Sinner - by Maggie Stiefvater #Kindle #Book Review

Disclosure: I received an unedited digital version of this book in exchange for the review. No other compensation was received!

SINNER follows Cole St. Clair, a pivotal character from the #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling Shiver Trilogy.
Cole St. Clair has come to California for one reason: to get Isabel Culpeper back. She fled from his damaged, drained life, and damaged and drained it even more. He doesn't just want her. He needs her.
Isabel is trying to build herself a life in Los Angeles. It's not really working. She can play the game as well as all the other fakes. But what's the point? What is there to win?
Cole and Isabel share a past that never seemed to have a future. They have the power to love each other and the power to tear each other apart. The only thing for certain is that they cannot let go.

My thoughts:
This book picks up after the Shiver Series (Wolves of Mercy Falls) with two characters I fell in love with... Cole and Isabel.    In the Shiver series Cole was a wise ass, do whatever he wanted character till he met ice-queen Isabel.  He changed, she changed and they were the couple you rooted for. When the Shiver series ended, I wanted more.  I was so excited when I heard this book was coming out!

Sinner is a lot different from the first three books, they were more focused on werewolves as this one is more about  Cole and Isabel. If you were not aware of the first three books, you might not even totally understand his wolf connection, as the wolf aspect was not focused on.  It focuses on two broken people and how they over come all obstacles to be together.  Isabel led the life of luxury, but it lacked love and affection.  Cole was a rock star, drug addict, self absorbed, but he too lacked love and affection.  When these two character collide, spark fly, fires burn and clothes come off.

Isabel is forced to move to LA with her mom, she despises it.  She gets a job at an upscale boutique, which is perfect for her snarky attitude, but something is still missing and it is Cole.   Cole can;t live without Isabel, so what else would a former rock star do? Of course travel across the US to be with her, film a reality TV show and record a new album.    I am not going to give anything else away, but a lot of fighting, getting to know each other, struggling with addictions, abandonment issues fill the pages, but in the end it gives us closure with the characters we fell in love with.  Did I like this I loved it!   I am still sad to see the series end, like with all great series, I want the story to continue and I want more.  Maybe someday we will get more Cole, Isabel, Sam and can only hope!
