The next step might be the last...

A woman without a past
Left amnesiac after an accident, Amelia Jamison’s instincts slowly rise from the depths of oblivion to question her life as the wife of a cold, manipulating and distant man. Wisps of a dream show her another man she may have known intimately, but is he a memory, or a fig

4.5 Stars She woke up without a past, without a memory of who she was, what kind of person she was, who loved her and who wanted her gone. The cold stranger in front of her told her she was Amelia, his wife, but nothing about this man was familiar and he ruled with an iron fist and an arsenal of drugs to keep her under control. Somewhere in the back of her mind were fleeting thoughts, or ghosts of thoughts, a man, a life, and love. Nothing like the sterile and cold world she lives in now, comple ...more

Recommends it for: fans of spy romance and Bourne Identity and La Femme Nikita
Recommended to Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) by: Zee Monodee
Walking the Edge is a book tailor-made for readers who love spy fare like "The Bourne Identity" and "La Femme Nikita," with a little "Hitman" thrown in. And the bonus is the heroine is equally if not more lethal than the hero. The atmosphere is spot on, with a sophisticated European vibe that is almost obligatory with this sort of espionage storyline. This is my first read by Zee Monodee, and definitely not my last. I have met her on Goodreads and shared friendly discussions about our mutual lov ...more

Edge of Danger is the first book in the Corpus Agency series, and it starts us off with a serious bang. I really am excited to see where this series heads, as there is so much potential for great things. Honestly, I feel a serious addiction coming on.

This first book starts us with two things that always grab my attention: amnesia and clandestine agencies. Mixing the two together gives you a story that will leave you gripped, curious as to how every detail comes together.

Walking the Edge is the explosive debut novel of the Corpus Brides series by Zee Monodee. Shrouded in mystery and half-truths until its climactic ending, Walking the Edge is a romantic suspense novel that rightfully earns its position as one of the best romantic suspense novels to line my e-book shelves this year.

Walking the Edge kicks off with the heroine Amelia in the midst of a shopping complex, closely guarded by the hulk of a man sent with her seemingly for her protection by the cold and al

(First edition 2009 galley review)

Ms. Monodee has become one of my favorite new authors with the way she writes her characters with so much complexity and bite. Her upcoming Walking on the Edge came just as I was getting into Anne Stuart's romantic suspense books and I have to say both whet my appetite for more books of it's type.

Amelia Jamison awakens to a life that doesn't feel quite like the one she left before her boating accident. Her husband Peter doesn't feel like a loving husband and is

In the case of books I've abandoned before finishing them, I don't presume to write a review, or rate them; but I do sometimes offer a brief explanation of why I didn't finish. Though the bad language was off-putting, I could have tolerated that if the book had compensating positive factors; but I didn't find enough of these. For me, characters tend to make or break a book. The main character here, however, is hard to get to know, because she doesn't actually know herself; her amnesia makes her ...more

This is one of those books that I wish I just hadn't picked up. The writing wasn't horrible but something was missing and it ended up just irritating me. I don't believe that I'll be grabbing the next one in the series or another one by this author at this point.

I was really excited to get this one, I found the blurb intriguing: a woman with amnesia, an abusive "husband", stirring dreams about a mystery man and killer skills that the amnesiac doesn't know how she acquired. Unfortunately, the bl

The first thing that comes to my mind when thinking about Walking the Edge is an episode of female action stars, like Le Femme Nikita, but add in some love to the mixture, making it a non-stop reading book.

Amelia is one of those characters we cannot really relate to in the action-esque sense (unless you’re like Angeline Jolie or something like that), but who we think is awesome for being strong, sensitive, and down-to-earth enough to make a truly complete action star. (Cuz you know, sometimes i

Since she woke up from a comma, Amelia has been kept guarded and drugged by her husband. But after a dream and an overheard conversation, she begins to doubt whether what he has told her is correct. With a chance to escape from his grasp, she heads for Marseilles, in search of a man she only knows from her dream. She hopes he will be able to tell her who she truly is and whether they were lovers.

Finally a book where a woman has to do all the work. Well, most of it anyway. In this story, the heroine has to uncover who she is, has to fight to recover her past, survive the present and build a future. She is strong, determined and extremely brave. She has to fight not only to survive, but to create a life away from drug cartels and guns, next to the ones she loves.

Amelia Jamison wakes up in a hospital after being in a terrible accident that left her with no memory of who she is. She also su

4.5 stars. Wow--this book had me guessing over and over and over. I wasn't sure how it would end or what was going on until very close to the end. I'm not going to say much about the plot or the characters because I don't want to give anything away. At the beginning, I thought I knew what the story was going to be, but I so didn't!

I liked the hero and heroine very much and loved the unusual setting of Marseille. I also liked the hero's best friend, and I hope he shows up in another book in this

Walking The Edge is my first book by Zee Monodee. Give me more! Ms Monodee has delivered a well written book. Gerard and Fey's story is a fast paced nail biter. The characters are fantastic and made this book amazing. There is plenty of action, suspense and sizzle to keep the pages turning. I enjoyed Walking The Edge and look forward to reading more from Zee Monodee in the future. Walking The Edge is book 1 of the Corpus Brides Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not ...more

If Jason Bourne was a woman he'd be Amelia Jamison. Seriously. This is one kick-ass spy adventure with some romance thrown in. I love stories with characters with amnesia and I love that not having her memories made Amelia vulnerable and as we find out more about her, we get to see a different kind of person. We are taken on a journey as Amelia discovers more about the herself and her relationship with Gerard. I really can't tell you more without giving away the plot. This a fabulous story for f ...more

** Free copy of the book was provided in exchange for an honest review. **

This was like getting a peek inside the head of a female "Jason Bourne". An amnesiac who senses things are not quite what she is being told. Suspense and mystery combine to make one heck of a thriller based novel with an underlying romantic theme. The action-junkie in me loved every twist and turn in this stupendous rollercoaster ride.

Amelia Jamison recently woke from a coma after a near fatal car crash left horrifically burned. Not only does she have amnesia, but thanks to the plastic surgery to fix her burn scars, she hardly recognizes herself . She's fed sedatives and unknown pills by her husband Peter, telling it's for her healing process.

Amelia keeps having dreams about a man other than Peter, convinced she was never in love with her husband at all. With knowledge of Peter's affair and his abusive behavior, she makes a

By her surroundings, she knows she is wealthy. She slowly begins to have flashbacks and begins her plan to escape. When the right moment arrives, she steals as much money as she can from her husband and flees, trying to find someone she has seen in a flashback in the

Walking On the Edge is a romantic Suspense and the first book in the Corpus Brides series. It's NOT about weddings, this is hard edgy suspense. Amelia Jamison lives in London with her well to do husband Peter who allows her plenty of money for shopping, with her own bodyguard/ chauffeur. She's living a privileged life as she recovers from a traumatic accident that left her needing plastic surgery.

Yet something is off kilter, the marriage is cold and Amelia was left with amnesia from the accident

Good Book: It kept me intrigued and wondering who she was and why her “lover” didn’t know her.

Pulse racing action, emotion, and hot sex scenes. That’s a great combination for any story. Ms. Monodee keeps the twist and turns coming, not allowing the reader to figure it out what will happen next until it’s just about to occur.
No story is complete without a character doing something stupid. You know, the kind of event that makes a reader re-read the section to make sure it actually happened? The heroine had one of those moments. I wish I could tell you what happened, but let’s just say tha

When Amelia awakens in a hospital with amnesia, a mysterious man is at her side telling her that he's her husband. What follows is a roller coaster ride of thrilling espionage as she goes on a journey to discover her true identity. Just when you think you know how far down the rabbit hole goes, something else happens to add another twist. Amelia has several aliases and is some sort of spy/assassin. But which of the identities is the true one? And is the instant connection she feels for police of ...more

Walking the Edge had me "walking the edge" or holding onto the edge of my seat right from the start. I was taken right into the action and the suspense and I immediately vied for the heroine to find her way. Amelia wakes up from an accident with a husband who gives her the creeps. The hardest part is she has amnesia and remembers very little from her past life. We can tell from her descriptions of her "husband" that he doesn't have her best interests at heart. When he becomes violent, she escape ...more

Since some free books were offered by Lucia Jordan right at the beginning of the book I had expected this book to be very erotic and I was grateful that the erotic scenes were not as frequent as I had expected
There was a plot though though I did think that the relationship between the 2 main characters was a bit imaginative the rest of the story was acceptable.
She does offer the complete series for free unfortunately it is not available in Australia .I did receive this book for free from Insta

This book starts fast and keeps the pace!

Amelia awakens from amnesia with a strong sense that her husband is not who he says he is. Her memories are scattered, but she trusts them enough to follow them from London to Marseille. Despite her amnesia, she is a strong, determined character with great presence. The story includes a sizzling romance with a high-ranking French police officer, while still keeping you guessing who the other two men involved in Amelia's life are and who Amelia really is.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is fantastically gripping, full of suspense, drama and intrigue, and a little romantic. I couldn't put it down, I needed to find out what was going on. It's really a very interesting storyline with some good guys, some bad guys, and one that's both. I loved reading this and look forward to reading more of this series.

The realization made his chest constrict with pain. “Fey went missing right after,” Scott continued, “and Stepanovic also vanished into thin air.” He sighed. “Now, I know she was snatched. I had trouble believing she’d gone rogue on us, too.” He frowned. “Why?” “Something didn’t fit right. You know what the MICE acronym stands for, Commissaire?” He nodded. “Money, ideology, corruption, and ego. The main levers for inciting an officer or an agent to switch sides or defect.” “Exactly.
