Book summary

 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.

My Thoughts:

The Siren is not your typical romance story. When I started reading this book, I thought it would be like every other story, boy meets girl, boy and girl tortured by their past, they overcome and live happy ever after.

It wasn't. It was a story so entirely different from anything I have ever read. And I loved it.

The characters weren't perfect. Infact, I loved just how imperfect they were, full of flaws. Couldn't help but fall in love - even those that scared me to pieces. Believe me there were. One especially.

The story: Ah, the story. 

Ms Reisz wrote a story so emotional. It breaks your heart at the same time mends it, fulfilling it at the same time feeling as if something is missing. It's been a while since I read writing so beautiful, some of her sentences, her words, I read them twice, thrice. If it was possible, I would glue them in my brain and staple or sew them shut just so they could stay locked in there.

I look forward to reading the second book in this series.
