Blurred Lines by Jen McLaughlin is a sweet, fun, and quick read. This is the first book I’ve read by Jen McLaughlin and although this is the fifth story in the series, you do not need to read the previous books to read Blurred Lines. I didn’t feel that I was missing out about any information on the characters.
I wanted to read this book the moment I read the synopsis.
Finding my fiancée naked on my couch might’ve been a good thing, if her ex-boyfriend hadn’t been with her. For the past eight years I’ve been a witness to the power of true love, but after getting burned I’d decided there wasn’t any hope for me finding it for myself. Until I met Noelle Brandt in a hotel bar. Maybe it wasn’t the most romantic meeting, but the moment I met her I knew I had to have her. The more I learn about her, the more I know I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her.
I’d already found the love of my life, but I’d lost that love forever. And I’d been lost ever since. But one night a wounded man makes all of that go away. He makes me laugh, live, and feel alive. When he tells me he has no intention of letting me go, I finally begin to believe in the power of true love again. That is, until I find out who he really is…and by then, it’s far too late to correct the mistakes we’ve already made. By the time we both know the truth, the lines have already been blurred beyond recognition.
I feel in love with Riley from his and Noelle’s first meeting. Even drunk he was sweet, funny, always trying to do the right things by his family, and his impeccable manners. You can feel the sparks fly between these two immediately. Will Noelle stay? Will Riley go against everything that been engrained in him all of his life to be with the woman who has finally made him feel for the first time in his life?
Jen McLaughlin gives you drama, steamy sex scenes, laugh out loud moments, and a few swoon worthy moments all within this story of two people who instantly feel something the moment they meet and what they will do once they learn the truth about the other. Although I did feel like there should have been more once the conflict occurred instead of it quickly wrapping up.
