4.5 Rescue Me Stars
At the Edge is the first book in the Alpha Crew series. I didn’t have any expectations for this book and every once in a while I like reading action packed books. At the Edge is a fast pace, addictive read. There’s a damsel in distress Heroine, an alpha male Hero and plenty of surprises along the way to bring a smile to your face.

Emma’s plane goes down and she’s still in the middle of the jungle. I really liked the way the book started. I have this crazy love for Heroines getting trapped somewhere far away. I feel like anything can happen.  Everyone on the private plan is dead and Emma needs to find help.

Ryan is a SEAL, he’s strong, fast and his mission is to rescue any survivors from the plane crash. He has Intel on Emma and she’s at the top of his rescue list. Don’t even get me started on Ryan, gah, all the muscles and all the testosterone, it makes me want to fan myself.

 I liked how Ryan kind of had a background on Emma prior to rescuing her. He was already fascinated by her but when he finally met her, it was like boom. I love it when Emma and Ryan meet. Emma is crazy and all out of sorts being out in the wild for over twenty four hours.  It’s really adorable and cute how Ryan tries to comfort Emma, but at the same time is on the lookout.

The book progresses and we realize Emma isn’t safe. As Emma continues to question the plane crash, someone doesn’t want Emma to find the truth. Emma has no one to turn to, except for Ryan. Ryan battles with his inner emotions, knowing he shouldn’t start anything with her, but his attraction towards her is undeniable.

The tension between Emma and Ryan was good, it was just enough to keep you on your toes, but it wasn’t drawn out where it frustrated me. I really liked the banter between the two.

The thing I really liked about this book is that it was fast pace and short. I know it’s a two part series, but it ended on a high note in my opinion.
