Overview

On the Edge by Dani Collins

When Glory Cormer's father introduces her to 'their' new business partner, she's appalled. Viking-like Rolf Johansson exudes the same alpha-intimidation that jocks used to torment her through high school. After nursing her mother the last several years, she's trying to break out of her shell and secretly pursue a writing career, but Rolf insists she go through with the rotten deal her father struck with his brother to renovate an old chalet.

Rolf envisions this mountain as a world-class resort for elite athletes and other jet setters. As a downhill champion and owner of a world-renowned sports equipment empire, he knows what it takes to get what he wants. Nothing will stop him, especially not a hotheaded wallflower who turns the ice in his veins to lava.

Bonus Story! This book contains Glory's novella Blessed Winter, a no-room-at-the-inn Christmas romance.

She's on the verge of becoming her own woman. He's on the cusp of making his dream a reality. The jock and the wallflower, never had a clue what fate had in store for them. What starts off a battle of wills becomes a quest for fulfillment. Glory is finding the courage to speak her mind and follow her dreams. Rolf is the roadblock to her independence and no way will she lose ground to her a bully like him. Rolf is a man with a plan and he will stop at nothing to make his vision real. Dani Collins is good at making emotion the focal point of her stories. She leads with the heart and works her way out from there.

Glory's mother was a successful romance author. Unfortunately she passed away and left everything to Glory's father. Glory is managing her mother's legacy, but her father is the one who can spend the money and he does that by buying a lodge. The lodge needs a lot of work, so Glory has no choice but to join her not very responsible father to make sure the project is being managed well. Glory wants to write instead and has no interest in running the place at all. When Glory's father introduces his daughter to his business partner Rolf there's friction straight away. They're attracted to each other, but Rolf is an arrogant man who just wants to reach his goals and has no regards for anyone's feelings, Glory's especially. Glory's only escape is her laptop where she can continue working on her novella. Will she and Rolf eventually be able to be civil to each other and what will happen when they get to know one another? On the Edge is an original romantic story. I was intrigued by both Glory and Rolf. Glory is unhappy. She feels like she can't live her own life and is always looking after her parents, first her ill mother, which she lovingly did, and now her irresponsible father, which she reluctantly does. She's frustrated and the same goes for Rolf. Rolf is moody and his constant dark frame of mind doesn't brighten Glory's days. However, there's something between them that's worth exploring and their mutual reluctance made their connection incredibly interesting. I couldn't wait to find out what would happen when they'd both give in to their feelings instead of suppressing everything that's going on inside them. It was definitely explosive, which was something I loved. Dani Collins has written a fascinating love story combined with an equally captivating novella. I liked that she's included the story Glory is writing and gladly read this extra treat. It's a fun way to describe the life of an author. I enjoyed reading about Glory's quest to find undisturbed writing time and the recognizable insecurities that a lot of writers are dealing with. I also admired the strong bond she and her mother formed through romantic stories, that's a great basis for a book. On the Edge isn't a standard sweet true love story, it's different and there's plenty of tension. I really liked this sexy and sharp book.

I have to admit, I had a hard time getting into this book from the beginning. But I decided to keep on trying. The story turned out to be pretty good although a bit different from most books I read. After Glory’s mother passes away from cancer, her father decides to invest all of his money in a fixer-upper ski lodge in Montana. Glory is forced to go with him to help out even though she thinks it’s a bad idea. Glory has her own ideas of how she wants to live her life. She wants to be a romance writer just like her mother. So, she writes in her spare time. What Glory didn’t expect was to fall for Rolf, their new business partner. She hated from the start. He was stubborn and refuses to let anyone get in his way of building a world class ski resort. But as in a romance book, they finally end up falling for each other. This book is like two in one, the main story and also the book that Glory is writing. The way it was written made it a bit more difficult to read. I had to keep going back and rereading parts because I would get confused. But all around, it is a good and entertaining story.

Glory is dealing with the loss of her mother when her dad get this hair brain idea and not she is along for the ride. But her dream is to keep writing and hopes that it will help cover the cost for dad's craziness. Rolf has lost and now he it helping his brother get this ski resort off the ground only problem is he has a board to answer to and nothing seems to be going his way. Can the two of them get along just long enough to see it this project will even work? I will say this book as some super explosive scenes in it and it does offer a small story inside so its like you're getting two in one which is kind of fun. I loved Glory she had this soft side but don't mess with her she can be explosive too. She wants to find herself so she's dealing with a lot of pain and hurt but over all she was just easy to connect with. I had a love hate relationship with Rolf. I found him a little annoying and the author made him completely unrelatable for most the book so it was kind of frustrating some times. This book is a steamy romance and is full of adult language and scenes so if thats what your looking for this book is for you.

I read this book in one day. It took a little getting into it but once I did, I could not put down. Glory has helped her dying mother in her writing her romance books but now Glory wants to write her own book. Glory's father has decided to buy a run down ski chalet with two brothers, Rolf and Trigg.which he needs Glory's help. Rolf is very arrogant and alpha male. Very different than Glory, who is a wall flower and a people pleaser. But neither than can deny their is a chemistry between the two of them, as layers are peeled down on each. The confusing part of the book, is the book with in the story that Glory is writing, but I loved it. I became very vested with Pandora and Brock. A great story that I highly recommend. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

Over the Edge, the first book in the Blue Spruce Lodge series by Dani Collins is an interesting book. Glory Cormer is concerned when he father buys a deserted lodge with the money he inherits after his wife’s death. Half-brothers Rolf and Trigg Johansonn are an interesting pair, heirs to a world-renown sports equipment empire, both are world-class athletes yet quite opposite in their approach to life. Trigg was basically an over gown kid, not caring how his actions affected those around him while Rolf was a Type-A focused businessman. I struggled with Glory’s lack of a spine and not standing up for herself. She was the ever-obedient daughter afraid to confront either of her parents. After her mother was diagnosed with cancer, Glory nursed her. She wanted to break out of her shell and secretly pursue a writing career, but feared she could not live up to her mother’s reputation. Glory’s father was a narcissist, not caring how his behavior and actions affected others. He was determined that Glory would accompany him to Montana and get the lodge ready to open, no matter what Glory might want to do. Rolf was interesting, an alpha-type, caring about only getting what he wanted, and not letting anyone get in his way. I was surprised by how much Rolf changed when he decided he cared for Glory. I did not expect a relationship between Rolf and Glory to occur. I really liked the Glory’s novella Blessed Winter, a no-room-at-the-inn Christmas romance that she wrote during her time at the lodge. Despite my struggles, I did enjoy reading this book and can recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

On the Edge by Dani Collins, a great start to the Blue Spruce Lodge Series. The story of Glory Comer who gets pulled into helping her Father in a good business he goes into with two brothers. A former championship skier Rolf and his younger brother Tripp, a championship downhill board racer. A story that will pulled in you from the first page. A emotional trip of restoring a ski resort and the people who do it. I look forward to future books in this series.
