Blog Tour: The Saint by Tiffany Reisz + Giveaway

Hey Everyone,

Welcome to my spot on The Saint blog tour! This book has been one of my most anticipated
books of 2014! I literally counted down and begged the ladies of The Novel Tease until 
they send around the signs ups for this tour!  And even though I had been approved for arc of this book via Netgalley a while back, I hesitated and prolonged starting it. I knew once I finished this book the wait for the next book in the series would be brutal. But alas,  I read it and it was better than anticipated and is probably my favorite Tiffany Reisz book to date! And that is definitely saying something, as all our her books are brillant! 

Book Synopsis:

In the beginning, there was him. 

Gutsy, 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 Søren Stearns and his lust-worthy Italian motorcycle is an epiphany. Suddenly, daily Mass seems like a reward, and her punishment is the ache she feels when they're apart. He is intelligent and insightful and he seems to know her intimately at her very core. Eleanor is consumed—and even she knows that can't be right. 

But when one desperate mistake nearly costs Eleanor everything, it is Søren who steps in to save her. She vows to repay him with complete obedience…and a whole world opens before her as he reveals to her his deepest secrets. 

Danger can be managed—pain, welcomed. Everything is about to begin.

 My Review:

This book was the perfect kind of nostalgia for me. It was so wonderful to be back with this group of characters and to see them in a brand new element.

This book starts off with two big shockers. First of all there is someone in Nora's bed who you would never suspect. I was a bit startled to read who it was and was off the bat curious to see how it would effect a different relationship, one that I oh so love! Second there is an angle that is hinted at that made me gasp, re-read the pages and over and over to again to see if  had misread the passages. I had the same reaction to the way this book started as I did with how The Mistress ended. I was floored and immediately took to twitter and tweeted Tiffany going, "No say it ain't so." She told me to trust her and keep reading. And I was glad that I did.

Nora is by far one of my favorite leading ladies and to read the story of her youth was probably one of the best autobiographies I have ever read. It was fascinating reading about her teenage years and to see how she still had that snarky and take no prisoners attitude.  To watch her meet Soren and Kingsley and her initial thoughts and reactions to them was wonderful. We even get to see bits and pieces of Sam which was very nice. I knew I would enjoy this book, but I thought there's not much then could happen that would make me love this book more than the original 4. I thought we already know some of the stories from Nora's youth, her troubled relationship with her parents, her run with the law, how she met our favorite Priest. We'd seen bits and pieces of this story in the Red Years. Yes, I knew I would have enjoyed this book, but I was completely moved and enamored with it.
I didn't think it was possible to love Soren more. But I do. I didn't think it was possible for Kingsley to get any hotter. But did he! And I didn't think it was possible for Nora to get even more kick ass then she is - but oh boy did she.

I loved how she from the beginning Ellenor knew what she liked and experimented with what she could.  And I absolutely loved watching her explore Soren's and Kingsley's world and watching her take the ropes was amazing. There is this one scene in the book, that is actually very comical, I mean it is supposed to be. It involves an empty chair and a conversation with God. It was meant to be comical, but it also completely moved me and frankly brought tears to my eyes. It just showed how out of this world, the love between Nora and Soren is and how even at a young age, before anything had even happened between them, she knew she would make any sacrifice for this man!

Tiffany said to trust her and I will never question what she does with our favorite characters ever again!

5 stars all the way!!! Bring on book 2!
