Thank you to Net Galley for giving me the opportunity to read this ARC.
First off, if you haven’t read The Siren, the first book in this series, I recommend that you do that because this review will likely contain spoilers.
Nora Sutherlin, ex-dominatrix and published author, is back in this mesmerizing sequel. Nora believes that everything is going well for her. Her book has been published and she’s back with her sadist priest, Soren. But everything changes when Soren finds himself on the short list to become bishop.
When a reporter begins to snoop, he ships Nora and the young suicide survivor, Michael, to stay with Griffin Fiske for the summer. While Soren is fending off the reporter for the summer, Nora spends her summer having a much better time with Griffin, whom Soren is known to hate, and Michael, whom she’s been chosen to train as a submissive.
Although Nora is having a delightful time with the two young men, she can’t help but let her thoughts wonder to Wesley, the young virgin who used to share her home.
I absolutely adored this book. While I loved The Siren, I found this book to be so much more to me. I found this surprising because I am not one to enjoy any type of M/M sex scenes, but the ones in this one had me enthralled.
I love Nora’s smart mouth. Half the time I believe that she says the things she does just so she can feel the wrath of Soren. Honestly, I don’t blame her.
I love Soren’s sadistic ways. I never would have guessed that I would come to understand why someone would be involved with a Sadist, but I have. He’s so….just, damn. I can’t even describe it.
There were several times in this book that my mouth dropped, and not from any of the sexual scenes. The roller coaster ride that Reisz takes the reader on is amazing and honestly, I didn’t see most of it coming. The cliffhanger at the end of this book has me saying only two things: When’s the next book coming? And Team Soren forever.
