Temptation's EdgeReview courtesy of Dark Faerie Talesuick Dirty An attraction that sparks an agreement a no strings attached affair xploring BDSM tendencies only to find something going beyond something deeper Opening Sentence Mischa Kennon was a perfectionist The Review With the renewed popularity of Did the Greeks Believe in Their Myths? erotica I was intrigued to read Temptation s Edge by Eve Berlin also known as Eden Bradley From what I ve read of Berlin she writes darker angst filledrotic romance filled with BDSM scenes and torment The blurbs on the back of the book use words like dge and temptation luring the reader into what I think is a romanticized version of BDSM I couldn t wait to visit the world that Berlin created specially stopping by her BDSM club the Pleasure Dome Temptation s Edge is an Codependent Forevermore: The Invention of Self in a Twelve Step Group engaging story written superbly and oozes with sexuality Mischa Kennon is a tattoo shop owner and artist residing in San Francisco Mischa is spending a few weeks in Seattle to help her best friend during the beginning stages of wedding planning While there Mischa plans to branch out and open a second shop partnering with a long time college and close friend What she doesn txpect is an instant attraction to Connor Galloway a sexy Irishman who is a self Conscience and Memory: Meditations in a Museum of the Holocaust employed artist Based in Seattle Connor is also one of the groom s best friends not only sharing coincidences in residence but also in their sexual activities The attraction between Mischa and Connor spark an agreement a no strings attached affairxploring into Connor s dominant tendencies and into Mischa s undiscovered submissive needs What they don t Conscience and Memory expect is to find something than just a relationship and an agreement and going beyond something deeper into the terrifying unknown Mischa is a strong character being an independent woman and a business owner She knows what she wants and has molded her life to reflect those life choices Mischa has had an abnormal childhood filled with suffering and painful memories but she has moved beyond them Or at least so she thinks Meeting Connor has opened up a lot of things about Mischa s personality that she never knew about She has discovered things that she never knew she needed toxplore Having a submissive side and giving in to pleasure and pain has been a thrill for her opening up her heart for love and Connor is similar yet different to Mischa He has had a painful past he has generally the same issues as Mischa and while his current life is different to Mischa he is self confident and also independent Connor is a male that oozes sex a perfect male figure for a romance novel He has very strong dominant tendencies but isn t cold nor is he vulgar Connor respects Mischa in all the ways that a woman should be respected and all the ways that a reader would also The instant attraction between Mischa and Connor was believable In Temptation s Edge Berlin actually brought these two characters to the Pansy Vol. 6 edge of their comfort zone pushing them slowly to go over It s metaphorical of course forcing the two characters to go beyond their comfort zones The world that Berlin created within the bedroom and within the Pleasure Dome is surreal bordering between fantasy and reality It allows for the reader to want to become a part of their world and definitely include Connor with you Injoyed this story uickly absorbing Edible Memory: The Lure of Heirloom Tomatoes and Other Forgotten Foods each word I lost sleep over this story wanting to read the next page after the next I loved seeing glimpses of former characters and I appreciated that Berlin wove the stories together so well I urge you to read Temptation s Edge andxplore your boundaries Notable Scene She grabbed his head in her hands forced him to look into her Elizabeth I eyes as he was coming and it was overwhelming seeing him so lost in pleasure Seeing the dark intensity there The connection There was too much there She couldn t comprehend it all or if what she thought she was seeing was real Chills ran up her spine for several moments Then her body arced as another orgasm washed over her his hips slamming into her still his pelvic bone crashing against her clitoris Her head spunverything went dark and she lost herself in sensation Lost herself in himFTC Advisory PenguinBerkley provided me with a copy of Temptation s Edge No goody bags sponsorships material connections or bribes were

T way because I think this series deserves to be read in its ntirety I particularly Excommunication: Three Inquiries in Media and Mediation enjoyed thisdition although there were aspects that I found difficult to relate toOn the surface Connor is a bit of dream boat He s hot Irish solvent and a top drawer Dom He allows her to tattoo him works through her business problems with her and seem to adore her in all her bossy ways Dig a little deeper and you ll realise Connor is a bit of dumbass I have no problem with this the majority of hero s we read about in Romance land are dumbasses but he does some really shitty things in a misguided attempt to protect his heart Connor s father was a man who talked with his fists Because of this Connor thinks he is irreparably damaged He married a woman who he didn t love inorder to try to have a sense of normal Shockingly it fell apart because he seemed to have missed the point of marriage Because of these Gender Justice events he has decided to let no woman near his heart for fear of hurting her because he can t possibly love her back properly He s fine with his sense of reality Well that is until Mischa comes alongSo what are these shitty things I hear you ask Well I m not telling you but they do border on irresponsible Dom territory It almost made me lose a little respect for him OK I did for a while but I do love to see a dumbass of a man fall I forgave him by thend because his positives far out weighed the negative his attitude towards her personality won me overMischa is what made this story different I have seen feisty subs before but none uite like Mischa She is a bit of a pain slut which fits well with Connor and she is literally willing to try anything There is a safe word it is all consensual but she doesn t really put down any hard limits at first She actively badgers Connor to take her to the BDSM club because she wants to play in public freely admitting to a man she recently met what her kinks are It s refreshing because I would Generations and Collective Memory expect to see these types of conversation happen in club play scenes but I was astounded to see it just inveryday conversation She was an asy heroine to like for me but I have always liked brashy heroines She doesn t ven try to deny her feelings for Connor yes they scare her and she tries to run from them but they are still there I admired her ability to accept From Notes to Narrative everything about herself no matter how controversial The sex scenes in this book were indescribable Sex scenes with sadists and masochists have to be written really well to make me hot because I m at the othernd of the spectrum These scenes were written very very well and had me fanning myself at regular intervals Connor CERTAINLY knows how to give a girl what she needs Another thing I loved about this book was Eve s Guitar Makers: The Endurance of Artisanal Values in North America exploration into Bottoming out I hadn tver read much about it before but it was very intriguing to read about Mischa hit subspace really uickly with Connor God's Choice: The Total World of a Fundamentalist Christian School every time and because of this she bottomed out This mean t that she became incrediblymotional and pretty much inconsolable Hard Bread (Phoenix Poets (Paper)) every time they had sex I ve never read any book with these themes before It certainly brought a new angle to the aftercare sideOverall this is anxcellent addition to the series If you love hard playing Dom s falling hard read this book If you love feisty heroines with the balls to ask for what they need read this book If you love your BDSM hard gritty and motional then read this book If need read this book If you love your BDSM hard gritty and motional then read this book If like all of the above there is a high probability you will love this book I know I did 35 StarsEve Berlin not only wrote two strong characters she also adds in just the right amount

tailspin Both have been non committal in the past when it comes to relationships and frankly how could they not be when Mischa s mom and Connor s dad were up for the Least Likely Role Model award I devoured this story whizzing through the pages just dying to know what happened between these characters that were so Black British Cultural Studies: A Reader endearing that they took over my weekend You must read Eve Berlin s Temptation s Edge to find out if Connor and Mischa loosen up on their controlling behaviors and give themselves the chance toxperience love as it should be not as they have witnessed in their youthOriginally reviewed by LolaLovesBooks for Alyn s review posted on Guilty PleasuresWhile I admit that I am an avid book addict it is only so often that a book comes along and completely floors me I am a proud fan of BDSM Gypsy World: The Silence of the Living and the Voices of the Dead erotica but am only luckynough to find one of these gems on rare occasion Temptation s Edge is one such gem The third story of a series written by Eve Berlin works well with its predecessors yet can stand beautifully well by itself It involves three of my favorite things tattoos Irish accents and sexy DominantsMischa Kennon is a tattoo artist that is visiting Seattle for her friend Dylan s wedding while working on the possibility of opening a new tattoo shop She is well aware of Dylan s and her fiance Alec s BDSM relationship and has had some playtime of her own on occasion She is strong and independent and doesn t mind trying out new things for the sake of Bryozoan Evolution excitement Too bad most guys have not managed to be all thatxciting to her A tragic past of watching her mother deal with ndless heartache while she and her sister were abandoned left Mischa hesitant when it comes to relationships Thus having some fun with one of Alec s Dominant friends for some uick play time without strings attached is certainly not out of the uestionConnor Galloway is one of Alec s close friends Hanging out in the same BDSM circles as many of the wedding guests Connor is not afraid to admit the same BDSM circles as many of the wedding guests Connor is not afraid to admit he is a Dom as well as a sadist at heart When he lays yes on Mischa and her beautifully tattood body he sees not just a woman but someone who may njoy his brand of pleasure with a beautifully tattood body he sees not just a woman but someone who may njoy his brand of pleasure with a of pain infused With some flirty and very suggestive introductions Connor charms his way into an vening with Mischa and shows her how Dominant he truly can be When it is clear that one night is not nough they both find themselves in a whirlwind of Going Berserk emotions mixed with pleasure and pain that bring up difficult memories of the past and certain fears for the future Can Mischa learn to trust a man with her heart Can Connor learn to finally trust himself You will have to read this magnificent mindbending love story to find outEve Berlin has created two painfully deep characters that you will fall in love with I simply fell for these tortured souls and felt as though I was right there with them throught the story Connor with his heavy Irish accent and Dominant presence hovers over you throughoutach page He gives a strong and safe feeling that makes you feel like the one being cherished as you follow the story His command over Mischa is overwhelming and you simply melt with her very time he goes Dom I also njoy that the story has a little bite to it I have read so many BDSM stories where they touch on spanking and maybe a toy or two This one moves into pinching and clothespins and rather than overwhelming the reader with it it is done in such a way that you can t help but be curious In addition the sadist Come Hell or High Water: Feminism and the Legacy of Armed Conflict in Central America enjoys his own pain in the form of a tattoo Having uite a bit of ink myself I can attest to the fact that it is an almost meditativexperience when that much pain is involve due to a large piece Eve Berlin turns it into a very sensual Autobiography and Other Writings experience and shows how personalven a tattoo can be I love that both Connor and Mischa share in their pleasure and pain The passion and magnetism these two characters have for one another is beautifully written and sexy beyond belief Mischa s response to Connor is dreamy and when he pushes her beyond her comfort zone it is as if you are in that subspace state with herSuch a beautiful sensually sadistic story that one simply has to savor when reading Each page is like the most sinful dessert that you know you shouldn t have but you also know you can t resist I don t know what lse to say xcept WOW Eve Berlin you have made me a fan and I can t wait to read DiDi s two centsTwo words FREAKIN AMAZING This review was posted at Under the Covers What can I say I m a sucker for tattoos hot sex sexy accents and kinky fuckery And this book was all that and then some I have not ha I thought it was very good for this genre. Ttles before surrender It’s all fun and games in the BDSM Pleasure Dome Club until Mischa realizes Connor could master her heart If she gives in to desire will it be too much to handle or will it open her to a kind of love she never thought possib.
