What to expect: Dark Romance, Werewolves

Cole St. Claire is many things: a rock star, a recovering addict, and a werewolf. That, and he’s in love with Isabelle Culpepper. He’d do anything to get her back after the terrifying, haunting events back home. He can’t fix what he did in the past or who he used to be, but he’s traveled to Los Angeles to find her and convince her to be with him. Unfortunately, he’s signed up to be the star of an internet reality show that’s poised to record his inevitable relapse in all of its fiery glory.

Isabel is struggling to pretend she doesn’t care about anything—her job at a high-end boutique, her nursing school classes, or her parent’s inevitable divorce implosion. And when Cole shows up on the scene, sexy and smoldering and begging her to take him back, she wants nothing to do with him. That is, until she does. She just can’t stay away. Can these completely flawed people ever make it work? Or will Cole self-destruct for all the internet world to see, just as Isabel fears?

SINNER is the fourth book in the SHIVER series by Maggie Stiefvater. Fans of the series are treated to a beyond-the-ending look into what happens to two of their favorite characters after the original series ended. As always, Stiefvater’s writing is perfectly on-point, nailing the teenaged voice of the ever sarcastic Isabelle and Cole.
