Jonathan Drazen is a known womanizer; and a gorgeous piece of man I’m not letting into my heart.

Yeah, he’s rich, beautiful, charming as hell, and he has a wit as sharp as a double-edged razor. But he’s made it perfectly clear that this is a short-term fuck. Three nights, tops, then we part like sexually satisfied grown-ups.

I believe him when he says he can’t love me. I’m not trying to fall in love, either.

We get in. Get it on. Get the hell out. Done.




Review:   If there is one thing I can say about author CD Reiss, it’s that her writing style captured my attention within the first few pages of Beg, the first book in the Songs of Submission series. She also had me groaning at the well-crafted cliffhanger, ready to beg for more.

In this series, Monica is a singer who is drawn to a rich man known for his love ’em and leave ’em reputation. Jonathan pulls Monica into his web, but both of them are looking for a quick and easy way to satisfy their cravings for each other.

As Jonathan presses Monica for submission, she’s determined to stick with the plan to further her career without any excess baggage. So begins a passionate test of wills to see whether a spine-tingling attraction is enough for Monica to break her own rules and beg.

From start to finish, I was fully engaged with the characters and the developing storyline. The chemistry between Monica and Jonathan was evident, with each encounter boosting the hotness meter.

This is an example of a book featuring a perfect mix of both emotional depth and physical interaction coupled with an engaging storyline and believable characters. CD Reiss now has a spot on my keeper shelf.
