From NY Times Bestselling author, CD Reiss.
“In Iraq, I promised you a bed of rose petals.” He grabbed my hand under the table, tightening his grip as if he were falling from a precipice and our connection was the only thing saving him from certain death.
“They were beautiful.”
“You smell like apples. Roses were wrong.” There was nothing soft about his tone, but his quiet words were for me alone. “I want everything to be right for you.”
“Caden, look at me.”
I caught his gaze and held it. He was confident. Arrogant. Sure he had a place in the world. And under that was the man who needed me to be that place.
“If I could…” He smiled and shook his head at a silly thought he wanted to dismiss but couldn’t—a contradiction in keeping with the whole man I married. “If I could write my love in the sky, it wouldn’t be big enough. I’d run out of room. I’d fall out of the air trying to say it all.”
He was saying it all.
And he was falling out of the sky to do it.

Blew me away!
You are an evil, evil woman CD Reiss! Holy crap that ending! I NEED MORE. 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. Read it!
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 catching on to, but heck if I know what they are. I know I highlighted the crap out of it, though. I've quickly become obsessed with Greyson and Caden. I'm dying for more backstory on both of them. Christine throws a curveball at the end of this book, so it will be very interesting to see where this story goes next.
If the title of book 3 is any indication as to what is coming, I think the ride is going to get even bumpier!
Dark Secrets & Layered Characters
On The Edge is the second installment of author C.D. Reiss’ The Edge series. This delicious, dark tale explores the impact of mental health and PTSD on a couple’s marriage. The complex and layered characters have me hooked on this series.
On The Edge is a typical mid-series installment in that it offers more clarification of the conflict and continues to increase the story tension without significant plot progression. However, in every other way, there is nothing typical about this story from C.D. Reiss!
Multiple narrators tell the story. Interestingly, two of the narrators are two personalities of one character who is experiencing mental health issues. The stress of this situation on Greyson, the “third” narrator, is palpable. Juggling being supportive spouse and trying to analyze her husband’s situation can’t be easy. Add the further stress of trying to establish oneself in a post-military career might be the recipe for disaster.
Will fighting for her husband’s mental health break her? Was the trigger war or childhood trauma? Is Ronin really trying to be helpful? Will Caden and Greyson’s new marriage survive? Answers to these questions are sure to come as the series progresses, meanwhile, we readers anxiously await the answers, our pulse is elevated and we are in need of a hunky doctor’s care.
