Review: The Angel by Tiffany Reisz
Rating: 5 Stars!
This book left with my mouth gaping. Now to call upon the one person to fill that hole *gasp*. She what Ms. Reisz does to me with her words. Suddenly I'm a randy, insane female willing to publish naughty words on my blog. Her first book, The Siren, was merely a stretching exercise and lesson in proper breathing techniques. Every word penned before only sought to sink you further into oblivion. The Angel is the flogger, the testing phase to see how much you can take. Let me go on the record in saying: "I can handle more."
We've got several main players: Nora, Griffin, Michael, and Soren. There's some Kingsley and a bit of Wesley in there too. Couple that with enough sexual high jinks and kinks, and I was on fire! Could not put this down. We follow Nora to the New York countryside. She's hiding out to help Soren deflect a nosy reporter and some nasty rumors. In addition to hiding she's training a new sub and getting plenty of action from Griffin to keep her mind occupied. Only when is Nora ever satisfied with just 1 man? The would be a n-to-the-e-v-e-r!
My favorite part of the story-- well, all of it!
My favorite line: "Have you ever had sex in the back of a Rolls Royce?"
This is BDSM Erotica at it's finest. A mix of pleasure, pain, and characters that continual keep you guessing. Reisz does a marvelous job with dialogue. It bites, cuts, and just when you think someone will say something they shut their mouths. The sprinkle of back story throughout the pages, until your screaming for more, is another talent Reisz possesses. My praise could go on for hours. No sagging middle, no boredom, no skipping paragraphs due to over description. Eyes wide and glued to each syllable is a pre-requisite.
The bottom line (remember she left a ton of marks) this book is not for the faint of heart. If you enjoyed The Siren, The Angel will secure your ticket on the train to sinners paradise. For BDSM fans this is a book you should purchase immediately, and I mean a hardback copy. You'll want to show this off on the bookshelf. If this is your first foray into the world of BDSM Erotica I suggest you proceed with caution or start with Reisz's earlier works to break yourself in.
