Rough Edge by CD Reiss Blog Tour

"Unzip that dress before I shred it."

You married a decent man.
A rock solid, arrogant war hero who knew exactly who he was and what he wanted. He wanted you, and you gave yourself to him.

You are his only desire—the only woman in his orbit—but the intensity of that desire is turning dangerous.

Love may be the death of both of you.

New York Times Bestselling author CD Reiss brings raw intensity to a couple so in love, they'll make the darkest of sacrifices to save each other.

Author’s Note: Rough Edge is the first book of four, with a prequel titled  Cutting Edge.
It's an epic, intense, love story with some dark elements that could freak out some readers. I encourage you to read the reviews carefully in order to determine if this book is for you.

In the dark, during the fundraising video, she leaned into me, taking my hand. “What’s going on?”


“Caden.” My name was more than a statement. It was a comment on how well she knew the animal, and how well she loved it.

If eyes could listen, hers did, gazing at me in the darkness. I couldn’t lie to her for much longer.

The entire invite list was watching the video. The bar was empty. The hallway lights were dimmed. The kitchen staff moved constantly and quietly to set up the buffet.

I laced my fingers in hers. She had a gold band we’d gotten out of expediency. No big sparkling rock. No sign I’d ever courted her properly before marrying her.

My father always said a man didn’t skip steps if he wanted to do something once.

I slid my cheek to hers and whispered in her ear, “I want to destroy you.”

Her hand tightened in mine so tightly I could feel our bones. Her glands must have fired, because the apples and the perfume melded and became something so uniquely her my balls ached—but not for simple release. For something more. An agreement of ownership.

Waiting wasn’t an option.

Pulling her by the hand, I headed for the hallway.

“Caden,” she said when we were away from the event, “slow down.”

I didn’t. I couldn’t. I pulled her down the carpeted steps to the lower level, stepping over a velvet rope at the bottom. The lights were out in the hall. Three doors led to three empty event rooms.

“What’s with you lately?” she asked.

“Are you saying no?”

“I’m asking a question.”

I backed into one of the rooms and pulled her in. It was dark but for light coming from under the doorways on each side. I walked in deeper, eyes adjusting quickly enough to avoid the tables and stacks of chairs on wheeled dollies.

“So am I.” I faced her. “Are you saying no?”

“What are you hoping I’ll say yes to?”

“I’m going to pull that dress up until I can get to these hard nipples.” I pinched them through the dress and she gasped. “Then I’ll bend you over one of these tables and fuck you so hard walking’s going to hurt. Are you saying no?”

“I’m not. But I want to know what’s going on with you.”

“Pull your dress up before I shred it.”

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Floored. That's what I am after finishing this book. Completely Floored. What a great story with a make-me-bang-my-head ending! C.D. Reiss writes the best, dark and rough, sadistic men AND the women who love submitting to them.

Caden and Greyson are both ex-military, Caden's an amazing heart surgeon, Greyson's a psychiatrist specializing in PTSD. They're finally both home after tours in Fallujah and they're trying to start their civilian married life together. Except, Caden isn't quite the same man he was while in the service and Greyson, forever the psychiatrist, is trying to understand what happened to her staunch and confident but loving soldier. Caden has become sadistic in his desires. He's dominating and controlling, feeling, and needing to physically hurt Greyson while he ravishes her. It doesn't help (hurt?) that Greyson is finding that she loves it, every single bruising and bondaged moment! Greyson and Caden are embarking on a sadist-masochist relationship completely unbeknownst to them. Never really knowing that the other had such dark desires, they seem to push and pull it out of each other. The revelations and conciliations that both characters have to deal with while trying to find a new balance in their marriage really make for some awesome page turning goodness.

Can they continue to live like this – can Greyson trust Caden not to truly harm her? Can Caden keep on with the demon he thinks lives inside of him and the guilt of what soothes him? Hope to find out in book two, BABY! Can’t wait!! Complete page turner.

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.
