“Was this possibly their karmic retribution, their day in the sun?”

Julie Richman delivers one unique story that will capture your heart implicitly. This was a trope I hadn’t read before and as the words unfolded my attention was captured from the very beginning. This was a book I went into totally blind, I didn’t even read the blurb and I am glad, because the unexpected was utterly breath taking. Julie Richman never fails to deliver exceptionally heart felt stories and Love on the Edge of Time was no different, the emotion and the character connection was all on point and it is these attributes that really suck you in, taking you along for one hell of a ride.

“Which part of the loss cut the deepest, was difficult to discern, but I had the distinct feeling that it was the death of a dream that would have the most lasting and devastating impact.”

Fate and destiny, something that we want to believe in and yet somehow you always remain a sceptic. But when the evidence is before you that it does exist, do you go with the flow or fight? This was an inspiring read and really leaves your brain running a mile a minute. I am being deliberately vague because I don’t want to give anything away, but this is definitely a book that you need to go into without any preconceived notions. Let the words transport you, envelope you, and take you on one emotional roller coaster.

“…Even if I didn’t know the truth about us, did you ever think I’d let you go?”

This is a longer book than most and while I appreciated everything I read I did feel the beginning was a little slow. However, once the essence of the book became clear I was all in and couldn’t put it down, so if you do pick this book up and struggle in the beginning, like I did, give it the benefit of the doubt. You won’t be disappointed.

With flashbacks to the past I was totally engrossed as Julie Richman showed her true talent. At times I did feel the flashbacks were a little too long and took me out of the present, but sometimes it was like reading a story within a story that brought a whole new dimension to this overall.

“You’re a gift, Kylie. Like an angel who came into my life. I’d be a fool not to see that. And I’m not sure I deserve you, but I’ll be damned if I let go.”

I really cannot say anymore without giving away this plot, so I am just going to say, this is no cookie cutter book, neither is this a typical Julie Richman read, however, it was stunning. Julie Richman’s trademark signature writing is prevalent throughout as she transports you into the lives her characters have led and will leave you gagging for more. The ending I never saw coming and I admire the author for delivering the story the characters demanded. Fantastic read.


This time he didn’t text. He just called, waking her at two-fifteen a.m. “Bare-ly dressed again tonight?” Her laugh, filled with sleep was gruff. “Barely dressed every night.” “What exactly do you have on?” “A pink tank top and pink silk bikini.” “Take them off,” he ordered. “Excuse me,” there was an element of surprise in Kylie’s voice. “You heard me. Take them off. Now.” Just hearing rustling on the other end of the line, he could feel his cock stiffen and it felt damn good after all this time. Baby, I’m back, he thought. “We’re having phone sex? But, Jesse, we haven’t even kissed yet,” her protest was weak. And even she knew it. “Yes, we’re having phone sex, and when I get back to New York, we’re going to do a lot more than kiss. You’ve friend-zoned me, Toots, and I’m busting out.” Kylie was smiling on her end of the phone. Friend-zoned Jesse Fucking Winslow? Was he serious? “Nobody puts Jesse in a friend-zone,” she couldn’t help herself. “Are they off?” He totally ignored her joke. “Mmm-hmm.” “What was that?” he asked, his voice gruff and serious. “Yes, they’re off.” “Okay, spread your legs, and with your phone, take a picture of your pussy for me.” “Seriously?” She knew she was blushing in the dark. “Take the picture, Kylie.” “Okay, but if you sell this to the paparazzi, I will kill you.” There was a rustling sound, then, “Oh, my God, I can’t believe I’m doing this.” He laughed. “Okay, here it comes. I hope it’s photogenic. It would be really embarrassing to have a non-photogenic pussy.” Pulling the phone from his ear to look, Kylie could hear his moan, exciting her even more. “So photogenic, Toots, just like the rest of you. And I love the red landing strip. It’s so hot. Oh, man, I love this. Spread your legs wider and use one hand to spread your lips open for me and send me another.” Following his directions, she did as he requested.

About the Author: 

I must've been 5 or 6 when I started writing "stories". I would write them and hide them. Not wanting anyone to see my "secret" thoughts. I needed to write - even back then. Now I'm just not hiding them anymore. Is that a sign of maturity? Nah... Writer, photographer, insatiable wanderluster, edge-player, foodie, music addict, pop culture fanatic, animal lover, warrior for the rights of people and planet, and avid cusser (am a Native New Yorker, so very little offends me...and if I am offended, it must be pretty freaking bad grammar!) I am a big believer in signs and if we keep ourselves open, there are guideposts all along the way. Stay humble. Be true. Be you. Life is not a dress rehearsal...
