Sharp words. Luscious curves. Killer sniper skills.
I had been in lust with Ava from the moment she'd taken my ass to the mat in a training session.
I had been in love with her since she single-handedly saved a mission that had gone FUBAR, getting herself and her team out unscathed.
She, meanwhile, had been in hate with me the entire time I'd known her.
All the sharp words.
All the dark glares.
Hot, secret kisses.
But KTS, the secret military agency I worked for, the group that existed by oftentimes walking the line of legality, was in utter disarray.
We had a traitor in our midst.
One that put our mission in jeopardy. One made us forget all about that mission . . .
Because suddenly we were in a fight for our lives.
5 out of 5 (exceptional)
RIDING THE EDGE is the first book in the KTS series, and we start off with one helluva story! Dan and Ava had a 'moment' two years ago. Okay, the moment lasted for a week, but nothing since then as Ava firmly pulled up the drawbridge and made sure Dan couldn't climb her walls. Unfortunately for her, Dan is as stubborn as they come, and plays a long game, as he continues to worship her from afar. Add into that betrayal, families gone wrong, action, and all other sorts of craziness, and you've got a story to keep you enticed!
I love how Elise Faber writes. Her style is smooth and will keep you on the edge of your seat in all the right places. This is a slow-burn romance as it simply wouldn't work in the circumstances for anything else. And I loved that. I loved how she played it out, keeping them - and me - wondering what would happen next.
Although this is classed as book one, I do feel like I need Laila and Ryker's story, plus what's the downlow on Daniel? Honestly, I need more! And that, my friends, is the sign of a brilliant author and a greedy reader.
The last chapter leads you nicely onto the next book, which I cannot wait to read. If you like slow burn romance with plenty of sass, then I can absolutely recommend this book, and I'm sure the whole series!
