Review Tour: Pushing The Line

Pushing the Line
The Line Series Book Four
By: Kimberly Kincaid

Free-spirited artist Harper McGee is happy to go wherever the wind takes her…until her flight pattern sends her back to Brentsville, New York for her beloved grandmother funeral. Harper’s grief turns to shock, however, when she discovers her grandmother has named her sole proprietor of her candy shop, Luscious. But she has no intention of being anchored to one place, and anyway, she doesn’t know the first thing about running a kitchen or a business. Selling Luscious is the only viable option— until the shop catches fire due to old wiring. Fixing the damage requires major work, and if Harper wants to put it on the market, she needs major help.
Thrill-seeking firefighter Aaron Fisher has never walked away from a challenge or a friend. So when a fellow firefighter is hurt on a call and can’t complete a side job for his contracting company, Aaron’s quick to jump in. He’s done plenty of fix ‘er ups for his buddy in the past, and despite his silver spoon upbringing and his no-holds-barred attitude, swinging a hammer suits Aaron just fine. That is, until he discovers the client is the same impetuous woman he forcibly dragged from the flames of Brentsville’s local candy shop.
The more time Harper and Aaron spend at Luscious, the hotter their attraction burns, daring them both to shed their tough outer layers to reveal the tender desires beneath. But when a buyer makes Harper the offer of a lifetime, she must choose between roots and wings. Can two people who live in the moment learn to see past the moment, or will Aaron and Harper always live their lives pushing the line?

Review Rating: 4 LIGHTNING BOLTS

Review: Pushing the Line is a fast paced, jam packed emotional read. One of the biggest things I enjoy about Ms. Kincaid's work is that it's not easy to get to know characters on an in depth level with novellas. There's just not always enough time, but this author has a FANTASTIC ability to draw the reader in and make us feel like we're the character's best friend or something. It's great. This is what I look for in a story- the connection and I definitely get it here. 

Harper is a free bird. I mean, she goes wherever, lives her life. But a sudden death changes things and now it's time she just might see the light. The light of a possible love, that is. She knows nothing about owning a business, and she struggles with the idea of selling her grandmother's shop. But as an artist, what else is she to do?

Fall in love, perhaps?

Let's get into Aaron. What a hottie, and a fireman, too? Yup. You sold me. He's stubborn, strong willed and very eager to help. Stubborn against stubborn? Oh, it's ON!  

Absolutely enjoyed Pushing The Line. It's a quick, fun read. Oh, and hey, we get to see a little bit of some past characters, just sayin' 

Grab this one, and all of the novellas in this series, I bet you'll devour them. Fun reads with varying emotions and characters you'll love.
