Review: The Night Mark – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Night Mark – Tiffany Reisz

The Night Mark deals with hope – how we need hope to move forward. To get out of bed in the morning. To care for ourselves and others. To care for our planet. The Night Mark has a magical feel to it, and a lot of that comes from Reisz’s excellent writing. It’s like a novel in a poem with a fantastical story in which realistic characters live their lives to the best of their abilities. Hope and love are strong themes, and I had to wipe away a few tears at the ending, because it was so sweet and tender, and I wanted to stay with the characters a little longer. I think what I love the most every […]

Review: One Hot December – Tiffany Reisz

Review: One Hot December – Tiffany Reisz

One Hot December is the crown jewel of the Men at Work series – it’s beautiful, tender, hot, sweet, funny, flirt and my feels are all oh so invested! I think what surprised me the most with One Hot December was the complete and utter sense of tenderness I felt while reading about Ian and Flash! Reisz always manages to draw me in, but somehow, I got even more with this story – which is another surprise as it was only 224 pages long, and yet, I am completely and utterly satisfied. My heart is still beating hard and fast, and I am sure my eyes look a little wet, too. This story, it just has the best parts of […]

Review: Her Naughty Holiday – Tiffany Reisz

Review: Her Naughty Holiday – Tiffany Reisz

Her Naughty Holiday is awesome sauce yumminess galore! Well written, funny, hot, steamy, naughty, hilarious and with really good characters, too! Simply perfect. Delightful, and so much fun – those are just some adjectives that come to mind when trying to describe Her Naughty Holiday! And hiding in plain sight of the fluffy romance and steamy sexiness of this story, there is also a strong message concerning women. Or more importantly, outside expectations when it comes to women, and how they should live their lives. You know, what women need in their lives to be happy. Because it’s really as if we all share one consciousness, like those little green aliens in Toy Story. And we all need to be […]

Review: Her Halloween Treat – Tiffany Reisz

Review: Her Halloween Treat – Tiffany Reisz

Her Halloween Treat is such a great story, Reisz spins beautiful stories with characters I never want to leave. I don’t know how Reisz does it, but her stories always grabs me and pulls me in! Her Halloween Treat is no exception, as I fell instantly in love with both Joey and Chris. My feels were invested from the start, too, and the whole spectrum was involved. The way Reisz strings her words together to make beautiful sentences that become stories is a true piece of art, and I think I could print out a page of one of her books and frame it – that’s how much I love her writing. And while there were moments where Joey made […]

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: The Bourbon Thief – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Bourbon Thief – Tiffany Reisz

I’m not sure how Reisz does it – The Bourbon Thief has an amazing narrator who knows how to spin a story, and it’s like a mixture between a dark fairytale and a melancholy history lesson. The one and only progress update I made while I was reading The Bourbon Thief was this : This whole story has me on the edge of tears, there’s such a strong melancholy, or unfinished sadness here I can hardly stand it! And that feeling of being on the edge of tears stayed with me for the duration of the story – and I just couldn’t stop reading. Always needing to know what would happen next, I was completely mesmerized from start to finish. Reisz […]

Review: The Confessions – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Confessions – Tiffany Reisz

The Confessions is filled with tidbits of both Søren’s and Nora’s lives, and I loved the priest Ballard… so amazing! Reisz knows how to tell a story, and even the short stories that are shared in The Confessions are amazing! Of course, these would not be for those who haven’t read The Original Sinners series, because nothing would make sense. However, because I have read and loved that series, it was truly a joy to spend a little time with Søren and Ballard, then with Nora and Ballard. I loved how heartfelt their confessions were, and how open they both seemed to be – at two completely different times of their lives. The writing is beautiful and very moving, and […]

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: 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. […]
