Editorial Reviews

Review

Outstanding in every possible way and arguably CD Reiss's greatest writing achievement to date, Ruin is unleashed upon us in a torrent of love, sex, betrayal and revenge. This is a beautifully paced, grippingly written and overwhelmingly well crafted gem of a book that will be forever engraved on my memory as it slowly, inextricably builds towards its pulsating conclusion.Magnum Opus, I do believe. --Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews

The romance and passion between Theresa and Antonio was breathtaking. -- Totally Booked Blog

The deliciously despicable Capo is back! This isn't the story of some weak woman lead astray. Theresa hungers to be sullied by Antonio. Ruined. Passion, power and corruption- Ruin is explosively hot, expertly crafted, and perfectly titled.

The problem with reading CD Reiss is that, as a reader, you have to up your game. CD doesn’t fling words out onto the page until her writing quota is filled. She delicately crafts each sentence like a piece of art. Thus, one feels like they should sit up and pay attention. Put on pants and stop shoving teddy grahams into their mouth as they read. Respect the words.

Ruin is book 2 of the Songs of Corruption series, Theresa and Antonio’s story. Theresa is an heiress. Antonio is a mobster. What could possibly make these two work? They shouldn’t see anything in each other. They shouldn’t work.

Yet, as a reader you never question their love. You never have to “just go with it” for the sake of enjoying a fictional novel. These two, their love is genuine, and it will change their lives. Theresa doesn’t care about his past. She doesn’t care about his present. All she cares about is that he is her future.

For the first time in her life Theresa is free of the constraints that she’s placed on herself. She’s shattered the glass box she’s lived in and decided to own her own life, consequences be dammed. Society be damned, the mob be damned. It’s not quite that simple though. The mafia doesn’t trust outsiders anymore than Theresa’s moneyed family trusts the mafia.

Ruin should be read after book 1, Spin. There is a 3rd book yet to come, but both Spin and Ruin end with enough resolution that you will be okay waiting until the next installment.

Wow, this gritty, dirty, passionate, and combustible couple are full force in Ruin. I gobbled up their brand of crazy with fervor! I need my own Capo. It is a must that you read book one Spin prior to starting this. The saga continues with Theresa being held in a type of prison she can never walk away from: Antonio Spinelli.

Their world isn’t pretty. Neither of their worlds are, really. Just because Theresa comes from wealth and has a pedigree of sorts means nothing. The darkness that slithers in her family shows in her. Her need to be hurt, only Antonio can give her countered with love. They will perfectly ruin each other.

There is so much action and plotting. Families are at odds and old world ways are clamoring for light in the new. Simply put, it’s brilliant in a godfather kinda way.

There are already several other extremely detailed reviews of this book that provide thorough and accurate information about the details of Ruin. I'll just skip all that and say the following: CD Reiss is effing genius. Ruin is not 344 pages of a book, it's a 344 page experience. You can read a good book with just your eyes but Ruin is not that kind of book. You read this book with all of your senses. The language is so rich and descriptive that you can even hear and smell the things Reiss is describing. This is not some light weight erotic romance for bored housewives (though I love those too), no. This is a bad ass novel for grown ass women and men are invited to the party too.

I love that there is no moral high ground to be found in Ruin. There are just people doing what they need to do to survive and screwing without apology. Angst is ok but audacity is more fun and this book is full of audacity. Listen, if you're going to be all judgy and "people shouldn't hurt other peopleish," you don't have any business even reading this book. If you're looking to just get wild and delve into something intriguing, hot and fast, Ruin is for you. You're welcome.

“Antonio, the catalyst of my dissolution, the destroyer of my façade.”

Songs of Corruption is the whirlwind saga of alleged mobster Antonio Spinelli and Theresa Drazen. It’s a sequel series to Songs of Submission and Songs of Perdition and thus most enjoyed if read after and in order:
Book 1: Spin
Book 2: Ruin
Book 3: Untitled

In SPIN (book 1) heiress, socialite, part-time script supervisor and former head of accountingTheresa Drazen, Tink aka Contessa met a man who rocked her world and gave her an excuse to break out of her good-girl-mold. Attorney, business owner and “alleged” mobster, money launderer and murderer Antonio Spinelli, Spin aka Capo wasn’t looking to complicate his life, but Theresa intrigued him.

With little in common and much to lose they couldn’t seem to stay away. Story went on to follow Antonio and Theresa as they fought their attraction and managed to get themselves linked and entwined with the darker side of Hollywood’s organized crime, corruption and politics and making enemies all around…

RUIN (book 2) opens up to the aftermath of decisions made in book 1. The intensity of their attraction and sexual chemistry is fierce. But they are worlds apart with everything stacked against them. It’s like two parallel universes; them in a cocoon of hot, steamy intense and angry sex and then the outside world filled with secrets, betrayal, jealousy, treachery, ambition, corruption and danger.

Much of story focuses on events and developments that only underscore how hopeless their future is. But neither Antonio nor Theresa have gotten to their respective places in life by being easily deterred. Along the way they come to an understanding of what needs to be done.
