With book three coming out, I thought it was time to catch up on this series. I enjoyed this book. I did think book 1 was better, but this was a good sequel.

I was a little thrown off about the main relationship conflict, I wasn't really getting it to be honest. Than I remembered just how neurotic Nora could be, and it made more sense. I still don't know if I agree with how little it took, but it did move the story along. One thing you can say about this book is chemistry. Kellie and Nora have it
When you read a great book, an instant favorite kind of book, it’s a little daunting to read said favorite’s sequel. What if it sucks? What do you do? You can’t clear bad things from your mind. Brain bleach hasn’t been invented yet. Do you read it? Or just ignore it and wait for your friends to tell you it’s okay. Decisions, decisions!

I loved Blurred Lines by KD Williamson, I mean gushing adoration type of love. It struck a chord with me, and I found myself thinking about the main characters day
So, Book 2 is when the other shoe drops.

Let me backtrack a bit. In Book 1, Detective Kelli McCabe and Dr. Nora Whitmore are like fire and ice coming together. For such intense, dueling personalities, the lack of sizzling melodrama in the first book seemed a little too 'nice and easy'. Not that there wasn't any dueling. But It was done with an air of courtesy and respect. Boundaries were pushed and moved, but only with mutual consent. There was a distinct lack of melodrama. Maybe I've been condi
Was this competently written, as in it's well edited, formatting is good, and there's a deliberately thought out story line? Yes. Did I enjoy it? No.

I read the first book, "Blurred Lines", and had fun with it. I particularly enjoyed the dynamics between the two leads Nora and Kelli and hoped to find that spark here but ultimately it fell flat. I wished I could've liked this but I just didn't.

What I especially had trouble with were two things: 1) The conflict that occurred between Kelli and Nora
Crossing Lines is an excellent sequel to Blurred Lines. In my opinion even better than the first book. The tone of the story is more serious and somewhat darker with more angst and drama. Characterization is the author's strong point which is essential in the story where the most important part is the relationship between the main characters. Nora and Kelli remain true to themselves, and the development of their relationship is both convincing and interesting.
The pacing is flawless, building st

This is one of those books where it is essential you read the first in the Cops and Docs series, Blurred Lines, to understand what these characters have gone through and how events in the recent past have shaped Kelli and Nora’s new relationship.

The opening pages while sweet reminded me why romance novels often end just as the couple achieve their Happy Ever After. Crossing Lines begins with Kelli home from work and relaxing with a beer while Nora prepares dinner. It sounds wonderful and boring.
Crossing Lines by KD Williamson is the second book in her Cops and Docs series. You might be able to read it without first reading Blurred Lines, but I wouldn’t recommend it.

Kelli is still just as loud and brash and Nora is just as brilliant and standoffish as we saw in Blurred Lines, except that they’ve each changed enough to have space for the other in their lives. The character growth is my favourite part of Crossing Lines. Who they are at the end is drastically different from who they are at

I absolutely loved it! As I mentioned in my review of Blurred Lines (Book 1 in the Cops and Docs series) I read book 1 in a few hours and as soon as I was finished I moved directly onto book 2 and blitzed through it in record time too.

I had applied for a reviewer copy of Crossing Lines, however I couldn't wait to be approved after reading book 1. I needed to know how the story progressed. Book 2, starts where Book 1 finished, therefore I'd recommend reading the first book in the series to get th

If you enjoyed the first book in this series Blurred Lines you won't be disappointed because this book took it to the next level. What a ride of emotions and character growth that will leave you wanting more by the end. The angst had me at the edge of my seat throughout the book.

I fell even more in love with Kelli and Norma in this book. The struggles they both went through in the book I felt like I was with them every step of the way.

Fantastic book, a must read.

This is a must read sequel to Blurred Lines, although I am sure it would be just as enjoyable as a standalone book.
Tough cop Kelli and surgeon Nora return trying to work on there relationship along with some stalking and murder. As you can expect the relationship doesn't come easily for these characters and there are a few ups and downs.
Overall I really enjoyed this book and would happily recommend it to others, it was an easy read and I was sorry the leave these characters when the book ended
I really enjoyed this book. Great pacing. But I felt it ended a bit abruptly or just maybe I wasn't ready for the book to end? I wouldn't mind reading more Kelli & Nora. However, I am looking forward for her third installment of "Cops & Docs" which I understand will have 2 new protagonists unconnected with K & N. It will be interesting to see what Williamson can do with her totally own characters. K & N were inspired by Rizzoli & Isles. It's going to be a long wait.
An excellent sequel to a very good book.
Just a man's point of view
This book is wonderful, beautiful. At the same time sweet and psychologically rich and intense.

The story begins immediately after Blurred Lines ending and I’d say the two books are actually only one novel without any gap between them. Blurred Lines ended with no hangover in a pretty relaxed point of Kelli and Nora’s love story, but the general feeling was that their relationship was still imperfect and in an initial phase. Crossing Lines continues the love story tale, expanding it, making it dee

Nora Whitmore's walls have slightly come down with Kelli McCabe and opening up to co-workers is a new experience for her. Kelli McCabe is happy with Nora and is where she wants to be regarding work. Nora and Kelli's relationship is put to the test as devastating news comes to light and a murderer is on the loose.

First, I haven't read the first of the series called Blurred Lines and maybe that would've made the difference in my review. It is easy enough to follow the story in the second book with

Well, the cursing did lessen here compared to blurred lines.
I guess, you just have to get used to it esp. with Kelly's personality, she'll be boring with it.

Reading from the first book, Kelly is really intense, hot tempered with a dirty mouth but she can be good if she really wants to.

They did grew together here esp. Nora.
She's more open and accepting, more friendly towards her co workers and Kelly's family.
I think she's finally done with the Ice queen reputation.
They are totally opposite but

This book is for anyone who wants to read an exceptionally well written piece of lesbian fiction, which is both intense and light hearted at the same time. Crossing Lines is the perfect follow up to Blurred Lines because it remains true to the characters and their development is believeable. KD Williamson knows how to use humour without allowing it to overshadow her characters personalities and allowing it to take over the story. I love that any conflict between the characters is not drawn out a ...more

The Story Continues
Crossing Lines brings back Kelli and Nora from Blurred Lines. This is a continuation of the story and if you read this first, you are missing out on a lot.
Just when all seems well with our heroes, the other shoe drops and it falls hard! Kelli's brother Anthony is up t his usual tricks and Nora's blackmailers aren't quite finished with her yet. Someone has revenge of their mind and has targeted the good Dr. Add in painful breakup and you have yourself quite the mess. Can Kell
What a fantastic sequel. I truly love K.D Williamson's writing. Other authors employ the same technique of cycling through 2+ characters POV, but Williamson writes Nora and Kelli so well that it is obvious who we are viewing the world through at all times.
Further developing the two leads was perfection. I do love flawed characters who know they're flawed and work on it. No instant changes, but a steady and realistic growth. The angst was fully believable and romance is a genre where I often find

This was a fine book, picking up where Blurred Lines left off. Kelli and Nora are in love but still dealing with some of the issues that arose in the first book: Travis’ health, Tony’s drug use, and Fuller and Rader’s hatred of Nora. It was interesting to see the characters develop. In the first book, I thought Nora was another Temperance Brennan from the TV show, Bones, or I thought she seemed to be on the autism spectrum. Kelli just seemed to be a foul-mouthed cop, trying hard to be just anoth ...more

I enjoyed this book as much as I did the first one. I liked more depth to the characters and we got to see them grow together.

Very nice. Darker than the first but just as good. Author stayed true to the characters. Less laughs but more compelling in other areas. This one was more emotional.

I received ARC of this book to give an honest review. This book was EVERYTHING!!!!! It was definitely a page turner. It had me hooked from Chapter 1 all the way to the end. All the relationships in book are being tested while all the craziness is happening around them. They somehow found a way to come together as a family. With Kelli and Nora being the main characters in the book, you got a little bit of everyone as well, it was well balanced. The author really knows how to draw every emotion ou ...more

I was sent this book by Inked Rainbow Reads in exchange for an honest review.

A very emotionally charged and superbly written novel.

Quite dark at times and often very intense but Ms Williamson cleverly introduces humour at just the right time and this adds real depth and warmth to this amazing novel.

The two main characters are such polar opposites in so many ways but this novel weaves their individual characters together in such a way that you feel you know both woman and understand why they are

An honest review thanks to NetGalley. Wow. I read the first book in this series and strongly recommend to read the first book before going on to this one. Even though the first in the series was good, this book was amazing. I couldn't put it down, we saw more layers of Nora and Kelli and got to move deeper into their relationship. This book was great; I will be sure reading this over again and wait for more of Williamson's books.
