Jetta was down to earth and I really liked that. She was easy to connect with because of her fears and grief.
Paxton was a alpha male who has all the right protective instincts.
I loved the whole blast from the past plot. Second chance romances are amazing because they happen every day, and being able to see the struggles they face when trying to make it work, was fun. The action aspect was another great part.
Overall, I enjoyed it. This was a good first novel from this author and I look forward to reading more. My main complain was the first POV from Jettas POV but then 3rd from Paxs POV. I felt that it messed with my brain too much. 4 stars #2OCCJD

"On Edge", a second chance romance, is the first book in the Rough Edge series and can be read as a standalone. It tells the story of songwriter Jetta Oliver and wounded war veteran Paxton Elliott. Ten years ago, Paxton made a painful decision, which led to him leaving the love of his life on the day she needed him most. The day her parents died leaving her to raise her sister on her own. Forced to grow up fast as a result she forged a new path for her life. A life that involved her being a guardian to her younger sister. After ten years of not having any contact with Paxton, she had no expectations of ever seeing him again. However, the emergence of a drug dealer demanding that she pay up her father and sister’s debt would change all that. When Paxton discovered the danger that Jetta faced he was more than happy to assist. This was his chance to make amends for the hurt he caused. The moment they re-connected, it was evident that their feelings for each other never faded.
The story with its engaging writing moved between the past and the present, which I considered a plus. This helped me to understand the choices made by the main characters even though I may not have agreed with most of them. It also helped that we get the story from the POVs of both characters. My problem laid with the pacing of the story. The focus of the story was on Jetta and Paxton’s past and current relationship and no mention was made of the issues surrounding the drug dealer until about 70% into the story.
I related to Paxton and Jetta has individuals, but has a couple I did not find them credible. The fact that they jumped in to a relationship so soon after their re-connection did not sit well with me. I say this because they never addressed the issues of their past. These issues affected how they related to each other. Jetta’s behaviour also did not help. Sometimes she displayed shocking levels of immaturity, which was frustrating. In addition, the fact she did not trust him spoke volumes.
The suspense theme, which I thought the author handled well, provided nail biting moments. It was at this point that the story lived up to its name. Figuring out the mastermind behind the danger surrounding Jetta was simple; however, the shocker laid in the motive.
Although not perfect, I enjoyed ‘On Edge’ and look forward to the next book in the series.
The story is told from Jetta's and Paxton's points of view....they were both believable characters but at times they behaved in a way that did not seem to fit their personalities for example Paxton makes suggestive statements to Jetta long before he has properly reconnected with her which made him seem juvenile and Jetta behaves rather immaturely at times.....although I liked both the main characters as individuals, they did not work for me as a couple....there was too much indecision and angst....I really liked the team built around the Elliot security firm and can see how a series based on characters such as Evie, Luc and Addie would be awesome...as a group there was clearly a close friendship, loyalty, love and humour...
A couple of niggles for me were that the action moved backwards and forwards from present to past which, I think, detracted from the flow of the prose and at times the editing of the text made it difficult to identify who was actually speaking...
That said...with it's thrilling, action packed story line, a surprising conclusion and really diverse interesting characters this was a really good starting point which has the potential to become an addictive series..... I received a copy of this book through the Quirky Blind Date with a Book in exchange for a fair and honest review

I will admit at first this book did not pull me in and I can't really explain why. But I am a firm believer in pushing through to the end. This book was great!Read more
