About the Author

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestselling author. 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.

Continues the evolution of Caden and how Greyson is coping with the two sides. This series is intense. The sex scenes are crazy hot. The emotional turmoil is off the charts. Well written and plotted out. The books are seamless. Absolutely amazing!!!

“Isn't it interesting that the sex you like comes from the man who appears during the day, and the man you can live with appears at night?” Returning from the point where the first book ends, On the Edge maintains the level of its predecessor, delivers a good narrative, unfolds a little more of that puzzle and raises expectations, introducing new elements, new theories and continuing with the feeling that nothing is what it seems. After the shocking ending of the first book, Greyson is at a crossroads, living in a new and out of control situation. At the same time that she needs to take care of Caden, she finally recognizes that she is also a victim in this situation, and her impotence and inability to ask for help is overwhelming. Damon decides to get out of the dark and take control, but despite physical resemblance and knowledge, his attitudes could not be more different from Caden, or so it seems. And with him present at the moment, we are introduced to this new character, accompanying a little more of his story and this unconventional triangle. But the good, polite and gentle man also has a dark, manipulative side, and this alter ego may have more of Caden than he imagines. But his stay does not last long, as Caden returns. And throughout the whole plot, these two alternate, leaving Greyson and the reader intrigued. The two are complete opposites, but at the same time complete each other, one fills the other's faults. But this game of alternating personalities is getting dangerous, with Caden getting colder and unfeeling, pushing the boundaries to a point where control escapes and with Damon being willing to do anything to hurt Caden, not caring about anything apart from himself, living in an irresponsible and inconsequential way. Greyson is lost between these two men. The two are the same person, her husband, but at the same time they are not, making her not knowing how to help. I sympathized with her anguish, to see what is happening to the man she loves, and not to get an answer to the problem. I think Ronin knows or has something to do with this story, his secret military project is at least suspect. The book introduces new pieces in this mystery, but do not be fooled, when you think you have been able to decipher the mystery, new facts appear and the web is increasing. The end, again ends in a cliffhanger, completely changing the board and moving the pieces, moving them to new scenarios and new conflicts. Again we have to wait who will manifest this time. Once again, it's worth it.

The story continues and so does my awe at the stories Christine is able to weave. She brings these characters to life in a way that leaves me breathless and silent when I’ve read the last word. Her writing is sublime. The characters complex, multi-layered masterpieces. You don’t just read these stories, you absorb them, eat, sleep and breathe them. I’m now obsessed with Caden, Damon, Greyson and Ronin. I’m purposely not saying much about the story because you’re better off going in knowing as little as possible. Just read the whole series and marvel at Christine’s talent.

ON THE EDGE is the absolute best name for this second part of the series. I was literally on the edge of my seat with the intensity of the narrative, questioning what the heck was going on and where was I being taken, all in the best way possible. The psychological aspects blew my mind in terms of the context of what the characters were going through. This second part ramps up the intensity and continues the high emotion and dark sexual activity between the protagonists which is totally necessary within the parameters of this love story and has an important impact on the story arc as a whole. I'm still thinking about it, weighing up the scenarios, trying to think how I can explain my thoughts about the story without spoiling in any way. There is something major about one of the characters, something that is a result of the fall out of their past, something that the reader partly discovers early on in the series, something that is best uncovered as the story unfolds. I'm still trying to fully understand and waiting to discover more information as to the whys which I know the author will reveal by stripping layers in the most delectable way in the remaining two novellas of this series. And the ending of book 2.... I did not see coming but it has definitely attacked my feelings and left me reeling... I can't even coherently explain but I need to know what happens and am waiting with high anticipation and bated breath for book 3!! NOTE: 'On the Edge,' marks the second part of THE EDGE series which comprises of four novella length books and a prequel that should be read anytime before book 3 Advance copy provided / reviewed voluntarily

I had to start this book the minute I finished Rough Edge because I can’t get enough of the psychological twists and turns that have consumed Greyson and Caden since the minute they laid eyes on each other in a surgical unit in Iraq. I have always been intrigued by the psychology of the human mind and majored in it in college so having a psychologist as a main character adds to the validity of the challenges these two characters will face as their journey continues. I’m purposely not giving away too many particulars about this book so as to avoid spoiling the experience for other reads. Just let me say that I have never had a more compelling reading experience and I can’t believe the next book is a month away from release. You. Must. Read. This. Series.

Ahhh, what the heck is going to happen now?! I'm really liking the whole buildup, and I can't decide who I want more, Caden or Damon. I kind of feel bad for Greyson. I'd feel wrecked if I was her.

"Careful. It hurts. when you open them, it hurts!!" Now all bets are off ! We've officially entered into the St.John war zone. It's a minefield of emotions you navigate where combative personalities are hell bent on revenge. Men and their egos!! They'd actually chop their nose to spite the face !! **smdh** The story is becoming dangerous as it progresses. I read the entire book with bated breath and a sense of impending doom. CD is attempting to chart the complex terrain of human mind and add to that PTSD + childhood trauma, and you have an unexploded bomb ticking in the pages. "Would you rather be at the top of the Washington Monument with no way down or at the bottom of a narrow hundred-foot hole with no way up?" Anyway you cut it, you're bound to loose a limb or piece of your sanity. Don't know which is worse. In this continuing battle of Damon/Caden war, the personalities clash and how! Sadly the victim is Greyson. The toll it's taking on her body & heart is equivalent to the pockmarks on her marriage. The things,(at this point I'm referring to both, because they're becoming detatched and ruthless) are dividing the hours of the day and portioning Grey's sentiments “Isn’t it interesting that the sex you like comes from the man who appears during the day, and the man you can live with appears at night?”  It could've been really confusing in a lesser author's hands but CD manages to keep her threads clean and unjumbled. The tragic figure of Caden drew most sympathy. He's fighting the shadow of himself and it gets really frustrating and unravelling for him to find the missing logs. What a fantastic scenario CD builds, what amazing imagination(it'd be a fantasy had it not been a truth), alas PTSD is no joke. "I’d spent hours trying to understand what consciousness was and when mine began. I’d had to do it without a single human reference. I had no way of knowing if I was my own person or another man’s setback. In moments like this, when I had to define the indefinable, I was the loneliest man on the planet." "He and Damon weren’t communicating the nitty-gritty.  Now I had to say everything twice.  I’d probably have to describe what I wanted twice, argue twice, explain twice." Is it the norm, is this how DID works? Since there's no set pattern or formula to it and I have zero knowledge or expertise, I'm going to solely rely on CD's observations and interpretations. Which bring me to the handling of the story. I was bowled over simply by the hazardous topic, compound it with the treatment, research & narration. I'm gone ! Totally genuflecting now on the other side of the landmass CD . All hail !! I read some scenes , some lines TWICE, it was so layered, I didn't wanna miss anything  In conclusion, go read this psychological revelation thriller. I insert "revelation" because I'm a novice, ignorant and apprenticed in this area. It's scary but really enlightening, changed my perspective and opened my eyes to a dreadful epidemic which is spreading unnoticed with alarming speed. If we do continue, and with present times(read "regime") this could end up with a body count more than all the wars combined!!

This book...this series...holy hell everything about it is absolutely intoxicating! The continuation of Greyson and Caden's story had me in a constant state of intrigue and panty melting arousal once again. This complex, brilliant plot has me questioning everything. Has tested every boundary I thought I had and left me starved for more! Keeping my review spoiler free is a legit struggle at this point. So much has been revealed about these magnificent characters, their backgrounds and relationship. Every aspect so thoroughly and intelligently articulated. I gasped in surprise. Panted while turned on. Rubbed my chin in contemplation. CD Reiss is so freakin' talented I had to highlight words and look up the meaning while reading. Honestly that just doesn't happen. Not because I am uber smart. No, it was because she chooses these amazing, uncommon words and I am addicted. I love this. Every word in every paragraph of this utterly intense, sizzling series! Gah bring on book 3 and 4. I need my next fix. I am consumed with wonder. Must know how this story plays out.

Even after finishing the last page of On The Edge, the continuation of Greyson and Caden’s story, the analytical nerd in me is still quite confounded with the dysfunctional and disturbing events that played out on the pages of the second book in The Edge series, and while I’m left feeling quite bereft due to the lack of answers provided, extending my already long list of questions, I can’t help but be in awe of the psychological warfare that CD Reiss has created for her characters and her readers to experience, and let me tell you, we all are lost in the mind-bending chaos that has become a part of Greyson and Caden’s lives. What’s most interesting to me is the fact that amidst the twisted and toxic environment that the couple seems to live in, the sexual side of Greyson and Caden’s life is hotter and bolder than it’s ever been, allowing Greyson to unleash her sexual desires on an incredibly willing partner to the point that I can’t believe the heat doesn’t resonate from the pages of their story. Sometimes I feel like a depraved lunatic because I’m obsessed with this couple, with understanding who they are and how they, especially Greyson, deal with the clusterfuck that has become their lives; I find myself meticulously analyzing the words that they say as well as the actions they take in order to understand any granules of truth that can be found, but I have NOTHING! Nothing that, I believe, leads me in the right direction because I seem to be going around in circles, acquiring little insight into how to find the path that Reiss is leading her characters as well as her readers. But because Reiss crafted Greyson and Caden’s story with multiple and complex layers as well as a psychological aspect that constantly manipulates the plot line as well as the mental state of its characters, which makes it almost impossible to understand the causes or the repercussions of Caden’s psyche and what and who Greyson must endure as she tries to stand by the man who needs her to be his safe place. The title of book three seems to me extremely telling of where Reiss is taking her highly dysfunctional but incredibly intriguing couple…Broken Edge has several implications for Caden and Greyson and while I know I’m probably not prepared for just how fractured these two will be, I’d willingly endure it in order to unearth several of the questions that threaten to drive me batty until I know their answers. 4.5 Poison Apples

"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." Greyson and Caden are a love bigger than the sky.... the kind of love that is all consuming, so much so, that if one of them were broken apart that love would remain stronger than ever, maybe different for each broken part but no less consuming! And the other would do whatever it takes.... risk breaking their own self and go to the farthest edge to save the other, to save their all consuming love!! Their love, their war, it all keeps escalating with twists and turns between sanity and madness until it feels like that edge their on is at risk of crumbling to devastation or maybe they'll fall in to perfect completion??? I feel like I'm trying to figure out a thrilling puzzle, one where I have the "EDGE" pieces and know when it's complete it's going to be a masterpiece (the kind of puzzle you want to frame and keep forever) but those beautifully flawed middle pieces are yet to be found or revealed..... Yeah my mind is completely "on the edge" and I'm loving every second of it!!!!

Holy Smokes!!! This series is one of the most intense series I have ever read!! boy, oh boy, does his book have the right title!! I was on the edge the entire time I was reading this installment in Greyson and Caden's journey. OMG!! CD Reiss blew me away with this one. I did not expect any of the events that occurred in this one. Wow!! I knew Greyson and Caden were on a serious journey in trying to overcome the challenges being presented to them in their marriage, but this challenge is above and beyond. What do you do when the challenge comes from within? When the challenge is a struggle that the one you love is trying to battle from within, but continues to pull you into the struggle, because you are the one thing in that person's world that helps to ground the person, but also causes the person some of the deepest and darkest struggles? This is the challenge that Greyson and Caden face. It is a real fight that they are engaged in to try to save their marriage, as well as each other. On the Edge is absolutely brilliant. CD Reiss has done her research for this one. This chapter in the series will leave you stunned and wanting even more than Rough Edge did. If you have not started this series, please do. Wow!! The ride that I am on with Greyson and Caden is not one that I want to get off. I have been ensnared in their web of complication and love since I started reading Rough Edge and On the Edge only has me even more entrapped.

Chill you to the bone type of dark romance- and I loved every second of it! For a few seconds after I finished On the Edge, I thought I couldn't breathe. Then I couldn't figure out what the heck I had just read. After that I was left spouting profanities all over the place. Finally, my mind came to an acceptance that Ms. Reiss is a master of words, and that I am completely addicted to this series. You definitely need to start with book 1 - Rough Edge first, as this picks up right after. On the Edge is dark, it's twisted, yet it still makes you root for Caden and Greyson, all while you are guessing what's going to happen next, and then not guessing anywhere close to what is happening. I need the next book like I need my next breath. Please join me on this rollercoaster of emotions, I need more to suffer with me!

I'm completely obsessed with Caden and Greyson! I legit don't know what to say in this review. I read this book with my heart in my throat most of the time, my stomach aching and breaths hard to come. I was completely fascinated all the way through. I don't know how Greyson is continuing to function as a relatively normal person on a day to day basis with everything that is going on. I also don't know how Caden is functioning each day, but for entirely different reasons. I think there are clues woven into this book that I'm supposed to be catching on to, but heck if I know what they are. I know I highlighted the crap out of it, though. I've quickly become obsessed with Greyson and Caden. I'm dying for more backstory on both of them. Christine throws a curveball at the end of this book, so it will be very interesting to see where this story goes next. If the title of book 3 is any indication as to what is coming, I think the ride is going to get even bumpier!

On The Edge is the second installment of author C.D. Reiss’ The Edge series. This delicious, dark tale explores the impact of mental health and PTSD on a couple’s marriage. The complex and layered characters have me hooked on this series. On The Edge is a typical mid-series installment in that it offers more clarification of the conflict and continues to increase the story tension without significant plot progression. However, in every other way, there is nothing typical about this story from C.D. Reiss! Multiple narrators tell the story. Interestingly, two of the narrators are two personalities of one character who is experiencing mental health issues. The stress of this situation on Greyson, the “third” narrator, is palpable. Juggling being supportive spouse and trying to analyze her husband’s situation can’t be easy. Add the further stress of trying to establish oneself in a post-military career might be the recipe for disaster. Will fighting for her husband’s mental health break her? Was the trigger war or childhood trauma? Is Ronin really trying to be helpful? Will Caden and Greyson’s new marriage survive? Answers to these questions are sure to come as the series progresses, meanwhile, we readers anxiously await the answers, our pulse is elevated and we are in need of a hunky doctor’s care.

You are an evil, evil woman CD Reiss! Holy crap that ending! I NEED MORE. This series is all consuming and I'm completely enthralled with what is happening with Caden and Greyson. I have no idea where their story is going and if I'll recover when we get there. This series is classic CD Reiss. It's dark, gritty and mesmerizing! I don't feel like I can say anything else without spoiling things. Just know you need to start with book 1. By the end of that book you won't need any words from me. Read it!
