About CD Reiss:

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Liz’s Review~Captivated by Bethany-Kris

4-5-stars

“Life. Love. Forever.”

description

Captivated is a non-stop action mafia romance with smoking hot passion and tender romance. Joe Rossie is a highly respected Chicago hitman for the mob. When he is called to New York City to assist in a special project for a New York crime family, he meets the beautiful mafia princess Liliana Marcello and he is completely captivated by her. Liliana is a professional ballet dancer who is no stranger to the idiosyncrasies of the life of a crime family. Although she has been focused on her career and tried to stay away from love, Liliana is drawn to Joe and the two form an instant connection. When passion transforms into deep love, Liliana begins to trust Joe with her heart. Joe feels an authentic connection to Liliana and yet, he knows that when she finds out the truth about why he is in Chicago, he might lose her forever.
description

“Joe didn’t relent the second his mouth was back on her pussy. He was the starving man, and she was the fucking feast spread out before him.”

description

“You want me to pet that pussy?”

Told in dual POV, Captivated is packed with action, suspense, and intrigue. The characters are complex and the plot takes off like a race car on a NASCAR track. In other words, you better buckle up because the plot is full of twists and turns that will make you catch your breath and stop your heart. The connection between Joe and Liliana is explored thoroughly as each moment seamlessly flows into the next. The dirty talking dialogue delivered by Joe is sure to leave any reader swooning and begging for more! The passion and romance between the two are smoking hot and I could not turn the page fast enough to see what would happen next.
description
Overall, I highly recommend Captivated to readers who enjoy action, romance, passion, and good old-fashioned mafia fun! With an alpha hero and his beautiful dancer, this stand-alone romance will melt your kindle and your heart. This is my first Bethany-Kris read and I can guarantee it will not be my last. I am officially hooked and cannot wait for my next Bethany-Kris read.

Aubry Clark is an interior designer who has learned to appreciate all that life has to offer. While on location for a photography shoot, Aubry is in the right place at the wrong time. Upon realizing how precarious her situation has become, it’s too late to reverse what she has witnessed. Causing Aubry to transition to survival mode, she no longer has the choice of freedom.

“Most days of life are unremarkable. They start and end with no true memory made.”


Mike Chesterfield lives on his trust fund and enjoys flying his plane as often as possible. Known as a playboy, Mike has always felt a connection to Aubry yet he’s been hesitant to act on the attraction. However, he does not foresee how his thrill-seeking activities will affect him and Aubry. Acting to protect what he knows, complications arise.

“Mike sighs and draws slow small circles on my skin. “There are two side to every story, Aub.”


What occurs between Mike and Aubry is intense as each try to make the most of their limited time together. Mike knows the danger of their situation but by trying to shield Aubry, he must hurt her and lie to the one person he cares about the most. To Aubry, Mike’s actions are contradictory and don’t add up. Though she knows the truth, others begin to question the facts causing extra tension.

“The brain is powerful. It can make us believe lies. It can sway us to remember or block out truths or fallacies. It’s a skilled illusionist.”


Told in dual POV, Aubry’s experience is vividly felt as she tries to maintain a grasp on her reality. Once she discovers Mike’s role in her situation, she can’t separate her mind and heart. As she processes the truth, Aubry isn’t willing to let it all go without a fight. For Mike, life has always been convenient for him; however, once he realizes and values what is important, his actions show his true nature. 

Going into this book, I was expecting a twisty romance suspense and I enjoyed the elements of what occurred between Mike and Aubry in the first half of the story. After it all started to settle, I did feel some character disconnect since it seems storylines from previous books better enrich the total character experience. Aubry is a strong character and I like how she accepted challenges no matter how grim or difficult. Though he is quite sexy, I wanted to know more about what makes Mike tick. 

The Best Friend is a story about trusting your gut instinct when it comes to love and life. This book would appeal to those looking for a romantic suspense with darkish elements.

Note: while this book is not part of a series, I recommend reading in order for the most fulfilling experience.

Liz’s Review~Buckled~by Pam Godwin

4-5-stars

“She’s beauty, innocence, compassion, and everything perfect in the world. No man would part with that.”

description

Buckled is the second book in the Trails of Sin Series. The series should be read in order so that every nuance of the characters and their relationships can be savored and enjoyed. In the first book of the series, Knotted, a series of tragic events forged a bond between two sets of siblings that can never broken. Buckled overlaps slightly with the timeline of Knotted. Conor and Jake are growing stronger every day and as a spunky reporter begins to make her presence known at Julep Ranch, Jarret is quick to rope her in. As Jarret begins to explore (and devour) every inch of Maybe Quinn, it becomes evident that she might be one beauty that he is not able to tame. As Jarret and Maybe grow closer together, the demons from their past continue to linger all around them. When the truth is revealed, will they have the strength to overcome?
description
description

“Love hurts. It’s an emotional abuser, insidious and manipulative, charming its way into unsuspecting hearts before beating the ever-loving shit out of the defenseless insides.”

Told in dual POV, Buckled is a complex contemporary romance with passion, tender romance, and raw unrepentant emotions. The text is all-encompassing as each moment of the plot seamlessly blends into the next. The characters care deeply for each other and their loyalty is unwavering. Both Jarret and Maybe are intense characters who complement each other in every way. In true Godwin fashion, the sexual inclinations of Jarret (so thankful for crops and ropes) stir the delicious and dirty girl living in all of us. He is a true alpha male and once he has claimed Maybe for himself he will stop at nothing to keep her safe by his side. Maybe’s determination to be her own savior only makes her that much more captivating (because honestly who doesn’t love a strong heroine?). In addition to the alluring charm of the main couple, the supporting characters continue to play a critical role in the plot. As the family awaits the release of their brother Lorne, the intensity (and intrigue) of their plight continues to magnify. Through all of the pain, pleasure, and romance one thing is certain: “Love. The most powerful healing force in the universe.” Above everything, love will always remain.
description
Overall, I highly recommend Buckled to anyone who enjoys a little dark and delicious in their read. With a dash of action, intrigue, and beautiful romance, the Trails of Sin Series is an absolute must-read. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment spent with Jarret and Maybe. Ms. Godwin is a master storyteller who always meticulously crafts her text and characters in her own unique style that is inspiring and nothing short of perfection. In short, with a complex plot and unforgettable characters, I highly recommend saddling up with this cowboy today! You do not want to miss this roundup!

Not the law.
Not our enemies.

Unless I buckle first.

In the third book of the Edge series, Caden’s demons are tested as his surroundings have the ability to recreate past trauma. Determined and detached, Caden is willing to take the risk in order to feel complete again. However, Greyson isn’t about to stand down while Caden’s mind and body are ranging a battle. Stubborn to a fault, Greyson makes certain decisions and sacrifices that are potentially destructive.

“The very things I loved about her were the things that made her difficult to keep.”

As more about Caden’s past is revealed, the balance between detachment and emotions becomes a necessity. Forced to confront what was hidden, Caden relies on Greyson to enable his healing. Faced with an enormous sense of duty, Greyson discovers factors that could inhibit or harm Caden and that’s when it all shatters.

“Sometimes you have to stop pushing. That’s all I’m saying. Let things be the way they are. You could make things worse.”

Divided into three parts, the reality of their current situation is intense and it forces the issue at hand; however, I was hoping a more emotion and more depth. With a steady pace, tension continues to escalate as the direction begins to shift to an unexpected plot point.

 

In Broken Edge, the author continues to test boundaries with her characters by showing their vulnerabilities and how love isn’t always logical. For Caden and Greyson, the struggle isn’t over and I look forward to reading how it will all end.
