This is the first book of Chloe Walsh's that I've read, and I must say I'm pretty damn impressed! This book... the feels... all the damn feels... amazing! I've read other books with similar issues and once the person is found and saved they just go back to living normal lives like nothing happened. This book is true to the victims in this situation, these things happen. They are real... and how Kenzie acted and felt... I could feel everything she felt while reading these words. Truly amazing.

Ugh that cliffy though!!!!!
A little birdie told me...
What the hell did I just read? How does this book rate so highly with so many people? Anger fills my soul. Honestly, everything about this book made me ragingly pissed.

It was probably the most awfully depressing book I've ever read. Nothing good happens. None of the characters are redeemable. The ending sucked, topped off with a presumed cliffhanger (ugh).

Seriously, nothing good happens in this book. How many times will these characters have to be metaphorically kicked in the teeth?
Wow! That was one intense and tearful read! Chloe Walsh really sucks you into this highly explosive novel. I was intrigued from page one and it didn't let up from there. Totally awesome read!!

Just a heads-up, there is a cliffhanger...

Full review to be written soon...

Ok, as many best friends=lovers I have read, which I heart... I thought I crossed one last week that was a bit different than the norm which it was but holy smokes... I never would have predicted this situation. I can't even explain how shocked I was.

Exactly what I wish for, I hate information like that before reading something!
You know it's the young boy and girl, in this case they become best friends at 10 years old. Cade and Mackenzie. Over the years they

I can't even... This book is so gripping, so heartbreaking... and there's so much more to be told! This is the first book I've read by Chloe Walsh and I am hooked. H.O.O.K.E.D. The feels... oh the feels... I will be eagerly waiting for the next book in this series... impatiently I might add because this book is nothing short of amazing.

As soon as I read the synopsis for Blurred Lines I knew I had to read it, and once I read the prologue I knew I was going to love this book.

I honestly had no idea what to expect, being that the synopsis isn’t very detailed. At first I thought ‘this is going to be a cute love story, maybe a little emotion, but def a happy ending.’ Boy was I freaking wrong. Goodness the freaking emotions that were etched in EVERY SINGLE PAGE was beyond anything I was expecting. I never read anything by Chloe, so

Surely there is another book? The ending was far too abrupt to be anything but a cliffhanger - and if not then the book was just not finished.

Umm what kind of ending was that??! God I hate cliffhangers so much.

Blurred line was amazing. But it contained a lot of serious issues that my heart can't bear. I loved everything but there is a part I wish I could have erase from my memory. The separation part from Mackenzie's Pov. It made me feel sick to my stomach, reading her Pov was so hard, I struggled. The author did warned us at the begging but I brushed it off, thinking I could actually read it without vomiting. My stomach is just that

I was lucky enough to read an ARC of this book and holy sh*t. I feel traumatised and torn and a million other emotions. Mackenzie and Cade's story was so incredibly powerful that it made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. There were moments I could hardly bear to read Kenzie's pain and heartache and others when I felt like crying for Cade. This is a powerful story. Five well deserved stars.

Blurring Lines (Blurred Lines, #1
The story begins when they are 10 years old and meet for the first time.
The author describes each year until they are teens.They have common friends.
There are many disagreements between teenagers,be it jealousy or something else.
Until one day out of blue something happens ,which will change their lives forever.
And Epilogue let us shock and cliff like always Chloe Walsh makes her books.
Overall shocked me this story,kidnap,rape,tortured,abuse ,emotional ,messed up

I was sooooo not prepared for how good Blurring Lines turned out to be! When I accepted the ARC I thought I was signing on for a hot steamy romance/erotica type story. Then I read a few reviews on Amazon and found out that this book dealt with some really heavy issues but I wasn’t sure what exactly since the early reviews were all a little vague, thankfully! I wasn’t disappointed in learning this information since I usually prefer story-lines with a darker undertone and seedy characters so ...more

This book gutted me!

Every once in a while you find a book that speaks to you on numerous levels, this book did it for me. As a survivor, it refreshing to see that someone gets it. While reading this book I was crying during 85% of it! A book like this is why I read! A book that makes you feel, makes you bleed. I loved the main character of Mackenzie(Kenz). She's a survivor and doesn't realize it yet! I hope there's more books where I can see her develop into the

This is the first book I’ve read by Chloe Walsh and she definitely has a new fan in me. I read A LOT…like a book every couple of days and I had a serious book hangover that had lasted over a week. I had started about 4 books and wasn’t able to get into any of them so I asked some of my book buddies what to read next and they recommended Blurring Lines. I read this book in one sitting and I am reeling from the tremendous beating my emotions took from Cade and Kenzie’s story.

Cade and Kenzie have loved each other basically since the time they met at 10 years old. They became fast best friends and were inseparable. As they started to grow up, those feeling started to blossom into something more. A profound love that is so rare is people so young. At the tender age of 15 they are ripped apart in such a way that you wonder how can they ever recover?
When they are reunited after 3 years everything has changed and not for the best. Lives altered forever.

At first, I thought about giving this a higher rating.
But there is a few things about this book that really don't sit right with me. And I am not even talking about the abduction, rape etc.

For starters, there aren't really any nice characters in this book.
Cade, yes okay he is "nice" but eugh just too "nice" and annoying.
MacKenzie, I feel like I was supposed to like her but I just didn't. I feel awful for even saying/typing that. I felt sorry for her and I wouldn't wish what happened to her on my

“The stars will have to wait … I need you on the ground with me …”
4 hours: the amount of time it took me to devour this book! Chloe Walsh took me on a emotional roller coaster I wasn't ready for. Blurred Lines sucked me in from the first chapter. Walsh writes a powerful and heart wrenching book, with two incredibly broken hearts fighting each other. Cade and Mackenzie were life long friends until one night changed their life, they lost each other, their innocence, and their what could have been.
Jul 19, 2015 rated it really liked it
I’m so angry after reading this, with the exception of Kade, Mackenzie and her father all the characters were unlikeable. I find it bazaar that in this world victims are blamed and shamed for circumstances that were out of their control, I was disgusted by the way everyone treated Mackenzie. I think I was most disappointed with her so called friend Rita, I understand she was also friend with Emily, but knowing everything that she’d been through I fail to see how she could treat her like ...more

OMG...what did I just read. I have read some books I thought were really good recently but this just blew every one of them out of the water..I am so glad I waited until the second book was released as I don't think I could cope. I was virtually in tears reading this and my stomach was a bag of butterflies....I don't know what Chloe Walsh is on but she needs to keep taking it and keep to read the 2nd book now...I also cannot wait for Thorn to be released. This is beyond 5 stars..

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Cade and Mackeznie have been friends since childhood. This book follows their heartbreaking journey into adulthood. I cried as I read this book. I don't want to reveal anything but have tissues ready. This book, like most of Chloe's other ones, is an emotional roller-coaster. 5+ stars.

This is pretty intense

All the way through but it has a good strong story line. I liked it but at the same time it was really hard to read. There were several times I had to come back to it because it was tough to comprehend and painful. Defiantly a tear jerker and it doesn't end good and I'm assuming there's another book but I hate the way it ended uggghhhh

Well this book just successfully crushed me. I knew going in Cade and Mackenzie wouldn't get a HEA. But come on. What Mackenzie endured was a nightmare. What saved her was her love for her best friend Cade. Although he would do anything for her. She needs to save herself. Loved It but I want more.

Against my better judgement I read this because I knew it ended on a cliffhanger and that there may not be a follow up.. I really hope that Chloe decides to keep writing. This was an amazing read.

Difficult storyline, ends on a cliffy, and there's no sign there will be a follow-up...still 5 stars from me!
