Not all limits can be negotiated.
The Edge is reaching a major milestone. After ten years in business together, Doms Joe Dexter and Heath Anders are planning a celebration and new beginnings. But even the best-laid plans can be thrown off course.
When Olly, Joe’s beloved sub, gets caught up in a hostage situation involving Special Forces soldiers, PTSD and blood diamonds, a party is the last thing on Joe’s mind. He hates the lack of control, and the thought of losing Olly takes him close to the edge.
Joe is not the only one reassessing his priorities. Olly needs Joe’s strength more than ever. He feels safe only in Joe’s arms or in his bondage.
Can Joe and Olly find sanctuary in each other or will their latest adventure drive them apart?
Reader Advisory: This book contains a hostage situation and scenes of violence.
I adored how we got to see another story focused on Olly and Joe. They are so deeply in love in this story and so settled, it’s nice to see that level of contentment. Plus we get to see more Aiden and Heath which is always a good thing. I enjoyed seeing how Joe and Olly reacted to the situations and events in this story.
Olly is his same mischievous self and can’t get enough of Joe’s dominancy. When he’s in nurse mode, he’s a force to be reckoned with and dang good at what he does. He needs Joe’s guidance though. You can feel him relax and settle when Joe takes command and tells Olly what to do. He’s far more observant than he lets on. I adored how Olly was an integral part in figuring out what was going on.
Joe is so dang possessive. But he’s also not a jerk about it. He’s more concerned for Olly’s safety and wants to be able to spend more time with Olly than having Olly away at work or himself at work. Joe was cooler under pressure than I expected. he didn’t go in, metaphorical guns blazing, like I expected. I truly enjoyed the scene where he was showing some of his weaknesses to Heath. Showed how hard Joe works to stay grounded for Olly and how much he fears for Olly’s safety.
The end of this story leaves room for the next book in the series. I’m eager to see what happens in regards to those last few scenes of this book. Olly and Joe are still deeply in love and so perfect for each other. It’s wonderful getting to see their love for each other continue to flourish as they live their lives.
