Erotic Romance Early Review: The Virgin by Tiffany Reisz

The Virgin by Tiffany Reisz (The Original Sinners: White Years #3)


Egalley thanks to Harlequin MIRA

Synopsis from Goodreads
The controversial story before the story continues in the critically acclaimed and award-winning series The Original Sinners.

For years, Kingsley Edge warned Eleanor the day would come when she, the mistress of a well-respected Catholic priest, would have to run and hide. She always imagined if that day came she'd be running away with Søren. But instead, she's running from him.

Knowing Søren and Kingsley will their use their influence to bring her back, Eleanor alone, penniless and scared takes refuge at the one place the men in her life cannot follow: the abbey where her mother has taken orders. Behind the cloistered gates of the convent, Eleanor hides from the man she loves and hates in equal measure

She cannot, however, hide from her true nature. When Eleanor befriends a young virginal nun, she faces a startling sexual awakening. But Eleanor can't stay forever, and the lure of her real life beckons beyond the locked gates. But to follow her fate means to leave Kyrie behind, a sacrifice Eleanor refuses to make

The lure of the forbidden. The temptation to sin. The price of passion has never been higher, and Eleanor will have to pay it if she ever wants to go home again.

While I always adore reading about Nora's escapades, I admit it was Kingsley who reigned supreme in this book.

The Virgin talks about that year when Eleanor left Søren and spent eight months at her mother's abbey.
It was hard to read this one, folks. You know how much I adore Søren, but even I was forced to admit  that Nora was right to leave him.



And what they both got from that separation was an amazing character growth. Without it there wouldn't be Søren we all know and love, and without it  Nora wouldn't become a writer.

So. While Eleanor is rediscovering herself at the abbey with the help of charming and insightful novice Kyrie, Kingsley angry at Søren for mistreating Elle escapes our dear Father and travels around the world, ending on Haiti, where he meets Juliette.

Aah, Juliette! These two have such a powerful chemistry. They are both lost souls, wise beyond their years, cryptic, insightful and damaged.The air crackles between them. I was glued to my kindle, and while I knew that eventually they would be together, I still ended up biting my nails rooting for their happiness.

What I'm trying to say, I guess, is that with White Years Reisz's writing is coming into its full potential.While it's still intensely erotic, it's not the sex that draws us in, it's the magnetic, larger than life characters, and the intricacies of their relationships with each other. I love it. I loved this. Read it!

Хоть я и обожаю читать об эскападах Элеанор Шрейбер, признаюсь, что в этот раз Кингсли полностью завладел моим вниманием.

"Девственница" рассказывает о событиях того года, когда Элеанор ушла от Сорена и провела 8 месяцев, прячась в аббатстве своей матери.

Читать об их разрыве мне было тяжело, дамы и господа. Насколько уж я люблю Сорена, я полностью поддержала решение Норы. Парадоксально, от её поступка выиграли оба - страдания превратили Сорена в того мужчину, которого мы знаем и так любим, а Нору заставили взять в руки перо и наконец начать писать.

Пока Элль искала саму себя с помощью очаровательной и непростой послушницы Кайри, Кингсли, разъярённый на Сорена, пускается в кругосветное путешествие, которое приводит его на Гаити, где он встречает Джульетту.

Ах, Джульетта!  Эти двое просто созданы друг для друга. Между двумя потерянными душами существует невероятное притяжение. Они рассержены на судьбу, мудры не по годам, загадочны и стоят на перекрёстке, где изменения в их жизни необходимы, иначе смерть. Даже зная, что Кингсли и Джульетта в будущем будут вместе, я не могла оторваться от их истории и очень хотела, чтобы она закончилась хэппи-эндом.

Вообще, по моему мнению, Тиффани Райс выросла значительно как писатель во второй части своей серии - Белыми Годами. Хотя они и остаются исключительно эротичными, к книгам Райс нас притягивает не секс, а невероятные, харизматичные, больше чем жизнь персонажи. Именно их перепитии на пути к счастью, их сложные взаимоотношения заставляют меня как читателя возвращаться к ним снова и снова и надолго остаются в памяти. Читайте, рекомендую.

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
