Before she became Manhattan's most famous dominatrix, Nora Sutherlin was merely a girl called Eleanor… Rebellious, green-eyed Eleanor never met a rule she didn't want to break. She's sick of her mother's zealotry and the confines of Catholic school, and declares she'll never go to church again. But her first glimpse of beautiful, magnetic Father Marcus Stearns—Søren to her and only her—and his lust-worthy Italian motorcycle is an epiphany. Eleanor is consumed—yet even she knows being in love with a priest can't be right. But when one desperate mistake nearly costs Eleanor everything, it is Søren who steps in to save her. When she vows to repay him with complete obedience, a whole world opens before her as he reveals to her his deepest secrets that will change everything. Danger can be managed—pain, welcomed. Everything is about to begin.
I tend to start all my Tiffany Reisz reviews with this disclaimer…
Please please please do not read this book unless you have an open mind and can truly embrace the idea of a Catholic priest as a sexual being. This is not a series for everyone so I will not be offended if you choose to skip this one because you can’t get past Søren being a priest. Also this book does have an underage female lead for a good portion of it and that I know can trigger issues with many people.
Ok now that I have warned people I have to say “I FREAKIN ADORED THIS BOOK!!!” Tiffany once again made me cry and scared the hell out of me while at the same time giving me moments that made me laugh my ass off plus moments that were sexy as hell. She’s great at taking my emotions thru the wringer but I wouldn’t trade one tortured moment of it!
Like usual my reviews of this series tend to be on the shorter side because while I want to gush and tell you everything that made me love the book I don’t want to spoil your own enjoyment of it. We start this story in a dark place with Nora struggling to find her bearings after some extreme pain. She ends up being comforted by a younger man who will prove to be someone you will fall in love with. He’s amazing in so many ways and the fact that he is willing to submit to Nora in every way she needs is just icing on the cake. I loved getting to see the story of how Eleanor and Søren came to be the people we met in The Siren by virtue of the stories Nora tells this sexy man. Seeing his reactions to the story made it even more real in many ways and I appreciated the way this unfolded.
Some of my favorite moments:
1. The desk and Eleanor… yes that scene where she… and …. (I’m a tease and I know it)
2. When she first meets Kingsley
3. Søren drunk
4. The bed scene… the one where S does… and damn was that HOT as hell.
5. Kingsley… well hell I love seeing Kingsley so ya know this isn’t a surprise
6. Nora and her young man… What can I say I loved this even as something else had to give because of it but :-X
Ok I think I am going to end this review on that because I really want you to get to have the same fun I did while reading it. The surprises and emotions that will come as you read this with no spoilers is sooooooo worth it.
