In the beginning, there was him.
Gutsy, green-eyed Eleanor never met a rule she didn't want to break. She's sick of her mother's zealotry and the confines of Catholic school, and declares she'll never go to church again. But her first glimpse of beautiful, magnetic Father Søren Stearns and his lust-worthy Italian motorcycle is an epiphany. Suddenly, daily Mass seems like a reward, and her punishment is the ache she feels when they're apart. He is intelligent and insightful and he seems to know her intimately at her very core. Eleanor is consumed—and even she knows that can't be right.
But when one desperate mistake nearly costs Eleanor everything, it is Søren who steps in to save her. She vows to repay him with complete obedience…and a whole world opens before her as he reveals to her his deepest secrets.
Danger can be managed—pain, welcomed. Everything is about to begin.

REVIEW (may contain spoilers):
*A word of warning: The Saint should not be read until you've read the other Original Sinners books. And if you haven't read them yet, well I just don't think we can be friends. Get on it!*
"The story starts with a stick in the ground and ends with an orgy."
Oh, Nora. Always a story teller. And this was one story I've been wanting since I've started reading Tiffany's books. How did Eleanor and Søren come to be? A relationship between a priest and a fifteen year old sounds so scandalous, and in part it is, but seeing them together, and the love they have for each other, makes it a wonderful start to a great love affair.
What I loved is that while we are visiting old friends, The Saint holds a lot of firsts. It's seeing Søren for the first time through Eleanor's eye. It's the first time she meets Kingsley. Her first time sexually and her first foray into Soren's world.
Of course, Kingsley steals the show with his ridiculous Frenchness and all together hotness. And his one-liners. He says some pretty shocking, ridiculously inappropriate things. And I love him for it. I think Eleanor says what we all are thinking: "I want to be his best friend."
There is something special about Tiffany Reisz's writing and I love reading her stories. It's like you can feel the heart and soul of her characters as real people. I laugh, I cry, and get turned on while getting lost in her world. She manages to draw out my emotions and make me care about these fictional people who I wish were real. The Saint had me tearing up with in the first chapter. By the second chapter I asked if I was going to like her when I finished. I think The Saint is her best book to date.
