[Review] The Siren - Tiffany Reisz

Released: June 24th, 2012

Notorious Nora Sutherlin is known for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest one is different - more serious and personal - and she's sure it'll be her breakout book...if it ever sees the light of day.

Zachary Easton, the fog, holds Nora's fate in his hands. The demanding and uptight British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards - in six weeks - or it's no deal.

Nora's grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining...and shockingly arousing. And a dangerous former lover has her wondering which is more torturous - staying away from him...or returning to his bed?

Nora thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in a world where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple.

"There are only two reasons why you leave someone you're in love with - either it's the right thing to do, or it's the only thing you do."

MOTHER OF EVERYTHING HOLY! This book shocked me in so many different ways and it absolutely blew me away and tore me apart to a million fucking pieces at the same time. It wasn't only about the dom/sub relationships you can read in Fifty Shades. It wasn't the simple theory of S&M. It was so much more. The book spoke about identity, love, loss, separation, moving on, pain and, well, pleasure. It explained how sometimes pain is a way of showing how much you truly love someone, and about having to let go of the things you love most for the best.

Nora was sexy as hell! I honestly fell in love with her character so many times. It's not only because she was smoking hot and hilarious, she was feisty and tough as nails. We see how strong her character is in facing her decisions and also her past, as well as her present. She has to control her feelings in her "relationships" so that nothing goes out of hand. But Nora is also weak when it comes to certain temptations. She has to figure out a way to balance between her life with Wesley, whom you will meet in the beginning, her role as a writer, and also her mysterious and hidden alter-ego.

Zach is another interesting character besides Søren. He was freaking hot. He was like smoking hot. Not only in the way he manages to handle Nora. He's tough, yeah sure. But the fact that he has some vulnerability in him makes him even more attractive. He doesn't give in easily to Nora's ridiculous demands. He can actually keep her at bay - which actually turns her on.
(P.S. He's not like Jensen Ackles above since Zach is so uptight)

But honestly, I really didn't expect much from this book. I thought it was going to be the simple and romantic novel kind of thing. But it wasn't. It was much darker and twisted than that. But, at the same time, the author inserts such witty phrases and lines that you just can't help but laugh. I highlighted so many lines and quotes here. It was just so damn good. 

WARNING: Do not read if you are uncomfortable with the idea of extreme dom/sub activities
