I was a thief.

The invisible girl only he could see.

The woman who wanted to be more.

He was the mark.

The extraordinary cowboy who stole my sixteen-year-old heart.

The damaged man who still owned it, even four years later.

The Line was where we began.

Where fates collided.

Where truths derailed.

The place where our love story ends.

5 Time To Fly, Little Bird Stars

I was too cold.
Too hungry.
Too tired.
I couldn't afford to get off this line, no matter how much I wanted to.

She'd stopped on the sidewalk on her way into the building and stared at my seventeen-year-old self hard. Studying me. She pursed her lips, and I knew what she saw. I was so starved that I was practicall

“Now it’s time for you to fly, Little Bird.”

I have said it on more than one occasion my love for cowboys is infinite….. yes infinite! So, when I was given the opportunity to read The Line I literally jumped at the chance and couldn’t wait to dive right in. This is my first book by Amie Knight and I absolutely loved it to the point where I am already looking forward to reading future books by this amazingly talented author. If you are looking for a heart-achingly beautiful read, that

I really loved this book, didn't want to put it down. The author manages to get the emotions just right. It had all of the elements that I look for in a great cowboy romance story. The characters were intriguing and had depth and drew me into the story effortlessly. A hero every woman dreams of. A leading lady that is strong, sweet, and beautiful. It was great to watch the protective instincts kick in for both of Cole and Every. When they start to explore their sexual attraction the scenes get v ...more

Overall Opinion: This was better than I thought it'd be, and I did enjoy it. I did, however, feel a little disappointed at some of the lost potential in it. I felt like we could've gotten so much deeper with these characters, and that the overall premise was good but just was missing something. I'm not sure how to explain it, but I felt like it just missed the mark with the potential for some strong connections to these characters from their hurtful pasts. I enjoyed the side character
While riding the train, a handsome cowboy speaks to a 16 year old girl who's looking for her next mark. He spends the day with her feeding her and just talking. He wants to save her. She can't help but fall a little in love.

Four years later he's different but she's different too. She just wants to help him like he helped her.

He was betrayed by his fiancée and his brother. But what's worse is the sweet little boy he thought was his isn't. He's grieving for what he lost. Can Everly soothe his so

A little too insta and too sweet for me
God this book!
I cried at my office in lunch room! Not even ashamed of that!
The hero! He called himself an ass, but god, he was perfect.
I'll review this book once I sleep on it because right now I'm still sobbing!
Quick safety tip: there's a 4 year gap between meetings. Neither were celibate. Hero's engagement broke off about 3 months before they met again. HOWEVER, hero was not in love with his ex fiancée. He was NOT a manwhore and he DID believe in love. H and h had

Well I guess I’m in the minority here since I didn’t love it as much but I did like well enough. I think it was more of a “me” because the writing was good and the story was interesting. BUT I don’t know I just didn’t feel a connection with the Mc, at times I felt like the author was trying too hard with everything going on. It did have its funny and sweet moments, overall it was a good read.💜

Many stars for the kindness and side characters.
I adored Mamma Lou!
The romance wasn't quite my coppa.
The hero pushed her away, she came across as weak sometimes.
I didn't enjoy sex-scenes much. This whole thing with him wanting her to ask/to beg him was a bit annoying.
Overall a very good book with moral and humanity.

You know sometimes you read books you love, and you get to know authors and see into their hearts through their stories and words. And when that happens they just know how to touch your heart, those books just make you feel something FIERCE.. and with Amie Knight I'll tell you this she just does it for me.. oh my goodness does she ever?

This story is wholeheartedly about second chances and falling love. About family, about learning to live and to accept the gift your given. I

This was just ok. I guess I wasn't feeling it as much. I don't get why heroine was so hurt that hero treated her like he did when they saw each other again after 4 years. She did stole his wallet after he tried to help her. And she wanted him to open his arms for her? I would have done the same hero did on not trusting her. ...more

Just not working for me.

I do not know what is going on with this book after 30% in. I think whats really confusing me is the time line. I am not sure it is present, past or future.

And the climax building for every events are too dragging. So i stop reading it.

This is such a beautifully told story. I loved every moment of this book and didn't want it to end. Everly grew into such a strong beautiful woman after a horrible upbringing. Cole found love and peace after losing everything. Together the chemistry between Cole and Everly was undeniable. Loved the crazy and outrageous BFF Cody. This is a great emotion read that I feel everyone will enjoy.

WOW! This story blew me away. I could not put it down - it was such a unique and special book. Superb characters that not only entertained but enchanted me.

It's that HO-HO-HO time of the year, so there won't be a full review although this one certainly deserves many accolades.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS to one and all!
That was a fab surprise, a really sweet and uplifting read.

“Welcome to The Line – where you’ll make enough memories to play for a lifetime”.

Wow! This is the second book I read of this author and it is my new favorite. Such a poignant story of love, hope, healing and a second chance at life.
Everly had a sad life, abandoned as a baby and ending up living in various foster homes. As a teenager she ended up on the street -- homeless, stealing from people on trains to survive. One night while she was making her usual rounds on the train she met the young cow
I liked the middle of the book.

I would NOT recommend the audio version. There are two readers for the alternating POVs of both MCs'. Cole's reader is terrible. He sounds like an aging valley boy. Everly's reader is OK.

Everly grew up in foster homes and on the street after her mother left her at a bus depot.
When she's 16 she meets a young man on the bus where she regularly picks pockets.
Four years later she meets him again under far different circumstances.
Now Cole isn't the sweet young man any

OMG!! How do I begin. I know this isn't your typical review. I'm a book freak, I read everyday. Even when a book is part of a series, I have to read them all (sometimes they are really bad).

This is my first book by this author and certainly not my last. Her words grabbed me from the first page. Her characters bewitched me. I needed to read more. I wanted to know their story. And I am so glad I did.

Everly Woods and Cole Briggs met one night. A night where just for a minute, Everly didn’t seem invisible. Someone saw her. A night where Cole saw a broken girl and had no idea that just one small kind action would change everything. Fast forward four years and fate brings them together

A gorgeous story that is so cleverly layered, designed, and beautifully written that I devoured it in one day. It will gut you in the best possible way, and teach you a thing or two about love, hope, determination, forgiveness, and family.
Happenstance may have introduced a homeless young girl and a compassionate cowboy, but destiny reunites them four years later in the most delicious of circumstances. Everly and Cole are the epitome of soulmates, and Amie Knight proves it with heart-wrenching p

Hallelujah! Cowboy romances are making a comeback. And THE LINE by Amie Knight is the crème of the crop!!!

So you know how you get butterflies of nervous/giddy excitement fluttering in your belly right before you start a book from a new-to-you-author? Like you are preparing for a hot first date and don't know quite what you're in for, but have a gut instinct that you are gonna be swept off your feet? And then, to your relief and delight,

This is my first novel by author Amie Knight. And honestly, she has blown me away with this love story!!!

If you're looking for a book with all the feels, this is the story for you. Emotion pours off of each and every page. It has the perfect blend of sensuality, humor, and sweet romance. And I'm claiming Cowboy!!! He's mine ladies. Sorry not sorry.

Cole's caring, and protective nature just sucked me in, and then bam he opens his mouth in the bedroom and my knees go weak. The guy is bossy in the

Final Score - 5 Stars!

Amie Knight has done it again ... she is the queen of making me #UglyCry.

This book was an emotional, fabulous, and heartwarming story - I dare you not be effected by it's Southern charm and sass as well. The heroine, Everly, was bold, and strong and she's a rock-star to survive all that she has ... she completely stole the show for me and it's because of her strength that cried so hard and loved every minute of it.

The Line is about a young homeless girl and what she does t
