Amber "AJ" Johnson is a freelance writer who has her heart set on becoming a full-time sports reporter at her paper. She has one chance to prove herself: capture an interview with the very private goalie of Baltimore's hockey team, Alec Kolchak. But he's the one man who tries her patience, even as he brings to life a quiet passion she doesn't want to admit exists.

Alec has no desire to be interviewed--he never has, never will. But he finds himself a reluctant admirer of AJ's determination to get what she wants...and he certainly never counted on his attraction to her. In a fit of frustration, he accepts AJ's bet: if she can score just one goal on him in a practice shoot-out, he would not only agree to the interview, he would let her have full access to him for a month, 24/7.

It was a bet neither one of them wanted to lose...and a bet neither one could afford to win. But when it came time to take the shot, could either one of them cross the line?

About the Author

Lisa grew up with an overactive imagination, strong encouragement from her parents, and an insatiable infatuation with the Peanuts gang. That infatuation—along with an impatience she has yet to outgrow—jump-started her love of writing. After all, why should she be forced to wait a whole week to read the stories of her favorite characters when she could create stories for them whenever she wanted? 

That love of writing continued to grow, along with all those voices in her head, even during her assorted careers: first as a firefighter with the Baltimore County Fire Department, then a very brief (and not very successful) stint at bartending in east Baltimore, and finally as the Director of Retail Operations for a busy Civil War non-profit.

Lisa currently lives in Maryland with her husband and two sons, one very spoiled Border Collie, two cats with major attitude, several head of cattle, and entirely too many chickens to count.

You may find Lisa on Facebook at or reach her via email at She's also on Twitter @LBKamps, but admits she's still trying to figure that one out!

I simply loved this story. I'm mostly a mistery reader, and I did not know what to expect from a genre I don't usually read. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it, I liked the fast pace and the humor. It shows a lot of sensitivity and it's very romantic. It basically kept me reading the whole morning until I finished it. Lisa is a great writer, a really like her style.

Crossing the Line (Baltimore Banners #1) by Lisa B. Kamps Amber Johnson is on a mission to become a full-time sports reporter, her assignment to get an interview with Baltimore Banners goalie, Alec Kolchak, the man who does not do interviews. I love how Amber gets Alec to give her an interview, and I appreciate Alec’s terms. It ends up making a fun and unexpected story. I really like both characters. Amber is persistent and smart. Alec is caring and sweet. I mean a real tough hockey player... Being someone who frequently suffers from headaches, I empathized with Amber. I love that Alec was compassionate in those circumstances. Often people that do not suffer from the same affliction do not sympathize. Amber’s newspaper competition, Gerry Brown, is a slimy piece of work. He is untrustworthy and conniving, making the story interesting. I love Ian Donovan. He is a good friend to both Amber and Alec. I also like Amber’s editor, Tim Norton; he is a smart man. Crossing the Line was well-written and entertaining read. I really enjoyed the story and had a hard time putting it down. Complimentary copy provided via in exchange for an honest review.

I have found a new series to start :) I really enjoyed this book. Very easy characters to fall in love with. There were a couple of places where words were missing, but it was very easy to figure out what was meant to be there. I do wish the author had elaborated on AJ's past article that she was so worried about. It was mentioned many times but never explained. I also wish that it had explained what Alec meant when it said He had a plan at the end of one chapter... Just left you hanging with what his idea was. Overall it was a great read :)
