Isabella's marriage to the wealthiest man in the state looked fairytale perfect. Only she knows the truth behind the nightmare forcing her to run with the clothes on her back, the scars on her body and no one to trust. Not even her own father.
When the man hunting her has unlimited resources, hiding in plain sight is a wise choice. Isabella basks in the protection of the limelight as an instructor on a pro-am TV dance competition. Perfect plan, except her ornery partner is packing moves she never learned in any studio.
A rookie mistake in the line of duty earned Razor months of rehab and a healthy distrust of innocent-looking women. Determined to prove to his fellow men in blue his green has worn off, he goes undercover as Isabella's dance partner to investigate her possible involvement in a sex-slavery ring. But as he attempts to cozy up for information, their instant chemistry challenges his detached composure.
An attempt on her life should have cleared the air. Instead it muddies the waters even more, forcing them both to trust each other. And depend on the one thing Razor thought he'd lost. His instinct.

Great Books Don't Promote Violence
While Jayne Rylon is an incredibly gifted writer, Razor's Edge seemed to celebrate sexual violence against women rather than romantic love. The author created an engaging group of sexy police officers who made wonderful romantic heroes, except for the occasions when they committed physical abuse against their lovers.
The 2nd book in the Men in Blue series focused on officer Razor (24) who was ordered to get close to Isabella (22), a suspect in human trafficking. Ironically, Isabella was actually tortured and sexually abused in a BDSM club on orders from her sadistic husband who intended to sell her as a sex slave to the highest bidder.
After escaping her captors, Isabella was assigned to Razor who spent more time seducing her than trying to keep her safe. Really? And what woman who just survived a violent, sexual assault would be ready for dominating sex with a virtual stranger? Isabella was portrayed a sweet but seriously stupid and easily manipulated bimbo. Boring!
This could have been an exceptional romantic thriller, if Razor and Isabella had been older, more mature and professional, rather acting like horny teenagers. The author seemed to spend more effort promoting a misogynistic lifestyle than developing a realistic plot.
