Praise for this book
Excerpt from Review By Faridah Nassozi After almost losing Brooke, all Luce wanted to do was nurse her lover back to full health and plot her revenge against Frank. However, that would not be the case. First, a whole new set of family drama erupts when a woman shows up claiming to be Luce's sister, but Luce does not even get enough time to process it before Petrov strikes. Petrov is out for revenge and what better way to ensure the safe return of his family than by kidnapping the Oyabun herself. With Luce missing, a frantic Brooke steps up to fill the leadership void and guide the family in the search for Luce and seeking justice against all who had wronged them. In Razor's Edge: American Yakuza III, Isabella delivers yet another amazing read and a worthy addition to the outstanding American Yakuza series. Isabella has a way of starting her novels with gripping scenes that right away draw you into her world with anticipation, suspense and thrills that last all the way to the end. Whether it is the sweet, sensual passion between lovers or the dark violence between enemies, every scene is captured in a way that makes the story vividly come alive and seduce your mind into this fictitious world of crime, passion, and revenge. Razor's Edge is another fitting addition to the revolving game of vengeance between the Yakuza and the Russian mob. I read the book in one go, and couldn't put it down until I knew how it all played out; Razor's Edge is that captivating. Excerpt of review by Viga Boland This lady knows how to plot a riveting story, full of action, nasty characters, crime and violence. But at the same time, she knows how to make her key players, in this case, Luce and her lover, Brooke, touch our hearts with their love and sensitivity so that good prevails in the midst of all the mayhem. Razor's Edge will intrigue readers who aren't used to seeing women wear the pants in both personal relationships and in corporate affairs. These are the women with roles and personalities society associates with men. These women are competent, intelligent and tough. They don't buckle or fall apart when the going gets rough. Instead the rougher it gets, the tougher they get. What will be most pleasing to female readers is seeing that the men's usual tools of violence against women are no match for the intelligence of Luce and Brooke! Excerpt of review by Sefina Hawke Move over Goodfellas, The Godfather, Once Upon a Time in America, Casino, and The Departed, and make room for Luce Potter and Brooke Erickson in Razor's Edge (American Yakuza III) by Isabella. Razor's Edge is a fast paced romance/intrigue read that pulled me in right from page one. I found that reading Razor's Edge without reading the first or second books in the series left me unsure about some plot points and characters, but the more I read the more I learned about the plot and the characters and everything came together for me like the pieces in a puzzle. Overall, I greatly enjoyed reading Razor's Edge. Luce Potter and Brooke Erickson quickly became my favorite characters because of how they both handled themselves and did not need to rely on a rescue from a knight in shining armor. Excerpt from review by Susan Sewell Razor's Edge (American Yakuza III) by Isabella is an enthralling suspense novel. It is a breathtaking story regarding mob rivalry and possibly the beginning of a mob war. The fierce rivalry between the two mobs grows in its magnitude. The torture scenes described are intense, and the executioners' cold and calculating performances gave me the shivers. The lead characters are strong, but I especially admired Brooke's fortitude, though I must say that my favorite character was the dominatrix. This book is perfect for those who are looking for an empowering LGBT novel.
