***You do NOT need to read Songs of Submission to read Spin***

Mafia capo, Antonio Spinelli blew through my orderly life like a cyclone.

Gorgeous and passionate, with a breathtaking brutality, he put me under his spell the moment he touched me, drawing me into his underworld of risk, violence and betrayal.

And I found, just as this sophisticated savage didn’t trust me, I didn’t trust myself. Something happened to me. Some alchemy from the heat between us.

I discovered I was a savage, too.

 ***Contains Graphic Sex, Strong Language and Adult Situations. Not for young readers***paragraph divider 18***Julie, #NerdGirlJulie’s Review***

Anyone who follows my reviews knows that I don’t giveaway stars easily, and when I say a book is a must read, I REALLY mean it. Well, Spin by C.D. Reiss is a must read!

When I read the teaser for Spin by C.D. Reiss, I thought it was going to be her best work yet, and I was right. Reiss can write sexy love scenes that pop like water in a hot skillet, and she doesn’t forget that there needs to be a plot and a lucid, compelling story beyond and between those love scenes. Her writing is erudite and her attention to detail is amazing. Her description of various sensations–smell and touch not just sight–add so much to the reader’s experience. I could smell Antonio’s cologne. I could hear Pam’s rhythmic tapping on her stapler. I could feel the velvety petals of the roses.

This book shone a spotlight on the author’s ability to incorporate humor and smoldering anticipation into the same scene. I loved how Reiss tied in tidbits and story lines from her previous books. This book isn’t just a spin-off of her prior series, Songs of Submission; this story starts a new series with a timeline that is parallel to the last series but focuses on the sister(s) of Jonathan Drazen (much loved male lead of Songs of Submission). Reiss weaves these story lines together like a crofter on the Isle of Harris weaving tweed. We get a little insight to Margie, but the focus is Theresa Drazen, heiress, socialite and accountant to WDE talent agency and ex-girlfriend of mayoral candidate, Daniel Browser.

Antonio Spinelli lights Theresa’s passion, and she finds there is life beyond debits and credits. Antonio finds his reason to live, to love, to commit and to fight. While there are descriptive sex scenes, they’re not graphically written merely for shock-value. They are a slow, sweaty, humid afternoon without A.C.; they are fireworks bursting on a warm July night.
