The Line Between - Tamsyn Bester

Kennedy Monroe and Dane Winters have known each other since they were children. Their families have an on-going feud that the current generation really don't know much about or how it got started. All they know is that they were raised to hate each other. So things don't come easy for Kennedy as she not only struggled with normal things every girl goes through growing up but also all of the pranks and rumors that Dane spreads about her. She hates every moment of growing up with him around and it is only made worse when a tragedy strikes both families simultaneously, causing the hatred to deepen and the pain to increase.

Kennedy is a character that starts out weak and then grows and becomes a little stronger. It was good to see her expand but some of the scenes had me wondering if they would happen in reality based on the circumstances we read about in the book. Some of them seem plausible, like her standing up for herself finally, but others just didn't have me fully believing. Dane is a complete douche to Kennedy and the things that he has said and done, not to mention the things while growing up, should have made Kennedy hate him and never give him a second thought. But the drama kicks in and both Kennedy and Dane find themselves falling for each other yet unable to commit as they know their family history is just too twisted to allow them to be together.

Overall, this is a very steamy read filled with drama, lust, love, hate, and loss. It was a highly emotional read that had me engaged and wanting to know what would happen next. I did find myself feeling connected to the characters one moment and totally disinterested the next. One minute the characters are fighting and the next they are in bed together. One moment there is a sweet scene and just when we think that things will work out, they are back to fighting. It just wasn't a healthy dynamic with them knowing what they wanted and then changing their minds on the next page.

Definitely an 18+ only read due to mature sexual content.

I received a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Beneath Your Beautiful
Beneath Your Beautiful - Tamsyn Bester Beneath Your Beautiful - Tamsyn Bester I like how the story started, it made me think it's going to be right up my alley of reads. The way Huntley's aunt and uncle took her in their care is touching and endearing. Poor girl for having to go through those terrible things. I also like Demi and Brody despite what they did. They trully are good friends.I think what started to make me lose interest is Grayson's hot and cold behavior. He's acting like a girl. The last straw is when they finally got together, same old "how can you love me I'm broken" drama. Sad to see it turn out to be one of those books with a generic plot. One last thing, I'm a bit distracted with the cover. It's just not how I imagined them.Overall a good debut. I'm just looking for something new.

Beneath Your Beautiful - Tamsyn Bester Beneath Your Beautiful - Tamsyn Bester I kinda like this book... Huntley and Grayson both are hunted by demons of their past... two beautiful people who was hurt and afraid to trust... Till they found and healed each other. I love Huntley, she's strong and goes for what she wants and that is Grayson... and Grayson is absolutely gorgeous and very protective of her. There is romance, action and a little bit of suspense... The only thing I didn't like was the ending, a tad bit predictable... and there's a question about what happened to her ex bff who got pregnant with her ex bf? And was her mom murdered? What happened there?
