Along the edge of danger, the next step might be the last ...

A woman without a past
Left amnesiac after an accident, Amelia Jamison’s instincts slowly rise from the depths of oblivion to question her life as the wife of a cold, manipulating, and distant man. Wisps of a dream show her another man she may have known intimately, but is he a memory, or a figment of her imagination?

A man with too much information
After many undercover aliases, today Gerard Besson is simply a police commissaire in Marseille. When a mysterious woman starts to follow him, he is suspicious. But things aren’t what they seem, and as he reluctantly gets closer to her, dredges of his painful, buried past spring to light and make him question her identity.

Each seems to have led two different lives …
But neither is prepared for what awaits them when they cross the fine line between knowing your true self and that of your alter ego.
Danger is the name of the game, and as it catches up with them in the French Provence, both know they better be ready for the inevitable fall, especially as both their hearts get tangled on the line …

Walking The Edge is my first book by Zee Monodee. Give me more! Ms Monodee has delivered a well written book. Gerard and Fey's story is a fast paced nail biter. The characters are fantastic and made this book amazing. There is plenty of action, suspense and sizzle to keep the pages turning. I enjoyed Walking The Edge and look forward to reading more from Zee Monodee in the future. Walking The Edge is book 1 of the Corpus Brides Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

4.5 Stars She woke up without a past, without a memory of who she was, what kind of person she was, who loved her and who wanted her gone. The cold stranger in front of her told her she was Amelia, his wife, but nothing about this man was familiar and he ruled with an iron fist and an arsenal of drugs to keep her under control. Somewhere in the back of her mind were fleeting thoughts, or ghosts of thoughts, a man, a life, and love. Nothing like the sterile and cold world she lives in now, complete with a bodyguard and a credit card for her only “friends.” Firing synapses, more flashes of another life, knowledge of things she shouldn’t know and dark shadows she cannot bring to the light. It all revolved around Marseille and the man in her past, a man who was not her husband. Gerard Besson now lives life as a police commissaire, but there was a time when he lived many other lives and found a woman who stole his heart, but she died violently, her body was unrecognizable. His painful memory was re-opened when a strange woman contacts him, saying she doesn’t know how, but she knows him and he is important to her past. While he doesn’t know what to think, there is something about her that draws him like a magnet. And with that magnet comes deadly danger as they play a lethal game of cat and mouse with a group with more power than they could imagine. Amelia’s damaged memory holds secrets, dangerous secrets and there are those who want to use her or kill her, but there will be no in between. How far will she go to unlock her past? What will she find and where does Gerard fit in? Be prepared for intense action, intense emotions and a thriller that is more twisted than a Gordian knot. Walking the Edge by Zee Monodee is dark, filled with mystery and the crumbs left by the author lead only to the next scene. You will find yourself asking, how dark are dark ops? How much money does it take to play Chess with the lives of many? Who can be trusted and who is lying? Discover the answers to the mystery that is Amelia’s past, but come prepared to stay out of the line of fire. If you like mystery/thrillers, spy versus spy reading and a race to the finish line with high stakes on the line, Zee Monodee has that and more in her raw and bold tale of the race for the truth. I received this copy from Zee Monodee in exchange for my honest review.

This is one of those books that I wish I just hadn't picked up. The writing wasn't horrible but something was missing and it ended up just irritating me. I don't believe that I'll be grabbing the next one in the series or another one by this author at this point. I was really excited to get this one, I found the blurb intriguing: a woman with amnesia, an abusive "husband", stirring dreams about a mystery man and killer skills that the amnesiac doesn't know how she acquired. Unfortunately, the blurb was the most exciting thing about the book for me. When you first start the story, you're thrown into Amelia's life while she's trying to figure out who she is and where she fits into the world. That was pretty interesting. I could sense a fire burning within her but it never blossomed into anything for me. I was wanting this wolf in sheep's clothing type of thing and I think that may have been the intention but I just never saw it. I didn't understand the immediate chemistry between Amelia and Gerard. Well, that's not true. I understood it - they wanted to shag each other ... that's not difficult to pick up - but I didn't think that it really fit into the novel. It didn't seem like it was truthful to the story that they were in. And the thing is ... that's the whole story ... figuring out how these two fit together. But to me, it just didn't work. There wasn't enough. Of anything. The story as a whole just didn't do anything for me and if I'm being brutally honest, I found it a tad boring. Walking The Edge didn't keep my attention, I wasn't chomping at the bit to read more and when I was finished with the last sentence, it didn't resonate with me. I didn't want to talk to anyone about the book or bug my husband with all of the details (I'm sure he's thankful) and I didn't want to pick it up and immediately read it again. Not the novel for me but I'm definitely in the minority on this one and don't take just my word for it on this book, read a few more reviews from other bloggers and see what they think. Maybe my radar for good books is off right now because mine is the ONLY rating on Goodreads that is under 3 stars. Oh, well. On to the next book! * I received this novel in exchange for an honest review *
