The Fine Line - Alicia Kobishop

Synopsis: 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.


For some reason, the beacon of street racing just called out to me from this book. I didn't know this was a thing I liked to read about until Katie McGarry came along, but apparently street racing is an awesome angle. It was the racing that brought me in, but it was the crazy relationship that made me stay.

I've decided that the romances I love are weirdly the ones where I get so frustrated that I feel the need to step into the book and talk some sense into the characters. Which is exactly what Liv and Logan did to me. Liv was just so stubbornly set in her ways that I just wanted to shake her. The point where she kind of starts fighting herself, I just got so wrapped up in Logan's efforts to win her over and get her to go with her feelings. The thing is, I'm very much with Liv - in terms of pessimism about love - but there's a point where you have to give in when it comes along and she took a lot longer to figure that out than most do. So I found myself wrapped up in Logan's pursuit and I just couldn't wait to see what it took for them to finally find their way to one another.

I really wish the street racing had been a larger part of the story. It makes an appearance at the beginning, very briefly in the middle and then the end. It kind of gets dropped while the focus goes to developing Liv and Logan's relationship and then it's picked back up once their personal drama stops. I just wanted more. There's a lot that goes down near the end that would have so much more impact if it had been developed throughout the entire book.

I really enjoyed this new adult. It was a quick read and it was definitely easy to get wrapped up in. Logan was a hero worth loving, even if Liv drove me crazy. If you're into character driven books that get you all tangled in their emotions, this is a great one for you.
