! JESSICA & SHARON, part 3.5 of 7. A priceless glimpse into the enigma that is playboy & mogul Jonathan Drazen!

“There were too many fires to put out. Too many pieces to move across the chessboard.”

Songs of Submission is the whirlwind saga of aspiring singer Monica Faulkner and hotelier and real estate magnate Jonathan Drazen. Books/novellas should be read in order:
Book 1: Beg
Book 2: Tease
Book 3: Submit
Book 3.5: Jessica & Sharon
Book 4: Control
Book 5: Burn
Book 5.5: Rachel

The world through Jonathan Drazen's eyes.

This is a little gem of a novella.... in CD's words, '...things are revealed here that will become important later." It's offered as an optional read but in my opinion it is a MUST read.....

"I knew she was special the night I met her, I just didn't know how special."

"I could pass a lot of time with her." He say's the most beautiful things

Please do NOT miss the opportunity to glimpse inside Jonathan's head..

I want to give this one five stars...because it's my favorite so far....I LOVE being inside the male's head. This super short story takes place directly after Tease, but I believe is supposed to be read after the first "sequence" ending with Submit

There are two small parts to this little ditty. The first is what happens when Jonathan goes to Jessica's house after the art show, and the events that lead to a HUGE revelation for him. I was over the MOON reading about his come to Jesus moment in whi

It reveals how he dealt with 2 scenes from Submit. It's FABULOUS to see his perspective and how he deals with complicated situations. It was short and sweet and to me, very insightful to the man called Jonathan Drazen.

All the novellas are contained in, book 8, Dominance. Make sure you read them in the order GRs has set up or you might miss something or get spoilers.

Jessica is, of course, Jonathan's ex wife and we get Jonathan's POV (thank goodness) regarding the scene after the art show when he went to her house.

It was better than I thought it would be although it broke my heart about him wanting to be normal.

Sharon's story, well...I don't want to spoil it for you but obviously, she is someone who is
Seeing the world through Jonathan's eyes was an absolute treat!

(Warning: This review contains spoilers if you haven't read the first three books in the Songs of Submission series - Beg, Tease, & Submit)

Novellas like this are proof of a writer's commitment to their audience. We could have been left with the cryptic and vaguely unsatisfying story which Monica heard... But instead we were treated to the inside of Jonathan Drazen's head - Thank you C.D. Reiss!

This is a quickie mini-nouvella that gives us a background into Jonathan and events that take place after the Eclipse art show that faithful night he simply dropped Monica off at home. Did he go home to prepare for his trip to San Francisco or did he "make a stop?"

We get background to his changing feelings with Jessica, his ah-ha moment in their failed marriage, and decisions he makes w

Jessica and Sharon is a supplement story told from Jonathan's POV.

Jonathan tells his side of the story behind what happened to Jessica when he (view spoiler).
"Well, honestly, this is the last time I'm coming running. I'm done. And I'm sorry I had my foot in your yard for so long."

Jonathan also gives us perspective on what happened between him and Sharon.

The Songs of Submission is a mini-series told in seven parts with an additional 2 'novellas'. Part 2

4 Stars!!!

This one was really short but NECESSARY!!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that we got Jonathan's POV in this one!!
It was much needed!!!
We learn what happened the after the art exhibit between Jonathan and Jessica.
Let's just say he's not completely innocent and Jessica is definitely an evil bitch but she wasn't completely lying to Monica either.
She's definitely not for Jonathan and I think he's starting to realize this.

Also we get inside Jonathan's head and learn how he was ins

You naughty boy Nathaniel!

I read this after book 4 and realized you didn't fess up completely! You were slightly confused, so I can forgive you a little, BUT I don't think Monica will do it as easily!

Loved this insight, plus his bombshell about moving people in his life around like a chess game really has me thinking that ....(view spoiler)

My only complaint to this short novella, was that it was way too short! I loved getting a brief glimpse into Jonathon's mind and how he is feeling about the situation with Monica. It was also a nice eye opener as to what happened when he went to his ex-wife's place after his and Monica had made the agreement to be monogamous.

Jonathon also goes to tell the lady named Sharon, that he is finished with her as well. We get a tease of what lead him into his acceptance of his Dominant personality. Shar

I'm so into this story that even though I'm not a believer of the .5's books in any series, I figured, if I'm doing this I might as well do it right and read all the books. Well my theory proves me right once again because I really didn't care too much for this one. What it is, is the re-telling of the scene after the art gala when Jonathan drops off Monica and goes to meet with Jessica, but told from his POV, and then he goes to San Francisco and meets with Sharon and we learn a li

Jessica and Sharon are two scenes from Submit from Jonathan's POV. I recommend reading after Submit (book 3).

It's good to see you weren't lying Jonathan....

C.D Reiss? I just want to say that you are fan-fucking-tastic!!

Getting into Jonathan's head was AMAZING.

I lov hearing his voice and it was just a joy for some clarity! I liked how he handled Jess (who I hate with a blazing passion!)

Seriously, I can't stand woman who want to take away half of a man's masculinity. She must not know how adventurous and how fucking sexy it is to have a real man dominate *wipes drool* I mean, dangit how stupid can Jessica get...denying Jonathon like that??

So happy to find out what really happened when Jonathan went to Jessica's house.

I suspected that Jonathan did buy Kevin's whole Monica installation so that was cool to get confirmation that I was right.

I loved getting Jonathan's POV. It's sometimes hard to get a read on him outside the sex scenes and these went a long way of showing some of his feelings! Excellently done...again in so few pages.

Alex is The Romance Fox
A short novella, which is told from Jonathan’s POV and gives us his view on what happened at his ex-wife’s place after his first date with Monica and also a brief glimpse into his casual relationship with his part-time submissive, Sharon.

I disliked Jessica, his ex-wife a lot. She’s such a cold and manipulative woman and am so happy that Jonathan finally sees what she’s really like.

We get a bit of his life as a dominant and the part that Sharon played in his life. I really felt for Sharon – she’s

Didn't care for this one as much.....It didn't add much to the story for me....It only gave me minor additional details to the story. It wasn't written bad just didn't amaze me or anything.

I'm glad I picked up this short one from Jonathan's POV. It took place after he dropped off Monica at her house after the Eclipse show and he subsequently went off to met his ex-wife, Jessica. Finally, a little tidbits into his past.

Then we also got to met Sharon, the submissive he engaged in San Francisco. I thought their friendship was kind of nice.

What a nice surprise hearing Jonathan's POV. He really does have a lovely voice. This "song" provides much needed clarity and affirmation that Jonathan wants Monica and needs her, perhaps more so than she needs him. She is his perfect sub, whether he wants to admit it or not. But he also respects her and her talent, and loves her laughter and her company. There's so much packed into just a few pages. This Song of Dominance is not optional as the author states, this is Mandatory reading or ...more

This is a short novella that is in Jonathan's POV from two scenes in Submit. It was great to finally get in his head to see where his thoughts were with Monica and the "other women" in his life.
