High school senior Liv Evans has one rule: No attachments. She’s lost enough in her life and has vowed to do whatever it takes to make sure she never again feels the emptiness of losing someone she loves. Boys are a fun distraction, but a serious relationship is something she’d rather live without. Her determination for a future free of pain and heartbreak is put to the test when she meets–and quickly forms an unexpected bond–with Logan Tanner.

Logan has always been a free spirit, but ever since a life-changing event took place, which left him doubting the integrity of those who are closest to him, he’s taken that term to a whole new dangerous level. Learning the hard way that life is too short for worries or work–and that women can’t be trusted–Logan has exchanged steady work for street racing. When Liv walks into his world, everything he thought he knew about life and women is challenged.

In The Fine Line, Liv and Logan will discover if it’s possible for true love to have a future, or if history is destined to repeat itself.

Alicia’s Review:

Illegal street racing, hot guys, and tons of angst. All good components to a good book, right?

Olivia (Liv) Evans has a rule no relationships. She feels that way because of all the men that have always left her and her mom. Liv thinks if she doesn’t fall in love she won’t have to feel the emptiness of the inevitable (in her eyes) of them eventually leaving.

Logan Tanner (swoon) is the kind of guy that can get any girl he wants and he usually does until he sets his eyes on Liv. Liv’s phobia of commitment, means that for now Logan is only going to get as far as the friend zone with her. Meanwhile, Logan has a interesting hobby, illegal street racing, and he is the one to beat.

“There are no happy endings, Logan. Someone always gets hurt. It’s inevitable.” I fought the lump in my throat with an artificial smile. “The only way to prevent the hurt… is by not starting. It can’t end if it doesn’t start, right?”

I had a hard time connecting with the main character Liv. She had a phobia of commitment/attachments with men understandably so with all the guys that have come in and out of her and her mother’s life over the years. But come on! It was actually to the point of annoying with all the back and forth with Logan. Logan a guy that was used to having girls fall at his feet was being lead on (I felt) by Liv. I just kept thinking why is Logan hanging around and putting up with this? Liv does finally come around and let’s her walls come down. Finally, phew! If I wasn’t so frustrated by Liv I believe I could’ve enjoyed the overall story more.
