Step into the Honey Club, where every sensual boundary will be tested in search of the ultimate pleasure…

Branch doesn’t exist. Living off the grid, he’s looking for a way to forget his past and the guilt that plagues him. But no woman has ever been able to bring him to the edge he craves.

After a traumatic experience of her own, Evangeline stepped away from the decadent world of the Honey Club. But when she gets Branch’s offer—to play without boundaries or commitments—it’s too tempting for her to refuse.

As their passion ignites, Evangeline and Branch push each other to their farthest limit, fulfilling their darkest desires while falling harder and deeper than they ever imagined.

 

✮✮✮A delicious world of erotica, BDSM with alpha-subs and their Dommes, and a gripping love story…Welcome to The Bee’s Honey!

The second standalone title in New York Times bestselling author Kristen Ashley’s Honey Series, THE FARTHEST EDGE is a seductive and rich love story releasing June 6, 2017! Order your copy today! ✮✮✮

K.A. absolutely delivers on the dirty, raw, filthy, oh so good sexy sex in The Farthest Edge.  

I had no idea what to expect since I hadn’t read the first book in the series, and this was my first “erotica” K.A. book.  But in true Kristen Ashley fashion, she not only delivers her vintage style, she goes above and beyond in making those pages sizzle in my hot little hands.  I need a cold shower stat!

K.A. writing style, if you don’t already know, is as unique as her uber alpha heroes.  To me, it’s classic K.A. and I love it!  Branch and Evangeline’s story was not what I usually read.  I dip my toes every now and then in erotica.  I’m just not always in the mood.  But this was a Kristen Ashley book…so erotica or not I was there.  I was also very curious about the theme.  I’ve read my share of bdsm but I can’t say that I gravitate to the Domme and her sub as much as I would prefer to read about a Dom and his sub.  With that said, I found this story enthralling.  Totally and utterly enthralling, I was swept away, yearning for hea for Branch and Angie.  My sweet broken alpha, Branch….I was gutted by his character.  I was so wrapped in Branch’s story that I completely forgot that Angie was even a domme.

Evangeline has had it rough too.  When the unthinkable happens she steps away from the scene, away from the sex club, Honey.  Branch comes into her life at that perfect moment, perfect for both of them.  I loved getting a glimpse inside her head.  In my mind this was totally Branch’s story but without Angie’s pov it wouldn’t have worked at all.  I thought her character was beautifully written.  What she’s able to give Branch, it’s everything.  Her scenes with him are so emotionally charged and I don’t think I’ve ever been so connected to a sex scene like I was with The Farthest Edge.  Her relationship with Branch allows healing and honestly, I’ve never thought of bdsm being healing.

There were times when I wanted more story.  More substance is what I’m used to with K.A. and there were a few times when I felt like a story line, while minor, could have been developed in order to show more of Evangeline’s growth in the story.  None of that would stop me from reading this delish book over and over again!

Aryas knew her.

He knew what she liked.

He knew how she played.

He knew exactly what would make her squirm in her seat.

And he knew precisely how long it had been since she’d had her kink.

“You’re throwing down the gauntlet,” she accused quietly.

“You feel like picking up the glove?” he shot back, shaking the piece of paper at her.

She stared into Aryas’s eyes.

No strings.

Anything she wanted to do to get him off.

When he was done with her, he’d vanish from her life.

Her gaze dropped to the paper.

“Be you, and we’ll make it interesting, lay five grand on that fucker, he’ll give you one go and then he’ll move on,” Aryas pushed, but it was a dare.

She looked back at him.

A dare.

Yes, he knew her.

“No reflection on you and your skills, which are sublime, my beautiful baby.” He grinned wicked grin. “Just that this guy is unbreakable. There’s no edge for him any Domme can get anywhere near to push him off and that’s what he’s looking for. Being taken to the farthest edge and shoved right the fuck over.”

Taken to the farthest edge.

Evangeline was not into that. She wasn’t into extreme. Not like many who were into that in the life.

No, the edges she coasted were exactly what Aryas wasn’t quite saying, but she read this guy couldn’t handle.

Unless he had the right Mistress to lead the way.

Damn it all, she was getting wet.

“Five grand?” she snapped.

Aryas pressed his lips together and she was too peeved to get more peeved that he did it to suppress his amusement.

He unpressed them to confirm, “Five grand. But Leenie, babe, just to get it straight, he walks away from you at first meet, we’re even. It’s only if you get a crack at him the bet is on.”

She lifted her nose at the same time she snatched the paper from his hand, declaring, “He won’t walk away.”

“He might,” Aryas said gently, and his sudden loss of humor and careful tone made her focus on him again. “Beware of that. He’s done it before. In some ways, he doesn’t give a shit about anything. In some ways, he can be frustratingly choosy.”

“If I want him, he walks away, I’ll still get him,” she announced.

And don’t miss the first standalone title in the Honey Series,

THE DEEP END!

About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
