About THE FARTHEST EDGE (Erotic Romance Releasing June 6, 2017):

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.

He knew this was her playroom before he’d entered but right then he saw that she didn’t hide it under sheets and tarps, just behind the shutters.
Branch shifted the light around, seeing a horse, a bench, a table, all of them good quality. It cost a mint to outfit a good playroom and she didn’t make do. She’d been investing. Making smart purchases that would look good, stand strong during play and last a while. 
Fashionable sink in the corner set in an attractive wood vanity, two matching tall, slim cupboards on each side. 
He moved there, looked through the vanity and cupboards. Thick towels. Washcloths. Wet wipes. Soap. Bottles of foam anti-bacterial. Cleaning supplies. A large box of condoms. A little basket filled with some cosmetics—powder, lipsticks, gloss. Another filled with first-aid supplies—Band-Aids, bottles of antiseptic, tubes of ointment, gauze, cotton. 
He closed the door to the cupboard he was inspecting, turned and shined the light around the room. Moving across the space, he noted hooks on the walls, in the ceiling, eyes in the floor, all looking sturdy. Whoever put them in might have wondered why or he’d been hers. But whoever that was knew what they were doing. 
There was a tall cabinet and a large dresser across the room, both in the wood that made up the vanity and the cupboards. It all matched, was heavy and dark but attractive, giving the space the definite feel of playroom, not a dungeon. It was stylish and handsome, even warm, somewhere you’d want to stay awhile. 
He didn’t think on his last thought as he opened the top cupboard doors of the cabinet and shined the light in, feeling what he found there in his dick. 
Cats. Whips. Switches. Flogs. Paddles. Some straps. Some harnesses. All hanging from hooks. All well organized and well maintained. All also excellent quality. Not many, but again, quality, not quantity, was what she was clearly going for. 
He closed the doors and crouched down to the two drawers at the bottom of the cabinet, opening them. Top one had silk ropes, some chains, shackles, cuffs. The bottom drawer was full of leather straps with cinches attached. 
Branch straightened, moved to the dresser. Nothing littered the top, so he opened the first drawer. 
What he found there made his balls draw up. 
Carefully placed in what looked like purple silk-lined, custom-made grooves were her toys. 
Plugs. Cocks. Vibrators. The first two in an impressive range of lengths, girths and shapes. If they had them, remotes were placed at the side of the toy they controlled. There was also a complicated cock ring, rabbit ears at the front for clit stimulation, and a strap that would lead between the balls to a bullet that could be inserted in the anus, all of it obviously vibrated—triple the fun. 
She like ass. 
Not many of her kind didn’t.

    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 accessorizeand 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.


Ohhhhh, every time I read a new book by Kristen Ashley I fall more and more in love with her writing style and the stories she creates.

I don't want to spoiler anything, because I think that you need to jump in a KA book head first and follow her lead through the ups and downs of the characters' journey.
But let me tell you what I loved about this book.

First of all, Evangeline and Branch, the main characters, are different from Amelie and Ollie, the protagonists of the previous book. I really liked this, because we get to know another type of relationship that can be built between a Dom (in this case Evangeline) and her Sub (Branch).
I needed a little time to rearrange my ideas because I was expecting something similar to the previous couple, but in the end I was really happy about this change of scenery.
Evangeline and Branch are really a great couple, attracted by each other from the very first time they meet. Their relationship is explosive, magnetic, and I read this book in one sitting because I couldn't put it down.

I loved the development of their story, and so Evangeline's wish to heal Branch and bring him to live again. Her strength was outstanding, in many ways, and she is a woman that I got to admire: she is compassionate, understanding, absolutely drama free, the perfect woman to heal Branch.

And Branch, OMG, he is perfect: I don't want to tell much about him, but just that there are so many different aspects of his personality, he's though but sweet <3

And as far as the BDSM part, as always, KA made me like something that is usually not my cup of tea. She gives something to these scenes that glues you to the page and make you lose yourself in the story. And as I said before, I loved how the DOM/Sub relationship was developed between Evie and Branch, a different type of relationship, maybe sweeter, less extreme, but I loved it.
