Mindy Lou's Book Review
One of the biggest reasons I love this author's work is how much heart she puts in her stories. She has no problem tackling heavy subjects and making these characters easy to relate to even if I've never experienced anything they have. I fall hard for them every time.

Trunk (Titus) is such a hardened hero. He's dealt with so much from the time he was a small child that by the time he's an adult, he's got a big old chip on his shoulder. You would think that would make him hard to like. Trunk is ac

I heart this author big time! And I loved these characters!! It's refreshing to read about mature adults being in relationships and not being dickheads. There's none of that unnecessary drama-for-the-sake-of-drama bullshit, and I love that when this hero is all in, he's all in!

This was so well written, and I just loved Trunk and Jaimie. They were so good for each other, and the family they created made me smile huge 😁

Can't wait to read the next one in this series...

I like this author but but her books are hit or miss for me. And this book is pretty middle of the road this time around.

What I liked:
*I love that this author features more mature characters in her books . These were H (45) and h (38). They both behaved like mature adults. I also really like that they are an interracial couple. H is black, h is white.

*I liked the secondary characters especially the h's mom and baby son. So much cute!

*The romance was nice once things got rolling. And it was very

When Jaimie and Trunk come together at first, they barely connect. They've both got baggage. She in the form of distrust of men and being a single mom, and he because of his past. He comes across as grumpy and monosyllabic, and she comes across as almost too tough, at first. But once they start letting each other in, it's as if the walls come tumbling down and their true natures shine through.



I loved Jaimie and Trunk together. Their story is a bit heart-tugging, it's fast-paced and full of c

DNF. The story dragged and was dry. No gut.
It felt as if there were more scenes with the couple apart than together.
I was unable to connect.
Great premise, poor execution.
There are too many other books I want to read and my time is precious. I gave this one many chances.
So much explanation about every secondary character that it took away from the hero and heroine. Let’s stick to the MCs and then worry about the secondary characters.
Reading is subjective. You may love this book. This is my opin

I was so excited to read Trunk’s story and Ms. Barker did not disappoint.


description


Trunk is broody and a bit standoffish, especially when it comes to Jaimie. But when he lets himself take a chance with her, he falls fast and hard. With a strong protective instinct, he often makes decisions before discussing them with her and they have a bit of a learning curve to figure out how to manage this issue.

Jaimie is a strong independent heroine but she’s also got scars from the way her ex treated her. She doesn’t

5 star Review Edge of Reason (Arrow’s Edge MC #1) by Freya Barker

Freya Barker is a relatively new author to me. As with the other books I have read, this one was well written, with strong characters that you cannot help but become invested in and are easy to relate too.

Trunk (Titus) Rae has had a hard life but there is so much more to him than what is on the outside. He appears as tough as nails hard, and at times almost rude and abrupt. But underneath it all is a man who has been hurt, a man w

Titus Maximus Rae aka “Trunk” met his match with Jaimie. Where Trunk is all hard edged, brooding and silent...Jaimie is sweet and soft with a core of steel.
I’ll be honest, I was worried I wouldn’t like Trunk. He was so surely. So broody. I never thought I’d fall for him. But I did. Hard. Every time he called Jaimie “little mama” I swooned. Every. Time.

Once again, Ms. Barker proves herself to be the master at building characters that are so real and so vivid, they seem to step off the page. Trunk is all you want in a romance hero -the hardened tough guy with the soul of a knight. The story is gripping, raw, real, and threaded with beauty. Simply wonderful.

Wow! I love her books, but this one is especially top notch. There’s a lot to deal with here. Trunk and Jamie face many hurdles. The road to their HEA is especially beautiful. There’s lots of heavy drama and suspense. So well written. I can’t wait for the next one.

Jamie and Trunk were first introduced in Tracking Tahlula (part of the On Call series) and I was immediately wondering when their story would be coming our way. Fortunately we didn't have long to wait! Do not feel that you need to read Tahlula's story first as Trunk and Jamie's backstories are explained in Edge of Reason- but I will certainly recommend it if you haven't already read it ;-)

Jamie was too trusting once and it brought her nothing but misery... well almost nothing. She has 1

Yay... The Arrow's Edge MC is getting a series..... I am so excited. For a seasoned Barker reader, we have had a few peeks at this great group of men, who have turned their club into a legal entity who thrived on the feeling of family and brotherhood that an MC provided to wandering souls. But they have added another depth by helping troubled boys find a respectable path. For a new Barker reader, you will be able to read along and understand the MC without feeling lost, but I bet you will be loo ...more

Holy cow! This world that Freya Barker has created is amazing!! While this is the first of the Arrows Edge MC series, we have "met" the characters from the previous books that revolve around Durango, CO. TBH I would just read the previous books how they dropped, as, yes, they are different series, but they also sort of build on each other. We get to see so many key players from the previous stories, that it could be a bit confusing when just reading this before any th

Oh, mercy. I have never shied away from my love of Freya Barker and her amazing stories. This book was no exception to my love for her and her stories.

I've wanted Trunk's story since Tracking Tahlula. I knew there was something there. I never expected him to be such an amazing hero. He was tasked with protecting Tahlula in the past book, but now, we get his story. He's the protector of his MC as well. I loved watching him look over everyone. I loved the man and how fierce he fought for those he

Trunk and Jamie's story will touch your heart and have you cheering for them on their road to a happily ever after. They have a lot of hurdles to get through before they get there but the story and their journey is a refreshing one to read. Freya has a way of telling stories that have you feeling like you are right there with the characters. You can see and almost feel the everything that they are experiencing.

Wow! What a fantabulous book! Two characters so full of powerful emotions living through some serious drama and a little heartache en route to their HEA/HFN. There were children involved in this story, making it ten-fold more heart-wrenching and beautiful. I was so glad to see these two get their own story after Tracking Tahlula and I cannot wait to see what is next from Ms. Barker. What a talented author!

I've loved everything I've read by Ms. Barker and I get super excited when she starts a new series. Edge of Reason is the first book in her new Arrow's Edge MC series. The reader has seen several of the members in some of her other books and I cannot wait to see who gets their stories. Trunk, the hero of this book, was introduced as Tahlulah's overpro ...more

#thanks for the ARC #ilovedurango #arrowsedgemc

Oh yeah, this one is hard stuff. Nearly blasted my marriage :)
I wasn't able to put the book aside. Laundry ? What ? Not yet...just 150 Pages to go....
Dishes ? What? Never mind just 10 Pages to go...
Now I'm finished and Hubby is soothed, thank God.

Just searching for a word..... And I noticed that every word sucks. Yes, this book is a so - called interracial - romantic - suspense. Whoa, and that’s the problem in general (and the theme of this book.).

Another incredible read

Edge of Reason is a fantastic start to the Arrow’s Edge MC series.
As always, Freya Barker doesn’t disappoint.

The storyline revolves around Jaime, a feisty thirty-eight-year-old who has recently moves to Durango with her baby, River, after taking a job to work for Tahlula Rae, a famous author.

Trunk is a member of Arrow’s Edge MC and Tahlula’s brother. He’s a psychologist who helps out troubled adolescent boys the club takes in and mentors, as well as a confidant-slash-voic
