So, I went through it with this one!
Marriage Games - C.D. Reiss

Marriage Games - C.D. Reiss 

 

This author took me all the way through it with this one.  I mean, my emotions were all over the place.  I would like one character, then I would hate them, then I'd go back to loving them again.  I was so trying to figure out how this thing was going to end, but I didn't quite expect the way the whole thing went down.

 

I was a bit ticked off at Adam and his whole imperiousness.  I was mad that he never just talked to Diana.  They would have been able to avoid all of this crap if the man had just communicated!  And then at the end!  GAH!!

 

There is no way I'm going to be able to stop here.  I have to know what happens.  I'm sure I'll be informed more surprises.

Kinky Bastard
Kinky Bastard - C.D. Reiss 2/5 stars

In short:
The writing itself wasn't bad. But this story just really wasn't for me. I feel like I've read this story 10 times before and I just don't care about the characters. It was okay until about 60% in, where something happens that completely ruined their relationship for me. I'm supposed to swoon for an ass who ditches her to sleep with other women and stands at 'full mast' in front of another naked woman? Even though he didn't actually sleep with her, he's an asshole and I didn't want them to end up together after that.

Not my kind of book. Though my major bookslump propably isn't helping things. Maybe I need to read a different genre for a while.

Spin
Spin - C.D. Reiss Gritty, dark, sexy and a little disturbing - all of these could be said about CD Reiss's Corruption Series. Rich society girl Therese, just on the heels of the scandal of her fiance's very pubic infidelity, meets the very guy she shouldn't pursue: Antonio, mafia capo and all-around dangerous guy... dangerous, as in people from all angles are trying to get rid of him in one way or another. But of course, he's hot and much better in bed than her previous boyfriend, but it's not just that. Stepping into Antonio's life, where death is a real possibility, is exhilarating.

But you're in no danger of spoilers in this post; I actually don't know how Therese and Antonio's story ends.

I read two of three of the books and then quit, but this was mostly out of personal preference: the stakes of the drama had spiraled a little too high for my taste. I've written about this problem in serials before: to keep the momentum, the plots often take wilder and wilder twists that push my own limits for the suspension of disbelief. But that's just me - serials are wildly popular right now, suggesting that I'm in the minority.

Spin is genre fiction, but Reiss uses some of the sparsity and aversion to cliche of literary fiction to make the reader meet the characters half way, much like good mysteries do. As someone who had spent most of her life reading literary fiction, I love to see this in romance. Especially when the book is making it to the top of Amazon lists.
