    "He wasn’t the man I’d married, but he was my husband." GOOD GOD people!!! I don't even know where to start. This book was absolutely outstanding and had vintage C.D. Reiss feels. It was intense and raw and so gripping. I could not stop reading the minute I started. Greyson and Caden were fire! Their chemistry was combustible and the genuine love they have for each other was palpable. I could not get enough of this story!Without giving away a...

    Have some wine and a fan handy because the ride you are about to take is one hot mindfuck of a rollercoaster.Excerpt: "Don't flinch." He tapped the loop of the belt in his palm, looking between my legs. My breath picked up, getting shallower and faster. [...]He slapped the inside of my thigh with the leather, and I flinched before it struck, then gritted my teeth from the raw sting, twisting with my knees together."Open your legs." He pulled the...

    SWEET BABY JESUS. I can't wait for you to be as stunned and breathless as I am right now. It's going to take me a bit to compose my thoughts about this epic, brilliant bit of mind fuckery. In the mean time, I leave you with this hot AF excerpt, courtesy of the Queen:EXCERPTI spun her and grabbed her from behind, pressing my erection against her. I hooked my fingers in her underwear and snapped it. She got them down to her knees with me still hold...

    “You wanted me to touch you. I’m going to touch you. I’m going to touch every inch of you.

  • SimplyƝì₭
    I was so excited at the start of this book. C.D. was back and she was keeping it dark. Then I experienced the rough edge. She literally takes you to the edge of anticipation, love , angst and oaths. You will challenge what you believe love and understanding truly means when you marry someone. As a wife I could relate to Greyson. Deep down we all want to be everything our husbands want, need and desire. But her journey will just rock you. Out of y...

    I received a VERY early ARC from Ms. Reiss. Thank you Christine! I am not going to give you much about book #1, yes I said book #1. Before you get your panties in a twist, if you have been living under a rock, this is a 4 book series. Each book will release three weeks apart. I don't want to read or hear any grumblings about cliffhangers. You've been warned and you all should be happy we're not waiting three months per book. Okay I feel so much b...

    OMG, I loved this book. But I love all of CD's novels, so that's no surprise. Twisted and sexy, this story grabbed me from the VERY FIRST WORD and never let me go. 6 STARS!

    Just one hot as hell excerpt to whet your appetite for the new series from CD Reiss: "Would you be less afraid of hurting me if we tried to focus more on giving you control?"He looked at my arm, his mouth twisted with consideration, as if he was holding his thoughts back."Well?" I asked."We could try it. But I'm warning you." He put an upraised finger between us. "You'd better be controllable, or we're going back to pain." You need to prepare yo...

    This story is unlike anything else I’ve read before. Maybe there is a story like this out there. Maybe one that people love and have raved about. Maybe I’ll even come across it one day. But what I do know is that this book will always take precedent. It will always be my first and it will always remind me of why I’m in love with the writing of CD Reiss. And why I am so absolutely in love with the characters she has created for this series, ...

    I. Am. Emotionally. Exhausted.Eight hours. Eight straight hours from ten a.m to six p.m is what it took me to read this first installment in the Rough series.It was like going back in time and falling in love with CD Reiss' writing all over again. This was classic Reiss. The teasing, the anticipation, the angst. The unconditional love. The inevitable suffering from that very love that holds our favorite characters together. All of it is within th...

    Fantastic and intense and I need MORE! I very much like CD Reiss going back to her dark roots....CD Reiss has for a long time been one of my very favourite authors and the start of this series shows me exactly why. For me she is at her absolute heart stopping best when she gets down and dirty and delivers a dark and twisty romance and ROUGH EDGE is the beginning of exactly that. Oh, my goodness, I'm so very excited to read more. The series will c...
  • Mindy Lou's Book Review
    Rough Edge follows a married couple, Caden and Greyson. They met while in active duty. There is a little bit of toggling between past and present but for the most part this book is focused on these two living as a married couple and civilians for the first time. Caden is a heart surgeon and Greyson is starting her own psychiatric practice. She is focusing on helping vets dealing with PTSD. These two are madly in love and can't keep their hands of...

    Holy moly this was intense and filled with twists and turns. CD Reiss kept me on the edge of my seat leaving me questioning everything about Caden and Greyson. I enjoyed this couple and their dynamic. She’s a major and he’s a captain which was a cool surprise that she outranked him. Now that Greyson is home from war she’s working as a psychiatrist and Caden a heart surgeon. It takes time for her to get back to the civilian life and slowly t...

    Well damn! That was erotic, hot AF, and all sorts of mind blowing.Caden is an enigma. A generous and compassionate husband on one end of the spectrum and a demanding, take charge alpha on the other. I had no idea what to expect since I went in blind, but holy wow did I get more than I bargained for. Here's what I loved: It's the CD Reiss that I love! Dark and edgy. The book pushes past normal conventions of romance. If you're looking for sweet, t...

    WAUW!! THIS BOOK!!! WAUW!!!!This was...wauw...I'm lacking words. This book isn't at all about what I thought it would be and for once that's actually a good thing. It's hard to say to much about this book without giving too much away and it really should be experienced without knowing too much. So I'll talk about something else: the writing. Last time I read a book by this author I was drooling over the writing. And of course I am again. In fact ...
