The Siren by Tiffany Reisz


Picture
Author Nora Sutherlin is famous for her erotica novels, each one selling more copies than the last. But her latest work of fiction is different, and she is certain this will be the book that breaks all her other records, if that is, she can get it published.

British editor Zachary Easton holds the fate of Nora's book in his hands. The demanding editor agrees to work with Nora on her book under one very tough condition, he gets complete control over it. And Nora has to deliever a to-his-high-standards revision in only six weeks, or the deal is off.

Revising her most personal book yet is more grueling than Nora can imagine, made more so by the undeniable sexual tension between her and her editor, her complicated feelings for her intern/roomate Wesley, and of course, her need for her former lover Søren.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

The Siren is an intriguing story within a story, as the characters each struggle to overcome their own obstacles. The writing is smooth flowing, and written in such a way that it immediately grabs your attentions, and holds it until the very end.

Keep in mind, The Siren is an erotica novel with a BDSM twist, but the sexual scenes do not detract from the overall plot at all. In fact, they are used to farther explore the characters of the story. From the ex-sub turned Dominatrix turned erotica author Nora, to the stuffy British editor forced to work with her, each character has their own demons, and their own flawed personalities that serve to make them more relateable to the reader.

Speaking of characters, Nora, is presented with a more "human" side than I would have expected given her background. Some of the choices she makes are not something you would think someone with the backbone to be a world famour Domonitrix would be capable of making, which is just another delicious thread in the storyline.

I have already begun reading The Angel (Original Sinners #2) and I look forward to spending more time with the characters that have intrigued me so much.
