Synopsis:

The stunning conclusion to the New York Times Bestseller.
There’s one, unbreakable rule in the game.
Stay collected. Compartmentalize. Think your next move through. Never let your heart dictate your tactics.
The heart is impulsive.
The heart makes bad decisions.
The heart doesn’t see the long game.
Because the heart may have decided to get Adam back, but when the endgame comes, the heart’s going to be the first thing to break.

Excerpt


He took my hand, putting it in his lap as if it was finally home. “What are we doing?” he asked.
“Screwing up.”
“Like it’s our job.”
“If you’re going to do something, I say, do it all the way.”
He squeezed my hand. I was jarred by the way he looked in the direction of the window, but not through it. He didn’t look like the commanding Dominant who had been my partner for the past few weeks. As handsome as ever, and graceful and sharp, a leader and a decider, but not the same.
He faced me. “I don’t know how to fix this.”
The streetlights glinted off the light in one eye and his jaw locked, catching things he’d never say. He looked like a man I knew and abandoned. Manhattan Adam.
“We can’t fix it,” I said, putting his hand in my lap, watching our clasped hands make a new form. I rubbed the outside of his thumb with mine, feeling it’s familiar shape, the strength of the knuckle and the texture of his skin on mine. “We have to build something new. And we can.” I looked up from our hands to his face.
Could I make him feel my optimism? Could I take a piece of it onto a fork and lift it to his lips? Would they part? Would he let me lay it on his tongue? Would he chew and swallow, saying “I do. I do believe we can, I do.”
He didn’t say that. He didn’t believe, but his lips needed to touch my belief and his tongue needed to taste my hope.
I don’t know if I kissed him or if he kissed me, but it felt like a first kiss, with full quivering that left me paralyzed at his nearness. The act of two tongues tasting each other was so intimate between strangers, so taken for granted over time, and so rarely is the wonder of it felt through to the bone.
He was licorice. Fennel and leather. And he moved like cool water, reacting to my movements, countering with his hands and his mouth, covering me with his attention. The kiss was the sway of sex, the smell of it, the carnal desire without the promise of anything but another dance.




AMIE'S 4 STAR REVIEW

So as much as these two give me whiplash I had to continue on and find out what the heck comes of them !! I was intrigued with the marriage games , I mean I am married and like most marriage is a ton of work and sometimes thankless !! So anytime I see a story that can either sympathize with my issues or put a spin on them I am all for digging in !! Obviously my life would never take these turns of events so it does not trigger anything for me emotionally. I feel for the characters , they piss me off , they make me laugh and I enjoyed seeing their realizations but none of it changed my marriage - it was pure enjoyment and duh that is what I read for. Yes it was strange and erotic and sometimes scary BUT some of the visuals were painted so perfectly it was like I was watching a great movie !! There is heartache , underlying and of course present. They suffer loss and they suffer from their choices. Adam realizes what he thought he wanted and needed wasn't so cut and dry. In his case he can basically have his cake and eat it too , with one woman , his wife , that he loves.  Diana was a bit tricky, she thought she fell out of love , she didn't really give Adam a chance before she turned their lives upside down. After she puts the wheels in motion she agrees to things not realizing what they would awaken in her. Now Adam is trying to push her away and she is trying to hold on to him. It is a rollercoaster and at times I was unsure if there would ever be a resolution but I was pleased with how things turned out and if anything to learn from it is that talking things out and not being afraid to express yourself in marriage is a major must.




About the Author

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.
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.
