Until the world can know you belong to me, I will not kiss you.

I'm going to be inches away, at your side. I'm going to whisper in your ear and put my breath on your neck, but the heat of my skin will not feel the shudder of yours until you commit yourself to me completely an

She tried to walk away from him.

He knew she would.

He also knew that she’d come back.

And she did.

But Jonathan doesn’t play games.

Not before he shows her how to play, that is.

OMFG.......Jonathan you have ruined me for all my other book boyfriends......


This was such a hard review to write because firstly I've been left almost speechless by how freakin awesome this book was, and secondly I like to ensure my reviews are all spoiler free so I don't ruin any part of this amazing series for other readers.

So with that in mind I think it's fair to say I was more than a little impatient to get my hands on this instalment. But I was

It's been a while since I last sank my teeth into the Songs of Submission series, for some reason I stopped in the middle and didn't pick it up. Well, I'm baaaacccckkkkk and loving Jonathon and all of his domineering and stalkerish ways (that just seem to work in this series).

The story of Jonathan and Monica continues. This time they invaded my homeland, a.k.a. Canada (EH??), so how can I NOT like this instalment??

This one fell a bit flat for me. I think the gist of my thoughts is that the series feels a bit directionless. There is a lot happening, but I don't see they WHY of it all. The story with Kevin and his weird little sick obsession should be getting more attention, I would think. And the fact that Jonathan is allowing Monica to work with him still...and not telling her things that she should really know about sort of blows my mind. (view spoiler) ...more

Monica is struggling with her potential fame and becoming "Bondage Girl" because of the song she has written. She doesn't want to be the image of submissive females so she has steered clear of Jonathan for two weeks after she walked away from him.

Jonathan wants her back and needs to convince her to be with him. He wants a full commitment with her and he promise

Monica almost burned it all to ashes in this installment.


I cannot say much about what happens in Burn without spoiling it.

Jonathan is a known kinky dominant. His ex wife made sure to make the world know his sexual ways are anything but vanilla. He draws something out of Monica that she craves but does she want a life with that stigma? Does she want to be labelled Bondage Girl in her budding music career? She wants to write her music and sing it her way, not influenced by Jonathan's reputation. How can she have both? Maybe she can't......

With how the last book ended, this book doesn't exactly start off happy. Both Monica and Jonathan are feeling the effects of what they have done. It was really interesting to see how much they swayed back and forth.

Jonathan very much tries to stay in control but (again) so thankful to get his POV and to be able to see how he really feels.

Jessica is still causing problems. I was shocked at what happened...I guess all that pent up anger? You just know this is going to come back and bite him in t

I really enjoyed this one. To date, I think this is my favourite ‘episode’ from the Songs of Submission. We have got to know Monica and Jonathan so well by now and the series is fully in its stride. There’s so much emotional pain going on in Burn, a mutual heartrending longing for one other that pleases me greatly, There’s a part of me that is never happier when book characters are suff

This is turning out to be one of my favorite series! The sex is off the charts HOT, kinky, and adventurous!! Jonathon and Monica are a couple who I adore! I love how they have such an intensity about them when they are together; but even with that they can turn around and laugh together! To me, that is the ultimate kind of relationship! They are for sure two halves that make up the whole!

Not only is there explosive sex; but there is a great storyline and it includes secondary characters that eit

Five Smutastic Stars. C.D. Reiss uses words like a Jonathan uses his cock.


Can I just say that I adore this series? Even though each story is short; it doesn't feel like it - you completely forget that this just a sliver of the whole story. Each one is beautifully written, words seamlessly fit into place. And we aren't talking 'pull out the thesaurus' shit here. We are talking about poetry, perfection and words that draw out images in your head.

This book was wonderful! So much happens. The book starts off with them apart but still communicating. Jonathan is just waiting for her to come back to him. He has faith that things will work out & that they are meant to be together. Their relationship really grows and moves forward in this book. There is some stuff that happens and a lot of guessing who is out to get them. It seems so much is against them being together in this book, but they fight for each other. I was not h

You thought the first four were hot? Watch out, kiddies. In the latest installment of her sex-soaked drama, C.D. Reiss has chopped the wood, soaked it with lighter fluid, and lit a match.

You ever want something you can't have? You ever wanted something--anything--night and day, become obsessed, needed it, felt it, sang it, breathed it?

If there's one character in this book who is burning, there are at least three. Four? Yes, four. And where will *any* of them stop, in pursuit of their hearts' des

I’m now fully entrenched in the Jonathan-can-have-me-anyway-he-wants-me camp. I’m loving his POV chapters.

***spoilers***

I’m not fond that most of this story is them being apart. Monica is struggling to come to terms with what being with Jonathan means for her personally and professionally. There is no doubt that she loves him and can easily be swayed to be with him sexually but now Jonathan wants to own her body and soul and won’t take anything less than everything.
