Reiss is an expert at leaving you hanging on a precipice. Fortunately, for those of us who are hooked lock, stock and barrel on this series, the wait for Broken Edge wasn’t at all long. I couldn’t get her two protagonists out of my mind and was anxious to see what the author had in store for them. Surprises, there are! Book three picks up where On the Edge left off and if you’re like me, the last maneuver Caden made probably left you aghast. I didn’t think he should have done it; however, there’s quite a twist going on here and much to his wife’s dismay, nothing was going to stop him.
Actually, this is the first time I really got annoyed with Caden. I thought he could have solved his personal issues alongside his wife who would do anything in her power to help him. But oh no, he had to go and complicate matters. Of course, in his eyes he was only trying to make a really complicated situation better. Now then, in this story, everything goes haywire. Greyson’s decision to indirectly join forces with him didn’t please me, either. Yet on reflection, I shouldn’t have expected any less of her seeing as she’s madly in love with her husband. Believe you me, there’s never a dull moment in this read and since the author wouldn’t let her readers have it any other way, the build up to an unanticipated scenario is excruciatingly angst-ridden. In general, the plot’s pace is fast; nonetheless, there is a lull just before halfway which gave me some breathing space. I kid you not! From the second-half onwards, it felt as if I was on a collision course, waiting for the impact to happen.
My lack of trust regarding one of the characters who plays a crucial part in Caden and Greyson’s story, got worse as the story evolved. Man, is this guy bad news or what! His self-importance and pretenses, false or not, enraged me no end. I saw through him though, or at least I think I did. Question is, will this couple and is it really what it seems because I should be used to Reiss twisting the truth by now! When Caden eventually confronted his fears, I let out a sigh of relief only to be thrown back into a turmoil. The ending which isn’t the ending…well, I’m at a loss for words.
I really don’t want to spoil this must read for you; therefore I shall cut this review short. What I do I have to mention before going is that I was in two minds whether or not to give Broken Edge 4.5 or 5 stars. The previous books were like, what the heck am I reading! Even though the setting in this one is harsh, emotions don’t seem to run so high and gave the read a different feel to it. I cannot deny that Reiss’ wizardry storytelling and spectacular prose kept me stuck to the pages throughout. I liked the books structure too, and as always, narrated from different points of view in past tense is my kinda stuff. The banter. Bloody marvellous! So five stars it is, and well-deserved I might add. Bravo!
About CD Reiss:
CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. 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.
