I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Cait knows it’s dangerous to want her boss, Jaimison. He’s handsome and likes to control the boardroom. But who controls the bedroom?
I”m a big fan of Megan Hart so I was eager to read this novella. And while the hot scenes are hot, I was overall disappointed.
For me, the main draw to Hart is her complicated and multi-layered characters and touching story lines. Sadly, this story didn’t really have any of that. It’s more mainstream erotica, around for the hot steamy scenes, and not much else. Cait is strong and independent boardroom woman, good at her job and smart and sexy. But there’s not a lot of personality there. She doesn’t have any quirks or tells or interesting thing about her. I imagine her just a nameless woman in a grey suit. Jaimison is the same. We’re told he’s sexy and wolfish and dangerous and controlling. We’re told he’s powerful and hungry and desirable. But there wasn’t anything in the book that lead me to believe it. I wasn’t blow away by either character. They seemed bland.
Onto the story – fooling around with your boss. There was so much potential but in the end, the story wasn’t very interesting. Not a lot happens, and I didn’t even care if Jaimison wound up with Cait or not. There didn’t seem to be that much at stake for either of them and by the end of the book, I was more confused how these two characters had found any lasting real emotion with each other when most of the time it seemed like just hooking up.
Overall, I was disappointed by Crossing The Line.
Rating 4 Not My Cup of Tea
