ShutterGirl Book Trailer:

ONE movie star on the cusp of greatness
ONE broken girl who touched him
TEN years to forget her
A MILLION stories in Hollywood

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.


I stroked his hair, waist deep in peace, all worry gone for the moment, and floating in no more than an ocean of gratitude. I must have been more vulnerable than I realized, or he’d reopened some wound with his kindness, because though my sweet reverie stayed, as the minutes passed, a layer of need fitted itself on top of it.
I needed to tell him, if not the details, the outlines of who I was.
“I want you to know,” I whispered, starting somewhere small, then everything I didn’t want to say spilled out. “I have stuff. I’ve never been to jail, but you know, it’s stuff, and it’s ugly, and it scares me. Because, I mean, you’re so perfect, and I’m… I’m just a mess. I’m not whole. I’m a bunch of pieces of a person I cobbled together.” My eyes got wet when I thought of the comparisons between us and that picture in my silverware drawer. “So if you have to move on when you realize that, I’ll understand. You have an image, and if anyone understands protecting a career, it’s me. I mean, I’ll be mad, don’t get that wrong, but also.” I swallowed and blinked, shifting my head so he wouldn’t feel the tear on his forehead. “I won’t blame you.”
I waited for an answer. Anything. A change in position or a word on any subject. The weather. Sports. Something. But all he did was breathe.
I smiled so wide, tears fell into my mouth. He was sleeping.

My Review 

Imagine being the reject. The one no one wanted. Lost in the shadows of life. What would you do? What would you do if you lived in Los Angeles? Who would you become?

Lanie grew up in the foster care system. She learned early on that good things would not be handed to her on a silver platter.....not like Michael. The son of Hollywood icons, he had life in the palm of his hands. Or did he?

Lanie used her knowledge of the city and the rich and famous to become famous in her own right. As a paparazzi photographer. She knew the right shots. She knew the right angles. She knew just where to catch the photo to get her payday. 

A chance second encounter throws Lanie and Michael together. And while she knows it will end badly for her (and her career) she cannot help but stay away from him. 

Michael knows that Lanie doesn't fit into his world, but he will not let her get away again........

Lanie is such a tough chick....but under it all she is vulnerable and looking for the love she never really felt she had growing up. I loved her feisty attitude and the softness she showed Michael. Michael is just as swoon worthy! Hot and sweet. I love that combination. Once he set his eyes on Lanie, she was it. He was focused just on her. But was her her camera the only thing focusing on him? Both Lanie and Michael have a lot to loose if they make the wrong choices. The problem is the right choice might be for them to not be together. They both need to re-evaluate their lives and the paths that they are on to be happy.

This was an excellent stand alone novel by CD Reiss. I have read several of her other books and while this one had a different feel to it....it was still all HER. Sexy, smart and seductive! I would totally recommend this book to anyone who loves a strong heroine and a Hollywood heartthrob. 


About the Author 
CD Reiss

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.

        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.
$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?
        Get a foot rub/slash/pedicure? A massage? Maybe something called a

Sleep Treatment that right now sounds better than sex?
        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-


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.

        HOW TO ENTER

        Take the fun SHUTTERGIRL READER QUIZ!

        The link to the quiz is in the back of the book, and yes, that’s the ONLY
