What you're breaking isn't some little, meaningless coupling. We aren't some casual screw, 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 are bound at the/>

I’m writing this with a very clear head. I left my anger and disappointment at the door.

As a reader, I’ll say the story from book 1-6 is okay.

As an individual, I’m deeply offended. This is the first time a book offends me so much. I’m not easily offended, to be frank.

I’ve noticed that the author tends to general-stereotype people of color throughout the story.

We are introduced to the pivoting point of views as Control begins. After reading the bonus installments from Jonathan’s POV I was excited to venture further into his mind although it took me a while to adjust to change in voice this series had; I was greedy for Monica’s thoughts.


Monica hadn’t time to fully consider the weight of Jonathan’s declaration until now. But with new eyes she tries to envision what submitting to him will turn her into. What parts of her she stands to lose by releas

Mon has a brain damage *sarcasm* cuz i cant explain to myself her acts any other way.

if you think he's ruining your career, then why you opening your legs to him?
if you think you may be a sub but not obedient, then why u r on ur knees?
if you think these ways, why you suddenly agreed to commit to him and admitted u love him AFTER u had a good proposition for ur career?

Control-Part 4 of 9: More drama with the ex-wife. Jonathan just confuses me. I can't tell if he finally acknowledges his love of Monica and wants more or if he just wants to keep her but at arms length. Monica is still being stupid about her ex, Kevin. That guy is a sleaze ball and she's crazy for not cutting ties. I'm still loving every bit of of these two.

This was another compelling read but...idk, I think the serialization format forced unnecessary drama into the story so that each part ended on a cliffhanger. So they split, reconciled, had hot sex, split etc etc on repeat. At first it tore me up while I was reading it, but every time it repeated, it lost a little of its potential to shock, which was a pity when the writing was so good - the sex scenes in this are off the charts.
There is another, final part that concludes this story and th

The story was good, but I so hated Monica. I don't like how she thinks and acts and how she sees herself if she accepts something from her boyfriend and how she sees submission. For me she is the main problem in this series.

STORY: 4.5 stars
OVERALL: 5 stars

Monica and Jonathan's saga develops into a more intricate web in this second sequence. We still get plenty of hot and heavy kinky sex yet fortunately, there's more going on than just that, especially in the last 1/3rd. I think I enjoyed these three books more than the first three because Jonathan is more involved, giving us his direct point of view. Whatever the reason, I'm glad I continued listening and look forward to the n

Once again I don't have anything more to add that hasn't been said about this series!! It's fantastic!!

Yes, I am in love with this series! Jonathan & Monica are so HOT together. The love story is perfect (to me), the sex scenes are super hot and the chemistry is amazing. I can't come up with one thing I dislike about this story. The characters are strong and the writing is really good. To top it all off...the narration is AMAZING!!! As if the story isn't hoot enough, she makes it 10x hotter. Great narration choice for an awesome series!

Five stars are not enough!! I LOVED THE BOOKS!! LOVED, LOVED,LOVED them all. I don't think erotica even begins to describe these books. Yes,they are very erotic and so damn sexy. But the story speaks for itself. I am in awe. I will be starting the final one tonight. CANNOT WAIT

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. At first he just wanted to dominate her, to hold her to a contract but now he wants so much more. He wants to possess her, to keep her by his side, to love and protect – he wants to claim her and he
5 Stars Is STILL Not Enough!

Part 2 of one of my all time favorite series. Jonathan and Monica's story continues. It's sweet, emotional, happy, sad and hot. But, like books 1- 3, the standout feature is how seductive and sensual it is. As Jonathan and Monica are falling into each other, I am also falling under their spell.

It always comes down to the writing and CD Reiss is one of those authors that seemed made for writing for me. I connect so deeply with her stories and characters that I feel t

This is hard to describe, I’m having a hard time with what I feel about this book and series. It’s intriguing but got a little boring. Maybe it’s took long since I’m doing the 3 book series and not all the smaller ones. I think the thing I’m not loving right now is how confusing the characters seems. Their inner voice seems to lie as well as what they say outloud. It’s difficult trying to figure out what is true. I’ll finish this book(s) but not sure I’ll need to continue with this

Audiobook: I really like the audio version of this book. The female narrator does such a great job of doing a male voice. It's not overdone, but its just deep enough to sound convincing. Also she sings more in this book and I really like that she doesn't just read the words like I've heard in other books. She has a Tori Amos style that I really like.

I am loving this series!! I usually don't pay $5.99 for an e-book unless it is something I KNOW is going to be great, but I am so glad I

Control, Burn, Resist picked up right where Bundle #1 left off. And this time we also get to jump into Jonathan's head with the change to dual POV's. This added another emotional level to this series. I was super excited to get a glimpse into what haunting things make this domineering man tick, while continuing with Monica On her journey of self discovery.

CD Reiss writes the most interesting and deep characters. They have an edge of realness to them, that most books in this genre ar

***5 "Sea and Sky" Stars***

After reading the first three books, there was no way in hell I wasn't buying a bundle that contained the next three. I was rabid for the continuation of Jonathan and Monica's story! Sequence Two gives us dual POV, and our peek inside the sexy billionaire's mind couldn't be better timed. Monica may not always know - yet - what's going on in that ginger head, but readers get a glimpse of his psyche. It's impossible not to root for these two as they navigate what it means t

This is a collision of music, art, BDSM, dominance, submission, possession, obsession, guilt, unresolved love, unforgettable sex and memorable characters.

CD Reiss masterfully weaves a plot full of mystery and suspense while giving us erotic love scenes to rival all best selling books in any genre.

I fell in love with Jonathan from the first. Just like Monica, this man was so real and mysterious that he immediately gripped my heart and did not let go. I adore Monica with he

Although I've read this series several times, for me it always seems like the first time. I find myself absorbed from the first page or in this case the first few minutes of listening. This audible series is one of my favorites! The narrators are phenomenal and made me feel as if Monica and Jonathan were real. I felt their emotion poor from my iPhone just as

I don't know why I waited so long to list to the Sequence Two audio bundle in CD Reiss's Submission series. This set of stories about Jonathan and Monica is just an emotional rollercoaster that Sequence One.

3.5 stars for this one

I like the S/M aspect of this book. I didn't like how Monica thought of herself when Jonathan brought up the submissive word. I'd love more like this from this author though.

The audiobook of Control/Burn/Resist is absolutely AMAZING!!! Jo Raylan and Christina Fox did the most perfect job of narrating Monica and Jonathan. They're now probably my favorite narrators ever. Aaahhh I just loved everything about this so much.
