Over the Edge
Total mind trip!!!
Rough Edge follows a married couple, Caden and Greyson. They met while in active duty. There is a little bit of toggling between past and present but for the most part this book is focused on these two living as a married couple and civilians for the first time.
Caden is a heart surgeon and Greyson is starting her own psychiatric practice. She is focusing on helping vets dealing with PTSD. These two are madly in love and can't keep their hands off each other until suddenly Caden starts becoming cold towards Greyson one minute and obsessed with her another. Greyson starts to worry what Caden's behavior means but what she initially thought, isn't what's going on. In fact, as a reader you really don't know what's going on either.
I really don't think I should say any more, not that I could explain what is going on anyway. One thing I can say is it was a total mind trip. I went into this book blind and I highly recommend doing the same. It's an experience this author is known for giving her readers. It's going to have you scrambling to try to figure out what is going on, how far this author is going to take this and who will these people be when it is all said and done.
The author leaves us hanging on a pretty big moment and I need the second book NOW!!! ARC provided by author.
I am so obsessed with Greyson and Caden!
C.D. Reiss has really outdone herself with this book. With this series, really, if this first book is any indication. Greyson and Caden meet while stationed together in Iraq, him a surgeon and her a Psychiatrist. Their connection is intense, more than just sexual, and they fall in love and get married. Caden's time in the Army is up so he returns home to New York to be a heart surgeon, and when Greyson's tour is up, she follows him and opens her own practice.
I feel like whatever I say about this story is going to give too much away, and I can't think of just one or two things to talk about because Christine has layered so much into this, that it is all overlapping and interwoven and deep, so, so deep. The only thing I will say is that something happens to Caden, and he starts to change, away from the man who couldn't keep his hands (and all of his other parts) off Greyson to someone cold and distant and just...not her husband.
As the story progresses, Greyson has a few revelations about herself that she initially doesn't want to admit, all while she is trying to figure out what is going on with Caden. The sex is over the top, hot and passionate and deviant as well? That's all I'm saying about that.
We get dual points of view, as well as some flashback chapters, that give us some more insight as to what has brought this couple to the point they are at right now. I spent a lot of time not understanding what the hell was happening, but that is not a negative thing. It just means that Christine snagged me hook, line and sinker and I couldn't put the book down, trying to figure out why Caden was acting the way he was and marveling at how Greyson was trying to help him, struggling between that fine line of being a Psychiatrist but more so his wife.
When I finished reading my first thought was, "that was one effed up mind trip!" and I'm sure a lot of readers are going to comment that this book really stretches your mind and thought processes about human behaviors. The ending left me dying for book 2, like right now!! Holy sh*t, my heart is still beating fast, reading those last lines.
I'm dangling on the dark, beautiful, jagged ROUGH EDGE!!!
Aaaahhhh..... A new series from C.D. Reiss, The Edge Series, YES YES YES!!!!
Rough Edge (The Edge #1), Greyson and Caden, their undeniable love and marriage grew out of the ashes of the devastation of a War! But now as they face a civilian life where their love and marriage should blossom and flourish their minds/bodies and love/marriage will instead fight the ultimate WAR, a WAR unlike any they've faced before!!!
This is book 1 and right from the beginning my senses were tingling with anticipation while I was in a constant state of mind-numbing-bending-blowing fascination and it never let up to the very last words.... And those last words have left me dangling from a dark, beautiful, jagged ROUGH EDGE!!!!!
