After reading Running from Forever, I fell hard and fast for Merrick Drake. He had just the right amount of bad boy and sweetheart to suck me in. So when I heard there was a book coming just for him, I was ready and waiting.
“I loved her. I loved a girl I couldn’t have. I loved a girl I barely knew. I loved a girl who didn’t love me.”
In Permanent Lines Merrick finds his HEA in the form of Amelia Driscoll. And Amelia is GREAT! There was not a moment in this story that I didn’t feel that she had his best interest in mind. Merrick and Amelia have that instant attraction and instant love that some people don’t believe in. But Ashley’s description of their first encounter, night together, and Merrick’s feelings after, will make you a believer. My only complaint with it was that I felt it drug out a little too long. I felt that the meat of the story and the action didn’t start till almost 50% in. But I think I know why it was that way. We needed to understand his love for her before believing he would do the things he does for her. And I did believe it
“It’s like she took my normal self with her and left this crazy bastard in its place.”
Also, I enjoyed every one of the secondary characters. We had Kayla and Miles from Running from Forever, plus Micah(Merrick’s best friend) and Maddy(Kayla’s sister). Every character in this story was enjoyable and well written, so that you understood their importance. I am secretly hoping that Micah could get his own story. Like Merrick, he also is that perfect mix of bad and good 😉
“You do realize how stupid you are for loving me, right?”
“Baby, I would never argue the fact. I’ve been a stupid fuck my whole life; no need to change that now.”
Ashley Wilcox is one of the few authors who I can honestly say I have read every book she has written and I plan to try my hardest to keep that going. I enjoy her writing style and the way she explains her characters emotions. Because, for me, the emotions are the most important aspect of the book. If I can’t feel it and believe it, I don’t enjoy it. Permanent Lines is a quick, easy, and enjoyable read. Buy it! Read it! Enjoy it!
