    One thought on “The Edge of the Earth”

    1. God, I really had no idea what to expect when I started this, but I really loved it. More angsty than I was expecting. And although I enjoy her BDSM works a lot, the sex was just right for the story.

    2. I decided to read this because I liked her BSDM series Club Mephisto under Annabel Joseph. I saw many were labeling this her vanilla book. I don’t consider this a vanilla book due to the extreme subject matter than happens. This happens in the middle of the book and took it in a whole other direction than what the beginning of the book was. I struggled with how to even rate or review this. So I will break it into 3 pieces. First part of book: Charlotte Rowe organizes other people’s life for [...]

    3. Yes, I will follow Molly Joseph to The Edge of the Earth and anywhere else her stories take me. Molly Joseph is Annabel Joseph's vanilla counterpart. Or as vanilla as an Annabel Joseph counterpart can be. Either way, sign me up cause this author can bring the heat both with the sexiness and the intricacies of the story itself.
The Edge of the Earth is not a light story, which may be hard for some people to deal with. It might have triggers for some people. However, I thought that it was nice t [...]

    4. I feel a bit bad giving this three stars, because I already knew that the only vanilla romance writer who works for me is Georgette Heyer. Yes, the author writes BDSM romances under the name Annabel Joseph, but this one is correctly marketed as mainstream. I'm really kind of puzzled by the people who say it isn't vanilla - maybe they're not aware how much violence can be found in mainstream romance?First, the good news. I think it must be a romance convention that the hero must let the heroine d [...]

    5. Deeply moving but difficult to take in other parts. The first part of the book concentrates on our two main characters, Charlotte and Will. They are together 24/7 and their story is very moving. (view spoiler)[ Then when the war breaks out and Charlotte is taken, it was too tough to read and I had to skim through it. It wasn't that it was too graphic, but it was too emotionally difficult to read, especially when Charlotte was taken and Will had to walk away(hide spoiler)]. Once Charlotte was bac [...]

    6. Molly/Annabel Joseph knows how to tell a story. This was very different from the other books I have read by her. At first it felt as the female lead Charlotte would fit into a chick lit novel, as well as the male lead Will. Then the tone of the story changed. It became angsty gritty which also moved on to a HEA. This is very good story!

    7. at about 15%, and slightly hung up on the unusual use of the word "buggered". strange thing to notice, perhaps- but as an Aussie that uses the word rather a lot, it sticks out a bit. We definitely don't use it to mean 'bothered' :) (and as far as I know, neither do the Poms)actual review to come

    8. Not sure what I thought of this book.The only thing I know for sure, it wasn't a vanilla story! Will have to think about this one and update this review at a later time.
