The Farthest Edge by Kristen Ashley….Release Day Review



Step into the Honey Club, where every sensual boundary will be tested in search of the ultimate pleasure…

Branch doesn’t exist. Living off the grid, he’s looking for a way to forget his past and the guilt that plagues him. But no woman has ever been able to bring him to the edge he craves.

After a traumatic experience of her own, Evangeline stepped away from the decadent world of the Honey Club. But when she gets Branch’s offer—to play without boundaries or commitments—it’s too tempting for her to refuse.

As their passion ignites, Evangeline and Branch push each other to their farthest limit, fulfilling their darkest desires while falling harder and deeper than they ever imagined.

My Review:

The Farthest Edge is the second book in author Kristen Ashley’s The Honey Series and while I really enjoyed the first book, I gotta say I LOVED this book. From start to finish, Evangeline and Branch pulled me in and they held me close for the entire sexy and beautiful ride.  I just adored these two.

What do you get when you take a Domme trying to overcome one helluva obstacle after going through a helluva traumatic event at the one place being safe is held in the highest regard and put her together with a broken man of a Sub convinced he can never reach the sublime connection the right Domme can bring? And what do you get when those two are written by Kristen Ashley? I’ll tell you….you get pure magic.

Branch is literally a dead man walking.  He’s a ghost, a man dead to everyone he’s ever known, living in the shadows.  He’s done and seen things that a lesser man would never be able to handle.  But he owns his life and he knows who he is and what he needs.  He’s not shy about it and I love that about him.  He also has some of the biggest walls built up around him that I’ve ever seen, and rightfully so. He’s in search of something, someone, to give him what he needs.

Enter Evangeline.

Evangeline, the beautiful and strong Domme looking to overcome an event that haunts her to this day.  She’s taken a brief hiatus from the lifestyle she loves so much and is toying with the idea of going back when the opportunity to claim Branch presents himself.  It’s exactly what she needed.   He’s exactly what she needed.

Together Branch and Evangeline are spectacular. They complete one another in the most perfect of ways, both giving when the other is in need and both taking when it’s given. It’s a beautiful dance of learning each other in the most important of ways with trust, knowledge, kindness, and love.  Not only was the heat off the charts, but the emotion between these two is just beautiful.  Branch learning to navigate feelings he doesn’t want to have and Evangeline learning how to love a man like Branch….*dreamy sigh*.  Man, I just can’t get enough of them!

Kristen Ashley has once again outdone herself.  I know these characters will be staying with me for a long time.  Thank you, Ms. Ashley, for another phenomenal read.

About Kristen Ashley:

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
