***You do NOT need to read Songs of Submission to read Spin***
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 the heat between us.
I discovered I was a savage, too.
“You need a man,” she said. “A rebound cock to fuck the sad right out of you.”
Spin is a spin off (ha-ha) series by CD Reiss, but you do not need to read the original series Songs of Submission. Each series is about a different sibling, so we see Jonathan Drazen from Songs very briefly in this book. Spin is Theresa Drazen’s story.
Theresa dated a politician for years. Until he fucked his speechwriter. Being the good girl that she is, she hasn’t publicly castrated him. Though broken up, she attends events with him, lending her support to his campaign. She’s torn about taking him back, until Antonio Spinelli blows into her life. Antonio has an impressive cock. But is he rebound cock or something more cock? He’s all wrong for her. All. Wrong. Theresa is an heiress. Antonio is a lawyer… with mob ties.
Yet, Antonio makes an impression. Early on in the book the simplest line made me grin from ear to ear. “I think I made a bad impression in the parking lot.” There’s just something about this guy. Book boyfriend material that puts butterflies in your stomach and a smirk on your face.
Spin is more crime mystery than I normally read, but Antonio was dreamy enough to make this an alpha romance novel for me. You might also like to know that Spin is NOT a serial format like Songs of Submission. The author notes at the end that two more novels are planned for this series, yet I did not feel like Spin ended in a cliffhanger. Do I want to know more? Yes. But the way book 1 ends is almost a mini HEA so you’re not left hanging.
I’m not complaining either, Theresa.
