★ Review ☆ Monica, Songs of Submission # 7.5, CD Reiss

Book 7.5, Monica. 21pg ebook
Even in love, you need pain.”

So, it took me a few days to get myself together and actually read Monica, and boy was it a “band-aide”
 
Sing skipped Jonathan’s recovery altogether, but implies that things were a little gentler over for awhile, but then Jonathan roars back to his Dominant self, and then some. 
Well,  Monica starts 6 months after Jonathan gets home from the hospital, and deals with as he puts it, the borrowed thing in his chest.
 
He feels like himself, but not quiet. He senses something different. He is going through the motions of life but at a more steady pace.

“I still hadn’t adjusted to being two people in one body, and my wife knew it.”

While Monica loves her husband, she misses the old Jonathan, the rough and Dominant man she’s always known, she misses the way they have always been but knows she is lucky to have the time that she does with him, no matter how gentle he has become. 
 

“No human could continue to be a raging lion after having their heart ripped out.”

All it takes is one word, one simple word that was whispered, that rips through Jonathan’s core, reminding him of the man he is, of the woman before him, and of his need to tear her apart.


“Ouch”

Boy does things heat up from here! 
 

“You can’t leave me until I destroy you.”“If you destroy me, I’ll never leave.”“Regularly.”


If you have read the others in the series, then you already know that CD’s sex scenes are fucking incredible, and this one is no exception. 
Jonathan is back and he is making up for lost time. 
 
Now, as I understand it, is the final book all about Jonathan and Monica 🙁 
But we do have more, Spin, Songs of Corruption #1,  The story is of Theresa Drazen, proper lady, and Antonio Spinelli, ambitious mobster
Not much else is out about it yet, other then the release date is March, 15th.
 
But I am hoping for more of Jonathan and Monica, it really can’t be over, can it.
 
At the end of Monica, CD leaves a little note, 


“So unless I can cover Jonathan and Monica’s story within the scope of the Drazen Sisters stories, I’ll make a brief return to Songs of Submission after Songs of Corruption is complete. Just enough to write Coda”

Pleaseeee CD, more of SOS after SOC

★ Review ☆ Rachel, Songs of Submission # 5.5, CD Reiss

 
Book 5.5, Rachel. 23pg ebook


“Do people like you ever have wishes, Jonathan?”

Wow! 
This little chapter is incredible!  A short trip into the past with Jonathan.
A much younger Jonathan at his and Jessica’s engagement party at his parents home.
Being home always brought back the memories, especially when he was around his father, but tonight was different.
His father takes notice when Jonathan is captivated by a young dark haired beauty who was playing the viola and makes his point that its “normal” to want girls that age, pushing Jonathan out of his comfort zone, a place he didn’t have full control. 
His engagement party was a typical fancy affair that had everything, including a hypnosis, one his sisters seem to think he needs to see to help him relax a little. 
He is taken back to his time with Rachel.

“Lets get this over with,” I said.
“Said like a true anxious man. Can you focus your mind on what’s making you tense? I’m going to count backwards from ten.”
The string quartet keyed up and began with Mendelssohn. Very nice, even for a group of teenagers. Despite being from the gifted school, I hadn’t expected much, especially not from the viola. No one could be that beautiful and talented at the same time. But her beauty carried to her playing, because as David counted back from ten, I didn’t hear a goddamn thing past five except the viola as if there was not another instrument on the planet.


Rachel, the former underage mistress of his fathers, hold a place in Jonathan’s heart. 
Even at 16 years old he had to be in control, not entirely a D/s way, but it was there.
All he wants is to protect her, to keep her safely away from his father, her stepfather and to be able to be with her in public. 
All she wanted was to be free. Free from her crap life where being used and abused is normal for her. Just Free. 
A drunken argument has everything spiraling out of control, something traumatic happened, something bad enough to leave a hole in Jonathan’s memory. 
 
This answers so many questions about his teenage years, gives some insight into his relationship with Jessica, and also has a little surprise twist.
But still, leaves a few things unanswered. 
Do they know? What happened to Rachel? 
Is she really gone? 
 
Up next, we are back in the presence with Resist.

★ Review ☆ Jessica and Sharon, Songs of Submission # 3.5, CD Reiss

Book 3.5, Jessica & Sharon. 23pg ebook

 

“There were too many fires to put out. Too many pieces to move across the chessboard.” 

I love these two small stories, or chapters as I’ve looked at them, are from Jonathan’s point of view which is something that I feel we needed.
Jessica 
You find out in book 3 that Jonathan is no longer in love with his bitch of an ex-wife. Now, this chapter shows that unfolding, him dropping Monica off and getting a call from Jessica.
Witnessing Jonathan’s realization that the woman he thought was his world, was nothing more than a wrong choice was touching.
With his new found freeness and his openness of the way he feels for Monica, he heads to San Francisco to tend to business, and to Sharon.
Sharon
The submissive in San Francisco that is at Jonathan’s beck and call every time he blows in and out of town once or twice a month is waiting, in position for him when he arrives. Their relationship isn’t anything serious, they both are a helper of sorts to the other. He has helped her stay away from abusing asses and she has fulfilled his dark desires as a Dominant. Jonathan is quick at setting her straight, that things are to be over and why remaining as an honest friend to her.
It is here that Jonathan learns from Debbie that Jessica has spoken with Monica at the club and told her something upsetting, he starts to panic, not knowing what secrets she could have shared, he try’s to arrange the people in his life like pawns on a chess board in his mind, fearful that Monica won’t accept all of him.
My only complaint is that this is too short, but I’m just being a greedy and wanting to be in Jonathan’s head more
