He wanted her the first time he saw her. It didn't matter that he was on stage in front of a room full of reporters, or that his publicist was telling him to move on, or that she was asking him a question about racing. One look at her "just been bedded" hair — completely at odds with her deliciously prim appearance — and Ty Riggs is hooked.

Corrine Bellows is one of the woe

Crossing the Line was a good read.

I enjoyed the storyline, it was well written and the characters were entertaining.
Crossing the Line had the perfect amount of drama and sweet romantic moments to keep you turning the pages.

I enjoyed watching Ty and Cori come together and fall in love. They had an instant attraction with amazing chemistry that grew into love.


Overall this was a heartfelt, romantic read with relatable characters that will bring out the feels.

Crossing The Line is about a race car driver and a sports reporter. It's short, sweet and full of angst. It was sweet because Ty and Cori were so cute together, yet full of angst because Ty was burdened by a secret from his father and Cori was burdened by the reasons she met Ty. When you got secrets, dating a reporter probably isn't the best idea, however, Ty just couldn't stay away from Cori. I have to admit, I was nervous while also enjoying this read. I knew the secrets were going to come out ...more

Crossing the Line is a morality tale of sorts. It ponders ethics and attraction with the lines of right and wrong becoming blurred. I received an ARC of Ms. North's latest novel in exchange for an honest review. The story centers around fast cars, sly women and a conspiracy that could blow up the careers of two people. Cori is a smart broad but she makes questionable choices, mainly getting involved with the one man that could steal her heart and topple her career. Ty and Cori are bad for each o ...more

If you are looking for a quick, easy to read, contemporary romance with a car-racing/journalism theme then this story is a good pick for you.

Cori Bellowes, a recent graduate with a journalism degree, is sent by her online news company to do an in-depth story on racer Ty Riggs. She is supposed to do “anything” to get the “dirt” on him, his company, his father and anything else she can find out. Wanting to do well but not wanting to be unethical she is in a dilemma – even more of a dilemma when sh

Crossing the Line is the 3rd book in the Hard Driving series and while most series you need to read in order to follow characters growth this book can most definitely be read as a standalone.

Ty and Cori have an instant attraction when they meet at a press interview after one of Ty's races, and while a relationship between the race car driver and the journalist would be frowned upon neither one of them wants to walk away from the sparks. Both Ty and Cori are keeping secrets from one another and

Quick Summary: Short and sweet

Review: Crossing the Line #3 had a good storyline. The protagonists were strong, driven, and passionate. I liked that they had integrity, despite the challenges they faced both separately as well as together. Though there relationship came about rather quickly, it seemed like a natural progression versus a forced push towards the finish. In my opinion, this story could have been a bit longer. I would certainly have read it. I was enthralled from the time I started r

I really liked Ty he could be quite sweet, "when they finally parted, he finished. “I’m serious. I want to at least try to be worthy of you. I want to give you what you give me. Beauty and brains.” He looked a little embarrassed, then gave her a sly grin. “And orgasms.” I enjoyed this book, Ty and Cori were perfect for one another.

Honestly I am not entirely sure why I read this one until the end. Probably had to do with the fact that it wasn't super long and it takes a decent amount of effort for me to toss something on the DNF pile. I probably would have enjoyed it more if it were a train wreck, instead it was just kind of dull.

I didn't feel like there was all that much chemistry between Ty and Cori, or rather it just went from introductions to 'look this is a thing' in a few pages. So we are just sort of told they like

Crossing the Line is the third book in Audra North’s Hard Driving series, and the first to feature the sometimes fractious relationship between the press and the race car drivers who rely, for good or bad, on their coverage. Ty Riggs is becoming an established name on the Riggs driving team, following in the footsteps of his successful father, Bobby. It’s a family venture, and all the people who work for the team are loyal and competent – now.

But at one time, twenty years before, Bobby Riggs’ cr

***ARC Provided by the Author for an Honest Review***

‘Crossing the Line’ by Audra North is a book based on the sport of Car Racing. A subject I am not really interested in as I don’t see the point of racing around in circles at ridiculous speeds. In saying that, it is a very popular sport and mine is just one opinion.

Cori Bellows is a reporter, a sports reporter to be more specific, who is given an opportunity to shine. A chance to be more than just the office assistant, at Gold Cup Sports, she

Crossing the Line is a very quick and easy read featuring a charismatic race car driver and a journalist being sent to dig up dirt on him at any cost under the threat of losing her job if she fails.

Ty is known for his laid back personality and easygoing demeanor off the track so an uncharacteristic fight with another driver who accused him of cheating has him in the blinding focus of the media spotlight for all the wrong reasons.

I’m not quite sure what I expected from this book – I saw the author, saw it was motorsport and I was in. I think the least I expected was more high octane action and some actual racing, with a dilemma that was perhaps a little more unusual than young sports reporter expected to whore herself out in order to gain promotion and dig up dirt on otherwise clean driver.

I don’t know, this one just missed the mark for me. For a reporter who is being blackmailed, Cori shows a complete lack of

I really liked the first two books in this series. I was hoping to enjoy this one just as much but it fell a bit flat for me. I didn’t really feel as connected with Ty as I had Grady and Kerri. I liked the little bits of him that we had gotten in the other books, but he wasn’t as dynamic on his own. And I didn’t really feel his connection with Cori as much as I had felt the connection between the other two couples. Comparisons aside, this book was a quick, easy read.

Corrine Bellows is a reporter for a sports magazine called "Gold Cup" where she's been basically sidelined since she started six months prior. The magazine was hired to write a story about Ty Riggs, a stock car driver, about possible cheating. Only she doesn't know who hired them. No matter what it takes shes supposed to get the dirt on Ty.

Ty has a secret that could destroy his dad, but he vowed to keep it when cheating rumors started to become "loud". The first time that he saw Corrine, he wan

The hero and heroine of Crossing the Line both suffered from a serious case of insta-lust, which I wasn't too crazy about, (Isn't seeing someone across a crowded room for a first time and immediately picturing them naked beneath you a bit on the creepy side? Maybe more than a bit??) so it did take me a while to really warm up to them and their story. Once Cori and Ty knew each other long enough to actually have a relationship, their book became a lot easier to read.

Ty Riggs has a problem. He's recently blown his cool with a fellow driver over accusations of cheating and even though he's not involved, past history could come back to haunt him.

Cori Bellows is a reporter hired to get the dirt on Ty, but when she meets him for the first time, there's a connection there that has her questioning whether she can go through with what her boss wants her to do. It doesn't help that Ty is totally in immediate lust for her, and things get steamy between them

I accidentally stumbled upon this gem and was quite surprised at how I took to the book. Racing is something that I can say does not excite me, as you would never find me watching a Nascar racing on the weekend or attending a racing event. However, Audra North created two characters who readers can instantly connect with and want to get to know.

I really enjoyed Corrine Bellows character as she had to work her way to get where she was and she followed her dreams to be a sports reporter, even thou

I'm never one to truly enjoy books with big secrets between our key players, but Ty and Cori's relationship was one that was equal parts cute and equal parts angsty. I needed the truth to come out about why they truly met one another. I knew that with Ty and his past, Cori's secrets were going to blow up spectacularly and I personally just needed it done so they could get on to their happily ever after.

The racing theme was what drew me to this book. I'm a big fan of racing and in turn driver romances. Being from the UK, we don't have Stock Car racing so I was also intrigued to find out more about it.

Crossing the Line was a short read. Things happen very quickly and in what feels like a short space of time. In a nutshell the book centres on Cori being sent to find an exposé on Ty who's been accused of cheating to win. Cori's boss is an asshole who tells her to use any means necessary to get clo

I loved it! Cori is a sports journalist, but her boss is not taking her seriously, (journalism is a mans world) until she's told to interview the hottest new driver on the racing circuit, Ty Riggs, she's ecstatic. Finally she has a chance to prove herself, but when she meets the handsome racer Cori is more interested in Ty then talking racing, very unprofessional Cori, and Ty's smouldering looks don't help. This is going to get very interesting.

Ty is doing what he does best and loves, racing. Hi

Even in the world of race cars there is gossip and dishonest behavior. Years ago Ty's dad had a scandal break out and it's being rehashed again. It's Cori's job as a journalist to uncover the scandal and find the truth. From this point it is pretty predictable how it their relationship becomes romantic and how the scandal impacts Ty's world.
