I’ve been a huge fan of Tiffany Reisz since I picked up The Siren all those years ago. Ms. Reisz has an amazing writing style that always draws me in. I wouldn’t call her books humorous, but they do have humorous parts to them. She just writes characters that are so comfortable in their own skins. They are who they are and aren’t at all ashamed of their wants or needs. She does have some side characters who have insecurities that mix really well with her strong willed main characters.
In this story, Mona runs an art gallery. She promised her mother that she would do whatever was necessary to keep the gallery up and running. However, the gallery is in some financial trouble after her mother’s long illness. Mona takes her promise seriously and does whatever it takes to save the gallery. When Malcolm comes into her gallery and makes her an offer. She just has to agree to be with him, no questions. She makes this deal to fulfill her promise.
The story between Mona and Malcolm is an interesting one. Malcolm pushes Mona’s boundaries a little more with each visit. Things between them move faster than anything I would want to try, but if I were in Mona’s position, who knows. How far would you go to keep a deathbed promise to a loved one? I guess one never knows until they are in that position.
This is a very erotic tale. This story will not be for everyone. It is erotica. There are a lot of sex scenes. There is also a story woven in with the sex scenes. There is the intrigue between Mona and Malcolm. There is also the mystery about who Malcolm is and why he visits so infrequently. I loved the fantasy that goes with this story. I don’t want to go into too much detail on it, because I think it is best learned as you go along with Mona. I will just add that I loved the ending when we finally learn the mystery behind Malcolm.
I really loved this story. I love Tiffany Reisz’s storytelling style. She has an uncanny ability to push the readers boundaries. At times, I feel a little uncomfortable when how far she pushes those boundaries, but in the end, I thank her for taking me to that place. Maybe I’m a bit of a masochist when it comes to my erotica. I also really love her characters. They are just so well developed, even when we don’t much about them, like Malcolm. They are still very deep. This is not a book that I would recommend as your first Tiffany Reisz book, unless you’re a fan of erotica. I would highly recommend fans of The Original Sinners to try this one.
The Red Audiobook Narration
Elizabeth Hart did a great job with the narration of this story. I really fell into the fantasy. She really set the mood to all the different scenes, no matter what they entailed. I really felt like had the same feelings that Mona felt. I like her voices for all the characters, though there isn’t a large cast in this book. I would love to listen to her narrate another book.
Tiffany Reisz is the author of the internationally bestselling and award-winning Original Sinners series for Mira Books (Harlequin/Mills & Boon). Tiffany’s books inhabit a sexy shadowy world where romance, erotica and literature meet and do immoral and possibly illegal things to each other. She describes her genre as “literary friction,” a term she stole from her main character, who gets in trouble almost as often as the author herself. She lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her husband, author Andrew Shaffer, and two cats. If she couldn’t write, she would die.
