Series: The Original Sinners #2
Published by Harlequin MIRA
The Original Sinners is simply riveting. By far, the most fascinating series I’ve read this year.
There was a small chance that it could all be a fluke. I’ve never read a book that so wholly owned me. Earlier this year, I read THE SIREN and became utterly enthralled and shocked by the dark erotica. For some reason, I went into this book thinking that there was no way Reisz could pull this on me twice. There’s simply no way.
But she did. Oh, she did. And she blew me away.
Hear this: Tiffany Reisz is a master storyteller. Reisz may have started out with an erotic women’s fiction story but ended up creating fascinating characters you will never forget!
In THE ANGEL, we find our favorite erotic writer, Nora Sutherlin doing something out of character: she is hiding. When Soren is under consideration of becoming Bishop of the Diocese, Nora must hightail it before anyone can suspect her relationship with him. Michael, the young submissive we read about in THE SIREN tags along with her as they hide at Griffin’s residence. This is where things get good! In the time Nora stays at Griffin’s, she is to train Michael to be a submissive.
There is a reporter named Suzanne who is onto Soren and she makes it her next goal to uncover the secrets he so expertly hides. However, what she thinks if Soren’s dirty little secret is in fact not what Soren is afraid of uncovering. Though Suzanne was my least favorite of the characters, she ended up with the best sex scene! I won’t say more on that because you will have to read to find out!
Easily the best thing about this book apart from its stellar writing is Michael and Griffin. Going into this book, I had no idea what was going to happen. I didn’t read the blurb so I was in for a total shock when I learned about Michael and Griffin. They quickly became the reason why I loved this book so much. THE ANGEL turned out to be different than THE SIREN. The first book in the series didn’t have a romance, but in this book, Reisz delivers a fantastic one. Readers will be bow down to Reisz once they’ve read this book.
As I read THE SIREN, I was intrigued, but very afraid of Soren’s character. His passion is pain and nothing is ever quite simple with him. THE ANGEL delves deeper into his character and I was astounded by what Reisz revealed about him. It made me see him in an entirely different light and made me understand why he acts the way he does. Reisz simply pens the most compelling characters. Reisz also pushes readers to their limits with the sex in this book. Though it’s definitely not the first time I’ve read a blood play scene, it’s the most memorable.
There are simply no words that can capture how I feel about this book. So let me leave you with this…
THE ANGEL is addictively dark, erotic and shocking. Give yourself a treat and read outside of the box.
