Series: Songs of Perdition – #1 to #3
Genre: Dark Erotica
Release date: December 1, 2015
Everything about Fiona is forbidden.
She’s a party girl with dark desires.
She’s beautiful, irresponsible, irresistible.
She’s my patient.
I’m her therapist.
I’m past wanting her. Past possessing her. Past bedding her or protecting her.
I’m willing to be self-destructive, negligent, brave, audacious, and stronger than I ever believed possible.
She’s blunt force trauma to the heart.
And she calls another man Master.
This book contains Kick, Use, and Break from the Perdition Series. It is the ENTIRE STORY with a complete beginning, middle and end.
If you read Kick and Use, Break is easily found in the table of contents, and it’s a full length novel.
I haven’t read a good erotica novel, dark or otherwise in a while and had been finding something that would really get me hooked–indeed, I was hooked with this one. If I have to be honest, I don’t really bother with this author’s books because I have a major dislike for serials no matter the contents. It’s a weird quirk of mine, sue me. So I’m really happy about this edition.
Firstly, this book is 600 pages long.
600 pages of jumping between the heads of Fiona and Elliot, and also some Deacon.
When I reached the last page? I was a wreck as much as Fiona was (or the three combined together).
In the end, I’m torn between liking it and not, to be honest. Fiona is everything I don’t like in a heroine. It’s just that C.D. Reiss executed this heroine so well. The plot was crazy too, kept me on my toes the entire time. I hated being stuck in Fiona’s head, but at the same time I wanted to dig deeper.
It took me a while to wrap my head around Forbidden overall. It was one wild ride, I’ll give you that.
“I don’t want to be saved,” I said. “Not anymore.”
About this author
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.
