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.

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.

Wonderful story with great narration.

I had a friend gift me an ebook copy of The Siren. Because my schedule is so hectic, I bought it on Audible. She said I’d love it. She told me it was taboo. She knows me well. Taboo she said, well that was one of the best parts. At one point while driving down the road, it came to the point in the story when the reader is clued into who Soren is and let me tell you, I was screaming at my phone (that is the device I use for Audible). I was in shock. Wonderful, mind blowing shock at the plot twist in this story.

The narrator took some getting used to, and the tense that the story was written in isn’t my favorite. Yet it all worked out amazingly. The narrator grew on me and I loved the many accents he had. And the third person almost read like a television show. I could see the characters and environment that they were in.

As far as BDSM books go, this has to be one of my favorites. Nora’s story is heartbreaking. I fell in love with all of them. Soren, Zack, Wesley, they all have their little kinks and I loved them all. If you are expecting hearts and flowers with a lovely ending, you are in for some disappointment. This is a forbidden love story and each of the stories within the story have an ending, it just may not be what you expect. Thankfully the series goes on and maybe I’ll get the ending I want. Great Story Ms Reisz. I am now and will forever be a huge fan.

The Good Siren

This was a good book. I don't know why I waited so long to read this book I have had this book on kindle for over a year. Nora Sutherlin is a famous erotic writer she is also a famous Domme. Zachary Easton is known as "The London Fog" holds her latest manuscript in his hand Zach is very demanding and he has only agreed to become her editor on one condition that he has complete control over it. Zachary is still mourning the loss of his marriage, trying to stop the hoping that his wife may come back to him. Nora has to rewrite the whole book in six weeks. This was a really good book it was not by no means romance it. Zach to me at times was so stuck up that I wanted to slap him. The sex scenes in this book was hot and Soren at first I didn't think I would like him I mean a priest that was a Dom, but I can't wait until I read more about him and Nora's relationship. Nora's relationship with each of the men in this book was somewhat Kingsley who was the king of kink he was the one that helped Nora when she had nothing and the one that turned her into a Domme after she left Soren. Wes who was her house guest and assistant who was in love with Nora and a virgin at nineteen she really liked him. I really think that Soren really loves her and she him, but she knows that they can't be together. The book did have one taboo that I know isn't for everyone. This book was very well written with no errors in grammar or spelling as I read and listened to this book at the same time. I am really looking forward to reading the next book in this series. This really was a good book
