The Edge of Temptation (The Edge Series Book 1) Kindle Edition
A way to forget about my latest in a string of bad relationships and move on.
I know it’s a mistake. My head and heart are just not into the game.
Until I see him...
The gorgeous man in the dark suit, drowning his sorrows in a glass of scotch is only supposed to be one night of fun. No strings and no expectations means no one gets hurt.
At least that's what I keep telling myself.
And when I wake up alone the next morning, it appears I’ve gotten everything I was after...until I find the shiny gold cufflinks he left behind...and discover Mr. One Night Stand is actually Dr. Jonah Hughes, my new boss.
Too bad that's just the beginning of my problems.

J.Saman has once again written complicated, warm, nurturing, witty characters who you not only will root for, but want as your friends. Jonah has to deal with feelings he has for his late wife and Halle. Can you give your heart and soul to two very different women? Halle has to decide if a ‘fling’ is all she really wants. And then toss in witty dialogue, and remember that crooked boyfriend? Yep, the FBI has arrested him but is he gone? How is Halle involved in HIS criminal activity or is she?
Her friend Aria, a professional painter/artist has a wonderful quote..
“Art is like love, Halle. Rarely black and white and always o0p0en for interpretation. Everyone will have an opinion. One person’s beautiful is another’s ugly. I guess there is a symmetry to that.” To me, this book is truly a piece of art. Enjoy the painting!!
Is the plot the same one you get in most one night stand storylines? Yes. The other plot is the one that Knocked Up made famous, and most people hate. Is it done any better than most thrillers? Nope. Lose threads that mysteriously disappear. A motive that doesn't make sense and, a key detail that relies entirely on the fact that Halle is disorganized. Even though it's never even mentioned in passing that she is that type of person. The plot is just sloppy.
The characters are sketches and need to be fleshed out. The friends are weird. You push bad decisions one night then try to preach caution and sensibility another. It just does not compute. And friends let friends make bad decisions all the time. You support them in their stupid after you have shown them the truth. You hold up a mirror and show them the clown, then you join the circus.
Pacing is not the best. The timeline has issues. More spacing between events would have hurt nothing and made things feel more realistic.
World building is better than average. It has insider stuff about Boston that Bostonians know. Without the typical accent bit, the parrrk the carrr in Harrrrvarrrd yarrrd thing that gets done to death. It could have highlighted more food, culture, and history but better than the bare minimum.
The writing is on the weaker spectrum with lack of research going into jobs. The long talks mentioned but, not demonstrated. Example, my husband and I talked for two hours on the phone the other day. More descriptive sentence, he read me clickbait articles about abandoned places and the best wrestlers, then we spent two hours just voicing our opinions. Are they debating Faust, reading poetry or discussing their childhoods it's not an important decision but it paints a picture. The best writers paint a picture with their words. But the dirty talk was on point so, the writing isn't total crap.
Overall, elements elevated it from the typical, but only just. Not a bad read, but not a recommendation.
The game begins, will the couple stay friends with benefits or will this affair become a HEA? Both characters were strong willed filled with doubts and guilt. Hopefully they will find their happy place together.
