Nora's previous books have been a modest success but this book is special to her and she needs Zach to make her book a hit. The two begin a whirlwind working relationship that stretches beyond the book as Zach begins to gravitate on Nora's axis.
Nora's life is complicated and includes a 19 year old virginal "assistant" / roomie, a to-die-for ex-lover Priest Søren, and her secret life of being a dominatrix. Needless to say she was quite an interesting character.
This book has been recommended to me countless times and I finally read it for a challenge and I have to say- it just didn't give me the effect I thought I would have. First, let me say this is an AMAZING book- absolute top quality erotica! I enjoyed the story very much- it's just the characters that hindered me from falling entirely in love.
I rarely come across this- but I did not like one single character in this book. Zach would have to be my favorite- if I HAD to choose. With Nora I just couldn't connect to her- I love me a hot Domme but I would like to read about a Domme who doesn't still needs a man's shoulder to cry on. She just irritated me with her wishy-washy behavior and I felt very uncomfortable with her relationships- they were not sexy in my opinion. I won't go into detail but I must have missed something because I absolutely hated Søren and thought Wesley was way too young and naive.
*sigh* Overall I'm still interested in seeing where the story goes- I believe I will read the next book and continue to give the series a chance~ who knows maybe I'll grow to love one of the existing characters xx
I got that Nora is the character and Zach is her editor and all but it was weird for me in some places.
I also got that Wesley was Nora's intern but for what? What kind of intern? Why was he living with her?
Also, what male college student passes up sex with THE Dominatrix? Totally unbelievable for me.
And what kind of priest beats the ever loving spirit out of someone, voluntary or not?
I'm undecided if I'm going to read the next one in the series.
One thing I really loved in The Siren is that Nora is an author, and Zach her editor. And I have to say I enjoyed the e-mails going back and forth between them, with Zach telling her to cut, cut, cut, and Nora wanting to keep at least some of the sex scenes. And the ‘show-not-tell’ the flow of the writing, it was like a love story with words, and then there was other loves stories as well. And the way Nora had absolutely no fear of going after what she wanted, grabbing onto life with both hands, that made me fall in love with her a little.
Of course, The Siren is a BDSM erotica, however, I never felt really awkward, maybe because Zach was doing that for me. Not familiar with that lifestyle, Zach was properly shocked, and so I was in a sense relieved of my own shock. And as the story unfolded, things actually got more complicated, because Nora really has a heart of gold, and Zach needed her help. He was able to also help her back for a while, and I enjoyed their funny word-sparring, the way they grew to respect each other even with all their differences, and how they both worked very hard to make Nora’s book be the best it could be.
All readers who have heard about The Siren, and The Original Sinners series know the name Søren. And let me tell you, he really, truly scared me! Good thing both Nora and Zach were there to protect me from him. I don’t think I’ve ever met a more manipulative character than Søren, because even though he and Nora weren’t a couple anymore, he somehow managed to be involved in every aspect of her life anyway. And he whispered little ‘truths’ to her, and she almost blindly followed what he told her.
The characters in The Siren are all fleshed out, the four main characters more so than the others, but even Zach’s assistant, and the mean co-worker weren’t one-dimensional, and it was great to get to know them, even those who scared me. And I have to say that the story is quite addictive, which is why my review won’t continue to sing praises to Ms. Reisz, because I need to start reading The Angel…
