“It was all I could do to stay away.”
Dagger’s Edge is the second book in the Brute Force Series. Each book can be read as a stand-alone. Ivan Resnova is a Russian Mobster who is considered to be royalty. He has faced great trauma in his life and his experiences have made him hard. Crimsyn “Syn” Delaney also comes from a crime family who is guilty of some of the atrocities committed against Ivan. When Syn finds herself in a forced engagement with a family friend, she will do anything to escape. As her path crosses with Ivan the two are physically and emotionally drawn to one another. Despite the significant age difference and the fact that their families are mortal enemies, the two come together and vow to overcome.
“I want you to fuck my mouth first.”
Told in multiple POV, Dagger’s Edge had a very complex plot. Although the main conflict was clear, there was so much going on that at times I felt myself overwhelmed with sorting all of the details out. Still, I found the physical connection between Syn and Ivan to be smoldering and the love they felt for one another to be authentic and full of passion. The secondary characters enhanced the story and yet, perhaps I would have felt more connected if I had read the first book in the series.
“I wish I had come to you sooner.”
Overall, I would recommend Dagger’s Edge to anyone who enjoys a great deal of action and smoking hot passion!
