Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance
Vince Russo, playboy extraordinaire and the self-proclaimed king of one night stands has a love 'em and leave 'em attitude, a kick-ass nightclub, and no desires beyond those of the flesh. Until he sets eyes on Krysta--the fiery, smart mouthed, bartender who has turned him into a walking erection.
Krysta Taylor has a wicked lust crush on her sexy boss, Vince. She fantasizes about him constantly, flirts with him incessantly, and he never seems to notice. Why? Because she's not a tall, busty, blonde with minimal brain cells. She's not his type—until she asks him to have a threesome.

It is said that women run hot then cold. In LOVE AT THE EDGE, playboy and head bartender Vince easily takes the title for running hot then cold. He repeats this process several times at poor Krysta's expense. Krysta, the newly promoted bar manager, is stuck reporting to Vince – making this another complication. How is this fair to Krysta? It could possibly cause issues at the resort they work at and perhaps one of them needs to leave.
In the previous two books in this series, Vince is the good guy, the friend with the great love advice. Now instead of the shoulder to cry on, he's a cad causing the woman to cry. Ms. Miller shows us a not too flattering side of Vince. Vince's idiocy aside, the sex in this book is turned up. The naughty role playing as well as the hint of kinkiness spices this story up. A brush with ménage leaves the reader panting and railing at the denial. Yet again, Ms. Miller does a great job of describing every location so it's easy to visualize and feel as if one is there. The office, balcony, nightclub and cottage are all easily brought to life in the reader's mind.
The love story and conflict is a bit sadder this time because there were previous hurts that made a character more understandable. It makes a reader gasp with a little "oh" and wince when a past pain is revealed. While one can argue this is just fiction, this situation does happen in real life. It never ceases to amaze me how cruel a person can be to someone they are physically intimate with. In this, Ms. Miller is true to a contemporary romance. Fortunately, this is a romance which resolves in a happily ever after. This book is recommended to romance lovers who love the sexy bad boy.
