For deadly secret agent Peter Macmillan, language is a weapon - one he uses to hunt criminals, destroy plots, and charm enemies. Seducing information out of a beautiful singer in a Bangkok hotel should be easy… except this particular singer has the power to destroy his cool façade, and with it, his last defense against a dark past. He tricked her. He helped himself to her body and her secrets. He has enemies everywhere. Laney Lancaster should hate Peter, but when she discovers him shirtless, sweaty, and chained up in the hotel's dungeon, all she can think about is freeing him. Because she knows what it's like to be trapped and alone. And she could use a dangerous friend. They might be wrong for each other, but to survive they must trust each other with their lives-and their hearts.
Contains mature themes.
But was disappointed. The story was improbable, and the hero and heroine fell in love and expressed thoughts to themselves that made them sound like teens with their first crush rather than the adults they were supposed to be. The narrator had noticeably different accents for the main characters almost every time they had speaking parts which was often. I won't be reading this again.
What did you love best about Off the Edge?
This is one of those books that keeps you from putting it down. In the case, stop listening to it. I couldn't wait to get back in the car to listen. I liked the way Laney and Peter connected.
What other book might you compare Off the Edge to and why?
I'm not really sure what book I would compare it to.
Which scene was your favorite?
My favorite was when they were arguing in the dungeon when she tried to help him escape.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Maybe when they sat in the alley hiding from the goons.

I couldn't wait for it to finish, but that's not because it was bad, just the wrong choice for my mood. The female narrator was excellent though.
Fantastic. Edge of seat stuff. The perfect balance between action and romance
Plausible likeable characters
