New Release & ARC Review: Crowne Rules by C.D. Reiss

“Dante is a Dominant male hero who steals your breath in all the right ways.” —Joey W. Hill 

Crowne Rules, an all-new deliciously  decadent forced proximity standalone from New York Times bestselling author C.D. Reiss is available now!

What happens when fire and ice are forced into close proximity?

With the paparazzi hot on her heels, Mandy Bettencourt is desperate for somewhere to hide, and her best friend has just the place.

It’s perfect. No Internet. No phone. A deep bathtub she’s soaking in when HE shows up.

Her best friend’s brother, Dante Crowne. Rich as a cardinal sin and handsome enough to piss off the devil. A man with a reputation for unforgettable bedroom games. 

Mandy got an early taste of them in high school--for seven minutes in a closet. She can tell you, the rumors are all true.

Dante knows he’s got a reputation for a lot of things, including a love of solitude.

But there’s a beautiful socialite in his bathtub, and the memory of those seven minutes isn’t inspiring him to kick her out.

So he offers her a deal.

If she wants to stay, she has to work.

If she makes a mistake, she’s corrected with pink hand marks on her backside.


That’s the deal. 

Beg for it or leave it.


He’s surprised when she gets on her knees, and he’s even more surprised when she likes the punishment.

The most shocking thing, though, is how much he’s starting to like her.


They can’t stay in paradise forever. 

Los Angeles awaits.

But an old nemesis sets his sights on tearing them apart, and Dante may be the one left begging.

**Crowne Rules is a complete STANDALONE. You don’t have to read any of the Crowne Brothers books to pick this up, but you might want to once you’re done with Dante.**

About CD Reiss

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 did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Loved crowne rules! The story always kept me guessing as there were secrets along the way to be dished out. Dante’s feelings all throughout the story were a whirlwind it was almost as though I could picture it. I have to give C.D. Reiss mad credit for storyline originality as I’ve never read a storyline plot like this one. Both characters came alive on the page however for myself I felt Dante’s character came alive for me more. Maybe it was the history of how his story began and why he had her stay there but for myself this was why Mandy played as a secondary character even though she told the story most of the time. Really we were all about guessing Dante’s emotions and what his story was. Dante was a conundrum I wanted to figure out. I had all of Mandy figured out but Dante was still a mystery. We were given Mandys full back story from the start but Dante’s I felt like new characters and new developments were made so much so he was the star not Mandy. Though I did get a shocker there at the end with Mandy’s story (I won’t spoil it but wow!) 

I give this five stars for originality and entertainment I was sucked in and once I started I couldn’t stop! A must read for C.D. Reiss fans!
