Publisher's Summary

What if your ex-husband was an abusive, dirty cop, and he was convinced he would get you back someday? What if he was willing to do anything to make that happen? Do you think it would scare off your new boyfriend, a strong, hot firefighter? Not if he has secrets of his own....

Edge of the Heat follows four couples on their journey from disaster to happily ever after.

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 him, 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.

Great writing

Superb from beginning to end. The writing and storyline were phenomenal. The narration could have been better. The in and out fluctuations of the male parts were annoying. Sometimes they sounded like butch women and other times like cheerleaders.

What an amazing set romantic mysteries.

My first books by Ms. Ladew, and I almost stopped. I thought Bk 1 had such a horrible beginning that I almost stopped, thank goodness I didn’t. This author has such an amazing talent with words. These were some of the best thrillers I’ve read & the sex was super hot. Great characters with totally different storylines. You don’t want to miss these.

Difficult to get through

Let me start by saying, I REALLY wanted to like this story.. Unfortunately the heroine was so ridiculous and unlikeable that if I could have reached her, I'd have shaken the life out of her. A damsel in distress in one thing, but this girl was seriously weak and ridiculous. The hero was likeable, but way to easily forgiving her the heroines 'issues' that I found myself frequently rolling my eyes and muttering. I'm not sure if the dialogue was as bad as it sounded or if it was a result of the terrible inflection of the narrator. In all honesty I think it was a little of both. I've gave it a 2 because while it was torturous to listen to, I was able to finish the first book. But I just can't bring myself to sit through 7 more just like it.

Don't bother

Author tries to hard. Language halfway between a contemporary romance and one from somthing in the bodice rippers. The narrator sounds like a little girl trying to be all grown up. Getting my money back

Preposterous but entertaining

Well... I have to agree with other reviewers that the story has ridiculous plot twists, unbelievable coincidences, eye-rolling narration and frustrating character inconsistencies.

But... somehow it all comes out entertaining (if you can give the author a very long leash). The characters are funny and dramatic. The writing is extremely over the top but the ideas kept me interested. It's a bit like an OTT Bond film.

It's good to have these books in a series, because each one has a silly cliffhanger.

The narration is okay.

Bad sex award

This book was awful in every way imaginable. The stories were rubbish, the characters were unbelievable and the women all beautiful and the men all hunky and well endowed. Don’t waste your time or money on this one. I really don’t know how it got published at all.
