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.

*This novel was received by the publisher in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts:

Okay. Wow! I honestly have to say that I have never really read a novel like The Siren before. Tiffany Reisz has definitely got my attention. I can not stop thinking of this story full of love, heartache, pleasure, pain, good, bad, and oh so much more. Reisz has created a world that is so realistic but one that is also kept in the shadows, one that will peek your interests and crawl into your dreams at night. Every one of the characters are built to perfection and will make a outstanding impression in your mind. I felt as though I've met some of these people..., actually spent time with them, rather than just read about them in a fiction novel. 

Nora, the young, beautiful and mysterious main character is truly smitten by most men she comes in contact with. However, it becomes a whole new ballgame when she meets Zach Easton, the new editor for her upcoming novel. Nora and Zach spend time together working on her book and get to know each other while doing so. However, Zach isn't prepared to let Nora see or know everything about himself, as he has kept reserved, kept the most important part of himself locked away because it hurts too bad to reveal. Nora intends to learn the truth about Zach and his dark past and will do whatever is necessary to do so.

There is also the Nora's young  live-in Intern, Wesley. He is absolutely beautiful, intelligent and kind. He is and has been the one constant good relationship in Nora's life since she left her ex-lover, Soren. Soren is a powerful man whom Nora still deeply loves very much and we will learn her reasons for why she can't be with him.  

Watching Nora lead her life in the Underground is amazing. Learning about the world of BDSM and the rules that go along with it is nothing short of phenomenal. I couldn't stop from turning the pages. I wanted more. This book is not just about sex. This book is about love and respect. Learning the boundaries of your body and soul. Facing your fears and being yourself. You will most definitely feel strongly for these characters and love each of their relationships. In my opinion this was an amazing story and I'm so happy that it's not over. I can't wait to jump back into Nora's world. The Siren is a must read for sure. 


  1. Thank you both. I hope you enjoyed the review and will check out Tiffany's books. You won't regret it. I promise!

  2. I only read one story by this author, and it was somehow a little weird (The type of story alone was very different from this. It was narrated by a guy who told his friends about mermaid-dancers.. I still am not certain whether or not the term "mermaid" was just an euphemism for something that I might be too innocent and young to understand. *g) But from what I can tell, this one seems way better. Damn.. Will need to read it. All your fault!

    1. I think you will really like the series. The mermaid story is the only one that I haven't read. There are a ton of other short stories that tie in with the series. Most of them are free on Tiff's website. You should totally check them out! <3

  3. Debbie loved this book as well. I keep seeing it every where. I think I will have to give it a shot! lol
