Description: 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.
REVIEW: There is a ton of things to say about this book, and I am going to start with OH MY GOD. The Price was exactly what I expected and more. The story was awesome. Tiffany Reisz gave us glimpses of the past, providing us with needed insight about the struggles that some of the characters went through and how those situations shaped them.
Though it is unusual for me to enjoy different plots in one book, Tiffany‘s The Prince brought us a more complex read this time around. The development in this book goes from Wesley and Nora to Kingsley and Søren. All those different perspectives and struggles made The Prince one of the kind read.
We start with the arrival of Nora to Kentucky and her reunion with Wesley. The relationship between these two is not only sweet, but raw and sexual. Their attraction goes beyond the need and hornyness of two very sexual yet new lovers. Their friendship strengthens their relationship and Wesley understanding of Nora is impressive. I like how Nora doesn’t fail to show Wesley how much she loves him, her declaration brought tears to my eyes and I can’t deny she made me laugh a lot more this time around. Wesley is such an adorable character; he is mature beyond his years. Nora is one of those complex characters that one can’t help but adore. Her straightforward ways made me want to be just like her, so secure and to the point, no holding back and not afraid of saying what’s in her mind. Wesley is the opposite yet those differences are exactly what bring them together. I can’t wait to see how much farther their relationship goes.
Soren’s love was like the sky – huge and ubiquitous, always there without fail. She no more expected his love to go away than she would ever imagine walking outside at night and seeing a void where the stars should be. But Wesley’s love …it seem so strange to her, so novel. Where had it come from? and why? She would understand the origin of the stars before she ever got why this beautiful , so sweet and pure, would love a woman like her.
Kingsley and Søren are extraordinaire; these two great yet complex characters are the main focus of the book. Reisz brings out all the raw emotions and need we knew existed in Kingsley character but that were never presented in such way. Thanks to the switching from past to present we are able to see how their relationship started and what brought them together as well as what separated them. I was so busy with those two characters that I found myself turning pages just to see what was going to happen next. There is a major event in this book that will make readers bite their nails. The drama and suspense as well as the mystery behind that person who stole Nora’s file is nerve wracking. The past has certainly made an appearance in this book and not in a good way.
Once, when Kingsley had been brave enough to ask why Soren made time for him, he had responded, “I don’t make time for your, Kingsley. I make it for myself.”
The encounters between Søren & Kingsley were hot, painful and passionate all at the same time. Their relationship was troubled and though there was love, it always came in the form of a beating. It is quite difficult to associate one with the other but Tiffany was able to showed us a Søren we haven’t see in previous books. Their relationship started while both were only kids, but each knew what it meant for them to be involved, what it entailed and what was expected. The devotion, the love and understanding brought them together while the complexity of the relationship and its consequences brought them apart.
“What are you playing for, mom ami?” Kingsley had asked. “What I’ve been praying for every day since I met you,” Stearns said, twisting the beads around his hand.
“And what is that?”
Stearns opened his hand to display the rosary beads he’d weaved between his fingers like a spiderweb.
Kingsley is one of the hottest characters in this series and though I am fond of Wesley I have to say I am focusing all my energy on Kingsley. He is undeniably the hottest character in this book, aside from Søren of course. I love this book and I can’t help it. The characters, the plot and the events that unfold made The Prince one of the hottest Erotica books I read this year. Tiffany Reisz has a knack for writing exciting character while maintaining brilliant and entertaining plot. She brings characters to life with her witty and unrepentant way of storytelling. The Prince is naughty, sinful and extremely sexy. I feel dirty after reading it, but as every sinner I like it. If you have the urge of confessing after reading The Prince, don’t feel bad, you aren’t alone. Father, forgive me for I am a Sinner.!
Do I recommend this book? Heck Yeah!
