My name is Monica. I’m a singer born and raised in Los Angeles.

I’ve stopped dating. When I cut a record, or win a Grammy, maybe then I’ll be with someone, but every man in my past has done everything he could to make me submit myself to him, and it’s gotten in the way of my career. I won’t do it again.

But there’s Jonathan. He owns the high-rise hotel where I work, and he is gorgeous and charming. I refuse to fall in love with him, even though when he asks me to submit to him, I want nothing more.


Liezel’s Thoughts:

Beg is about a struggling singer looking for a big break in the music scene. To make ends meet Monica works as a waitress at a high-end bar. After breaking up with a controlling boyfriend that practically forbid her to sing she decided relationships aren’t worth her time.

Music becomes her life. Between babysitting a friend, her waitressing  job, performing at gigs and composing she has no room for anything else. She vows never to be distracted again. All was going according to plan until she embarrasses herself in front of her boss’s boss – Jonathan.

Crazy how that one incident puts Monica on Jonathan’s radar. He wants her – she resists. But the attraction is too strong to ignore…


From the very beginning I loved  Monica ,  she is very expressive and outspoken.  While one would cower under the heavy gaze of one powerful man she treated him like he was an equal, she never held back. I also loved how motivated and driven she was when it came to her music. She could have easily used Jonathan’s  influence to sky-rocket herself into stardom but she is determined to make it on her own.

I enjoyed reading about Jonathan too.  As Monica put it – he isn’t the asshole that we thought he would be. For a man in his economic standing I thought he was pretty down to earth which I thought was great. And oh my is this man yummy. So domineering and seductive, I don’t know how Monica was able to hold off that long on a man with that much charisma. These two together… was nuclear. Hot! Hot! Hot!

For a novella, this story sure did make an impact. I don’t get how the author was able to pull this off – to deliver a pretty descriptive story in just 102 pages.  Very impressive indeed. Will I be reading more into this sexy series? Absolutely!

The Verdict:



Alternate Point of View:


She stared up at me with my dick at her cheek, smiling. I propped my hand under my head to watch her. She licked me then slid the entire length down her throat. It felt endless. She took my breath away.

“Where did you learn to do that?” I asked.

“Los Angeles High School of Performing Arts,” she said. “They taught me how to open my throat to sing. Then Kevin Wainwright taught me how to put his dick down it.”

She was perfectly within her rights to mention another man in passing. We were in the middle of exactly nothing. Our encounter would be forgotten in a week. Yet, I didn’t care for it. Not at all.

“I’d like to thank LA Unified and Kevin Whatever for this moment.” I said.

A little laugh escaped her lips. “I like you, Jonathan.”

Lots of women had told me lots of things over the years, but rarely had they made something so simple sound so sincere.

“Feeling’s mutual Monica.” I did like her. She was fun and smart, two traits that rarely kept company with beauty.

I had her again. I licked her. I fucked her slowly, then quickly, then slowly again. She was easy to read, with her shuddering cunt and articulate speech melting into throaty gasps. I pulled her away, until she begged me for release. I complied, watching her lose herself in pleasure.


I woke to the sound of the water pipes humming. Even new plumbing didn’t keep a whoosh from being heard in the bedroom whenever a faucet was turned. I didn’t mind knowing what was going on in another corner of the house.

I found her at the sink, back to me, hair slung over one shoulder so I could see her neck and the little red mark where I’d bitten her. I’d wanted to make more, to stamp my feet in new snow, and feel her buckle under my teeth.

I wouldn’t normally play with pain the first time, but I had to hurt this one. I had to break the velvet texture of her pleasure, like running across the smooth sand of the beach just to put your footprints on it, or getting the first knife mark into the jar of peanut butter, breaking the flawless swirl with a slash.

And when I’d bitten her, she groaned and pushed herself toward me, a beautiful, smart, funny, masochist.

“How about another go?” I asked, my lips exploring the curve of her neck. I slid the dress off her shoulders, feeling her skin under it.

“Your phone rang,” she said.

“It’s always ringing.”

She threw her head back and her chest out, a kitten under my touch. I’d have her on the counter, maybe. Or I’d throw her on the floor. Condoms were upstairs. Fuck. I’d have to drag her up there by the hair, or carry her like a gentleman. Whichever made her squirm more.

The phone buzzed.


“I think I need to take this,” I said, zipping her back up while she went upstairs for her shoes. I popped the phone from the charger and went outside.

“Jon.” Her voice, so collected and in control.

“Is this about the Eclipse show?”

“I need to know if you’re coming.”

I sat on the patio couch, rubbing my eyes. I was tired again. Drained. “You have a career now. You don’t need me at every event.”

“You’re a major collector. If you don’t go, it’ll look like you only supported me because we were married.”

“No, it’ll look like I had other plans.”

“I need you to go.”

“I don’t need to look at you with Erik.” I was getting pissed thinking about it. “Do you enjoy that it upsets me? Does it get you off?”

“You know it doesn’t.”

“I’m not going. The end. Get your kicks elsewhere.”

I hung up.

That was a first. I’d never told her to fuck off before. I’d have to do it again some time. I leaned back in my chair staring out at the pool, the surface still in the late summer heat.

My phone buzzed, and I looked over at the text.


I’ll tell Erik to stay home


I realized I didn’t want her to acquiesce. Erik pissed me off, but her friends whispering that I liked to fuck like a violent offender were worse.

Which reminded me of the night before.

The singer. One more go.


I went inside.

“Monica?” I cursed the size of the house. I heard the rumble of a car starting out front. By the time I got out to the porch, she’d pulled into the street.

We’d have another go when I got back. I was sure of it.

About CD Reiss

CD Reiss is a USA Today and Amazon 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.

Critics have dubbed the books “poetic,” “literary,” and “hauntingly atmospheric,” which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think she’s some sort of braggart who’s too good to chop a cord of wood.

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