Inn on the Edge by Gail Bridges - Review

By Gail Bridges

Angela and her brand-new husband Josh have just arrived at their honeymoon destination, a romantic bed-and-breakfast hotel on the breath-taking Washington coast - the Inn on the Edge. But everything isn't as it seems. The lessons that come free with the room aren't for painting the lovely coastal scenery - the lessons are for better sex. Angie and Josh, shocked and titillated, immerse themselves in every sensual offering.It doesn't take long for things to go horribly wrong. The discover that the old man running the place is a sex demon, who has been stealing their sensual energy. Worse, he's dangerously in love with Angie and he has plans for her - plans involving an heirloom wedding ring.

Coming soon

My Thoughts: I expected Inn on the Edge to be very sexy after reading a previous book by Gail Bridges. I was definitely not disappointed on that front. I was again intrigued with the creativity that Bridges puts into each scene in a book. They are all incredibly steamy. This book was full of a lot of intrigue, too. I was captivated by what would happen next with the sex demon and Angie.

The characters in this book are interesting. Each of them has a bit of back story that helps to shape who they are at the inn. The easy manipulation that is involved frequently is interesting. I kept waiting for someone to break away from what they were told was right. I liked the dynamics between the couples. I found the guides to be the most fun to read about. I loved how each of the people who were around had some sort of talent.

I thought that even with all the inventive sex in this book, one of my favorite parts was the mystery of the inn and its owner. He was a very well written and sufficiently creepy character. I constantly wondered what else he would be capable of and if anyone would ever be able to get away. I liked the end and I can imagine how the characters will move on with their lives after the honeymoon is over.

I have a BFA in painting from the University of Washington, and for over fifteen years I made award-winning Fine Art Jewelry (silver and handmade ceramics) and sold my work at local and regional Fine Art and Craft shows.
