Review: The Siren by Tiffany Reisz

There are a thousand reasons why this review *should be* biased. Tiffany is a twitter friend. I got the book from NetGalley for free. Tiffany is the Editor of Felt Tips, the anthology that my first published story is featured in. ( It's being released 12-12-12, BTW ;) )

So there are many many reasons to discount my opinion here.

But that doesn't matter. Because the book is very, very, very good.

BOB Blurb (stolen from Amazon) It's a man's world, but she's the one on top. 
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.

The thing about this book is, it's a loves story-- many loves, many kinds of loves. But it isn't a romance. Like the main character's anything but vanilla life, this story is amazingly beautiful in it's brutality. It is incredibly pretentious to say, but I see myself in Nora Sutherlin. 

Hopefully, I will have Tiffany round these parts so we can chat about the book, BDSM, D/s relationships and... stuff.
