A Bed of Knives - contemporary romance with an edge.

Friendship can get complicated when you start to fancy the guys you hang out with. When Eddie suggests a night out to celebrate the end of their final exams, four friends look forward to the evening with different expectations.

Fast forward 5 years. Gina and Rose rescue Spider from living rough in Oxford. Is this enough to bring all four of them together again and will their friendship survive the revelations of the following days?

***Not erotica, but does contains strong language and explicit sex***

-- My Thoughts --

     There are mistakes that we will regret for the rest of our lives, but everyone deserves a second chance, or do they? One  moment might mark your past, present, and future. A Bed Of Knives is an exotic, romantic work of fiction that you will like, a lot!
     Gina has always loved Spider, but she can't have him, actually he wouldn't have HER.

     Now, five years later, Gina is an antique seller. Rose, a fashion designer. Ellie, a fabulous sports superstar. And Spider is a hard-working chef. Things have changed, Ellie and Rose's relationship had broken apart. Gina has suffered great loses and Spider is fighting to make enough money. None of them is happy.
     But when Gina and Rose find Spider in a dirty alley, drunk and unconscious, they take him to Gina's home.Now as Gina and Spider's lives collide, Gina should finally tell him the secret that has been her burden for far too long. And Spider should try to win her back. Ellie never forget Rose, but he has done too much harm, does he have another chance?
     How will Spider accept what Gina will tell him? Will he be able to win Gina back after what he had done? Will Rose be able to forgive Ellie? Will their lives ever go back to normal? Find out the answers in the wonderful novel, full of romance, A Bed Of Knives.
     Honestly, I liked this book. The pace is a bit slow, and the book is told in chapters. Some of the chapter are in present "Now" and some are in the past "Five Years Ago", I got so confused some times, that I had to go back and reread a few pages, it was frustrating! But I lived through...
     The storyline is your typical happy-ending romance, with some unexpected twists added here and there. It is an enjoyable ride that will teach you many lessons about true love and surviving hard times. I enjoyed it, but didn't love it! You idea might be different, but if you want a romantic, quick read, then this is the one!

  3. Maybe not a book I'd buy brand new, since it's usually not the kind of stories I go for... but it still seems interesting. I'll see if I can get it second-hand.
