Review: Control ( Songs of Submission #4 ) by C. D. Reiss

Control by C. D. Reiss

What you’re breaking isn’t some little, meaningless coupling. We aren’t some casual fuck, and we never were. Not from the first night. Not from the first time I laid eyes on you. You were built for me. I denied it as long as I could, but we were meant to be together. You are the sea under my sky. We’re bound at the horizon.




The kink was getting kinkier and Monica started to embrace her role as the submissive. Well, she relinquished control to Jonathan in the room, but in public she was still as strong and ambitious as ever.

With Jonathan, I felt safe. I felt a loss of control so complete, a surrender so honest that it became a luxurious indulgence.

This time around we finally got some Jonathan's POV, but let just say the mysteriousness behind his enigma was pretty much gone once I got into his head. I knew him more intimately know. I'm not too comfortable with his kinkier side, I'm not a fan of BDSM, but he did had a soft side that was endearing to me. He can be tender, caring and protective when he was not tying her down and pounding her senseless. 

"Goddess, this has been done so many times before, it's almost boring." He held up a can of whipped cream. "You and I are too good for it. But it's two weeks from its expiration date, and we need to talk about the contents of your refrigerator."

"Let's take care of business and let unpleasantness take care of itself."

I always thought BDSM people live in their own fantasy world, but Jonathan and Monica was dealing with the real world, facing judgmental people everywhere. Can't people just mind their own business? When someone think badly of him, I just wanted to screaaammm.

I wanted to be normal, except when I wasn't. Yet again, I'd be branded.

There was a hint of suspense when Jonathan and Monica found out they had been watch. Jonathan sure it was Kevin, while Monica swore it must be Jessica. Who was right? 

When things got tough, Monica wasn't sure she was ready to give up her career and pride for the sake of being with Jonathan. I know some stories just thrived from misunderstanding, but I always admired people who have more faith in each other. The ending here was not a happy one, but I like where they stood and they understand each other.

What we made together was greater than what I would have created myself.

Rating 4/5
