Review: The Chateau by Tiffany Reisz

Book Title: The Chateau

Author: Tiffany Reisz

On-Sale Date: June 5, 2018 (Worldwide)

Genre: Erotica / Romantic Suspense

As the Jack-of-All-Wicked-Trades for a secretive French military intelligence agency, Lieutenant Kingsley Boissonneault has done it all—spied, lied, and killed under orders. But his latest assignment is quite out of the ordinary. His commanding officer's nephew has disappeared inside a sex cult, and Kingsley has been tasked with bringing him home to safety.
The cult’s holy book is Story of O, the infamous French novel of extreme sado-masochism. Their château is a looking-glass world where women reign and men are their willing slaves. Or are they willing? It’s Kingsley’s mission to find out.
Once inside the château, however, Kingsley quickly falls under the erotic spell cast by the enigmatic Madame, a woman of wisdom, power, and beauty. She offers Kingsley the one thing he’s always wanted. But the price? Giving up forever the only person he’s ever loved.

The ropes around his wrists were long enough Polly didn’t have to untie him. Kingsley simply rolled onto his stomach and moved back into place, the ropes twisting into a knot. The pressure on his wrists was comfortable, but tight enough to feel like a pair of strong hands. Strong hands on his wrists, Kingsley lying prone, someone about to take him… 
Just like high school.
“I see you smiling,” Polly said as she moved off the bed to do whatever it was she needed to do. 
“Just remembering,” he said. “It’s funny. I don’t usually smile when I remember…”
Polly kissed the back of his shoulder. “I’ll give you a memory to make you smile.”
Kingsley let out a breath of pleasure as Polly laid her hand flat on the small of his back and caressed him there.
“This is my favorite part,” she said.
“Back rubs?”
“No, silly boy. Backs are my favorite part. Boy backs. My favorite body part,” she said. “Right here.” With her fingertips she lightly scored the center of his back where his tailbone met his spine. “Maybe that’s why I love doing this so much. The view of you is divine…”
With a compliment like that, how could Kingsley object to anything she wanted to do with his body? Polly whispered instructions in his ear. He did as told, and he did it with pleasure. He pulled his knees up under him and spread them. Polly worked the plug out of him carefully. 
She positioned herself behind him and started to slowly…slowly…slowly enter him. Too slowly.
Polly told him to lay flat, to stretch out his legs—however was most comfortable for him. He was under the strictest of orders to tell her the second he felt a moment’s pain. But there was no pain, no discomfort. Fullness, yes. Not pain. Not like he’d known once. 
“You like this, don’t you?” Polly said as she kissed and licked the back of his neck. “Being taken? Penetrated? Used?” 
“Very much.” 
“Say it then,” she said.
“Say what?”
“Say you like penetration. You said you aren’t shy, so say it. Or are you shy?”
He opened his mouth, laughed softly. “You make me feel shy. It’s an accomplishment.”
“Kingsley…” Polly said as she nibbled on his earlobe. “Say it or I’ll stop fucking you…” Her voice was teasing, but the order was an order. It had to be obeyed.
“I like being penetrated,” he said. “There. Happy?”
“So very happy. If I keep doing this,” she said and thrust into him, “will you come?”
“You’re sure?”
“I would bet my life on it.”
“You’ve come from penetration alone before?”
“I have.”
“High school?”
“Wouldn’t you like to know?”


As a lover of the Original Sinners series, I'm always deliciously anticipating how a new book with these characters will proceed and Reisz never fails to surprise me with something in them.  The writing, as always, sucked me in from page one and held me captive from one page to the next, all while falling deeper in love with these characters. 

I loved going back in time, as it were, with Kingsley and learning more about what made him the man he is today.  I've always enjoyed the glimpses into Kinglsey's past and this book was no different - except it was a whole lot more than I expected.  Don't get me wrong, it was filled with the same deliciously dirty fun you'd expect from Kingsley but there was so much more. 

As one would expect The Chateau was filled with twists and turns and unexpected surprises along the way. This story is so much more than Kingsley's undercover work at a sex cult, there is much to be learned, much to glean from this part of his life.  

With visits from Soren throughout, I felt like I was back with my friends, because I've missed these characters.  I hope there are many more stories to come involving the Original Sinners and their lives and stories because I don't think I'll ever get enough of them.  

I was lucky enough to receive and early copy of this book from 8th Circle Press, but all of the thoughts on this story are mine.
