Review: The Siren by Tiffany Reisz

Author: Tiffany Reisz
Genre: Erotica
Publisher: Harlequin
Length: 400 Pages
Purchase: Amazon

Rating: 5 of 5 Kisses!


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.

Kitten's Review:

Oh, The Siren.

What can I say about The Siren that hasn’t already been said.

Well, everything!

I think I am in the minority here when I say that the fact that Soren is a Priest doesn’t bother me at all. Perhaps it is because I am an atheist and to me Soren isn’t about human emotions or compacity for love. Most people struggle with this and directly compare it to sacrilege and cheating on spouse. I found it the main entertainment driving point of the book for me. I gotta admit, my review partner figured it out first. When she broke it down for me I read even faster to catch up to where they outed it, not even realizing they had outed it in a previous short story of Tiffany’s.

I’m not going to give you a book report or break down of this book. I honestly think everyone else has already done that. This book deserves the passion of a reader that just loves the whole idea and impact that this book represents. This is writing at its best. A book is supposed to tear you apart and lift you up. Stomp you to the ground then lift you up and tend to your wounds. This book did exactly that. It pulled no punches. Yes, Tiffany does tell instead of show me a lot of her intimate moments. That doesn’t spoil the intensity for me. I can have her tell me how cruel of a Sadist that Soren is all she wants, the more she tells me, the more I want him to come over and dish out on me.

Not since Jericho Z. Barrons has a main male lead corrupted my soul as much as Soren has. He is the cats meow, and it will take another powerhouse like Reisz to move into that spot for me. I recommend this book to everyone that asks me “What should I read?!”
