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 Siren by Tiffany Reisz - My Thoughts
The Siren - Tiffany Reisz

I picked this book up because I read Tiffany Reisz's blog post for Queer Romance Month and was intrigued.  As I said in my comment to this post, I headed over to Amazon Canada and it was on sale so it seemed like I was fated to read this book.  :)  I did.  And OMG, it was NOT what I expected.

 

First off, if you're going to go into reading this with the idea that it's a kinky, queer romance... baby, it ain't that!  Oh, there's romance, there's kink, there's queer, but what this book is... is... hell, I don't know.  It's the story of a woman, her obsessions, her loves, her needs, her desires, her darkest thoughts... it's ...  well look, I'm going to link romance author Courtney Milan's Goodreads review here.  She says things SO much better than I ever could.  

 

Courtney Milan on The Siren

 

There are a lot of things in this book that I wasn't okay with... A LOT.  That's why I could only give it 4 stars and not 5, even though it probably deserves the 5.  *LOL*  But there was a lot that was uncomfortable to read, but I couldn't NOT read it.  There was so much PAIN.  Physical and emotional and while I looked for some of the glory and the wonder that I know can exist in BDSM, there was little of that here.  I didn't like Nora and I didn't like Soren but Dear Lord, they were fascinating!  (I did like Zach, Wes and what I saw of Griffin and Kingsley)

 

Will I read the next book in the series?  The Angel?  Yes, I will  But not right away.  After The Siren, I've picked up something totally different.  A fantasy adventure.  With magic and stuff.  Because The Siren just wrecked me all to hell.  :)

The Angel (The Original Sinners #2) by Tiffany Reisz
The Angel (The Original Sinners) - Tiffany Reisz

“No safe word can protect the heart.” 

Synopsis

 

Infamous erotica author and accomplished dominatrix Nora Sutherlin is doing something utterly out of character: hiding. While her longtime lover, Søren—whose fetishes, if exposed, would be his ruin—is under scrutiny pending a major promotion, Nora's lying low and away from temptation in the lap of luxury.

 

Her host, the wealthy and uninhibited Griffin Fiske, is thrilled to have Nora stay at his country estate, especially once he meets her traveling companion. Young, inexperienced and angelically beautiful, Michael has become Nora's protégé, and this summer with Griffin is going to be his training, where the hazing never ends.

 

But while her flesh is willing, Nora's mind is wandering. To thoughts of Søren, her master, under investigation by a journalist with an ax to grind. And to another man from Nora's past, whose hold on her is less bruising, but whose secrets are no less painful. It's a summer that will prove the old adage: love hurts.

The Siren (The Original Sinners #1) by Tiffany Reisz
The Siren - Tiffany Reisz

“A love story is not the same as a romance novel. A romance novel is the story of two people falling in love against their will. This is a story of two people who leave each other against their will. It starts to end the minute they meet.”

 

Synopsis

Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different—more serious, more personal—and she’s sure it’ll be her breakout book…if it ever sees the light of day.

 

Zachary Easton holds Nora’s fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards—in six weeks—or it’s no deal.

Nora’s grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining…and shockingly arousing. And a dangerous former lover has her wondering which is more torturous—staying away from him…or returning to his bed?

 

Nora thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in a world where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple.
