5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly sensual
One of the best erotic romances I have ever read.
Dylan Ivory is an author of erotic romances and her next book is about BDSM. To get a clearer understanding of it she sets up a meeting with Alec Walker who's a dominant and also an author of dark thrillers. Dylan is fascinated by Alec at first glance but also irritated by him.
Alec is a master...

2.0 out of 5 stars Story and characters not so good. The sex scenes are ok, most of them with pain.
The couple meets, falls in love, and has a big misunderstanding. I hated the reason for the misunderstanding. She falls in love with him and then believes he will leave her eventually. So she breaks up with him so she can grieve for him now and be done with it. If she stays with him longer it will hurt more later. He asks her what is wrong,...

3.0 out of 5 stars Could use more conflict,
This is the first book I've read by this author and it started off great. Good writing, good dialogue, good scene setting. About halfway through I started wanting something more than sex to happen. The sex scenes are well written, but I needed there to be more. With the heroine being an erotic author and the hero writing thrillers and being a thrill seeker, the groundwork for good conflict was there, but nothing much came from any of it. Even the most promising bit -- that her brother died in a motorcycle accident and the hero rides a motorcycle-- was sort of glossed over. This won't make my favorites list, but I don't regret buying it. However, I won't be buying any other books by Ms. Bradley for awhile.
5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penney!,
I absolutely loved this book!! It was hot, hot, hot and did I mention hot? I've read over 350 books and there are very few that make it to my favorites book shelf on Goodreads but this is one of them. I couldn't put it down. The sexual chemistry was off the charts and I loved the story line. You won't be disappointed! I love finding new authors and now I'm reading more of her books.
5.0 out of 5 stars HOT HOT HOT,
I could not put the book down, I love the story and the characters. Well done Eve. Put the fan on and relax.
4.0 out of 5 stars Fun reading.,
This is a series of three. Get them all together and read in order. Sex scenes are hot. Male characters hotter.
3.0 out of 5 stars Simple story,
The story is simple . Sex is overvalued, the author should have worked on the characters more than this .
5.0 out of 5 stars 2 mature people,
I really liked this book because it dealt with a novice to the BDSM scene and how a good dom works through it in a healthy way. The characters were very likeable and it is definitely emotional. You are cheering for them at the end.
4.0 out of 5 stars Smart, sexy and sophisticated,
Eve Berlin is the pen name of Eden Bradley, and given how much I enjoyed her novel Forbidden Fruit, I expected nothing less from this one. Eden Bradley/Eve Berlin has an addictive way of writing, she can create engaging characters and challenge preconceived ideas of sexual behavior, all the reasons why I loved Pleasure's Edge just as much as Forbidden Fruit.
While I enjoyed the story a lot, there was a point midway through the book when it becomes somewhat repetitive, and when I became impatient with Dylan's trust issues. I absolutely love it that both Dylan and Alec are writers, which brings them together in first place. There's serious chemistry between them and as you can guess, it gets very hot. There is one thing that Alec says in the novel, that practicing BDSM does not mean that he is a jackass by default and he consistently proves it. He's a true gentleman, very protective and tender towards Dylan. While he's teaching Dylan to let go of her control issues, his dominant character is put to test as well.
Sexy, smart and sophisticated, Pleasure's Edge is great read for you romance and erotica lovers, and I highly recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ehh...good,
It started out great the way they met, but afterwards they started to be a little to much for my taste, but the characters were cute and did match very good together.
5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It!,
Had to buy the entire series as I enjoyed them all. Wish I could find more like them as they kept me wanting more. Keep writing and I'll keep reading! Thank you.
