Review: The Prince by Tiffany Reisz

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.

Avery’s Thoughts About the Book

Review Tagline

The Siren told the story of Nora and Zachary, Nora and Wesley, Nora and Søren, Nora and riding crops.

The Angel told MORE of the story of Nora and Søren, a little more Nora and Wesley, Nora and Michael, Nora and Griffin and the best story of all, Griffin and Michael.

The Prince takes us on a bit of a different story. We still have Nora and lots of her. We get to learn more of the Nora/Søren backstory and why it is that she loves him so much. We also have Nora and Wesley, which up to this point has been a hot mess of emotion. Where she’s a pro in brutality and kink, Nora is very much a virgin in the vanilla sex, vanilla relationship, vanilla ANYTHING arena. Wesley is the one man on this planet that makes her genuinely NERVOUS! It’s kind of fun to watch her squirm a bit and get weird with the mushy gushy stuff.

The other half of this book is one that I really did not see coming and the story is just mind-blowing: Søren and KINGSLEY. I know it was mentioned in the past that Søren and Kingsley had been known to share a bed and it may have even been mentioned that they were actually lovers. I knew they were or at least I assumed they were.

Well, The Prince tells the story of how Søren and Kingsley came to be as well. It. Is. HEARTBREAKING. There are some very sweet moments and there are also some very painful moments. Their story is intense and really horrible to witness but no matter how bad it makes you want to cry, you just can’t stop reading.

Amidst all of these books is a story arc that has profound consequences. Some very sensitive files are stolen from Kingsley’s townhouse and the potential badness those files could cause goes in several different directions. At the end of The Prince, you find out just how big this story arc really is and it’s a little terrifying. I am DYING to find out what happens next!!!!!

This book also left off with something said that will leave you completely slack-jawed. A question and an answer you would never thought you would EVER READ in one of these books. I am also DYING to find out what the hell happens with that!!!

On a side note, as with the other books in this series, I listened to the unabridged audiobook. The first and second books were phenomenal. The Prince?? Not so much. I have a GPS in my car. I named said GPS Lola. Does everyone remember that song?? Lol Anyway, the woman reading this book sounds JUST LIKE LOLA! A computer voice. Hard core. I mean, it sounds enough like a computer that at thirty-eight minutes into the audiobook, I went back to the beginning and listened to the credits to see if they even named a narrator or if it really was a computer reading the book. Well, it is an actual woman and I can’t imagine having to listen to that voice every day. However, it should tell you how much I love this series that I suffered through it just so I could “read” The Prince while I was working. I would love to have heard The Prince read by the woman who narrated The Angel. She was amazing.

Such an awesome book and such an amazing addition to the series!!!!
