“I feel that I got sucker-punched by the major twist of the story, but I also cannot deny that I was immersed in the story from the beginning until the end.
~ Under the Covers

J.T. Geissinger has become an auto-read for me, so I was surprised when I missed the release of this book. Of course, when I saw it, I excitedly jumped right in without reading the blurb. While I trust and usually expect certain things from Geissinger’s books, I did not expect the twisted turn of events in this book. I suppose I was comfortably enjoying the sexy romance, humor, and mystery of Mr. Blackwood. And then, bam!!! Something happened and it just stopped me in my blissfully happy tracks. I had to reread a few times and I was left scratching my head confused and trying to accept what just happened.

I’m not going to deny that I didn’t enjoy the direction Geissinger took the story. I feel that I got sucker-punched by the major twist of the story, but I also cannot deny that I was immersed in the story from the beginning until the end. There was something about the connection between Olivia and James that I could not stop reading about. I knew their plan for a temporary relationship was going to be a bust and I was sure it would have been a lasting one. They made me laugh and the mystery between them was so intriguing that I couldn’t stop reading about them. Yes, I do wish the outcome was a little different but enjoyed this book just the same.

Readers’ opinion will be divided on this book. You will either love it or hate it. As for me, I will tell you that I loved it and rating it four stars out of five. If you decide to give this book a chance, a little tip…don’t let your guard down.

About J.T. Geissinger

J.T. Geissinger’s debut novel, Shadow’s Edge, was published in 2012 and was a #1 Amazon US and UK bestseller in fantasy romance and romance series. She has been nominated for the prestigious RITA® award from the Romance Writers of America for best paranormal romance for her second book in the Night Prowler series, Edge of Oblivion.

A life-long lover of reading and a self-professed “book addict,” she didn’t realize her dream of writing a novel until a milestone birthday forced her to take stock of her goals in life. Always believing the right time to commit to putting pen to paper would magically announce itself, it took waking up one cold January morning with a shiny new zero as the second number in her age to kick start her determination.
Starting on that very day, she wrote what would become Shadow’s Edge in a little over four months and submitted it to several literary agents. Nothing happened. Thinking that was the end of that but by no means willing to give up on her dreams of being published, she began work on a second manuscript.
Then, during a trip to Italy in honor of their 10th wedding anniversary and the honeymoon she and her husband never took, she received an email that would change her life. It was from an agent, Marlene Stringer of Stringer Literary, and it contained the three words every aspiring author longs to hear: “I loved it.”

Marlene sold the manuscript to Montlake Romance who published it six months later. Hitting the #1 Amazon bestseller lists within weeks of publication, Shadow’s Edge was book one of the Night Prowler novels. Book two, Edge of Oblivion, was published in October 2012 and will be followed by Rapture’s Edge in June 2013, and Edge of Darkness in fall 2013. There are six books total planned for the series.

  1. I ugly cried so hard during the twist part of the book and felt very betrayed by the author 🙁 Had a severe book hangover and had to resort to a bunch of funny and paranormal re-reads after failing to get into other new books. It is not a romance at all.
