  • This is not for me I regret paying 4.99 for it I see since I bought it, the price of the book has dropped to 3.49 UGH and I should have done my research and seen that majority of the reviews were ARCs I was enjoying the story and willing to look past certain things like Major spoilers even though I did not finish it view spoiler The multiple POVs that got on my nerves The switch would happen randomly middle of the chapter or mid page The heroine stalking the hero while he was having sex with oth [...]

  • 3 Stars I really wanted to like this book It premise sounded so interesting, but I felt detached from the characters some what and I really think a first person POV would have made for a better read.Emma seems lost and like she is living her own personal lie She is numb there is some definite faith issues and they are part of the story line as Emma herself is struggling with as she must hold true to the vow she made.Eric has secrets and he doesn t care who he has in his bed to feed his beast The [...]

  • Received an ARC for an honest reviewA mellow dramatic story of finding love that was once lost.The Righteous and The Wicked made my heart clenched and hurt in a good way I love how love was portrayed in the story I got hooked in following Eric and Emma s story all throughout.At first, I was really doubtful in starting to read the ARC that was beautifully sitting on my reader and when I did picked it up, I never regretted one moment Eric and Emma shares their individual complicated issues and whe [...]

  • ARC courtesy of the NetGalley in exchange for an honest review This is a difficult one to review, It had an interesting angle I haven t come across before and I think ultimately this is what me to put the book on hold.I found Emma although, quiet, lonely and depressed a somewhat likeable character She is a catholic teacher of young students who goes through her day by going through the motions until she gets a new neighbour, Eric He is filled with guilt and self loathing and has a side to his ch [...]


  • I work for the publisher that produced this book.I first read this book when it was entered in a TWCS Competition this book was the winning entrant.I was a judge for the competition and I loved the story from the beginning before it was ever marked to be a TWCS publication and I love it still.There is some head hopping but I m fine with that I actually prefer it, as it gives a complete insider view of a character s thoughts, feelings and motivations which I find deadly exciting I only mention th [...]


  • This is the story of two people that are broken, for very different reasons and who connect and manage to see the truth that lies within them This is a story about redemption and forgiveness About love and acceptance It kept me engaged and curious about how this would all unfold Job well done for this debut book from Mrs Emerson Looking forward to read from her.

  • The Righteous and The Wicked April EmersonReview from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews I ve mixed feelings about this book, parts I really loved but parts just didn t seem right with me Its classed as erotica adult literature and there s certainly a good story and plenty of hot, erotic sex so it wasn t thatnn, it s hard to pin down what it is about the story that feels wrong I ll set out how I feel about the characters, and take it from there, maybe that will help me work it out.So Eric, he s clearly [...]


  • I just finished Righteous and The Wicked and I loved it I can honestly say that this is one of my top reads and I can t see anything topping it for a long time Think of a book that you loved I can tell you that this is better You think I m to confident in that assessment I think not and the only way to know for sure is read it I m going to try a stay spoiler free because I want you to be surprised so here I goEmma is going through the motions of her life Waking up, going to work, cooking dinner [...]


  • Reviews on Passion For Pages I m not sure where to start with this review It was the title that caught my attention, and then the cover and the summary sealed the deal I had to read this book And now as I sit here trying to put my feelings about it into words I just feel confused.The story was good great even I liked the characters I especially liked how dark Eric could be I could have lived without all the religious stuff, but I get that it needed to be in the story because of Emma and how she [...]


  • I found this book confusing, interesting and had a few suspenseful moments The plot idea was what interested me in this book from the blurb, as I read it I still felt that it was a very cleaver plot, great story telling in the writing style but the two things I had issues with were the character development and it felt like the story jumped from scene to scene, never giving me a consistent flow as I was reading It felt like diary entries most of the time This could be just my taste in books, an [...]


  • My Dear Ms.Emerson,Welcome to my world of authors I love so much, I stalk relentlessly I watch all posts, tweets, and new stories Authors are my rock stars and you are my newest star That feeling you might have of being watched, no worries, it s only me You ll get used to it It s your own fault You wrote a story that had my head spinning, my belly churning, and my heart pounding over the underlying angst the characters exhibited at every turn You gave new meaning to good vs evil A decidedly sens [...]


  • ARC supplied by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Please don t get me wrong on this While I really enjoyed the general premise of the book, and was actually compelled to read it in one sitting, I found that there was a general disconnect with the characters and with the flow of the story I can understand the Catholic Angst of wanting to do the right thing and avoid temptation, but for some reason or another, it seemed as if the writer was a little heavy handed with Eric s constant refer [...]
