Publisher's Summary

Following a near-death experience, firefighter/paramedic Emma Hill's world is turned upside down. Haunted by a vision of the man who could very well be her soul mate, Emma is desperate to find that man, but fear stands in her way.

With a maniacal ex-husband determined to get her back, Emma struggles to stay clear of him or risk living a life riddled by quiet desperation and abuse. Fighting with a dirty cop is dangerous enough, but when that dirty cop is her ex-husband, the stakes are raised to disastrous levels.

Craig Masterson, the firefighter who saved Emma's life, finds himself falling for her. When he learns who her ex-husband is, he realizes that this is a battle he may not win.

Choosing to love her is a deadly game. If he can stay alive, their love may flourish, but only if he can defeat her ex.

    "A great start to this series!"

    --I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

    This is my first Lisa Ladew book and really enjoyed listening to it. I love books about firefighters and with strong women. This provided me with both. Emma, who has a vision of her soulmate while seriously injured is now searching for this man. Craig, the firefighter who saved her is falling in love with her. The problem is he does not match who Emma thinks is in the vision. We get to meet Emma's psycho ex-husband, Norman who is a captain in the police department and lays claim to her whenever she has a date. Little does he know that Craig is an undercover FBI agent who is investigating him. This book is the first of the series and leaves you with a major cliffhanger, wanting more!

    Emma Lysy provides us with an amazing performance. This was my first narration by her and found her voice warm and pleasant. I love that you can easily discern between characters and her voices between male and females is very good. I will look for other narrations by her.

    "Swoon! Loved it!"
    Any additional comments?

    This one was going so good and right at a crucial moment, bam the book ends; I seriously yelled at my phone.  The bad thing was, I was sitting at my desk at work.  The good thing is they are used to me being a crazy nut job, so nobody said anything. 

    I really got into this story and was incredibly wrapped up in Emma and Craig.  Emma has had such a truly hard life, and all she wants is to be loved and have a family of her own.  Yet, the one guy that can bring her that, she almost loses because of her own foolishness.  Craig couldn’t be any more perfect; he is sweet, caring, tall, muscled, and HELLO a firefighter.  I’ve seen my local firefighters and boy howdy!  Oh look I’ve fainted and need mouth to mouth, shall I swoon!

    There is also a bigger revolving backstory going on with the corruption in Westwood Harbor, and it looks like 7 books have been written so far.  Only Edge of the Heat is on audiobook.  I am going to email the author and find out when or if anymore will be made into audiobooks.  I hope so; I really loved it and am giving it 5 Boundless Stars....Sara

    Any additional comments?

    This was a very good listen!! I enjoyed the story and the characters and the narrator was spot on. I hated the epilogue.

    Emma and Craig had an interesting first meet and the tangled webs that kept them apart were original and not angsty. I was hooked and even though I knew this was the first book in a series, I was not expecting that ending.

    Now I sit here waiting and wanting book two. So, hurry up already!

    What a good book! I can't wait to finish the whole series! I fell in love with the characters and the reality of the story. The narrator did a wonderful job of keeping the story full of emotion and suspense!

    "Crazy but great!"
    What did you love best about Edge of the Heat: Edge of the Heat Romantic Suspense Series?

    The story line was interesting and attention grabbing.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Some of the writing could have used more description as to why things happened. It was a bit of a jumble.


    What does Emma Lysy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Eh tone and reading were great! There were a few times she mispronounced words but other than that i was happy to listen to her.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    If you cant handle the heat stay out of the triangle.

    Great story, but not real happy about ending - should be an option for the next book in this series right at the end. Narrator very good.

    "Interesting but incomplete"

    While the book, in isolation, lacks the depth and complexity typically expected from a romantic suspense novel, I enjoyed the various threads that have been woven together to form the storyline tapestry. It is clearly evident that the book is an introduction to this series. However, the author successfully whets the reader's appetite, leaving the reader anticipating the next course of action. The main characters are quirky and interesting, with multiple layers and great potential. The narration is clear and the narrator has good intonation. Overall, I enjoyed this audiobook and look forward to the remainder of Emma and Craig's story.

    "Enjoyable Story - The Heroine Was A Bit Immiture"


    ATTENTION: Cliffhanger…

    This COULD be a standalone, but the epilogue leaves some threads that makes the listener want to hear the next part.

    After almost dying, Emma is saved by firefighter/EMT Craig Masterson. As she is coming coming back from consciousness, she has a vision of what she thought was her soulmate.

    As soon as she meets Craig, she dismisses him as soon as she finds herself attracted to him, because he does not have the coloring, build, hair or anything similar to her "soulmate vision".

    Craig goes to check on her after being taken to the hospital. Emma meets a fantastic looking doctor who fits every single slot of her "soulmate vision."

    What is a girl to do when caught between a man who fits her vision and one who doesn't? This was a fun book to listen to, though challenging at times because I just wanted to smack Emma at times. Of course, as a listener, I knew a lot more about them and what was going on at the time.

    The NARRATOR, Emma is wonderful. She was able to handle all of the characters including two alpha males with ease and without distraction. Her performance allowed me to picture what was going on without being distracted.

    "Delivers!"

    I don’t usually read many books from this genre, but I really enjoyed this one. The narration brought the story to life and held my interest throughout. The story was well thought out, complete and will keep you listening. I will definitely be watching for this author in the future.
