Reviews of At the Brink

The Romance Review

“AT THE BRINK is the first novel in the new At The Brink series by Ms. del Mar, and it's AWESOME! Josh and Lily had some seriously insane chemistry, and their sex scenes absolutely made me drool! But beyond the hot hot hot sexy sex, their banter and adoration of each other was epic. This is one book couple that will stay with me for awhile!”

Carlene Inspired

“This emotional roller coaster of a book is part angst and part sexy, plus a lot of really incredible writing. Anna del Mar leaves you on the edge of your seat, giving just enough new information to leave you hanging on, but still keeps the anticipation high.”

The Recipe Fairy

“Wow! This was a completely absorbing book that touched all bases! The storyline was very intriguing and complex, the dialogue rich, the characters intricate and realistic and the romance was steamy and right up my alley! I love fulfilling my not so vanilla dark fantasies by reading dark erotica and this one definitely pulled some new ones out of the bag for me. However, this book isn't just about dark desires- it's much more complex than that! The characters were so emotionally palpable and realistic that I could really feel for them. The writing is just phenomenally great! This is my first book by this author that I've read and I'm definitely going to be checking out some of her other books if they're as great as this one!”

“This risqué romp is more than worth the time it took to create, edit, and publish! ... When I thought the sex scenes couldn’t burn any hotter, the flames would spike; and the best part? The plot, the characters, the action! Take your pick. I choose them all.”

What readers like you are saying about At the Brink:

“Excellent book! Ms. Del Mar is a very talented writer. Not only does she have excellent "technical" skills (i.e., knowledge of proper grammar, punctuation, spelling, vocabulary, etc.), but she also has marvelous creative skills. She has taken a storyline that I've read before but turned it into a gripping, engaging story. The characters were well-developed and relatable. All in all, I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a steamy billionaire romance!”

DL Young, Amazon

“If I could give it more than a 5-star rating I would… Ms. del Mar is certainly quite adept at writing some of the hottest and most compelling erotic scenes I've read…but At The Brink is so much more than just another erotic romance novel about a billionaire and his whims. Instead, At The Brink touches on subjects near and dear to this reader's heart, issues of honesty, trust, forgiveness, and the PTSD that now plagues so many of our returning veterans. It's a novel filled with intrigue and danger, it's masterfully written and plotted, it has memorable characters about whom you come to care deeply, and I cannot recommend it highly enough.”

Donna Repsher, Goodreads

“A scorching and intense read! Wow, wow, wow!!! This book far exceeded all my expectations. To be fair, this was my first book by Anna Del Mar and even though the description drew me in; the narrative, the characters, the love scenes and the surprises along the way were delightful and unexpected…

A story full of dark moments and deep emotions. Josh may seem like a control freak with issues at times, but as we get to know him -through his friends and family - we start to understand the sexy man behind the flashy suits. He not only knows how to lead a boardroom, but he is also a legend in the bedroom ;) And trust me, there are plenty of scorching love scenes to prove it. If you like reading about rich and successful CEOs who have a dominant streak, than this book is definitively for you! Can't wait to read more form Anna Del Mar!”

“An intense and emotional read! Josh is a successful business man with a haunted past. Lily has done her best to take care of her parent at the expense of her own happiness including, marrying a man who is willing to trade her for money. The chemistry between Josh and Lily is sizzling and the sex scorching. Loved it!”

Tammy S., Amazon

“At the Brink by Anna Del Mar was such an intriguing read. It's scorching, intense, and simply demands readers' attention. With a fairly unconventional plot, I was drawn into the dynamics of the story almost immediately. After the initial hook, the continued delve into a deeper storyline and a deeper relationship between Lily and Josh had me consistently coming back for more.

Lily has so many great qualities, and she loves her art. Josh is the soldier who is successful in life but still has his past that haunts him. Together, they just work. There are so many explosive scenes between the two of them. And despite how they initially get together, they are meant to be.

It is totally scandalous and 100% awesome. This was a definite hit from Anna Del Mar, and I would definitely be interested in reading more in the world of Josh and Lily.”

Erica, Amazon

“This book is my kind of BOOK. I couldn't believe it when I started reading and it turned out to be my favorite story line. Very hot guy and the lady of his choice burn up the pages, extremely page turning... can't wait for book three.”

C. McSWAIN, Amazon

“Another fantastic book by Anna del Mar!!!! This is the second book by this author that I have read and it did not disappoint!!!!”

Heather, Goodreads

“I really enjoyed this. I loved Josh, a former Navy SEAL with the weight of the world and the death of two friends on his shoulders. I understood why he was so emotionally stunted and just wanted to hug and cuddle him...poor guy. And his father provided some of the best comic relief.

Now Lily I found a bit more challenging to like. I wanted to bitch slap her for putting up with the crap Martin put her through. It took a long time to find out why she put up with it. The backstory for both the main characters was revealed at a tantalizingly slow pace. But it kept me glued to the book.

I loved the settings (the Cove) and the supporting characters (Mac, Amman, et al). I shed a few tears, laughed some, and occasionally wanted to yell at the characters. My husband did ask me who I was talking to on one occasion, "Why Josh of course.", she shook his head and returned to his television program.”

Pam, Goodreads

“Josh and Lily are such interesting characters – and their development takes place throughout the whole book. It is only on the last pages that their picture becomes complete for the readers. What a rare gift – to tell a story like this.”

Jeri's Book Attic, Goodreads

“What a gripping powerful story! It starts out very scandalous and some parts outrageous but turns into a heart wrenching romance with a back story that explains it all…

Great emotional read loved it couldn't put it down even read some at work...but don't tell. First book from this author and I will check our more from her.”

Maria11, Goodreads

“At The Brink by Anna del Mar is a really hot, emotional book that I could not put down. This is the first book I have read of Anna del Mar and now I am dying to try to get more!... I would ask that you give this book a chance. It has more to it then what can be put down in words. I think you will enjoy the emotional roller coaster ride you get here.”
