***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.
5 stars.

About CD Reiss

cd reiss new bio

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.
