Review

“Ms. Butcher is…phenomenal.”—Affaire de Coeur

About the Author

After spending too many years as an industrial engineer, Shannon K. Butcher learned the skill of writing from her husband, bestselling author Jim Butcher, in order to help him with his stories; she then found the idea of writing her own too compelling to resist. She lives in Missouri with her husband and son, and conversations at the dinner table are more often about things someone made up than about anything that has actually happened.

I received this first read book free from a goodreads giveaway! This book was a "good read", I wanted to keep turning the pages to find out what was gonna happen next, I have not read the whole series this is book three but this can be a stand alone book it has some reference to past events but if you enjoy action, mystery, sexy ex military type men with great bodies, a little love motion then this may be for you! I am now curious about the first two books in this series and will be getting them soon. I gave it three stars only because to me it was a bit predictable but hey you got a hot guy with his shirt off a lot so what's that about predictable? Definitely would recommend to anyone interested in this type of genre.

I used to love this author when she did romantic suspense. I haven't been reading her books lately as she's been writing paranormal futuristic stuff. I thought this book would be more of the straight romantic suspense, not so much. I can't get past the whole mind control evil doctor premise of this book. I love the writing style, the characters were very likeable and I was invested in their relationship, I just couldn't deal with the fantastical basis of the storyline. If not for that you have a fast moving, action packed adventure full of suspense and of course hot chemistry between the main characters.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Third in the Edge romantic suspense series revolving around the Edge Security firm and its manipulated operatives. The couple focus is on Clay Marshall and Dr. Leigh Vaughn while setting us up for Adam Brink and Mira Sage.

My Take
Whoa. Intense story and I can see where it is individually terrifying for its primary participants. Yeah, it's somewhat space-agey with the basic scenario---although I can see where possibilities exist!---and Butcher has some interesting characters. Very real people doing their best in a bad situation. Payton is contrite, but doesn't let emotion get in the way of the best for the most. Clay and Leigh each have their own reactions and interpretations that ring true as their situation evolves. I am a bit surprised that Mira is so careless, but that's human too. One can't stay on high-alert 24/7.

I don't buy that Payton would be that careless at the beginning. Then there's the man Clay is supposed to kill. Gimme a break. With all their contacts and high tech, they can't figure out a way to fake it??

Phew, that scene when Grady finds them and Leigh insists on the handcuffs was very real even as I kept screaming in my head for her to let him go. I do like that Leigh can think on her feet. And act.

If it weren't so horrible, it would be funny that Adam actually thinks he can use Mira against Dr. Sage.

Butcher does a good job of conveying Clay's fear. Unknowing of who is controlling him, why they're using him, what his end-use is. Payton's aid is two-edged and when Clay learns the truth about him, well, that's more support cut away. Then there's that partial knowing as flashes of memory hit him. And knowing that Leigh is only using him for her own ends.

I do love Mira and Leigh's end run!

The romance in this third novel, like the ones in the previous two are a means to an end, the story of two powerful older men who took part in Nazi-worthy medical experimentation on children to create human puppets with advanced gifts, and it has come back in a new incarnation. Payton Bainbridge and Bob Norwood are the men at the center of this series as they seek to remedy and redeem the terrible legacy of their actions 20 years earlier.

Don't get me wrong. The developing story of Clay, now an adult, who was one of those child victims, has been slowly been developing as a backburner story since the first novel. Th he resolution of his situation and his relationship with Leigh was well written and emotionally involving if the same formula of two emotionally wounded people who find love hope and healing in each other. But like the previous two couples in the,series, we won't see them again. They're served their purpose in the greater scheme of things. I'll keep reading because I do want to read how Dr. Strynger gets taken down, but I feel cheated by the lack of continuity for characters Butcher has asked me as a reader to care about.

I would not recommend this book. It was boring and had a very far fetched storyline. I read the sample first, which usually helps. In this case it did not.

This is a very fast paced novel. I enjoyed the changing of setting from one character to another. I liked that it was the start of a series. I am looking forward to reading more from thisd author.

Did not flow well. Did not have the usual Butcher feel. I laid it down many times and finally gave up.
