The Fine Line was a brilliant read that was offered to me by the author for an honest review.
I have never come across a book which centers on an illegal car racer and a girl truly set against falling in love so this was new territory for me.
What worked for me: *A refreshing plot line that was different from others.
*Great characters. Especially Logan. Hehe. ;)
*The slow pacing of Olivia and Logan’s relationship developing from friends becoming more. YES!! No fast insta-romance!! *fist pumps in the air!*
What didn’t: *Olivia’s attitude!! It was kind judgmental at times and gave me whiplash. First she's all hot and getting smitten over Logan and then all of a sudden it's like “I don’t want a relationship with you or anyone.” Got me pretty darn frustrated at times! Grr!!
The seeing similar references: *The car racing element reminded me of the Fast and the Furious movies.
*And then Olivia’s not looking for love and lack of trust in men type of precedents brought me to glimpses of Abby Abermathy from Jamie McGuire’s A Beautiful Disaster.
OTHERWISE, everything from the story line and characters had no similar comparisons and was its own.
SO, MY VERDICT?: I definitively recommend!
The Fine Line was adrenaline filled, fun, and a fast-paced romance with a lot of push and pull. I will admit, at times, Olivia made me want to kick her to the curb and keep Logan to myself but in the end I got it, or her and her issues, if you will.
A very impressive debut from Alicia Kobishop!
