FINE LINES jkwise1

Description

Kate knows life is filled with fine lines: the line between trusting and turning her back; the line between friends and lovers; the line between living on the edge and falling off of it.

Kate is a recovering addict from another kind of fine line—cocaine. She knows that dance can save her, but it’s hard to stay strong when her circle of friends—her only real family—keeps pulling her toward the life she is trying to leave.

When she finally steps outside of her circle, she meets sexy and sweet Marcos. He's older and more mature, and he seems like the perfect guy to pull Kate’s life in a different direction. However, he's more a part of her old world than she realizes. Marcos is the heir to the Vega drug cartel, and for his family, drugs aren't a hobby or a quick fix. Drugs are a deadly serious business.

Thank you for your comment, and thank you for taking the time to read my work. I really appreciate it. Are there any specific scenes or situations where you think more romance for Aaron and Kate would be good? Daisy and Pete aren't in my book, so I think that comment might be for someone else. Thanks again!

Well worth the read!!!!! This is an amazing book that gives a look into a dark lonely side to modern teenage life that has always been there but is evolving tremendously. The author gives insight to Kate's thought process that addicts and ex-addicts of any age can understand and relate to. And while as an adult it's silly to think I was that boy crazy at one point, J.K. Wise nails it and how it can cloud our initial judgments and make decisions harder then we want them to be. Perfect book I'd buy it now!!!!

Similar Stories : None. I do not know of any book that gives this much depth of feeling to the loneliness of teenage life, the pull of drugs, and the confusion of love for this generation.

Only just finished chapter 3. So far, the writing is great. It flows well, and the dialogue feels genuine. My only thought while I was reading, is that this to me, reads more like New Adult, which brings to mind Paper Princess, by Erin Watt - another YA book that blends adult themes. I'm curious to see where this goes 😀
