Book Review: Resist (Songs of Submission #6) by C.D. Reiss

Hooray for the longest book in the series! Unlike the first 5 installments of Songs of Submission, Resist is not a novella but closer to a full length novel. And yes, it still wasn't long enough for me! But honestly, it could be a 2,000 page epic novel and probably still not be enough for me. I just love Jonathan and Monica that much. And C.D. Reiss writes them so darn perfectly. I can actually feel their electricity and feel their love.

"Jonathan," I whispered, his name a white flag of surrender.
"Did you just shudder, or is it cold in this parking lot?"
"Was there anyone before you?"
"You might have thought so at the time."
"I feel like no one's ever loved me before."
"I'm sure they did their best, but you always belonged to me."

Resist picks up 2 days after the events in Burn, which ended in a huge cliffhanger. We were left wondering what the heck was going on and what would happen to Jonathan. As usual, his ex-wife Jessica is screwing things up for them. While Jonathan has figured out what Jessica's angle is, Monica isn't satisfied. Well, the oh so secretive Mr. Drazen isn't telling Monica much. She wants answers. Answers about Jessica. Answers about Rachel. And since she's not getting any from him, she'll go to the source. But what good can come from talking to the enemy? Will Jessica just fill Monica's head with lies?
Jonathan is beyond frustrating in this book and I really wanted to slap him around a bit and shake him while yelling "what the hell are you doing?!" Yet despite that, I still love that man. Yes he is secretive and controlling but he is also over the top sexy and I love him. And the sex? Dear lord the sex. So. Frickin. Hot.

"God," he said, "I have to have you."
"Take me. Own me. Use me. Pick a verb. Just please."
"Fuck you. I'm going to fuck you. That's my verb."

Finally Jonathan starts to open up a little bit more about his past and it looks like he might be able to moving forward from the tragedy surrounding Rachel. Then BAM! totally out of nowhere we are hit in the head with the mother of all cliffhangers. I mean, you know it will be a doozy when on the first page of the book the author warns you about the upcoming cliffhanger, but I was not expecting THAT.

This was another fantastic book in the series and I loved every minute of it. Cry, the 7th book in the Songs of Submission series will be released on or before October 7, 2013. ( I know it's only 2 months away but it may as well be two years to me!

Marianna's Rating:

**I received an eBook copy in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Title: Resist
Author: C.D. Reiss
Series: Songs of Submission #6
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Erotica, BDSM
Social Media: @cdreisswriter;
Book Description: The story of Jonathan Drazen and Monica Faulkner continues. And it's time Monica stepped up to the plate.

I looked down at him, with his tourmaline eyes and copper hair and believed him despite my better judgment. Then I forgave him despite my misgivings. I loved him just because I did. My heart wasn’t sensible or guarded enough. Not by a sight.

I was a walking raw nerve ending of emotion, as if the years I’d spent away from men and sex had made me more emotional, more vulnerable, more foolish than before. I ran my fingers through his hair, feeling like the victim of a crime of consent.
