5 beauty is not a sin stars!
Oh my heart I loved this! Yes, when it comes to Tillie Cole and MC books, or any book for that matter, I’m kind of biased cause I’m used to loving everything she writes and when you anticipate a book and it turns out to be fantastic, that’s the best feeling in the world. This one picks up where It Ain’t Me, Babe left off, the club invaded the commune taking Mae’s sisters with them and now, Lilah and Maddie are trying to adjust to this brand new world they know nothing about.
Ky and Lilah’s story, that tiny glimpse was addictive. Ky is the classic MC VP asshole that will not commit to a woman. But usually those are the ones that fall the hardest. And fall he did. #TeamKy ♥
Lilah, Mae’s sister is just as clueless about the world as Mae was but the only difference is that unlike Mae who wanted to get away from a life with the commune and the prophet, Lilah never wanted to leave.
“I wish not to be in this life, Mae. I am faithful to the prophet’s cause and nothing will change that.”
Lilah not only has difficulty adjusting to this new life but Ky’s fixation with her is making her beauty is a sin alarm to go off. That is a huge part of the story. Lilah is basically brainwashed into believing that she’s cursed and this is not like a oh poor you, you’re way too pretty situation; this is a real on going mental and physical abuse that has really made her hate her beauty. And of course Ky’s constant flirting and commenting on it only made it worse. It’s hard to explain the situation to someone that hasn’t read the book but I loved the way it was explained, I felt for the girls and it filled me with rage to read about it.
To say that I loved them would be an understatement, I loved how them falling for each other was effortless and I fell in love with them just as easily. Nothing felt forced or too much, it was just right.

about the author
Tillie Cole is a Northern girl through and through. She originates from a place called Teesside on that little but awesomely sunny (okay I exaggerate) Isle called Great Britain. She was brought up surrounded by her English rose mother — a farmer’s daughter, her crazy Scottish father, a savagely sarcastic sister and a multitude of rescue animals and horses.
