Sin and Supplication By: Ki Brightly, M.D. Gregory Narrated by: Conan Kennedy

We have another audio review from Leseitger, this time for Sin and Supplication by Ki Brightly and M.D. Gregory. Here are their thoughts.

From the blurb:

A Murderous Past

Father Gian Sabbatini is a priest who can’t outrun his sins, but he tries to avoid his family and their mob ties. He does all the good he can for the people of St. Loren, Louisiana, to make up for the criminal life he once led. Gian’s family loves to remind him that no matter how many people he helps, there is still blood on his hands, and on the money in the church coffers.

An Angel Who Needs a Rescue

Phoenix Crawford doesn’t know who he is anymore. Due to seven years of daily abuse, he only lives in the moment to focus on staying safe. After a fight with his partner, Phoenix is left homeless and has no idea how he will survive with no money and nowhere to go. Luckily he stumbles up the steps to St. Michael’s, and Gian offers to take him in after learning of his predicament.

Healing Devotion

Phoenix loves his new life and opens up to Gian, despite the mental health issues he is dealing with, and it doesn’t take long for Gian to consider leaving the priesthood because Phoenix makes him want a relationship. Kind and quietly helpful, Phoenix goes about his days assisting Gian at the church in between rebuilding his life. But Gian’s family catches up with him—the mob never lets a man go. As Phoenix delves into his repressed memories he needs more help than ever, but is Gian up to the task of keeping Phoenix safe? And what if the person Phoenix needs to be saved from is Gian? 

Phoenix starts out in a bad relationship that leaves him in mental tatters, but he gets the support and love he needs from Gian. Against all odds, they have a happily ever after!

Lesetiger's Review:

Phoenix is abused for years and then left on the doorstep with nothing but the clothes on his back. In his distress, he flees to the nearest church, where Father Gian finds him and takes care of him. Phoenix is scared, innocent and absolutely sweet.

What has happened to Phoenix is heartbreaking in itself. He trusted a wrong man too quickly and now he needs to slowly find the confidence to take control of his own life again. Father Gian is just the man to do it, even if he has his own battles to fight with his criminal family.

The storyline was different than I expected and I loved it. I was quickly captivated by Gian and Phoenix's storyline and I liked Gian's protective nature towards Phoenix. Of course there are some gray areas in this story, but that worked well for me and I was very entertained. I'm already looking forward to more stories of Sabatini family members, not all of whom were likable in this book, but that makes it all the more interesting.

Conan Kennedy did a great job. I liked his sympathetic and pleasant voice that he used to bring the story to life. He was a pleasure to listen to! It was not my first audiobook by Conan and I will be on the lookout for more audiobooks by him.
