Product description

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""

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"

"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"

"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.

My favourite thing about CD Reiss' ShutterGirl was the ShutterGirl herself, Lanie. She's the embodiment of the underdog. The hard working, unsung hero who was dealt a s***ty hand in life but with sheer will, determination and a refusal to quit, ultimately finds her Hollywood ending.

The story centres around Lanie and Michael. Lanie is a paparazza and Michael the Hollywood golden boy. Like oil and water, they don't mix. Lanie thrives at night, hunting her next money making photo and Michael bathes in his Hollywood glow.

I found ShutterGirl to be a second chance romance of sorts. It's gritty (which I find reflective of CD Reiss' writing) and the the romantic in me would like liked a smoother ride for Lanie in the latter stages of the book. The consolation is that without the speed bumps we wouldn't have witnessed her achieve the success, in her career & love life, she greatly deserved.

CD Reiss has done it again! Her writing style captivates from start to finish, never letting you go. I fell in love with the characters from the beginning. You feel like you are right there with them experiencing all of their emotions. And there are MANY emotions you will feel when you read this second chance love story. Every chapter will have you wanting more. The writing is simply entrancing.

The characters? Michael. Hollywood good guy. Laine. Hollywood paparazzi. What could go wrong? How will this love story end? You really need to read it to find out. You will not be disappointed. A definite must read!

Shuttergirl is primarily a story about love, loving freely, without reservation or hindrance from the past or present. It's about taking a risk with your heart, a leap of faith for the ultimate prize. Shuttergirl is about letting love lead the way.

Laine and Michael initially met at Breakfront School a number of years prior to the start of Shuttergirl. Back then he had a girlfriend and Laine had a fear of being hurt. Shuttergirl transports us to a later place in their life when fate works to bring them together.

Michael is from a Hollywood dynasty, with a legion of fans he's a superstar in his own right and the epitome of a gorgeous man... Handsome, sexy, caring, kind, charismatic.... He's swoon worthy and divine, the perfect romantic hero and his career is set to sky rocket because not only is he is gorgeous, he's a highly skilled and talented actor.

Laine is a survivor. She makes her living taking pictures of celebrities and selling them to the highest bidder. More than anything, she doesn't wish to upset the equilibrium of her life. Nobody nurtured her into adulthood, the most consistent person in her life is her stepbrother Tom, her light and a very important part of her being. I warmed to him greatly and have my fingers crossed for Tom’s story. Laine learned to take care of herself which, in turn nurtured the abrasive and defensive edge to her personality, an edge that forms part of her vulnerability. She doesn't consider herself worthwhile or important in the scheme of her surroundings... Despite her vulnerabilities and her defensive nature, I still felt the delicate strength of her character. In her simplest, most basic and broken down form, Laine is a woman who longs to be loved and have that love reciprocated.

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!!

At times like this, I wish I had the ninja skills of the lovely Irene Oust. If I had those skills I would make a video trailer of this book.

It would have Adele's song, When We Were Young playing. The start would be the flash bulbs of a photo hungry pack of paparrazos on the hunt for the perfect shot to bring them mega bucks.

The camera would roll to a shot of a teenage girl sat in the bleachers watching a lone boy practice tennis. There would be a couple kissing on the roof. Grainy black and white photos. Oscar night. A beautiful girl in a pink dress. The Hollywood sign.

Unfortunately, I don't have Irene's skills so I can only put pics on a pinboard just for me and listen to that song while I think of Michael and Laine.

I absolutely loved this book. Sure I love the Drazen family books (Fiona makes the occasional fleeting appearance in Shuttergirl as does Claire Contreras) but this is a totally different kettle of fish.

Laine is the archetypal girl from the wrong side of the tracks her pulls herself up by the boot straps to make something of her life. She has the help of monochrome Tom and the master photographer Irv, who makes Laine his protege. Isn't she just brilliant? She is feisty, unafraid and twit twoo sexy, she kind of reminds me of Jennifer Lawrence.

Michael is one of those Hollywood super stars who will give genuine smiles and waves. He ain't a faker, not a Billy bullsh!tter. He's the real deal. Friends are actual friends not cling ons. He doesn't need therapy for a childhood spoiled by fame and fortune or for having fckd up parents. He is just Mike.

The writing is full on brilliant. Pictures conjured from words. Now I just need to find the right pink dress and the right pic of the Hollywood sign.
