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.

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.

Narrator Gasping

Could not get past the narrator gasping for breath. The story did not have a chance to grab me to make me go on listening

Edge of Heat

I love Lisa Ladew everything I have read of hers and I so much wanted to read this series but I couldn’t past the narrative part. With every sentence she would inhale so loud I cannot get through first chapter. It was so disruptive. I wanted another reader or I should say narrated by someone else but there was no choice

Very distracting narration

I’m only 3 minutes into the story and I’m incredibly disappointed and distracted by the narrator. Her gasping breaths and reedy voice have me questioning whether I want to finish this series.

Awesome!

I loved this boxed set by Lisa Ladew. The characters were so believable and interacted from one book to the next extremely well. You could feel the emotion and the storyline brought me to tears more than once. Don't miss this set.

Is Siri Reading the book?

I think the story from what I listened too was great, however I couldn't continue to listen because It sounds so automated like Siri is reading the book...completely ruined it for me...it went from a nice smooth pace then sped up sounding even more automated from time to time...lack of voice inflections for me.

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.
