On the Edge (Winter Games) by Dr. Rebecca Sharp
From International Bestselling Author, Dr. Rebecca Sharp, comes the new standalone in the Winter Games series.
Do. Not. Touch. Alice Ryder came with more warning signs than a museum exhibit. Under twenty-one. Best friend’s baby sister. Heartbroken. I was only supposed to keep an eye on her and keep my hands to myself. But her sunshine sucked me in. Why did she have to want me? Why did she have to want me to save her? I wasn’t her savior. I wasn’t the prince in her fairytale. I was only the asshole in shining armor.
For some, heartbreak becomes a habit. Losing so much had taught me that it’s easier to just give up the things you care about before they are taken. Because you can’t lose what you don’t have. I gave up the warmth of the sun and sand hoping that the cold, snowy mountains of Colorado would be able to numb whatever feelings I had left and bury the pieces of my heart under the frost. And then I met Emmett Jameson - the King of the Mountain and my brother’s best friend. He was cold and controlling - treating me like the child that I wasn’t. He was everything that promised to break what was left of me. And I needed him for it. My shattered heart would be safe wanting someone like him. Then again, heartbreak was my bad habit. On the Edge is a standalone novel and the second book in the Winter Games series.
I hate that this is the first book I’ve read from this author. It was a great read, loved the story line.
Emmitt and Ally’s story is what you would call hate to lovers. It was hate from Chapter 1, The King of the SnowmassHoles takes one look at the beautiful Ally and knows he is screwed and decides he was going to protect her, especially from him.
Emmitt is frustrated by his attraction for her. He thinks he doesn’t deserve her because of his past. Of course, he acts like a total douche to her; he’s kissing her one minute then the next he pushes her away. Actually, I felt like I want to hold him at some moments.
Ally gives attitude right back to Emmitt. She doesn’t understand why he insists on the push and pull with her. Ally has lost a few people in her life and she’s afraid to give him a chance. They definitely had my attention with the sexual tension between them. It was off the charts.
I recommend you buy this book. I’m looking forward to Chance’s Story. I can already feel the fireworks in that book.
