Release Blitz: Edge of Darkness by Freya Barker

Image
Edge of Darkness (Arrow's Edge MC #2) by Freya Barker Release Date: April 9, 2020
About Edge of Darkness Road rash and Jack meets handcuffs and street smarts.

I am a wandering disaster.
A hedonist, a lover, a son, and a rebel.

My name is Yuma.
I’m sober enough to see the need for redemption, but too blind to realize I already found it.

I am an independent seeker.
An overachiever, a friend, a misfit, and a cop.

My name is Lissie.
I’m determined enough to find acceptance, but too stubborn to see all I need is my own.

We shouldn’t get involved—all the odds are against us—but when bodies turn up on common ground and lines between duty and purpose get blurred, our future becomes clear.

Review: Edge of Darkness by Freya Barker (Arrow's Edge MC #2)

Image
Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Buoni Amici Press.
Freya Barker’s books are the ones I automatically turn to when I need something more substantial than cutesy romantic fluff. Her characters are more mature in terms of age, and her stories have a darker tint and heavier tone to them, but never fail to make me think and feel. Her latest release is Edge of Darkness, the second novel in her Arrow’s Edge MC series. If you’re familiar with the series starter, Edge of Reason, then you’ll recognize the main characters in this new book—Yuma and Lissie. That doesn’t mean, though, that you need to read book one in order to enjoy book two. It shouldn’t surprise you, however, that I’m going to recommend that you go ahead and read them in order because, one, Edge of Reason is fantastic romantic suspense novel, and two, there are quite a few recurring characters in both of these fab books.

When he turned forty, Yuma looked into the mirror and didn’t like the shell…

About Cherish Her My life was perfect . . . Until fate took it all away.

Heartache and broken bones left me searching for solace in the darkest of places.

It wasn’t pretty, but with the support of my family, I persevered and I’m stronger for it. My daughters deserve nothing less.

Things were finally back on track, until I met Grant Ellison. Tall, dark, and handsome he sets my heart racing. If only the fear of loving again didn’t paralyze me.
*  *  *

A new town means a fresh start. Although it’s a lonely existence, I don’t regret my decision. Especially when a beautiful woman catches my eye.

Dakota Jennings’ strength and ambition are for all to see but her heart is protected by the strongest of walls. My new mission is to show her how pre…

About Pop Star Harley What happens when the most successful boy band on the planet breaks up?
How about twenty thousand fans screaming my name.
But the price of fame comes with an increased risk to my safety.
I’ve been avoiding the dreaded B word for as long as I can, but after a close call with a rambunctious fan, I can’t do it anymore.
It’s time to give in.
I need to hire a full-time bodyguard.
And when he shows up, he not only screams badass, he’s another B word I try to stay away from: boyfriend material.

I’m doing it for the money and nothing else.
He may be the prettiest man I’ve ever seen, and I may feel sorry for the celebrity life he’s been forced into since he was a teenager, but that doesn’t mean anything.

A new series from Eden Finley?! Hell to the yes! Pop Star is the first in her new Famous series, which follows five former members of a boy band named Eleven. This is series starter is also a spin-off of sorts, since it features Harley Valentine, ex-boyfriend of Jay Jackson, whose story played out in Hat Trick, the fifth book in the Fake Boyfriend series. Now, Harley gets his own shot at a happily-ever-after, but is he willing to put his career on the line to claim it and can he truly have it with his all-too-serious bodyguard?

Twenty-five-year-old Harley Valentine recognizes how fortunate he is to have as successful a music career as he does. History has shown just how fickle record labels and fans can be, especially when it comes to someone like him—a former member of a chart-topping boy band who is now a solo artist. That success comes at a price, of course. He writes and sings songs the…
