SPECIAL GUEST REVIEW by Michelle New Hardball is a SMOKING HOT, SEXY romance with a touch of angst and a ton of heart from CD Reiss. It’s a fun, witty, full-length standalone. Cover model for all the things is Ashley Gibson with Lovenbooks. Michelle’s Review: Dash Wallace is the star shortstop for the LA Dodgers, multi-time MVP and Golden Glove winner and is now hot on the heels of librarian to the underprivileged. Oh, and he’s perfect. Like P.E.R.F.E.C.T. Told from both Viv’s and Dash’s point of view, we get the inside look into both of these characters. And what I loved the most about that shift in perspectives – that we get them at the right moments. We get the most impact from each scene and this is something that for me has always stood out for me when it comes to Christine’s writing. It’s purposeful. If you need… Read more »
Author: CD Reiss
CD Reiss is a USA Today and Amazon bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up, she’s at the well, hauling buckets.
Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere, but it did embed TV story structure in her head well enough for her to take a big risk on a TV series structured erotic series called Songs of Submission. It’s about a kinky billionaire hung up on his ex-wife, an ingenue singer with a wisecracking mouth; art, music and sin in the city of Los Angeles.
Critics have dubbed the books “poetic,” “literary,” and “hauntingly atmospheric,” which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think she’s some sort of braggart who’s too good to give the toilets a once-over every couple of weeks or chop a cord of wood.
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
I stroked his hair, waist deep in peace, all worry gone for the moment, and floating in no more than an ocean of gratitude. I must have been more vulnerable than I realized, or he’d reopened some wound with his kindness, because though my sweet reverie stayed, as the minutes passed, a layer of need fitted itself on top of it. I needed to tell him, if not the details, the outlines of who I was. “I want you to know,” I whispered, starting somewhere small, then everything I didn’t want to say spilled out. “I have stuff. I’ve never been to jail, but you know, it’s stuff, and it’s ugly, and it scares me. Because, I mean, you’re so perfect, and I’m… I’m just a mess. I’m not whole. I’m a bunch of pieces of a person I cobbled together.” My eyes got wet when I thought of the… Read more »
This is one of my most anticipated 2016 reads! I cannot wait…CAN NOT WAIT to get my hands on this book! Did you read that blurb????? Now Available for Pre-order! AMAZON – http://amzn.to/1MkP9W6 iBOOKS – http://apple.co/20dqYmZ KOBO – http://bit.ly/1NL2fBG Release Date: March 29th Now… here’s a note from CD Reiss herself! Author Note: You’re going to notice that the cover doesn’t say CD Reiss. It has a real first name, and it’s a name I’ve always been grateful to have. I’ve discovered that The Submission Series is considered quite dark and scary to some readers. I didn’t realize that when I wrote it. I was just turning myself on. So, in the interests of making it easy for new readers to separate the lighter from the darker, I’ll be using a full first name on some of my new work. CD Reiss will be the darker stuff. Everything from Submission… Read more »

I don’t know about you, but all my friends (teacher friends especially), ask me what they should read in the summer. I’m always looking for a good book, but there’s something about reading a good book in the summer that makes my day. Maybe it’s sitting outside, next to the pool, with a fruity cocktail in hand…but I especially love reading a good book in the summer. Whenever I’m asked by someone, what should they read, it always brings on a conversation, and a lot of questions. So I asked one of my book friends what HER top five are, and well, here is our SUMMER LIST, so far. We decided to keep it to books released thus far this year… so January 2015 book until now. First up… MICHELLE NEW’s PICKS… Michelle’s Top Five Three, Two, One (321)-JA Huss: This was the IT book for me. It was raw,… Read more »

Graphic by Michelle New If you’ve read CD Reiss before you don’t need anyone to tell you to read this. If you’ve not read CD Reiss before, this is YOUR book. Shuttergirl is a stand alone romance. It’s CD Reiss at her best, all wrapped up & resolved in one novel. Michael is the son of a Hollywood icon. Raised in a life of privilege, under the watchful eyes of everyone. Ten years ago, at a high school for “the specialist snowflakes money could raise,” he met a girl. A girl who had no business being there, but her journey through the foster care system included a six month stay with a wealthy couple that landed her in a school district way above her social or educational abilities. They barely knew each other, yet somehow a connection was made between the two. The outcast girl studying on the bleachers after… Read more »
WHY I thought this was going to be a fluff piece, I do not know. I’ve read all the books, obviously. No one jumps in on book 9 if they haven’t read the first 8, unless they live in trollville. So I imagined we were getting a sweet little Happily Ever After with this final book. Two hundred pages of babies & puppies & and a rocking sex life in a magical land where babies never cry and no one argues over why the dog peed on the carpet again. Um, not so much. Nope. Coda is a real book. Gut wrenchingly real. Painfully real. Honestly real. And for that, thank you. Because we’ve all read the swan song finale books that are in the end, not that satisfying. Because we think we want 200 pages of unicorns, but when we get them, we end up kinda shrugging and saying,… Read more »
Synopsis: **Ya gotta read Spin before you read Ruin** Antonio is a killer. He’s beautiful, educated, a prodigy of a thief and as violent a motherfucker as ever came off the boat from Napoli. Theresa knows it, but that doesn’t stop her from getting emotionally and physically entangled with him, and this is how, maybe, she got it in her head that she can protect him. But it’s not her job to save him, and she’s just not getting that. Every time she tries to protect him, she practically gets him killed, and the tighter he grips her, the more dangerous she becomes. It’s almost as if…well, he’d never admit this….but it’s almost as if protecting her the way he does is the one thing he should stop. As if the only way he’s ever going to find a moment’s peace is to just embrace her as a partner, rather… Read more »
