[Review] The Fine Line ~ Alicia Kobishop

High school senior Liv Evans has one rule: No attachments. She’s lost enough in her life and has vowed to do whatever it takes to make sure she never again feels the emptiness of losing someone she loves. Boys are a fun distraction, but a serious relationship is something she’d rather live without. Her determination for a future free of pain and heartbreak is put to the test when she meets–and quickly forms an unexpected bond–with Logan Tanner.

Logan has always been a free spirit, but ever since a life-changing event took place, which left him doubting the integrity of those who are closest to him, he’s taken that term to a whole new dangerous level. Learning the hard way that life is too short for worries or work–and that women can’t be trusted–Logan has exchanged steady work for street racing. When Liv walks into his world, everything he thought he knew about life and women is challenged.

In The Fine Line, Liv and Logan will discover if it’s possible for true love to have a future, or if history is destined to repeat itself.

Tif's Review (Our new reviewer, more on her later)

The Fine Line by Alicia Kobishop was given to me in exchange for an honest review.

Liv, the main protagonist of this story, is your typical sad girl. She's got the whole everyone-you-love-leaves-you mentality going on. Then comes the hunk of this story..Logan Tanner. All smooth moves and nice body. He's a drag racer and a total flirt, what more can you ask for? At first glance, he's a bad boy but really (like every bad boy in a book) he's all soft inside.

The rest of the story just consists of Liv being insecure and Logan always having issues and blah blah blah. This is where it got a bit annoying for me when Liv would be all, "I LOVE YOU LOGAN!" To, "DON'T TOUCH ME!!!!" In 5 seconds flat. It got pretty annoying actually.

The ending was where a little action picked up. There was a bad guy and a gun. You know the rest of the story. Then the author just HAD to put in the cliché of all clichés. Ugh. (Don't worry there's no baby)

This book is the perfect example of an NA novel. Just the right amount of steam, heart-wrenching drama, and hunky boys! I wouldn't say that it's a 'unique' read though. Everything about the book screamed predictable, but in a good way.

There was not enough meat in this story for me to totally fall in love with it. Yes, I did get a bit teary a couple times, but doesn't every girl when it comes to these sappy stories?!

All in all, The Fine Line was an okay read. Not exactly lust worthy, but it was still nice.
Rating: 3.5 stars
(Can't think anymore, mind's on vacation)
