Absinthe of the Heart


Monica James

Monica James AOTH ecover 5.14.18


Two households, unlike in dignity, in the City of Angels is where we lay our scene…

London Sinclair was the boy my mother warned me about for as long as I can remember. His name alone has brought my family nothing but shame and suffering, so it’s no surprise we’ve been sworn enemies since the first moment we met.

With his bedroom eyes and cocky smile, he has all the girls under his spell. I have one more year of school left, and then I’m home free because I’m guarding a secret, one I’m ashamed to keep.

The boy who is completely off-limits is the one who drives me, Holland Brooks, wild. I want London, and I think…he wants me, too.

Some may compare it to a Shakespearian tragedy, as our surnames have fated our future, but when a single night changes my life forever, I can’t leave the City of Angels fast enough.

Ten years later, I have atoned for my sins and return to Los Angeles a changed woman. I’ve come home to get married. But the moment London walks back into my life, one thing is clear. Ten years can’t undo that night—that single, sinful night when I gave into temptation—because I want to do it again.

Tanya Rae’s rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved reading Absinthe of the Heart! If you love angst driven books then this is the book for you.

I fell in love with Absinthe of the Heart and is the first book in the Sins of Yesterday series! If you love angst in your books you should love this book! I read in Monica James bio that she loves “writing honest, heartfelt and turbulent stories”. You get all 3 of these with Absinthe of the Heart.

Do you believe in history repeating itself? This is London Sinclair and Holland Brooks story. Their mothers were the best of friends until one fateful moment and then they become enemies.

While growing up it seems like London is always mean to Holland when he is secretly longing for her. They have a love/hate relationship. I won’t say any more but, like I said earlier I love their story.

I can’t wait for the next book! I hope it isn’t long until it comes out! I need more of their story!!!!
