Publisher's Summary

From the author of the Audie Award-winning and the New York Times best-selling Marriage Games comes a deeply intense new series.   

Everything is going to be perfect. Greyson comes home from deployment to live the life she and her husband Caden dreamed of. He has a surgical residency, and she has a psychiatric practice in the basement of their Manhattan brownstone.   

Caden loves his wife more than he can measure. But he starts hearing whispers. Someone else loves her. Someone else wants her. There's someone else, and though whoever's behind the whispers will move mountains to have her, Caden will move heaven and earth to keep her.   

Greyson will never break her vows, even as their marriage snaps apart one piece at a time; even as the line between reverie and reality blurs; even as Caden demands control, and Greyson cedes it. She will never, ever turn her back on him. When their marriage crumbles, her resolve shakes and love becomes the one thing holding them together.

There aren't enough stars to show my love for this

CD Reiss is my author crush. Her brilliant storytelling of these two exceptional, imperfect people and how they began is captivating. The sex is hot as hell 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 but the love is thermonuclear. Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell 's duet narration is seamless and fluid. 🎧 I'm hooked and I need more.

Could not stop listening...

Intrigue with steam...I know I will finish this series, I think it's a 4 book listen, I stayed well up into the night listening. CD Reiss can write some sexy, steamy scenes. I can feel the love and passion and commitment her couples have for each other just listening to their stories. There are many questions left unanswered after Book 1 so on I go!

Cliffhanger

This was a great story but I really hate cliffhangers. The narrators were great! Not going to get sucked into buying the rest.

wow what an intense read!

4.5 stars

WTF did I just read?! OMG what a twisted, insane, dark and weird this story was. But it seems like it spoke to my crazy self and I really enjoyed it. I’m sure this will not be everyone’s cup of tea. I was on the edge of hating it one minute and loving it the other, but boy, the idea was so original and kept me intrigued the whole time. I listened to the audio of this book and the narration is amazing – duet narration by Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell and they absolutely nailed every emotion and transferred the intensity of this story.

I jumped into this absolutely blind. I only heard it was a mindf*ck and boy, it was that and so much more. The idea behind is really unconventional and even though it was a bit twisted I loved that couple and the way they fought to save their marriage. Some parts were a bit disturbing even though I can’t say I’m a prude. It definitely went beyond my comfort zone in some places, but I still feel the story is interesting and has potential. That ending OMFG. My jaw hit the floor. Now I want to know WTF happened and my curiosity is going wild. The theories running through my head are countless and I’m eager to know more.

This is not your typical romance, although it’s about a couple that loves each other fiercely. It’s definitely a mindf*ck and will make your head spin and keep you on the edge the whole time. Go for it with an open mind and just let yourself be swallowed by this twisted, unconventional story

Amazing

This is an amazing start to the series! So different than ANYTHING I have listened to before. If you are getting tired of the same types of romance stories then you really need to try this one. Hot, sexy, intense, interesting and suspensful.

Twisted, Intense, Hot, Rough, On the edge...

Definitely not your typical romance... in fact, I don't think I have come across Caden's condition before. Very unique PTSD. Everything in this book is heightened and intense. War scenes. The book does tend to jump fast from situation to situation, more elaboration would have been appreciated. It does take a while getting into it because it lacks the romance in the beginning. You start with the married couple. BUT... you get all that in the prequel which is better listened to later.

The narration is one of the best ever. The female voice is done by Maxine and male voices by Joe. Often in books, both authors play both parts. Never understood that. Anyhow, it's done perfectly in this book. Joe Arden plays Caden and Ronin's voice.

Love the intensity between the two characters and their commitment to one another. Also, the prequel Cutting Edge at the end is the icing on the cake. So beautifully written. Breathless. Makes you wanting the next book!! Can't wait.

Off to a great start!

Be prepared to get sucked in to Caden & Grayson's world from the first page on. There is so much going on and all of the details building their back story are slowly revealed so you become even more invested. I am starting Book 2 immediately! This tale is definitely twisted and intensely 🔥 HOT! I read a lot and I'm usually pretty good about figuring out what direction the story is going to take. Not this time! I still have no idea yet about the hows and whys. I am literally left right on THE EDGE!!! Bravo C D Reiss!

⚡There are trigger warnings that should be heeded. If that's not an issue for you, I highly recommend it!

This book is read with DUET NARRATION, which always increases the authenticity and interest IMO.💖💖 So thanks for that as well!!!
Maxine Mitchell & Joe Arden both do a fantastic job!!!!!
All five stars (& more) are earned for this one! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Without a doubt, it's worth the cash or credit! The sample alone had me hooked.

This is fantastic!!!

CD Reid’s is one of my very favorite, must read authors, and this book…. This excellent book is just one of the reasons why. Her ability to grab your attention at the beginning of a book, draw you in with more, and wrap you up in the story so that all you want to do is read more and more is her super power!

Caden is dealing with an issue that he doesn’t want his wife to know about. It’s making him act very differently than his normal self. He’s becoming more and more dominant and hurts her. Grayson is a mental health professional who works with PTSD patients and feels Caden’s issue is not PTSD, but she doesn’t know what it is yet. When he re-signs into the reserves so that he qualifies for specialized diagnosis and treatment, Grayson is angry.

Can they survive this? They love each other, but can he keep from hurting her further before he gets the help he needs? Or will he end up being called back to the war??? I can’t wait to find out!!

Joe Arden… he’s fantastic. Maxine Mitchell is a newer narrator for me, and I like her!!

A difficult book, but one you don’t want to miss

This book was quite an experience. Not always a pleasant one either. But the writing makes you feel with all your senses the beautiful though broken relationship between Greyson and Caden.

There’s a lot of disturbing stuff here, so it’s a tough read. It can become overwhelming at times, even without any trigger. Emotions are deep and beautifully described with details, evoquing memories and sounds and scents. There’s love and pain, courage and surrender, determination and despair… You have to let the words take you under the surface.

Here the SM isn’t really fetishized. They both need that kind of relationship, but it’s brutal, violent, and although there’s pleasure, there’s also a lot of pain. Both physical and psychological. I didn’t feel it was sexy, it was mostly heartbreaking.

I enjoyed reading about mental illnesses and trauma. Not because it was pleasurable, but because it was interesting and educational–sort of. Everything about PTSD and Caden’s struggles was fascinating.

The duet narration of the audiobook was perfect for this story. It gives another dimension to the book, and the narrators did a great job with all the emotions–or lack of sometimes. A difficult book, but one you don’t want to miss.
