***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***

Synopsis

Life is made of patterns, repeated over and over. And mine are violence, abuse, near death experiences. I hate lying to him, but if I tell him the truth, he’ll never give me what I need.

No matter the consequences, the danger, I’ll tell him, and myself, that this is only a roleplay, just for fun.

And if it all goes wrong, c’est la vie, right?

Edgeplay is a dark romance that may be triggering for some readers. It contains frank and explicit discussions of sexual abuse, consensual rape fantasies, and mental illness.

 

***Contains Graphic Sex, Strong Language and Adult Situations. Not for young readers***

***Kristin – #NerdGirlSoldier’s  Review***
I had high hopes for this book when I read the description. After reading it, however, I am left unfulfilled and confused. To me, the plot has holes all through it; I never got a complete understanding of what happened to the main female character, Nina, to make her crave a Dom’s consensual abuse. I’m very confused as to her past home life with her parents and other people in her life. Did someone do something to her or is just a very unhappy person in general? As I read, I had hoped more information would come to light but it never did. What did happen is that I had more questions that are left unanswered.The main male character, Daniel, is complex as well. I have no idea what he does for a living or how he met Nina. There is no substance to his character either. He was hot one minute and cold the next, which leaves me wondering why Nina would want to be his submissive.

I struggled greatly reading this book. It didn’t entertain me as I had hoped it would. Several times throughout the book I felt like I was left to make my own conclusions about Nina’s past and her relationship with Daniel. The end of the book was also disappointing; it felt rushed and like too much was crammed into it in order to attempt to make it a happy ending. I feel like the author left too much unresolved and could have made the book better by giving me more of Nina’s past and more of Daniel’s personal life.
