Her patient, Jesse Winslow.
And she’s not about to lose him to Kylie Martin… Again.
Melanie’s 3-Star Review:
Julie A. Richman’s Love on the Edge of Time is a unique love story that defies time itself. I went into this book blind and I have to admit that it took me on an unexpected and surprising journey. I thought that the author did a great job with the plot—very well thought out and creative. I appreciated how different this was compared to all the books I’m accustomed to reading.
There was something so attractive about Jesse’s character that went beyond his rock star image. What I really loved about his character was his courage to clean up after realizing just how messed up his life had become. I always find that a character’s strength is best measured during their darkest hours—much like in real life. By reaching back out to his therapist Claire, Jesse not only opens the possibilities of what his life could lead to when living cleanly and healthy but also discovers a whole new realm through regression therapy.
Kylie who is also a patient of Dr. Claire Stoddard catches Jessie’s eyes from the start. There is this inexplicable pull between them that even they both can’t seem to understand. While there were aspects of Kylie’s character that I admired—like her self-confidence and her love for life, there was also something so baffling about her. It was like, she was one person at certain times and another at other moments. The way her character was introduced was a little strange for me. I honestly thought maybe she had nymphomania issues that she was being treated for but then it turns out that it had nothing to do with it at all… Hrm.
I have to admit, I did have some trouble with the 3rd person narration (as I always do). But there were some steamy scenes in this book that I found so provocative. I loved that there were so many different elements to them – like the settings and the situations that they were in. It was never the same so that kept my interest going. If you are looking for a book unlike most and one that is a change of your normal pace, then I think this one is for you.
This time he didn’t text. He just called, waking her at two-fifteen a.m.
“Bare-ly dressed again tonight?”
Her laugh, filled with sleep was gruff. “Barely dressed every night.”
“What exactly do you have on?”
“A pink tank top and pink silk bikini.”
“Take them off,” he ordered.
“Excuse me,” there was an element of surprise in Kylie’s voice.
“You heard me. Take them off. Now.” Just hearing rustling on the other end of the line, he could feel his cock stiffen and it felt damn good after all this time. Baby, I’m back, he thought.
“We’re having phone sex? But, Jesse, we haven’t even kissed yet,” her protest was weak. And even she knew it.
“Yes, we’re having phone sex, and when I get back to New York, we’re going to do a lot more than kiss. You’ve friend-zoned me, Toots, and I’m busting out.”
Kylie was smiling on her end of the phone. Friend-zoned Jesse Fucking Winslow? Was he serious? “Nobody puts Jesse in a friend-zone,” she couldn’t help herself.
“Are they off?” He totally ignored her joke.
“What was that?” he asked, his voice gruff and serious.
“Yes, they’re off.”
“Okay, spread your legs, and with your phone, take a picture of your pussy for me.”
“Seriously?” She knew she was blushing in the dark.
“Take the picture, Kylie.”
“Okay, but if you sell this to the paparazzi, I will kill you.” There was a rustling sound, then, “Oh, my God, I can’t believe I’m doing this.”
“Okay, here it comes. I hope it’s photogenic. It would be really embarrassing to have a non-photogenic pussy.”
Pulling the phone from his ear to look, Kylie could hear his moan, exciting her even more.
“So photogenic, Toots, just like the rest of you. And I love the red landing strip. It’s so hot. Oh, man, I love this. Spread your legs wider and use one hand to spread your lips open for me and send me another.”
Following his directions, she did as he requested.
