Razor’s Edge #Review
Posted by brriske
Luce Potter lives by a code of honor. Push her and she shoves back, harder. There’s only one problem: Luce has just found out that revenge is a knife that cuts both ways. Now that her lover Brooke has survived the attack on her life, Luce has only one thing on her mind, and his name is Frank. Unfortunately, someone walks into her life that she didn’t see coming.
Brooke Erickson has survived an attack so brutal it’s left a permanent scar on her soul. All she wants to do now is go home and finish recuperating with her lover, Luce Potter, by her side. An unexpected event puts Brooke at the head of the Yakuza family. Can she command the respect necessary to lead it through the crisis?
Luce and Brooke’s worlds are upending. Can each do what’s necessary to survive and return to a new normal?
Yakazuta Luce has been kidnapped and is being held prisoner by the Russian mob. This, after they attempted to kill her girlfriend Brooke and Luce in turn, kidnapped the leader’s wife and they want her back. While Luce is missing Brooke must step up and make some difficult decisions to keep Luce’s organization in place. This is I believe the third book in this series and I’ve not really read a lot about Japanese organized crime, maybe if I had started from the beginning or knew more about Japanese culture I would have enjoyed it more, my biggest problem though was I felt that the two main characters Luce and Brooke were incongruent from scene to scene. I would imagine being a Yakazuta, you’d have to be somewhat of a bad ass, but I didn’t find Luce to be. On the flip side, Brooke was portrayed to be a good girl out of her element, and she had more bad ass moments. There were also some editing issues that detracted from the story. I rate this book 3.5 hearts.
