~Review: The Saint by Tiffany Reisz~

The Saint by Tiffany Reisz
Release date: June 24th
Before she became Manhattan's most famous dominatrix, Nora Sutherlin was merely a girl called Eleanor…
Rebellious, green-eyed Eleanor never met a rule she didn't want to break. She's sick of her mother's zealotry and the confines of Catholic school, and declares she'll never go to church again. But her first glimpse of beautiful, magnetic Father Marcus Stearns—Søren to her and only her—and his lust-worthy Italian motorcycle is an epiphany. Eleanor is consumed—yet even she knows being in love with a priest can't be right.
But when one desperate mistake nearly costs Eleanor everything, it is Søren who steps in to save her. When she vows to repay him with complete obedience, a whole world opens before her as he reveals to her his deepest secrets that will change everything.
Danger can be managed—pain, welcomed. Everything is about to begin.
About The Author:
Tiffany Reisz is the author of the highly acclaimed series The Original Sinners. Her first novel, THE SIREN, won the RT Editor's Choice Award for Best Erotic Romance of 2012. Slightly shameless, Tiffany dropped out of a conservative Southern seminary in order to pursue a career as a writer. This move, while possibly putting her eternal salvation in peril, has worked out better than she anticipated. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her boyfriend, author Andrew Shaffer.

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

When fifteen year old Eleanor Schreiber meets Marcus Sterns for the first time a bond is formed that will last through out both their lives.  Nora was raised in the Catholic Church and attended a Catholic School.  That is where she meets a priest named Soren and he changed her life forever.  Her father was a car thief and wandered in and out of her life so when she was arrested for car thief it is Soren that arrives at the police station to help her.  This is the place where Nora promises Soren that she will do what he tells her to do from now on and he will get out of trouble with the police.   
“I’m yours, Soren,” she said to no one but God, and didn’t know what she meant by it.  She only knew it was true.  She was his whatever the consequences.  She was his. Amen. Amen.  So be it.
This begins a convoluted relationship that spans several decades.   The relationship includes another man named Kinsley, alone with Soren and Eleanor.   The story is told by Nora to Kinsley’s son Nico who had followed her into the Black Forest of Bavaria.  Nora explains how their lives had intersected and overlapped through the years and her journey to sexual awareness.

Would I recommend this book: Yes! This is the story of a woman that overcomes all obstacles to find out who she really is.  It tells how events put her on the different paths that she would take and the men that would walk with her in love, lust and infamy. 

Would I read other books by this author: Yes! This author writes for the hardcore reader that is into domination and submission.
