What you’re breaking isn’t some little, meaningless coupling. We aren’t some casual fuck, and we never were. Not from the first night. Not from the first time I laid eyes on you. You were built for me. I denied it as long as I could, but we were meant to be together. You are the sea under my sky. We’re bound at the horizon.

I read this book in one sitting.

My eyes are a little bleary.
My finger nails are… well, gone.
My thoughts are a mess.
My emotions are splinters on the hardwood floor.

It’s going to happen to you too, you know. Once you read this, you’ll be just like me.

Because it’s just that fucking good.

I loved this part of Monica's and Jonathan's story!

Both they enjoy being together.
Both they enjoy their games.
But they need to understand what being a submissive and what being a dominant means.
Jonathan thinks that he knows, but he doesn't.
Monica definitely doesn't know what it means.
They need to build trust.

The series shifts into high gear with the fourth book. Outside forces are threatening to tear the couple apart, but it's one act of honest artistic expression which could shatter them both. I am completely enthralled with the Songs of Submission Series...
He was the ache between my legs, the desire in my belly, the tingle on my skin, the very embodiment of my gratification.

Now we are getting into the nitty gritty of Jonathan and Monica's relationship. They both have come to understand how the other works and they both want to be together.

I really liked how romantic Jonathan was in this story...and I liked getting some more answers. Of course, we don't get all the answers but it's enough for now. And thank goodness we are finally getting his POV included in the stories!

She sipped easily into play and out again, becoming her witty, intelligent self seamlessly. She wasn't intimidated by me. She teased and challenged me. She kissed like she meant it, and from the very first night, she enjoyed fucking without reservation or shame.
Monica was, in a word, perfect.

This book continues on from where book 3 left off. The great thing about this one is we get to be in Jonathan's head as well as Monica's. The story that is Jonathan is slowly starting to unravel itself and we are getting underneath the rich playboy persona.

This the fourth instalment in the Songs of Submission series and we take off from where we left Jonathan and Monica in Submit. It was definitely my absolute favourite so far, the storyline just keeps me wanting more and the series gets better and better with each new novella.

In a world saturated with erotica novels that are so one-dimensional, C.D. Reiss' work feels like a breath of fresh air! My sincere thanks for that, C.D.!

I have to agree with a lot of my friends who've read this series.
It keeps getting better with each passing book!!

Control, so far is my favorite.
We get inside of Jonathan's head more in this one.
I loved the alternating POVs between Jonathan and Monica.


The sex is hotter than ever and boy does this book make being a submissive sound really enticing.
Jonathan is obviously in deep with Monica, he's a fool if he thinks he can just walk away from her.

Great opening line – we find Monica trembling on the floor of a lingerie store, with her hand between her legs, taking commands from Jonathan over the phone. #HOT

Control is the first part of the second sequence of Songs of Submission. The whole dynamic of the story has changed. Jonathan has finally let go of the crippling heartbreak of his marriage break up and Jessica no longer casts a lengthy shadow over his life. He’s moved on and he wants to move on with Monica.

This review is going to be short and sweet. Not because it doesn’t deserve a beautiful and well written review but because there are so many amazing reviews already written that have said it all.

The Songs of Submission series is AMAZING. It is BEAUTIFUL. It is EROTIC. It is BREATHTAKING. It is INTRIGUING. It is EMOTIONAL. And what is most important (to me anyways) is that it is WELL WRITTEN, FRESH and ENGAGING.

This series gets better and better with each novella.

“Get on your knees.”
That’s the first line of this book. Nice way to start I think. Jonathan gives Monica the command over the phone as she’s trying on garter belts in a lingerie store. Needless to say this scene is HOT!!



Monica has grown more comfortable in her “submissive” role and her sexual relationship with Jonathan, but is still determined to make it own her own when it comes to her career.

In this fourth installment of the Songs of Submission series, Jonathan really begins to show his power...both financial power and his hold over Monica. Monica has accepted her submissive nature, albeit reluctantly, but she seems to be embracing the loss of inhibitions that she now has when she gives control over to her "king".

But Jonathan learn something a bit disturbing that convinces him that Monica needs to be taken care of more than even he realized. Of course, he can't just tell her what's

I can tell you that they were getting better and better, their chemistry was off the chart, there were layers peeled one by one and they are going to be revealed more.
