The Fragile Line Part 3 by Alicia Kobishop is the absolute PERFECT ending to Matt and Chloe's story. Although, if Alicia decided to write more for them, I wouldn't complain.I loved their story.

This book is so passionate and so real. Alicia's writing will make you feel everything. Every struggle they have, every bit of pain they feel and the love. The love will flow through you.

Chloe and Matt finally start to figure things out in this one and prove to everyone reading that no matter the obstacle, love can conquer all if you let it. I really enjoyed the journey I have taken with their characters throughout all three books. A definite must read. *Please note you must read Books 1 and 2 first*

I give The Fragile Line Part 3 by Alicia Kobishop 5 out of 5 FML STARS!!

This is part 3 in Chloe and Matts story. If you haven't read the first 2 already then you really need to in order to understand anything in part 3.

This was the perfect ending to their story. Alicia has a way with words that makes you feel everything in her stories. As well as giving you characters that you immediately fall in love with.

Finally, Matt and Chloe are starting to figure things out and prove that no matter what is thrown in their path that true love can conquer it all. I enjoyed this entire series and the ride that Alicia took us on. Chloe gives up her old life of drinking and random hook ups but she feels like she's still not deserving of Matt. When Matt shows up on TV looking cozy with one of the co-stars of the show he's on she believes that things are over for good and he's moved on. But not everything you see is what it is. Can Matt convince her of that?

This series had me twisted up in knots all the way through. Wanting to strangle the characters at times as well as hug them and soothe away the hurt they were feeling. Alicia is brilliant when it comes to giving you not only a story you will enjoy but also giving you all the feels throughout. You will be laughing, crying, and ready to smack the daylights out of some people but I PROMISE it is worth the ride.

Alicia has a fan for life and I can't wait to see what she comes out with next.

I was given this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

4 Stars!

I love a happy ending and this book definitely had one. No spoilers here, so I shan't go in to specifics, but Matt, Liv, Logan, and Chloe are all happy at the end. Once again, A.K. began at the exact moment the previous book ended and the story picked up momentum as it went. An accident brings everyone together again secrets are told, forgiveness given and love fills the air to wash away the sad.

I really enjoyed the way this book offered closure for Matt and Chloe, and even some for Logan and Liv. My favorite portion was that between Chloe and her sister Brynn. A.K. maintained her high quality characters and descriptiveness til the end. This series was a great read and I highly recommend! My opinion is that these three novellas would've been a great full-length novel, but that's just me, and it didn't detract from the story in any way.

I absolutely loved this series!

Chloe and Matt's story was more then I could've hoped for. Although I wish it would've ended differently, I was still happy for everything that happened for them both.

The Fragile Line Part 3 is a PERFECT ending to Matt and Chloe's story.

Alicia has a way with words that makes you get the feels, as well as giving you characters that you immediately fall in love with.

Chloe seems to learn how to grow up more, and makes a very good friend in Carrie. She starts to become the person she really wants to be, of how she sees herself.

This has been such a heart-warming series, and I'm really fortunate that I got the chance to read this! It is such an addicting book, I couldn't put it down, I'm glad it's a section from The Fragile Line Series

wow, This is final installment to Fragile Line series. And it did not disappoint.

This book carries on from end of Part two. We see whats happens after that ending.

Chloe learns to grow up more, and makes a very good friend in Carrie. She starts to become the person she really wants to be. She is also missing Matt and wanting to become better for him.

Matt goes onto be what he always dreamed of, but also still has strong feelings for Chloe, but also knows why she did what she did.

We follow their journey before they come back to what they know, and fight for it. I really enjoyed this series.

Let me state for the record, this is Part 3 of the series, so you MUST read Parts 1 & 2 first. Chloe has done the first unselfish act in a long time, when she let Matt go, so he didn't lose out on something great. She's let go of her old life of drinking, and hookups, but she still feels like she's still not the person that Matt deserves yet. When she sees Matt on TV, he's holding the hand of his co-star, so she feels like it's really over. So I have evolved into a new person, along with Chloe, as I actually feel her emotions like they're my own, and my heart hurts for her. Alicia Kobishop is just brilliant! There's no other word to describe her with how she's changed me along with the bad girl. Some added in twists had me dropping f-bombs quite loudly, and I'm still dropping them as I type this review, from all of my dramatic girly girl emotions. It's safe to say that I'm a HUGE FAN GIRL NOW, and so I don't apologize for any gushing, as everyone who reads this will find gushing is a side effect. One thing is for sure, I can't HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND reading this amazing series to EVERYONE ENOUGH!

Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, Fragile Lines 3 happened! This book just cemented Matt's sweetheart status, in my book! And Chloe has grown so much, also! This has been such a heart-warming series, and I'm really fortunate that I got the chance to read this! It is such an addicting book, I couldn't put it down.

OMG, Chloe loves Matt but won't hold him back, she loves him enough to let go, but not forever, she's making herself better for them both but while away can they survive ? Matt and Chloe have grown alot and came a long way . This was a great series with a great ending loved it.

4.5 stars!! What a perfect way to end the story...

This is not a stand alone. Be sure to read part one and part two prior to this book!!

Chloe and Matt have came a long way from the first book. I adore their story and I love their backgrounds. This book touched on so many things. It was beautifully written.

I love the pearl necklace part. To have FML on the necklace was icing on the cake. Chloe has my 100% backing and it took three books to get me there but she has changed all the way around. Matt is still the same beautiful man.

I enjoyed these books because it was so in depth. I am glad these stories all continued with the same couple so I didn't
feel as though I missed anything. There are some love stories still left open that maybe could have a book of their own?!?! Just know if you are looking for a heart breaking, beautiful, loving, funny, charming second chance love story this is it!!

See my full review under the box set!
This is the third book in this series. See my full review under the box set! I do highly recommend this book/series, but you should read The Fine Line first. That is a standalone or what this series is a spinoff from. If you read this series first, before the book, you will have spoilers. I'm hoping that there are more written.

I am very proud of how far Chloe has come. Thank you Alicia for writing about "the bad guy". She was so misunderstood. That's how she wanted it at the time but still :)

I've got to say, this series really surprised me.

Alicia Kobishop took a character that you were meant to dislike from The Fine Line and made her the focal character of The Fragile Line series, and she did it in such a way that at first you want to hate her. She's manipulative, and a liar, and uses people to get what she wants, but then after she meets Matt, she changes. She sees the error in the things she's done and works to better herself.

The entire third part of this series I couldn't put down. Chloe has made a 180 and the emotional and moral development that she goes through during the series was really touching. She really turned into a very caring and understanding person by the end, and it made me happy to see the changes in her.

Matt is such an amazing character as well. In each part of the series you can see how big of a heart he has and how far he's willing to go to help people. I was really happy with where the characters ended up at the end.

I think one of my favorite scenes from this part is when Chloe faces Liv finally. It was touching, and really earned that last piece of redemption I was hoping for.

I will say some of the side characters (mainly Brynn and Ryann) had a really intriguing story and I would love to see a spin off or novella about them *hint hint Alicia*

Overall this series was an awesome read and I highly recommend it!

This is the conclusion to the story of Matt and Chloe.

We find out what decision Matt made about the once in a lifetime opportunity he was given in part 2.

In this final part Chloe finds peace with a few people that she had hurt and someone who had hurt her. She finally got some closure.

If you read A fine Line we are brought back to what happened with Logan.

Will Chloe and Matt be able to move on and be together or will Chloe continue to push him away.

In the conclusion of this three book novella series Chloe finally clears the air so to speak and rights the things that she did wrong. It took me until this book to really like her but by the end I did. I was able to respect her, and understand her past, and what made her act the way she did.

Chloe really grew up from the start of the series. Right from the start of this book was hooked and excited to see how they were going to get their HEA and I wasn't let down. Bravo to the author from making me go from hating a character to absolutely enjoying a character!

We get the closure that we want with characters but at the same time it leaves me wanting more and for certain characters to get full books or atleast to see how things panned out and how it worked for them. Overall, I really hope to see some more of these characters in the future. 4 stars #2OCCJD

Chloe selflessly makes the decision to let the love of her life Matt go, in order for him to pursue his dream job. While Chloe is working hard to continue to make herself into a better person, she see’s Matt on TV, and is devastated when he is with another woman, and thinks he has decided to move on without her. Is everything as it seems though? You really need to read this awesome series for yourself!
The author has written a passionate and flawless storyline with this series, and she is getting better and better with each book. I am so looking forward to reading more from this amazing author in the future.

This was exactly what I needed! We get sexy & BA Matt again, we get more Pink (aka Chloe), and thank goodness, we get closure!

Ms. Kobishop did an excellent job wrapping up this story. Feelings were admitted, love was professed, and amends were made.

Matt & Chloe have both grown so much since book #1 - getting emotionally stronger for themselves, and for each other. I got all the feels while reading about these characters I've grown to love. I'm going to miss these two, but they will always have a spot in my heart.

This was the perfect conclusion to Matt & Chloe's story. Well done, Alicia!!

I received a copy of this book through the Quirky Blind Date with a Book in exchange for a fair and honest review.....this is the final in the series of novellas...finally Chloe completely redeems herself in my eyes...and takes responsibility for her actions and faces her demons...

I love the myriad of characters that are found in the pages of this series but in my heart there is a special place for Carrie and her daughter Piper who befriend Chloe and inadvertently turn her world around...

Chloe has a lot of unfinished business in her life and this conclusion allows her to tie off all those loose ends ..... a great, and perfect close to the series....

The Fragile Lines is a Three part series. This is the first book/ series I have read by Alicia. I was pulled in from the beginning. Alicia gives you a little bit of everything in this series emotional wise.

The Fragile Line Part Three-
Chloe is trying to find herslf and grow up so she can better herself for Matt. Matt is living his dream. He told her he would wait till she was ready. Chloe may be to late to get Matt back. Although things happen for a reason and it could be for the better or the worse. You'll have to grab a copy and see how Matt and Chloe's story ends.

Why is this over!? I need more! Please?

Title: The Fragile Lines Part 3
Author: Alicia Kobishop

4 unexpected stars

Wow. For a conclusion to a series, Alicia Kobishop absolutely knows how to draw you back in and make your eyes tear up (in the good way). With the cliffhanger that we were given in the second part, it could have gone in so many ways, especially as Chloe watched Matt start, what she believed was, his new life with a woman he loved.

4 breath taking dreams stars

I won't lie. My jaw dropped a few times and i sputtered - i hoped against all hope that it wouldn't just end the way it did with both of them living separate lives. They came out and grew so much with each other's support that it did break my heart. I couldn't read fast enough to find out how it would all end and I had everything crossed hoping it would help. I can't wait to read more from Alicia Kobishop in the future!!

Review by Jen Skewes

This is the final installment in this series and I loved it. It was the perfect ending and even had a little bit of drama thrown in there as well. This is honestly my favorite part of the series. This is where everything comes to head. We find out once and for all what will happen with the two of the. As the third installment starts, Matt is off to fulfill a dream of his while Chloe is trying to find herself and be the person that she once was, but she is doing it all by herself, without Matt by her side. She let him go and while she knows that it was the best decision she sometimes wonders if she made a mistake.

Matt loves Chloe and he knows that she is it for him but he also understand why she pushed him away. He knows in his heart that if he just gives it times that things will work out between them. But how much time will pass by before these two see other and finally talk and admit how they feel. And will it be too late?

I loved this novella so much. I fell in love with Matt even more in this one. He is just an amazing guy who has so much love for Chloe. He is patient and kind and just completely swoon worthy. The words that come out of his mouth can melt your heart in one minute and the next have your heart racing. I n the end I loved Chloe. Once the Logan issue was behind her and you found out why she acted the way that she did it was easy to forgive her. She grew so much as a character in this series, that by the end you couldn't help but love her for it.

There is one moment in this book that I loved. Ok make that two but this one involved a letter that i thought was the perfect way for Chloe to get the closure that she needed but also be able to forgive and move on. The other part was the sweet moment between Matt and Chloe that just melted me into a puddle of mush. This was a fantastic series. I hope that we get to see more of these characters in the future. I think Gavin needs to find love and so does out new fiend Carrie.
