    Entrancingly Erotiv

    I can recall way back in early 2013 picking out a new book on Amazon just because I liked the cover. It was by an author I’d never heard of, there were no reviews but the blurb appealed to me and it wasn’t very expensive so I one-clicked and went off to curl up on the sofa not really knowing what to expect. That book was Beg, the author CD Reiss, and the rest, as they say, is history. As I began to read, I realised that I’d stumbled on something very special and was thrilled and I knew that this was going to be big. Since then, CD Reiss has deservedly grown in popularity and is now a best-selling author. As a reader, she challenges me, she pushes my boundaries, enthrals and captivates me. She evokes real emotion in me as her incredible fictional world transcends the written word and lives vividly in my imagination. As an author, she’s definitely colouring outside the lines. Embarking on Coda, my expectations are completely different from when I first picked out Beg and it’s so good to go back and reconnect with Monica and Jonathan, his Goddess and the man who cheated death. How can the dynamics of their relationship stay they way they were after that brush with catastrophe? Simple answer – of course they can’t and so we embark on the dazzling voyage that is Coda as we watch Monica and Jonathan try to piece it all back together. Monica is still dazed, functioning and competent, but emotionally stunned after coming so close to losing Jonathan and still reeling from what she almost did to keep him. Jonathan, for his part, is mistrustful of his new heart and is struggling to come to terms with his second chance. They’re a couple treading water, drowning in doubt and worry. Jonathan is a ticking time bomb and they both know it. He wants children, a legacy, and she knows what it’s like to grow up without a Father. They’re both suffering from a bad dose of PTSD and this is playing havoc with their D/s dynamic and Coda follows the story of them trying to get all of this, which they both need and crave badly, back on track. I confess I read in abject fear, gripped by a strong sense of anxiety, really not knowing how this was all going to end – after all Jonathan is a man living on borrowed time with a borrowed heart and I didn't doubt for a second that CD Reiss could strike him down with her pen. She’s shocked me badly before in this series and I was terrified at what the outcome of all this would be. It often felt like disaster was looming large and yet hidden just over the horizon. Of course, I’m not going to tell you what happens here – you will need to read to find out! Coda is a wonderful read – it’s as fresh and perverse as ever, an entrancingly erotic bedtime story to stalk your dreams long after you’ve finished it. CD Reiss knows how to seduce her readership and the narrative is packed to the rafters with her usual zingers and sharp observations that single her out from a lot of other authors in this genre. She has an uncanny knack of going beneath her words and eking out the true meaning of what is going on with her keen eye and sharp, no bullshit sense. It’s what makes her style so wholly intoxicating and addictive. So Coda is an emotionally captivating experience as Jonathan seeks to reassert his dominion over Monica, to stop her from seeing only fragility when she looks at him. It’s extremely well crafted and beautifully rich set during a tumultuous time in their relationship, where these two impassioned characters have almost been torn apart only to cheat death at the last possible second. It’s obvious from the prose just how much the author adores her central couple, they’re treated with real love and affection and their relationship is just stunning and beautiful, despite all the inappropriate bruises! The sexual chemistry between Monica and Jonathan has always been palpable, and is a major factor as to why this series is so good. We, the readers, find ourselves yearning for them to be together forever even though events out of their hands could possibly forever keep them apart. There’s a couple of very strong scenes here that really stand out for me – deeply emotional, I suspect deeply personal and so incredibly poignant. It’s at once brutal and yet tender – a true roller-coaster of emotions. I confess to keeping a sharp eye out for some of the major players from the other ‘Songs’ series but they’re fleeting and rare and the focus is kept almost entirely on Jonathan and Monica as we immerse ourselves deeply in their story. In conclusion, I think this was a much needed chapter in their story, after the drama of Sing – we definitely needed to see the calm after the storm, to see them getting their life together back on track, however short that may turn out to be and fans of the series will adore this. It’s very sexy, very emotional – a true pleasure. 4.5 borrowed time stars.

    I wish we were told whether or not he would receive the artificial heart? Knowing they had a family and they stayed strong together through the loss of a child, was extremely moving. Every Womans experience is different. It was hard to read through rear filled eyes. I too sufferer two miscarriages. Something I could have never put into words. A beautiful happy outcome in the end was relieving. Thank you to an amazing writer that has made me excited to read again. Once I started a book I had to read and not put down until it was finished.
