Book Review: Edge of Dawn by Lara Adrian

My Review:

I have read all of the stories in this series and I was pleasantly surprised to find out this one was about Mira, who we first met as a little girl who's gift was abused by those around her. 

This story finds her as a very broken woman ever since the loss of the man she loved since she was a child. Kellan was her first everything. She is a Breedmate who has worked hard to make it as a Team Leader for the Order. Her hatred for the Rebels runs deep and she often lets her emotions control her actions. Even after Eight years, she refuses to let go of her love for Kellan. 

After a rash decision leaves her demoted to babysitting a genius she finds herself kidnapped by Rebels. Imagine her shock at finding out the leader of the Rebels who have captured her is none other than the man she has believed to be dead for eight years. 

The amount of betrayal and mistakes these two have to overcome is heartbreaking, but the way their relationship builds back up is beautiful.

This story is a great addition to the series and it even introduces a new enemy for the Breed which sets up a new battle that is imminent. 

Love this series. Paranormal Romance at its best!

Romantic Suspense/ Erotica/ BDSM
Date Published: 1/12/13

Aurélie experiences an identity crisis now that so much has happened over the past few months and realizes she is no longer comfortable with being sub for her fiancé, Rory Krieger. She leaves him though he tracks her down several months later and begs her to return and promises to change for her.

Meanwhile, ghosts from the past continue to haunt their togetherness and Aurélie wonders if a happy ending is at all possible between the two of them. When her family is placed in the center of the conflict, she must decide how far she is willing to go to keep them safe.

My Review:
Please note, this is book #3.

Definitely not for the person who is just looking for a quick erotic read. This book has somethings that will stay with you long after you put it down. 

There are BDSM elements and they are a little different than what I am used to, but that is not a bad thing. 

Aurielle's character was well developed and I enjoyed reading her experiences. Rory was not my favorite male lead. He definitely has his ups and downs and positives and negatives.

PROMO: Safeword: Quinacridone by Candace Blevins

Safeword: Quinacridone
Date to be Published: 12/29/12

What happens when an introverted artist who only likes sex when it’s a one-night stand meets a computer-geek-extraordinaire with his own sexy secrets? Objectification, romance, pain, adoration, lots of kinky toys, and oodles and oodles of wonderfully imaginative sex.

Join Cara and Travis on their journey to mesh their distinctive sexual tastes into a loving relationship with blow-your- mind kink.

  1. Treating a person as an object for use, with no regard for a person’s personality or sentience.
  2. Regarding someone as a commodity; considering them merely an instrument towards one’s sexual pleasure.
  1. A woman is on her back at the edge of a tall bed with hands and feet bound together and restrained above her head. A curtain drapes from a canopy above and puddles on the backs of her thighs. The man about to penetrate her sees only female genitals available for use.
  2. A woman is dressed in a full latex blow-up doll costume with durable latex ‘pockets’ stuffed into her orifices. She is bound into a position giving easy access to all three holes at a party. Her face is completely covered excepting nose and mouth. The men do not know who is in the costume.

Safeword: Quinacridone is a stand-alone book. You do not need to have read the previous books in this series.
Warning: This title contains graphic language, consensual BDSM, extreme objectification, bondage, watersports (one scene), chemical play, fisting, temporary body modification with saline injections (one scene), and the use of toys including clamps, canes, plugs, paddles, whips, floggers, and zip-ties.
