The Prince by Tiffany Reisz
Series: The Original Sinners #3
Published by MIRA on December 18, 2017
Two worlds of wealth and passion call to Nora Sutherlin and, whichever one she chooses, it will be the hardest decision she will ever have to make. Unless someone makes it for her…
Wes Railey is the object of Nora’s tamest yet most maddening fantasies, and the one man she can’t forget. He’s young. He’s wonderful. He’s also thoroughbred royalty and, reuniting with him in Kentucky, she’s in his world now. But this infamous New York dominatrix is no simpering Southern belle, and Nora’s dream of fitting into Wesley’s world is perpetually at odds with the relentlessly seductive pull of Søren—her owner, her lover, the forever she cannot have. At least, not completely.
Meanwhile Nora’s associate Kingsley Edge is only too happy to take her place at Søren’s feet during her hiatus. Søren is the only man Kingsley has ever loved, and their dark, shared history has forged a bond that neither the years—nor Søren’s love for Nora—can break. But a new threat from an old adversary is forcing Kingsley to confront the past, reminding him that he must keep his friends close, and his enemies closer.
Buy on AmazonThis series is such a thrilling ride. I have never read such well-written erotica before Tiffany Reisz. I know that I say it in every review, but her writing is like no other.
Like I mentioned in Slot Terbaru my review for The Angel, this series is not make up of standalones. You must read the other two books first. If you continue on with this review, you will be spoiled.
“I would have been an atheist but for you proving to me that both heaven and hell were real, even if they existed only when I was with you.”
The Prince was my most frustrating read of the series thus far. We follow three different timelines – Kingsley and Soren’s past, Kingsley and Soren’s present, and Wes and Nora’s present. I felt like I was being overloaded with failed relationship drama. We already knew that Kingsley and Soren didn’t work out. Leaving me ultimately unfulfilled with the their past timeline – at times. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that Wes and Nora are a ticking time bomb. While I am a fan of Wes’s character, Nora is not the woman for him. Talking about it all even makes me frustrated.
However, the actual plot of the book starts to pick up about halfway through the book. Kingsley and Soren are on the hunt to see if they can find out who stole Nora’s file. They had to go back to the Catholic all-boys school they attended when they were younger – thus FINALLY tying in their past stories.
I didn’t understand the importance of Wes and Nora’s timeline until that ending! This one does leave off on a cliffhanger which usually isn’t my favorite. Some authors do this as a ploy to force the reader to pick up the next book for some mediocre reveal. Leave it to Tiffany Reisz to do a cliffhanger the right way. . . and that’s all I can say without spoiling anything.
“In all things involving Nora Sutherlin, proceed with caution.”
I hated that The Prince started off on the wrong foot because the middle and the ending was superb. What I thought was going to be a three star book quickly turned into a 4.5 star. I should have never doubted TR.
I just wanted to take a moment to give a quick shout-out to my BR gals over on goodreads – Leila, Monique, Melanie, and Ursy. You girls are the best! xx
