    One thought on “Off the Edge”

    1. Rating ~4 starsMy binge reading of romantic suspense continues. I read two Carolyn Crane’s books from her the Associates series. I started from the second book because it had kind of a nerdy hero which is what I was looking for at the time.Peter Macmillan is an agent from the Associates, he used to a be a professor however after the death of his fiancee and his parents this all changed. He started using his power of linguistics to identify the individual responsible for the death of his family [...]

    2. Laney is on the run. She sent Rolly, her violent and abusive husband to prison, but he isn't one to forgive and she can never let her guard down. She has landed in Thailand where she works as a singer in a friend's hotelfar from his reach. Until Rolly's second in command and main enforcer walks into the restaurant where she is having lunch. Macmillan is a hunter. But his weapon isn't a gun, it's words. Since he lost everyone he loved in a terrorist attack, he has used their very own words to hun [...]

    3. 3.5You need to suspend your disbelief to fully enjoy this story. Otherwise the ridiculousness of certain parts would be too much. A wounded, recently tortured person can hardly think of sex or carry someone of their back. The timing of sexual scenes is embarrassingly off.However, I liked Laney and her autobiographical songs. She is more believable and likeable than the heroine from the first book. Also, Macmillan's area of expertise is original enough to make me really like this story and the in [...]

    4. So the first book pulled me in so much that I immediately jumped to this one and I must say I loved this. The heroine is a battered wife on the run and the hero is a man who dissects words, speech, his connection with emotions tenuous ever since he lost his family. He sees the heroine and through her songs immediately grasps her whole story but he needs her for access and has no compunction in using her. I must admit though there were many contrived things in the book I just enjoyed the way it w [...]

    5. Laney grinned. “Zero stars. And that’s final.” He watched her. He couldn’t believe the miracle of her, or how beautiful and brave she was. But that wasn’t the phrase, not precisely. She felt good and endless, and he wanted to never stop discovering her.This is the second book in Carolyn Crane Associates Series, a fast paced series set around a group of spies with brains called the Associates. Although this is a series, Off the Edge could be read as a stand alone. The world is outlined [...]

    6. 4.5 stars (I may round up to a 5. For now, a 4. Need to let the book high settle down. ;) Smart, Sexy Romantic SuspenseLoved it! Review to comeC provided by author in exchange for reviewing book #1. Reviewing this book (#2) is optional.

    7. 3.5 starsI'm really excited for Carolyn Crane new release as usual. I've read most of her books and I love Book 1 Against the Dark featuring Cole, the math expert and Angel, the safe cracker. This time we have Peter Maxwell Macmillan, the linguist expert, who was cool, dapper and together. Hmm love these brainiac men. The things he can deduced from listening to someone talking was simply fascinating. I kinda felt afraid to talk in front of him, worried he might discover my deepest secrets."When [...]

    8. I went into this book hoping that Macmillan would have to suffer and be brought down to his knees for being a huge douche in the last book, but I was left sorely disappointed. Instead, like the last book, the heroine, Laney, forgives him rather easily. And actually, this book just felt like a lazy rehash of the first at times. Repeating a single trope or element isn't necessary bad, but when you're doing it two, three, five, (etc) timeswell, it starts feeling like I'm looking at the same image, [...]

    9. 3.5 starsOriginally posted at The Book Nympho    The suspense in Off the Edge takes center stage. With the mission and running from Laney's ex the action and emotions run high. But don't worry there's enough romance and sexy to keep romance lovers happy.Laney is an american living in Bangkok. Sounds exotic, right? Yeah it would be if she wasn't hiding from her ex. Then she meets a handsome stranger that knows all the right things to say and is deadly as hell.Peter is in Bangkok on a mission [...]

    10. Got to read an early copy and loved this just as much as the first in the series. The suspense and sexiness is a perfect balance! I want more of the Associates!

    11. this review was originally published at All About RomanceRomantic suspense is one of the most "difficult to do well" sub genres in romance. If the romance works the suspense is often weak. If the suspense is fabulous, the romance is often unbelievable.But those of us who like romantic suspense got lucky in 2013. Carolyn Crane published two books in her The Associates series. The first of these, Against the Dark, is a very good book. The second, Off the Edge, is even better.Peter McMillan was [...]

    12. Off the Edge is the second in the Associates, a romantic suspense series. While I am a fan of Suzanne Brockman’s Troubleshooter series, I tend not to be a fan generally of romantic suspense. For awhile, I thought I might be into romantic suspense but then I realized it was only the Troubleshooters that I loved. So Off the Edge is not in my typical genre. In many romantic suspense novels I tried, I just couldn’t buy into the caper or the suspense part and (I hesitate to say this) in the roman [...]

    13. 4.5 starsThis is an ARC Review originally posted at: loveaffairwithanereaderspOff the Edge is book two in The Associates series by Carolyn Crane. Carolyn Crane writes deliciously complicated stories. They are so smart and clever, it makes me feel smarter after I read them. In Off the Edge, she uses linguistics as the centerpiece of the story. Linguistics is a weapon. I've taken a few linguistic classes in my career and no one has ever made it as fun as Ms. Crane. I bet if language professors cou [...]

    14. 4 Stars for a very interesting suspense story! I loved that it had some of the usual elements- danger, death, etc. but it was an intelligent read. The main characters were basically masters of their words and found that connection. Peter Macmillan Maxwell is a secret agent of sorts who uses his linguistic background as cover. He has a Clark kent appeal to him and I loved it. Laney is like a little changed bird just bursting to get out. The story had lots of layers to it, and alot of those storie [...]

    15. เรื่องนี้ควรจะได้ห้าดาวค่ะ ทั้งพล็อตเรื่อง คาแร็คเตอร์ การดำเนินเรื่องอยู่ในระดับห้าดาวโดยตลอด เหตุผลเดียวที่เรื่องนี้ไม่ได้ห้าดาว เพราะเหตุการณ์ในเรื่องนี้เกิดขึ้นในกรุง [...]

    16. Laney has been hiding in Bangkok from her abusive husband for the last two years, living and working as a singer in a hotel run by her friends. But something doesn't feel right and although her husband is in jail and not due out anytime soon, she can't help feeling he is right on her tail, especially when she thinks she spots his right hand man in Bangkok. Peter Macmillan is an agent for the Association, his secret talent: linguistics. He can track a man just by the way he speaks and at the mome [...]

    17. 4,5 starsThis was my TBRchallenge book for July. Clearly I wasn’t able to participate in the reviewing in July as I finished it after the date we were supposed to post our thoughts on the read books and I’m just now writing up my review of it. The theme for July was Award Nominee or Winner and I choseOFF THE EDGE by Carolyn Crane because it was the 2014 Best Romantic Suspense RITA Award Winner. IIRC it was the first self-pubbed book to win. And wow! I understand why this was a RITA Awards wi [...]

    18. I usually don't do full reviews (these are mostly intended as notes to remind me what it was about.) But this one sent me into a full-size rant. You're hereby warned!This book had everything. A sexy, smart, dangerous hero; exotic settings around the world, like Bangkok; a highly proficient, deadly, secret organization of good guys; international terrorists and gangstas. A well-written plot based on a high-tech scary weapon getting in the wrong hands; a hero who uses an unusual and brainy skill t [...]

    19. My review and an extended sample of the audiobook are posted at Hotlistens.I love the stories in this series, which I’ve listened to out of order. I listened book three last year and enjoyed it. This series consists of a guy who is deep undercover. It is hard to tell if he is a good guy or a bad one. I think the truth lies somewhere in the middle. The heroine for Off the Edge, Laney, is on the run and hiding for a very dangerous man. She is a little naive, but not too bad. There are a few thin [...]

    20. I love a crazy smart, hot hero and Carolyn Crane writes him perfectly. These books are intelligent with well crafted plots. They are also, for the most part, standalone stories. This time around our nerd hero's superpower is linguistics and he used it to save the world and win the girl. Well, he saves the girl too.Peter Macmillan Maxwell is an Association agent. His specialty is linguistics and he needs to use it to find a baddie who has a weapon of mass destruction he plans to auction off to th [...]

    21. I want to like military romance (or, well, this sort of quasi-military romance with vigilante mercenary groups), but I so often find myself with the same complaint: the women are always damsels in distress. I guess that's just part of the sub-genre, but it's something I don't enjoy. I'd much rather read about two strong characters coming together as equals than a story about an idiot woman being rescued over and over again by some sort of mercenary superhero dude. In this set-up, the man saves t [...]

    22. The first third was all knee-highs, knee-highs, knee-highs, and unfortunately, I could not share the male lead's passion for the knee-highs, but I loved the second half of the book when the action started! Carolyn Crane can write some suspense! And feeling and characters, what with Laney's Southernness and Peter's er, Britishness, I think. I loved the nerdery. Also, of course, I'm intrigued by the other characters. Must read Thorne's book now. Four stars for Off the Edge. Onwards!

    23. Last year Carolyn Crane published Against the Dark, the first in this Associates series and I remember how much I liked it – but I think Off the Edge is even better. And just to note, these can be read as total stand alones.Peter Macmillan works for The Associates, a spy-type organization that works on its own bringing down the bad guys – sometimes for the government, sometimes for their own reasons. Peter specializes in linguistics. When he hears someone speak, he analyzes every single litt [...]

    24. Originally Reviewed For: Tea and BookOff the Edge is book two in Carolyn Crane's Association Series. It's a gritty and dark book set in steamy Bangkok, which where for a price you can buy anything. Laney Lancastoryis on the run from a controlling, abusive husband. Sure he has been in prison for two years but Laney knows just how far his power reaches, even behind bars. Having escaped the states with the help of a friend and her family, Laney has been living on nothing but nerves and instinct and [...]

    25. Listened for Review (Tantor)Overall Rating: 4.50Story Rating: 4.50Character Rating: 4.50Audio Rating: 4.00First Thought when Finished: Off the Edge by Carolyn Crane was unique, full of suspense, and I really liked Mac and Laney to boot!Overall Thoughts1: Laney, Laney, Laney--you were a totally unique leading lady. Smart, sassy, but also a little dense. I don't know why but that made me love you!2: Mac! I would seriously let you dissect my linguistics anytime :)3: Setting--Holy Globe-Trotting! Th [...]

    26. This was a great introduction to this author for me. I really liked this book. I did kind of see it a little similar (crossover in my brain, not the actual story itself) with Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom. This story took place in Bangkok, in the cheesy section Laney is hiding, as a lounge singer, from an abusively controlling husband who has a far reach & MacMillan is undercover trying to thwart an arms deal. Their worlds collide by accident & then they have to deal with all of [...]

    27. Ohhh I was expecting a couple like in the previous book, but instead I found a likable hero and a poetry-sprouting heroine!I'm soooo disappointed!!!Laney was such an idiot! How could Peter fall for her????!!!! Grrrrr!!!!

    28. OMG< linguist spy/secret agent!!! Can it get better than this! And what a wild ride - lots of suspense and a most passionate/intense love story - best combination! <3

    30. Posted at Yummy Men & Kick Ass ChicksOff the Edge is the second book in Carolyn Crane’s The Associates romantic suspense series. This is a series that features super smart-geeky-extra sexy heroes. Love that!
