This is the last book in the series.

Take my hand, my love.
On sinews of air we tread
Aught but distance our guide
With no tempo to our gait
No endpoint drawn
Neither plot nor plan
By the thorns of a compass rose
We bound toward the horizon

★★★★★! SING, part 7 of 7.5. The conclusion of playboy & mogul Jonathan Drazen and aspiring singer Monica Faulkner’s epic saga!

“He’s not some boyfriend in a line of them. He is my alpha and omega. He is the sky over me. Without him, I’m lost. There’s no one else, no one whose soul balances mine the way his does.”

There is a reason why C.D Reiss is USA TODAY BEST SELLING AUTHOR......and why 5 stars is simply not enough for this extraordinary brilliant book.......

I did not like Jonathan being so weak, but this book provided another great angle in Jonathan and Monica's relationship.

“Hi,” I said when I walked into Jonathan’s room of bland pinks, beiges, hard edges, and the smell of sickness and alcohol. I’d gotten him a little light-up Christmas tree for the table by the bed, and every night, he made sure it was on.

Monica cannot simply accept that Jonathan's condition is the result of a a sixteen-year-old overdose. She thinks about poisons, attempts of mur

You know the saying "good things happen when you least expect it"? This is exactly what happened to me and this brilliant series - I stumbled upon the first two novellas compeletely by accident and, since I was in between books, I thought "Why not?". Boy, am I ever glad I took a chance!

BDSM erotica has become a genre du jour and, even though everybody and their mother is all of a sudden a self-published erotica writer, very few can actually pull it off. C.D

I have a confession to make...... I read this book in one sitting. One abso-fucking-lutely awesome sitting. That might not be an uncommon occurrence for some of my Goodreads friends but for me, it's a first. I bow down to you C.D. Reiss.

One word for this book- ANGST. All-consuming, page turning angst.

What a fantastic ending to an unforgettable series...

Sing is the 7th and final installment in the Songs of Submission series that consists of seven main novellas and three side novellas. The previous part of this series ended with a HUGE cliffhanger so I was anxious to start this book right away (most of the novellas ended with a bit of a cliffhanger btw so it's best to read them when you can all read them in a row).

Sing did have a complete different feel to it than the previous

I am sad to say that my journey has come to an end with this unforgettable series. This last book, "Sing," brought me to my knees. It was so heartbreaking, intense, and honest. What I mean by honest is that the circumstances in this installment were so realistic, and had me fully engaged right up until the very last page. I prefer not to ever give spoilers in my reviews, so I apologize in advance if I write with not very much clarity.

In the interest of saving time and from spamming my f-list, I thought it would be prudent to write an overall review for the songs of submission series in this seventh and final book. Its been almost a whole day since I've read this book, hoping to be able to piece together a coherent review that would do justice to this enjoyable series, and most importantly, this final book that had my feels in a hot mess.

Once again we start off picking up the pieces from the crazy ending of the last book. And let me just say, this was probably my least favorite book but I can't tell you why! I can say that it was because I didn't like what happened! Ugh...I know it makes things more realistic but I'm just not a big fan of this type of plot.

"You’re a manipulative bastard, a brazen liar, and a sadist. You've brought me to my knees. You've dominated me. You've told me who I am and then challenged me to be it. If you made me strong enough to stand up to the world, let me stand by you. If you completed the woman I am, let me be that woman in your honor. Every part in my body is dedicated to you. Every note I sing. Every breath in my lungs. My pleasure and pain. Take me. Let me serve you. Let me be yours."

I am not sure if there are any words to explain what a brilliant series this is. And although Sing is far different than the other six books in this series, it was absolute perfection.

It's a true gift to be able to evoke emotions from the reader, but it wasn't just the emotions that were torn from within me. It was the perfect imagery that C.D. Reiss creates with her words. Every chosen word seem

Sing, part #7, is the conclusion to the addicting series, Songs of Submission.
It should come as no surprise to those who have traveled this road of self discovery, art, music and sexuality how intensely you will feel after reading this. I usually write my reviews right after my experience with the book. I put my thoughts down, hope they make sense to the readers and send them out to those who choose to read them.

E.L.James made the genre Erotic Romance widely accepted.
CD Reiss now makes the connection of that genre to literature.

I will make this review completely spoiler free. The only spoiler is perhaps that I think this series, Songs of Submission, that started early this year, is really awesome and it finds here in book 7, Sing, its conclusion in a perfect timed, felt and written style.

I dream how a fairy would visit me, granting me a wish. My wish would be that I never read anything written by CD Rei

I can't LOVE this series more, words can't do justice on how I feel about this book and the whole series. I won't do a long review because I'm not sure when I will collect all my thoughts. So here we go...

Sing is the last book of the seven-part novella by C.D. Reiss entitled Songs of Submission. And since I am such a lazy gal, I won't be doing an individual review for each novella. This review will serve as my review for the whole series. :D

Now, that's out of the way, let's get down to business shall we. As I have mentioned above Sing is the seventh and the last novella in the series Songs of Submission.

Wow!!! Sing was such an amazing ending to the Songs of Submissions Series. Honestly, I didn't expect what happened in this book but I loved every second of it. It was simply perfect.

The reason I decided to read this series was through a suggestion on the C.D. Canaries thread for C.D. Reiss new book Spin (Songs of Corruption). I asked the question whether or not I had to read the Songs of Submissions Series first before Spin and it was suggest by a few C.D. Canaries t

So when we left Monica and Jonathan, Jonathan collapsed and we thought something was very very wrong. Well, we were right!!! Something is wrong and it's very serious.

So the entire book is Jonathan in the hospital because his heart had side effects from his suicide attempt of long ago. Monica of course is worried and frightened. She finally gives in to her desires for him and realizes he's the one she wants and needs, but will it be too late??? Has their time passed??? And what would you do to sa
