ARC Review: The Confessions by Tiffany Reisz

15 Mar 2016

Book Title: The Confessions
Author: Tiffany Reisz
Series: The Original Sinners Novella
Release Date: March 15th, 2016
Genres: Erotica, BDSM
Three Sinners. Three confessions. And all the dirty little secrets you could possibly desire...

Father Stuart Ballard has been Marcus Stearns' confessor since the young Jesuit was only eighteen years old. He thought he'd heard every sin the boy had to confess until Marcus uttered those three fateful words: "I met Eleanor."

So begins the 40-page "The Confession of Marcus Stearns," a moving coda to the RITA Award-winning Original Sinners series. Originally published as a limited-edition paperback for the 2014 RT Booklovers' Convention, and available worldwide for the first time.

This collection also includes "The Confession of Eleanor Schreiber," a companion 36-page story written exclusively for The Confessions.

And, finally, all secrets are revealed in "The Confession of Tiffany Reisz," an exclusive, in-depth interview.

Let's face it, anyone whose experienced The Original Sinners by the hands of our dear Mistress Tiffany refuses to see her retire this crew. I mean, come on. This is, bar none, my favorite series of all time. It's kinky, endearing, naughty and so so very taboo. I cannot read a book within this series without a constant grin on my face. This book did not break that record...

So we get The Confessions of our dearest sadist priest, Father Marcus Stearns. Can I say I've never been to reconciliation with an old priest as cool as Father Ballard? He was a hoot! Why oh why can't they all be that non-stuffy awesome? I guess hearing the confessions of a sadist priest in love with his 16-year old parishioner would require a bit of...easy going, non-judgemental nature. But I digress...

And then we get The Confessions of Eleanor Shriber. I wonder which put the gray in his hair more? This confession was comic relief in itself...

The Confessions is meant to be read AFTER The White Years series as Marcus' confession occurs when he first meets Eleanor back when he was a new priest. The Eleanor confession occurs more current day. So don't ruin it for yourself. Finish the series in all its awesomeness. Tiffany Reisz will not fail you. Not once.

I could quote this whole book. There's a direct correlation between when I strart my teasers and quality thereof and the love I have for a book. I wasn't even halfway through and I was prepping to shout this book's awesomeness from the rooftops! Well done, and thank you, Mistress, for listening to your Little Ones readers and publishing these two short stories! Bravo.

And just one more quote...

"Do you take the Lord's name in vain?" 

"I'm Catholic. Of course I do, God dammit."

Touché. Love it!

Tiffany Reisz

Tiffany Reisz lives in Portland, Oregon with her boyfriend (a reformed book reviewer) and two cats (one good, one evil). She graduated with a B.A. in English from Centre College in Danville, Kentucky and is making both her parents and her professors proud by writing BDSM erotica under her real name. 

When not under arrest, Tiffany enjoys Latin Dance, Latin Men, and Latin Verbs. She dropped out of a conservative southern seminary in order to pursue her dream of becoming a smut peddler. Johnny Depp’s aunt was her fourth grade teacher. Her first full-length novel THE SIREN was inspired by a desire to tie up actor Jason Isaacs (on paper). She hopes someday life will imitate art (in bed). 

THE SIREN was awarded the RT Reviewer's Choice Award for Best Erotic Romance 2012. 

If she couldn’t write, she would die.
