Book 1A sensual new novel of losing control-and finding the ultimate pleasure.
For beautiful erotica author Dylan Ivory, being in control is everything. Then she meets the man who is everything she is not...and everything she wants.
Alec Walker writes dark psychological thrillers-and he lives for thrills. His tastes extend into the bedroom as well, where he lets no rules bind his desires. The only thing he fears is true love...
While researching a book, Dylan interviews Alec-and longs to taste the temptation he offers. But he's a self-proclaimed dominant and she refuses to surrender control. Slowly, Alec shows her that by letting go and submitting to his every desire she can experience the ultimate pleasure. But to keep the woman who for the first time brings him to his knees, can Alec take the ultimate risk and surrender his heart?
* REVIEW ~ Pleasure's Edge
Eve Berlin knocked it out of the field on this one. To sum it all up in one word … Bravo – everyone stand up and clap so she can take a bow! I am fairly new to this genre, thanks to my smut peddler, Daydrmzzz, and let’s just say that I wish Pleasure’s Edge was the first BDSM book I ever picked up. Sure - I’ve read books entailing the sexual aspects of BDSM; spanking, nipple tweakage (yes, I know that’s not a real word, it’s a Lola-ism), but Eve Belrin has written this book in a way that also explains the psychological aspect of domination and submission to the reader.
Dylan Ivory is a novelist who wants to write a novel about BDSM. Even after extensive referencing, Dylan is not eluding herself to the fact that she knows enough about the subject to be accurate. At the suggestion of an Internet acquaintance she arranges a meeting with Alec Walker. Not only is Alec Walker a dark haired, tattooed, hunk of take-me-right-here-right-now, he happens to be a Dom that can assist her with "hands-on” research of the subject. This experience takes both Dylan and Alec on a journey of trust, letting go of the past, and learning how to love.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book from the very first page. I enthusiastically recommend that all other readers who crave something smutcalicious put this on their “TO-READ” shelf. In fact, if you happen to have one, put it on your “WHAT-THE-HELL-ARE-YOU-WAITING-FOR?-READ-IT-RIGHT-NOW!” shelf. Thanks to Eve Berlin, I now understand why I am letting my husband spank me - LOL. After reading Pleasure’s Edge, you will be every bit as anxious as I am for the upcoming release of Desire’s Edge on September 6, 2011 from Berkley Trade. If you are interested in other works by her, she also writes under the pen-name Eden Bradley.
