What It’s About:

You think you’d go far for love?

Think again.

———

She really knows how to push a man.

She finds the cracks and she goes right for them. She’ll travel across the world just to break me apart, piece by piece, until every last secret is exposed and every weakness revealed.

I swear to God, I love her so much I’ll let her do it.

I’ll let her do anything.

But when she hurts herself to protect me?

That’s a line in the sand.

My Thoughts:

This storyline is nothing short of amazing.  The love, devotion and sacrifice that both of the main characters, Greyson and Caden, show one another epitomize their marital vows.

“Your strength keeps me upright when I think I’ll fall. I can’t shake you or forget you, because you run through my veins.”

Two strong-willed people who met under the extreme circumstances are drawn to one another like moths to flames.  Do they have what it takes to make this work in the long run?  What are they willing to do to ensure that “no man is left behind”?

The story is told in dual narrative by the main characters.  Ms. Reiss cleverly uses broken memories to share Caden’s past.  I loved the witty use of a crossword puzzle during a conversation between Greyson and her mother.  The pace is steady, and there is plenty of action and anguish. Ms. Reiss makes you care not only about her characters, but also the hundreds of thousands of military personnel who are at the front lines or have returned home with PTSD.

Broken Edge is the third book in a four book series.  It cannot be read as a standalone novel, and there is a heart-clenching cliffhanger. Thankfully, readers won’t have to wait long for the next, and final installment of the story.  Meanwhile, I’ll be sitting in a corner biting my nails while I wait it out.

About the author:  CD Reiss is a New York Timesbestseller. 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.
