Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different—more serious, more personal—and she's sure it'll be her breakout book...if it ever sees the light of day.

Zachary Easton holds Nora's fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards—in six weeks—or it's no deal.

Nora's grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining…and shockingly arousing. And a dangerous former lover has her wondering which is more torturous—staying away from him...or returning to his bed?

Nora thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in a world where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple.

My Thoughts

I’ve never read any of Tifany Reisz books, I’ve seen all the buzz around Twitter and fellow blogs about her books and I wanted to know what’s with all the excitement? Why is everyone clamoring to read her stories. Well now I know why, I finished The Siren and it has got to be the most emotionally, sexually charged story I’ve read in a good while.

I was so inexplicably drawn to every character in this book and I do MEAN EVERY character. From Nora to Kingley’s Haitian secretary, they all held my rapt attention. I’ve know most have probably seen stellar reviews and glowing accolades and I’m here to add to them.

Tiffany Reisz has written a series that will sorely drown me in angst and fascination. I can’t help but want all of her characters to be happy.

Nora Sutherland…Eleanor….Mistress. A take charge strong female character. Takes no shit and keeps on going in her black knee high boots. Girl crush cannot describe it, hell…I think I’m in love with this fictional woman. She rocked my world..litterally.

Wesley…Oh sweet, sexy 19 yr old virgin Wesley. Lord…so much temptation for Nora and whoa, she loves him too. My heart broke for Wesley every time his heart broke for Nora. It was gut wrenching I tell you..gut wrenching.

Zachery..I’ll say I didn’t care for him in the start of this story, but I grew to love him as well. When he called Nora a guttersnipe, when he kept hurting her feelings with his stupidity…I wanted to reach through my book in rip his heart out. Zach became likeable…loveable even. But I hated his butt at the end, and then I was also happy for him too.

Soren..all I can say is W..O..W. Muthafucking wow okay. Like whaa?? Ok, Ms. Reisz, if I could ask one question of you, it would be how the fraggle rock did you think of Soren? Where did he come from?
I was scared, appalled, and attracted to him all at the same time. Mind blowing…

The Siren made me laugh and cry. What a totally kick ass read, the ending totally shocked me, I thought I knew who Nora was writing about, but color me surprised when I found out. The Siren is tender and brutal, but I love every damn part of it.

If you have not read it, DO! But this story isn’t for the faint of heart. I’ll say like I said in my review in Master’s Hunt (Verity Ant). If you are not able to read this book without an open mind, then it isn’t for you…move along. But if you can open your mind…think outside of yourself, then pick The Siren up.
