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.

Rough Start, But FANTASTIC BOOK!!

Wow. At first I couldn't get into this book, it jumped all over the place and it was really hard to understand and keep straight. But I'm no quitter!!! I'm so happy that I finished it. This story is about Kadean and Grayson, who are suffering from post-war ptsd/personality splitting disorder. It really tells a fantastic story of the trials these 2 had to go through after serving in a war, and being in a clinical trial for a govt research program for ptsd patients. Plus, the narration from Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell was PHENOMENAL!! If you love Joe Arden (like I do ;)) you will LOVEEE this side of him, he is a darker Joe! Definitely recommend the Audiobook for this one, it really brings it life!!

Brilliant Thriller

GOTE is an insane suspense/thriller/romance. A wild ride that really requires you to be in the right mind frame in order to process what is happening as some of the changes literally happen in the blink of an eye.

Greysen comes from a long line of military members. She planned on honoring her family tradition and making the military a career until she meets Caden. Caden received a direct commission as a doctor and joined the army under privilege, knowing that as soon as his ‘debt’ was paid, he would go back to civilian life as a surgeon.

Now how to tell you about this story, without spoiling is pretty difficult.

Greysen will follow Caden home to New York, both leaving military life behind. He is a cardiac surgeon, she is a psychiatrist. They go about their new routines, their jobs, hanging with friends. The changes are so subtle that Greysen thinks Caden is just readjusting to finally having his wife home. Their marriage is great. They’re happy and their sex life is even better. Sure he’s a little rougher than before, but much to Greysen’s surprise she loves Caden’s domineering demeanor in the bedroom. But it doesn’t take long for Greysen to realize that her husband isn’t quite the same and she begins to feel he may be suffering from PTSD. He is after all a surgeon who, under medication and psychiatric monitoring, remained awake for eight days while tending to those wounded on the front line. Surely no one walks away from the horrors of war unscathed. Right?

Narration is performed in duet. I believe this was Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell's first duet and their performances are EPIC. Maxine has the perfect amount of emotion to draw you in from the beginning that as the story begins to escalate, Maxine is right there maintaining the cadence and emotion needed to convey what Greysen's feeling and going through as she does everything she can to help her husband.

Joe Arden. WOW! Joe is outstanding in delivering the changes his character goes through. And let me tell you, the end of chapter 63 and ALL OF chapter 64 were pearl-clutching moments as Joe delivered his best performance EVER. I literally held my hand to my throat in a holy crap kind of response. I was so enthralled by his acting in this moment, in this scene. When he screams, when he cries out, and when he cries, you feel it. YOU. FEEL. IT. This entire scene with Maxine and Joe will stay with you and will not be easily forgotten. It is now my litmus for all things Emotional Joe.

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.

I didn't know what I was getting into...

Thank God for vague, brilliantly written blurbs- otherwise, I probably wouldn't have read this series. Apparently, I've become complacent in my story selection. But there is NOTHING ordinary about this story.
In true Reiss fashion, it is a masterpiece of language and dynamic characters with true life dialogue only she knows how to create. But this storyline is unlike anything I have EVER read. That's all I'm going to say, because like her blurb, I feel it best to go into this one blind and strapped in for the ride.

Undecided

Can't say if I liked or hated this audiobook. The idea behind the story is not bad, but it might have been dragged out over too many hours. Maybe if it had been more focused and to the point, it could have worked better... I don't know...
The only objective information I can give is that it took me several days to finish this book, and that is very unusual for me.
