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!

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!
