The Rose by Tiffany Reisz

Not all authors can write a book like this. When 50 got huge, this genre got saturated very quickly. The erotic genre that is.

I can honestly say that Tiffany Reisz is one of those authors that has dominated and perfectly executed in this genre. I will read anything that she writes.

This novel was amazing. It was sexy and alluring and kept me on edge for the entire novel. I love mystical stories and this was the best blend I have read in a while. I loved that this book kept the heroine on her toes and guessing. I also loved that we, as the reader figured out everything before she did. I felt like I truly did spend this novel yelling at it while I read. This book takes us on a journey page after page and if you like mythological couples and ideas at all, you will love this.

Author Tiffany Reisz returns to the world of The Red with an imaginative sequel full of lust and magic, and the dangers unleashed when the two are combined… On the day of Lia’s university graduation party, her parents—wealthy art collectors with friends in high places—gift her a beautiful wine cup, a rare artifact decorated with roses. It’s a stunning gift, and one that August Bowman, a friend of her parents and a guest at Lia’s party, also has his eye on. The cup, August tells her, is known as the Rose kylix, and it’s no ordinary cup. It was used in the temple ceremonies of Eros, Greek god of erotic love, and has the power to bring the most intimate sexual fantasies to life. But Lia is skeptical of August’s claims of the cup’s mythology and magic—after all, he’s a collector himself, and she suspects he just wants to get his hands on this impressive piece of art. So he dares her to try it for herself, and when Lia drinks from the Rose kylix she is suddenly immersed in an erotic myth so vivid it seems real—as though she’s living out the most sensual fantasy with August by her side… Realizing the true power of this ancient and dangerous relic, Lia is even more wary of giving it up, though August insists it is only safe with him. He’s willing to pay the full value of the cup, but Lia has another type of trade in mind. One that finds them more tangled up in each other—and in fantasy—than either was prepared for.
