Publisher's Summary

No safe word can protect the heart....

Infamous erotica author and accomplished dominatrix Nora Sutherlin is doing something utterly out of character: hiding. While her longtime lover, Søren - whose fetishes, if exposed, would be his ruin - is under scrutiny pending a major promotion, Nora's lying low and away from temptation in the lap of luxury.

Her host, the wealthy and uninhibited Griffin Fiske, is thrilled to have Nora stay at his country estate, especially once he meets her traveling companion. Young, inexperienced and angelically beautiful, Michael has become Nora's protégé, and this summer with Griffin is going to be his training, where the hazing never ends.

But while her flesh is willing, Nora's mind is wandering. To thoughts of Søren, her master, under investigation by a journalist with an ax to grind. And to another man from Nora's past, whose hold on her is less bruising, but whose secrets are no less painful. It's a summer that will prove the old adage: love hurts.

    "Sorry I can’t listen to the narrator for this one"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who does not mind the narrator’s voice not fitting the characters of Nora and Soren.


    What could Tiffany Reisz have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Picked another narrator! Sorry Lilly!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Lilly Rhodes?

    Jim Frangione and Jennifer Ikeda have done both genders better. I’m sure there are others.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    It was not the book itself!! I will read it and comment later but the narrator made me; how do I describe it? Shuddered, flinched. The feeling? How about; Not right, ugh, NOO, ill, turn it off. I know, Annoyed; like screeching on a chalk board for me. I’m sure the narrator is great for many other books but not this one.


    Any additional comments?

    I read Siren and liked it, not a romance in the sense I would place it but a good enough story that I wanted to read the series. I thought I would read some and listen to some but that is not going to happen and I used a credit. Geez, and to think this is my first review. I am really sorry, but I was compelled to comment. Save your credit and just read the hard copy on this one. At least don’t ignore the sample listening like I did; if it does not do it for you, your probably right and if it doesn’t then you’ll have no problem.

    I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.

    "Reisz Deserves Her Own Catagory"

    Yes, this is erotica. It is very hot. It is also edgy. Too much so for many people's taste. But the author has a very unique voice and for that alone she deserves to be heard. Her stories are larger than life. They almost remind me of the early Ann Rice books where the big questions and the important answers about life and death, philosophy, religion, good, evil, heaven and hell were all buried deep within an interesting story about a couple of vampires.

    It is truly difficult to describe her writing style, her characterizations, her plotting. But she has the ability to make you care a great deal for people that on paper you should find totally unlikable and nonredeemable. She reminds you that no one is exclusively good or totally evil. That everyone is flawed and sometimes those that are best at hiding their flaws are the most flawed of all. You know the world she has created exists solely in the pages of her books. And you know that if it really did exist you would likely never have the nerve to exist in it yourself. But it would be nice to know that it was out there, that Nora and Soren and Kingsley and Griffin exist and maybe someday you would gather your courage and ...

    I liked the first book in this series, but found this one far more satisfying. It focused far more on what I thought were the strongest characters from the first book and didn't waste time on the weaker characters

    "Very Very Good.........but......."

    First of all, I'm not one that likes when an author changes the narrator for each book in the series. Coming off The Siren which is narrated by a man that I found captivating and put a definite dark intense spin on the story; I was certainly surprised going into this book as the narrator is a woman.

    I do not want to take away from the narrator as she was very good, however, I had already pictured the characters in my mind a particular way through the voice impressions of the first book's narrator, so I felt that I was starting over with a new story.

    I found this book less dark and intense, maybe do to the new female narrator and her impressions. The story was very intriguing and gripping in a different manner than the first and found myself more in Soren's corner, probably because Nora is less frightened of him which took away the complete dark intensity of the first book.

    I am really finding it difficult to understand the attraction to Wesley....maybe the next book will shine some light.

    All in all, the series is very very good, but do be aware that this series may be controversial to many.

    "Buy this on Kindle"

    After Siren, I was really excited to read this next book. I purchased it right away, and then realized that the narration wasn't going to give me the satisfaction I desired.

    Particularly, Lilly Rhodes' interpretation of Soren is just sad. She makes him sound like an wizened old man instead of a strikingly handsome and intimidating 6'5 danish hunk priest with a whip fetish. I didn't like her Nora either -- too upbeat and cheery for the subject matter. All in all, she's a terrible fit for this kind of read.

    Get it on Kindle instead. I did, and I couldn't put it down.

    "Loving this series!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Angel the most enjoyable?

    Vocal tones.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    New character: Michael Dimir (aka Angel).


    Have you listened to any of Lilly Rhodes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Excellent


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

    Want a summer job?


    Any additional comments?

    The Angel is the second installment in Tiffany Reisz's dark erotica series titled: Original Sinners. While the first book was all about the heroine: Nora Sutherlin, this book offers multiple point-of-views, but the one that stands out as the focal point is a new character: Michael Dimir (aka Angel).

    In this installment, Ms. Reisz creates a storyline that allows readers to learn so much about the multiple main/side characters. While Nora remains my favorite among them all, she is written in a slightly different light in this book. She is immensely enjoying her sexuality during a summer assignment. Her orders are to relocate to Griffin's home for a few months and train the newest submissive: Michael (remember him?). I loved the way Nora's protectiveness shines during her time with this damaged young man. Even though Søren didn't join them, he is a focal point in a parallel storyline which allows readers to gain valuable insight into his past. Ms. Reisz ends The Angel on a tortuous cliffhanger that I CANNOT WAIT to continue! The Prince will be on my "read" list soon. So excited!!!

    My favorite quote:
    "Love is the open wound that you hope never heals."

    "Frustrating"

    I thought we had Soren and Nora finally figuring things out and now she wants to go back to Wesley for a romp. And Soren supposedly loves her enough to let her do this. At this point I feel like they should just admit to each other that they get bored and need diversions and quit declaring their love for each other. It's getting tough to buy. Lost my love for them as characters. Griffin and Michael are my favorite characters now.

    "Terrible Narrator"
    Would you listen to The Angel again? Why?

    NO, the narrator was just terrible. The Saint and The King were narrated by Elizabeth Hart and she did a fantastic job.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I can't pick just one. Eleanor, Søren and Kingsley were excellent. They are the Original Sinners.


    What three words best describe Lilly Rhodes’s performance?

    Ruined the audiobook.


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

    Don't know.


    Any additional comments?

    Continue the series using Elizabeth Hart as narrator. I purchase audiobooks for the narration and Elizabeth Hart is an automatic buy. I have purchased over 40 J.D. Robb books narrated by Susan Ericksen...the narrator can draw you in and keep you purchasing over and over.

    "The Angel"
    Where does The Angel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Hmm. Probably close to the bottom in narration and close to the top in storyline.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I feel a bit bad for being so critical of the narration but the voice that was used for Soren was nothing at all the way I imagine he would sound. It sounded like it belonged to an elderly man and really took away from the audio experience. I think that if a voice or accent can't be done properly then the narrator should just read the book as if telling a story and not try to use different voices for each character or only do the ones that they are able to do. I've listened to other audio books that have done this and they were excellent.

    "A Smart and Fun Read"

    This is a good read. Strong, smart characters and a good story line. Sometimes a book that has intense and graphic sex has no plot or true purpose. Not this book. I enjoyed listening from the beginning to the end.
