Review

USA Today says "Adventure, betrayal, revenge and redemption -- you'll find it all in The EDGE Of TRUST."

"KT Bryan doesn't just kick off her Team EDGE series with this powerhouse of a story, she fills it with rocket fuel and launches it straight into the stratosphere. " ~ Tracy (One Good Book Deserves Another)

K.T. Bryan has created a new level in fiction writing. The author has combined an action thriller that will take your breath away with the suspense with a romantic love story . The characters are believable and likable.  K. T. Bryan has succeeded in putting the readers in every scene and allowing them to vicariously live the events. As more people discover this author's work it should find its place among the best seller lists and we may soon be able to watch movies based upon it.  -- Avid Reader


Wow..."The Edge of Trust" by Author KT Bryan is an exciting and captivating thriller. KT Bryan weaves an incredible story with many subplots and the unpredictability of what's going to happen next added to the suspense. Ms. Bryan manages to masterfully tie all the loose ends together at the summation of this well-written and intriguing novel. I very much look forward to the next one in this series.  KT Bryan is one talented author!
Dolores Ayotte

More About the Author

I'm an action, adventure, and romantic suspense/thriller author who enjoys good wine, great art, Tuscany, and a touch of mayhem. (You never know what you might see when you wake up suddenly in the dark.) I'm the author of TEAM EDGE.

The EDGE Of Trust is the first book I ever wrote and I've been very fortunate in gaining some amazing fans and also garnering some really cool awards. About two months after I published my first book (The EDGE Of Trust), my husband was diagnosed with cancer. He's gone through three major surgeries (bladder, spine, kidney) since 2012, and we're not done yet (getting close though!). Your kindness, support, and reviews keeps me going on the days I don't think I can. For that, I thank you all.

My alter ego writes romantic comedy as Katie Bryan. If you like romantic comedy with a Christmas theme, a sexy rich guy, an Irish heroine who mutters in Gaelic, a crazy bet, a long held secret, and lots of pets then chances are, you'll enjoy LOVING LOGAN.

I currently live in Georgia with my family, one overweight German shepherd (Harley, That Darn Dog who has his own FB page) and two very spoiled cats. I have a varied background in the military, the airlines, antiques, and medicine. My favorite career is writing and sharing stories with readers and fellow writers. Thank you for reading!

Here are a few of my favorite adages:

We are all weird. And life is weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours we call it love.

The best sex involves love and an open mind.

It's not so much what you say that counts, it's how you make people feel.

The biggest mistake you can make is doing nothing because you're scared to make a mistake.

If you catch yourself working hard and loving every minute of it, don't stop.

It's not about getting a chance, it's about taking a chance.

True friendship and true love do sustain the tests of distance and time.

Even when you feel like you have nothing, someone else likely has far less.

Spend as much time as possible with the people you love.

Over-deliver on all your promises.

Make time to be spontaneous.

Hearing the right song at the right moment can throw you back in time or define the meaning of life.

A familiar smell can bring an ancient memory into clear focus.

Pink Floyd once said "the memories of a man in his old age are the deeds of a man in his prime". There is no simple pleasure more satisfying than recounting the greatest moments of your life with your closest friends who lived these moments alongside you.

Life is extraordinary in the moments when you are laughing so hard you can barely breathe.

There are few people you allow to hold your hand, so when it happens you can be sure that the moment is special.

K.T. Bryan has created a new level in fiction writing. The author has combined an action thriller that will take your breath away with the suspense with a romantic love story . The characters are believable and likable. I found that although I hated the villains, I also found myself feeling some sympathy and understanding for some of them as I learned their backgrounds. K. T. Bryan has succeeded in putting the readers in every scene and allowing them to vicariously live the events. As more people discover this author's work it should find its place among the best seller lists and we may soon be able to watch movies based upon it.

I was privileged to read this book prior to its publication and I'm thrilled it has now finally been made available to a wider audience. Edge of Trust is a brilliant start to a great new series filled with touching romance, unforgettable characters, non-stop action and edge-of-your-seat suspense...no pun intended. If you're a fan of romantic suspense you'll love this book.

At least 2/3 of this book is unnecessary emotional drama that borders on hysteria. The overwrought back and forth about feelings could work if it was chopped to a manageable level, but this author over indulges with extensive, trivial and utterly repetitive fears that bring the whole story to a standstill for pages upon pages of emoting/fruitless bickering and sullen withdrawal. The action is likewise overdone, just not believable in any real world fashion, the first chapter or two may be workmanlike, but after that the whole plot is not realistic. It is weakened by lame coincidences and absurd dramatization- one scene someone throws a hand grenade near the door to distract those inside (as if none of the good guys will get hurt), in another a Navy Special Ops supply bunker loaded with guns and ammo in San Diego is a)unguarded and b)locked with simple padlock so the hero can load up on crucial weapons and supplies on a moments notice while the whole base is looking for him. Several scenarios drag on for pages and pages of hiking, swimming, running etc. that last for hours of plot time which would surpass the human endurance of any Navy Seal, much less an untrained female tagging along. I cannot imagine how this got so many 4-5 stars, it is not a thriller, it is not entertaining, original or compelling in any way except and unless you are drawn to emotional overloaded people hemorrhaging on their feelings

I sometimes wish that there was a different way to rate the books. I loved the story, the SEAL undercover, the cartel, the violence, and the secret ops. That was great. Super action, well written and I bought the whole story and premise. But then I found myself hating the heroine. I get it - almost all romances have to have a reason for us the reader to wonder if they'll get together, but sometimes... well, sometimes, I just don't like what it does to the female. They get stupid and do really stupid things. Things that don't make sense. Things that make me want to slap them. And while they don't deserve the big ugly things - they don't deserve the perfect ending. I spent more than the middle third of this book wanting to slap the heroine. Not that the hero didn't need a good tap up along side the head, but she just flat out annoyed me. But, I hung in there because the main story was excellent. So why a three and not a four. Because when I think of this book I'll think of two things. My urge to slap the woman and a particular scene in the cave. Dillon may have wanted to drive her away, but no way would he have done that. My faith was broken. I quit caring about the couple and just read it to find out how they solved the problem.

Wow..."The Edge of Trust" by Author KT Bryan is an exciting and captivating thriller. I thoroughly enjoyed the suspense, the romance, and the 'edge' to the story. I did not want to put this book down.

The main character, Commander Dillon Caldwell of the EDGE team, is in constant danger as he fights the kingpin of the Mexican drug cartel. Sanchez is a notorious drug lord who has no conscience, no scruples and a lust for power and money. Caldwell goes undercover in order to bring Sanchez and his notorious drug ring down but at the same time not only puts his life in peril but, that of his wife Sara's as well. Their romance and love story is intertwined to add to the compelling theme.

Author KT Bryan weaves an incredible story with many subplots occurring and the unpredictability of what's going to happen next adding to the suspense. She manages to masterfully tie all the loose ends together at the summation of this well-written and intriguing novel. I very much look forward to the next one in this series. Author KT Bryan is one talented author!

I received "The Edge of Trust" as a free Kindle download.

While this is not my favorite genre, I changed it up a bit with this book. I am glad at did. The story grabs you quickly and the characters are believable and interesting. Like many, if not most action thrillers, the plot is twisty and mysterious. You often have to read on to really understand what is happening. And yet, it is not a chore to flip the next page. The plot is quite inviting. The world of special ops and drug cartels is foreign to me, but I suspect much of this kind of stuff happens in the world, especially given the navy SEALS work in taking out Somalian pirates, Osama Bin Laden, and the horrific things happening in Mexico. Moreover, the abundance of corrupt politicians in the world makes this book very believable. The situations are so far beyond what I can imagine for me and my family, but I appreciated the tensions and emotions the author created with friends and family in this book. The feelings were deep and moving as I read. I really don't have many action thriller books in my library to compare this to, but I will definitely be comfortable reading another KT Bryan book. Although I didn't encounter the powerful prose or vast vocabulary of some fiction, I was treated with a very good story line and a satisfying ending. Take a chance on this book...it is worth it.
