Bourbon, Gypsy, & The Red by Tiffany Reisz

So is it me or is Bourbon (the liquor) everywhere from books like J.R. Ward (has any of you read Devil's Cut?) and Tiffany Reisz, to TV. Even my favorite liquor store has stocked up on different kinds of Bourbon!

Speaking of TReisz, I've read her new erotic novel THE RED a few weeks back but got busy and was unable to blog about it until now. Nevertheless, I absolutely loved it! It's a sexy, erotic, artsy fantasy that will make you feel so dirty and enthralled at the same time. TReisz never ceases to pique my interest be it in the world of BDSM, Bourbon, lighthouses, and now art. She will turn you on then have you running to Google looking shit up. I'm not sold on the mild supernatural flair in THE RED, twice now she's done this, and I'm wondering if she's going to plunge into the world of fantasy and sexify some beastly or boring preternatural creature like leprechauns or the abominable snowman. In any case, this lady can and will make anything sexy once she waves her magic pen (or keyboard) on it so bring it on lady, we're ready, willing, and excited.

Continuing to this sexy Bourbon-themed post, I've also finished the Netflix series GYPSY starring Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup and man oh man, it's deliciously scandalous! It's an erotic psychological thriller about a psychologist (Watts) who got obsessed with a patient's ex-girlfriend AND meddled too much in her patients' personal lives. A definite must-watch if you haven't seen it yet. Oh! And one of Watt's tells when she's "shifting" personalities is Bourbon.

To close things off, I slowly eased myself into trying Bourbon, trying Bourbon Ale (Kentucky Bourbon being my favorite!) first and absolutely loving the sweet smoky taste. So I caved in and bought my first bottle of Bourbon. It's small and my local liquor curator (fancy!) said that it's sweeter than the average and a great bottle to try for first-timers like myself. I've only had a shot, drank it with lots of ice, and it effing burns! I did taste some sweetness in the end but my palate isn't that refined yet to appreciate its unique flavor. Practice makes perfect?

Mona Lisa St. James made a deathbed promise that she would do anything to save her mother's art gallery. Unfortunately, not only is The Red painted red, but it's in the red.

Just as she realizes she has no choice but to sell it, a mysterious man comes in after closing time and makes her an offer: He will save The Red if she agrees to submit to him for the period of one year.

The man is handsome, English, and terribly tempting...but surely her mother didn't mean for Mona to sell herself to a stranger. Then again, she did promise to do anything to save The Red...

The Red is a standalone novel of erotic fantasy from Tiffany Reisz, international bestselling author of The Bourbon Thief and the Original Sinners series.

  1. Lol yes Bourbon seems to be every where. I loved Devil's Cut. Another good one is the Bourbon Thief

  2. I have heard that this author does great with her erotic romances, so maybe when I am in the right mood, I will grab her up.

  3. I guess I never thought about it, but it really is pretty much all over. lol...

  4. not much a Burbon fan, but I'll def try the beer version of it better than regular beer?

    anyhoo's haven't read a T. Reisz book in a whole minute, gonna have to try her again :D

  5. Thanks for the reminder on Gypsy!! I watched one episode then got distracted and forgot to go back

  6. I don't drink at all but yeah Bourbon does seem to be everywhere.

  7. I've noticed that bourbon is around a lot too. I'm not a big fan, but I can drink it in a pinch. I prefer Scotch. I love Tiffany Reisz. I'm waiting on the audiobook for The Red. I have The Night Mark on my ipod, but just haven't dived into it yet.

  8. I've always liked bourbon and smell but I can't drink it. I try it all the time, though!! Hard alcohol and me don't get along :( You are sooo right about it being every where now, though.

    Man, I wanted to read "Red" by Reisz!! I can't wait to read the Bourbon Thief this weekend ;) I'm glad to know you like her writing - I'm stoked!!

  9. I agree Bourbon does seem to be everywhere. Thank's for sharing. Glad you enjoyed The Red.

  10. I just put the Bourbon Kings on my library audiobook wish list. So I will be right in line with your theme. I love Bourbon Barrel aged beers.

  11. I'm not much of a bourbon fan either, but I do get amazed by some of the titles of drinks these days to tempt you to buy them. I watched Gypsy as well. Initially it started off slow, and I gave up, but I came back later and really got into it. I've found some pretty neat things on Netflix lately. Hugs...RO

  12. I am not a bourbon drinker, but I loved The Bourbon Thief by TReisz. Of course, I also really enjoyed The Red! This woman can write anything, and it will turn out heartbreakingly beautiful because she just flows that way ;)
    I hope you're having a good first week of August, Braine!

  13. Ha Braine you penned a new term "sexify" I love it. I have The Devil's Cut waiting in my audible library this series is the ONLY thing I've EVER pre-ordered and believe me the sexy southern drawl of Alexander Cendese is the absolute best way to experience this dramathon contemporary Dallas/Dynasty-esque trilogy.
    As far as the Bourbon goes the way I understand it, it's become the new black.
    Glad you like it I can't (literally) stomach corn mash, doesn't play well with my innards :)
    Thanks for the great post/review and I'm so glad you're back

  14. Bourbon, everywhere for sure. Loved your themed post, Braine. I have her lighthouse and bourbon books.

  15. I've read the Original Sinners series, but not the Devil's cut or the Red... I am missing out aren't I? This sounds fabulous!

  16. My husband's drink of choice is whiskey. We have even gone to a couple Scottish tasting events and I have to be honest, it's not for me. The people at our table always get a kick out of watching me and the faces I make as I try to choke down the tiniest of sips. It's just too much for me but it's such a classy drink and the Mister really likes it... so I keep trying it to see if my taste buds change. For now, this classy bitch is sticking to wine. :P

  17. It does seem like since JR Ward's book it's been everywhere. I've seen one that was so dang close in title to Wards I just went mmhm.

  18. I never noticed it, but now that you point it out bourbon does seem to be all over!

  19. Ah yes, The Red was really good. Dirty in the bet way! I can't drink very much bourbon, I just don't do well with liquor like that.
