Review: Born Sinner (Se7en Sinners #1) by S.L. Jennings

Posted on


Twenty-two years ago, I was cut from a cold, sodden womb, and cradled in the filth and poverty of Chicago’s concrete arms. Statistically, I wasn’t supposed to survive these streets past the age of eighteen.

Fate had a different plan.

I was bred for one purpose and one purpose only: to unleash death and destruction on my world.

My thoughts are power.

My words are weapons.

Evil created me then grace tried to save me. But first… they tried to kill me.
They call themselves the Se7en. They are sin and salvation, and everything we’ve feared from the beginning of time. And their leader is the deadliest of them all.

He doesn’t lose.

He doesn’t compromise.

And most importantly, he doesn’t distract himself with mortal weakness.

Not until me.

Kill one to save a million.

That’s what he told me when he took me as his prisoner.

Kill one to save a million.

That’s what he’s been trying to tell himself ever since he took me into his arms.

My Review

“He moves in just a fraction closer, aligning his face with mine. Seeing me. He sees me to my soul. He sees all the ugly, all the pain. All the desire kindling within my trembling flesh.”

“He is need. He is passion. He is fire.”

What an amazing, fantastic read. Seriously. This book reminded me of exactly why I fell in love with the paranormal romance genre….

From the moment you pick up Born Sinner, you are sucked into the story. Right away, you know that Eden is different from everyone else. Her entire life has been spent trying to hide her differences from everyone. All Eden has ever wanted was to blend in and be normal like everyone else. She had no way of knowing that one fateful night, everything she ever knew was about to change. Suddenly Eden finds herself in a life she never knew existed. A place where the line between good and evil is blurred. A place where she will finally learn the truth behind her differences and the effect it will have on the entire world. A place where she never saw L coming….

Born Sinner is a captivating read, from start to finish. I loved the world that S.L. Jennings created. I am a huge sucker for Angel and Demon stories, and I have to say, this is one of my favorite ones to date. The story-line was fun and refreshing. I loved this author’s take on the angel/demon world. I loved way that she mixed the contemporary and paranormal elements together. I thought the characters were fun and entertaining. I couldn’t wait to learn more about them. I loved the blur between good and evil and not knowing who you could really trust.

Born Sinner had mystery and intrigue. There was action and danger around every corner. This book is sexy with a hint of angst and romance. It was everything that I could have wanted and more. Born Sinner is my first book by this author and let me tell you, I am hooked. My love and passion for this type of story has been reignited and I am dying, I mean I can not wait to get my hands on the next book in this series to see where this story is going to go next. Fans of Paranormal Romance, you are definitely going to want to check this book out.
