Review by Wendy ♥ White Knight by C.D. Reiss

A Review by Wendy

4 Meant to Be Stars

Spoiler Free

There are only so many stories to be told...Oh, each can be told differently, creatively and with each author's unique way of telling it. C.D. Reiss is an author who has all of the above with additional doses of ways to reach into your head and heart with just a few words that can carry the weight of everything two people are experiencing for the first time... the pull to one another.
Wide-eyed, he said, "Did you feel it?"
"I did. I did feel it."
"What was it?"
"I don't know."
"Have you felt it before?"
"No. But I still kind's still there."

With that simple exchange, as a reader who is able to think back to first love... or even first lust, those words can cause all sorts of thoughts rushing to the mind...The words so basic, so forthright and even innocent in the moment...A perfect example of this author putting her twist on the tale of young, forbidden love...lost and then hopefully renewed.

If you've read King of Code then you may remember Catherine and Chris. In White Knight, their novella is one of lost love and how they come back together...but things are not easy as both are not the teenagers they were...

Life happened and left its mark on the both of them. Both needed to decide who they are to each other now...This was a moving story...handled with insight to understand a woman needs to know who she is without a man beside her...She needs to be comfortable in her own skin... so that she can then be able to stand side by side with the man she loves.

It does end quickly, however, Reiss has gifted you beginning chapters of King of Code and Prince Charming to entice you for more.

 A gifted copy was provided by author/publisher for an honest review.
 About C.D. Reiss
6896405 CD Reiss is a New York Times bestselling author. 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 a single cord of wood.
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
