Her desire is strong.
There will be risk.
She could lose everything.

Chloe McCarthy has the perfect friends with benefits arrangement. But when she gets dumped for someone else, it triggers heartbreaking memories.

With the crushing reminder that she's all alone, she plummets toward rock bottom. Until she runs into the one guy who can always make her smile.

Matt Langston--mechanic by day, bouncer by night--lives a drama free life and wants to keep it that way. Which is why he needs to keep Chloe at arm's length.

Yet, with every rendezvous, another layer is peeled away from her rough fa├žade, leaving him intrigued to learn more. She's not the woman she portrays herself to be. His curiosity wins against his better judgment and he can't stay away.

As their friendship deepens, old wounds begin to heal. Their connection is unmistakable. Their mutual desire, intense. But the last thing either of them needs is to re-live disastrous mistakes by giving in to their growing attraction for each other.

Before they ever have a chance to define what's happening between them, Matt gets the job offer of a lifetime. The only problem? He'd have to leave town.

He's only got one week to decide between his dream career and the woman he can't get out of his thoughts.

The Fragile Line Series is a spin-off to The Fine Line. Reading The Fine Line first is not necessary, but please note, this series contains spoilers to The Fine Line.

MY REVIEW

This is Chloe and Matt’s story and I wasn’t sure what to expect. Chloe was the ‘villain’ from The Fine Line and I already disliked her. I couldn’t help it and I think that was the author’s goal. So how the heck was it possible to ever like her? Could she ever be redeemed? I’ve got to say, the author definitely made me have a change of heart. So success!

Chloe was once a regular girl. Great parents, a loving sister, a typical teenage life. Until tragedy strikes and she loses her grip on the normal life. Being raised by her adoring sister, she still gets to experience a bit of normal and falls in love. Soon after her heart’s broken and to keep herself safe from future pain she creates what she believes to be an invisible and impenetrable forcefield around her heart. She comes off cold, callous, promiscuous, frivolous, immature and a bit obsessive, but thankfully Matt sees beyond all of that to the broken girl hidden inside.

In the end, I kinda liked Chloe and absolutely loved Matt. He was kind, considerate, generous, thoughtful, attentive, talented, and one sexy as all heck alpha. It takes great talent to get a reader to change their minds about a character, so kudos to Alicia Kobishop for achieving the almost impossible.
