This novella prequel goes back in time to when Captain Caden St. John and Major Greyson Frazier meet during their deployments. Volunteering as a surgeon after 9/11, Caden’s motives are personal but his dedication and focus to healing is boundless. Reared in a military family, Greyson knows the drill but it being around Caden starts to change her long-term outlook. 

“I want the taste of your cunt on my fingers when you leave.” Fly open, pants halfway down my ass, I was already wet for him. “I want you to be sore so you’re thinking of me when you land.”

Upon Caden’s arrival, Greyson is assigned to monitor the mental state of surgeons on duty. As they work together, their attraction is mutual and combustible. Caden is self-assured, competent and hot as hell, but Greyson becomes aware of Caden’s limits. 

“He stared at the way his thumb stroked the scars on my wrist. “I went out to prove that I could.”

Getting to read about how Caden and Greyson meet is essential to the foundation of their story. Additionally, the tone of being on base during wartime is effectively and convincingly conveyed and it underscores how Caden and Greyson process under stressful situations. 

Cutting Edge focuses on how people push themselves for a greater good and how they can find a deep connection during traumatic times. This prequel can be read any time after the first book, Rough Edge.
