A Review by Jenn Fraser of The Siren by Tiffany Reisz

Nora is an erotica novelist, working on making it big.  She has a devoted following, but wants to break into mainstream with her erotic romances. She's sexy, provocative and in control, despite her submissive past.  Zach is her recently separated English editor, living in New York and assigned to the most difficult and frustrating assignment of his career: edit Nora and turn her work into a best seller.   Zach and Nora have instant chemistry, but she still craves the very man she walked away from: her former Master, Soren.   Soren is the man she could never have completely, with a deep dark past and an even more shocking present.  To complicate matters, Zach still loves his wife.  And Nora has a live-in intern who inspires some hot fantasies.  Their relationship crosses some lines while steering clear of others.   This is supposed to be Zach’s last New York assignment before he moves to LA.  But will he and Nora find a way to work together without crossing their own lines?  

I have a new obsession and it’s The Original Sinners series by Tiffany Reisz!  When I stumble upon something so good, I feel like I've won a prize.  It’s highly atmospheric…like, turn off all outside distractions and dig in to a very serious and very sexy read.  I crave intelligent, complex characters and dialog. The Siren delivers on all fronts.  Nora is a multifaceted character and I loved seeing all of her sides.  She and Zach have a chemistry that burns up the pages.  Wesley is beautiful, funny, and infectiously endearing.  And Soren…I was frightened of him, felt like I held my breath and barely moved when he appeared on the page.  Over six feet tall, muscular, blond…a true sadist who loves Nora beyond reason.  Delicious to read his scenes.    As you can see, this is not a tale of one man and one woman.  It’s not erotic romance, but more erotic literature.  Dark BDSM is featured heavily, though some is implied and not played out in front of the reader. It's an examination of palpably real characters that can't be boxed into the usual archetypes.  How each of these characters navigates through the complex interplay of emotions is extraordinary and beautiful.  I rooted for all of them to find their way to happiness and fulfillment.  Next up is The Angel and I am starting it NOW!
