I must state from the outset that I personally feel that C.D. Reiss is an author whose romantic writing often tips into the realm of important literature. I am a serious "fangirl" and enjoy the layers of meaning, wit and world-building on display in all of her works. This short novella in this "1001 Dark Nights" format is but a brief taste of the mastery that this author owns with language, character development, story telling and oh the many ways she can create that lovely tension upon which the reader of romance gobbles up and begs for more. Yes, even in this a short novella.
Reading this story was like eating a one of a kind uniquely crafted rich creamy dessert... deliciously decadent, silky on the tongue, lovely sugar rush and satisfying. No one ever passes up a delicacy such as this. The experience remembered for a very long time.
We first meet our heroine, Raven beginning her new job. She is determined to leave all the past mistakes she made at her previous employments behind. She wants to keep her work life free from any sexual or relationship entanglements. Yet, on her first day, she meets him, Roman Bianchi. He is startlingly beautiful, he dresses like an alpha male in tailor made clothing over a striking figure of a man. He is a smart lawyer with a commanding presence; and then there are those eyes:
"Green. Brown. Gray. Was that called hazel? Or had this man invented something completely new?"-Raven
The reader is immediately drawn into the internal struggle of Raven's fierce sexual attraction and her resolve not to reveal it in any way or act impulsively on it. The attraction is mutual. Of course this new environment of "forbidden by company policy" creates the "must not touch or go there but my body and heart are screaming to go there" conundrum. Roman, apart from his uncontrollable attraction to Raven, also fancies himself having a hidden agenda in trying to get closer to her. Beyond this, the machinations of the top level of both their managements also create yet another layer of complexity.
Of course as delicious romances go...Raven and Roman do touch...do kiss..do all those other lovely things and in ways that the author keeps fresh, hot, hawt, hot, and so exciting. All the while keeping the reader thoroughly engaged. We fall in love with their love or is it simply "lust"?...as they fall. This heady feeling and ultimately the noble intent and actions of our main characters give the reader a thoroughly satisfying treat.
I could end my review here but I noticed that this read created some questions in my mind buried in the narrative and in the discussion of the project our two main characters were endeavoring to complete. These are good questions, relevant questions, questions answered as a society that would strengthen the fabric of our society for decades forward. I detected no particular political agenda hinted at by some reviewers. The first important question is pay equity between the genders. Paying a just and fair wage to all persons means food on the table, rent paid, family security to the woman who is the family bread winner. Endeavoring to accomplish this quantitatively is a fine and good thing.
The second question has really two parts. The first is not allowing any misogynistic bias or harassment against woman in the workplace by judging their intellect or ability solely on gender. This is a difficult one even in the current culture of Silicon Valley. The second part is distinguishing between genuine affection and respect that is inherent in a true attraction between employees from behaviors that can be misconstrued as "quid pr quo" sexual favors i.e. sexual harassment. Just as pay inequity issues leave a company vulnerable to lawsuit, so do patterns of sexual harassment. One solution is to adopt a zero tolerance fraternization policy. Seems like a simple solution but is this realistic? After all, "the heart wants what it wants."
Discovering the questions and your answers along with the answer to this question found by Raven and Roman is part of all the sexy time and "feels" our author lays out in this wonderfully created tale of a 21st Century Prince among men (or really "boys" to be more accurate).
One click to meet him and his beautiful love, Raven.
While Prince Roman is book 1.5 in the King of Code series, this book is a complete standalone. When Raven Crosby decides that she needs change in her life and more stability, she decides to forego office liasons and hookups and starts a new job with a fresh outlook on life. But then enter Roman Bianchi: The perfect monkey wrench in her plan. Gahhh!! The fireworks between them were explosive!
I thought Raven and Roman were fantastic. I loved their back and forth banter and their hacking game of one uppsmanship. It was an added element of excitement in their chemistry and foreplay. I loved that Raven looked at Roman as the antithesis to "stock options and a pension" aka stability but she was so drawn to him. This was such a great book and an even better addition to the series! Bravo! 4 stars! ~Ratula
If you loved King of Code (KoC), then you will love this book. It takes you back to the hacker world and again it has this super seductive female empowering undertone. Personally, I love this aspect of the story. A kickarse heroine always gets me going, and Raven was just it for me. She is feisty and sassy and strong. It really makes her standout from a sea of heroines. As with KoC this book does have some technical language, personally I liked it. I love that Ms Reiss doesn't talk down to her readers, she isn't that author that will dumb things down... again, I love this and it makes every single one of her plots sophisticated and grounded. I'm not saying that you have to be a tech genius to understand this story, you really don't, but it's nice to have something to pique your interest aside from the sex, chemistry and romance. Honestly, this plot is developed to perfection. Considering how short this story is, it reads like a full length novel. You don't feel like it's been rushed or like parts have been skipped. Every detail is there in HD.
For me both Roman and Raven were beautiful characters and I loved them from the off. They have this sexy and playful banter that is akin to intelligible foreplay. Everything about them is so well though out. Their connection, interactions and intelligence meld together to form this incredibly alluring and butterfly inducing chemistry that has you salivating. I seriously adored these two, like a lot A LOT.
This is definitely a must read. It was stunning and true to Christine's cunning writing, unpredictable. It had me completely enthralled from beginning to end. Prince Roman is probably one of my favourite CD Reiss books, King of Code is still up there for me. For a short story this book packs a helluva a lot of sass, smarts and sexy.
