A Lesson In Thorns by Sierra Simone

Well, Fuck Me. I know that technically you aren't supposed to curse in reviews but I feel like it is necessary for where my mind is at with this book. I swear I haven't read a book this dirty in a LONG time and it was absolutely devour-able. I read the first chapter of this a few months ago when it first came out and I JUST got around to reading the rest of the book and HOLY HECK GUYS. I should really read the synopsis before I dive into a book but honestly this was one for he best blind dive in books i have read, Ever. Hands down. Also, Now I am DYING for the next book and just went and bought Sierra's entire backlist. Can't help it. IM going down the rabbit hole and don't worry, I have no desire to be rescued.

When librarian Poe Markham takes the job at Thornchapel, she only wants two things: to stay away from Thornchapel’s tortured owner, Auden Guest, and to find out what happened to her mother twelve years ago. It should be easy enough—keep her head down while she works in the house’s crumbling private library and while she hunts down any information as to why this remote manor tucked into the fog-shrouded moors would be the last place her mother was seen alive. But Thornchapel has other plans for her... As Poe begins uncovering the house’s secrets, both new and old, she’s also pulled into the seductive, elegant world of Auden and his friends—and drawn to Auden’s worst enemy, the beautiful and brooding St. Sebastian. And as Thornchapel slowly tightens its coil of truths and lies around them, Poe, Auden and St. Sebastian start unravelling into filthy, holy pleasure and pain. Together, they awaken a fate that will either anoint them or leave them in ashes… *** From the author of the USA Today bestselling New Camelot series comes an original fairy tale full of ancient mysteries, lantern-lit rituals, jealousy, money, murder, sacred torment, and obsessions that last for lifetimes... ***A Lesson in Thorns is the first of four books in the Thornchapel series.***
