[Review] Seven Day Loan/The Gift - Tiffany Reisz

Released: December 1st, 2010

A trained submissive, Eleanor will do whatever her master commands… even spend a week with a stranger. Daniel has been a recluse since his wife's death, and Eleanor's lover thinks spending time with her will be therapeutic – especially since Daniel is also a Dom.

Despite her defiant streak, Eleanor can't resist giving in to Daniel's erotic demands. But while she'll let him have her body, she's determined to keep a guard around her heart. Even if Daniel wants to make Eleanor his permanently…

"I won't ask you to stay, but I want to"

Tiffany Reisz, Tiffany Reisz, do you hear that? Yes, that distant sound. That is the sound of my heart breaking into tiny pieces.

Seven Day Loan was a short novella that follows Eleanor's master's close friend as he tries to overcome his grief that has been going on for too long. With Eleanor, well, if you've read the other books, you'd know how she is. The ending was heart-breaking yet enlightening. A beautiful read.

OHMYGOD. I loved this one even if it was really short (which is a total shame because I liked Daniel). It starts out roughly as Eleanor refuses to do what her master tells her. I mean, I'd be pissed too if I were in her shoes.

But then Daniel le sigh

He is a fucking librarian.

A. Fucking. Librarian.

Both literally and fangirl-y. He does fuck and he is a fucking librarian.
"God, I love a man who reads."
HIGH FIVE, ELEANOR, HIGH FIVE! Because, yes, I do find a man who reads attractive as he proves himself to be much more intelligent than men who don't. But then he's also a super shmexy Dom so he's totally my type. Smart and sexy? Double threat. Plus, he's vulnerable. TRIPLE FREAKING THREAT OKAY.

At first he resisted Eleanor's charming charms but then they're… sighhh.
Daniel: "I keep forgetting who I'm dealing with. The Queen of Kink."Eleanor: "I'm a trained submissive. More like King's Consort. I'm not worthy to hold actual rank."Daniel: "Well, I'm honored to consort with you."Eleanor: "Then consort with me already."
He of course is still broken over his wife but there comes a time – always – after grief where you meet someone who will turn your life upside down and help you move past this depression. Eleanor was that person to Daniel. But they were both attracted to each other because they were both broken in a way, who isn't? Humans are just naturally attracted to broken things.

Okay, but enough about that. Let's talk sex.
Eleanor: "So you are a library. What does that make me then? A seven-day loan?"Daniel: "Seven-day loan… I'm not sure I like the thought of giving you back."Eleanor: "But what about overdue fines?"Daniel: "I think I can afford them."
and then he kisses her and so on and so on.

There was this one quote that I just felt like it was BAM! No women would ever admit this shit but it's so fucking true. No matter how tough you act or how tough you actually are, this just applies to everyone I guess. It's in the blood.
Eleanor: "I know how she must have felt. Pressure to be in charge of the world. So much responsibility. The whole world on her… to let go and just give herself to you, to give up to you…"Daniel: "I'm glad you understand… few women do."Eleanor: "Oh, they do. They're just afraid to admit it. Yeah, equal pay for equal work and our bodies our selves and Gloria Steinem and all that jazz… but in that dusty dark little corner of every woman's heart where we keep our maps of Tierra del Fuego lives the hunger to fetch a powerful man his slippers on her hands and knees."
TA-DA! Tiffany Reisz blows me away again with her honesty. I think that this is so damn true. Women are just afraid to admit it. It doesn't make you a weaker heroine, it makes you a stronger one in fact because you're brave enough to accept that fact. I'm a feminist and even I have to agree with this quote.
