That’s all Adam Steinbeck demands of his wife.
Thirty days in a remote cottage, doing everything he demands. After that, he’ll sign her divorce papers and give her complete ownership of their company.

That’s how long he has to rediscover the man he once was. The Dominant Master he hid when he fell in love with her five years ago.

She wants the business they built badly enough to go to the cottage for a month. Cut off ties to the world and do his bidding. She can submit to him with her body, but her heart will never yield.

She thinks this is his pathetic attempt to repair their marriage.

She’s wrong.

Sasha’s Review

I’m just gonna go ahead and give this book a 100 stars because truly, it deserves it.

100 STARS!

Trust me, I have no idea what I’m going to say, other than BUY THIS BOOK NOW, i’ve got nothing, my mind is still processing what I just read. This book is one of the most important books I have read this year. CD Reiss crawls up in your mind to wake up your darkest desires. I love this about her. NO ONE, and I mean no one writes erotica like her. Her books are full a dominance we submit to. I completely submitted myself to Adam. I haven’t done this since Jonathan Drazen from Songs of Submission but Adam…. he broke me in the most delicious way. I’m sorry Jonathan but I’m Adam’s now.

Back to Marriage Games, first of prepare yourself for a motherfuckingly painful cliffhanger. You won’t see it coming, oh no. You’ll be too engrossed in this book. I didn’t wanted to come up for air, i read in two days I just couldn’t stay away. Man, how much I love a Dominant man in love. Adam is at war with himself, at war with a marriage that seems too broken. And at war with a wife he endlessly loves. This books is so important because we meet a side of dominance some us ignore or don’t know. This is not a walk in the park. Through Adam CD Reiss explains the struggles of a Dominant man. Adam gave up everything for Diana but she didn’t understand it.

Diana. Diana is one us. No matter how okay I am with some dominance and submission there are things I wouldn’t voice, there are things that surprise me and are big fat no. Yet I secretly like it. Diana found a way to suppress her darkest desires and it almost cost her her marriage. Everything seemed like chaos, a battle of blame but at the end she found out who she really was. The importance of it is that through her character we can see how difficult it is to ask for something we think is wrong but still want it. *sigh* I don’t want give much of it away but I want you guys to know this book is what you need this year.

Marriage Games is hypnotizing and seductive. Unforgettable and merciless. It will rip through your emotions, it will be right and wrong and addictive. This is the kind of book that the only way to know how good it is, is to experience it. CD Reiss books are more than just moments of overnight reading, they are experiences that touch every part of you.

This review could go on and on but I tried my hardest to keep it short and the point without giving much away. Honestly guys just grab it, even if your not into erotica, after reading this book you will be left with so much to consider and appreciate.

Marriage Games is undeniably one of my favorite reads this year. I can’t recommend this book highly enough.


Jenn’s Review: 4 stars


A man wakes up one morning and starts his day as any other before that. Everything is like it’s supposed to be…everything but one important thing. His wife is nowhere to be found and the only clue is sitting on the kitchen counter. A note to Adam Steinback from his wife Diana… A note that changed the rules of the game forever.

Nothing will ever be like it once was. Past will resurface…present will be controlled by the future. Adam has something that is dear to Diana and she wants it back badly. Adam is willing to give it all to her and more…as long as she gives him something in return. 30 days alone…just the two of them.

It’s about time that Diana finds out who she really married. Who was hiding deep down inside of her husband’s perfect demeanor.

This book….this story…all those teasers sure caught my attention and captivated my mind from the start. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this beauty and once it hit my kindle I was like a kid on Christmas morning opening the best gift ever.

Let’s start with Adam…That man is more mesmerizing and fascinating then most others. He completely won me over from the first line I read and kept making me love him more and more. The way he loves and respects Diana is admirable and he pushed back his own desires and needs for her happiness. Nothing was more pure and bright in his life then her….until she turned her back on him.

I was pretty unhappy with Diana and her behavior towards the last parts in the book. She came across as ungrateful and greedy woman who couldn’t care less for the one man she spent years with and how her actions hurt his beautiful heart.

Those 30 promised days were interesting and intriguing to read about and I loved how their relationship changed and grew in a completely different direction than expected. The whole story is such a fire cracker and it left me craving for more of it.

But it also left me a little bit confused. I literally had to re read the last chapter a few times to get a hang of what the heck happened there?!? I need answers and I need them NOW 🙂

And now we come to that part where I feel like the biggest loser ever. The writing threw me off quite a bit and I honest to God felt stupid. This was not like anything else I had the opportunity to read and it confused me as well as it challenged me and pushed me past my limits. That is the only reason this wonderful story didn’t get 5 stars. I am looking forward to listen to audiobook version and see if that also consumes me as much as reading it.
