As a reader she wants us to believe that Lila has been written Lincoln for 2 yrs but in Pushing the Limits not once was this brought up so it made reading this a little unbelievable.
My first problem with Crossing the Line was Lila and Lincoln's fight. It has to be one of the dumbest ones I've read. Lila takes what happened way too personally and blows it out of proportion. She acts like it's the end of the world, or like Lincoln ruined her life when it has nothing to do with her. My second problem was Lila. I know it's not my place to judge someone else's fears, but Lila's fear of being home alone is beyond ridiculous. I get scared too, but I deal with it. Her mom even had to leave her brightly colored post-its all over the house to remind Lila to do the littlest things because at 18, she's never been home alone...ever. That is hard to believe. Her fear may have felt more believable if we had actually gotten to know her better, and seen that this fear is based on something. I just didn't know her well enough to care.
The "plot" of Crossing the Line was also problematic.Read more ›
Lincoln's family is a mess, it has been for a while now and he's reached the breaking point. Screwing up things with Lila, sends him running to her and leaving everything behind. There has to be a way to earn her forgiveness.
When Lila and Lincoln meet they do more than forgive each other. In the course of a few hours they realize what they have is so much bigger than they ever imagined. Lila's belief in him pushes Lincoln to try and do better in his life, to fix his mess. And fix it he will because Lila is waiting on the other side. In turn, Lincoln is more than willing to be Lila's pillar whenever her resolve wavers--and it wavers often. He's the one to remind her of her strength and courage when she thinks she has none. These two couldn't be more perfect for each other!
What I love about McGarry's work is that in just a few paragraphs the characters come alive. They pop off the page with their...their realness. I can't even describe it! lol They are flawed, brutally honest, beautiful in their vulnerability, and the relationships they make with others are soul deep. I wish I'd had these books during my teen years, because these coming of age stories are exceptional.
I urge you to pick up this little novella! Crossing the Line is the perfect little treat to tide us over until we can get out hands on Dare You To, and I know that one's going to be as life-altering as the first.
So, Lincoln. Why is it that Lila has been writing to Lincoln since Aires died, and yet, we never heard mention of him at all in Pushing the Limits? How does that happen. I wish I would have gotten to see glimpses of him in the previous book, and I hope in the future books, we get to get to see more of him. Because, based on how he is written, he sounds like a real hottie. Talk, dark and muscular.
And on that note, why are teen guys so well muscled? Has anyone thought of that? Some of our favorite YA novels have guys in them described as well muscled and hot abs and things like that. None of the guys I went to high school with looked anything like that... Just saying.
Considering how little page real estate there was for Lincoln, I love the way the character was developed. The relationship between Lincoln and Lila develops almost naturally and by the end of the story, it felt like they had always been together and they were just meant to be. I really hope that the road blocks in their lives resolve and that they end up together. Further, I hope I get to find out.
If you have read the rest of this series and are not so patiently waiting for TMO to come out, and haven't read Crossing the Line, pick it up and give it a read. It will go far too fast, but for that little while, you will feel connected again.

Too short to get invested in the characters or their story. Don't spend money on it; but I think you can get it free when you buy "Take Me On."Published 6 months ago by Clio Reads
This definitely had a filler feel to it. While I liked Lila a lot from book 1, she lost the fire in this one and I didn't connect with her love interest at all. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Lori Palle
