A.M. Hargrove’s brand “spankin” new release!
An Edge Novel
I don’t normally use the descriptions for a book. I prefer to write my own. In this instance, I’m going to because I want to spend more time telling you about how I felt after reading Shattered Edge.
Description from Goodreads
Their trial relationship was meant to last six months, but things didn’t quite work out the way they planned…
Justin Middleton, who has left a string of broken hearts across the state of South Carolina, has only one thing on his mind, and that’s winning Terri Mitchell’s heart in six months. That’s all the time she’s given him…six short months. If he can’t do it by then, they’ll go their separate ways.
Terri Mitchell knows she’s lost her mind when she even suggested this harebrained scheme. She finally thinks her heart is on the mend from her past encounter with Justin. However, when he shows up at her house late one night looking deliciously sexy and irresistible, her iron will to fight him vanishes and the words tumble from her lips before she’s barely aware of what she’s done.
Within weeks, both of them find themselves passionately involved, but when Terri’s brother, Preston, shows up, mysterious things begin to happen, turning their blissful world into something dark and dangerous.
I hope you like your romance hot and steamy, cause that’s what you’re going to get in this book.
In the first Edge Novel, Edge of Disaster, the heart came first and the racy sex scenes came later.
Not so in Shattered Edge. Once Terri decides to give Justin another chance, it’s right to bed!
I have a fan attached to the top of my headboard for my bed and it came in handy. Not in the way you think! It put the flames out when the hot bedroom scenes set fire to my Kindle.
I felt so sad for Terri. Recovering from her car crash has taken a long time and she still has a ways to go. Her beautiful leg is so scarred and battered. It’s really knocked her for a loop. And then to have Justin do the dirty with two bimbos just shattered her.
Taking Justin back was a big risk, but I was so happy she did. I felt they belonged together, if they could just move on from the past and forgive.
Justin really screwed things up. He wallowed in self blame and did some stupid crap. Thank God Alexia let him have it and set him on the straight and narrow.
He’s now determined to win Terri back and goes to some really daring lengths to do so.
The author’s writing is so visual, I could see him sneaking into Terri’s house, tiptoeing to her bedroom and softly lying down beside her in the bed.
She bolted up into a sitting position and started yelling.
“Sshh, it’s me, Justin,” I said as I sat up and tried to assure her she was safe.
“No it’s not.”
She swung her fist and hooked me in the jaw. Damn that hurt too.
Good for her. He deserved it. He’s real lucky she didn’t have time to grab the pepper spray hidden under her pillow!
They talked, they haggled, and finally Terri proposed a six month trial period. Justin will have to prove himself or it ends. And with the many following pages, they made up for lost time.
So, we have a hot and steamy romance, a chance to patch things up, and now, a mystery. This is a recipe for a thrilling, hold on to your boot straps, new chapter in The Edge Novels.
I’d hurry up and get your copy! It just released today and you can start reading it tonight! Just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Keep a fan nearby:)
Five Steamy Stars!

But can she put her past behind her and allow herself to fall for the exciting and gorgeous Pearce, or will her lewd behavior come back to haunt her and ruin her chances of happiness forever?
Go here to read my review.
One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn’t do something soon, it would quickly be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So, she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase. Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodgeball pro and had über quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head. Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what lap top out the window. She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone and hit #4 on her speed dial.
“Hello.” “Boss, is that you?” “Why yes, A. M., who else would be answering my phone?” “Er… right. Well, I’m calling to let you know you can pick up my luxury Ford Focus at Starbucks near the interstate.” “Why ever would I want to do that?” “Because I quit you idiot!”
A.M. hit the end button and speed dialed her husband.
“Hi hubs, can you pick me up at Starbucks?” “Sure… Having some car trouble?” “Not at all. I don’t have a car to have trouble with because I just quit my job.” “WHAT?!” “It’s time for a new career and I am going to be a very famous novelist.”
So began A. M. Hargrove’s career as a young adult paranormal romance author of self-published ebooks. Her series, The Guardians of Vesturon, centers around a family of six siblings and is a mix of humor, mystery, suspense and of course, love. If you’re wondering, it didn’t happen EXACTLY that way, but….
