    Not for me

    I was very disappointed and frustrated. There is no way that this would play out in the real world without someone getting killed or at least her husband leaving her. I wanted to take the glock and put a bullet in both Barney and Jen's head by the end - maybe even Danny for being such a sap. If you want to read about a self-absorbed, selfish, manipulative, callous, chronic adultress and homewrecker who is bi-polar and narcassistic who is married to a successful actor that is patient, understanding, faithful, loving and forgiving - then this is your book. Jen seems to ruin everyone's lives - she can't even be selfless with her children. I don't buy for one second that she was "pure" in love with only them - what mother puts her 5 children's futures aside, risks their sense of security, risks their happy lives with their father to continually have sex with her childhood friend/lover. And if that isn't enough she ruins his wife and children's lives by not stopping to think of anyone but herself and her pleasure. People like that have no business being married and shouldn't have kids. Don't expect much - no life lessons, no moral, no point to the story. I kept hoping that it would get better, that somewhere things would make logical sense but the story went nowhere. No resolution, no aha moment, NOTHING! I wish I could have my 6 hours back - at least I didn't pay anything for it. "Someone should have said no" is right - don't make my mistake.

    Super Fun and Sexy "Romance"

    This is a wonderful modern-day romance that doesn't have your typical generic Happily Ever After ending, which I loved since most real life romances in this day and age don't have one. Personally, I was a little angry at Jenny (lead female character) several times, but you can't help but be invested in their relationships while you are reading this book.

    Evocative and Intense

    This story was very evocative and intriguing. The fact that I have problems connecting to stories in the third-person, means I can only honestly say I liked it. I can easily see someone else really enjoying it though. While steamy, sexy, intimate, evocative... I think you get the picture... to an extremely high-degree, it does provide a story of a woman who truly loves two guys at once. Though life is not always glamorously wonderful for Jenny- it is a bit of fantasy for the reader. Who hasn't had to choose between two loves in their lives? Not intended for a younger audience, but for a steamy book that has an intricate story as well- very well done!
    What I Loved About this book:
    The language of this book is so evocative. I'll say it here, before I go into much else that the reader of this book must be a mature adult. The wording itself isn't so graphic, as is the way the words work together. I usually have a hard time connecting with third-person narratives, and at first this was true in Sacred Sin as well, but there are different reasons that the third person viewpoint exists, and the intimacy conveyed in this particular instance is intensified by the third-person outlook.

    Bipolar overload

    Jenny is one bipolar crazy woman. She climbs into her best friend Barney's window as a young teen and begs for him to teach her about sex but it leads to a connection that neither of them can ever let go of even through marriages and children. While Jenny will always love Barney, she loves her actor husband Daniel too and they all have to learn to live with her actions and her condition. Crazy good read but after 600+ pages, the ending seemed kind of abrupt.

    So disappointing

    I read about 6 chapters and im an avid reader who refuses to give up on any book regardless of how slow it starts. However this book mad me so angry switching back and forth between characters. I wouldnt suggest anyone wasting time or money on this book. If i could give it a negative 5 stars I would.

    eh..

    Ididnt enjoy this book....the only reason why I read it was because the cover had the same women from another book...Broken by David Burton which was an awesome book.

    I was confused thinking they may have been related...this book really falls short.
