Review: Out of Line

Out of Line
Out of Line by Jen McLaughlin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The last book of the year [2016] and first book of the year [2017].

A really good sold four-star New Adult romance. It was a definite rated-R movie, not bordering any NC-17 territories.

Carrie is a college freshman at a university in San Diego, CA. She also happens to be a Senator’s daughter. And this Senator is over-protective of his little girl, sending security guards after her at every turn.

Finn just so happens to be the man groomed/chosen/hand-picked for the position. As a twenty-three year old Marine, he has the muscle and brawn to keep Carrie safe.

He also falls for her, which goes against everything her father made him promise not to do, even having him sign contracts saying he’d keep away. And that’s the problem. He wants to break all those rules. Because he falls for Carrie. Hard. And she falls for him. Even harder.

The story had those tensions…Can we? Should we? But I love you. But we can’t. Oh, yeah, and there’s this guy…for lack of a better term, Cody…Cory? Something like that. Perfect type of high drama in a romance. Perfect amount of sweet to balance that out. Because when it was good between them, it wasn’t just sex. It was doing things like surfing and helping the homeless…and it was great.

I would even venture to say this one could be a stand-alone as it wraps up nicely. But once you’re in, you can’t get out without knowing the rest. As far as endings go, it was perfect yet worrisome yet…I sort of cheated and looked for the next book to read the description…and I’m so….leaving it blank as not to spoil anything…and I have that one on my TBR list for sure. Book three as well.

Overall, a good story. Staring some Tom-Welling-inspired (Smallville on the WB) thoughts of Finn.
