NO! Don't make the same mistake I did

**THIS REVIEW IS FULL OF SPOILERS**

Lindsey was so odd. The story started off ok. Lindsey had a good life then she caught her husband Scott cheating. She kicks him out and he begs her to let him back into the house. Two weeks go by and Scott is still not in the house but Lindsey is panting over the hot neighbor Jake. Jake went from stranger to best friend in like a day or two. WTF! Jake finds out that Scott cheated on Lindsey and makes his move. Jake is disturbingly upfront with Lindsey regarding his intentions for her. SO sidebar. While Jake and Lindsey are becoming friends Lindsey witnesses a woman's abuse and reports it to Jake. Oh Jake is a narcotics detective. So Jake stops by and takes a look and sees what's going on. Well The dude isn't too happy that his business (i.e. beating his wife) is being put on front street and he threatens Lindsey. Someone breaks into Lindsey's house and threatens to kill her and kill her kids if she talks to anyone else. Well instead of going to the police about the break in or anything she keeps it to herself and then she notices a guy following her around, driving in front of her house. She confesses everything to Jake and he says "I got this" and she's all like "ok". Well sugar turns to shit and her husband scott ends up dead. Oh I forgot to mention that during the 3 weeks her and her husband are separated she and jake are rounding those freaking bases like speed demons. So right after Jake eats Lindsey for lunch the police knock on his door looking for Lindsey to tell her her hubs was shot in the back of the head. She cries and then she tells the kids and they cry then it's all let's have pizza as if dad has been dead for YEARS instead of hours. then the same evening she finds out that her husband of 15yrs is dead, the man who gave her 2 kids, the man she came very close to boning the day before; she is in bed being handcuffed to the headboard by jake and is about to have her world rocked. c'mon son!!! this shit is beyond ridiculous. NOW jake is kinda skeevy to me. he went from the neighbor who never really talked to lindsey to the dude who's sexually harassing her and her stupid ass is falling for it. His dirty talk MAY have been hot if the entire situation (and writing) was different. And seriously that whole pseudo bdsm shit was so forced and unbelievable.

and seriously her reaction to having her husband and her best friend murdered in less than 48hrs was epicly unbelievable.

Who the hell is Carter and what was the point of adding the boys in the prologue? Oh and Lindsey has her BFF, her husband, Jack's friend (Carter?) murdered and not to mention the traumatization of having her kids and mom duct taped to chairs in their home by a psychotic cop and less than a year later she's married to Jake AND pregnant with his baby? Oh and his initial reaction to the baby news was seriously full of WTF!?!?!?!?! Don't you think the subject of having more kids would be discussed BEFORE you up and marry this guy? And the whole honeymoon fiasco and baby thing? I. CAN. NOT.

This was the stupidest shit I've ever had the misfortune to torture myself with.

story - 1 concept was good but that was about it.
narrator - 0.5 NO NO NO NO NO!!

Struggling with Sharp Edges

Main character Lindsey Shepard leaves her husband of 15 years after she finds he's cheated on her. Lindsey and her 2 children, attempt to start over only to be stalked and haunted for reasons she's has no understanding. With the death of her husband Lindsay seems to rebound into her neighbor Jake Sharps arms rather quickly.

I struggled with the flow and logic of this story. Things didn't always make chronological sense to me. There was very little lead in to some of the scenes that should have been scary, but because you really didn't have enough back ground...it made it difficult for me to understand the fright or the feelings behind the fright.

good lord this was bad

I thought of stopping about 10x before chapter 8. Between the stiff narration and the writing it's a struggle. The editing is also kinda rough. The characters; especially the main is sooo naive and stiff and just dumb, it's like she has no idea about the world at 32, she expects things to go her way and yet knows nothing! Any romance is cringy and hard to get through, Sharp is also way too annoying for me to find sexy. Pushing yourself on a woman when she says no or she needs time is just so triggering.

not sure....(spoilers)

I'm not sure how i feel about this book. i did listen to the whole thing but for me something was off. I think it has to do with her grief or lack there of after the deaths in the book...it just seemed off.

A suspenseful read!

Just when things begin to heat up between them, she learns that he may be carrying some of his own dark secrets...

I struggled with this story from beginning to end though it was still a good read. It was a good story with some suspense and mystery.

The narrator was alright.

Great suspense story

Sharp Edges is a great story that will have you on the edge of your seat. Who do you trust when everyone is suspect? When you can’t trust the people supposed to be protecting you? When your husband is murdered and then your best friend is too? Should you trust the hot cop next door or is he a bad guy too? This story is full of twists and turns and will keep you guessing until the final chapter. It’s well worth the time to read or listen.

Sharp idea for a story

I was on the edge of my seat with this story. There wasn’t a dull moment. So many twists towards the end was great. I just didn’t like the whole thing with the husband Scott. It didn’t feel very plausible. Other than that, it was great.

The narration wasn’t very good. I almost stopped listening to it, at times it was good. Mainly when she was doing a character’s voice. She was excellent at that. It was the in between “telling” that sucked. Like a robot reading it in a bad voice. Not the worst I’ve heard but not the best either.

Exciting

I really loved this book. The twists and turns and heart pounding mystery makes this story very exciting. I tried to guess the mystery as it unfolded, but couldn't come up with the conclusion the author's creative mind gives the reader/listener. The romance is heart stopping and heart wrenching. The narrator did a great job with the characters.

Great ideas

This one had some great ideas however the story progressed too fast for my liking. I liked the heat and most of the characters that were in the story just not all of them. Interesting story just wish the story was a little more spread out.

This book was pretty good!

They had a couple of things I didn’t like about the book, but the first will be there for those who need trigger warnings. There is mention of sex mostly in your windows but some detail. Having said that I will now get to the good part of the book the story is good once it gets into the story and she finds out her husband Scott is cheating it gets really good. Between the stalker and her neighbor detective sharp it was all very entertaining and by then hard to put down. As For the ending I will say it was one of the better ones and although on some levels expected on some not so much. I really thought this was written in a clever style and trust me when I say the more you read the better it gets. Not that the beginning is something to laugh at if you know what I’m saying the beginning is pretty good and it gets better from there. I highly recommend this if you love romance in suspense then you’ll love this book.
