Review

"Forbidden yet sweet. "Shuttergirl" will make you believe that love has the power to break down all barriers. CD Reiss shows us her sweet side, but still manages to keep things sexy as hell." Claire Conteras, author of "There Is No Light In Darkness""

"Tender romance, smart writing. A total winner. Smart and romantic with characters you will root for until the end. I'm already looking forward to reading this book again. A story rich with tenderness and romance, written with the intelligence and wit that is all CD Reiss. I loved everything about "Shuttergirl"!" Mia Sheridan, bestselling author of the Sign of Love series"

Rich with tenderness, romance and wit I loved everything about it. Mia Sheridan, "NY Times" bestselling author of "Archer s Voice""

"I went into "Shuttergirl" not knowing what magic CD Reiss had created. Instantly, I was swept away with perfect prose, incredible imagery, and a character connection I loved. In my mind, it was a perfect modern day fairy-tale where the loved and hated try to bridge the chasm of society's unwritten laws and listen to what they want, rather than what Hollywood tells them. It's the shit. Buy it." Pepper Winters, bestelling author of the Monsters in the Dark series"

"Engaging, sexy, and noteworthy, "Shuttergirl" is just another example of why CD Reiss is one of my go to authors. Her clean writing style, flawed but relatable characters, and well-crafted story make this book one that's hard to put down even after you read the last page." Kristy Bromberg, bestselling author of the Driven Trilogy"

"Rich with tenderness, romance and wit I loved everything about it." Mia Sheridan, "NY Times" bestselling author of "Archer's Voice""

"A confident, badass heroine and a swoon worthy, good guy find each other in CD Reiss's latest contemporary romance. It's a Hollywood affair with more colors of reality than fairytale, depicting an honest and endearing paparazzi meets movie star relationship that captures all the swoon and flutters of the best love stories. With strikingly beautiful prose and the contrasting gritty, vivid Los Angeles setting, "Shuttergirl" is Reiss's finest work yet." Laurelin Paige, author of the bestselling Fixed Trilogy"

About the Author

CD Reiss is a USA Today 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 gave her a big enough ego to try her hand at novels. She'll tell you all about it in the back, where a cord of wood awaits.
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

This was a really good book and was an interesting plot/choice of characters. My heart ached for Laine sometimes~ her background was so very sad but she was beautifully written and so you really admired the strong person she had become through it all. I liked the secondary characters, Lucy in particular which surprised me.
So why not 5 stars? I never quite felt like I connected with Michael . He always seemed so in control, even when things were spiralling. I wanted more emotion from him. Also, I wanted more of them together, it felt a bit brief somehow. Laine was colour and passion and layers of character but Michael felt a bit bland at times.For me, he was at his best when he was in a fight with someone and the scene near the end where he says he loves her. Wow , more of that please. Also, it absolutely needed an epilogue. I really feel that it would work well with a story like theirs to finish it off with a look into their future. I saw that Ms Reid's may put one into a newsletter which would be great, but in the book would have been better.
So, a really good book with an intriguing and moving storyline. Just really want that epilogue to compliment that gorgeous last scene which my inner romantic swooned at!!

What a lovely contemporary romance! It might be the first time CD Reiss branched out purely into this category, but even her contemporaries feel edgy. They have sharp teeth and dark secrets. As you can guess, I loved it! *grinning*

Laine Cartwright aka Shuttergirl is one of the best paparazzi in Hollywood, she is ruthless, has a great intuition for getting into a right place at the right time, and her word is gold. Michael Greydon is a Hollywood sweetheart. He's got a fantastic reputation, good manners, a gorgeous face and plenty of talent. But once upon a time Laine and Michael were friends, and she had a crush on him. Now she stalks him and makes money on his pictures.

What would happen if these two get romantically involved when their respectful worlds are set against each other? Michael would question his desire to please everyone instead of doing what he wants and Laine will put her career on the line, because who would trust a paparazza who crossed the line into the enemy camp?

It's tender, bittersweet, hot and somehow very real. As usual Miss Reiss describes the atmosphere of L.A. so vividly, the reader has no problem imagining himself right in the thick of it. Laine is complex and self-assured, and doesn't shy away from the truth, even if it's really painful. Michael is full of suppressed feelings and ready to explode. The dynamics between these two is fascinating!

I loved the ending especially: it's somehow made this book even more solid with its happy-for-now, full of possibilities attitude An easy, quick and entirely satisfying summer read, recommended!

Shuttergirl is a gritty and realistic portrayal of how easily it is to fall into the role of self-fulfilling prophecy. Being lucky and aware enough to realise the mistakes made while living with the regret of having gone through certain events. Yet, ultimately all of our life experiences shapes us into the person we become. A very 'what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger' scenario with amazing characters you can't help but fall for.

While the romance does play a large part within the plot it is the characters and their development that will keep the pages turning at a fast pace. Some of the situations depicted are uncomfortable to witness, however, provide much-needed insight into how vulnerable young people become targets for lowlifes.

Shuttergirl by CD Reiss
4 stars!!

“Months of longing, years of forgetting, and a few days of reawakening were culminating now.”

I am a sucker for second chance romances and while the first time they never really got off the ground the connection was there. The first time the romance was blossoming, the friendship developed but circumstances had other ideas. Fast forward ten years and their paths would cross again.

“She was a vortex. I’d avoided getting swallowed up in her once, and now, more than ever, I needed to avoid it again.”

Michael Greydon was Hollywood’s Golden Boy, the son of two actors; it was in his blood, his genes. While it may not have been his first career choice it was the one he ended up with and he was damn good at it. He lived his life by what was expected. He was good, he was punctual, he never bent the rules and never exploited his fame, he was the perfect actor and everyone was vying for his talents.

Laine Cartwright was a girl born on the wrong side of the tracks, coming from a broken family and going through the foster system so many times it was like a revolving door of parents my heart physically ached for her. Laine though was made of strong stuff, she was a survivor, she had made the best of the bad hand that she had been dealt and while it was tough to get to there, she was at the top of her field. She was a paparazza, also known as “Shuttergirl.” Laine was confident, resilient, independent but she had her insecurities. She craved acceptance, craved belonging and just wanted to be loved. But when you haven’t been loved your whole life it is hard to accept that you are worthy and at times those insecurities floated to the surface.

Ten years before.
