Book Review: Razor’s Edge by Jayne Rylon
Isabella’s marriage to the wealthiest man in the state looked fairytale perfect. Only she knows the truth behind the nightmare forcing her to run with the clothes on her back, the scars on her body, and no one to trust. Not even her father. When the man hunting her has unlimited resources, hiding in plain sight is a wise choice. Isabella basks in the protection of the limelight as an instructor on a pro-am TV dance competition. Perfect plan, except her ornery partner is packing moves she never learned in any studio.
A rookie mistake in the line of duty earned Razor months of rehab and a healthy distrust of innocent-looking women. Determined to prove to his fellow men in blue his green has worn off, he goes undercover as Isabella’s dance partner to investigate her possible involvement in a sex-slavery ring. But as he attempts to cozy up for information, their instant chemistry challenges his detached composure. An attempt on her life should have cleared the air. Instead it muddies the waters even more, forcing them both to trust each other. And depend on the one thing Razor thought he had lost, his instinct.
Razor’s Edge by Jayne Rylon was overall a good, enjoyable read. The plot itself was fairly farfetched and unbelievable, but the characters themselves were engaging and brought sustenance and breadth to the story. Isabella is a naïve, sheltered young woman who in the past chose to marry her best friend, or someone she thought was her best friend, to escape the oppressive atmosphere of her father’s house. Her husband turned out to be a puppet for her father and was embroiled in an underground BDSM slavery ring. Isabella, after discovering her husband’s future plans for her, runs to the nearest reporter to spill her story and joins up on a TV dance contest to stay in the limelight to stay safe. Razor, recovering from a previous gunshot wound, is jaded and serious, and does not want to make the mistake of falling in love with a suspect, but cannot seem to deny the sparks that fly between him and Isabella. They just can’t get enough of each other…
I would recommend Razor’s Edge to those readers looking for a bit of drama/suspense in their erotic fiction. A good story, albeit a bit over the top, and is an interesting read and definitely keeps you on your toes! ~ Christina, www.ireadromance.com
