Captain Caden St. John, a surgeon and Major Greyson Frazier, a psychiatrist met in the warzone while being deployed in Iraq. Their short encounter in tumultuous situation led to an intense relationship neither of them prepared to face.
My body was strong enough to resist, but my heart was weak.
I like the story overall especially the war scenes. I’ve always love seeing how people would rise or crumble in desperate position. However, I feel like I didn’t learn anything new much.
“You came off the Chinook like you could conquer the Republican Army all by yourself. So fucking sexy. All I wanted to do was conquer you.”
I read this book after book 2 but the sequence didn’t matter because a lot of the same scenes were repeated. The role of one character was more clear here and that was all that’s new. I wanted to know more of one character’s trauma and what happened to the other character when a new path was chosen.
“I have to be careful with you”
“You don’t know your own limits.”
Cutting Edge is a prequel novella to The Edge series that chronicles the events that led to the relationship of the two main characters. It is available for free on all platforms.
