JennHevy - Absolutely Incredible
First off I can't review this duet separately, there's just no way. So this is for both Marriage Games and Separation Games. There is a reason they call CD Reiss the "Shakespeare of smut". These books are so beautifully written, you don't even realize how dark, hot and sexy it is; and by the time you do, you're so deep in the story and what the characters are feeling it doesn't even matter. Adam & Diana are the epitome of what it means to do what it takes to save your marriage. But, will it be enough? In the meantime, they'll learn just as much about themselves as they learn about each other. When you start this duet, make sure you have the second book, Separation Games at the ready. I literally read both books in 2 days (I had to take a break for my daughter's H.S graduation). Any quote you read by another author regarding this set is entirely true. I can't recommend it enough. It will break you and put you back together even better than you were before ;).
lmpanthermom - A+++
I stayed up until 2am this morning because I simply COULD NOT put this down! Christine is an amazing storyteller. That much I discovered much too late, in my opinion. But, better late than never!
I began this book hating Diana. I didn’t agree with her decision and I thought she was being incredibly selfish by not talking to Adam before things progressed to this point. This happens far too often in our society. No one is willing to tell their spouse what is bothering them.
I ended this book loving Diana and hating Adam. She opened herself up to things she never knew she wanted or needed and finally got what she had been craving for so long. He won. He got what he wanted. Then...ugh. That’s it. I’m not giving spoilers. I didn’t peg him for being a coward, but that’s how I see him now.
I now have to go read Separation Games to find out whether or not I can forgive him.😳
Aras40 - Talk about a book hangover!
I had heard so much about this book, but hadn't gotten around to buying it. Then I received a copy in my Romance Reveal subscription box. Why did I wait so long to read it? This was so amazing. While it definitely is not going to be a book for everyone, you should give it a chance, it is so worth it. It is intense and so much different than I expected. I finished it and immediately had to get the second book in the duet. I could not stop thinking about it and processing what I had read. Loved it!
Geynar G. - Can’t wait for the second book!
This book had me hooked. Since the beginning you feel connected to the characters their struggle to really find out who they are. At time it really got me mad thinking like really, really you are doing this!! But I loved every second of it. Marriage games is epic and I bet the second part will be too. Can't wait!!
LilBrady1220 - Marriage Games
Drop everything you are doing, put on your comfy pants and grab a bottle of wine, don’t forget the glass, sit down and be ready to read the most amazing book.. comparing to other books won’t do! This one will bring you to your knees..
Adultbooksrmyjam - Wow, what a story!
The second book is going to be amazing after what just happened at the end.
This was so much more than BDSM. To me it's about finding yourself, having an open mind, trust, communication and honesty. I thought this story was pretty powerful. I don't know, I could go on and on but you should read it yourself to make your own judgment.
Carolinagirldv - Oh please
I did enjoy the writing style. That's where the enjoyment ended. For 2 intelligent people they didn't have a clue what they wanted from themselves or each other or from life. And no man would be a Dom and that talkative.
Myob2 - Never read
I purchased this based on the sample not noticing that it was the first of a series. I make it a practice not to dig into series' until they're complete, it's too frustrating. So this will sit in my library unread until the series is complete. Then I'll read the first one & decide if the rest are worth it....
So now I've read this and I'm glad I didn't until I could purchase the rest of the story. I really hate cliff hangers! That said, it's a great story. I love BDSM with characters that feel real, that make mistakes & second guess themselves. Both MCs in Marriage Games are such people. I look forward to reading an HEA for them.
Cath_87 - This book is beyond 5 stars
What would you give up for the love of your life? In doing so, would you be whole or would you be fooling yourself into thinking you are complete. You cannot deny who you are is the message of part one.
What would you do if the unthinkable was what you desired? That what you have convinced yourself into thinking was wrong on every level, but also so right. Being submissive does not mean that you are not an empowered woman is the message of the second half.
CD Reiss has a way of drawing you into a story with characters that jump off the page and a storyline so addictive you can't stop reading until the end. This book is beyond 5 stars.
Fanciesreading - Great from the beginning till the end!
Finally a good read to lust over! Thank you CD! The story line kept me interested and I was re-reading parts just for fun. I was searching for another series to start but having trouble finding any new reads with enough story to keep me interested. There are so many D/S books out there that authors are just pumping out worthless reads with the same stuff over and over. I was really get bored. I'll definitely buy more books by CD knowing your creative genius is bound to be entertaining!
RaeM18 - Emotional
I've never read a book like Marriage Games before. It was emotional, gut wrenching, a love story like no other! In the beginning my heart broke for Adam. He had no idea that his wife, Diana was unhappy in their marriage. His love for her was so deep and she was so cold and closed off to him, he was so lost. When he asked for 30 days at his cottage, I thought he was going to try to have her fall in love with him all over again, but that's not what he was doing, and when I realized what he was doing, my heart broke for Diana! In the beginning, I didn't like Diana, because I didn't understand her but when she gave her pov, I understood her, where she was coming from, her fears, her hopes and dreams. What Adam did to her at the end of the book, was so cruel, I cried for Diana. This book will leave you breathless!!!
Carny112 - So great
I love this author's writing style, this is my first book of hers but I am going to buy another one ASAP.
Christine Shh Moms Reading - a gifted author
I read the blurb for this one and had to have it. I love CD Reiss books and though this one was addicting from the very first page, I felt like I was missing something. I don't read a ton about D/s relationships but what grabbed me was the blurb and the possibility of Adam winning back the love of his wife.
He has thirty days to change her mind.
I enjoyed the past/present storytelling and seeing the differences from when they started to now. This book is about a couple's journey into rediscovering themselves. To understand what was missing in their lives and to either fix their marriage or part ways.
It ends in a cliff which is disappointing because I want to know what happens to them. Hopefully book 2 comes out soon!
I will say this...This book has Ms. Reiss's trademark poetic storytelling that sparks interest and opens your eyes and thoughts to different things. It's difficult to pinpoint what was missing for me...maybe it was lack of emotion and too much of the same situation with our heroine on her knees, but I wanted more depth than the repetitiveness.
Regardless that this wasn't my fave Reiss book, I will continue reading and supporting this author bec I love her work and she is truly gifted. I look forward to book 2 and what is to come of this couple. I hope for a happy ending *fingers crossed*

NaughtyBookBlog - Why are there only 5 Stars?
Normally books that contain elements of BDSM aren’t my first choice. They really have to be intriguing to catch and hold my attention. Ironic considering the Fifty Shades trilogy was the series that sparked my burning book addiction. But when CD Reiss writes books with BDSM elements, I don’t just read them. I devour them. This author is my High Priestess of BDSM. She takes an element that might seem foreign and unnatural to the inexperienced and naïve masses, and turns it into a spiritual revelation. An essential element. An event worthy of worship. She makes you think of things in away you never though of it before. Shocking, yet beautiful and deeply thoughtful. Objective, yet definitive.
But let’s set all that aside for now, because I don’t want you reading this review and thinking that Marriage Games is just another BDSM book, because it’s not. It’s so much more than that. These characters are so deep they crawled inside my brain, put down roots and made themselves a new home. They started taking up real estate in my soul. There is so much detail, innuendo and intensity in this story and I was questioning EVERYTHING. About the characters. The symbolism of word choices and references made by the characters. About myself. What would you give up for love? More importantly, how far would you go to keep it?
The cliff-hanger wasn’t quite as brutal as I was expecting it to be. I’m fully expecting all those little hints and details to come together in Separation Games. I have plenty of theories running through my mind as to what will happen next, yet I’m bracing myself because I’m sure I’m going to be blindsided by a shocking twist I never saw coming.
Aaiska - Great book
This is a great book, I couldn't put it down. It was sexy, and a great read. Worth the purchase.
Cupcakes&Pie4U - Marriage Games by CD Reiss
Loved this book kept me up all night and the next day. Couldn't put it down. Can't wait for Jan 3rd for the sequel. Marriage is not easy but maybe we can all try throwing in a few games just to keep things interesting. Wouldn't you all agree😍😜
Great book 7589 - Loved it
Can’t wait to read the next
