There were too many things left open that I need answers to.

The story line had a great premise, it's just too bad the connection wasn't there for me.

First things first, starting out this book totally captured my attention, it was very hard for me to put it down. I started it late last night and finished it early this evening.
I loved Nora, she is what I adore in a heroine. She's smart, feisty, adorable, a little-ok a lot neurotic, and knows exactly what she wants and goes after it with her whole being.
I loved Leo, he's an alpha, sexy, and a great "dad" to Sebastian.
I loved the writing style, it flowed and was easy to read.
Okay, here we go.
Have you ever craved something soooo freaking bad that you just had to have it? Like that perfect pair of jeans, or those shoes that are a little too much for your pocket book? Or how about that yummy looking hamburger on display? Only to find out when you get them that those jeans don't fit perfectly after that first wash, or those shoes don't really go with anything you have, and that hamburger taste like shit!
Well here we spend 79% of this book, with Leo pushing Nora away, 5% with Leo declaring his love, AND then......the book is over. :( the last 16% of the book is previews for other books. This wouldn't bother me much if it didn't feel like I was left hanging.
I felt betrayed, I tell you. There is nothing like a fantastic book that sucks you in, makes you want it and then drops you and leaves you hanging!! I need answers, dammit!!
All in all it was still a pretty good book, but sheesh finish it leave me smiling like I just OD'ed on a dozen cupcakes.

Last year, I was so bummed when I found out we had to wait until August before Blue Lines was released and then furthering the release date to December. I was a little worried I would lose interest in the book and put off reading it when it did come out. However, over the last year, I continuously caught myself author stalking Ms. Aleo’s Facebook and Blue Lines Goodreads page to get any info I could on Blue Lines. There was just something about Piper and Erik that had me hooked and needing their story. It was definitely worth the wait!
At the end of Empty Net we learn that Piper Allen has gotten herself into a situation. After having a one night stand Ms. Allen finds that she is pregnant. However, unlike most stories of this plot line, Piper has been in love with the baby daddy for the previous two years, and knows him very well, she just wishes he sees himself the way she does, but much to her dismay he does not return the feelings.
Piper Allen, a somewhat flighty character in terms of careers is one of my favorite heroines, she is loyal, sweet, and kind. She helps others and is there for her friends and family whenever they need her, so much in fact that I felt some of them took advantage of her at times.
Erik Titov, I spent much of this book trying to figure out how to pronounce Titov—is it Tight-ov, Tit-ov, Ti-tov? I still don’t know, but that’s ok! I still loved this sweet talking, arrogant, playboy even though I found myself wanting to reach through the book and strangle him sometimes. When he finally comes through, it so worth it! This boy can grovel and Piper deserved it!
We also got glimpses of characters from other books; I am really looking forward to Phillip in his upcoming book Breakaway. I just loved him; he had me laughing my ass off in most of his scenes. I enjoyed the actions of Ellie very much, and she showed true friendship and helped Piper in ways that showed it. Now Piper’s sisters—I really wanted to B-Slap them sometimes, but in the end they came through and it was all good.
Out of all of the books in the Assassins Series, Blue Lines is my absolute favorite!
After reading all of the buzz about this book, it went straight to the top of my reading list and I'm glad I didn't wait.

Wow, I just loved these characters, both of them. Matt is not your typical hero and it was something I enjoyed wholeheartedly. Hannah, is a strong, take charge, confident heroine and I just adored her.
The steam factor is this book is a scorcher, not for the faint of heart. It's very kinky!!
The ending will leave you speechless, and maybe a little pissy. DON'T read the epilogue if you have issues with cliffhangers.
