    Lovely Story

    Edge Jump is my first experience with the writing of Elizabeth Noble and I’ve got to say I’m impressed. She’s won me over with her soothing and elegant style, her creative characters, and the intriguing way she tells a story. There’s a nice little mystery here, but it is the lusciously dirty love affair that kept me on the “edge” of my seat. There’s a unique plot in Edge Jump and I enjoyed the way it all plays out… despite being centered around the murder of a professional ice dancer and her fiancé, we are spared most of the gory details. The focus of the story is on the way the romantic relationship develops between the two main characters. Brett Rocha, a retired pro hockey player, is called to Vancouver following the murder of his sister Celia. While there, Brett is reunited with his sister’s long time performing partner, Rylan Hennessy, and the attraction is immediate and compelling. It turns out Rylan has held a torch for Brett for ages, and Brett is extremely interested in the man Rylan is today. Between comforting each other over the traumatic murders, and assisting in the investigation, these two spend enough time together that a romantic relationship is inevitable. (Lucky us!) The sparks really start to fly when Brett discovers Rylan’s interest in BDSM. If you enjoy mildly kinky BDSM stories, where the older, experienced Dom instructs the younger, inexperienced sub, then you will be in heaven! While the murder mystery part of Edge Jump is interesting and well done, overall it is a small part of the story. Honestly, I would have been fine with a few more details, but I understand why the author built the story the way she did. This part of the book moves quickly, and once the murders are solved an entirely different set of problems crops up. That’s all I’m saying because I don’t want to spoil it for you. Elizabeth Noble chooses instead to dive into how aspects of BDSM help Brett and Rylan cope with some intense issues that develop. The power play between the two men helps them explore their relationship and provides them with the tools they need to come through the tragedies they’re facing. BDSM helps them in more ways than one. One thing I found very interesting in Edge Jump is the behind the scenes stories of professional skaters. Both men have to deal with changing their careers as they age. Brett seems happy to have retired from pro hockey, and has found real enjoyment running the training camp his parents established. Rylan has a harder time facing the twilight of his career, having competed in the Olympics and other competitions at that level, moving down to ice dancing is an adjustment. Either way, both men have to face the wear and tear being professional athletes has taken on their bodies, and it is a fascinating part of the story. After a few nights of curling up with Edge Jump I was really sorry to see this story end. I’m really looking forward to delving into Elizabeth Noble’s extensive backlog of work and seeing what else she’s written that will appeal to me.

    Fun, sad, and, sexy, with a bit of mystery

    This story had me hooked from the first page until the last. The writing is captivating and had me turning the pages in record time. It was fun, sad, sexy, heartbreaking, thrilling, and uplifting. It all started very sadly with the death of Brett’s sister, Celia, and her fiancé, Clive. He has known Rylan, Celia’s ice dance partner, from a young age, but now he sees more than the little boy who has always been by Celia’s side. What follows is a beautiful journey of two men grieving in their own way and finding solace and love in each other’s arms. The author did a wonderful job bringing the characters to life. I could feel their connection and love shining through. Brett introduces Rylan to his BDSM lifestyle, and that as well felt natural. They were made for each other. Rylan has always been in control on the ice, but now he is adrift. Submitting to Brett and letting go is what he needs to heal and feel himself again. Brett loves nothing more than keeping Rylan on the edge and taking care of him. The scenes were steamy, but very tastefully and knowledgeably done. With mutual consent and trust. How it should be in good BDSM relationships. A big plus for me is that there are quite some on-ice scenes, and especially the show Rylan performs in sounds magical, with all the heartbreaking beauty. Although I felt that the mystery around Celia’s death was not the heart of the story, it emerged more than enough to not let me forget it and keep me on my toes. The outcome is not that surprising, but the author tied up all loose ends very nicely. Well, nicely in the way of telling who done it. Not in other ways because it has serious effects on Rylan and Brett. They are already so far in their relationship that they can handle this as well with love and understanding. For me, this was one of the best parts of the book as I have gone through the same thing as Rylan, albeit it on a different level. I can, however, relate to him, and how he feels broken and useless. I loved how Brett didn’t give in and showed some tough love.

    kinda creeps up on ya!

    Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book direct from the author, that I write a review was not required. Brett retired from professional ice hokey and now runs the centre his parents set up, to teach. His sister, Celia and her partner, Rylan, has moved onto ice dancing. But a senseless crime takes Celia away from both Brett and Rylan, and brings them both together at their darkest time. Then Rylan is hit with a far worse tragedy. Can they get through this, together? You know, sometimes, you read a blurb, and your brain plots away, and that's what you expect from the book?? Then the book actually goes off in a way you did not see coming?? And you loved it for it?? This book, right here! I have NO idea what I thought would happen here, but I was very surprised with it! It really did kinda-creep-up-on-me!! Brett and Rylan have chemistry, right from the start. But Brett keeps himself back a bit, and it pulls at you, the way Rylan reacts to that. There is a lot of pulling on the heart strings here! I loved the way Brett gradually introduced Rylan to BDSM, and that Rylan took to it, like a duck to water. I didn't think it overly explicit though and I LIKED that here, but that might just be me! I did not get how Celia and her fiance's deaths would play out. Did NOT see that one coming at me, not at all! Rylan's recovery from what happened is long and painful, but you feel it **taps chest* right here. Every time his brain threw self doubt at him. Every time Brett pulled him out of it, and you cheer, when he finally is able to get back on the ice. And when Rylan listens to Brett when he says "I'm not going anywhere!" I've read a couple of other books by Ms Noble, and I do like how she can switch from paranormal, to contemporary, to more sexy books. High skill of an author, I think! It crept up on, this book, it really did! 4.5 stars

    LGBT Murder Mystery - Sports Romance - BDSM

    ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ FOUR-STAR ✩ REVIEW ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ approximate length: 268 pgs / 73k words > > Judging a Book by it's Cover < < The cover composition feels at odds with the story. It is supposed to be about a male figure skater / ice dancer and a male retired hockey player but the model (or models) on the cover is/are barefoot. I would expect him/them to wear skates, at the very least. The title really makes no sense to me regardless that somewhere, much further into the story, it's said that EDGE JUMP was a skate move. I probably would not have picked up this book on my own based on the cover but after reading the synopsis, I was interested in the story. > > Looking Deeper < < POV ~> Third-person When competitive skating star, Celia Rocha, is killed while touring in Canada, her brother, Brett heads north to tie up loose ends and bring her body home. There, he finds Celia's skate partner, Rylan, barely holding it together. A snafu in hotel reservations brings the men together a little sooner than either anticipated, but they've known each other for most of their lives so it's not awkward sharing a room. Things begin heating up... the competition, the times in private, and the threats that lead them to believe that maybe Celia was not killed at random but was, rather, targeted and one of the men could be next. Brett was a strong character, before and after. Rylan was cool before but became a bit annoying for a while after. The secondary cast was varied and interesting. Chemistry was totally a non-issue and their interactions were good. The dialogue was mostly good but, again, the pre-incident was more pleasant than the post-incident facet. The plot was interesting and usually entertaining but some parts felt slower and less dynamic, making it more difficult to read through without a break. The conflicts were all self-imposed and needed to be gone. Predictability was low/moderate. The conclusion was a little transparent here and there and I felt somewhat cheated by the abrupt ending. . Rating: [R] ~ Score: 3.9 ~ Stars: 4 ========================== ⭐ ⭐ **** Disclosure of Material: I received a copy of this book from the Author/Publisher with the hope that I would voluntarily leave unbiased and unsolicited feedback. I was not asked, encouraged, or required to leave a review - nor was I compensated in any way.

    4.5 edge of your seat stars.

    ♥¸.•´♥¸.•*´♥¨) ♥¸.•*¨♥ (¸.•´♥ (¸.•`♥"Skating, performing, is all about being in control. I want that control in someone else's hand for the other parts of my life." ~Ryland When his sister died, Brett had no other thought but to find out why. The mystery surrounding her death left a bitter taste in his mouth and he was determined to find answers. With her skating partner Rylan back in his life after years of being on the periphery, Brett's knew he was done for. There was just something about the olympic ice skater that kept drawing the former hockey star in. His deep attraction and consequent needs raised more questions than answers. Never being attracted to Rylan before, Brett was indeed surprised to find himself in the younger man's realm. "Rylan had lost his best friend and professional partner." For Rylan, being so close to his childhood crush was like a dream come true. Yet with so much going on in his life, the loss of his friend seemed far greater when everything lay so close to home. I loved Rylan's spirit, his tenacity and his directness. He knew his need for Brett and suddenly he was not on the shy spectrum anymore. Here was a man who was willing to lay t all at Brett's feet and be mastered. Littered with BDSM 101 and scorching passion, Brett and Rylan must work together to find the person or persons responsible and figure out how to be together even when circumstances change. I voluntarily and honestly reviewed this book without bias or persuasion from the author.
