I don’t even know where to start – because I’m only half awake this morning, having stayed up until midnight to finish Sing – because CD Reiss left us with a WTF cliffhanger at the end of Resist. Thankfully, I was lucky enough to get an ARC from Netgalley of Sing and started right onto Book 7 – the Finale – Sing.
Over all, I’d give the entire series (even the short novella’s) 5 stars. It’s been a while since a series has really grabbed me like this one. Jonathan is a dominant – and Monica is a submissive. But there are real feelings intertwined between them, that neither understand or want to admit too. Jonathan likes a little kink, ok A LOT of kink in the bedroom and he’s bringing out the submissive that is naturally inside Monica – even though she she was unaware of it.
These stories are told over a 7 part series plus 2 short novellas – so 9 in total. We see these characters at their best – and worst. We see them fight for what they want – and run away when things get too hard. There are lies – manipulations – controlling issues and two people just desperate for each other they’d walk through fire for one another.
Jonathan is a millionaire – hotel tycoon – but he’s not an asshole about it. Monica is a struggling musician/waitress who strikes his fancy. They meet – banter – have amazing chemistry and things flow from there….into some of the hottest sex scene’s I’ve read all year. CD Reiss has an amazing gift of writing a sex scene that makes it kinky and loving all at the same time. There are REAL feelings between these characters. Jonathan doesn’t just want to possess and control Monica – he wants her to succeed and be the strong, confident, brave woman he see’s in the bedroom – in everything she does in her everyday life. He just wants every orgasm she has to be his.
I didn’t feel a lag at all through the entire series, and sometimes I don’t bother with short novella’s when they come out – because they tend not to add anything to the story. So wrong with the two attached here – Book 3.5 and 5.5 were both worth the $.99 to have a little more insight to Jonathan and why he is the way he is. Some of them answered questions I didn’t even know I had til I read it… and left me wanting more and more.
Book 7 – The Finale – Sing was just released last night early … and it’s only $.99 on Amazon. The entire Series is less that 15 bucks for all 9 books.
Check them out – they’re definitely worth it – I’m still nursing a

“God,’ he said, ‘I have to have you.’
‘Take me. Own me. Use me. Pick a verb. Just please.’
‘Fuck you. I’m going to fuck you. That’s my verb.”
“I want to be your last. I want to ruin you for other men.”
“This is us together. I own it. This body is my plaything. Your ache is mine. Your orgasm is mine. Your hunger is mine. Your dirty thoughts are mine.”
“I’ll call him for you.”
“I’m not about to suck your dick so you’ll make a call for me.”
“And I’m not making the call so you’ll suck my dick. So, now that we’ve cleared that up, can you get on with it?”
“If you have never seen beauty in a moment of suffering, you have never seen beauty at all.”
“The minute I told you to spread your legs and you did it, you were mine. When I told you to beg for it and you did, you were mine. When you put your hands behind your back without being told, I owned you.”
“You forgot to cross off anal sex.”
“I tried it once. Didn’t like it. If you’re better at it, I’ll have another crack.” I paused. “No pun intended.”
“That smell mixed with the scent of getting tied up and fucked became the smell of complete release, of an orchestra connected by the simple movements of a skilled conductor.”
“He opened a jack-in-the-box of sexuality by turning a handle I didn’t even know I had.”
