Review: Over the Edge by Suzanne Carroll

Over the Edge by Suzanne Carroll

In six weeks Zoe Harper will marry Dan Costi in an over-the-top Sydney society wedding, complete with fire-eaters and belly dancers. But when she receives an unexpected gift from her future mother-in-law, Zoe realises she’s making a huge mistake. In a blazing sidewalk argument, she breaks up with her fiance, and his mother--who has joined the fight via conference call.

Following the advice of friends and co-workers, along with some inspiration from late-night-television self-help guru Dr. Pam, Zoe sets out to find the life she thinks she should be living. Always a planner, she makes a list of goals: travel, career, tattoos, and no relationships. It’s all carefully laid out, until she meets Angus Creed.

In six weeks Angus is supposed to lead the opening waltz at a charity ball in New York City. Only problem is, the handsome billionaire construction magnate with the tabloid past can’t dance. Not one step.

Tainted by gossip and with a well-publicised failed engagement behind him, Angus has become a master at keeping an emotional distance. Until he meets Zoe.

What starts as dancing lessons, slowly becomes something more. Angus begins to let down his guard and open his heart, even when his past makes an unexpected and unwelcome return. As Zoe discovers the real man behind the headlines, she questions where her new choices are taking her. Her goals look good on paper, but are they what she really wants? And by the time she realises where her heart lies, will it be too late?

My Thoughts:
Absolutely loved this! It was funny and sweet. Zoe breaks off her engagement and decides she needs to find herself. She meets a lovely man who turns out to be her boss. Both have a bad relationship behind them. She's not looking to get into another relationship now anyway. She gives him dancing lessons and they become friends. This is from Zoe's point of view and she is very witty. She also tends to get herself into some crazy predicaments. I was laughing out loud at times. This was a fun romance read.
(I actually received this book by accident, when I was supposed to get a different one. So glad I had the chance to read it!)
