Brotherhood and beer meets single mom and apple pie.
I am a riding contradiction.
A scholar, a cynic, a brother, and a biker.
My name is Trunk.
I’m smart enough to recognize the chip on my shoulder, and cautious enough to keep it right where it is.
I am a misguided romantic.
A mom, a daughter, an agent, and a survivor
My name is Jaimie.
I’m strong enough to look after my family alone, and too stubborn to accept I don’t have to.
We make an odd couple—our differences obvious—but when hatred and danger threatens to destroy everything of value in our lives, we only get stronger.
Edge of Reason is a fantastic start to the Arrow’s Edge MC series.
As always, Freya Barker doesn’t disappoint.
The storyline revolves around Jaime, a feisty thirty-eight-year-old who has recently moved to Durango with her baby, River, after taking a job to work for Tahlula Rae, a famous author.
Trunk is a member of Arrow’s Edge MC and Tahlula’s brother. He’s a psychologist who helps out troubled adolescent boys the club takes in and mentors, as well as a confidant-slash-voice of reason to Ouray, the MC prez (or chief as they call him) or an occasional member.
Jaime is white. Trunk is black. They’re instantly attracted to one another. Hot damn, Trunk is one tall, muscular, fine-looking man who is uber-alpha and knows his way around a woman’s body … sigh. Together, they’re perfect.
As much as the people they surround themselves with are color blind, the two aren’t naïve as to how some still live in a bigoted, racist world. Unfortunately, that world comes crashing into Durango, aiming its hateful destruction to the places and people it chooses to hurt the most.
There are plenty of familiar faces from Freya’s Rock Point series as the FBI gets involved after things go from bad to worse. The best parts are the side stories within this book, just like all of Freya’s other books; they only enhance the reader’s imagination of the world that she’s created—ordinary folks who do extraordinary things.
Once again, author Freya Barker has managed to knock me on my butt with a story that’s heartfelt, disconcerting but necessary, yet full of promise and love … because in the end, love always wins. I highly recommend Edge of Reason ~ five stars for me.

Freya Barker loves writing about ordinary people with extraordinary stories.
Driven to make her books about ‘real’ people; with characters who are perhaps less than perfect, but just as deserving of romance, thrills and chills, and their own slice of happy.
A recipient of the RomCon “Reader’s Choice” Award for best first book, “Slim To None”, and Finalist for the Kindle Book Award with “From Dust”, Freya has not slowed down.
She continues to add to her rapidly growing collection of published novels as she spins story after story with an endless supply of bruised and dented characters, vying for attention!
