Title: Edge of Chaos
Author: Molly E Lee
This is the first in the Love on the Edge series.
I love that Molly picks such unusual subjects to work with, this is not my first Molly book, meteorology … wow okay!
Well young love certainly has a lot to answer for. Molly has a fantastic way of showing us how our childhood experiences of love shape our view of ourselves, our worth and what love looks like!
We start our story with Blake and Justin as young adults, starting to make their way in life together. We go on a journey where Blake finds her passion, her dreams and ambitions and where in this big world it takes her.
There are some amazing scenes in this book and a few bits that really capture the essence for more me are below:
“I would have you realise that the woman you are deserves better than the man he is”
Don’t we all want a man that can see and value our true worth as a person? Not just as a wife or a mother or a friend?
“True love is friendship set on fire.”
It most definitely is! It’s safe to say my husband is my best friend, he’s the man I rang and screamed at when one of my fave authors announced at my first signing, he’s the man who held me when I lost my father. He’s the one who is there in the morning and the evening and all the time in between if I need him.
I am a lucky one, one that found this type of love in my life and it’s fantastic to see how clearly that journey can be depicted.
That being said, I know a lot more about clouds now! I loved the storm chasing scenes! How something so terrifying and destructive can also be beautiful and captivating. As well as the parallels it drew with her life, often tumultuous and sometimes leaving complete devastation.
A fantastic read!
Blake Caster has been in an emotionally abusive relationship with Justin for so long, she can’t tell what is normal anymore, and so she clings to the one thing that is solidly hers—her passion for extreme weather.
Three years into her Meteorology degree, Blake meets professional storm chaser, Dash Lexington, who is as gorgeous as he is daring. Instantly recognizing her passion and skills in analyzing weather data, he makes a spot for her on his tight-knit storm chasing team. Dash and Blake form a fast friendship and it forces her to realize just how toxic her relationship with Justin is. She can’t deny the lightning-worthy chemistry she has with Dash or how her heart stalls every time he gets too close to a tornado.
With each chase and the cherished moments with Dash, Blake discovers her own self-worth and gains the strength to end things with Justin for good. But he won’t go easily. As Blake tries to sever ties with one man, she fears she’ll lose the other to his dangerous obsession—and she doesn’t know if she’ll be enough to save him from the impending storm that could end them all.
