“When The Siren Calls is a sexy, seductive book. There is love, betrayal, infidelity and unexpected twists. There is so much going on, it's like watching a really good movie. It’s brilliant.” - "Books and Reviews“
"The thinking woman's Fifty Shades" - "Female First."
"A very well-conceived story with interesting characters and a tantalizing pace. I couldn’t ask for more than that.” – Jennifer Custer, Literary Agent, A.M. Heath
“ A pacy, racy, romance novel that simultaneously feels like a critique of a particular social scene. The prose is very strong technically, and the characters are comprehensive and believable. Isobel is an effective and sympathetic protagonist, and her story is compelling.” – Tom Fletcher, author, ‘The Leaping’
““[The sex scenes in When the Siren Calls] are vital, pacy, and never gross or uncomfortable – as the annual Bad Sex Awards shows, this is rare in fiction. I thoroughly enjoyed the way the strands come together as the novel pushes towards climax." – Matthew Branton, author, ’The Love Parade’.
“A sexually-unfulfilled wife in a tricky situation and a handsome stranger coming to her rescue. Give me good old escapism any time.-” Alana Woods, author, ‘Imbroglio’.
“I loved this book! I am recommending it to all my friends who love smart, sensual stories with twists that keep you guessing.” – 'Erin Potter, Shamrock Editing.'
“This story grabs you by the throat from the start. The opening scene is every woman’s nightmare.” -'Kathleen Patel, Amazon Books.'
“Wow- Lady Chatterley meets Christian Grey ! It’s exciting to find a new writer who tells life like it is, but with a delectable twist of romance, sex and humour.” - Stephanie J Hale, author, ‘Millionaire Women, Millionaire You.’
“Witty, often deliciously self-conscious and smattered with the best sort of irony, When the Siren Calls is both seductive and funny. If ‘humourotica’ is a genre then Tom Barry is its king; if it does not yet exist then he is its creator.” – 'Book Connoisseur.'
“Tom Barry follows in the footsteps of the great Irish storytellers.” Ré Ó Laighléis, author, ‘Hooked.’
