REVIEW: Iron Crowne by C.D. Reiss

IC - RB banner

“Beyond sexy, beyond stunning, and Byron Crowne is the alpha of the year!

Iron Crowne is CD Reiss at her potent, powerful best!”

—Sierra Simone, USA Today bestselling author

Iron Crowne, an all-new wickedly sexy and addicting enemies to lovers standalone from New York Times bestselling author CD Reiss, is available now!



Shel: I really enjoy going into C.D. Reiss novels without a clue as to what I'm getting myself into. There aren't many writers that I can blindly one click and trust that I'm going to get an engaging read that pushes all of my buttons but Reiss is one of them. I've  come to know that no matter what she's writing, she's going to put me in a world that I find wildly entertaining and of course that's exactly what I found when I read Iron Crowne. Court: Exactly. C.D. Reiss has a gift, and it keeps giving to us in the form of beautiful novels that we cannot help but devour and demand more. Shel introduced me and never looked back and we have zero regrets every single time! We love when she gives us more! 

Shel: Before I go too much further let me establish two things:

1. This novel is a stand alone--so no cliffhangers (whew!).
2. I had a ton of fun reading this novel and if you love Reiss or you're brand new to her novels, I think you will have fun reading this one too. 

Shel: Now that those things are out of the way, let me just say OMFGWTF with these characters. They drove me crazy (in the best possible way). I was so torn. The iamfeministhearmeroar part of me was all RAWR look at you, you bad ass Olivia, you. Give him hell. Tear him to pieces. (The 'him' being Byron--her sexy hot nemesis). Then as I watched what seemed like a train wreck happening right in front of my face when it came to her I was all "NOOOOOOO. STOP. WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!!" *facepalm* *facepalm* *facepalm* GAH. You can imagine how strange it was to have that intense feeling while also wanting her to capitulate to her horndog wants and needs and desires because I knew it was going to be so good and hot and dang girl, get you some. GAH. Court: THIS is why I love reading these books. Reactions like these, y'all, are divine. Shel is so right. The story was captivating, and these characters hooked us right where we like it. I love her world building, and I love her characters and I love a strong female character who makes us feel all of her feels! 

Shel: Quite a mashup of emotions... and that was before I even got to know Byron that well. So you can guess that once his POV was woven into the narrative, I got even more invested in what was going to happen and how it would all go down. He was equally maddening. The push and pull and emotional pretzeling he did to himself and to her were so not necessary, BYRON. WHY MUST YOU FIGHT SO HARD BYRON. JUST GIVE IN TO YOUR EMOTIONS. Le sigh. Court: HAHA! Amen, sister. I suppose stories wouldn't seem so interesting if they did adult things and made adult decisions and were rational all of the time...but they love to twist our insides up with fighting it...sigh, is right!

Shel: These two + their families + their stories before they met were interesting and just the perfect storm of conflict and emotion (and sexy times). I was fully engaged and absorbed and I'm sincerely hoping we see ALL of the Crownes and both of Olivia's friends have stories of their own. I love a good spin off and I feel like this book has so many characters left to explore. BUY THIS BOOK and you can thank us later. Court: YES! BUY IT so she will keep writing us all of the beautiful and amazing books! I too would not say no to more in this world...hint, hint.

Byron Crowne is a charming liar and a gorgeous monster.
I detest him.
I can't resist him.
He’s awakened desires I didn’t know I had.
When he touches me, I need to fight him . . . and I need him to win.
Our one night stand bruises my skin and leaves dents in the walls, but the sheets aren't the only thing we shred that night.
And suddenly, the stakes are higher than ever.
Olivia Monroe lights a fire in me that died a long time ago.
I’m a different man when I’m with her. I need to own her, take her, mark her as mine.
Everything changes when she might be pregnant and for the first time in my life . . . I’m powerless against this stubborn, untamable woman.
She’s the one in control and I have an impossible job:
Prove I’m worthy to be a father.

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.
