    Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

    I definitely felt that Reisz took her time in making sure she showed the kind of love Kingsley has for Soren instead of simply telling readers that he loves him. ~ Under the Covers

    THE PRINCE primarily follows Soren and Kingsley - my two favorite characters in this series - into their past as young, curious students and the present where disappearances and threats cause them to be on high alert. This book also spends considerable time with Wes and Nora in Kentucky where Misstress Nora gets acquainted with Wes's lifestyle

    I think the easiest way to get my thoughts across is to break down the book into its respective parts so bear with me!

    Kingsley and Soren - The Past

    These parts were definitely my favorite of the book! I loved reading about a young Kingsley and Soren. King's arrogance is still very much evident when he was younger and I loved reading about his vulnerability as well. Reisz really focuses on how Kingsley craves pain and how deeply he falls for the person who administers that feeling. I definitely felt that Reisz took her time in making sure she showed the kind of love Kingsley has for Soren instead of simply telling readers that he loves him.

    Kingsley and Soren - The Present

    I enjoyed these parts as well, but I also felt that a lot of their time in the present didn't explore what the author built up in the sections from "The Past". I would have liked to see the present outcome of what happened to them as young men and how their relationship then changed over time. Most of these sections really built upon the mystery subplot. While I enjoyed the thriller mystery, I did miss the dynamic that Soren and Kingsley had in the previous books. I don't think we saw much of that in THE PRINCE.

    Wesley and Nora

    Unfortunately, these parts were my least favorite of the book. I adore Wes and Nora, but together, I don't know. There's no spark. They are very sweet together, but I felt as if the story was slowed because of their time together. As Nora was introduced into Wesley's world, I felt as if Nora was a "virgin" - everything seemed new to her. Similarly, the fact that Wes IS a virgin also stalled their relationship greatly. The storyline involving the horses didn't really hold my interest for too long and I simply wished for more development between Wes and Nora .

    The Sex

    This is the part where I am torn. I loved the scenes between young Soren and Kingsley, but since it involved a lot of pain and humiliation, I think that also affected how much I liked it. Reisz definitely does not pull back. The sex scenes are intense. Again, Wesley and Nora's time together didn't do much for me. Overall, THE PRINCE is not my favorite book in terms of the sex. But I do still think that Reisz does a good job of writing M/M scenes.

    Final thoughts

    I enjoyed THE PRINCE. However, I don't think I enjoyed it as much as the first two books in the series. The cliffhanger ending has definitely got me excited about the next book, THE MISTRESS. I hope we get the same excitement and thrill that the Original Sinners series has delivered so far!

    I liked it, but wasn't a fan of the whole Nora-Wesley thing That's why I gave it four stars. But it is a good read and worth getting. I will warn you - if you're not into reading about BDSM edge-play, this may not be for you. Soren and Kingsley not only play at the edge, they go over into the abyss.

    I received a digital copy of this book from NetGalley for review

    I received a digital copy of this book from NetGalley for review purposes.

    I got to read The Siren last year, and was greatly looking forward to reading the rest of the books as they came out.  This book focused
    on Wesley on his home ground, and Nora’s relationship with him.  A lot of things come to light about Wes - he’s not necessarily who
    we thought he was.  Nora actually has a little crisis of  confidence, wondering if she’s good enough for him.

    The books ends on a bang, and I almost hate the author for ending it there.  Seriously?  I might have to hire a hit man for that.

    I did find the Soren and Kingsley story interesting, as well, and that part dovetails with Nora's adventure with Wesley in a very
    interesting way.  That series of showdowns will be fascinating to watch.

    True love always

    Wesley wants to give her all the money in the world, soren gave up money for priesthood. Soren tried to give up priesthood for her. Nora has a very strong superficial love for wesley but a strong internal forever love for soren. Everybody falls for soren and nora, lust and love. They are the perfect match of wanting each other and the need to forever be together! Its fate it cant be broken. I think nora was sent by soren to help wes like she did daniel, michael and griffen. I dont think he wants to send her in his heart but gets the higher power that she has to. This is why he prays she comes back to him. She is just as much god to people as he is but she dont know it like he does. He does the same stuff he does to others as he does to her. I really enjoyed tge story between soren and kingsley but wes story was hard to get attached too. Dontg feel it just feel shes tgere to help him. I cant wait to read the priest and see how their love and bond started. Thank u tiffany

    My Review: Yes, my rating for this book is lower than the other

    My Review:
    Yes, my rating for this book is lower than the other two have been. (Honestly, I don't think that any book in this series will ever top The Angel for me.) That's not because it's not good. It absolutely is, but this book didn't leave me gasping and reading as fast as I could. This book is simply a fabulous story. It didn't keep me at the edge of my seat, because it's not that kind of book. This one is about the story and as such, it moves at a slightly easier pace. I was even able to *gasp* set this book down and walk away for a few hours at a time. That didn't happen with the first two. This book allowed you to breathe and is truly a set-up book for the final, which has most definitely been set up to be a shocker. Major cliffhanger alert! This book has it.

    You find out the history between Kingsley and Soren. It wasn't as shocking as I expected it to be, but I really loved those scenes. They were Labeled as North- the Past. You also get quite a bit of Kingsley and Soren now in the North- the Present sections too. We've always known Kingsley as a peripheral character so it was interesting to get insight into his psyche in this book and just how much he loves Soren. Although, like all the other Sinners, my heart just ached for him. (All of these characters have been through so much.)

    There are no labeled chapters in this book as we find these main four characters in two locations. Kingsley and Soren are in the North. Wesley and Nora are in the South. So all the chapters are labeled according to whose story we are following in any given section of the book. In this particular book, those stories are completely separate. Until the final line in the book, there is no interaction between the North and South.

    Wesley and Nora... I truly love them together, but some little something just seemed to be missing for them in this book. They didn't have the sizzle that I wanted for them. I have a feeling that's because Nora so isn't vanilla, but after their encounter next to the fireplace, I am hoping that she will get Wes to thinking more her way. I liked how Wesley is finding out that Soren isn't someone to hate.

    There is one section of the book where Wesley and Nora are talking about romance/sex in her novels and how it's so unreal compared to their real-life relationship...I loved this section and thought it really fun.

    Is it wrong here that I want them all to end up happy?? Is that even possible with this group? I sure hope so. Only book #4 will tell...

    I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
