Mafia capo, Antonio Spinelli blew through my orderly life like a cyclone.

Gorgeous and passionate, with a breathtaking brutality, he put me under his spell the moment he touched me, drawing me into his underworld of risk, violence and betrayal.

And I found, just as this sophisticated savage didn’t trust me, I didn’t trust myself. Something happened to me. Some alchemy from t

★★★★★! Spin, book 1 of 3. Opposite attracts when alleged mob boss Antonio Spinelli & Theresa Drazen’s worlds of politics, movies, money, mafia & corruption collide!

Songs of Corruption is the whirlwind saga of alleged mob boss Antonio Spinelli and Theresa Drazen.

It’s a STAND-ALONE sequel series to Songs of Submission and Songs of Dominan

How I love the Drazen family. Songs of Corruption is a companion series to Songs of Submission. You can read this series without fear of spoilers for SOS. Although you see glimpses of Jonathan and Monica as this story is the same timeline, their story is in SOS not in SOC. This is Theresa Drazen's (Contessa's) story. A very proper girl who was engaged to a DA who was running for mayor. Until said fiancée acted not so properly and Theresa is on her own and meets the sexy, dangerous mob lawyer and ...more

Antonio Spinelli, Esq is “….the picture of masculine grace.” He’s a man who keeps his council. Do NOT question him and the underworld in which he lives. There are no measures he will NOT take to PROTECT. I love protector stories and Antonio Spinelli is a protector in the extreme.

Songs of Corruption is a spin-off from the Songs of Submission series, featuring Theresa Drazen (Jonathan's sister) and Antonio Spinelli. I recommend reading Songs of Submission first as it gives you a good background for the Drazen family.

Spin runs parallel to parts of SoS and begins with Theresa at Frontage with Jonathan listening to Monica sing and play. It is there that Theresa first sees Antonio Spinelli. And one touch from Antonio Spinelli ignites

So I'll admit it, as a massive fan of this authors early work, in particular her Songs of Submission series, I was somewhat nervous to read this book, especially given my love/addiction to Jonathan Drazen, (the central character in the Songs of Submission series).

I worried that Jonathan simply couldn't be beaten, I worried that maybe the first series was a "one off", a "fluke" for this increasingly popular author, (I even stayed away from all the other reviews until I had read the final pag

This is the beginning of a love story. The first in a trilogy. This is not your typical love story because when you deal with the Mafia, nothing is typical or ordinary. Things are raw, combustible, lustful, vengeful, deceitful, secretive and explosive.

In the beginning we meet Teresa, she is Jonathan’s sister from Songs of Submission. This series is a stand alone, so you don’t have to have read SOS to enjoy this series. However, it begins in the nightclub when Teresa is with Jonathan listening to Monica sing. Now I am dork, but I love when books do this, because it is like you get to see what is going on in everyone’s life at the same time.

Teresa and her fiancé Daniel have just broken up, he was caught cheating on her.

I don't even know where to begin. I just really, really love CD Reiss! I love the way that she writes her sex scenes the way she balances the heat/intensity/dirt/passion of it all. It's that unapologetic brand of hot that I absolutely love in books.

I was glad that while obviously Spin has characters from the SOS series that this was a different story and frame of reference all together. We don't just get the rehashing of Jonathan and Monica's journey and brand of kinky sex. We get something com

Okay before someone pitchforks me yet again for 1-starring a galley I requested, I actually read the first Songs of Submission book. And while my interest in that series tapered off by the second book, I found the writing decent and had a different pulse and form to the usual erotica out there. I also like books set in LA in any genre, for some reason.

C.D. Reiss brilliantly masters her craft. Her writing creates a completely visceral experience for her reader, stimulating and igniting all five senses. Her words trap you in the orbit of the worlds she’s crafted muting real life all around you; it’s like you’ve jumped through your e-reader and are completely surrounded. It’s near impossible not to devour a story written by Reiss.

Spin was a very well written, sensual, fast paced read that I very much enjoyed reading. Once I started reading this book, I could not put it down until I knew how it would end.

Spin is the spin-off of the Songs of Submission series by CD Reiss but it can also be read as a standalone. It's the story of Theresa Drazen, driven and independent career woman, and Antonio Spinelli, dark and dangerous mob son. Their whirlwind romance is one with many ups and downs and filled with sexual

I am totally in the minority on this one, but I didn't love it. I thought shit ratcheted up so fast between Theresa and Spin, without ANY basis at all, that it didn't make sense or seem reasonable.

Spin's character seemed completely flat to me and, don't get me wrong, I love possessive alpha male, but his mojo kicked in so fast it made him seem less swoon worthy and more fucking whack job.
