Crazy Bibliophile and Book Pimp (Not So Anonymous)

I am a mother of two boys and avid reader; I practically live and breathe books. If I could sustain my life on just reading, I would live forever. I'm weird, and proud of it. I have traveled to many places: Mexico, St. Marteen, Prague, England, Cozumel, and Canada to name a few. Many moons ago I co-hosted "Welcome to Insanity" radio show on a micro radio station in TX- but our show was played via streaming internet in coffee houses in Amsterdam. I have a BA in theater. I used to be "the finder of lost things" but I think my last child robbed me of my gift. Now I just have a large collection of useless information... it goes with my growing mountain of "to be read" books

Edge of Disaster (An Edge Novel, #1) - A.M. Hargrove A lovely romance with Middlegasms!

This is one of those, 'feel-good', fun, flirty romances that is a fast read. The characters are not perfect, but not so damaged that it feels like a session in therapy to read. Edge of Disaster is a wee bit 'fast' on the romance (aka insta-love... or almost,) but sometimes, that's just the type of book you need. Right?

I do want to clarify... I still would not consider this to be a 'fluff' romance. It does have some darker moments, some scary-type situations. It's not all romance and flowers and candles. There is some actual conflict and trauma that Alexia must overcome. Heck, the beginning of the book starts with examples of her downward spiral and walk of shame. I like how it's still seated in reality and not entirely glossed over to make 'real life' seem perfect.

The chemistry must be mentioned... combustible, smoldering, get-your-seat-wet steam. I will also never again look at a diamond tennis bracelet in quite the same way (who knew it could be a sex toy?) It was very titillating and worth the read just for the between the sheets action.

The only thing that stops me from going to 5 stars... honestly I wanted more. More steam, more romance, more conflict, more everything. It was entertaining and enjoyable as is, but I think more of everything would have turned that knob up to an '11'.

I still HIGHLY recommend running out to get your own copy, and see the man splendor that is Pearce.
