Crossed Lines by Lana Sky
Genre: contemporary romance
Publisher: self published
Publication Date: August 14, 2019
This being my first Lana Sky book, I did not know what to expect. But I did not expect this book to hurt my heart, rattle my bones and touch my soul. It might seem like I am over exaggerating but I have never been this affected by a story.
I have read a lot of age gap romances none like this. This story was raw and heartbreaking from the start. I knew Maryanne was in too much pain and not just acting out because of boredom. Even if it felt like she was being unbearable just for the heck of it, you could see her sadness through the cracks. And that broke something in me. I fell insanely in love with her and I can’t get over her.
James Thorne can take full control of my life, ruin it and return it back to me and I’d still thank him. He is so surly and growly and broken and I fell helplessly in love with him. The tender side of his that peaked out of the sour one gave me heart palpitations. This man just wants love and BY GOD I would have fought for him no matter what.
I am going to be thinking about this story for a long long time and honestly I want to re-read right now.

Psychopath. Borderline. Crazy.
Seventeen-year-old Maryanne Mayweather wears each term like a badge of pride. Expelled from her twelfth boarding school, she lands on the doorstep of her flighty aunt Elaine and Elaine’s husband James, one more screw-up away from being made a ward of the state.
Once a successful author, the last thing James Thorne wants is to care for his wife’s bratty teenage niece, especially with his marriage falling apart. When Maryanne crafts an elaborate plan to defame and destroy him, they both discover that words are more powerful than either of them could imagine. And as their relationship goes down a path neither envisioned, the consequences are swift and far-reaching.
Some lines weren’t meant to be crossed.
