Blake Caster has been in an emotionally abusive relationship with Justin for so long, she can’t tell what is normal anymore, and so she clings to the one thing that is solidly hers—her passion for extreme weather.
Three years into her Meteorology degree, Blake meets professional storm chaser, Dash Lexington, who is as gorgeous as he is daring. Instantly recognizing her passion and skills in analyzing weather data, he makes a spot for her on his tight-knit storm chasing team. Dash and Blake form a fast friendship and it forces her to realize just how toxic her relationship with Justin is. She can’t deny the lightning-worthy chemistry she has with Dash or how her heart stalls every time he gets too close to a tornado.
With each chase and the cherished moments with Dash, Blake discovers her own self-worth and gains the strength to end things with Justin for good. But he won’t go easily. As Blake tries to sever ties with one man, she fears she’ll lose the other to his dangerous obsession—and she doesn't know if she’ll be enough to save him from the impending storm that could end them all.
Edge of Chaos is author Molly E. Lee’s first novel; although with her talent for grabbing a reader so strongly in the prologue this surprised me!
“There are patterns to everything, even chaos.”
Blake Caster has known her boyfriend Justin since she was ten years old. He was her first everything and they have been through a lot together. But lately his mood swings and the emotional abuse is too much too handle. Diving into her passion for extreme weather and working on her degree in Meteorology, she meets gorgeous storm chaser Dash Lexington.
“Dash Lexington. The freaking gatekeeper to all my weather fantasies.”
Dash notices Blake’s’ love for analyzing weather data and asks her to join his storm chasing team. Finally getting to do something for herself and that she really loves, Blake’s true personality shines through- she finally has a chance to make true friends and be part of a team. The changes in Blake makes Dash sit up and take notice and the chemistry between these two is definitely steamy.
Blake is ready to move on with her life and give into her feelings for Dash- but Justin has other plans and he doesn’t plan to go away quietly.
“I want every piece of you, because I know who you are, and I’ve never loved anyone as intensely as I do you.”
Okay so Justin is a compete douche and waste of space. There I said it. Honestly it was hard for me to not scream at my kindle anytime Justin was mentioned and especially with the way he isolated Blake from everyone and the way he treated her. Obviously this was his plan, but it didn’t make it easier to read. I liked how Molly allowed the friendship to really build between Blake and Dash and that their relationship wasn’t rushed.
Ever since the movie Twister, which I’ve watched more times than I can count, I’ve been intrigued with storm chasing and after reading Edge of Chaos, I want to curl on up the couch and watch it all one more time!
“True love is friendship set on fire.”
