Summary

"Girl on the Edge is a searing breakthrough of a book. Utterly original and completely enthralling, it broke my heart and all the rules at the same time." (Laurelin Paige, New York Times best-selling author)

He's her husband, but he's not the man she married.

Caden and Greysen come home from deployment to build a life together. Everything is perfect, until Caden starts changing into a different man - one with a savage edge that's as dangerous as it is seductive.

Who is her husband?

What has he become?

And why?

With time running out and forces bigger than their marriage working against them, Greysen needs to put together the pieces before Caden takes it all too far....

Previously released in serial format starting with Rough Edge.

What a ride...

When this book was 3 (or 4?) separate books, it was rated quite high. I bought this book based on those reviews. I'm glad I did! The story was so intense and kept me on the edge of my (car) seat. I have a long commute but when listening to this book, I found I was looking forward to bad traffic. This excellent story was very well researched.

Interesting story

The story is more unconventional and is more original in many ways. In the beginning I was wondering how some of the violence fit in, but as the story unfolded it did serve a larger purpose. Joe Arden's performance was Amazing. There are several parts where you just FEEL. He wasn't reading the book to you... he was in it. I'm not normally a fan of Maxine Mitchell but I felt that this story really fit her style and where I usually find her style distracting, in this book it helped set the tone of the story.

Military romance

They met in the military, married during the war, and returned home together. However, when her husband returned he was a changed man. A darkness had rooted deep inside of him. Something he brought back from Fallujah, maybe? Had it been there all along? All Greysen knew was she loved her husband and was willing to make whatever sacrifices necessary to bring back the man she married.
He jumped into the military after 911 while she was born into a military family. He was a military surgeon while she was a military therapist. Together they helped soldiers rebuild themselves after the war tore them apart.

Overall:
A marriage built on forgiveness and unconditional love were the only two things glueing them together. Built around a military setting Caden and Greysen invested both of there time on active duty and civilian life. They had an intense sexual chemistry. When Ms. Reiss broached the topic of sex she certainly edged the darkness with some kink.
I recommend investing in the entire series referred to as Girl on the Edge. It includes all four books: On the Edge, Broken Edge, Over the Edge and Rough Edge. This box set is smokin’ hot.
I’ve come to expect the graphically sexual nature of CD Reiss’s books. This one didn’t disappoint with its explicitly sexual and erotic nature. It was tasteful.
The many layers built around the military, the sex, and the Blackwater assignment gave this story that dark edge. It most definitely is a seductive book. Reading they way these two characters grew was impressive. It was
intense, raw and honest.
CD Reiss wrote a smart believable story. There was a healthy balance between the sex and the military life. While this has a military theme the concept went in a different direction taking with it the after affects of serving in a brutal and violent war.

Narrators:
Joe Arden performed the voice of Caden. Maxine Mitchell performed the voice of Greysen. Together they gave an exceptional Duet performance. This was an abridged audiobook. I wish this had been an unabridged copy. Trying to follow along when scenes were omitted and out of place was frustrating. I love following along with my ebook it really brings the story and the characters to life.
Both narrators read the scenes and words with the perfect pitch, sound, and tone. I believed in both performances. They both enhanced my audiobook experience.
Joe Arden is a well known male audiobook performer. He’s known for his romance and erotic performances. He’s been described as sensual, sexy, and hot. He gave a powerful and intense performance. I felt the emotional turmoil in Caden’s characters voice. The tone and pitch was ideal for each situation. He really understood Caden’s character and the depth of his pain.

Maxine Mitchell is a well known female audiobook performer. This is not the first nor the last audiobook where they perform together. It seems to be quite common for narrators to team up together performing as a duet or duel performance in romance books. She performed Greyson’s scenes with grace, intelligence, and sensuality.
This ones a long one it’s 18 hours. I listened at 1.9x the speed. The sound quality was crystal clear.

Strange

I appreciate the abilities of CD Reiss, but this book was odd for me. I purchased thinking it was a romance novel and it isn't. It's more like a psychological military mystery with some sex scenes. The story seemed drawn out a bit much and I struggled to finish this one. The narration actually kept me listening...Great Job !

I Love “Girl on the Edge”

CD Reiss did it again. This author is so good at holding you captive until the very end. I wait for a new book. Re read or listen to the prior books with great joy. Girl in the Edge, kept right there on the edge all the way through. Makes you believe in LOVE.

Narration made the story

This book had some very interesting twists and turns but might have been just a little too long. It was slow at the end. Joe Arden gave the most amazing performance during a very suspenseful part. Definitely made the book for me.

Top performance, great story!

Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell are incredible, the different voices for the different personalities are perfect, every sentiment is clear and sometimes devastating.
The story is captivating and the 18 hours fly!
Definitely worth the credit!

Split personalities

I knew this book would be good. I love CD Reiss’s books. I didn’t expect as much immersions into split personalities. Military and trauma. I’d also look for the next story.

A long, flat book.

Despite the reviews I dove into this book because, duh, CD Reiss. Unfortunately I found this book to be repetitive, monotonous and lackluster. I asked myself often, while listening, if I would make it through all the books had I stumbled upon this series in it's original format. It's hard to say. With cliffhangers you are starved for the answer. With this long book format it just felt like the cliffhangers were the short blips on the screen keeping this book alive. All the words in between just ran together. The jumping back and forth between time periods was annoying but eventually I just stopped caring, just wanting to get through the book to the end. I never thought of dumping the book because of the faith I have in CD Reiss but even the end was meh. I loved the Submission Series and the Marriage Games series. This was not like those. Can't win them all...
