REVIEW: Crowne Rules by C.D. Reiss

“Dante is a Dominant male hero who steals your breath in all the right ways.” —Joey W. Hill

Crowne Rules, an all-new DELICIOUSLY Decadent froced proximity standalone from New York Times bestselling author C.D. Reiss is available now!


 I’ve really enjoyed the Crowne series and the way each brother, so far, has met his match in a woman who is quirky and interesting and seemingly polar opposite of them. In the case of Crowne Rules Mandy and Dante are the best blend of hot mess and managed chaos.

As with all CD Reiss novels, the prose is spare and it’s something I’ve always appreciated. I don’t have to wade through a bunch of flowery text to get to the heart of who her characters are or what their issues are. In this particular novel the I'll admit that there were times that the novel sometimes felt too spare. Like I felt like I was missing a little chunk of who each of them were or what was at the center of what was driving them. And maybe if I didn’t enjoy reading them so much or want to know them more, I wouldn’t have noticed. But I did and therefore I wanted a little more of the blanks filled in. That being said, I still wholeheartedly enjoyed this novel.

Crowne Rules is a mix of naughty and sweet. It’s like if one of the Corruption series books and one of the Hollywood books hooked up and had a book baby—part wonderfully smutty and part tender and sweet. 

What happens when fire and ice are forced into close proximity?

With the paparazzi hot on her heels, Mandy Bettencourt is desperate for somewhere to hide, and her best friend has just the place.

It’s perfect. No Internet. No phone. A deep bathtub she’s soaking in when HE shows up.
Her best friend’s brother, Dante Crowne. Rich as a cardinal sin and handsome enough to piss off the devil. A man with a reputation for unforgettable bedroom games.

Mandy got an early taste of them in high school--for seven minutes in a closet. She can tell you, the rumors are all true.

Dante knows he’s got a reputation for a lot of things, including a love of solitude.
But there’s a beautiful socialite in his bathtub, and the memory of those seven minutes isn’t inspiring him to kick her out.
So he offers her a deal.
If she wants to stay, she has to work.
If she makes a mistake, she’s corrected with pink hand marks on her backside.

That’s the deal.
Beg for it or leave it.

He’s surprised when she gets on her knees, and he’s even more surprised when she likes the punishment.
The most shocking thing, though, is how much he’s starting to like her.

They can’t stay in paradise forever.
Los Angeles awaits.
But an old nemesis sets his sights on tearing them apart, and Dante may be the one left begging.

**Crowne Rules is a complete STANDALONE. You don’t have to read any of the Crowne Brothers books to pick this up, but you might want to once you’re done with Dante.**

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.
