About the Author

CD Reiss is a NY 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 embed TV story structure in her head well enough for her to take a big risk on a TV series structured erotic series called Songs of Submission. It's about a kinky billionaire hung up on his ex-wife, an ingenue singer with a wisecracking mouth; art, music and sin in the city of Los Angeles.

Critics have dubbed the books "poetic," "literary," and "hauntingly atmospheric," which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think she's some sort of braggart who's too good to give the toilets a once-over every couple of weeks or chop a cord of wood.

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

My heart hurts over the ending but other than that, I loved this book! Fiona always does the unexpected. She is so different. The bond all the siblings have is amazing though! A must read.

Wow, I am so hooked on this series. It's so freaking good, I absolutely love it. This story is so raw , dirty and all consuming. I love Fiona, she's such a mess and so flawed but so real and honest. My heart breaks for her. The way the book ended, dear lord, I'm gonna go crazy waiting for the next one. Elliot and Deacon, my gosh, can't wait to see what Fiona does. Did I mention that I freakin love this series? Cd Reiss rocks this genre.

C.D. Reiss writes stories that are unique and a little on the dark side. She writes stories that are raw, edgy, and unpredictable which is exactly what Use is. Ms. Reiss has the ability to grab hold of her readers from the very first page and holds on to them to the very end while keeping them on a roller coaster of emotions the whole time. Her readers experience the journey of her characters right along with them. Use is a twisted, delicious, very intriguing, super sexy story with lots of emotion that will keep you on the edge till the very end. And even then you are left with wanting more. This book has it all... drama, angst, regret, forgiveness, guilt, tension, pain, pleasure, lust, and passion.

Another incredible novella by C.D. Reiss.  This offering is the second in the Songs of Perdition series.  The research and detail that goes into her writing makes her stories more vivid and realistic. Use is raw and edgy.  Flashbacks, hypnosis and returned memories are very interesting tools for telling this tale.   The pace of the book is hot, and at times I felt as embroiled in the frenetic emotions of the Westonwood patients as they were.   I loved how masterfully C.D. Reiss weaves in details of her other books into each of her stories about the large and obscenely wealthy Drazen family.   The Songs of Perdition series takes place (or at least starts off) about sixteen years prior to the Songs of Submission series, while the Songs of Corruption series takes place concurrent to the Songs of Submission series.  In each series, various Drazen family members have roles, and  each of the series has beamed the spotlight on one of the siblings.   The Songs of Perdition series can be a tough read.  Fiona is a white-hot mess.  Her emotional baggage is weighing her down and the tide is rising.  Her vulnerability and her inner spirit make her attractive to both her hot psychiatrist and her gorgeous long-time dom/boyfriend.   The intricate details of Fiona's story and layers of her personality are deftly peeled away with C.D. Reiss' intricately detailed storytelling.

I loved this book and the continuance of Fiona's story. I think she finally has some clarification of how she wants to go forth with her life and then the ending happens and I'm not so sure. I can't wait to get more of her story. Also in USE, we get to see more of Jonathan/Rachel's story and some questions are answered about them and their relationship. It was good to see some of Jonathan at sixteen and to see what brought on his "control".
