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.

RELEASE BLITZ REVIEW, EXCERPT, AND GIVEAWAY: In the Land of Gods and Monsters by Carmen Jenner

 

Title: In the Land of Gods and Monsters
Series: Gods and Monsters Duet #1
Author: Carmen Jenner
Genre: Dark Romance
Cover Design: Be Designs
Photo: Sara Eirew
Release Date: November 20, 2018
Blurb
In the land of Gods and Monsters, she was a toy. A plaything. A pet.

His pet.

Taken, stolen, beaten, used.

Pet remembers nothing before his touch, and afterward, she craves nothing more.

Sinful and merciless, Ares is her God now. He alone says when to beg, when to come, and when to kneel, but he never said anything about leaving.

Review

In the land of gods and monsters, she’s just one more kidnapped woman…one more beauty preyed upon…one more slave to break, punish, and play with…one more pet to do her master’s bidding regardless of the humiliation, the pain, or the manipulation used in her submission.

In the land of gods and monsters, she’s a pawn, a plaything, a lesser being, and she lives and breathes that inferiority every day and the fact that her body submits to her master makes her feel even more insignificant because there’s not one aspect of her imprisonment in her control, even the harsh release she feels every time he comes to play. But the hardest thing for pet to wrap her head around is the idea that, at times, he manipulates her body and her mind like a monster – one meant to feed on the torture of another, but then there are other times when he seems to be a god among men, complicating her perception of him and forcing her to feel things for him that she should have no desire to feel because, more often than not, he treats her like a whore…like a worthless vessel…like a miscreant who is meant to subject to his every whim or suffer the consequences of her decision.

Carmen Jenner allows readers to trace the path of Pet’s forced submission…of when she succumbs to the deviously demented mixture of pain and pleasure…every bruise, every slap, every spanking, and every venomous word sends Pet spiraling into a dark oblivion, but it’s the sweet torture that comes with the pain that has her follow her Master’s commands with only small bursts of fight, which means by the time he’s finished with her, she’s not going to know a lot more than just her name…her complete identity will be defined by her Master, which is a scarier situation than the one she struggles and suffers through because if she loses herself fully to Ares and allows him to not just use every part of her body as he deems fit then even if she does reclaim her freedom, she will only be a shell of the woman she was, which leaves her no better off than she is as Ares’ captive and submissive.

The fact that readers are privy to both Pet and her Master’s perspectives is as enlightening as it is mind boggling. There’s a bigger force at play in this story, but it’s not completely developed yet, so there are gaps in the information needed to truly comprehend the whys and hows of all that takes place.

I’ll admit that I didn’t really understand why the plot took a twist that it did. There was so much to deal with just between the two main characters so adding further problems to an already complicated dynamic felt unnecessary. I get that it does shed a bit of light on Pet’s Master’s past, but for the most part, it distracted me from the main story line.

Besides the deviation from the plot that I struggled with, I’m intrigued to see where Carmen Jenner takes these two characters, especially where she leaves them at the end of book 1. I’m not sure if the gods or monsters will win in the end, or if that battle isn’t the one I should be addressing because there just might be a potential victor that no one saw coming because they never bothered to look too closely.

4 Poison Apples

Excerpt

“You’re behaving like a brat,” he says through clenched teeth. “Is that the thanks I get for providing you with a bed and blankets?”

“Take them back! I don’t want them. I want out of this room.”

“You want out of this room?” Ares grabs my face with one rough hand. He leans in, his warm breath skating across my ear as his stubble grazes my cheek. “Then you have to earn it. And trust me, your bratty antics aren’t doing that.”

He releases me and walks away, pressing his hand into the keypad to unlock the door. Without another word, he leaves.

I launch off the bed and throw myself at the glass wall. He doesn’t look at me, and I know I’ll pay for my behavior later. I’ll pay this tithe in pain and bruises, in welts on my body, and in pleasure that he steals from me. For now, I circle my room like a caged animal, because that is what I am.

Caged.

I scream, bang my fists on the glass, rip my blanket from the bed and throw it at the wall. He’s almost at the staircase. I know he hears me. I know he’s keeping a tally in his head of all the things I will be punished for. Well, fuck him. I can’t do this anymore.

He’s thought of everything. All the ways I could harm him—or myself. He’s removed them all.

All except one.

I walk toward the reinforced steel door, take a deep breath, and smash my head against it. Pain, white-hot and searing, reverberates through my skull, so hard that my eyes roll in their sockets. Blood trickles down my forehead. I’m woozy, nauseous. Bile rises in my gut as if it were acid. I rear back and slam my head into the metal, harder this time.

RELEASE BLITZ: 4th and Girl by Max Monroe

4th & Girl, an all-new standalone romantic comedy in the Mavericks Tackle Love series from Max Monroe, is available now!

4th-&-girl-(cover).jpg

I’m Leo Landry, one of the best shutdown cornerbacks in the nation, and the New York Mavericks’ first round draft pick.

If James Bond spent his days running drills and his nights shutting out quarterbacks, he’d dream about being me. But professional football is on a whole other level from college, and as the new guy, I’ve got everything to prove.

No problem.

All I’ve got to do is focus, right?

Too bad life’s got other plans.

Blond hair, long lashes, and criminal blue eyes, there’s a pint-sized bombshell that I can’t stop thinking about.

I don’t even know her name, but she’s completely screwing up my game plan.

It’s too late to turn back now though. I have my eye on the prize, and I won’t settle for anything less.

4th down and only one goal in my sightsthis pretty little mystery girl.

Good thing I’m at my best when the pressure’s on.

Confessions: The Princess, The Prick, and The Priest, a fun, flirty story in the Confessions Series from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank is LIVE!

Confessions-PPP-PRINT-FOR-WEB.jpg

Everyone said our love wouldn’t work.

That it was too hard, too complicated, too messy.

Oh how I enjoy proving everyone wrong.

My men are smart, sexy, sophisticated—

and most of all, crazy about me.

The only problem is trying to explain

that to my big, opinionated Italian family.

But after all we’ve been through, we deserve a

happily ever after. And if there’s one

thing I know about my guys, they always

manage to have a few surprises up their sleeves.

My Review

Confessions #4: The Princess, the Prick & the Priest is a love letter of sorts – one that Ella Frank gives not only her loyal readers but also the three men who have dominated her head and her heart as Robbie, Julien, and Priest demanded she tell every single part of their unique love story, and I think fans of these three gorgeous and complex men wanted a seductively sexy and kinky conclusion to their series and that’s exactly what Ella Frank delivers.

Robbie, Julien, and Priest had to endure quite the maelstrom in the first three books of the series, but as their story continued from the first book to the third, readers have been privy to the ups and downs as well as the highs and lows that they had to weather through, and while there were times when it appeared that one or more of these men lost their way or found themselves drowning in the past, that’s when all three of them proved just how much stronger they are together and what they’re willing to do for one another if it means that this threesome stays in tact because it’s more than been established that they are perfect for one another, regardless of what society or anyone in their respective families or friends feel.

These three men have such different personalities, but somehow, it works, and they’ve figured out a good balance amongst themselves, which means that when peace and calm are needed, that’s able to happen and when they’re ready to play and get a little or a lot frisky with each other, they’re more than willing and able to bring the steam, and let me tell you those scenes are so hot and so sexy that I for sure couldn’t read this book in public!

I loved getting to meet and get to know Robbie’s family, and while I never doubted that they would be just as crazy and just as lovable as the princess himself, the fact that they are strong Irish Catholics made me a bit concerned, but I should have known that they would be just as unique and amazing as Robbie is, which made me love them and him even more.

I’m not ready to say goodbye to this wickedly handsome threesome, but I’ll admit, I think it has more to do with them being a part of Logan and Tate’s world, and I don’t know if I’ll ever be ready to completely let that couple go, and hopefully, I’ll never have to.

Excerpt

CHAPTER ONE

I’m not sure why everyone dreads their thirties.

As far as I’m concerned, it’s going to be

the best decade ever ~ Robbie

Six Months Later…

“LOVERS, I’M HOME,” Robbie Bianchi called out to his boyfriends, as he juggled several shopping bags in one hand and kicked the front door shut behind him. He stuffed his car keys into the pocket of his shorts, and as he evened out what he was carrying, he took the stairs that led him up to the first floor of their new home.

With the same smile on his face that he’d left with that morning, Robbie headed across the hardwood floors past the dining room, and into the kitchen, where he spotted a note waiting for him: We’re upstairs, princesse. Come find us when you get home.

Robbie grinned at the messy crown drawn above the i in princesse, but then quickly did as he was told. With one hand on the steel rail, he took the stairs two at a time, and as he reached the second floor where the bedroom was located, he walked inside to find it empty except for the fish swimming around the tank that lined the wall facing their bed.

Dropping his shopping bags on the end of the mattress, Robbie headed up to the final floor, where he knew his men were waiting for him. He opened up the glass door that led to the penthouse deck, and when he stepped outside and the warm rays washed over him, Robbie took in a breath of fresh air.

Ah, he’d always loved summer. Everything about it. The sun, the smell of the freshly cut grass, and the clothes—or lack thereof—Robbie thought, as he reached for the edge of his white tank top and drew it over his head.

As he tucked it into the back of his shorts, Robbie scanned the wide deck, his eyes roaming over the wooden slat floor, the hot tub over in the corner, and the glistening water of the lap pool surrounded by the potted greenery bordering their rooftop oasis.

This space had been the final selling point with all three of them when they’d made the decision to leave the condo after what had happened there with Jimmy. It was the perfect place for Julien to relax and do his yoga, for Priest, who loved a good soak to clear his mind, and for Robbie, for whom it was all about the calm he got from finally seeing his men happy and at peace. And that was exactly how he found one of them right now. There, stretched out on one of the sun loungers, was the brand-new reason that Robbie loved summer—an almost-naked Julien Thornton.

Dressed in tight, black, barely there swim shorts that left little—okay, nothing—to the imagination, the only other thing Julien was wearing was a pair of Aviator sunglasses. His rich, olive-colored skin was glistening with water droplets as he lay sprawled out with his hands behind his head, and oh my God was he a feast for the eyes.

As Robbie walked to the end of the lounger, his eyes roamed up Julien’s toned legs to his muscular thighs, and ended at the bulge that tight material was cupping like a glove.

Oh yes, this was hands down the best part about summer now, and luckily for Robbie and Priest, tanning was a favorite pastime of their seriously sexy Frenchman.

Bonjour, princesse.” Julien’s honey-toned voice wrapped around Robbie, informing him that he’d been caught staring. But he didn’t care—not one little bit.

“One second, please. I’m concentrating here,”Robbie said, his gaze trailing up all he could see to finally land on Julien’s face. “Now, sorry, what were you saying?”

Julien chuckled as Robbie walked alongside him. “Bonjour, princesse.”

“Oh, yes,” Robbie said, and bent down to brush a kiss across Julien’s lips. “Bonjour, Jules.”

Robbie went to straighten, but before he got too far away, Julien took hold of the back of his neck and craned up for a deeper kiss. Robbie’s lips parted, and Julien slipped his tongue inside, making Robbie’s cock jerk to attention, as he braced his hand on the back of the lounger and sank into the deliciousness that was all Julien.

COVER REVEAL: ReWined, Volume I by Kim Karr

ReWined, Volume I by Kim Karr is releasing on NOVEMBER 25th!

Check out this cover and get ready for this epic series!

ADD TO YOUR TBRhttp://bit.ly/2RShxJK

From New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr comes a brand new dramatic comedy of forbidden love and second chances.

Life is short. Time is fast.
No replay. No rewind.
That’s my motto.
And there’s nothing wrong with that.

That is until the day I turn 27 and everything changes. Suddenly, I’m expected to…

1) Move back to my hometown.
2) Stop partying.
3) Take over my family’s winery.
4) And get married.

Wait!
What?
That last one I didn’t see coming.

I’m Tyler Justin Ryan Holiday III, Northern California’s most eligible bachelor, and I don’t do monogamy. It’s just a wild guess but I’d have to say that monogamy isn’t going to do me, either.

My grandmother won’t listen to a word I have to say on the matter. And since the old battle-axe is still at the helm of my legacy, it’s not like I can blow her off. However, when she tells me whom she thinks will make the perfect bride, and then subsequently drops me at said bride’s door, I nearly lose my f*cking mind. Sure, dear old granny tries to sugarcoat the situation with a lot of glitz and glamour, but there’s no turning ash into fairy dust.

Paris Elizabeth Hollis Fairchild isn’t only the ultimate party girl and terrible wife material, she’s also my sworn enemy. We loathe each other. We have good reason. And it isn’t because our families are competitors.

Needless to say, I’m not surprised when the she-devil slams the door in my face—but it still pisses me off.

Apparently, she doesn’t know me as well as she thinks.
Doesn’t understand I’ve changed.
Doesn’t realize her rejection only spurs me on—makes me want to tame her, claim her, make her mine.

Then again, at 27 I’m no longer a lovesick teenager. I’m a grown-ass man with a big ego and an even bigger…never mind.

Paris says she doesn’t want to know how big I am, in any sense of the word.
I don’t believe her.
Either way, it doesn’t matter.

She’s a challenge I can’t resist. A temptation I can’t ignore. The woman I must have. We haven’t spoken in ten years but mark my words, she and I will be doing that and a hell of a lot more—very soon.

Life is short. Time is fast.
Replay. Rewind.
That’s my new motto.
And there’s no sugarcoating that.

***This is volume 1 in the Party Ever After series. Volume 2 will be released December 9th and Volume 3 on December 23rd.***

My Review

After finishing the collection of paranormal stories in Such Violent Delights, I’m reminded how much I adore other worldly story lines and the kickass heroines and hot as hell heroes who are part of paranormal realms.

Stacey Marie Brown – Descending Into Madness (A Winterland Tale)

This is quite a unique story. I never imagined that Alice and Scrooge would work in a book, but for some reason, Brown sells that idea and leaves me wanting more.

Chantal Fernando – Suck Me

Who doesn’t love a good vampire story, and the fact that Fernando pens this tale about a royal blood sucker and a heroine who goes head-to-head with him makes it an intriguing one. I’ve read a lot of stories by Chantal Fernando but I’ve never read one in the paranormal realm, so I’m excited to see where Fernando takes these characters and if they’ll exude the same kind of personalities that her dominating heroes and kick butt heroines have in her other series.

Jessica Florence – Hero Holiday Trials

I’ve never read a Jessica Florence story, so this gave me the perfect excuse to check out her writing and storytelling. The title definitely fits the events of the novella because the trials AJ must face to prove he’s worthy for the ‘one’ are the focus of Hero Holiday Trials.

Amelia Hutchins – Oh, Holy Knight (Wicked Knights Series)

Hutchins’ Fae series has one of my absolutely favorite book couples of all time, so I loved getting a look at what’s ahead for the paranormal worlds that she’s so good at creating. It looks like another feisty heroine and one heck of an alpha male are headed readers’ way and I can’t wait!

S.L. Jennings – Devil’s Darling (A Se7en Sinners Short)

I’m a huge fan of S.L. Jennings and her Se7en Sinners Series is one of my faves, and even though I’ll admit that I’m a Legion gal through and through that doesn’t mean that Luc hasn’t weaseled his way into my heart…there’s just something so honest about him and the fact that he sacrificed what defines him for the one who owns his blackened soul and heart makes me want him to find his own happiness.

The Devil’s Darling is a preview of what’s up next for the dastardly devil and his cohorts and while Luc continues to woo me with his wicked words, his brother is who I couldn’t get enough of and I can’t wait for more havoc to be had by them and their tagalong.

Amo Jones – DYAVOL

This tale definitely feels like an Amor Jones’ story; the fact that it consists of both angels and devils speaks volumes of Jones’ deliciously dark and deviant mind as well as her lighter side, but let’s be honest…I think it’s clear which side reigns and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

Knox & Miers – Deck the Demons (A Halfblood Huntress Prequel)

I’ve recently been introduced to this writing duo, and I’ve definitely found some new paranormal worlds that I can’t wait to experience. Readers meet Morgan and Gamble in this prequel, and I’m quite intrigued to know what’s to come for these two.

Kim Loraine – On A Cold Winter’s Night

Hopefully, this is just the beginning of Ruby and Gabe’s story because I’m very intrigued with why Ruby’s been put in Gabe’s care and if it’s a test from his Father or if there’s something else in motion as indicated at the end of the novella.

Anne Malcom – Buried Destiny

This novella is incredibly dark and twisted. This is a new-to-me author, so I’ll admit that it took me a bit to get a grasp on everything and by the time that I did, the short story was over, leaving me a bit out of sorts with what’s to come for these characters.

R. Scarlett – The Winter Solstice

The Fae World is a dangerously sexy one and R. Scarlett uses that idea and runs with it in the most sensual and devious ways. I can’t wait for more from this paranormal new-to-me author.

Alice K. Wayne – The Nutcrackers (A Breed Christmas Short)

Balor and Remy are interested characters whose story has only just begun. I’m not quite sure what’s going to happen to these two because we aren’t privy to too many details yet, but this novella will definitely make readers want to see what happens to these two.

Overall Rating: 4 Poison Apples

RELEASE BLITZ AND REVIEW: Let There Be Light by A.M. Johnson

Title: Let There Be Light
Series: Twin Hearts Duet #1
Author: A.M. Johnson
Genre: Coming-of-Age/New Adult/MM
Release Date: November 16, 2018
Blurb

His world was water and rhythm.  Hard work and drive kept Royal O’Connell one step ahead of his competition. His spot on the swim team, keeping his scholarship, was the only plan that mattered.

His world was ebony and ivory. Natural talent and ambition set Camden Morgan apart from the other music majors. His dedication scoring him a full ride.

Normally, their paths would have never crossed….

But when Royal meets his best friend’s new roommate, his big plan and Camden’s controlled environment faces a variable that could destroy it all.

Attraction.

The world they live in had no room for error. That undeniable pull between them was dangerous and neither one of them could’ve prepared for the choice they’d have to make.

Love isn’t always an easy road and, when everything they’ve worked for is on the line, they’ll have to decide if being together is worth the risk.

Coming-of-Age romance stories always resonate with me because as a high school English teacher, I see so many young adults trying to figure out who they are, what they want, and what matters to them. And in a society and an environment like the one we all live in, it’s difficult to watch these students struggle to find their own voice amidst the noise and feel comfortable enough to be who they are despite the prejudice and intolerance they may encounter due to any of the attributes and/or feelings that make them who they are.

Royal O’Connell and Camden Morgan’s families couldn’t be more different – one is full of love, affection, and acceptance while the other doesn’t seem to have any support or heartfelt connection, which makes for an incredibly lonely life. But regardless of their backgrounds, Royal and Cam are both driven to succeed and their determination and abilities have not only allowed them to chase their individual goals, but it’s also provided them with the opportunity for their paths to cross, creating a connection that both want and need despite the difficulties that may arise due to their feelings for one another.

Because A.M. Johnson allows readers to experience all parts of Royal and Cam’s journey with them from their initial meeting to their burgeoning friendship to a bond that becomes a lifeline to both men, we are able to see exactly what these two come to mean to each other and why they’re willing to endure intolerance, prejudice, and backlash in order to live in the light with one another.

Let There Be Light is an emotional story – one that realistically portrays the ups and downs as well as the highs and lows that occur when outside interference makes the characters question who they are and what they want – two things that they’re still attempting to figure out on their own already; it’s an honest look at exactly how difficult it is for people to find their footing in this tumultuous and prejudicial world, but even though it’s not easy, it’s beyond clear that it’s worth it; people just need to be willing to work for it regardless of the obstacles in their way. 

I can’t wait for Indie and Kai’s story – the second book in the Twin Hearts Duet. I’m not quite ready to let these characters go, so the fact that there’s more to come is quite exciting.
