Title: Crossing the Line
Author: Katie McGarry
Series: Pushing the Limits #1.1
About: Lila McCormick, Echo’s best friend from Pushing the Limits, first met Lincoln Turner when tragedy struck both their lives. But she never expected their surprise encounter would lead to two years of exchanging letters—or that she’d fall for the boy she’s only seen once. Their relationship is a secret, but Lila feels closer to Lincoln than anyone else. Until she finds out that he lied to her about the one thing she depended on him for the most.
Hurting Lila is the last thing Lincoln wanted. For two years, her letters have been the only thing getting him through the day. Admitting his feelings would cross a line he’s never dared breach before. But Lincoln will do whatever it takes to fix his mistakes, earn Lila’s forgiveness—and finally win a chance to be with the girl he loves.
My Thoughts: A short and sweet story, Crossing the Line by Katie McGarry lives up to what readers would expect out of her writing. I will admit that it’s been awhile since I read Pushing the Limits, so I didn’t remember Lila very well, but I found that wasn’t a problem. While this is very brief, I felt there was still enough information to understand the story and the characters.
There weren’t very many surprises, but that’s not unexpected given the brevity of this story: a mere 67 pages. That’s a fraction of her full-length novels. The only thing really missing is these characters’ full back story, and we know enough that it really isn’t missed.
Lila and Lincoln are as well-written characters as any others McGarry has given us in this amazing series. I read this right after having finished Take Me On, which I absolutely loved. (It was included as a bonus with the longer novel.) Without the afterglow of that, I think this would’be been a little less loved, but I’m not sure about that. I liked how everything played out, and that even with the lack of space in which to go into much depth, there’s plenty here for McGarry fans to fall in love with!
