    These two made me happy. The unfolding of this story made me happy. Honestly, everything made me happy. I felt love pouring off these pages from beginning to end. Logan was the best hero anyone could ask for. He was passionate about Ella. He was passionate about his family. He was passionate about his goals. Gawd, he was so damn passionate and sexy and delicious! And Ella … damn ya’ll … I wanna be Ella when I grow up. She was passionate about Logan. She was passionate about her family. She was passionate about her goals. She was ridiculously self assured and sexy and delicious. Ella, Logan and this story were ALL THE THINGS!

  • Mindy Lou's Book Review

    I think one of the reasons I love contract marriage romances so much is because I get both a slow burn and an instant romance all in one. They may not be in love when it starts, but they are already a couple and living as man and wife as they get to know each other. It also appeals to me that they never expect to fall in love.

    Logan and Ella were particularly fun to see this happen with. Byron is all about his family business, and completely driven to run it as his father steps back. He doesnt

    I think one of the reasons I love contract marriage romances so much is because I get both a slow burn and an instant romance all in one. They may not be in love when it starts, but they are already a couple and living as man and wife as they get to know each other. It also appeals to me that they never expect to fall in love.

    Logan and Ella were particularly fun to see this happen with. Byron is all about his family business, and completely driven to run it as his father steps back. He doesn’t have time for a relationship. Having a contracted marriage is actually a perfect solution. Ella is more of a free spirit. She’s creative and less of a rule follower. She’s also exactly what Logan needed more than he knew.

    I was also pleasantly surprised to see a deeper side to Logan’s parents. We got to know them in Iron Crowne and they seemed like a perfect marriage. You can tell how much they love each other. In Crowne of Lies, we learn that there is more to them than that. Even perfect marriages struggle a time or two and come out stronger because of it. It really made this very, rich family seem more relatable.

    This one has more feels than I was expecting and I really enjoyed this couple. I’m glad to see the possibility of more books. I think there is more to tell about this family.

    AHHHH!! CD Reiss did it again. Crowne of Lies was an amazing blockbuster that took my breath away. If you are a fan of marriage of convenience stories, then this is for you!! Logan and Ella were so fiery and their banter was explosive. I loved this story so much!! This is one of the best stories I have read from Reiss!!

    After reading the amazing Iron Crowne I was so intrigued about Logan's story. I needed to read the story and meet the woman that brought this powerful man to his knees. His steadfast and sole focus on the family business wavered however when Ella entered his life. I love how she was his gamechanger and how pivotal she became to him. What he figured would be a marriage of convenience was anything but!! I loved the passion in this story and how we saw different facets to Logan in this book from the prior book in the series. 

    Overall this story was emotional, powerful, sexy and so addicting. This is another win from Reiss and I for one can not wait for more from her in the future!! Bravo! 5 stars! ~Ratula

    You know what I love about CD Reiss? The woman can write one heck of a sinfully sexy hero. I'm talking the cream of the crop here, people. A dirty talking god of a man. Logan Crowne was all of the things!

    You know what I love about CD Reiss? The woman can write one heck of a sinfully sexy hero. I'm talking the cream of the crop here, people. A dirty talking god of a man. Logan Crowne was all of the things!

    I'll give you a moment to compose yourself. Need a tissue? Some ice? All of the above. I'm telling you!!! The man damn near ruined me.

    If you're a fan of the marriage of convenience trope, this book is going to be your crack of choice.

    What I love even more that Reiss's dirty talking alpha males are her strong and sharp witted heroines. And boy did Ella check those boxes. She's the polar opposite of proper and tightly wound Logan. She's a free spirit, an artist, a woman that stands on her own two feet and will never let a man define her. But she's also desperate to sustain her beloved father's fashion label after his passing. She made a promise to him that is becoming increasingly difficult to keep with her step mother heading up the company. All she wants is enough money to buy the company outright, and the answer comes in the shape of an equally desperate Logan Crowne.

    All Logan has known for years is work. Running himself thin has never been a problem, until his father ultimately gives him an ultimatum. His brother will run the company while Logan goes out there and lives his life. And when he finds happiness and a woman to settle down with, he'll give him back the reins. Unfortunately Logan has no interest in love and happily ever afters like his parents' marriage. So what's a man to do? Pay a woman ten million dollars to marry him for a year. Ella challenges him at every turn. She's nothing like what he needs, but he soon finds that she becomes everything he craves.

    I loved the fiery chemistry between these characters. There's just something so hot about a tightly wound man with a wicked tongue and a free spirited artist with sass and a nose ring. They're polar opposites, but when they get together...FIREWORKS.

    I gobbled this up in one sitting. I've become completely obsessed with this series. And the set up for the next book? I DIE!!! I need it!

    A marriage of convenience trope is like chocolate ice-cream. It's not the most original or out-there, but it's comforting. And when done right, it will bring a smile to your face.

    Enter Logan Crowne. He's your typical, go-to rich alpha-male. He's hot, he's powerful, he wants to run his family's empire, and because of plot-reasons, he needs to get married. After doing a bit of research, Logan comes across Ella Papillion. Way back in the day they went to school together, until she mysteriously

    A marriage of convenience trope is like chocolate ice-cream. It's not the most original or out-there, but it's comforting. And when done right, it will bring a smile to your face.

    Enter Logan Crowne. He's your typical, go-to rich alpha-male. He's hot, he's powerful, he wants to run his family's empire, and because of plot-reasons, he needs to get married. After doing a bit of research, Logan comes across Ella Papillion. Way back in the day they went to school together, until she mysteriously dropped out. In the present day, she's a fashion designer employed at her father's company. He was a couture genius, but after he passed the company was left to Ella's stepmother, and she's been dreaming of taking the business back for years.

    After they establish their fake relationship will be mutually beneficial IT IS ON. Now, of course, they are both beautiful people, and they have great chemistry and the whole nine yards, can they truly pretend and not fall in love? The answer is, no, of course, they will fall in love - this is a romance novel.

    And I was about this give this book 3.5 stars, but after careful consideration, I decided to bump it to a 4, because although I have seen this plot so many times before, I had fun reading this - so much fun, people. Logan Crowne is swoony. Ella is crazy. She's a fashion designer by day turned Banksy at night. You have to love a woman that spray paints things and has street cred.

    They couldn't be more different if they wanted to, and I was there for every bit of it.

    If you like this trope, Crowne of Lies is a perfect swoony fun read, and I definitely recommend it.

    Thank you, C.D. Reiss and Social Butterfly PR for sending me an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Logan Crowne has been given an ultimatum of sorts, he needs to prove to his father that he is settled down and grounded enough in his personal life to take on the responsibility of running the family company. Marriage would be the preferred way of showing this and finally give him the role he has always wanted, deserves.

    First he approaches a dear friend about potentially faking a marriage with him and when that doesnt pan out she suggests someone who may be perfect to play the role of his wife

    Logan Crowne has been given an ultimatum of sorts, he needs to prove to his father that he is settled down and grounded enough in his personal life to take on the responsibility of running the family company. Marriage would be the preferred way of showing this and finally give him the role he has always wanted, deserves.

    First he approaches a dear friend about potentially faking a marriage with him and when that doesn’t pan out she suggests someone who may be perfect to ‘play’ the role of his wife convincingly until he gets what he wants. About 12 months should do it. Ella Papillion is the perfect candidate, he knows her from his school days and she wants something out of this too so it will benefit both of their interests.

    Ella wants to gain back control of her late father’s fashion business, protecting the family name and her heritage. She feels like it has been ripped away from her and to get it back she needs money. When Logan proposes his arrangement to her she realises she has nothing to lose and everything to gain so why not?

    They make up the narrative to their love story up as they go, adding jewels to their crown of lies that they wear whenever they are trying to convince their family and friends that their super fast, insta love story is real. The only thing is they don’t realise that they are lying to themselves too, avoiding the truth of what is happening for real between them.

    Logan was not looking for anyone to permanently settle down with but it feels like Ella maybe that woman. You know how they say when you least expect it you find what you had no idea you were looking for? They definitely have chemistry and despite crossing the sexual line a few times, they have agreed to stay platonic from now on.

    Ella never expected it to be so hard to not give into temptation. A girl has needs and sleeping across the hall from the gorgeous Logan is messing with her hormones big time. It’s not just that though, she is growing fond of him and looks forward to seeing him every morning, sharing her life with him.

    All good things must come to an end right? Or do they… This was so much fun to read over the past weekend.

    Refreshing non man-whore Hero.

    Hero and heroine were in same high school though she was younger than him so although he noticed her, her age meant he wouldn't have got involved.

    No other woman or man drama.

    Brief mention of high school girlfriend.

    It's been mentioned its slow burn, when they meet they both are thinking of sex quite quickly and have sex, with no feelings but its slow burn in the sense that making the marriage real takes longer.

    It was okay.

    HEA.

    Epilogue.

    As a sidenote I hate the cover.

    DNF @ 65%.

    It's hard for me to quit anything after the halfway mark, but my time is too precious to waste.

    I'm not understanding where all the 5 stars are coming from. While the writing is perfectly fine, the plot is overly contrived and the "chemistry" between the characters is also not entirely believable.

    It's a book strung together haphazardly punctuated by sex scenes that are somehow supposed to represent the deepening the characters' feelings for each other.

    DNF @ 65%.

    It's hard for me to quit anything after the halfway mark, but my time is too precious to waste.

    I'm not understanding where all the 5 stars are coming from. While the writing is perfectly fine, the plot is overly contrived and the "chemistry" between the characters is also not entirely believable.

    It's a book strung together haphazardly punctuated by sex scenes that are somehow supposed to represent the deepening the characters' feelings for each other.

    Fake marriages are not one of my fave plot devices, but done well (in HR particularly) I can accept. Modern fake marriages are REALLY far fetched, bc we all have free will in this day and age. But I was willing to try it and see.

    Nope, didn't work. In what universe does a confident, gorgeous CEO have to be coerced into marrying before he's ready? Apparently in a world where the father is trying to make a dying mother feel better about her unsettled, workaholic son.

    SERIOUSLY???? Can't buy that stupid plot

    (oh btw, I don't usually like billionaire tropes either) - why did I get this book, you ask? bc of the guy on the cover, damn it!

    Then, stupid plot gets stupider by pairing the guy with a girl who's "just as desperate" - not some cinderella, but an heiress who wants to buy back her father's company.

    SERIOUSLY???? what kind of world is this? billionaires and heiresses... yeah, I can REALLY relate.

    Then, the 2 meet and sparks fly (they used to go to school together, she was in a younger grade) which leads to random rough sex on a car.

    NO FEELINGS, they promise each other.

    But apparently the random rough sex (after she's been celibate for 4 years btw, taking his "big cock" roughly and loving it - that too, is very believable... NOT) DID end in "feelings" but then they agreed (after another bout of sex cuz they couldn't resist) to not touch each other any more, except for the sake of pretense.

    6 months later... their attraction is about to blow. Cuz they've agreed to also not cheat while married for a year. So... SEX HAS TO BE HAD!!!

    But this time, feelings are totally involved...

    And that's where I left it. @65%. Because I've been skipping the random stuff in here leading up to this point. I don't feel the "magic" between the MCs. Just seem like privileged ppl with chemistry who will make their fake marriage real by the end of the book.

    It could have been any Tom Dick and Harry or Sue, Ann and whatever female name equiv. Don't get at all why it has to be THESE TWO.

    But maybe this wasn't meant to be a romance. or a love story. it was meant to be a string of sex scenes wrapped in a convoluted plot.

    Disappointed.

    oh fuckity, fuck, fuck...

    I feel bad for saying this, but as an avid reader who obviously reads a lot and reads fast, to say that i had trouble following up with these characters and the flow of the story is an understatement...

    it too me almost 5 days to finish this, cause yeah, I was that much involved.. :/

    it's me, not you...obviously

    but still, dammit, I loved the first book, I even like this author's writing, i've read her previous books, so i know what i m getting myself into...but here, it's

    unsatisfied yet tempted...

    these two made me feel aggravated BUT the general notion of their "opposites-attract-arranged-romance" fell flat... :(

    Although the cover and the blurb were very appealing, I could only read up to 38% and finally dnf it. I felt completely detached from the characters and didnt get any feels.
