"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

"Engaging, sexy, and noteworthy, Shuttergirl is just another example of why CD Reiss is one of my go to authors. Her clean writing style, flawed but relatable characters, and well-crafted story make this book one that's hard to put down even after you read the last page." ―Kristy Bromberg, bestselling author of the Driven Trilogy
"I went into Shuttergirl not knowing what magic CD Reiss had created. Instantly, I was swept away with perfect prose, incredible imagery, and a character connection I loved. In my mind, it was a perfect modern day fairy-tale where the loved and hated try to bridge the chasm of society's unwritten laws and listen to what they want, rather than what Hollywood tells them. It's the shit. Buy it." ―Pepper Winters, bestelling author of the Monsters in the Dark series
"Rich with tenderness, romance and wit―I loved everything about it." ―Mia Sheridan, NY Times bestselling author of Archer's Voice
"Forbidden yet sweet. Shuttergirl will make you believe that love has the power to break down all barriers. CD Reiss shows us her sweet side, but still manages to keep things sexy as hell." ―Claire Conteras, author of There Is No Light In Darkness
"Tender romance, smart writing. A total winner. Smart and romantic with characters you will root for until the end. I'm already looking forward to reading this book again. A story rich with tenderness and romance, written with the intelligence and wit that is all CD Reiss. I loved everything about Shuttergirl!" ―Mia Sheridan, bestselling author of the Sign of Love series
"A confident, badass heroine and a swoon worthy, good guy find each other in CD Reiss's latest contemporary romance. It's a Hollywood affair with more colors of reality than fairytale, depicting an honest and endearing paparazzi meets movie star relationship that captures all the swoon and flutters of the best love stories. With strikingly beautiful prose and the contrasting gritty, vivid Los Angeles setting, Shuttergirl is Reiss's finest work yet." ―Laurelin Paige, author of the bestselling Fixed Trilogy
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 gave her a big enough ego to try her hand at novels. She’ll tell you all about it out back, where a cord of wood awaits.
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Of course, past mistakes come back to haunt them, two different worlds collide,...yada yada yada...
But I hung in there, even when he turns out to be a coward and a wuss--very annoying qualities in a male, romantic lead.
But then, he does something at the end to get them back together (that, btw, no one would ever do, EVER) and the story is over in, like, two sentences.
No epilogue, no great ending-tie-it-up-in-a-bow, nothing.
Like the author had someone holding a gun to her head, saying, "FINISH IT NOW!" and she immediately stopped wherever she was and typed, The End.
No cliffhanger but still annoyed.
Then the author has the nerve to write in the end credits that she MIGHT post an epilogue later on her web page if she feels like it and we're all good little children.
Well, save it.
Pissed off and done with you.
This book made me want to run out and buy a $7k camera and live a story such as this.
It was breath taking and heart stopping. The drama was incredible and the characters were inspiring. I can't tell you how much I loved Laine. Her character was strong and powerful. She's one of my favorite female characters in all the hundreds of books I've read. All the characters were wonderful, Mike parents, his friends, Laine's friends, every character had a purpose and brought something to the book.
I loved the different POV and how often it went back and forth. Everything about this book was perfect and I can't think of anything I would change.
Along with my praise to the author, I'd love to give my praise to the narrators in the audiobook. Christian Fox and Jo Raylan did an outstanding job. I love the sound of Jo's voice. It's smooth and raspy at times. She reads so fluently and put just the right amount of emotion in it. It honestly made the book better, if that's at all possible. I will be looking for other books read by her.
I feel like there's so much more to say, but I'll end with: this book is a MUST READ. I know it'll be a book I will re-read over and over again. No time to proof read my review, I'm to excited to start Hardball by CD Reiss.
There is plenty of angst in this story and some of the things that happen to Laine are hard to read and will make your heart hurt. She is strong as steel and fragile as gossamer wings, street smart and naive, she is light and dark, but most of all she is a survivor. Michael is trapped by his success and feeling like a shell of a person until Laine comes back full force and turns his world upside down.
The supporting cast is solid and they add dimension to the story, especially the city of Los Angeles. I feel like I know LA now, like I could walk down Rodeo drive and feel like I've been there before. Maybe even have lunch with Michael or have my picture taken by Laine.
Christine never fails to amaze me with her talent, she weaves an intricate tale so rich with yummy prose you want to eat it with a spoon!
If you've never been to LA, this book will transport you there, put you in the heart of the city then lead you around the outskirts, take you over fences and down dirty back alleys. It gives a gritty feel of the glamour of Hollywood. It's a book that leads you on a journey that is just as important as the destination.
This story has makings of a glittery fairytale- the movie star and the paparazzi- but with some of the dirt of the tabloids. Centered around Micheal and Laine; their history, their secrets, their feelings, and the expectations, opinions, and interference those around them. Their relationship is supposed to be taboo. A movie star is not to mingle with the paparazzi. Paparazzi are not supposed to fall for their subject. When there's more than a camera and flash between them, labels and expectations cease to matter.
