Audiobook Review: The Farthest Edge: Kristen Ashley

The Farthest Edge


Narrated by Lizbeth Gwynn

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.

Elsie’s Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Evangeline has given up BDSM after a former lover snaps and brutalizes her during a scene. It would take someone special to pull her back into the life. Branch is a submissive, but he never really obtains pleasure as he tries to have the demons that haunt his soul beaten out of him by a variety of mistresses. Branch is skeptical that Evangeline is what he needs, but Evangeline knows what she wants and Branch is just the guy to make her take a second chance.

This audiobook definitely took me to the furthest edge! I wasn’t sure I was going to like this story. I’m always a little apprehensive when the story deals with male submission. Author Kristen Ashley succeeds spectacularly in mixing this alpha male and his submissive needs. This book is way hot and explicit. You pretty much have to be okay with sexuality on all levels, because anything and everything short of homosexuality goes in this book.

The Farthest Edge is the second book in KA’s most daring new series. This audiobook which clocks in at 15 hours and 29 minute pushes the boundaries. One thing that hasn’t changed is Kristen ability to write a deeply touching story with characters that you truly grow to care about no matter how flawed they are and trust me they are seriously flawed!

In real life is there such a person as Branch? It’s fun to imagine, but I’d put him in the same category as the Abominable Snowman, I’ve never seen one but I can’t say one doesn’t exist.

Narrator Lizbeth Gwynn fully voiced the entire production and she does an awesome job with all of the characters in this book. She has an edge to her voice which works well with this type of story.

I was born a middle class white child in Gary, Indiana, USA. One of the last of a dying breed. I nearly killed my mother and myself making it into the world, seeing as I had the umbilical cord wrapped around my neck (already attempting to accessorize and I hadn’t taken my first breath!). Mom says they took me away, put her back in her room, she looked out the window and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). She remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.
