While Jayne Rylon is an incredibly gifted writer, Razor's Edge seemed to celebrate sexual violence against women rather than romantic love. The autho..Show More »r 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.
At first I couldn't decide who was more sadistic and inhumane: Mistress Lily (professional bully) or Master Jeremy (undercover cop guilty of cold bloo..Show More »ded murder). It didn't take long for Jeremy to prove he was the bigger asshole.
The plot was ridiculous, not actually a police thriller, but rather just of an excuse to promote sexual assault and torture as normal human behavior. The constant references to people as slaves, and therefore just an object to be used and abused, reminded me of the Nazis.
When one of the sex club scenes degenerated into a gang rape, where the Jeremy & the crowd turned on Lily with unimaginable brutality and no remorse, I was totally appalled. I couldn't believe a female author actually believed that rape could be an erotic experience.
This book attempted to romanticize the act of sexual assault and dehumanize women. Jeremy was the worst kind of sexual predator, a sociopath without the ability of feel love or sympathy, and a criminal with a badge. Absolutely not a hero!
When Lily meekly accepted Jeremy's humiliating and cruel abuse, she reinforced the misogynistic belief that women are inferior and stupid. Why would anyone, particularly female readers, find this novel entertaining, romantic or sexy?
this story was well written and the plot was well though out. it had me laughing and in tears in some parts. this book a fantastic. it has your myster..Show More »y, love triangle, action, suspends and love all wrapped up in one.
