Infamous erotica author and accomplished dominatrix Nora Sutherlin is doing something utterly out of character: hiding. While her longtime lover, S¿ren—whose fetishes, if exposed, would be his ruin—is under scrutiny pending a major promotion, Nora’s lying low and away fr

OMG. OMG!!! So, I read this book right after The Siren and and holyyy hell, it was fucking BRILLIANT!!! Gah. Wow. Ok, I did love the first book but now I seriously GET why so many of you absolutely L.O.V.E. this series. I get it. The feels. THE FEELS!!! Holy intensity!!!! I have tears in my eyes, my heart is racing and full to bursting. Ahhhh!! Yes, a few scenes definitely had me going WhatTheFuckDidIJustRead?! but that's all part of the thrill. This may not

"Eight and a half inches long if you'll recall."

I usually don't do casting in my graphics but when it comes to the Original Sinners, one does not simply skip out on them. SO VOILA ABOVE MY CASTING ♥ Also, thanks Allison for the constant spamming of hot delish men pictures that allowed my imagination to explode in ecstasy as I read!

Now let's take a moment and appreciate how f*cking awesome Griffin is.

My review contains spoilers for The Siren so, if you haven’t read that, I suggest you read no further.

So, a highly anticipated sequel to The Siren and I’m happy to say that it doesn’t disappoint and really does even surpass its predecessor. All our favourite characters are back, embracing their kink, living unashamedly in their sexy underworld. I think this is more playful than The Siren, not as angsty, the characters are all, mostly, having fun. It’s a blast and it just b
5++++++++ Stars. I love everything about this book.

Lawd Jesus! This was really good. Tiffany is an exceptional story teller. I was hooked from the very first page and stayed up all night to finish this. There were twists and turns that i never saw coming. Kept me guessing and saying just one more page.... just one more page.

Adult review for erotic content.

I think I'd rather be doing laundry than writing this review right now. I wish I were kidding. It's hard to write reviews for books when you want to emphasize what you did like while not completely avoiding what you didn't like.
"You told me about him. Good men don't hit women."
"Good men only hit the women who want to be hit."

Can we somehow put this on an advertisement poster for BDSM? Maybe if we did, the subject wouldn't freak people out so much.

RATING: 5+ "Many Waters..." Hearts!! :) <3

“Many waters cannot quench love, Nor will rivers overflow it.” Song of Solomon 8:7

The Angel is simply erotic romance at its finest. There is something sinfully beautiful about this masterful world Ms. Reisz has created, the characters that inhabit it, and their compelling stories. This book invoked raw emotions in me I can't explain even if I tried.

Once again, I am lost in Tiffany Reisz’s dangerously dark and confusingly erotic world. I’ve been having dreams about this book since I finished it 2 days ago and find myself thinking about the characters in the middle of the day, out of nowhere. This woman has become one of my favorite authors EVER so quickly, and has practically ruined me for all the other erotica books out there with h

Wasn’t sure anything could TOP The Siren… I was wrong. This book blew me away. This author is fantastic. She seriously has done her homework on the Catholic Church. As I speak, listening to the Radio, somebody else is on talking about the Magdelene Launderies, the Church, Catholicism. Will you “get” this book if you are not a Catholic? Yes, I definitely think so. The author is so talented that she can transcend any faith/persuasi

Now that I've gotten some sleep... I can gather my thoughts on this one!!! What a fabulous story!!!
The Angel is a continuation of the story introduced in The Siren, a glimpse into what happens next in the life of Nora Sutherlin as well as a closer look into the past lives of Nora's men, the elusive Søren, Kingsley Edge, Griffin Fiske, Wes Railey and The Angel... Michael Dimir.

There aren't many series out there where I have much desire to re-read them. I mean, I know the story and how it ends. What's really to gain? What did I gain rereading The Angel? An even deeper, profound respect for this author. I recently tried to explain the TOS phenomenon to a friend and I compared it to an episode of "Friends," where there's not one or two MCs, but a conglomerate of characters, all adding t

And a tease.

Suzanne's part also, so good and thrilling!
On the other hand, Wes was a stone in my shoes. I can't get Nora's infatuation with him.

I loved, loved, LOVED this book.

Story picks up a year after the ending of The Siren (The Original Sinners, #1) by Tiffany Reisz . Nora moves on physically but her heart is still broken. She is in full denial and gets surprised when she finds tears in her eyes thinking about a certain Big Brown Eyes. This makes me wonder who exactly has the majority of her heart Soren or Wes?

I have a love / hate relationship with Søren. That man both turns me on and makes me wet just like a Niagara falls but on the other side he is making me scare shitless. He is also a very complex man and it's really hard to understands him BUT in the end he did something for Nora and I'd never guessed that... He loves her so much and he gave something to her just to make her happy... And now God have mercy on my soul because of that gesture this sadistic son of a bitch owns my heart... ❤

Preliminary review-This book is amazing. Just amazing. Tiffany Reisz is so damn smart. She makes you think. She makes you feel. She makes you question yourself and your beliefs. She's not afraid of the darknessthat resides in a character's soul and she's not afraid drag you along with her into that darkness.. Nothing is taboo with her, and she makes you feel like you should reconsider what you consider taboo. All of her characters are relatable. All are human, flawed and beautiful.

Well, another book that is only 3 stars that I paid $6.99+tax on. Which I am not thrilled about.

But the strangest thing is that I MAY DO IT AGAIN!!

So... now that I've adjusted my expectations and realized that this series is NOT about romance and TRUE LOVE and all that wonderful warm fuzzies I like to escape to in my reading, I'm less critical about the *everyone sleeps with everyone else* bit.

Why 3 stars then?
