Author: Cara Carnes / Series: The Arsenal
Mary “The Edge” Reynolds is the most sought-after back office operative around-the creative genius pulling the ultimate bad-asses out of impossible situations. She’s never failed on a mission, and she’s not about to fail on the most important mission ever-keeping her newly designed security system safe. Relying on others isn’t in her nature, but the newly formed Arsenal is her only hope for escape when she’s kidnapped.
She is the Edge.
The Edge never breaks.
Dylan Mason and his brothers have put everything on the line to form The Arsenal. When the paramilitary arena is rocked by Edge’s capture, he’ll do whatever it takes to get the fearless operative back, but his wary heart isn’t ready to handle the vulnerable woman buried beneath the hardened shell. Getting her back was simple. Keeping her and her “security system” HERA out of enemy hands is another story.
Together they must hunt down the faction behind her capture and subsequent torture to keep HERA from becoming an unstoppable terroristic threat. What they uncover could destroy them both.
Wow…. Jagged Edge had everything that you would want in a romance; Thrill action, Suspense, and tons of romance.
Jagged Edge by Cara Carnes is the first book in her new series The Arsenal. The thrill ride you are taking on starts right for the first chapter when you see that Mary “Edge” Reynolds is held hostage, but soon rescued by the elite team named The Arsenal lead by nonother than Dylan Mason.
You would think that this was the same kind of trope, a woman being kidnapped, a man comes and saves her and they fall in love the end. However, Cara Carnes took it to a whole new level in Jagged Edge. Mary “Edge” Reynolds wasn’t your everyday kidnapped victim. She was part of an elite team herself on top of that she was the most sought-after back office operative around. In other words, Mary was a kickass woman who didn’t let anything come between her and getting justice.
What I loved about Jagged Edge was that even though Mary was set out to be this strong person who can take care of herself and other. The story held true, Mary is suffering from PTSD. But again, Carnes didn’t over embellish it, the seed was planted and that was all she needed for when Mary has episodes, you know it was because of the PTSD.
As the story later progress you the readers will learn that this may not be just about Edge, but something entirely.
Jagged Edge was one if many stories that I will certainly find myself reading over. and over, again this Fall.
So, if you’re a reader who likes high thrilling action with a strong leading lady, then add Jagged Edge to your list of book that you must read.
