Step into the Honey Club, where every sensual boundary will be tested in search of the ultimate pleasure…

Branch doesn’t exist. Living off the grid, he’s looking for a way to forget his past and the guilt that plagues him. But no woman has ever been able to bring him to the edge he craves.

After a traumatic experience of her own, Evangeline stepped away from the decadent world of the Honey Club. But when she gets Branch’s offer—to play without boundaries or commitments—it’s too tempting for her to refuse.

As their passion ignites, Evangeline and Branch push each other to their farthest limit, fulfilling their darkest desires while falling harder and deeper than they ever imagined.

I was so thrilled to dive back into the sensual and provocative world that Kristen Ashley has created with her Honey Series. I was also thrilled that THE FARTHEST EDGE was Evangeline’s book! You will remember her from book one in the series, THE DEEP END, but this book can also be read as a complete standalone, but to get more richness out of the series, I would definitely start off with THE DEEP END, just so you get a feel of what you are about to get into, because this is not your typical Kristen Ashley romance. You will be shocked. You will be entertained. You will be entranced with what this author and these characters have to offer!

“I need you to sway my world right about now, Angie.”

THE FARTHEST EDGE is a shiver-inducing romance that brings all of the feels with each turn of the page. It’s laced with raw emotion and a heart wrenching storyline. It packs a punch with every word…every paragraph…ever chapter. I couldn’t put it down, not even for a second. 

Evangeline’s spirit and her love of the lifestyle has been broken. Her trust was broken, along with her heart and soul. Branch is an elusive man. He is a broken man. He is an alpha-sub in need of a heavy hand. That’s all he needs and nothing more. Will his NEED bring her SPIRIT back to life? 

“If I could give it, one woman on this earth I’d give it to, it’d be you, Evangeline.”

From the very start, I just didn’t know how these two would get a happily ever after. But I should have known better. Kristen Ashley never disappoints. She just makes you work your ass off, makes you experience the rawness and grittiness of the emotions that fly off of every single page, before we get that HEA. Two broken people find solace in each other’s arms. They find pleasure in the pain and there is A LOT of pain and pleasure to be had. Between the heated back and forth and the insane sizzling chemistry and the deep-rooted emotional upheaval of it all, there was just no putting this baby down once I started. That’s what Ms. Ashley does best. She pulls you in. You become addicted. She feeds that addiction, and only makes it grow with each new story that is released. No matter the genre, I will ALWAYS be a fan of Kristen Ashley’s work.

She sighed and began, “Aryas—“

“Get you don’t want to and won’t push it. Hope you do. Hope you get over it. Hope you come back to us and to you in all the ways you should do that. You can’t find that in you…” He shrugged but didn’t stop coming at her. “That’s the way it is. I can’t push that. You gotta find that in you. But connecting with you. Seeing where you’re at. Getting you to come back to the family. Taking your pulse is only part of why I asked you here. I also got another reason.”

Evangeline took another sip of her coffee before she asked, “And what’s that?”

“Got a sub for you.”

She blinked and her stomach pitched. 

“Sorry?” she queried.

“Perfect for you. No strings. No boundaries. This guy is not looking to connect. He’s not looking for a relationship. Hell, sheer number of Dommes he goes through, you might only get one crack at him before he vanishes from your life. But at least you’ll get off the way you like it that one time. And if you can keep him around awhile, you might have some fun, break yourself back in, give yourself what you need, without any baggage.”



That all sounded way too good to be true. 

But still. 

“I’m not…I don’t think…” She swallowed. “I’m not ready for that, and to be honest, Ary, I’m not sure I’ll ever go back there.”

“Fool thing to think, more fool thing to do,” Aryas returned instantly. “Especially when you got a chance to have a go with this guy. You got a shot at a guy like this guy, you should take it. And I mean that for you. Only for you. For where you’re at. For what I suspect you need about now. He doesn’t want to hold hands. He doesn’t want to share a drink in the hunting ground. He doesn’t want you to give him your number or stake your claim on him in the club or anywhere. He wants you to get him off and he’s open to anything you wanna do to pull that off.”

He’s open to anything you wanna do to pull that off. 

She fought squirming in her seat and it made her angry. 

This was not a part of her life anymore.

About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
