Review: The Chateau
As the Jack-of-All-Wicked-Trades for a secretive French military intelligence agency, 24-year-old Lieutenant Kingsley Boissonneault has done it all—spied, lied, and killed under orders. But his latest assignment is quite out of the ordinary. His commanding officer's nephew has disappeared inside a sex cult, and Kingsley has been tasked with bringing him home to safety.
The cult’s holy book is Story of O, the infamous French novel of extreme sado-masochism. Their château is a looking-glass world where women reign and men are their willing slaves. Or are they willing? It’s Kingsley’s mission to find out.
Once inside the château, however, Kingsley quickly falls under the erotic spell cast by the enigmatic Madame, a woman of wisdom, power, and beauty. She offers Kingsley the one thing he’s always wanted. But the price? Giving up forever the only person he’s ever loved.
The Chateau is a new standalone Original Sinners novel from international bestseller Tiffany Reisz, author of The Siren and The Lucky Ones.
I don’t know what I expected when I started reading this book, but it definitely wasn’t that. This was my first read of the series and while I wasn’t lost trying to follow along, I expected more from the assassin plot line.
It was an easy read and well-written. I enjoyed the descriptive details about everything - it really helped to transport me into their world. Overall, this really wasn’t the book for me, unfortunately.
I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
