✱✱Book Review✱✱ Shark's Edge by Angel Payne & Victoria Blue

Shark's Edge
Shark's Edge #1
by Angel Payne & Victoria Blue

Every great dream begins with a dreamer…

Sebastian Shark is on the verge of realizing his dream. The Edge—the most luxurious Los Angeles skyscraper ever conceived—will be his legacy, an icon to dominate LA’s skyline just as Shark dominates its boardrooms.

Self-made businesswoman Abbigail Gibson is on a trajectory toward massive success, but to get there, she must navigate the egos of her demanding clients—particularly the driven and obstinate Shark, who possesses the special talent of aggravating and arousing her within the same breath.

They are a collision of chemistry, but is their potent attraction toward each other worth losing sight of their ultimate goals? Taking a bite of passion has never carried more risk—or promised sweeter reward.

Fate has other ideas, however, as Sebastian is targeted by unknown enemies and Abbi is caught in the fray. Will the danger draw them closer or drive them apart?

Momma Says: 2 stars⭐⭐

Shark's Edge should've been a book I'd enjoy. There's suspense with things happening right from the start to make you start looking for suspects, and there are a couple of decent candidates for that. Then, there's the romance, and in the beginning, I thought this couple would be at the least entertaining. I suppose they were for a little while, and then they started to get on my nerves. At about the same time, they started to bore me. The will they or won't they got old way before the halfway mark, and that still left about another 150 or so pages to go. The suspense just wasn't enough to save the rest for me. Then we get to the end, and I won't say it's a major cliffy - it might have been had I cared about this couple, but as it stands, it's more of the back and forth, on-again, off-again that got on my nerves in the first place. This whole thing was just a little too much like a Fifty Shades knock-off, and in the end, I didn't care enough about either plotline to continue with the rest of the series. I barely made it through this first one, so I can't imagine going through all that push and pull between Abbigail and Sebastian for another two books.
