The Fine Line by Alicia Kobishop @AliciaKobishop #review #sale
If you are a New Adult fan this is for you. The main character is Liv (Olivia) and she is hardened. She has lost her Dad and it seems every man she loves just leaves. That being said is one of the reasons why I LOVED the book. The author adds characters that have touched Olivia. She has the luck to not only meet but love some of her Mothers boyfriends. I for one have rarely seen this side of a character written in a book. So it goes to show you that not every man is an abuser or a molester. I liked how she was glad to have Kevin. Then he is killed by a drunk driver. The last one was Adam, she loved him. He was younger than her mother and when her mother wouldn't marry him he left. I felt so bad that she let her guard down, felt love, felt compassion and then was alone again.
She slowly forma a friendship with Logan. The story with him is different, he is an illegal street racer. I have not read any story about that, so it was something fresh and new for me. There are a few sub characters, like Mel who is her best girlfriend. Mel is involved with a guy that Liv adores, and they also get "girl" time. Olivia is a hard worker, goes to school and doesn't do drugs. Another something so refreshing.
This is a debut, so when you start out with a great book it only gets better. There is a lot to love about the writing style, characters and angst. There ia a lot of angst. I think the author did the waves of emotions well. There is a low that is just the right amount of anger, then the right amount of love. I wish for a lot of success on this book. I want more from the author!
