Blake Caster has been in an emotionally abusive relationship with Justin for so long, she can’t tell what is normal anymore, and so she clings to the one thing that is solidly hers—her passion for extreme weather.
Three years into her Meteorology degree, Blake meets professional storm chaser, Dash Lexington, who is as gorgeous as he is daring. Instantly recognizing her passion and skills in analyzing weather data, he makes a spot for her on his tight-knit storm chasing team. Dash and Blake form a fast friendship and it forces her to realize just how toxic her relationship with Justin is. She can’t deny the lightning-worthy chemistry she has with Dash or how her heart stalls every time he gets too close to a tornado.
With each chase and the cherished moments with Dash, Blake discovers her own self-worth and gains the strength to end things with Justin for good. But he won’t go easily. As Blake tries to sever ties with one man, she fears she’ll lose the other to his dangerous obsession—and she doesn’t know if she’ll be enough to save him from the impending storm that could end them all.
True love is friendship set on fire.
This was my first Molly E. Lee book and I absolutely loved it! I met Lee at Holidays with the Belles this past February, and she told me all about her adventure romance series. She sold me so fast that I bought the first three books in the series, which I am so glad that I did!
Edge of Chaos is about a girl who doesn’t realize she is in an emotionally abusive relationship, and a boy who takes dangerous risks in order to make sure other family’s don’t have to go through the hell that his did.
Blake didn’t start questioning her relationship until she meets Dash, who opens doors for her, loves her dog as much as she does, and treats her like a Queen. Blake had no idea that there were men out there who could treat women with respect and think about her instead of themselves for a change. Dash and Blake strike up an easy friendship from the beginning, but neither can figure out what it means, especially since they are both in relationships. I wanted to punch Blake’s selfish bastard of a boyfriend, Justin, in the face. Blake was emotionally abused constantly when she was with Justin, and I hated it. Blake was so kind and sweet, and she did not deserve the abuse that she received. I loved reading her journey because this girl slowly realized how strong of a person she really was despite how confused she felt about Dash and Justin. Blake had been so swallowed up by Justin and has no idea who she is without him, but will Dash wait for her to figure it out?
Dash was such the perfect gentleman and I wanted him to be my boyfriend. He was charming, considerate, and knew what he wanted in life. However, some things are going to take longer than he expected. He hates seeing the way that Justin treats Blake, but all he can do is keep talking with her and hope that she figures it out for herself how toxic he is to her well being. For now, he will just keep chasing storms in the hopes that he can lure Blake into joining his team. Dash watched his childhood neighborhood disintegrate due to a horrific tornado and wants to be able to stop that from happening to other people…even if it costs him his life. The only person who can get him to leave before that happens is Blake, but even she can’t stop him from chasing the worst tornado to touch land in years.
I loved Blake and Dash’s easy friendship and the side characters in this book as well. It was very well written and read fairly fast. I will definitely be diving into the next book soon!
I recommend this book to those who love: adventure romance, emotional reads, friends to lovers, heroines finding who they are again, and storm chasers.
Overall Rating: 4.5/5 Stars!
