"You’re mine. The minute I told you to spread your legs and you did it, you were mine. When I told you to beg for it and you did, you were mine. When you put your hands behind your back without being told, I owned you."

No. God, no.

My name is Monica, and no matter what Jonathan says, I am not submissive.

Book #3 of what is fast becoming one of my favorite erotic series!!!! It just keeps getting better and better with each installment!!!
“My name is Monica, and I am not submissive. I stand six feet tall in heels. I am descended from one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. I can sing like an angel, and growl like a lion. I am not owned. I am music.”

These books just keep getting better and better! I know I'm a bit late to the game with this series, but I am so glad I read them. They don't fit the mold of a typical bdsm/erotica novel which I appreciate greatly. *Kicks self for not reading CD Reiss sooner*

Jonathan and Monica continue to navigate their relationship and the going has not been easy. A vindictive ex-wife and personal emotional issues stand in the way of them taking their relationship to the next step. Plus tragedy

With his face beneath me, falling apart under his own pleasure, I knew something for sure, and I whispered it to myself as he came. I love you, I love you, I love you.

Oh this is getting better and better!

This book has both a tragic storyline and a funny storyline.

1. Gabrielle should know that she can't mix medication with alcohol.
2. Monica should know that it is not the worst thing in the world being a submissive.

Jonathan will take of her and now I have started liking him.

After a misunderstanding between Jonathan and Monica, which Jessica caused, Monica finally agrees to talk to Jonathan about it. And of course by talking, I mean going at each other and talking during sex to get everything "worked out."

After having to deal with what Jessica implied when she came to the club, Monica isn't exactly happy to talk to Jonathan. In fact, she makes him work to smooth things over.

Unfortunately, Monica is having a few other problems in her life as well. Gabby's acting more and more depressed and her happiness literally hangs on to whether or not they get signed by an agency. Things literally could not get any worse. I did not see what happened coming and poor Monica is just devastated.

If you read my review for the second book in this sequence; 'Tease', then you'll know I was more than a tad angry with some of the characters so I started this book spoiling for a fight but OMG I didn't expect my anger to turn to tears and my heart to feel it was being ripped from chest.

Started and finished this right quick last night...it was kind of impossible to stop reading.

There are a couple of things that really impress me about this series so far:

1. I very much like both the hero AND the heroine. Not only together, but as separate people, and it's amazing the difference that makes in my reading experience. Jonathan is the proverbial rich guy with a Very Important Job and a slew of expensive cars, a gorgeous home, and servants to take care of his every need. BUT...he al

When I grow up, I want to be C.D.Reiss! For real!

Talk about having a knack for weaving a great story filled with fantastic characters!!! Seriously! C.D.'s novellas read like 400+ pages novels because her writing style is that brilliant & she doesn't seem to waste her (and ours!) time filling pages with irrelevant content for the sake of filling them. She manages to get her story across by not beating around the bush and getting straight to the point.

Adore Monica.

Whew! This just keeps getting better and better. Jonathan is probably going to end up being a book husband for me. Gosh everything he says and does is just sinfully, wickedly, enticingly hot. So move over Christian and Gideon...Jonathan is slowly claiming my heart.

I am not submissive. My name is Monica, and I am not submissive. I stand six feet tall in heels. I am descended from one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. I can sing, like an angel, and growl like a lion. I am not owned. I am music.

Monica fears if she submits she'll lose herself.

This is the third installment in the series, and it ends "Sequence #1." How this series works is that there are three short stories in each Sequence; when the third story is finished there is one very short novella before the next Sequence of three more stories continue.

As I continue to fall in love/lust with Jonathan and Monica's story I must admit that this book was very emotional for me, what I'd been fearing happened; but as much as my heart broke for Monica and her friend I was so amazed at how Jonathan came through for her, I adore the man, he's definitely book husband material.

I'm loving Jonathan a little more after reading each book.
What a Hot & Confident Alpha Male!!



We see a different side of Jonathan in this installment.
His tender side.
The man knows how to take care of his woman and I believe not only has Monica fallen in love with him, but that he feels the same.
