I can’t have Elijah Iverson.
I can’t have him because he’s my older brother’s best friend. I can’t have him because I broke his heart five years ago; because he’s now engaged to someone else—someone kind and dependable who deserves his whiskey eyes, his soft mouth, his fierce intellect.
I can’t have Elijah because I’ve chosen God instead.
The Bell brothers, though . . . well, we don’t exactly have the greatest track record with vows. But I’m determined to do this monk thing right—to pledge myself to a cloistered life and spend the rest of my years in chastity and prayer. But now Elijah’s here. He’s here and he’s coming with me on my European monastery road trip, and between the whispered confessions and the stolen kisses and the moments bent over an ancient altar, my vows are feeling flimsier by the day.
And vows or not, I know in my heart that it would take more than a good and holy monk to resist Elijah Iverson right now. It would take a saint.
And we all know that I’m no saint.
(This is the third full-length standalone in the Priest Collection, featuring Father Bell’s brother, Aiden Bell. You do not have to read Priest or Sinner to read Saint.)

My Review: *****
I thought I was ready for Saint by Sierra Simone, having read Priest, Tyler’s story, and Sinner, Sean’s story, but nothing can prepare you for Aiden’s story.
Aiden has fallen for his older brother Sean’s best friend, Elijah Iverson. The five-year age gap seemed so much bigger when they were younger, but once Aiden was in college, the age difference didn’t matter. What did matter was how they felt about each other, Aiden thought Elijah was the be-all, his everything until IT happened. Now he can’t have Elijah, he broke his heart five years ago, when Aiden chose GOD, Elijah is engaged to another man, one who get’s all his smiles, his whisky eyes, his soft lips, all his attention.
This story is more than MM relationship, it’s takes the reader on a detailed description journey into life in the monastery. It brings to light mental illness, depression, anxiety, grief, life, death, suicide, and true love. It questions your life’s purpose and what it means to actually listen with your heart, but also what’s most important and meaningful. “No darkness lasts forever.”
I was not ready for this amazing tale but it has touch me so deep within my soul that I can’t wait for the next book in the series. Phenomenal work, highly recommended, a must-read!
