Edge of Darkness: Christian McLoughlin and Ember Jones
(Night Prowler #4)
Six years after a shocking tragedy left her emotionally and physically scarred, Ember Jones lives a life of quiet isolation in Barcelona. Determined to keep her troubled past a secret, she keeps her head down and her heart locked up tight. Until the day a beautiful, mysterious stranger walks into her life, and her carefully controlled world is shattered forever.
Christian McLoughlin is unlike anyone Ember has ever met. Wealthy, cultured, and utterly charismatic, he also has dark secrets of his own. They succumb to the undeniable pull between them and embark on a passionate affair, but things turn explosive when the truth about Christian and the reason he came to Barcelona is exposed. As their dark pasts collide, the two unlikely lovers find themselves caught in a web of danger and deceit that neither of them might survive.
The Edge of Darkness, where hunter becomes hunted, no one can be trusted, and love is the most dangerous game of them all.
Edge of Darkness by J.T. Geissinger is the fourth book in the Night Prowler series. I have to admit this is the first book that I have read in the series, that being said, I picked the world up pretty quick. I could tell at times that I should have read the first three books and there were some lingering questions that I had that could have been addressed earlier in the series but it didn’t really detract from my enjoyment of this book. The language is rich and descriptive; there were a few times I think I had to use my dictionary to see what a word meant. Geissinger does not shy away from using “SAT words” lol. Both Christian and Ember are likable. Ember is suffering from a pretty tragic past that took the lives of her mother and little brother. She suffers from some extreme survivor’s guilt that she walked away from the accident, which was fine in the beginning of the book but the guilt started to get a bit old by the end of the book, good thing Christian is stubborn and decided that Ember is his survivor’s guilt and all. Christian is quite sexy, he’s all sophisticated, sexy and a bit of an alpha, he’s not THE alpha but he definitely has what it takes to be one. The story is pretty fast paced and moves along at a good pace, however, for some reason I liked the first half of the book more than I liked the second half. I think I liked Ember and Christian dancing around each other. Overall, I quite enjoyed the book and may read the next one in the series.
