What if your husband came home a different man?
What if he was everything you dreamed. Everything you feared. Everything you never knew you desired.
What if he was two men, and you feared one, disdained the other, but loved them both?

CD Reiss breaks every genre expectation with this erotic, psychological thriller about a military couple pushed to extraordinary acts of recklessness and bravery to save each other. By turns compelling, heartbreaking, and shocking, The Edge Series leaves nothing on the table.

Lexxie and I are reading CD Reiss’ The Edge series for the Can You Read a Series in a Month? Challenge. We’re trying to be as vague as possible in our discussions so as not to spoil anything. 😉

On the Edge too me out onto the ledge and left me there. I honestly don’t know how Reiss took it up a notch but she totally did. It was an edge-of-my-seat read, keeping me guessing and turning in circles trying to figure it all out. And I’m still working on it, wifey.

I agree, there was so much going on, and it was impossible to try to figure anything out. I just felt so bad for both Caden and Greyson. LOL I still couldn’t figure things out in the very last book, wifey.


Reiss created quite the psychological twisty story here. Even after some revelations are made, there are still secrets…more questions. How do you feel about what we’ve learned so far about Caden and The Thing?

All those questions! I love Caden, and I’m not sure I like how he’s dealing with The Thing. I can understand him in a way, but that doesn’t mean I have to enjoy it, right? And it’s hard to read about those little memories that might be lurking at the edge of his consciousness, too.


The predicament Greyson is in is not an enviable one. What did you think about some of the choices she made, particularly regarding The Thing?

In one way, I felt like she was a bit selfish – because she definitely got something she wanted out of it. On the other hand, I can totally understand why she didn’t want to analyze everything. She wanted to keep on being Caden’s wife, not his psychiatrist. I do think she might have made some matters a little worse in some ways, though.


The current circumstances for Greyson and Caden’s marriage leave things between them volatile, to say the least. Do you feel that volatility affects their sex life? Or is the shift in the sex life something else?

I think the shift is something else, even if the volatility is definitely part of it. I thought that the way they are both hiding shows in that as well. They are more honest and vulnerable when they have sex – because they really do love each other. But in other situations, they are both hiding because they don’t want to share everything they think and feel.


I’m not sure I ever liked Ronin and I certainly never trusted him. Do you think Greyson was naive in trusting her and Caden’s situation to him? Do you think Ronin has ulterior motives for agreeing to help?

*groans* I don’t like Ronin either! And I definitely think he has ulterior motives. Not sure exactly what those motives are, but I don’t think he’s doing anything out of the goodness of his heart. And I don’t think he has Caden’s best interest in mind, either. I think Greyson was a bit naive, but at the same time, she felt like she was at the end of her rope – with nowhere else to turn. And because she’s known Ronin for so long, she probably trusted him more than she would with any other person.


I like how Reiss has chosen to deal with PTSD. I like that Greyson dedicated herself to helping those with PTSD. Do you think this colors how she deals with Caden? Negatively or positively? Do you worry about Greyson?

I worry a lot about Greyson. She is putting herself after Caden, and after her patients, too. I don’t think she realizes that she needs to take care of herself in order to take care of others. And yes, it definitely colors how she deals with Caden. Both negatively (in some aspects) and positively (in other aspects). See how screwed up this story has made me?


On the Edge left me on edge so it was aptly titled. My anxiety over what comes next is high. And I have a feeling Reiss is only going to raise the anxiety level.

Oh my gosh, yes! She kept us right there on the edge. And it was a tough read, even if I also found it to be amazing!
