Book Review - Ruin by CD Reiss

My Thoughts

Theresa and Antonio's passionate story continues and picks up right where Spin left us. Theresa is in hiding to protect her from the fallout and Antonio is trying his best to keep the wolves at bay. They are even more consumed with each other and share moment after moment fiercely loving each other as only they can. Can I just ask...what could possibly be hotter than a bossy man who naughty talks in Italian??? Seriously off the chart hot! There are a few bumps along the way, but I don't want to give anything away. You so have to experience it yourself.

CD can write the hell out of a couple. Between Antonio who is so incredibly strong and dynamic yet still worried about keeping the love of his life safe and Theresa who is so completely and utterly immersed in this man who has grabbed hold of her heart when she least expected it yet is strong and smart outside of that.  Then add some steamy moments that will take your breath away and make your heart palpitate and you have such an incredible story. One that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end and make you beg for more as you finish the last page. You don't want to miss a minute with the Capo and his Contessa!

I give Ruin 5 hearts!

About the Book

Antonio is a killer. He's beautiful and educated; a prodigy of a thief and as violent a badass 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 than a defenseless creature.

But he'd never do that. Not this violent badass.

About the 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.
