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.

✫✫ 5 Stars ✫✫

I love this series!!! I don't know how many times I've read it but i'm currently doing a full re-listen. I love Nora & Soren the most but I really enjoyed Michael & Griffin's story too. I think one of my favorite things about the series is its no apologetic, they like what they like, they love who they love and it doesn't matter what everyone else thinks. The honestly between all of these characters is a huge thing for me, there isn't any immature drama or misunderstanding because they didn't talk. These characters talk about everything! These book can been very raunchy in the sex scenes and man the talking about sex alone is hot. This entire series is so much more than just the taboo story line but I gotta say I love the priest the most!!!

The narration..... sorry but it is completely wrong. The narrators for each book does not fit the characters at all. I don't know who chose the narrators but they might need to listen to audiobooks to get an idea of what a great narrator and great casting choice can do for a book. Thank god I already read these because I know I would have stopped and moved on to something else if I was just listening to the first time.

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.

The Angel isn't so innocent.

As I suspected book 2 was even better than the first book. I swear Michael and Griffin and Nora are H – E – L – L on wheels. They are smoking hot together.

But it really wouldn’t be possible if it was for Soren and his ways. I love that he has his hand in it all. He and Nora’s relationship still confuses me a little and I am sure as the series goes on I will understand more.

Michael is the sweetest and most in pain teenager I wanted to hug the guy. I love how he opens up to Nora and how Nora encourages him to open up to Griffin because their friendship really blossoms and you can see that it is helping them both. I am so, so, freaking happy how this book turns out and all the twists and turns.

The reporter was getting on my nerves but I see now why she was necessary.

The narration was better than the first, but still, something was off. Again not terrible just not what I was expecting.

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.

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.

M/M Romance...

Would you consider the audio edition of The Angel to be better than the print version?

Yes. Audio gives the characters personality.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I love this series. Even though there are some very kinky things going on, the relationship between the characters is awesome. It almost makes you think the story could be true. This book does have some graphic M/M sex scenes that I am not comfortable with. I skipped over those parts which was kind of irritating.

What does Lilly Rhodes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Everything! I could tell who was talking and when. They had emotions, it sounded natural and not faked. She did very good job!

Any additional comments?

If you can get past the M/M the story is great. Obviously, I just skipped over those parts instead of giving up on the book all together. Start the series and read in order. The development is incredible you won't be disappointed.

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.

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

Read this book, don't listen

While this is my favorite Red years story of the series, I'm very disappointed 😞 with the reader.

sometimes I have to wonder...

don't get me wrong, I love this series and totally recommend it. I actually think it's one of my favorite series that I've ever listened to. I liked book one but compared to 2 and 3 it was not nearly as exciting. but when it did have was a lot better narrator. so I guess you get one or the other witch kind of sucks. I guess this is life. My problem is that I listen to it on audible and I hate the narrator in comparison to book one. do you guys put cotton in your earsif it's a price thing then you should pay the difference. if it's the time management thing then spend a little extra time and find somebody better. trust me it makes a difference. Brooklyn hard people this is a big deal. I need a sexy voice with my sexy ebooks. quit ruining my sexy time. I need texting is. get it help me with my sexy time. I want sexy time. help me!!! do I have to keep continuing?
