Prince Charming an all-new sexy standalone from New York Times bestselling author CD Reiss is LIVE!
Prince Charming by CD Reiss
Release Date: January 4th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Keaton Bridge is exactly the kind of guy a straight-arrow like Cassie doesn’t need.
For one thing, he’s a criminal—and she fights crime for a living. And being criminally handsome isn’t helping her say no, either. Everything about him screams trouble, from his British accent to his mysterious past.
And Cassie doesn’t do trouble.
Keaton’s got his own trouble. He’s trying to go legit, and an FBI agent hanging around is the last thing that will help his credibility. All it took was one night of passion to sear her into his skin. Now he can’t imagine living happily ever after without her.
All they have to do is walk away.
But neither of them ever walks away from danger.

I have to say I found the title an interesting one. I’ve always been led to believe that a prince charming would save his damsel in distress but in this case, not is at all what it appears to be. And the cover conjures up a sense of mystery which couldn’t have been better seeing as the main man is clouded in a world of espionage! Thrown into a conundrum of hacker words which of late has become Reiss’ forte, my first impression was would I be able to grasp the cyber terms and who is the real him behind them! I’d conjured up a vague idea of him in in King of Code, but little did I realise until well into this standalone that the man of many facets would go out of his way to confuse not only me, but also the leading lady! So, talking about methods behind his thoughts and desires isn’t in it, but I can honestly say fathoming out how he ticked was a joy in itself… She, the woman in question who’d caught his eager eye for reasons to be divulged, was in for a ride and a half. And I freakin’ well loved their contrasting aspirations! She wants in, he wants out and say no more!
The author’s character development is indisputably good. Keaton Bridge is charmingly Brit to the core. And to top the lot, the author has pulled off his British enunciation to a tee and that’s coming from a Brit! His is a modus operandi calculatingly aloof; reservedly subtle, quite perfectly English! Cassie is ambitious, wary, her weaknesses controlled up to a point; however, up against rules and regulations on the reverse side complicates matters like you would never believe. Ahh…but here’s the trick, Reiss offers her readers a plot that makes the reader doubt just about everything!
No spoiler here! Even though Keaton Bridge had me at the drop of a hat which was really not on considering he’s an online paradox of anonymity and cause for such concern, there’s a ring of truth to all cloak and dagger situations of trust, secrecy and abounding intrigue. Will he give Cassie the valid codes she so sorts after is for you to discover. Is it infatuation, love or does he have something more up his impeccable sleeve to keep her on her toes? And more important, who plays who?
Narrated from dual points of view in present tense, Reiss’ offering has grabbed this reader’s attention with sassy banter, angst in the right places, a digital age storyline and without a doubt, the build-up to amorous scenes nothing less than swoon-worthy. I loved meeting up with Harper and Taylor again and the ending…to say I was gobsmacked would be putting it mildly. The missing star; perhaps my impatience for what was to come in the first quarter, or maybe too many codes and computer jargon which quite honestly shouldn’t have got the better of me but all in all, I highly recommend one-clicking this standalone! Bravo CD!
About the Author
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.
