Start your review of Grant's Flame (Shark's Edge, #5)
I don’t know where to begin.... The moment I finished Grant's Heat, I needed Grant's Flame so bad!

So... the moment I got it in my hands I devoured every single word... This would have to be my top read for 2020/2021. Hands down!

The emotions hit hard, the chemistry between these two is overwhelming and beautiful! The developing bond and love that is growing between Rio & Grant is intense and in my opinion not rushed or forced into the story. It flowed naturally.

The passion and heat were meltin

I vow to never leave your side...

Grant and Rio's relationship is one of torment and intense passion. Rio needs someone who understands the mental torture she is experiencing with her feeling of loss. Grant wants to be that person for her. He is doing all he can to guide her back to her world before everything went horribly wrong. He takes Rio on a cruise with just the two of them hoping the serene setting will give her the quiet solitude she needs to work through her destructive issues without d

OMG this book was as hot as the nickname BLAZE that Grant has for Rio. Angel Payne and Victoria Blue went above and beyond bringing out the chemistry these two obviously share. Their relationship is filled with pain and more pain. They struggle with their feelings for one another so close to the death of Rio's husband. She has extreme guilt because of the way she feels about Grant and I think it is because she didn't have those intense feelings for her husband. Their relationship was comfortable ...more

This man can light him and me on fire anytime he wants to. The book isn’t even out yet and I’m already needing these two to hand over the next one! Talk about emotional overdrive.. I just don’t even know what to say at this point. It was everything I could have possibly needed it to be and so very much more. Yet at the same time not enough since I wasn’t ready for it to end. Why do I torture myself when I know my nerdy bookwhorish self will want more?! If you haven’t started this series (pleasee ...more

Perfect mix of emotions and chemistry.

This book is seriously amazing, it has a lot of emotion so many emotions, it wraps you around every page, every word, every tear and then there’s of course all the steamy moments, those are top of the thermostat hot.
And OMG Grant is a dream, he is everything, he is just as sweet as he is dominant, the chemistry between him and Rio is out of this world.
This book perfectly describes the struggles of mental health issues and how we fight to deal with them, Ang

This book!! Grant & Rio are my absolute favorite. I can relate with Rio in more ways than most female leads in books. Victoria & Angel are knocking out out of the park with their story. I'll be over here impatiently waiting for the next book. ...more

This is book #5 in the incredible Shark's Edge series, and they do need to be read in order. This book continues the tumultuous, fiery journey of Rio Gibson, and Grant Twombley. They are two puzzle pieces that fit together despite their many differences. Grant is one amazing alpha who wants to keep Rio happy and safe. He is endearing in his plans to help the woman he loves, and is so sexy and swoon worthy. Every woman needs a Grant on their side. Rio is one complicated bundle of woman with some ...more

Grant’s Flame

The long awaited 5th book of the Shark’s Edge Series, Grant’s Flame, was more than I ever expected it could be! With how book 4 ended, we the reader, have been left to contemplate where these brilliant women would take us next! The emotional journey that Rio has to take in this book is excruciatingly heartbreaking. Her self discovery is messy, difficult to read and liberating at the same time. So many of her a-ha moments resonated with me on some level. On some level, I believe many

Grant's Flame is so intense and emotional that is impossible to put down. Grant and Rio are such complex characters and it just gets more addicting to dive into their feelings with every book!

In this book, Grant starts off in the friend zone. Rio is going through so much and I appreciate how both authors handle the topic of mental health. Rio has so many inner demons that make her push Grant away in a romantic way. Grant is not giving up though. His persistence, compassion, and patience make him

This is the fifth book in the Shark’s Edge series and one I have been eagerly awaiting. It is not a standalone and picks up from where book four left off. Grant has whisked Rio to Hawaii for some rest and relaxation that she desperately needs. These two have had a connection from the start and the intensity has grown. However, when the unexpected takes place, will Rio step up? This book is brilliance at its best as the authors take readers and delve into a journey that, for Rio, is fraught with ...more

Grant and Rio's attraction grows in this book. Grant saved Rio from the hospital, and he whisked her away on a yacht heading toward Honolulu. But trying to get Rio to understand how much Grant loves her and needs her to be well is a whole new ballgame. The attraction between them cannot be ignored.

Yet Rio is terrified.

Terrified of losing herself to her demons.
Terrified of letting Grant get too close.
Terrified of falling in love with him.

How can the two of them live and breathe without each o

If its been awhile since you read Grant's Heat, might want to re-read it so your caught up and have a nose dive into Grant's Flame.
This one continues to follow the journey of Rio and Grant. And while you will want to ring a few necks, **cough BAS!** you slowly get to the bottom of the torture Rio is going through in her own head.

However, in true Victoria Blue and Angel Payne fashion, they left us on a cliffhanger that not only baffles you but might also piss you off. Will everything fall into

Amazing! This story of Grant and Rio is off the chain. The chemistry is one for the record books. Grant tries to keep Rio from self destructing by taking her away from the madness. Rio is fighting demons-most recently her husbands death. Can she let Grant in and let him help her? Can Grant be the one to get Rio to see she is more than damaged goods. These two really can’t keep their hands off each other. One step forward than something triggers Rio and it’s one step back. Will this trip be every ...more

I have absolutely enjoyed reading about Rio and Grant. Grant is so fully invested in helping blaze pull through her loss of her husband that he takes her out of the facility and sails away to Hawaii with her just to give her the time she need to put herself back together. Rio spends so much time fighting her urges to be fully attracted to grand the tree.but it seems the closer they get to Hawaii the closer they get to each other. He seems to really good for her mental health. After some time in ...more

No guts, no glory. Grant has it in spades.

How to handle a distraught woman with pyromania tendencies and help her through it all. Abscond with her and tell no one.

Grant has his hands full but his heart helps carry the burden. Rio is in deep and only he can bring her out. Miles of ocean, talks, battles and love seem to be the answer they need.

But can it survive the danger they face?

I love the story and Grant most of all. Rio, I have issues with that I just know Angel and Victoria will help resolv

Once I started this book I couldn’t put it down. Grant and Rio have amazing chemistry and things sure get hot. Grant tries to help Rio through her mental health issues but Rio is in denial. They both ignore the chemistry as long as they can but eventually give in to the demands of their desires. Angel and Victoria continue to outdo themselves with the books they co-write! Definitely a book with all the feels, especially with the mental health issues being covered. I was lucky enough to receive a ...more

Grant is trying to protect Rio but she is facing her own demons. I love how no matter how much Rio challenges Grant, he doesn't give up on her. What an emotionally charged book that will keep you wondering what will happen next. The title is so fitting with everything Grant and Rio face in this 5th installment. Victoria Blue and Angel Payne have out done themselves again. The book is so well written that I can feel the emotion and intensity between the characters. A definite must read book that ...more

There isn't a more alluring, riveting, brilliant book than this one!!

This book has more depth to Grant and Rio. You can see their relationship start to really blossom in this book as well. The build-up was strong and the cliffhanger was EVERYTHING! The writing was phenomenal and the storyline keeps getting better and better with each new book!

I have been anxiously awaiting this book and it definitely did not disappoint. First of all, the chemistry between Rio and Grant is five alarm bell hot! I loved seeing the connection between the two of them grow. I also enjoyed seeing the two sides of each character. He, gentle and caring but also dominating. And she, broken and aggressive but also vulnerable. Angel and Victoria, I greatly loved this book and can not wait for Grant’s Blaze!
Nicki - The Overflowing Bookcase
With edge of your seat drama and high emotional overload this book should not be missed. From the opening pages until the very last paragraph Angel Payne and Victoria Blue prove once again that they can captivate the reader in an instant. Between Grant's need to protect Rio and Rios intense mental health abilities this book left me breathless. I so wanted them to get the HEA, but there is more than inner turmoil keeping these two apart. I cannot wait for the next book!! ...more

After helping her escape from the hospital, Grant whisks Rio away on a yacht to Hawaii. She still has to work through her issues but Grant is hoping to work on “them” too.
What’s not to love about this book? A big strong man to help ease away your troubles? Sign me up, am I right? The whole book ends with a big cliff hanger on top of a cliff hanger sure to keep you coming back for book six.
A big thanks to Bare Naked Words for providing me with an ARC of this book.

Soul touching! The story of Grant Twombley and Rio Gibson has always had combustion this however takes it another level. Risking everything Grant takes Rio to be her refuge to help her see some will be there. The intimate moments with the share demons with each other made the book - the attention given to mental health is more than applaudable. Victoria Blue and Angel Payne rock when it comes to capturing the essence of the soul. I so need the next book, yesterday!

WOW!!! This book has left me speechless! The story of Grant and Rio continues in book 5 of the Shark's Edge series. So much turmoil and love is taken to the high seas. This book is full of emotion. Passion, anger, rage, love fill every page with everything Grant and Rio are going through. But the ending leaves us on a cliff hanger like no other.

I highly recommend reading this series in order and can not wait for the next book!

Grant sneaks Rio off to Hawaii for some much needed R &R.

On the way back to LA, Grant gets kidnapped by some pirates.

Can Rio do what Grant asked of her? Be Strong? Be Brave?

Giant's Flame was so hot, I thought I was going to burst into a flame myself.

You need a fan while reading this one ladies. I can give it nothing less than 5 stars.

This book started off exactly where the last one ended, making it seem as if no time had passed. Grant is in so deep with Blaze and he really is in over his head yet his passion for her can't seem to be controlled. Blaze is in need of help though and this story portrayed this all so well. I cannot wait for the next book to see what happens as there was a doozy of a twist I did not see coming! ...more
