Review: The Angel by Tiffany Reisz

The Angel by Tiffany Reisz (The Original Sinners #2)

 Egalley thanks to Harlequin MIRA

18+ only

Synopsis from Goodreads
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.

Blew me away, that book. Absolutely blew me away. 

Is it possible to be that smitten? is it possible to love it even more than The Siren? Yes. The Angel is the highest level of mindf*ck imaginable. Don't mistake it for erotica, don't mistake it for a sugary love story, it's a thriller, it's a mystery, it will mess you up, it will make you crave more.

There is something absolutely diabolical about Soren. He tests and pushes your boundaries and makes you question yourself deeply. If Kingsley does it playfully, in a beautiful French accent, Soren is quiet, ruthless, sees far too much and goes straight for the gut.

The Angel is less about Nora and more about his past. This is also about Michael reinventing himself and Griffin and his wonderful butler. Oh, how I loved that butler! He stole limelight with his every appearance...

I don't want to give you spoilers, but there are some shocking revelations about Nora, Soren, Kingsley and even Wesley which help you understand these wonderful characters more deeply, there are gorgeous dialogues and scorching BDSM scenes, all beautifully interwoven with a twisted, layered story. As I said before, - you can not judge this book by your normal standards, and let's not even talk about trying to explain what's so good about it to people unfamiliar with Tiffany's writing *shuddering* If you read it, no explanations will be necessary. Tiffany's books are tantalising, and I am absolutely hooked on them and desperately waiting for more!

Recommended to those who think they'll like it and to those who think they won't.

The Siren - 9.5/10

Охренительная книга, ещё лучше предыдущей от Тиффани Райз! 

Сорен - ну просто маккиавелевский, дьявольский персонаж, и я от него в полнейшем восторге. Если Кингсли очаровывает своим французским шармом, Сорен смотрит прямо тебе в душу и задаёт вопросы, которые заставляют тебя изменить своё отношение и взгляды на мир.

Майкл хрупок, Гриффин бесшабашен и искренен, Нора остаётся Норой... Хотя её возвращение к Сорену поменяло её поведение, - вместо необузданной дикости, она показывает сдержанность и готовность пригрозить тем, кто пытается уничтожить тех, кого она любит. 

Но именно Сорен выворачивает душу своим прошлым и своим отношением к Елеонор. Множество превосходных диалогов, тщательно выписанные герои и постоянные шокирующие откровения от Сорена, Кингсли, Норы и даже Уэсли.

Рекомендую всем, - и тем, кому понравилась Сирена, и тем, кто считает, что эти книги никогда и ни за что не прочитает. А вы попробуйте...

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
