Review ~ The Angel by Tiffany Reisz

The Angel

(Original Sinners #2)

By Tiffany Reisz

5 out of 5 STARS

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.

Yowsa.  This was a fanfreakingtastic follow up to The Siren.  The Angel definitely did not suffer from any sequel syndrome and for that I am very happy.

The Angel picks up about a year from where The Siren ended.  Nora has gone back to Søren and tried to move on from any lingering vanilla fantasies she may have. She's still writing with the help of her editor though that is secondary.  A journalist is snooping about so Nora takes a summer break to Griffin's house with an accompanied guest to keep the nosy questions at bay.

What a summer.  So much happens.  SO MUCH!  The characters continue to grow right before my very eyes making this quite an emotional ride.

Nora did not want to leave but is given a task, albeit a pleasurable one, while she is away.  But it's not that simple, no.  She's still mourns the loss of a friend and also worries about the privacy of her loved one.

Griffin is drawn to the new guest.  He's dominant and unapologetically open.  This trust fund baby has a different side then we first catch a glimpse of in The Siren.

Michael.  Beautiful, quiet, submissive Michael.  I was really pleased with the secondary character developments in this story.  Sure, I love to hear about Nora and Søren but the other story being told is just as beautiful and emotionally charged as the primary.

I really don't know what to say about this book.  I had feelings of doubt where the journalist was involved but it was great to find out so much more about the enigmatic man of the cloth, Søren.  As we learn some of his deep dark secrets,  we get a closer look at this compassionate, intelligent, yet dominant man and what makes him tick.

This was an amazing book and I can't wait for The Prince, due out this November, to see what happens next in the crazy life of Nora Sutherlin.

This book contains extremely erotic situations:  BDSM, M/M, M/F/M.  This one gets a "wet panty" alert from me. ;)

Favorite quotes:

"How are you, little one?" came Søren's voice over the line.
"Lonely for a certain six-foot-four blonde Scandinavian guy I know."
"Anyone I know?"
"Alexander Skasgard."

"Oh...  see.  Also, now I'm wondering if they make butt plugs with built-in thermometers.  You know, for when you might have a slight fever, and the urge for anal penetration."
"Your mind is both fascinating and repulsive," Zach said.
