Review – THE CHATEAU by Tiffany Reisz

The Chateau by Tiffany Reisz is now LIVE!! Grab yourself some Kingsley and enjoy this thrilling and erotic ride!

As the Jack-of-All-Wicked-Trades for a secretive French military intelligence agency, 24-year-old Lieutenant Kingsley Boissonneault has done it all—spied, lied, and killed under orders. But his latest assignment is quite out of the ordinary. His commanding officer’s nephew has disappeared inside a sex cult, and Kingsley has been tasked with bringing him home to safety.

The cult’s holy book is Story of O, the infamous French novel of extreme sado-masochism. Their château is a looking-glass world where women reign and men are their willing slaves. Or are they willing? It’s Kingsley’s mission to find out.

Once inside the château, however, Kingsley quickly falls under the erotic spell cast by the enigmatic Madame, a woman of wisdom, power, and beauty. She offers Kingsley the one thing he’s always wanted. But the price? Giving up forever the only person he’s ever loved.

*The Chateau is a new standalone Original Sinners novel from international bestseller Tiffany Reisz, author of The Siren and The Lucky Ones.*

It’s been no secret that this year has seen the Original Sinners series by Tiffany Reisz become my favourite series of all time. After finally starting these book in January, I have read and re-read them, and so when I heard that Kingsley was getting his own book where we go back in time to witness what he got up to during his time in the French Foreign Legion, I couldn’t contain my excitement!

I dove in almost as soon as The Chateau hit my kindle, and I immediately got lost in Kingsley’s world. Getting to know a younger Kingsley during the period of time where Søren wasn’t in his life, at least not in the physical form anyway, was interesting to say the least.

I loved seeing this part of him – it was the Kingsley we love, all while also being someone new, at least to us. I loved his time at the Chateau, the twists, the memories, the whole ride. It was a thrilling and incredibly sexy read, which should come as no surprise being a novel about the one and only Kingsley Boissonneault. As soon as I finished, I went right back to the beginning. A fantastic addition to an incredible series.

Review – THE LUCKY ONES by Tiffany Reisz

The latest Tiffany Reisz gothic suspense novel was just as addicting as her previous novels. Check out my review of The Lucky Ones!

They called themselves “the lucky ones.” They were seven children either orphaned or abandoned by their parents and chosen by legendary philanthropist and brain surgeon Dr. Vincent Capello to live in The Dragon, his almost magical beach house on the Oregon Coast. Allison was the youngest of the lucky ones living an idyllic life with her newfound family…until the night she almost died, and was then whisked away from the house and her adopted family forever.

Now, thirteen years later, Allison receives a letter from Roland, Dr. Capello’s oldest son, warning her that their father is ill and in his final days. Allison determines she must go home again and confront the ghosts of her past. She’s determined to find out what really happened that fateful night–was it an accident or, as she’s always suspected, did one of her beloved family members try to kill her?

But digging into the past can reveal horrific truths, and when Allison pieces together the story of her life, she’ll learns the terrible secret at the heart of the family she once loved but never really knew.

A vivid and suspenseful tale of family, grief, love—and the dark secrets that bind everything together—Tiffany Reisz’s latest is enthralling to the final page.

Can Tiffany Reisz do no wrong? This author seems to knock it out of the park with every single book, even when I go into the book unsure as to whether I will like it or not. I always end up instantly gripped by her words, and her storylines have me devouring the pages and constantly desperate for more.

For the first half of The Lucky Ones, I was convinced the Capello’s were the most perfect family in the world. It was impossible not to love each one of them wholeheartedly, but as I read more, I became very unsure and torn between “I love them so much” and “they’re all crazy!!!” No matter what happened, that soft spot I had developed for them remained, and I won’t say which side won out by the end, I’ll leave it up to you to discover for yourselves.

There were some absolutely fantastic characters with intriguing back stories which I would love to see more of in any possible future books, though I’m not sure how likely that is.

What I do know for definite, is that I will continue to read every word this author puts out there, and no doubt I will love each and every one.

*ARC received in exchange for an honest review*



*Though all of these books can be read as standalones, they are all linked (and fantastic) so I suggest reading them all*

Review – ORIGINAL SINNERS (THE WHITE YEARS) by Tiffany Reisz

If you have yet to pick up the Original Sinners series by Tiffany Reisz, 1-what the hell are you waiting for? 2-step away from this review! The series is split in to two parts, the first four books are titled The Red Years (you can find my spoiler free review for that HERE), and then there’s the next four books, The White Years. This is my review for The White Years, so if you are yet to have read any of these books, I wouldn’t risk any possible Red Years spoilers. If you have read the first four books and want to know whether it’s worth moving on to the next four, you’re in the right place! Check out my review below. (The synopsis is for the first book – The Saint – only to avoid any spoilers.)

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 Marcus 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.

After being swept away by The Red Years (the first four books in the Original Sinners series) I strengthened my addiction of this world by jumping straight in and devouring The White Years books. As if I didn’t love these characters enough before, my heart is now bursting at the seams to try and contain them. The White Years sees present time Søren, Nora, and Kingsley take us on a journey into their pasts, so we finally get to see for ourselves, exactly how our favourite kinksters came to be.

Whereas The Red Years gave me 5 stars across the board, The White Years was a mixed bag. The Saint had my emotions all over the place. I started this book and was messaging my friend saying “if this book is going where I think it’s going then I can’t continue, I just can’t put myself through that!!!!” She basically told me to shut up and keep reading. And I’m so glad I did. The 5 star streak was going strong with this book!

The King was without a doubt my favourite book of the whole series. This is where a new rating comes in to play – 6 stars. There was honestly nothing about this book I didn’t love. It is, of course, a book about the one and only Kingsley Edge. If you don’t love him yet, you will after this book, mark my words. Next up was The Virgin. Now, to even the scales a bit, this one was a 4 star read for me. Nora in the convent away from Søren unfortunately didn’t really interest me, BUT that’s quite possibly because the rest of the book was Kingsley and Jules, and I was simply desperate for more from them.

The series was brought to an end with The Queen, and it was yet another 5 stars from me. The most perfect way to end what has been the most incredible series I think I have ever read. Of course, the world of the 8th Circle doesn’t end here, there are novellas and short stories, and also deleted scenes, all which add their own touch of magic to the Original Sinners series, but I’ll save that for another review.

All in all? This is a truly unforgettable series which I recommend 100%! Everyone needs a little Søren, Nora and Kingsley in their life!

“Welcome to the Kingdom.”

Review – ORIGINAL SINNERS (THE RED YEARS) by Tiffany Reisz

For years people told me to read Tiffany Reisz’s Original Sinners series; yeah, yeah, sure I will, I always said! But for YEARS my copy of The Siren just sat there. Unread. Fast forward to January 2018 and I finally did it. I picked it up, and within 5 days, I had devoured the first 4 books in this series, known as The Red Years. I’ve only posted the synopsis for book 1 below as I don’t want to give anything away, but my review is a completely spoiler free review (as always) of all 4 books.

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.

Wow, wow, and wow some more. I have read many books over the years containing sex. Many books filled to the brim with BDSM. But no books quite like Ms Tiffany Reisz’s Original Sinners series. Friends and followers of my blog will know I have suffered terribly with book funks over recent years. Struggling to pick up books by my most favourite authors. I lost my love of the written word, and I was honestly scared I would never get it back. Then one evening, in early January 2018, I had a random little urge to start The Siren, book 1 in the Original Sinners (The Red Years) series. What could it hurt? Worst case was I wouldn’t get in to it like most other books I tried. But what actually happened, had both myself and my friends celebrating.

Not only *could* I read, but I was *desperate* for more. I honestly can’t remember the last time I felt this intense need to read. Every spare second I had, my kindle was in my hand. Before work, after work, in bed until my eyes physically couldn’t stay open any longer. Søren, Kingsley and Nora consumed me, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. While I was lost inside the pages of these beautiful books, I found the most wonderful thing in the world – my love of reading. From the beginning of book 1, until the end of book 4, this series was nothing less than stunning, sexy, sensual, and scintillating. A true masterpiece of literary fiction.

I would be lying if I said that Søren and Kingsley (our two male main characters) hadn’t worked their way into more than a few of my dreams over the last week and a half. The Original Sinners are intensely sexy. Without a doubt the sexiest books I’ve ever read. I find a lot of books these days are all sex and no substance, yet another reason I got bored of reading last year, but Tiffany Reisz manages to fill your head with kinky fantasies, and fill your heart with the love of characters who are so fleshed out you would swear they are real people. I cried with them, I laughed with them, I was scared with them, and I loved so incredibly hard with them.

Tiffany Reisz weaves some very strong magic in her words, and I cannot thank her enough for the gift she gave me when I turned that very first page and walked into the world of The 8th Circle.

Review – THE RED by Tiffany Reisz

The Queen of Kink is back! Check out The Red, by Tiffany Reisz now! 

the red

Mona Lisa St. James made a deathbed promise that she would do anything to save her mother’s art gallery. Unfortunately, not only is The Red painted red, but it’s in the red. She soon realizes she has no choice but to sell it.

Just as she realizes she has no choice but to sell it, a mysterious man comes in after closing time and makes her an offer: He will save The Red if she agrees to submit to him for the period of one year.

The man is handsome, English, and terribly tempting…but surely her mother didn’t mean for Mona to sell herself to a stranger. Then again, she did promise to do anything to save The Red…

The Red is a standalone novel of erotic fantasy from Tiffany Reisz, international bestselling author of The Bourbon Thief and the Original Sinners series.

When you dive into a Tiffany Reisz book, you quickly learn you will be getting a book filled with clever writing, an engaging storyline, and lots of extreme sexiness. No one writes erotic romance like this author, and The Red has all that and more.

I really enjoyed this story and I instantly became intrigued to know more about these characters, especially the mysterious and downright devilish male lead. To say this book is sexy is an understatement; I was fanning myself on numerous occasions, and the role-play…hot damn. I’ve seen role-play be done many a time, but never (and I mean never) like this.

Just give it a go and witness this kinky twist for yourself, you will not be disappointed! And then that ending…sigh…I had biggest grin on my face!! Another corker of a novel from Tiffany Reisz; I cant wait to see what she brings us next.

Review – THE BOURBON THIEF by Tiffany Reisz

It was my first book by Tiffany Reisz, it definitely won’t be my last. The Bourbon Thief is LIVE!!

the bourbon thief

From the internationally celebrated author of the Original Sinners series comes a brand-new tale of betrayal, revenge and a family scandal that bore a 150-year-old mystery

When Cooper McQueen wakes up from a night with a beautiful stranger, it’s to discover he’s been robbed. The only item stolen—a million-dollar bottle of bourbon. The thief, a mysterious woman named Paris, claims the bottle is rightfully hers. After all, the label itself says it’s property of the Maddox family who owned and operated Red Thread Bourbon distillery since the last days of the Civil War until the company went out of business for reasons no one knows… No one except Paris.

In the small hours of a Louisville morning, Paris unspools the lurid tale of Tamara Maddox, heiress to the distillery that became an empire. But the family tree is rooted in tainted soil and has borne rotten fruit. Theirs is a legacy of wealth and power, but also of lies, secrets and sins of omission. The Maddoxes have bourbon in their blood—and blood in their bourbon. Why Paris wants the bottle of Red Thread remains a secret until the truth of her identity is at last revealed, and the century-old vengeance Tamara vowed against her family can finally be completed.

I feel like I’ve had this page open to write my review for a full week. I feel that way because that’s exactly what has happened. I’ve started at this page every day since I finished I reading this book. my very first Tiffany Reisz book, and what a truly amazing book it was.

Being that I loved The Bourbon Thief so much, you’d think it would be easy to write a review for it, right? Wrong. So wrong. There’s no way I could possibly find the words to adequately describe just how fantastic this book is. As soon as I finished reading, I was instantly hit with a book hangover I knew would be hard to shift.

I was sat there in a haze, just trying to find the words. I still don’t have them but I just need to make sure you guys don’t miss out on reading this book. The Bourbon Thief was brilliantly written, filled with twists and turns, scandal and deceit, seduction and so much drama, I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. I literally loved every single aspect of this book and it’s a story I just know I’m going to be thinking about for a long time to come.

Now that I have finished reading and a week has gone by, I miss the characters. I miss what they had to say, the story they told, and the love that they shared. I miss the gripping storyline and the words that I constantly craved more of. It was honestly one heck of a book, and one of my very favourites of this year. Without a doubt, its a must read for 2016.
