The Original Sinners: Red Years Book II. No safe word can protect the heart. Infamous erotica author and accomplished dominatrix Nora Sutherlin is. Infamous erotica author and accomplished dominatrix Nora Sutherlin is doing something utterly out of character this summer: hiding. While her longtime lover,, .
Michael tapped on her bedroom door. She rebuilt her life, re-created herself. He sat in the tenth pew from the back, two rows behind Nora's usual spot. So it's all good. Want to Read saving…. It seemed incredibly painful, yet unbelievably intimate.
In the years she and Soren had spent together-those ten beautiful years in his collar before the incident, until she'd left him-they usually spent two or three nights a week together at the most. She hated being at home alone these days. The house seemed too big, too empty, too quiet. Soren's hands left her face and reached around her neck.
She heard a click, felt something give way, and Soren removed her white leather collar. As always, the moment her collar came off her neck, she felt something tighten around her heart. Soren opened the rosewood box that sat on his bedside table, took out his Roman collar and replaced it with Nora's collar.
Du er mit hjerte. You are my heart. With a dramatic moan Nora collapsed against his chest. Now go. You're running late, and I believe you recall what happened the last time you were late for Mass. But I sort of enjoyed it, so that's not much of a threat.
Eleanor, you could always move closer. Have you considered that? For about five seconds before deciding she'd rather cut off her arm than sell her house. I want to keep it. She'd said no then and she was saying no now. She knew he could order her to move closer, and she would if he made her. But so far it hadn't come to that. Soren nodded and Nora pulled away from him. Sunday afternoons belonged to them. Soren's parishioners always left him alone on Sunday afternoons. They assumed he was busy praying.
Not quite. He had, without a doubt, the most handsome face of any man she'd ever known. The most handsome face, the keenest mind, the wickedest libido, the sexiest body and the most devoted heart,,,.
For the five years she'd lived apart from him, four had been agony. And now they'd been back together for over a year and everything was perfect. Well, almost perfect. He lay in bed with his hand down his boxer shorts and contemplated finding a tie to make this process more enjoyable. But he'd promised Father S that he wouldn't hurt himself anymore.
Father S had no objections to erotic asphyxiation but he forbade Michael from doing it alone.
I'd rather not repeat that experience," Father S had told him, and Michael knew he would never forgive himself if he put his priest-the man who'd saved his life-through that nightmare again. So instead, Michael merely closed his eyes and conjured the memory of Nora Sutherlin tying him down, guiding him inside her and clenching so tightly around him he'd flinched.
That one sensory memory worked as usual, and Michael came hard on his hand. Forgoing a tissue, Michael got up and headed straight to the shower. He spent a long time in the shower, longer than most guys his age probably did. Of course, most guys his age didn't have hair that fell to their shoulders and a predilection for self-abuse in the literal sense.
Scalding water wasn't quite as much fun as scalding candle wax, but it was the best he had. After his shower Michael toweled off and dressed. He dried his long hair and pulled it into a low ponytail. He ironed his white button-down and his black cargo pants and even put on a tie. But not for erotic reasons,,,unless he counted trying to impress Nora Sutherlin as an erotic reason. As usual, before leaving his bedroom, Michael rolled up his sleeves and rubbed liquid vitamin E onto the white scars on both of his wrists.
The vitamin E supposedly helped scars heal and fade, but so far the effect had been minimal. He strapped his wide leather watchband on his right wrist and pulled a black wristband on his left before heading to his mom's room.
Michael tapped on her bedroom door. Still, he always had to ask. I have to run errands this morning. Good thing Sacred Heart was only a few blocks away.
He pushed on his sunglasses, grabbed his skateboard and his backpack on the way out the door, and hit the street. Skating straight up to the front steps of Sacred Heart, he flipped his board up and tucked it under his arm. Before entering the sanctuary, he went to the church secretary's office, dug something out of his backpack and sent a quick fax. Michael headed to the sanctuary and saw Nora hadn't arrived yet. He sat in the tenth pew from the back, two rows behind Nora's usual spot.
Her little shadow, seven-year-old Owen Perry, already waited for his Miss Ellie to show up. Owen adored Nora-Miss Ellie-and did nothing to hide that fact. He sat next to her during Mass and sometimes even curled up on her lap. Once Michael walked past them and saw Owen lying half-asleep on her knee as Nora mindlessly ran her fingers over his tiny forehead.
Both of them had wavy black hair. Anyone seeing them for the first time would think Nora was the kid's mom. It bugged him seeing Owen cuddling up to Nora.
He envied that little kid for so fearlessly showering Nora with affection and attention. Michael would kiss her feet if she'd let him. But then again, he also envied Nora. She at least had someone who wasn't afraid to touch her in public. Michael couldn't even remember the last time anyone had touched him. Even his own mother had stopped hugging him after his father moved out. Nora didn't just have people who would touch her in public.
She had Father S, who touched her in private. Michael secretly worried someone would find out about Father S and Nora. Everybody knew Nora wrote erotica, and the church secretly loved having a mini-celebrity in their midst.
And everybody at church worshipped Father S. But Nora and Father S had fallen in love when she was only fifteen. If their past, and even worse, their present, came out,,, Michael didn't even want to think how bad it would get. Checking his watch, Michael saw he had just enough time to run for a drink of water. He stood up quickly and headed to the door. As he exited the sanctuary Nora breezed in through the front doors wearing a tight white skirt and a tailored black blouse.
Her long hair was swept up in a loose knot and she wore a little smile at the corner of her full pale red lips. He could only imagine what Father S had been doing to her that morning to put that grin on her face-could imagine and often did imagine. Nora came toward him and Michael froze. They never talked to each other-not in words anyway, not since that one night together.
But as usual he gave her a little wave. Instead of waving back, Nora reached out and took his hand in hers for the whisper of a second. She squeezed his fingers and let him go, walking off as if nothing at all had passed between them.
Michael gazed down at his hand. She'd touched him. When Michael looked up, one of the married men in the congregation who had a bad habit of flirting with Nora sat staring at him. Staring at him with a look Michael recognized as envy. Michael stood a little straighter and walked back to his pew.
He paused a moment before changing his mind, taking two steps forward and dropping down right next to Nora.
She didn't look at him, just chatted with Owen about a drawing he'd done for her. But Nora snuck her hand out again and pinched Michael hard enough on the thigh he knew he'd have a bruise tomorrow. Michael smiled. God, he loved Sundays. I'm sleeping. Soren certainly can. Now it suddenly dawned on him. BDSM was a game —a game where both players won. I loved her without hurting her.

Seriously, Tiffany Reisz continues to add more and more men to my list of people who I'd gladly have my way with six ways to Sunday.
The moment his glorious entry was all "wearing nothing but a kilt and Doc Marten boots" , I knew I'd be a complete goner with this man. And good lord, his humor is to dieeeee forrrrr!! Michael's too formal. I'm not formal. You're lucky I've even got pants on today.
Can't remember. I changed it to Alfred years ago. My first crush on a dude was batman. My love for that Godlike man cannot get any deeper than I last met him. Is he a sadist that scares me? Does that completely turn me on? He exudes a persona that intimidates you but yet leaves you utterly captivated by him. TR's writing screams perfection on every level!!
Even with multiple perspectives going on in this book, what a seamless flow from one to another. Plus the chain effect of multiple events and how it all connects, it leaves me mindblown.
Everyone gets an equal shine of the spotlight without focusing heavily on only one, it was brilliantly balanced out throughout the book. Pick a position. Trust me, no matter how acrobatic, we can do it. But most of all Off to the next one NOW!!! View all 79 comments. All our favourite characters are back, embracing their kink, living unashamedly in their sexy underworld.
I think this is more playful than The Siren, not as angsty, the characters are all, mostly, having fun. Her only sadness is the loss of Wesley. Griffin — super rich trustfund baby, switch and playboy extraordinaire, ex-drug addict, rambunctious puppy of the kink scene and lovable rogue. He has a butler he calls Alfred who quite clearly hates his guts and has the best lines in the book and is looking forward to a summer of Nora submitting to him. Michae just about broke my heart.
He will need someone as powerful as Nora to take control and care of him and guide him to more self-awareness and acceptance. This is truly a coming of age story for Michael and I very much enjoyed his journey and his growth.
He is a sadist of the highest order, only causing someone physical pain can arouse him and he and Nora indulge in some extreme edgeplay before she goes away that is most definitely not for the faint-hearted. We learn a whole lot more about his past, his family, his motivations — I defy you not to love him and his actions by the end of the book.
He has an important role to play here too. God, I am so in lust with him! He is her one regret and she misses him deeply. This may not be classic romance but true and honest love is definitely to be found here in more places than one. These people are overtly sexual, unashamedly embracing their darker sides and Nora is, once again, a formidable, dangerous, beautiful central character. There are not many heroines written as strongly as her in erotic fiction.
So, this is just a few more chapters in the lives of our kinksters — we learn a lot more about the central characters and are able to answer questions left unanswered by The Siren and truly get to understand their motivations better. We know them all so much better by the end and the ending is a shocker — how could you do it to us Queen Tiff?? It left me salivating for The Prince which I suspect will show a return to the darker side.

This book invoked raw emotions in me I can't explain even if I tried. Griffin and Michael. Griffin is hilarious, easy-going and protective to the core. Michael is a young man, broken by all the cruelties life has given, yet still not weak as he tries to understand and take control relative to his desire to submit ; of his life and his desires. His first step into the unknown and his utter determination to grasp the very thing that which makes him whole is awe-inspiring and relatable.
And the two of them together are the epitome of a soul-deep friendship, new beginnings, and an everlasting, irrevocable love. January 28, View all 54 comments. Jun 28, Stacia the club rated it really liked it Recommended to Stacia the club by: ARC buddy read. Adult review for erotic content. I think I'd rather be doing laundry than writing this review right now.
I wish I were kidding. It's hard to write reviews for books when you want to emphasize what you did like while not completely avoiding what you didn't like. Good men don't hit women. Maybe if we did, the subject wouldn't freak people out so much. I probably prefer it that way if you want to know the truth. Kink I can handle. Somber moments in the middle of my erotica, not so much.
Just the sight of a Megan Hart book can give me hives because I know I'm going to spend less time turned on and more time bummed out. Thankfully, I wasn't on the depression train for this book. Just a warning though if you haven't read my review for book 1 - if there is any possibility that you might be bothered by religion and sex crossing paths not in a blatantly offensive way but more in the aspect of two worlds colliding , you might be better off steering clear.
Still not sure I want to write this review. I already know that everyone's going to be all, "ahhhmaaazing" and 5 star The Angel because the book is an interesting and complex read. The writing is still exceptionally polished and the characters are all multi-faceted. I can find absolutely no fault in this area. I'm sure my friends are going to give me the glare-down because I didn't rate the book 5 stars.
However, I have a horrible confession to make As in, I borderline hate the woman and the decisions she makes. Sometimes in life we just don't get everything we want. I think someone forgot to tell her that. I said it. Which kind of sucks hard, considering that she is kind of a big character. If you want to know why I'll just leave it at "too personal. But I still love Wesley. And now I love Michael and Griffin you will have to pry the image of Griffin in a kilt and docs out of my brain with a crowbar because that pretty picture ain't going anywhere.
And I don't completely hate Soren he appeared in a dream riding a unicorn - another great mental pic there. So it's all good. The kink itself didn't push any boundaries of mine but I could see where there might be some comfort zone issues for someone who is new to the genre. If anything, I found myself assessing the characters and their interactions with each other more than I did their sexual preferences. When erotica is given more plot than play, I'm more likely to treat it like I would any other mainstream book, which means less allowances for fantasy sake.
If characters act in such a way that I'd not like them in a real world setting, I'm more likely to take notice. Overall feelings? I like that there are more characters coming into the picture for me to bond with.
At least this way, I can focus on the stories I am more interested in and push back small annoyances. The anticipation for book 3 will be great because it means even more Wesley time! Sure, I'll be continuing on with the series. Lastly, it was nice to see some offbeat and unexpected humor pop up in a few places. I'm not religious like you and the mistress, but if I'm not mistaken Noah's ark was about the destruction of the entire world, right?

I feel like I need to rectify what I said about the slice to the labia before I start my review. I did not say it was non-consensual or that Nora's body was being sliced up, which in fact it was, but not against her will.
Not once did I say that or ever imply that it was. It was all consensual. Safe, sa 3. Safe, sane and consensual. Alright, maybe not that sane to me The slice to the labia was one of seven slices to Nora's body that she was willingly accepting from someone she loves deeply.
All I did was state that I didn't think I could read much more because of a specific scene and then explained why in my comments. That is entirely my choice. If I feel like something as severe as a small incision to her labia was enough for me not to read it anymore, then so be it.
But I didn't stop reading it. I pushed through with help and I am happy to say that I did! In the end I enjoyed the book very much actually and I am looking forward to the next book. I needed to see it through Nora's eyes which meant stepping out of my bubble and pushing my boundaries, which I did. I can accept how bloodplay or cutting can be a fantasy to a lot of people, but it isn't one for this chic.
Everybody has a little kink in them, even the softest vanilla readers. I think people who enjoy the kinkier side of BDSM need to step into my softly padding french vanilla bubble and see where I am coming from as well. Call me naive, but I find it difficult to believe most people are okay with this. I'm sure the author had to have known that this is something of a controversial matter and it would get people talking.
This is hardcore BDSM here. The cuts to the other body parts did bother me, but nothing like the labia one. The blood and knife got to me. The slight sipping of blood?
Yeah, I didn't like that either. I was quivering on the inside- and not from pleasure. I mean, is nothing sacred anymore? Apparently I have hard limits when it comes to reading now, but don't we all? Wouldn't you want to be aware of something like this if it isn't your cup of tea? The Angel is a dark and abrasive yet sensual read. It's eloquently written and will take you places you've never been. It will evoke many, many emotions from you.
I went from happy to pissed off, to hot and bothered to morally offended. It's a forbidden kind of read however you just cannot take your eyes away from it.
I can't even say Tiffany Reisz pushed the envelope with this one. There are no boundaries left to push, as Ms. Reisz has toppled them down long ago with The Siren! Nora is a trip. I would love to have a friend like her! Her wicked and warped sense of humor was some of the best parts of the story for me.
She's outgoing and fun loving, but like most, she has deep seeded issues she's working to get the kink out of. We watch Nora struggle with her love for Wesley in making herself believe she is over him, when she is clearly not.
On top of that, there is a journalist out to uncover secrets about Soren who happens to be attracted to him at the same time. In addition, Nora is forced to stay away from Soren for the summer by living with Griffin and her charge, Michael. Aside from the problem previously stated above, I would say I enjoyed this book to a degree.
I found myself skimming over the long drawn out parts with the journalist. It did nothing for me and I feel as though it could be cut down a bit. The one part of the book I found so moving involved Michael's mother at the end. It brought tears to my eyes. I hated the way Michael's parents treated him. They made him feel like he was worthless. It hurt so bad on the inside not only for him, but for me as well!
But what the mother did was so gratifying in my eyes. The ending The ending made up for all everything! I almost wish I hadn't read this book until Prince is released. It made my heart beat so hard and so fast! My mind was racing. I couldn't even think straight! Oh it's going to be Wesley's story! I cannot wait! On a side note- If you have any type of religious affiliation whatsoever, you will most likely find this book offensive. Priest was mentioned times in this book and in most instances it was said in sexual situations.
No, I did not go counting, the kindle did that for me. I felt as though the word was used heavily more so in this book than The Siren. We don't need to be reminded constantly Soren is a priest and obviously what he is partaking in is a sin. This book was provided by the publisher in return for an honest review. View all 52 comments.
Tricia Meyer Thank you for this review! I was about to give up at page 70 because the whole bloody business was just too much for me. But I am going to push ahead Thank you for this review! But I am going to push ahead and see how it goes thanks to your review. Taryn You're welcome! Just keep reading. The bloody thing was eh, but overall a great book! Jul 26, This woman has become one of my favorite authors EVER so quickly, and has practically ruined me for all the other erotica books out there with her master writing skills.
From the moment you read the first sentence on the first page, you get sucked into the story and all you can do is try to connect the dots…the tiny details here and there, seemingly unimportant but rather crucial for the backbone of the story. Some of the clues I could catch, some of them I could notice only when the mystery was already uncovered, but I was left in awe every single time.
Yes, he was my favorite thing about this book! Most importantly though, I loved the way he silently and slowly fell in love with a certain broken Angel … I loved how fiercely he could love someone and how willing he was to fight for that person.
Thank God for his presence in this story! No, it has another, much deeper reason behind it. Now I know I do. He has reasons. He has scars, so deep. Take off your glasses of judgement and look at him with naked eyes. I just want to say, I admire his naivety and his big heart, but I am absolutely disappointed with him.
He is 20 years old now, but he was acting like a year-old who stumped his feet because he lost his favorite toy. And lastly… Nora Sutherlin. The woman that I absolutely loathed while reading The Siren , not because of her wicked ways, but because of her selfishness. The woman that has loved a man that needs to hurt her, nearly twenty years. The woman that kept dreaming of a boy with big brown eyes with flecks of gold in them in every chapter of this book.
The woman that repeated times that she is still in love with her Priest and that she will always come back to him.
The woman that climaxed with another man, but with the name of that boy who played Battleship with her, on her lips. In my mind, she is a woman that has fallen out of love with a man that, at some point, became just too much to handle, and she found love again in the arms of an innocent.
You smell like summer. She needs to try summer now. And as much as it breaks my heart, I get it. I even wish she never gets bored of summer. I wish she never craves winter again. Winter is better off without her anyway. And Nora didn't walk and she didn't crawl and she didn't fly.
She ran. View all 47 comments. OMG I want all of them!!! Can I have them??????? It was amazing!!! Definately Tiffany Reisz became one of my favourite author!!! She manage to make me think Soren not so bad at all!! In this book not only do we have the chance to reconnect with the characters we fell in love in the first book but also we have the chance to get to know them all better!!
I love all the characters!! They feel so real to me!! Du er mit hjerte. You are my heart. He was the only character that I truly disliked after the first book! But now what can I say about him??? He was so freaking sweet and caring.
Nora is devoted to him and that will never change To avoid being an even bigger liability,Nora goes into hiding and takes the young Michael with her to Griffin Fiske's estate So the three have a lovely summer holiday in which Nora undertakes to train Michael I love both guys!! They are cute!
Michael smiled and for the first time in his life knew exactly what to say and how to say it. We also see a little more of Kingsley. He is very intriguing! I have had a hard time trying to figure out Kingsley. He had a huge secret exposed in this book.. But we will learn more for him in the next book! I can't wait to learn more about him!! Nora is still Nora and I love her!
She's hilarious and sexy as hell!! This book was just plain amazing!! It's absolutely one of my favourite books!!! View all 83 comments. Anyway, I tweaked my original review a little, added some graphics and thoughts.
Let's get this orgy started. In my opinion you have to be fairly open minded to read these books, even by erotica and dark read standards. I think I read a few more dark reads since I first wrote this LOL But once you commit to the characters and the world they live in there is no going back.
A lot of the unanswered questions from The Siren and some huge gaps in the timeline get filled in and man is that some story telling. So, to appease all minds That alone in my book deserves 6 Stars. As I said, warped priorities. The Angel picks up where The Siren ends Nora is finally back with the sadistic blond hunk of a man.
No complains there. Wes is somewhere else. Major plus! Clue in a possible promotion for our favourite priest, a nosy reporter who by the way made me nervous like no one else in this book and a little Angel in search for love and acceptance. And of course Griffin, Nora and Michael penned up in a mansion over the summer. Recipe for a masterpiece. And I'm doing happy dances around the house Some outer scars. Some inner. The way she plays with all of the chess pieces aka the men in her life and as seen above some of the women, is downright enviable.
King is still such an enigma here. A few glimpses here and there, but nothing concrete. Speaking of our favourite priest. We get a far better understanding about him in this second book. Quite a few questions about his upbringing and past are addressed. Some of it is quite shocking and heartbreaking, but one thing is for sure, he truly deserves his larger than life reputation. Oh, Ms. Michael is such a precious little thing and thank god jailbait is finally legal He is wild and funny and just as unappoligetic as dear Nora.
Nothing else needs to be said. Never forget the Butler Thank you for your time. On to the next one. Nov 12, Debra rated it it was amazing Shelves: All summer long, she would top Michael. She'd have the best of both worlds and no vanilla sex at all.
This series is so unique, captivating and powerfully written that it easily deserves to be on favorite series -list. And Tiffany Reisz has easily become on of my all time favorite writers.
There just isn't "All summer long Griffin would top her. There just isn't anything out there that even resembles the original storylines of this series in the slightest. She made Wesley leave her house and she hasn't heard from him in almost a year. He knows there will be a lot of extra attention to his personal life and he wants to avoiding, at all costs, that anyone would find out about his relationship with Nora. That way, he can concentrate on the intrusive reporter that's determined to unravel all of his well kept secrets, without having to worry about Nora getting involved.
Instead, Nora will be spending the summer months, together with "The Angel" Michael , in the presence of an old friend Griffin Fiske He's easygoing, funny and surprisingly caring and I liked him from the start.
His fun personality was a nice and welcome distraction along the more heavy, dramatic moments throughout the story. Nora and Griffin have known each other for a long time and they have a a strong friendship. During the summer Nora will teach Michael how to become a good submissive. Originally she's the one who will top Michael while Griffin tops her.
But at the same time, Michael and Griffin start growing closer to each other too. From the moment they met, they both felt attracted to each other but neither of them was ready to admit their true feelings.
As the summer progresses however, they both find it harder and harder to hide what they're feeling. I loved Griffin and Michael together! Although Griffin is a lot more experienced in the BDSM lifestyle than Michael, neither of them had ever been in a real relationship.
They both have a lot to learn but they obviously care about each other a lot and they're both willing to make an effort for each other. As for Nora, she finds herself often still thinking about Wesley, her former assistant, roommate and best friend. She finds herself comparing the two of them and it's obvious, the two of them could not be more different.
And if you live in the presence of winter, you never have summer. That's an amazing smell too. Wesley is like summer. Both of them have their own special meaning to Nora. Did such a thing even exist? Or will she give the lightness of summer and Wesley and a chance Song of Solomon 8: Another amazing book by Tiffany Reisz, this woman officially rocked my world!
The characters TR creates are with absolute perfection and very realistic, you just wish to be like them, better yet to be with them. Half-French, all pervert.
I seriously hope his true love comes back to him. I love him, Nora. Everything about them, their innocence, bonding, affection, sexual tension and mostly their love was to die for!
Michael just like his name is a beautiful Angel, he learns to accept his desire and comes out of his shell to embrace the love he feels for Griffin. Oh boy! Never knew guy on guy action could be so damn HAWT!! Everything about them is perfect, did I say how much I love them?! I think I Kinda Love him. I said it!!! Never knew I will stop hating him let alone adore him. Nora Dear Nora, Have you lost your fucking mind?! Will you for love of the god make up your mind about your true feelings!
I will die in my collar. I know where I heard that! You almost said the same thing about Wes. You are still awesome minus being emotionally stupid! Rating Clarification: No pain no belts no whips no slaps no humiliation but a perfect lover! Buddy read with insanely awesome Eda! Many waters cannot quench love, nor will rivers overflow it.
There aren't many series out there where I have much desire to re-read them. I mean, I know the story and how it ends. What's really to gain? What did I gain rereading The Angel? An even deeper, profound respect for this author.
I recently tried to explain the TOS phenomenon to a friend and I compared it to an episode of "Friends," where there's not one or two MCs, but a conglomerate of characters, all adding their piece to the puzzle, making it perfectly balanced in the end. Typically, books with several characters tend to muck the story for me, almost confusing me, but Ms. Reisz carries her readers through their lives seamlessly. Each book moving us forward, all the while, giving us background at the same time.
Happiness, sadness, pain, suffering, victory but never defeat. The biggest highlight in this book for me Go buy yourself something pretty. To the nursery. It's Jamison, I think. My first crush on a dude was Batman. OMG the guy is so stinking endearingly cute. A filthy rich trust-fund kid, he grabbed my attention from the minute he waltzed down his mansion stairs in a Scottish kilt and Doc Maartens. Definitely a site to behold, I'm sure.
Consummating that relationship even more so! Each character has their flaws, their crosses to bear, yet their combined bond and support for each other is unbreakable. God help anyone who messes with one "of them. Since then, I've delved into more MM reads and I found this book a lot more enjoyable.
I feel like reviewing any Original Sinners book is futal since the plot thickens with each book and any details are serious spoilers. Just know, there's a character for everyone to love in TOS. Ya like an intimidating, omnipresent, yet reserved persona in a hero? A sarcastic, smooth talking Frenchmen? A tough, snarky heroine? A sweet, virginal, beautiful yet scarred victim? A crazy, sarcastic, rich Bisexual Dom? You name it, TOS has it!
God, I'm such a Frenchman whore View all 50 comments. May 27, Karen rated it it was amazing Shelves: All I can say at this late hour is "You lucky fucking bitch!
I can gather my thoughts on this one!!! What a fabulous story!!! Michael Dimir. First and foremost is Father Marcus Lennox Stearns The breathtakingly handsome and brilliant Catholic priest who also happens to be a sadist and The 8th Circle's lead and most feared Dominant.
And oh my He is sexy and alluring.. He has a capacity to love that compares with no other. I wouldn't have thought it possible I want more!!!! Finally, I understand his love for Nora and his relationship with Kingsley. Scar tissue, she'd once read, was the strongest of all tissues.
And I cannot fail to mention my latest crush Griffin Fucking Fiske!!!!! Incredibly hot, and gregarious, it is impossible to NOT fall in love with him!!!!!!
And that vision of him in that kilt It was also wonderful watching him fall in love with Mick!! Just perfect Tiff!!!! Loved every second of it!!!! Great witty banter! It was frequent and fabulous There were also many incredibly touching moments, tearful moments, moments of Nora making peace with herself and her life choices. I also love how she described their smells.. I think Tiffany Reisz is a brilliant writer, and I will wait with bated breath for her next release The Prince Thanks Tiff for sharing your work with us!!!!!!!!

He is also a very complex man and it's really hard to understands him BUT in the end he did something for Nora and I'd never guessed that He loves her so much and he gave something to her just to make her happy And now God have mercy on my soul because of that gesture this sadistic son of a bitch owns my heart View all 3 comments.
Story picks up a year after the ending of. Nora moves on physically but her heart is still broken. She is in full denial and gets surprised when she finds tears in her eyes thinking about a certain Big Brown Eyes.
This makes me wonder who exactly has the majority of her heart Soren or Wes? But since Nora compares him to "Eric" I will concede on this. But hey with this series I learned to each their own. Aside from heavy BDSM stuff and being a sadist he's a compassionate, intelligent, honorable, generous, and lovable man. View all 88 comments. Jul 12, Karla rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Readers who think outside the box.
If the unconventional is the solution in healing persons, who might otherwise not fare well with so-called accepted practices, what can it hurt, when they are hurting so much already?!?! Their normal might not be yours, but if it permits them to feel whole and ultimately endure, who are we to judge? If it hurts no one other than themselves, but that hurt has the power to heal, and they give themselves to someone unconditionally, one who can give them what them so desire…who are we to criticize?
I can't remember when a book turned my world upside down, had my heart in my throat, gave my brain a workout Somehow though, this one knocked me for a bigger loop, sucked the life out of me!
The Angel topped The Siren from the bottom. The second book had even more control and command over me than the first one did! This book is like a Jack-in-the-Box…page, page, page…shocker…page, page, page…shocker, over and over.
The story, the characters, their circumstances, how they deal and overcome, is fascinating, debatable and highly addictive! The book is very erotic and some of that eroticism is questionable, especially when it comes to Michael. It seemed incredibly painful, yet unbelievably intimate. Maybe, I can't deny that I'm curious. Soren is an imposing, arrogant, extraordinary presence! I was drawn to him once again, he holds all the power, but uses it very carefully.
Yes, honorable, and extremely protective, giving and loving!! Nora was Nora. Funny, sassy, flies by the seat of her pants and wants nothing more than to do right by Michael; albeit it will have you raising your eyebrows, as does her relationship with Griffin. Griffin stole my heart in this book for all he is and what he does…I love him and have a new found respect for him!!
Oh my, Kingsley, do tell, what goes through that mind of yours. It is sensual, passionate, humorous, heart-wrenching, but also has some unbelievably heart-warming moments. It messes with your mind, what you want to detest, abhor, and despise…starts to make sense. The dialogue is amazing and deliciously witty!! Just a warning… this read is not for everyone, and you have to have an open mind, open heart and understand the book for what it is.
Pretty amazing when The Siren held that spot until The Angel edged it out with its awesomeness! This amazing song, I'm not Jesus , is dedicated to all the Adams in the world, huge view spoiler [ and for Michael, Soren and Elizabeth who were hurt so bad at the hands of their fathers hide spoiler ] …your pain and suffering is unforgiveable!!
Dirty little secret, Dirty little lies. Say your prayers and comb your hair, Save your soul tonight. Drift among the faithful, Bury your desires. Aberrations fill your head, You need a place to hide And I am Do you remember me? And the kid I used to be? When your world's come crashing down I want to relive.
Your god ain't looking down on me! I'm not Jesus, Jesus wasn't there! You confess it all away, But it's only shit to me Your god ain't looking down on me! I'm not Jesus, I will not forgive!
No I won't! No I won't. I thought you were a good man, I thought you talked to god. You hippocratic, messianic, And child abusing-turned-satanic. Do you remember? When your own world comes undone, Let me be the one to say: I'm not Jesus I will not forgive! Oh, I will not forgive, No, I will not forgive!

Yes, I definitely think so. Did I like him? Not really. Did I want him? Most definitely. Nora, she is the best. Absolutely love her. I want to be her. The amount of cases that have been exposed, especially in Ireland about Priests being moved from Parish to fucking Parish!
There was so much going on in this book. It seemed at the end of every chapter a new revelation was there for us to consider. We are introduced to Suzanne, a reporter, who has demons of her own. She hates the Catholic Church and for very good reasons.
Some Catholics, especially the older generation, considered suicide the most dire of all sins. I thinks the times are a changing in that regard. At least now they are buried in consecrated ground. This review is probably going to be all over the place because the story was all over the place, in a totally good way.
Yes, he was sexy, gorgeous, etc. No problem with him in this book. His character and personality was built up very well by the author. Jesus, what a lonely life it is for a priest. Probably telling us that sex was for procreation and nothing more or some sort of shite like that.
Suzanne shook her head. What on earth could a catholic priest know about sex or marriage or romantic relationships of any kind? Sorry, to get back to the plot. She is intrigued. Her brother, Adam, has recently died and she has absolutely no love of the Catholic Church. Does he want the job? Does Nora want him to become Bishop. Do the people of his Parish want him to leave? Suzanne decides he needs to be investigated…. She automatically assumes that the conflict of interest is something to do with Paedophilia — is she correct?
I wonder will Suzanne feature in future stories. There is definitely an attraction between them…. Father S signed. Twists and turns at every corner. Then another. Down the hall she ran as if the hounds of hell nipped at her heels. She ran as if God himself had ordered her to. She ran as if her life depended on it and in that moment she might have sworn that it did.
She only knew she had to get there as fast as she could and whoever it was, he was worth running to. I said to myself when I finished this book that I would not start the next one for a few days. I just find them very intense reading…. Not sure if I can keep my promise.
I am dying to find out what happens next.
