Sunny Shelly’s Review: Crossing The Line, by Jessica Prince

Title: Crossing The Line
Author: Jessica Prince
Series: Whitecap

Contemporary Romance; Small Town Romance; Single Mom Romance

Some lines are meant to be crossed.

Trent Montgomery knew all about loyalty and responsibility. Tracking down his friend’s long-lost sister and making sure she was safe was just another job, a favor from someone he cared about. He wasn’t supposed to get attached. But when he started to fall for the woman who had been hiding from the world, things got a lot more complicated than he ever expected.

Cheyanne Knightly knew all about living in fear. The life she’d made for her and her daughter was as stable as a house of cards. One stiff breeze could send her whole world crumbling. But when a new guy blew into her small town, stirring up Whitecap’s rumor mill, she found herself drawn to him in a way she never expected.

Lies were told. Secrets were uncovered. Lines were crossed. When the truth finally came out, Trent had to find a way to protect the woman who stole his heart while he tried to earn her trust back.

**The Whitecap series is a brand new series of interconnected, standalone, small town romances.**

“Monica said the dude was ogling you like you were a three-course meal and he hadn’t eaten in a month.”

“Like I said, she exaggerated.”

Right?

Nope, I silently screamed to myself. I wasn’t going to start questioning it because it didn’t matter. Not at all.

She looked at me, her expression pinched with skepticism. “Was she also exaggerating when she said she thought you’d stroked out for a minute and lost the power of speech when he came up and introduced himself to you?”

I snorted and took a gulp of my margarita, smiling as I admitted, “No, she might have been spot-on with that one.”

Luna’s head fell back on a laugh. “At least you’re willing to own it.”

“It’s not my fault! There isn’t a woman on the planet who could help it,” I exclaimed. “I mean, the dude had dimples, for Christ’s sake. Dimples.”

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Crossing The Line kicks off a new series from Jessica Prince, and is a spinoff of the Hope Valley series. In the last HV book, Charlotte wanted to find her twin sister, Cheyanne, whom she’d been separated from since they were small girls. So now, Alpha Omega Securities agent Trent has tracked down Cheyanne at a small town in Oregon, where she’s hiding out from her abusive ex and raising her young daughter on her own, having changed her name to Sawyer.

I loved how natural the relationship was between Cheyanne and Trent! And Renee was absolutely adorable! They gelled together seamlessly as an instafamily, which scared both Cheyanne and Trent terribly. He knew he was falling from her, but he was hiding this huge secret that he knew who she was in her past life and had, in fact, tracked her down. Meanwhile, Cheyanne felt guilty that she couldn’t tell Trent who she really was since she was afraid for her life and safety.

Of course, it all comes to a head, and Cheyanne feels terribly betrayed. But with some prodding from her sister and the family she’s built in Whitecap, she realizes that Trent wasn’t totally wrong in his reasons for not telling her who he was from the get-go.

Crossing The Line is a beautiful starting over romance, with steam and sass, and lots of sweet and tender moments. I loved all the crazy characters we got to meet in Whitecap, and just like the Hope Valley and Redemption folks, I can’t wait to get to know them better!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.

Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.

In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.

Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.
