Just when I find myself thinking Tiffany’s books can’t get any better I am proven wrong. If only we would have had this book first, I think everyone would have had such a different opinion of Søren. I loved the way this story was told. In mostly flashbacks from Nora. I hope all the installments of the White Years are told exactly this way. As a bedtime story so to speak.

Anyone who’s read The Original Sinners series knows that Eleanor was a troubled youth. Things with both parents weren’t great and she found herself in a little bit of trouble more than once. She never thought she would find someone to save her. Someone who cared for her so much that they would do anything to protect her, to keep her safe. She really didn’t think she would find this man at church.
This man, this most beautiful man she’d ever seen in her life, this man who was the incarnation of her every hunger, every desire and every secret midnight dream... This man was her new priest?

From Nora’s teenage years all the way until she is twenty we get to see her relationship with Søren. We see how much he really did help her and mold her into the woman she is now. Nora is and has always been fabulous, but the path she was headed towards wasn’t the best. Søren was there as an ear to listen, a person to talk to, and he made her aspire to do better. To be a better person.
“Whatever this game is we’re playing, I’m going to win it.”

“If you trust me and obey me, we might both win.”

Nora quickly realizes that Søren isn’t playing games with her. She falls deeper and deeper in love with him as time passes.

I may not have been the biggest Søren fan from the beginning. When I first read The Siren, I had mixed feelings about him. As the series went on, I grew to love him. In this book, I had nothing but love for Søren. I think even those who don’t care for him will fall hard for him here. There love really is inspiring.

I will still gladly proclaim Nora as my favorite heroine ever. She is so spunky and fun. I will never grow tired of reading of her.

There is also an element of mystery to The Saint. Though the story focus’s on the past, primarily Nora and Søren’s relationship, I found myself wondering why Nora was where she was and why she was with the person she was with. There are a few things left open, but no cliffhanger.

I don’t care what crazy things happen or what gets thrown in their way, I still firmly believe that Nora and Søren are a couple that is truly meant to be. They’ve been through their fair share of obstacles. Their relationship is far from perfect and their love story is far from conventional, but it is still so beautiful.

This series is original, addictive and brilliant. The writing is stunning. Tiffany Reisz is an autobuy author for me. If she writes it, I will read it. And the fact that the next book is about one of my favorite characters, Kingsley Edge, makes me even more excited to continue on this journey. I loved all the Kingsly we got in this story and I can’t wait for more!
“You mind-fucked me.”

“Does your brain hurt? I tired to be gentle since it was your first time.”

This is a book and series you won’t want to miss out on! If you haven’t read them yet, I can’t recommend them enough. And if you’ve already read The Original Sinners series, you won’t be disappointed with this!
“Every choice has a price. Sometimes we don’t know what it is until after we’ve paid it.”

“Your nightmare might turn into your best dream someday.”

About The Saint by Tiffany Reisz:

Before she became Manhattan's most famous dominatrix, Nora Sutherlin was merely a girl called Eleanor…
Rebellious, green-eyed Eleanor never met a rule she didn't want to break. She's sick of her mother's zealotry and the confines of Catholic school, and declares she'll never go to church again. But her first glimpse of beautiful, magnetic Father Marcus Stearns—Søren to her and only her—and his lust-worthy Italian motorcycle is an epiphany. Eleanor is consumed—yet even she knows being in love with a priest can't be right.
But when one desperate mistake nearly costs Eleanor everything, it is Søren who steps in to save her. When she vows to repay him with complete obedience, a whole world opens before her as he reveals to her his deepest secrets that will change everything.
Danger can be managed—pain, welcomed. Everything is about to begin.
