Publisher's Summary

Mary "The Edge" Reynolds is the most sought-after back-office operative around - the creative genius pulling the ultimate badasses out of impossible situations. She’s never failed on a mission, and she’s not about to fail on the most important mission ever - keeping her newly designed security system safe. Relying on others isn’t in her nature, but the newly formed Arsenal is her only hope for escape when she’s kidnapped.

She is the Edge.

The Edge never breaks.

Never quits.

Dylan Mason and his brothers have put everything on the line to form The Arsenal. When the paramilitary arena is rocked by Edge’s capture, he’ll do whatever it takes to get the fearless operative back, but his wary heart isn’t ready to handle the vulnerable woman buried beneath the hardened shell. Getting her back was simple. Keeping her and her "security system" HERA out of enemy hands is another story.

Together they must hunt down the faction behind her capture and subsequent torture to keep HERA from becoming an unstoppable terroristic threat. What they uncover could destroy them both.

Be patient

The beginning was so mixup and slow I almost returned it. I enjoyed the balance of it was not the normal I MAN IM IN CHARGE.

Love stories that women start off strong, stay strong and are not maintain by a man body parts.

Amazing Start to the series

I grabbed this book from Amazon when it was free but I also purchased the audiobook copy of it as well and I am sooooo glad I did. The narrator, Olivia Amayo, did a phenomenal job with bringing this story to life.

There were parts of this book that gutted me, I mean take this quote for instance: “I still hear your words from that night. I’ve gotta know you hear me, Mary. You are not disposable. You are more than Edge. So, give whatever you’ve gotta give of yourself so Edge can do her thing, but when I ask you to, step back and settle into the calm, be Mary. She’s who I’m protecting, not Edge.”
Did you catch the part where Mary thinks she's disposable, seriously?!?! Heart wrenching, truly heart wrenching.

dont start a romance off with a rape...

The story starts with a torture/rape scene that put me off from the beginning and the narrator is one of the worst I've heard. There isn't any real distinction between voices and when there is, it's sporadic lines of a male voice with this random southern twang or a female voice that sounds like the uninterested woman who picks up if you call the dmv or post office.
I keep trying to give it a chance because after a terrible start the story isn't completely horrible but it isn't compelling and getting past the narration is a hard sell.
I'm going to give it another shot but will likely return because I don't even want the reminder of this mess in my library never mind the waste of time and money.

Storyline great- heroine’s negative talk image nauseating

The storyline is great,however, the goal of any book is to immerse reader. Mary’s character frustrated me and brought me out of the world of the Arsenal. She was supposed to be a bad ass but her continuous negative self talk was TOO much plus the narrator’s voice lacked personality. She had me wanting to throw my pillow!

Amazing!

Wow!! This book is aptly named. Cara Carnes has written an incredibly engaging romantic suspense. The storyline is well balanced with intense and even poignant scenes. The characters are interesting, capable, dedicated, loyal, and formidable. Dylan Mason and his six brothers, a paramilitary and special ops company, own a private security company. After finding out members of the Edge security group, Mary, and her friend Vi, are captured, they take on the rescue mission.

The narrator, Olivia Amayo, did a phenomenal job of bringing this story to life. She portrayed the characters' personalities and emotions very nicely. Overall, this is a fantastic listen with a quality plot and characters; I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Definitely worth listening to

The voice actor for Jagged Edge is thoroughly engaging and retained my attention throughout - to the extent that I really didn't want my normal everyday life to get in the way of listening. She brought the characters to life in a way that coincided with how imagined they would like. To say I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook is an understatement 💕

whole little story going on!!

first time read for me with this author and boy did she pack a lot of information into one book. the research on all the technical Ops is absolutely amazing and I'd love to know how she got all that information. for a while they're it sounded like the story was like a misfiring rifle I couldn't get my head around the amount of different subplots she had written in. the writing seems to be something very subtle and you need to concentrate or you will miss one of the many subplots bearing down on you. there's a lot of unspoken surprises that creep in to the Black Ops side and a lot of unspoken simple plot dialogue that you have to guess by putting 2 and 2 together. I think it was too much to ask one narrator to do this job there was a lot of players in this book and I think having duo or more narrator's would have made it a bit easier to concentrate on. also this book has been described as erotica. I don't believe this is the case at all I have read books like this with heavier sex scenes. Seems to me the likes of Lora Leigh and Sylvia Day are more along the lines of erotica romance. Carnes seemed to have so many stories in her mind that she tried to push them all out and keep you on your toes, however I seem to have to go back and listen again for me to get it and truly understand what she was writing. all-in-all the pace was fast the steamy seems where moderate and there was so many little problems going on that were miraculously fixed by HERA and that little Beauty was invented of course by girls, Kickass girls at that
