The stunning conclusion to the New York Times Bestseller.

These are the unbreakable rules in the game.
Stay collected. Compartmentalize. Think your next move through. Never let your heart dictate your tactics.

The heart is impulsive.
The heart makes bad decisions.
The heart doesn’t see the long game.

Because the heart may have decided to get Adam back, but when the endgame comes, the heart’s going to be the first thing to break.

An absolute heart-wrenching journey that comes to an end in such a beautiful and poignant way. Adam and Diana’s story has forever left an impression on me. CD Reiss will break your heart a million times, but when you’re close to the end, and she is putting the pieces back together one by one, you will be forever grateful that she took you on this heartbreaking and eye-opening ride. 

“I was on the edge of ecstasy. I didn’t care if he loved me. Didn’t care if I got hurt. I wanted this drug right now, for as long as I could get it.”

The bar was set so damn high with book one in this amazing duet, MARRIAGE GAMES. Did that stop CD Reiss from giving us a KICK ASS conclusion to Adam and Diana’s story? Hell no! It did not! Reiss will have you on the edge of ecstasy with each turn of the page. The emotional pull from this story will consume you and leave you begging for more. I’m a complete masochist when it comes to Reiss’ writing. I yearn for the heartbreak and the pain of her characters, because in the end, the bigger the break, the more satisfying the ending. This queen of erotic romance holds nothing back in this duet. She writes it in a way where you become COMPLETELY invested in these characters. You feel their pain, their suffering, and their struggles. You feel their hope, their intensity, and their happiness. It’s a rollercoaster ride you will never want to get off of. You may think you know how Adam and Diana will end up, but believe me when I tell you, you have NO IDEA! Experience the greatness that is CD Reiss. Let her take you on a tumultuous journey full of heartbreak and tenderness. You will come out better for it, believe me. THIS is an epic conclusion you DO NOT want to miss.

He took my hand, putting it in his lap as if it was finally home. “What are we doing?” he asked.

“Screwing up.”

“Like it’s our job.”

“If you’re going to do something, I say, do it all the way.”

  He squeezed my hand. I was jarred by the way he looked in the direction of the window, but not through it. He didn’t look like the commanding Dominant who had been my partner for the past few weeks. As handsome as ever, and graceful and sharp, a leader and a decider, but not the same. 

He faced me. “I don’t know how to fix this.”

The streetlights glinted off the light in one eye and his jaw locked, catching things he’d never say. He looked like a man I knew and abandoned. Manhattan Adam.

“We can’t fix it,”I said, putting his hand in my lap, watching our clasped hands make a new form. I rubbed the outside of his thumb with mine, feeling it’s familiar shape, the strength of the knuckle and the texture of his skin on mine. “We have to build something new. And we can.”I looked up from our hands to his face.

Could I make him feel my optimism? Could I take a piece of it onto a fork and lift it to his lips? Would they part? Would he let me lay it on his tongue? Would he chew and swallow, saying “I do. I do believe we can, I do.”

He didn’t say that. He didn’t believe, but his lips needed to touch my belief and his tongue needed to taste my hope.

I don’t know if I kissed him or if he kissed me, but it felt like a first kiss, with full quivering that left me paralyzed at his nearness. The act of two tongues tasting each other was so intimate between strangers, so taken for granted over time, and so rarely is the wonder of it felt through to the bone.

He was licorice. Fennel and leather. And he moved like cool water, reacting to my movements, countering with his hands and his mouth, covering me with his attention. The kiss was the sway of sex, the smell of it, the carnal desire without the promise of anything but another dance.

“CD Reiss writes the best erotica I have ever read.”  

Meredith Wild, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Hacker Series

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.
