Review: The Siren by Tiffany Reisz

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

bought

18+ only

Synopsis from Goodreads
Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different—more serious, more personal—and she's sure it'll be her breakout book...if it ever sees the light of day.

Zachary Easton holds Nora's fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards—in six weeks—or it's no deal.

Nora's grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining…and shockingly arousing. And a dangerous former lover has her wondering which is more torturous—staying away from him...or returning to his bed?

Nora thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in a world where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple.

 The Siren is the book Fifty Shades haven't had the guts to be. Mind-blowing, shocking, amazing, raw and gritty.


You can guess that I loved it to bits, and can't wait to read The Angel, which is the next in series.

The Siren follows life of Nora, an erotica writer who started writing to get through a devastating break up of a long-term relationship with her dom. She herself works as a dominatrix, and she is really really good at what she does.

When she decides to become a serious published author, the publishing house assigns their best editor to her. Zach doesn't want to deal with her, is not interested in erotica and only a few weeks away from transferring to a new editorial position in California. So he gives her an ultimatum where she only has 6 weeks to rewrite her book up to his standards otherwise her contract is bust.

Both Zach and Nora are truly tortured characters. He is suffering from separation with his wife and doesn't know where he went wrong in their relationship. But the book has so many more characters and story lines. There is breathtakingly beautiful and scary Jesuit Soren; Nora's charming assistant, young Wesley; and many more unorthodox lives in between.

The Siren is NOT for EVERYONE. That I can guarantee. However, if you get into it with your eyes wide open and without prejudice, it's dark, heart-wrenching, addictive and really beautiful. It's so far from your comfort zones, I wouldn't even go there if I were you, and I am hungry for more of Tiffany's exquisite writing.

Невероятная книга, мой мозг взорвался. Сирена - это история, на которую у 50 Оттенков Грея не хватило смелости. Она как наркотик, шокирующа, завораживающая и пронзительная.

Сирена - это книга не для всех, что и следует ожидать от темы садо-мазохизма со времён Марказа де Сада и Истории О.  Однако, если эту книгу читать без предубеждений, то это красивая и мучительная история любви. Неортодоксальной, но всё же любви.

Здесь очень много различных линий повествования - от лица Норы, писателя эротики и Мистресс-Доминатрикс, которая много лет жила и дышала своей любовью к иезуиту Сорену, пока он не предложил оставить свой сан для неё, и она порвала свою связь с ним. Чтобы выжить, она начала писать.

От лица Зака - британского редактора книги Норы, который ставит ей ультиматум - переписать книгу по его стандартам за 6 недель иначе она потеряет издательский контракт. Сам Зак страдает, так как от него ушла жена, и он никак не может понять, что он сделал не так, чтобы она попросила развод.

От лица Уэсли - молодого ассистента Норы, который её отчаянно любит, но не может понять и принять нё образ жизни. 

Наконец, от лица Сорена, который сам себе закон, и категоризовать его невозможно.

Книга горькая, мощная, и оторваться от неё невозможно. Я жуть как хочу прочитать продолжение.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
