Laine had come and folded the paper, creasing my expectations in high school with her life story. Now, with her breath on my shoulder, she folded my life into an airplane and shot it out the window. The vivid imagery makes it so real that I felt I was actually living in it. He was stunning, and irresistible, and a one-way ticket to nowheresville. View all 20 comments. ARC provided by author -I knew this city like a lover, and she'd whisper her secrets to me.
Laine Cartwright aka Shuttergirl is a 25 yr. There was a time in her life that he made her feel special. They were friends, 4. They were friends, and had a connection that she hasn't felt since with anyone else. Laine is now known as one of the top Paparazzi's of Hollywood. She is aggressive, and always gets the money shot. She has been taking pictures since she was 17, and aside from her foster brother Tom, her camera is all she has.
She takes pride in being he best in her business. One of the celebrities that always brings in the big bucks for Laine is her old high school crush Michael Greydon. Born to two movie star parents, he is considered Hollywood royalty. Now as a huge movie star himself, he is loved by the public, and the prince of Hollywood. Laine assumes even though she shoots him all the time, that he probably doesn't even recognize the girl from the bleachers all those years ago.
Their careers put them on opposite sides. Michael knows he's supposed to run from her, not want to get close to her, but he finds she gets under his skin, and makes him want more from her. As Michael pursues Laine, she is torn. They come from such different worlds, and she feels like she doesn't fit into his life, yet when they are together there is no place she'd rather be. Michael likes how real Laine is. What you see is what you get. They still share that intense connection, and can't seem to stay away from each other. Laine knows being with Michael would be career suicide, but she wants him so much, she just can't resist him.
He was the boy in the bleachers, the one who worked too hard and cared too much, and I became the girl who could be anything she wanted, the one who was accepted and whose life was about to turn around. I really enjoyed this story about a second chance romance. I loved how different it is from C. It just shows what a talented, versatile writer she is. Whether it's the kinky Jonathan, the bad ass Capo, or the gorgeous movie star Michael, her stories pull you in and captivate you. I wanted to be the one to protect her.
View all 40 comments. Apr 18, S. I must have highlighted more than two thirds of this book with its poetic and illustrative words that just brought this story to three dimensional life!! Her words evoke emotions in me and awaken my senses. I felt like I was the voyeur, the "pap" capturing every detail of this original, gritty and poignant tale.
Laine and Michael, could not be any more different than the dichotomy of a city, such as L. Los Angeles is just as much a character as any other in this tale. Laine is a foster child, having been discarded and unloved most of her life. She meets Michael in high school and their brief encounter has a lasting impact on both their lives.
Michael is a rich kid turn movie-star, Hollywood's Golden Boy with two celebrity parents. You see why this could never work. I ran too fact, broke too many rules, and stayed on the right side of the law by too thin a margin. Catching the world, and me in the tractor beam of his personality. He did have an effect on me. That son of a bitch. He let me hope. But those moments together in high school were lasting and meaningful. When it ended, the consequence was dire for one and numbing for the other. Their reconnecting brings them back to life but also harshly shines the light on the past, on dirty, dark secrets and on just how different they are.
Especially knowing we couldn't last? That he was the opposite side of my coin, always parallel, never meeting but by some chance bending of the universe? Steal from the rich and give to the poor. I had a fantasy of a man who got arrested with me, pleaded innocent, and kissed me on the precinct steps when we made bail. Both trapped under who they think they are or who they are supposed to be and each struggles to fix things or do no further harm. I care about you. Your body, yes, but everything else too. If you're a fan of CD Reiss or love an original, moving contemporary romance, you should read this book.

Jonathan Drazen still remains as one of my top favorite dominant alpha-male and she never disappoints with her sensual reads that are intense yet emotional. While ShutterGirl is a departure from her usual writings and ventures into the contemporary territory, naturally I was a little apprehensive but slowly I found that fear dissipating as I allowed myself to be hypnotised by CD Reiss's poetic writing.
ShutterGirl is a contemporary romance story set in the glitz and glamorous world of Hollywood. Laine Cartwright is a paparazzi who's at the top of the pack, armed with a camera as her weapon of choice. Coming from a rough childhood and being passed from one foster house to another, all she's ever known is to survive. Los Angeles is her battleground and along with her step-brother, they lived on the thrill of chasing the juiciest stories around.
Michael Greydon is America's golden boy and hailing from a family of celebrities, he's a Hollywood-material actor who is on-track with the stardom path set out for him. Always living by the set of rules and staying out of trouble, he tries to avoid being in the center of attention A night where the red velvet ropes drop and the paparazzi behind the camera shows her face, Laine and Michael reunites with each other after being revealed that they were high-school mates but circumstances had left them separated with a lasting impact.
Two individuals from polar opposites background and even after ten years later, they both still find themselves at the extreme ends of this glamorous industry. But they can't deny the attraction There were a number of things I enjoyed about this read and the main highlight for me is being CD Reiss's writing. Now I've only read her SoS series and while her scorching intense scenes took the spotlight for me from that series, I've never really given much emphasis on her writing.
With Shuttergirl instead, I started to notice her elegant writing prose and had me highlighting like crazy across the read. Right down to the nitty gritty deets of the Hollywood scene itself, I found myself latching onto these rich details that made me feel like I was walking down the streets of L. The plot itself was also quite a refreshing one for me being a star-crossed lovers prose done with a different twist.
A paparazzi being romantically linked to renowned actor, that's just calling for a PR disaster. It wasn't insta-love between these two which I appreciated because the author really took the time to lay out a strong foundation for both characters as she merges their past and present quite brilliantly that eventually builds into a really solid story for me. It didn't bother me that for a majority portion of the book, both MCs weren't officially a couple. Also for those of you expecting a handful of steamy scenes like this author usually brings with her erotica genre, consider yourself warned.
You won't be getting any dominant Drazen steamy-filled scenes here but rest assured, the undercurrent of sexual tension between these two was undeniable. Personally that appealed to me because it got me all antsy and dying for more while I continuously root for this couple. However, it did fall short for me when I felt the story dragged at certain places. Sometimes it also felt like some scenes were leading up to something great but it didn't just quite hit the mark.
Overall Shuttergirl took me by surprise seeing how this is different from CD Reiss's usual work. Her alluring writing took the spotlight and became much more prominent here, not to mention it really fleshed out the character depth which I highly enjoyed. The lack of smut didn't even faze me because I was just invested with these characters and their story. I'm definitely looking forward to CD Reiss writing more contemporary fiction from now on because she can certainly bag this genre alongside her erotica ones. ShutterGirl is a standalone contemporary romance read. ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

At first glance we see a paparazzi and an entitled celebrity, but we quickly learn there is so much more than meets the eye with these two. Laine Cartwright is a damaged girl, but she is also incredibly strong.
She has risen above everything and strived for success. Michael Greydon is Hollywood royalty and from outward appearances he has lived a charmed life. He attended the best schools, had an material possession money could buy, and could land a job based on his name alone. Even with that he has chosen to work hard and become an expert. Every choice, relationship and decision has been based on his career. While these two have found success in their careers, their personal lives are lacking. Here is when I fell in love.
These two people Michael and Laine, know each other, not just know of each other, but were friends for a moment in time. Can you see why I fell in love? Years later they have a do over and from there I was hooked. Reiss sold me by delivering relatable, but unique characters.
They are not the same people and the timing is so much better, but still there are obstacles in their way. She is the enemy, he is her pay check, but their connection is undeniable. I highly recommend Shuttergirl the writing is beautiful, the story is addictive and the connection is real. I devoured this book, reading it in one day, loving every twist and turn. Reiss outdid herself here, she has proven she can deliver beautifully written stories that are new and fresh. ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review. View all 50 comments. Laine and Michael knew each other from the past, but life threw them apart for ten years.
When life gets them on the same way again, can they have a second chance or this time their lives are too different? This book started out a little slow and I have to confess that in the beginning I was having some trouble connecting with the story. But I lik 4 Flashing Stars.
But I liked both characters, despite minor annoyances, so I kept going wanting to hear their story. Then, when it picked up it was freaking amazing. I loved their story and how it developed. Clearly, CD Reiss can write pretty much whatever she wants and she will do it always brilliantly. But since it was a standalone, an epilogue had been welcoming. View all 13 comments. It stays with you and lays dormant, sometimes you can forget and sometimes you are given a second chance.
ShutterGirl is a second chance love story. Michael Greydon is Hollywood royalty and Lanie Cartwright is a paparazzi. The two are suppose to be like oil and water- they are not suppose to mix. But they knew each other a long time ago in high school. Fast forward 8 years, Michael and Laine come face to face…….

Will need and desire and infatuation finally win? Shuttergirl is the courtship of Michael and Laine. While Michael lived the high life, Laine never really had a home or family. Her past can harm his career and Michael knows he should stay away from Laine but she makes him feel alive and normal. I loved the storyline. There was angst and turmoil. I felt the connection between Michael and Laine but I did find some parts of the book to be over descriptive and wordy. I really loved the ending. It put a smile on my face.
I tend to like the overdramatic, over the top actions when they are done in the name of love. I will admit that I was disappointed that there was not an epilogue. I want to believe in the HEA. I find that an epilogue seals the deal for me. The ending was fine, I just wanted more. ARC kindly provided by author in exchange for an honest review View all 39 comments. This is a story about first love, second chances, predetermined and redefined futures, ambition, the media and a city. LA, and mostly Hollywood, is a living, vibrant element in the story.
Michael, the hero, 4. Michael, the hero, was a pleasure to watch unravel, try to fix things and take control of his life. The story could have taken various directions. I would love some enemies-to-lovers elements thrown in. Going into this book, I knew that I got to experience the brilliance that is CD Reiss, the level of writing we are used to from her.
But, I know what CDR can deliver with a sex scene and all that precede and follow it. There IS sex and sexual tension, but not so intense and descriptive as I would prefer. But this is just me. This is a Contemporary Romance. Oh, and I absolutely loved those little things, like places and names, that subtly cross-reference to her other stories. She was scared and lonely, sensitive and breakable. View all 46 comments. CD Reiss Release date: May 16, Cliffhanger: No one can dispute she's at the top of her game when it comes to that genre. However, if you're looking for another erotically fueled story in Shuttergirl, you won't find that here.
This is a straight contemporary romance standalone. In fact, the sex content is actually really minimum. But don't let that dissua Title: But don't let that dissuade you. It didn't bother me in the slightest; she still manages to fill the pages with a sensually stimulating heat that encompasses every corner of the story. For me, this book was just as addictive as anything else I've read of hers.
I don't think anyone can wrap their words around every particle of you and grip you like a vise like this author can. The way this woman bound me with her words is pretty miraculous considering the fact that nothing much seems to be pulling me in quite like it used to. The premise is something that had me thoroughly intrigued: The hero is a movie star and the heroine a paparazzi. He's a golden god, a Hollywood actor with Midwestern morals. Michael Greydon was a star, a regular guy inside a body that would shoot across the sky.
She's a hardened woman, a product of a lost soul let loose on the city. She lives and breathes that city because she was raised in the dark alleys and seedy homes of criminals and people with unfulfilled good intentions. And the sum of her life experiences up to this point is survival. She's willing to do whatever it takes to make a dollar and that includes ruthlessly invading any star's privacy and personal business with no remorse. Like fish in a pond, I might admire their grace or color, but in the end, I ate them.
She's not someone who has a soft side, she's prickly and has been beaten down too many times to retain any optimism or desire to escape the career she's landed in. Although she isn't the most likeable of heroines, I found myself really admiring her right from the start. The author easily grabbed my empathy with Laine's boldness and the strength that radiated right off of her. I can get to a mark and get away with the shot faster than any of them, in heels and backward.
I'm prettier, I smell nicer, and I take exactly zero bullshit from celebrities. I don't work for them. I don't kowtow or suck up. If they're in public, their ass is mine. This is a form of a second chance romance. They didn't have a true romantic relationship in their younger years, but there was always an unspoken attraction between them that never got a chance to be exposed. Laine and Michael knew each other as teenagers when she was put in a wealthy family's home for a short time. They went to the same school but they were still on opposite ends of the social scale.
She was an unsociable outsider and he was the son of two Hollywood celebrities. They grew a strange friendship and held secret longings for one another. And when he left, she spiraled into a very dark time in her life. It was really difficult to read what she went through, most especially because she completely derailed her own life just looking for the love and acceptance that was denied her. When they finally reconnect after all those years, the odds are stacked against them more than ever before. Thier reputations and careers leave no room for attempting to pursue a relationship together.
But their attraction is voracious and it can't be ignored no matter how much they try. I was so completely immersed in their dance around each other. In their despair in hoping for more but expecting nothing. You could feel the need pouring off of both of them, the author did an amazing job bringing every emotion to the surface so effortlessly. As much as I loved the freshness of the story, the incredible writing, and the well fleshed out characters, the ending left me needing a little bit more.
There were two main conflicts in this story. One, Laine's past was threatening to come back and not only haunt her, but rip apart everything in it's path. And two, it was reiterated how different their worlds were and how impossible it would be for everyone to accept them as a couple without them losing their careers. I'm not going to spoil the ending, but let's just say that the resolution to how they would continue to thrive in Hollywood as a couple felt very rushed and very abrupt.

I needed an epilogue badly! I would definitely recommend Shuttergirl to anyone who's read and enjoyed CD Reiss in the past. She's proven without a doubt that she has the skill to pull off any genre she puts her mind to. I can't say enough about her writing, there's something about it that I click with effortlessly and I find that lacking in so many books I attempt to read. I gave it high points for that as well as my complete immersion from beginning to end.
If you haven't added this yet, give it a chance. It was a bumpy ride, but for me, well worth the effort. May 02, C. I can't wait to share Shuttergirl with you! This book is my first contemporary romance. It's hot and steamy, with an intense second-chance love story. It's got all the CD Reissness you have come to expect, without the spankings ; ONE movie star on the cusp of greatness. ONE broken girl who touched him. TEN years to forget her. View all 5 comments.
Apr 26, K. Another great read by C. The flawless writing style you've come to love from her but with a totally different story that true to form, pulls you in, urges you to turn the page and find out what happens next. BUT here's the kicker ShutterGirl is about a second chance at love from the person who saw the real you way back when, even when you couldn't face yourself.
A great read for lovers of the contemporary romance genre. Halfway through, I just wanted this book to be over, so I could move on to the next one. There were good moments but there were few and far between. There were too many inner monologues and not many dialogues. Too much telling and not much showing. I liked the aspect of Hollywood in the book, though and liked that I got to see what it's like to be a paparazzi and a Hollywood actor. Other than that, this was so boring, I was nearly snoring to death It's a case of personal tastes and unfortunately it's just not working for me.

View all 28 comments. What can I say about CD Reiss' books. They are so well written. Flawless interwoven story telling and great characters with so much depth. One of my favorite things is her heroines, they are not whiny or Wishy washy.
They are strong , confidant and intelligent women. Laine is no exception to that. Her past isn't perfect, in fact it is flawed, some might say ugly. Michael on the surface is an adorable actor from the perfect family , living the perfect life. Well we know that nothing and nobody is perfect, right?? Laine, a foster child and Michael, hollywood royalty crossed paths in high school.
They had a connection but their lives have taken them on different paths, until Laine becomes a paparazza and she becomes the Hunter and Michael is her prey. This could never work, right? These two are just too different. Well take the journey for yourself. Experience CD's Reiss' Hollywood in the only way she could tell. This is not her usual erotica story, but rather a Contemporary Romance with flawless writing, intelligent dialogue and a great story. I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
View all 8 comments. This is an alluring second-chance love story about two completely opposite people who dare to fall in love. Michael Greydon was born into a life of privilege. The son of two famous actors, he grew up Hollywood royalty. Rich, talented, and 4. Rich, talented, and athletically gifted, he had it all. Laine Cartwright grew up a foster child, bouncing from one foster family to another. Insecure, unwanted, and unloved, she had nobody and nothing. Michael and Laine went to the same high school and their paths crossed for a time before circumstances separated them.
Laine aka ShutterGirl has conquered adversity to become a confident, successful paparazzi. When they meet again, Michael is on one side of the velvet rope; Laine is on the other. Are they willing to fight expectations and risk their careers for a chance at happiness? I fell in love with Laine. She is fearless and resilient, loyal and so deserving of love. Michael is just an all-around decent guy — sweet, faithful, a problem fixer, and fiercely protective.
I want to make everything in your world right. Just let me in. Like a different world. The other side of the city. Deep brown and layered in cardamom. It has a swoon worthy ending that reminded me of some of my favorite chic flicks. The only thing that would have made it better would have been an epilogue.
Another winner for CD Reiss! View all 32 comments. You could not expect the kind of book it is with this blurb and IMO it's better this way. As I want others to experience it the way I did, you could guess I won't tell you much about the plot If you've read other books by CD Reiss, you should know ShutterGirl is both very different and very her at the same time.
Different because there is no smut. Yep you read that correctly. There are some very sexy scenes but if you are waiting for her usual you won't have it here. The very first star in this book is probably L. And yet It was like I was back in the game, in my car driving on Mulholland Drive, because CD's writing gets real like that. When you are thinking about L.
The guy is a perfect gentleman, never done anything wrong, always behaving with respect, Laine Cartwright is a girl who's only living for her next best shot. One easier where you have everything and everyone at your feet. One harder where you have to fight against everyone and be better than others. Michael and Laine have a past together. Laine remember it better and she can't seem to let him go even if she stays far from him, once again hidden behind her lens taking shot after shot of the guy she never had, yet wanted so much.
It will take only one night to change everything Michael who's so untouchable with a good reputation will see all crumble. Laine who is very well known and respected will become someone to avoid. What will happen to those two? A world separate them, yet they have a bond, an attraction both can't deny.
I loved the way the author set up the difference between both world but did a tremendous work to make them fit together. Sometimes I lacked a little more connection with their past. I've seen where Laine is coming from but less on Michael part. View all 29 comments. I've been craving a good stand-alone for a while now. Laine Cartwright is a paparazzi and L.
The city itself the only true home she has ever known. After her single mother was sent to prison, Laine was put on the never-ending merry-go-round of foster care. Families changed, friends came and went, but her city is ever constant. Acting is almost his birthright, and an easy career choice to boot. A celebrity and paparazzi could never work… Right? CD Reiss has made L. I am looking for a book with a sub plot of a dad working extra hard to buy his son a coat he wanted, that all the cool kids had.

The book is about a woman with two daughters who works at a dentist, eventually meeting a man with a bad past who moves in next door. She's battling for custody of her daughters with her cheating ex husband. Things escalate with her and the man eventually. R rated book, I am an adult. I believe the series is titled "Class A. He has a pocket sized computer that he runs programs on written in BASIC, I believe and each book had programs you could run on your computer after typing them in.
I remember in one book, The protagonist meets the president, who calls him a "Class Act", and our hero wonders if the President knows what he does on the side. Another adventure has our hero paired up with a dog in a secret base in i believe the Alaskan wilderness. Protagonist goes through a series of emotions like fear, anxiety, etc because an alien ship has landed. Protagonist describes the ship and the creatures coming out of the ship, as having hair "all over their head" - as if that was crazy weird. Big reveal at the end is that the protagonist is an extra-terrestrial and the aliens are humans from Earth.
Really great story on perspective and looking at things egocentrically. And a kid really wants to meet a certain famous hockey player.

Strong people were burdened with weights I've tried to find this book by googling small pieces of what I remember but I haven't found it yet. I'm looking for a book that I read when I was about 13 years old I'm 20 now I don't know very much about it, but it was a fiction book about a boy who lives in a government who decides everything for you. Everyone has to take a "medicine" or some sort of vitamin when they go out the door, by laying their hand on some sort of device, then you get a little sting and it detects your blood, so you can't skip your daily vitamins.
He eventually discovers that the drug is doing something to your brain and makes you forget stuff. So he tries to fool the device with an apple where he put his blood on. He stops taking the drugs and his memory becomes clear. He has some sort of girlfriend and convinces her to stop taking the drug too. And if you go against the law by having I think it was "good memories" or something like that, you get the death penalty. I really can't remember any more, I hope someone can help me out!! It starts out with a teenaged girl who falls in love but is torn by the fact that she's is embarrassed by her family and the boy she love's lifestyle.
So once she goes off to college she disconnects from her family and her childhood love and marries a rich boyfriend. Once married the honeymoon phase was really but then he started to change first he would just raise his voice but then it get physical. When she got pregnant she thought thing had changed but was still cautious but one he was just angry hit her so hard she fell and ended up going into labour. Thankfully both the woman and her baby girl were okay but once at home she tried her hardest to shield her daughter from her husband but sometimes it would be so sudden that there was nothing she could do, it got so bad that her daughter would be crying completely silent in fear of her father.
In desperate need for safety for her daughter she devises a plan where she packed up both of their necessities before hand. So when the husband left the mansion she would have had to pretend she's just going shopping and would dress herself and little girl to suit in order to fool the staff and the neighbors. Once out of the neighborhood she raced to father who was the leader of a gang or club of some sort for protection she drove non stop no matter how tired es she got. Only when she was inside the gates was she relieved, she got the car and walked up to her shocked father she passes out leaving her daughter silently crying in the back seat.
I can't remember the rest please help. Please help me find the name of this book. It starts out with a teenage girl who falls in love but is torn by the fact that she's is embarrassed by her family and the boy she love's lifestyle.

I can't remember the names or author. I remember reading a book about a girl who lives in a "perfect world" where the government decides everything for you. The whole place is surrounded by wall panels, in a globe shape. Her job is basically sitting in a chair and clicking any panel that flickers. One day she sees a panel flicker a bit outside of her designated zone, but when she checks it out something happens and she gets a warning. If you get 3 warnings, you are kicked out of the place. Her mother was kicked out of the place a long time ago. She remember that she got one strike because she was on the swings and went too high.
The flickering panel scenario gives her 2 warnings in total. At 18, all of the warnings are removed and you get a second chance. At 18, you also determine your future husband. You're also not allowed to wear white unless you work for the government. She finds her mother's wedding dress and wears it to the place where she will find her new husband, and there's two pictures that flash for her name. Then rebels come and attack the place and grab her but she escapes. I don't remember much after that except she somehow gets out of the utopia and finds out that people live outside the little bubble she's lived her whole live.
She doesn't trust anyone, there are bombs, people die, she goes back into her old bubble home. The master of the whole bubble place comes to her and he's fishy. Her mom is actually alive and she is the master of the rebels. Her mother wants her to take over, she says no, mother goes crazy, and she kills her. The girl is obviously shook and she ends up in a box that messes with her mind and actualizes her nightmares. There a boy involved too, idk how though. I know it's messy and all over the place, but that's what I remember. If anyone knows what this is or if it sounds familiar to you, please let me know!

Looking for a book that I read in my sophomore or Jr year of high school. All I can remember is it started in a village that was shot down, but a few escaped including this boy.

Actually he became the administrator of the hospital and his book is a series of stories about all of that. He tells us about one client whom rallied in the face of impossible odds again and again and again to reach adulthood. He spoke about having lifelong relationships with his very injured patients. He spoke about fund raising. All the special needs a hospital like his had and how he had to go about getting those needs met. He spoke about being mentored by the previous Administrator not really knowing what he was walking into. He spoke about it being a calling not a job.
At the end of the book was a chapter advising parents on what, where and how to get what they needed for their children should the need arise. An awesome book I lent to my client that was not returned that I need to repurchase so I once again have it in my library. Can any of you out there help me locate this amazing book?

He spoke about seeing every client holistically by looking ahead to where that client might be at age 18 or 25 or He spoke about having a lifelong relationship with each client that stepped through their doors.
He spoke about one client who had horrific medical issues which required inventive surgical interventions. He spoke about his fundraising efforts. About one donor whose child he had helped and how he gave back to the hospital. He spoke about the hospital never having enough funds for what they needed. He spoke about the previous administrator being his mentor. I lent this book to one of my clients and never got it back.

I'm looking for a book I read as a kid! Okay so here's what I know. It's a kids book kind of, like I read it when I was a kid.
It had a brother and sister who at one point I think the beginning are in a museum and a teapot is somehow significant. In the end they find a missing will that a lady was trying to hide. There's a skeleton in a raincoat involved but idk if it was the cover or what please help! I first read the book on Wattpad almost 7 years ago, but I'm pretty sure it was in the process of being published, so I figured it'd be worth a shot to check here. The story was about a woman who lived in a fantasy land where a certain numbers of years of charity work was required by the law and the world was divided into cultures by land, sea and air.
If I remember correctly, a man from the air was brought up on her beach by a young mermaid and she had to care for him.
