“If you like an erotic, angsty tale then this is going to be the start of a series that, no doubt, you will love. Personally, I don’t like erotic angsty tales.”
~ Under the Covers

Do you ever pick up books that are completely out of your comfort zone? I like to do it sometimes and that’s exactly why I picked up this book. I have never read C.D. Reiss before because, frankly, I didn’t think I would like it. But, I have had a few books surprise me this year so I thought I would give this novella a chance.

Well, it just goes to show that you do know your own tastes very well. I wasn’t into this book. If you like an erotic, angsty tale then this is going to be the start of a series that, no doubt, you will love. Personally, I don’t like erotic angsty tales. They irritate rather than titillate. Because of this, I could appreciate why other people enjoy this series, sadly for me it just didn’t land.spacer

About C.D. Reiss

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.

Hmmmm….I have found I like some of her books, others-not so much…don’t give up on her!


Occasionally, I enjoy some angst but only if it’s done well.


I’m not sure this can count as a “review.” I have absolutely no idea what this book is about, only that there’s angst.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts on it Suzanne.
