As one of the few female bounty hunters in the country and with a nickname like Edge, she enjoyed living on the edge and always got her man. One way or another. As an executioner for her shifter clan she was relentless, but finding a mate was not something on her radar, having to hunt him down and execute him even less so.
But could she trust her instincts?
Ethan Graves was a hunted man, not quite a man but a Leo of his kind. When he found out he was hunted by a sexy bounty hunter, he let himself be caught. He just had to convince her of his innocence before she killed him, then confess to wanting her as his mate.
But could he trust his instincts?
It's always fun to read a story about a strong-willed female in a male dominated profession, and Living on the Edge is that kind of story. While trying to apprehend Ethan Graves, Edge finds out than something is not quite kosher with this pick-up. Deciding to help rather than simply apprehend him, they develop more than just a working relationship in the process. The story is actually very plausible and extremely fun as a result, with plenty of action. In addition, there is a nice little mysterious twist to the ending as a bonus
Ms. Thompson's writing style is crisp, and her dialogue is very sharp and quick-witted. I like the chemistry between the hero and heroine, which is sizzling hot from the outset even though they both try hard to resist. Ms. Thompson knows how to write a love-scene and is not afraid to express herself honestly. Before the end of the book, we see Ethan and Edge having more than just their shapeshifter backgrounds in common. Most of the fun dialogue seems to go to the men in today's books, it is nice to see the witty repartee being attributed to a female as well this time. Kudos to Ms. Thompson for penning a dynamic heroine more than capable of handling any situation that arises!
