Review: Razor’s Edge by Shannon K. Butcher

Action packed, fast paced, intense and sexy. Wrap it all up with a tough heroine not afraid to face danger and a hot hero with a heart of solid gold, and we have one entertaining read from Shannon K. Butcher.

I had such a good time reading this book. This is Butcher’s second book in her Edge series, and I really enjoyed this one better than the first. In fact I think this is one of my favorite Butcher books to date. I realized this when I climbed in bed around 9pm one night intending to read just a few chapters and the next I knew it was 1am and I had finished the whole thing. Definitely the sign of good read!

There’s nothing earth shattering here. Roxanne “Razor” is trying to find and rescue her best friend Jake. Her boss makes the hero Tanner, a newcomer trying to get a permanent job at the agency Roxanne works to partner up with Roxanne to help keep her safe and to learn about the agency. Strange things keep happening to Roxanne and soon she gets a message from her best friend from childhood, Jake, and immediately Roxanne knows something is right. Roxanne sets out to find Jake, and Tanner follows her and supports every step of the way.

Razor’s Edge picks up from book one with the story of the underground testing facility doing experimental programs on people. In this book we see more of what’s going on at the facility, and it felt heartbreaking to me at times. But it also keeps the story interesting and full of action. I really, really hope somewhere down the road Roxanne’s best friend Jake gets a heroine of  his own. I would have liked a few more scenes with Roxanne and Tanner having more conversation about their respective families and the struggles each of them had.

Overall I really enjoyed this book and found it to be a fun read. I enjoyed it more than Book 1 in the series and feel like it hasn’t taken Butcher long to hit her stride with this series.  She has me hooked and eagerly anticipating the next book.

Favorite Quote:

He released a grin that should have been classified as a secret weapon. His blue eyes sparkled, and his whole face lit up. That bright gaze fixed her, sliding down to her mouth, and back again. “Thanks Razor. You won’t regret this.”

Based on the way her pulse had kicked up a bit just looking at him, she was fairly certain she already did.

Rating: B

    Great review. I tried the first one and it didn’t work for me. I’m just not a military genre reader. But LOVE her UFs. She does great characterization.
