Gah, I loved this one! Friends to lovers + insecure manwh0re = My kinda angsty story. Sometimes I like torture myself and this book delivered on all counts, I couldn't put this book down.

Parker Blanton and Ben Olsen are roomies, and they have been best friends since they met in their first year of college. They are now 24 and never once have they considered taking their friendship to a different level. Parker is dating another man and Ben isn't looking for a serious commitment so their situation is perfect.

When Parker finds herself dumped and feeling fragile, she turns to the only man, other than her dad, that's always been there for her, Ben. That is where the lines are blurred and the consequences of which send their lives on a whole new path.

I don't know what it is about Lauren Layne, but she manages to make me smile and cry and everything in between, I had serious butterflies reading this book and to me that is the sign of a successful 5 Star read. The only reason I knocked off the half star was because of Parker and her dumb decisions, but I'll let that one slide because overall I thought she was a great heroine who really only wanted the best for Ben, as he did her.

This is not a unique story, but LL tells it well and I thoroughly enjoyed reading every word.

This is a standalone contemporary romance, told in dual POV.

I'm not sure I can call this book a disappointment as I read it only for brain candy, but I will say it didn't deliver. The plot was both thin and predictable. Really, how many books can one read about friends with benefits? The characters were pretty one dimensional and the writing was sloppy. There were some continuity issues that drove me crazy (is it that hard to remember that they are eating enchiladas, not lasagna, from one chapter to the next?). And the dual narrative didn't work here BECAUSE THERE WAS NO CHANGE IN VOICE! Ben and Parker sounded *exactly* alike and I kept having to go back and check to see who was telling the story in that chapter.

I can count on smart affable characters who engage in witty dialogue and have great chemistry with Lauren Layne’s books. Blurred Lines follows that description to a T. Not nearly the complicating emotional read as her Redemption Series but thoroughly loveable characters with just enough conflict to keep this friends to lovers story moving perfectly along.

I like how Ms. Layne’s female leads are as strong, self-sufficient and intelligent as the male leads. Ben Olsen and Parker Blanton are two of her best characters yet. Ben needed someone not an airhead to keep him challenged and well Parker, she did need Ben, too. I loved the very end and what it told you about Parker’s mother without having to spell it out.

Perfect story to read on one last summer trip to the beach. Really it’s a perfect story to read even if you aren’t going anywhere for one last summer trip.

Blurred Lines was a quick and easy read for me. I'm a sucker for friends to lovers and second chances romances.
Review at BadAndDirtyBooks

Parker and Ben have been friends for six years. Parker has been with her boyfriend for five years when he dumps her. She then decides she wants to experience and have casual sex, but it has to be with someone she's comfortable with. That leads her to her best friend Ben. They have sex with no strings for two weeks, before Parker's ex decides he wants her back. That's the end of Ben and Parker's sexual relationship. But they have both developed stronger feelings for each other and now in order to save their friendship, both of them keep quiet and try to return back to what was normal, but it's not that easy.

I really liked both Parker and Ben. Especially their friendship. They felt like real people and was very relatable. The banter and interplay between them was wonderful and at times hilarious and emotional. Even when their friendship seems over and done, they're always there for each other. That was just the core of the story and it was beautifully written.

I enjoyed reading this book even though the only obstacle, for Ben and Parker's reason for not being together, was miscommunication. I was engaged in the story and at times laughed out loud. It was great, but I didn't love it.

Very cute story about Ben and Parker who have been best friends for six years. Parker has been with Lance for 5 years and Ben just sleeps with who ever he is attracted to. Parker gets dumped by Lance and she realizes that all the men she meets do not interest her. She asks Ben to be friends with benefits. They realize that they like the new arrangement but they both realize they want more but they do not talk about it. Parker then decides to give Lance another chance knowing she does not want to me with him. Ben and Parker do not want their relationship to suffer but it does because they are not being honest about their feelings.

I absolutely loved this book and storyline, it was exceptional!!
I read a lot of romance stories but I can honestly say that this has to be one of the most heartwarming books that I have read in a very long time.
The romance was beautifully written and the characters were so real I could almost feel them and their emotions. I enjoyed how this author used both characters perspectives throughout the book and even included an epilogue to tie up the storyline. Absolutely amazing, five plus star rating for this book.
