The Priest
Advance Reading Copy , Erotica , Fiction / March 29, 2020

Three steps forward, two steps back. The Priest was on its way to be my favorite of Tiffany Reisz’s The Original Sinners series. The characters are starting anew in New Orleans after leaving New York City. The story opens with Soren gone, this is not unexpected to the regular reader, new readers might be puzzled. Nora has gained a dog and the pair seem to be thriving together, no small feat for a woman who never even wanted the responsibility of a plant. Kingsley and Juliette are close to the birth of child number two. And then the Priest is found dead. And then Nora is pulled into the mystery. Like I said, the Priest was on its way. I liked the new character of Cyrus, a local private detective, and I thought the mystery of what happened to Father Ike somewhat thin but still interesting. Eleanor is thirty-eight in this installment and is at her most likable. She seems to be past trying to seduce every guy who sparks her interest and she and Kingsley are supportive friends. She is helping paint the coming baby’s nursery, you’re welcome Juliette, and appears to be a doting aunt to little Celeste. …

The Rose by Tiffany Reisz
Advance Reading Copy , Erotica , Fiction / February 13, 2019

If you are a fan of Tiffany Reisz you might as well skip this review and go purchase The Rose.  I say this because I think this is one of the author’s best offerings. It is explicit, actually sometimes just a touch beyond explicit, if that’s even possible. Still, it is written as a combination of erotic fantasy and Greek mythology which is a perfect match.  The story begins with the characters of Lia and August “sparring” around a Greek cup called the Rose Kylix.  Lia has it, August wants it. And much sexiness follows. There is a bit of an “ick factor” in the plot, between Lia and her mother. Although this ick factor makes sense in the frame of Greek mythology, I would deduct one star in any rating … because…. ick!!!  I have to say that I think the author is full of talent for story telling and it amuses me to think that she decided to aim her ability in the direction of mythology, probably just because she could.

Picture Perfect Cowboy by Tiffany Reisz
Advance Reading Copy , Erotica , Romance / August 26, 2018

Looking for a quick, kinky love story where the man is the novice for once? Picture Perfect Cowboy is that story. Jason Waters, professional bull rider, (retired) is struggling with his desire to dominate women. It’s something he’s thought about in secret and explored only through the internet. After agreeing to be photographed for a calendar for literacy he meets pink-haired, sexy Simone, a sometimes photographer, sometimes professional submissive. Simone has no issues with her sexual desires and jumps at the chance to help him with his. And so the kink begins. In my opinion the story reads a bit too much like a non-fiction “how to” book. I’d title it “Dominance 101” or “So You’re Kinky, Now What?”  Chapter one would be all about how consenting adults can do whatever they want in the bedroom or playroom, or wherever there’s a spare riding crop or blindfold. This novel promotes that concept with a somewhat simplistic plot and likeable, although unmemorable, characters. That said, the author weaves a nice story that is more romance than erotica and given the price of $3.99 for the ebook on Amazon, perhaps we are getting about what is expected. Even at that low price, this reader would have liked more heart and confidence from Jason and less recitation from Simone. I received an ARC…

The Red: An Erotic Fantasy by Tiffany Reisz
Advance Reading Copy , Erotica , Fiction / June 10, 2017

Step to the line, then cross it. The Red, a work of erotic fantasy fiction, will take you, turn you, and flip you over. It is the story of Mona Lisa St James, who wants to save The Red, an art gallery, and Malcolm, who helps her. The story moves fast as Mona and Malcolm, and the reader, explore art, kinky sex, and mystery. The author’s writing gives us a likeable heroine, with natural dialogue, and exposure to some great works of art. Finally, the sex scenes are extra kinky, exactly the type of stuff readers of erotica will enjoy. Sidenote: This was an Advance Reading Copy
