Edge by Brenda Rothert
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Im in love... sigh ....
Edge was the 1st Brenda Rothert book I had read. And I have to say, I have discovered a new favorite author. This book was fantastic. And I will go back and read the 1st 2 in this series, as well as her other books.

Yes, Luke checks all my boxes. He was fantastic. The only way I would have loved him more was if he had been into some kink..Luke was the kind of guy that women chase after. The aloof bad boy that they want to tame. Women convince themselves that they are the one he will change for, but they are to easy, and don't make him work for it. So he uses them for what he can and then sends them on their way, and he leaves a trail of devastation in his wake...add into it his pro hockey player status, and well, Luke even had me a bit hot and bothered.
Dell is a team trainer for a minor league hockey team. She is tough and independent and she takes no mess from the guys she is surrounded by every day. She has a strict don't get involved with a hockey player rule, and much to the dismay of the players, she is steadfast and sticks to her guns. Until Luke....
Luke is sent down to the minor league team. He is made to go in order to rehab his knee, after he is taken out due to an intentional hit by a player from an opposing team. With revenge and healing on his mind, the last thing he expects is to loose his heart to the team trainer.
I absolutely loved how Luke ended up having a romantic side to him. Wait until you read about the things he comes up with. He had respect for Dell and her wishes. So he showed patience and creativity in his endeavor to win her over.
Edge takes you to the edge as Luke and Dell find their way to each other. There are a few plot twists along the way that I never expected, that kept me turning the pages. I never saw most of it coming. And not being able to predict what is going to happen is what makes a book good for me. Iam not a huge "fluff romance" fan, because they have a tendency to be alike.. but every once in a while I come across one that keeps me on my toes, and Edge did that.. kept me on my toes. And I loved it!
