Title: Edge Series: Romance on the Edge #1 Author: Tiffinie Helmer Audio Book-Narrator: Mia Chiaromonte Rating: He’s lost his edge…
Photojournalist Cache Calder lives to chase a great story. He’s just returned from the Middle East after surviving a suicide bombing that left him injured and grief-stricken. The last thing he wants is to travel to the wilds of Alaska on a “Where Is She Now” Assignment. But when his editor informs him that his subject is former kidnapping victim, Amelia Bennett who jump-started his career twenty years earlier, he packs his bags.
She lives on the Edge…
Mel Bennett’s carefully maintained control unravels the moment she meets Cache Calder. Attraction flares for the man who seems to really “know” her. No one at the Edge of Reason Lodge is aware she was the young teenager who’d survived one of the most publicized kidnappings in recent history, and she wants it to stay that way. But she starts to question her heart and her sanity when unexplained incidents begin to happen and a deadly threat returns to finish what he’d started so long ago.
This story begins with us getting a pretty graphic and crazy Prologue. Then it sets us up for Cache a photojournalist who is being assigned a new job. The job is going to take him back to the past to see how the star of the story that made his career is turning out years later. So, he goes to Alaska to meet her.
The problem is that she doesn't really know what he does for a living, and she's keen on keeping her life private, and people away from her. She suffored something really horrible years ago, and Mel just wants to get away from it all. Hence living in Alaska with very few friends, and hardly ever speaking with her family. But when the handsome Cache comes into town he brings a whole lot of feelings, and trouble she never wanted. Along with her sister she has a whole lot of things to worry about, and is unaware of the danger lurking around every corner.
This audio book was my first to listen to. It was actually really interesting, and had me hooked from the start. The suspense was pretty good, and most of the characters were very interesting. The only thing I didn't like was the drama between the sister and Mel. I sort of wish the story had pulled more suspense and romance into it. But it was still a very good interesting read. And I've discovered that I enjoy audio books, and I do recommend this one!
