This is not a romance. This is not a pat little ending about Jonathan and I riding off into the sunset. I knew I was never destined for that, but no one warned me about the pain. No one told me about the hurt. No one told me what I'd risk for him.
I'll do anything to make it right. Anything. You think I won't kill for him? You're wrong.
I have to earn my happily ever after, and we have to survive it.

I'm a relatively new book worm... I've been reading religiously for a fewish years now. I've read a hellacious amount of contemporary & erotica books & series, including Fifty Shades, Crossfire, Neighborly Affection, Hansel, Sloth & many more. This series is one of my select favorites. I can't number them because I love them all for different reasons. Just know this one is in the tippy top of the list. If you're into suspense, new love, etc. this has it all! CD is an amazing writer with a wonderful wit that reflects in her characters. This is a must read & listen! The audio brings that extra something! Do it for yourself!
My review headline says it all really, this was a tough one for me to get through from start to finish. Perhaps I'd had my fill of Jo Raylan singing, and it wasn't until this third installment in the series that I felt like there just wasn't enough of Christian Fox's narration. Hours of the 'Goddess' and Jonathan's constant struggles that seemed to only get fixed through angry sex, was a bit much, but, all in all I was happy to see some loose ends tied, and these two finally find a happy medium. After two really brilliant preceding stories the final installment left me lacking a bit, but, CD Reiss is a great author and I will definitely purchase and recommend future books.
This chapter, of this series, is almost unbearable. I know I have never cried so much. This is so well written that my emotions became the characters'. So if you are wanting the typical patterned romance, then you are in for a surprise.
As far as the sexual relationship between the two characters? I'm not sure how I feel about that. I understand the relationship between pleasure and pain and I am certainly not a prude, but the level of their violence was uncomforting. In my opinion, it's one thing to get carried away with rough play and cause bruising and soreness, and another thing to set out for that goal from the beginning. It makes me, a psychologist degree holder, think of a abusive past instead of a sexual kink. Maybe my unique situation clouds my judgment. Be that as it may, the story is powerful and is a story that will stay with me; a sign of brilliant writing.

I'm not one who understands that pain/pleasure thing. I just can't empathize with that, but the intensity of this story and its characters makes me understand it a little more. I have fallen in love with this family.

Love this series! Well worth every credit and every minute. I would recommend these books any day!
This series was simply amazing, had me on the edge of my seat every chapter! I loved the characters, their flaws and endearing qualities paired to make realistic individuals that, within them, I could lose myself. I appreciated the relation to life experiences and was so glad to hear Jonathan's point of view as time worn on. Start from the beginning, immerse yourself inside, and come out from this series with warmth and a smile (but sad that it's over).
Always ready for my next smutty story.
Really enjoyed the writing style and the narrators. Really just a cocktail of awesome. Such a realistic story with some very hot sex and dirty mouths.
I can't say enough about CD Reiss's writing! She sucks you into her stories and keeps you wanting more, as for the narration of this series BRAVO! They did a wonderful job and I can't imagine a better set of voices to capture Monica and Jonathan.
I enjoyed bundle 1 (although it had too many unnecessary chapters), bundle 2 was okay and bundle 3 seemed almost unnecessary. I am glad the all of the questions were answered, but the story as a whole just seemed to drag and drag. Chapters upon chapters of what felt like rambling just to extend the story. I think this series could have been shortened to two books, with all information maintained, if the unnecessary fluff was taken out.
