Review: Burn ( Songs of Submission #5 ) by C. D. Reiss

Burn by C. D. Reiss

Here's how it's going to be, Goddess.

Until you surrender yourself to me fully, I will not touch you.

Until the world can know you belong to me, I will not kiss you.

I'm going to be inches away, at your side. I'm going to whisper in your ear and put my breath on your neck, but the heat of my skin will not feel the shudder of yours until you commit yourself to me completely and without reservation.




From the end of Control, Monica decided to call if off with Jonathan because she didn't want to be label as the Bondage Girl. She was having a hard times coming to terms with her sexual proclivities. Meanwhile, Jonathan was treating their time off rather calmly thinking she will come back sooner or later. He seemed pretty in control of himself, non of those begging nonsense that he experienced with Jessica.

"We can fix us, but we're not going to fix the world, Jonathan."
"The world is full of assholes." 

Monica was keeping herself occupied with her collaboration with Kevin and Darren, and they will have to be at Vancouver for the opening. Darren had a blow up with his boyfriend and Kevin was MIA. What was that all about? 

"You're mine, and I will defend you. But this isn't a movie. You don't destroy someone with a fight."

I'm curious with that Kevin's plotline, but it didn't came to any fruition. Throw us a bone already! 

On other note, I'm not quite happy with the way Jonathan handled Jessica when she showed up at his home. I'm sure it will come back and bite him in the ass. 

Most part of this novella was dealing with Monica, who didn't want to commit to Jonathan, but don't mind having some no-harm-done flings with him. She was practically obsessed with him and she missed his brand of sex. But dear Jonathan surprised me. He said NO! to her repeatedly, unless she fully commit herself to their relationship and no walking away again. This man had a will of steel. 

God spitefully created a world where we couldn't be together without being puppets of other people's imaginations.

There was a bomb dropped towards the end to keep me hooked for the next one. Will Jonathan able to extricate himself from the mess that fell upon him?

Rating 4/5
