    4.5 STARS This is one long book, for me, I found it a little slow to start with but once it gets going I was really got into the story. I’m not going to go into details of the book as I don’t want to post any spoilers. Ella knows how to write a story that will grip you, have your emotions all over the place. She knows how to pull on your heartstrings, she does it beautifully with this book I really didn’t know what to expect when I opened t...

    Let us start with the obvious.. That Cover! Look at that cover! I think my eye balls nearly popped out. Lol!Here's the thing, This is my first Ella James book and after reading the synopsis, I went into this with high expectations. I was looking forward to JUST a hot steamy romance read but I got a whole lot more.Covet is a thick book! It's so long! (No pun intended)Don't get me wrong..I have nothing against thick books..the longer the better (Ge...

    Aw wow. This book was totally unexpected for me and I loved it so much. ARC received in exchange for an honest reviewThe storyline in this book is different to what I’ve read from other books. It’s about old traditions and old ways and a stranger coming to land and ruffling up the place and turning all the heads. Declan and Finley are a special kind of couple. Watching their relationship throughout this book has been my absolute favourite. Sh...

    4.65 stars ( I only cut the points because it could be 50 or 70 pages less)Great, unconventional,tormented, broken souls who are my favorite kind of characters!

    An incredible story and a journey I never expected. This story took me completely by surprise and I absolutely loved it!!Declan is a baseball superstar but also a hot mess. It’s time to get his life back on track. He’s headed to a remote island that is completely disconnected from the rest of the the world. He’ll stay for several months to clean up his act.

    This is the first book I’ve read by this author. Covet is book three in the Sinful Secrets Series but can be read as a complete standalone. This book started out a bit slow for me, but with the vivid imagery and great storyline, it didn’t take long to get into. Our Hero and heroine weren’t without demons. Declan is a huge baseball star in Boston and he’s struggling with addiction. Needing to get away and regroup, he takes his timeout on t...

    This was a book that I have been "Covet"ing (like what I did there?) for a really, really long time!! I absolutely LOVED it! This third installment of Elle James' Forbidden Romance series (personally I loved the "Sinful Secrets" series title better) was an absolutely thrilling, sexy, angsty, keep you on your toes read. Declan "Homer" Carnegie is the star baseball player in Boston, but he has secrets - boat loads of them. He travels to Tristan da ...

    Sometimes it bothers me when the blurb is vague about a story but I love it because you don't expect certain things from the story. This story, from the beginning made me keep turning pages and even when the book is long, it did not feel that way because you got into the book so you felt a part of the island. Tristan made me feel like I was back in time with not much technology and a lot of time for yourself, to find happiness in little things th...

    You know the type of stories which plague your thoughts for a long time? Ella James gave it to us with Sloth and she’s done it again four years later. In that time she gave us several fabulous Off Limits stories such as Crown Jewels, which is where we first meet Declan, the heartbreaking protagonist of her newest release, Covet. Ella James is a master at weaving an intricate tale and I’m always amazed at how she incorporates her details of he...

    When Declan needs to get away from the mess he's made of his life, he heads to Tristan da Cunha, the island in the middle of nowhere where his family are patron saints practically. It was on this island he witnessed something that made an impact on him years ago, and he's never forgotten the special little girl involved in this incident. Wow. That's the main word I was thinking as I read this rather long story, and it's the word still left in my ...

    Tortured, sad, romantic, sexy?  Yes, Covet by Ella James has it all.  I was impressed with the beautiful writing and how James was able to capture the remote island life of the main character.  Furthermore, Covet delves deep inside the life of an addict and what their struggles truly entail, and Ella James was able to write it in such a realistic and heart-wrenching way that I hurt for Declan.  Covet is full of tragedy but also full of ho...

    I’ve just finished Covet. So many times during this book my heart was breaking. But as the end drew near and I slowed my pace (because their story could NOT end!), I found the good in all they endured. Happiness. Peace. Home. I can only say that as I close the book on the story of Declan and Finley, my heart is full.Declan’s life could be plucked from the headlines of ESPN. He has a dark side and his reasoning for going to the island of Trist...

    This book CONSUMED me! I had been in a bit of a book funk, so it was nice to drown in this steamy, emotional read. The writing is so perfect. I felt every single emotion, including all the pain. I’m talking allllll the feels. I fell in love with Sloth years ago, and I’ve loved all three books in this series. They’re so unique. And they are all complete standalones. I highly recommend this series!!

    Find this review and others at Carlene Inspired.I am a longtime Ella James fan and I've been patiently waiting for the Sinful Secrets novels to be continued, so you can probably picture my excitement when Covet finally got a release date. I absolutely went into it with high expectations and I think EJ hit it out of the park. Just like Sloth and Murder, the characters and the sin they must work through are difficult and EJ does a fantastic job of ...

    Declan has forged himself a successful career as a star baseball player which he now finds is self destructing around him and he is determined to pick up the pieces of his life his way and not how the team dictates. He finds himself heading to the remote island of Tristan da Cunha where he can reassess far away from the spotlight he finds himself under, and maybe he can reconnect with the little girl he met all those years ago and has never forgo...

    You have to love an author who ventures into the different. I get bored with the CEO, bazillionaire, rock star type books.Ella does different but with a bit of same! I’m not explaining myself very well. Our hero (Declan Carnegie) aka Homer is a rich baseball player (potential yawn) but he’s got complexities. Our heroine (Finley Evans) lives on a rock in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean with a teenie tiny population (now that is different).Wor...
