In a story with themes that will cross the line for some readers, , Reisz tackles the story of erotica writer Nora Sutherlin 7.who is leaving her old publishing house. The head of her new publisher 7-9 orders Zachary Easton to edit Nora's novel. Zachary, still shell-shocked by his impending divorce back in his native Britain, is six weeks away from moving to the publisher's Los Angeles office and the last thing he wants to do is edit what he considers to be trash. Zach takes on the project with one caveat: he will have complete creative control. Zach soon finds that Nora isn't the trash-writing trollop he assumed, but a complicated woman whose twisted ideas of love were formed early in life. As both battle their demons‚--îNora, a sadistic old lover and Zach, regret over his failed‚--îthey find a true connection. While both characters are well drawn, the author never quite makes either completely sympathetic, and many are likely to find the themes contained in the story‚--îincluding hard-core S&M and a sexual relationship with a Catholic priest‚--îobjectionable. Sensationalistic but not overly compelling.
"Tiffany Reisz is a smart, artful, and masterful new voice in erotic fiction! An erotica star on the rise!"-Award-winning author Lacey Alexander
"Dazzling, devastating and sinfully erotic, Reisz writes unforgettable characters you'll either want to know or want to be. The Siren is an alluring book-within-a-book, a story that will leave you breathless and bruised, aching for another chapter with Nora Sutherlin and her men."
-Miranda Baker, author of Bottoms Up and Soloplay
The Original Sinners series certainly lives up to its name: it's mindbendingly original and crammed with more sin than you can shake a hot poker at. I haven't read a book this dangerous and subversive since Chuck Palahniuk's Fight Club. The most shocking thing, however, is how much you'll feel for the characters. If your heart doesn't break at least ten times over the course of The Siren, check yourself into a morgue."--Andrew Shaffer, author, Great Philosophers Who Failed at Love
"Provocative, smart and downright cheeky. The Siren put me through my paces and had me begging for more."
-Emma Petersen, author of Reign of Pleasure
"Daring, sophisticated, and literary. . .exactly what good erotica should be."

A touch of BDSM is titillating but The Siren is too sadistic for my taste. I did not like Nora. Poor Wes and Zachary were pawns in some sick game Nora played with her sadistic... Read morePublished 1 day ago by CMack

I liked the book. At times I found the plot moving slowly. I will probably pick up the second book in the series but not immediately.Published 6 days ago by Amy
Well the writing was a zillion times better than 50 Shades of Gray - what a joke. But the characters were predictable, and overall I thought the story was kind of boring. Read morePublished 10 days ago by P. Erickson

Not sure if I'll go further in the series, but the actual story line surprised me. I liked and disliked the characters all at once. For sure, weirdness abounds.Published 24 days ago by jackie d
