    Dagger's Edge

    Ivan Resnova is a hard man, he has had to be to survive his life. He has his daughter back in the previous book and her friend came home with her. This book begins where the last one ended and Syn wants to leave Colorado. She has secrets and wants to keep her identity a to herself and to keep running. She has been on the run for the past 4 years but Ivan sees through her "disguise" and their chemistry cannot be denied. Virgin no more after that night snowed in, Syn/Journey still runs at the first chance she gets until Ivan tracks her down a month later in California just before a strike team gets her. Now she is back with him and again the chemistry is just as strong. What starts as a bargain, or an illusion, turns into so much more when Ivan puts his grandmother's ring on her finger to seal the deal. So much snark and sex and fighting. A score card is needed at times to keep the players straight to figure out who is who but the sex is outstanding. **Received this ARC for review from the publisher via NetGalley**

    Romantic Suspense Thriller 4 star

    Dagger's Edge (Brute Force 2) by Lori Leigh is a romantic crime thriller. The events begin directly after Collison Point's ending. Information relevant to current affairs is summed up when necessary, but there is a depth to the relationships if one reads both. Crimsyn, on the run and desperate to escape her corrupt, powerful family befriends Ivan's daughter. Ivan is a dominant man possessing a significant Russian family legacy. Having ties to Ivan from her past, she knows he can help her maintain cover. Syn, as Ivan calls her, realizes it is a risky request due to a violent feud between their families. After a passionate night in Ivan's bed, Syn runs again with the intent of leaving Ivan behind permanently. Several weeks after Syn's escape, Ivan catches up with her. Together they devise a plan to stop Syn's family from causing more horror in their lives. Ivan persuades Crimsyn they must get engaged. He hopes the betrothal going public will lure those trying to abduct Syn in the open. When that occurs, he intends on striking them down permanently. Syn's only requirement for participation is Ivan helps her believe the love she wants for them is real. Ivan's passion for Syn is apparent, and the love between them feels authentic. It's fulfilling Ivan accepting he needs Syn. Even more satisfying is Syn accepting her fairy tale has become a reality. Ivan exudes power. He doesn't give excuses regarding possessing and shielding those he loves. Nor his drive to complete those tasks by any means necessary. Rising above his treacherous past gained Ivan a vast empire, which ensures Syn can remain by his side and protected. Syn has a tenacity to her. Her strength comes from within. Moments passed I saw a week woman who needed rescuing, but never so much so that I was totally put off by her. Dagger's Edge is a great addition to the Brute Force series. Ivan and Syn were well paired, and quite sexy together. There was a great amount of mystery and suspense. I am enjoying piecing the character's background stories together. I was granted an ARC copy of this book by St. Martin's Press through NetGalley for my honest opinion. I encourage all readers to come to their own conclusions.

    great read

    A story of Ivan continues in a new book. This time he is protecting the women that have been in his mindes since she was an innocent teenager. But lust, the attraction between Ivan and his Syn is strong and escalates in wild lovemaking. But to escape her family they make a compromise and fake soon become very real. Both Ivan and Syn are likable characters they made a really great readable story. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly

    great read

    Lies and deceit among your peers is bad but when it comes from those closest to you it's so much worse. Family can do you like no one else. This erotic suspense has mafia and black ops, betrayal, human trafficking and more. There is plenty of intrigue and action to keep your heart rate up in between the erotic scenes. Virgin stories are not usually my thing but the story behind this one made up for it and made it worthwhile. This is my first read by this author and it has been a pleasure checking out her style. It's a good read that will keep you invested in the characters especially the red head vixen who proves she has some moxie, his Syn. She saw beyond what he showed to others. Broke through his walls of protection and gave him more than he knew he wanted.

    4 Stars!

    Dagger's Edge is Ivan and Journey's story. We got introduced to them as side characters in book one. Ivan is Amara's father who was the heroine in book one. Journey, known as Crymson in book one befriended Amara for reasons I was not sure of at that time. Journey is the daughter of Ivan's enemy who has been running from her family for years. While you don't really learn anything important about Ivan and Journey's relationship in book one, there are many side characters in this book that make it important to read this series in order to keep everything straight. Even then I admit I felt out of the loop on some of the characters. I have learned that this series is a spin off of another and is probably the reason to some confusion. Despite feeling a bit out of the loop, I am thoroughly enjoying the Brute Force series. I will be looking up the Elite-Ops series as well, since I am pretty fascinated with some of these side characters and I want learn more about them.
