Review: Epic Sins by Trudy Stiles

Title: Epic Sins

Series: Epic Fail #1

Author: Trudy Stiles

Genre: New Adult, Romance

Release: November 4, 2015

Rating: 4 out of 5

Garrett Armstrong, the lead guitarist of Epic Fail, womanizer and not-so-nice guy, leaves a trail of women in his wake. A recent one-night stand wreaks havoc and turns his present completely upside down. He’s faced with a reality that he never expected. Never wanted.

Samantha Weston can’t escape the black cloud that follows her. She suffered an unspeakable loss as a teenager and has been climbing uphill ever since. As soon as her life starts to become manageable, she’s slammed with another tragic event, forcing her to abandon the only thing in life that she cherishes.

A heartbreaking situation throws this unlikely pair together. They’re forced to face things that seem impossible. Can Sam get past the demons that haunt her? Can Garrett accept a fate he swore to avoid at all costs?

Can they conquer the sins that are poised to destroy them, or will they become an Epic Fail?

Epic Sins is the first book of the Epic Fail series, a spinoff of The Forever Family series.

Reading The Forever Family series is not required as these are all spin-off/standalone novels, but it may enhance your experience.

My Thoughts

This is my first Trudy Stiles book, and definitely will not be my last. What a book! I was very impressed with it and can’t wait for Epic Lies.
I love a story where characters have shocking pasts and do a complete 180 and change for the best. I did not liked Sam in the beginning. She was quite childish at times but as time went by I started to understand her and grow fond of her as she became more understanding. 

Garrett is the bad boy in a famous band. He likes to party like any other band member would. However his life comes to an unexpected halt. With unimagined life changing consequences. I loved the way Garrett grow into his roll. It was beautiful to see him grow and become involved. He was definitely my favorite character in this story.

In the end I love both characters, they both experience different lives. Both of them had their sins and tragedies to deal with and with each other’s help they both overcome the demons from their past. They become the perfect couple and I loved how well they complement each other.

This story is heart breaking and heartwarming, so be ready to grab your tissues. I look forward to reading more from Trudy Stiles! She has found a way into my heart with her wonderful writing style and become one of my automatic buy authors. I recommend this book to any Stiles fans and anyone who loves NA with a heartfelt romance story.
