RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW: THE LINE BETWEEN BY TAMSYN BESTER

Synopsis:

 

There’s a fine line between love and hate, so fine that you don’t know you’ve lost balance until it’s too late.
I’m not sure exactly when I lost my balance, all I know is that he was to blame.Dane Winters.The boy who’d spent most of his life hating me for reasons I never understood.

** ** ** ** ** **
It was no secret that I hated her, but only I knew why.She was off-limits.And then our separate worlds collided with one tragedy.

It wasn’t her fault, I knew that, but I wanted her to hurt the way I did, and I needed someone to blame. She was an easy target.
Kennedy Monroe.

The girl I’d picked on all our lives.

And the woman I barely tolerated.

Until the line between love and hate was no longer visible…

Excerpt:

PROLOGUE
Dane
16 Years Old
I STOOD TO the side, watching it all unfold in the wings. Jason’s voice grew louder, and attracted the attention of the students passing in the hall. Kennedy looked around, her eyes growing frantic, her cheeks reddening in embarrassment. I played Varsity football with Jason, he was the all-star quarterback, and while I thought the guy was a complete tool, what I disliked most about him was his interest in Kennedy Monroe. He was a senior; she was a sophomore like me, and he could have his pick of any girl in the school – why did it have to be her?
“Jason, please, can we go somewhere private and talk about why you’re freaking out?” Kennedy’s voice was soft, and filled with desperation.
“Is it true?” Asked Jason. He towered over Kennedy’s small frame, and if I hadn’t orchestrated this whole thing I would’ve told him to back the fuck off and leave her alone. But I couldn’t. Because she was the enemy.
For as long as I could remember, my father had warned me about the Monroe family. He told me to stay away from them, that their family had hated ours since our forefathers had founded this town. For a while, I listened, I stayed away, and I allowed my father’s apparent hatred for the Monroe family to become my own. It wasn’t until after we returned from this past summer that it all changed.
Kennedy had changed. In just three short months, she went from a gangly, dorky teenager to a gorgeous, stunning girl who intruded my every thought, both in sleep and consciousness. She’d started school a year earlier, making her younger than the rest of us, and what I thought she lacked in social graces she definitely made up for in smarts. She embodied everything I wanted, but couldn’t have. And that’s what had led me here.
“Is what true? I don’t know what’s gotten in to you, but we can’t do this in front of the entire school.”
Kennedy’s voice brought me back to the present, and I straightened, leaning against my locker on the opposite side of the hallway.
“Open your locker, Kennedy.”
I stiffened when Jason’s tone grew harder, but reminded myself that I had to watch rather than get involved and stop it.
Kennedy fiddled with the combination on her locker, and as soon as it popped open, the photos fell out. They consisted of pictures of Jason, close ups of his face, of him at practice, and I even managed to get a few of him at home in his room. It was all very stalker-ish.
I’d outdone myself, and couldn’t help the wicked grin on my face.
“What the hell?” Jason bellowed, picking up a few of the pictures scattered on the floor. “I can’t believe it, he was right.”
My grin fell slightly, and I hoped to God he didn’t mention my name.
“These aren’t mine,” Kennedy said quickly. “I swear, Jason, they aren’t.” She reached out to grab his arm, but he pulled away.
“I didn’t take these!” Kennedy held a few pictures in her hands, and looked up at Jason as if he’d believe her. I knew he wouldn’t. I’d made sure of it.
“Then why are they in your locker?”
“I-I don’t know,” Kennedy replied.
With a shake of his head, Jason looked between Kennedy and her locker on last time. “Dane was right,” – fuck – “You’re a freak.”
Students laughed, and Kennedy slammed her locker shut before running towards the girls’ bathrooms, tears glistening on her face.
It was a dick move, but that feeling of morbid satisfaction uncurled itself in my stomach. It was just too easy.
“You actually did it.”
I looked to the side, and saw my best friend Reid standing next to me.
“Of course I did.”
Reid sighed. “You are such an asshole.”
I pushed away from my locker, and slipped the strap of my bag over my shoulder before heading towards my next class.
“I know.”

 

 

 Review:

Omg I have read every book from this author and this is by far some of her best work yet!

We meet Dane-who is the BIGGEST a••shat I’ve probably ever read about! He’s mean, a bully and you just want to high five him with a chair to the face! I wanted to strangle him so bad!! He’s not your typical book boyfriend and I think that’s why you are still drawn to his evil ways!

Kennedy- god love her heart. Dane bullies and makes life miserable for Kennedy any chance he gets. His main goal in life is to make her life a living hell if he has it his way. Their families are enemies so that only adds more fuel to the fire as Kennedy just wants to ignore him and live her life. She wants him to leave her alone but Dane has other plans.

These two end up at the same college and their attraction is undeniable! Kennedy doesn’t understand how can you hate somebody so much, but also want them so bad the same time?! The love/hate banter between these two are off the charts hot! I needed a cold shower and some chocolate after reading the sexual tension between these two. It is STEAMY!!!

Finally somewhere deep down inside Danes heart he decides he can’t fight his feelings for Kennedy and he gives in to temptation. Neither wanting to admit their feelings after all these years the build up leaves you with so much angst! Will Kennedy give in to Dane or will she push him even further way. Can she really trust the man she hates most in this world? Is Dane serious or is this just another evil way to hurt Kennedy again? Will their families ever resolve their differences for the sake of Dane and Kennedy being together? Go one click now! You will be left reeling and wanting more!

I give it 4.5 stars! Tamsyn will have you on the edge if your seat. This is a must read of 2015!!
