The Saint: The Original Sinners, Book 5 | [Tiffany Reisz]

The Saint: The Original Sinners, Book 5

Rebellious, green-eyed Eleanor never met a rule she didn't want to break. Sick of her mother's zealotry and the confines of Catholic school, she declares that she'll never go to church again. But her first glimpse of beautiful, magnetic Father Marcus Stearns - Søren to her and only her - and his lust-worthy Italian motorcycle is an epiphany. Eleanor is consumed, yet even she knows that being in love with a priest can't be right. But when one desperate mistake nearly costs Eleanor everything, it is Søren who steps in to save her.

    "Finally a Performance worthy of the material!"
    What did you love best about The Saint?

    I loved the beginning of Soren and Nora's story. I love this series and can't wait for the next book in The White Years to come out in December.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narration was wonderful.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Soren comes to talk to Nora in jail.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Tiffany Reisz always makes me laugh and cry. She is one of my favorite authors.

    Story
    "Ms Reisz keeps getting better"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Saint to be better than the print version?

    Elizabeth Hart is a great narrator. This audio version is sooo much better than reading, because I feel like I am in the room while Nora tells her story. It is so much more enjoyable to hear the accents and voice inflections than imagining it from words on a page. Also I can listen while driving, walking or doing repetitive work around the house. A good audio book makes mundane tasks so much more interesting and tolerable. Besides, no one knows what a great BDSM scene I just listened to while picking up veggies in the frozen food section. They probably think my sly smile is for the peas.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Saint?

    I love everything about this book, but I loved Nora's speech near the end and the whole way Ms Reisz structured this book between past and present. She ended this book without ending the story brilliantly. Ms Reisz is a talented writer and is getting better with each book. I should be sick of these characters by the 5th book or the plot should be waning or the conflict contrived. But Nora and company just get more interesting, the plot more engrossing and the conflict so intoxicating that I can't wait to read/hear/know more. I must say it again - BRILLIANT.


    What about Elizabeth Hart’s performance did you like?

    Perfect


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes. Especially the at the end.


    Any additional comments?

    I want to hear more of it all.

    "Ah-MAZE'ing"
    What did you love best about The Saint?

    Niko and all this Sorren.
    Also, I don't think this is a spoiler as it was such a small bit, but the part where Elle meets Lockland. "Everyone calls me Locky. Everyone but you. You call me, Sir." #gulp #chills


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    While I love Sorren - I find myself more drawn to the type of man Niko is. Which is more about personality and lifestyle than his situationally submissive role, here.


    What about Elizabeth Hart’s performance did you like?

    It was wonderful. Affable.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    THE SAINT shows you the fiery edge where desire, pain, and love dance and has you begging to edge.


    Any additional comments?

    More, please?

    "The education of Nora!"

    If you love Nora as much as I do, you will love her more after listening to The Saint. It is her beginning...you will laugh and cry and hold your breath at times. This is Nora and Soren from the start and it is so good!

    "I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!"

    6 stars for me! I LOVED this book! This series gave me mixed emotions in the beginning just because of the religious factor but that lasted all of 2 chapters! This is such an original story and not once did I think I knew what was going to happen next. Book 5 has given me a book hangover, I have no desire to start anything new now, I just want to forget I just read it and start it all over again! I loved hearing the beginning of the story and I think listening to it after made it so much better than it would have been had this book been first. I hope Nora, Soren, Kingsley and the rest of these characters have a lot more stories to tell! I can't wait for the next book! I will ready anything by this author and am pushing this series on all my friends ;)

    "Great series disappointing book 5"

    I love this series but was very disappointed in this book. It was nothing more than consolidation of Nora’s life in to one book.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "WOW!!! What a Great Book"

    This book is different from any other I have listened to. Beware it is not for the faint hearted with explicit sex scenes and BDSM content. Having said that - I COULDN'T put it down!! I didn't WANT to put it down!! I fell in love with the world and characters Tiffany created! Her writing style is superb and she helps you navigate the world she created. Never did I feel lost or as if I was being taken for a ride. I TRUSTED Tiffany to share details when they needed to be shared and loved it when she illustrated things instead of telling me things.

    Ahhh Eleanor! The girl after my own heart! I simply LOVED her! She is strong and independent even at a young age. I loved how she is curious and isn't afraid to question things. She is sweet (though she'll tell you she isn't), rebellious (not just because she questions things) and she has a bit of a destructive side. She hasn't had it easy, but she tries to make the best of it. All this and she's only 15 years old!

    Søren is... a... uhm..... a priest. And that should make him off limits, right? But it doesn't. He's a man. He is human. He is .... Søren. He is complicated, mysterious, honest, loyal, faithful, smart, headstrong.... I could go on and on, but you can find out more when you listen to the book!

    The best part of this book is getting to peel the layers off of Søren. He’s not a hero; he’s not an anti-hero. He is not quite the Byronic hero, instead he is a set of contradictions – light and dark, tender and cruel, tragic and heartwarming. He is shaped and formed by his past. But whether he is born this way or shaped this way, at the end he is a sadist. Though this is not a word in my everyday vocabulary, I am challenged to see that concept in a different way.

    Okay, so he's a Priest and she's only 15 years old. While some may view this as a reason to not read the book(s) or find this to be "wrong", the way Tiffany tells their story, you will understand and see what everyone else is talking about.

    The bantering between Søren and Eleanor is fantastic! Loved every bit of it! And OMG, the sexual tension between these two. YIKES!!! Add Kingsley to the mix and yeah.... Awesomeness!!

    I will say that I was a tad bit concerned that I would be "lost" as this is part of a series. However, as "The Saint" is a prequel to the entire series, I feel that you can start with this and then continue with the series. Others have stated that it is best to read them in order as you will get a better understanding of things (i.e. their relationship).

    Overall, a fantastic listen! Tiffany has become an auto-buy author for me! I have added the entire series to my TBR Mountain (and has been bumped up to the top). I have no doubt that I will love them all!

    Elizabeth Hart was outstanding with the delivery of the story.

    "WOW! This Book is Deep and Worth the Credit"

    I am not Catholic so I was not offended by the content some other may not take it as I did. I would never recommend a book that I didn't truly enjoy so I most definitely give this book my highest rating. I have not read any others in this series but now they are must haves because though it has a touchy subject matter the book kept me listening and on the edge of my seat down to the very last minute. I listened twice because I wasn't sure if I made some of the hot sexual depravity up in my mind. GIVE IT A TRY AND YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED!
