NEW RELEASE & REVIEW: Coda by CD Reiss


Will Jonathan and Monica get their happily ever after?
Find out in CD Reiss’s newest release!

Shel: After the last book in this series, I was a little nervous. CD Reiss gives zero fucks about what people expect and she just goes for it--whatever it is those characters need from her, she writes it. Need a major character known for his strength to have a heart transplant? NO PROBLEM. sheeit. So, knowing that was what I'd dealt with in the past, can you see why I was a little anxious going in? Turns out I was right to be nervous but ....I felt completely mollified by the end. 

I don't really know what to say without being spoilery so here's a collection of my thoughts:

  • one of Jonathan's sisters nailed it when she said they were suffering from post traumatic stress (but honestly, weren't we all after the last book? I KID. sorta)
  • the depth of love and desire to protect was lovely and unwavering
  • loved the glimpses of secondary characters
  • the sexy/heat factor was high (but honestly, their love and fear and hope far outweighed that for me)
  • the fears each of them carried were so painful and raw and hurtful and sad and I'm glad they weren't prettied up--it felt right
This book just reiterated why I enjoy CD Reiss' books. She seemingly has no fear about putting her readers/characters through their paces. She does what feels right to the characters and not just what would placate the rest of us. The ending to this series was just what it needed to be, in my opinion, and while we had to work for that HEA..it was exactly right for Jonathan and Monica.





Coda is NOW AVAILABLE!





Did you want a pat little ending about Jonathan and I riding off into the sunset? Did you want flowers and stars? Man, I wish it was all soft filters and violins. I wish we could fight about who cleaned the bathroom or who was cooking dinner. But I knew I was never destined for simple contentment.

I almost committed murder for him. I almost tore us apart to save him. How do you get back on the horse after that? Because, I promise you, nothing is the same. Nothing.

I’ve earned our happily ever after. Now I have to survive it.


An excerpt

“You know what, Monica, you don’t even know yourself. Look at you. I haven’t seen you this relaxed in months. The only time you let your worry go is when you give me control. And your worry is what keeps you from being honest.”
I swallowed. Blinked. A torrent of wetness welled behind my eyes, “I don’t want to break the scene.”
“Stay still. Stay naked. Speak your mind.”
“I almost died with you a hundred times. That recovery room, they had you in this induced coma and you looked dead. There were bags of blood. Bags, hanging over you and you were all opened up. And, I’m sorry, I haven’t said this because you’re the one who went through it.” I swallowed a gallon of tears. “I don’t want to see you like that again. But I think about it all the time. I dream about it. I see it when I close my eyes. I want you to live, so I do what I think is going to make you happy and I always get it wrong. Stay or go. I give you attention or none. It’s always wrong.”
“What about your happiness?”
“It doesn’t matter. Not as much as yours. It’s not life or death.”
“It is, Monica. It is.”
I shook my head. “You can’t convince me of that. We can do this hurtful honesty thing all day. You’re the priority and I’m okay with that. Deal with it.”
He nodded, looking down for a blink, then up at me. He reached for my wrists.
“These go behind your back.”
I did as instructed.
“Now, get on your knees.”
I bent them. With my hands behind my back, it was hard to balance.
“Do you need some help?” he asked.
“Yes.”
I thought he’d take me gently by the elbow, but dragged me down. He was right. I was relaxed, totally submitting and trusting him, loving every bit of discomfort he dished out.
“Spread your knees apart.”
I did, too slowly for him. He kicked them wide.
“Do you remember your safeword?” He asked, unbuckling his belt.
“Yes.” A tingling rush went down my spine with the promise of his dominance and the way it made me forget how fragile he really was.
His cock was out in the next second. “Open. Your. Mouth.”

About the Author

CD Reiss is a USA Today and Amazon 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 embed TV story structure in her head well enough for her to take a big risk on a TV series structured erotic series called Songs of Submission. It’s about a kinky billionaire hung up on his ex-wife, an ingenue singer with a wisecracking mouth; art, music and sin in the city of Los Angeles.

Critics have dubbed the books “poetic,” “literary,” and “hauntingly atmospheric,” which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think she’s some sort of braggart who’s too good to give the toilets a once-over every couple of weeks or chop a cord of wood.

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