The beating would seem to last forever. Even eternity in Hell was no Hell if he was there. The flogging finally ceased. He pressed in close to her. She felt his strong, bare chest against her burning back. She breathed in and inhaled his scent. Even warm from exertion and arousal he still smelled like a deep winter night. A night with him always meant waning pleasure and waxing pain, waxing pleasure and waning pain. He brought her through the cycle over and over again.
The pain brought her body to life. The pleasure was always most acute when it followed the pain. Now it was pleasure alone she felt as he caressed her breasts and teased her nipples. His mouth found the spot between her shoulder blades that when touched sent a thrill straight into her stomach. One hand slid between her legs and touched her clitoris. With his finger and thumb he massaged it until she was so close to coming she felt the first muscle contraction.
He pulled away from her, leaving her panting and desperate for him. She prayed hed let her down now, let her down and finally take her. When she heard the whistling sound of something slicing through the air, she knew he wasnt done hurting her yet. After so many years together shed learned how to prepare herself for a flogging, for the whip and the strap.
She knew tricks, ways to breathe, ways to hold herself, to alleviate the pain even as she received it. But when it came to the cane, nothing helped. And when the first strike landed on her lower thighs, she could do nothing but cry out. The second came on the heels of the first, a little harder and one inch higher.
On the fourth strike she screamed and felt the blindfold turn wet with tears. The fifth was lighter only because the sixth and final strike was always the worst. The sixth landed in a diagonal across all five previous welts.
She sagged in her bonds and cried. He didnt always beat her until she cried. She learned to love and fear those nights he did. He saved up her pain, counted it like currency and the more pain she endured, the more pleasure she could download with it. When he untied her from the bedpost, her arms fell like dead weight to her sides and her knees buckled. He caught her before she collapsed and laid her tenderly on the center of the bed.
His mouth was at her ear now. She was always his, would forever be his. New tears flowed now but they were ones wrenched from her by love and not torture. This was her favorite pain.
He kissed her now on the mouth for the first time.
He kissed her like he owned her, as he owned her. He kissed her like her mouth was his mouth, her lips were his lips, her tongue was his tongue.
They were one flesh. They needed no wedding ring, no ceremony to know that was true. She had the collar around her neck. She did not envy married women what they had. She would take his collar over a blood diamond and a cheap gold band any day and for all time. He moved away from her again.
She waited on her aching back and relished the absence of pain. When he returned to her he pulled the coverlet down underneath her so she lay on the sheets. He took her by the knees and wrapped a soft cotton rope around them.
She relaxed and let him tie her to the bed.
Her knees were up and pulled wide. She lay completely open now. No matter how hard she could try to close her legs, she couldnt. She never tried. The bed shifted. She knew he knelt between her wide-open thighs. She inhaled sharply when she felt his fingers slowly enter her. He opened his fingers to widen her, to prepare her for his penetration.
He pushed into the back wall of her vagina and pressed down until she flinched hard around his hand. Her passage was slick and wet for him. But he was large enough that he could tear her or bruise her if he didnt ready her for him first. There were times he took her so roughly she bled. Those were the nights he was lost to himself, lost in the darkness that hid beneath the shadow of his heart. But tonight he wasnt lost.
He was with her. She felt the wet tip of him poised at the entrance to her body. He pushed in slowly.
She whimpered as she stretched and opened to take all of him. If she could have taken his whole being inside her she would. If she could disappear inside him and live in his skin she would. His pace did not quicken. The banter between Nora and [insert any character she comes into contact with in the novel here] is fantastic, and her chemistry with all the men in her life is palpable. I should mention here that all these men have sexy accents.
An Englishman, an American, a Frenchman walk into a bar…. It was exhausting. I loved it. As an outsider going merely by those I consider as excellent writers of the genre—namely, Cherise Sinclair and Joey W. Hill—the book felt and read like a much more accurate depiction of the BDSM lifestyle. Who might enjoy it: Anyone who loved or immensely disliked or is allergic to the Fifty Shades Bandwagon Phenomenon.
Who might not enjoy it: Readers who want a more traditional romance, erotic or otherwise. A review copy of this book was generously provided by Harlequin Australia. The Original Sinners Book 1 Author: Tiffany Reisz Publisher: It would be hugely misleading to tell you that this is "what the story is about" and yet if I told you much more detail, it would take the thrill out of the story.
Suffice it to say that there's large cast of male characters around Nora. There's Wesley -- her nineteen-year-old virgin intern who cares so deeply for this woman who is in almost every way his complete opposite.
I loved him so much!! To be honest, I think the hottest sex scenes were the ones that happened-but-didn't-happen with him. I find him both scary and fascinating I like him but he kinda scares me a little because he's just so extreme!!! I'm drawn to the strength of his character though and to the power that he almost intrinsically commands I think I'll warm up to him as I read. We didn't see that much about him this book but we saw enough to intrigue me and I know he becomes a major player in the later books And of course there's Zach -- the editor whose life is turned upside down after meeting Nora, who is still hopelessly in love with his estranged wife Oh and there's Griffin -- he's another Dominant who we only saw him briefly but I really like him!
Nora is the heart of the story though and is, without a doubt, one of the most intriguing female characters I've ever read. An erotica writer and a Dominant, who was once a submissive. She's mysterious and yet forthcoming, so very clever, funny and charming, but sultry and dangerous, and yet also vulnerable. I love the strength of her character and I can't wait to learn more about her as the series goes on.
There's a lot of depth to the themes in the book. I don't want to spoil anything by even hinting at it but I'll just say that this is a lot more than an erotic novel. I found the beliefs and values held by the characters were very eye opening and would love to learn more about them in the books to come. The story is erotic. Intensely sexual.
There's strong love, but no romance. It's amazing the way the author separates these elements.
Most books easily separate sex from romance. But separating love from romance while sex is still in the mix is a whole other level of intricacy. It's just so wildly different that you can't put it into that box. You just have to accept it as it is because This book doesn't play by the rules, it makes it own. I find the BDSM world really intriguing. The author did such an amazing job of educating the reader by "showing rather than telling" an understanding of the way that world works through the scenes.
You should know that Nora does have sex with multiple people during the course of this book. They are not random sexcapades and always served some sort of purpose. It kind of goes against what I usually like to read about but I found that once I just opened my mind and accepted the world, I was fine with it. It was so clever and secretive -- hiding these secrets of her past in plain sight. For an erotic book, it's also surprisingly tasteful.
Never gratuitous. In fact, I'd say this is one of my most highlighted books ever -- 72 favorites quotes selected! I strongly recommend reading these books in order. There's a real beauty, polish, and purpose to the way the story is unfolding. I usually am the kind of reader who wants to know the answers to certain things in advance but I've decided to just accept whatever comes and I'm reading these completely blind! I want to stress that I do not consider these books "dark" really Even the most brutal, shocking, or extreme things that happen, do so because of choice, not force.
There's a huge difference between someone tying some random person up and beating them, and someone willing submitting trust to someone else to give them the beating that they want. The sub has all the power -- they have a safe word they can use at anytime. While I most certainly understand that this world and this type of story won't be for everyone, I also want to assure you that it's definitely not random brutality. It's such a rare treat to be able to really binge on a series so finding one that is this well written is just a bookworm's dream!
On to book 2!! This is just the start of the series so I'm going to hold off on rating it until I've read a bit more. But right now, I have the feeling that this will end up being a 5-star series for me! Book 1: The Siren Book 2: The Angel Book 3: The Prince Book 4: The Mistress Book 5: The Saint Book 6: The King Book 7: The Virgin Book 8: I've "hidden" these in a spoiler tag but they are NOT spoilers.
I only hid them because there are a lot and I thought it would be annoying to just have them out there. Have a look if you want, it's perfectly safe: Goddamit, why are there no good synonyms for thrust? Somebody should spank me. With words intimate and secret he whispered his love for her… She was always his, would forever be his. Resting her head on his strong shoulder, she watched as a tear forged a river down his long and muscled back.
He had taught her that, as well.
Not my usual boy-meets-girl, boy-beats-girl story. I ended up hog-tied on the living-room floor for half an hour. Was there any woman in the world quite like Nora? He was so glad she existed; even more glad there was only one of her. By far. Stop it. Seriously, bite me.
Plot is plot. Find one and keep it. The only way to win this game is to surrender. And Kingsley Edge, is obviously, our king. What is he? Griffin smirked. She flirts, she teases, she confeses everything but reveals nothing. Nora laughed. It will slice you open with every touch. View all 76 comments. What it is, is a deep exploration of the emotions and sexuality of two people who have broken up from the apparent loves of their lives.
I found the style of writing very atmospheric. The world around me fad 5 deliciously dark stars This is not a romance novel…… This is not even your garden variety erotica. The world around me faded to grey, everything fell away and all that was left was the words on a page.
It captivated me. Nora is a best-selling erotica writer who is intent on moving her work to a well-respected publishing house and insists on their most respected editor — a hard-nosed, stuffed-shirt of an Englishman, Zach. He, at first, turns his nose up at working with her but takes the job as his boss feels she can bring a libidinous cachet to his staid publishing house. So, the story revolved around Zach picking her work to pieces with brutal attention to detail. I wonder what pressure Tiffany Reisz herself felt under here when every word is under scrutiny and the quality of the prose is up for constant assessment.
Zach has recently separated from his wife and left her in England. Nora has left the sadist Master she was submissive to for thirteen years. The reason why will shock you. Zach is also clearly still in love with his ex wife, Grace. Their respective breakups cast a hefty shadow over both of their lives and their choices giving a faintly depressive aspect to the narrative. Nora is a very complex character, reckless and wild, fascinating and beautiful, dark and dangerous and, unbeknown to Zach, Nora is not just a sub, a domme or even a switch.
No, Nora supports her opulent lifestyle by working as a professional Dominatrix. The submissive somewhere deep in me feels only profound sadness for the perceived loneliness of the Dominatrix.
Nora has another very important relationship in her life. I loved Wesley. He was wise beyond his years, a virgin and deeply, deeply in love with Nora. I was so desperate for her not to take their relationship that little bit further and totally destroy it. It really leaves you thinking. And the ending —at least there is to be a sequel, The Angel.
I feel very strongly that this story is not done, deeply unsure about the decisions the main protagonists made at the end. I need more.

You become a captive to the words on the pages and you surrender willingly. I mean, how can I not compare them all to this perfection right here? It was intriguing and cringe-worthy. It was shocking and exhausting. It was heart-wrenching and confusing. It was erotic and guilt-tripping. Very different and imaginative. I think Tiffany Reisz deserves a million trophies for her work.
As for the story If you want to properly experience this book, you gotta go in blind. You'll thank me later. To answer that question, I'd have to talk a bit about the characters.
So here it goes: They all promise wicked sexiness and fun Zachary Easton I loved his safeword though. Very touching. Wesley Railey This boy I can't lie, he did cause me to roll my eyes a few times with his extreme naivety. He has a very big and tender heart, beating for the wrong person. It's not his fault.
We'll get to the part where I tell you whose fault it is! It IS his fault though, that he keeps forgiving and forgetting. His optimism and patience is infuriating! Yet, in my opinion, he is the most lovable character in the bunch and I can't help but feel soft towards him. There are no adjectives that would properly depict him. I wouldn't be doing justice to him if I started calling him perfect or dreamy.
I know that there are some things about him that are hard to swallow Would you guys unfriend me if I confessed that I hate her with every fiber of my body?
And just so you know, I adored her at the beginning of the book. Her witty and sarcastic come-backs, her self-confidence and her comfort with her sexuality earned my appreciation. She was unlike any other female MC I ever read. I liked the originality. You know what caused her to fall from heaven to the deepest corners of hell in my head? She is the most selfish person I've ever had the privilege of reading about. With Zack She claims she did all of what she did to "help him get rid of his guilt".
She keeps sending mixed messages, telling him she is still in love with him and then telling him she's never coming back. I think she is subconsciously doing half the things she's doing to punish him for all those Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's pretty obvious who she belongs to and whatever she does in the meantime Personally, I don't even want her to end up with him.
And with Wes This is the worst part. I wanted to slam Nora's face into a wall at least 10 times for the way she kept stringing that poor boy along! Remember the first rule of the the Eighth Circle, Nora, dear? Hurt, but do not harm. She knows that this game means much more to him than her. She knows that he will end up "harmed". But she pushes their friendship a little bit further everyday. More and more. I can understand that she is fascinated by his "innocence" and is merely trying to absorb some of it.
I can not forgive her for all the inconsiderate things she has done when Wes was concerned. Oh and the ending Nora's so-called "selfless" act Pushing away Wes because she still can't trust herself with him? Nora, dear My job here is done. Especially you, Jas. I know you love her, bestie.

It sheds a whole new light on erotic romance, a genre I already liked but now am really looking forward to reading. Erotic Romance authors beware, there's a new author in town. Bloody hell. I cried I cried! I must be the only person who shed tears, not once, but a few times while reading The Siren. What is wrong with me?? I understood why the story ended the way it did.
And to be honest, if all the characters did ride off into the sunset, I would have been pissed off. Instead, a collaring took place and a hospital visit was involved.
This was so moving, my chest ached and my stomach was in knots. What an extremely beautiful and dark love story to read. There are a three important notes you must read before reading this book: This is not a romance novel. The characters love each other very deeply but in their own ways. It's actually very beautiful to read.
There is no HEA. If you need your HEA to end with the couple riding off into the sunset, then do yourself a favor and do NOT read this. There are no long walks on the beaches either. The most important note you need to know- This is not for the faint of heart.
This is one the darkest book I have ever read and I have a feeling you will agree with me if you read it. It won't leave you cringing or holding your breath, you'll only be begging for more. If you can over look those notes, which I highly encourage you to, then I would say you have a winner!
The Siren is unlike anything I have ever read. A true memorable read and a force to be reckoned with- no joke. This book was provided by the publisher in return for an honest review.

Tiffany has that power over people. Sep 03, Anachronist rated it did not like it Shelves: New York. Nora Sutherlin, a successful erotica writer, is trying to sell her latest novel to a respectable publishing house.
She thinks it is her best and the most personal book so far and she hopes it will establish her position as a serious, professional writer. The publishers are willing to download it, and pay her a six-number advance fee, but under one condition: Nora agrees; in fact she wants the best editor they have because this time she wants to Synopsis: Nora agrees; in fact she wants the best editor they have because this time she wants to do it right.
The fate of her book, and her career, depends on him. Will Nora be able to sell her book? Will Zach cooperate with her? What will she and her editor learn during their cooperation? My impressions: Overall I think the author was trying too hard to make this story original. With so many BDSM novels on the market, representing every possible flavour, from mild romance to hard-core porn, it is a daunting task, I am sure of it.
Still trying too hard is more often than not a bad strategy — even worse than not trying at all. It might make you write bad things and masquerade them as good. I saw many positive reviews which described this novel as such but in my case it was a failure.
First let me tell you that presenting sexual relationship between an adult and a minor as a form of entertainment is child pornography, full stop. Nothing can be considered a sufficient explanation or justification of including such things in an erotica novel, not even the consensual character of the intercourse. Be warned- this book crosses the decency borderline in more than one way. Puppy love can be understood, psychological and physical abuse of a minor - not. And not even try to tell me like Nora told Wes that a handjob is not a sexual act because it is.
Everybody and anybody in this novel is ridiculously good-looking. Nora is a beautiful petite brunette with the right curves to muscles ratio. Zach, her editor is a blue-eyed, dark-haired wonder of a man, over six feet tall and built like a young god or at least a professional tennis player — those strong arms and flat stomach.
Should I also mention his arctic-blue eyes, platinum-blond hair and, generally excellent physique more appropriate for a Michelangelo sculpture than for a priest? After a while that overindulgence in handsomeness became a pet-hate of mine; by the way I am sure Kirkegaard, a fierce critic of idealists, is turning in his grave. Laughing hard. Now do these types remind you of something?
When was the last time you saw so many good-looking people in one place? In a movie? Soap opera perchance? In a glossy magazine? A tv add? Not on a real street of course? Exactly my thoughts… Now let me pass to the characterization itself. It often happens when an author wants to twist the ball too much.
Let me illustrate that affliction by describing Nora, the main female lead, in more detail. She looks pretty young being petite and all and she has a way with children BUT she is also rather blunt with her language and one of the most feared Dommes around. Heroes with such an affliction feel spurious to me at best. Now the style. As a result a man Zach is getting an erection just because he can stroke a red Aston Martin, the car of the infamous James Bond.
Like, really stroking, from bumber to bumper. And pressing the horn. Oh dear, is this boy really fortyish? Then I found such a lovely sentence: Similar emergencies can be found in many sexual intercourse scenes. The cherry on the top of the cake should be left at the very end, right?
Here it is. One name. An extremely gifted sadist who can make you love the pain. Not even for one second. Now one simple question. How come? How it was even possible? Ok, mainly from his brothers. Imagine it or not but Catholic priests are not merely ornamental, they do have a lot of duties to perform and they rarely work alone, not in one of big city parishes anyway. Not to mention the fact that somebody would notice, sooner or later.
I am saying it is never as offhand and casual as presented here and take it from a girl born and raised in a Catholic country.
Simply unreal. You can trick one man for a long time and you can trick plenty of people for a short time — but never both.
Final verdict: I really cannot recommend this book to anyone with clear conscience. I say so mainly because it is bad literature masquerading as something new, ground-breaking and exciting using the oldest trick possible - sex. View all 53 comments. Lady Vigilante Feifei. An attempt to write a proper coherent one would be a pages review on how much I want to make babies with this book and everyone in it.
And let's face it, no one wants to read that unless it's written by Nora Sutherlin or Tiffany Reisz. This book, this series and all that is Tiffany Reisz; it deserves a class on its own.
Reading this was like falling in love all over again and falling HARD. I went on a blind date and it was love at first sight. What can I say about Nora? Utterly captivating, alluring, bold and snarky. By the halfway mark, I would let her whip me any way she wanted because she got me on a tight leash. Cut it short; I just wanted to make babies with her, there I said it.
Have I mentioned Nora is a lady? Let's face it, I'd go lesbian for her. I've read books that I adored the heroines. Heroines that I wanna be best friends with.
But Nora Sutherlin is in a whole other league. She is THE heroine. The one that I'd like to be. She owns the character and she owns it so f cking well. You guys must be wondering, "Jasmine, have you lost your mind?! And lastly, Tiffany Reisz writing is like no other. I know when I say I adore an author's writing usually, an adjective like exquisite or brilliant or amazingly beautiful comes to my mind easily. But with TR, there is no adjective that I can think of that puts justice to what she writes.
I'm thinking of other-worldly or along the lines of 'out of this universe' because the whole time I read it, I kept asking myself "What planet does this lady come from and how does she write like this?! The writing style is seriously beyond phenomenal and it astounds me on so many levels.
It's filled with contradictions that leave you in such a deep and profound state. I was sent into a trance by the seduction skills of her writing.
I absorbed every word this lady gave me and she gave me a one way ticket to the 8th circle heaven. It's really nothing like I've read before, it's not even mindfuckery, it's not magic but TR's writing is just another league on its own. Honestly I'd like to stay inside TR's head and build a colony there. It's about going in blind and let the writing take you by the hand. The writing alone will do its job in seducing you and send you spiraling into a pleasure like no other. This one sets new standards and for all those reasons alone, my love for this book and its characters is insurmountable.
Honestly I'd give this more than 10 stars because it's. My mind is consumed in its entirety. Now all you ladies are allowed to kick me for not reading this sooner.
Because God knows what I've been missing out on all my life before this book came along. I am supposed to BR this with my lovely ladies but so sorry I got way ahead of myself! Nora wouldn't let me go!!

I have been burned before with my high expectations so was a bit wary. I stayed up until 2. Is it a love story? Not really. Is it an erotic story? I am not sure how I would describe it. One woman, three men or even four, if we count Kingsley, who is a major part of her life. I found that fascinating. Maybe the fact that I was born and raised a Catholic helped me read it with a different perspective.
Instead, he found a pale, petite, beauty with wavy black hair barely contained in a loose knot at her nape. And no red leather in sight at all …. No offence. Must be the joys of having teenage children to keep me up to date with all things musical. He understands the purpose of pain and shame and humiliation.
For love. A drop of the craythur will always help. Zach reached inside his trench coat and brought out a brown paper bag.
From it he pulled a bottle of Irish whiskey and set it in front of her on her desk. Pain is a gift from God.
