“My new obsession. I’m eating every word of this series and begging for more.”
— Alessandra Torre, New York Times bestselling author
New York Times Bestseller CD Reiss goes back to her roots with a dark, intense tale that breaks boundaries and shatters expectations in Rough Edge.
Who do you love?
The decent man you married?
The surgeon shattered during the war?
The emotionless Dominant who appears in his eyes more and more often?
All of them?
Even when he breaks you?
Even when he makes you beg?
Is there no pain or pleasure he cannot deliver?
What will you sacrifice to heal him?
Will he sacrifice his sanity to protect you from the exquisite torture of his cruel hands?
This is more than a marriage.
It’s a crack at the edges of the mind and heart.
It’s a promise written in the heavens and a wound splitting the sky.
Love may be the death of both of you.

About the Author:
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.

I can’t save myself from the Cloister, and maybe I never could. The Prophet grows more dangerous by the day. His delusions are steeped in blood, and if I’m not careful, that blood will be my own. Despite the growing risk, I still continue the search for the truth, no matter if the thorny path eventually twists back to Adam, guilt in his dark eyes. I’ve seen glimpses of his soul, and I know there is more to him than the monster, but it’s so hard to reach him. I knew when I came here that I’d have to fight, I just didn’t realize the war would be waged on so many fronts.
Author’s Note: If you have a trigger, this book will pull it.
5 “Gimme the Next Book Now” Stars
When I finished The Maiden, I had ALL. THE. QUESTIONS. My anticipation for this book was so high; I was like a toddler expecting candy. I needed it NOW.
From the first page, it was intense. The author doesn’t hold anything back; the answers you are looking for are here and will have your jaw-dropping in shock. Heavenly Ministries’ depravity is on full display, and with it Adam and Delilah’s feelings for each other. Noah and Grace’s moments in the book are revelatory and had me looking at them both differently. And the Prophet? He is diabolical. Just plain evil.
And that ending…
I may have had plans to savor this book, but it was too edge-of-your-seat. I HAD to keep reading. So, naturally, I gobbled this up in one day. Make sure you clear your schedule for this one. You won’t be able to put it down.
Note: I’ve deliberately made this review as spoiler-free as possible. This book is best read without knowledge of the twists in the plot. Beware of spoilers.

I joined the Cloister to find the truth. But I’ve discovered so much more, and the darkness here is seducing me, pulling me down until all I can think of is him. Adam Monroe, the Prophet’s son, a dark prince to an empire that grows by the day. He is tasked with keeping me safe from the wolves of the outside world. But the longer I stay at the Cloister, the more I realize the wolves are already inside and under the Prophet’s control. If Adam discovers the real reason I’m here, he’ll bay for my blood with the rest of them. Until then, I will be Delilah, an obedient servant of the Prophet during the day and Adam’s Maiden at night.

Bane, the highly-anticipated next standalone in the Sinners of Saint Series by L.J. Shen is LIVE
Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud.
Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living.
Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all—looking humbled.
Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally—I cut boys from my life. Permanently.
Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies.
Hot as hell, cold as ice.
I wasn’t aware of her existence until a fat, juicy deal landed in my lap.
She’s a part of it, a little plaything to kill some time.
She is collateral, a means to an end, and a side-bonus for striking a deal with her oil tycoon stepdad.
More than anything, Jesse Carter is a tough nut to crack.
Little does she know, I have the f****** teeth for it.

KNOTTED, Book #1 in the TRAILS OF SIN series
Genre: Dark Cowboy Romance
Series: HEAs with no cliffhangers. Each book is a different couple. Must be read in order.
I try to forget her.
Growing up together, Conor and I shared all our firsts.
First love, first kiss, first…
Not all our firsts.
We were sixteen the night she was violently assaulted while I helplessly watched.
I’ll never forget the sounds of her suffering.
Or my inconsolable agony when she left Oklahoma.
Years later, she returns to honor our teenage pact.
Except the boy she loved is gone, replaced by a ruthless cattle rancher knotted with secrets.
She doesn’t know my dark cravings or the trails of sin that lead to her.
I don’t deserve her, but one truth remains.
Growing up on the Julep Ranch in Oklahoma was a bucolic life for twins Jake and Jarrett, and siblings Connor and Lorne. The four were thick as thieves, but Jake and Connor had something special. Since they were knee-high to a grasshopper, they have been childhood sweethearts with big plans for their future. He would run the family cattle ranch, and she would fulfill her dream of being a veterinarian.
They had shared all of their first, except one. And they made plans for that too.
But the night that should have been filled with love turned into horror as Connor is violently raped while Jake, Jarrett, and Lorne are forced to watch. What follows is a hurricane of pain and questionable decisions that leave you wondering what is really going on with this family.
The first half of this book held me riveted. Jake and Connor’s love and pain were tangible things, and I was all in emotionally with Connor. She portrayed realistic emotions and behavior with what she was going through. And what she went through wrecked me.
The first half of this book is easily a five-star read for me.
While I liked Jake at the beginning of the book and wholeheartedly believed in his love for Connor, I had some trouble with him in the second half of the book. I found his “therapy” for Connor’s triggers/trauma, and how quickly and efficiently it worked, exceptionally naive and difficult for my suspension of disbelief to swallow. I also didn’t like that his solution for everything that was happening essentially took her choice away. Considering everything that happens over the course of the book, I would have loved to see her have more agency (especially over her “therapy”).
Overall, this is an emotional powerhouse of a story. Painful and gripping, Knotted is a tragic love story that you can’t look away from. If you like a dark read with a side of kinky cowboys, give this one a try. And with how this one ends, I can’t wait to see what Jarrett gets up to in book two.
*PLEASE NOTE: This book has significant triggers.
