The ones who are overly forceful. Severely angry. Too rough. Major assholes with a sensitive side.
And no matter how sensitive that side is, I can’t look past the other parts.
And every time Dane would do something sweet or say something funny, I would remember the times he was a dick.
And his reasoning for being a dick (because, as you know, all our bad alpha boys have some major daddy or momma issues): because he believed some shit his dad told him and couldn’t have the girl he wanted.
Is that justified reasoning to ruin a girl’s adolescence? I mean maybe in middle school I can see a guy picking on a girl that he likes and it being sort of okay, but in high school and even beyond that? FUCK NO. It’s ridiculous. And it was cruel. Ugh, it made me cringe.
So that is why I didn’t completely fall in love with this book.
I did, however, fall in love with some of the characters, mostly Jade and Reid. And I absolutely think they need their own book.
I loved the friendships between everyone. I liked the humor and some parts made me tear up. Seriously, the last few chapters were really emotional!
And yes, if I forget about Dane being a douche, it was hot. Like, holy shit, dirty talk to the max.
And then there is the cowboy aspect. I can only assume that The Line Between takes place in Texas. And considering that I am from right next door in Louisiana, I’ve seen my fair share of cowboys. And then I’ve seen cowboy type people. FYI: just because he wears a cowboy hat, cowboy boots and drives a truck, he ain’t a cowboy.
Anyways, I read this fairly quickly. It was interesting and pulled me under pretty fast. I just am not attracted to Dane as everyone else must be. ...more
Y’all, it has been a while since a book has made me giggle and grin and cry as much as this one did. It’s so simple, yet so complicated that I couldn’t help but get caught up in the madness.
My Kindle arc is riddled with highlight marks of all the beautiful little quotes I wanted to look back on. So many things that captured my heart and played with my emotions. Little pieces of perfection that spoke to me on a deeper level.
Some of my favorite things:
Riley. Riley with Colby. The Great Tequila Shortage. Sara Smile. (I had to download that song to fully understand how much it meant to Sarah). Uncle Russ. Would you ever. Sarah’s drawings. Spencer’s tattoos. The dunes.
Short and sweet. I devoured this book in a few days. Once I started, it was hard to get away from it.
Play of Light is a book worth checking out if you want to have your heart strings tugged. A beautiful book worthy of ending 2014 with. (It’s a book I need a physical copy of so I can give it a hug)!...more
All you New Adult haters, this is the type of book that gives NA a bad rep.
I didn’t start this book intending to dislike it so much. I don’t do that wAll you New Adult haters, this is the type of book that gives NA a bad rep.
I didn’t start this book intending to dislike it so much. I don’t do that with any books, it just happens sometimes. I was actually really excited to read it because I had heard so many good things about this series. Rowdy is the first Jay Crownover book I’ve ever read, which means it’s also the first I’ve read in the Marked Men series.
I can’t imagine that the other 4 books were any different.
Different guy. Different girl. Differentish circumstances. Differentish sexy times. Different drama. Different problems. Differentish pasts. Yet, it reads all the same.
Did I hit the nail on the head there for Rule, Jet, Nash, and Rome’s books? (And while I’m thinking about it, what in the actual fuck is up with the names in these books!?).
This book was predictable and cliché and just really boring most of the time.
Let me start with our heroine. Brash. Give no fucks attitude. Can hold her own. Piercings. Pinup girl. Tattoos. Ex-stripper, which is a fact that she is hella proud of.
So basically, Salem is still that teenager that you see in Hot-Topic begging their mom to buy them the new emo-punk-screamo album (aka Me is high school), but she is also the girl who does things just to spite her parents and shit like that. It’s like she did things just to see the reaction from other people. She did things just so people would she how strong she was and that she indeed was a boss ass bitch.
I do have to say, that Salem’s parents are assholes. Her dad can go fuck himself. I see the reasoning as to why she left. However, if she cared as much as she said she did about her sister and Rowdy, she would not have left. Simple as that.
Now, the hero. Brash. Whiny. Great artist. Tattoos. Piercings. Dramatic.
And that about sums Rowdy up. He was an idiot. He followed a girl he wasn’t dating, to a college he didn’t wanna go to, to play a sport he did not really like, just because he thought that maybe they were meant to be together.
Nope. Nope. Nope.
And Poppy's dumbass. Ugh. I hate what happened to her, but it could have been avoided.
Okay, and I was going to make a point about this next thing by typing this whole paragraph without punctuation, but once I did it, it looked weird and it bothered me too much and I couldn’t leave it like that. So, with that being said, there is a serious lack of commas in this book. GOOD LORD. It irritated me so much that I started skimming long paragraphs.
I wish I hadn’t found this book so laughable and ridiculous, cause I think I would’ve enjoyed the series otherwise.
The 2 stars are for Jimbo and Asa. And the relationship this little group had....more
I don’t generally read adult fiction. But I’m open to reading just about anything.
However, this wasn’t the book for me. I could never really get intoI don’t generally read adult fiction. But I’m open to reading just about anything.
However, this wasn’t the book for me. I could never really get into it. I could never connect with any of the characters.
Maybe it’s just me, but the thought of inviting a random stranger to your house and showing them pictures of your children is super unsafe!
I’ve always been told that in situations like these; always start in a public setting. Always take precautions.
Maybe that’s just my generation though. I realize that Jacqueline is older and maybe she feels safer doing things like that, but I cringed every time she did.
I found no interest in Marc. He actually freaked me out in the beginning. He was really into Jackie from the start and they hadn’t even met yet. Like overly obsessed, but Jackie took that as being romantic and open.
There was so much information that added nothing to the story. If you took all that out, I’m sure the book would be significantly shorter.
Other than that, it was a light, easy read. I just wish I had connected to it more. ...more
