Review:The Confessions by Tiffany Reisz

Three Sinners. Three confessions. And all the dirty little secrets you could possibly desire...

Father Stuart Ballard has been Marcus Stearns’ confessor since the young Jesuit was only eighteen years old. He thought he’d heard every sin the boy had to confess until Marcus uttered those three fateful words: “I met Eleanor.”

So begins the 40-page “The Confession of Marcus Stearns,” a moving coda to the RITA® Award-winning Original Sinners series. Originally published as a limited-edition paperback for the 2014 RT Booklovers' Convention, and available worldwide for the first time.

This collection also includes “The Confession of Eleanor Schreiber,” a companion 36-page story written exclusively for The Confessions.

And, finally, all secrets are revealed in “The Confession of Tiffany Reisz,” an exclusive, in-depth interview.

What I thought about The Confessions

In this companion novella to the Original Sinners series, Tiffany Reisz takes the reader to what is usually the very private and confidential Catholic sacrament of reconciliation otherwise known as confession. Both Soren and Eleanor share their most private sins with their shared confessor, Father Ballard.

Fans of this series will absolutely want to read this. If you new to the series and plan on reading it, you'll want to save The Confessions until the end because of some major spoilers.

I love Tiffany Reisz' writing for it's sense of humor and the intricate way she  constructs the relationships and circumstances of the story. All that goodness is strong in this novella set. Father Ballard delivers a lot of the humor and for me he was the star of this duet of novellas. 

There's also a bonus interview dubbed The Confession of Tiffany Reisz where the author reveals details about the characters and the Catholic religion in an interview format.  At times this part gave me too much information about my favorite characters in the Original Sinners series that I'd prefer to leave to my own interpretation, so enter at your own risk here.

I love this series,  mostly because it makes me think about religion and kink. (Hard to believe I'd even use those two words in the same sentence!) The characters are never boring. It's a very unique story, and The Confessions adds something to this world. I'm glad I had the opportunity to read it. It's a must-read for fans of the series.
