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.

couldn't listen

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I didn't get far enough to rate the writing or story. The narrator didn't fit the story line. She was so flat and unbelievable that I couldn't get past the first 15 minutes. I tried but just couldn't continue listening.

Would you ever listen to anything by Tiffany Reisz again?

She might be okay for a different genre but she didn't fit this one.

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

Shayna Thibodeaux ;

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Couldn't get past the first 15 minutes.

Any additional comments?

Frustrated with a waste of a credit.

Loving this series!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would absolutely recommend this series and audiobook to a friend as long as I was sure they were fine with BDSM based books and multiple sexual preferences.

What did you like best about this story?

I love how Michael was described. A lot of authors shy away from characters who have attempted suicide - it was portrayed very well.

I didn't think I would enjoy this

I obviously discounted the storytelling power of Ms. Reisz. Another amazing installment. Reisz is amazing. She writes literate, fascinating erotica with something for everyone. There are no cardboard secondary characters: Everyone has a story, and she draws you into the world so subtly that you only realize you're in love once the book is over. Buy it, you won't regret it.

Not too bad of a sequel.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would only if they enjoyed the first book as much.

What did you like best about this story?

There is a lot of character development. And there has some unpredictable twists.

LOVE NORA!!!!!!!!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. I loved the first and loved the second cannot wait to listen to the third. The characters are very interesting, the storyline is great and though explicit it is written in a respectable manner. I was saddened by Nora and Zach in the first book but she survived and is very happy in this book.

What other book might you compare The Angel to and why?

Similar content to other s&m books but more realistic and dare I say classier....

Which character – as performed by Lilly Rhodes – was your favorite?

I just love Nora, she's the best....She is not afraid of who she is or what she is...she is very brave. I did not like the narrator's performance of Griffin, he should have sounded sexier, that is how I pictured him, otherwise she did a good job considering this is a different narrator from book 1.

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

I was torn by Soren's decision in the end, even though they can't have it all, I am beginning to love them as a couple. They belong together.

Love This Series

Oh. My. God. I just love Tiffany Reisz. This book was WONDERFUL. I love all the characters, though Soren still scares the crap out of me. This book is extremely intense and is probably too much for some people. Tiffany is the biggest mind f*ck ever. Just when I think I know what is going on, she throws something at me.

The audiobook was done very well. I had read the book previously, which I do a lot. The narrator does a great job.

Totally enjoyed this book!

I love this series. Tiffany Reisz's characters are all very real, flawed and relatable. Her characters are multi- layered and find their way into your heart.

It just keeps getting better and better!

If you could sum up The Angel in three words, what would they be?

Sinful, sexy and enticing.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Oooooh...this is a toughie. I'll have to go with Michael. He didn't have the biggest role but I found his character to be very endearing.

What three words best describe Lilly Rhodes’s performance?

I've heard better but I've heard much worse. Her voice lacked sophistication but she got the point across.

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

Yes, I listened to it every chance I got.

Any additional comments?

Once again, if you loved the 50 Shades series or Sylvia Day's Crossfire series you're in for a real treat. Tiffany brings erotica to a whole new level combining intriguing story telling with sex appeal.

Wow! Can this series get any better?

This is a great listen. Parts of the story will make you squirm in your seat (or bed), but that just makes it better. Different narrator than the first book. Took me less than 5 minutes to get use to the new voice. Both books in the series will take you away, making is hard to turn them off. Both narrators were great.

ALMOST AS AMAZING AS SIREN

What did you love best about The Angel?

The relationship between Griffin & Michael; Soren's cunning throughout the entire story. I grew to admire and love Soren much more in this book.

What did you like best about this story?

The twists and turns; the fact that Soren's and Nora's relationship kept me on the edge as well as Suzanne's involvement and investigation. The end was amazing.

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

No. I think it was a bad decision to change from Aeron James to Miss Rhodes. Aeron, I think, did a much better job with the male voices, especially Soren's. I really got used to his narration in Siren and it was difficult to hear the changed voices - it was like the people had changed, at first.

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

Both. I was kept on the edge of my seat.

Any additional comments?

Would like to see more from this autho. Would like a better match, however, between author and narrator.
