How do I even begin to summarize how this book made me feel in words? While my heart keeps breaking, I’m falling deeper and harder in love with Greyson and Caden. Even Damon has found his way inside my heart. Once again, CD Reiss has shown me why this series is a must-read. Her characters are broken and yet their survival and healing feels almost imminent. I keep thinking a solution is going to appear in the next chapter… and then the next… with no ‘cure’ in sight. Yet, I’m still wishing and hop ...more

I’d married a strong man. A rock. A man who didn’t know how to fail.

Say it.

He was the calm eye of a deadly storm, maintaining his composure in the worst of circumstances.

Say it. You’re getting warmer.

I’d married a man who never comes undone. I’d married strong, not weak.


I didn’t marry a crazy person.


Or she did?! In this book, Greyson tried to find what’s wrong with her husband and somehow she knew. Damon/Caden struggled with each other to win Greyson for themselves. They bo
I’m in love with this series so far!!! It is dark and it has BDSM based sex in it; just figured I should include that warning!!! The thing is though, this is a book that will captivate your attention and have you guessing the whole way through! I so badly want to discuss this story with others... it’s that kind of story! If I had of known that, I would have read this with my fellow Buddy Reader!!!

This is a spoiler free 5 Star review....

Book 2 in a 4 part series.....

*Book 1 was the introduction to a huge revelation.

*The Prequel set the stage of how this story started.

Book 2........well it just solidifies the dark, sexual, troubling, volatile and loving relationship of Greyson and Caden and their life as they adjust to being civilians. The secrets and the dysfunctions are front and center and are enveloped in shades of gray. It’s shocking and disturbing at times as well as endearing and h
“If you’re ever in the darkness again...don’t ever doubt that I love you.” - Greyson

I do believe the wound which opened up as my heart was cleaved in two from reading Rough Edge and Cutting Edge has just been made deeper and more jagged with reading this latest book in the series, On the Edge. Along with my wounded heart is a disquieted mind as this master storyteller weaves a heavy and complicated patterned tapestry of events and determinants that result in a strong capable brilliant man’s alle

With the way Rough Edge ended I couldn’t wait to get back with Greyson and Caden.
On The Edge is thrilling, intoxicating and psychological. Holy moly was I captivated by Greyson and Caden’s marriage. I’m not going to give anything away. This story is best enjoyed by going in blind.

Greyson is definitely in a tough predicament when it comes to Caden and his mental state. I had no idea what was going on and again I had my own thoughts on why Caden was behaving the way he was. Again I also

ON THE EDGE is the absolute best name for this second part of the series. I was literally on the edge of my seat with the intensity of the narrative, questioning what the heck was going on and where was I being taken, all in the best way possible.

The psychological aspects blew my mind in terms of the context of what the characters were going through. This second part ramps up the intensity and continues the high emotion and dark sexual activity between the protagonists which is totally necessar
4.5 Stars!

As the timeline continues without interruption in On the Edge, book two of the Rough Edge series, Greyson and Caden are trying to confront the thing that has driven a wedge within Caden and potentially within their marriage. As they begin to recognize signs, they alter their behavior, but extracting certain answers remain elusive.

Mindy Lou's Book Review
Holy crap that ending! This series is all consuming and I'm completely enthralled with what is happening with Caden and Greyson. I have no idea where their story is going and if I'll recover when we get there.

This series is classic CD Reiss. It's dark, gritty and mesmerizing! I don't feel like I can say anything else without spoiling things. Just know you need to start with book 1. By the end of that book you won't need any words from me. ARC provided by author.

"With Damon/ Caden resting on my office couch, I made a few decisions. Then remade them. Then I accepted my inability to change anything outside my own actions and decided between what I could choose and what I couldn’t control. I could decide to stay with my husband no matter what. So, I would do that. I could decide to respect him as a man, not a part of my caseload. So, I would do that. I could decide to accept this problem, whatever it was, while simultaneously helping him get better. Acc ...more

I can’t even cope right now!

I am breathless. Sweating. I have palpitations. In fact the whole book I was on edge. Fuck you Christine. I let you do it to me, time and time again. Why do I do it to myself? I know she will screw with my brain. Why? Why? Why do I do it? I need help.

Caden and Damon! Who would I want? A man who wants to hurt me or a man who wants to protect me.

They fight! They play dirty! They don’t deserve Grey. I hate them, right now. Both of them. One of them. All of them. I don’t

On the Edge by CD Reiss has me literally on the edge once again. This book and series has me obsessed. My heart and emotions were all over the place because Reiss has done her magic. She has me spellbound to her poetic words and flawed characters. This may be a complicated love story, but it is a love story and so if you are like me then I highly recommend you to read this series. Get lost in the proverbial rabbit hole as CD Reiss will

This one I liked better than Book 1, but not as much as the prequel. There were still moments when I got annoyed - like I really don't like Damon all that much. In some ways, tho I can't imagine ever "loving" someone like that, rough emotionless Caden is much more appealing. He's strong, in control, and tho he pushes boundaries and hurts Greyson, he still loves her despite all that. Damon is too manipulative and soft.

And yet, what I like about this book is that once in a while the author remind

Like many of of this author's brilliantly told, psychological stories, I have no idea how to review this particular piece of work because I have no idea what in the name of anything is going on. The above quote I've titled this review with holds especially important to me as a reader. It shows the very tight yet withering tether of the cord connecting this to characte

"You're the beating heart of my life. You're the blood in my veins."

If I thought Rough Edge had a 'rough' ending....On the Edge left me feeling exactly that: on the edge!!! OMGosh, what an ending. My heart was beating, my mind was racing, and my curiosity is piqued!! The way she writes these books, these endings, I am craving so much more and looking forward to starting the next one!! Completely twisted up right now wondering what could possibly be happening next!

Words can't really capture how riveting it is. I'm still reeling. I'm still asking myself - what the Hell did I just read. It's taken me days to be able to sit down and compose some coherent thoughts I'm so affected by this story and the latest developments in On The Edge. Ms. Reiss walks the fine line between deconstruction and dismemberment as she peel back the layers of Caden and Greyson, showing us the depth and richness of these characters, and tells us the story of their marri

I legit don't know what to say in this review. I read this book with my heart in my throat most of the time, my stomach aching and breaths hard to come. I was completely fascinated all the way through.

I don't know how Greyson is continuing to function as a relatively normal person on a day to day basis with everything that is going on. I also don't know how Caden is functioning each day, but for entirely different reasons.

I think there are clues woven into this book that I'm supposed to be cat

Hold onto your bra straps and belt buckles, dear readers, because CD Reiss has only begun to play your eighty-eight keys. 

You will get some answers to the cliffhanger for Rough Edge. You will learn more about Greyson, Caden, and Damon because CD Reiss continues to develop her characters, always moving them forward, always progressing the narrative. You will gain more insight into Greyson and Caden's (and Damon's?) marriage, and you will understand these people better.

WOW, WOW, WOW! This story is intense, erotic, engaging and all-around consuming. The journey between Caden and Greyson intensifies as they try to navigate marriage outside the military. It was obvious from the beginning that their journey would be anything but ordinary. Little did I know their path through this new life would be so psychologically off-balance. I truly didn't know what to expect and now that I'm in this tornado with Caden and Greyson, I wo

I inhaled and just started. I became consumed with emotion. I felt deep sorrow, and pain for Grey as she tried to love, live and heal her husband.

As a woman, wife and true lover of another person I wanted to stroke her and tell her it would be alright. That her love was enough in the end. Even though I hadn't figured o

Caden and Grayson. What do I say?

What can I say that isn't a spoiler?

Not much, as this is twisty. It's dark. It's emotional, it grips you, and it doesn't let go.

I hate spoilers. And for that reason, generally I leave vague reviews for earlier books in a longer series, and a more specific one for the last book, as by that point there are things that are less spoilers and more plot points.

Incredible, tight, tense, edgy, sexy, mind blowing, this series is the best I've read this year. ...more
I was patient after reading book one but- I REALLY THOUGHT THAT THIS WAS THE FINAL INSTALLMENT TO THE EDGE SERIES. Dammit, I usually don't read a series that is still in the process of publishing due to my self-preservation of not putting myself in a state of misery and torment... great.

But I couldn't stop reading- I'm too engrossed with the series. Oh, help me. I've started it and I can't seem to stop wanting, wanting and wanting.

Oh, help me.
