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


“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!


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.

“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!

About the Author: 

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn't pick up she's at the well hauling buckets. Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels. She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood. If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
