InkSlinger PR Blog Tour + Review + Giveaway: Blurred Lines by Jen McLaughlin

Blurred Lines
Out of Line #5
by Jen Mclaughlin
Releasing Jan 2015

Once burned... 

Finding my fiancée naked on my couch might’ve been a good thing, if her ex-boyfriend hadn’t been with her. For the past eight years I’ve been a witness to the power of true love, but after getting burned I’d decided there wasn’t any hope for me finding it for myself. Until I met Noelle Brandt in a hotel bar. Maybe it wasn’t the most romantic meeting, but the moment I met her I knew I had to have her. The more I learn about her, the more I know I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her.

Twice shy...

I’d already found the love of my life, but I’d lost that love forever. And I’d been lost ever since. But one night a wounded man makes all of that go away. He makes me laugh, live, and feel alive. When he tells me he has no intention of letting me go, I finally begin to believe in the power of true love again.  That is, until I find out who he really is…and by then, it’s far too late to correct the mistakes we’ve already made. By the time we both know the truth, the lines have already been blurred beyond recognition.

My Thoughts:

What an amazing roller coaster that grabs you from page one to the last. Seriously, I absolutely loved Blurred Lines. If sleep wasn't an issue, I would have spent all night with Riley. This story was absolutely amazing and probably my favorite in Out of Line series. So, be prepared to hear me say how much I LOVED this story and why. 

Love the start of the book where Riley catches his fiancée sleeping with her ex. He's calm through the whole thing, while I'm getting riled up and wanting to throat punch Sarah. She definitely deserved a throat punch with the crap she was saying. Still gets me upset. Anyway, poor Riley feeling down in the dumps and starting to believe that he's never going to find love or it's just not in the cards. Personally, I would have taken him in. Riley's a great guy, but a tad bit serious. 

Then we have Noelle, who is a widower, writer, and a daughter of not so great parents. Lets focus on the writer part, because she enjoys what she does. I think one of my favorite lines of hers was:

"I've been called killer of hopes and dreams once or twice when I didn't end my books the way readers wanted."
I think as readers feel that way, so that made me chuckle. However, Noelle is super sweet and adorable. Not only that she's a bit unsure of herself, which makes her lovable.

Basically, the relationship between Riley and Noelle is super fast, some may believe it's unrealistic. Hey, I'm in the camp anything is possible. Anyway, Blurred Lines had my emotions all over the place. At times I could feel the tears trying to make there way out, and other times I was dying. Seriously dying, because Riley could be so clueless. One of my favorite parts after their non-sex sex (by the way super hot), he leaves money with no explanation. The first thing that popped into my mind, "Oh my god, he's going to make her feel like a hooker." Good thing Noelle had a best friend to help her through the awkward situation. Plus, the story is filled with some many great lines that I was highlighting like crazy. I truly loved the story, because it was a wild ride. Jen was able to get me to fall in love with these two. They were so damn adorable together. I'm glad Riley was able to get his head out his ass before he lost something so precious as Noelle. So, if you want to melt for a guy, Riley is your man. If you want a fast pace read that might keep you up all night, here you go. Blurred Lines was absolutely amazing in my books. It's definitely a reread kind of book. However, that is just my opinion.
