The Confessions - Tiffany Reisz

The Confessions is seriously a gift for those fans of the Original Sinners series. In my opinion, The Confessions is not a book for anyone who hasn't read all 8 books in the Original Sinners series, as readers unfamiliar with the series won't understand everything that is being discussed.

 

I absolutely adored "The Confession of Marcus Stearns", The Confession of Eleanor Schreiber", and "The Confession of Tiffany Reisz." I wasn't lucky enough to be at RT in 2014, but was lucky enough to have a friend who was there and let me read her copy of "The Confession of Marcus Stearns" after swearing in blood I'd give it back. I had all the same feels reading it for the second time. Without giving any spoilers away, I can say fans of the series will love reading all 3 confessions and if anything like me, will only fall in love with the characters more than before. In fact my girl-crush on Eleanor/Nora is stronger than it was before and these short stories only made me miss my favorite character even more. I also now have a special place in my heart for Father Stuart Ballard, as he is the man to listen to both Søren and Eleanor's confessions. I really wanted to give him a hug several times during their confessions.

 

Fans of the Original Sinners series will be so excited to read The Confessions. There is insight into the characters and how the series came to be. I have to say after reading certain parts of the interview/confession with Tiffany, I found validation in how I saw some scenes in my head as I was reading certain passages in the series, especially one with Grace and Søren. I feel like I'm repeating myself here, but The Confessions is not a story to pick up without reading the other books in the series first unless the reader wants to feel pretty lost in what is discussed in the confessions.

Audiobook Review: The Queen (The Original Sinners: #8) by Tiffany Reisz
The Queen: Original Sinners: The White Years Series #4 - Tantor Audio,Tiffany Reisz,Elizabeth Hart

My review and an extended sample of the audiobook are posted at Hotlistens.com.

 

I went into this book with mix feelings. One, I was very excited to see how the story wrapped up with Nora, Soren, King and everyone else. On the other hand, I hated that this was the ending. It seems like I’ve been reading about them forever. I’ve really enjoyed my journey with them and I hate to see it come to an end. Then again, I did read The Siren in 2012 way back before I was reviewing books.

 

I will say that Tiffany Reisz didn’t disappoint with this book. It was everything that I’ve come to expect from an Original Sinners book. The story starts off right where we left off in The Virgin, with everyone at castle in Scotland for a wedding which hasn’t yet taken place. The story then flashes back to the story of how Eleanor Schreiber became Nora Sutherlin. Boy, it was quite the ride.

 

One of the first things the new Mistress Nora has to do is dethrone the current queen. Kingsley and Nora make quite a plan to place Mistress Nora at the top of the dominatrix list. While things don’t go exactly how they plan for them to go, I think Nora shows that she is able to hold her own and is willing to do what it takes to become the most infamous dominatrix New York has ever seen.

 

While back in the past, we have a lot of time with with Kingsley, Soren, Juliette and even Griffin. We have the confessional sex that many have been requesting for a while now. We even get to watch how Nora meeting Wesley.

 

Coming back to the present, we get Kingsley, Soren, Griffin, Michael, Alfred (Griffin’s butler), Grace, and Zach. It was great to get to see everyone one last time. There was a very touching scene at the end, which I won’t spoil for anyone, but isn’t too hard to figure out. All in all, I thought that the story wrapped up very well. My only complaint, flashbacks within flashbacks.

 

Narration

Elizabeth Hart is a narrator that has grown on me as she has continued to narrate the White Years of this series. Originally, I wasn’t a big fan, but the more I listened to her, the more I come to enjoy her narration. My original problem with her was Kingsley. I didn’t like her accent. I noticed it mostly when she narrated The King. I’m not sure how much of that was because the majority of that story was narrated by him and less of him works better for her or if she has just gotten better with his voice. Either way, I’ve come to enjoy the narration.

 

I like to thank Tantor Audio for providing me with a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

The End of The Original Sinners *sniff*
The Queen (The Original Sinners) - Tiffany Reisz

What an emotional journey we’ve enjoyed along with Nora, Soren, Kingsley and the rest of their salacious group. The Queen is the final installment. The last hurrah. And as sad as I am to watch these characters go, it couldn’t have ended in a more fitting way.

‘So much for being a queen. In the game between Kingsley and Soren, she was still very much a pawn.’

I won’t even begin to try to explain the magic that is Tiffany Reisz’s The Original Sinners series. I could never do it justice and it is something that has to be read book by book to be completely understood. It is a masterpiece of erotica. Actually, not just erotica, because this series has always been more than that. To me, it’s about the abundance of love, respect, hurt and doubt within every book, every character and every substory we have encountered along the way.

The Queen (The Original Sinners) - Tiffany Reisz

Review copy provided by publisher

 

I fell in love with Tiffany Reisz's books when I read The Siren. I'll admit I actually had to start it twice as it was so intense I actually stopped reading it initially, but wanted to read The Angel, book 2 in the series, so I started The Siren again and fell in love with the characters. I devour each as every book in the series as they come out and have to admit I did wait a couple of weeks after The Queen showed up on my kindle to start it. The Original Sinners series is one of my most favorite series ever and it all ends with The Queen. I honestly wasn't ready to say good-bye to Nora, Søren, Kingsley, Griffin, Michael, and the rest of the Sinners.

 

There is always so much happening in each of the Original Sinners books, I always feel like if I say too much, I might give a surprise away in my review. I absolutely loved The Queen from start to finish. Tiffany Reisz gave her readers the absolutely perfect ending to the Original Sinners series. She pulled ever-single emotion out of me while I read The Queen. I don't often laugh out loud one minute and bawl my eyes out like a baby when reading a romance. However, it totally worked for me and made perfect sense at each step of the story. As with each of the other books in the series, there are plenty of super sexy times between your favorite Sinners, and one super hot scene that many of her readers have been asking for since the very first book. My kindle screen steamed up more than once while I was reading The Queen.

 

I honestly believe the Original Sinners series is one of the best series of books I've ever read and highly recommend the books to everyone. I also believe you should read the series in order to understand the series best. Start with the Red Years and then read the White Years. I am totally in love with the characters from the Original Sinners series and will miss getting new stories about them each year. I am however, super excited for new stories from Tiffany Reisz, as her voice is amazing and I know she will pull me in with her next book.

The Queen by Tiffany Reisz
The Queen (The Original Sinners) - Tiffany Reisz

**Originally posted @ ReadingDiva's Blog

REVIEW: The Queen is another amazing work by Tiffany Reisz. The Queen is the final book in the Original Sinners: The White Years series and the conclusion is one that will break your heart while filling it up with happiness and so much love.

Tiffany Reisz has written one of the most amazing Erotic stories I have ever read, her characters are compelling, complex and layered – as a reader of romance and erotic novels I find myself sometimes wondering how her brain works. The Queen brings us back to the years when Nora had not yet defined her real role in the kinky world, having left Søren, her heart and mind were not always in the same place and going at the same speed. The Nora we meet in The Queen is not the always assertive, and secure, but a woman whose feelings and thoughts are in a battle for domination and control. Nora knows and feel her place in the kingdom is to be on top – to dominate but she also knows her heart belongs to Søren and she can’t deny how she feels when she is on the receiving end of their affair.

I loved every page of this book, Nora – Kingsley & Soren are perfect in every way. These characters show a connection that would put any other story to shame. Their world and their feelings are in-sync with their desires, and once they are together their exchange is usually explosive. Reisz takes us into a journey, The Queen is everything one would expect. Though Nora is at war with her heart and mind, she doesn’t let that stop her from enjoying the kinks and the pleasure it brings her. As strong as these characters are, and as in control as they may be, they are every bit of human and their vulnerabilities are heartfelt. From Kingsley to Søren these characters showed us a very different side of them, their emotions ran free, and Nora was absolutely awesome. There were a few times when my heart broke, like when Søren expresses his fear and his life without Nora, showing us the depth of his vulnerability – another was when Kingsley cried in Søren’s arms and the moment when Nora comes back for her Everything & Forever those scenes were heart breaking while exhilarating all at once. I love these characters, their story and their lives. They have taught us more than just kinks, their differences made them stronger and their passion, desires, and love brought them together. Trust, loyalty, desire and need for one another was always present but without taking away their feelings, passions & emotions. Every aspect of their story was told in a way that stays with the reader.

Reisz has defined a genre by giving us complexity and depth. Her stories are not typical in any way, her characters layered in ways that pushes the reader into a roller-coaster of emotions. The Queen may be the last book in the series but I am hoping it isn’t the last we hear from these characters. Griffin & Michael have their ever after, Kingsley found his peace and Søren gave Nora her Everything & Forever. The Queen was awesome and I can’t help but feel like it will take a while before the sense of loss goes away.

Reisz, thank you for having written such an amazing story and for taking us into a journey that has shaken us up in many ways, giving us characters that fall far from typical and a romance that falls far from the stereotypical. You must read The Original Sinners Series because this is one of those reads that will stay with you for a very long while.
