This was an awesome mature romance filled with so much emotion and intensity it left me breathless.

5 mindblowing wilderness options in Durango, Colorado - Matador ...

Lissie has spent her whole life trying to live up to her family’s expectations and always falling short. With the opportunity to move to Durango offers itself, she jumps on the chance for a couple of reasons. However, she wasn’t counting on an attraction to her big bulky biker landlord. When they learn what all they have in common, the door is open for something more and Lissie doesn’t hesitate to
Mindy Lou's Book Review
Incredible!! I'm always amazed when an author can take a past side character who is all kinds of messed up and turn them into such an incredible main character.

Yuma, our hero in Edge of Darkness, had some growing to do. He was a man who you can say is a typical young biker, who took full advantage of the alcohol and sex offered in that type of environment. When things went South in the first book, Edge of Reason, he hit rock bottom.

In Edge of Darkness, we see Yuma cleaned up but struggling. He

I’m a big fan of Freya Barker’s books and love everyone of them.
This one us one of my favorites by her. The storyline is different but so good.
I knew Freya would make me fall in love with Yuma. He had a troubled past, but she redeemed him.
Two people struggling and trying to overcome their demons.
Love how Yuma and Nosh’s relationship got better after the heartbreaking loss.
Yuma and Lissie were perfect for each other.

My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ STARS

I absolutely loved everything about this book. Everything.
Two damaged souls coming together and becoming stronger together. It was a beautiful thing to read.
Yuma and Lissie have quickly become two of my favorite characters Ms Barker has written to date.
This whole series just keeps getting better and better.

There are always certain things that you know you will get when you start a book: a hero who is damaged and the heroine who makes it her mission to save the hero.....but....what happens when both the hero and heroine have their own demons? Demons that they have to fight to be able to come together.

Both Yuma and Lissie have their fair share of demons they were battling....but when they “found” each other, holy smokes!!!!! Edge of Darkness was a FANTASTIC read! I turned the last page and kept loo

I don't know where to start with this. You see, I didn't hate it, but I really didn't like it.

All of the elements made sense... all the way through I kept putting the parts I didn't like to one side in the hope that the parts I did would out-weigh them.

I didn't mind Lissie.

I didn't like Yuma.

I didn't like the whole side-story with Red & Ginger. It added nothing... and devalued Yuma even more for me. I know that we got a visual from Trunk's story... bleghhh. It would've been better to have left

Freya does it again. Meet Lissie and Yuma. Ying and yang at first glance, but they actually have more in common than either of them know. Yuma has a past that even makes him blush, but somehow he is drawn to Lissie. He may think he will never deserve her...but he didn't know that they are more a like then ever. Then during his meeting...he here her voice.."hi. I am Lissie and I am an alcoholic." Whoa!! This is just the beginning of the loving, sexy, tortured relationship. I couldn't put this boo ...more

Valeen Robertson (Live Thru Books Blog)

Lissie and Yuma each have their own kinds of demons and damage. But they call to the other. Lissie the cop wants to heal the broken but healing biker, and Yuma the biker wants to protect his tough but sweet cop who's come to mean everything to him.

There's suspense, there are lots of emotional ups and downs, there's intense chemistry, all woven into an exciting, heart-tugging story that I fell in love with. Broken hero finding love is one of my favorite tropes, and no one does it quite like F

I CANNOT believe that Ms. Barker made me fall head-over-heels in love with Yuma! I didn't think I would like him, let alone LOVE him, but I should have known better....this IS Freya Barker we're talking about here! The little we know about Yuma prior to this book left me feeling a little antagonistic towards him, maybe even a little disgusted. After the first couple of chapters of Edge of Darkness, I started to think that maybe I was wrong. Long before the end of this book, I KNEW it...Yuma and ...more

I'll be honest after the glimpses of Yuma in previous books from Freya Barker, I wasn't his biggest fan. He seemed to take the biker lifestyle to the limit and live down to the expectations he'd come to know from family and MC brothers. When life hit the fan for him, he hit rock bottom, but Ms. Barker always finds a way to make the most broken, misunderstood characters shine when they get their own stories.

Yuma is a member of the Arrow’s Edge MC who handled the pain of his past in a destructive way and although he has turned his life around he knows that he needs to remain focused so he doesn’t revert back to the man he was.

Law enforcement is in Lizzie's blood but when she needed the support of those that she thought she could trust the most she realized that the only person she could depend on was herself. She is looking for a new beginning.

Yuma is managing the apartment where she is staying, and

Shelves: bikers
On the surface, Yuma and Lissie are a textbook case of opposites attract, but once you start to scratch that surface, it's clear that appearances are deceiving.

He is a biker used to living on the wrong side of the law doing what he wants when he wants to do it. Life's twists and turns pushed him too close to the edge until he found himself waking up at rock bottom looking for a little help and a whole lotta redemption.

She is the first female cop in a long line of law enforcement officers, and

Another great story! Yuma and Lissie seem an unlikely pair from the outside. They both have some similar struggles that they are dealing with. Yuma and Lissie are also not that likeable at times, in other books. It was great to see things from their point of views, and you could feel their sadness and strength come through the story. A kind of friends to lovers story with lots of drama and intrigue. Beautiful, hard fought story to their HEA.

I read this book without putting it down! It grabbed me right off the bat and held me tight. I couldn’t help but want to root for both Yuma and Lissie, you want good things to happen for both of them after all they have been through. You know it is never quite that easy though. There were definitely some sad parts in this book that had me choking up a little but if a book can make you feel both excited, happy and sad, it is just a credit to good writing!

Edge of Darkness is one of the best books I've read all year!

Lissie and Yuma are attracted to each other from almost the first moment they meet. Even though they've both gone through their own means to clean their lives up, their first several weeks together are perfect, until they're not.

Lissie runs into Ginger and Red while visiting the Arrow's Edge clubhouse, and Ginger tries to share her special relationship with Red and Yuma. Although Red shuts her down, and drags her out of the room, the w

Edge of Darkness is the second book in the Arrows Edge MC series written by the talented Freya Barker. If you have never read a book by Freya...shame on you!

We met Yuma (I believe) in Highway 550 (Rock Point #3) and Lissie in Edge of Reason (Arrows Edge MC #1). Their characters were in the background mostly, but you just knew there was some kind of darkness within them.

“Be careful, girl. There’s an edge of darkness on that one.”

The Tricky Second Book

Sometimes I think I do the second book in a series a disservice, particularly if I really liked the first one. I do this by reading the second book immediately. This is fine if it is a second book with an ongoing storyline revolving round the same main characters, but if it’s different characters I’m nearly always slightly disappointed. I always want to know how the characters from the first book are doing. I really need to disconnect before trying to enjoy hearing about ot

Edge of Darkness by Freya Barker
Arrow’s Edge MC #2

Two people that should have nothing in common find out that they are meant to be together in this second book of the Arrow’s Edge MC series.

Lissie is a career policewoman with generations of cops in her family. She has always felt she needs to prove she is as good as the men in her family and eventually has moved away from them for a number or very good reasons. Moving into the apartments Yuma manages puts them in close proximity. Yuma is a man

Yuma and Lizzie are total opposites with a lot of baggage. They share some baggage but is it enough that they can use it as a healing factor? When bodies start turning up Lizzie and Yuma combine resources to get to the bottom of it. Will they become victims before they find the killer? This romantic suspense will have you on the edge of your seat. The story is so descriptive you feel as though you are right there as this story unfolds.

I was seriously in a book funk, nothing seemed to grab me, but when the newest from Freya Barker became available for me I knew that funk was going to be over. Edge of Darkness was a fantastic read. Even though we met Yuma previously and was not seen as the best, I was immediately invested in his and Lissie’s story. Yuma definitely had his demons and a lot of baggage but I ended up adoring him.

Okay so let’s be honest for a moment. Assuming you read the previous stories, do you think you will like Yuma??? I didn’t think I would. I thought he would be an okay hero/love interest. Nothing special. Then I remembered that he went to rehab and I wondered if Freya would be able to make him shine.
She did it!
I am happy to report I ended up loving Yuma! Very much! And his pops. A man who seemed like a grump until you get to know him and remove the clear shiny shell off of him and get to the goo

4.25 stars--EDGE OF DARKNESS is the second instalment in Freya Barker’s contemporary, adult ARROW’S EDGE MC erotic, MC, romance series focusing on the members of the Arrow’s Edge MC. This is forty-year old, MC member James ‘Yuma’ Wells, and thirty-seven year old, detective Elizabeth ‘Lissie’ Bucco’s story line. EDGE OF DARKNESS can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty but I recommend reading the series in order for back story and cohesion where Yuma’s story begins.

Freya Barker's second installment of her Arrow's Edge Series does not disappoint. Her main character, Yuma, has appeared in several other of her previous stories and he is, to say the least, not the most obvious hero, but here we are. Barker redeems the somewhat shady gang member and pairs him with an unlikely love interest; a cop.
Lissie's debut into Barker's world was not without its own issues. As much as Yuma has been an under achiever, Lissie is his polar opposite as a female in a male domi

USA Today bestselling author Freya Barker loves writing about ordinary people with extraordinary stories.
Driven to make her books about 'real' people; she creates characters who are perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy, but just as deserving of romance, thrills and chills in their lives.
