The only reason it took me so long to finish this book was that I kept waiting for a time when I could just read the last half straight through. I enjoyed this SO much better than Razor's Edge and the hero, Clay, was the reason why.

I kept thinking of Larissa Ione's Rogue Rider while I was reading this because her hero, Reseph, bears some similarity to Clay. Reseph as Pestilence launched an apocalypse, leading to the deaths of thousands. Clay, brainwashed, was an assassin, killing whoever he was
Rating 3.5 stars
The hero Clay has been having black-outs for while and he finally calls his boss of sorts Payton for help. Payton along with a few men were responsible for what happened to Clay and others, they allowed experiments to happen on them as kids. He enlists the heroine's help, she is a doctor who lost one brother to this madness and has another brother locked up. Clay was a hero who valued control and now that had been taken away from him, from someone he didn't even know, so he didn'
I received this first read book for free from goodreads giveaway. This book was very enjoyable almost like watching an episode on television! This is my first book in this series and I do believe it is book three,I had no problems with this being a stand alone, I can tell however, there was some back story so I would like to say that reading this made curious to read the other books. I gave it three stars it was a bit predictable but it didn't take away from the entertainment. I'm thankful for ...more
Two Aging Men Seeking Redemption

The romance in this third novel, like the ones in the previous two are a means to an end, the story of two powerful older men who took part in Nazi-worthy medical experimentation on children to create human puppets with advanced gifts, and it has come back in a new incarnation. Payton Bainbridge and Bob Norwood are the men at the center of this series as they seek to remedy and redeem the terrible legacy of their actions 20 years earlier.

Don't get me wrong. The de
Very good read, the ending was very tight with tension. Review to come.
This book had two scenes that I liked. One of which didn't even take place between the alpha male and his woman. The rest of the book was mediocre, which is disappointing from SB. Her books are usually fun brain candy.

This book throws together Leigh, a doctor who does under the table medical work for the Edge, and Clay, geek girl Mira's best bud. The plot is that like Leigh's brother's, Clay was "programmed" as a child and now can be controlled through key words. Clay wakes up bloody one morning
Kathy Davie
Third in the Edge romantic suspense series revolving around the Edge Security firm and its manipulated operatives. The couple focus is on Clay Marshall and Dr. Leigh Vaughn while setting us up for Adam Brink and Mira Sage.

My Take
Whoa. Intense story and I can see where it is individually terrifying for its primary participants. Yeah, it's somewhat space-agey with the basic scenario---although I can see where possibilities exist!---and Butcher has some interesting characters. Very real people doin
This book seemed to focus more on the larger story arc, but it worked well with what happened to Clay, as his whole life revolved around it. I hated seeing what Clay, hated how Clay had to realize and live with what he was forced to do. It would be hard for anyone to live with, but it seemed like Clay's personality was one where it made it harder.

I was glad that Leigh was there for him. At first it was the commonness with what happened to her brother's that started the relationship, but I was gl

One of my favorite aspects of the Edge series is the dark past lurking in the background of Payton Bainbridge and General Norwood. Yes, the focus on the romantic liaisons of main characters from book to book is naughty and delicious, but the hope of denouement regarding Dr. Stynger and wraiths of the past is the sauce which blends the meal in which each installment is a course.

Persons of like mind will be well satisfied when they read Edge of Sanity.

Look for many small gems among Shan
Not a bad, dull, or terrible book, but it didn't grab me and I almost didn't finish it. It followed the same pace and theme that the others in this series did, but I had a hard time connecting with both main characters - I found both a little whiny, and the constant introspection made the extremely fast pace feel glacially slow.

Halfway through, I just stopped caring what happened, and set the book down for weeks till I managed to skim through the last half today. The only reasons I did that was
I actually rate this book 3 and 1/2 stars. I enjoyed the story of Leigh and Clay, and their search for whomever it was controlling his mind.Clay was losing time and when he would wake, he was usually injured and covered in blood. With the help of the urbane Payton and Clay's best friend Mira, they were determined to solve the mystery. Right up to the last chapter, I just could not see there being a HEA. But Shannon pulled it off! Her next book is a new installment of the Sentinel Series which I ...more

I really liked this book. The suspense kept me turning the pages. The sexual tension between Liegh and Clay is sizzling hot.
Alisha Stevens
This book sucked me in from the beginning. More like 4.5 stars for me. I only take off a half a star because Clay and Leigh could be a little frustrating at times. I really liked the introduction of Adam and his chemistry with Mira. Fingers crossed they get the next book.
The storyline in this series is pretty good. You know it's good because at the end you feel frustrated that in each book, we can only chop off a bit of the monster at a time instead of slay the whole beast.
This 3rd book in the continuation of this dark and twisted series was just okay. I had more time for the secondary characters Adam & Mira then I did for Clay & Leigh.
Barb Lie
Another great book by Shannon Butcher. I loved this book, total non stop action. Full review at time of release.
I really enjoyed the strength of the female characters and the introduction of Adam was intriguing.
Another great story. This is a good series; too good to put down. Starting the next book now.
