"The Saint" by Tiffany Reisz



THE SAINT BY TIFFANY REISZ

SERIES: The Original Sinners #5
PUBLISHER: Mills & Boon
GENRE: Contemporary Erotica
SOURCE: Publisher
LINKS: Goodreads | Book Depository

SUMMARY
Rebellious Eleanor is 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 StearnsSøren to her and only her—is an epiphany. Eleanor is consumed—yet even she knows being in love with a priest can't be right. And then a whole world opens when Søren reveals to her his deepest secrets that will change everything.

MY REVIEW

It got me just one chapter to start panicking! I almost didn't want to keep reading, and that says a lot considering my love for this series. Go on, read the book and then tell me I overreacted. I bet you will hold your breath until the very last page...

After the initial panic attack—but not the last one—I was drawn into Nora's story and her very first encounter with Søren, and boy if I cracked up during the read! I simply loved the rebellious Eleanor, her theological discussions with her unique priest and how Tiffany Reisz beautifully portrayed their building relationship. You think you got everything sorted out after "The Mistress", but I can assure you here more pieces of the puzzle fits together and Kingsley proves once more to be the best sinner character ever! I just found myself having mixed feeling for Nico. I'm not sure about his interaction with Nora, which at times kinda bothered me. Then, I suppose I have to wait for the next book to come out and see if I'll change my mind. With a brilliant author such as Reisz, I wouldn't be surprised to see that happening.

A piece of advice to those new to the series, past and present are mixed here, so be sure to read the first four instalments in the series beforehand. It is essential to properly follow the present events, but even more so to fall for the characters and one of the most powerful stories ever told!

RATING: 4/5

  8. It's possibly the strongest, most fascinating and most mind blowing story I have ever read in this genre. I personally LOVE it, but I understand it's not for everyone. If you try it, I'll be curious to know what you think, Melliane.

  10. I'm glad you started the series, Lexxie! This is actually my first 4 rating for The Original Sinners, I gave a 5 to each previous instalment, but that of course doesn't mean this isn't another fantastic addition to the series. Anyway, my reviews don't contain any spoilers, ever. So feel free to read it, if you like :)

  13. I think I'm like the last one to have not read this series! I've had them on the tbr pile since the first came out and dang it was like there was a frenzy of them all the sudden. I'm so gonna have to find the time for them. Glad to hear the initial panic didn't end it for ya!

  14. I think you will never see me putting down an instalment of this series, Brandee. And I can't wait for you to meet Kingsley and see if you fall for him as much as I did!

  15. On the contrary, it put me on the edge and gave me the right adrenaline rush to keep going to find answers out... Nevertheless, I really put a hand on my mouth and almost screamed at the beginning, that was how big of a shock the start was for me! You gotta love Tiffany and her diabolical but brilliant mind, and rest assured that every book will give you the most unexpected and strongest of the emotions!

  17. I LOVE it, but you may need to get outside your comfortable zone, so I'm not sure this is a series for you, Chanzie.
