I panted through this story with the hot triad ménage D/s scenes. I’m a guilty voyeur who derives great pleasure watching others. To catch two hot men, one a sheriff and the other a big bad biker in a D/s scene would push me over the edge. Apparently, it catches Erin’s interest when she unknowingly walking into a hot scene. Naughty Erin isn’t able to resist watching either. To her chagrin, the men know she’s there and tease her to join. Freaked out, Erin runs for her life. I have to say, if it w ...more
4.5 Stars is more accurate too bad we can't give half stars.

I really liked this book and I especially loved the chemistry betwen the characters. My absolute favorite was Cade...what a hottie, that's considerate and understanding and strong on top of it.

What I didn't like about this book was the heroing in the first half. I wanted to strangle her. How can a person be so confused and selfish? I couldn't believe it took her over half book to even give the relationship a try. All I could think was "

I really liked Sara Brooke's book Ragged Edge. It's about a m-m relationship between a Dom, mechanical engineer Dalton and his lover/ sub Cade that undergoes a dynamic change with the introduction of petite graphic designer Erin. She first spies Dalton and Cade in a steamy sexual m-m episode which shocks her to find she is turned on by her voyeuristic encounter. Throughout the story Erin who is recovering from a failed and sexually inadequate relationship, she finds her logic and rational head s ...more
There's a lot to like about "Ragged Edge," but there's a lot to be frustrated about as well.

Dalton Shaw, local bad-boy, is happy with his life. He gets to spend his days working on bikes and his nights with Cade Roberts, the sheriff. Until Erin arrives unexpectedly at Dalton's shop one evening and finds the the middle of something...She's fascinated, but disturbed about her reaction. Dalton and Cade are intrigued by her, and decide to pursue her. Loads of extremely hot sex happens befo
Really enjoyed this book, very hot! Liked the characters and the way the relationship develops and isn't just instant.

Dalton and Cade are in a relationship that is only sexual or that's what they want to believe, because after a tragic event Dalton wont let himself care about anyone. Then they meet Erin and are both attracted to her and want to include her in there casual sex relationship. They soon realize there is more than just sex there, and want to build a relationship together, but Erin d
I’ve read several books now by Sara Brookes and Ragged Edge is my absolute favorite. The dynamics in this book is incredible. No meet, hop in bed and HEA in 24 hours or less here. The time span of the story takes place over several months so you know there is time for their relationship to evolve naturally. The character development of Dalton, Cade and Erin is very well detailed. They are all less than perfect filled insecurities and flaws that make them feel very real. No doubt there is a conne ...more

RAGGED EDGE takes readers on a journey with Dalton, Cade & Erin into the D/s world. Erin is the perfect fit as the third in Dalton & Cade’s existing relationship. When she stumbles upon them together one night, her days and nights thereafter are continually filled with the image of the two of them together and wanting desperately to experience even a little bit of what they share. Cade has been Dalton’s sub for a few years already and knows when Dalton wants something, there’s very littl ...more

My Review:
This book was so good. I picked it up on a complete whim this week when I read the first chapter that the author had posted on a blog. I was intrigued, bought the book, and read it that day. It was definitely worth my impulse buy and the fact that this book bypassed the other 300+ books that are currently residing in my TBR pile. This is most definitely an erotic read (BDSM, M/M, anal, menage) but it is so much more. This is really an emotional book too as you watch these three people
Erin Kyle
This story is very hawt. But it's not *just* about the D/s aspect; it's about the romance between Dalton, Cade, and Erin. It's about three people's journey from "it's just sex" to "maybe it's more."

One evening, Erin walks in on a private moment between Dalton and Cade, and can't look away. Long story short, Dom Dalton and his sub Cade both want to add Erin to their relationship, such as it is, and teach the vanilla princess about the art of D/s.

But Dalton's been hurt before, and Erin's been hurt

Hot from the very beginning, this book takes you on a fascinating trip into the world of submission.

Nestled away in Collington Creek, a small town north of Atlanta, Georgia, three people are heading for crash course of self discovery and healing. Along the way, they bring down barriers and heal agonizing wounds. Ragged Edge is filled with heart and soul. You are shown the true beauty and emotional bonding of a D/s relationship.

This is as hot as it can get, and yet contains an engaging plot as well! I would describe the D/s elements as being light, but only because of the style, not because it wasn't serious. Through the story it is clear that demons need facing and barriers breaking, but these happen naturally, rather than being rushed. One feels like the luckiest of voyeurs on a number of occasions!
This was a very thoughtful book. The relationship between the three protagonists was beautiful and I particularly enjoyed the way it developed slowly rather than all at once as so many romances seem to do. The BDSM was not heavy but this is a D/s relationship which also grew slowly and thoughtfully. I don't mean to make it sound boring, because it was anything but. I could hardly put it down. I wanted to find out what had happened to Dalton and particularly enjoyed Erin's journey into submission ...more
I'm really bummed this book was full price because it just didn't work for me. The sex scenes were good, and a few were hot, but everything else fell kind of flat.

Initially I didn't relate to the characters but thought that would change as I continued... it didn't. I couldn't connect with any of them and although I didn't dislike them, I didn't particularly like them either (although Cade would prob be my favorite if I had to chose). They were just, "eh". I didn't really like the way Dalton han
I asked a friend of mine to give me a recon with lady porn and anal sex. Boy, this did not disappoint! I often wonder what I would do if i happened upon an intimate mm moment. i would probably watch too!! With these two, I would do so with pleasure!! My lady porn phase is in full effect!

So for a BDSM book this one was very (VERY!) light. I tend to like books with a bit more bite but the story here was very good. The men's relationship was phenomenal - Cade and Dalton really are good together. I love it when there are M/M relationships where the guys are very comfortable with who they are and what they want. The first scene (the Sherriff one) was steaming!

Enter the girl - which threw a different dynamic into the story. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it seemed contrived. I rea
I absolutely loved this book. The D/s dynamic was spot on. It was really refreshing to read about the heroine not falling in love right away too.
Adored this book!! Funny, hot, sexy, hot, great BDSM, hot, great storyline, - did I mention hot? The chemistry between Dalton & Cade as well as the guys with Erin is great. Erin is new to the BDSM scene & the guys are sweet, attentive, commanding, & perfect for Erin. A little of Dalton's past comes back to threaten the three but they prove to be in a strong relationship. I couldn't put this book down. The cover almost turned me off - it would have looked better to show Dalton on a mo ...more
Wow this wasn't what I expected in a very good way and a solid 4 1/2 stars. The writing in this is great and the characters were all very well developed. So well in fact, that I have to say that I fell a bit in love with each one. I really enjoyed the chemistry between them and the focus on what was happening emotionally in their relationship. It is most definitely an erotic BDSM read, but it was also so much more than that. The three of them overcome their own issues and to find themselves wher ...more

What I think I liked most about this book is that the relationship developed incrementally (over a number of months). There was nothing simple and I think this book was made all the better for that. Not to take anything away from other books in which the relationship evolves at breakneck speed - reading them serves a different purpose for me (and most likely others) but it was really good to read something a bit more balanced.

I'm definitely planning on looking out more books by this author.

Wow! This book is a must read. I tagged this book as lite bdsm because the story is about the characters and the challenges they face in self-discovery and in learning to love themselves and each other. There is D/S since Dalton is a Dom and Cade and Erin are his submissives. Even the mmf aspect is presented in a different way. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it. I will be checking out Ms. Brookes other books!
Ragged Edge was hot enough to singe my fingers as I read it as fast as I could. I devoured the story line, and felt each emotion keenly. The relationship between the three people, Dalton, Cade and Erin, is both sweet and smoking hot. The whole time I was reading it I wanted to be Erin. To have the devotion of two men is definitely a special gift. I absolutely loved this book and can't wait to read more from Sara Brookes!
Kacey Hammell
Wonderfully written, sexy as hell men, temptress of a's the perfect ensemble to GREAT reading.
Loved Dalton -- he's forever a favourite hero of mine.
Hope to see more of these characters again and hope that author will write more of this genre.
This story was more of M/M than M/F/M and surprisingly I appreciated it. I guess a good love story is what it is regardless of gender. This was quite intense since Dalton is one of those tortured heroes.
Laura Miller
This is one of my favorite books and the one that started me down the road to M/M romances. So worth the read. I have actually read it twice which is a rarity for me with books but this one was worth it.
Cassandra Carr
LOVED IT! A realistic portrayal of the conflicts involved in a menage relationship. Nice job and can't wait to finish Perfect Limit!
This had some very light BDSM scenes. Cute story.
Convoluted Coyote
LOVED this book, it was hard to put down!
just couldn't get into it.
