Sweltering Hot Read
Hot from the very beginning, this book takes you on a fascinating trip into the world of submission.
Nestled away in Collington Creek, a small town north of Atlanta, Georgia, three people are heading for crash course of self discovery and healing. Along the way, they bring down barriers and heal agonizing wounds. Ragged Edge is filled with heart and soul. You are shown the true beauty and emotional bonding of a D/s relationship.
Dalton Shaw, owner/operator of Iron Cruisers, is a man with a painful past. Sorrow and disappointment has followed Dalton most of his life. Before returning home to Collington Creek, he lived in Atlanta and owned Second Circle, a fetish club. Getting tired of the training and the scene, he leaves his past behind him and settles into a quieter way of life. With his heart guarded and safe, he starts a no commitment relationship with an old friend of his, Cade Roberts. For years they have had a friends-with-benefits relationship, but after seeing the fire in Erin's eyes and her reaction to their D/s scene, he knows that he has been missing something for years, that she is a submissive.
Cade didn't know things could possibly get better. After he observed Erin's reaction to catching him and Dalton together, he has only one thing on his mind, he wants to include the lovely lady in their sexual encounters. Newly elected Sheriff, Cade is a busy man. His days are full of responsibility and duty. He finds his release with his Dom Dalton. For several years, they have had a fulfilling partnership, now he wants more. He has always been a lover of women and he believes he has found the perfect one for him and Dalton.
Erin Corvus moved to town from Texas to get away from the pain of heartache. She started Blackbird Design, her graphic-design company, and began a new life in the quaint town. She has been burned by men in the past and has no plans to get involved romantically with another one. She obviously didn't plan on two men pursuing her. Intrigued by the promise of amazing encounters with two sizzling men, she can't pass up the chance of no holds barred sex. She agrees to their offer, but on her terms: sex only.
Incredibly well written, Ragged Edge is about so much more than just BDSM. I enjoyed Ms. Brookes writing style. She seamlessly incorporated the characters' points of view and I actually felt their pain and love along the way. I felt the realism of the interactions between the characters. Their journey to fulfillment was touching and moving. Ms. Brookes wrote an incredible story and I look forward to her other books.

I¿ve read several books now by Sara Brookes and Ragged Edge is m
I’ve read several books now by Sara Brookes and Ragged Edge is my absolute favorite. The dynamics in this book is incredible. No meet, hop in bed and HEA in 24 hours or less here. The time span of the story takes place over several months so you know there is time for their relationship to evolve naturally. The character development of Dalton, Cade and Erin is very well detailed. They are all less than perfect filled insecurities and flaws that make them feel very real. No doubt there is a connection between all the characters but the author presents their story in such a way I instantly connected to them as well. Really, my favorite parts are their story. Yes the sex is hot (see below) but instead of feeling very rushed bits mixed between hot sex I felt Ms Brookes took her time to present their story in such a way that you can get to know the players as individuals instead of cardboard sex toys.Was this review helpful?

This is one HAWT book! So without further ado look forward to reading about M/M,. F/F, M/F and the best parts…M/F/M. There is also some BDSM, sex toys, bondage and anal play. The sexual heat will curl your toes. But it’s not all about the Spank-O-Vision or the bow-chica-wow-wow it’s the emotional connection between Dalton, Cade and Erin that makes the sex sizzling hot.
This book is a must read. I’m telling all my friends as I am tell you now
