{Book Review} Edge of Regret by Molly E. Lee

Edge of Regret by Molly E. Lee
Published: June 20th, 2017
Series: Love on the Edge #7
Source: Received in exchange for an honest review
Genre: Action Contemporary Romance

Leading man on the new E.D.G.E. series reality show? Check.

Stunt-double for the star in the latest, multi-million-dollar funded military movie? Check.

Work with a sexy female military expert? Holy hell, check.

When I signed on to do stunts for Hollywood’s eagerly awaited war-thriller, I thought it would be like every other gig—go in, try not to get killed, and leave with a fat check and an adrenaline rush. This time? Not so much.

Mackenzie Patterson is the on-set expert. She knows topographical layouts, government lingo, speaks four languages, and is one of the best explosive disposal leaders the Air Force has ever seen, so she’s more than qualified.

She’s also the woman who turned my teenage heart to ash.

I can’t ignore the darkness that has appeared in her eyes, or the urge I have to take it away.

Quitting isn’t an option, but the more I see her, the more I want to make her mine. And that can never happen because our past is twisted with heartbreak, hate, and regret.

Every second I spend with her is a battle between holding on to the anger in my heart—and giving in to the love that never left.

I can’t rave enough about this series!  It is full of action and adventure, swoon-worthy men and friendships that are more like family.  I have LOVED each and every book in the Love on the Edge series, but this one BLEW. ME. AWAY.  These books are so unique and original, each one focusing on a new and dangerous career that takes the characters on epic journeys of self discovery and love.

Molly E. Lee’s writing is just as phenomenal as in the previous books!  Each page was dripping with passion and emotion, pulling me in from page one and never letting go.  This book definitely dealt with a difficult subject, pulling at my heart strings and making me have all the FEELS!  Reading about the experiences that the military has to endure and the repercussions they must face after they are home was heart-breaking.  The portrayal of PTSD was so realistic, making me feel like I was experiencing the fear and hopelessness right along with the characters.

 I never read the synopsis when I went into this book, but I was super surprised when I learned that the leading lady, Mackenzie, was in the military defusing bombs overseas.  Her character was dynamic, broken, independent and completely bad a**.  I liked that she went after what she wanted and was extremely smart.  She might even be my new favorite female protagonist from this series!  And of course Wade was perfection!  Readers were introduced to the funny, charismatic, full-of-life character that we all came to know and love as Wade in Edge of Brotherhood.  I LOVED that in this book, Wade's softer, sweeter side was on full display.  I didn't think it was possible, but he made me love his character even more!

I LOVED the romance in this book!  I am usually not one for second chance romances, but this one was amazing.  For once in a book, I was glad that it was not the women trying to save the man, but the other way around.  I loved that Wade became Mackenzie's safe place, comforting and protecting her.  And their chemistry was AMAZING!  I am really keeping my fingers crossed that their story is continued in future books.

If you like contemporary romance, but are getting tired of the boring stereotypical story lines, I would HIGHLY recommend picking up the books in this series.  Most of the books can be read as standalones, but I recommend starting from the beginning and reading them in order to truly fall in love with each couple.  But be prepared to not get much sleep because each one is addicting and full of action!


“She inched her lips toward me agonizingly slowly before she brushed them over mine.  I closed my eyes and breathed her in, sucked her back into my soul like the first real breath I’d taken in years.  I gripped her neck, swiping my tongue between her lips, claiming her mouth in the wild way my body demanded of me.  I had years to make up for.  Years worth of worshiping her body until I’d somehow physically and mentally stitched her back together.  If she’d let me, I would do it.  If she’d let me, I’d give her everything.”
