Title: Edge of Recovery
Author: Molly E Lee
This is the fifth book in the Love on the Edge series but the third book with the same set of characters, they should be read:
I absolutely loved the other books in this series but wasn’t expecting this to be Justin’s story, I went in blind without reading the blurb .. as per usual. I wasn’t sure where this was going to go and at what point we were joining in the story so I have to say I started off a bit nervous!
There was absolutely nothing to be nervous about, what a fantastic story! I literally read this in one day, absolutely flew through it. The story flows beautifully, the characters are flawed and fantastic. This is an amazing story of finding yourself and your inner strength, how it is never too late to change your life but the only person that can do that is you.
Addiction is so hard and there are so many people that lose the battle every year, this is a subject that touches me personally, as I’m sure it does many. And I guess that is where my initial hesitation came from, there are so many that don’t win this battle, how hard will it be to read that and process those emotions and internal struggle as a reader.
It is beautifully, delicately written, just enough that we know what he is going through without drowning in his sorrow but elating in his joy. This was an absolute joy to read and I will definitely be recommending to many people!
I thought second chances only happened to good, decent people.
Not the broken and damaged monsters like me.
But it did.
And I can’t control it.
But I need to.
Charlie is my sponsor, the one person I’m not supposed to touch, but my heart has locked on to her and is finally beating after years of barely moving.
I’m in over my head in more ways than one, and as I try to be the man she sees behind the monster, I only sink deeper, two sides of myself battling for clarity. The one that dares to hope, and the one that already knows I’ll lose everything.
I’m terrified my jagged past will slice her to ribbons but as my sponsor she’s obligated to dig up all the broken pieces and try to put them back together.
I don’t know what scares me more, who she’ll find when she’s done, or how far she’ll run once she realizes the truth.
