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.
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.
Money was never the barrier, until now.
White Knight is a standalone in the same world as King of Code, with its own beginning, middle, and end. You don't need to read anything else to read White Knight.
I know that some of my followers are going to say I'm broken. This is the second book in a series where I, the Series Referee, say, "Nah, go ahead. This can be standalone."
But it's true.
I find that if the writer has the ability to provide just enough backstory to any re-occuring characters for a new reader to not get lost, I'll bow to recommendation for standalone. However, for this series, although interconnected, CD Reiss makes a mark in each subgenre that is a delight to the fan. As everyone is well aware, I am a huge sucker for second chance. So I'm going in that this is trope I'm going to love and can't wait to see the characters journey.
And Catherine & Chris have such a unique and touching second chance that you don't want to miss. CD delivers a twist on Poor boy/Rich girl theme. Does money truly mean something to the characters? Was it status that kept these young lovers apart? Is now really the right time? Or did they miss their chance? Can they have a true HEA just because their young hearts once beat for one another? She draws on all these questions with the characters. Because truly, age and experience can mold where you want to be and how you want to live your life. It's not easy questions to ponder. The reader isn't drug over the angst coals getting the answers. The reader is easily able to connect with the concerns and truly understand the actions of compromise. Life is never easy to your HEA but you can't help but want these star crossed lovers to find a way.
Just take my word for it: Read the others? - pick up this book. Hesitant in picking up the others but would love a unique spin on second chance?- do not hesitate to one click.

About the AuthorCD Reiss is a New York Times 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 give her a big enough ego to write novels. She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood. If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
