The Siren by Tiffany Reisz

The Siren (The Original Sinners, #1)The Siren by Tiffany Reisz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different—more serious, more personal—and she's sure it'll be her breakout book...if it ever sees the light of day.

Zachary Easton holds Nora's fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards—in six weeks—or it's no deal.

Nora's grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining…and shockingly arousing. And a dangerous former lover has her wondering which is more torturous—staying away from him...or returning to his bed?

Nora thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in a world where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple.

"Tiffany Reisz is a smart, artful, and masterful new voice in erotic fiction! An erotica star on the rise!"
Award-winning author Lacey Alexander

“Tiffany Reisz's The Original Sinners series is painful, prideful, brilliant, beautiful, hopeful, and heart-breaking. And that's just the first hundred pages.”
Courtney Milan, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Duchess War

“A beautiful, lyrical story... The Siren is about love lost and found, the choices that make us who we are...and above all, finding our way home. I can only hope that Ms. Reisz pens a sequel!"
Bestselling author Jo Davis

"Dazzling, devastating and sinfully erotic, Reisz writes unforgettable characters you'll either want to know or want to be. The Siren is an alluring book-within-a-book, a story that will leave you breathless and bruised, aching for another chapter with Nora Sutherlin and her men."
Miranda Baker, author of Bottoms Up and Soloplay

The Original Sinners series certainly lives up to its name: it's mindbendingly original and crammed with more sin than you can shake a hot poker at. I haven't read a book this dangerous and subversive since Chuck Palahniuk's Fight Club. The most shocking thing, however, is how much you'll feel for the characters. If your heart doesn't break at least ten times over the course of The Siren, check yourself into a morgue."
Andrew Shaffer, author, Great Philosophers Who Failed at Love

Juls Review

this book was confusing yet made perfect sense, like clear as mud ;P
It all revolves around Nora who is an author by day and a Dominatrix by night.

I loved Nora's character. She is witty and smart and can stand with the best of them. Her breakup with Soren takes her back into the world she is familiar with but is now in the leading role.
Zach is a stuck up and staid editor who has a moment of weakness but soon finds his path has been opened up to be happy with his wife.
Wesley oh sweet Wesley. What can I say about him except he is such a sweet boy. His perception of love is a bit skewed while living with the infamous writer/dom. The affection they feel affection for each other is a bit unorthodox but they somehow make it work.
Soren what is up with him??????? I want to know but am afraid to :/

Looking forward to the rest of the books in the Original Sinners series.

Great read and highly recommend!
