1 'I Just Can't' Stars

I had a really hard time reading this book and honestly most of it I skimmed over. The main characters were just both really fucking annoying and I actually found myself worrying more about the what was happening with secondary characters then with them.

The first 40% or so went like this:
Molly kisses Jason then tries to leave
Jason: Why are you leaving, why are you mad?
Molly: You know why.
Jason: I don't, Molly.
Molly: I can't believe you right now!
Jason: I'm so confused

I really had an issue with this book and his name was Jason. I didn't care for him in the last book, hated how he had a parade of women in and out of his bedroom even knowing that Molly was around and would see, knowing her crush. It was plain cruel to me.

Then we learn in this one that Jason has loved Molly since she was 17, yet slept with woman after woman, including Molly's friend and roommate, then married her. How on earth are we supposed to get behind Jason and Molly as a couple knowing th

***ARC from NetGalley received in exchange for honest review.

For me this one was a very tough read. Not because of subject matter but the complete and utter lack of communication between the H and h. It went something like this:

h: You know why I'm mad.
H: No, I don't.
h: I can't believe you don't. That's it, we're done. (h storms off)
H: (stands there trying to figure out what the heck just happened and not having a clue)

The story was a variation of that lack of communication for chapter after chap
Spoilers ahead

😂😂😂😂 so H knows h has a crush on him, he's loved her for years BUT he boinked women A-Z including her friend. But he's loved her for years?! I call bs total and complete bs, psa........for a story with an H that has loved for years but knows to keep it in his pants see my love Gunner in Katie Wilde's hellfire riders series 😍😂

This is a story about heartbreak and loss, love and redemption. It's a friends to lover story too, about Molly who's loved her brother's friend Jason for years, watching as he teetered on the brink of destruction after her mother died, which precipitated his decision to enter the military and how he returned a battered and bruised man. She's seen him go through women and alcohol and now, now he finally is seeing her in a new light. He wants to pursue a relationship with her, and will do anything ...more

How long can a woman be expected to wait on a man to realize she's his future?

Being stuck in the friend zone was fine for Molly Cain and Jason McAdams for years, but when he returned from Afghanistan, something changed. Molly can't stand to see the man she's been in love with her whole life lose himself in women and bad choices, and she finally decides it's time to let go of the dream of the two of them sharing a happily ever after. Jason hates the distance that's grown between him and Molly, b

C- on AAR, so 2.5 stars Line of Fire has all kinds of elements that should make it a promising read - a tortured hero and heroine who also have some history between them, a second-chance-at-love plotline (love those!) and plenty of angst. Unfortunately, things never entirely came together and until about the last quarter of the book, I spent much of my reading time muttering under my breath about how I wished these twits would just grow up already.

This is the second book in the Greenway Range by Dimon and I absolutely love it!

In the first book we meet Molly and Jason. They are always at each other throats by arguing. This book picks up where the first book ends with them.

Jason who is now out of the marines is a partner in the Range with his brother and friend Sawyer, who is Molly's bother. Although Jason has made serious mistakes where Molly is concerned he is now trying to change his ways. He is just hoping it's not to late to be the m

I actually didn't remember reading this book until I came across it on the page- and didn't remember anything about it until the blurb.

Way too much "classic misunderstanding and lack of communication" - which surprised me because those aren't usual HKD pitfalls. (I guess she's such an excellent writer that I expect more from her?)

This book was one where I didn't care about rooting for the relationship, or the characters really.

My Review:
Hands down, this is my favorite book that I've read from HelenKay Dimon. Every single little thing in this book worked for me.

This book is a HUGE character driven story. Molly and Jason have a long history...of dancing around one another and not doing anything about their mutual attraction. When it began, she was only 17...too young for him at 23 and then life and circumstances kept them apart until there was simply too much between them...much of it really antagonistic. These are two

After saying goodbye to his military career, and his not so happy marriage, Jason McAdams is ready for a life reboot. He moves home and decides to partner with his best friends in a new business adventure. He is trying his best to put his life back on track, but lingering old habits keep getting in the way, he struggles to finally put a end to them, meaning he must finally swear off his heavy drinking and bed hopping ways and try to find a way to start walking the straight and narrow.

Heartbroken and deeply wounded by Jason McAdams's unforgivable ways over the years as he went through woman after woman, Molly Cain made herself a decision to close herself off from him, putting paid to years of jagged history and friendship. Ironically, it's only then that Jason feels that loss sharply and decides that he wants a do-over. He made a sudden, complete turnaround after years of self-destructive behaviour, and understandably, Molly is wary and on the edge counting down the days to s ...more

I really enjoyed the first book in the Greenway Range series and I was excited to get the chance to read the second one. I knew that Molly and Jason were going to be entertaining and combustible and I was right. I loved the way that the roles were reversed a bit as far as the relationship between Molly and Jason goes. There is a lot of history there and a lot of secrets between them. Jason finally wants to give things with Molly a shot and all she’s willing to give him is sex, which was definite ...more

This one tossed me around a bit. Molly has loved Jason forever but Jason couldn't give in to his feelings and take her so he ignored her most of the time. He was also harboring a secret that could devastate her. Getting out of the service after being injured in a attack in a place it never should've happened. He's got tons of guilt over that but also over things that happened with Molly. Tons and tons and it's piled up and made it seem impossible to him to ever have her as more than a friend. He ...more

I received a copy of this book for my honest review from NetGalley.

UGH I really wanted to give HelenKay Dimon more stars than 3. I really loved her previous books but this one fell somewhat short for me. The characters who well while thought out came off really naive and stubborn to me. The lack of conversation between the characters was to much for me to handle. I kept reading hoping they would turn the flaws into something to be transformed but no. They don't communicate the whole way through
Julie   (*Happily Ever Chapter*)
Molly has been in love with her brother's best friend, Jason since she was a young girl, but she has finally gotten to the point that she wants to put distance between them because she can't handle watching his man-whoring ways. It also doesn't help that he is recently divorced from someone who was supposed to be her best friend. The harder she pushes him away, the closer he tries to be with her. Jason just has to make her see that he's changed, and to learn to let her close.

Review copy received via NetGalley.

I'm a sucker for a best friend's younger sister trope (and am reading another right now!). I saw a couple reviews that noted the irritating banter between Molly and Jason. (She thinks he should know what he did wrong, and he has no clue.) It continues a little too long. However, I didn't feel like it took away that much from the overall story. Jason is the tortured military hero. Out of the service and facing more ghosts than he cares to acknowledge, Jason is s

This ARC was graciously provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I like the story line a lot. The best friend and little sister fall in love type of book are always enjoyable. I liked how the characters are all close to each other in the group that they belong to and are there for each other. My problem in the book was the lack of communication. It drove me crazy. The banter between Molly and Jason pretty much spanned the whole book and had me wondering why they even like

Well written and the plot did keep me reading, but Jason and Molly were a bit too tortured for my liking and couldn't beat Sawyer and Hailey in the romance department. I'll be honest and admit that a large part of that was due to Jason's manwhore behaviour. I have a problem with that even when an explanation is given and there's no indication the character would stray again (as was the case here). Molly didn't help the situation though as she annoyed me several times throughout the story. In spi ...more

Line of fire is a brother best friend love story. For me was a little bit hard reading because of the whey Jason and Molly communicated. In the beginning they didn't finish their thoughts or sentence. It was a lot of their reflections and thoughts and not a lot of happening.

Molly and her thoughts were entertaining, "damn retired marines and their impressive muscles. He lifted an eyebrow. “Are you going to invite me in?” When Molly wants something, the woman doesn't care who's in the room, "she pushed up on her elbow and stared down at him. “So I basically announced in front of him that I wanted to have sex with you.” It's always a pleasure to have a man highlight the assets he loves on you:
“You.” He smiled. “When you turned around? That a** is amazing.”

3.5 / 5 stars

HelenKay Dimon's writing style is one that can be a bit hit or miss for me. I enjoy her suspense, her military feels, but sometimes the storyline drags or the romance isn't 100% there for me. LINE OF FIRE is in a series of hers I've not read yet, but I likely will look into when my reading list calms a bit simply because even when looking for key parts in my reading (engaging prologue, lovely epilogue), HKD usually hits t

In one word LINE OF FIRE is SWEET. Helen Kay Dimon did such a beautiful job in showing us one man`s fears and a woman`s chance at finding the happiness she deserves. The love that she has always had is the thing that motivates Jason in every way to get his happiness. Everybody in this book from Sawyer, Hailey to even Ben make this book come to life. We have Marcus, Jason`s brother as well making this book more than just about Jason and Molly. Helen Kay Dim

I have a fairly healthy tolerance for drama, y'all. I review books as a job, clearly I love stories and drama. What I don't love is stories out of balance. And this one was 100% out of balance.

I have a feeling Dimon views this series as one long book and each novel is chapters. I haven't read Book One and was TOTALLY LOST y'all for like the first fifty pages. There was absolutely, in my mind, NO justification for Molly to be behaving the way she was. Like, fo

This book is filled with some hot sex, when it's happening, and lots of hunky damaged military men (really, how can they not be). There seems to be as much strife as there is love in this one. The story is well-written and
I found the secondary characters just as intriguing as the main characters.

There several glimpses of a M/M relationship, but nothing hot and heavy. It didn't bother this reader, but if that sort of thing bothers you, you may want to pass on this one.

She is also in a world of hurt with Jason's shenanigans as he seeks some balance between the raging attraction he has for Molly and his deep seated belief t

I wanted so much more from this book. I will that both the hero, Jason, and the heroine, Molly, were beyond frustrating. They talked to each other in half sentences and covered the same ground repeatedly. I know that this is to demonstrate their inability to communicate, but as the reader it made me want to pull my hair out.
