I´m not sure why I continue reading books that I dislike from page 2. It´s something I won´t be doing in 2019.

When I started Lines, I had no idea what to expect as Anna B. Doe is a new author to me. What I discovered was a wonderful, heartbreaking and refreshing story, which touched me deeply. With her captivating writing style, the author created characters with beautiful souls and amazing chemistry.

The story follows Amelia and Derek, who have known each other since they were young kids. The attraction between them is immediate, but due to their different social circles, the two can never be. Derek is

My fingers clench around soft material that is shoved into my hands. I look down at the white shirt. “What is this?”
He squirms under my confused, yet watchful stare. And if I’m not imagining it, I think I can see traces of redness coming up his cheeks. “My jersey.”
My heart skips a beat before starting to race rapidly. “And why would I need your jersey?”
“God,” he groans in frustration. “Can you be like a normal girl and just take it?”

Lots of grammar mistakes. The heroine was a doormat and the hero was an asshole. Since this book is marketed as a hate-to-love romance, I thought the heroine and hero were going to go tat for tat, but the heroine lets everyone walk all over her and I can’t tolerate that.
“Because the line between love and hate is thin,” I murmur softly. “So-fucking-thin. And I love you more then I hate you.” 💙

This is my first book by Anna and I enjoyed every single word.

I like her writing style. She drag me in the story so easy that I couldn't stop reading till the end. I like that we got both point of view in one book, because I really love to know what the main characters think, what they feel, what or who they like/love.

This is lovely YA sports romance that introduces us

DNF @ 18%. I found Derek to be abusive and controlling. I don’t understand why toxic relationships like this are promoted in books for young readers.

These are the contestants of a YA highschool sport romance drama.

Insert a little bit of angst, a push and pull, jock likes a nerdy girl but makes fun of her cause he wants to stay a tough guy in front of his teammates, but he actually liked her forever, and then when he finally reaches her to show her how he really feels, the mean girls/ex hook-up stirs a scene, making some extra problems fir our hero and he needs to grov

I was given an advanced readers copy of this book and have decided to leave a voluntary honest review. This is my first book by this author, I have to say I enjoyed it. I thought there would be more Intimate scenes but it was still good. I do however have bone to pick with Amelia, I like her I do, but what I didn't like was how passive she was. King of school or not, you never let someone who isn't significant other or liver etc tell who you can talk to. I loved Derek but that wouldn't fly with ...more

I really liked Lia, Derek, Max, Anette, Brook and Andrew and I'll read just about any sports romance that involves hockey.
Save this one for when you are in the mood for a more tame, sweet romance.

✨✨✨✨✨It was a long time since I enjoyed and high school based kind of book, and this series is the perfect way to catch up with it. I can't resist male characters who aren't afraid to go after what they want , and Derek is all that and more.. He is so confident but also so caring and sensible ,sometimes a little cave-man but after waiting so long we can accept that. Lia is the classic next door girl , who keeps on her own, and thinks no-one noticed her. But Derek alway noticed her, and now it's ...more
Anna simply never disappoints! Another great story!
I loved this book. It was a lovely romance. At first, I didn't like the book at all, but this quickly turned around. I thought that would be a love triangle but it wasn’t. It’s story about love and friendships. We meet two people who have secretly been in love with each other for years. Derek is popular guy in high school and he is secretly in love with Amelia. She is an ordinary girl and shy. It’s time to reveal their emotions. All characters h

I’m kind of irritated at myself for even reading this mediocre book. Everything about this story just irritated me. Seriously, that’s the only thing I can think to say about this book. It was irritating.

The main characters, Amelia and Derek were lame and the side characters weren’t anything special.
Apparently, Brook was Amelia’s (Lia, which I don’t get why every character has some nickname? Except Max) Best friend but it was like they didn’t know much about each other. Yeah, I get Brook has so

This is a short book which I enjoyed but also didn’t ...

Not gonna go too into detail but essentially it’s about Amelia and Derek. His friends used to bully her and he never told them to stop and then Max comes in and his alpha is out and he goes for her.

In a nutshell, Amelia was far too weak of a heroine. Derek decides he’s gonna go for her and she never made him work for it. It didn’t make sense.

If this wasn’t a bully romance, and it was like he always loved her but didn’t go for her and starte

This was such a good YA read. I was thinking from this description that this was going to involve a love triangle type thing but surprisingly that wasn't the case. I can't wait To read more about the secondary characters in this book. Especially Max! Can't wait to see what comes next in this series!

If I were in high school this would be going on I'm sure. I didn't like Derek for a long time. I think he was pretty aggressive. He trapped Lia a few times and kissed her. Awkward. Then he softens up.
Andrew is not so fleshed out but in team with Derek and for years teased (bullied) Amelia. At the end we understand Andrew a bit better (if that helps).

So it's YA. And pretty good.

Cute YA adult romance. I didn't like Derek in the beginning but he grew on me. I did love Max and cannot wait to read his book soon.

Anna B. Doe is new discovery to me and she surprised me good. I really enjoyed reading Lines.

Love triangle, mean girls, first love, sports and etc. It reminded me of my high school days and it was good to be back. Even for a little bit.

I loved Derek an Lia's story and other characters (most of all twins, but I am also very interested in Andrew and Brooke's story). Story was very cute, sweet and easy going and I recommend it for every one who is up for some light reading and high school fun.

Disclaimer: I received an Advance Reader Copy at no cost from the publisher/author. All opinions in my review are my own.

The first book in the Greyford High series really surprised me. It took me several chapters to get into the story but once I did I was a goner.

These characters are ones that really grew on me. I honestly didn't care for Derek at all in the beginning. He felt too controlling and aggressive when it came to Lia. He really grew on me though. By the end of the story, I adored him

I was offered and given an ARC by Anna B. Doe, however I was already 50% into the book before I recieved the arc or knew I was getting one. So, although I have an arc of Lines on my kindle - this review has nothing to do with the arc but everything to do with my honest thoughts and opinions.

Firstly I would like to mention how genuinely happy I was to go back to the genre I started reading. I am an active New Adult/Adult/Contemporary etc romance reader, and this book was so refreshing

Anna B. Doe is a new to me author and I will continue to read more in the future. When this book was released, I remember seeing a lot about it on social media, but hadn’t had the chance to read it. I don’t know what took me so long to start it but, I’m glad I finally got the chance to read it.

Amelia Campbell is not Derek King’s biggest fan. Growing up together he did not treat her well, he let his friends bully her and sat there silently and just observed it all. Then a new boy, Max, comes to

I love this type of story, it's sweet, it's geeky, it's popular jock,it's romantic and it's light on the bullying, but it also gives us both Derek and Amelia's POV, including good friendships.

Lines by Anna B. Doe is book one of the Greyford High series. It is full of high school drama, the misunderstanding of young love, witty banter and old grudges. Maybe the line between love and hate is thinner than anyone ever realized.

Derek King is used to having all the perks of popularity and wealth. He has no problem getting the attention of girls, but there is only one that has caught his interest. He’s made sure that no o
This novel really rocks your world. I loved the characters and the entire cast. Amelia and Derek are such a great couple together. They have insane chemistry. Their chemistry literally lights the pages on fire. The kissing scenes were the best parts of the novel. I liked how the kissing scenes made the romance so sweet and tender. One of the best parts about this book is the pacing. I liked how Derek and Amelia had a good amount of time to know each other. Their hate really did show and I liked ...more

This was a cute new adult, enemies to lovers romance.
Amelia is a shy girl that is picked on at school. It's bc of her nemesis Derek King - the guy that caused her heartache 10 years ago when they were in elementary school.
It's senior year and there's a new guy in town, Max. He's showing Amelia attention that no guy has ever shown and Derek doesn't like it.
This is a cute start to the GHS series.
Be warned, if you are looking for hot and steamy, this isn't the book for you.

Lines, is the first book in Anna B. Doe's brand new Greyford High series and I have got to say that I really enjoyed it! This was a relatively fast paced enemies to lovers story full of drama and lots of laughs. Amelia Cam and Derek's chemistry was evident right from the very beginning, but of course their different social circles kept them apart. No high school romance would be complete without a little bit of drama thrown in and let's just say

Books, hockey and Gilmore girls are my kind of things and they are all in this wonderful love story.
Amelia loves/hates him since they were kids. And he ignores her since that time until the first day of their senior year wgen she comes to school with another guy. Max only gave her a ride to school and since he is new in school he likes to be around her. Derek steps up and starts to talk to her and then they have a project together. He gets closer to her...

DNF. It was too YA for me. However I think if you enjoy that you should give it a try. :)
