This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
#1 New York Times bestselling author Lora Leigh is back—with a vengeance—in her latest novel of passion and intrigue, Dagger's Edge, featuring the men of Brute Force.
Ivan Resnova wants nothing more than to escape his hard, brutal past. Starting over is not so easy once you’ve been a powerful crime boss but now, instead of being punished for his alleged crimes, Ivan fears that the one woman he can’t forget is in danger of paying the price.
Crimsyn “Syn” Delaney thought the danger she’d faced was over, and that she could resume her life. She never imagined it would return with a vengeance and throw her back into Ivan’s world. But when an attempt is made on her life, she needs Ivan more than ever to keep her safe—even if she is in danger of falling deeply and dangerously in love. . .
“Leigh’s books can scorch the ink off the page.”—RT Book Reviews
Dagger's Edge is Ivan and Journey's story. We got introduced to them as side characters in book one. Ivan is Amara's father who was the heroine in book one. Journey, known as Crymson in book one befriended Amara for reasons I was not sure of at that time. Journey is the daughter of Ivan's enemy who has been running from her family for years.
While you don't really learn anything important about Ivan and Journey's relationship in book one, there are many side characters in this book that make it important to read this series in order to keep everything straight. Even then I admit I felt out of the loop on some of the characters. I have learned that this series is a spin off of another and is probably the reason to some confusion.
Despite feeling a bit out of the loop, I am thoroughly enjoying the Brute Force series. I will be looking up the Elite-Ops series as well, since I am pretty fascinated with some of these side characters and I want learn more about them.
