Review: The Angel by Tiffany Reisz (2012)

Original Sinners, Book 2

Review of Original Sinners, Book 1

Heat Factor: There is a lot of sex, between a bunch of different people (separately and together).

Character Chemistry: Everyone is beautiful, and everyone wants to get laid. 

Plot: There’s a submissive in training. There’s a priest under investigation. And there’s a writer trying to figure out the truth in her heart. 

Overall: There are a lot of dyads here, and while one couple does get a HEA, others do not. I would place this firmly in the category of erotica, rather than romance.

Overall: A porno in book form.
