I hope everyone had a great relaxing weekend. Today I decided to review the new book that came out by one of my favorite authors. The Edge of Us by Jamie McGuire, is the second book in her new Crash and Burn series. This book left me feeling all the emotions and I was not disappointed.
The book description was taken from the Goodreads website:
“From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Disaster comes a story of a fiercely independent widow who falls for a sexy firefighter in this gripping contemporary romance.
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Disaster comes a story of a fiercely independent war widow who falls for a protective hotshot firefighter in this gripping contemporary romance.
Widowed before thirty, Naomi Abrams has been through a lot. Her husband Matt sacrificed his life to save his Marine brothers. Daughter of the US modern militia’s founder, heartbroken Naomi joins the Marines in Matt’s place, too-ready to do anything to help protect his team—men who are like brothers to her now. Retiring together to the town of Colorado Springs, they’ve assembled to take on the job of security at the top-secret military base, the Cheyenne Mountain Complex. As they struggle to adjust to their civilian lives, they also discover new dangers.
Zeke Lund has been alone since being bumped out of the foster system at age eighteen, and now his rag-tag family consists of his hotshot brothers and sisters. Shattered by his first love, Zeke never planned to fall for someone again, especially not during fire season in the Colorado mountains, but Naomi is unlike anyone he’s ever met. She’s strong, stubborn, and takes exactly zero crap from anyone. At the top of a freezing canyon, the fire glowing down below, Zeke finally admits he may have feelings for the widow with the foul mouth and broken soul. When his health begins to fail, he wonders if he should love her enough to let her go or let her fight with him—with the real possibility of burying another man she loves.
Despite hurt, pain, fires, and illness, two strong people with fragile hearts struggle to beat the odds… and their love might just be strong enough to survive it all.”
I don’t want to say more about this book because I don’t want to give any spoilers away. I will recommend that you read the first book in the series which is From Here To You, because if you don’t you might be confused. I also did a review on the first book which can be found at https://iwontsayiminlovewithreading.wordpress.com/2018/11/28/from-here-to-you-review/. This book is told from Naomi’s and Zeke’s point of views which gives you a better glimpse into the story. Jamie takes the readers on an emotional journey through healing and obstacles. This book will make you laugh and cry, and will leave you wanting more!
Go on a journey to heal your hearts my fellow readers!
