I have had months to try and word a review for this book that will do it justice, and I am still struggling. As an avid reader and one that can smash out 40 books in a month (I don't sleep LOL) well I read a lot of damn books, and I have come across some pretty damn amazing ones over the last year... It's easy to lose track when I'm reading 40 books a month but I have a pretty awesome

Oh Sebastian Shark what a tangled web you weave!!! I cannot praise this series enough, these are simply perfection. I want a Sebastian in my life, I don't care that he is cocky, arrogant, an a**hole, but, a goddess in bed. This man has so many secrets until Abbigail had better RUN. She is so innocent but, the heart wants what the heart wants and hers what's Bas!
I'm not sure if I will survive until, Book 3 comes out. I am in LOVE with this series and Angel Payne and Victoria Blue are amazing

I'm still excited so stay tuned :)

update (12/18/19): Again I find myself updating you with more LOL I wasn't going to this time for real. I was going to wait until Shark's Rise published and then go crazy but ...

Okay, so I only thought the story was a lot when I read Shark’s Edge. Ya’ll, it’s child’s play compared to what’s to come … buckle up!

At about 25% this happened … "I See Dead People" and then we all drank tea (what is happening?!) lololol I knew then I needed to just let the journey

As we go deeper into Sebastian's story and life we start to realise he has some true enemies but its discovering who hates him that much and wants to ruin his life.

Our Abbigail has really got her claws deep under his skin and he can't seem to escape these new found feelings, but is their bond unbreakable?

With having to discover who is out to destroy Sebastian is anyone truly safe?

A fantastic follow on story keeping you on the edge of you seats.

A fantastic series which I cant wait to carry on

Shark's Pride is the second installment of the Shark's Edge series, and it seriously does not disappoint. I love the relationship that Bas and Abbi have developed, and their banter is the very best. There is some serious hot sexy delightful loving, along with intrigue and exploration into Bas's past and his feelings. Abbi is his sunshine, his happiness, and he will do anything to protect her. Someone wants to ruin and discredit Bas and everything he has worked so hard for. Bas is an

SHARK’S PRIDE BY Angel Payne & Victoria Blue
Shark’s Pride is book 2 in this new endeavor by Angel Payne and Victoria Blue. I cannot adequately express how much I am loving this series! Book one was excellent and book 2 is even better than it was! I am confident that my kindle will melt during book 3. Sebastian and Abbigail are still trying to find their way together, while trying to figure out who is wanting to bring Bas down. Can he protect Abbi while they work to figure out the enemies he

When Sebastian and Abbi are unable to deny the chemistry between them it looks like they are finally ready to acknowledge the feelings between them until they separated and insecurity and doubt creeps in. Sebastian is determined to prove to Abbi that he wants more than a physical relationship with her and that means ensuring that she isn’t caught in the crossfire by his enemies.

Full of emotion and heat Sebastian is steadfast in his goal to protect Abbi while Abbi shows her strength and

So much happy new love and discovery are shadowed by someone who is out to bring down Sebastian. Abbigail's strong sense of self and weak belief in his feelings for her are a battle Sebastian has to wage to get her to see his truth.

But, unexpected houseguests could put her in danger and he can't let that happen. Horrible happenings have them looking harder for the enemy.

I love the fire from and between these two. Their friends are rocks even when they are at odds with them. There are those

Oh Holy One help me! This book is everything...

It picked right up where, Shark's Edge left off, and boy howdy, how this book affected me.

The connection between, Bas and Abbi is so strong, it's crazy. It has my emotions all over the place. I'm crying real tears for these two. Now, I have to know what happens in, Shark's Rise. But I guess, I'll have to wait along with you to find out.

5 stars is no where near enough for this book!

Angel Payne and Victoria Blue, you've done one helluva job once

Wow, it was such a roller coaster, this and that and then all over again, it was so damn good, I absolutely fell more in love with this characters than I already was.

Honestly the suspense is killing me but this is just another phenomenal series. It’s not just sexy it’s intriguing as hell!!

Sebastian and Abbi are a perfect match!!

Nicki - The Overflowing Bookcase
No words that I add to this review will do this book justice. The chess match between Sebastian and Abbi could not be written better - this was simply a masterpiece. Emotional overload, heart wrenching realizations from Sebastian who has always hidden behind his walls, hot as hell sex scenes and the twists and turns the murders and suicides mysteries take just blows my mind. I was pulled in from the opening chapter and was shell shocked at the end to see where this story goes next. I wish I ...more

Dec 14, 2019 rated it it was amazing
Sebastian had to leave the country abruptly and was gone for over 2 weeks. It was the worst time for him to leave since he didn't have the opportunity to speak with Abbigail before leaving and he wasn't able to communicate with her frequently. He was very concern about the status of their relationship because he realized that he actually wanted something more meaningful with Abbi than just a physical relationship. This is obviously new territory for Sebastian and he was very unsure of what he ...more

The Shark's Edge series just keeps getting better. This is my favorite series of 2019!!

Shark's Pride kept me on the edge of my seat. This book takes Sebastian and Abigail on a new journey that is dangerous and thrilling. It is such a good read that I finished it in one sitting. I love that Shark's Pride kept me guessing and engaged.

In this book, Abigail and Sebastian are figuring out their relationship. Their one night of passion in book one (Shark's Edge) changed it all. They are both new to
Belle's Book Labyrinth
If you didn't think this would get more intense, you're wrong. Very wrong. I was literally put on edge reading the second book to Shark's Edge. Someone really wants to destroy Bass' reputation and bring down the Edge with him. Not only that, but now Abbie is in danger. Abbie is the light Bass never thought he needed and he's going to do whatever it takes to keep that light on, even if it might mean leaving him behind in the dark. There's still that tug of war going on between the two but what do ...more

If you ever wanted to go swimming with the Shark's then this is the series for you. Shark's Pride does not disappoint.

When you think everything is smooth sailing Bas get's an unexpected visitor that will flip his world upside down.

Bas and Abbi's banter is amazing to see and their chemistry is even hotter. But WHO want's to discredit this alpha male?

Keep your friends close, your enemies closer. Sebastian has come to the realization that there is a dangerous opponent in his midst but he cannot figure out who or what it is. He needs to figure that out double quick because he just doesn't have himself to protect, he now has Abbi to keep out of harm's way as well.

Shark's Pride is the second book of Shark's edge series by Angel Payne and Victoria Blue. As the first book shark's edge ended at a Cliffhanger so this book is the continuation of the first book. It can't be read stand-alone.

Abbigail thought that Sebastian was just interested in doing sex with her but later did she know that She was much more than just one night stands for Sebastian. He does everything to make her understand this that she is not any girl but his Abbigail and he did get

Shark’s Pride
By Angel Payne and Victoria Blue

Sebastian Shark’s life is heating up, in the boardroom and the bedroom!

“Connection. Salvation. Perfection. I’d die for it all. Fight for it all. And that plan started now. But first…this moment.”

Following closely with Shark’s Edge, we continue on with Abbigail’s and Sebastian’s journey together. With suspenseful and intense moments, heartfelt discoveries, and the craziest sexual tension around, Angel and Victoria do well at merging these two stories

This book was so intense I was literally biting my nails as I turned each and every page. Book one had some moments that kept me turning the pages, but book two was so much more.
Book two starts where one left off, with Sebastian and Abbi. Sebastian always seems to say the wrong thing at the wrong time so book two sees him groveling a bit. I loved every second of that. And he doesnt just buy her flowers and move on like every single man in every single romance book... he really hits the romance

Well, dang! Shark bite! After the first story I was all in for this one and it was enjoyable but it was up and down and running in circles for me. I was on the edge of my seat with the push/pull of the romance and the mysteries and secrets of Sebastian’s past. The Shark dominance continues with the smoking hot Sebastian and the innocent Abbigail moving full steam ahead with their romance, not without a few bumps along the way. The love fest between the older, experienced Bas as he teaches the ...more

The continuation of Sebastian and Abbi’s story takes readers on more of an intense journey that keeps one sucking in air while trying to stay afloat. I preferred this book to the first and it is not a standalone. The storyline picks up where the first book left off as Sebastian has to go away for business but the timing was less than optimal. He wonders why Abbi is a bit standoffish. Really Sebastian??!! Yet when all is said and done, with some sage advice from his sister Pia, Sebastian has ...more

Hidden enemies are tormenting Sebastian Shark. They’re determined to see his reputation and plans go to heck, and will stop at nothing to bury him. To make matters worse, his fiery Irish girlfriend Abbigail Gibson has written him off for good, choosing to believe their night of blistering passion was just another one of his playboy conquests. And who could blame her, after the sexy and powerful billionaire left her right after taking her virginity?

"What takes you to the edge of where you're comfortable, into the abyss of where you're afraid?"

For Bas and Abbi, it looks a bit like love.
Both are in uncharted territory and it shows!
Add in whoever is messing with Shark and you have a recipe for disaster.

I admit I'm a bit irritated with Abbi at the moment. Shark is far from perfect but I think he is trying harder than "its all about me" Abbi. Maybe I'm being a bit hard on her but she is slow on the uptake at times. When it takes a small side

If you thought that Angel and Victoria took us all for a wild ride with Shark's Edge, you ain't seen nothing yet!!! SHARK'S PRIDE has uppped the ante on everything that was seen in the first book. This story of Sebastian Shark and Abbigail Gibson is absolutely seamless, a masterstroke by two extremely talented authors.

SHARK'S PRIDE picks up two weeks after the events that took place at the conclusion of Shark's Edge. Two long weeks, where there has been infrequent

OH MY EVER LOVIN' HELL! I was completely in love & awe during Shark's Edge, but after reading Shark's Pride, the first book was just a warm up for things to come. And since Book 2 picks right back up where Book 1 ends, guess what?! YOU HAVE TO READ Shark's Edge (Book 1) FIRST!

Angel Payne and Victoria Blue have me wrapped up in this series!! It just keeps getting better. Shark's Pride continues where Shark's Edge left off and what a ride it is. It's two weeks after Sebastian had to leave without saying anything to Abigail. This makes both of them not know where they stand.

This book was AMAZING in so many ways!! We're along for the ride to see where Sebastian and Abigail's relationship goes plus their is an enemy in the midst trying to destroy
