Marriage Games: The Games Duet by CD Reiss



That’s all Adam Steinbeck demands of his wife.

Thirty days in a remote cottage, doing everything he demands. After that, he’ll sign her divorce papers and give her their company.


That’s how long he has to rediscover the man he once was. The Dominant Master he hid when he fell in love with her five years ago.


She wants their production company badly enough to go to the cottage for a month. Cut off ties to the world and do his bidding. She can submit to him with her body, but her heart will never yield.

She thinks this is his pathetic attempt to repair their marriage.

She’s wrong.

About the Author

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 gave her a big enough ego to try her hand at novels. She’ll tell you all about it out back, where a cord of wood awaits.

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

I had heard so much about this book, but hadn't gotten around to buying it. Then I received a copy in my Romance Reveal subscription box. Why did I wait so long to read it? This was so amazing. While it definitely is not going to be a book for everyone, you should give it a chance, it is so worth it. It is intense and so much different than I expected. I finished it and immediately had to get the second book in the duet. I could not stop thinking about it and processing what I had read. Loved it!

This is my absolute favorite format of an audiobook, I guess it’s called a duet (Finally I know the correct term)!  I didn’t feel like the author was wasting the use of two narrators.  Sebastian York continues to be my favorite narrator, I do truly think I could listen to that man read anything.  This is the first audiobook I’ve listened to with Elena Wolfe but she was extraordinary.    I’m not too sure how to rate this novel, it didn’t really feel like a typical BDSM book, more along the lines of a painful relationship breakdown novel.  Adam and Diana's marriage broke up essential because he had been hiding a part of himself for their entire marriage.  He suppressed his inner Dom because in his mind he can’t love a submissive.  Adam didn’t realize that his wife is a sexual submissive or he ignored it.  Diane, constantly feeling like Adam wasn’t present in their life, finally has enough and decides to leave.  However, things are never that simple.   Marriage Games is very in the character's head space, albeit, Diana or Adams.  It can get rather dark at times.  Adam and Diana both surprised me by the end and since it ended on a cliffhanger I’ve already purchased the second book.   I am giving Marriage Games 4 Boundless stars, it was a surprising book, that kept me engaged with the characters and the ending leaves you bereft to know what happens next.

Only if couples that is divorcing will have another chance to rekindle their romance, this book is beyond hot. It is hard to put it down. I cannot wait for the second book, is it January yet? I read this in e-book but want to own a paperback copy as well. What a beautiful cover and so is the story. It is beyond BDSM. It a must read for me and loved every chapters of it and they are very long chapters as well. Five spanking stars for me please.

OMG!! This book ripped me apart. He gave up what he is for LOVE! I loved how the first half was told from Adam's pov and second half from Diana's. Well written can't wait till 1/2017 for the next one!

Adam and Diana have been together for 5 years. His entire life is turned upside down (again) when Diana tells him she wants a divorce. The depth of character in this book is almost overwhelming. We see the struggle, the pain, the fear. We also see the love, the adoration and the desire. There is so much substance that there is absolutely no way not to be pulled into their world - despite it being in upheaval as both of them know it. I love how in tune C.D. Reiss is with her male characters. Adam’s words and thoughts were expressed so well that I was actually disappointed when you switched over to Diana. I just wanted to keep being in Adam’s head – especially at the end. I’ve always felt more of a connection with the male characters when the author does it so well. CD Reiss is the QUEEN at producing male characters that we want to both devour and be devoted to. Seeing how their marriage has been perceived by each individually is a rare treat and should not be taken for granted. While the methods to the agreement of the 30 days in unconventional to say the least, it is both the best and worst thing that they could have done. Their personal growth and understanding of each other is both enlightening and staggering. Each are strong and independent in many ways and everything that occurs only highlights that fact. This is a page turner that I didn't want to end. It doesn't exactly end on a cliff, but with enough wanting that you'll wish it was January so that you can continue on with their tale. I highly recommend this one!

I've read everything that CD Reiss has written, but I think this one might be the best one yet. Adam and Diana are trying to make things easier for each other, even though neither of them realize it. I definitely didn't see it ending the way it did. Sometimes it's hard to give a review, because you want to give away to much. So I'll just say this, go 1-click this book, I promise you will not regret it. C.d. Reiss, you are an amazing writer, you keep us in the edge and then make us wait for the ending. I can't wait for the conclusion.

We’re all searching for that epic read and in Marriage Games I found a gem. Layered to make me think about the characters, their reasons why and predict what they might do or feel in the future. The story is written with a touch of brilliance turning words on the writing canvas into crystal clear pictures where every element and nuance of word, thought and emotion carries the story forward ensuring the perfect development in all areas and propelling the story into my forever favourites. Everything about it from the unique, accessible-to-all story arc, to the stunning erotic prose laced with dominance, submission and a delicate sadness, all of it captured my attention and ultimately my heart. The story begins with the depiction of a marriage that is broken. The how, the why and the possible restoration unfolds with each turn of the page where a unique Dom/sub relationship all meshed up with love is showcased, the exploration of which I truly appreciated and believed in. The protagonists captured my attention, made me care about their perspective and root for fulfilment of their proclivities and each other. Adam is absolutely fascinating in the way he views, lives and breathes his desires and lifestyle. Their marriage is in chaos and I loved seeing the exposure of their vulnerabilities and struggles. Diana, is a slow burn character and slowly, ever-so-slowly I began to love her through the eyes of Adam whose words and description of her are really quite beautiful. The prose eloquently toggles between the perfect past and the present which transitionally and structurally speaking is simply executed with a touch of perfection taking me to the exact story points that I needed to feel and comprehend the development of the characters and plot, exposing the dynamic of their relationship and allowing the story arc to organically evolve. Told in the first-person narrative from the perspective of Adam and then Diana, timed with excellence so just when I most needed to garner further understanding of Diana and her perspective, the author presented it to me. CD Reiss stamps her unique writing style all over Marriage Games. It’s succinct, tight and utterly on point with never a syllable wasted and utterly authentic character dialogue and thoughts. Showcasing the beauty of a Dom/sub relationship, the pleasure pain principle that I so love to engage and explore in my reading matter left my mind in state of wonder as I surmised and deduced with my reading buddies about what may happen in SEPERATION GAMES and how it will all play out. To know there is more for me to discover about the characters, more layers to peel away to aid my complete comprehension of all aspects of the story leaves me with the best possible feeling. I highly recommend to all readers who enjoy exquisitely written erotic romance with an engaging story that immediately captures one’s attention with the characters, plot and structure of the beautiful telling.
