“No safe word can protect the heart”
I have sat here for ages staring at a blank screen trying to figure how to start this review and keep coming up with nothing. So I’m just going to wing it and hope that it doesn’t come out as screwed up as this book left my head (in a good-ish way.) 😉
Firstly, I should probably start with saying that this has MMF and MM sexual scenes.
Like The Siren, this book is raw, dark and deliciously kinky, that doesn’t end with an HEA for everyone. It is a little lighter than THE SIREN, with more sexual and kink scenes, but still is a very intense book.
That being said, let’s get to it.
OK, so this one takes place not long after The Siren and we have more Griffin ::fans face::
So, at the end of The Siren Nora went back to where she belongs, with Søren. 12 months has passed, and while things have been blissful for the two, in secret of course because of his position as the Priest, Now they have a problem. There is a threat, a reporter who has had an anonymous tip off about our dear Priest, that he is abusing his position, and she is set on uncovering anything and everything on Father Stearns. Especially anything that involves Michael.
Michael, the Angel, who has had a tough life growing up, with trying to understand who he is, a submissive, and bisexual at that. He dealt with abuse from his father. After a suicide attempt, where his Priest, our beloved Sadist, helps him pull himself together. He is sent to the country with Nora when a nosy report starts snooping around. Nora is to train Michael as a submissive, what a lucky boy. And even luckier when he sets his eyes on the drop dead gorgeous, Kilt wearing Griffin.
“Coming down the main spiral staircase taking two steps at a time and wearing nothing but a black kilt and Doc Marten boots was the lunatic laird of the manor himself.
Six feet tall, bronzed skin and with the broad chest and shoulders of a heavyweight boxer, there wasn’t much in the world more fun to stare at than Griffin Fiske. He had elaborate armband tattoos around both biceps, dark hair that spiked up just too perfectly, and the dirtiest smile she’d ever seen on anyone besides her.”
It was instant lust when Michael and Griffin’s eyes meet, but with the promise of Griffin’s membership to the 8th circle revoked and Nora ripped from his life for good if he has sex with Michael, it makes for an interesting and creative time for these two.
But with the connection growing day by day, will Griffin stand up to Søren for his chance at love with Michael?
Now, because Tiffany just can’t stop at incredible, she has to take an extra step, She has thrown in more twists.
Someone has broken into Kingsley’s, the King of Kinks home and stolen one of his personal files on none other than, Nora. We get some insight into Kingsley’s past and shows how he and Søren became the men they are today.
“You told me about him. Good men don’t hit women.”
“Good men only hit the women who want to be hit.”
The SM scenes … FUCKING HOT!!!
There seriously is no words I can use to explain how well Tiffany writes these scenes or any scene for that matter. For those who are actively in the BDSM lifestyle, you would have read books that didn’t quite match up with how things really are, Tiffany’s books are not one of those, everything is believable, everything adds up.
Now the blood play, I would say was unexpected, but with Tiffany Reisz, I have learned to expect the unexpected and be prepaid for things I think are impossible, because that woman, will make it possible.
Oh, and Whats happening with Wes? Well, Nora is avoiding the country boy, while I have a soft spot for him, my heart is with the Priest, but what will Nora do?
I have a feeling that there is a lot of twists and turns ahead for everyone. Just when you think you know what Tiffany is getting at, she flips the switch and turns your world upside down again.
“Fetishes…they’re the pet you feed or the beast that eats you.”
We’ll feed your beast until it’s tamed.”
I laughed, winced, cried and got damn frustrated as hell, in good and bad ways, but then again, what can you expect from an author like Tiffany Reisz.
This woman is in a league of her own.
Up next, The Prince, well after I get my bearings back from this one 😉
