REVIEW by Heather: The Angel (The Original Sinners #2) by Tiffany Reisz (@tiffanyreisz , @_Shoe_Girl_ )
No safe word can protect the heart
Infamous erotica author and accomplished dominatrix Nora Sutherlin is doing something utterly out of character: hiding. While her longtime lover, Søren—whose fetishes, if exposed, would be his ruin—is under scrutiny pending a major promotion, Nora’s lying low and away from temptation in the lap of luxury.
Her host, the wealthy and uninhibited Griffin Fiske, is thrilled to have Nora stay at his country estate, especially once he meets her traveling companion. Young, inexperienced and angelically beautiful, Michael has become Nora’s protégé, and this summer with Griffin is going to be his training, where the hazing never ends.
But while her flesh is willing, Nora’s mind is wandering. To thoughts of Søren, her master, under investigation by a journalist with an ax to grind. And to another man from Nora’s past, whose hold on her is less bruising, but whose secrets are no less painful. It’s a summer that will prove the old adage: love hurts.
Okay, WOW. I thought The Siren was good! Well, it WAS, but The Angel was even better. Tiffany Reisz has become my new fav author. I almost feel bad for other erotica writers, for having to live up to her books. The writing is insanely captivating, as is the story. You literally feel like you are among the characters, which can be good and bad at times (ummm, the black sheets….yeah, I’m glad that it was in the fictional world!).
Søren is under investigation after someone tipped off a reporter that he may have “conflict of interest”. Not wanting to involve Nora and/or Michael, Søren sends them both off to stay with Griffin for a couple months. They’ll be away from the church, away from the public at Griffin’s place. While Nora is having fun with Griffin, and training Michael, she learns that the reporter may just be getting a little too close to Søren. She also learns something about Wesley…..
Tiffany takes us on a wild, sexy, yet dark journey. We get Søren’s history, which gives explanation for why he chose the lifestyle that he did. We also get deeper looks into Nora, Michael, and Griffin. Each and every character is wonderfully complex. I truly can’t wait for book 3.
