Review: Michael’s Wings – Tiffany Reisz

Review: Michael’s Wings – Tiffany Reisz

Michael’s Wings… *sighs* I wish I had had the self control to read this selection of short novellas much slower. But that was simply impossible. The stories were all irresistible, and it made me so happy to be in the Orginal Sinners universe once more! Stories: All the stories in Michael’s Wings are set in the Original Sinners universe. If you know me at all, you know I absolutely love everything about the characters, the universe and the stories Reisz writes in this series. Each story brings something new to the table. A little quirk a character has. A different perspective on something that happened. A vulnerability that had been well hidden in the past. And, as always, the writing […]

Series Review: Up in the Air – R. K. Lilley

Series Review: Up in the Air – R. K. Lilley

In Flight is a light story, but heavy on the BDSM, with characters that kept their distance emotionally, even from me… In Flight is the first story in Up in the Air, and I was quite intrigued by the way Bianca observed James and vice versa. James appeared like a man who knew what he wanted, and then went after it. Bianca was cool and collected – except when it came to James. Between flirting and trying to get Bianca’s phone number during the flight, and then working, James was distant, but still observant. The interactions between the flight attendants made me smile, as they were bound to be tight-knit, at least during their flights. Bianca and her paintings definitely […]

Review: Wicked Bond – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Wicked Bond – Sawyer Bennett

Wicked Bond is (finally) Bridger’s story – and man, he’s had a tough life! But then again, most of the characters in this series have a dark, dark past, but still cannot help but hope for a bright future. Bridger’s backstory might be the darkest and most difficult to read about in the whole series! Wicked Bond showed how he was bound – to his past and the abuse he had suffered. How that colored so many of his decisions and relationships in the present. Maggie’s story was bleak as well, especially with how she arrived at Bridger’s doorstep and the fight she still had in front of her at that moment. For Bridger to feel something real about a […]

Review: Something Nice – Tiffany Reisz

Review: Something Nice – Tiffany Reisz

Something Nice gives Søren and Nora’s fans a glimpse into 24 hours in their life. A glimpse that shows almost the full rainbow of their feelings for each other, all the love, the fear, the hate, the generosity… It’s really all there. Something Nice is a way for Reisz to give back to her readers! A free story about Søren and Nora; it was like Christmas in July. And it fulfilled a craving I didn’t even know was there until I started reading. As always, it is a treat to be part of the intimate relationship between the two protagonists, and I just sighed with pleasure at this story – it started out extremely hot and heavy… and ended on […]

Review: Poinsettia – Tiffany Reisz

Review: Poinsettia – Tiffany Reisz

Poinsettia is the perfect Christmas story! Because young Søren showing humility and grace is not something I expected at all, but Reisz graciously gave it to me anyway. My Poinsettia review: One Christmas Eve, long ago, in a brothel in Rome, Søren might have spent the most peaceful and moving Christmas ever – in the company of a sadist madam, who wanted to teach him to keep his masochists alive… And that was a very powerful, beautifully written tale shared for free with The Original Sinners fans. I’m not going to say much about this, the quotes (which could have been many more!) can speak for themselves. The prose is absolutely gorgeous, and seeing a vulnerable side of Søren was […]

Review: Mine – Stacey Kennedy

Review: Mine – Stacey Kennedy

Mine is the seventh story in the Club Sin series, and this might be one of the reasons why I didn’t enjoy it all that much – not having read the other books in the series. However, I also found Presley to be very insecure and quite naïve, and Dmitri didn’t really seem all that dominant to me. My Mine review: I do kind of wish I had read the other Club Sin novels before I got to Mine, but at the same time, I really wanted to read this! A short, sexy romp was what I was looking for, and I didn’t really get that, though. There is a lot going on in Mine, and very little of it […]

Review: The Queen – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Queen – Tiffany Reisz

The Queen definitely does tie up loose ends, and it also shows the spectacular talent Ms. Reisz has with words… Everything Kingsley, Nora and Søren went through was worth it – because through all the heartache and pain, the found themselves, and each other, again. My The Queen review: While I am very sorry the Original Sinners series is over now, what a way to go! The Queen continues just after the end of The Virgin, however, most of the story folds out as a story Nora tells Søren, with only glimpses to the present. As always, Ms. Reisz’s storytelling is far above par, it’s always amazing to me how involved I have become in these characters, and how connected […]

Review: The Mistress – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Mistress – Tiffany Reisz

The Mistress shows yet another side of Nora, while bringing her allies to the forefront to do their best so she and Søren will stay safe… and alive. My The Mistress review: As the summary states, in The Mistress, Nora is held captive and she tells her captor a story every evening, both to keep both of them occupied and to stay alive to see another day. Of course, I, as a reader, was part of the audience to Nora’s stories as well. Stories about Kingsley, Søren, how they met, and their first kinky encounters. And learning more about the past the three main characters in The Original Sinners shared is something I crave more and more with each book. […]

Review: The Prince – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Prince – Tiffany Reisz

The Prince is so well written! Even with all the kink that kind of makes me uncomfortable, I love this series and the characters so much! My The Prince review: The Prince is different than the first two books in the Original Sinners series, if only for the fact that while Søren and Nora are separated for a big part of the story, I was still able to follow both of them. And I loved that Wes was so present, too, because of how things were left between him and Nora when they parted ways. The mystery wasn’t all that mysterious to me though, which is one part of why I didn’t give The Prince five stars. I thought some […]

Review: The Angel – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Angel – Tiffany Reisz

The Angel continues to show the strange world in which Nora evolves, surrounded by both friends and enemies. My The Angel review: One of the things I really loved in The Angel is that while Søren and Nora can still be seen as the main characters of the story, along with Kingsley, I also got to spend a lot of time with Michael and Griffin in this instalment. Michael was Nora’s angel in The Siren, and seeing him gain confidence and find love was nothing short of amazing. Once more, I was amazed at Ms. Reisz’s beautiful prose, because even when I was reading stuff that made me uncomfortable, I was frantically reading, pushing the ‘next page’ button on my […]
