A sexy and intense prequel to the Edge Series. There’s a war going on. You need to pay attention to your job, not the surgeon. Not his sky-blue eyes or the confidence in his hands. Not the smile under his mask or the way it fits on his jaw.
Eight days of casualties. Eight days of hell. Then you are the casualty. You are the one he’s standing over. The one who can save you. And as sure as the sky stretches from horizon to horizon, you love him. But this is a war, and love doesn’t blossom in a war. Not without sacrifice. ———— This is a Prequel to the Edge Series. It features the same couple. the same Alpha hero, the same rock-solid heroine.
Cutting Edge is the prequel to Rough Edge. I read it after Rough Edge which worked out well since I believe was the better order to read it in. As far as the story’s timeline goes, Cutting Edge is how Caden and Grayson met. The good news is this novella was free when I read it and I believe it will remain so, but as usual please check before you purchase!
What I enjoyed this time was the background to not only their relationship but the secondary characters as well. I didn’t have a problem with connecting to Grayson’s ex-military colleagues, but now I have a deeper appreciation for their place in this story.
It was easier to connect with their chemistry at this stage of the relationship. Even though it is a lot less complicated than where it is headed, the foundations they built their marriage came about from more of a reaction versus. a carefully considered proposal.
The exhausting constant workflow was broken up with stolen flirtatious interludes and the brief poignant exchanges of humanity. Thinking back, it had a MASH vibe without the filters and frivolity that allowed it to be shown during family time.
If you have read Rough Edge before reading this book, then the ending is not a cliffhanger. It added another layer to the mystery and has fed my inner sleuth with the additional knowledge it provided. I will be clearing my reading schedule to dive right into the next book as soon as it lands on my iPad!
