Overall enjoyment: 4
Rose Drayton lives on the Edge, between the world of the Broken (where people drive cars, shop at Wal-Mart, and magic is a fairy tale) and the Weird (where blueblood aristocrats rule, changelings roam, and the strength of your magic can change your destiny). Only Edgers like Rose can easily travel from one world to the next, but they never truly belong in either.
Rose thought if she practiced her magic, she could build a better life for herself. But things didn’t turn out how she planned, and now she works a minimum wage, off the books job in the Broken just to survive. Then Declan Camarine, a blueblood noble straight out of the deepest part of the Weird, comes into her life, determined to have her (and her power).
But when a terrible danger invades the Edge from the Weird, a flood of creatures hungry for magic, Declan and Rose must work together to destroy them—or they’ll devour the Edge and everyone in it.
I found On the Edge to be snarky and interesting. Ms, Andrews is a new to me author and I am really just trying to get to know this world she has created.
This is billed as an urban fantasy novel. And with that comes certain expectations. For example, cliff hanger ending of sorts, some in resolved conflict, the heroine not having a HEA, someone’s death, or something drastic has changed in the realm. Not one of these was really true. I would have put this in the paranormal romance genre and added a little more graphic details to the two love scenes in the book and called it a day. I would not have said fantasy at all. Even the cover has a guy on it with a girl, it screams romance to me.
What started out as a blog arming women for he end of civilization as we know it has become a grand sensation. With over 40k views and over 20 authors, GGSA has become blog for the style conscious survival enthusiast.

Hart to Souls
Overall Enjoyment: 5
Terminal loner Jordan Hart sees dead people…and helps them cross to the other side. But when she meets hunky spirit Tom and takes him home with her, Jordan begins to think she’s finally met a man worth keeping.
Too bad he’s already dead.
Jordan has never had a lover like Tom, but knowing their steamy nights can’t last forever, Jordan tires to help Tom discover his true identity so he can cross over. Letting the one person who truly understands her will be the hardest decision of her life and she can’t help but wonder if true love can overcome even death.
I thought the story was cute, well thought out and to the point, although I did figure out the plot pretty quickly. The humor in it was nice and it didn’t seem like she tried to hard. I really enjoyed that Ms. Michaels didn’t make her heroine play hard to get, because who would play hard to get with a hot ghost and no repercussions? I will appoint the sex scenes a 5, because they were scorching hot without being vulgar. This is a very nice little story to read if you only have a couple of minutes and need a pick me up. I would most definitively recommend it to my friends.
