranormal love story! Real love never dies - even if it takes millenia... Please run to your nearest amazon for your own Cas, because this one is MINE!!!
