This book has one of the kinkiest scene in it and let's just say one of them was ehm.. a little disturbing:
Sometimes there were parts I hated/ found boring/ didn‘t care about and parts that where really good/ compelling/ that I didn't want to stop reading about. Needless to say I have mixed feelings about it =D
Pls don't read this if you haven't read this book ;)
What I liked:
First a relationship between them seemed unlikely because of there differences:
Griffin the rich playboy and poor shy Michael.
Once upon a time there lived an unhappy young boy. Unhappy he was, for his mother ignored him, and his father didn't like him one little bit. All the nice things, kind thoughts and loving touches were not for him. Michael used to spend a long time watching the cat(aka Nora) but little time talking to her for Michael was very shy. On time the cat said,
"Miaow", which really meant, "Cheer up! You have something neither of your parents can take away and that is beauty and your kink."
Suddenly something amazing happened. In the church, where Michael was sitting, there was a burst of light and a fairy (aka Soren) appeared.
"Don't be alarmed, Michael," said Soren. "The wind blew me your sighs. I know you would love to spent the summer with Nora and Prince charming (aka Griffin). And so you shall!"
When Michael arrived at his destination the prince set eyes on Michael and was struck by his beauty. Just after some time both were truly in love with each other and couldn't deny their feelings anymore. but Griffin was cursed by the big bad wizard so he was not able to be very, very near his heart Micheal.
So to prove his love he challenged the big bad wizard Soren (who is also kind of the fairy) and... WON! After returning both had hot kinky sex ehm.. were really happy. Still there lay a shadow upon their happiness.
"I am scared of facing my parents," Micheal confessed.
"Don't you worry, I'll be there with you," Prince Horny answered.
And so they went to meet Michaels parents.
Surprise! Michaels father was unhappy with them. Griffin who couldn't bear to see his love unhappy made him go away for he had the money power. As soon as his father disappeared Michaels mothers curse was lifted and she could love her son again,
So Michael joyfully went with Griffin, and lived happily ever after with his Prince.
And as for the cat, she just said "Miaow"!
God, I should stop writing fairy tales. XD
So the point of this little story (yes there is a point) is that I think both (Griffin and Michael) are really cute together and their story has something kinky-magical (if there even is something like this) to it.
I loved them together but their story seemed a little bit too much of a fairytale....
It was nice to know more about shy Michael (I hate his part in the first book -.-). we got to watching him grow and understand that he doesn't have to feel ashamed of who he is or what he feels.
It's sad how his parents don't want to support him and abandon him :(
►Horny-Griffin (in a kilt!!!):D
Griffin is my favorite character in this book.
“You know, it's a good thing I'll never have to get a real job. I'm a sexual-harassment lawsuit waiting to happen.”
I didn't like him that much in The Siren but here he was awesome! Gorgeous, funny and caring^^
I want a sarcastic butler like him who I can call Alfred xD
"Thank you, Alfred," Griffin said, taking the supplies. "There's a thousand dollars in the cookie jar. Go buy yourself something pretty."
"I will purchase a firearm and shoot you with it," Griffin's butler said, bowing elegantly. "Master Griffin."
Every time I read about him I had to smile :)
Now he is someone about who I'm not really sure about. But I'm starting to like him more and more ;)
His “Tell me, have you ever had sex in the back of a Rolls Royce?" questions were just hilarious!!
I really want to know more about him and what his story with Soren is ;)
► Wes... i ♥ him
“No, she and I never had sex. That’s true. But we had love, real love that didn’t take anything out of us, that didn’t bruise us or break us. I loved her without hurting her.
You asked me if I, a virgin, could teach her what sex should be? No, course not. Hell no. But at least I can teach her what love should be like. And she knows it too.”
He loves her so much and I really don't think she deserves him... I wanted to read more about him but the main focus was on..... not on him.
What a shame that he doesn't play such a big role in this book :(
What I didn't like: let the rant begin =D
► Physical appearance:
There were just too many beautiful people. Everyone that is mentioned in this book is good-looking handsome gorgeous lovely stunning pretty etc..
That's just unreal! I would have really liked to have some normal looking people in it^^
I don't like... at all and I don't get why so many people are crazy about him.
One of the main reasons why I didn't love this book is that
1) Soren was sexually abused when he was younger and because of his tragic past idk, should I like him better? It is sad what happened to him but I still don't like him. And I every time I read about how wonderful and great he is...arrgh! It seemed that his past was just used to make him more likable
It felt like being forced to like him :/
But thing that really bothered me about his abusive childhood was that it was portrait as the reason for him to be a sadist.....
How often have I read about heroes with a bad childhood/past? ( Christian Grey? Gideon Cross?) Is that always really necessary?
2) How is Soren able to hid his double life?
I really would like to know that. As a priest he is quite popular and I think if he would be sneaking away for a some time someone should have noticed. It's not like he goes away once a year so that he can easily hid this other life.
There should have been some suspicious people. Where are those old ladies that love to gossip????
3) Moral aspect:
Soren has taken a vows of celibacy. It's another thing that he doesn't keep this vow.
My problem here is that we never get to know what Sorens standpoint is about that.
►Story: where is the main focus?
There are so many stories rolled into one so that it's hard to say which one is more important: Griffin/Michael, Nora/Soren, Nora/Wes, Soren/Suzanne,...???
I liked Michael and Griffin in this book but idk if they are even important for the whole story. (Just like Zach)
►Elizabeth's meeting with Suzanna:
That was just... unreal.
Imagine one night a reporter comes to your house and wants to ask you some questions. So would you admit to raping your brother and murdering your father?? To a Stranger!!
And she raped her brother because she was raped by her father so that maybe her brother would kill her, Where is the logic???
If you experience something bad would you really want to do those things to others? It's a little unbelievable -.-
►Griffin buying Michael from his father:
Really does that make him go away? That's a little too easy. Maybe he shut Michaels father up for some time but he will come back for more money. I don't think he will leave them alone. More than ever now that he knows he can get more money out of it.
”She didn’t know why she ran. She didn’t know who or what waited for her in the White Room.
She only knew she had to get there as fast as she could and whoever it was, he was worth
Worth running to but not staying with... just don't hurt Wes!
I actually still like Nora but I can see why some don't. The thing I don't like about her is that we know so little about her :/
In this book we got to know who her mother is (and she doesn't approve of her relationship with Soren) but not really much more.
♪But mama, I'm in love with my priest
And this type of love isn't rational, it's physical
Mama, please don't cry, I will be alright
All reason aside, I just can't deny, love the guy.♪
hahaha while reading I heard this song and this was perfect xD
