Leading man on the new E.D.G.E. series reality show? Check.
Stunt-double for the star in the latest, multi-million-dollar funded military movie? Check.

When I signed on to do stunts for Hollywood’s eagerly awaited war-thriller, I thought it would be like every other gig—go in, try not to get killed, and leave with a fat check and an adrenaline rush. This time? Not so much.
Mackenzie Patterson is the on-set expert. She knows topographical layouts, government lingo, speaks four languages, and is one of the best explosive disposal leaders the Air Force has ever seen, so she’s more than qualified.
She’s also the woman who turned my teenage heart to ash.
I can’t ignore the darkness that has appeared in her eyes, or the urge I have to take it away.
Quitting isn’t an option, but the more I see her, the more I want to make her mine. And that can never happen because our past is twisted with heartbreak, hate, and regret.
Every second I spend with her is a battle between holding on to the anger in my heart—and giving in to the love that never left.

Molly E. Lee has quickly become one of my favorite authors. She’s reinvented romance for me with her swoon-worthy males who aren’t afraid to show how they feel for the leading ladies in their lives along with the amazing adventures her books take us on.
After reading Edge of Brotherhood, I couldn’t wait to read Wade’s story. I already loved him and knew his story would be equally as amazing as Dash, Easton, and Connell, and I was not wrong. In Edge of Regret, we meet Mackenzie, the girl who stole Wade’s heart when he was only eleven years old. My heart broke for Wade as his plans for the future fell apart when after years of planning, Mackenzie decided to enlist in the Air Force and forcing Wade to leave her. After ten years apart neither Wade nor Mackenzie have gotten over each other and are once again brought together.
Those eyes said it all. Love, lust, and regret.
She didn’t want to leave me- she had to.
I didn’t want to let her go-but she needed me to.
“I’ve loved you since before I knew what that word meant, “I said, claiming her mouth so hard she gasped.
This story is different than what I’ve read before. The last ten years have not been easy on Mackenzie. She has suffered in ways not many can imagine and is trying to recover on her own. Sadly she isn’t successful, but once Wade’s back in her life, Mackenzie starts to feel like the woman she once was, and he’s the only one who can help her.
Everything in my sould was made to help her, regardless if she was mine or not, or if we hadn’t spoke in years. It didn’t matter. I couldn’t change it, couldn’t deny it, and didn’t want to.
In the beginning, it’s not easy for either Wade or Mackenzie. They have conflicting emotions keeping them apart and only friends, but how to you only stay friends with someone you’ve loved since you were a child?
Will Mackenzie let go and let Wade help her? Will she finally get better only to return back to her job that will take her away once again with the possibility that she might not come back?
“I want to give you everything, Wade. Do you know that? I just… I don’t have a choice. Let me love you…” She closed her eyes, her forehead against mine before kissing me. “Love me,” she said, her kiss turning frantic again. “Forgive me.”
Even though this book is different than Molly’s previous books, it’s equally as amazing, and it’s perfect for Wade’s story. I loved it and fell more in love with Wade. It’s chalked full of danger, humor, romance, adventure, and excitement. I can’t wait to read more of the series and the E.D.G.E boys. I think Casey needs his own story. 🙂
I’d moved on, and yet my heart still clung to the hope that one day she’d return to me and we’d live out the happily ever after I’d planned for us years ago.
