★ Review ☆ Ruin, Songs of Corruption #2 by CD Reiss

“I’m going to fuck you easy and slow, until your bones turn into jelly. and you forget how to beg me.”

CD Reiss doesn’t give simple book hangovers, she completely turns your world upside down while dragging you along for a wild ride, this time of passion, betrayal, corruption, violence, revenge and of course, love. I knew this story was going to be intense from start, but I never expected it to take me where it did.

This review is one of the hardest ones that I have written, and after 2 days and hours of sitting here trying to put this book into words, this is the best I’ve got, without giving away all the good bits and spoiling it for you all.

Ruin picks up right where Spin left off with Theresa hauled up in hiding with Antonio.If you haven’t read Spin, stop reading this and go grab it now! (Amazon / B&N / Kobo / iBooks)

“Let me introduce you to my mob. This is my Neapolitan camorra. These are my rituals. My sold souls. My men of honer. This is my Los Angeles.”

Antonio, the violent, ruthless, sweet and passionate Capo who has lost his heart to Theresa and wants nothing more than to protect her and give her the life she deserves. But to do that, he needs to get out, and once does not simply get out of the Mafia. Alive.

With the betrayal of his former partner, Paulie, Theresa has never been in more danger, and Antonio has never been as fearful of losing her, making him even more determined to keep his Contessa away from that side of his life, but she has other ideas.

“She was my hope, that woman, standing so straight as she crossed the street. She could rule the world. She already ruled me.”

Theresa, the strong and resilience woman who is more calculating and has a harder exterior than Capo gives her credit for, is learning where her true place is, beside her Capo. She has broken through her old life and is trying to merge herself into his, taking it upon herself to try and help free himself from his duties in the Mob, but her lack of understanding all the rules they play by leave her more recklessness than helpful.

“She was going to be the death of me, and I was suicidal. I would kill for her, or I’d be killed by her.”


Between the lies, hatred, scheming and murder, these two come to realize their love for each other is otherworldly, something neither one is willing to give up. It’s raw, passionate and animalistic, it knows no limits. Yet it’s so sweet, protective, and breathtaking.

“I am yours, Contessa. Solo tua. Forever. Everything I do with you is forever.”

Can their love survive everything the Mafia throws their way?

“You are my only, my one and only. And if I have to turn my life upside down, or go to hell to be with you, so be it.”

You will need to read it for yourself to see 😉

We get to see the world through both Antonio and Theresa’s eye, the straggles, heartache, happiness and raw passion they both share, and try to hide from one another.

I laughed, cried, laughed some more, cried, was grossed out, laughed again and then came the painful ugly cry.

I am dying for book 3 to come out, but I will admit, I’m curious as to how CDR is going to top perfection.

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.

★ Review ☆ Spin, Songs of Corruption # 1 by CD Reiss

Book 1, Spin. 240pg ebook
“Your first loyalty is to me. Every moan on your lips, Every wet drop from your cunt. When the thought of fucking crosses your mind, It’s mine. Say it.” 
I will be the first to admit, while I was excited to have more from CD Reiss, I wasn’t over the moon about losing Jonathan, But by the second chapter, I was so hooked that I’ve read it twice! 
This one is about Theresa, we’ve met her a few times during SOS, however, this book is a stand alone and you do not have to read the SOS series. LOL who am I kidding, Everyone should read SOS! (link to reviews and purchase details Here)
Theresa, the gorgeous, quiet and all together yet broken Drazen. After finding out her District Attorney fiancee was cheating on her with his speech writer, she quietly ditches his ass and is now trying to pick up the pieces while keeping herself composed. 
That is until Spin. 
“It was his gaze, which was locked on me, disarming me. He was beautiful to me. Not my type, not at all. But the slight cleft in his chin, the powerful jaw, the swoop of dark hair falling over his forehead seem right, Just right. I swallowed. My mouth has started watering, and my throat had gotten dry. I got a flash of him above me, with that swoop of hair rocking, as he fucked me so hard the sheets ripped.” 
Antonio Spinelli, aka Spin – Theresa’s Capo, the dangerous, intoxicating, powerfully sexy Italian beast with more secrets than you can poke a stick at.
He is instantly crazy about Theresa the moment he lays his eyes on her, and isn’t shy about going after her, taking her at all costs, but tries keeping her at arm’s length from his world. As the story unfolds, you learn a little about Spin and his businesses, but you also see a very exposed, a vulnerable side of him when his Contessa is involved. 
There isn’t anything he wouldn’t do to keep her safe, including hurting himself to protect her, but neither of them can keep away from the other. 
“I tried to stay away,” he said. “I’ve never wanted a woman this much in my life. I’d burn cities to have you. I’d fight armies. I’d commit murder to take you right now.” 
The sex? in a word, MJSKUFGQWyGWGIUG! 
Everyone knows that CD can steam up your pages, but this… WoW. The dirty talk is second to none, the rough and animistic sex these two have is enough to leave you panting. Even the more tender moments are fucking hot.   
“Every day,” he whispered, “I’ll take you like this. In the morning, before coffee, I fuck you. At night, I fuck you harder. In our bedroom, our living room, our kitchen, I’ll love you in every room. Amore mio, I’ll break you with my love and put you back together. And when I retire, you still call me Capo because you’re mine. Always mine.” 
These two come from opposite worlds, she is the straight-laced, always plays it safe lady and he is your tense, rough and ready Mafia boss who’s number one commitment is to the family, so how can this little steamy love affair work you may ask? 
Get the book and find out promise, you won’t be disappointed. 
“How straight you are for the world, and how you bend and cry for me. I want to go so deep in you we have the same thoughts.” 
And now on for the long wait for the next installment of Songs of Corruption.
In the meantime, get ready for Songs of Perdition #1 starring Fiona Drazen, which is coupled up with 7 other amazing authors in one book, Bend. Out May 5th
