SYNOPSIS:
A brand new, edgy, sexy standalone from CD Reiss.
Her name is Cinnamon. Cin for short. Band mates Strat and Indy don’t know anything about her except she’s smart as hell and sexy as heaven. They can’t agree who gets her, so they do the only thing two best friends could do. They declare her off limits to both of them.
Margie, AKA Cinnamon-you-can-call-me-Cin, has a thing or two to tell these guys.
Nobody “gets” her. She’ll let them know which one she wants when she can decide between them. Until then, their little pledges and promises aren’t her problem.
Her family is her problem. Her friends. And the world-famous blues rocker who has her cornered. He’s her problem too.
This may be one problem she can’t fix without some help.
Secret Sins is a standalone novel with an HEA, an edge just where you need it, and a shocking twist at the end. It’s recommended for people over the age of 18 with an open mind and a love of super hot stories.

This was my reaction upon finishing Secret Sins...

"OMG! THAT IS THE MOST ... WHAT JUST HAPPENED!?!
WHAT. JUST. HAPPENED?!?! 
I'm .... I'm sorry, what?! What! WHAT! WHAT! WHAT! WHAT! WHAT! WHATTTTTTTTT!!!! ****screams**** 
OH. MY. GOD! 
That is SHOCKING! 
That is... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
WHAT THE WHAT! 
Omg! I can't take it. I can't. :::freaks out::: I DIDN'T SEE IT. EVER. AT ALL. NOT ONCE. I NEVER SAW THAT COMING! Omg! I am so stunned. Did that just happen?
THAT. JUST. HAPPENED!! 
I'm so shocked. Hahaha! I feel like I have to go back to the beginning and read Secret Sins again, because I can't believe what I just read! WHAT THE FRIGGIN WHAT ::gasp::"

This book has a twist that I NEVER. EVER. AT ANY POINT saw coming. It was truly shocking. I had to go back and read several pages again just to make sure I was reading everything right. Secret Sins is a scandalous, shocking addition to the Drazen storyline. It will leave you gasping, dying, on the edge of your seat, crying, "NO WAY... NO FREAKING WAY. THAT IS UNREAL!'

Now... if you know me, you know that I am a HUGE CD Reiss fangirl. My passionate affair with her books started when I read the Songs of Submission series. I absolutely LOST MY MIND over Jonathan Drazen. 

LOST. MY. FREAKING. MIND! 

The dynamic of the Drazen bunch is complex, compelling and beyond intriguing. The way each of them functions has me hooked. I'm addicted. Each character is distinct in personality. They all pull you in even when you don't think you'll care. And that was me with Margie Drazen's story. To be honest, I saw that this was her book and I thought, "Ugh... I don't know. I don't know if her story is going to be an "Angie" story." I was hesitant about it. Not because I didn't think that CD Reiss could write a good story for her. CLEARLY, she can, she did, and I have 100% faith in her unending talent (which is why I read the book), but because it was Margie. Margie Drazen has always seemed like she had all her stuff together. So what could be so great about her? 

WELP... **laughs in disbelief** LET ME TELL YOU. 

This was a whirlwind. I'm still processing. I still can't believe what I read. I'm still like, "WHAT THE WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT!" It's so stunning, because I just never saw it coming. I just never saw this. And I can't help but delight in this little wicked web that CD Reiss has crafted. God, I want to say so much to you about it, but I'm going to say nothing. NOTHING except... 

GO read. 
GO READ. 
GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO READ. 

If you are a fan of the Drazen bunch, this is going to burn through you like a wild fire. You are going to be DYING over this twist! If you have NOT met the Drazen's, I still think you are going to be left with your jaw hanging open and your eyes double blinking in SHOCK. 

It's SCANDALOUS. 
A TWIST I HAVE NEVER SEEN IN A BOOK. 

And of course the writing is supreme, far above the rest. CD Reiss remains the Queen of my little heart. ALWAYS. AND FOREVER. THE END.

My Rating:


CD Reiss is a USA Today and Amazon 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.

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.
