Fiona Drazen, sex addict, submissive slave, celebutante, trapped in a mental ward until Dr. Elliot Chapman can help her remember why she's there. But once she does, she might not want to go home to the Master she tried to kill.

***This is the first of a serial. It's about 120 pages and ends in a cliffhanger, because that's how I roll. There's also a ton of drug use, and educated men who like dirty sex, because that's also how I roll***

This same exact story appeared in the banned BEND anthology.


❝What was the last thing I remembered?❞

 Captivated. That is how I feel whenever I dive into a CD Reiss book. She has a way with words that just leaves me stunned. When the book begins you feel like you are right alongside Fiona Drazen and her drug haze. I had no idea what the hell was going on and neither did Fiona! It was crazy! CD Reiss always knows how to start off a series with a bang, and boy did she pique my interest with KICK! There is quite a bit going on in only 120 pages or so. KICK is a story that will mess with your mind, jumble your thoughts, and leave you feeling strung out. KICK gives you just a glimpse into the messed up lives of these three characters. Just when you think you are starting to understand these main characters, their actions cause you to back up and try again.

❝I was a party waiting to happen. I was an addict. I was his,❞

Now, the author warns you that there is one hell of a cliffhanger, so you have been warned. That’s not to say you still won’t scream and shout at the end like I did, but don’t judge! I would also like to warn you that this isn’t a pretty love story. This is the story of Fiona Drazen, sex and drug addict. The young, out of control, socialite finds herself in a psych ward and is accused of stabbing her Master. Details and events are sketchy, and her memory of the event is gone. Dr. Chapman (another player in the game) tries hypnosis to jog her memory. Bits and pieces come back and Fiona does NOT like what she is remembering. Trying to find control in an out of control situation becomes most difficult, and just when she thinks she is finally free, reality sets in and she is thrust right back into the madness. 

KICK is a mind fuck waiting to happen, and I thought it was pretty damn great! I love that Fiona is messed up. I love that Deacon is such a mystery, and I love that we are just scratching the surface with Dr. Chapman. All I have left to say is…





USE, Songs of Perdition Book Two


It was a very interesting situation, up there on Maundy,” Elliot said.

“Nothing like it in the world. It’s a safe place for people like me.”

“People like you? Can you be more specific?” He ran his finger on the edge of his blotter, and a chill went up my inner thighs.

“People like me means, I don’t know. Fuckers. We fuck because it’s what we do. Bus drivers drive. Accountants account. Policemen police. I’m a fucker. I fuck.”


About CD Reiss

CD Reiss is a New York Times 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 give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
