Roxanne ("Razor") is on a job to catch the thief in the act of stealing corporate data. She fails. Her boss, Bella, believes that Razor is being stalked by Razor's ex-boyfriend and assigns Tanner to babysit her. Tanner has returned from the Special Forces after the deaths of his brother and father and request of his remaining brother.
Razor soon realizes that the stalker is actually from a secret military organization that is sent to retrieve information. Over the course of the book, Razor works with Tanner and others to verify the information and save her best friend, Jake, from the military organization/rogue group.
The plot was well-developed and action paced. Tanner's character was believable, likeable, and heroic. Razor, on the other hand, was not.
I hated Razor because she has a tendency to run off on her own when she knew that she was being targeted by the military organization. In addition, Razor always was ready to charge off into a situation to save Jack and leave Tanner behind if he could not stick to her schedule. Her plans though were often poorly thought out and would have gotten them killed. She demanded to be the one to question a member even though she had no experience in interrogation. Plus, Razor rested very little and her lack of mental alertness could have risked the team. Her only theme was: "Must save Jack; Jack can't be compromised; Jack will always act in my best interest; I will do anything to save Jack."
I kept wanting to say: "Leave the job to the professionals! No, don't charge off into that area. You are providing no back up for Tanner."

Razor and Tanner are so compatible together that they leave you wondering just how two people like them could come together. Razor is amazing in her own right. Working in the undercover field and being trained in all that she is trained for, you would think facing the hostage situation involving her best friend would be a breeze right? Wrong. In comes Tanner O'Connell. Being assigned to watch over her, he is drug along in the scheme she develops to save Jake.
The story that unfolds between Tanner and Razor is one that leaves you guessing. Will they, or won't they? Right when you think they realize their feelings for one another, BAM! something happens. They both have so much to face, own up to and let go of, that they can't seem to get a handle on the important things that are in front of them.
The plot itself is full of twist, turns and OH MY GOSH! moments! Within her own agency, there are people who know secrets on what is going on, but Razor is left in the dark. Loyalty is the name of the game in this book. There was never a dull moment during this book. The plot stayed true all the way to the surprising end!
If you like books that make you want to page turn until you read it all in one sitting, this is a book for you!

Wasn't crazy about the violence or explicit sex but the story itself was greatPublished 2 months ago by Annie
Just because her husband is a BIG-TIME author (Jim Butcher), doesn't make the wife one too.

I jumped into this series starting with book 2 because it was available as an ebook from my library. I thought I'd take a chance to see if the Edge series was worth pursuing. Read morePublished on March 17, 2013 by Barbara Ann
