Publisher's Summary

Jonathan Drazen is a beautiful, damaged billionaire with a taste for obedience.

Monica is a struggling musician who obeys no man.

But she just made a wager with him - one she's sure she can win.

If she loses, she spends the night under his command.

If she wins...it doesn't matter. She just found out Jonathan doesn't lose his bets, and his women always end up where he wants them.

And this bet she’s about to lose? It’s going to turn into much, much more than she realizes.

Fan-Freaking-Tastic!

Where has C.D. Reiss been?! Wow she brings a new level of writing to the Erotic Romance genre! Really, I can’t think of another book in the genre that I gave a 5 stars rating. Sure there are others that I really like but it’s been a little while.

SONGS OF SUBMISSION: SEQUENCE ONE is books 1 -3 (BEG, TEASE & SUBMIT) in the Songs of Submission series by C.D. Reiss. They were originally released as a serial series and the books in the whole series are being produced in audio book format. I’m so glad that I got to listen to them all together. If I had to wait for TEASE after listening to BEG I would have gone nuts. LOL

We follow the relationship between Monica and Jonathan through them meeting and working through their sexual relationship where neither wants more. But of course after spending sometime together Monica starts to hope for more even though she knows that Jonathan is not capable of more.

But Jonathan keeps Monica coming back for more because of the mind blowing sex between them. But have no fear Reiss doesn’t write just great sex scenes. No Monica and Jonathan are deep characters with a deeper connection. And there are a few interesting side characters that bring something to the party.

While listening to SEQUENCE ONE I laughed, was turned on, on the edge of my seat and heart broken. The writing and narration had me feeling like I was in the story with Monica and Jonathan. SEQUENCE ONE was a total emotional ride and I want to ride it again and again.

Jo Raylan brought C.D. Reiss’s words and characters to life perfectly! Jo’s voice and Reiss’s writing totally sucked me in within the first 20 minutes of the audio. Jo Raylan is a new name but she’s not new to the narration game. She narrates under another name (don’t ask because if I told you, I’d have to kill you. LOL) but even though she’s a pro under another name I’ve got to tell ya it was like listening to another person.

If I had not known Jo used a pseudonym I would have thought, hey she kind of sounds like someone I know but it can’t be the same person because Jo’s pitch and delivery really is something new. Her voice is smooth, seductive and she nails the male voice almost better than the female voices. It’s hard (at least for me) to find a female narrator that can be spot on with the males as well as the females. And the part where Jo sings Monica’s song. WOW

The team of Reiss and Raylan on my must listen list. If they are part of it I want more of it!

I cannot wait for SONGS OF SUBMISSION: SEQUENCE TWO books 4-6 (CONTROL, BURN & RESIST) to be released on audio. We get some Jonathan’s POV and I can’t wait to hear what’s going on in his head.

More PLEASE!!!!

Any additional comments?

Fifty Shades of Grey? What's that? That is how you will feel after starting this series!!! This first installment was AMAZING. I am checking everyday for the next installment to come out. Its main characters are really well written. Everything about the book is just so well throughout and interwoven. The heroin is strong, funny has just enough attitude. While our bad boy is just the perfect amount of BAD without making him seem unreal. Just listen to the book because not only is it already a great book but the narrator Jo Raylan, brings it up another notch and you just can't stop listening to it! You don't want to know how long I stayed up just so I could finish the book. Did I mention I NEED the next one now! So what are you waiting for go LISTEN and thank me later..:o)

Worthy for reading again.

Story is good with very believable situations. CD Reiss has a talented imagination. Narration for Jonathan is beyond great. His voice alone is very sexy and stimulating. Fantastic job, can't wait to start on book 2 to continue the story. Thanks Jo Raylan. Most female narrators can hit the mark to bring the book to life with fire 🔥.

Aural Perfection

This book had so many wonderful BDSM elements. I loved how the whole thing played out and I listened to the rest of the books as well. Jo Raylan's low sultry voice was so perfect, and her lower register made for some excellent male dialogue bits. She fully committed to every type of scene she read, including the intimate ones. So magnificent.

If I could give it more than 5 stars I would!

It's no secret that I am a huge fan of CD Reiss so I couldn't wait to listen to the "Songs of Submission" series on audiobook. Jonathan and Monica's story is one of my favourites so I had high hopes for the audible edition and thankfully, I was not disappointed. I have listened to a huge amount of audiobooks over the last few months and this series was by far my favourite. Not just because of the fantastic story but also because of the narrators, Jo Rylan and Christian Fox. They were superb at portraying the two main characters.

If you haven't read/listened to this series before, prepare yourself for a story that is filled with sex, passion, drama and romance. I loved every single minute of listening to this audiobook. It made me blush countless many times with the amount of erotic moments that play out throughout the book. Jonathan's voice made me tingle all over, he sounded so deliciously sexy. Just how I expected Jonathan to sound and as for Monica, she was simply perfect. Jo Rylan had the ideal voice for Monica. Husky, gritty and so sexy and she even sounded brilliant when it came to the parts where Monica sang. I don't think that CD Reiss could have cast the audiobook any better.

If you are thinking of listening to any audiobook, I implore you to put this one at the top of your list. If I could give it more that 5 hearts I would! I loved every minute of listening to this series and I know that it won't be long before I step back into Jonathan and Monica's world again because I cannot resist their insanely hot story.

I loved this!

A well written story, my first by this author but not my last!
A strong and sassy female lead who made me laugh out loud. A different take on the usual DS story.

WOW!!!! LOVED IT

Where does Beg Tease Submit - Sequence One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This entire series would rank up there with one of my favourites

What about Jo Raylan’s performance did you like?

Jo Raylan would have to be one of the best narrators that I have heard. Her voice isbhauntingly unforgettable.

Any additional comments?

So well written, not at all predictable. I thoroughly enjoyed this series. I can't wait to read more books by CD Reiss

The whole package.

It's been awhile since I gave 5 stars to a series.I had not read any of CD Reiss books before and was prompted by others reviews. I was looking for a more engaging read, a author that could lift the level of this genre to something more wittily written and original. Thank you Reiss..this is great great stuff.
The NARRATION..holy hotness batman it was JUST BRILLIANT. Thank you for going that extra mile....I was very disappointed that the complete series was not in audible and I down loaded the rest on kindle to read...but it just wasn't to same..not even close.
We just need more Audible for the rest of the series and let's get greedy and demand more of Reiss's books.
