She didn’t care about his money, but he didn’t believe her. Soon after he left, all the money was gone.

The Perfect Romance

C.D. Reiss’ highly anticipated White Knight is everything her fans could have hoped for in this fourth and final book of her American Royalty Universe series of standalone contemporary romances.

Ms. Reiss’ story flows like a lazy river between 13 years in the past when her characters were 16 years old to the present. Both the main characters, Chris Cartwright and Catherine Barrington tell their tale. It is a classic story of loving and being worthy of love. I am in awe of Ms. Reiss’ effortless transition from describing young, naïve, and inexperienced lust between Chris and Catherine at age sixteen to the hungry wanting of two adults who need each other like they need oxygen.

Catherine grew up privileged. Chris grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. Through no fault of her own, Catherine and the town named after her family fell far from grace. Chris rode a shooting star to financial success on Wall Street. Catherine became the uncanonized Saint of Barrington. Chris became divorced, less rich, and lonely after the loss of his beloved dog, Lancelot.

The story of Chris and Catherine’s young love is touching and quintessential young adult fiction. Ms. Reiss’ quietly displays the breadth of her talent by incorporating a YA romance within an adult contemporary romance and making the YA romance feel like it is a genre that she has been writing for years.

“Back then, you gave me reason to be my own woman, and when you left, I became that woman.”

Back in the present, Catherine struggles with lost love, personal fulfillment, needs, desires, and obligations. I spent a restless night in Catherine’s head as she tosses and turns with the ebb and flow of her thoughts, choices, fears and desires now that the boy she thought she lost has returned. After some deep thought and turmoil, Catherine eventually understands that she is happy with who she became, and she realizes it wouldn’t have happened if she had followed Chris. However, she struggles with the hurt of him leaving, of her perception of being dumped. As the sun rises, Catherine still feels tentative, but she at least knows that she will pursue what she wants, needs and dreams for, and she will be open to Chris joining her in this journey.

While Catherine has spent years crying over the loss—both hers and the townsfolk—she is a supremely strong woman. I love that when Chris returns home to bury his dog along with hoping to rekindle something with Catherine, and Catherine chooses to put herself first. I loved that Chris returned humble. I loved that Chris completely understood that Catherine would not have liked who he was in New York once he became successful. I loved that at the start of the book, Chris realizes that what he needs to be happy is not the wealth that he chased after, but the love of a good woman, in other words, his “Catherine of the Roses”. His only hope is to prove to her that he is now worthy of her.

“The man I am now wants the woman you are now”.

In this enchanting, swoony book, Ms. Reiss has intersected lines and shown her readers the tangential plot points of the prior books in this series. The heart wrenching beginning of White Knight parallels the timeline in King of Code. The beautiful culmination of the story is filled with love, friendship, and 749 roses, give or take a few.

“I’d done much without her, and I’d done much for her. But I hadn’t achieved anything until I turned her sadness into joy”.

Sweet, tender, and filled with yearning, broken hearts and unfulfilled wishes, White Knight is a #MustRead of 2018.

He can be my knight anytime

The best kind of second chance romance! I loved it. This was a beautifully written story and I loved every word. It was sad, witty, and happy all rolled into one.

A Second Chance Love Story That Will Gallop In And Steal Your Heart

I absolutely love a second chance romance and CD Reiss delivered in spades with White Knight.

Set in the world of King Of Code but a standalone novel, we get the story of Catherine and Chris.

Catherine Barrington is brought up with money and a life of privilege, and with those perks comes certain expectations and standards that she must abide by- per her parents. But when her eyes meet Chris Cartwright’s for the first time, all of those rules are forgotten and life as she knows it will never be the same again.

Chris Cartwright grew up in the exact opposite situation as Catherine. He’s poor, with a less than a desirable home life and labeled as part of the help, but none of that can stop his heart for falling for beautiful, Catherine Of The Roses.

This story gives you both the past and present lives of Chris and Catherine. You get to see how they came to be and what they have become. It’s blissfully romantic and tragically sad in only the way true young love can be.

Only when they are forced apart, does Chris decide to leave and become the man he feels Catherine deserves, the type of man that Catherine needs.

A promise is made, but with forces working against their love, is then shattered.

Seven hundred and forty nine dollars.

A seemingly small amount turned into millions, but completely worthless.

Catherine’s life was turned upside down.... again. With the weight of the world on her shoulders and her life of privilege gone just like the boy she loved, her existence simply remains for the good of others.

But when Chris is drawn back home, will the boy and girl who fell in love with each other, still be in love the man and woman they are today?

From tennis balls to tree climbing to plastic playgrounds and roses, this story is tragic and sexy and beautiful and an absolute must read!

I would highly recommend this book and any others by this author.

You truly are a Queen of writing CD Reiss.....and I bow to you!
