"CD Reiss writes the best erotica I have ever read."
Meredith Wild, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Hacker Series
The stunning conclusion to the New York Times Bestseller.
There’s one, unbreakable rule in the game.
Stay collected. Compartmentalize. Think your next move through. Never let your heart dictate your tactics.
The heart is impulsive.
The heart makes bad decisions.
The heart doesn’t see the long game.
Because the heart may have decided to get Adam back, but when the endgame comes, the heart’s going to be the first thing to break.
The first word that I can think to describe Separation Games by CD Reiss is "Raw". It is an emotional roller-coaster of a read. As soon as the ARC hit my kindle for an honest review I had moved it up on my list of "I want to read now" even though I wasn't ready for it. I like an impatient person that I am wanted to just take a sneak peek at the first page and then walk away and read it next on my list, that did not happen. I ended staying up late and flipping page after page like a mad woman, I was on a mission of need to know...NOW!
In this conclusion to Marriage Games, it was everything I expected from Diana and Adam Steinbeck. Two people pushing and pulling their emotional marriage strings til one or the other person breaks. In this story it is told from Diana's point of view, in the first book her husband Adam opens up her world to the life of a Dominate and Submissive relationship. I have to say Diana will frustrate the reader with her battle between heart and mind. How far is she willing to go to win back her husband or will she push to far and lose him forever?
Adam Steinbeck knows what he wants but finds himself pushing her away, but never to far. His reasons are questionable, heartfelt and drew me in like an addict. I loved him and hated him at the same time I wanted that happy ever after, but are his expectations to high of a price to play?
OMG!!! Separation Games just thinking about this story sends chills down my spine. The love and possessiveness between this couple is off the wall scorching hot. The games they will play to keep or push each other away is mind-blowing. CD Reiss reaches into your heart and mind and had me questioning how far is a person willing to go to save their marriage? Is losing oneself and willing to walk away with a broken heart worth that one person you can't live without? 5 emotional must read stars.

He took my hand, putting it in his lap as if it was finally home. “What are we doing?” he asked.
“Like it’s our job.”
“If you’re going to do something, I say, do it all the way.”
He squeezed my hand. I was jarred by the way he looked in the direction of the window, but not through it. He didn’t look like the commanding Dominant who had been my partner for the past few weeks. As handsome as ever, and graceful and sharp, a leader and a decider, but not the same.
He faced me. “I don’t know how to fix this.”
The streetlights glinted off the light in one eye and his jaw locked, catching things he’d never say. He looked like a man I knew and abandoned. Manhattan Adam.
“We can’t fix it,” I said, putting his hand in my lap, watching our clasped hands make a new form. I rubbed the outside of his thumb with mine, feeling it’s familiar shape, the strength of the knuckle and the texture of his skin on mine. “We have to build something new. And we can.” I looked up from our hands to his face.
Could I make him feel my optimism? Could I take a piece of it onto a fork and lift it to his lips? Would they part? Would he let me lay it on his tongue? Would he chew and swallow, saying “I do. I do believe we can, I do.”
He didn’t say that. He didn’t believe, but his lips needed to touch my belief and his tongue needed to taste my hope.
I don’t know if I kissed him or if he kissed me, but it felt like a first kiss, with full quivering that left me paralyzed at his nearness. The act of two tongues tasting each other was so intimate between strangers, so taken for granted over time, and so rarely is the wonder of it felt through to the bone.
He was licorice. Fennel and leather. And he moved like cool water, reacting to my movements, countering with his hands and his mouth, covering me with his attention. The kiss was the sway of sex, the smell of it, the carnal desire without the promise of anything but another dance.
About the Author
CD Reiss is a New York Times bestselling author. 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.
