Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review. Usually I don't read book synopsis' at all lol, so I was thinking that this book was paranormal for some reason. And I fell in love with this cover. When I started reading this book I quickly realized that it wasn't paranormal it was contemporary and I very much enjoyed it. It was a nice surprise. I found Saint Sloan to be a quick read because it was very fast paced. I loved the mystery and thrills that the book included. I also loved the twist. The reader thinks that they have the villain figured out, but you don't! The only part of the book that I wasn't jiving on was the religion that was included. But Kelly Martin did the religion in a classy way as to not preach to the reader.
I liked Sloan as a character because I found her to be fairly relatable. I've been in that position where y lose your best friend and then are branded as a "slut" whether you are or not. So I feel for her. But unfortunately for Sloan, everything crossed the line and I feel terrible that she had to go through that. I think that Sloan has a good head on her shoulders and since being "saved" makes pretty good decisions. Especially when it comes to her love life.
I have a feeling that there might be a second book in the process (fingers crossed), because of some of the events that occurred at the end of this novel. I will be checking out more books by Kelly Martin. I would recommend this book to contemporary lovers.
