Holy shit. Did Tiffany Reisz write a romance? Did she just make the romance genre THAT much hotter with her dark and twisty ways? Hell yes, she did!
Sorry, I'm overly excited.
Picture Perfect Cowboy by Tiffany Reisz is a novella in the Original Sinners universe, and stars Simone, photographer and pro-sub, and Jason, a famous retired bull-rider and sometimes model, who now owns a horse farm in Kentucky.
I'm going to be honest. I didn't think I would like this book. Cowboys and all things country is not my thing. The cover isn't great. I hate the title. I was king of dreading purchasing it, and taking the time to read it to be honest. I was only going to do it because it's an Original Sinners novella. I am SO GLAD I gave it a chance. This is the first, and only book in this entire series I have put in the romance category. The other books all tip toe that the line of happiness, and end up bittersweet. This was romance, with a big ol' heaping of Tiffany's erotic literary magic. I couldn't stop reading it once I started. I loved the story for multiple reasons. For one, this is the first book I read where the female was the experienced one, and was "teaching" the male. Second, the message of the book was kind of beautiful. What consenting adults do behind closed doors is no one's business, and doesn't define you as a person. Third, the romance. I'm not usually a fan of quick love stories, but this seemed believable. For someone who typically writes BDSM erotica with a not always happy ending, Tiffany Reisz sure does write romance well.
I gotta say, I love the characters in this book. Simone is hardly a character in the Original Sinners main novels. We know she is a professional submissive, and Søren calls on her often when Nora and him are separated. It was nice to get to know her character, and I see why Søren liked her. She fully owns her kinky side, but that is only a part of her. She's a sweet girl with dreams and goals. Jason is a total sweetheart. I couldn't help but feel for his character. How many people in this world grow up believing they should be ashamed of themselves, just plain disgusted by themselves, because of how they are raised? Too many. It's nice to not only see a character written to highlight this fact, but a male character.
Don't let the cover and cheesy title scare you away, like it almost did me. Picture Perfect Cowboy is a surprising feel-good book, but with all the delicious dirty details we love to get from Tiffany Reisz. You won't regret reading this one!

Where to Buy
Jason: "Something funny?"
Simone: "Oh, nothing."
Jason: "You sure?"
Simone: "I thought it was funny that I said 'Rusty' could be your safe word."
Jason: "And why's that funny?"
Simone: "Because you didn't ask me what a safe word is. You already knew."
Simone: "I'm just going to shut up now and take the pictures."
Simone: "I keep putting my foot in my mouth around you."
Jason: "You said, ah ... you still sometimes, you know, do your other job?"
Simone: "Pro-subbing? Yes? You know someone who needs one?"
Jason: "Yeah. Me."
Simone: "No offense, but I don't like anyone but me touching my equipment. My photography equipment, that is. Other equipment is negotiable."
Jason pointed at her
Jason: "That's flirting."
Simone: "Just trying to make you laugh."
She wasn't sure if she was allowed to say ass. Maybe she'd say it anyway just to find out. She might get another spanking if she did, though.
Oh, the horror. Not that.
Jason: "That's what I'm calling you from now on. Spanky. My little rascal."
Simone: "Oh, God."
Simone: "I'm a pro-sub. I submit for an hour or two here and there to men who pay me. I know how to do a lot of kink, and I enjoy a lot of kink. I've dated kinky people and slept with kinky people, but I've never been the real slave of someone I was in a relationship with. I mean, not that you and I are in a relationship. I just ... I mean, you're not paying me."
Jason: "Not enough money in the world to pay you for what you're giving me."
Simone: "This is what I think. If you're enjoying it and I'm enjoying it, then we're doing it right."
Jason: "I'm not enjoying it. I'm loving every second of it."
She walked over to him where he stood with his back to the counter. She put her hands on his shoulders and looked up into his eyes.
Simone: "I was hoping if I stood within kissing distance, you'd kiss me. You say something like that to a girl, and she'll probably want to be kissed after."
Simone: "Of course ... if you showed up at the club with your crop in your hand, there'd be a line around the block of subs, slaves and masochists waiting their turn for you."
Jason: "And what's the address of this club of yours?"
She looked up at him, eyes narrowed and glaring
Jason: "Oh, look at that - Spanky's got a jealous streak. I like that."
Simone: "I saw you first."
Jason: "You all right there, Spanky?"
Simone: "You killed me dead. Put on my tombstone, 'Here lies Spanky Levine, done to death by her master's cruelty.'"
Jason: "Cruelty? I made you come so loud my ears are ringing."
Simone: "You didn't put your cock in me. That's cruelty."
Jason: "It's my cock, not yours, and I'll put it in you on my say so, not yours."
Simone: "Ooh ... That was very sexy, sir."
Jason: "Well, better bunk with me. I've never had a pink-haired gal in my house. No telling what your sort gets up to in the night."
Simone: "We can be awfully wily. You should probably hold me really tight, in case I try to sneak out and get up to no good."
Jason: "If I hold you real tight tonight, we'll probably get down to no good."
Simone: "Then it's a win for both of us, sir."
If he wasn't careful, he was going to get real used to this real damn fast. And that was going to be a real problem once Simone left. So maybe he ought not to let her leave. And after that bright idea, Jason fell asleep too.
Jason: "Good morning."
Simone: "Good morning, sir."
Jason: "Now get your ass out of bed and dressed. Be in the kitchen in five minutes or else."
Simone: "Or else what?"
Jason: "You challenging me?"
Simone: "No, but I don't know if I can get cute in five minutes so I'm just wondering what the consequences are if I'm late."
Jason looked up at the ceiling.
Jason: "Lord, give me the patience to put up with the pink-haired girls and their sass."
Simone: "You stole my panties."
Jason: "I'm keeping 'em too. What are you wearing under there?"
Simone: "Boxers. Yours, sir."
Jason: "Cute. Real cute. I guess we need to get your luggage out of the car."
Simone: "I don't know. I like wearing your clothes. Nice and cozy."
Jason: "We got another option."
Simone: "What's that?"
Jason: "I could keep you naked all week."
Simone: "If that's what you want. Sir."
Jason: "You'd get cold."
Simone: "Not if you kept me warm."
Jason: "You are killing me."
Simone: "Oops? Sorry?"
Jason: "You're about as sorry as I am."
Simone: "Did you buy Cupcake for Katie?"
Jason: "Ponies don't cost much."
Simone: "You totally bought a pony for a little girl. That's the sweetest thing ever."
Simone: "Your ass is dangerous. I better keep my eyes off it and on the road."
Jason: "Your ass is gonna get it later for swearing in front of a little girl's pony.
Jason looked over his shoulder and winked at her. Simone nearly fell off her damn horse again at the naughty wink.
Simone: "So you get to threaten me with corseting and spanking in front of Cupcake, but I don't get to say 'ass'?"
Jason: "That's right."
Simone: "How is that fair?"
Jason: "It's not. But I'm your master and you're gonna follow my orders, fair or not. You got that?"
Simone: "I got it, sir."
She almost asked him to give an order right then and there. She wanted him to order her not to fall in love with him. A simple order to give. Maybe an impossible one to follow.
Luke: "Naked calendar. Photo shoot. Yesterday. You were supposed to call and tell me how it went? Remember? You getting in the raw in front of that sexy-as-hell photographer from New York?"
Jason: "Hey, how do you know she's sexy as hell? You never met her."
Luke: "Seen her pictures, man. Why do you think I agreed to be in the stupid calendar in the first place? She's got a website. I've been on it. A lot. I'm on it right now. Oh my God.."
Jason: "Yeah, I'm gonna need you to stop doing that."
Jason: "Cuz I said so. And aren't you supposed to be in traction?"
Luke: "My dick's in traction after looking at her in tight corsets."
Jason: "Dude, stop it, I swear to God."
Luke: "Whoa. What the hell is going on, man? I just called to find out if she was as pretty in person as she is in her pictures."
Jason: "Yes, she's very pretty, and she's sweet, too. Don't talk about her like that to me. All right?"
A long pause followed
Luke: "You fucked her."
Jason: "I'm hanging up."
Luke: "You dirty dog, you did. God damn, I am killing myself as soon as we get off the phone. I gave that girl to you on a silver fucking platter."
Jason: "That's not how this works. What Simone and I did or did not do is none of your god-damned business, and if you keep talking about her like that, you're gonna be in traction for the rest of your life."
Luke: "I better get to be best man in the wedding, son."
Jason: "I feel mighty flattered. I didn't know my ass was that good."
Simone: "I'm a fangirl of it. You want to see the Tumblr?"
Jason: "Not in a billion years."
Simone: "You really thought you were crazy because you like kink? Kink is not crazy. Bull riding is fucking crazy."
Jason: "Maybe I oughta just tie you to my bed and not let you ever leave."
Simone: "I've heard worse ideas."
Jason: "You are too good to be true."
Simone: "That's funny, sir."
Jason: "And why's that?"
Simone: "I keep thinking the same thing about you."
Jason: "That an invitation?"
Simone: "You don't need one, sir."
Jason: "That's right, I don't. A man doesn't need an engraved invitation to come in his own house."
He stroked her back with his fingertips, happy to simply hold her and touch her. And he better do it, too, hold her and touch her as much as he could, since she would be leaving soon. Unless he ordered her to stay. No, he couldn't do tha. You couldn't order someone to stay with you, could you? That wouldn't be right. He couldn't force Simone into staying with him. That wasn't fair to her. But he could ask her to stay, couldn't he? Maybe he could. Maybe he would. Maybe he'd never get invited home for Christmas again, either.
It shouldn't be this hard to fall in love with someone.
Simone: "Master Jason..."
Jason: "Yes, Spanky?"
Simone: "Nothing. I just like saying that."
He kissed the top of her head. Maybe it wasn't so hard to fall in love after all.
Text message exchange:
Simone: Do sane women fall in love with random cowboys after spending four days with them?
Nora: Depends on the cowboy.
Simone: He trussed me up in a corset last night and fucked me - on camera.
Nora: Marry him.
Simone: I'm not in love with him. I just keep thinking about how nice it would be to spend the rest of my life with him and be his cookie-baking slave forever. That wasn't a euphemism. I baked him cookies and he loved them and it made me happier than it should have. Also, he smells really good. And he spanks like a god. And he bought a therapy horse for a little girl who has speech problems after brain surgery. And I keep almost crying every time I think about leaving because I want to spend the rest of my life with him. That's not love, right?
Simone: Okay, so maybe I'm in love with him. HELP!
Five minutes later he walked into the house.
Simone sat on his sofa in his living room drinking a cup of tea and trying to look very, very innocent.
Simone: "Hello, sir. You're back early."
Jason: "Are you trying to kill me?"
Simone batted her eyelashes
Simone: "What do you mean?"
He held out his phone.
Simone: "Have you never had a woman text you a picture of her pussy before?"
Simone: "Oh. I thought that was standard procedure these days. Want some tea?"
She held out her cup to him, still half full. She smiled. He didn't.
