Start your review of Shark's Edge

You all thought you’d seen the best of these two authors... well, the best is yet to come!!

Shark’s Edge is phenomenal. A mixture of suspense, passion, mystery, and of course romance. From page one till the very end, I was on the edge of my seat. I couldn’t help but fall in love with these characters and I’m so deeply invested in these characters lives, and the world the authors have created. Completely addicted!

None of you are ready for Shark’s Edge. It’s about to take you on the start of what promises to b
I read an excerpt on Bookish First and the hero uses the term "cuck" to describe another character in his first chapter, so hard pass.

Individually their writing is brilliant but, teamed up together it seems as if Angel Payne and Victoria Blue are giving us another Series to sink are teeth into and fall in love with.
Sebastian Shark is a beautifully complex man that you instantly fall in love with despite his harshness and Abbigail Gibson has fierce sass that will just make you laugh out loud.
Ladies you hit it out of the park again. I can't wait until the next one.

Wow! Blown away! Amazing! Phenomenal! Brilliant! Shark’s Edge is the incredible start to what is sure to be an epic series. I couldn’t put it down and read it all in one sitting! There is something for everyone in this book. Mystery, suspense, romance. All of the feels are here. I absolutely loved it. Kudos to Angel Payne and Victoria Blue.

The first two chapters definitely give you a successful feel for the main characters. You can tell Abbi is young, driven, smart, and inexperienced. Mr. Shark on the other hand; very experienced, arrogant, rude, smart, driven, cold, and confident. There's chemistry, intrigue, mystery, and complication, most of what I look for in a contemporary romance! The dynamic between the main and supporting characters is important and something I truly love to see. I already love Grant. Looking forward to f ...more

Mhmm, as the title of the review goes. I love both of these authors and when they combine writing it's even better. I couldn't put the 37 pages of the first look down read it all and I want so much much more. Each character is written so well you can picture exactly what they look like and sound like and even their personality. I love it when books have so much detail it's like your in the book watching these characters in their lives. I would love to read the whole and will most likely be purch ...more

Shark definitely has some "edge". Victoria and Angel wrote another great story and they make a fine pair. Sebastian is every womans fantasy. Hes handsome, a successful billionaire, has a darkness and the total bad boy vibe. He likes control which isnt everyones cup of tea but its definitely mine. Abbigail is the woman he never knew he wanted. Shes a red haired goddess, young, driven, witty, smart and very sassy but there is one thing he's not prepared for. They are trying to figure out what's go ...more

I don't even know where to begin, I read this book in a matter of a few hours; I could not put it down. I loved the build up of the characters and the story, yes it is cliffhanger but it is a series and I'm already dying to read the next book. I love how the relationship between Abbi and Sebastian unfolds in this book, and I love how the authors built the characters and gave them depth. Abbi is a young woman with big dreams in California, whereas Bas is already a highly successful businessman; a ...more

I have been waiting to read this first book and this series since I first heard about it. I love both of these authors so I already envisioned it would be fabulous and after reading the first few chapters I was right.

Abbigail has a catering company that is new and looking to take on the "big" client to cement their future. She also builds walls to protect herself.

Sebastian Shark is the ultimate high power business man with the arrogance that goes with it. His dream is to

Sebastian Shark is aptly named. He's a dynamic, ruthless businessman who always gets what he wants. Abbigail is a young entrepreneur who wants nothing more than to escape his glacial gaze and cutting commentary.

Abbigail's efforts to stay invisible are futile. Sebastian has already noticed her, and he's trying to behave. But behaving is completely out of character for him, and he relentlessly pursues her.

Intoxicating kisses, brazen teasing, and thinly veiled blackmail lure Abbi into the wolf's

This Mature read was 300+ pages of mental foreplay. Whew. This author knows how to write really good sexual tension. I really enjoyed the playfulness between Mr. Shark and 'Little Red', pun intended. The sassiness between them both was EPIC and perfect in its own way!

Mr. Shark is definitely an A**hole and needs a real actual relationship with Abbigail to fix some of his issues surrounding 'love' and what love can actually be for him. He grew up with a shitty Father and had to raise h

The chemistry between Sebastian and Abbigail is off the charts. I love the staunch impression he leaves her with at first and what he melds into as the story progresses. With the food poisoning and the letter he receives, Bas and Abbi have a chance to grow together.
The style of writing is captivating. I stopped reading only because my eyes were falling shut of their own accord. Even though this book is 300+ pages, it can totally be done in one sitting.
The only downfall is the way it ended. It

I won a paperback from bookish first

My first read by either author
The whole book kind of had me on edge. From who the heck was messing with Sebastian to OMG the sexual chemistry.
Abigail has it bad for Sebastian and every time she's near him, her brain in is a fog. Sebastian keeps his cool like always, however he's fighting internally.
How do two grown adults who have a very heated attraction to be another act when they are near each other? Abigail tends to loose some

Wow! Shark’s Edge has everything, suspense, mystery, and sexiness. Sebastian Shark lives up to his name being a predator in the business world and in the bedroom. His sites are set on Abbigail, who has had multiple fantasies about him too. Sexy flirtation.. Supportive and realistic secondary characters (not everyone likes everyone). And a funny Siri appearance (I laughed when Sebastian called on Siri. A sexy ending that will leave you dangling from the cliff by your fingernails. I cannot wait to ...more
DNF at 16%.

Love the cover but that's where it ends for me. Ridiculous caricatures, billionaire businessmen speaking like 15 year old boys. so-called 'friends' who are more like enemies. CEOs who think they can terminate contracts without just cause. Yawn.

This may appeal to those who love a good angst YA/NA billionaire power play but Christian Grey got exposed as a whiny cry-baby and imitating that kind of arrogant, bossy, little-boy-lost character is like six years out of

OMG! OMG! OMG! I thought I had read the best of Angel Payne and Victoria Blue in past series. Well, Shark's Edge has me questioning myself on that.
This is a scorcher ladies! It burns hotter than 40 hells .
Shark's Edge is...Suspenseful. Exhilarating. Dramatic. Romantic. It had my emotions in a rollercoaster throughout the whole book. But I loved Every. Single. Minute. I mean, given the review I have, how can I give less than 5 stars? It's phenomenal. I loved this book so much. I'm sure you will

Little Red Riding Hood meets the Big Bad Bas.

This is first book in what is going to be an amazing series by Angel and Victoria.

Abbi is a sweet young girl who has fantasies about Sebastian.
Sebastian is a ruthless, dominating no holds bars businessman who can't seem to control himself every time he sees Abbi.

Sharks Edge will keep you on the edge of your seat as these two battle back and forth until they each get want they want.

This is defiantly a MUST rea

My only thought, as I just finished this book, is how long I have to wait until I can get the next one. Those couple of pages we get of a sneak peak at the end was just not enough. This has to be my favorite yet by these authors. Full of intrigue, mystery, lust, and hot demands... there’s no going wrong with this story. The character development and growth was amazing. I can’t wait for more! I’ve officially swam with the Shark and there’s no getting out of the deep waters now.

Sebastian is a powerful man and Abbigail is the “lunch lady” who owns and brings his lunch to him everyday. Sebastian is not a relationship type of man, but for some reason he has become obsessed with her. Little does he know that his precious little red riding hood is a virgin and this is a huge fear of his, but is she worth it. Can he let her walk away to his biggest enemy? Only time will tell.

I don’t even know where to start. Sebastian is this powerful force and Abigail sees this from the beginning. He lives up to his name and is a shark when it comes to business and how he wants things done. Abigail has no idea what is in store for her. I can’t wait for the next one to see what happens not just with these two but also Shark’s Edge which is his dream to build.
