    ARC received for this reviewWhen I was looking at this book before I requested it, I saw it was an author I liked and the hero was a Russian, so of course I requested it. When I got it, I saw it was a second book. I had to go see if I had read the first....I had and oh no, I said I didn't want to read this one. I said I try it and if I have to DNF it I will. But I loved it. The prologue messed me up. I'm like who are these people, but it all beco...

    Well, THAT sent my Kindle into meltdown! Who says your knight in shining armor can’t be a brutal and powerful crime boss? I mean, come on, is anyone perfect?Lora Leigh’s DAGGER’S EDGE is an erotic love story, so leave your blush at the door and grab the fan as one crime boss’ daughter goes on the run to avoid becoming the “grand prize bride” and falls into the arms and bed of her father’s greatest enemy, the older man she secretly f...

    I was so excited to have been given the opportunity to read the second book in the series, but I'm sad to say that I didn't enjoy it as I was hoping too. It didn't even feel like a Lora Leigh book, it felt as some one else wrote this story and she just stamped her name on it. Over the many years I have been reading, I have read a lot of this authors work, and this just was not up to par.The plot to this one was just off, I like the idea but it di...

    I received an ARC via Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewOh WOW, I really loved this book. Now I see that I have to go back to read Elite Ops series in order to understand everything that happened. Although the story had me lost for a moment I had to go and do my research to see where all the characters had come in and noticed that I missed a series with these people. I loved the alpha male in Ivan. This was a man who got what he wanted an...

    Lora Leigh did her usual outstanding job on this book ! Dagger's Edge is the second book in the Brute Force series, and folks, this one was loaded with action, suspense, and passion. The author captivated my entire attention with Ivan and Journey's story. At heart it was a classic love story where love conquers all else. Let me tell you that this couple had a lot of conflict to overcome. There was a deadly feud, passion, betrayal, and of course, ...

    I haven't been this disappointed in a LONG TIME. I'm not sure what happened with this book. It definitely wasn't up to par with what I expected from this author. While the story idea was fantastic, the execution fell flat. Even though I know this is a work of fiction, I struggle with incorrect information being presented. I really hope that and editor does a little fact checking and combs through this with a fine toothed comb.There were a few thi...

    This book has a very intriguing plot but the writing left much to be desired. There was no cohesion to the story, and at times it became confusing and down right silly. I wanted to like the book, but I couldn't. This needs a major overhaul, it's really just not good.

    1970-01-01
    This was so ridicu-bonkers that it was actually entertaining in the most baffling way. Almost every page had a WTF moment. Actually, Journey and Ivan's romance was just one big WTF moment, with them being attracted to each other since she was 16, her being friends with Ivan's daughter whom he fathered at age 13, he being the sworn enemy of her father and grandfather who happen to be incarcerated human traffickers, and oh, the fact that Journey is...

    In a world of secrets, vengeance and lies, Lora Leigh wrote a surprising and addictive story, with enough passion and eroticism to melt your eReader. Our lead character, Ivan Resnova, is known as a brutal and powerful crime boss, but when it comes to what he love the most he can also be terrifyingly passionate. Who says the villain can't also be a knight in shining armor? Because that's exactly what he becomes to Crimsyn "Syn" Delaney when danger...

    The one word that went through my mind as I read this book was...huh? I was lost reading the first book and that trend continues in the second installment of the series. This book revolves around Ivan, Amara's (heroine from book one) father and her friend twenty-six year old Journey/Crimsyn. Ok - the book should have pointed out earlier that Ivan fathered Amara at 13. I pictured a 50-60 year old hero and thought it was ridiculous when they pointe...

    Dagger’s Edge is the second book in Lora Leigh’s Brute Force series. But a spinoff, on her Elite Ops series. I relished in this installment of the Brute Force series. Though it’s only book #2, in my opinion, this was the best installment. It had everything that a reader of romantic suspense come to love about reading this genre. And to top it off, the male character has no shame. Ivan Resnova knows what he is, and doesn’t apologize for it...

    Dagger's Edge deserves a solid 3.5 stars. The book is a romantic suspense involving a bad boy falling in love with the enemy's daughter. Ivan wrestled control of his Russian crime family from his evil father and his cohorts. Syn a.k.a. Journey Taite is the daughter of an evil family who tortured Ivan's mother but hopelessly drawn to Ivan.

    Another hit from one of my go to authors. I had read the first book to this series quite a while ago so did not remember exactly where that left off, but I wasn't too confused starting this one. (I am planning on re-reading it though)I loved Journey/Syn in this book. Even with her horrible family life, I saw her as a brave and resilient young woman. And Ivan, he was a true alpha, protective and possessive. All Ivan wanted was to protect Syn and h...

    I wasn’t sure how I was going to like this book. I’ve read almost all of Lora Leigh’s books, some I liked but a lot of the newer ones, not so much. Some of her previous works were disjointed and not a lot of continuity. The characters always alluding to hazards unknown to the readers. The writing in this book was similar to her Seal, Elite Ops, Nauti, and Breed series. Most especially the earlier books. So, I was pleasantly surprised that t...

    Now..now ..people...I see some of the reviews and you know I was like that with the first book in this series Collision Point. I had not known this was another side story from characters from her other series. I ended up re-reading collision point to refresh my memory. Journey is a strong female character. Her life was not easy and coming out strong after her life and being on the run is brave and hard considering the depravity of her family. Iva...

    I just could not get into this book. Reading the description, I was really excited to sit down and read it but it fell a bit flat for me. It is the second book in the Brute Force series and I didn't feel like I was missing anything not having read the first one. The beginning was a bit confusing but I got the characters figured out and was expecting a good, fast paced story.Ivan is determined to keep Journey/Syn safe. Even if he has to kidnap her...

    I received an ARC via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Dagger’s Edge is the next book in Lora Leigh’s Brute Force series. This book definitely had some catnip for me. Older hero who is a crime boss with a protective streak. Check. Innocent heroine who is the best friend of the hero’s daughter. Check. Two families at war with each other. Check. I really liked the hero and the heroine. They had a great love story and smoking hot che...

    This book is part of a series. Do readers need to read the first book No. But I would recommend it. I was lost at first and I had even read the first book. The characters are interesting enough to keep readers engaged but honestly there is so much sex it feels as if the author didn't know what to do with them when Ivan was protecting her they had sex. While others were trying to track down the bad guys. They had sex. When she looked at him they h...

    At least Ivan is honest, "...I can be a rather greedy man, Syn. I doubt one night would be enough.” Ivan very rarely gives any warning, “I’m about two seconds from pushing you back in that seat, ripping that skirt off you, and effing you like a godd**ned animal,” he snarled, the challenge in her gaze pushing a button he hadn’t known existed within him. “Don’t push me right now, you little wildcat, or I’ll do just that.” Not much...

    1970-01-01
    Dagger's Edge by Lora Leigh is one hell of a romantic suspense novel. Dark and intense like J.T. Ellison's books yet hot and steamy like that of Lynsay Sands's books. I could not tear my eyes away from this read. It was so intense, dark, and sexy. The characters were on edge constantly. Danger hung in the air on every page. One pair also had to battle their raw lust and love for each other until it exploded. Their lives were at risk and the depth...
