    If you're a fan of 'The Original Sinners' series, then you won't want to miss this one. No, it isn't another full-length book, so don't get your hopes up too high. It is a quickie novella that can be read in a single sitting, detailing two confessions made years apart. Honestly, at this point, I'd take any scrap that Ms. Reisz is willing to throw my way. I just can't let go of Soren and Nora. I love this story and the colorful characters that Ms. Reisz has created.

I just can't let go of Soren and Nora. I love this story and the colorful characters that Ms. Reisz has created. So, I happily paid the $2.99 on Amazon.com for what was essentially 2 chapters and a few extras, like an interview with the author. I'd do it again in a heartbeat! Both confessions were heard by Father Stuart Ballard, Soren's long-time mentor. One confession was Soren's, made soon after he met Nora. It shed some light on his mindset and how conscious he was of his actions where Nora was concerned. The second confession was Nora's, made years later. She had promised her mother that she would confess her sins to a priest other than Soren and was making good on that promise. Not feeling the slightest bit guilty or repentant for her relationship with Soren, her meeting with Father Ballard takes an interesting turn in direction. Personally, I was glad to hear Nora voice some of the concerns/feelings/jealousies that she did. I felt some of the same things while reading the books in the series and I couldn't believe how "okay" she was with some of the events that transpired. I was glad to see that she was human after all. There were several times reading this when I found myself laughing my ass off. I have to say that if Father Ballard was hanging around my church in my youth I might have kept up attendance in adulthood. He was a fantastic character with a robust sense of humor and a way of cutting through the BS. I absolutely adored him! Overall, this was another fantastic addition to the series. If you're looking for a quick Soren and Nora fix, this will hold you over. If you're hoping for another full-length book to add to this saga, you won't find it here.

This short story includes three confessions: Søren’s Confession: ”Forgive me, Father for I have sinned. It has been six months since my last confession.” “What happened six months ago?” “I met Eleanor.” Nora’s Confession: ”I can’t tell Kingsley because Søren wouldn’t want me to tell him about this particular situation. I can’t tell Zach because it’s about his wife, and I can’t tell Nico because I keep my relationship with him separate from my relationship with Søren and vice versa. I need a new him to talk to. So… you’re him.” “You have as many hims as a hymnal.” “You’re telling me father.” Tiffany Reisz’s Confession: ”If I were as sexy as Nora Id’ never get any work done.” The confessions of Søren and Nora are given to a wonderful priest, named Father Ballard. While the author’s Tiffany Reisz’s is given to a reviewer, Cyndy Aleo. I’ve been anxiously awaiting this book to become available publicly. This book is intelligent, witty, and does add to the story and to my love for these characters and the author. ”That’s the simple life. It’s simple until you show up and start using it.”

    4 short sinners stars Love is never a sin. If its a sin its not love. And if its love its not a sin. The Confessions is a short look into three separate confessions, Soren, Nora and Tiffany. Father Marcus has his hands full and I wish that all Priests would be as open and non-judgemental. It was cute and quirky and completely them. It offered us a peek into another facet of their being. A short gift of a read for us Original Sinner fans. The sin itself carries its own penance. 4 short sinners stars Love is never a sin. If it’s a sin it’s not love. And if it’s love it’s not a sin.

Firstly, if you love erotica, you HAVE TO READ THESE BOOKS! It's unlike anything you've read before with taboos, secrets and wildly passionate encounters! And secondly, because this is not a standalone. The first story is the Confession of Marcus Stearns. Again, I'll pause here because I simply can't pass up the chance to say that I am truly, deeply, madly in love with Søren! He seeks his mentor, Father Stuart Ballard, shortly after his first time meeting Nora. The next short is The Confession of Eleanor Schreiber – Nora. She too visits Father Ballard who is now much older at the age of 81. Both stories are told from Father Ballard’s POV and in each, a confession is made. These meetings and conversations were fascinating and provocative. Father Ballard was an interesting character. In true Tiffany fashion, she had me intrigued and wanting to know more about this priest and what his story was. At the end of this book, there's a treat with a short interview with the mistress herself, Tiffany Reisz! If you’re a fan of the Original Sinners, you're not going to want to miss out on this! **ARC generously provided by author in exchange for an honest review.** For more reviews and blog posts.

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! ***As a side note- this book essentially ends at 65%. The last third is an interview with Tiffany Reisz and a blogger. Though it was great to get some answers I've always wondered about from the great mind behind The Original Sinners, you should know the book concludes early. Advanced copy received by author in exchange for my honest review.

I am so excited that Tiffany Reisz released Søren’s confession to the masses!! In The Confessions, we are gifted with two short stories and an author confession/interview. The Confession of Marcus Sterns “What happened six months ago? I met Eleanor.” The timeline in this story takes readers back to when Søren first meets Eleanor. Being Søren’s primary confessor, Father Stuart Ballard, is no stranger to Søren’s past and his sadistic needs but he listens intently and offers his sincerest counsel. The friendship between Søren and Father Ballard is genuine and endearing. “She…she makes me laugh. I feel human with her. I don’t feel human very often, but I do with her. When Søren confesses his love for Eleanor, Father Ballard advises as only he knows how, and to hear their words, knowing what the future holds for Søren, Nora and Kingsley, is so impactful. At times, I felt like I was eavesdropping and I loved every damn minute! The Confession of Eleanor Schreiber “No flirting wicked girl. I know I’m you’re type.” “I can’t help it,” she said. “I spread for Roman collars.” Nora’s confession occurs much closer to the present when she and Father Ballard meet in person for the first time. As coincidence would have it, it doesn’t take Father Ballard to identify Nora! What is revealed during Nora’s confession surprised me yet in some ways it wasn’t completely unexpected. Some of the missing pieces definitely came together in this deep and self-searching confession. “You ought to cane him. I hear you’re good at it. The best in the business.” Breaking up the levity is Father Ballard’s wonderful sense of humor and Nora’s unfiltered thought to speech. I could listen to Nora in my head all day! The Confession of Tiffany Reisz This bonus is an interview with Tiffany discussing all things about our favorite Original Sinners. It was insightful and offered some hope for more books! Overall, this book is a must read for fans!! You will not be disappointed! *This was a (F)BR with Mistress warhawke, a.k.a. Hawkey!

The Original Sinners series Så tag mit hjerte i dine hænder, men tag det varsomt og tag det blidt, det røde hjerte – nu er det dit. Det slår så roligt, det slår så dæmpet, for det har elsket, og det har lidt, nu er det stille – nu er det dit. Og det kan såres, og det kan segne, og det kan glemme og glemme tit, men glemmer aldrig, at det er dit.

The story, the characters and the Author, Tiffany Reisz herself. So any additional time spent with Søren and Nora is a bonus. The Confessions is not a full-length novel and contains entire series spoilers. Please read the full series before reading this one. “It hurts when we realize we can’t give everything to the person we love, that we can’t be everything to the person we love.” The Original Sinners series is one of the most well-written, addictive, passionate, sarcastically funny and emotionally harrowing series I’ve ever read. Tiffany Reisz takes your heart, soul and mind along a journey of broken and beat up hearts. Love and its accompanying madness. Unlikely friendships, honest, pure and beautiful love. Obligations and religion. All in her very own unique, intelligent and alluring prose. If you bottled up all the tears I’ve cried from both sorrow and laughter, well it would be overwhelming to say the least. “You were born to be a priest. It’s who you are and what you are and you will never be at peace if you leave the church. It would be like cutting the wings off an angel.” The Confessions take place during two - somewhat - life-changing chapters in the Original Sinners series through baring of souls and thoughts. Marcus Stearn and Eleanor Schreiber each take a turn and it was truly an honour and very insightful to be with Søren at this pivotal point of what was the beginning of something extraordinary. No one will ever measure up to Søren the priest nor Søren the man. Every word gripped me during the sparring between Father Ballard and Søren as the serious and thoughtful was entwined with dry humorous banter. A perfection which felt momentous, very personal as well as vulnerable. Being with Nora and the circumstances surrounding her confession was quite an experience too as it centred round a time where I felt her doubt, pain and love from within, yet it was delivered in her usual sharp sense of humour and irrevocable defence. This Confession being with the much older Father Ballard, who’d heard much about her but never met her before. I adored and loved Father Ballard in this. Cheeky and wise – what a character! I inhaled every single word as if it was my next breath. The Confessions is not a long read so I went back immediately and re-read it to savour what I’d only just read. I will never be able to express how much this series means to me and with this, well it was just perfection. I have to say that I hope we get more no matter how long or short as I know for a fact I will never have enough. Read on for “The Confession of Tiffany Reisz.” “There’s a spirit in her, something that keeps her aloft, high above everything that would bring her crashing to earth….She is the freest person I’ve ever known.” ✲✲✲✲ ✦✦✦ TB Blog :TotallybookedBlog ✦✦✦ Come say Hi : TB on Facebook ✦✦✦Follow us: TB on Twitter ✦✦✦Check out: TB on Pinterest

    The Confessions is a novella in Tiffany Reisz's amazing Original Sinners series. This small book is split into three parts: two short-stories and one Q&A/interview with the author. The Confessions is labeled #8.2 in the series and should be read in that order as there may be spoilers for fans new to the series.

This small book is split into three parts: two short-stories and one Q&A/interview with the author. The Confessions is labeled #8.2 in the series and should be read in that order as there may be spoilers for fans new to the series. The three parts are titled as follows: The Confession of Marcus Stearns At this point in the series, Søren has met Nora who is still a minor and he is confessing to Father Stuart Ballard his thoughts when it comes to this sixteen-year-old fireball. I found it very insightful in seeing how seriously Søren takes the priesthood and the very down-to-earth support system he has in Father Ballard. The Confession of Eleanor Schreiber At this point in the series, Nora is an adult in The Red Years. She seeks out Father Stuart Ballard (versus Søren) for her confession as a promise to her mother. She is typical Nora in her forthcoming nature and honesty and these qualities also allow readers to see a more vulnerable side to her in this story which I found very interesting. The Confession of Tiffany Reisz I so enjoy reading interviews with authors so this Q&A with Tiffany Reisz ranked right up there with the fictional short stories. I learned about Ms. Reisz, her thoughts about this series, and other miscellaneous things. It was just fun to read. My favorite quote: “I also mentally decapitated a man who cut me off in traffic the other day. Good thing we’re judged only on our actions, not our fantasies. ... Even the most intelligent people have to be reminded of the obvious sometimes. You are not judged by what you think, but what you do. We all have horrible thoughts, thoughts that shame us, thoughts we don’t even want God to see.”

The Confession of Marcus Stearns “I don’t know where to start,” Marcus said, a rare note of apprehension in his voice. But then…then he smiled and laughed and for one second he looked like a boy, not a man. A boy in love. I don't know how to write proper review about this. He's still Marcus so let's call him that. His confession really amazed me. Since his lost due Kingsley, now he's back to confess about Eleanor. Father Ballard is his confessor for years and he knows Marcus inside out too well. Damn I love this man so much! He's open-minded laid-back. So cool :D Believe me. Whatever Søren did all this time, he's very CALCULATED person. He knows the consequence. There is nothing worth more than her. The Confession of Eleanor Schreiber “Is this your first confession?” “Not by a long shot. I have a priest I confess to once every few months.” “But that wasn’t good enough for your mother?” “She didn’t like my priest. Thought he was a sinner.” ... “How so?” “Because I’m sleeping with my priest.” Our Nora/Eleanor came to this specific person to confess her sin(s). It's kinda shocked me about her true feeling because she seems fine. Tough cookie, huh. It moved me a bit with her confession about Fionn and her heart. She feels 'divided' between Søren and Nico. This is the first time I know her heart. The Confession of Tiffany Reisz For Søren, his best is him being a responsible, caring and CAREFUL sadist. His worst is being the sadist he would be if it were suddenly proved the heavens were empty and there is no God. When he’s with Nora, God’s watching. When he’s with King, God is not looking. Or at least Søren hopes God isn’t looking. Well well, this is our queen. She really did wonderful job with this series. Without her, there will be no sinners. I really enjoyed with her 'confession' and the true facts about Søren ;) AND I was so glad that Tiffany didn't choose the NUMBER 21 for the ending! God (and Søren) forbid it!

    This was fucking awesome! Loved the confessions. Søren's made my heart swell for him, we knew he loved her, felt his agony when he begged her to come back to him but reading him compassionately declare his love for her, just wauw! And not only for Nora but as well his love for Kingsley! Nora's confession was a complete surprise; not once do you get how she really felt about Fionn. A really nice completion (hope not) for the original sinners. And father Ballard? My man, my hero! Without a doubt This was fucking awesome! Loved the confessions.

    Who flew through this book and forgot about the notion of time? <--- This girl "Do you have time for me today?" "I might. What's her name?" he asked, his usual joke when another priest approached him for confession. Ballard looked back and saw Marcus had his rodary beads wrapped around his fingers.

Something about the way he held them, tight and nervous, made Ballard's blood drop a degree or two in his veins. "Eleanor," Marcus finally said, and the air went of the room. Let's not beat around the bush. This review will be short and sweet. If you are a fan of Tiffany Reisz's The Original Sinners series, this is a must read novella for you. We begin with the confession of Father Marcus Stearns. He pays a visit to his confessor, Father Ballard, 6 months after meeting Eleanor. After we read through his confession, Father Ballard hears Nora's confession, which takes place around the time of last two books in the Original Sinners series. The novella finally ends with a confession from our very own Maitresse Tiffany Reisz. When I tell you I adored everything about this novella, I mean every word. It was highly anticipated by me and I wasn't let down in the least. I shouldn't be surprised at how much I enjoyed Father Ballard's character. The novella is told from his POV and we gain insight from previous confessions and his inner turmoil in hearing them in the first place. We learn things from both Soren and Nora that enhance our favorite stories and shed light on how deep these characters feel. I don't want to spoil anything, so I won't say anything else, but I loved, loved, loved it. Read it. Read it. Read it. 5 infinity billion stars #fangirling #dontcare Rating Legend: 5 star-love it 4 star-liked it 3 star-it's okay 2 star-don't like it 1 star-hate it --------------------------------------- previous post (before release)--------------- Omg we got a cover and a date!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In fact one should read the entire "The Original Sinners" Series before reading "The Confessions". It is, itself, a giant spoiler. My literary friends, I had been thoroughly captured heart and soul by this series. After reading through to "The Mistress", I had a visceral reaction to the ending of this book. That Soren would have penetrative sex with Grace and she conceived his child had my heart and mind in an uproar. I expected more from him. I expected fidelity. Of course these are my personal expectations of a fictional character in a work of fiction envisioned by a clever, insightful and creative writer. Crazy...Right? I tried to examine my strong reaction to this event. Heretofore, I was thoroughly enjoying this series. I am a cradle Catholic. My personal experiences with the clergy of the church have not been ideal. I do however, understand both loving your religious tradition and at the very same time, abhorring the paternalistic, often anti woman, even demeaning of woman misdirection of this ancient religion that in my humble opinion hardly resembles what Christ envisioned for His followers. I concurred with the ideas presented in the series that love, real love could never be a sin. I am broad minded about all the BDSM elements. I find them intriguing, sometimes, though, cringe worthy as passions overwhelm the lovers. I believe...in some way...all clergy have some sadism in them. This is probably a function of early childhood experiences in Catholic school. Soren was cast as irresistible to me...a highly intelligent, highly disciplined, loving priest that was sexy beyond cliche'. One of the best things going for him was his fidelity to his loves, Kingsley and Nora. Then after barely rescuing his love, Nora, and making it out of a life-threatening situation alive himself, he plants his seed in another woman he has only known for days. He had to know she was not on birth control. She had to know she was in the fertile time of her month. Was he so greedy of all of life's blessings that he had to try to have a child? Now that he does...he will never be a father to this little one. My understanding is that he will meet him at least one time. Then what? What about Nora? No matter this character, Nora's protestations that she never wanted a child, from all the character development of Nora, I cannot believe that Nora is not hurt in some visceral way as me, the reader, who understood her and identified with her. I have always kept my head in reading even the darkest love story. I pretty much accepted the character presentation by the author. Here and there I may have found that there were inconsistencies from one idea presented to the next but that was simply mediocre writing or mistakes of a developing writer. Neither is the case here. Certainly the writing is not mediocre and the development of these characters has followed understandable, although intricate emotional shifts. I had an idea. I thought that because we were never privileged to read Soren's POV that perhaps if I read his confession, I would find a greater understanding of his character and what he was thinking...whether he had any remorse in his actions. Of course the writer fleshed out his character more like a variation on a theme but nothing forthcoming about his feelings at being a father. In Nora's confession there was an acknowledgement of her having a negative emotion at discovering a photo of Fionn nursing at the breast of Grace in Soren's bible. The message on the back of the photo indicated that Soren had requested such a photo from Grace. Nora confessed this as a sin of jealousy. I believe it is more the pain of hurt. Hurt being a form of anger. What follows is Nora reconciling herself to the circumstances of her life. She realizes that Soren's actions were motivated by his secret desires and needs that he did not wish to impose on her. It is not enough for me. Soren has lost some of his cache as a character for me. It appears that publicly acknowledging his son will be the straw that breaks the camel's back and he will be defrocked. He is willing to give up the priesthood for his distant son but he never seriously considered it for Nora. One can do good works, pray just as fervently, venerate the sacraments as a Deacon or laity. He could even become an Episcopalian priest. Never for Nora??? Did he really need the fruit of his "own loins". Are there not enough children unwanted and in need of a home in this world that could have used him as a father? Is having both a genetic and real father in Zach really going to be fair to his faraway son? While I enjoy this series and probably will continue to enjoy it as I go back to the point I left off, some of my love and passion has diminished. Once again, I must reiterate that these are my crazy feelings and thoughts. Perhaps they were borne out of the fact that every encounter I had with a Catholic priest or religious person resulted in profound disappointment. Maybe, I judge Soren too harshly and should just let him be the character that Ms. Reisz created him to be. However, in doing this, part of my heart must close itself off where once it was wide open. Of course, there is always Kingsley. Now he remains irresistible!!!

Narrated by Matthew Lloyd Davies The Confessions is a novella in Ms. Reisz’s Original Sinners series. This “quickie” at only 2 hours 49 minutes packs quite the punch and is sure to be a must listen for fans of this series who are looking for a greater understanding of both Soren’s and Nora/Eleanor’s perspectives. Please note though that, due to the reflective aspect of this book, however, it is not meant to be listened to as a standalone. While optimally the listener should have read or listened to all of the prior books in the series, I think at a minimum the listener would have had to have either read or listened to either The Red Years Quartet (featuring Nora’s years as dominant; books 1-4 in the series) or The White Years Quartet (featuring Nora’s, then known as Eleanor, years as a submissive; Books 5-8 in the series). In my case, I must confess that I have only listened to The White Years Quartet, but I was so floored by the forbidden love aspects of this story, not to mention Ms. Reisz’s ability to tiptoe right up to the boundary of what is morally acceptable, that I could not pass up the chance to listen to and review The Confessions. And what a treat it was! The primary figure in The Confessions is Father Stuart Ballard, who has been the priest that Soren (also a priest) has confessed his sins to since he was a teenager. Soren’s confessions relate primarily to the early years, when he first meets Eleanor, and pertain to his grappling with his feelings over Eleanor (then just a 16 year-old teenager; Soren at the time was in his late twenties), as well as the first love of his life, Kingsley. Many years later, Nora pays on an unexpected visit to Father Stuart Ballard where she relays her own confessions relating to Soren and the several other “hims” that have played a major role in her love life. Perhaps my favorite quote by Father Stuart Ballard is that over the telling of Nora’s confession, he tells Nora that she has more “hims than a hymnal.” Last but not least, we are treated to an interview with none other than Tiffany Reisz on her thoughts as to these characters both today and as she was writing them.

    Update for the release day Book Review: 5 Millions Stars I cant express enough how much I love this novella! Both confessions, Sorens and Noras, were so much needed for the entire series. They gave another perspective about the depth of their feelings, desires, fears about the dynamic in their relationship with each other, as well as with King and Nico. Both confessions were simply perfect. Before I ever talk about the confessions, I need to say that Father Stuart Ballard was the coolest priest Update for the release day Book Review: 5 Millions Stars I can’t express enough how much I love this novella! Both confessions, Soren’s and Nora’s, were so much needed for the entire series. They gave another perspective about the depth of their feelings, desires, fears about the dynamic in their relationship with each other, as well as with King and Nico. Both confessions were simply perfect. Before I ever talk about the confessions, I need to say that Father Stuart Ballard was the coolest priest ever. He has been Soren’s confessor since he was in seminary, Ballard was called to the priesthood when he was a teenager, but he didn’t get ordered as a priest until he was 30. Due to his history, he was in love with a beautiful woman before he was ordered, he is often the confessor of priests with this kind of “troubles”, hence, he is Soren’s confessor. It was pretty awesome to read his dynamic with Soren, or Marcus as he called him, because he never got used to called Soren by his real name. Father Stuart wasn’t afraid of Soren, like most people were, instead he teased him a lot. I loved to read Father Stuart’s memories about them playing rock songs—YES! Soren played rock songs in the piano, believe it or not. But what I really loved the most about Father Stuart was that he was a good father figure for Soren. It was good to know Soren had someone enough open minded to talk about all his feelings, fears and desires, and even better that he accepted what Stuart said in return. Father Ballard wasn’t a listen-and-nod kind of confessor, he always had a say about everything, and Soren accepted his words with his heart open. “Something tells me that loving your Eleanor will be penance enough.” Soren’s confession takes place during the timeline of The Saint , while Nora’s confession takes place between The King and The Virgin . I will not give so many details about both confessions, because people should live them completely, but I can only say I cried like a baby for hours. I was sitting cross legged on the floor, trying my best not to mess the book with my tears. They were falling uncontrollably! And then I was laughing my ass off with Nora’s confession, until the hard part arrived. I can’t decide which confession I love the most, because both were so perfect, Soren’s had one of the statement that knocked my ass off, and Nora’s had two or three that left me speechless. “Past and present, black and white, north and south, sinner and savior, all united in worship.” If you are already a fan of the series, you know how important is for you to read this novella, so GO READ IT! It’s Soren’s orders—or Nora’s if you prefer the mistress on charge. If you haven’t read the series, please start from the beginning. The Siren - Review The Angel - Review The Prince - Review The Mistress - Purchase The Saint - Review The King - Review The Virgin - Review The Queen - Review BTW, Tiffany confessed all her sins in this book too! :D Her interview was awesome to read. --- These confessions are so needed to complete the series!

One thing's for sure - they're all heart-touchingly honest, giving readers an intimate look inside the heart and soul of each 4.5 Stars - Queen Tiffany has spun her magic again - this time giving readers an upfront and personal peek at the confessions of three sinners: Marcus Stearns (Soren), Eleanor Schreiber (Nora), and the slightly wicked queen herself - Tiffany Reisz. The vote's still out on which of the three confessions is the most sinfully shocking - but I'm betting on Queen Tiffany! One thing's for sure - they're all heart-touchingly honest, giving readers an intimate look inside the heart and soul of each character/person as they confess their darkest sinful secrets. There's no way to read their confessions and remain unmoved, untouched . . . they instantly brought the entire series back to life for me - a story that is revealed through all eight Original Sinners books, pages overflowing with pain, pleasure, need, desire, love, and so many secrets. If these books and confessions don't move you, don't make you feel, you're not breathing. In The Confessions, readers are privy to two different intimate discussions between two characters . . . 'reconciliations' - the Roman Catholic sacrament of penance, and readers are also treated to an interview/confession with author Tiffany Reisz and a bonus section of fun facts about Marcus Stearns aka Soren. Marcus's confession occurs during the historical timeframe of the Original Sinners White Years novels The Saint and The King. Nora's confession takes place the year before the present-day events of The Virgin and The Queen. In The Confession of Marcus Stearns, Marcus/Soren seeks out Father Stuart Ballard to hear his confession. Having first confessed to Father Ballard as a heart-broken eighteen year-old, Marcus/Soren trusts him with his darkest secret sins. And now, eleven years later, the forbidden secret he shares with Father Ballard has the potential to destroy lives. I was touched by the magnitude and possible life altering ramifications of Marcus's confession. I was touched by the man behind the collar and by the sincerity of his need to serve and protect those he loves. I was touched by his anguish as he comes to recognize and accept responsibility for some truths. And, as always, I was touched by the limitless depth of his love. I've often heard "It ain't love if it can't break your heart." After hearing his confession, what Father Ballard fears most for Marcus is that his heart will be broken . . . again. In The Confessions of Eleanor Schreiber, Nora seeks 'reconciliation' from Father Ballard also. I have to say Nora's confession may have touched me the most - maybe because I discovered there's something our whip-cracking, shameless Nora fears. A heart-touching vulnerability is exposed as she breaks down and cries - finally owning and sharing her grief with Father Ballard. What has the power to cause Nora such devastating pain? What has bruised her soul and broken her heart? Nora's confession brought tears to my eyes as she finally recognizes and accepts some truths about herself and the men in her life. The Confession of Tiffany Reisz is an interview between Tiffany Reisz and reviewer Cyndy Aleo that took place on January 22, 2016. All I'll say is it's an eye-opening, "educational", fascinating, and yes, maybe even slightly wicked interview in which no subject is taboo. This ole Southern girl was rendered speechless a time or two and was heard yelling "OMG" more than once after reading it twice . . . okay, three times but who's counting? I literally felt pieces click into place (what I call "Ah Ha" moments) as I listened to the author sharing a few of her "surely that's a sin" secrets! Tiffany is her usual witty, brilliant, fabulous, outrageous self, and I can't thank her enough for sharing the riveting, twisted, mind-blowing experience that is the Original Sinners with readers. Here's to you, Queen Tiffany! It's been one hell of a ride and just so you know - I would definitely saddle up for more! I'm dying to say more about each of the confessions, but I can't without revealing spoilers which this reviewer refuses to do. I will just say - If you're a fan of the series, you're going to love this book. If you haven't yet read all eight of the previous books, stop right now and complete the series before you read this one. Anything as potent and addictive as the Original Sinners, including The Confessions, should be labeled a "drug" - illegal without a prescription. Fortunately for readers, it's not. If you're open to spreading your wings, stretching your boundaries, and having your mind blown, read this series. Love it or hate it, there's one thing I guarantee - you'll walk away feeling lucky to have survived the avalanche of intense emotions these books evoke . . . and you'll be begging for more! They say confession is good for the soul. You're about to find out if that holds true for Soren, Nora, and Queen Tiffany! The Confessions is a Page Burner! A Must Read! *Many thanks to Tiffany Reisz for an arc of The Confessions for review. Full review, excerpt, and author & ordering info available at: Cross My Heart Writings & Reviews.

    I will never, ever, have my fill of Soren/Nora/Kingsley. I will devour each word Ms. Reisz pens when it comes to her unholy trinity. Love this series, never wanting to let these characters go. I look forward to all novellas that keep their stories alive.

The Confessions should be read after the original eight books of the series, therefore I will not be able to avoid some spoilers. “Love is never a sin. If it’s a sin it’s not love. And if it’s love it’s not a sin.” Søren's confession is told from Father Ballard's POV. It takes places shortly after Søren met Eleanor for the first time. Father Ballard is an interesting priest. I would gladly go to confession every month if he would be my confessor. He is open-minded (or at least he tries to be), he likes classical music and old-school rock (that's just amazing) and he always has some witty comments. Also, anybody who can stand his ground against Søren is a hero and will surely be awarded a sainthood. I kind of highlighted almost the entire Søren's confession. It was that good, yes. I was laughing out loud the whole time. Like I said, Father Ballard is an amusing man. But what I actually liked the most, is Søren vulnerability. He is always composed and serious, but here we see him so open and damaged. How he fell apart after Kingsley's departure. His words were pure precious, especially because he rarely shows affection toward Kingsley. Seeing teenage Søren so human and mortal - I like him like that. Kingsley kissed me first. I punished him for it because I was too scared to kiss him back. I thought if I started kissing him, I would never stop. What if I never kiss him again? Kingsley used me as a pillow. I loved waking up to find his head on my chest or my stomach or my back. He has long dark hair and he laughs when I pull it. That’s how I’d wake him up, tugging on his hair. The best days were the days his laugh was the first sound I heard. What if I never hear it again? I was cruel to him because he liked it and because I loved it. When I told him he was beneath me, I only meant…I wanted him beneath me. Always. He left me. And he never came back. Nora's confession is also told from Ballard's POV. It has a little more serious tone but I did laugh too. It's mostly about hard decisions we have to make in life and love. Nora has a very complicated love life of course. It would be interesting to hear Kingsley's confession as well. If only he wouldn't be so attached to his sins. He doesn't want to be absolved of them, hence we probably won't hear his confession anytime soon. “It hurts when we realize we can’t give everything to the person we love, that we can’t be everything to the person we love.” And for the end - Tiffany Reisz' confession/ interview. Some of her lines I liked the most. Kingsley doesn’t believe in God really. Well, Kingsley also doesn’t believe in me. He doesn’t know I exist. But I love him. Nora and I have nothing in common except our senses of humor and hair color. Everyone thinks we’re just the same. We couldn’t be more different. I was a high school goody two shoes. Oh, and we’re both Switches but Kingsley is also a Switch. Sadly no one ever mistakes me for King. I’ll have Søren do penance by joining a monastery. He can be Father Sextus. AWW YEAH... Søren is standing at my desk and shaking his head in a definite “No.” He doesn’t want to get up at 4:45 a.m. on a Saturday any more than I do.

    Loved it. At this point, I'm so emotionally invested in these characters, that I don't know what should happen for me to dislike one of Reisz's book. I found Eleanor's confession particular interesting, it broke my heart. My reason for giving it 4 stars is because I didn't care much for the author's interview. I don't know exactly what my expectations of it were, but I found the interview too simple and not book-worthy. I rather author would've posted it on her website and had written Kingsley's Loved it.

    Let me start by saying if you have not read all of the books in the Original Sinners series DO NOT read this. This is strictly for those who know the story because there is a lot of back story. With that being said, if you have read the entire series (thus far) you will LOVE The Confessions. These stories are like a warm embrace from an old friend or a blanket fresh out of the dryer. They will bring comfort and joy while giving a little more insight into tales we are familiar with.

These stories are like a warm embrace from an old friend or a blanket fresh out of the dryer. They will bring comfort and joy while giving a little more insight into tales we are familiar with. This is also more of a novella. Both The Confessions of Marcus Stearns and The Confessions of Eleanor Schreiber are told from the perspective of Father Stuart Ballard, which really adds a fun and unique perspective to the tales. As many of you will recall, Father Ballard is Søren's long-time confessor. The Confessions of Marcus Stearns "takes place during the historical timeframe of the Original Sinners White Years novels The Saint and The King" so you know it's a turbulent time in Søren's life. Søren has been coming to Father Ballard for about eleven years at this point so he is pretty well caught up on Søren's sins and even still, Søren manages to surprise him. His confession is quiet but the emotions are so very loud, his heart troubled. If you didn't feel for him before or believe in his love for his Little One, you will after reading this. The Confessions of Eleanor Schreiber "takes place the year before the present-day events of The Virgin and The Queen" and our lovely Nora sure has quite the confession! I was so surprised about what she told Father Ballard but it makes complete sense and it was nice to see her be vulnerable in a new way. She is the same Nora we have fallen in love (and/or lust) with but with a new spot of insecurity. Just like with Søren, if you (miraculously) weren't charmed or enchanted by Nora before, you will be now, just as Father Ballard is pulled in by their encounter. The Confessions of Tiffany Reisz is a fun interview/conversation Reisz had with Cyndy Aleo earlier this year and it is a real treat! DO NOT SKIP THIS! It provides insight into the brain of Reisz and is full of fun dialogue and witty banter. There are twenty-one facts about Søren at the very end that are enlightening and fun to read. It's like "you think you know, but you have no idea" kind of things. It further demonstrates how intelligent and thoughtful Reisz is as a writer and supports the awe and gratitude I have for that woman's talents. If you have read the Original Sinners series you want this novella in your life. It's is a short, beautiful, charming read and I know I'll come back to it time and time again.

    When I read that there was this bonus story released in a very limited quantity at RT I was so sad as a lover of this series to learn that it was not something that was going to be available to the public. And then I saw the post, and I nearly died. Mrs. Reisz announced that she was going to be publishing this story (adding new material) and my day, no scratch that. My life was made.

And then I saw the post, and I nearly died. Mrs. Reisz announced that she was going to be publishing this story (adding new material) and my day, no scratch that. My life was made. This novella consists of three parts. Soren and Nora’s confession To Father Ballard and then a very enlightening interview with Tiffany Reisz, which was just as intriguing and captivating as the main sections of the book. From the point of view of Father Ballard, we get to experience the relationship Soren had with his mentor and his confessor. While divulging his feelings for meeting a sixteen year old Nora and we get a glimpse into the heartbroken boy that lost his King. During the next confession, Nora’s part takes place in more of a present day setting. She’s returned to Soren, Soren has Kingsley and Nora has Nico... It’s a glimpse into a far more vulnerable Nora than we are used to seeing. It broke my heart to read parts of Nora’s confession and I admit it angered me a bit. I am not a huge fan of Grace. I do not find her character charming or endearing, but almost manipulative. I just can’t bring myself to like her at all. Not one single fuck is given over Grace. In the closing of this novella we get the words directly from the author. Hints at future Sinner books, even the second generation of Sinners. I don’t think I could ever tire of reading about these characters. When I first picked up the series I was a bit overwhelmed by the number of books, novellas and free short stories. But I knew after reading the first book that I would have to read everything. And I did. I devoured everything Sinners that I could get my hands on. The series ending was a heartbreaking moment, and that was eased a bit knowing that these characters might just one day make their way back onto printed page. A fantastic insight to one of the most smartly written erotic romances there is out there.

    Im the most open-minded priest I know but for Gods sake, dont paint me a picture. The Confessions is a treat for the fans of The Original Sinners series. We get two amazing Søren and Eleanor centric short stories from Father Ballard's point of view and an interview with Tiffany Reisz. It was amazing to revisit both Søren and Eleanor via their confessions. Father Ballard was amazing in Poinsettia, so I was really pumped when I realized the two stories in this collection are from his point of I’m the most open-minded priest I know but for God’s sake, don’t paint me a picture.

If you've never read The Original Sinners this is not where you should start, but if you're a fan like I am, you're definitely going to enjoy revisiting these characters. I do recommend reading Poinsettia first, though.
