Blog Tour & Review ~ On the Edge (The Edge #2) by CD Reiss

ONTHE EDGE BT BANNER.jpg

“This series grips you by the throat and refuses to let go—and you’ll be begging for more the entire time.” — Sierra Simone, USA Today Bestselling Author


On the Edge, the next intense installment in The Edge Series from New York Times bestselling author CD Reiss, is available now!

On-the-edge-two-final 

Book Description:

“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.

Every day.

And he was falling out of the sky to do it.

Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna ~ 4.5 stars
***ARC received for an honest review***

“The battle was won, but the war was just beginning.”


On the Edge is a very apt title for this book as CD Reiss certainly keeps you on it for the entirety of this book. After the first book I was already ravenous for more and after reading this gem that curiosity has only multiplied ten-fold. What a tangled web CD Reiss weaves and while a few of my questions have been answered with this one, for every one answered a few more come to the surface. My head is awash with theories, with my own plot lines as I try and get into the mind of a maestro and I’m failing miserably. This is one of my favourite series by CD Reiss and no matter what comes next, I’m sure it will remain.

The intensity that CD Reiss captures between Caden and Greyson is seriously off the charts, their connection unquestionable despite everything that life is currently throwing at them. Many a lesser person would have thrown in the towel, but these two were made for one and other and despite the mountains that these two are currently climbing and still must climb, their love never wavers. The strength that Greyson shows within these pages is mind boggling and I am in awe at just how strong she is. The Army has definitely given her this strength and determination and Caden needs it all.


“You’re the beating heart of my life. You’re the blood in my veins.”


My heart goes out to Caden in this book as his mental struggles only intensify. CD Reiss is peeling the proverbial onion with this character and with each layer she reveals my empathy and sympathy for Caden only increases. I can’t even imagine being in his shoes and as my mind whirls a mile minute trying to find a way out of this untenable situation, I find myself at a loss, because the mind is its own entity.  Caden is mentally, slowly falling apart, while his character is stoic in feeling he has it under control but that is far from the truth. For a man that was seemingly unflappable, could cope in high stress situations, giving everything his all, to see him basically capitulate is heartbreakingly hard.

Never once have I questioned these two as a couple, CD Reiss bleeds their love from every page, every paragraph and every heart-breaking and heart-soothing piece of dialogue. This book is intense, I had goose bumps, I had tears, I had smiles and laughter. I felt it all. All sides. The intensely passionate, hard, fast and skirting the lines of dark, to the romantic, soft, passionate and all-compassing caring lover. Greyson was getting the best of both worlds, but there can only be one winner.


“I’ve lost everything…My family. My house. My sanity. I’m drawing a line around us, and we’re staying inside it. Outside the wire is madness.”



I cannot wait for Broken Edge, CD Reiss is a master story-teller, a master manipulator, articulate, eloquent and inherently filthy. This book has something for everyone and as I said before, unputdownable. From first to last page I was hooked, on the edge, eagerly devouring every word like it was my last. Bring on the next one, I need it NOW!

Book Description:

Tristan Lopez is loyal to his brothers. He doesn’t really have a choice, born into a gang that has a chokehold on every kid that roams its streets. He gave his life to them willingly, knowing if he did then one day this kingdom, led by boys drunk with power and ruled by fear, would all be his.

He was loyal through it all. Loyal when prison took his dad away. Loyal when his face was touched by the cold metal of the rival gang’s gun. Loyal even though his mom begged him to run the moment she returned home from rehab.

He thought about becoming someone else. It was hard not to crave the life of a regular 17-year-old. It’s the only reason he stayed in school—to pretend. But he always fell back in line.

Loyal.

Riley Rojas didn’t belong in Tristan’s real world. She should have only been part of the fantasy, one of the many faces he got to pretend with amidst rows of metal chairs and desks and whiteboards with assignments. But there she was, moving boxes from the back of an old pick-up into a house Tristan had shot up on a dare with his friends only a few months before.

Tall enough to look him in the eyes and strong enough to fill his shadow, Riley took up space on his streets, her loud mouth fearless in the face of the gang leaders who terrified everyone else. She pushed Tristan around on the hard court, and she balled better than his friends—better than him

sometimes. She challenged him. She needed him. He liked it. And when her pale blue eyes stared into his, he quit wanting to pretend.

He couldn’t ask her to leave because she’d only dig her heels in deeper. He couldn’t ask because he didn’t want her to go. She was blurring his lines. She was testing his loyalty.

He was falling in love.

And it was going to tear him apart.

Mister Tonight by Kendall Ryan

Book Description:

From New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan comes a standalone romance about a swoony single dad and the new neighbor he falls for.

Last night was the most embarrassing night of my life.

I was that girl.

You know, the highly intoxicated chick celebrating her thirtieth birthday with her two best friends—who are happily married. And the more I drank, the more I wanted to do something reckless to celebrate.

By reckless, I mean the sexy and alluring man dressed in a business suit standing near the bar. You know his type—tall, dark, handsome. I was sure he was out of my league, but I’d had just enough alcohol that things like that no longer seemed to matter. I’m not fat, mind you, but you can tell I like french fries, so there’s that.

He took me home, and I enjoyed the hottest birthday sex of my life. Well, until it came to a screeching and rather unwelcome halt.

There’s nothing quite like being interrupted mid-ride with a little voice asking, “What are you doing to my daddy?”

Just kill me now . . . or so I thought.

Come to find out, the man I rode like a bull at the rodeo is my new landlord.

Dr. Faith Cooper is flummoxed by irrefutable proof that not only do vampires exist . . . they're hot blooded, able to walk in sunlight, and shockingly sexy. Faith has always depended on science, but the restlessness she feels around this predatory male defies reason. Especially when it grows into a hunger only he can satisfy--that is if they can survive the evil hunting them both.

SHE'S THE SWEET SHY INTERN.
THEY'RE ABOUT TO WRECK EACH OTHER CRAZY.

My name is Sydney Lucas. I am smart, deathly shy, and one-hundred percent determined to make my own way in the world. Which is why I jumped at the chance to intern for Mr. Nick Brooks despite his reputation. After ten failed interviews at other companies, he was the only one offering. Plus, everyone says he knows his stuff and surely a man as stunningly handsome as him can't be "the devil incarnate," right? Wrong.

Craving Mr Kinky (Mr Wrong Series #4) by AM Madden & Joanne Schwehm

Book Description:

Here’s a tip: When you least expect it, expect it.

I’d been known to have my share of beautiful women. Usually, I met them in a bar, through a mutual acquaintance, or even when photographing them. Imagine my surprise when a gorgeous blonde drove her car into mine on the way to a party. 

No more than a minute after our run-in, a string of colorful words flew from her mouth in rapid fire. Unexplainably, the angrier she became the harder I got. All sorts of scenarios played in my head of how I could get her to shut up. I was all for feisty women, but I preferred leaving that for the bedroom—not on the streets of New York. 

When I learned she was a school teacher, that worsened my disposition. What man didn’t have a dirty teacher fantasy at one point in his life? I decided it was my turn to teach her a thing or two… or so I thought. Little did I know, Miss Prim-and-Proper would turn the tables on me.

She called me Mr. Kinky, and that was fine with me.

Lesson learned: Desire always trumps logic.

Everything I Never Wanted by K Street

Book Description:

A single dad, contemporary romance standalone. 

This wasn’t supposed to be my life. 

One phone call was all it took to bring me back to the small town I had grown up in. Everything had changed, and staying away was no longer an option. 

Four and a half years later, I was a widowed single father still here, still trying to pick up the pieces. We were doing just fine on our own, my little girl and me.

At least, we were until Camryn Parker stumbled into our lives. The woman was like a tornado after a hurricane; she was the storm I never saw approaching. Behind her beauty and sarcastic wit, she was just as broken as I pretended not to be. As hard as I tried to resist, it was impossible not to fall in love with her.

In the end, it took nearly losing it all for me to realize everything I never wanted was exactly what I needed.
