Songwriter Corrine left the spotlights of LA when all it did was bring her heartache. She found her peaceful place away from the city where she writes her music and plays guitar at her own will. Her friend Max asks her to help out his client Christian with some new music for his up coming tour. She knows her stay in LA will be very short and over quickly and she will be back to her secluded life with her nephew Jonah, where she belongs.
When they meet, the sexual tension is almost immediate. Christian has to remind himself to back off and Corrine second guess' her rule to stay away from "his kind". Christian can't keep his hands off and Corrine decides one night would be all she needs. After all she will never to have see him again......Well we all know how that goes !
When they blur those lines that night, they basically could never let each other go, even though Corrine tries very hard to distance Christian from her heart. Christian seems to write his best when Corrine is in his life and Corrine can easily fall for this Christian, the one she sees outside of LA and the Christian that treats Jonah like his own.
What happens when his stardom becomes the one thing Corrine can not cope with? Will she be able to love him and keep her family and their quiet life safe from the spot light? Can Corrine be Christian's saving Grace?
This is a very sweet must read that introduces us to characters in the next two books in the series but is a stand alone story you will enjoy very much.
I can honestly say that I stopped reading halfway through and peaked at Ms. Joseph's author page to confirm my suspicions -- that Lita and Griffin and Donovan and Sierra get their own books. Oh thank the lord, b/c I was so intrigued and wanting more on both of those relationships. And that was how well she wrote not only the main characters voices, but the glimpses of the secondary characters as well. They weren't black and white straightforward secondary characters, but had depth too. Max intrigued me (and occasionally frustrated me). Jaxen surprised me. Corinne's Mom confused me and made my heart break a little. Brooke was epic. Heather cracked me up and was exactly the best friend I wanted for Corinne. And Jonah surprised me by taking my heart too.
There were so many mysteries throughout the book, but they rarely lasted very long before they were explained. I kind of liked that b/c I could play the guessing game, but the answers were revealed before my impatience got a hold of me. Makes for a satisfying read.
I don't even really know what it was about this book that just made it a step above the rest. I guess it was in the way the events and relationship unfolded. It didn't always go like I expected, but I was always right there with them. Corinne could be a frustrating character b/c she was so guarded, but in some ways that just made her more real. There wasn't some instant changing of heart and habits that she had become used to. And she would let hope catch her up sometimes, followed by letting her fear overtake her at others. So she was eminently human. At times I would catch myself feeling like this was a really good Harlequin book (and that's not an insult b/c I love those sometimes)....but it just had MORE. And it had a heroine that, while she frustrated me, I understood her.
I've already waxed lyrical about Christian, but really, he was the biggest surprise of all for me. He had rock star habits, and was definitely influenced heavily by his famous life. But he was so much more underneath. It was like I could finally understand some of those habits (like sleeping with random groupies) b/c he wasn't a HUGE dick about it. I mean, I don't know what I mean. I'm not saying he made those things right. But he made me care about him and see things just a touch differently. I thought his handling of the addiction was well placed and very real in the book. It didn't get lost in the storyline, but remained a battle throughout.
Anyways, my brain seems to have stopped the rambling train for now. I've read a few different books by this author (in both her pen names), usually collaborations, and I can honestly say she always brings something new and unexpected to the table. She takes the same ideas we've all seen and read before, but ends up making them more. It's really rather nice, you know?
Corinne is understandably cautious given her previous history, though sometimes it feels like she is a bit too wary, to the point that it feels like she might let a really good thing slip away. Christian will immediately capture your heart, especially with the struggle he faces every day battling his personal demons. And Jonah, so perceptive and wise for one so young...but his character adds just the right touch to the story.
All of the secondary characters add depth and are fully developed. My favorites are Griffin and Donovan, and I can't wait to read their stories!
The story moves along quite well and does a fantastic job of drawing you in-and keeping you engaged from page one thru to the end. A wonderful look at how love can help heal, Blurring the Lines is easily a 5-star read that I would recommend to those who love a good contemporary romance set in the music business world.
