"CD Reiss writes the best erotica I have ever read."
Meredith Wild, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Hacker Series

The stunning conclusion to the New York Times Bestseller.
There’s one, unbreakable rule 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.

What would you be willing to do for someone you love?  Would you be willing to give them up in order to protect them?  How can you live knowing the one you love is in the arms of another because you walked away?  Adam and Diana are going through the madness of reconciling their emotions with their needs.  Divorce is a madness and no one goes through it without being changed. There are no guarantees of happiness after divorce, just the assurance that you will come out of it changed and facing an entire new life, whether you are ready or not.

The visceral analysis of this dysfunctional marriage continues.  Now that Diana has discovered Adam's other side, she craves him.  She has been given just a taste of what it is like to be his sub and she will not settle for less.  But how do you merge the dichotomy of loving your independence while at the same time submitting to the demands and punishments of a Master?

In the meantime, Adam is deeply confused.  Deep down he loves Diana, but he thinks he cannot love a sub.  How to reconcile his need to master her with his love for her innocent self is the dilemma.

This has been an amazing series.  Our author has somehow been able to put on paper the emotional upheaval our characters are going through as they discover who they are for once.  After 5 years of marriage, they discover how little they know of each other's emotions.  All they know is that there is a deep love they feel for each other ~whether it will survive this upheaval or not, only time will tell.  Both are confused and in their own way, fighting to hang on to each other.  A masterpiece of emotional understanding.

I received a copy of this book from the author.  I am reviewing it voluntarily because I enjoyed it so much.

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.

About the Author
CD Reiss is a New York Times bestselling author. 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.
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 chop a cord of wood.
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
