About THE FARTHEST EDGE (Erotic Romance Releasing June 6, 2017):

Step into the Honey Club, where every sensual boundary will be tested in search of the ultimate pleasure…

Branch doesn’t exist. Living off the grid, he’s looking for a way to forget his past and the guilt that plagues him. But no woman has ever been able to bring him to the edge he craves.
After a traumatic experience of her own, Evangeline stepped away from the decadent world of the Honey Club. But when she gets Branch’s offer—to play without boundaries or commitments—it’s too tempting for her to refuse.

As their passion ignites, Evangeline and Branch push each other to their farthest limit, fulfilling their darkest desires while falling harder and deeper than they ever imagined.

Review


Kristen Ashley has done it again.  Holy hotness Batman!  This book literally melted my panties.  While I enjoyed The Deep End, book one, I absolutely loved this one.  There are a lot of feels in this book that caught me off guard.  I’ve ended up in tears with many of Ashley’s books; I just didn’t expect to end up in tears with this one.  I thought, hey it’s erotica it’ll just get me all hot and bothered.  Nope this book made me feel and feel hard.

If you’ve read The Deep End, you’ve heard about Evangeline.  She got the raw end of the deal in a scene that went bad.  Since then she’s been guarded, checked out of the life, and she while she wants to reconnect with friends—the life isn’t something she’s expecting to return to.  Her friend and club owner Aryas, though, he knows just how to tempt her.  Branch is enigmatic, extremely private, and an alpha to the core.  He’s brooding, assertive, and unapologetic.  She’s sweet, determined, and ready to fight for him.  The chemistry between these two is so fucking hot.  Both Branch and Evangeline are extremely well-written, well-developed, and complex.

This book has its drama but it’s so skillfully woven into the story that it’s not glaring or over-the-top.  While I know that The Deep End has set her fan on opposite sides of the series, I think this is one that all fans can really enjoy.  Since most of the info dump about the club and how it works took place in book one, The Farthest Edge is almost purely about the relationship between Branch and Evangeline.  And besides the fact that Branch likes to submit, it is very much like her other stories. 


If you haven’t given this series a try, I highly recommend it especially this book.  If you’re an Ashley fan, definitely one-click it.  -Peace and love, Buxom J

And don’t miss the first standalone title in the Honey Series,
THE DEEP END!

Excerpt:

Aryas knew her.
He knew what she liked.
He knew how she played.
He knew exactly what would make her squirm in her seat.
And he knew precisely how long it had been since she’d had her kink.
“You’re throwing down the gauntlet,” she accused quietly.
“You feel like picking up the glove?” he shot back, shaking the piece of paper at her.
She stared into Aryas’s eyes.
No strings.
Anything she wanted to do to get him off.
When he was done with her, he’d vanish from her life.
Her gaze dropped to the paper.
“Be you, and we’ll make it interesting, lay five grand on that fucker, he’ll give you one go and then he’ll move on,” Aryas pushed, but it was a dare.
She looked back at him.
A dare.
Yes, he knew her.
“No reflection on you and your skills, which are sublime, my beautiful baby.” He grinned wicked grin. “Just that this guy is unbreakable. There’s no edge for him any Domme can get anywhere near to push him off and that’s what he’s looking for. Being taken to the farthest edge and shoved right the fuck over.”
Taken to the farthest edge.
Evangeline was not into that. She wasn’t into extreme. Not like many who were into that in the life.
No, the edges she coasted were exactly what Aryas wasn’t quite saying, but she read this guy couldn’t handle.
Unless he had the right Mistress to lead the way.
Damn it all, she was getting wet.
“Five grand?” she snapped.
Aryas pressed his lips together and she was too peeved to get more peeved that he did it to suppress his amusement.
He unpressed them to confirm, “Five grand. But Leenie, babe, just to get it straight, he walks away from you at first meet, we’re even. It’s only if you get a crack at him the bet is on.”
She lifted her nose at the same time she snatched the paper from his hand, declaring, “He won’t walk away.”
“He might,” Aryas said gently, and his sudden loss of humor and careful tone made her focus on him again. “Beware of that. He’s done it before. In some ways, he doesn’t give a shit about anything. In some ways, he can be frustratingly choosy.”
“If I want him, he walks away, I’ll still get him,” she announced.

         


    About Kristen Ashley:

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorizeand she hadn't taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen's Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning. Nothing's changed. Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she's blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched). Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up. And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
