And this spy book reeks of them. I don’t remember ever disliking a spy novel, but there’s a first time for everything it seems.
There is just so much hate in this book. Hate for the main character. From her teachers, her colleagues, her destined love-intere ...more
It’s also one that Meghan Rogers makes look easy in her debut, CROSSING THE LINE. And that is a true measure of her talent.

Jocelyn is tough and smart and resourceful, and her changing relationships with the distrustful team members who don't want to like or trust her are my favorite parts of the book. I especially love that within all ...more
(I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.)
This book is action packed. It has a great protagonist and It's is an overall very entertaining read.

This spy thriller is impossible to put down, and has some great chemistry between certain characters; I can't wait for book two!

Somehow, she manages to escape the North Korean agency controlling her and finds herself working for the good guys - in Wilmington, Delaware. (I wor ...more
2017 challenge: an espionage thriller
An ARC was provided by the publisher in exchange for review consideration.
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Spy books are my jam, y'all. After all, I got my YA start with Gallagher Girls. In addition, Crossing the Line was one of my Sixteen 2016 Reads, so obviously I had high expectations going into it.
The start of the book was a bit slow. There were several training scenes and classroom scenes that I thought were unnecessary. Also, the drama with Agent Harper led nowhere. That was one pl ...more
enjoyable to read because it had a little bit of everything. Meghan wrote this book with just the right ratio of Action, Adventure and she even threw in some mystery into the mix while writing it. She did this all while keeping the readers on their toes throughout
the whole book. Meghan made this book so while reading this book the readers would never want to put the book down and continue reading it all day. This book is great for people who enjoy reading action packed books with ...more
Jocelyn: decided to skip afternoon workout to get some research done
Me: oh my god you’re gonna lose your strength if you miss training again
Also me: literally eating a donut the size of my face
Anyways. This spy book is different than the other spy books I’ve read in the past and I really liked the change. It ...more
