The Playlist for To the Edge by Anna del Mar + Giveaway

The Playlist for To the Edge


If you’ve ever followed my posts before, you know that my playlists are not so much about what music I’m listening to or when. They’re about the characters, which songs make me think of them in the story, which songs somehow reflect their emotions as they move through the story.

The playlist that I’ve put together to celebrate the release of To the Edge follows on that tradition. To the Edge, just out from Carina Press, is the second chance love story of Noah Blake and Clara Luz, the sexiest, naughtiest, kinkiest novel I’ve written yet. The premise goes something like this: In order to learn about kink, Clara had to learn the ropes, but she never expected to be so compromised she’d need rescue by none other than Noah Blake, the first man she ever loved, the ex-SEAL who almost destroyed her, the wounded warrior determined to reclaim her heart and fight for redemption to the very edge of sexual obsession.

These songs take you through the emotional journey of Clara and Noah. Below I also share with you some of my favorite lines from some fabulous song writers.




“Girl on fire” by Alicia keys

She’s just a girl, and she’s on fire
Hotter than a fantasy, longer like a highway
She’s living in a world, and it’s on fire
Feeling the catastrophe, but she knows she can fly away
Oh, she got both feet on the ground
And she’s burning it down
Oh, she got her head in the clouds
And she’s not backing down

Written by Alicia Keys, Jeff Bhasker, Salaam Remi, William H Squier.


“Radioactive” by Imagine demons

I’m waking up to ash and dust,
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust,
I’m breathing in, the chemicals.
I’m breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus.
This is it, the apocalypse, whoa.

Written by Alexander Junior Grant, Daniel Coulter Reynolds, Daniel Wayne Sermon, Benjamin Arthur Mckee, Joshua Francis Mosser.


“A Thousand Years” by Christin Perri

I have died everyday, waiting for you
Darling, don’t be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more.

Written by Dwayne Carter, Theron Thomas, Timothy Thomas, Lukasz Gottwald, Henry Russell Walter, Toni Tennille.


“Locked Away” by Adam Levine

If I got locked away
And we lost it all today
Tell me honestly, would you still love me the same?
If I showed you my flaws
If I couldn’t be strong
Tell me honestly, would you still love me the same?

Written by Dwayne Carter, Theron Thomas, Timothy Thomas, Lukasz Gottwald, Henry Russell Walter, Toni Tennille.


“If I Could Turn Back Time” by Cher

If I could turn back time
If I could find a way
I’d take back those words that’d hurt you
And you’d stay
If I could reach the stars
I’d give ’em all to you
Then you’d love me, love me, like you used to do
If I could turn back time

Written by Diane Warren.


“Talking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran

So baby now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Oh darling, place your head on my beating heart
I’m thinking out loud
That maybe we found love right where we are.

Oh maybe we found love right where we are
And we found love right where we are.

Written by Amy Wadge / Ed Sheeran.



About To The Edge

To learn about kink, she had to learn the ropes. Yet she never expected to be so compromised she’d need rescuing. And by him. The first man she’d ever loved. The former navy SEAL who’d broken her heart.

Clara’s gone wild.

Naked. Cuffed. Caged. Is this the sweet senator’s daughter I left behind?

I didn’t know it was her when I rushed into that room filled with flames, but I’ll never let her go again.

She’s proposed a unique way to thank me. It could bring us both to the edge of ecstasy—or to the point of no return.

Clara wants to submit. To me. Totally. Damn any limits. The very thought of it has brought me back from the dead.

But a stranger is watching from the shadows. He’s made us his fantasy. And he plays rougher than I do. Where he’s taking us now is somewhere so dark, and so dangerous, that this time it could be inescapable.
