On The Edge by Allison Van Diepen Review

From Allison van Diepen, author of Snitch and Street Pharm, comes a sexy, dangerous
novel—perfect for fans of Simone Elkeles and Paul Griffin—about a teen who witnesses a murder and gets caught up in the seedy world of Miami's gangs.
Maddie Diaz never should have taken that shortcut through the park. If she hadn't, she wouldn't have seen two members of the Reyes gang attacking a homeless man. Now, as the only witness, she knows there's a target on her back.
But when the Reyes jump her on the street, Maddie is protected by a second gang and their secretive leader, Lobo, who is determined to take down the Reyes himself. Lobo is mysterious and passionate, and Maddie begins to fall for him. But when they live this close to the edge, can their love survive?
My Thoughts:
4.5/5 Stars

On The Edge by Allison Van Diepen is a fast paced, heart racing romance that will suck you in from page one!
It's about a girl who witnesses a homeless man being murdered by the town's most notorious gang. She know if she gives them away they will be after her, but she does so anyway. From that moment on crime surrounds her. She is safe no where... or that is what she believes.
What she doesn't know is she has a protector, who may be closer than she thinks.
When she is rescued one night and dropped off at the hospital by a masked Lobo her world is turned upside down. She finds herself day dreaming about her mysterious hero and craving another visit. When he finally reveals himself he also exposes her to his world of danger. Together they build a romance like no other. It's secretive, romantic, and dangerous.
The storyline was intriguing and the suspense had me on the edge of my seat. There were so many twists and turns that I felt as though I was consumed by the story. I couldn't put it down and when it ended... I wanted more!
Lobo was intense, caring, & HOT! He is a book boyfriend that every girl needs in her life.
I highly recommend this book to all ages! Yeah it is YA, but the elegance of the writing and story matter is very much adult like.
