A Story of Sexual Obsession
I should never have agreed to it.
A woman will do a lot to keep her husband happy. But when my husband sells me to the highest bidder—billionaire, former navy SEAL, pride of Boston's business scene—I agree, not to keep him happy, but because it gives me the chance to finally escape. Escape my marriage, escape my debts, escape my life…
Josh Lane demands a steep price: my pride and my morals. But the truth is, I've never felt anything like what I feel for him. He brings color into my gray world. And his insistence that I submit to his commands—his depraved, filthy, amazing commands—only feeds my craving to be taken by him. Again. And again.
I should never have agreed to it, but I'm so glad I did. Josh:
I don't need to pay to keep women in my bed. Though my preferences may be unorthodox, I never leave a woman unsatisfied—far from it. Lily Boswell, though… Her innocence draws me, her secrets intrigue me. Having her is worth dealing with her cowardly scum of a husband.
I want to release her passions and heal her wounds.
On my terms.
Because the blindfolds and restraints hide more than she could imagine. I must keep her safe from the people who would destroy me—and the demons that haunt my dreams.

This is an awesome story about two people who are each dealing with tragic events in their lives that have left deep scars, both physically and emotionally...but did they give up? NO! They're both working hard to make the best out of their lives, then fatebrings them together, yes there are ups and downs to get to that happily ever after...but so worth it. Sever trauma messis with people's ability to deal with painful issues and if it takes the greater strength of a woman to tract down her man...then more power to her! I loved this book! And highly recommend. It touched my heart and gave a small glimpse into the lives and scarefice's our soldiers make even when they return to civilian life. I wish them all the love, support and happiness they can find. I don't think you will be disappointed with this book...happy reading!
This book was well written and a really good read until near the end. The characters were well developed and interesting and I was really enjoying the plot. Then two things happened that ruined the rest of book. First the heroine had to pursue the hero to save the relationship and I rarely like that. Especially when she did nothing wrong. This seems to be the trend lately and is really irksome. But the really bad part was the sleazy scene at the end and then it ended abruptly. This couple was better than that. So disappointing when a really good book is ruined.
This risqué romp is more than worth the time it took to create, edit, and publish! I was so intrigued, I thought I’d become a sexy spy. I absolutely LOVE Josh and all his hang-ups, demands, and naughtiness; and for the record – I have absolutely no shame! When I thought the sex scenes couldn’t burn any hotter, the flames would spike; and the best part? The plot, the characters, the action! Take your pick. I choose them all. A former Navy SEAL, Josh is organized, demanding, and trustworthy. He lives his life by military rules, and he has no problem demanding – and expecting- what he wants. Lily is quite the opposite, but beneath her soft exterior lies a vixen, and before Josh can count the bullets in his gun, he’s hooked. Of course he has trouble verbally expressing that, but talk isn’t the only form of communication. Lily is a talker, but she quickly- albeit reluctantly- learns his favorite form of communication. The characters are well-developed, as is their relationship, and I would love to read more about them. Even their initial attraction was more than just physical; the cute-meet kicking off a tantalizing read. Amman, Mac, and Baez grabbed and held on to my attention just as much as the H/H. Secondary characters is too mild of a description. I loved these guys! There’s also some mystery – a who’s-trying-to-dun-it, if you will. So my mind was just busy all the way around. There was not one boring moment. And the dialogue? Expert! Del Mar didn’t disappoint. I read the Asset, so I was already aware of her capabilities, and this just confirmed her skills! Kudos, and more Kudos!
I received an eARC, from NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. 'At The Brink' by Anna del Mar is a really hot, emotional book that I could not put down. This is the first book I have read of Anna del Mar and now I am dying to try to get more!! Josh Lane is a ex-Navy Seal that is also very rich. Josh doesn't do relationships and is more into quick unattached affairs that he controls. We learn that something from his Navy Seal days has changed him and it had also had the girl he was engaged to break it off with him. Lily Boswell has been taking care of her mother and that is her priority. Lilly Husband is nothing but a user and keeps Lilly under his thumb with threats of ruining her...and her mother. So when he ask that she go to a party to try to help him get a project picked up by Josh Lane. So she goes between being worried about what he could do and that this might be the way to get him out of her life. When Josh and Lily meet they both feel very attracted to each other. Josh quickly get the meaning that Lily husband would be her up as part of the 'deal'. Josh has taken in to the fact that he might be able to help Lily and be able to get his instant desire under control. Lily had not ideal her husband was trying to use her for collateral to Josh for his project. When she goes with her husband to Josh office she learns what her husband has done. Josh talks to her and lets her decide if this is something she can go forward with. I would ask that you give this book a chance. It has more to it then what can be put down in words. I think you will enjoy the emotional roller coaster ride you get here.

An intense and emotional read! Josh is a successful business man with a haunted past. Lily has done her best to take care of her parent at the expense of her own happiness including, marrying a man who is willing to trade her for money. The chemistry between Josh and Lily is sizzling and the sex scorching. Loved it!
