It’s been over a year since I read book 2 in this series, so with the release of this 3rd book, Edge of Sanity, I found myself having to put it down after a few chapters and go back and read reviews of other books. I just couldn’t remember where the last book left off. And I thought that was going to be a bad sign for the rest of Edge of Sanity, but then the story along with the hero and heroine really picked up steam. One thing I really like about this series is Butcher’s strong heroines. They are strong, smart women, who face things head on and don’t give up. You got to respect that! Even when faced with a surly hero like Clay, heroine Leigh never backs down.
Clay has lost pieces of his memory and wakes up sometimes covered in blood. Clay’s boss sends Leigh, a doctor, to try and keep Clay safe and see what’s going on. Leigh has some personal experience with this as her brother has gone through the same thing. There is some continuing back story and other characters important to this book in the series and I don’t want to give away any spoilers. I definitely think you need to read the previous books to make it easier to follow along in Edge of Sanity. Shannon doesn’t spend much time explaining the world of the Edge series.
I really liked the chemistry between Clay and Leigh most of all and the sex really sizzles. At times Clay was a little over the top about how he wasn’t “good enough” for Leigh or anyone else, and some of that didn’t get worked out enough for me towards the end considering Clay made such a big deal about it through the book. But the plot was interesting and a few things happened leaving me excited for the next book and wondering how Butcher is going to play out the next hero/heroine pairing which I hope is Adam and Mira.
Leigh: “You’re bruises are lying. Judging by the color palette you’ve got going there, you’ve been injured at least three times in the past two weeks.”
Clay: “I joined a fight club. I would have told you, but you know the first rule of fight club …”
