NEW RELEASE!!! Crowne Rules by C.D. Reiss! + MY REVIEW

“Dante is a Dominant male hero who steals your breath in all the right ways.” —Joey W. Hill

Crowne Rules, an all-new DELICIOUSLY Decadent froced proximity standalone from New York Times bestselling author C.D. Reiss is available now!

What happens when fire and ice are forced into close proximity?

With the paparazzi hot on her heels, Mandy Bettencourt is desperate for somewhere to hide, and her best friend has just the place.

It’s perfect. No Internet. No phone. A deep bathtub she’s soaking in when HE shows up.
Her best friend’s brother, Dante Crowne. Rich as a cardinal sin and handsome enough to piss off the devil. A man with a reputation for unforgettable bedroom games.

Mandy got an early taste of them in high school–for seven minutes in a closet. She can tell you, the rumors are all true.

Dante knows he’s got a reputation for a lot of things, including a love of solitude.
But there’s a beautiful socialite in his bathtub, and the memory of those seven minutes isn’t inspiring him to kick her out.
So he offers her a deal.
If she wants to stay, she has to work.
If she makes a mistake, she’s corrected with pink hand marks on her backside.

That’s the deal.
Beg for it or leave it.

He’s surprised when she gets on her knees, and he’s even more surprised when she likes the punishment.
The most shocking thing, though, is how much he’s starting to like her.

They can’t stay in paradise forever.
Los Angeles awaits.
But an old nemesis sets his sights on tearing them apart, and Dante may be the one left begging.

**Crowne Rules is a complete STANDALONE. You don’t have to read any of the Crowne Brothers books to pick this up, but you might want to once you’re done with Dante.**

MY REVIEW:
Be still my heart! Another alpha Crowne brother hits the dust. And the old adage the bigger they are the harder they fall is so true with the hot dominant hunk, Dante Crowne. He’s a big guy that’s all about control but he’s outdone when the vivacious Mandy Bennecourt lands in his quite haven. The Crowne house in Cambria is off the grid in a way that socialite Mandy is not used to but one she needs during this trying time in her life. She’s a mess. The kind of mess that drives the always controlled Dante crazy. These two have a surprising history as an unusual teen encounter is hard to forget and leads Dante on a future path. His backstory is interesting and affects his life in a surprising way. Dante was the dark, mysterious brother in the previous stories with his BDSM clubs and closed off persona. I was so looking forward to his story but it wasn’t as harsh as I expected. His romance with Mandy had moments of throbbing dominance but also sweet moments. I loved that Mandy turned the tables on him and there are encounters where she ruled the alpha. Both Dante and Mandy had tortured romances which lead to the question; could they ever be happy? I was kind of in and out with this romance. I loved their history and it’s affect on mature Dante and Mandy willingness to pick up where they left off. Dante could turn it on and had me in his palm with his forcefulness and control. Spank me, please. (Don’t forget the comma!) Mandy is terrific with her big heart and sweetness. Just what Dante’s needs in his life. Some light to his darkness. I love the Crowne family and was sad we didn’t get more of them in this story like the first two stories. I was destroyed when the author’s note at the end said that this was the last of the Crownes. No! I want sister Lyric’s story plus Colton and Liam’s. I love this series with the sexy Crowne brothers and the wonderful family. Mom and Dad are fabulous. This was something different from the first two which I appreciated. I love this author’s spectacular writing and her exceptional storytelling. Her characters always come alive and Dante and Mandy are just outstanding. All shades of wonderful. Not my favorite of the series but still a must read.

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.
