Overview

In CROSSING LINES, the world's best-stocked toy drawer can only take a gal so far. Bored with her current assortment of vibrating, plastic pieces, building inspector Sam Wallace decides to add a new sex toy to her collection: Kevin Mazze. The irresistible Italian is happy to help her live out her long-held sexual fantasies, while also insinuating himself into her life and winning the affection of her five-year old daughter. But just as Sam starts to trust Kevin with her heart, as well as her body, she learns he's committed an unforgivable sin.

He's spent his life always doing the right things and making those around him happy, even if it means maintaining a relationship long after it's reached its expiration date. When he meets the woman of his dreams, he finds himself making bad choices in the name of good and crossing lines he never thought he would... while praying she never learns of the secret he's been hiding.

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews - Slick Reads
As much as I liked the characters in books one and two [Heat Wave series], I absolutely adore the characters in Crossing Lines and holy hell this woman wrote one hell of a ménage scene where only two people were present.
Delighted Reader - Rhonda D
The sex scenes in this book were amazing. The author wrote a menage scene with two people that was OMG HOT! She made it seem like three people where there even to the reader. I felt Sam's panic when she thought someone unknown was seeing her that exposed. I love when an author can draw you so far into a book that you feel everything the character is feeling and sometimes more. It makes the story so much more real.

Crossing Lines 4.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 13 reviews.

## I don't understand these great reviews. The hero is a CHEATER for Pete's sake. He hooks up (sleeps with and more) with the heroine while still in a long term relationship. Once a cheater, always a cheater. And we are to believe that this heroine who found her ex in bed with his secretary magically forgives him and trusts him not to do it again. He was let off the hook way too easily, even if his other girlfriend said they were never really right for each other. Ugh. Fidelity is everything.

Kevin Mazze is introduced in book one, Saving Me, as Erik Monteague's long time friend. As I read Saving Me, I was curious about both Kevin and Steve, another friend of theirs. I was delighted when I realized book three in this series, Crossing Lines, would be Kevin's story. Kevin, a successful land developer, is under stress with problems with his current building site. When the building inspector Samantha Wallace comes for an inspection, Kevin finds himself attracted to Samantha, but the problem is he is currently in an on-off relationship with Lizbeth. While knowing that he wants to break things off for good with Lizbeth, she is in the midst of planning her sister's wedding to his friend and foreman Wade. While Lizbeth seems to be wanting to make more of a serious commitment to Kevin, he finds himself becoming involved with Samantha - without breaking it off with Lizbeth first. Samantha Wallace, a single mom and building inspector, has just relocated two months earlier trying to leave her ex-husband and his cheating ways in the past. When she meets Kevin, she is instantly attracted to him. Her toy drawer helps her entertain these lustful thoughts. Although she only wants Kevin for a fling, she finds herself becoming more involved.  When Kevin and Lizbeth's relationship comes to light will there be a chance for Kevin and Samantha? As I said before, when I read Saving Me, Kevin intrigued me. There was just something about him. While I don't condone cheating, I did feel like Kevin was a genuinely good guy. He was making himself miserable and piling on the stress by going out of his way to make everyone happy - except for himself. He knew Lizbeth wasn't the one for him, but tried to think of her feelings and wait until after the wedding before hurting her. Besides being a genuine guy, Kevin is handsome, intelligent, and a hard worker. He cares about his friends, as shown in Saving Me and this book.  Samantha has problems she is dealing with on her own. Her ex-husband screwed with her head and her confidence and months later his words still ring in her mind. She's also hesitant to introduce her daughter to Kevin thinking that it may not work between them and she doesn't want to see her daughter get attached. As a single mom myself, I can totally relate to this and thought Samantha's cautiousness was a good mom trait.  Alannah creates ideal men who us women readers love to love. While somewhat flawed or scarred in some way, Alannah's talent in creating characters that readers love to see get their happily ever after is quite amazing. There hasn't been one character I haven't enjoyed and I love all of Alannah's male leads. While I genuinely enjoyed and recommend Saving Me and Last Call, Crossing Lines is my favorite book yet!

Kevin Mazze has finally met his match and right now she is blocking him from opening his new building. Sam Wallace may be new in town, but she is not new to the world of construction. Even though she can’t legally permit him to open the building now, she is willing to try and help him find an alternative water line plan that would allow his business to open. Sam can try all she wants to deny her physical attraction to Kevin, but after one ill-fated mishap at the boardwalk with her daughter, Michaela, Kevin comes to her rescue and she decides to give-up and indulge in a few fantasies. Kevin has a few secrets of his own, but he knows that he is attracted to this headstrong, single mother. When Kevin helps Sam home, he discovers her secret drawer filled with toys and all bets are off in his mind. This is the third novel in the Heat Wave series. Fans of the previous two books will be excited to see the updates on some of the previous characters. Alannah Lynne’s books overflow with sizzling chemistry and passion. With each new book, the characters and storylines dive further into the land of eroticism. Crossing Lines is filled with sex toys and sexual explorations. Though this style of romance is not for everyone, most romance fans will be swept up in all of the passion. This book reunites old characters with several new ones and sets up the possibilities for future storylines. Romance readers will surely be on the lookout for what Alannah Lynne writes next. Notes: A copy of this book was provided for me to review. This review was originally posted on my website, Ariesgrl Book Reviews.

Loved this book! Loved the characters and the story. It made me laugh out loud in parts of it which I like in a book.

The 3rd book in the Heat Wave series is just as hot as its predecessors. Loved the chemistry between Kevin and Sam (don’t you dare call her Samantha!), loved Kevin’s tender side when he takes care of Sam after she hurt herself, just melted my heart and oh how Sam’s daughter pulls at Kevin’s heartstrings. Add in some personal issues that each has, but it always comes down to their growing feelings for each other and their hot sexual attraction, there’s a big connection between them. I enjoyed having some of the previous characters show up, always great to hear how they are doing. Alannah puts so much emotion in her words, her books are scorchers, if you haven’t read the previous stories make sure you do.

Let me just start off by saying I could not put this book down. I was so excitedto hear that this was Kevin's story. I really wanted Kevin to have his Happily Ever After, and Sam could not be more perfect for him in all ways possible. This was an emotional story for me, I laughed, got angry, and even teared up a bit. Thank you Alannah for a fabulous read. Yiu never dissapoint! If you havent started the Heat Wave series yet, you are missing out on something special.
