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.
