~~ 4.5 Stars ~~
I want to start by saying Thank You to Alicia Kobishop for asking me to read and review her Debut Novel The Fine Line. I will say for being a debut novel I was thoroughly impressed. I really liked this story. I was sucked in from the beginning and it kept hold of me until the very last page. She had many different elements in this story…which brought out many different emotions. Now normally that would be a five star read for me, but something about Liv drove me crazy for about 60% of the book and I just couldn’t give it the full five stars. Plus there were a couple times that time jumped without a smooth transition, it was slightly confusing at times. But neither of those reasons deterred me from really enjoying this book. I also loved that the theme of this story was about car racing. I haven’t read many books with that type of story. It reminded me of the movie The Fast and Furious, which I love :). I really enjoyed this authors writing style…it flowed well except in a few spots and the pacing was good.
As for the characters in this story, I’ll start with Logan because stole my heart from the very beginning. I absolutely loved his character!!!! He was a strong person but he had trouble trusting people due to something from his childhood. He didn’t do relationships, at least not until he met Liv. She changed his mind and opened his heart. I give Logan a lot of credit because let me tell you…the crap Liv puts him through, I would’ve kicked her to the curb a long time ago. Logan was truly a patient man and he knew what he wanted and wasn’t willing to give it up. There was one situation, that happened with Logan that I thought was left unfinished….I wish we would’ve gotten a definitive answer on it. I can’t say more bc it gives too much away. As for Liv…..I liked her character but boy did she start to drive me bonkers. I had many eye rolling moments when it came to her and her decisions. I liked that she was strong willed but that also led her to be very stubborn. I really wish that she would’ve dropped her walls a little sooner then 60% because I would’ve like to see more of her relationship with Logan. I will say it was nice that what drama was brought to light by other people was short lived. I will also say that as I read this book I had to keep reminding myself that Liv was still in high school and Logan was only 20 yrs old. There were times that I forgot they were younger characters. Not that that is a bad thing.
There were quite a few secondary characters that added to this book but none that really stuck out.
I would recommend this book to everyone. If you’re looking for a pretty quick read that is action packed and has a hot race car driver for the hero, then this is the book for you.
