Not much I can say about this book after Charlie's review, which was spot on!! I might add, however, that I did get to the point that I wanted to strangle both Rachel and Ali for their total lack of communication that rendered this reader incredulous as to their stupidity at times! Other than that, I really enjoyed this story and look forward to more by this author.

Runner Rachel Ryder's intense training has paid off. She's never been in better shape and she's one of the favorites to win the British Mountain Championships. Except that now she's had an accident and broken her arm. The accident in turn is the cause of a great distraction. She meets a beautiful and alluring doctor, Alison.

Rachel and Ali both feel an immediate attraction between them. But both women have been badly hurt in the past. Plus, Ali can't ethically date a patient. Rachel can't afford to focus on anything other than her running either. She has a race to win and a broken arm or an attractive doctor can't be allowed to interfere. So, starting anything with Ali is out of the question. The two women agree to be friends, which proves very hard and a cat and mouse game begins.

Unfortunately right at this time, Rachel's conniving, cheating ex girlfriend, Helen, returns to the scene. She wants Rachel back and will stop at nothing to get her own way.

What will Rachel do? Will she relent and choose Helen? Will she choose Ali? Or will she push aside both women and pour all her energies in to winning her race?

This book is a page turner from the first page right through to the last page. There are so many twists and turns along the way, it's like being on a roller coaster.

The actual story is three stories rolled into one. First we read about Rachel and her racing. Although I'm not a sports fan, I really enjoyed all the excitement and thrill of the race. I found myself cheering Rachel on and shared in her triumphs and disappointments. Second we have the up and down, on and off romance. Which is both frustrating and humorous in parts. Last but by no means least, there is Rachel's work environment and her friendship with her work colleague, Mel.

Although it did keep my interest, as the story progressed I found that I was more and more annoyed by the characters. How is it that two educated, intelligent, professional women are completely unable to communicate effectively? How can the main character contemplate an issue between her and her potential love interest for several days, then not bother to bring it up the next time they meet? The games they played with each other were juvenile and aggravating. While I'm not a runner, I did enjoy that aspect of the story. It was well written and allowed me to truly understand what goes through a persons mind while competing in this manner. However, the romance fizzled. I expected not just better behavior, but better communication from such accomplished women.

When I saw this for free last year I downloaded it to my Kindle app and then kind of forgot about it. The other day I remembered I had it and began reading and, wow, what a nice surprise!

Crossing The Line is not only well-written, it has its own unique feel (not just because it has such delightful British flavor) and (in another nice surprise) doesn't follow the normal lesfic formula.

There are lots of kinks that thwart any attempts at a successful relationship in the beginning (lack of trust on both women's parts, other people intentionally and unintentionally getting in the way, the unexpected stuff that life throws at us all the time) and that adds to the reality that makes Crossing The Line so refreshing. Not only that...the racing background often comes to the forefront of the book's plot and makes for great and exciting pacing, something that I wasn't expecting since I've never found running to be terribly exciting.

So often "free" books (Crossing The Line now has a cost of $3.95) turn out to be duds. That is not the case with Toni James' wonderful novel. I would gladly pay for it!

Lesbian Fiction is not my usual taste in books, however being a runner I was interested to come across this book and I am so glad I did.The book is fab even for non runners it keeps you gripped with the trials and tribulations of the main characters. So much so I had to limit myself to 4 pages a night as I didnt want to finish it. Definitely a book that makes you giggle and cringe at the same time with all the goings on. Dont take my word for it have a read and you wont be disappointed.

This is one of the stories that can keep you glued to the book. I found hard to put it down. Story reflects life of regular person with all the up and downs. The plot, characters, dialogue, is perfect and truly I would not change a thing about it. I just wish there was more to end, as what happened when she opened the door.... But it does not take out of the book; it's only what I would want to have as end.

The punctuation was a bit rough. I have never in my life seen so many ellipses. It was seriously overkill. But all in all It was a pretty good romance about trying to balance work, hobbies, a new love, and the ex that won't quit.
