What happens when you let yourself fall…
Mischa Kennon isn’t one to take it lying down, at least not until she meets sexy Connor Galloway , a green-eyed Irishman with an air of authority she finds hard to resist. While performing duties as maid of honor to her best friend, Mischa indulges in a casual relationship with Connor. She’s surprised by the thrill of his dominance, and lusts for more feisty battles before surrender.
…over the edge
It’s all fun and games in the BDSM Pleasure Dome Club, until Mischa realizes Connor could master her heart.
…and into temptation?
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 possible?

Eve Berlin’s Temptation’s Edge is a gripping, sexy and tantalizing tale. Masterfully written, drawing you in from the first page—delving beyond just sexuality and into the deeper psychological dynamics of BDSM.
If you’re a veteran reader of BDSM or if you haven’t had your fancy tickled by this genre…either way, Temptation’s Edge is a must read. Ms. Berlin has such a beautiful way of easing even the most virgin reader of BDSM into a subject that has until recent years been whispered about in hushed tones; the taboo, the unspoken, and sometimes the most misunderstood of sexual practices.
Connor Galloway is a sexy Irishman with a brogue to boot who is a self-employed Seattle based artist. Mischa Kennon is a tattoo artist and shop owner from San Francisco who travels to Seattle for a few weeks to help her best friend with her wedding plans, as well as to branch out by opening a second tattoo shop. Connor and Mischa are both very independent, confident, and yet vulnerable. Their bone-deep, instantaneous attraction is felt at a primal level from the first moment when they lock gazes at a party to celebrate their mutual friends’ upcoming wedding. Little did either know their lives were about to spin one-eighty after the intense sex ensues. Both have convinced themselves that this is going to be a fun two-week fling and when the two weeks are up it will be life as usual. Let’s just say that they’re both asses for assuming and are in for a rude awakening, as it will never again be life as usual now that the flames have been ignited.
Mischa has dabbled in BDSM before but none of the past doms can hold a flame to Connor; he has a definite command presence, he exudes dom-ness from every pore. This presence is not just in the bedroom or while on their scintillating outings to the Pleasure Dome—it’s not just an act—it’s ingrained in his very being. For Mischa, giving up control to Connor freaks her out but at the same time she knows she likes it and these conflicting emotions are enough to send her into a 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 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 to experience love as it should be—not as they have witnessed in their youth.
