Review: On The Edge by Allison Van Diepen
Summary from Goodreads:
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?
This was an okay read, I enjoyed the first half of it but the ending was kind of lackluster. But mainly I liked this book and plan on reading some more of this author's books (mainly Snitch because I loved the Julia character).
The romance was the one downside for me, I would have enjoyed it more if there was less of it. However, the action scenes were really well done.
The best part of the book was the main character Maddie (and her dog Dex) who I really connected with, while the other side characters were annoying besides Julia and Eric.
I still recommend checking out this book or any of her other ones.
