“Fans are going to go completely nuts over the irresistible Bryon Crowne and his intelligent, fiery counterpart Olivia.”
-—Jodi Ellen Malpas, #1 New York Times bestseller
Iron Crowne, an all-new “fast-paced and scorching-hot” enemies to lovers standalone from New York Times bestselling author CD Reiss, is available now!
Byron Crowne is a charming liar and a gorgeous monster.
I detest him.
I can't resist him.
He’s awakened desires I didn’t know I had.
When he touches me, I need to fight him . . . and I need him to win.
Our one night stand bruises my skin and leaves dents in the walls, but the sheets aren't the only thing we shred that night.
And suddenly, the stakes are higher than ever.
Olivia Monroe lights a fire in me that died a long time ago.
I’m a different man when I’m with her. I need to own her, take her, mark her as mine.
Everything changes when she might be pregnant and for the first time in my life . . . I’m powerless against this stubborn, untamable woman.
She’s the one in control and I have an impossible job:
Prove I’m worthy to be a father.
CD Reiss sure knows how to write dominant alpha males. Jonathan Drazen is an all time favorite of mine. Byron Crowne is all alpha and dominant in every aspect of his life. Including in the bedroom. He came close to overtaking Drazen’s place.
Byron knows how to take control and did so over Olivia very efficiently.
Olivia is a fierce and opinionated woman who knows what she wants as well. She has her career all settled now all that’s missing is a child.
Iron Crowne is an enemies to lovers romance. Olivia and Byron had the enemies part down. I enjoyed how they fed off other’s energy and the sexual attraction and lust was simmering beneath the surface. No doubt about their chemistry. They’re very sexually compatible.
Byron’s family was introduced and his brother Logan made an impression along with their parents. Logan’s story is going to be interesting.
I struggled with the premise of the book. Them having a child together and no relationship. Just sex. It was very insta lust which I was fine with but when Olivia all of sudden loves Byron despite how often she’s acknowledged her dislike of him it became an issue for me. Also Byron had an epiphany out of the blue despite his past relationship struggles and decided he loved Olivia too. I needed more development story and character wise for them loving each other felt believable. It resulted in the story feeling rushed.
Overall I liked Iron Crowne. It didn’t wow me but I’m intrigued with the Crowne family. I’m a huge fan of the author and will continue to read her work cause she writes some fabulous alpha male heroes. I have faith that Logan is all alpha like his brother.

Excerpt“Why should I sleep with you?” I cross-examined the witness. It was the only way to manage Byron. He considered his cup as if committing to his goal, then studied the way my finger tapped the counter as if choosing a strategy, then pondered my face as he decided on his tactic. “Because you’re wet already,” he said with a deep knowledge of what aroused women looked like. “Because you want what I can give you. Your head hasn’t even acknowledged it, but your body knows.” “That’s—” I was going to end in a denial, but my nipples were hard. “—not relevant. You and I don’t make sense.” “That’s correct.” He gulped tea. I left my cup on the counter, refusing the challenge. “We are a disaster. You despise me too much to want a relationship and just enough to turn you on. And from what I can tell, you don’t want to get involved enough to force an ethical quandary. So, if you agree in principal, I have a proposal.” Agreeing in principle meant revealing how badly my body ached for him. Disagreeing meant never satisfying that ache. “I agree in principal.” “My proposal is one night. One full night…” I could commit to that, and I was about to when he continued. “…where I own your body.” “Wait.” “You let me own you when we fuck. You come when I say. You obey me without hesitating. That’s what you want and you know it.” My cheeks prickled, radiating the heat of my shame. “No, then.” I pushed my cup away. “It’s never been like that. I’ve had three long relationships and a couple of flings but never—” “—really enjoyed it.” It was all lies… even when he spoke the truth, he lied.
About CD Reiss
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.
