The story of Jonathan Drazen and Monica Faulkner continues.

And it's time Monica stepped up to the plate.

I looked down at him, with his tourmaline eyes and copper hair and believed him despite my better judgment. Then I forgave him despite my misgivings. I loved him just because I did. My heart wasn’t sensible or guarded enough. Not by a sight.

I was a walking raw nerve end

Are there words to describe the feelings that were stirred inside of me when devouring this highly erotic and highly addictive story?................

Are there words to describe how much of an urge I have to change my name to Monica, move to LA, and start drinking a lot more tea!!!!!!

This series is amazing!

The last thing that happened in the previous book, “Burn”, was Jonathan being pulled away at the airport by the police. Bewildered Monica was also taken for questioning. Almost immediately we realise that Jessica has twisted things and she accuses Jonathan for behaving inappropriately – although she asked for it.

Monica wants to believe Jonathan. Jonathan does not want to explain. And he just wants to play.
So, they fight. And play. And fight. And play.

As always, things between Monica and Jonathan are HOT!! It seems that they have come so far in their relationship but Jonathan is still holding back the secrets of his past. If he tells her, he is afraid she is going to run away from him.....again. He can't stand the thought of ever being without her.

This was a great lead up to the conclusion of the Songs of Submission Series. Lots of questions were answered and other situations left open for the last part.

The "cliffy" was perfect. Little hints were given throughout the book that one would recognized after reading... which is the best; showing the writer's craft on always being in control without being obvious or trying to hard.

Authors take note... this is how you write a compelling, story driven, impactful character series. I
I cannot handle the cliffhanger on this one!

Months ago, I’d been flying, my own buzz filling my ears, with a destination in mind but a path not mapped. I had a job and friends and hope. One night, I spilled a drink. I touched a man’s hand, and I let him kiss me on the hood of his car. Some time after, I don’t know when, I fell into a web of lies and deceit. The harder I struggled, the more trapped I became.

Again, with the crazy ending in the last book, things are not in a good place. Monica finds out the reason and she is not a happy camper to say the least.

Monica's not one to stand around and I don't blame her...she deserves to get some answers! Obviously, Jonathan knows that and does everything in his power to thwart any plans Monica makes...and it's no easy task. Fortunately, Monica rises to the challenge.

And thank goodness she did. She was able to get some much needed information that helps o

What can be said that hasn't already been said about just how brilliant this series is? I know a few of you haven't started reading this yet, you are seriously missing out. Not only is this a highly erotic series but it is beautifully written; with an amazing story that is still unfolding. For those interested in the series I have added the reading order to the bottom of the review. The supplemental stories may not be required reading, but after reading Resist, I would say

I was warned about a MASSIVE cliffy but it really was shocking. The only redemption was I had the next book that was immediately opened and devoured. But that's the next back to Resist.

Right then, I wanted to fuck him as much as I wanted to RESIST. I'd longed for him for two days, hovering somewhere between rage and panic. (I love how CD incorporates the titles of her books in the first chapter somewhere)

This book however I am going to say a few things....

1) Jonathan is still fuckalicious
2) HOW the HELL can Monica take so much fucking ? Seriously it's really really not normal. Surely she's bound to get some sort of infection with so many fingers up her cake or Jonathan's mouth or his fingers in her ass then her cake!!

Just when I thought there was no way C.D. Reiss could make this series any better than it already is; she blows me out of the water with "Resist." This is book #6 in the sexy series, "Songs of Submission."

Jonathon and Monica turn up the heat more than a few notches with their explosive and primal sexual encounters. Jonathon becomes even more dominant and possessive of his Goddess, and he shows her more than a few times who she belongs too. I loved every minute of it!! It is not for the faint of

More off the charts sexual encounters.

More ex wife drama.

More trying to break up and getting back together.

More secrets revealed.

Just more of really everything that's lead up to this point.

I wasn't sure where Monica was going with trying to talk to Jessica and I was with Jonathan and that I didn't think it was a good idea but I gotta say that I thought it was pretty clever of her to grab that phone and get that recording.

And yes even though, Jonathan did try to protect Monica from himself, they

This series really is a bit like literary heroin for me – I’m not sure it’s entirely good for me, I worry for these characters constantly as CD Reiss piles on the agony, but I am like an addict looking for her next fix. I HAVE to know what’s coming next and, oh boy, do we get left with a mother of a cliffhanger at the end of this one. I need Book 7 STAT and it hasn’t event got a name yet. Sure hope you’re writing real fast Ms Reiss!!

So the story of Jonathan and Monica continues. Resist picks up where we left off. We know exactly what Jonathan was arrested for, who pressed the charges and what proof that Bitch had. The question of why is still open for discussion. So begins this cat and mouse chase between Monica and Jessica. Jessica wants to meet with Monica to share what she knows (AKA shock Monica and get more ammunition against Jonathan) and Monica of course wants to, she thinks she can help Jonathan by meeting with Jess ...more

They are finally really a couple and have admitted their feelings for each other and are committed to one another. I was so happy to see the strength and trust in their relationship grow.
