WOW. It's been a week since I finished The Siren definitely piqued my curiosity. But it's undoubtedly [a:Tiffany Reisz|4480131|Tiffany Reisz|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1337395840p2/4480131.jpg]'s flawless writing that sucked me in. For something shelved as erotica I found that there were more fade-to-black scenes than graphic descriptions. Yet, I don't think I've ever read anything more sensual and seductive in my life. As Zach had said in the book, "show - don't tell." And that's exactly what Tiffany did. Her characters are unlike anyone you've read before. The dialogues are smart, the thoughts are honest, and single sentences hold so much meaning. Her storytelling is just so captivating and powerful that I am convinced that if she decides to write a book about slimy aliens copulating I'm sure I'd read it with utter fascination and zero repulsion.

If you're still hesitant after all I've said and in need of support then let me know and I will read this with you and encourage you with every progress update you make. Trust me. You'll be seduced. I know I was.

"Every mouth you've ever kissed was just practice.
All the bodies you've ever undressed and ploughed into
were preparing you for me.
I don't mind tasting them in the memory of your mouth.
They were a long hallway,
a door half open,
a single suitcase still on the conveyor belt.
Was it a long journey?
Did it take you long to find me?
You're here now.
Welcome home.
