Review: Coda ( Songs of Submission #9 ) by C. D. Reiss

Coda by C. D. Reiss

Did you want a pat little ending about Jonathan and I riding off into the sunset? Did you want flowers and stars? Man, I wish it was all soft filters and violins. I wish we could fight about who cleaned the bathroom or who was cooking dinner. But I knew I was never destined for simple contentment.

I almost committed murder for him. I almost tore us apart to save him. How do you get back on the horse after that? Because, I promise you, nothing is the same. Nothing.

I’ve earned our happily ever after. Now I have to survive it.




I had been a year since I read the last book of Song of Submission. It amazed me that despite forgetting most of the plot details and what went down between these characters, C. D. Reiss manage to bring back all my dormant feelings for this couple. She remind me yet again why I love Jonathan and Monica.

Song of Submission is my first foray into the BDSM genre. Jonathan is the first dominant that introduced me to pleasure and pain. Even with me forgetting what he work for a living and how did he and Monica met and what lead to his fatal health condition, I thoroughly enjoyed Coda from the start to finish.

Coda detailed on the aftermath of Jonathan's heart transplant and how they cope with his new healthcare regime. Monica was a nervous wreck about everything concerning his health and battling with her sense loss for her King. 

Jonathan just seems so different now. Coming back from the brink of death can make a man second guessing everything. He and his Goddess relationship might slip through his grasp if he do not make any drastic changes soon.

I feel their love and devotion towards each other and it comes without surprise that the best thing for this series is their brand of kinky sex. It was a great conclusion to their epic story and if C. D. Reiss ever think of revisiting these characters few years down the road, I'm definitely game. 

"We both need to live as if we could die tomorrow, and we have to plan for a future where you're a hundred and ten."

Rating 5/5
