The dead call her the Queen of Darkness. To the living she’s the Pentacle Daughter, the only female member of the Pentacle Sons MC. Both were well aware that she was a witch better left uncrossed.
The balance between the wars her and the Sons fought with both the mortals and immortals fueled the adrenaline they all craved–needed, but it never tested them…that is until King returned days after the Club was shaken to its core by a sickening betrayal.
As the past and present collide, the stakes have never been higher for Reveca, or the Sons.
Award winning, Edge is a novella series in a Paranormal Biker Romance, set in the great city of New Orleans. Rich with action, mystery, romance, and mysticism.

Edge is not your typical motorcycle club series, instead it has a paranormal twist. Reveca, is the only woman a part of the Pentacle Sons but she is without a doubt the center of their power. I’ve never been overly interested in the MC troupe for romance novels, mostly because anyone can ride a motorcycle, that’s like looking for books that have a hero that drives truck. It’s a vehicle. But I digress, Edge shows promise to be anything but a bunch of men on bikes…they do have the stereotypical scent of danger but there is a real edge (see what I did there) to it. All coming from the fact that none of the men in this club are entirely human. To top it off it’s set in the vibrant New Orleans, where the paranormal finds a comfortable place to rest. This short novella has it all! Romance and heat, action and mystery, and definitely a lot of intrigue as Reveca works to figure out just what is going on with her sister and the Veil.  I look forward to reading the rest of the season.

I’m not going to say it was love at first sight when I met her. I don’t believe in that. Because love isn’t about falling for someone’s looks. Though she was beautiful in every single way, from her dark, wavy hair to her gorgeous brown eyes, to the soft curves of her body. But that’s not why I fell so hard for her that summer. She took my breath away for reasons that had nothing to do with her looks. It was the the movies, the conversations, the walks through the small town, the nights on the beach with the waves rolling in, the way I could hold her hand and feel as if the world had simply melted away and we were all that was left. So, there was no love-at-first-sight. That would come later, and if it happened first it would take away all the reasons that stayed with me for the next five years. Even though you’re not supposed to fall for your best friend’s little sister. But that didn’t stop me…

Caught Up in Her is the very definition of a fun romantic read. This is the prequel story that comes before the novel Caught Up in Us, and focuses on the beginnings of Kat and Bryan’s unexpected romance. These two are so cute together! The forbidden romance angle is always fun, but what really made this one is the fact that they actually bonded and despite being such a short introduction to them Blakely managed to show off their undeniable chemistry.

I’m definitely going to read the full length novel, because after the open ending and the way they parted I need to know what’s going to happen between them.
