“If you’re a fan of the Original Sinners series, and a fan of Kingsley especially, then you don’t want to miss out on this standalone story!”
~ Under the Covers

I’ll be honest, this book almost passed me by without me knowing it was out. I was happy to get my hands on this book because I’m such a big fan of the Original Sinners books. I was even more thrilled when I learned that this one focuses a lot on my favorite character in the series, Kingsley.

THE CHATEAU is set in the past and it goes over some of Kingsley’s adventures in the French military intelligence agency. If you know Tiffany Reisz then you may know that the Story of O is a heavy influence on her writing and it’s very evident in this book. I found that there were a lot of parts to love with this story, but there were also many weak points as well.

First of all, I really felt like the beginning was off. The story starts off very slowly and I even wondered if Reisz had lost her touch for a moment. The dialogue just didn’t flow nor did the narration. But I think things really pick up once the women in the story make an appearance. Once that occurs, I felt like suddenly things got much interesting and even the dialogue picked up. So I’m not sure what happened there but I feel like there were definitely some parts that were better than others.

Nevertheless, if you’re a fan of the Original Sinners series, and a fan of Kingsley especially, then you don’t want to miss out on this standalone story!

About Tiffany Reisz

Tiffany Reisz lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her boyfriend (a reformed book reviewer) and two cats (one good, one evil). She graduated with a B.A. in English from Centre College in Danville, Kentucky and is making both her parents and her professors proud by writing BDSM erotica under her real name.

When not under arrest, Tiffany enjoys Latin Dance, Latin Men, and Latin Verbs. She dropped out of a conservative southern seminary in order to pursue her dream of becoming a smut peddler. Johnny Depp’s aunt was her fourth grade teacher. Her first full-length novel THE SIREN was inspired by a desire to tie up actor Jason Isaacs (on paper). She hopes someday life will imitate art (in bed).

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

Sounds like a good read. I’ve never read the Story of O but I’ve heard it’s good so that makes me want to read this one even more.
