What the heck did I just read?

That is what I was wondering after reading Close To The Edge by Dawn Ryder, published under the St. Martin’s Paperbacks. This title is book #5 in Dawn Ryder’s Unbroken Heroes series. If I knew how to add a facepalm to this review I would. But for now, I save that for later.


I am going to give you a fair warning now. Don’t be confused like I was when I cracked open the book and Chapter One was missing. That is correct, chapter #1 and the introduction of what transpired before you read chapter two was gone. Without reading the first chapter it was like hearing a punchline to a bad joke. Close To The Edge had no character chemistry, meaning little to no romance. I was expecting what I read in the synopsis. Maybe if I read the synopsis twenty million times and wished upon a star, I would have gotten a better book than what I got.

What happened to the storyline. This story was written like it was a screenplay. You know chapter two take five. For instance, where one scene takes place then it was cut to another scene. An entire book made up of cutscenes does not make a book. It went on and on like that. Before you knew it, I was at the end of the book. Or so I thought! until I seen Chapter One on top of what suppose to be the last page of this book. I was so done with this book that I most certainly didn’t care by that point of what transpired to lead up to Jenna Henson being in Dare Servant so-called protective custody and why the elite to of men and women wanted to take down a Mafia Kingpin.

Will I recommend this book? I most certainly will not. Without purchasing this book, I don’t know if the issue with the chapter in the wrong place was ever corrected. I only hope that it was.
