The Edge of Disaster was fast-paced HOTNESS that I couldn't put down!
I read this book in one sitting (or laying in bed in my case)! The book starts out with Alexia waking up and leaving the bed of a couple of guys, so at that moment it made me curious- What made her this way? I couldn't wait to find out the answer, so I read cover to cover.
I love the first scene with Pearce. There is an obvious connection between the two characters and the way A.M. describes him had me swooning! I would describe their relationship as insta-attraction. It takes Alexia awhile to trust Pearce and his intentions.
As you can tell from the cover, the book is Hot. OMG those parts yeah just HOT. All I wanted to do was do a few re-reads, if you know what I mean!
I don't want to spoil it for you because it is a shorter book so there isn't much to say without spoiling, but I can give you this:
Antagonist in the form of really bad guys- Check
HOT AND STEAMY- Check
Sweet Romance- Check
Strong but Tainted Heroine- Check
Hot Doctor- Check
Yeah I know I have you convinced now!
If you're a part of the UtopYA 2013 Reading Challenge, this book qualifies as one of the awesome books you can count towards it!
