Love is the one emotion they just can’t shake off.

Part One of a Three-Part Story.

Chloe McCarthy has one rule when it comes to sex: one night, no strings. But for Logan Tanner, she made an exception. 

Big mistake.

When he breaks off their ongoing friends-with-benefits arrangement for someone else, reality hits her hard. She’s all alone and plummeting toward rock bottom. Until she runs into the one guy who can always make her smile. Matt Langston–mechanic by day, bouncer by night, ripped-and-tattooed-hot 24/7.
Matt would know that pink-tipped platinum-blonde hair anywhere. It’s Chloe, doing a half-naked walk of shame. He knows she’s no saint. Then again, neither is he–but he’s no douchebag either. Her slumped shoulders and tear-stained cheeks ignite his protective instincts even as his better sense warns him she’s a threat to his no-drama lifestyle.

As their friendship deepens, however, mutual desire reaches the boiling point. Chloe’s body hungers for Matt as a lover–but the last thing she wants is to ruin the best thing that’s ever happened to her with the best sex of her life…
Warning: This romance is appropriate for age 18+ only.
*The Fragile Line is a spin-off to The Fine Line, told in an addicting three-part romance novella series, with each part building on the last. Parts One, Two, and Three must be read in order. Reading The Fine Line first is not necessary, but will provide a further introduction to the characters which may enhance the overall reading experience.

The only way to have her heart’s desire is to risk losing it all.


Part Two of a Three-Part Story

Chloe wants more than anything to FML–follow Matt’s lead. It feels right to be with him, even with his family. But in the past, every time she’s given her trust, it has torn a chunk out of her heart.

Things are moving too fast, but she feels powerless to put on the emotional brakes. She senses Matt is holding something back. Something that could spell the end of what they have.

Matt is ready to take the next step in his life. One dream calls to him with a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity. The other–Chloe–sears his soul with eyes that tell him she’s not ready to follow.

Long ago, he gave forever love a chance and got burned in the most humiliating way imaginable. This time, the only thing he can offer is one night they can both look back on. And hope that one day, the warmth of that memory will draw her back into his arms.

Warning: This romance is appropriate for age 18+ only.

When the last spark of hope fizzles, love can light the way home.

Part Three of a Three-Part Story
In her heart, Chloe knows she’s done the right thing to let Matt go. Her old life of clubbing, drinking, and hookups is over, but she isn’t finished growing into the person she wants to be, much less a woman who’s worthy of Matt’s love.

She’s not exactly moving on, but she’s moving forward. Until she catches a glimpse of Matt on TV as one of the cast of the American Muscle reality show.And that’s not all. He’s holding hands with his co-star, Dalton Davis’s beautiful daughter, Ava.

When Chloe walked away from Matt, he made a decision: he’d wait for her as long as it took. Meanwhile, he doesn’t see any harm pretending to be with Ava just to appease her father–at first. But he can’t pretend, not even for the cameras. Trouble is, Chloe has only seen half the story–the half that’s a lie.

It may take a tragedy to bring her close enough to tell her–and show her–the whole truth.

Warning: This romance is appropriate for age 18+ only.

This serial is kind of meh. It is well written and decently paced, but as short as the story is, I didn’t really get a chance to connect or become invested enough in any of the characters. I just felt like even for a series novella, it should have been a tad longer. This was more of a personal preference, though. If you are fan of novellas, give these a try.

Alicia Kobishop is a contemporary romance writer who lives in Milwaukee, WI, USA with her husband and two children.

Before trying her hand in writing, she worked her way up in the field of administrative healthcare with experiences ranging from working within a large local healthcare organization, to smaller independent physician practices.

In early 2013 her life took a change of course when she re-evaluated her passions in life, and sought out to try many new things. She reclaimed her childhood passion for reading, and after reading tons of fictional novels in a short amount of time, and loving every moment of it, she became absorbed with the idea of taking her experience with books to the next level, and decided to write one. Nine months later, her debut novel, The Fine Line was published.
