Publisher's Summary

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

Zachary Easton holds Nora's fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding 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.

    "I'm returning it"

    A word of warning, I didn't finish the book, I called it quits after 5 hours, just not my kind of book. Without having my review pulled for spoilers let me explain. There was no love story, I like listening to romance. There were no steamy scenes in 5 hours, I like steamy scenes. And while I have no problem with the idea of Doms or subs or even willing collared slaves I take great exception to the hardcore S and M in this book. Apparently in this context S and M basically means torture, violence, beatings without pleasure, zero sub care oh and the "training" started when the female lead was a teen and the Dom was 30 something. This didn't read like a loving empowering relationship it read like a man who likes to beat a woman until she can't stand and only then have sex with her and then he is done.

    I'm sure there are relationships out there like this, but I don't see the point in it, it's just damaged people damaging each other more. Nothing sweet about it, not even drawing a bath for the sub that was just beaten...I don't like the book and feel no compulsion to finish it.

    "Too much hype, don't waste a credit"
    What would have made The Siren better?

    Characters you could CARE about. They were so bland! How is that even possible when its an erotica writer and her publisher?


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Hopefully something good. I got a lot of 2 for a credit books and so far I have liked one of them. Anything Kresley Cole or Joey W Hill I will purchase and love.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I think the narrator did as good a job as he could with the source material. His female voices were a bit obnoxious to listen to.


    What character would you cut from The Siren?

    The whole book needed a rewrite.


    Any additional comments?

    I disliked this book I almost got a refund. If I hadn't gotten it and another for 1 credit I would have, It had so many good reviews. What a disappointment.

    I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and/or listening to mostly paranormal and fantasy.

    "Love this Book"

    Wow, I'm about half way through this book. I can balerly put it down. But I have to get some sleep.

    I read this book based on this review by Mandi. I was very intrigued and decided that I had to read it. I am extremely glad I did. This is a phenomenal story. I love the characters, they are extremely deep. I worry about all the characters. It seems that there will not be a happy ending, but I cannot imagine the story ending any other way.

    I will say that I am terrified of Soren. But I'm also very curious about him. I hope we get to learn more about him in The Angel.

    -------

    I love this book. I'm now listening to audiobook. I'm a little over an hour in. I love Nora.

    Just finished the audiobook. I should've waited until closer to when The Angel comes out. Now I have to wait impatiently. Love this book.

    "The unicorn of BDSM books; sexy and good writing"

    I am only rating this book a 4 because of the narrator (he was not the best...sorry Mr. James, I mean no harm). Otherwise, it would have been a 5. It was a really well-written book. This is particularly unusual in this genre. I was educated, amused, entertained, amongst other things ;-). Someone described this book as BDSM with a soul and I whole-heartedly agree. I liked the surprises this book had in store for the listener. I liked relationships the main character had with the men in her life. I knew all of them had their flaws but they all stimulated something that needed to be tended to. I have no interest in BDSM other than it's certainly an interesting proclivity. But the writer slowly unfolded the story in a way that at some point I realized I had developed some real understanding and acceptance of Nora's life.

    "Intense!"

    This was deep, moving and intense. The sex was... crazy. This is probably the darkest book I've read in the category and truly, it helped give me a true understanding of what this type of relationship actually entails. Wow! I loved the story and was totally entranced.

    Even if I can't relate to the sexual preference/lifestyle, it was very seducing and alluring. I will be reading more by this author!!!

    "Wish the performer was different"
    If you could sum up The Siren in three words, what would they be?

    Love these stories. They need to keep the same narrator. Changes the tone to much by changing the performer


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nora


    Would you be willing to try another one of Aeron James’s performances?

    Yes, don't like her in this genre

    "Not your typical Erotic Romance"

    For lovers of literature/writing. With a splash of bdsm. Slow at times, but overall enjoyable.

    "Flawed, but compelling"

    I'm not madly in love with this series, but apparently liked the first volume enough to purchase the audiobook even after finishing the text version. It's not a particulary nice story, or a realistic one, but the characters are messed up in just the way that makes them somehow humanly compelling all the same - and, compared to what else is currently being published under the erotic romance and erotica labels, it's not a badly written story.

    Mr. James's narration may help it, though. His main failure is with some of the accents (and he really needs to brush up his Danish), but he still manages to bring the characters' personalities to life quite beautifully. There's also a nice rhythm to his narration that, I think, overall got the mood of the scenes well and was easy to fall into. And for those discouraged by the mentions of annoying or weird female voices: well, I think the female characters themselves tend toward the weird and/or annoying, so it's really surprisingly fitting and, for the most part, not that bad after you get used to it.

    Go give it a shake! Just please don't go around pronouncing Søren's name like it's done here. ;-)

    "This book just did it for me!"
    Would you listen to The Siren again? Why?

    The Siren is the first installment in Tiffany Reisz's dark erotica series titled: Original Sinners. This book just did it for me. I've always been a sucker for ass-kicking women in fiction, but that has historically been limited to the fantasy genres. But holy cow, Ms. Reisz created a mostly-contemporary heroine that just blew me away.

    Nora Sutherlin is like two women in one...and they're both amazing! One is dominant, merciless, strong, successful, self-assured, and basically worshiped. The other is incredibly vulnerable, submissive, protective, troubled, and a bit unconfident actually. However, they both are sexy as hell and incredibly likable.

    As noted in many of my reviews, erotica is not a genre I typically enjoy due to the typical "just enough story to justify the next sex scene" writing style of the particular authors I have read in the past. But Ms. Reisz keeps a quality storyline flowing and incorporates endings that have readers scrambling for the next book. The characters are layered and the relationships are incredibly complex - when you've got some strong BDSM factors going on then they have to be or it just won't work. I am a newfound fan of Tiffany Reisz and can't wait to read the rest of this series!!!


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

    My favorite quote:
    "The same wind that blows us off course can turn and carry us home."


    What about Aeron James’s performance did you like?

    Love the tone.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    "A surprising book"
    Where does The Siren rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really didn't think this book would be special at all. I finished listening to it today and ended up really liking the book. It does have BDSM but ultimately it's about peoples nature and coming to grips with who you are and accepting that without destroying others.
