    I truly enjoyed the book. Fun and quick read- I too couldn't put it down and stayed up way too late to finish it!

    You and me both! Having the print copy in my hands will complete the dream. :) Our cover artist emailed me this week for information for the back cover, so it shouldn't be too much longer!

    I read it this past weekend, and I couldn't put it down! I couldn't sleep until I finished it last night--which was probably not a good idea since we were losing an hour. It was such an engaging story and kept me wanting more. I really felt the chemistry between Sergei and Emily leap off of my Kindle. Great job with this book TanithandBenFan/Jennifer! :) Writing an Amazon review for it after my finals are over is on my to-do list!

    Thank you so much! Emily and Sergei are near and dear to my heart, so it makes me so happy to hear you say that. I'm working hard on the next chapter of their story. :) Thanks in advance for the Amazon review!

    Romancing the Book is holding a contest where you can win the soundtrack to Life on the Edge. The CD has most of the music mentioned in the book, including the pieces used for skating. You can see the track listing and enter here!

    I just got this last night and read it (couldn't put it down once I started!), and I thought the story was great - my only gripe, and this is a relatively minor one, is that the text in the e-book was hard set to some dark grey color in many parts of the book, forcing me to switch from the "white on black" view I normally use on my Kindle Fire to using a light background, because otherwise the text was basically invisible and unreadable.

    Thanks so much!!!! That's weird about the text. I just got a Kindle this week (the very basic one), and it looks okay on mine, but I've heard of some formatting issues with the Kindle file on a couple of other people's devices (like the first word of a paragraph being separated from the rest). Very bizarre. I'm sorry it was so quirky!
