Title: Kick (Songs of Perdition, #1)
Author: CD Reiss
Release Date: May 5 2014 (as part of the Bend Anthology)
The first novella in Songs of Perdition.
Fiona Drazen, sex addict, submissive slave, celebutante, trapped in a mental ward until Dr. Elliot Chapman can help her remember why she's there. But once she does, she might not want to go home to the Master she tried to kill.
Kick is the first part of the Songs of Perdition series from CD Reis. Songs of Perdition is a spin off series from her highly acclaimed Songs of Submission series which starred Jonathan Drazen. Songs of Perdition stars Jonathan’s sister, Fiona and Songs of Corruption stars another of his sisters, Theresa. It is not necessary to have read the other series to enjoy Kick and the story will not end in Kick but will continue in subsequent books. Kick is a novella, approximately similar in length to Submit.
Happiness has to be a devilishly kinky new series from CD Reiss – there’s really no one quite like her as she seamlessly intertwines the lives of the seriously fucked up wealthy Drazens into their own series of ‘Songs’. Each story is refreshingly different from the last with CD Reiss proving that she is indeed a Master Storyteller.
This time it’s the turn of Fiona Drazen – drug addict, sex addict and now amnesiac as she wakes up in a psych ward not remembering the events that led her to be incarcerated there. She’s informed that she has attempted to kill her Master, Deacon Bruce but she has only sketchy hazy memories of that day and no clue as to why she did it and what led up to this.
Her story begins to be slowly revealed to us in a series of hazy flashbacks through hypnotism with her doctors and counsellors and we gradually begin to piece it all together. Fiona is a turbo-driven sex addict powered by a strong drug addiction to the point of being totally out of control – driven by her arousal and need for release. Seems any port in a storm will do and Fiona is promiscuous and fairly indiscriminate in her sexual partners until she meets Deacon and pursues him out of a night club. He goes on to rule her passion, to drive her to extremes of sexual pleasure and pain and to totally hold her under his dominion. And that is where the details get a little sketchy, no doubt to be filled in, in delicious detail, in subsequent novellas in this series.
I am so captivated and more than a little addicted to CD Reiss’s dry and witty narrative. I’ve been reviewing her since the very first book in the Songs of Submission series was released and I’ve read everything she’s published since. I love her style – it pulls no punches, it’s straight to the point and incredibly sharp in it’s delivery. CD Reiss is an east coast girl living on the west coast and often her writing just proves that you can take the girl out of New York but you can’t take New York out of the girl!!
The last thing I remembered was hanging from the ceiling, listening to rain on the windows. It never rained in Los Angeles, unless it did, and then it rained like a holy hail of fuck yous.
I confess to a small crush on the way she writes!
Kick does everything the first part of a new series should do – it opens with a bang, steeped in intrigue and mystery and is just enough to truly suck you in and captivate you and leave you desperate for the next instalment. It’s darkly delicious, wickedly devious, funny and also tinged with sadness. It’s a near perfect series opener, exciting and arousing, and I can’t wait for more of Fiona’s fucked up story.
Kick will be released tomorrow (May5th) as part of the much anticipated Bend Anthology – eight never before read novellas from eight well renowned erotic authors and only 99 cents!!
About CD Reiss
CD Reiss lives smack in the middle of Los Angeles with her children and husband. She likes to make pretty pictures and write dirty scenes. She eats dark chocolate and chili, together, sometimes with bacon, and doesn't care what you think about that.
There are a million more things she could tell you about herself besides that, but they're all too boring to mention in company.
