Blog Tour - Razor's Edge by Racquel Reck

Title: Razor's Edge
Series: Afflictions #1
Author: Racquel Reck

Release Date:  June 18, 2014


Escaping the evil man of her past…

With a tattoo gun, Shay Kelly tries to color a better future for herself and her son. When her abusive ex is paroled this proves to be a difficult task. All her clients used to be his and he’s taking them back. But that’s not the only thing he wants.

Screaming his way to the top…

No one can change the visions of Morgan Desario’s past, or what he saw the night his dad died. Marijuana helps the pain his singing can’t numb. When his heavy metal band gets signed, he’s flying high. But fame and fortune do nothing to take away the humiliation he faces every time he gets stuck in a memory.

When their morals slip and their sins collide…

They share the same lifestyle, but couldn't be more different. She's anti-drug and he's all for smoking pot. A night of passion bonds them together, but their connection is strained when their pasts are unleashed. On tour, Morgan’s sins flourish. At home, Shay's morals bend. A sharp line separates what's right and wrong that both are afraid to cross.

Will they be cut walking the Razor’s Edge?

What a roller coaster ride of a debut book! Holy hell, this baby had a lot going on! I loved that this book takes place over the span of almost a year. There's no insta love, there's lots of lust and a gradual build to a relationship between Shay and Morgan. 

Shay is a tattoo artist and a single mom, she's trying to piece a life back together for herself and her little boy. For every step she takes forward to improve their lives, she's knocked two steps back. 

Morgan is the lead singer in a band on the cusp of hitting the big time. He's instantly attracted to Shay the moment he sets eyes on her. But he's got a pretty disturbing past and so does she. When those ghosts come knocking at their door, do they have a chance in hell of making their relationship work?

Like I said before, ROLLER COASTER RIDE! If you like your books jam packed with action and twists and turns than this book takes you on a rocky ride. It's a great first out for debut author Racquel Reck.  I would categorize this as a contemporary romance with some suspense sprinkled in at just the right moments. It's definitely a nail biter. This is the first book in Ms. Reck's Afflictions series, it's a full length stand alone with a HEA, but that HEA doesn't come easy. 
~ Review by Erin


Always a fan of books, Raquel began reading at the age of six. Yes, she started early. It fueled her imagination and she began writing her own stories at the age of ten. Then her writing took a back seat when she discovered drama class in high school.

Becoming an actor was what she wanted to do with her life, but she changed her mind. "I felt like I needed to do something more meaningful and planned on becoming a nurse's assistant." She went to college for her CNA, but again, not the career choice for her.

When she turned twenty she met her husband, and shortly after, their daughter came. All the while she had these voices in her head, these characters begging her to tell their stories. "I put the mute button on them until I became pregnant with my son, now I can't get them to shut up." She wrote five unpublished novels before her son turned three. She hopes that her stories will be inspirational for people going through the same problems as her characters.

Instead of going the traditional route, sending out querys and receiving rejection letters, she decided to take on the world of indie publishing. She writes contemporary and paranormal romances and hopes to one day step outside her genre and write a horror novel.
She resides just outside of Detroit, Michigan with her husband, two children, two cats and a dog. Summer days are spent at the race track and when night time falls, her secret worlds come alive.
