‘EDGE OF THE PAST’ by JENNIFER COMEAUX

My teaser lines are taken from page 136 of my PDF.

So as not to show any spoilers I have not included a synopsis, however, if you want to find out more about the story, just click on the book image, or to read more about both book and author go here

If you don’t really want to read any major spoilers, then you can tease yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story … here.

We weren’t far into the ride home when I glanced at the back seat and discovered Liza had fallen asleep. Her head was cocked to one side, her little pink mouth slightly open.

“She’s always been guarded with most people because of her father. He put a lot of fear in her, told her not to trust anyone.” Sergei’s eyes remained glued to the highway. “I was the only person she really let in.”

As this was an author invitation to read and review, a PDF of ‘Edge Of The Past’ was gifted to me free of charge, by its author Jennifer Comeaux.

This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog articles I may post. Any thoughts or comments will be my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

    • Hi Beth,

      This is the second book in a trilogy, although it is shaping up to work well as a stand alone novel.

      If you enjoy ice skating, this is a contemporary romance, with a distinctly icy appeal to it!

      Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate your comment.

    • Hi Valentina,

      I have already read and enjoyed the first part of this trilogy, so I know the author’s style of writing and the kind of storyline I shall be privy to. Whilst I do enjoy a good romance from time to time, I am not a huge fan of the sickly, slushy kind of love story, so this contemporary love affair, with a realistic back-story, suits me just fine.

      I appreciate your visit and comment.

  • Interesting extract. I love the name Sergei, there’s just something manly about it – can you tell I’m a romance reader at heart? Hope you’re enjoying this one! Thanks for sharing honey.

    • Hi Annie,

      Thanks you so much for deciding to visit Fiction Books today. I love ‘meeting’ new people, so your visits will always be welcome and your comments always appreciated.

      I like to read romance occasionally, although my first choice of genre will always be murder / mystery and suspense / thriller.

      I can see where you might be coming from with the name Sergei, although being much older than yourself (well more than double your age actually), I can remember a film called ‘Beverly Hills Cop 3’ from 1984, when a character called Serge first hit our screens. Serge was anything but manly … if you don’t mind the language, check out the clip and you’ll see what I mean. I can never think of Sergei in quite the same light as yourself!

      It is still a great story though and I recommend it if you like your share of romance.

    • Hi Sandra,

      Sergei is as complex a character, as Emily is naive. The difference in their ages and past history, wasn’t quite so noticeable in the first episode of this saga ‘Life On The Edge’, however as the storyline develops, it seems as though the gaps are starting to appear. The third and final part of the trilogy is going to be the real decider I guess.

      Thanks for visiting today, I always appreciate your comments.

    • Hi Sonia,

      Sergei is not talking about the young child Liza, who sleeps in the back of the car, when he makes his comments, but about her mother, his former partner and ex skater.

      Her father is the sole reason that they are not together and raising their child, however life has moved on for Sergei, or at least he thinks it has, but meeting mother and daugter again is changing his entire perspective on life and he needs to get things back under control.

      Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate you taking the time to comment.

    • Hi Nikki,

      This would always happen when my nieces were young and we had them to stay with us, or took them out for the day. They would both be fast asleep almost as soon as the car pulled off the drive, but would then wake up just as we approached our destination, no matter how far the journey! … Kind of spooky really, don’t you think?

      This isn’t quite the scenario in my teaser lines .. one parent, one step-mother to be, one confused child … a bit like most of real life today then!

      Thanks for stopping by, hope that your week is going well.

    • Hi Naida,

      You are not the first person to comment on liking the name Sergei. It is one of those names which seems to translate well into just about every other language other than English …. so Sergei it is!

      I know how you like a good romance, so I think that this would be the perfect trilogy for you. This is only the second installment I have read, but from what I can gather the sex is all in the hinting and imagination in the three main parts of the trilogy. However, it seems that Jennifer has written a short expose of the couple’s wedding night, called ‘Reaching The Edge’, which has strictly adult content and is only available online, where it is free to download.. I aim to read the books in sequence, but if you want to skip the relationship build-up and get straight to the ‘nitty-gritty’, then this might be good for you.
