How do you know…
For beautiful novelist Dylan Ivory, being in control is everything. Then she meets the man who is everything she is not…and everything she wants.
How far you can go…
Alec Walker is a writer of dark psychological thrillers—and a man who lives for thrills. From motorcycles to snowboards to swimming with sharks, there's no end to his lust for excitement. His tastes extend into the bedroom as well, where he lets no rules bind his desires. The only thing he truly fears is love, and allowing someone else to really know him…
Unless you go over the edge?
While researching a book on sexual extremes, Dylan interviews Alec—and longs to taste the temptation he offers. But he’s a self-proclaimed dominant and she refuses to surrender control. Slowly and seductively, though, Alec shows her that by letting go and submitting to his every desire she can experience ultimate pleasure. But to keep the woman who for the first time brings him to his knees, can Alec take the ultimate risk and surrender his heart?

This book is only 182 pages and I think very overpriced for the content. The story is good, but I would not have bought if I knew just how short the book was.

4.5 Stars - For beautiful erotica author Dylan Ivory being in control is everything. Growing up in a seriously dysfunctional home, she’s lived her adult life in perfect order, leaving nothing to chance. While in the research stage for her next novel about a couple exploring BDSM—the power exchange, some bondage—which she’s written about before, Dylan decides she wants to delve deeper, explore edge play. She wants to understand what the dynamic and psychology are about, and find a deeper explanation of subspace—the trancelike state many submissives reach during BDSM play. The chemistry makes perfect sense—how endorphins are released in the body in response to pain or sexual stimulation. But the psychology isn’t so clear—the mental and emotional part of the process. Understanding she’s out of her league and doesn’t knows enough to write that sort of intense power play accurately just by reading a few books, Dylan comes to realize if her story is to have authenticity she’ll need to talk to someone involved in those things. Alec Walker is an author of dark psychological thrillers. And a man who lives for thrills—riding motorcycles, rock climbing, snowboarding, skydiving, swimming with sharks ... anything that gives him an adrenaline rush. Famous for his talents and knowledge as a sexual dominant in the Seattle BDSM scene, he agrees to be interviewed by Dylan, but is convinced there’s no way she can accurately portray the complexities of the lifestyle without experiencing it. There are too many overlapping components—physical, psychological and emotional. BDSM is about sensation and what goes on in your head. It can be sensual, or sexual, or both. So Alec proposes that she give it a try—bottom for him and see how she responds. Either way she’ll have learned something about herself and have some very personal and unique research for her book. Alec is everything Dylan is not … and everything she wants. She longs to taste the temptation he offers, but refuses to surrender control. Slowly and seductively, though, Alec shows her that by letting go and submitting to his every desire she can experience the ultimate pleasure. But will either take the ultimate risk and surrender their heart? Pleasure’s Edge is a well-written, character driven erotic romance. The story was realistic, straightforward, and flowed well. The characters were complex and easy to relate to. Dylan is self-reliant—she’s had to be. She’s always relied on her mind—her problem-solving abilities—to get her through life. She doesn’t like feeling weak or helpless, and since meeting Alec has never felt so out of control in her life. Alec has always believed in the randomness of the universe. He isn’t a relationship type of guy. But Dylan isn’t just another woman. I found myself pleasantly surprised by this book, as my taste tends more toward stories with a suspenseful subplot. Pleasure’s Edge is a sexy, sensual, and emotional read of desire, fear, self-discovery, and love with a satisfying HEA. It contains light BDSM and edge play—pain play.

I have never written a review before, but knew I had to when I finished this book. This is one of the best books I have ever read. I was introduced to this genre after having read The 50 Shades Trilogy. This book was written with such style and emotion, the character development was perfect and the story moved along, never being boring or rediculous.  Alec and Dylan move through their relationship each learning a lot along the way.  This is a great read! Don't pass it up. Enjoy.
