Print Length: 70 pages

From It's July, a couple months after Nora returns to Søren at the end of THE SIREN, and while in bed, Søren makes a trade with Nora. He'll do something nice for her and she'll do something nice for him. Of course, Nora picks something sexual. But Søren surprises her with his "something nice" request.

My Rating: 4 stars out of 5

WARNING: Due to sexual content, this story is for mature (18 and over) audiences only. 

This is a wonderful "companion" novella to The Original Sinners series and I'm sure fans of the series will enjoy this novella just as much (if not more) than I did. It is always fun to go back to visit Nora and Søren, but this novel showed a side to them that we don't get to see often. The masks they put on in public when he is her priest and there can be no hint of the relationship they share. This author does a wonderful job of making her characters extremely realistic and relatable, even if you're not into the BDSM lifestyle, you can still relate to Nora in this story as she is going through the heartbreak of losing someone she loved, and struggling to fit into the world she once belonged in.

Speaking of Nora, it was nice to see the way she interacted with everyone - from the little old lady who hosted the picnic, to the teenaged members of the Kingsley Edge Fanclub, this short story was packed full of the witty (and occasionally sarcastic) comments that make Nora who she is. 

Obviously, I would recommend this story (especially to first-time readers of this author so that they can get a very basic feel for her amazing writing style - although they may be a little confused about the dynamic that is my favorite unholy trinity. I will read more from this author (and am in fact eagerly awaiting the next book in this series due out in April 2020).
