Review: Picture Perfect Cowboy by Tiffany Reisz

A sweet and sexy cowboy who likes to give a little pain with his pleasure? Yes, please!!

I love Jason. He was raised, by his super conservative family, to be a “proper gentleman”. But the downside of that is that he can’t be true to himself. And when he’s filling in for a friend, for a naked photo shoot, he meets the sexiest, and cutest pink haired girl that turns his world upside down. She shows him that what happens between two consenting adults is nothing to be ashamed about and that there is nothing wrong with him.

Simone is a pro sub who never imagined a photo would change her life. But who can deny a sexy cowboy? Definitely not her.

It was fun watching this cowboy fall over for this cute girl. It was hot as he learned how to be more physical with a girl who wants and needs it. I could watch him all day long.

“It is weak to let someone else tell you how to live your life when you know better.”

It was nice to see Søren and Nora make an appearance also. I about swooned when S called Simone “Jellybean”. I mean how sweet is that‽‽ plus we get a bonus chapter with Jason getting flogger lessons from them. They are the best after all.

I will say that I hope a certain friend gets a story soon. I feel like there’s more there and he needs to find someone also. *crossing fingers*

Tiffany Reisz is the master, or I should say mistress, of the sweet and saucy erotica. Whenever I see a new book has released I know that it will be original and keep me begging for more.

Review: The Night Mark by Tiffany Reisz

01ab1 ~Everyone deserves light~

This book…

If you read Tiffany’s The Bourbon Thief, then you’ll recognize a few names and places in this one, but it’s not connected. This story is in a whole other world. The Night Mark has a bit of an Diana Gabaldon feel with a Tiffany twist. Twist is definitely what this does to my heart and soul.

Because the synopsis doesn’t say too much, I won’t say much either. What I will say is that Tiffany Reisz has jumped up another notch in my eyes. This story was pure magic. She creates a world like no other.

I realize time travel isn’t possible, but what if it was? If you were hurting so much would you make the choice to leave this world behind? I was so brokenhearted hearing about Faye’s suffering. There’s been one thing after another with her. I’m surprised she’s still standing. When she discovers a way to be happy, but it’s not in this life, she’s willing to do anything in order to find it and keep it.

This book is about love. This book is about pain. This book is about letting the light in and praying that it heals the soul. If you’re in the mood for an epic romance that will have you twisting in your seat as you read, then I think this book will make you happy. Go in with an open mind and an open heart. And don’t read any spoilers. 🙂 In fact, I think this book will be in my Top 10 of 2017. It was that magical and beautiful.

Review: The Bourbon Thief by Tiffany Reisz

01-ab “Love what they destroyed.
Destroy what they loved.”

This story is nothing like I’ve read from Ms. Reisz before. NOTHING. In fact, this story has to be one the most insane stories I have ever read. I went in knowing nothing. No spoilers or anything, just a vague idea that it’s about thievery and bourbon. That’s it. But when I finished I sat back and wish I took Dramamine for all the twists and turns this book had. A truly wild ride.

SYNOPSIS
When Cooper McQueen wakes up from a night with a beautiful stranger, it’s to discover he’s been robbed. The only item stolen—a million-dollar bottle of bourbon. The thief, a mysterious woman named Paris, claims the bottle is rightfully hers. After all, the label itself says it’s property of the Maddox family who owned and operated Red Thread Bourbon distillery since the last days of the Civil War until the company went out of business for reasons no one knows… No one except Paris.

In the small hours of a Louisville morning, Paris unspools the lurid tale of Tamara Maddox, heiress to the distillery that became an empire. But the family tree is rooted in tainted soil and has borne rotten fruit. Theirs is a legacy of wealth and power, but also of lies, secrets and sins of omission. The Maddoxes have bourbon in their blood—and blood in their bourbon. Why Paris wants the bottle of Red Thread remains a secret until the truth of her identity is at last revealed, and the century-old vengeance Tamara vowed against her family can finally be completed.

You must go into this story blind to truly appreciate the way the story unwinds itself on the pages. Deception, lies and revenge are the main themes of this tale. And one seriously messed up family. I won’t reveal spoilers, but I will say that you’ll never see the end coming. While some parts in this story will make you squirm, if you just take a deep breath, you’ll be fine.

To be honest, I held off reading this because I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this more, or even as much, as her Original Sinners series. That series is bananas. But I am so glad I took a chance. Tiffany has a writing style that is so addicting, you can’t help but be sucked in. You won’t be disappointed in anything you read from her.

Review: The King, by Tiffany Reisz

01king “…a king must have a kingdom.”

WOW! Let me say, that whatever expectations I had for this book, were completely blown out the the water. This was so much more than anything I could’ve imagined. There are so many layers to Kingsley, you have no idea.

Synopsis
Cunning. Sex. Pure nerve. Only this unholy threesome can raise him to his rightful place as a rule of Manhattan’s king kingdom.

Bouncing from bed to bed on the Upper East Side, Kingsley Edge is brilliant, beautiful and utterly debauched. No carnal act of chemical compound can relieve his self-destructive heartache—only Søren, the one person he loves without limit or regret. A man he can never have, but in whose hands Kingsley is reborn to attain even greater heights of sin.

Kingsley’s plan to open the ultimate BDSM club—a dungeon playground for New York’s A-list—becomes his obsession. His expertise in domination can’t subdue the one man who wants to stop him. The enigmatic Reverend Fuller won’t rest until King’s dream is destroyed, and so the battle lines are set; it’s one man’s sacred mission against another’s…

Since I loved The Red Years, I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to get into the White Years. Without the Mistress it would appear boring. HAHA!!! Boy was I wrong!! There is still the same amount of saucy parts as well as the loving parts. This one also has a nice dose of heartbreak and loss.

This story is about a king and how be builds his kingdom. It is about love that withstands the test of time. It’s about a young man who will to anything for his family, even if they’re not blood related. This story is about how be built his BDSM club, just so Søren could be himself. King has always loved Søren and he would do anything for him.

After stumbling around for years, with no real plan for his life, Søren comes back into his life, and suddenly he knows what to do now. With the help of his new assistant, Sam, he sets forth to create his kingdom.

I loved Sam. It was almost like she put on this planet to help King. Everything she did, was for him. She was funny and quirky. She was sexy and sweet and knew how to keep King in his place. No matter what was happening, she was there for him, willing to do anything to make his dreams happen. They bonded over their horrible pasts and moved on together. I’m glad she was able to keep him going and not fall for him, like so many others seem to do.

As we catch glimpses of King’s past, my heart broke. No man should go through what he did. I was so glad Søren was there for him, during the scary times. He loves King, even if he won’t tell him. You can see it.

“I did my part by coming back to you,” he said. “God did his part to keep you alive long enough for me to get here. Now you do your part and make yourself worthy of this second chance you’ve been given.”

I’m glad we got to see Grace and Fionn. I totally forgot about them!! Sad, I know. But I hope they’ll be in future books. I hope Søren will go to them also. That would be fantastic.

The Saint: The Original Sinners Book 5

Review: The Saint, by Tiffany Reisz

01saint I love The Original Sinners series. I really do. At first I wasn’t sure how I felt about them, but they totally grew on me. And after the first four books, I was totally satisfied with how it ended. As if you don’t know, I love saucy books. So when Tiffany said that she was going to write about Nora’s time, before she was a Domme, I wasn’t all that interested. I’ll admit, I was worried there would be no sauce, or maybe just light sauce. Silly me. This is Tiffany Reisz we’re talking about!! I don’t think she could write a light sauce book, if her life depended on it.

Synopsis
In the beginning, there was him.

Gutsy, 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 Søren Stearns and his lust-worthy Italian motorcycle is an epiphany. Suddenly, daily Mass seems like a reward, and her punishment is the ache she feels when they’re apart. He is intelligent and insightful and he seems to know her intimately at her very core. Eleanor is consumed—and even she knows that can’t be right.

But when one desperate mistake nearly costs Eleanor everything, it is Søren who steps in to save her. She vows to repay him with complete obedience…and a whole world opens before her as he reveals to her his deepest secrets.

Danger can be managed—pain, welcomed. Everything is about to begin.

Now if you read the first four books, you’ll know some of what happens in this book already. But there is sooo much we never knew.

Let me start out by saying that Tiffany is a genius. This book showed us why Nora needed Søren so much and why she immediately was drawn to him. In all honesty, she broke my heart. Her feelings of not being wanted, made me so very sad. I think part of me needed to read this book. I could never wrap my head around how they could together, with such a large age difference, or even how they connected when she was a teenager. Part of me thought that was just weird. But after this, I realized, it was just right.

“Have you ever had a dream feel so real that upon waking you thought you were still asleep? He took her hand in his.

“Once or twice.”

“I felt like that the moment I saw you, Little One. I dreamed you once. I think I’m still dreaming.”

While this book gave a lot of insight, it packed a lot of emotion as well. I was on the verge of tears the entire book. But I didn’t understand why. There was one part of the story that she kept coming back to and just made it worse. By the end of the book I was a wreck. I don’t remember crying in her other books as much as I did in this one. She kept us on the edge of our seats the whole time.

And now, of course, I’m am dying for the next one. There are quite a few more stories that Nora needs to share with us.

Review: The Mistress by Tiffany Reisz

ImageSneak Peek – Release date July 30, 2013

The Mistress is the fourth book in The Original Sinner’s Series by Reisz.  If you are faint of heart, I can only warn you, don’t dare read them.  These books have just about every sexual scenario you can imagine in a D/s relationship, plus a few you n.e.v.e.r dared imagine…I wasn’t too sure about this one…since I have read the other titles in the series, I was pretty sure I knew what to expect….however, I was wrong!  It didn’t start out slow per say, but it was so different from the other books in the series. I enjoyed it from the start, but I was almost disappointed in everything that was (and WASN’T) happening…

Once I reached the point where I just figured Reisz had decided to take this book in a safer, more vanilla relationship, the floodgates opened…..I reckon Ms Reisz has a bit of a sadist in her as well as her characters! She seriously made us all wait a very long time with a bit of foreplay to get to where we all expected to be in one of her Sinner’s novels! As we gave up hope of this happening, she showed me that she hadn’t really showed anything in her previous novels!  This was a long wait Sinner behavior to occur, but it was by far some of the best Sinner behavior EVER!!!!  I have to say that it was soooooo worth it!

For me, nothing will ever compete to take the place of “The Siren”…it was such an amazing read….however, this one is no doubt my second favorite in the series. I loved hearing more of the background history of the characters and I seriously loved every single word I read about/from Søren…after reading all of the other novels in the series I didn’t think it was possible for me to like him more…..having read this one I now know it was possible for me to LOVE him more….The ending leaves no doubt that this story will continue…but it does leave much doubt as to HOW it will continue….oh my…..Ms Reisz, I am, as always, your adoring fan…..

Review: The Siren (The Original Sinners #1) by Tiffany Reisz

the siren

Where does one start to review a book such as this….I guess we just have to get the down and dirty out of the way…..yes, it has strong D/s players in it. Yes, there is what some would label violence in it. But in all honesty, there is less actual sex in this book then almost any historical or contemporary romance novel I have read. Yes, the sex is there…yes the violence (in some eyes) is all there…but is it left for the most part to the reader’s imagination.

Now that we have that out of the way, I already feel better….don’t you? bwahahahaha….seriously, this is what people want to imagine they read when they gushed over “Fifty Shade of Grey” (I seriously hate to even mention that book when discussing this one)….again, I won’t even to attempt to review what I don’t fully understand….the D/s relationship….except to say that Reisz seems to understand it much better. A sub needs to be a very strong-willed person…..They are not some timid little mouse that doesn’t know who they are and are easily bent to will……

okay….so see, I told you….I don’t even know where to start a review here…I only know I loved this book. One has to take into consideration face value vs reality here.

Face value….you have a young lady who is so much in control that she is TOTALLY out of control……Face value…..you have a young man who is so innocent that he appears fragile….even to those that know him best…..Face value….you have an older man who is so dominate that he is terrifying…..

Reality….you have a young lady that is so adrift in the world, she is fighting to hang on to anything…she is struggling to maintain control of a world she feels she can’t control…..Reality…..you have a young man who is so strong that he stays his course, no matter the temptations of his own desires….Reality….you have a guy that is so willing to give anything to the woman that he loves that he is willing to sacrifice all that he is….

So what does a woman such as Nora/Eleanor do? Does she cling to the person she KNOWS herself to be? Or does she become the person she WANTS to be? What happens if the two don’t coincide? How does one face these choices knowing that no matter what, someone she loves will be crushed in the end, perhaps even herself? How much of their wants/desires/needs/hurts should effect how she lives her life?

Finally, some quotes….what is a book without quotes that move you anyway????

“The world had fallen away in his presence and now that he was gone, she was left in the equally potent presence of his absence”

“What a beautiful wreck of a man”

“S&M is as psychological as it is physical and sexual, Zach. Imagine being as deep inside a woman’s mind as you are inside her body.”

“When Søren touched her she became his. When Wesley touched her, she became herself.”

“Nora…the siren and the goddess, the ship and the wine-dark sea. She would either save him or end him”
