It was hard to believe these two were adults with successful business careers. The incessant games and the back and forth, I think I got whiplash. These two didn't seem to know the meaning of love -- they only loved each other when they behaved a certain way. I really liked the first book, Marriage Games but this one, not as much. Normally, I really like stories by CD Reiss and so far this is my least favorite. Much of the nonsense and inner turmoil of this book should have been eliminated and added the meat of this book to the first book. I was so sick of Diana and Adam about half way through, I didn't care whether stayed together or not.
The narration is amazing and it certainly gave more interest to this book than I would have given it otherwise.
The duet is worth one credit, not two.

WARNING!!!! This review is going to be filled with OMG, LOVED, and !!!!
When I finished book one of this duet I liked it a lot but was annoyed by the cliffhanger but that's just a love hate relationship I have with Cliffy's. So when book 2 came out yesterday on audible I grabbed it immediately cause I needed to see where this story was going. And OMG I didn't even sleep until it was over!! This book was amazing!
If you've read the Songs of Submission series then you know just how great this author is but The Marriage Duet literally put her into a whole new range for me. Her writing is excellent, the story was incredible and the sex scenes were SO hot that your ears will almost melt when you listen to it!! Everything about this was really just that good!
This book picks up right where Marriage Games left off (thank god)! Adam is such a complicated character, he is dominant in the absolutely BEST way and he is also cautious and loves his wife completely. Diana thought she knew her husband but little did she know there was a whole other side of him, once she see's Dominant Adam, she falls in love all over again. Together these two are trying to find balance. Always questioning, Are they better off without each other? This book takes us through their 30 day agreement with all the good and bad and brings us out different readers on the other end, or it did for me at least! If I thought I knew what I wanted in this story, I was wrong. I couldn't have even imagined it would end so perfectly how I needed it too!
This is my first Favorited book of 2017! And Adam has just pushed Jonathan off the pedestal I put him on ;)
THIS IS A MUST READ DUET!!!

A little over analytical at times.
Excellent characters, Diane irritated me immensely with her mixed signals, telling Adrian to go away and the her internal dialogue 'fight for me'. I think this is quite common among women though.
I could totally understand the not loving certain parts of a person/Partner.
Very intelligent writing.
This installment was truly exciting up to about 65% then it did settle somewhat but I'm completely satisfied by the story. These characters have been all consuming and a flawed as they were, I was utterly immersed in their relationship, their separation and their games. This duet has been stand out and memorable.
The narration was excellent and I understand now why it wasn't duet style, it still works exceptionally well.
This book gives you plenty to think about. I was thinking about my own trust and honesty issues within my own marriage. Great story. Love these two narrators, easy to listen to and emotionally read.
CD Reiss has given us everything in this book. The answers to Adam and Diana's marital conundrum, an understanding of the BDSM scene and the reasons it can simultaneously attract and repel participants, and the sacrifices required to play this game called life.
I loved the narration of Separation Games, the shift in both narrators' tones as their roles in the game changed along the way. They had amazing material to work with, and truly did it justice.
While some duets are more like linked standalone novels, this was an exquisite story of loss and love and happiness reclaimed through pain that really needed to be told in two parts. I'm so glad I have found this author. Not only has she given me a fabulous story in which to lose myself, but a different way of viewing my own life and that of people around me... in a good way of course!
