White Knight by CD Reiss


Catherine's long-lost love is found.

Catherine Barrington is a rich girl. Chris Cartwright is a poor boy.
He left her to make something of himself. A man she could be proud of. A man she could bring home to her parents. A man she could marry.
On the trading floor he became the man he knew he could be. Now, it’s time to return.
Rich girl.
Poor boy.
She didn’t care about his money, but he didn’t believe her. Soon after he left, all the money was gone.
Her life is hell.
Now he’s back, and he’s different. Pristine. Gorgeous. Rich.
Rich boy.
Poor girl.
Money was never the barrier, until now.

White Knight from CD Reiss is a standalone from the same world as her King of Code & Prince Charming “with its own beginning, middle, and end. You don't need to read anything else to read White Knight.I’m usually a stickler for reading series & companions in order so to speak but can honestly say you truly do not need to read the others to enjoy this story.  That said, read King of Code & Prince Charming when you get a chance – they are too good to miss.
 Told in first person, from dual perspectives, with flashbacks throughout, this is a sweet, sexy “Whenever I feel rose petals, I think of your skin.” & passionate “I’d break walls and set the town on fire for what he made me feel.” sad at times, a regretful coming of age & sorrow filled second chances romantic tale.  A story of small town royalty, first love “What we had, I’ve never felt before or since.”, lost opportunities & discovering purpose & the things that matter most in this life.  “…but I wanted to be wanted more than I wanted happiness.”  Loyalty between family & friends who protect as their own “…that they take care of us, and when folks here agreed, it was a solemn oath.”  The internal struggle of each of these characters & the way they strive to ultimately be “Two people making it work despite all the odds.” understanding that all they went through made it possible for them to “… become what you were meant to be.”
So much emotion, a short read that was just enough – with nothing left “…undone, unsaid, broken.”

“Respect the thorns. Love the rose.”

 “Not even winged monkeys Not even.”
