The (hot, dirty, and consuming) games people play By Vox Libris Consider yourselves warned, faithful readers: CD Reiss is going to claw your heart out, pound it with a meat cleaver, only to shove it back in, wrench it back out, stomp on it with sharp spiked shoes, and then jab only half of it back in your chest, leaving the other half dangling perilously out.Such is Marriage Games, one of the best books I've read this year.Adam and Diana have been married four years - four happy years, Adam thought. A note on the kitchen counter one morning defies that notion, however, because Diana has left him. She is unhappy, she no longer loves him, and she wants this marriage to end.Adam's initial shock gives way to an agonizing pain that demands action: "I needed to become a man unburdened by love. I didn't have a plan yet. I didn't have a beginning, middle, and end. Just a concept without form. I didn't articulate it to myself, but somewhere on the back burners, something started brewing. Something difficult, bold, and utterly callous."One thing you quickly learn about Adam is that he is a Dominant, yet his marital bed was absent any D/s relationship because Adam believes it is impossible for him to love a submissive. And one thing Adam knows without question is that he loves his wife.He also knows that he is not ready for his marriage to end.To forestall Diana's demand for a divorce, Adam proposes an exchange: 30 days together, during which Diana will do whatever Adam asks, after which he will give her not only the divorce but the 51 percent he owns in her and her father's company.Reiss has a running motif of cold and ice that reflects the state of this marriage. Adam has frozen part of himself off, leaving a cold void where his dominance once thrived. He refers to Diana as his "little huntress," but her mythological namesake pursues creatures whose hearts beat warm blood. What Adam can't see is that part of his heart, much like the snow drifts in Manhatten and the Hamptons, is too cold to hunt. When Adam observes that his "toe made a divot in the crust of ice but didn't break through," he might as well be talking about himself.Yes, Adam loves his wife. You will not question this. in fact, you will agonize with him over Diana's absence. Adam professes that she is "light, life, energy. Everything." And you believe him. You know this to be true. Reiss uses this to almost turn you against Diana, to dislike her with the same intensity with which Adam loves her.And then Reiss changes the "game," and you find yourself standing on that frozen crust of ice, feeling it crack underneath you.This book is so amazingly well written that I am struggling with how to describe it. I have not marked up a book as I marked Marriage Games in a long, long time. When Reiss is in Adam's head, she immerses you in his thoughts and feelings, grabbing you by the jugular and not releasing you. This book will exhaust your emotional reserves in a way that very few books do, but it's a good way, in a way that makes you feel as if you just experienced something phenomenal.Truly, the less you know about this book, the better you will be. Go into it ready to be challenged. Go into it ready to love Adam, yet also be prepared to understand him better, sometimes in ways that make you weep for him rather than on behalf of him. You also need to be prepared to rethink how you look at marriage, to see it as an organic, ever-changing entity in which two partners grow and adapt to each other's growth. You need to learn that a game can only be played by two willing participants, and not all games can be won.As this is the first in a duet, it ends on a bit of a cliffhanger. Or maybe "cliffhanger" is the wrong word to use. It ends on that icy crust, and you hear the ice beginning to break. Reiss leaves you wondering if you - and Adam and Diana - will make it safely across or if the ice will tear you asunder. 55 of 60 people found the following review helpful. Three irritated stars By AutoBots Why do I always fall victim to raving 5 star reviews?This book has been advertised in my face, (even now as I write this, an ad is in the corner for it) for days. So, I read reviews before purchasing it, here's a few choice words that I kept seeing:"Kinky""Heartstopping""Sexy""Page Turner""Best dom ever"

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.
