I wasn't sure about how I would feel about this. But when I finished it, I loved it. Reisz is a freaking genius. I loved how this story came together. Nora is a very smart woman, but it is obvious she has a lot of baggage. The connection between her and Daniel was very interesting. I thought it would have been scary at first, but they worked. I felt sorry for Daniel and how things have been for him. He definitely stopped living after his wife died.
There was a lot of emotional baggage from Daniel. That is what made this story for me. Eleanor wants to escape Soren, but doesn't know how. Daniel is too scared to leave and wants to have Nora to himself. So she has to choose between one prison or another. I loved the emotion we got in this and it wasn't just all about sex. As I have said before, I stayed clear from BDSM for a while. But books like this have opened my eyes. Reisz does such a good job with this story. I am glad I read The Siren first before I read this because this wouldn't have made much sense. I had a much better sense of the characters when I got into this; well Soren and Nora. I hope we get the chance to see Daniel sometime down the road. I do have one complaint though.Read more ›
I waivered on how to rate this story. It was a battle of quality versus quantity for me. Is it well written and gripping? Did I enjoy the heck out it? Unequivocally, yes. Is it an extremely short and quick read? Well, at 38 pages, I'd say so. But, ultimately, I had to give the story and Miz Reisz the props deserved. Because this story packs quite a wallop in those 38 pages.
And I loved seeing a younger, dare I say spunkier, Eleanor (our heroine from The Siren). What I wouldn't give for another short set around this same time period - with more Soren. (Please?)
Sigh. Aherm. Anyway, as I was saying, this story focuses on twenty-three year old Eleanor and her seven days with Daniel, a man who hasn't left his house once during the three years since his wife's death. What those two can accomplish in a week is amazing. And hot as hades.
Miz Reisz wonderfully combines emotion with kink. Adds humor along with the bdsm elements (and doesn't sugar coat them, either). And even though she doesn't give us romance or even a HEA, I still want more... And so will you.
If you loved this short story, and haven't yet read The Siren - what are you waiting for?? The Siren is one of my favorite books of 2012. It still haunts me and consumes my thoughts.
"So you," she said, meeting his eyes, "are a librarian. What does that make me then? A seven-day loan?"
Daniel laughed as he set the book aside. He moved toward her and lightly gripped her knees.
"Seven-day loan... I'm not sure I like the thought of giving you back."
-- A Romantic Book Affairs Review
I have to admit that I struggled with the idea of Eleanor just submitting to being loaned out between these two guys so casually, like a power tool or something. That whole concept is just bizarre to me. I guess I wouldn't make a good submissive, because there's no way in hell that would have ever happened. So, I'm still struggling to wrap my head around such a foreign notion.
Aside from the fact that I seemed to struggle more with Eleanor's weeklong fate more than she did, the story was great. I was surprised at how intimate and emotional the relationship between Daniel and Eleanor was, in such a short span of time. Talk about evolving quickly! However, it never felt forced or rushed and the storyline progressed at a good pace.
I cannot wait to begin the next book in the series and am hoping that I'll be seeing more of these two. This novella was incredibly hot and has left me wanting more of this story. If the rest of this series is half as good as this short prequel was, then I'm in for a treat!
In the Gift, or Seven Day Loan (if you'd like); he gives her to Daniel for seven days. Just seven days for Eleanor 'Nora' to give a man a reason to live after having three years of wanting nothing more than to fade away.
Daniel is a Dom who has not been himself since the passing of his wife three years ago, being nothing more than a possession, Eleanor is passed to the man in order to awaken something within him that's been sleeping. She could say no, refuse to go; but she won't deny the him anything he wants.
Eleanor quickly realizes that there is much more to the man that she expected, that her task is much more than giving her body to another man - but giving him something to want to live for. And in turn... (view spoiler)
In such a short period of time I was completely ready to jump ship and change my team name to Daniel. I know that it doesn't take much to cause my eyes to leak, but I was taken aback by the fact that these pages had so many moments where I just wanted to do nothing but cry my eyes out.
"I'll let you leave.... But I'll make sure you miss me."
Having not read anything beyond The Siren at this point, I can say that I am already completely connected to 'Nora' thus far and my feelings towards Soren are not quite carved into stone. For everything I felt about him that had me teetering on edge there is something that pulls me back just as quickly. I am excited to continue on with this journey to see what becomes of this wonderful cast of characters.
