About THE FARTHEST EDGE (Erotic Romance Releasing June 6, 2017):

Step into the Honey Club, where every sensual boundary will be tested in search of the ultimate pleasure…

Branch doesn’t exist. Living off the grid, he’s looking for a way to forget his past and the guilt that plagues him. But no woman has ever been able to bring him to the edge he craves.

After a traumatic experience of her own, Evangeline stepped away from the decadent world of the Honey Club. But when she gets Branch’s offer—to play without boundaries or commitments—it’s too tempting for her to refuse.

As their passion ignites, Evangeline and Branch push each other to their farthest limit, fulfilling their darkest desires while falling harder and deeper than they ever imagined.

 

Melanie’s 5-Star Review:

unnamedThe second installment in Kristen Ashley’s Honey series brought back KA’s signature style mixed with what I’d loved most about The Deep End.

A provocative and authentic look into the world of BDSM filled with a heavy dose of swoon and romance. In The Farthest Edge, we are re-introduced to Amelie’s friend Evangeline. If you’d read the first book in this series you’d remember that she underwent  quite a traumatic experience at the place she thought to be her safe haven. Little did she know that her safe haven would come in the form of a haunted, brooding man who would lay his own life to protect hers.

I loved the connection between Branch and Evangeline and not just in the bedroom or the playrooms either. These two were so good for one another’s soul. Set up by Aryas the owner of The Honey Club, he knew from the start that they would be one another’s salvation and boy was he ever right. Now why can’t we all have a naughty Fairy Godfather like him?! There was a vulnerability that lurked behind Branch and Evangeline. Both carrying pasts that in some way have shaped who they have become. Their awareness for each other’s feelings and needs ran deep. This to me showed such tenderness and genuine respect for one another. Trust is a huge aspect in the kind of relationship they share and for Branch to have been betrayed in his past costing loved ones their lives, it takes an infinite amount for him to open up to anyone let alone allow anyone to become a part of his life. I thought that they made the perfect match because of the experiences that they both share. They are able to relate and understand the demons that lurk just around the corner.

If you’d asked me before reading this series if I’d ever get turned on by a male sub and a woman Dom, I’d have surely and quickly told you, “no way.” But the thing about Kristen Ashley is this… She creates the absolute best alpha subs out of her heroes. Branch is the perfect example of this. The thigh clench was undeniably present throughout the entire book. Holy smokes, the heat blazed and it burned me to a crisp. I am in awe of the fact that she was able to turn such a preconceived notion into ash.

The Farthest Edge had a softness to such a sexy story line. While you’d think that the BDSM world could only be filled with kink (though there is that), it is also so much more. Kristen Ashley opens your eyes to discover that this world holds so much more. I loved this book and I most especially loved that it brought back the KA style that I’d fallen quickly in love with after reading my 1st book of hers. It’s a pleasant and comforting reminder that while she pushes the limits with something new and distinct, she keeps intact everything that KA fanatics like me have become obsessed with. So keep the good things going, Ms. Ashley because I along with many others will surely be coming for more.

Excerpt:

He knew this was her playroom before he’d entered but right then he saw that she didn’t hide it under

sheets and tarps, just behind the shutters.

Branch shifted the light around, seeing a horse, a bench, a table, all of them good quality. It cost a mint

to outfit a good playroom and she didn’t make do. She’d been investing. Making smart purchases that

would look good, stand strong during play and last a while.

Fashionable sink in the corner set in an attractive wood vanity, two matching tall, slim cupboards on

each side.

He moved there, looked through the vanity and cupboards. Thick towels. Washcloths. Wet wipes. Soap.

Bottles of foam anti-bacterial. Cleaning supplies. A large box of condoms. A little basket filled with some

cosmetics—powder, lipsticks, gloss. Another filled with first-aid supplies—Band-Aids, bottles of

antiseptic, tubes of ointment, gauze, cotton.

He closed the door to the cupboard he was inspecting, turned and shined the light around the room.

Moving across the space, he noted hooks on the walls, in the ceiling, eyes in the floor, all looking sturdy.

Whoever put them in might have wondered why or he’d been hers. But whoever that was knew what

they were doing.

There was a tall cabinet and a large dresser across the room, both in the wood that made up the vanity

and the cupboards. It all matched, was heavy and dark but attractive, giving the space the definite feel

of playroom, not a dungeon. It was stylish and handsome, even warm, somewhere you’d want to stay

awhile.

He didn’t think on his last thought as he opened the top cupboard doors of the cabinet and shined the

light in, feeling what he found there in his dick.

Cats. Whips. Switches. Flogs. Paddles. Some straps. Some harnesses. All hanging from hooks. All well

organized and well maintained. All also excellent quality. Not many, but again, quality, not quantity, was

what she was clearly going for.

He closed the doors and crouched down to the two drawers at the bottom of the cabinet, opening

them. Top one had silk ropes, some chains, shackles, cuffs. The bottom drawer was full of leather straps

with cinches attached.

Branch straightened, moved to the dresser. Nothing littered the top, so he opened the first drawer.

What he found there made his balls draw up.

Carefully placed in what looked like purple silk-lined, custom-made grooves were her toys.

Plugs. Cocks. Vibrators. The first two in an impressive range of lengths, girths and shapes. If they had

them, remotes were placed at the side of the toy they controlled. There was also a complicated cock

ring, rabbit ears at the front for clit stimulation, and a strap that would lead between the balls to a bullet

that could be inserted in the anus, all of it obviously vibrated—triple the fun.

She like ass.

Not many of her kind didn’t.

He didn’t think on that either.

About Kristen Ashley:

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorizeand she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
