TITLE: CROSSING THE LINE (KISMET SERIES BOOK 1)
AUTHOR: SAMANTHA LONG
RELEASE: AUG 31, 2015
Victoria doesn't have time for love after a bitter divorce. She's too busy. Her twin daughters are approaching puberty and her interior design business is expanding. So when Nick enters her life, she has to remember why she's too busy for a little lust. Which is difficult considering he's the contractor hired to redo her office. Besides, his tattoos and MMA past make him a poor candidate for a woman who's trying to level out her life. Nick thinks Victoria's hot but doesn't want to get involved with a woman who has kids, much less one that's been hurt by a man. Too much baggage. He's sworn off relationships, tending to stick with one-night stands. Victoria is a client, one he doesn't want to cross the line with, but the more he's near her, the quicker his resolve weakens.
This book was wonderful and I loved it. I can’t wait to read the next one in the series. Victoria is in the process of learning to live her life once again. A year ago she got a divorce. She is trying to help her twin daughter Lucina and Helena deal with the divorce. Lucina is dealing with it better than Helena. Helena is a daddy’s girl and doesn’t see her father for who he really is. Victoria is finally ready to have an actual office for her business instead of working out of her home. She has worked so hard to get where she is and her life is about to change once again. Her father helped her buy the space she is going to use for her office but is needs a serious over haul. Her father told her knows someone and has set up a meeting. She is totally taken by surprise when Nick shows up. She was expecting someone her father’s age not someone her age who is a total hottie. Their parents have decided to play match maker. Victoria is attracted to Nick however she thinks she needs to focus on her work and her daughters right now not a man. Nick shares this attraction however his motto is no kids and no being tied down. However he can’t seem to get Victoria out of his head. How long will they be able to fight their attraction to each other? Victoria is still getting over her divorce. She thought she would they would be married forever but instead Roger needed to find himself without her or their children. Nick has worries that stem from his own childhood. Both Nick and Victoria grow and change so much throughout this book. Victoria’s sisters Halle and Addie are great characters and I can’t wait to read more about them in the coming books. Addie has so much fire in her; Halle is another story and has her own things she is going through. All the characters in this book are great. This book was emotional at times and felt for Victoria’s twins and what they were dealing with. They are almost teenagers plus they are dealing with their parent’s divorce. I can’t say enough about the book but I don’t want to give too much away. This is the first book I have read by Samantha long but I look forward to reading more by her in the future.
