Jamie + Kati Double Team Erotica Review: The Angel by Tiffany Reisz

THE ANGEL by Tiffany Reisz
Series: The Original Sinners #2
Format: ARC
Genre: Erotica
Length: 416 pages
Publisher: Harlequin MIRA (September 25, 2012)

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.

REVIEW:

Jamie's Review:
Tiffany Reisz has broken me yet again. Sometimes I find myself disappointed when reading the sequel of a book, especially when the first book is beyond amazing. However, this is not the case with The Angel. Somehow Tiffany Reisz was able to push it to the next level. If possible, I think it’s better than The Siren and that was my favorite book of the year.

The Angel is book 2 in The Original Sinners series and if you haven’t read The Siren yet then you are missing out. I always have a hard time writing reviews of Tiffany’s books because her writing blows me away. Trying to put into words how I feel about is almost impossible. The Angel will push your boundaries. It’s dark and edgy and makes you think. Yet, there is part of it that is light and will make you laugh. It will also make you cry.

My favorite thing about The Angel is it takes a deeper look into the lives of our favorite characters. We get to learn more about Michael and get a look into his home life. We see Griffin not just as a spoiled, rich, kinky playboy but also as a guy who stands up for those he cares about. Kingsley makes a memorable appearance with his favorite car. And my favorite, Søren. We really get to know Søren and a bit of his past with his family, with Kingsley and of course, Nora. And for all you Søren haters, I dare you not to soften up to him. I loved him before and now I love him even more… though he still scares me.

Thinking of a way to describe my favorite guys or my favorite moment with them is hard so I figured I would do a little words game. When I think of the character I came up with one word. And here we go:
  • Søren. Ducati.
  • Kingsley. Rolls.
  • Griffin. Kilt.
  • Michael. Wings.

If you want to read Angel I STRONGLY recommend reading The Siren first.

Kati's Review:
Where do I even begin with this review for The Angel? Damn you, Tiffany Reisz! *shaking fist but not in a sexual kind of way*

After reading The Angel I went into a three week reading funk. That's how amazing it is. I picked up one book and half heartedly read the first fifty pages. Picked up another and couldn't even get past the first chapter. The Angel had broken me. I know that I should have realized reading anything by Tiffany Reisz, a book or short story, can leave a euphoric feeling in my heart but then ruin the next few reads I pick up. So apologies to all authors whose books I read after a Tiffany Reisz book.

The Angel brings us deeper into the world of our favorite Sinners especially Søren, Griffin and Michael. Nora and Søren get back together for a little while until a snoopy reporter sends Nora packing for Griffin's farm while Søren deals with the reporter the Søren way with a side of Kingsley. Nora brings Michael with her to Griffin's and it becomes an epic summer full of hot, totally consensual sex in any position, in every room.

There's so much going on in Angel. Fisting. Edge play. A threesome. Sex in a Rolls. Sex on an Aston Martin while discovering a Ducati midthrust. A priest and a notorious erotica writer. A reporter and a super sexy Frenchman. An angel and a griffin. A kilt and Doc Martens. A snarky butler. A certain Swedish vampire. Coded files. Flogging. Bareback. Murder. Incest. Secrets. Love. If that doesn't intrigue you into reading The Angel, I don't know what will.

The Angel will push your boundaries further than The Siren (read this first). It will shock, scandalize and rope you in to the point of turning the pages faster and faster. Revelations about Søren's childhood will leave your heart aching and haunt your dreams for weeks. This book should come with a safeword. Seriously.

Tiffany Reisz has done it again. I thought Siren was my favorite book of the year but Angel just topped it. Is The Prince here yet?

There are so many quotes from the book that I want to share but I'll leave the rest for you to discover. Here's just a few that I have stickies next to:

Søren:
No one watching him now would ever believe Søren was forty-seven years old. And none seeing them last night and this morning as he beat her and fucked her repeatedly in a variety of delightfully degrading positions would have dreamed he was one of the most respected Catholic priests in all of New England.
Kingsley:
Kingsley Edge, the King of Kink in New York City. Half-French, all pervert. Her occasional lover and Søren's best friend. Well, best friend on those occasions Søren wasn't threatening to kill him.
Griffin:
And coming down the main spiral staircase taking two steps at a time and wearing nothing but a black kilt and Doc Marten boots was the lunatic laird of the manor himself.
Michael:
Of course, most guys his age didn't have hair that fell to their shoulders and predilection for self-abuse in the literal sense. Scalding water wasn't quite as much fun as scalding candle wax, but it was the best he had.
