Prince Charming, an all-new sexy standalone from New York Times bestselling author CD Reiss, is LIVE! This is my first 5 Star Review of 2018, and my friends, it is one ‘hella~hella hot’ hacker read!
Release Date: January 4th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Keaton Bridge is exactly the kind of guy a straight-arrow like Cassie doesn’t need.
For one thing, he’s a criminal—and she fights crime for a living. And being criminally handsome isn’t helping her say no, either. Everything about him screams trouble, from his British accent to his mysterious past.
And Cassie doesn’t do trouble.
Keaton’s got his own trouble. He’s trying to go legit, and an FBI agent hanging around is the last thing that will help his credibility. All it took was one night of passion to sear her into his skin. Now he can’t imagine living happily ever after without her.
All they have to do is walk away.
But neither of them ever walks away from danger.
Prince Charming was simply put, a fantastic read! That being said, this romance was far from being simple at all. The complex hacker storyline was gripping, full of heart pounding angst and passion, and I was completely captivated from the get-go!
The characters completely won me over and won my heart in this story!
There was so much mystery behind Keaton Bridge. Was he really a criminal? Was he the evil Alpha Wolf of the dark web? It’s not always the brawn that is appealing to me, but the sheer alpha power of the mind and the psychology behind it is incredibly intriguing to me as well. Yes, okay, I’m a geek, but the fact that Keaton was a hacker absolutely fascinated me. On top of his brilliance, he was also British (I’m a sucker for an accent), and he really was quite charming… just not in the traditional ‘royal’ way of course. However, the best thing about Keaton was that underneath it all was a man of conscience and heart.
‘I can smell her. Vanilla and gunpowder. My God. She’s made of candy-coated bullets.’
Cassie Grinstead, on the other hand, walked the straight and narrow for the FBI. She was determined, by the book, and all business, but at the same time had quite the ‘past’ hidden herself. Cassie was a ‘thinker,’ sharp as tack really, but I was delighted at how down to earth she could be as well. I totally adored her fun and loving relationship with her Nana – she was quite the firecracker! Although she would never admit it, Cassie needed someone like Keaton, who wasn’t afraid of barriers, to help her release hers.
‘He kisses me, but it’s not the kiss of a man who will never see me again. It’s the kiss of a man promising more.’
The passion between Keaton and Cassie was sizzling, and seriously, CD Reiss puts the ‘S’ in sizzle with her passionate writing! Keaton and Cassie shared some intensely sexy passion for each other, but I loved how romantic their relationship actually was to follow throughout the story.
‘She is foggy weather, when the air gets so close you can feel it around you like a skin. She is the crowds flowing around Trafalgar Square with their own purpose and predictability that is comforting. She is the smell of the sea air unexpectedly coming from the south, bringing the sting of salt to the city. She is an unexpected reminder of where I stand in the world.’
It was angsty with their hidden secrets, and somehow it was also incredibly honest and raw. It’s like I completely knew what they meant to each other…or at least I hoped that I truly did.
‘No matter what happens, I didn’t desert you. Say you understand.’
CD Reiss did a superb job with this romance! There is just something about her writing that gets me every time. I enjoy her dry and witty humor and the emotions she conveys through her characters, which really brings them to life. The structure, build, and details of the plot were very well thought out and written in such a way to keep me intrigued and full of anticipation throughout.
I just love it when a story gets to me like this, so much that I would even want to go back and read it again. That doesn’t happen to me very often with a mystery, and quite honestly, I think this would be a great book to see made into a Passionflix movie as well!
For some crazy reason that I cannot explain, I have to mention that I have not read the first book of this series, King of Code, although it was released months ago. I was worried that reading them out of order would cause some gaps for me in Prince Charming, but this a perfect standalone read. Needless to say, I am definitely getting King of Code next for Taylor and Harper’s story. Also, Chris and Catherine’s story will be coming June of 2018 in White Knight!
This is my first 5 Star Review of 2018, and my friends, Prince Charming is one ‘hella~hella hot’ hacker read!

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. 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.
She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
