I am not hurt.
I don’t need a second chance with him, or a life I thought I had.
While he was out forgetting me to become a movie star, I was building a career out of nothing. A career as a paparazzi, but a career.
For a foster kid who bounced around every home in Los Angeles, that wasn’t easy. This camera is all I have.
He’s nothing to me.
Every time I take his picture and sell it, I remind myself that I did it all without him or his approval, his cinnamon smell or his clear green eyes. He lights up the screen like a celestial body, but he’s nothing but a paycheck to me.
He can throw my camera off a balcony, and nothing has to change.
We can stay king and queen of the same city, and different worlds. Except this is Hollywood, and here, anything can happen.
• Author’s Note •
If you know me, you know my Submission and Corruption books. This is different. This is about love and loss, ambition and talent, and our commitments to ourselves and each other. I don’t close the door on the expression of love, but this is not the usual dirty pleasure.
GIVEAWAY & NOTE FROM AUTHOR
I am so happy with the response to Shuttergirl, and I cannot wait to send Michael and Laine out into the world, because who doesn’t swoon over a second chance at love?
It’s a new genre for me, and I’m exploding with excitement, so I’ve dropped some fantastic reasons for readers to get the book right away.
TREAT YOURSELF LIKE A MOVIE STAR!
$500 Spa Gift Card
If you could get an hour, or ten away from the daily grind of paparazzi and interviews (or the job and kids), what would you do?
Maybe you’d bring a friend or two, or maybe you’d just get a manipedi when you wanted one. Because the life of a megastar ain’t for the weak-willed or lazy, and running from paparazzi can really wear down a girl’s nails.
Woodhouse Spas are no joke. They’re all over the country and they’re….sigh. Fabulous. But if you don’t live near one, we can do Burke Williams, Halcyon Days or Red Door.

CD Reiss is a USA Today and Amazon 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 did embed TV story structure in her head well enough for her to take a big risk on a TV series structured erotic series called Songs of Submission. It’s about a kinky billionaire hung up on his ex-wife, an ingenue singer with a wisecracking mouth; art, music and sin in the city of Los Angeles.
Critics have dubbed the books “poetic,” “literary,” and “hauntingly atmospheric,” which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think she’s some sort of braggart who’s too good to give the toilets a once-over every couple of weeks or chop a cord of wood.
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
Intense. Emotional. Passionate. You must read Shuttergirl.
CD Reiss creates the most incredible characters and her plots are always original as well as thoughtful. You’re drawn into her world and blissed out until it’s over. This time around her story, Shuttergirl, has the makings of every good fantasy – the movie star in front of the camera falls in love with the women behind it.
Laine and Michael have been in each other’s lives for years. Their connection has a pulse – you feel it. It beats hard and fast whenever the two are near one another. Their lust and attraction leaves you blushing and craving more. It has your lady bits tingling and turning the page quicker. You will devour this book.
Everyone knows that reality is often tougher and more obstinate than the fantasy. Laine spent years thinking that Michael doesn’t see or notice her and Michael knows that she’s the only person to ever truly have seen him. However, their careers and their lives clash. Findng their version of happily ever after is a journey of epic proportions.
You don’t want to miss out on moment of Shuttergirl. I loved it and I suggest you purchase a copy today!
