Erotic Romance Early Review: Over The Edge by Meredith Wild

Over The Edge by Meredith Wild (Bridge #3)


Egalley thanks to Waterhouse Press

Synopsis from Goodreads
Olivia Bridge has always been a good girl—good grades, good friends, and a good job that her wealthy parents handed her. Desperate to carve out a life that is truly hers, Liv walks away from it all and takes on the challenge of helping her brothers open a chain of fitness centers in New York City. Just as she’s beginning to find her footing in a new place, she’s caught between two men who couldn’t be more determined to turn all her goodness inside out.

Will Donovan has the capital to make the Bridge brothers’ entrepreneurial dreams a reality. Taking their uptight sister to bed seems a reasonable perk for the risk. Liv is the smartest, sexiest prude Will’s ever met, and he can’t wait to break her down.

Life is too short for Ian Savo to play by anyone’s rules. Sharing women with his best friend isn’t anything new, so when Will introduces him to Liv, he can’t wait to get a taste. But falling for the same girl, or falling at all, was never in the plans...

Funny how this book has a but of an old school romance feel to it. By the way, I haven't read the first two books in series, but I didn't feel like I was missing out on the plot.

First of all, the description? Why an independent, determined young woman is "a prude" who needs "breaking" I could never understood. She is not an effing horse!



Olivia is a lovely girl, and she is honest with her desires. Will is a bit of a jerk to her to start with, but she wants him and craves a bit of wildness in her life as a part of her quest for independence. I say: "Atta, girl!" You go for it.

Then, surprise, surprise, Will who wanted to "break" Olivia, loses his sh*t, and goes all intense and possessive. Unless you are a shifter or a vamp, that stuff is super unhealthy, you know?

Ian is Will's friend and roommate. He doesn't come from money and works as a firefighter. He really likes Liv, and has known her as his friend's hot younger sister for awhile, he just kept his paws off her as a sign of bro-camaraderie or some other nonsense like that. When Will messes up (and oh boy, was I furious with him!) Ian shows maturity & self-sacrifice. I absolutely loved how he managed to persuade Liv to follow her heart desires and start painting again. It was adorable.

So, as you see, for me it was a mixed bag. I liked Ian, Will was okay, and Liv was lovely. I did not enjoy the trope used, but it's never been my favorite. Overall, though, a nice book, which fans of Maya Banks, I think, will love. Also, it was pretty hot. Recommended.

Смешно как-то, что эта книга построена на классических элементах романа старой школы. С самого начала глаза резануло описание Оливии как "ханжи", которую одному из главных героев хочется "сломать".

Почему молодая, уверенная в себе, независимая и красивая женщина, осмелившаяся поспорить с мужчиной - это "ханжа"? Лив соглашается на ужин с Уиллом, чтобы он не затормозил проект, над которым работает её брат и честно сознаётся, что а) её к нему влечёт б) она с ним хочет переспать.

Это Уилл, который после ночи с ней почему-то ведёт себя как вампир или оборотень, ведь только они в наши дни ведут себя как неандертальцы. Он полон ревности и собственнического инстинкта и никак не может ей насытиться. Это он совершает глупейшую ошибку из-за своего эгоизма.

Иан, с другой стороны, - обаяшка. Лив он знает уже давно, как жгучую красотку, младшую сестру его друга, и только из-за уважения к её брату он не стал за ней увиваться. Иан - друг и сосед по апартаментам Уилла. Он не родился с серебрянной ложкой во рту, работает пожарным и платит аренду за квартиру, делая ремонтные работы в здании Уилла. Именно Иан умудряется убедить Лив следовать своему сердцу и вновь начать рисовать, и именно он думает над серьёзными последствиями ошибки Уилла и жертвует своим счастьем для благополучия Лив.

Мисс Уайлд использует одну из старейших уловок романов старой школы - случайную беременность, которую я терпеть не могу. Особенно, когда у героев есть время и деньги на хорошую контрацепцию.

А в общем, нормально, горячо, есть очень хорошие моменты. Предыдущие книги я не читала, но не чувствовала, что что-то пропустила. Думаю, что понравится особенно поклонникам творчества Майи Бэнкс.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
